It Is commonly believed that the proper time to begin cutting alfalfa hay Is when the field Is about one- tenth In bloom. Cutting at such a time makes very good hay for cattle. but sucji hay Is too "washy" for horses at hard work. To make hay suitable for horses at hard work, al falfa must be allowed to become rather mature before cutting; in fact, the field should be in full bloom before the mower Is started. The hay should be thoroughly cured and stacked. Spe cial care must be taken to prevent spoiling or molding, as moldy, musty or dusty, hay of any kind Is injurious to horses. SOILINQ IS GOOD PRACTICE Kinds of, Crops to Be Grown and Man ner of Cutting and Feeding De- pend on Conditions. Soiling 13 the practice of growing va rious forage crops to be cut green and fed to live stock In that condition." Any crop, such as corn, rye, sorghum, oats, cowpeas and clover (which can be cut green and fed to live stock and eaten by them), may be vsed as a soiling crop. Corn, sorghum, rye and oats are probably best for this purpose in mos sections, yet In some place's other crops may be grown and the manner of cutting and feeding them will depend upon local , crop conditions and the kinds of animals to be fed.

Tennessee Agricultural Experiment Station.) If the wheat be preceded by cow peas, soy beans, or one of the clovers, or If a dressing or farmyard manure be made, then only acid phosphate at the rate of, say, 200 pounds per acre Is advised as a fertilizer. Otherwise a complete fertilizer, such as recom mended for corn, may be used. Under some circumstances a light dressing of, say, 40 pounds per acre of nitrate of Boda may. be profitably made in the fall, especially if the seeding be un duly delayed. Under usual conditions CO to 100 pounds of nitrate may be ap plied In the spring, as soon as early growth starts, but the margin of profit Is not great Cottonseed meaL dried blood, nitrate of soda, and other active forms Of nltroepnoim tfprtlllrpr ara detrimental to the germination of seed with which they come Into direct con tact, and the later and more unfavor- Notice To Women.

VALUE OF GOOD IMPLEMENTS Largely Responsible for Size of Crops end Economy In Production This Season. Good Implements will be responsl ble very' largely, for the size of the cropsand economy in production this year. Those who have used a dull ax in cutting down trees know how much energy is wasted in using a dull lm plement and Inefficient devices In work.. Why waste time and money In trying to farm with Inadequate Imple ments? The cost - of good lmple- menta Is not to be compared with their value. Save your labor and that of your teams with efficient Implements. SOIL PREPARED FOR MILLET Plow Land When It It Relatively Moist Throughout and Harrow It Thoroughly. ' In the preparation of the land for millet, the soil must be made very fine. Tlow the land when It is relatively moist throughout, so that It will not turn up lumpy, and harrow it until thoroughly pulverized, ft is well to roll the area after planting to make firm the soil over the seeds, and then to harrow it lightly to form an earth mulch and prevent the escape of moist ure.
