Many farmers in our elate have In recent yearn practically doubled the Income of the fann by milking a doz en or more cowg and marketing the cream. The. w.parator la part of the efinlprnent of every up-to-date farmer. Bince the Introduction of alfalfa it has been found that cowg ted on alfalfa hay will give aa much milk in the win ter if ninths aa when running on the pant urea rn the summer. It ia com mon to find farmer throughout the eastern half of our state whotte month ly incomes from cream run from $10 to I5(J. liy (he uae of the separator the fresh, skimmed milk la available for the pigs both young and old, which Increases the thrift of these animal wonderfully. Again, where cowg are fed on alfalfa and milked in the win ter, fresh, warm milk given to the chickens has been productive of re markable results. The farmers of eastern Nebraska In many localities market eggs throughout the winter months at high prices and at great profit, whereas before the introduc tion of alfalfa and the separator such a thing as the marketing of eggs from the farms In January and February was scarcely known. The calves can bo raised cm skimmed milk, warm and fresh from the separator, and when a Hide oil cake Is mixed with It the calves thrive practically as well as when fed 0n the new milk fresh from the cow. Care must be taken, however, not to put too mnch oil cake Into the skimmed milk, mere- Trees a Plants HardUit Sort for tha Wait. ..rtruonl nf rrnit an1 nrnami-nial rrrw., ohnit., tr.

Write in NORTH NO HUMERUS, North Bnd, liod.a Co., Nebr. Are you going to sow a few urrcn of alfalfa this spring? If not, why noir it is the most profitable use to which the land can be put. Every farni'-r should have at leaat 1 1T arras of alfalfa, and If fanning on a large scaie, miriy or forty acres would be the proper amount. Alfalfa vlM from four to six tons of the most nu- trl'iou hay that can be raised. It win yiclfl HOUM- the amount that wrt clover will, and its feeding qualities exe-d that of red clover at least thir ty per cent. Alfalfa la more tniW cured than red cjover and does not neat ani Slacken in the slack. Even though the seed be hitrh farms rs ran not afford to delay seeding down a few acres to this valuable grass on mat account. To do without thi premier forage crop is far more ex pensive than nay nt the nrice askl for the tfA. Those contemplating sowing alfalfa mis spring snouid plow the ground intended for this purpose as soon &g the frost is out, and plow It as deeply as possible. Next the ground should be harrowed three or four times In order to pack tne soil as cioaly as possible and free t he surface from lumps. The plot should now be let stand until about Mav 10. whn all danger of freezing will have passed. The plot should then tie disked thor oughly to destroy all WMflfl thaf vnao have sprouted and then harrowed sev eral times to make a seed bed that will be firm and mellow. Is then ready for the seed. it will be found economical in the end to sow not less than twenty pounds of soed to the acre aa tl.ls amount, if the sel be ally insures a rood stand Tho akn of alfalfa Is Important. -Wa It Is thick the ste: s grow finer and mase neuer nay. The yield per acre la always greater when ih uiann i thick rather than when the stand Is mm. u py any mishap a good stand is not secured at the miisot it la uwiicuu, practically Impossible, to inicsen it afterwards, as the older plants Will smother out iu ,fiaui wnere Beea is sown lor the pur injBt- oj improving a poor stand. Young alfalfa muxi hnvo ih . shine or It will not thrive. Therefore It Is not advisable to sow it with any uuibb crop no matter now thinly the nurse crop may be sown. It wll be found necessary to mow the weeds unu grassea that wiU grow up with your young alfalfa at iour ti, . " imi 1 1 iln-B during the first season, otherwise the weeds and grasses will smother the yng airaira plant. The young alfalfa plant will not fight Its way the first year against weeds and grasses, and If care he not taken to keep the weeds and grasses cut down during the first season a good stand of alfalfa cannot be expected. After the first year no !C0,,,,1,. wiU be ePerienced because the alfalfa will start earlier in the piuiK man me other weeds and grass es, and being a rapid grower, will com pletely shade the ground so that the others will not cause any further trouble. Alfalfa should never be sown on ground where the water will stand niuM- i.euvy rains, rolling ground, or at least ground sloping Biifflelently to shed water Is only fit for alfalfa. rh s plant can be ralse.i ,,, the hills and roimh lands that are too rough for profitable cultivation, and will do well.
