ESSENTIALS FOR NEW GARDEN PLOT First Thing to Do Is to Remove , . AIL Dead Weeds and Trash of Any Sort. GOOD DRAINAGE: IS REQUIRED I Plowing or Spading Should Be Done j at Earliest to*»ible Moment-- I Best Plan to Prepare Soil for Planting at Needed. (Prepared' by tie United States Department of Agriculture.) Hie first problem In preparing the land for a garden that has been used; for this purpose Is to remove all dead | weeds, sticks, stones, lioshes and trash j of any sort. Briers and bushes should be dng up by -the roots so they will not sproot again. Good drainage la essential to a successful garden. H thw laud is not well drained, this should be corrected as the first sfcp in making the -garden. TU* drains'may" be used or the lend ' may be bedded b? plowing It in long, narrow lanes,.leaving the middle fur- nun as drainage ditches. In. the case rf garden* spaded and worked by band the same results may be bad by bed- xf up the soiL Vegetables will not thrive in poorly droinecUsoil no matter 'how much cafe' Is given "them. -'^J Break j Soil Early. '. --Plowing or' spading should be done- 'at the earliest possible moment in or- 'fier that In sections of the country ·vv^iore freezhif,' occurs tlie soil may be subjected to freezing so that It will be broken up by the action of the frost and be mellow and friable when planting begins. Nothing aids in the preparation of soil, and especially stiff soils, like freezing and thawing. It is especially important that ground in sod be plowed and the grub-worms and other hibernating, insects and worms mtfy be destroyed.' .Where severe 'freezing is sure to oc- .cur after the plowing^.is clone little 'harm will be done by plowing ttio 'ground .while wet. Otherwise the ground'should not be plowed until fairly dry, or ..clods will result ' '.. . . * .Lime'Important. "If 18 ~an w excellent plan to make »n a'p'pHc'ation'.o'f air-slaked lime or-ground limestone-to the-freshly-plowed soil In .orrter-that-it-may have time to correct 'acidity before-planting time arrives. The manure should not be applied with the iinie, as loss of nitrogen will occur ·nnder these, circumstances. The ILme should be.applied.and become mised with the soil before the, manure is applied. The manure should be of a good grade, stable manure cither from horses or cattle preferably.,. Manure that ·las straw bedding material miied with it Is best, and should be'.npplled at the rate of 25 or 30 tons per. acre or from oOO to 400 pounds per .square rod. It Is an excellent plan^to prepare the soil for planting as needed ruther than to fit the whole garden at once. If the work of fitting the ground is done with a team it will not always be feasible to follow this plan. Ground that has not been used for gardening purposes should, in every ctlse where it is possible, be put in condition with a team, ns the.ground- should be cut up with a disk or cutaway harrow, thoroughly fining the soil as deeply ns it has been plowed, thoroughly mixing the manure with the sol!.

Energy is the most valuable thing in the world. You need energy. e v e r y day, every minute of the day. It is the same behind _ the lines, in the work Bhop, and on the farm. What is most needed is iron in the blood. Every mantshould have as much iron in his..body as, is-contained in an j .ordinary "tenpenriy." nail. If your | blood is thin, watery, your face pale and anemic, or pimply, you feel depressed, blue, without energy to complete your daily tasks. It's time to heed the warning. Put fresh, clean blood in your veins, .take ; "Irontic" Tablats, a new combination of soluble iron and herbal extracts discovered by Dr. Pierce'aid his Physicians of fche Surgical Institute in Bufiajo, N. Y. It gives one snap, pep, vhn and vigor to have this iron in the blood. "Iroatie"' is a Wood maker, a strength builder acd E nerve tonic. Yop can obtain "Irontic "'§t most drag stores, for sixty csnts'the vial, or you can ob- taia a test sending ten cents to the Invalids' -Hotel and Surgical IrfititnteiiuBnealo. N.
