GOOD GREEN MANURING CROP
Big Value of Sweet Clover ls to Turn
Under to Improve Soil-Foliage
Has Bitter Taste.
:(By C. B. HUTCHISON, Missouri Col
lege of Agriculture.)
The chief value of sweet clover for
Missouri conditions is as a green ma
nuring crop. Being a legume, lt has
,the power nf gathering nitrogen out of
.the air and storing lt in the soil by
?means of the bacteria which live upon
Its roots. Since it makes such a heavy
growth and does well on thin lands, it
makes a good crop to turn under to im
prove the soil.
The value of sweet clover as a pas
ture or hay crop ls much disputed.
Some farmers regard it as practically
worthless and consider it a weed, while
others apparently have had good suc
cess with feeding it Its foliage has a
bitter taste due to the Cumarin It con
tains and its stems have a tendency to
become woody ns they mature. If not
allowed to become too rank before pas
turing, or if cut for hay before the first
bloom buds appear, these two objec
tionable features may be avoided to a
considerable extent and very good feed
obtained. It lins been found, too, that
stock will learn to eat it and after be
ing fed or pastured on it do not object
to the bitter taste, as at first Since
it is a biennial, sweet clover may take
the place of red clover in the rotation
on those lands where the latter does
not thrive well, but on the best lands
lt cannot compete with either red clo
ver or alfalfa for hay.
The fact that the bacteria in the
nodules on its roots are capable of In
oculating alf alfi has led to the Idea
that lt ls a valuable crop to occupy the
land immediately before seeding al
falfa. This may sometimes be done,
but usually lands that have never
grown sweet clover need Inoculation
Tor lt as well as for alfalfa. It has
been found necessary to Inoculate the
soil on the experiment station field at
Columbia for sweet clover, and even
with this precaution considerable diffi
culty has been experienced In getting
a stand. It is evident, then, that it is
?frequently more difficult to obtain a
good stand that one might expect from
a general survey of the habits and
characteristic of the plant.
MOST PROFITABLE OF CROPS
Sweet Potato of Great Value as Food
for Human Beings and Animals;
Has Industrial Value.
Whether lt is to be used as a food
for the table, as a feed crop for ani
mais or a producer of starch, the sweet
potato Is probably one of the most
profitable crops the South Carolina
farmer can grow.
The best method of planting sweet
potatoes is with cuttings from vines.
If slip beds were not set out early
enough this year for plants to be suf
ficiently large for good vine cuttings at
this time, or If no slips were grown,
it is advisable to buy cuttings from a
neighbor. Planting slips ls more ex
pensive than vine cuttings. Besides,
the fungi which produce rots are less
?likely to be carried on a vine cutting
than on slips pulled directly from the
old potatoes. Thus potatoes grown
from vine cuttings will probably be
free." Irom rot than those grown from

The whole world loves a circus. The
exceptions are so few that they need
not count. To make a bid for atten

men and women to a knowledge that
one is worth knowing. It drives men
to schemes and women to dress ex
travagance. A man who had been of
some social consequence in his city
accepted a business position in a larger

assiduous attendance at the opening
of new plays. Only to the few did he
confess how insignificant were his
sleeping quarters or where he took his
meals. His excellent clothing and
his presence at theaters were taken
as an Indication of prosperity that
would provide a good home; he was

In the evening at Mercy hospital yon

bedtime voices, and the sound blends
into something sweet and dear which
hardly forms itself into words. To you
who have not heard it, it would seem
the strangest sort of music, coming
from all the wards and rooms and
balconies around you-on the lower
floor, on the upper, and sounding up
and down the stairs wherever you
might be. It is just the quiet little
chatter of many, many children
ready for sleep, and the doctors and
nurses have heard it every night for
20 years, and they wonder why lt Is

At a special performance In New
York a scene was being offered from a
new play in which the principal male
character had occasion to quote the
"seven ages of man" speech from
Shakespeare. He read the lines with
such telling effect that the audience
burst into prolonged applause, tempo
rarily stopping the action of the piece.
In the pause that succeeded the out
burst a sophisticated looking youth
of a typical Broadway aspect was ob
served by one who sat just behind
him to lean sideways and remark lu,

New Flying Target.
To take the place of clay pigeons,
glass balls and similar flying targets
used by sportsmen in gun practice, a
small, propeller shaped device has been
brought out in France, says the Popu
lar Mechanics Magazine. It ls made
of steel and ls shot into the air by
the strong spring of an Instrument
which revolves It rapidly as it is re
ltased. The object can be made to
ascend to a considerable height, and
then planes for some distance before
commencing to fall. As soon as it ls
struck by a shot, however, its rotary
motion stops and it falls to the ground.
Aside from the matter of cost, an ad
vantage of the device is that it may
be carried in the pocked.

There have been thousands of ex
amples furnishing proof of the in
creased yields resulting from the
plowing under of a legume crop,
and there is probably not a far
mer who has not seen many such
examples, but still, we seldom grow
more than the smallest acreage of
legumes and still more scddom plow
The explanation is simply that
the average farmer not only does
not believe what he hears and reads
about such matters, but he does
not even believe what he actually
sees with his own eyes. He sees
the results, but does not believe
that the plowing under of the
legumes is the real caupe of these
results. He really believes that
there is some other explanation and
that the same results would not fol
low for him. No other explana
tion can possibly account for our
continued cultivation of poor soils,
when legumes will make them rich,
or at least legumes will double the
yields of our soils without the loss
of a single pound of the crops now
grown. Truly, the way of the un
believer is hard!-Progressive Far

Plant Food in Cotton Seed.
A ton of cotton seed does not
contain more than about $15 worth
of plant foods, so it is evident that
seed ought to be sold when they
bring ?40 a ton; but no man should
forget the fact that when he sells a
ton of cotton seed he sells or throws
in with the seed about ?15 worth
of his farm. And if he does not
want to reduce the size of his farm
-the size of his crops-he must
put back the plant foods sold in
the ton of cottonseed. He can do
this for about $2.50 invested in
phosphoric acid and potash and $2

it back for $15 in commercial fer

SAYS BIG EATERS GET KIDNEY
Take a Glass of Cold Water and Kid
neco to Flush Kidneys if Back
Omit All Meat From Diet if You Feel
Rheumatic or Bladder Bothers.
The American men and women mus
guard constantly against kidney trouble'
because we eat too much and and all
our food is rich. Our blood is filled
with uric acid which the kidneys strive
to filter out, they weaken from over
work, because sluggish; the elimina
tive tissues clog and the result is kid
ney trouble, bladder weakness and a
general decline in health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead, your back hurts or the urine
is cloudy full of sediment or you are
obliged to seek relief two or three times
during the night; if you suffer with
sick headache or dizzy, nervous spells,
and stomach, or have rhumatism when
the weather is bad, get from any drug
druggist about one dozen kidneco tab
lets; take one with a glass of water be
fore each meal for a few days and
your kidneys will then act fine. This
famous remedy is made from perfectly
harmless ingredients and acts quickly
and has been used for generations to
flush and stimulate clogged kidneys;
to neutralize the acids in the urine so
it no longer is a source of irritation,
thus ending bladder disorders.
Kidneco is inexpensive; cannot in
jure, make no mistake, insist on kidne
co, it belongs in every home, because
nobody can make a mistake by having
a kidney flushing any time.
