The Cimarron Sentinel is now a 7-col. quarto, the largest paper published in this partof thestate. It is estimated that President McKinley's trip to the coast will cost between forty and fifty thous and dollars almost one year's salary. We are pleased to see that the Kingman Journal has eliminated all its patent medicine locals. This iswhat every well-regulated newspaper should do. The Jour nal is one of the neatest papers which comes to our office. The new ballot law is more stringent than ever. If you mark, the ballot so that it is defective in the least it will be thrown out. If you mark X in the circleat the top you can't vote a mixed ticket. A circle of one ticket and in one or more of the squares of anoth er invalidates the whole ballot. Medicine Lodge Index. A. H. "Wilson, the fusion nomi nee for judge of the thirty-third judicial district, on May 20, com menced a suit in the supreme court of Kansas to test the con stitutionality ot the biennial elec tion law. A hearing was set for June 8. Very little contention is being made against the biennial election feature, but prominent lawyers say the rider tacked on at the instigation of Stanley pro viding for the appointment by the governor of 21 district judges whose offices become vacant be fore their successors can be elect ed and qualified by the provisions of the law, will be declared un constitutional. Kingman Jour nal. Morton Albaugh who has the the Kansas gubernatorial bee in his bonnet, is reported to have consulted a palmist recently, and the following is the delineation: "Two forces dominate this hand love and ambition. But it is a cool and masterful, is this man's. Love may clamor for recognition but the line of the head is strong ly marked and the sober second thought always comes to his res cue. There are troubles ahead for this man His ambition leads him too far. Just now he is at the zenith of his power and to hold that power he should apply the brakes lest he become auto cratic and thereby fall. Let him make governors and senators, let him pull the string, for the prize is not for him. He is a Warwick, not a king." When to Cut Alfalfa. Alfalfa should be cut when not more than one-tenth of the plants have come in bloom. Cut at this early stage, the yield of hay for the season will be much greater than if the alfalfa is cut near ma turity, and every pound of hay secured will be worth more for feed. At the Kansas Experiment Station, a strip through a field of alfalfa was cut when one-tenth was in bloom, another strip was cut after full bloom had past. The strip cut early was nearly ready to cut the second time when that cut after full bloom was being harvested the first time. The strip cut early grevv vigorously through the season and made three cuttings and a good aftermath. The strip cut after full bloom gave a low yield the first cutting and did not grow sufficiently to yieid a good second cutting. Early cuttings seem to invigorate the plant. The late cutting of the first crop seems to injure the plant more than at any other time, and we have found it profitable to cut alfalfa the first time as soon as one-tenth was in bloom, even though the weather was bad and we knew that the crop would spoil in curing. The increased yield from succeeding cuttings over that cut late much more than makes up for the loss of the first crop. Successful clover growers, the first time they try alfalfa, often ruin the stand, so that it has to be plowed up, by waiting to cut until it reaches thestageat which clover is usually cut. The great value of alfalfa is the large amount of protein it con tains, that material in feed that is absolutely necessary for the formation of blood, lean meatand milk. The higher the protein in alfalfa, the more valuable the crop. The Chemical Department of this Station found the effect of cutting alfalfa at different stages as follows: One-tenth in bloom 18.5 per cent One-half in bloom 17.2 per cent In full bloom 14.4 per cent The Colorado Experiment Sta tion fonnd the effect of cutting allalfa as follows: Coming in bloom 18.5 per cent Half in bloom 14.6 per cent In full bloom 12.9 per cent The Utah Experiment Station for five years cut alfalfa at differ ent stages of maturity and fed the crop in producing beef. The average production per year per acre was as follows: Hay Beef Tons Pounds In first bloom 5.35 706 In full bloom 4.90 562 Half blooms fallen 4.55 490 These experiments made in three states Kansas, Colorado, and Utah prove that alfalfa cut in the first bloom will give the greatest yield and feeding value The leaves of alfalfa contain more than three times as much protein as the stems, a ton of alfalfa leaves containing as much pro tein as 2800 pounds of bran, Ev ery care should be takon in cur ing alfalfa to save the leaves. Bulletin No. 87. Kansas Agricul ture College. Game Law. The following is the present game law on the statute books of the State of Kansas: It shall be unlawful forany per son or persons, at any time, ex cept as herein provided, to hunt, catch, kill, shoot, pursue, entrap, or ensnare, any partridges, pin nated grouse or prairie chicken, grouse, quail, pheasant, plover, oriole, meadow lark, robin, thrush red bird, blue jay, turtle dove, or blue bird: Provided, it shall not be unlawful to shoot grouse and prairie chicken from August 15th to October 1st, and doves and ployer from July 15th to Septem ber 15th of each year: Provided, furthermore, that this act shall not prevent the owner of an orch ard from shooting blue jays or orioles at any time for the pro tection of such orchard: Provid ed, it shall not be unlawful to shoot quail during the month of December. The having in possession any bird named above, at any time when the bird so possessed is not permitted to be shot, shall be prima facie evidence of a violation of law. The penalty is a fine of not less than $5 nor more than $100, and costs and $10 attorneys fees. All constables and marshals and police officers in Kansas are made game wardens whose duty it is to enquire into and prosecute all violators of this law. A war den who fails to do his duty is guilty of a misdemeanor and sub ject to same penalty as the man who kills the birds. Fishing in any manner except by rods, lines and fish hooks, subjects one to a fine of not less than $25 nor more than $100, and a jail sentence of not more than six months. Each fish caught constitutes a separate offense. FOWLER NEWS. The time has again rolled arond for us to scratch a few items.
