CROW MORE LEGUMES
What is a legume? One of the gen
eral characteristics of this type of
plant is that it grows its seeds in pods.
Good examples are clover, vetch, nlfal
fa, peas, beans, soy beans, etc. There
are practically no S0H3 upon which
some one of these plants do not thrive,
in fact there is a special clover adapt
ed to each and every type of soil.
Sweet clover does remarkably well on
the strongly alkaline soils of Eastern
Oregon. Red clover Is well adapted
to the neutral soils of the Willame'.tc
Valley. Crimson Clover, white and el
aike clover, are adapted to the more
poorly drained soils and to those of
considerable acidity. But there is an
other peculiarity about legumes in gen
eral, which is both interesting and im

RAPE IS GOOD CATCH CROP
As a catch crop, sown in cultivated
land, as in the corn at the last culti
vation, rape makes an exceptionally
good fall and winter pasture crop.
Turnips may also be sown at tiio
same time as rape, the best time be
ing just before the fall rains set In.
Radishes and white mustard may also
be sown at this time, and will pro
Vide much food for the fall table.
Practically all of the high record
cows, particularly those of the Jer
sey breed, that have recently made
world records In Oregon, have been
fed rape or kale. Both of these plants
have a high protein content and are
daily valuable la keeping up the
milk flow. Rape also makes a very
good sheep or hog pasture, and
where Bpring sown provides a valuar
