the number of mills reporting for l;i, to
gether with the Increase in the cut for

the field force of the Census Bureau, which

branohes of manufacture throughout the
United States, secured returns from prac

The cornmeal used with the malt in the

them by their failure to recognize the pos

Alfalfas la Dry Fannin.
On the outskirts of Ogden, to the north
and east, alfalfa Is being raised by dry
farming and excellent results are being
obtained on a piece of land of lees than
seventeen acres. Thirty-four tons of al
falfa was harvested In one cutting and
four crops of hay were obtained during the
season, the last three crops being, of
course, less than ths first, but aU aggre
gating an exceptional yield.
The land was not Irrigated and as but
little moisture was precipitated during the
late spring and summer the roots re
ceived only such water as was stored In
the ground from the winter storms.
There 'was a time when the farmers after
seeding their land to alfalfa did nothing
more than Irrigate until by excessive ap
plications of water they either drowned out
the roots or ruined the land by bringing
the dissolved alkali to the surface. Now
little or Co water is artificially applied, but
the ground instead is cultivated in the most
approved Campbell method.
The land which produced four eutUngs
without irrigation was harrowed early this
spring. Tbe teeth were sent down four to
five Inches In the soil, regardless of the
disturbing effect on the alfalfa roots. This
treatment left what is locally termed a
dust muloh and whtob upset capillary at
traction and acted as a conserving cover
for the moisture stored In the soil. As
ths growing season advanced, the alfalfa
forced Its way through the light coveting
and developed strong stems and rich,
.There was a time when a farmer who
attempted to cultivate alfalfa without ir
rigation would have been avoided as an
eccentric of questionable soundness ot
mind, but that waa before farmers gener
ally got out of the rut they were In and
gave less thought to the scientific side
of their most scientific occupation.

Story of Two Eskimos as Related to
Missionaries Assert Ice Mas
la Fine Shape.
CHICAGO, Nov. . Dr. Frederick A.
Cook was further discredited In a special
cable dispatch to the Chicago Dally News
today from its correspondent in Copen
hagen, Denmark. The story was the first
publication of the report of Knud Ras-must-en,
the Danish explorer, as sent by
him to his wife In Copenhagen and now
Blven out by her.
Contained in the story Is what purports
to be the statements of Cook's two Eskimo
companions in the polar quest, Itukusuk
and Apilaka, in which they confirm Com
mander Robert E. Peary's charge that
Cook traveled in a circle and never even
approached the pole.
Rassmussen In the story is quoted as
saying he himself did not interview the
men, but that their statements were taken
by Rev. Oustav Olsen and Kateket Sech
mann Rosebach, missionaries.
The dispatch to the Daily News says:
"Already In 1909, when I was on an expe
dition to Greenland," writes Raamussen,
"there existed grave doubts as whether Dr.
Cook really had reached the pole, so I
determined to find out from his two Eskimo
companions, i secured their statements
through the missionaries.
"We traveled from Annatook with eight
sledges in company with Dr. Cook at the
first sunshine (February). From there to
Kllesmere land we slept only once on the
Ice. It took four days to cross Ellesmere
land. Eighteen days out our companions
left us. We then had gone only about
twelve English miles from land.
No Reason for Stopping.
"The Ice was fine and there was no
reason to atop, for any one who wanted to
go on could do so. Then Dr. Cook took
observations with an instrument he held
In his hand, and we then changed our i
"We left here a lot of food for men and '
dogs and one of us (Itukusuk) went ahead
toexamlne the Ice. We reported It In good
shape, which it was, but Dr. Cook looked
at it and said It was bad,
"On the way baok ' we stopped at open
water near the land. We stopped one day
and went over to Rlngnas Island before
the snow had melted. (April). At this
time ths sun was Just below the horizon
at night. It was the month when it does
not get dark, (Marcri). "
"One day, I, (Apilak) came upon Dr.
Cook sitting down and drawing a map. I
looked at it and asked him:
" 'What route are you drawing?'
" "My own,' replied Dr. Cook.
" 'But that was a lie, because he drew
the map way out at sea where we never
had been.' . j
"We continued to shoot bears on the ice
till we had enough for the dogs. The small
rivers had only begun to break when we
reached Hell Gate.
"Here, as Dr. Cook directed us, we left
our dogs behind us, although they were
fat from the meat of bears. We crossed
the great sound and bad to push our boat
along the ice.
"Dr. Cook said I
" 'We will reach human beings (Bafflns
land) within two days.'
"We had slept twice when he looked
ahead and said be saw a tent, but it was
only a stone. Ws kept hunting for human
beings for a long time. Then we came to
an Island on which Elder birds were nest
ing. Ws fallowed the land past Cape
Sparbo and when our provisions were
nearly gone we returned toward Cape Sed
don, where we arranged for wintering.
Balld lloi.se for Winter.
"It was yet twilight, the whole night, and
w built a house of peat and stone. Just
as ws do at horns. We caught walrus,
musk-ox and bear for the winter. It was
a fine autumn and we had made provision
for the winter. During the dark time we

New York Strike Spreads.
NEW YORK. Nov. Although today
was expected to mark time In the strike
of express company drivers and helpers,
owing to the apparent disposition of the
labor leaders to postpone consideration
of the general strike until after election,
unexpected Interest was injected into the
sympathetic movement In aid of the strik
ers by announcement that 1.000 additional
taxlcab drivers had Joined the strike.
This made, according to Secretary Fors
ter of the International Brotherhood of
Teamsters, a total of 1.S00 ohaufeurs on
strike, despite the fact that 900 "taxi cab
bies" employed for the most part by smaller
companies which had mads agreements
with their men, went back to work today.
Both Speedy and effective.
