Cut Alfalfa When New Shoots
Start From Crown.
Just when to .cut alfalfa and
bow many times to harvest a
crop in one season are questions
which have received studied at
tention from experts in the U
nited States Department of Ag
riculture and the various expe
riment stations in alfalfa-producing
states. Ordinarily it i3 a
good time to cut alfalfa for hay
when the new - shoots have
started from the crown, and
from one-tenth to one-fifth of
the plant are in flower. But
these two conditions do not al
ways occur at the same time,
However, the farmer with a lit
tle experience, and keeping in
mind the flower and new shoots,
soon is able to tell when alfal
fa crop should be tut. The far-
mer's best judgment will be call
ed into play, with preference
given to the welfare of the
plant rather than Ihe size of
the crop.
Experiments on Government
plants seem to prove that cut
ting is not essential to the wel
fare of the plant, but is only a
means of getting hay. Plants
of alfalfa that have not been
cut in six years are in better
physical condition today than
those that have been cut regu
larly. Government agricultural
experts lean strongly toward
fewer crops of alfalfa a year,
holding that as large tonnage
can be secured, for example,
with three as with four cut
tings, and with les3 labor. Em
phasis is laid on the necessity
of leaving time enough after the
last harvest to permit the
plants to get a healthy growth,
approximately 4 inches, before
at the State Fair and the ques
tion of building a show and
sales pavillion.
"Go to Grass" is the terse an
swer that W. A. Hock, the new
county agent in Phelps county
is making to farmers who be
long to the County . Farm Bu

his statement up with a series
of excellent arguments proving
that the one great need of
Phelps county farm lands is
more grass and more lime.
Meetings between grain grow

prices agreed on in most places

. The commercial fertilizer a-
gencies have started a well-di
rected campaign to discredit the
report of the American Farm
Bureau Federation committee
which made an investigation of
the Muscle Shoals nitrate, plant
project. The A. F. B. F. Com
mittee has recommended to con
gress that the Wilson dam be
completed and the plant be put
in operation by the government
so that fertilizer can be supplied
to farmers at cost. It was to
be exepcted that the commerci
al fertilizer companies would
raise a howl and make every ef
fort to prevent this competi
tion. The American Cyanamid
Company and the Press Service
Co., both of New York, already
have sent a number of reports
into Missouri in an effort to
create sentiment against the

the qualify cigarette
T5ECAUSE we put the utmost quality into this
U one brand. Camels are as good as it's pos
sible for skill, money and lifelong knowledge of
fine tobaccos to make a cigarette.
Nothing is too good for Camels. And bear this
in mind! Everything is done to make Camels the
best cigarette it's possible to buy. Nothing is done
simply for show.
Take the Camel package for instance. It's the
most perfect packing science can devise to pro
tect cigarettes and keep them fresh. Heavy paper
secure foil wrapping revenue stamp to seal
the fold and make the package air-tight. But
there's nothing flashy about it You'll find no
extra wrappers. No frills or furbelows.
Such things do not improve the smoke any more
than premiums or coupons. And rememberyou
must pay their extra cost or get lowered quality.
If you want the smoothest, mellowest, mildest
cigarette you can imagine and one entirely free
from cigaretty aftertaste,
It's Camels for you.
