Tbo Chicago, Burlington and Qulncy railroad will run an alfalfa combina tion railway and automobile train for a two weeks' campaign, making about 60 stops In southern Iowa and north ern Missouri, beginning July 28, 1913, from Des Moines. The plan, aa worked out by the Ilur llngton In co-operation with the Agri cultural Extension Department of the International Harvester Company of New Jersey and the agricultural col leges, la far in advance of any agri cultural extension work ever carried on. Will Stop at Sixty Points. Local committees at each of the CO points on the railroad will arrange for Are to ten automobiles to carry the speakers In all directions Into the coun try to farm homes, school houses and Inland towns within a radius or from four to ten miles, where alfalfa lec tures will bo glren. During the campaign orer COO al falfa lecturea wiil be delivered by the party to as many nudiencea, and from 500 to TOO automobiles will bo brought into the servlco of this great educational movement. These campalgna are couducted on strictly co-operative basis. The pcoplo will provide: 1st A guarantee of at least five to ten automobiles at each railroad stop to carry the speakers to the points In the country where meetings are to bs held. 2nd. Halls suitable for tbs central meeting In towns where tralu stops. 3rd. Any . community desiring a campaign must aend in a request to tbs railroad, agricultural college co operating, or to the Agricultural Ex tension Department, signed by a rep resentative number of farmers and business men. The railroad will provide: Sleeping cars and dining service for the alfalfa campaign party, and bag gage and exhibit cars, literature, etc. The Agricultural Extension Dept will provide: 1st Speakers. 2nd.

SAVE THE ALFALFA LEAVES. Sixty Ptr Cant of ths Feeding Value of Alfalfa In the Leaves Hay Should be Cut at Right Time and Cured so aa to Preserve the Leavee. Of ths entire alfalfa plant, accord ing to Kansas bulk-tin 155. the stalk comprises CO per cent, and the leaf 40 per cent., whereas the quantity of the protein in the stalk Is only 40 per cent., while the protein In the leaf la CO per cent. Moreover only 20 per rent, or the fat la to be fouud In tho stalk, while SO por cent, is In tbo louf. It Is, therefoie, very Important that alfalfa be harveated at the proper time, anj carefully handled so that all the leaves will bs rated.
