Oat smut is caused by a very mi nute plant which lives parasiticaily within the tissues of the oat plant. It gains entrance In the seedling stage, about the time the plant emerging from the soli. When once inside it grows upward through the tissues of the stem, giving little or no external evidence of its presence until the heads are produced. At this time it enters the developing kernels and destroys them by forming black powdery musses in their places. Important Parasit«. The black powdery substance la found to be made of millions of small, spherical, dark bodies called •'spore*.** Spores represent the reproductive phase of tiie parasite and are im portant in that they are the means by which the smut 1» spread. They are of very light weight and easily carried by air currents for long distances. They find lodgment upon, or under neath, the chuff of healthy grains and remain there nntll the grain is sown. Under favorable conditions the spores germinate soon after germination of the grain itself. They produce^ a tiny transparent infection thread which soon penetrates the young tis sues of the growing seedling and thereafter keeps pace with the upward growth Of the stalk. Produc« Dark Spores. By the time the plants arrive at ma turity the original infection threads hava grown so extensively that they eptfr the devel oping kernel sand pro duce the characteristic large masses of dark spores. This simple life cycle of the smut fungus is completed but ouce during the growing season, and, unless it Is checked by means of effec tive seed treatment, may continue in definitely In succeeding crops.—Exten definitely succeeding sion Service, Colorado Agricultural College. Top-Dressing Alfalfa Is Proper Thing for Spring The practice of top-dressing alfalfa with manure during the winter is not recommended by the Ohio experiment station. It frequently result * In In Jury to the stand and la not a sure preventive of winterkilling Top dress ing In the spring with a moderate application of acid phosphate is to be preferred. If from very late catting in the fall or other cause the stand is too thin In the spring for s good crop, a full har vest of hay may be secured by drilling in oats In March or early April with a disc drill, at the rate of three or four pecks per acre. The mixture of oats and alfalfa wli) make a bay of good quality. Mf an early Variety of oats, euch as Fulghum, Sixty Day, Kherson, or Burt is sown, the mixture mav be cut when the alfalfa is coming Into bloom and will make a hay of good quality. The second cutting will be almost puye alfalfa. A mixture of three pounds of timothy seed and two of alsike per acre may be seeded with the oats. This will gradually till the spaces between the scattered alfalfa pi««** / - Breeding Cows and Sows Like Sweet Alfalfa Hay The man who has some nice, sweet alfalfa hay stored away need not have much trouble with his breeding stock.

W Diversified Fanning • Is Winning Friends Find Stock Profitable Side Line in the West (Prepared by the United Htntei Department of Acrlcultnrn. ) The effective farm trio—the cow, the hog, and the hen—have recently won many friends in a wheat-growing coun ty of the West, iHiuglas county, Wash. This dry land section had been plant ing wheat and buying most of Its but ter and eggs and using much canned milk and cream. For the lust three or four years the county agricultural ex tension agent, leading fanners, and business men of the county have been endeavoring to bring about the gradual addition of enough live »lock on the wheat farms to help feed the family and nia\> a good contribution toward running expenses. Most of the Dougins county men have made the change in their farming systems by degree's, be ginning with only a few animals, gen erally three or four cows, two brood sows, and about SO chickens. As the growing of feed crops permits and skill in handling live stock develops, the flock and herds usually are built up to the amount of live stock the farm should carry. Mow generally this diversified farm ing plan has been developed in the county is shown by the fact that in stead of Importing butter, eggs, and cream, ns was the Vase three years ago, there was shipped out of the county during the year ending May l, 1923, according to reports to the Unit ed States Department of Ag «.-ulture, a surplus of over 6,000 cases of eggt, 13.000 pounds of butter, and 46,000 gal lons of cream. • In addition. It is esti mated that the amount of poultry and dairy products used in the county ««e the» do ubled in the three years. Plowing Up Barn Lots Is Beneficial to Animals Hog raisers may accomplish two de sirable results by plowing up the burn lots at least once a year. In the first place, hogs need good succulent pas ture as much of the time as possible, and In the second place, they need pro tection hgainat internal parasites, such as round worms, the eggs of which re main In the soil. Turning the soil in the lots helps to get rid of the pests and the crop of forage makes it a profitable operation, write» Jack L. Baker in the Indiana Farmer's Guide. In addition to providing cheap *-oteln feed, pasture crops sld as a laxative and require the hogs to take a certain amount of exercise which is necessary to breeding animals and growing pigs. Is probably the best crop to us* for winter and spring pasture for hogs. By putting in successive plantings from two to four weeks apart it is pos sible to have fresh pasture all the time. SeedIng fo r pas ture should be much heavier than ffor grain crop; from three to four bushels per acre on a good soil Is best. Pasturing can be gin six weeks after seeding, and may be continued if the rye Is not cov ered with snow, until the following April.

Remember that Isolated trees must protect them selves and the branches must shade the trunk. Sun scald Is nearly a I wars followed by an attack of borers and many trees are lost by Improper prun ing. An attempt to grow trees with too small tranks is likely t<^ be fatal to many of them.
