PUN Ex per i mer tal farma along tbe line of the Southern Pacific rail road operated with Southern Pact flc funds under the direction of the University of Nevada farming ex perts, are to he on? of the results of the visit of President Sproule to Nevada says the Reno Gazette. Announcement of tbe plan was mide by Dr H E Reid following the dinner at Hotel Riverside last night which was given in honor of Dr E W Allen, assistant director of the government office of experi ment stations, who has been in specting the Nevada experiment statioa. Dr Reid, presiding at the pro gram cf addresses in the Commer cial Club's rooms said in response to Dr Allen : "It certainly is very regretable that our president is not here to respond to this splendid talk by Dr Allen. It is one that has a great deal of encooragement of the sta tion staff especially. I am glad for what he has said for the en couragement of Nevada. "I will say for the president that today he brought before the board of control of the experiment sta tion, Mr Sproule of tha Southern Pacific whobai indicated a very keen interest in agricultural matters generally and he has promised us some farms to ba selected along the main line of the railroad asd they will furnish the money, we to furnish tha men, to direct the op erations; they to pay tha bills. "We hope that w*ien Dr Allen ccmes to us a year hence we will have an abundance of good things to report to birr. We hate fully decided without any consent from the doctor that he shall come to ua every year hereafter and not send some other fellow." The purpose of the experiment station, its relation fo agriculture and the value of science in agricul ture were Dr Allen's topic. "Agriculture today" he said "has become a great career, and it becomes tha duty of the men of the experiment station to work out problems for the future guidaace of the farmer. Tha problems so worked out must not be superficial ones, but problems permanent and which will abide. Agriculture is much broader than farming. The farmer used to thlrk tha experi ment station ws? his institution and that it should work out his problems but its aim is broader? t should not work out the pro blems tbe farmer should work out for himself, but should keep ahead of hie problems in ord.r to answer future problems. Dr Allen outlined the plans of the new administration at Washing ton for thn agricultural publication naming ?he three general classes first the popular farmera bulletins the semi technical bulletins and the Journal of Agricultural Re search. Me spoke of the fact that the extension work is now being tak en care of, relieving the atation of the necessity of carrying tha re sults of investigations and experi ments to the farmer and relieving the station of the inroads an the finance for that purpose. ?? ? ? ?n ? ? ?

It requires Intelligent management to keep all bunds busy during the hay harvest without allowing them to bo Idle at any time and without sub jecting any of the hay to unnecessary exposure Unlike other (arm operations, hay making cannot be followed along def- ! Initely lald-out plans. Weather Is the great controlling factor In hay-making Hay will not dry In a specified time even without rain. A cool day will not allow hay to dry half as fast as the next day with a warm wind blowing. Dry ground Is a great aid In drying moisture from green hay above It. but if we wait for tlio dry ground we are apt to be caught by th? next storm Ordinarily we must begin cutting aa soon as one storm has cleared up and we see Indications of fair weatb ?r. Every precaution should be used to prevent undue exposure of the hay to dry weather. The hay tedder hastens the drying to a marvelous degroe. especially If the hay has already been caught by the rain In the aw nth and hay that Is heavy and green A hay tedder will soon pay for Itaelf If rightly used The side delivery rake Is another valuable Implement for stirring the hay as well aa gathering It In open windrows In which the drying may go on without causing the leaves to become brittle and fall off Unless allowed to become too dry. they draw large quantities of moUtoro from the atems, beside they are the most val uable part of the hay and must go ? into tho mow In good condition If we are to derive the full feeding valu# from tho hay crop Men who am tho best feeders of farm Mock appreciate this fact and aro willing to undertake tho extra labor of curing their hay In cocks so \ that they may obtain Hs full feeding > value. It seems almoat Impossible to mak* ! good hay from clover and other l? I gumea without curing It In the cock i before hauling It to tho barn All farm work must bo carefully planned during tho hay harveat. Part of our time la needed In tho potato j and corn fields Muring the catchy j weather tho wood* grow fast and we mutt plan to keep ahead of them by J employing our hands at this work i when they are not busy In the hay | field We should keep every man busy 1 without cutting down hay when tho i weather U catchy. In fact one of our i greatest problems Is to find time for ; haying at tbta time of the year With our cultivated crops planted ' late and oth<-r farm work demanding j tho attention we have a full program It It tho time when we must hire extra men or lose a largo part of the feeding value of tho hay crop Wo prefer to hire th? extra men when we can get them. They are hard to And, but we manage to get thorn somehow. It Is much easier to have the help to push the hay harveat and not fall I behind with tho other farm work J than It Is to become all mixed up 1 with our farm work at this time of 1 the year. 1 CltlbtK "BUnka U a mn a of ?mall calibw."
