As a Mortgage LiY and a Calamity Kiler
Alfalfa Is Just the Thing to
An Interesting Artiole by Alfred Rasloot, of
Stuart Doer Lodge County, In a
Kansas Report.
During the year about closed the far
mers and ranchers of Montana have
riven more attention to alfalfa growing
than ever before. Its Importance and
..tlal. is becoming rec.ogniaed and In
the Yellowstone, Gallatin and littter
.ltot gatll.ya It is now being quite, ex
tenstlvely raised. Alfalfa is a particu
larly v'alaabhle crop to Montana farmers.
,Stotkmen are Ilginning to learn that
they cannlt treat to the ranges for stilli
clent food for their horses amt .; attle
in severe winters. They ha e beeln
looking about for a long time for some
cheap product, easily raised, that can
sustain stiock when grasing is Impos
sible, and In alfalfa they have found
what they need.
1. D. 'Dornnell. a prominent farmer
and st,,ckmnan, of Billings, has be.n
expernlleltllin l with Ilfalfa for some
time. lHe has met with great success
in its productilln. In an a1 .ddress be'fore
the state faIners' conventloll, held at
Blzemnan last spring, he recomnmended
it asn the best hay for horses and cattle.
Nine. that time many tlallatin county
'lalmers* have put In a few acres of al
f'lfaI and the yield in that section has
Ie it tremenldous and of the best qual
Ity. During the present year Director
S. M. Emnery, of the state experiment
station raised several small lots of the
clover with a view of determining un
der what conditions it can be most suc
cessfully grown.
The report of the Kansas state board
of algriculture for the month of Noveim
ber is devoted entirely to the considera
tionl of alfalfa. It is an exhaustive
treatise of 230 pages. In It is an Inter
esting article on alfalfa by Alfred Itast
cot, of Sturat. Deer Lodge county. Mr.
Raslcot says:
"Alfalfa is the most valuable crop
that is raised in Idaho or Utah for hay,
growing on any kind of land but that
which is low and wet, yielding five to
seven tons of hay to the acre, and pro
viding excellent feed for all kinds of
farm animals. For about twenty years
I have grown from twenty to fifty acres
on "second bottom" and upland clay
oill, with gravel below and water at a
depth varying from sixteen to one hun
dred feet on different localities. We ir
rigate from streams, flooding the land
and turning the water off as soon as the
land has been all covered, applying once
for the first cutting and twice for each
succeeding cutting, whenever the
ground Is dry.
"The first year on new land requires
fully one-third more water than is
needed afterward. Before seeding, the
ground should be mellow, then harrow
ed with the back part of the harrow or
brushed, and seeded with fifteen to
twenty pounds to the acre, between the
first and middle of April. The plant
will usually run out the weeds, and on
that account no special treatment is
needed. The first season will produce
a small crop of hay, but no good seed.
Unless water is allowed to freeze on the
land, alfalfa does not winterkill here,
and at two or three years of age it is
at its best. continuing vigorous for ten,
twenty or thirty years without seeding.
The first cutting of the season yields
about two and a half or three tons to
the acre, the second about two to two
and a half., and the third one to one and
a half tons. The hay is cut when the
plant has been in bloom eight or ten
days, allowed to lie for twenty-four to
thirty-six hours, and treated as red
clover is. The second crop is always
the best for seed here. The cost In the
stack, on $25 land, irrigation costing
50 to TI cents an acre, is $2 a ton. To put
this up in 100-pound bales costs $2 (0
a ton. On the ground it sells for $3 to
$5 a ton, while the seed brings $3, $4 and
$5 a bushel. An ordinary yield of seed
is 300 pounds to the acre. and this Is
threshed with the same machine used
for grain, at a cost of about one-fourth
of the seed. The straw is worth about
one-fourth as much as the hay. We
consider alfalfa hay, for cattle, sheep
and hogs. far superior to clover, but for
horses timothy Is best. t will keep fat
steers and sheep all winter, providing
they are under shelter, and is excellent
for milch cowS.
"Alfalfa will fall behnnd red clover for
green manure, as It Is almost Impossible
to plow it under and keep It there. If
the crowns are turned under, whtre
there Is any moisture at all, they will
grow again; and. If turned under deep
It Is almost Impossible to get them killed
out. I plowed a piece of heavy soil for
Ipotatoes. It took two years to get rid
,of the plants, and not a crown ever died
that I did not pull out where the sun
could dry It. I have seen several plecns
started on the high prairies, but never
saw any one make a suc'cess of it yet;
hut. In all that I have had an eppor
tunity to l.trn the partlculars, the man
was mre to Iblamse than the plant or

Four Miles of the Extensionof Hehen Avenue
Has Been Completed.
Work on Lowland's drive, the new
county boulevard extending from the
city out Into the valley, will end for the
season in a few days. Four miles of
the new road have been completed.
It is by far the finest county highway
in the state, and In tact it will compare
favorably with some of the best roads
of older counties of eastern states. It
Li not a mere roadway; it is a boulevard,
broad and smooth.
Donald Bradford was the promoter of
the sohemle. It was his idea, and it
was largely through hil efforts that the
county commlisloners were induced to
contract for It. The new road will be
the most important highway in the
county when completed. It cuts
through section lines tapping a num
ber of county roads In the valley. lBy
it the distance to all points between
Eldorado liar and Helena Is reduced
several miles. The road now extends
to Prickly Pear creek, over which a
temporary bridge has been built. It Is
the intention to extend thq road furth,r
next year, it possible. or'at least Im
prove the old road to the Missouri with
which It connects.
The boulevard has been constructed
under the supervlsion of Paul 8. A.
tllckel. It Ls 100 feet wide, with a road
bed of fifty feet, which is well graded
and rolled hard and smooth. In the
lowlands half a mile of the road has
been underdralned to insure it from mud
and miry holes. Ovir the drain extend
ing the width of the roadbed has been
spread two feet of gpavel. This has
been rolled until it, 4 perfectly hard,
forming a model roa4. The road has
been quite expensive to build, but the
county commissioners believe, as do
others who have given the matter con
sideration, that it pays to expend
county funds in permanent road Im
A Finely Ealanoed Company In a Charming
Opera Monday and Tuesday.
Since flrt presented at the New York
Casino. the comic opera Amorita has
been revised and muchfaImoved. New
situations have been added and the
comedy element considerably strength
ened. The costults and scenery also
have been greatly tettered. Magnifi
cent dresses have beeS procured from
Paris and "up to date" spectacular ef
fects obtained-all of which have so
added to the drawing powers of the
opera that opera house managers all
over the country are writing for time.
which Is impossible to .e qbtained, as
the time for the rest of the season has
already been booked oild by the Cal
houn management. Manatee' Ming
was fortunate in havldg made an early
booking and is so enabled to give to
his patrons an operatic treat which will
be greatly appreciated.
In regard to the present company,
which Is even better than that of last
season, It is said that he engagement

rington and Miss Gertis Lodge; Messrs.
George Lyding. Dug Flint and Geo.

the management and one whieb adds

and St. Paul. No waltipg by this line at
junction points for connecting trains,
which are subject to material delays.
Having the short line, and sigshtly slower
