authorative source that the Santa

off will run in. almost an air line
from Dodge City, Kansas, to Col

distance now traversed by the

This cutoff likely will be the" first
section of the Santa Fe's new

a connecting link in the Santa Fe's
Gal yeston-to-Denver line. Surveys
for both cutoffs were completed

The Surest Dry Land Grain.
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.
