the basis of a quality equal to

as that which can be made by any
manufacturer.
Winter vetch is a name sometimes
applied by American seedsmen to hairy
vetch. The term winter vetch, how­
ever, should not be applied to hairy
vetch, as it is properly applied to the
winter strains of common vetch.
If planted In the spring hairy vetch

to be kept on the land two seasons

only 3 to 5 bushels of seed to the sere

as high as 10 to 11 bushels have been
reported.

ever before, according to the experi­

tlie campaign for the United States
Department of Agriculture. During
the past year the average cost per
head of testing cattle under govern­

duction of 11 cents from the figure of
the preceding yeqr. This reduction,
which was brought nbout largely
through the spread of the ares testing
plan, makes it possible to udvance
much more rapidly with the eradica­

all of the cattle have been tested at
one time are counties, and counties
free of cattle tuberculosis may now be
found In nearly all parts of the coun­
try from the Atlantic to the Pacific to
