furnishing immure are announced by
the Ohio agricultural experiment illa
tion. After three yearn' eat It wa
found that not leu than 100 pound of
nitrogen wort contained In an acre of
sweet clover on May 10 In any of the
tent year. An application of 300
pound of any high analysts fertilizer,
nch an 8-12-4, would add lew than
nine pound of nitrogen to the noil.
Plow Under Clover.
These figure were developed In
tent to determine the best time of
the year to plow under sweet clover.
'It wa discovered that the plant had
the greatest nitrogen content ahout
the middle of May, May 10 being the
Dcak accumulation In the experiment.
The white iweet clover wa used In
the experiment station. Since the
value of sweet clover a a manure ha
been demonstrated aeed bonne are
handling larger and larger quantities
of the aeed, carefully tented for germi
nation qunllty and cleaned and re
cleaned to free It from weed aeed and
other foreign substances.
Time to Plow Under,
The outstanding practical lesson of
the experiment-1 that for economic
' Boll Improvement It I best to plow
i under the growth of weet clover from
April 15 to May 10, no that the full
growing season may be utilized by the
crop of corn. Sweet clover left to
stand over for the full second year
produced more organic matter, It was
! found, but not much more nitrogen
j than when plowed under May 10.
The experiment demonstrated that
an acre of sweet clover on May 10
; contained sufficient nitrogen for the
entire nitrogen requirement of 80
bushel of corn and the stalks to pro
duce It and that the sweet clover ws
of extreme value as a rotation crop to
be plowed under In the spring.

Salt Poisoning Among
Chickens Not Common
It I a well known fact that the
chicken, like other farm animal, ha
nred of a certain amount of salt In Its
ration. The fact that there have been
reported a great many Instance In
year gone by of chickens being killed
by eating feed that contained a con
siderable amount of snlt. seems to
have led to a very general belief
among poultrymen that chicken are
very easily poisoned by common table
Certain experiment have been car
ried out hich Indicate that under the
right condition chicken can tolerate
i a much tarter amount of salt than
has generally been supposed. It hns
j been shown, for example, that chick
ens elj:ht or nine weeks old could he
restricted to a ration containing as
high as 8 per cent of common suit
without serious results.
TS utterly unfair, of course.
But if a man ' smoke an oui
rageously itrong pipe, nobody ii

Best Hatching Results
From Fowls on Range
r.gi:i from birds In large pens In
the houe hatch best. P.lrds that
have large yards or free range usu
ally give better hatching results than
those kept In small pens.
Feeding U Important. Only clean,
wholesome feeds should be used. The
ration should consist of iihout ellnl
part of grain fed In the litter and
mash not too rich In nninuil protein.
While a good flow of es.'s during
the hatching season Is desirable, It Is
better to have a smaller number of
strongly fertile eggs than a larger
number of less hatchable epgs.
The mush should contain not over
20 per cent of dry milk and meat
scrap together. If one ha plenty of
lliiiid skim milk or buttermilk, It Is
equivalent approximately to 10 per
cent of dry milk or uient scraps.
War on Tuberculosis
The United State Department of
Agriculture has developed a means by
which the location of the tissue and

affected with tuberculosis may be vis

themselves. These are pictured In
their natural color. The means by
which this Is done Is by nn Ingenious
mechanical outllt, the chief feature of
which Is a control of electric lights.
It Is designed to be used as nn exhibit
or display at public gatherings.
Find Throws Light on
Early American People
Evidence has been found of three
distinct ancient American civiliza
tions, the oldest about 3,000 years. In
the Lowry ruin, southwestern Colo
rado. The excavatios were made by
a Field museum nrcheologlcal ex
petition, under Dr. Paul S. Martin.
Two large klvns, be$t described as
large, single rooms, were unearthed,
Ioctor Martin reports. One was con
structed on the ruins of the other.
Material there found, with that from
several large burial places, will be
sent to the museum for a new ball
of nrcheoioiry. The ruins are the
largest In the Southwest, and were
untouched by previous explorers. On
the walls ct the klvns were paintings
depicting the religion and domestic
habits of the people. "Great was our
surprise," writes Doctor Martin, "to
find fragments of perfect paintings
still adhering to the walls of the up
per room. They probably had not
been exposed to the light of day for
3,000 years. All were perfectly geom
etric, and were executed In black
nnd white. The Information obtained
from the lower room was of even
nwre Importance. The paintings were
In better condition, and were similar
In design to ancient pottery, repre
senting lightning, rain nnd clouds.
This Is the first time such designs
have been found on klva walls."

Crank Case Oil

the labor of putting It on.
Creosote Is excellent nnd n mixture
