WHY WE GROW SWEET CLOVER
Produces More Hay Than Other Crops
and Adds Nitrogen to Soil- -Al60
1. It will produce mee ha" on a
given soil than red clover, alsike or
2. It will grow on many soils too
poor to raise alfalfa or red clover suc
3. It is the only clover except white
clover that will stand pasturing with
cattle and horses.
4. It will add more nitrogen to the
soil than any other legume.
5. It will thrive with less lime, says
the Oklahoma Farmer, in the soil than
most other legumes although it will
not grow when the soil is too acid.
6. It will not bloat stock whether
fed wet or dry.
7. It has no plant disease; and it
will thrive and combat weeds or
grasses at the same time.
8. In pastures during a drouth,
sweet clover will keep green and
grew, when other clovers and grasses
have practically dried up.
a. Crops following a two-year rota
tion, with sweet clover will gain in
yield from 25 to 50 per cent.

we used to skim the milk, churn the
butter, lake it to town and bring home
anything the merchant would let us
have in exchange.
It is expansive to let a cow fall in
her milk because of the lack of proper

RAISE WHEAT ON CORN LAND
Investigation Shows That Crop Was
Much Larger Than on Any Other
Soil in Northwest.
A singular fact came to the at
tention of farmers of the north cen
tral slates during harvest time. When
ever wheat had been sown on corn
land the crop was much larger than
on any other soil. Investigation has
shown this to be the case on so many
farms that it is believed to be the
It is, perhaps, fair to assume that
in any scheme of crop rotation the
intelligent farmer looks to the ad
vantage of thorough cultivation be
fore anything else. Certainly he may
with propriety be so advised. But
the next wise step would be to let
wheat follow corn.
When land plainly shows the need
of a rest a couple of crops of colver,
millet or Canada peas serve the pur
pose. The farmer who is fitting cattle
or hogs for market needs corn and
other fodder and he will find profit in
this sort of diversification, perhaps
far beyond what he can gain from
raising wheat. The whole argument
ls in favor of an intelligent diversity
of crops as well as a thorough culti
vation of the soil.
WATERING CAN FOR POULTRY
Useful Drinking Fountain for Chicks
May Be Made Out of an Ordinary
Baking Powder Can.
An ordinary baking powder can may
b*> converted into a useful drinking
fountain for the -micks by a slight in
dentation, vz shown in the sketch.
When the rim has been pressed in
about two inches, water may bo
poured into the can and the top tit
ted tightly on. The can should be in
verted and placed outside of the coop,
where only the chicks can reach it, as
the hen is liable to turn it over un
less it is larger than the ordinary can.
It could probably be placed near
enough to the hen so that she could
just reach it to drink out of it.
Apples Nipped by Frost.
Apples nipped on the trees by early
frosts may be saved by spraying with
cold water to draw out the frost. This

professor of entomology of the Univer

for that state, who conducted several
experiments this fall in the experimen

apple is brought back and it is left

Feed for Colts.
After the colt has been weaned he
6hould be supplied with all the good
clover hay he will eat, being allowed
to feed off the ground. A liberal sup
ply of chopped oats should form a part
of the ration, and it may be made more
palatable and digestible by pouring
boiling water over them and allowing
them to stand in a closed vessel a few
hours before feeding.
