Here is a good stand of sweet clover. Sweet clover resembles alfalfa very closely until It is from 10 to 12 inches high. It has a feeding value nearly equal to alfalfa and red clover, and rarely causes bloating. Because of a slightly bitter taste, it may not be eaten freely the first few days. In a short time, however, cattle, hogs, sheep and horses consume It freely and relish It as they do other legumes. If Intended for pasture it should be sown In the spring with oats or barley, and the stock turned In while It Is young and tender. Ground Sweet Clover Sweet clover makes a wonderful feed for all kinds of live stock when ground and properly mixed with other feeds containing a larger percentage of carbohydrates. One hundred pounds of white sweet clover contains 10.9 pounds of crude protein, 38.2 pounds of carbohydrates. and .7 pounds of fat, making a ration of 1 part protein to 3.7 parts carbohydrates. Since a balanced ration should be in the ratio of 1 to 5 or 1 to 6, the sweet clover should be mixed with a carbohydrate either corn or corn fod. der. To illustrate: One hundred pounds of corn fodder contains 3.5 pounds of crude protein, 81.7 pounds of carbohydrates and 1.5 pounds of fat, making a wide ration of 1 part protein to 15.7 parts of carbohydrates. From this It will be seen that if corn fodder with the ears on Is mixed with sweet clover, the ratio will be brought down to 1 to 5 or 1 to 6, which Is very desirable. Therefore In order to make sweet clover a balanced ration, it should be mixed and ground with corn, corn fodder or any other feed rich in carbohydrates. "A mixture of this kind can be made by using a feed mill which cuts, recuts, grinds and mixes the feed. Such a combination makes an ideal feed for poultry, and is greatly relished either dry or In a mash. It Is not only fattening, but stimulates the produc- tion of eggs to a great extent. Because of the richness of this protein feed, It practically doubles the feeding value of other feeds given with it and which contains a larger percentage of carbohydrates. The best seed and the greatest quantity can be secured from the second crop the second year. Because of the tendency of sweet clover to scatter, causing loss of seed, it is very important to harvest it at the right time, using a machine adapted to the work. LEDYABD NEWS A truck hauling cabbage from Duluth to Sioux City had an accident east of town last Tuesday evening when the drivers went to sleep and drove off the road.

The enthusiasm and rivalry among the contestants was remarkable. The entries were of fine quality even though the show was not announced until most of the boys had their crop in the cribs. Peter Schumacher and his gang certainly did a nice job of decorating the main street with corn stalks. Frank Maine's corn looked good to the judges in several classes. Congratulations, Whittemore, for a fine exposition. Observed in a WhittemoTe cafe: "Please pay now. You may die tomorrow, and we don't want to chase you all over hell." During the next few days, county agents expect to reach every interested farmer in the state with the story of th economic reasons making the Agricultural Adjustment necessary, the corn-hog situation, what the corn-hog program proposes to do and the benefits which may be derived from It. * • • The most Immediate benefit to the farmer coming out of the present adjustment activity Is the loan of 45 cents a bushel available on marketable corn stored and sealed on the farm under the warehouse Law. This virtually amounts to pegging the price, since no farmer needs to sell his corn for less than 45 cents when he can get this loan on it. * • * According to H. C. Lalrd^ Boone tanker, who was one of the men call- d into Washington to help work out he details of the corn loan, a farmer s liable only for the amount of corn jpeclfled in the warehouse certificate and on which the loan is made, in other words, if the corn is given to repay the loan and the loan amounts to $450 on 1,000 bushels of corn, the farmer is required to deliver only the 1,000 bushels of corn even though the price of corn, should be lower. ' Futhermore, in case of a price rise, the farmer has his choice of paying off the loan and selling the corn himself. Loans are v made only on ear corn because of the danger of shelled corn heating. A farmer must, however, shell the corn before he delivers it to the designated loading point next summer or fall. Blanks on which farmers may apply for loans will be distributed through county agents' offices. orn-hog enterprise on a more stable, irosperous basis. • • » Loans made under the Farm cre- !it Administration have Increased luring the past month, according to Igures released by the Washington of- Ice. In September total loans made amounted to $62,324,912. In October 184,545,633 of loans were made.
