on this account it was difficult for me

Alfalfa Chat Will
Prof. Niels Ebbesen Hansen
and Discovers New
NIELS EBBESEN HANSON profes
sor of horticulture at the State
College of Agriculture, Brookings,
S. D.,and chief plant explorer for the
Department cf Agriculture at Washing
ton, has just returned from his third
journey to northern Asia, bringing back
three new varieties of arctic alfalfa, a
clover that will grow through ice, and a
grape that is suitable to the semi-arid '
regions of this country. Prof. Hansen
"The most interesting things I found '
were a clover plant and an alfalfa grow-;
ing near the point of greatest cold in '
northern Asia. It was between Ya-!
kutsk and Verkhoyansk, north of Lake
Baikal, on the sixty-second parallel of
latitude. Clover and alfalfa grow wild
there and live through the winters
where the temperature falls to 60 and
even T.'i degrees below zero and the
meicury freezes in the glass. They
are not cultivated at all. There are no
farms in that region; the people are
nomads and have no town.
"I got my seed a little farther south,
where the mercury freezes every win
ter at 10 below, and both plants will
endure that degree of cold with the
ground bare of snow. I brought a lim
ited amount of the seed and will plant
it at the experiment stations of the
Agricultural Department so as to raise
a supply for distribution among the
farmers of our own Northwest; but it
will be several years before the dis
tribution can be made, because we
must have it thoroughly tested before
we can let any of it into private hands.
"Yes, I got 2.ri0 lots of seeds and
plants, all of economic value, mainly
for the northern sections of the United
States, to help the farmers in securing
a rotation of crops, so that their land
may not be idle and the seil may not be
exhausted. Other seeds and plants in
my collection will be valuable in dry
farming and in fruit culture, and in the
semi-arid and northern sections of the
country. One of the alfalfas will he a
National forest Bill Signed,
By signing the bill for the creation
of the Calaveras National Forest, Cali
fornia, President Roosevelt has com
pleted the legislative act which saves
for all time the most famous grove of
trees in the world. The people of Cali
fornia, particularly the !"00 women of
the California Club, have been working
! to interest the Government in this won-
than nine years, but not until now has
it been possible to arrange a plan satis
factory alike to the owner of the land
and to Congress.
The Senate Bill passed by the House
of Representatives has just been signed
by the President. Everyone interested
in the great natural wonders rejoices
that as a means of saving the Big
Trees, the way has been paved for a
practical exchange of the timber in the
groves for stumpage on other forest
land owned by the Government. The
first Calaveras Bill was introduced in
the Senate four years ago by Senator
Perkins of California. Bills for the
same purpose were passed in the upper
house of Congress a number of times,
but always failed of favorable consider
ation in the House until Senate Bill
1-771, also introduced by Senator Per
kins, was called up by Congressman S.
C. Smith, of California, last week.
Robert C. Whiteside, of Diiluth,
Minnesota, a prominent lumberman op
erating in the Lake States and on the
Pacific Coast, is the owner of the Cala
veras Big Trees. After his agreement
to the proposals which are simply a
practical exchange of timber for tim
ber, the entire California delegation
gave its solid and enthusiastic support
to the bill. No appropriation is needed
to carry out the provisions of the act.
The land to be acquired under the
bill includes about 0 acres in what is
known as the North Calaveras Grove
in Calaveras County, and 3,040 acres in
the South Grove in Tuolumne County.
The North Grove contains ninety-three

are 1,.'W0 of these giant sequoias. Any

great thing to sow in the clearings in
northern Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnes
ota and Maine, where the timber has
been cut away. It is especially adapt
ed for that sort pf soil and conditions.
"1 got a good supply of Persian
clover seed and expect to get more. It
is especially suitable for western Texas,
New Mexico, Arizona and the western
parts of our cotton belt.
"1 came home across ancient Trans
Caucasia, via Titlis and Batutn, over
the Caspian Sea, and took a steamer
for M arseilles which stops at many
port to discharge and take on cargoes,
so that 1 had an opportunity to go
ashore and see a good deal. I left the
steamer at Corsica and went over into
Italy to study the lucernes, which are
the alfalfas of Greece and Italy. From
Marseilles I went to Algiers and mane
a journey into the heart of the Desert
of Sahara, to study the alfalas there.
"I brought home some seed front
that desert also. The Arabs have
grown alfalfa as fodder for ages. It
was curried over into Spain by the
Moors from Africa; from there to
South America and Central America
and Mexico, and from there to Cali
fornia, and that is the roundabout way
in which alfalfa was introduced into the
United States. At thi town of Biskra
in the Desert of Sahara from the Arabs
I got a quantity of the seed of the
original alfalfa. A part of it will be
experimented with by the Department
of Agriculture, and I will take a part
to Dakota, where we will use it in the
evolution that is being carried on by
our plant breeders.
"The ideal alfalfa of the future will
be a hybrid of all the alfalfas of the
world -the wild and cultivated species
from all continents and from all climates.
We now have the best materials, and
by the proper use of them we ought to
be able to produce the final variety for
those sections of the United States
where a perennial forage is needed w ith
which to feed our future meat supply."
ence, or six feet through, is not con
sidered in the count of large trees. Be
sides the giant sequoias there are hun
dreds of sugar pines and yellow pines
of astonishing proportions, ranging to
the height of 275 feet and often attain
ing a diameter of eight to ten feet.
There are also many whito firs and in
crease cedars in the two tracts. A
government study of the land was made
by a field party under the direction of
Fred (J. Plummer, United States For:
est Service, in 1 1H Mi.
The Calaveras Big Trees are known
the world over. The North Grove con
tains ten trees each having a diameter
of twenty-five feet or over, and more
than seventy having a diameter of fif
teen to twenty-five feet. Most of the
trees have been named, some for fa
mous generals of the United States and
others for statesmen and various states
of the Union. "The Father of the
Forests," now down, is estimated by
Hi tie!, in his "Resources of Cali
fornia," to have had a height of 4."i0
feet and a diameter at the ground of
more than forty feet when it was
standing. "Massachusetts," contains
11S.000 board feet of lumber; "Gover
nor Stoneman," contains 1 OK, 000 Iniard
feet, and the "Mother of the Forest,"
burned in the terrible forest fire which
licked its way into a part of the grove
last summer, contains 10."j,00() board
feet. Each of these trees namel grows
as much lumber as is grown ordinarily
on fifteen or twenty acres of timber
land. The bark runs from six inches
to two feet in thickness. Among the
other large named trees in the two
groves are "Waterloo," "Pennsyl

Some one sent the boss a bunch of books en

he's been looking them over, for when I came to
work this morning he handed me this: Every
thing comes to those that wait, and the lazy boy
waits to greet it; but success conies on with a
rapid gait, to the man that goes to meet it." 1
