In other words it would take some twenty-two acres of corn to furnish as much digestible nutrients as we can get from 120 tons of silage obtained from twelve acres. The fact that many farmers are finding that It is possible through the use of a silo to almost double the number of cows for a given acreage shows In this con- nection that theory agrees with prac- tice. Again, how many pounds of cotton- seed meal are necessary to furnish 30,960 pounds of digestible nutrients? Cottonseed meal contains 66.3 per cent digestible nutrients. It would there- fore require 23.34 tons, which, at $30 per ton, means $700. Ii other words, twelve acres of corn in a silo are worth, a far as digestible nutrients are con- cerned, $700 worth of cottonseed meal, or the equivalent of $50 per acre. Furthermore, we find that the 120 tons of silage are equal in digestible nutri- ents to $800 worth of bran at $28 per ton. Again. 120 tons of silage are equal in digestible nutrients to 1,592 bushels of oats. If the average yield of oats is twenty-five bushels to an acre, which the 1908 year book shows, how many acres are necessary to pro- duce as much digestible nutrients as we find in 120 tons of silage? The an- swer is sixty-three. Alfalfa Silage. As land values increase and farmers and dairymen come to more fully ap- preciate the worth of green feed in winter the silo grows in estimation. Eastern farmers who keep cows or young stock of any kind use the silo more or less to conserve for winter the value of both green grass and corn. Alfalfa makes an excellent si- lage, but its peculiar quality of re- taining its green food value as hay, when properly cured, makes its east- lazing much less a necessity. Alfalfa hay taken from the mow in February, green, appetizing and nutritious, falls little, if any, short of serving the pur- poses of silage.--"The Book of Al- falfa." " A Model Dairy Barn. A novel banquet was held at the time of the Illinois State Dairymen's association In the dairy barn of the Illinois College of Agriculture. Their stable Is arranged so that two rows of cows face each other, with a space of about sixteen feet between stalls. Here a long. well decorated and lad- en table was spread for their guests. The floor, walls and ceilings were per- fectly clean and the cows groomed to perfection. The absolute cleanliness and absence of any odor were he uni- versal remark of all the guests.

Wright was arraigned on a charge of allowing Canadian thistles to row on a ranch. Mr. Wright is manager of the inter- ests of the Snohomish Fruit & Berr), company and it was as- serted in the complaint that he had failed to comply with the law which requires that steps be taken to eradicate the thistles before they reach the stage when they will spread. Mr. Wright was fined $10 and costs. In connection with the case it was stted that Canadian thistles have gained very little headway in Snohomish" county and the of- ffcial do not propose to allow them to get a fair start. The thistles are one of the great drawbacks of farming in the eastern provinces of Canada and it is almost impossible to get rid of them after they gain a foot- hold.--Everett Tribune. Quit Advertising In soliciting newspaper adver- tising m Southw, st Missouri i was informed by a crabbed old merchant that he had tried ad- vertising and had also experi- mented with goods that were ex- tensively advertised and in his opinion it didn't pay. in sur- pris I inquired how he arrived at such a conclusion. "Welt" he said, "I used to carry Ivory Soap, President Suspenders I=loleproof socks and a lot of other things you are always seein' advertised in the maga zines, and just for experiment, I tried runnin' a leetle space in the newspapers. The store used to be full of folks runnin' in for this aqd that. The result was that I had to hire a clerk at $5.50 a week and take tim chances of him holdin' out some of the cash he took in. I cut out ctt'ryin' a big part of the stuff you see ad- vertised and I quit runnin' any newspaper space, and now me and the old woman can take care lot the shop by ourselves,"--L. :L.W. How's This ?
