BEN DUFFY In Orchard and Field Q Happenings of Moment to the Man Behind the Plow SEEDIN6 ALFALFA By Lee M. Lampson, County Agricul turist In Heeding alfalfa there are a few points which are of primary impor tance in getting a good stand with out wasting seed. In deciding upon a place for alfalfa this point should be considered first: Alfalfa must have a soil that is well drained. Its roots require a good circulation of air. When the soil is saturated with water there is no chance for the air to circulate around the roots and the plant soon dies. Look over your own or your neighbor's alfalfa field and notice the patches of ground that have been very wet most of the time even though they may not have-been flooded over the surface, and you will see that in those patches the plants are very scattering or are all gone. No further illustration is necessary to show that it is useless to geed alfalfa on ground that is not well drained. After picking out a well-drained piece of land the next question is the preparation of the soil. No special preparation of the soil is necessary, at least in this country. On the soil we have here thorough and careful preparation of the ground for alfalfa is not essential, as is the case for corn and some other crops. This does not mean, however, that the ground only needs to be rooted up here and there as it is when ihe plow is in the ground part of the time and sliding over the surface part of the time or run ning into the land so far that it does not turn the soil in many places. A reasonable preparation of the soil will make a good seed bed for alfalfa. Thus far we have found only one plaCe in Benton County where it was evident that the soil needed to be inoculated. However, if there is any fear in the grower's mind that he will not get a good stand on account of his soil not being inocu lated, he can very easily do this by securing some surface soil from an old alfalfa field and scattering a bushel or more to the acre over the field which is to be seeded. If this soil is to "be scattered for inoculation, a good plan is to scatter it just be fore the drill or harrow goes over the ground-Bo that it will be worked in right away. Otherwise a hard wind coming up may blow most of the inoculated soil away. The seeding can be done with a hand seeder of some kind, followed by a harrow. But unless this is done very carefully, better results will usually follow seeding with a drill. Now we have come to the point to which ninety per cent of the failures in seeding are directly trace able. This is the manner of proper irrigation between the time the seed starts to germinate and the time the plant is well rooted in the ground. The writer is asked every few days, in going from farm to farm, how much alfalfa seed should be sown to the acre. Here are the facts of the case. The grass will not grow to a reasonable heighth and mature well if the crowns of the plants are crowded together. About twelve pounds to the acre will give you a thick enough stand if it is properly irrigated when the seedlings are little. Twenty-five pounds will not give you a thick enough stand if it is not properly irrigated when the seedlings are starting their growth. Allowing the moisture to drop below the seedlings, even for a few hours, will kill them. The mois ture must be kept right up to the surface of the ground until the seed lings.have gotten well rooted. The safest way to do this in light soil is to dig the ditches eighteen or twenty inches apart and then drop out every other ditch after the crop has become established. In reasonably heavy soil the moisture can be kept up to the surface by using only the permanent ditches, which are three feet to three and a haif feet apart. This will nece.-sitate watchii g tin ground very closely, however, and giving it frequent applications of THE KENNEWICK COURIER, KENNEWICK. WASHINGTON water until the plants are well rooted. Seed only a part of your field at a time unless you are absolutely sure you can get the work done and get enough water to keep the mois ture right up to the surface until the crop is established. PORTIAND STOCK MARKETS Receipts for the week have been cattle 1497; calves 118, hogs 2115, sheep 3727, and horses 1. Killers are sufeited on half fat cattle and are shading their bids on such stuff and only good steers are in demand. Most of the receipts for the week have been of the ordi nary variety, so sales have ranged in price from $6.75 to $7.75 with 8 cents as extreme top for very best grade. Feeders are in demand and bad good sale. A limited supply of cows and heifers has been received with good demand and prices in line with about a week ago, top grades going at $6.35 to $6.65 and an occasional bunch at $6.75. A better outlet for bulls. Steady prices on prime light veal. Receipts of hogs continue to come in bunches. A good sized run Mon day with $9.50 top for best light stuff. The pi ice sagged to $9.35 by Tuesday and Wednesday, the same holding for Friday and the hog market can be quoted anywhere be tween $9.00 and $9.50 with ten dency downward. The week started off with a brisk business in the sheep house with a supply of both choice lambs and sheep. The strength had declined before midweek and buyers were hard to find for the few arrivals pn the later stock trains. Sheep and lamb prices quoted steady with last week. FRONTIER DAYS IN PASCO The people of Pasco will not have to journey to Walla Walla, Pendle ton or elsewhere to see a very real istic imitation of "Frontier days," says the Pasco Progress. The two principal peace officers of this city have given exhibitions within the past weeek which tend to the con viction that law and order in Pasco have suffered a relapse and that this city is undergoing a revival of those occurences that sometimes marked its early history. We refer to the sensational and disgraceful episodes in which Mayor Sylvester and Chief of Police Caudle were the chief actors. These things would be bad enough if performed by private citizens in a frontier mining camp. But when the actors are the mayor and chief of police of a supposedly civilized community they pass all endurance. The peo ple of Pasco are more patient than we suppose if they longer tolerate these exhibitions of lawlessness and rowdyism on the part of the very men who are sworn to preserve the peace. < Happily the terms of both of these men will soon expire. If they have not the good grace to resign, the voters of Pasco should see to it that neither again ever holds an elective or appointive office in this city. DONT3. Don't try to raise poultry In town without a fence or your neighbors will quickly take offense. Don't work with one eye on the clock and the other on the boss. You'll get caught in the cogs and go to-the dogs. Don't bite off more chicklets than you can chew. Better hatch a reason able number and raise them than to hatch a lot and raise them not. Don't forget that every egg that doesn't hatch and every chick that dies is so much off the profit The finan cial finale depends on the detail. Don't over the first hatches go crazy and over the others get lazy. Be en thusiastic. optimistic and Industrious all the way through in what you ao and providence will favor you. Don't waste time arguing about breeds and methods. If you're sure you're right then go ahead, but don't be a bullhead uon t sen preserved eggs for fresh Some customer slick will see through your trick you'll be jerked up quick ind then what a shame for a few pen riles gain you've lost yo»r good name.
