HYDRATED LIME For sweeting soils and improving the mechanical condition of the soil. Is free from injurious qualities. Hydrated Lime is as essential for producing some crops as a direct plant food. It is indispensable for the growth of all Clover, Alfalfa and Lawn Grasses. Hydrated Lime not only produces chemical changes, but also has a mechanical effect on the land. It will make clay soils more friable and open to both air and water and less susceptible to drouth. In light soils its action has a cementing tendency and helps the land to retain moisture. Price, per bag of 50 lbs., 50c. ADCO Artificial Manure is a powder, which when mixed with almost any non-woody vegetable waste, such as straw, leaves, weeds, and kept moist, gradually converts the mass into real manure fully equal to the barn-yard product in fertilizing power, but free from foul odor, weed seeds, flies, etc. Farm- ers, by utilizing corn stalks, straw, weeds, vegetable vines, can produce manure without the aid of livestock. The refuse should be arranged in layers, each layer being thoroughly saturated with water and then sprinkled with Adco in the proportion of 1 pound Adco to 25 pounds refuse, when dry. Nothing further is required beyond keeping the heap moist and wet, except perhaps turning it over once or twice to allow air to have access to the fermenting mass. In three to six months it will be converted into real manure of excellent quality. 25 pounds Adco is enough for 12 large wheelbarrow loads of garden waste, making % ton manure. Price, $2.00. 150 pounds Adco is enough for a bed 10x10 feet deep and 6 feet high, will make about 3 tons manure. Price, $10.50.
