FORAGE FOR HORSES
REPORT FROM NORTH PLATTE
EXPERIMENTAL SUB 8TATI0N.
RESULTS ON GROWING COLTS
Gome of tho Animals Raised Entirely
On Alfalfa, Whllo Others Wore
Not Given That Feed.
Tho Nebraska Agricultural Experi
ment Station has just issued Bulletin
130, entitled "Forage Rations for
Growing Horses." This Is Bulletin
No. 11 of tho North Platto Substation
Tho bulletin glvoB the results of
growing three lots of 10 colts each
from weaning tlmo until January 14
of the winter after they became
three years old, on different pasture
and forago rations. Lot 1 ate alfalfa
hay during tho winter and grazed on
alfalfa paaturo during the summer.
Lot 2 ate alfalfa hay during tho win
ter and grazed on native grass pas
ture during the summer. Lot 3 ato
pratrlo hoy and cane hay during tho
winter and grazed on native grass
pasture during tho summer. Each
lot was fed grain during tho first win
ter. Lot 3 was fed grain during tho
second winter, also. During tho third
summer all lots were given tho samo
toed, and the colts wcro all worked
Tho gain on alfalfa pasture during
the first summer was moro than twice
as much as on the native grass pas
ture, but during tho second summer
the colto that did not havo alfalfa at
any tlmo CLot 3) gained moro on the
native grass pasture than the colts
in tot 1 gained on the alfalfa pas
ture. During the first winter the gain of
the clots fed alfalfa hay was about
GO per cent moro than the gain of
those not fed alfalfa bay. After tho
first year, tho rate of gain depended
largely trn the condition of flelfh of
tho colts at the beginning of tho per
iod under consideration. Tho colts
fed prairie hay and cane hay in the
winter made a faster gain during tho
summer than those which had been
fed alfalfa during the winter. Also
tho, colts that grazed on nativo grass
pasture in the summer made more
galrr4dtrrrng'-tho winter when fed" al
falfa than the colts which grazed on
alfalfa pasture in tho summer and
were fed alfalfa in the winter. This
may be explained by the fact that an
animal thin in flesh gains faster
when given good conditions than an
animal already in good flesh.
During thg entire experiment tho
relative twins of the three lotB were:
Lot 1, 100; Lot 2, 90; Lot 3, 80. Tho
colts in Lot 1 gained 70 pounds moro
per head than those in Lot 2 and 140
ponnds more per head than those in
Lot 3. Tho cost of growing the colta
in Lot 1 was $65.30 per head, of those
tn Lot 2, $52.48 per head, and of
those in Lot 3 $45.48 per head. The
profit per colt was $27.46 after pay.
lng for all feed eaten, interest on the
Investment and loss. The labor of
caring for the colts is not considered.
The author concludes that it was
not profitable to pasture tho alfalfa,
at least after tho first summer, under
tho conditions prevailing at North
Platte. Under certain conditions it
may be proflatble to pasture alfalfa.
Feeding alfalfa hay during the win
ter was profitable.

WORK OF IRRIGATION.
Matters Discussed In the Late
gress at Salt Lake.
Labor Commissioner Guye and As
sistant Stato Engineer Roberts have
returned from tho national Irrigation
congress held at Salt Lako City last
week. Tho meeting was nn iutporlunt
ono In that it took up soma matters
that it is thought will bo beneficial to
tho country In tho futuro.
Ono of tho Important matters dis
cussed was tho opening up of new
lands in the lrlgatlon districts whoro
results have not been what Uioy ought
to have been. Formerly contracts
havo been made with settlors to fur
nish them water at $35 per acre, pay
able in ten installments, with a pro
viso that two crops can bo raised be
foro the paymonts begin. Jt has been
found necessary to change the tlmo of
payments, as two years is not suf
fflclent tlmo to enable a settlor with
llttlo means to develop the land, and
new contracts were made giving an ex
tension of time Bomo tlmo ngo and
making the payments $45 per acre. It
is sold that a new settler who under
stands llttlo of the scienco of irriga
tion cannot hope to dovelop his land
so that he can raise crops at a profit
for nearly flvo years, because of the
long tlmo It takes to got tho land brok
en up, the making of laterals and
othor necessary things to learn to
mako Irrigating farming a success.
Mr. Roberts says that it Is recogniz
ed that for the tlmo Nebraska has
been In tho irrigation business tho
stato has made a greater success of
It than any other state.
To Bhow what irrigation has done
for Nebraska in tho northwest portion
of tho stato, F. A. Wright, an attorney
of Scottsbluff who attended tho con
gress In Salt Lake City and called at
tho stato engineer's office, says:
"Probably no section of Nebraska
has shown a greater percentage of
prosperous growth than has the sec
tion around Scottsbluff. This is duo to
two causes water and sugar beets.
The sugar beet factory at Scotts
bluff this year will pay to tho
people within its territory over $1,000,
000. There aro now being prepared
for market and already sent to the
Scottsbluff factory 135,000 acres of
sugar beets. Tho factory pays $5,50
per ton on tho track, and tho beets
will run about fifteen tons to the acre.
In addition to this the tops, which aro
cut and 'left on the ground, are sold
to focdoro at from $3 to $4 an acre.
Tho operating expenses of the factory
for the run of 120 days, beginning
September 26, is about $250,000. All
this money pauses through the banks
of Scottsbluff and you can imagine
what that means to a town of 2,500
"Wo aro counting a great deal on
the next session of the state irrigation
congress, which meets in Bridgeport
on October 22, 23, and 24, to do much
toward bringing about a better condi
tion of tilings between the farmer and
the government," continued Mr.
Wright. "Whllo wo aro doing pretty
well ourselves, the new settlers need
a bettor chance to make good and wo
hopo that wo can make tho powers
that bo see things in tho same light
as wo do who have an object lesson
before us every day."
A Wilson and Marshall club was or
ganized by Fremont democrats at tho
closo of an address at the court houso
by Congressman Dan Stephens.
In company of a sheriff, Forrest Joy
left Lincoln for Mount Pleasant, la.,
where ho is charged with wifo deser

course when ho speaks boforo the Ne

Other Countries." It will bo his first
speech following the national election,
but he will not mention politics.
School for the Deaf.
To oppose tho proposed purchase of
land for tho stato school for tho deaf
In Omaha, D. O. Dwyer of Plattsmouth,
trustco of tho school, visited the board
of public lands and buildings. That
the school board should be self-supporting
or at least, partly so, Is tho
opinion of Mr. Dwyer, who is in favor
of purchasing property in tho country
bo that the Btudents may be taught tho
methods of farming. By this means,
Mr. Dwyer says, tho school will bo
