Alfalfa hay rcrjulron careful
method of handling. It In no crop
for the cnrok'H farmer, but It In a
very profitable ono for tho fnrmor
who wilt tako tho trouble to learn
how to handle It. Ono of tho moid.
Itnportunt thing to lenrn In just
how to make alfalfa hay, according
ot HpcclullBts of thn United Htatca
department of nKriculturo.
Alfalfa does not euro at all read-'
lly, und good quullty hoy In hard to

Time of Cutting.
Mont farmom are prono to cut
their alfalfa too early. They aro
nnxloun to get moro cutting, thoro
by thinking to get n bigger crop.
Tho fact In tho extra cutting In
freijuontly mado at tho oxpenno of
total tonnage. Tho real lent of tho
nlzn of thu ncanon'H crop In total
tonnngo rather than number ot cut
ting. Where four cutting nro ponslblo
thrco UHtiuUy aro moro dcnlrablo
and moro profitable. Moro hay In
actually made for tho neanon and
tho plant are left In better condi
tion for tha wlntor.
Tho flrnt growth usually la rank,
nometlmoH canning tho farmer to
think It ithould bo cut boforo It
really In ready. Tho ntago of

rather than tho nlxo of tho plant.
Tho general rulo In to cut alfalfa
Juki an It In coming Into bloom nnd
tho banal nhootn nro making n
good Mart for tho next crop. , In
tho cantcm states cutting earlier
may Injure and frequently kill tho
plants. Cutting later lowers tho
feeding vnluo of tho hay.
MetlnxU of Harvesting.
Method of making alfalfa hay
vary In different section of tho
country, but tho basic principles
nro tho name. Tho motto every
where In: "Curo alfalfa hay quick
ly, with rh little handling nnd ex
posure to tho weather an possible.
Hapld curing holds tho leaves on
better, Loss handling knocks
fewer of thorn off. This Is Import
ant because tha loaves nro tho most
nutritious part ot tho plant.
In tho west, where thorn Is llttlo
rain during tho haying nannon, tha
mowers aro started In tho morning
and tho hay rnkod Into windrows
tho following day. Tho hay Is
then cocked or stacked or baled di
rect from tho windrow ns noon as
thn hay Is suflcloutly cured.
Tho raking commoncos as soon
as tho leaves aro wilted, but- when
thu steins aro mill green. It Is
cocked when tho stems nro "half
dry' It may bo stacked when
molsturo can no longor bo twisted
out of a wisp ot tho liny.
Uulld stuck carefully and in a

Anchor a well-mndo thatch with
rocks on tho ouds ot wlro on top
ot a properly mado stack, nnd tho
buy will keep almost ns woll as In
tho barn; in fact, it may koop bet
ter, on account ot thu likelihood of
now alfalfa hay heating In tho mow.
Particular cnro must bo takon at
the flrnt cutting on this account.
If tho hay is put In tho mow it
Is well to provtdo for soma' oxtrn
ventilation, especially lf( its mols
turo content Is high. Thin can bo
arranged by placing horizontally nt
frequent Intervals vontllatora mndo
Theso may bo simply a trnmo

Haymaking is nn operation that

that is nlwnyn llnblo to bo mado

For this roason thoro Is no fnrm

"I havo gained eighteen potindi
nltico I commenced taking Tanlac,
and nover felt batter In my life than
I do now," Hald Alek Miiiihoii, who,
boforo bin health failed, was a valu
ed employe of tho Foundation Ship
Ilulldlng Co., and live at 11.14
Michigan Avenue., l'ortland, Oro.,
tho other day.
"Whon I began taking Tanlnc,"
ho continued, "I hadn't boon ablo
to hit n lick of work for over a
year, and I had boon nattering tcrrl-
ibly from my stomach tor nhout four
yonrn. It seemed to mo that I had
mado ovcry posnlblo effort to over
conio this troublo, but my condition
gradually grow worno, and about a
year ago 1 reached tho point where
I had to give up my work altogether.
Everything ato disagreed with mo.
and for two or threo hours ofter
meal I would bo all bloated up with
gas, nnd would have tho wornt
cramping pains in tha pit of my sto
mach n man ever had. Than, thin
ga would often get up Into my
client and mako my heart palpltato
something awful, and It would be al
most Imposslblo for mo to got a good
breath. I also suffered from consti
pation nnd often had splitting head
ache. I wnn very nervoun nil tho
time, and never got a good night's
nlccp. TIicro troubles Just continu
ed to pull me down until I got no
wenk and run down that when I
went to walk my legs would Just
givo right down under mo.
"Tho money I had npenl for mcdl
clnos and treatments might Just as
woll havo been thrown In tho Colum
bia Illvcr no far an tha good I got
from It, but I thought I would keep
on trying, and that In why I gave
Tanlac n trial when It came along.
Woll. nlr. boforo I hud finished my
rirst oottio or Tanlnc, I could sec
that I had struck it right at last, and
I was right, too, for Tanlnc certain
ly did Just what they nnld It would
do, nnd I am now n well, strong
man again. My stomach troubles
havo nil disappeared, und I am never
bothered with gas forming, and I
don't have thoso awful cramping
spells any more. I havo such n flno
nppetlto that I can hardly get
enough to eat, and everything I cat
ngreen with mo nil right. I havo ro
galnod all my lost weight and
strength, nnd am now getting ready
to go back to work. Now, that Is
what Tanlac has dono for mo, nnd I
think that Is saying n whola lot for

An excellent cxamplo ot how
sbecp may bo utilized for farm
ditch cleaning Is afforded on the
175-acro farm ot W. S. Humbert,
noar Phoenix, Ariz. When the farm
wan now there was an annual cost
of 3C0 for ditch cleaning. This
has been changed to an annual
profit of $800 through the employ
ment ot a sheep band that happens
to number 76 head at tho present
time. Tho sheep aro shifted from
section to section, as they clean up
tho feed, mainly weeds, Johnson
grass Hcrmuda and sour clover,
with very llttlo Btray alfalfa, though
tho ranch Is ono whereon tho main
crop Is beef, tho cnttlo betas pas
tured, on alfalfa. It has been found
that sheep will eat anything save
foxtail In head.
Somo ot tho ditches have been
untouched with the shovel for four
yoara. The sheep, mainly Hamp
sh!rc8, aro muttons and shear only
about thrco pounds twlco a year.
Lambs como about 100 per cent, a
year and usually aro sold around
8 a head. Tho only charges
ngalnst tho service performed are
thoso for shearing and for a couple
of tons of hay In midwinter. For
cold weather thero may "be found
shelter in pons that aro provided.
