levumes. The legume best adapted to
your own locality to the best one to
g'-ov, at leat until careful e.pTi-nient-;
have shown that some tttor is
nn re profitable. In the west, where
the soil is Umiso nnd dry, alfalfa si iuto
down Its Ion-; roots to a source cf p-r-m.'iiient
water supply and yields abun
dant crops. Farther erst, where the
writer table is so nenr the surf;: v f
the irreui'd that the plants have "wt
feet" during a cuuuiderable purtkiii tf
the year, it docs Hot do as well. In
sialos cast of the Missouri river clover
Is inuch more desirable. A t.:i:nh iatch
of altall.i may be grown, but it docs
not fit into the system of f;;rniiii;,'
well eiioiU'll to be adopted on a lare
scale. It cannot be sown with tlie
small grain in the spring with any
surety of gelling a stand. The need is
expensive, and the hay is more diiil
ciilt to cure than ( lover.
Alfalfa dofJs nut come to its prime
for about three years, so lliat il is not
profitable to plow il up the second
year, as is done with chAcr. l'or tUi.t
reason it does not work well in the
standard rotation of corn, cats and
clover that meets w ith so much favor
in the corn belt. It bnw not lit In with
the rest of (he work as well as clover
either, as the lirst erop must 'be cut
Ju-t when the corn Is being hiiid by.
When a good stand of alfalfa has been
secured it yields twice as much as
clover, but this extra yield is coimler
balanced in most Instances by Its dis
advantages. Getting a Gland of Clsver.
The (pHstiHi of getting a stand of
clover is a troublesome one on many
farms. This is due largely to Improper
methods. The first point to consider
to the soil. Land that has been farmed
a number of years to likely to be add.
a condition which makes it ill fitted
to grow clover. This acidity can be
overcome by milling ground limestone
as suggested in article No. 2.
A seed bed in good tilth aniLfiee
from weed seeds is also an important
consideration. Little clover plants are
very tender and onnnott well compete
with weeds or force their way through
elrds. Land that has been kept rea
sonably free from weeds the previous
season to best for clover. Such land,
prepared as for oats as described in
artl. le No. 4, makes" an ideal reid bed
Clover s-eed should he tested for ger
mination before sowing. If It does not
germinate very well a larger amount

to the acre will have lo be sown. The
need should be cleaned carefully with
a clover seed grader to remove all
weed seeds, if pur. lia:--cd it should be
examined very carefully to ee that it
contains no weed seeds. If much of
the seed to b'adly slirholcd it should be
discarded entirely. This matter of test
ing the germinal Ive rtrengtli of seed
before I he regular sowing is made
does not receive the attention which
lis Importance demands. It needs in
argument to :diov that It Is the part
of prudence to make certain that this
cvviitial factor ju the hi ;n mi's cam

Clover should be cut as soon as it is

The first crop seldom fills well and to

should be carefully adjusted so as to
get all the seed. A bushel to a bushel

yield. The yield of liny is from one to
two tons to (he acre for the lirst erop

Capt. Caldwell, who commanded a
Delaware regiment In the revelation,
was notorious for his love of cock
fighting. He drilled his men ndnilr
nhly, and they were known in tho
army as "Caldwell's game cocks." Tho
gallant catitaln held a peculiar theory
that no cock was really game unless
It came from a blue hen, and this led
to the substitution of "ltlue lien's
Chickens" us a nickname for his regi
ment. After the revolutionary war the
nickname was applied indiscriminate
