LUCERN THE BEST FORAGE
, . CROP.
N &w?arc inVcociptof an inquiry from
Subscriber ajf'SiinnysidciUtah, vh5
ask'sif thene is a more profitable forV
. age crop than alfalfa He also desires
to know how it compares as a forage
crqp with'Bromc grass.
In reply we can say that wc do not
have in this western country a crop
that begins to compare in value with
luccrn as a forage crop. It is rich in
the protein elements which arc con
verted by animals into flesh, muscle,
and bone, and when fed in combina
tion with foods poor in protein' and
containing large proportions of fat
making elements, forms a most de
sirable ration for all farm stock. It
is of course a valivablc crop to grow
upon the land as it is a legume and
lfas the power of gathering nitrogen,
one of the most excellent plant food's,
from the air. Its deep reaching roots
bring up plant foods from the sub
soil, and place them where they can
be utilized by other crops. When
plowed under its leaves, stubble, and
roots add humus and nitrogen to the
soil, and leave it in a most excellent
condition for all other farm crops.
It is superior in every way to Bromc
grass, with the possible exception of
comparison as a posture crop.
Bromc grass can better be com
pared in feeding value with timothy.
Its special value in our section ijs as
a drouth resistant crop. It is dpjng
exceptionally well on our dry lands,
especially the first three or four years
after it is seeded. Wc have noted on
our visit to the" dry farms this season
that it docs not seem to do so well
after four 01 five years, and in fact
L'cgins to deteriorate after that time.

TOURIST CARS TO TOUR AUG
UST TWELFTH.
Pilots Will Lead Way to San Fran
cisco Via Valley Line and '
Back Along Coast.
"Bring your machines, you owners,
just so they are Tourists-, and come U
along," is the slogan of the biggest
automobile tour ever Undertaken by I
private manufacturers in California H
and probably the biggest in the coun- 1
. try, which will be started under the 1
' auspices of the Auto Vehicle Com- ,
pany Wednesday, August 12.
Arrangements for the big run were
completed yesterday in the office of
Maniag'cr Conwcll of the -company af
ter a conference with Pilot C. B. V
Smith, who has just returned from' R
San Francisco after an, inspection of y
road conditions. 1 J
The route will be to San Francisco
via the VnJley line and ba'ck along the
- coast. Any Tourist machine is elig
ible but otlvcr makes arc ibhrrcd. The
average running time of the trip, ac
cording to careful calculations by
Pilot Smith, should be fifteen miles
per hour in order to complete the
tour in four days.
The only requirement for entering
the run free of charge is that the car
driven must be r. Tourist. The run
will in no way be an "experts' " race
and the greenest amateur at the kr
wheel will have an even chance to
connect with some of the prize mon- f
cy, but in order to add interest to the T
event, competitive features- will be in- I
troduccd im the way of establishing I
controls and- limiting running .time.
Awards will be made for general re
liability, perfect scores and so forth.
Cars Five Minutes Apart.
Cars will be started on a fivc-miu-utc
headway end distances between
, machines will be maintained under
penalty, thus assuring each car of a
clear road. C. W. Sahland and C. B.
Smith, who have repeatedly inspected
the road, will pilot the tour and in
addition to marking the route clearly
with confetti and flags will supply
1 Plows, Harrows, Planters, Cultivators, Potato . 1
