A bulletin of the Minnesota Experi­

and characteristics of the more common
farm croj«. aa alfalfa, clover, peas,
raj««, corn fodder, timothy, millet, etc.
In connection with the romjxvsltlon
of some of the crojxi the protein con­
tent of the seed 1« ronstilered. In the
case of clover, alfalfa. j«eas. beans and
rape two distinct types of seed are
shown to recur, one of high an«! the
other of low protein content, and ths
relationship of the physical character-
lstlcs of the seeds to the chemical com-
jxwltlon Is noted. The larger protein
rentent of the seed Is considered as a
jx-sslble factor In the production of for­
age crojia of high nutritive value. The
quality of the forage In live-stock feed­
ing Is of great Imjwjrtanre. because by
the use ot more concentrated nitroge­
nous forage rations can be prepare«!
requiring smaller amounts of grain«
and milled products. The result Is a

How to Save Steps.
In spite of the extensive development
and use of com harvesting machinery
the fact remains that much corn Is
still cut by hand. Therefore the ac­
companying sketch recently sent to the
New England Homested by a reader
will prove of Interest.
He has figured out that If the plan
outlined Is followed a slxty-four hill
shock, or «took, of corn can be cut at
a minimum number of stejm. The clr-
cles In the center represent the four
bills tied together or between which
the shock la built, After the founda-
