SAN DIEGO AND YUMA RAILROAD Notwithstanding the hot sum mer season, it appears that work is progressing continuously in the construction of the SanDiego and Yuma railroad. While con struction is supposed to be under way at the west end, it appears from the following clipping from the Los Angeles Times ihat another force is working westwardly from El Centre The Tiroes says: "A mile and a half of the San Diego & Arizona railroad has been laid west from El Centro, and while the creffs are awaiting needed nutlocfcs, the crew are "half-tying the trackage laid. The itirst of next week ihtely more men are to be placed onSl7)al piles or cocks to dry out the work, and the prospect rs that the trackage to New river will be completed and in readi ness for operation by the Holton Interim-baa jailroad by the first of July. Cribbing has- been placed ats the various canal crossings and piles- have been drivea" Sor 1he first permanent canal crossing." Milo Good for Dairy Milo can take the place of corn . in feeding dairy cowsr and will 'yield anjaverage of twice as much grain an-acre as co-rn in dry re gions. In seasons so dry that corn will' be a total failure eHo will usually yield u5 teen bushels of grain or more per acre. The beads' of milo may be snapped from, the stalks and fed to cows giving milk. This rs an economical way to feed this grain, as a cow has- ts chew a head a coneiderabie tpme before she is satisfied to swallow it, and tke more she chews it the better it will digest. The whole heads may be ground without threshing, and the small stems that boM1 the seeds-formr when ground, a good material for diluting the meal and making it more easily di gested. The -threshed grarn may be ground before feeding. It does not pay to feed unground thresh ed grain,, as the cotf chews the whole grain but little before swallowing it, and a large pro portion passes into the manure andigested. Cow Peas a Great Crop Some varieties of cow peas Siave upright, bushy forms of growth; some trail along on the ground like vines The pods -yary in ieragth from 4 to 12. inch es. The colors are as various as those of the rainbow white, xed, greeen, brown, pink, purple, "5lackT mottled. In shape they also differ; some are round, others fiat or kidney shaped. The time for maturing ranges irom sixty days to three or fosr months. Time for sowing any time after the ground becomes warm will do. For early, about May 20, and for the late fall uses, about the middle of July, in lati tude 41 degrees. This latter WML,,!! JMJilUg 'witK strengtH and ease tKey always please" TWO HORSE OVERALLS LEVI STRAUSS nnnnni should be of the later sowing sort. Drilling the seed is preferable After corn is laid by cow peas arc drilled in between rows and they will yield a tine pasture for stock after the corn is gathered. When drilling for this purpose the later kind are best. Three pecks to the acre for this work. Peas should be sown 'not over 3 inches deep and the soil must be dry and warm. When drilled for hay any after culture aids very much in the yield. When the peas begin to show signs of ripening, by the pods and foliage beginning to turn yellow, we mow for hay. Let the vines remain as cut for at least twenty-four hours to cause wilting and throw into thoroughly. They should not be drawn in for several days if weather will allow. After hay is well cured it may be drawo to the baru or shed. If the trailing sort is planted care must be taken in stacking, that good ventilation is given to prevent mold. A good stand will yield from one and one-half to two tons per acre. In the north it is a valuable drought resisting plant and will grow where almost any other plant would perish. Many farmers save only seed sufficient for their own use, as the labor is tedious. The pods are picked by hand, or vnhea- the bush sort is grown the olant is Dulled and sorted away until some convenient-time when, they are threshed out with a flail or by machine. If the trailing sort is wanted the vines are mowed and treated as above. Some wastage occurs !jin this method, but this can be utilized in pasturing afterward. Green cow pea hay is far more nutritious than red clover and contains less dry matter .for total weight than any of the grasses or clover. When pf anted tor green ma nuring it is advisable to turn hogs or any stock into the fields about the time "the pods are ri pening. Hogs, especially young pigs, thrive on the succalent growth and the Quality of the meat is very superior. An acre of cow peas will pas ture eigteen or twenty hogs sev eral weeks. The worst draw back is the first cost of the seed,. but when once you have started their growing you can save your own seed at half of hrst cost. Globe Democrat.

This figure shows an increase of nearly GO per cent over the previoua month's receipts, which was one of the banner months. The receipts for the present fis cal year, which will end June 30, have already exceeded the previ ous year's business by nearly 30 per cent and the receipts for May are still to be added. The heavy cattle shipments from Mexico to the United States are chiefly' responsible for the excellent showing made this last year, although exports of all kinds from our neighboring-republic have been on the increase. The Mexican importation of American goods has been very heavy also during this period, and our manufacturers are stead ily increasing their trade with onr neighbor' on the south. Prospector.

In size, as well as in the intensive character of the work planned, this farm" is the op posite of the average holdings or tins locality. The nrevalllmr crops of the region are alfalfa corn, bailey, and forages in general, compara tively little attention being given to vege tables and frails. Withal, the cost of levelling land in this region is high, rarely falling be low twenty dollars an acre at current prices for labor and teams. Moreover, the cost,, ex clusive of maintenance, of the Governniont irrigating system now under construction will be about S3.50 an acre annually for ten Jears. To meet tlie.se and other heavy Hems ofoxnenseln connection Willi the establish mcntof a farm in this region, intensive crops ofu more remunerative character than those now in vogue, are essential, it was partly therefore, as an object lesson bearing upon these linancial aspects of the general sitr.a tin?, that this cultural work was planned It ECI.
