ment, and a heavy grower. He has proved
iat it will grow in a cold climate. He says:
Lucerne or alfalfa, (medicago sativa) is a
ery well-known forage crop in the far west
snd southwest in certain dry, arid regions.
fhe plants belong to the leguminosoe or pea
family, in which are included the clovers,

IAs a result of several season's trials I have
found alfalfa to make an abundant, vigor

where the soil la cold and the thermometer
I will drop to fifteen or more degrees below
zero in winter. On April 20 our alfalfa

on O'-lotar - one plot wa cut, which yioldad
tut tho rale of ovnr throe tons per acre. Tlwse
plot have nmde good growth for thren suo
rlv yonrs. The foliaje Is very succulent,
and the stock of the farm relish It very
much. The average height of the plant
Just before making the first cutting was
two feet four Inches, a near as could be
ascertained, though some pluntf attained
height of two feat nine inches. The plot
were not manured.
On July ID I made a root washing bed
from bed of alfalfa. The roots descended
quite vertically into the soil, and many of
them were large and stocky. A foot below
the surface one root measured three-eighth
of an inch In diameter, and at two feet depth
nearly one-fourth of an inch. Fibrous root
were not at all abundant, though pene
trating to a depth of four feet below the
crown, where a bed of hard, tenacious clay
war encountered. One large tap root wa
traced three feet ten and one-bait inches
below the surface. Yet In sandy soil or
sandy loam the roots of alfalfa penetrate to
a greater depth than almost any other
forage plant, and Mr. Qould mentions an
instance in which the roots were traced to a
depth of thirteen feet It is this ability to
penetrate to a great depth in search for
food and moisture which makes this plant
of so much value in those regions where
shallow rooted plants can not be grown ex
cept by irrigation.
In conversing with farmers who have en
deavored to grow alfalfa in northern New
York I have been told that they find it diffi
cult to make a "catch." I have bad no diffi
culty in this respect ' Sowing about twenty
pounds per acre in May, the seeds germinate
and produce plants that do not attain a cut
ting size the first year, but after the first
year the crop is a generous one, as four har
vests the past season testify. I believe it
will pay northern farmers to give this plant
a trial, for I think it will succeed in many
places. Simply prepare the ground as for
clover. In curing for hay it will be well not
to allow the plants to dry too much, else the
leaves will rattle oft. The crop should be
cut before the plant is at all advanced in
blooming, else the status will become woody.
If cut as soon as a good succulent growth is
made a new crop wil) soon be under way.
For soiling or for ensiage I consider lucerne
an admirable plant It does not spread at
all, and if desired can be easily eradicated
by cutting below the crown of the plant In
trying it the farmer need not fear that it
will remain on' his land as a troublesome
Hay Barracks.
Timothy meadow will produce more tim
othy hay to have one-third of the crop
clover. The latter keeps the soil loose, mel
low and damp, and the timothy makes
heavier crop. Sheds or barracks can be
made cheaply to store such hay. One twenty
feet square and twenty feet high, with a
movable roof, will do very well witheut
boarded sides. Buch a barrack will hold
twenty tons of hay, and' with a horse fork
can be easily filled t wenty feet high.
The cost of a hay barrack of this kind will
te paid for the first year in the better keep
ing of twenty tons of hay. The roof should
be made as light as possible, so that it can be
raised and lowered, as it U filled or emptied.
It should be light enough so that one man
can raise or lower a corner at a time, at his
convenience. Without this it will have to
be boarded up, as the rain and tnsr would
blow under the roof. But if tho roof is
raided as it is filled, in haying a load can be
put in at any time, as it is in a barn, and
then it is safe.
Great care and good judgment have to be
exercised to have the hay cured just right
and when it is right it should go immediately
to tbe barn or shed, as mixed hay cannot be
saved successfully in cock in a rain. So it Is
all important to have a place where hay
can be stored just as soon as it is ready.
Nearly half of all hay cut when it is stacked
is spoiled. Where clover is, the water will
run in it will spoil in for some inches all
over the stack, and a considerable of a layer
at the bottom is worthless. And when a
stack is opened in winter or summer to feed
it is at the mercy of the weather, which is
always of the worst character at the wrong

The cabbage worm can be driven off by a

All farmers know the fatal effects of

in the animal's mouth a smooth rouud stick

along with them.

The Country People Throng to Wit
ness the Funeral of the Dead
Munich, Jute 19. The excitement
among the Bavarian people over the
death of King Ludwig remains un
abated. The lower classes, up to the
hour of the funeral today, thronged
the gates of the royal palace, awaiting
admission to the chapel, and exhibit
ing alt the signs of sincere grief and
sympathy. People from the country
and the mountains flocked into the city
all daylong. Among the mountaineers
was a Tyrolese woodman, to whom
Ludwig once gave a diamond ring for
some service. When he reached
the coffin in tbe palace chapel
he fell on his knees beside
it and subbed and walled. The
crowd in and about the palace was so
great thht when dinner was being laid
for the German Crown Prince Freder
ick William, tbe servants engaged in
conveying tbe gold plates from tbe
treasury to the palace dining hall
found themselves unable to obtiin ac
cess to the building by the regular
doorway, and were compelled to reach
the first floor by means of a ladder.
Men and boys passed all of last night
on the steps of the Loggie in Ludwig
palace, in order to secure places
to witness the funeral The hotels
of the city are crammed, and lodgings
have been at a premium for several
days. It is not possible to doubt that
both chambers of the Bavarian parlia
ment wi l recognize Prince Liutpold's
regency. Tbe committee having the
matter in charge will, on Monday next,
report upon the question, and will set
tle Prince Luitpold apanage. Lud
wig's insane brother, and successor to
the throne, King Oito, when informed
of his accession, received tbe news
apathetically, and replied, "So,
So. Tho soldiers must march out
then." He is mentally incurable, but
his bodily htulth is robust. Prince
L titpo d'a- sister and the lbdies in
waiting were present when Ludwlg's
mother was informed of her son's
suicide. The announcement was very
formal. Tbe court chaplain began by
reading from the Bible a text suitable
to the occasion. This he repeated
three times. It alarmed tbe king's
mother, and in a startled way she
asked "if anything was amiss with the
king." When she was told that
Ludwig was dead she fell back to tbe
floor unonscious. She was ex
tremely prostrated and was placed
in bed, where she remained many
hours, ceaselessly sobbing. Its now
stated that when King Ludwig was re
moved from IIohenschaDgwianto Berg
castle he was quite touched at the sight
of his valet weeping over the king s
misfortune. "Never mind, old fellow,"
said the king, "I shall soon gft better
of that eld fool," pointing to Dr. Van
Godden. The bells throughout Bava

