K. S. A. C. NOTES Buffalo Wallowa Doomed in Plana for Harreting Ponds, in Pratt county, locally j . known as buffalo wallows, are rapidly ' being drained out before harvest ' time. These ponds have usually filled i with water sometime during the har-' vest seasoncausing great inconven- j ience and los3 of time and grain, j Since Pratt county wheat fields ' are big and the harvesting; machinery, consisting of tractors, '. combine, harvesters and headers, is1 heavy, solid ground is required for, the most efficient operation. - Having no natural outlet, proper ditching is j necessary for drainage. In most! cases the drainage is simple and in-j expensive and can be accomplished by constructing simple open ditches.: The drainage and irrigation de-' partment of the state agricultural! college extension service, has been ! cooperating with' the Pratt county j farm bureau in working out plans! for a number of individual farm) drainage systems. j H. B. Walker in charge of this work, says, "A few hours work at this I season of the year may save many acres of wheat at harvest time, be sides making a saving in time and labor for the entire field, since with drainage, turning in the field to avoid soft spots, is unnecessary." Cow Testing- Associations in Kansas Cow testing associations in Kansas ire becoming more numerous all the time according to C. R. Gearhart, ex tension dairyman, Kansas State Agri cultural College. Counties already having active associations are viz: Bourbon, Clay, Lyon, Dickinson, Cowley, Reno, Labette, Montgomery, Washington, Jackson, and Shawnee. Counties likely to form associations are: Rooks, Doutrlas, Doniphan, Nemaha, Morris, Kingman, and Harper. Mr. Gearhart reports that a large number of other counties are very de sirous of obtaining these associations, as a direct result of the "Pure Ere:l Sire Campaign" and are busy making the required prerequisites. To obtain an association, one must have enough herds to keep a tester busy every day in the month and the herds must bt ciose enough to permit the tester to change each day. An up-to-date test ing outfit must also be owned. Alfalfa Crowing- on an Increase "Farmers in the eastern half of the state are, beginning to realize the need of soil work," says E. B. Wells, extension specialist in soils. Accord ing to his report, much of the soil is too acid to grow leguminous crops. Cooperators in Douglas county are planning to purchase a commercial lime crusher to crush the native stojie found there. Fertilizer demonstra tions on alfalfa'for the eastern-part of the country are proving to be most popular. Mr. Wells' plan of procedure i to demonstrate the value of manure. acid phosphate, and manure and acid phosphate combined on new seedings and established stands of alfalfa. Lime is to be used on the new seed ings when advisable. The agronomy department at the college secures fertilizers and ships them on receipt of application. The county agent locates cooperators and secures data required for the application form. He also makes arrangements for financ ing the demonstration from farm bu reau funds, and lays off plots, apply ing fertilizers according to directions furnished. The cooperator agrees to leave the alfalfa plots for at least four to six years and to notify the county agent in advance at what time the alfalfa is ready to harvest. Mr. Wells is preparing a series of articles, seven or eight in number, in which he discusses seed bed prepara tion of alfalfa, time and rate of seed ing, stage of cutting and proper fer tilizers. A circular on the use of lime is also in the process of writing. Mr. Wells states that this is largely made up of questions which he has been asked concerning alfalfa, while out in the field. ' He answers each question in detail, hoping that this sort of bulletin will prove beneficial to many other growers with whom he has not come in contact. The Railroad Situation The railroad situation is involved in a maze of complications almost as desperate as the state of international ' relations. There are so many powers to be consulted, so. much speech-mak- 0 ing to be done, so much antagonism to be overcome, and such a division ' of authority that the proceedings are interminable. The dead hand of war-time regula tion and control still grips railroad managements. If this is abrogated or wakes re duced in the interest of economy and lower rates, railway Workers are threatening another general railway strike. ' State and national regulation of our transportation system and labor union control is on trial. The public has been long suffering but is slowly comir-s: to the conclusion that the net result of the last ten years of political meddling with the nation's railways is largely to blame for the present plight of our great carriers and many industries. In the theory the roads have been under private manage ment, actually they have been bound hand and foot, with political red tape. Privately managed business of every description in this nation has gone ahead and been able to expand and meet the needs of the country, but it has not been hampered at every turn as have the railroads. Political mismanagement and inter ference for the past ten years has to a. large extent strangled the railroad development of half a century and prevented the normal growth of the cariers to meet the needs of the coun try. Granting that abuse of power by a few railroads brought about their reg ulation has very nearly brought about their destruction. The stage is being set to complete ly wreck our transportation system in order to turn it over to the ad ocates of government ownership and load the billions of indebtedness and growing deficits onto the overburden ed taxpayers. One of the most prominent timber men and heaviest shipper in the northwest goes so far as to say, "I would wipe out the interstate com merce commission and national labor board and turn the railroads back to real private management. I would protect the public with simple laws against rebating and special rates for a privileged few. Then I would tell the road3 to get busy and cooperate with industries, build up business and manage their own affairs subject to the law of the land and decisions of our courts. Competition and the law of supply and demand would regulate lates and wages as in any other busi ness. The net results of our present system of political regulation has been a detriment instead of a benefit to industry and Mt costs a fortune to ;;o to Washington and make a show ing on a rate question before the commission. 'It's politics instead of railroading that is raising hell with us today." Railroad ro;-;u!ation to raise arti ficial wages and then raise rules to :ay the!"., can force the public t pay :f it rider but i can't force the pub lic to ride. This is the real point at issue and unless the railroads are very soon released from their arti ieial burdens and allowed to run their own affairs. .'.i:lr ;aI labor v. ill go down in the Waterloo gf railroad bankruptcy which will entail dis ister for industrial activity. Freight rates of the future, and vage3 of the future, must be bases upon the buying power of the nation to consume the articles made avail able by these joint agencies. Capital may remain out of use but workers must be employed and railroads and industries must be operated else the one starves and the others decay. Ex. WOMEN GIVE OUT Housework is hard enough when healthy. Every Hays woman who is having backache, blue and nervous spells, dizzy headaches and kidney or bladder troubles, should be glad to heed this Hays woman's experience; Mrs. Joe G. Jacobs says: "I can firmly recommend Doan's Kidney Pills, because I have used them off and op at different times with great results. Often I have trouble with my back, which seems to come from a little over-work around the house. There is a dull ache across the loins of my back and my kidneys and I feel tired and drowsy a good bit of the time. Whenever I bend over, twinges of pain shoot up my back and shoul ders and I feel dizzy. My kidneys seem to be weak and irregular in ac tion, too. W hen I feel any of this trouble, I begin to take Doan's Kid ney Pills from the King Bros. Drug Store and a. short use entirely rid. me of the agony."

Mistakes of 'the past can never be corrected. Errors of the future only can be avoided. From the past we should learn how to live so that our lives can be free from needless regrets. HAYS PEOPLE PREVENT APPEN DICITIS Many Hays people are using simple glycerine, buckthorn bark, etc., as mixed in Adler-i-ka. This flushes BOTH upper and lower bowel so com pletely it removes all foul, accum ulated poisons from the alimentary canal and prevents appendicitis. Ad- ler-i-ka relieves ANY CASE gas on stomach or sour stomach. Often CURES constipation. In one case of chronic stomach trouble ONE bottle produced wonderful results. U. A HARKNESS, Druggist. M. I.
