Midway That Lame Back Mel Kidney Disease rH ii Tt A tai Tfiem And to Relieve the Lame and Aching Back:' You Must First Relieve the Kidneys There Is no question about that at all—for tlie lame and aching back is caused by a diseased con dition of the kidneys and bladder.

There are a multitude of well-known and un mistakable indications of a more or less dangerous condition. Some of these are, for instance: Extreme and unnatural lassitude and weari ness, nervous irritability, heart ir regularity, "nerves on edge," sleep lessness and inability to secure rest, scalding sensation and sedi ment in the urine, inflammation of the bladder and passaiges, etc. DeWitt's Kidney and Bladder Pills are an exceptionally meritori ous remedy for any and all affeo tions or diseased conditions of these organs.

The reasons are that many meadows are cut for years until they become weedy Euid mixed with other grasses and that MELD OF ALFALFA IK OAEXVOBlilA, the hay is often cut too late, so that it loses the bright natural color and pal atatiility.. If the farmer would send to market nothing but what the feeder considers, good he would get a higher price. It might be -necessary in some .cases to educate the country buyer also. Timothy has .the lead, especially among city feeders, because it is not only nutritious, but palatable and non laxative, and the horse is not likely to overfeed. Nevertheless other kinds of hay, would often prove better for the feeder. Alfalfa, for Instance, has high muscle building qualities and is espe cially valuable for draft horses. It is highly relished, however, and' the horse may overfeed. Doubtless the feeder will in time learn that hay from legumes has great value when properly Meantime the farmer is obliged to include clover and other legumes In his rotation in order to maintain the fertility of his land. In any case the,:farmer who sells hay should seek to .produce the high' est grade by keeping his meadows pure and by proper methodB of cut ting, curing and stacking. The hay crop of California la one of our most valuable agricultural prod ucts being slnce'1905 worth over $31. 000,000. Alfalfa is increasing yearly la acreage and value. Prom three to five cuttings may be. made yearly on Irrigated ground. California grain hay (cut in the milk) is highly valued for feed and is sent east by the train load for feeding race horses. It often averages In value per acre more than the grain, as in 1006 the value per acre for grain hay was $10-80as against $8.60 for grain. The Illustration shows a field of al falfa bay in California. Qettlng Rld of Weeds." The problem of Weed eradication is one of the most serious which con front the farmers of Iowa and ad Joining states. During the last few years a method of killing weeds has been discovered which promises to greatly lighten the annual toll which the farmer pays to these pests. This new method consists In spraying the weeds with certain destructive ma terials known as herbicides. Some of these herbicides, of which iron sul phate is the most promising, will kill nearly all kinds of common weeds without Injuring the oats, wheat or other crop in which they happen to b* growing In fact in several casea tbe ^prayed grain was tbrlftier'and yield ed more than that which did not re ceive the treatment This method is especially valuable for destroying mus tard in gr&lnfielda and dandelions and other weeds on lawns. ^'California's Farmer CengrMsmtrt. John Bidweil and Timothy QJ Fhelps were the only two farmers ever: elect ed to coagress since California's admis sion lnto the Union, nearly sixty.years ago. Bidweil resided at Ohlco,'ln Butte County, and was elected in ISM from the Third congress district. At that time there were no railroads to the east and all comnmnicatiMi was by steamer. When Bidweil reacted San Francisco he met John 'Conness. who had already served one session in the •g&te.'

AGRIC GRADED United tamfceve L0W- Success of Alfalfa In the Wart en Ir rigated Land*. The rules of the National Hay asso ciation recognize twenty-three grades of. hay, which seem to fall into jive classes—timothy, clover, mixed timo thy and clover, wild grasses and al falfa. Choice, timothy hay must be sound, properly cured, of bright natu ral color, not mixed with-more than one-twentieth .of other grasses and well baled. Lower grades of timothy are Nos. 1, 2 and 3 and "no grade.": Clover hay has two grades. No. 1 and No. 2. No. 1 clover must be medium clover, sound, properly cured,, not mixed with more' than one-twentieth of other grasses- and well baled. Choice alfalfa hay must be reasonably fine leafy alfalfa of bright green color, properly cured, sound, sweet and well baled. Other grades of alfalfa are Nos. 1. 2 and 3 and "no grade." These rules are used by most cities that have official inspection. ipsips ft $3s1% ^ai^lll PajMdbnifjM area th& ^W *v Alaska is so great that itcs.government rnain tural experiment sta tions In the territory, so ^ituat«d that crops ^nay be tested uudipr a|i the cli matic'rCondltlons. Sitka, on the strip of cowitgjiroj acting. Wmtheast, has a fairly mtljt climaW,"whlle the station at Bampart is close.to the arctic cir cle. C, C. Georg^son, special agent in charge (of all the stations, in his an nual report for 1906, &ctoily Issued by the United States department of agri culture, declares unqualifiedly that •'Alaska is an agricultural country," that good hay can be produced "in any quantity'' for winter feeding, while the native grasses "cau maintain livestock in excellent condition In summer." He says also.that "potatoes, cabbage^ caul iflower, rhubarb, turnips, lettuce and, in short, ail the hardy vegetables can be grown, to perfection up to and even within the antic circle, as has been proved by thousands of settlers," But before Alaska can be largely settled rallroadB qnd wagon'.roads must be built Xihder present conditions, he says, "few farmers can afford to go to Alaska with their families, live stock and equipment." The expense of trans portation "would equal the cost of a farm in the states." Abundant sunshine is essential for good crops in Alaska. In 1908 the rain fall, during the growing season at Sltk& was 1G.22 inches against 24.78 Inches the year before and 18.91 inches in 1000. The smaller .rainfall meant more sunshine, and the result in 1908 was large crops of potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower and varloqs root crops. The quallty also was better. Mr. Qeorgeson believes that Alaska has undeveloped resources sufficlehl for the support of a large population. But there, as he'says, "Nature is stern and uncompromising,,and we must sub mit to the conditions she imposes." Among many Interesting facts given in the report is this: Watermelons wet$ brought to maturity out of doors on lOie Hot Springs farm, which: is in the'tTanana valley, In latitude 64 de grees, north. It seems that on part of this farm the soil is warmed from the same source, whatever it is, that heats the water of the springs. This farm has now 150 acres regularly under crop, the greater portion devoted to po tatoes, '"'-'.u-' is Th« Peat That Kills Plum*.
