told tho magistrate, and continued:
"You and Mr. Lloyd-Cleorgo have a
lot of trouble ahead of you. You
will have to do tho dirty work, and
you will have plenty of it."
The women all refused tl)o option
which was offered them of paying a
fine instead of going to prison.
While a deputation, which Chan
cellor ol' Exchequer David Lloyd

overwhelming force of police, and
women were being arrested for re

Explosivos by Mai!.
London, Jan. ?IO.-Suffragette vio
lence of tho most diabolical and cow
ardly character reached the point to
day where Premier Asquith and
other members of tho British cabi
net have been solemnly warned to
guard carefully against careless
handling of packages mailed to them
through the post office for fear they
might contain internal machines.
This danger was revealed by the
explosion of a number of glass tubes
as they were hoing taken from the
letter boxes by postmen. Investiga
tion revealed that the tubes had boen
lilied with an explosive acid. They
had been addressed to Premier As
quith, Chancellor David Lloyd-George
and other calbnet members. If the
women's plan had worked success
fully, the statesmen probably would
have been blinded in opening tito
Plaining Letters for Vote Enemies.
Women also mailed a number of
letters which, on being exposed to

Forage Crops for Swine.
Bulletin 242 of the Ohio station
tells of tests made 'there to deter
mine the best crops to furnish green
grazing for swine. The steadily In
creasing price of grain and concen
trated feed stuffs make gradna, crops
of growing Importance. Besides, lt
is well known that grazed swine are
much less liable to disease than swine
raised in confinement and restricted
to dry feed. These were the consid
erations which moved the station to
enter upon theso studies.
The pigs used were pure Duroc
Jerseys, bred at the station, and the
valions lots of pigs selected for the
comparative tests were made as near
ly uniform in age, weight and thrift
as possible. Tiley weighed 5)5 pounds
eaeii at the beginning.
Tho concentrates used were
ground corn, soy bean meal and di
gester tankage, guaranteed to con
tain 00 per cent of protein, fed night
and morning in tho form of a thick
Some lots had skim milk, and In
every caso theso made rapid Kains,
confirming results of previous exper
iments at this station showing the
high value of skim milk for growing
pigs. All feed stuffs were propor
tioned by weight.
In the first experiment Lot 1 was
fed corn and skim milk In a dry lot;
Lot 2 had corn and soy bean meal in
a dry lot; Lot 3 had corn alone in
dry lot; Lot 4 had corn and ran on
a mixed pasture of timothy and blue
grass; Ix>t 6 had corn and ran on
red clover .pasture.
Rating tho corn at fifi cents per
bushel, skim milk at 15 cents per
100 pounds, soy beans at $1.50 lier
100 pounds and pasturage at $4 per
acre for the 0 2 days of the test, the
following results figured out:
1. For every 100 pounds gain In
weight the mixed pasturage took the
place of 103 pounds of corn, and
the clover pasture was equal to 142
pounds of corn, as compared with
the gains of the lots having no pas
2. Calculated In money value, the
mixed pasturage was equal to 142
pounds of corn, as compared with
the gains of the lots having no pas
A second experiment, lasting 76
days, was a test of the value of soy
bean pasturage, rape pasturage, red
clover pasturage and a mixed pastur
age of blue grass and white clover.
Though an extreme drouth prevailed,
greatly damaging tho pasturage
crops, lt was found that, valuing
corn at 56 cents a bushel, each acre
of pasturage was equal to the follow
ing values in corn, to wit: Blue
grass and white clover, $5.82; red
clover, $11.06; soy bean pasture,
$15.00; rape pasture, $16.05.
The high value shown by tho rape
pasturage is partly due to the fact
that the lot of pigs grazed 011 this
pasturage had tankage In their grain
feed; so that tho largo content pro
tein In tho tankage made up what
rape lacks In protein. Whero corn
is the only dry feed given, the soy
bean pasturage would make a better
showing than rape, as the soy bean
is rich in protein.
Three other forage crops were
used in another test, namely: Sowed
corn, sorghum and a mixture of Can
ada Held peas and oats sown to
gether. Results of this test, how
ever. Indicated that neither of these
crops was as valuable for grazing
swine- as eil lier red clover, rapo or
soy bean pasturage. When grazed
off once, these crops did not send up
a new growth from the samo roots
as do clover, rape and soy beans, and
herein lies their chief defect.
Among the lessons learned In the
course of these experiments are the
Spring sown forage crops should
be used to supplement those that
come over from the winter and be
come available much earlier, such
as red clover, rape, barley, alfalfa,
and so forth.
Redeeming Washed Land'..
In many of the older States hill
side lands of old farms, where by
neglect to terrace and properly till
them at right angles to their slope
the eroding effect of heavy rans has
been left without check, have been
entirely denuded of their soil, leav
ing only bare, bald clay subsoil, and
even that badly gullied and broken.
