How Kans&n Curea Alfalfa.
An interesting method of curing
allalfa hay is that nsed by Hon. J. W
Berry of Jewell, Kan., According to
Prof. Ten Eyck of the Kansas ai?rl
cultural college, Mr. Barry's plan Ik
to cut alfalfa as soon as the dew is
off in the' morning, rake it green and
haul it in the same day that if is out,
tte only precaution being that there
be no moisture on the hay other than
that contained in the green stems and
leaves. He stores the hay in large
corncribs, the bottoms of which are
elevated several ieet above the ground
with more or less open spaces, and the
sides of the crib are also open. The
cribs are large enough to store a sin
gle cutting of alalfa from 11 acres of
ground and only cover the bottom of
the cribs to a depth of 4 'or 0 feet
The hay is spread over the whole crib
bottom in an even layer and not
trampled, bat left light and loose as
it is thrown in. The second enring
of alfalfa is placed above the first, and
the third above the seoond, nnti) the
orib is full to the top. For three
seasons now Mr. Berry has put np the
hay from this field in the manner
described above and each Winter he
has baled the hay and sold it at an
average of f 3 per ton above the mar
ket price of good alfalfa bay. The
hgy stored aud enred in this way has
been greener in color and of better
quality than alfalfa fPt up by the
Our experiment stations have not
given ns as much information on hay
curing as they should. There are
several methods of hay making and
each is adapted to certain conditions.
The problem in the humid region is a
knotty one. Alaflfa hay has been pnt
up too gteen in Texas and the repu-'
ttion of it has suffered accordingly.
Here is an excellent field for inves

THE ' MAIL ORDER OCTOPUS.
Quit Feeding an Organization That
Hinders Your Town's Growth.
There's a new Octopus, with a big O.
It Is being fed and fattened by the
farmers and the residents of small
towns and the lesser cities throughout
the United States. Without being con
scious of the fact these well intentlon-
eU people are pouring fodder Into
great, hulking, mastodonlc octopus that
Is reaching out Its tentacles to seize
and swallow thousunds of local enter
Every day In the year this octopus
eats up some country town or small
city merchant, body and breeches. Ev
ery day It devours some local manufac
turing Industry. And every day the
country people ami the citizens of the
small towns and cities are sending Id
tnelr tidbits to help fatten this octopus.
It Is like handing peanuts to the ele

much good, but when so many are

This Is the mall order octopus.
Let us consider briefly what the mall
order octopus eats. First be cats your
dollar. You may now and then get bar
gains by mall, but If you would look
around at borne you might find the
same things for sale at the same price.
The octopus eats up your dollar and
your neighbor's dollar, aud so on, and
pretty soon he has swallowed the
whole store of your neighbor in town,
who closes up and goes out of busi
ness. - , .
But that Is ouly a bite for this octo
pus. When the storekeeper goes out of
business be goes out of town goes to
some town where people trade at
home. lie takes with him his family
and his clerks perhaps. That decreases
the population of your town. Thus the
octopus eats a slice out of your popula
tion. Perhaps five yeara ago your town
had a thousand people. Now It may
hove fallen off to half that number.
You own lota there or you own farm
land near by. Your lota and land are
not worth so much in or near a town
of 500 as they were In or near a town
of 1.000. Thus the octopus eats off a
considerable slice of the value of your

If your town kept on growing. It eats
up your children's opportunities to get
a good education. It eats away tbelr
and your social privileges by reducing
the population. If your town remains
stationary or goes backward, you are
not going to have an opera house, or a
public library, or a lecture course, of
young people's club not very soon;
never If you keep oo handing peanuts
to the octopus.
This octopus Is only about a doaen
years old, bat It as of adult slse, and
yet It Is still growing, most abnormal
ly, enriching Itself .at the expense of
your community. If sll of you In
your own community would quit feed
ing this octopus and feed your local
enterprises, yoor town would take a
forward movement and you would be
feeding yourselves In ths end.
