All the starlings who had been lis

SAYS LE&FEDEZiA IS THE ?EST
Friend of the Southern Farmer- "A
. Dread Assertion, but True.*'
"Lespedeza is the farmer's best
friend," says Dr. A. B. Young, of
Zachary, La., a successful Louisiana
farmer. Dr. Young admits that this
is a pretty broad assertion, but Bays
its truth is easily proved.
"Like other clovers and all leg
umes," continues Dr. Young, "lespe
deza reaches out and takes nitrogen
from the air, stores it up in the nod
ules at the roots, and leaves the soil
much better for its having been
there, lt is more easily and moro
quickly cured than any other hay,
testing out a higher food value ind
giving a better balanced ration than
any, not excepting alfalfa, and "an
be fed indefinitely without irritation
to tho kidneys, as ls the case with
alfalfa. It will not salivate nor bloat
any animal whatever, as do othnr
clovers. Stock prefer it to any other
pasturage, and they wax fat upon ;t."
Dr. Young thinks that no farmer
who pants oats should over fail to
sow lespedeza on his oat land fr.nu
March until June, as this crop will
restore much of the nitrogen taken
up by the growing oats and will af
ford an excellent pasturage after the
oat crop has been taken off, or it will
yield from a half to four tons of hay,
according to tho fertility of tho soil,
without any extra cost except tho top
ping of Hie woods and tho harvesting
of the crop.
Many will say that lespedeza will
yield better on poor land than on
rich, but Dr. Young does not find
this to be the case. lie does find,
however, that poor lands, planted to
this crop, soon become very rich 1?
nitrogen. Rich lands have been
known to yield four tons of choice
hey per acre, while poor lands the
first year may not yield more than a
half a lon.
A good crop of lespe?ez? hay will
permit a farmer to turn much of lils
corn or oats into money, says Dr.
Young, because by selling the oats or
corn he can spend a little of that
money for black-strap molasses to
pour over the hay to supply all the
carbohydrates needed, and a little
more of the money for cotton seed
meal, which will regulate the protein
element. This combination makes
the best balanced ration, as well as
the cheapest, that can be found. The
fine hay produced by the farmer sup
plies all the roughage and a good
; percentage f.f carbohydrates and pro
tein, while the cotton seed nt eal and
molasses ?an reg?late '.ho ian two :
elements at will. Ono pound of outr
i ton seed meal is equivalent to three
I pounds of grain in protein content,
' and molasses is almost wholly carbo
. hydrates. '
! ?Dr. Young says that at least 25
pounds of lespedeza seed should be
? planted on an acre if the 'best results
? aro to be obtained. Any farmer, any
j where, wishing to plant lespedeza
' seed correctly can obtain all neces
sary data, absolutely free, from the
Lespedeza Seed 'Growers' Co-opera
tive Association, Baton Rouge, La.
The foregoing organization 'is com
posed of experts on lespedeza hay
and seed and its proper cultivation.
