He motored back to the Smith ranch, about seven miles northeast of here, where the plant is raised. The common name for this new stock fopd is "salt bush," and at the first glance appears to be but an ordinary weed, but under cultivation yields abundantly. "We have tested this salt bush at the college numerous times," said Professor Thom, "and have found It to contain as much potash, lime and protein as al falfa, and is nearly as good as alfalfa for feeding value, but it does not pre serve the fertility of the soil as does alfalfa. It is rich in flavor and just salty enough for stock. It often grows to a height of between seven and eight feet Salt bush seems to be well adapt ed to this soil. The Smith ranch is feeding 950 sheep on only 30 acres of this plant" Professor Holden and the photogra phers rejoined the party at Lacrosse, where the train stopped for two hours and two meetings were held one at the opera-house and at the high school.
