A BANK ON WHICH YOU CAN ALWAYS BANK PEOPLES BANK Butler, Missouri Essentials to Success With Al falfa in Missouri. The Missouri Experiment Station has been conducting experiments with alfalfa on the various soils of the State for a number of years and as a result of these experiments, the fol lowing brief summary of the essen- tials to success are given. 1. It takes good land to grow al falfa without considerable care. Well drained creek and river bottoms as well as all well drained deep rich up lands will grow it readily where it is properly handled but for average to thin lands considerable care is neces sary to success. 2. On rich lands alfalfa may be spring sown, but on average to thin lands fall or late summer sowing is much more certain of a permanent stand. From the middle of August to the middle of September is best for central and north Missouri but in the south third of the State it is best to sow from the middle of September to the middle of October. 3. The seed bed must be well pre pared. For spring sowing it should be plowed deep and thoroughly worked down. For fall sowing the land should be plowed early and well settled below with a fine seed bed prepared on the surface. 4. Inoculation of uplands which have never grown alfalfa before is beneficial and usually necessary to success.- This is especially true in regions where sweet clover does not grow. Inoculation is best accom plished by scattering on 200 to 300 lbs. per acre of soil from an old al falfa field and harrowing in immedi ately. 5. Lime is beneficial on many south Missouri soils and it is often necessary to success. It should be applied at the rate of from 3000 to 4000 lbs. per acre in any convenient form. 6. On land of medium and poor fertility cultivation with a disk or spring tooth harrow followed by a drag harrow is necessary for best re sults after the second and third cuttings. 7. On lands of medium to poor fertility the application of 10 to 15 tons of manure before plowing is necessary tor best results, lop dressing with manure each fall, 4 to 6 loads per acre, is very beneficial unless the manure contains much grass seed. Foxtail, crab grass, and bluegrass are the worst enemies to alfalfa. 8. The application of 200 lbs. per acre of bone meal on all lands of medium to poor fertility is very help ful in securing a permanent stand. 9. On all lands of medium to poor fertility a man must be willing to give considerable time and care to the preparation of the lands, seeding and cvltivation if he is to achieve success. 10. The use of clean strong germ inating seed, free of dodder is essen tial to the greatest success. M. F. Miller, 'Agricultural Experiment Station Uni versity of Missouri, Columbia, Mo.

Parmer and Stock man, Don't stay in the fields till it is so late you are all tuckered out when you start in to do the milking. If you do you are sure to slight the job, which will mean not only less dairy products at present, but will wield a most deteriorating influence on the herd by causing a gradual falling off in milk production. To guard against typhoid germs be sure to give the well or cistern a good cleaning out, which may not only save your paying a big doctor bill, but even prevent the loss of some mem ber of the family. Year after year you will notice that most of your neighbor farmers leave their stack-yard fences right in the field, around the hay, till time to mow the meadow again. And what a job it is then to move the fences after they once become settled in the tim othy grass. Look up the price of a horse, then that of an automobile ten years ago. By comparing their relative values to day do you see much danger of our faithful horse becoming extinct or un profitable to the farmer? Some of our scientists (?) say that flies really are necessary and bene ficial, but we are going to keep right on scrapping with them (both the flies i and the long-haired scientists) with ! good screen doors, fly traps, tangle- j foot and cleanliness. A Missouri friend wants Furrows to tell him how to kill out Osage orange hedge. I wish someone would tell Furrows how to do it, for I have straggling bushes growing alongside a hedge that have sprouted from ex posed roots, that I would very much like to get rid of. Who can help us both? As the young poultry get well feath ered teach them to leave the crowded, filthy coops, and fly up to roosts in the hen house. They will be less susceptible to lice and mites, enjoy better health in general, and develop more rapidly than by remaining in the coops. One of the surest plans for keeping rid of the troublesome mites is to give tha poultry buildings a thorough spraying about every ten days, keep the roosts clean and the droppings well cleaned out. Calves that are fit only for veal should be marketed early, as the price is then higher than it is a few weeks later, and this, with the feed saved by early marketing, insures consider ably more profits than to hold the calves till they are larger. While the potatoes are in full bloom, showing which vines . are strong, vigorous, and most likely to propagate a sturdy plant next season, stick small boards beside these choic a.

It isn't too late yet to fertilize the grape vines, but you will need a sort of balanced fertilizer. Stable manure alone produces too rank a growth. Common wood ashes will furnish the required potash, and with a light sprinkling of poultry droppings, pro duces the highest quality and greatest quantity of fruit possible. Already we are beginning to slip about a pint of shorts and about one half that amount of corn-chop into the trough of the skim-milk calf. A pint of oats added to this makes a ration that cannot be beaten. If anyone is anxious to do some fly swatting he does not need to do much hunting to find the flies;" they are here, there and everywhere and al ways busy. We have been having some "bully for the corn" weather, but a fat man walking on the sunny side of a city street when the thermometer is trying to make a new record is liable to call it something else. Unless a "crop scare" develops later on in the season, the man who has been holding his corn for a high er price will keep right on holding it, at least until another summer, if he gets it With a normal yield over the present acreage, we'll see' no higher- J priced corn than we have right now ISo one snoula laugh at what is called scientific farming before he knows what he is laughing at As a usual thing the scientific farming of today will be the practical farming of tomorrow and it will take some hus tling to keep up.

The reception was an event which will long be remembered by all who were present. The large gymna sium was tastefully decorated in the Normal colors, and headquarters for each county organization were designated by pennants also in the Normal colors. On reaching the Gym the guests proceeded to the second floor where they were met by a delegation of the faculty who pre sented them souvenir cards upon which to write their names. These cards made it easy for the students to know each other's name's. From here all proceeded to the third floor. , Upon passing through the receiving line composed of President and Mrs. Hawkins, Mrs. Neet, Dr. Schofield and Mr. C. A. Phillips, the student was left to his own pleasure for a short time. This time was spent in getting acquainted and in listening to , the excellent music furnished by the orchestra. When the call was made for demonstrations from the county : organizations under their respective : pennants, the Bates .county people ' marched across the floor and looked j upon the track where, amid great en-, thusiasm a huge banner thirty feet long, bearing the words "Bates Co. Leads Them AH" was hoisted. After a short time spent in the county yells and songs, light refreshments were served and the guests began to take their leave. The Bates County Club - affected a permanent organization by electing P. G. Buckles, president; Maxwell Park, vice-president; and Miss Loy Ballfinch, secretary. The first program was rendered h Friday, June 16. Miss Minnie Christie gave a reading which was much en joyed. President Hawkins made a very interesting talk in which he commended the members of the club for their part in the reception and their earnestness in continuing their organization from year to year. He also mentioned the value of the social side in the club meetings. Mr. W. L. Coonrod rendered a "Bear Story" in his usual interesting style. The attendance was forty-two. Sev eral have not yet given their names to the secretary. The complete en rollment will be given later. S. E. S. number required bv law. Parties ' who desire copies must call upon their circuit clerks, as the Secretary of State does not fill orders for the session acts, as is the case with the Revised Statutes. State and county official's and mem bers of the General Assembly receive copies free, but others must pay 50 cents, that price representing the cost of produtcion. The shipment to the Circuit Clerk of St. Louis contained 1,000 copies. Five hundred were sent to Kansas City and 250 to St. Joseph. $2.00 Made in a Few Minutes.
