All this over emphasis of tho un

of newspaper and literary standards,

is nonsensical, of course. In its ele

as stern a Job as Journalism, albeit th?

RAISE DEEP-ROOTED PLANTS
Properly Interspersed In a Rotation
They Do Much Good Alfalfa
Crops Needs Much Water.
Proporly intoraperacd in a rotation,
deep-rooted, plants will do a lot of
work for us that wo cannot do our
selvos, however willing, for wo enn
not reach tho sanio depths with Any
tillage innchlno, nelthor can wo In
stall millions of llttlo pumps to bring
back soluble fertility to tho surface.
Kven whore seasons nro udvorso to
curing alfalfa It can bo used for hog
pasturo and work for us day and night
throughout a long growing season,
says a writer In tho Denver Weekly
Post. In tho Irrigated dLtrlcts hogs
nro a considerable trouble during tho
busy summer senson, but they do
harvest a good deal of their own faod.
Tho alfalfa must uo dipped, it is true,
but wo save tho harvesting.
A hard and fast rulo as to when to
plow up alfalfa ovory two or threo
years will often result In Its destruc
tion at tho time it will do Its best ser
vice, especially on farms whero it has
had an abundance of water and tho
roots have not yet penetrated tho
hardpan. Investigation with a shovel
down four or five feet or less will
revcnl but llttlo penetration and that
only a little of tho alfalfa's ability to
draw fertility from the subsoil has
been exerted. Our natural Inclination
is to help a plant along all wo can,
nnd alfalfa responds so readily to
copious watering that frequent ap
plications aro sometimes made with
good results, so far as tho immedlato
crop is concerned, but which develop
on Inertia In root growth and causo
tho alfalf to feed Inrgely in tho upper
soil strata, and this is especially tho
case when no cultivation is given tho
crop and water passes rapidly over tho
surface, soaking It slightly, but nover
penetrating tho subsoil.
This result la, of course, commoner
on clays and impervious soils than on
sand or sandy loams, for In theso tho
water sinks easily and tho roots
descend in search of it. Thorough
cultivation will allow the water to
descend and bo stored for future uso
on heavy soils and encourago deep
rooting. There Is a strong tendency
from tho start with alfalfa to thin out,
becauso the seed sown produces a
great number of plants than can find
room. As they swell out and reach
maturity frequent waterings will keop
the stand thicker and result In a finer
hay, so that for a year or two it will
bo of superior quality.
It is about tho third year that tho
stronger plants have usually asserted
their domlnanco and taken what
Beems an undue amount of room.
but they will still fill tho space, and
If cut somewhat earlier than a thicker
growth will not bo conrse or woody,
and tho bulk or hay will not be serious
ly reduced. ,
Wo now have our cholco either to
break up tho field or run It In alfalfa
for a longer period for tho good It
does as a subsoller and a nitrogen
storer. Which will bo tho best plan
depends on a great variety of circum
stances, which alone should govern,
not some preconceived plan without
regard to tho benefits tho nlfalfa may
or may not bo far havo exerted on
the subsoil to anything llko Its full
capacity for betterment. If tho water
supply is somewhat limited wo havo
a crop which Is eminently adapted to
holp itself and make a profit whero
a sballowor rooted one will fall, and
meanwhile it exerts itself to go after,
tho water and deepens our soil for
ensuing crops. If, on tho other hand, tho
alfalfa has already gono down ten or
twelve feet it may havo accomplished
about all it Is capable of doing In tho
tlmo land can bo devoted to this crop.
Ono of tho fow plants that can bo
sown with much success In alfalfa to
thicken It up 1b winter ry,e, which doeB
well, very much increasing tho bulk of
tho first cutting and being palatablo
cured and stneked with tho alfalfa.
Chicory seems to bo ablo to take hold,
so far as I hirvo been able to test It,
but It needs a longer trial before rec
ommendation. Even whero alfalfa
is to be broken up In tho Bprlng some
crop to fill up and glvo a more sod

able. A clean hog is usually a well hog.
