Experiment Station Bulletin No. 120
The Nebraska Experiment Station
has just issued Bulletin No. 120, en
titled, "Alfalfa Management." This
gives a summary of the methods used
b3' the most successful farmers in
various parts of the state in securing
a stnnd and in handling u crop of al
falfa. The discussion relates to the
eastern as woll as to the western sec
tions. It lias been the purpose in writing
this bulletin to put the material in
such a form that the farmer can readi
ly llnd a discussion of the phnso, in
which he is particularly intoreted.
The first division treats of the kind of
soil best adapted to the growth of the
plant, with suggestions for treating
soil which does not give satisfactory
results. This is followed by a discuss-
two Weeks Each Year For SI.50.
Ion of t lie seed bed The method of
its preparation and the importance of
manuro receive a prominent place.
The farmers are advised to purchase
their soed from the north or from the
dry lands of the northwest, rather
than from the south. It Is also recom
mended that no seed be used which
hns not been tested for purity and for
germination by the government seed
laboratory located at Lincoln. This
test will be made free.
A discussion of the amount of seed
per aero and oT the various methods
of seeding will help the man who is in
doubt in reference to this point
Broadcasting is compared with drill
ing, both with a disk drill and a press
drill. Warnings are given to furmcro
who use either method, and suggestions
for greater success.
There is a comparison made of spring
seeding, early summer seeding, late
summer seeding, and fall seeding,
from which conclusions are drawn.
The late summer seeding is recom
mended for sections of tho state where
there is, plenty of moisture to give the
plants a good start at that season of
Tho important subject of disking
the alfalfa is discussed quite thoioly.
The conclusions arc based upon reports
which have bceurocoived from a large
number of farmers who have practiced
disking their fields to increase the
yield. -The results do uot seem to
warrn,l. the practice unless the flxld
is to be plowed up in a year or two
after it is disked.
Directions are given for thickening
the stand on fields where there are
not a sufficient number oi plants. It
is stated that this can be successfully
done iu many iiiituuccs. Recommend
ations arc made to alfalfa seed grow

MEASUREMENTS OF WHALE
The Length of Yearlings It Estimated
t From Thirty to Thirty
A government official, who has made
i Kprclul study of whales, states that
the averages length of a full-grown
sulphur-bottom whale Is JiiHt under
eighty feet. This ostlmato disregards
the exaggerated reports sometimes
spread by aullorH, and Is based on act
ual measurements of many Individual
specimens, There seem to be credible
accounts of whales reaching a length
of from elgbty-flvo to nlnety-flvo foot,
but the authority quoted has never
seen any of that size. Whales'appear
to grow with groat rapidity, ftie
length of yearlings being estimated at
from thirty to thirty-five feet.
How high cau whales spout? Photo
graphs taken by the scientist referred
to give a means of measuring with
,some accuracy tho height to which the
water la thrown. This appears to bo
much less than It has often been sup
posed to be. It Is claimed that even
the great sulphur-bottom whale, on
the average, spouts to a height of only
fourteen feet, although occasionally
the holght may be as much as twenty
Why He Couldn't Remember.
A kindergarten teacher tells a good
Joke on herself. She has been very
strict In requiring written excuses
from the mothers In case of absence.
The morning of the big snowstorm
only a few of tho babies made their
appearance. Tho noxt day they all
came with written excuses except one
tot, named Willie. When askod for
tils, he said: "I did ferdtt It."
tie was cautioned to bring It the
Willie's mother was quite disgusted.
It seemed to her that any ona with tho
slightest pretensions to gray .matter
ought to know the reason for his ab
sence. The next morning he arrived all
rosy with tho cold, and handed tho
teacher his excuse. It read:
"Dear Miss C : Little Wlllle'a
legs are fourteen InchM long. The.
now was two foet doop. Very truly
yours, Mrs. J ."
The Birthday Gift
The practise of gift-giving at Christmas time is a
modern fashion a habit. There is nothing in the original
significance of Christmas to even remotely suggest a gift.
It is nevertheless a beautiful idea.
A much more expressive and c orsiflcnl gift is a Biillc'z orthcr
anniversary gift. The anniversary is hers, or his very ownChristmas
is cverbody's. There is a distinction in the anniversary -gilt-a com
pliment that the Christmas gift lacks.
Give her, or him, or them, mother, sister, wife, father, brother, hus
band or friend-a gift on an anniversary and it means something
