- Magistrate M.T. Hughs, of Wal

as magistrate ot this place, despito
rumors that were current to the ef

the defllnte statement that Walhalla
would go without a magistrate if he
could not find somebody beside Mr.
Hughs to hold the place. Wo thought
this a peculiar stand for our Senator
to take, and we felt that he was be

The re-appointment of Mr. Hughs
proves that Senator Mason ls a larg

being. Others who have received

RED CLOVER CAN
i BE SOWN EARLY
Many Farmers Plant as Early as
February, Even Whib Snow

SEED SELECTION IMPORTANT
Plant ls Hardy ani Not Injured by

Dene While Other Farm Work
ls Comparatively Slack.
(Prepared by tho Patted SUitos Depart
ment ot Agriculture.)
Hod clover hus been styled the cor
ner stone of agriculture In the North
; Central and Eastern states.
' Many fanners will begin laying the
corner stone as early as February,
when lt ls customary In ninny sections
to sow red clover on the surface of tho
snow, so that lt will sink Into the soil
with the first thaw in the spring. Red
clover ls hardy, and ls not injured (?>.
ordinary cold ; and the fact that lt can
be sown at a season when work on the
farm is comparatively light adds to
the economy of Its cultivation.
The first Important point to be* ob
served ls the selection of good seed,
say specialists of the United States
Department of Agriculture. Consider
able care should be used In this re
spect well In advance of the time bf
seeding. This ls particularly true at
present, when a largo proportion of
the red clover seed used In the United
States comes from abroad. If ?poor
seed ls used the expected crop may be
j a partial or total failure.
Good Seed la Plump.
Good red clover seed ls plump or
well filled, bright with a slight luster,
the color of Individual seeds ranging
I from violet to light yellow. The Indi
! vidual seeds should be at least me
dium sized and fairly unlfonn, free of
adulterants of any kind and from
seeds of noxious weeds.
Home-grown seed is desirable, espe
cially in the North, because it ls al
most certain to be adapted to local
conditions. If lt 1B not available, sam

pies should be obtained from reliable
dealers. These should be examined
for adulterants, weed seeds and shriv
eled seeds. They should also be teat
ed for germination before purchasing
In the absence of more accurate
methods an estimate should be made
of the proportion of true red clover
seed and of weed seeds and other im
purities. Prom the red clover seed
separated from all Impurities, a count
ed number, ns 100, should be taken
Just ns they come. These seeds should
be placed between layers of moistened
cloth or paper or merely covered In a
bed of sand or light soil. A dinner
plat' covered with another, is a suit
able germinating receptacle. It can
be kept In the living room, at a tem
perature between 05 and 85 degrees.
Between the third and sixth days the
sprouting ability of the seeds should
It should he borne In mind that the
sowing value of the seed IM represent
ed by the amount of true clover which
will germinate with reasonable
promptness. Thus, If four-fifths of a
sample is pure clover, and only three
fourths will sprout, then only three
fifths, or 00 per cant, of thc original
seed as offered will grow. Thus, thc
germinating test has an Important
bearing on the worth of seed offered
to the fanner.
Protects American Farmers.
A seed-testing service ls maintained
by the United States Department of
Agriculture, where 20,038 samples of
various seeds were examined and
tested In the las! fiscal year-16,442 In
Washington and 13,100 in the five
branch seed-testing stations. Similar
service ls offered by the various state
experiment stations. The department
also exercises a strict Inspection serv
ice over field seeds brought from for
eign countries, and last year 5,000,000
pounds of various seeds were rejected
or held for cleaning before being al
lowed to be offered to American farm
It ls important that the testing of
seed be done early enough that a .suf
ficient supply of pure seed can be pur
chased In time for use; and If seed Is
to bo i?;it to one of the government
or state testing laboratories, at least'
two weeks should be allowed.
