Word comes from one of the lime factories that after August 1 there will be an advance of 25 cents per ton on bagged lime. This is because the price of paper has about doubled in the last year. Even if there should be no advance in bulk lime, orders should be placed at once. A number failed last year to get what lime they wanted because in the rush season the factories were unable to supply the demand. This is almost cer tain to occur every fall and spring for some time because the demand increases by leaps and bounds as farmers realize the great value of lime. The wise business farmer will place his order promptly. In this connection it is well to keep in mind what Dr. Thorne, one of the highest authorities on soil fer tility, says. He writes as follows: "'When the land begins to need lime it is a waste of time, energy, and money to continue to cultivate it until this need is supplied; for the economic use of every other fertilizing material, including ma nure, depends upon the lime sup ply.”
