Professor Elliott replied: "I beliove
that the beat grass for the region you

have found Italian rye grasa doing quite
well. Tho land is much benefited by
the application of land plaster, or gyp-
aum. I doubt very much if you could

application of barnyard manure very
beneficial also, but I believo the best
way is to treat the land with lime and
land plaster; then follow with clover
and such other erops aa may bo do

wrltea: "Can you give me any infor
mation as to whether chicken manure is
too strong, and will thus burn and in

on the crown of the plant f In thia ro

that manure for fertilizing purpoioi ia

"Another point I wish to bring up is
tho care of a cow before calving, where
milk fever ia suspected. I lost ono
good animal from milk fever last fall,
and do not wish to take any more
chances, if I ean help it."
The station replied: "In using chicken
manure as a fertilizer it is better to
apply it in liquid form-. This form of
fertilizer is very high in its nitrogen
content, and also contains a consider
able quantity of potash. Put the ma
nure in a barrel or trough, then throw
water on it, later applying the liquid
to tho ground about the plants. Do not

"Dodder is destroying my clover."
writes J. O. C, from Rochester. "How
may I eheck itt"
Professor Elliott replied: "Dodder
ia usually planted with elover, and after
becoming established in the soil, fas
tens its tendrils to the clover, or other
plants which may be growing. Fmallv
it loses its attachment to the plant,
and becomes a true, parasitic plant. It
aaps tho life of the 'host plant' upon
which it uvea, and if it becomes very
strong in its growth, will eventually
destroy the host. To eontrol it, cut
out the patches of clover where it ap
pears, early in the season, before it has
.formed send. Rake this cut clover up,

WH KT AILS THE MILK?

"Will yon tell me what is the raatUr
with milk when it turns thick and
slimy, resembling a mixture of hot
water and starch," writes A. H from
Chelan Falls. "Whenever my cow
misses being milked, her milk for sev
eral days thereafter has this appear
ance. It tastes all right, but to me it
seems queer that milk should act this
way. Also, tell me how to find out if
an animal has tuberculosis."
Dr. K. W. Stouder, assistant pro
fessor of surgery, replied: "The coagu
lation of the milk you refer to is b
doubt due to a slight inflammation of
the udder, due to the retention of the
milk too long, coupled with some bac
teriological change in the milk, the lat
ter possibly being due to an infection
passing through the milk duct of tho
teat. The milk might, or might not, ba
wboleaome, depending upon the organ
ism causing the coagulation. Senti
ment, however, would revert against
the nse of such milk.
'In order to teat an animal for tu
berculosis, we use a biological product,
or toxine, known as tuberculin. Thia
must bo injected by an experienced op:
erator, hypodermlcally, and a earefnl
record kept of the temperature for sev
eral hours both before and after the in
jection. The test ia very reliable, but
n order to perform it, a person must
have had specific instruction, as well aa
some experience in its application."
KOREA WAKING UP.
E. E. S., of Walla Walla, wants to
know how to kill the " raorninc-clorv
weed." He was informed that:
"The extermination of this woed is
he hardost 'weed problem' that the ex
periment station has fared. Thp plant
a one of the most difficult weeds to
kill, but its redeeming feature is that
it does not sprend rapidly. It stays
where it gets its first start. Smother
ing by heavy applications of straw, or
nanure, ia a fairly successful method,
but cutting it off only makes it grow
more rnnidlv. It is urobahlo that x
cutting before the application of the
mulch would be advantageous. "
Milo M. Hastings, physiological
hernial of Christian's School of An.

Begins to Realize the Importance of
Maintaining Forest Area.
Korea, the Ilermet Kingdom, is wak
ing up to the nocessity of protecting its
remaining forests and replanting de
nuded tracts on important 'watersheds.
Japan is furnishing the inspiration and
part of the money which will produce
the change from the old order of things
to the new. A school for training
livorean foresters has already been pnt
in operation.
The two governments drew up a co
operative agreement last spring and
outlined a plan for the wise use of tho
forests in tho Yalu and Tumen Valleys,
and as a result a national forest poliey
for Korea has been developed. The
new Korean forest laws are similar to
those of Japan, according to United
States Consul-General Thomas Sam
mone, of Seoul.
Although Korean forests have been
exploited and neglected, and the coun
try has suffered severely from drouth,
floods and erosion, the denudation is
less serious than in neighboring prov
inces of China. One of the first meas
ures to be taken up will be the preser
vation of such wooded traets as yet re
main. In order to do thia, the govern
ment has taken all forests under its
care, whether they are publicly or pri
vately owned. The owners will not be
deprived of their property without com
pensation, but the government will rec-
ulate the cutting of timber, and in cer
tain caaes may prohibit all cutting on
traets which ought to remain timbered
"to prevont floods, drouths, landslides,
and to preserve unimpaired the scenic
attractiveness of places of public re
sort." All owners of timberland and
all leaseholders are required to report
to the government their holdings in or
der that the property may be listed and
cared for. Failure to report within a
year subjects the forest to forfeiture.
The forested area of Korea is about
,500,000 acres, which is only one-tenth
of the land on which forests ought to
be growing. Extensive timbered tracts
remain in the northern part nf the coun
try on the waters of the -ln and Tu
men "Rivera, and lumber iterations are
carried on in the mountain districts.
But in the agricultural sections of the
country wood is very scarce, and the
fuel problem is serious. Conl and other
mines have been opened by Americans,
and one of the moat pressing needs is
timber for use in and about the mines.
In thnt country, as elsewhere, large
quantities of timber are necessarv in
developing mining property, and it ia
noteworthy that a country as backward
ntiusirially as Korea can put into prac
tice the principle that the only sure
way of getting timber ia to grow it.
