Las Vegas, N. M. Feb. 20. It was learned here today from an authorative source that the Santa Ferhas begun the purchase of a right-of-way for fts Dodge Uity Colmor cutoff. The proposed cut off will run in. almost an air line from Dodge City, Kansas, to Col mor, N. M., and will reduce the distance now traversed by the road's main , line between the two poines seventy-one miles, besides avoiding the steep' Katon moun tain grade and tunnel. It will open up a new territory for the output of coal mines along the Santa Fe. This cutoff likely will be the" first section of the Santa Fe's new road shortening improvements to be built. The second will be the Sulzbacher-Vaughn cutoff, a dis tance of 100 miles, which will form a connecting link in the Santa Fe's Gal yeston-to-Denver line. Surveys for both cutoffs were completed late last fall. . A man in Missouri by the name of Moon got married and that was a change of the moon.

Milo is the surest yielding grain crop that is grown in Eastern Col orado, Western Kansas and Okla homa, the Panhandle of Texas and Eastern New Mexico. The U, S. Department of Agri culture reports the average yield for five years at Amarillo, Texas, and other dry land experiment stations at 40 bushels of grain per acre a year. Farmers in the same section report yields of from thir ty to eighty bushels per acre. A bushel of milo will produce from ten to. eleven - pounds of pork. This makes the average an nual pork production from the dry lands of the southwest equal to 400 and upwards pounds of pork per acre where milo is grown and fed. Ten pounds of milo have the same feeding value for horses, beef and dairy cattle, hogs and sheep as nine pounds of corn. - Milo is the corn tor the plains of the Southwest and should be grown instead of corn where the annual rainfall drops below twenty-five inches. Farmers in the Panhandle of Texas say that it never fails to yield a crop of grain, and that it will yield twenty bush els an acre in years so dry that wheat is an absolute failure. Milo should have the same place in dry land farming that corn has in Iowa and Illinois. It has nearly the same composition as corn, like feeding qualities, and can be used with protiit for the feeding of ev ery class of farm animals to which com is fed. : Every farmer in this section this year should plant and thor oughly cultivate at least 40 acres of milo. It will insure his pros perity and the prosperity of the entire community. Milo, well cul tivated, is a sure crop and a large acreage means well fed teams, and plenty of grain to fatten steers and hogs and to feed dairy cows. M. H.
