JAPAN CLOVER AS FORAGE.
Something Comparatively New in Ag
ricultural Line Hails from Far
Wc herewith Illustrate, fays Farmers'
Review, a clover that has been much
tallied about during tlio last low years.
It was Imported some years ago, an int.
tlal consignment coming from Japan to
Charleston, S. C. The scientist calls It
Lcspeilcza striata. It IstiHummer grow
ing plant that thrives on light soils.
After Its Introduction Jnto tho Carolina
it spread with great rapidity, the r.ccd
being carried by the birds. It Is notice-

left to Itself. If it is grown at all fur
ther north, it will have to bo sown in
the spring, with the certainty that it will
1:111 out In tho winter. Kvon then itmay
prove useful In some locations, Just aa 13
tho case with crimson clover.
It Is now widely distributed through
out the south, being reported as far
west as Texas. When It first appears In
a community It has a salient effect on
horses, but later that effect disappears,
either because the animals get used to
It or because It exhausts something In
tho soli that causes salivation. Tho
stockmen ot the south have come to rec
ognize this as a valuable forage plant
even though it Is a small grower.
Seed should be sown late In tho spring
after the ground has becomo warm.
The land should bo well prepared, as it
must bo for all small seeds. If the soil
has been covered with timber In the past
the chances of tho lespedeza are Im
proved. The seed obtainable at tho pres
ent tlmo is unhulled and therefore from
ono to two pecks per acre must bo used.
Tho plant seeds the ground abundantly
nnd where the climate Is not too cold tho
needing will be continued from year to
HOW TO KEEPjCOMB HONEY
Granulating of Toothsome Morsel
Makes It Undesirable and
Tho granulating of honoy in the comb
makes it more unsalable than almost
anything else that can happen to It which
does not destroy tho comb, says the ICj.il
tonilst. Owing to this, comb honey
should always bo kept In a warm, dry
place during at least the fall nnd winter
months, or whenever great changes of
temperature are likely to occur. It may
bo stored through tho winter in a dry
basement room or cellar, provided no
frost reaches those apartments; but if
Ihcro Is a Hidden rlo of tempcraturo
outside much above that Inside, mols
turo Is liable to gather and stand in
drops on the combs, In which case the
fconey will rapidly deteriorate. The
only sure way of preserving comb honey
o that It will present a salable form, Is
to storo It In rooms so constructed that
tho temperature there will remain be
tween 70 and 30 degrees, und never go be
low (JO degrees.
ABOUT POULTRY AND BEES.

this fact is being taken advantago of to
Improve our Hocks.
Every bee-keeper ought to have a liee
tlght and mouse-proof room to protect
the Innumerable things of an apiary
from their depredations.
If an abundance of good sharp grit la
kept constantly within range of the
fowls many ailments that spring from
Indigestion may bo avoided.
