The Better Farming Clubs of North
Dakota have become a big factor in
promoting better farming, better
homes, and a better social condition.
These clubs have been organized by

North Dakota Experiment Station.
The clubs are assisted in the work by
the county agents and by a list of top
ics sent to them monthly by the Ex-(
periment Station. This list carefully
outlines a number of topics that are
seasonable. The list for March, for
instance, outlines the following sub
jects: Farm Poultry Seed Testing
arrangement of Kitchen Equipment
The Farm Garden Alfalfa.
The following is the outline and ref
erences given for Alfalfa:
Alfalfa Outline: Description.—

POINTS OF GUERNSEY BREED
Cattle Are Becoming More Generally
Olatributed a« Merita Are Becom
ing Better Known.
(By W. RICHARDS. North ralot»
The Guernsey breed has for its
home the Island of Guernsey, where
thejr have been bred by the people of
that island in a very painstaking man
ner for a long period of years. The
breed was not imported into this
country except to a limited extent un
til S70. They gained little public
recognition until 1893, when they made
the creditable record In the dairy test
at the World's fair at Chicago.
The prevailing color of the breed
is yellowish or reddish fawn, mixed
with white. The muzzle is buff or flesh
colored, surrounded by a whitish or
yellowish circle of hair. The eyes are
also encircled by a similar marking.
in form this breed is pronounced
ly angular and often shows Indications
of coarseness. As a whole they con
form quite closely to the standard
dairy type. The head is lean, but it
lacks the refinement of the Jersey
head. The horns,of the cows should
be white or amber colored, and are
often tinted a deep yellow, curving
gracefully forward, inward and slight
ly upward. The bull's horns are short
er, straighter and stronger. Repre
sentatives of the breed have a very
large amount of yellow secretion, and
It can be seen readily from the yellow
color which it gives the skin. It ia
seen most abundant in the eafs and
about the udder and scrotum.
The Guernsey cattle are somewhat
larger than the Jerseys. The differ
ence, however, is not marked- On the
average the Guernseys will weigh
about 100 pounds more. They are
considered to be about medium in size
in comparison with the other dairy
Guernseys give an average quan
tity of milk, and milk persistently.
There are many cows in the breed
which have produced over 10,000
pounds of milk in a year. The milk
of this breed has a high natural yel
low color which gives it a very rich
appearance, making it unnecessary to
color the butter at any time during
Guernsey milk tests quite high in
butter fat, ranging from 4 to 4.5 per
cent on the average. The breed ranks
high as a producer of butter fat. They
have demonstrated that they rank
high in thiB respect in public tests iii
comparison with other breeds and by
the official records made for admis
sion into the Advanced Registry of
the breed. There are many cows of
the breed which have official records
of more than 500 pounds of butter fat
for a year.
This breed has been confined to the
Eastern and Central states largely up
to date. The states of New York,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Wis
consin are the chief centers for the
production of the breed. The breed ia
becoming more generally distributed
as its merits are becoming better
known. The people of this country
were slow in recognizing the merits
of the breed. The breed should stand
Northwestern conditions as well and
possibly better than the Jersey with
equal care, because they are thrifty
and more vigorous.
Keeping Horses at Work.
As many horses die from lack of
work as from overwork. A horse
standing idle on a full ration finds his
digestive and excretory organs over
taxed, with the result that poisonous
slements form in the alimentary tract.
These may be stored up in the
blood and become active only when
the horse is again put to work, or
may become immediately effective.
The horse that is not doing his usual
amount of work should be put on a
very much lighter ration than ordi
Silage From an Acre.
An acre of corn will produce from
alght to twelve tons of silage.
SCHEME TO SUMMER FALLOW
After Plowing Land Should Be Worked
to Conserve Moisture—Mulch
Land to be summer fallowed should
be disked at the time of harvest. The
land may be fall plowed or, if pre
ferred, it may be plowed the follow
ing June, during the Arst half of the
month. If plowing is deferred until
June the stubble should be disked
again early in the spring, preceding
the plowing. After plowing, the land
should be worked to conserve the
moisture. A soil mulch should be
maintained to prevent evaporation.
The following spring grain is to be
sown the summer fallow. Thus the
crop will ihave the benefit of the mois
ture that has been saved the previous
season. Many of those that practise
summer fallowing do not seem to
have mototure conservation in mind,
and consequently its main value for
this state Is lost.—North Dakota Ex

Doan's Kidney Pills have brought
lasting results to thousands. Here is
Minot evidence of their merit.
Mrs. Ii. I), llorst, Washington St.,'
Minot, N. 1)., says: "Several members
of our family have used Doan's Kidney
Pills and have been cured of backache,
headaches and dizzy spells. One of!
the family had a lot of trouble with
the kidney secretions. A couple of
boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills quickly
removed it. We think Doan's Kid
ney Pills are the best remedy to be
had for kidney complaint."
Mrs. llorst is only one of many
Minot people who have gratefully en
dorsed Doan's Kidney Pills. If your
