Good Foraso Crops.
One of the best forage crops , when
the prospects for hay are not very
promising , Is peas and oats. The ease
with which it can be put in also recom
mends It. As soon as the ground is
fit to plant spread broadcast upon the
land a bushel and a half of peas to the
acre and plow under to the depth of
five inches. As soon as the peas be
gin to come up , sow over them the
same amount of oats per acre and
drag in , going over in both directions ,
so they will be thoroughly covered.
When the oats are in bloom Is the
time to harvest if you depend upon
them for hay. Cure as you would
clover and you will have a flue hay
that everything likes. It Is especially
good for cows and hogs , and the peas
and chaff furnish as fine a feed for
laying hens In the winter as I have
As a green feed for cows and hogs
this has no equal , as it is ready Just
at the time when you begin to be short
of pasture , and for the farmer who
keeps his cows up it will aid In keeping
the milk record at the highest notch.
If more farmers would try it as a hay
crop Just once they would recognize its
wonderful value as a forage crop.

An Experience vrlth Alfalfa.
My first sowing of alfalfa was on
ground that had been in potatoes the
year before , but being a wet year was
quite weedy , especially with nut grass
and foxtail. The ground was plowed
and cultivated until June 1C when it
was sown. With my present knowl
edge I would not again think of sowing
ground in the condition that this was
In. It would have been called in good
shape to plant corn , but all the weeds
should be destroyed for alfalfa. The
seed was sown broadcast and harrowed
in with a wecdor. It came on well ,
but on account of the weeds did not
make a full stand. Wo have cut now
for five years. Two years thirty-one
wagon loads for the seven acres , three
crops each year except In 1000 , then
four crops were securen. The second
and third years there were but few
woods except dock. The crop of 1007
was the sn.-iliest of any , about'three
tons per acre. It sold for $12 per ton
In the mow. Clay In Farmers' Guide.
It would be much better if the users
of commercial fertilizers would get into
the habit of adapting the fertilizer to
the soil instead of seeking a fertilizer
that is adapted to the crop grown. The
object In using fertilizer should be the
building up of the soil rather than
growing a certain crop , and a fertilizer
which will balance up the plant food
already In the soil Is an economical fer
tilizer to use on any crop , since the
effects of its application will show on
any crop that is adapted to the locality.
A farmer cannot afford to buy all of
the plant food that his crop will use in
its growth , then why should he buy
anything that his soil will furnish to
the crop In sufficient quantities ? Time ,
some crops will take more of a certain
element of plant food than another will.
Some crops have the power of getting
more food from a soil than others have.
It is better to remedy this by adopting
a Judicious rotation of crops In which
legumes will come In frequently. The
legumes will supply the nitrogen and
help to keep up the humus supply.
It is unfortunate for the farmer that
the fertilizer manufacturers have
adopted the plan of recommending cer
tain' mixtures for special crops and
thus to adapt the fertilizer to the crop
rather than to sell the goods on their
merits for the nitrogen , potash and
phosphorous acid they contain and
leave the farmer to select the goods
best adapted to his soil and conditions.
Making Denatured Alcoliol.
Denatured alcohol Is a good thing ,
but up to date farmers of this coun
try have taken little interest In making
it. The rosy dreams that some people
had in which they saw a revolution
in the methods of producing pow3r ,
riches for the farmers In the rotten
potatoes and other waste products of
the farm have not come true. The
Alcohol is dearer than kerosene. Pee
pie have not learned how to use al
cohol even if they were inclined to
buy it at the price.
There has been very little fArm-
made alcohol because there are MO
small etills for farm use and bocnu-o
government rules governing the manu
facture are so drastic and complicated
thanks to the friends of Standard
Oil In Congress that nobody dares to
go against them.
Secretary Wilson , who has always
had great faith in the proposition , is
determined to help fanners to get Into
the business of making alcohol , and
will equip the experiment stations with
small stills and teach the interested
ones how to do it.
There will be a plant at the Omaha
corn show , and maybe at some of the
big State fairs. These will help to
arouse interest in the manufacture aid
vse of alcohol and will hasten the time
when it will become an important ad
junct of fanning , as It has in Germany
and other foreign countries.
The secretary cannot light his lorch
of information too soon. The fanners
must be shown , and one lesson in a
practical farm plant will do more than
a million bulletins or a balloon full of
oratory by an institute lecturer.
American Farm World.
It Is necessaray to closely study tha
physical conditions of soils , that we
may have healthy and flourishing con
dition of plants. Through want of
proper drainage , or other neglect , . laud
is often allowed to get into an un
healthy state , which sooner or later Is
reflected In the character of the herb
age growing upon the soil.
The chief danger is probably poor
drainage , with consequent excess of
water and lack of sufficient oxygen In
the soil. Such a condition is weakening
and often results in the death of the
roots of plants growing in such soils.
Especially is this so to crops growing
in heavy clay soils , and where there is
an impervious subsoil. In such cases
many of the feeding roots of plants
are killed by suffocation during pro
tracted wet seasons.
Very often roots that may Just be
forming are killed in a few days , should
the soil become saturated with water.
Not only is there a loss of these feed
ing roots , but the vitality of the entire
plant becomes weakened.
Plants growing where the surface Is
caked and packed often suffer from
want of oxygen for the roots. This is
especially applicable to trees. In such
cases the annual growth is not only re
tarded , but the plants lose vitality and
become prey of insects and fungus
The remedy for such a condition is
deep and careful cultivation , and the
provision of some organic fertilizer.
This will provide plant food for new
growth of the roots and also lighten
the physical nature of the soil. Lime Is
also recommended for this latter pur
pose in the case of heavy clay soils.
The roots of all plants must have a
supply of oxygen. Without it they can
not deijvop. Deprived of this oxygen ,
they die of suffocation. The plant will
be poisoned by its own decomposition
products and will starve or become tha
pray of parastic enemies.

His whole face was one crust aud must

Then I took him to all the best special

do much for him. The eczema got on
his arms and legs and we could not
