BEST MEASURES OF CONTROL When Outbreaks Are Particularly Severe Use of Hopperdozer Is AdvisableCaterpillar Feeds on Different Plants. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Serious damage to alfalfa by the green clover worm has been reported to the United States department of agriculture from several parts of the eastern half of the United States, where this pest is distributed general ly. Although for many years it has been known to occur commonly on clover and fas received its popular name from this fact, its injury to this ^rop has rarely been sufficiently seri ous to Justify control measures. It usually confines Its attacks to legum inous crops, such as alfalfa, clover, soy beans, cowpeas, and vetch, but sometimes feeds on strawberries and blackberry plants and some common weeds. Best Control Measures. The best control measure consists In timely cutting of the alfalfa crop, so as to remove the food supply when the caterpillars of this Insect are most abundant. Clean culture is also rec- Alfalfa la Highly Regarded aa a Forage Crop. ommended, and when outbreaks are particularly bad the use of the hopper dozer is advisable. There are three or four generations of the green clover worm a season, ac cording to the bulletin, which allows ample time for the Insect to increase greatly In a summer. The caterpillars are killed in considerable numbers by natural insect enemies, but tills method of control can not be relied upon for protection of the alfalfa crop. The alfalfa should be mowed when the Insect Is In the caterpillar or worm stagefrom ten days to three weeks after the time of the ap pearance of the moths In great abun dance. To Insure success the field should be left as clean and bare as possible In order to remove the food supply and any shelter protecting them from the direct rays of the sun, which hastens their destruction. Clear Fields of Insects. If these measures can not be carried without Injury to the alfalfa, either from premature cutting or too orolonged delay, wait until the alfalfa ready for another cutting. It ought be possible, however, before the summer is passed, to clear the fields ,f this Insect In this manner. In the eastern states premature cut Ing often results in permanent injury alfalfa, especially while It is young, md for this reason the cutting of this rop much in advance of the normal terlod is not recommended. As the caterpillar feeds on many afferent plants, ditch banks and fence ows should be kept free from- weeds. The caterpillars have been caught endily by dragging a field with a hop perdoaer, such aa Is used for grass hopper outbreaks. It does not hurt the alfalfa when not used to excess, and will catch many Injurious insects. EARLY FRUITS MOST DESIRED Light Sella With Southern Exposure Are Beat Adapted for Purpose Liable to Injury. Early fruits are usually most de sirable, and light soils, with southern exposure, are best adapted for that purpose. Light soils, however, require heavy fertilizing and more mulch In summer. They are also more liable to Injury to drought As a rule, they produce lighter crops. If clay son Is ssed for early berries, It must be well drained, is more difficult to prepare, matures later crops, and Is not so fa* vorable for winter protection. If earli ness Is not a consideration, then on should not hesitate to use any soil, provided it can he made rich, BBBBBBBBS GOVERNMENT SHEEP FARM EXPERIMENTS Several Important Results Ob tained on Idaho Ranch. Flock Handled in Same Manner as Ar* All Similar Bands in Hands of Wyoming StockmenWork to Be Extended. iPrepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Several results of importance to western sheep men have been ascer tained by experiments at the govern ment sheep ranch near Dubois, Idaho, which has been in operation two years. Formerly it was customary for range sheep men to discard ewes which did not bear lamb's when two years old. Extensive investigations by the depart men of agriculture have developed that such ewes are just as valuable for future breeding as those which bear lambs as two-year-olds. Individual records are kept ou the government sheep ranch relative to the weight of fleece, length of fleece, char acter of fleece, fineness of fiber and mutton quality of each animal, while detailed account is maintained of the offspring of each ewe. The particular utility of the results obtained arises from the fact that the flock is handled just as are all similar bands of sheep In the hands of Wyoming stockmen. Experiments are being conducted to develop a type of sheep more suitable to the western range conditions than the types now prevalent. It is hoped to extend this work in both mutton conformation and length and weight of fleece. There are at present about 1,500 head of purebred Rambouillets Lin coln Rambouillets, Cotswold ftam bouillets, Leister Rambouillets and Romney Rambouillets on the govern ment ranch. Crossbreeding experi ments are being conducted With all these breeds and crosses, as well as the use of purebred CorriedaJ es, which have been mated with crossbred ewes. RAISF MORE BREEDING SOWS Remarkable Evidence of Expansive Power of Swine Numbers in Practical Farming. (Prepared by the United Stateu Depart ment of Agriculture.) Even greater than the record num ber of breeding sows on farms in the United States a year ago, the number on April 1 this year reached the un precedented total of 9,970,000, accord ing to the bureau of crop estimates, United States department oi agricul ture. While the average gain for the whole country over Inst year Is only 0.3 per cent there were gains greater than this in most of the states and as high as 8 per cent in California. Di minished numbers in the great swine states of Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Louisiana and Oklahoma are sufficient to leave barely a gain to the United States as a whole.

The advantage of keeping manure under cover, whether piled on the ground or in pit, is that the amount of moisture in the pile can be artificially regulated and with less danger of leaching than if it lies on the ground. In the open pit, surplus ef moisture can not result in loss through leaching, but unless water or liquid manure Is pumped frequently over the pile It will fire fang through heating. With both leaching and heating guarded against, manure can be kept for con siderable periods without serious de terioration in fertility. However, It Is always best to get manure onto the fields and under the surface as soon as practical. The best place for manure to rot Is In the soil. RYE IS READILY PRESERVED ResuKIn*.

Aunt Grace came into the room where her three-year-old niece was cutting up her grandmother's new magazine. Grandmother was making feeble remonstrances but the small youngster continued placidly with her cutting. Aunt Grace turned to her mother.

She knew the word from the sound of its letters and promptly retorted to Aunt Grace, "WeH, you aren't so better yourself."
