Vetch is a name given rather loose
ly to those leguminous plants which
resemble the commoji garden or Can
-ads field pea. Some kinds grow tall
and rank while mothers are decided
dwarfs. As^'forage plants not all
retches are'iMcce&iful.'f Winter vari
eties in the United States are not
considered successful except in. ..the
Southern and the Pacific Coast states
and even the spring sown vetches
are not considered an unqualified sue
cess in all states.
Mn Minnesota vetches have been
used very little, though they do very
well as hay, green teed, pasture,
green manure, or a seed crop. As a
«over crop also vetch is well adapted
to) .the use of horticulturists. Hairy
vetch is most frequently used as it
'neems to be best adapted to Minne
sota conditions. Its. use is restricted
largely to trowing in small areas for

Winter Method of Keeping fresh Meat
en the Pawn.
Freesing the pieces and packing
them in snow is a better way of keep
ffcrineat'tban freesing the carcass and
Jpfewlnjg to remove a pot'tion aa want
ad. The carcass should be cut Into
Ibako, roasts and boiling meats. AM
trimming-tor stable use should be done
before allowing the meat to freeae.
My.each piece out to freeie separate
ly, where It will not come in contact
with other meat. Secure a box large
enough to hold it all and put a layer
of dry snow at the bottom. When the
meat is frozen put in a layer, packing
It so that no two pieces touch. Cover
this with a layer of snow and lay al
ternate layers of snow and meat un
til the box is filled. Set the box in an
outside shed where.it will not be sub
ject to sudden changes of tempera
ture. For convenience in getting the
meat when wanted it is well to pack
the steaks in one section or end of
*he box and the roasts and stews in
another. It will not then be neces
sary to disturb anything but the piece
desired when a supply is needed. Use
only dry snow in packing, be sure the
meat is frozen solid, and it can then
be kept through the winter unless
there is a very warm spell