newspaper correspondents were exam
ined under oath this morning by the

respect to their interviews with B. S.
Dement, surveyor general of Utah,
whose nomination is pending before
the committee. The interviews con
tained, with other things, charges that
toe Mormons had a lobby in Washing
ton, spending money to iotluence legis
lation by congress, and that a certain
senator had been influenced in bis ac
tion upon public measures by payments
of large sums of money. The mate
rial and sensational feature of the in

too long neglected, Is to restore order
The News (Ministerial) says Mr
Gladstone struck the keynote when
he said this election is the people's
election. The question resolves Itself
into home rule versus repression. The
people will not be easily frightened by
tbe big bears that Lord Salisbury and
bis allies are conjuring.
The standard blames Mr. Gladstone
for dishonesty in declaring that the
home bill is dead when a few weeks
ago he declared he would never recon
struct it. The so-called principle, con
tinues the Standard, might mean any
thing. Mr. Gladstone does not give
any details of his contemplated scheme,
because he is unable to defend them.
He gives instead empty platitudes.
Lord Salisbury, on the other hand.
offers a well defined extension of local
self-government coupled with the con
tinued supremacy of the imperial par
lUmenf. The Times says: "If we had to de
scribe Mr. Gladstone's remarkable
spetch in a single phrase we would say
it is too clever by half. He has sur
passed himself in audacious quibbliog
with plain issues in juggling with
empty phrases, in ignoring and per
verting notorious facts, and setting at
detiaDca the logic of common sense.
After begging in the last election for
a majority with which to resist Parnell,
he is now asking for a majority with
which to effect tbe surrender that Mr.
Parnell dictates, He poses a model of
constancy and thanks God he is not as
that publican and sinner, Hartington.
Tnere is nothing finer in the long an
nals of phariseism. Against Mr. Glad
stone's insinuations respecting the in
terview between Mr. Parnell and the
earl of Carnovan, we have the ex
"licit denial of Lord Salisbury, The
tatter's advice to the Conservatives to
support Unionist candidates in dis
tricts where the Conservative party is
not numerically strong enough to elect
candidates of its own, is sound and
much needed.

Mr. Warner, of Ohio, said that it
was bis understanding that it was the
intention to construct villas for offi
cers in charge of tbe observatory. The
clause as framed, 83 be thought,
was no expenditure to the construe
tioo of the observatory buildings, but
so as to admit of the building of fine
country houses to be occupied by the
officers. He offered an amendment
limiting tbe cost to f 100,000 and pro
viding that no money should be ex
pended except on the observatory
building proper.
Mr. Adams, of Illinois, tried to make
a point of order, but it was too late.
Mr. Buck asked Mr. Warner about
the villas. He replied that there had
been considerable talk about the mat
ter in newspapers, and he had himself
seen the plans,.
Mr. Breckenridge said he thought
the clause should be striken out, and
the matter not acted upon until plans
were adopted.
Mr. Warner withdrew his amend
ment and submitted another, which
made no limit as to the cost of the
buildiDgs.nor described their character.
Mr. Bhnchard then showed that the
plans had already been adopted.
This amendment was agreed to by a
vote of 34 to 6.
Mr. Breckenridge moved to strike
out the chuse as amended. This mo
tion was lost by a vote of 51 to 14, and
the clause was allowed to stand.
The clause appropriates $50,000 to

A Decision Against Free Sugar from
San Domingo.
New Yoke, June 19. Judge Cox,
of the United States circuit court, in
deciding to-day against the plaintiff In
the case ot Joseph Netbercbift, vs.
Collector Eobertson, of the port of
New York, said that the supreme
court will probably be called upon to
settle the question at issue. The
judge said he could not believe that
congress ever intended to encourage
fraud by making San Domingo a
dumping ground for sugar from all
parts of the world. In October, 1884,
tbe plaintiff imported from Puert Plata
two cargoes of sugar, on which Col
lector Eobertson assessed the duties
under schedule E. of the tariff of 1883.
The plaintiff protested, insisting that
importations of sugar from San Do
mingo should be admitted free under
stipulations of the treaty with that
country of February 8th, 1867. Con
gress subsequently imposed new duties
on sugar, but In 1875 made a treaty
with the Hawaian Islands by which
certain articles, including sugars, were
admitted free. In 1883 congress pass
ed a new tariff act, but it-does not
effect treaties in force between this
and other governments.
