(.)no of the most. gratifyingdovel

Congressional officers and for the

to their platforms an argument in
favor of better roads. It is run

Sorghum is preferred for summer
feeding for hogs and dairy cows. Cut

stalks begin to head out.
Hogs like sorghum best when the
stalk is sweet and the grain in the
milk stage. In order to preserve the
sorghum in this state it is recommend
ed to pile the stalks in large piles and
cover with straw. Early Amber Is the
variety usually grown.
The results of seven years' tests at
the station indicate that the grasses
best adapted to the soils and climate
of the state are orchard gvass, I3ermu

Alfalfa is considered a valuable plant
for permanent meadows and pasturer

being once started it Is permanent.
REMARKS ON RYE.
Good ThingN It Does In n. Section
Where Its Frienids Are Many.
The writer considers rye next in im
portanco to the root crop. It is nothing
uncommon for rye here to yield 40
hushels to the acre, and if the ground is
properly prepared an(1 good seed well
put in there Is no failure. Itye will
live through winters that will kill ev
ery wheat and clover plant.
IRye has so many friends in Sheboy
gani county, Wis., that great p)ains have
been taken to get the b)est varieties.
Gr-ains of my rye nre much lar-ger- than
wvheat. A hushel andl a half is none
too much for an acerc, especially if land
is full of weed seeds. TIhis rye was;
grown on reclaimed swamp land and
will yield about 40 bushels to tihe ac-re.
The ground was lightly imanured with
conrse hor-se manure.
Rye can be sown in August or any
time befor-e the ground freezes. I have
seen good crops of r-ye wher-e the gr-an
was sow-n so late that the plants could
har-dly be seen above ground until the
next spr1ing. I sowed grass seedl on ryo
two weeks beforo we could get on the
land with a team. If 1-ye is not sowed
by Sept. 20, walt until the ground is
aibout to freeze upl.
One who has laud infested with Can
ada thistles will find great satisfaction
in sowing rye thick and early. Some
sow rye here In July and pasture it so
it cannot joint, then harvest a crop the
next year. Our millers are making very
flne white flour from our new varieties
Some of the fattest horses in this
country last spring were wintered on
rye straw and water, with a few car
rots. The unthrashed rye was run
through a cutting machine and the car
rots through a slicer and the whole
put together and wet and mixed 12
hours before being fed.
Sow rye once, and you will sow it
again. Many of the smail farmers,
and some large ones, thrash tihe rye
ewith flails, bind the straw into bunl
dies and sell It for moreu money thanl
the grainl will bring. Rtye that has
r been kept dry will gr-ow when two
years old.-Cor. Prmai-ic F'arnmer.
