For 1 or 2 years the had been Irregular and came aboute every 2 weeks, and I suffered great pain. Would cramp so I couldn't get e up and do my work. Sometimes theb would last 4 or 5 days and cc come too much, which seemed to cause pa me to suffer very much. I would be t at up and down in the bed for 4 or 5 bs days. When I'd take the Cardui ° through the period, the . . . would ca R1 be less and not last so long-only ti something like 3 days, and the suffer' Li Ing would be entirely relieved. My health had got rundown and the es Cardul would build up my health and strength and keep me going and out of bed, so I could do my work. It hurt A me to even sweep my floor when I began it, but got so I could do the most of my work, and I didn't suffer any more, had no more cramps."

P1 SARDINIA'S SAINTS' DAYS Each Village Has its Annual Festival, be When it Celebrates the Birthday of Its Patron. 1i al Each "pense" or village of Sardinia T has its annual festival to celebrate n the birthday of its own particular saint or some other church feast. The a, most renowned of these is the "festa" t( of "Saint Etisid," the national feast of , the island. The ceremony is in the ar form of a procession from Cagliari, the ,t chief city of Pula, a village nine miles away, with the return to Cagliari. The a saint was an official in the army of t Dialetlan, and for his conversion to v Christianity was beheaded at Pula. At midday on May 1 the procession , leaves and returns on the evening of a May 4. It is composed of a cavalcade C of horsemen, all in the costume of the d ancient Sardinian militia, escorting the 1 image of the saint, which is preceded by musicians playing the launeddas, an a instrument made of three or four reeds * of different lengths and resembling the pipe of ancient times, t In Norway there is being built a I plant that will produce 4,000 tons of aluminum annually.

(Prepared by the t'nited(l Stats Depart- r ment of Agricultuire. ) It is be&comiinig generally understood that live stock i ndustries must hIe es t:ai hs on n rthernl reclatmation projiects if the best agriculturaln devel- s opmeint on these areas is to be brought g :bout. In sutli developimiient, it is it reci gnized. irrigated pa11stures must r pilay an impollirtant part. One of the y clief tadvantages of the Sulnner pus- ,a turing of live stock on irrigation pro- I jects is lthat during that periodi labor c is esimecially scarce tanl costly on the , remlaiuedt areas. The pri per manage- (f ment of irrigated pastures is outlined n in a circula:r recently issued by the bu reau of plaint industry of the United f States deparitmenr t of agriculture. TI'he information in the ciurcular is t based on experiments conducted dur- f Ing several years by federal and state I agenciets at the HIuntley (Mont.). t Scottsiluff (Neb.), and BIelle Fourche t (S. I).) field stations, and at the Good ing (Idahlo) experiment station, b.V the University of Idaho; and on ob servations made during tIhe past four t years on 11 northern reclarluation pro- t, jects. There is reason to believe that, while the carrying capalncity and meth ads followed vary on different farms a under ohservation, with good manage nent ni acre of pasture will support Itwo cows or their equivalent In other give stock from four to six months -ach year, depending on the location )f the project. It also appears that inind r favorable local conditions and a )roper care, the stock-carrying ca ºacity of these pastures could be in -reased somewhat from year to year. a Profitable Pastures, a Farmers in the Salt Lake valley of t Jtah have found that irrigated pas- p ures are profitable on land which is ii alued at $200 an acre. A dairy farm :r in the Snake River valley of Idaho t; eports that his irrigated pasture car- g les three cows per acre. o The value of such pasturage cad be stated in terms of hay replacement. 'wo cows will consume approximately s t ton of alfalfa hay each month. If b his hay is valued at $5 a ton, th y , eplacement value of an ae.*a rl t rated pasture will be $5 a mont The ength of the pasture season varles f 'rota four to six months, depending on the climatic conditions on the differ- t ?nt projects. Hence the hay-replace- v ament value of an acre of good pasture can be estimated at from $20 to $30 t ,I year. These hay-replacement values r would, of course, be greater wheu the i price of hay exceeded $5 a ton. In c connection with this, it is important to consider the fact that the use of t pastures requires much less labor than the feeding of hay, and that good pas ture is at least equal to, if not bet ter than, hay as feed for cows. Such returns as these fully justify the use of some of the best land on the farm for irrigated pasture. Not all farmers who have tried irri gated pastures have obtained satisfac tory results, but in most cases the failures have been due to causes which might have been prevented. One com mon error is the belief that the pas ture should occupy that part of the farm which does not produce satisfac tory yields of farm crops. Many have attempted to produce pasture on shal low soil or land that is rocky and un suited for pasturage. Careless prepa ration of soil and poor seed are also I common causes of failure. Low carry- I ing capacity frequently is due to the It fact that only