Cilj niiti Cront xiit i}nxnn ot e l ook. AGRICULTURE. Lectures by aENTLEMEN you will please take careful notes of these lectures. Lecturing students is somewhat new to me, though I have spoken much on the stage. Agriculture is founded on the sciences of Geology and Chemistry, The composition of air is Oxygen 20.96 per cent Nitrogen 79.00 per cent and Carbolic Acid 0.04 per cent. The Carbolic Acid is most used up by vegetation, but the rain brings it down. There are three theories about the earth, Tvr that the earth is a solid crust, with a molten interior. Secomi thsit it is solid clear through, and 77« ' r that it is all solid, with a belt of molten strata all around it. The earth must be solid or it would fly all to pieces, and the rising tides would carry the earth with it. The earth is more than 20,000,000 years old and is divided into five periods. The Arcadean, The Pleozoid, The Mezoid, The Cauzoid, The Quadionary and The Silorian. Rocks are horn blend granite and carbonacious and Divonian — about 400 species 100 feet thick in the middle of the country. The Arcadean rocks are clays and appetites, equal to phosphate of lime, and used for fertilizers by mixing lime with it; and it is the chief source of plant life. The Pleozoid time was the Silvaran age full of animal life. The Divorian age is called the age of fishes. The Carboniferous age rocks, are quarts grit and they grind it up to make mill stones. The mountain grass of Kentuckey belongs to this period. The Permian time, the air began to loose its acid and lizzards to to crawl. The Missosaric time is divided into the Triac and the Juric. The Cauezoic period is devided into Tersary and Quadionary. The Guartinean Age had ice 6,000 feet thick and it moved south because it was melting. Fol- lowing came the Sham plain and the Terrce and man lived with animals in the mountains. Then came the iron stone and bronze age of minerals and agriculture. There are thirteen elements that plants must have in order to reproduce. The earth is being exhausted of nutriment ; one hectare of land receives annually 37.5 kilogram Chloids of Sodium, 1.8 kilo Chloids of Cardimon, 7.2 kilo Chloids of Potassium, 2.5 kilo Chloids of Magenta 8.4 Sulfate of Solomon and 6.2 Lime. I did ' nt get all, nor undustand any of it. He said these rocks were amorphus, but he couldnt explain what that was, and said we need ' nt write it. 90
