Slnco sudnn grass was introduced
into the United States about 13 years
ago, It has bocomo moro widely used
each year, both as a pasturo and a
hay crop. Its greatest value, In Nebr
aska, says tho University of Nebraska
Agricultural College, Is its uso as
supplementary pasture. A small acre
age of this grass will carry more
Block thruout the season thnn any
other pasture crop except sweet
clover, and gives good pasture when
othors are dried out. All kinds of
sock llko It and do well on It, The
seed is cheap nnd it is as easy to
grow as millet, is being handled in
about tho same way as the latter. It
has been known to cause some poison
ing but so far no reports of that
kind havo come from Nebraskn.
It may ho sown with tho ordinary
grain drill at tho rao of 20 to 25
pounds per acre, any tlmo from the
15th of May to July 1st The seed
bed should bo plowed and well work
ed down beforo seeding. It should not
bo pastured until it has had about
six weeks growth. Earlier than this
tho plants aro not. well rooted and
may bo killed out. Sudan grass is
also regarded as a very good hay
crop. It will generally make two cut
tings, yielding from 2 to 3 tons to
tho acre. Tho hay is very palatable
and has a feeding value equal to tim
othy. Its greatest feeding value will
be obtained If It is cut aB It is well
headed out but before It is in full
bloom. No doubt many of those farm
ers who have wlntor killed wheat,
will find tills a very good catch crop.

(n uddllluu to adding plant food to
the soil nnd Improving Its texture,
organlo matter, supplied by green
manure crops, stable manure, or in
any other form, adds greatly to tho
moisture holding capacity. It hns been
shown, says the United States De
partment of Agriculture, that while
100 pounds of sand can hold only 25
pounds of water and 100 pounds of
clay 50 pounds, the samo weight ot
humus or decaying organic matter
will hold 190 pounds.
Clay soil containing organic matter
is more friable than similar soil with
out organic matter. When the organ
ic matter Is entirely removed, the
clay remains compact during lreeiv
ing nnd thawing. When organic mat
tor is returned the soil crumbier, af
ter freezing, Just as tho original soil.
Not only do tho higher plants grow
better in n soil rich in organic matter
but tho activities ot the soil bacteria
aro largely dependent on the supply
of decayed vogetable matter. These
bacteria need food and arr. Their fcod
is the dead vegetable matter, which
they break down and mako available
to tho higher plants. Most beneficial

is being carried on. Among other
things there wil bo n chance to soo

strains of winter wheat and oats.
Some of theso show striking differ

various time and methods of seed bed

Those who aro pasturing sweet elo

Inches in length, suggests tho Uni
versity of Ncbrnskn Agricultural Col
logc. If this is not done It wilt soon
get rnnk, conrso and woody nnd tho
flavor will becomo so strong that It
will not bo relished. In somo enscs
it will bo necessary to put as high as
four or five head per aero In ordor
to keep' It down. Later In tho season
when tho growth is not so rapid the
number should bo reduced. Whore
sweet clover Is used In addition to a
permanent pasture, it is a good plan
to chongo tho stock from one to tho
other, keoplng them on tho sweet
clover long enough to control tho
growth. There socms to bo but very
llttlo dnngcr of bloat on sweet clover.
Whore sweet clover is used for hay,,
tho tlmo of cutting is important, par
ticularly If It Is the second year's
growth. It should bo cut beforo tho
crop gets too coarno anrt woody.
Whore tho first crop of tho second
year's growth is to bo cut for hay,
the tlmo of cutting is very importnnt.
If let stand too long, tho lower buds
on tho stoms will die duo to over
shading. Since tho second crop comes
from buds along tho stem nnd not
from the crown as with alfalfa, It
is necessary to cut tho crop high
enough to leave llvo buds, a special
shoo on tho outer end of tho sickle
bar will help in cutting high. If left
to long, besides thoro being danger
of killing tho crop. Tho hay will be
coarse nnd woody. Theso points nro

over tho state of Nebraska aro report
ing that thoy havo received many
.calls for poultry culling during tho
month of May nnd Juno. A great deal
of stress has boon plnccd upon tho
fact that there Is n right and a wrong

hot weather In tho early summer
which is usually tho first of July,
and until tho first cool weather In
the fall which comes usually In tho
first part of October. Tho wrong tlmo
of tho year to cull is between October
first and July first. About Juno first,
nt tho Univorsity of Nebraska Agri
cultural Collego, a certain hen wns
examined nnd found to bo In tho con
dition stntcd below. Her comb wns
pale, she was losing feathers, her
skin wns yellow, tho logs woro well
rounded, tho bndomon depth, tho dis
tance between tho end of tho brenst
bono nnd tho two polvlc bones wns
only ono nnd one-half fingers, when
it should havo boon four or flvo, tho
polvlc, bones were crooked and nar
row. All of theso conditions If existing
in tho middle of July, would hnvo
pointed out very definitely that the
hen wns a poor producer. But when
this hen's trap nest record waB in
vestigated, it wns found that sho had
laid ono hundred twenty-four eggs
slnco tho first of November. Her poor
condition wns duo to tho fact that
sho hod been broody for throo weeks.
Loss of many valunblo hens is cnuscd
by untimely culling. In ono case it I
was found that a professional culler
had purchased all tho hens ho had
placed In contlnmcnt as culls. It tran
spired latter that ho had taken all
of tho laying hens for ho prleo paid
