thoughtfully. Indeed, he looked so

"There is a scheme that might j

rather doubtful as to whether ycu

The Grand Opening of
places whore you can conveniently and
profitably begin your alfalfa growing.
"In Illinois alfalfa is bet seeded in
July or Au.ctiat. but before seeding, the
seed bed should be persistently work
ed, and thoroughly prepared. If the
soil is acid or sour it should be sweet
::ed through the application of air
slacked lime or finely ground lime
6?oue. If the fie-ld is well worn a lib
eral dressing of manure will act a3 an
irsurance against possible failure. Disk
the surface of the unplowed land, aft
er dressing with manure, until a mulch
of loose soil is on the surface. Plow
now. to a depth of six inches or deeper,
and immediately disk aud harrow, roll
and drag until you have a seed lwd fit
to sow onion seed In. Now apply your
lime or limestone and again harrow.
This should provide an environment
for a'falfa seed which, with one addi
tion, will not or.ly supply the factors
necessary for germination but for rapid
growth and development as well.
The remaining reqnisi'e. at least
most soils of the state, is inoculat-
with the nitrogen gathering bac-
that use the alfalfa as a moist
plant. This may be applied when the