grasses are used, where- I as it is desirable to include one or two i clovers. Overstocking, particularly ] during the first year, grazing when the I soil is too wet, and inadequate or im- : * proper irrigation are other explana- ' tions of lack of success. Preparing Seedbed. The circular devotes considerable at tention to selection of locations for pastures, preparation of the land, the imulportance of using fertile and pro ductive soil, making provision for prop er irrigation and proper preparation of seedbed. Under the subject of the seedbed, the author writes: "The seedbed should be carefully prepared and made firm and smooth, so that a satisfactory stand can be secured. It is ordinarily better to pro vide plenty of moisture in the soil be fore seeding time than to seed in a dry soil and irrigate immediately *afterwards. This is true particularly of heavy soil, on which a tough crust is likely to form after irrigation and interfere with the emergence of the young plants. On light soils, how ever, where the upper three or four inches dries out very rapidly, it fre quently is necessary to seed in dry soil and to irrigate immediataly after seed ing. In such instances the use of the. corrugation method of irigation dur ing the first year Is particularly de sirable, and the land should be pre pared accordingly." Pasture Crop Varieties. Regarding pasture trops the pub lication says: "There are in use iR irrigated pas tures a variety of croii in almost in numerable combinatio, In the great majority of cases, htever, the best results are secured with a mixture of wb one or more grasses and at least one Ca variety of clover. Sweet clover alone dyi Is used to some extent on a tnumber of wh projects, but no information has been ern secured which appears to warrant any 1 general recornlmendlation of this crop the in preference to mixed grasses for ir- cle rigated pastures. Some ca1ses of tal sweet-clover bloat have been reported, Lt and it has not been possible to secure el any reliable data showing that sweet Li clover has a high carrying capacity. The use of alfalfa as a pasture crop for cattle or sheep cannot be rtecoin mendedl for the northern projects, be cause alfalfa so frequently causes loss from bloat. O)n one of the projects. 35 per cent of the cattle lost during the year 1915 are known to have died from alfalfa bloat. Losses sustained by farmers and in the experiiments of the office of western irrigation agricul ture of the bureau of plant industry indicate that it is noc safe to use even t a small quantity of alfalfa seed in F pasture mixture. Promii the lnforrma- p tion at present available there see15msto to he no doubt that it is advisable to confine the selection of pasture crops I to the grasses and clovers. "There is little uniformity at present s, as to the kinds of grasses and clovers d used. Some pastures contain only a a single grass and no clover, while oth- A ors have as many as seven or eight ° grasses and two or three clovers. The use of a single grass or several grasses without clover is considered inadvis able, largely because of low carrying capacity. The use of several grasses which have different habits of growth and different temperature requirements assures more nearly continuous growth throughout the season. For exam ple, some grasses will grow better dur ing cool weather or in times of water shortage than other grasses which, on the other hand, may make rapid growth when the temperature Is high or when water is abundant. "The two clovers most commonly used with the grasses are white and al sike, sometimes one and sometimes r both being used. Difficulty occasion ally results from clover bloat where the clover has been seeded too heavily or where the conditions are especially M. favorable to its growth, as they are onte some of the projects. Where the pas- P yot ture crops include several grasses and rf where not to exceed two pounds per itcl acre of either clover seed is used, the b, danger of bloat is not likely to be se- To rious. In the selection of corps for or irrigated pastures, provision should al- A. ways be made for variety and high carrying capacity and this necessi tates the use of at least one clover and preferably more than one grass." The bulletin then devotes several pages to pasture mixtures for various soils, method of seeding, irrigation, Cc and management. Iai tic in: DAIRY BULL'S VALUE bi SHOWN BY OFFSPRING a2 Farmers Are Advised Not to Sell ib~ Sire Until His Daughters Have Been Tested. C. C. Hayden of the Ohio experiment station is authority for a statement that the dairy bull may be worth more than $3,000 In one year to a dairy herd. He shows that in the station herd one bull produced daughters averaging 153 pounds more butterfat than their dams. If ten daughters produced milk for six years, the total production of this sire would be worth $2,750 more than that of a bull that produced no increase, if butterfat is worth 30 cents a pound. Since the value of the bull can be determined only by the milk and but ter yields of his daughters, farmers' are advised not to sell the dairy sire until his daughtbrs have been tested. Buyers should not discriminate against an old bull if he has some high pro ducing daughters, for his value cannot be determined until he is at least four years old.
