A trace of the tonnenit Idea remains
In the skirt of this gown, which is cut
to Hare out nt the hips. The long
sleeves are of plain crepo and the
bodice and upper part of the tunic of
satin and of crepe with the new em
broidery. The lines are almost
straight,, with an inconspicuous and
soft girdle of satin, playing hide and
geek with tho embroidered crepo on
the bodice. Measured by present
standards, this gown may be called
elaborate. A cluster of silk and
chenille flowers on tho bodice do their
part toward brightening Its dignified
color, which Is taupe, but might be
dark blue or gray or black with equal

The hat at the right is merely a
large puff of velvet over a narrow
drooping brim, bound with ribbon. It
has a collar, and long ends nt the back
of grosgraln ribbon. Tho small

INOCULATION IS BESTif!
Many Failures With Alfalfa At
tributed to Its Neglect.
Best Growth of Plant Is Possible Only
When Bacteria Are on Roots Mis
souri Expert Describes '
A largo number of fnllurcs with ol-
falfn nmy be attributed to the neglect
of proper Inoculation. Alfalfa tins not
teen generally grown In tnnny sections
long enough for tho bncterln needed
for fts roots to become widely distrib
uted. In such places these must be
npplled when the nlfnlfn is needed.
If the crop Is not Inoculated It mny
stnrt well with a good stand of plants I
and grow vigorously for some time;
but after a season or longer the plants
weaken, become Irregular, often yel
low In small nrcus and eventually dlo
or remain too poor to produce hay.
Such are typlcitf symptoms when In
oculation Is lacking. If tho crop Is
properly treated It makes a more vig
orous growth the older It gets, and has
a distinctly healthy, green appearance
This Is tho result of the bncterln
which live ou Its rpots and supply tho
nitrogen necessary for the dark green
color and heavy growth. Such growth
takes place, not nt the expense of the
nitrogen In tho soil, but as n result of
tho nitrogen In the air, which cannot
bo used by plnnts without bacteria
The best growth of alfalfa Is possible
when the bacteria are on tho roots;
and slnco they art not usually present potatoes can best be secured by grow
In the soil, tho seed must bo treated mK healthy potatoes, and not by lu-
with them nt the time of seeding.
Inoculntlon of alfalfa has pro
nounced effects. It Increases' and some
times doubles the yield of liny, by giv
ing larger plants with more leaves. It
makes the hay richer In protein by
feeding the plnnt nitrogen, tho essen
tial constituent of protein, which gives
tho hay a greater feeding value. In
addition to this It supplies the plant
with nitrogen from the air, and thus
leaves tho soil richer after the crop
than It was before.

Missouri collego of agriculture men
tions ways of Inoculating nlfalfa. In
tho first place, soli where alfaifn or
sweet clover Is growing with plenty of
nodules on the roots mny be collected
and broadcast on the field nt tho rate
of n hundred or more pounds per aero
ht seeding time. In tho second plnce,
seed may be lnoculnted by means of
soil, or by artificial cultures which can
be secured from many commercial
firms or from tho University of Mis
souri collego of agriculture. This
method is preferred iy many since it
Is less laborious and the process Is
simple. Tho effort required to lnocu-
latc by either method Is so small and

CLEAN EGGS ARE ESSENTIAL
Necescary That Nests Contain Plenty
of Unsullied Litter Oat or Wheat
Straw Is Best.
It Is necessary, to make sure of
cleun eggs, that nests contain plenty
of clenn litter. Oat or wheat straw,
cut short, is best. It it well too. to
put at bottom n handful or so of to
bacco stems, which will do much to
keep nway llco and mites. To avoid
eggs getting chilled, they should be
gathered regularly twice u -luy, even
oftener In very severe wenthui. It takes
little time, -Kid prevents loss of good
eggs. Then keep them In a tempera
ture of 45 to 55 degrees.

PLAN FOR HEALTHY POTATOES
Regulation Against All Tubers Not
Treated With Formaldehyde Not
One form of 'regulation suggested
to keep potatoes free from dlseaso
provides for a. state or local quaran
tine against all potatoes, not treated
with formaldehyde at the point of
origin. This is hardly feasible In com
mercial practice for a variety of rea
sons and because black-leg, wilt, nnd
I other troubles aro not reached by tho
treatment, while reinfection by tho
scab might occur In tho cars, ships, or
warehouses during shipment.
The evidence shows that healthy

grower can eliminate or control nine-
tenths of tho potato diseases, and will
do so If his market requires It and If,
a premium Is pnld for the oxtrn labor
involved. A closer connection between

repented as often ns an examination of
tho plants show It Is necessary. Where
sprays aro employed they should be
applied in a fine mist, since coarser ap
plications tend to gather In drops on
tho leaves and run off.
ERADICATION OF BLUE GRASS
