Liberty st. Near Lexington also 314 s. Charles Brothers established seventy five Yean l Baltimore my Best time to mow Alfalfa. Wait until a a buds of new crop 8how. Then get it in per opt storage. First get your Alfalfa and then store it away with painstaking exactitude if you wish it to come out in a Fine Green color when the time comes for feeding it to the Stock. The old Rule was that Alfalfa should be Cut for Hay when the blossoms began to appear or were about one tenth in Bloom but one cannot rely accurately on this principle. A better guide is to begin getting Alfalfa hat in barn. Mowing whenever the buds or new boots at the Root crowns Are Well started. These shoots Are the beginning of the new crop and indicate that the other growth is matured. When Cut better Hay is produced the new growth starts quickly Aud the next cutting will come on speedily. Delay in harvesting the first crop especially May mean one less cutting in the season for if the oncoming shoots Are Cut off growth is checked and the maturity of the following crop delayed. On the other hand if Cut before the appearance of these shoots the experience has been that injury will result. It is preferable to Cut Alfalfa when the Dew is off although Many Cut whenever most convenient. Mowing in the late evening is favored by not a few who claim that the night s Dew on the fresh Alfalfa has no effect. In the drier climates and sometimes elsewhere in dry seasons the curing of Alfalfa is comparatively simple. Then the struggle is to prevent it becoming so dry that the leaves will drop for it should be remembered that the leaves Are by far the most valuable part of the Plant Well cured they Are Worth More than wheat bran in the feeding ration. Hence it is imperative that the Hay be raked before the leaves shatter and put in Large Cocks if possible. Bunching with rakes and then stacking or stacking direct from the windrows is not uncommon in the West in order to save time and economize labor where Alfalfa is extensively grown. Another important reason for raking Early is that it is through the leaves that the moisture in the Plant is evaporated in curing. If dried up they will not perform this function and the result is poor Hay. Doubtless for the highest Quality of Alfalfa the kind that would bring top prices curing in the old fashioned Way of putting into Cocks after raking into windrows and then storing when fit is the plan to be commended. A reasonably Good test of its fitness for storing is to take a Wisp of the Hay from the inside of the cock and twist it. If no juice exudes it is ready. The greatest problems in Hay making Are presented by a Rainy country. Here Alfalfa should be put in narrow Cocks the same Day preferably As Cut rain coming the following night will do Little or no harm and the Cocks of Green Alfalfa will turn off water quite Well. By opening and turning the Cocks the next Day provided the weather is suitable the Bay May be ready for stacking in the afternoon. Of course under right conditions it May be left in the cock longer. When Alfalfa has been once dried and then rained upon the greatest damage is done. Also it should to exposed to Dew As Little As possible. Some consider the Tedder useful in curing especially where the crop is heavy but it must be employed with judgment or Many leaves will be kicked off. On Small areas or where Hay is dear the use of Hay Caps will be found profitable and were Rains Are abundant the first cutting especially is often nowadays ens led which saves the entire crop for practically no curing is required when intended for the silo. Shelter is always a consideration and to provide it is one of the Best investments that can be made where the Hay crop is an important feature. A barn is the Best and a Hay shed the next Best place for storing. Great quantities of Hay however Are stacked in the open which brings to the fore the Art of stacking. It May be said Here that there Are less waste and loss in the same Quantity of Hay in a Large stack than if it were put in smaller ones. It is desirable to provide some sort of foundation for the stack in order to keep the Alfalfa off the ground and at the same time permit the free circulation of air underneath. There is too much loss from moldy and Rotten Hay in the Bottoms of stacks built on the Earth. A rather narrow High stack with Good sized uniform bulge properly drawn in and topped out with wild or other Hay is Well adapted to shedding rain. Remove useless horns. May adorn cow but often Load to serious damage. Since Pietertje maid Ormsby made the great record that won first place in the thirty Day division and had her picture so widely published Many letters have come to me in regard to her says superintendent m. H. Gardner of i the Holstein registry at Delavan wls., in. A letter to the american cultivator. Several breeders show curiosity As to her Lack of horns one or two commenting unfavourably. As an individual proposition a neat pair of Short nicely curved waxy horns on a cows head May be something to be admired. As a general proposition the cow of today has no need of such weapons and if she has them will surely Uso them on her mates in the Herd and cause More or less loss to the owner. Ages ago when the ancestors of Pietertje maid Ormsby ran half wild in the forests of Europe it was necessary for the cow to protect her calf from the depredations of wolves Aud other beasts of prey and the horns which nature had provided for that purpose were a necessity hut such conditions no longer exist and our breeders May Well ask themselves As to what useful purpose Cau be served by Boms on the head of a cow. Pietertje maid Ormsby never had any horns because their growth was prevented. When a Elf of about three weeks old As soon As slight swellings showed where the horns were to be she was Laid on her Side and the hair closely clipped front both swellings. Then the swellings were moistened with water and carefully rubbed with a stick of caustic Potash and the work was done with absolutely no pain to the Little animal. A duty.

The period of late july and August affords the Best time for the drainage of Many wet areas of land a Kich Are so saturated that they Are fitted with water at other seasons says professor e. O. Fippin of the new York state College of agriculture. Particularly a it desirable to Drain heavy Clay land at this season in order that the soil which is thrown out May have an Opportunity to thoroughly dry before being returned to its position Over the tile. This period of Slack work is also Worth considering for the drainage of those other wet areas on the farm which show themselves in the Field by the dwarfed crop and the distress which it suffers during these dry periods. Those places which suffer most from drought Are often the same areas which have had an excess of water in the Early Spring. The application of Lime on old Meadows and upon other land which is to be slowed for a crop next Spring should now be considered. Caustic forms of Lime which Are generally most economical in this state Are Best applied in the fall provided they Are distributed in the finely powdered form. Fall applications followed by late fall or Early Spring blowing Are preferable. Post lifter that lifts. Costs practically nothing but no Patent device can beat it. Take an old solid Eom planter wheel and set it As closely against the Post As the Chain will allow. Put a Hook a on the end of the main Chain using a Shorter Chain to go around the Post no Post can stand this. Just at the top of the ground. Hitch a horse at a with a Long Singletree. This is the Best Post lifter Ever and can be rigged up in the shortest time. The upward pull on the Post May be increased by placing a triangular Block in front of wheel.

Oats Are the Best single Grain food for a horse and the Best for read purposes. A Good Colt bred for a purpose and fed and trained for a purpose is never a drug on the Market pure feed plenty of air and regular exercise Are Best for the Mother horse. But done to overdo the work. The individuality of each horse should be studied and the feeds supplied to meet individual requirements done to shut up a Little Colt in a Ding place by himself. Give him companionship. A calf will do if there Are no other Colts on the farm. If the Lawn is weedy and the Gross does not seem to make a Good growth apply of soda at the rate of 150 to 200 pounds per acre. Scatter broadcast lust before a rain or before watering. Nitrate of soda May be used on spinach and other Leaf crops to advantage. Quite contrary.

In most accounts of Snake charming in India the Snake Stone plays an important part when the charmer is bitten the Stone is applied to the bite and is supposed to Aid in his recovery. Writing in the London Field lieutenant l. Mackenzie gives some notes on two of these stones which he had the Opportunity of seeing. They were triangular in shape Flat and rounded with smooth polished Black surfaces. They Are said to come from the Hills of Tibet and to he the solidified saliva of the Mokhor. This animal is spoken of in lieutenant Mackenzie s note As the a persian Snake its saliva is thought to contain an antidote to Snake Poison. The Mark Hor is a species of wild Goat found in India Tibet and Kashmir.