This ls especially true of lands whose
top soil was loose sand.
Many such farms have been aban
doned In Ohio, while tho occupants
i of many others are having an une
qual strugglo to make them yield a
The Ohio station tells, In Circu
lar No. 129, of a large measure of
success attained In redeeming such
farms by the use of molllotus, or
sweet dover to r?clothe them; mix
ing tho humus from the tops and
roots of the sweet clover with the
top six to twelve inches of the clay
to for?a a now soil capable of pro
ducing crops that will yield a fair
return for tho labor and expense of
planting, cultivating and harvesting
It ls estimated that there aro now
moro than a million acres of lands
in Ohio so badly eroded as to be
worthless; and constant, cropping
with corn, wheat and timothy, with
out manuring of any sort, ls stead
ily adding to this area of ruined farm
land. In many cases, close cropping
of the thin grass on tho hillsides by
sheep has encouraged tho tendency
to wash, and the beaten paths made
by the sheep soon become gullies.
Having observed that sweet clover
grows luxuriantly In roadside gullies,*
in railway cuts and other places
where thc clay is exposed the author
of this circular determined to make
a test of its virtues as a restorative
of the abandoned fields denuded of
their soil and washed full of gullies.
Indeed in Ohio sweet clover is a way
side weed, so easily does it take hold
and so persistently does it hold Its
ground. But, like all members of
the clover family, it takes readily
only to such lands as have a large
content of lime. It has been exten
sively used to restore to fertility the
worn-out or run-down cotton planta
tions of those portions of Mississippi
and Alabama having lime soils and
There aro four varieties'of sweet
clover, but only two are worthy of
note. These aro the white-flowered
and yellow-flowered. The white, or
melllotus alba, ls the larger, more
vigorous and robust 01 these two.
Its plants reach a height of 5 to 8
feet in the second year of Its growth,
covering the ground with an enorm
ous mulch, while the roots fill the
ground with an immense quantity of
vegetablo matter. These roots, '.Ike
the roots of all legumes, harbor bil
lions of bacteria which gather nitro
gen from the air and store lt In the
soil. In the earlier stages of its
growth melilotus so closely resem
bles alfalfa that It Is often mistaken
f ^r that plant, Its wide range of
adaptability is indicated by tho fact
that it hai been used as a soil reno
vator with great success in Califor
nia. Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Ken
tucky, Mississippi and Alabama. But
in all cases lt must have lime; and
if the soil hasn't a natural supply of
lime, then two to four tons per acre
of ground limestone meal or oyster
shell meal or one to two tons of
slaked lime should be applied.
In the course of tho investigations
made by the author or the circular,
he received 1,882 reports from Ohio
farmers In answer to letters sent out
by him asking several qeustions
about melllotus on their farms. In
this way he found lt growing in 88
counties of that State. More than
nine-tenths of these reports located
it along roadsides. In less than 4
per cent of the reports was It located
in pastures, and In less than 2 per
cent was lt found In cultivated fields.
In 257 cases it was reported as being
grazed by live stock, and 125 had
found it valuable for hay, while 295
had used lt ws a soil restorer on
worn-out fields and as a green ma
Yet the laws of Ohio until recently
classed melilotus as a weed pest and
imposed the duty of its destruction
upon *he owners of lands adjoining
the highways under severe penalties.
Melllotus gets its name of sweet
clover from the fact that when the
plant cures lt gives off a vanllla-llk*
odor and has a like flavor. For this
reason animals must be starved inte
using lt at first, but they soon acquire
a taste for lt and thereafter mani
fest as great fondness for lt as th?
tobacco chewer for his favorite weed
For hay, melllotus should be cul

should be handled much as alfalfa

cutting can bo made In 40 to 6(
days, owing to the weather. Th<

Plckcns Man Invents Hay Saver.
John F. Harris, of Pickeus, has in
vented a device that promises to rev
olutionize the curing and saving of
hay, says the Picken? Sentinel. He
calls it the Dixio Daisy hay-stack
ventilator and has applied for a pat
ent on lt. It ls a tripod and the
means or basis of ventilaci?n is an
open chamber or flue in the center
of the haystack between the legs of
the tripod which becomes larger as
the process of curing progresses and
the hay shrinks. It has a natural
tendency downward from a spike
above, down to and against a spike
below, thereby producing an air pas
sage below each spike, connecting
the open air on the outside with the
air chamber In the center of the hay
stack, permitting the gases to pass
out from the center, or the air to
pass into lt at thirty-two points of
ventilation, which renders the pro
cess of heating and combustion im
possible. No matter how wet when
stacked lt never moulds and never
This is the first device over In
