It may be of interest to the read ers of the Gateway to learn that fifty head of Galloway cattle from the Ko diak experimental station, now at t’he halis, Washington, are for sale. Those ottered for sale are of the beef type, ranging from calves to cows ten years old. The better milkers will be re turned to the Kodiak station in tne spring and the diary work resumed. Experimental crop work ctrried on this season at the station demonstrates that sulticietit feed can he grown in the volcanic ash to maintain the herd again. In fact, it is necessary to have manure m order to bring the new soil into a productive state quickly. Gommercial fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphoric acid were used this season with fair success. St able manure gave excellent results with oats grown for silage anu hay. Oats sown in the ash without the manure or fertilizer grew to maturity, hut stood only six to ten inches high with three to nine kernels in the head. With fertilizer and man ure the yield was from one to eight tons of silage per acre. Native grasses made excellent growth this year on the hillsides and furnished suiBcient hay for the few cattle now on the Islands. Garden stutt made wonderful growth this season and potatoes are better than ever grown in the past. The mixture of the ash and the soil makes an ideal truck garden soil.
