NEWSPAPER SUCCESS. To BELIEVE something and SAT what you believe ,to see things clearly and describe them simply, to know what the people think and write about their thinking, to remember that your constant loyalty belongs to the poorest man that reads your newspaper—that is all there Is to newspaper success.—Arthur Brisbane. GET THE MONEY We sincerely hope that the people of Bear Lake county, will figure out some means by which this county may get the benefit of upwards of $100,000 of state and'federal aid for road building. We are all big enough to come to agreeable terms in the matter of expending this money, the main thing is to get it and not allow this large sum to revert to some other portion of the state when it can be had by simply raising $66, 000 . If we do not avail ourselves of the opportunity ojt securing the $27, 600 from the state, this amount will have to be paid by this county any way, being allotment of the $2,000, 000 bond issue, and this county must pay this amount back whether we get it here or not. The allottment of the $2,000,000 is made by state law and cannot be changed. CountleB receiving their portion must match the amount allotted to them two to one, and we should get this by all means. Besides there is available right now, if we match the state fund more than $50,000 federal money for ? Heilt ^7 * ■ ■ im-ss, m ' \\ I 4 H ", wM if ■ 11- c* ^>if ( $ 'Ll ÏÏiriî; iiiniii!

This amount will also be lost unless we get busy and raise $55,000. Let's get the money for Bear Lake county and let us all stand united on the road program, whatever it will be. We want good roads all over the county, and especially the main arteries. If it reqqires gravel to make the roads, let's gravel, and do it now.

' \; : V ; s 8 f Feeding Value of Sunflower Silage By Edgar W. Cooley Agricultural Extension Department International Harvester Company. Experiments conducted during the past three years by the Montana Ag ricultural College have apparently proven sunflower silage to be of high feeding value for cattle. Individual farmers in Montana, Idaho, Colorado, California, Ohio, Michigan and Canada, also report great success with sunflower silage, so that its value is not confined to localities where conditions make the growing of corn difficult. In Montana the yield for green for age averaged about 30 tons to the acre under irrigation and from 15 to 20 tons on dry land. This was from two to three times the yield of corn. The Montana Experiment Station estimates that 2.83 pounds of sun flower silage is equal in feeding val ue to one pound of alfalfa hay. The report of the station says: "When alfalfa hay is worth $12 a ton, sunfower silage is worth $4.24. At three and one-half tons of alfalfa to the acre an acre of alfalfa at $12 a ton would be worth $42. At 20 tons to the acre, an acre of sunflower silage, at $4.24 a ton, would be worth $84.80. Most of the experiments to estab lish the feeding value of sunflower silage have been conducted In con nection with dairy cattle. Farmers report that the results in milk pro duction from sunflower silage is as great as that from corn silage. The Montana Station fed two lots of dairy cows of 16 head each. The animals in lot No. 1, were fed con Nine-Cent Knife Brings Five Dollars in Chicago Both knives were made In Germany. Both are the game else and equal in value.

The average daily production of milk per cow in lot No. 1, was 29.01 pounds; in lot No. 2 it was 28.17 pounds. The average daily produc tion of butter per cow in lot No. 1 was 1.13 pounds; in lot No. 2, it was 1.12 pounds. One dairyman at the experiment Btation, however reports that none of his cattle relished sunflower; that some refused to eat it; that those that did eat it fell off both in milk flow and weight. The college herd of beef cattle and calves has been fed largely upon sun flower silage. The results have been very satisfactorily. For growing sunflowers the soil should be well prepared and the seed planted late in April or early May. A corn planter set to drill the seed is the most popular method but a grain drill may be used by stopping up Borne of the cups. The seed must not be planted too thick in the row; the rows should be from 24 to 30 inches apart on Irrigated land and from 36 to 42 Inches on dry land. Half a bushel of seed to the acre is enough for irrigated land and half that amount for dry land. Sunflowers make the best silage when three-fourths of the seed are in the late milk or early dough state. Sunflowers are harvested the same as corn—preferably with a binder— The entire plant—stalk, leaves and seeds—is made into Bllage. b, REAL BARGAINS ON RECORDS •* COLUMBIA 85 cent RECORDS Records 75c 2 for ALL OTHER RECORDS—2 FOR THE PRICE OF 1 Now is the time to stock up as we will sell cords at these prices for a limited time only.
