Upon the roof of the highest building appears at frequent intervals a melan choly man who sweeps the plain with a field glass and wig-wags despondently to the watchers of the road.

BUTTER MAKING Quality Depends Largely Upon Care Given to Milk by Farmers , Expert' 5 List of Common Causes of liad Flavor— Feed Shortage In Valley Due to Neglect to Follow Cantaloupe Crop With Corn. Now that the El Centro Cream ery is making butter, the feed ing of cows and the care of milk are matters of first importance to the farmers of the district. It is reported that some owners of dairy stock are short of proper feed because they neglected to follow their cantaloupe crop with a planting of corn. Both crops can be grown on Imperial Valley soil in the same year and farmers who failed to plant corn after picking their melons are now in a quandary to find feed for their cows. Experiments made at ag ricultural stations prove that 45 per cent, of the food value of corn is in the stalks, leaves and husks. This makes the stalks nearly as valuable as the corn. If it is put into the silo at the right time it will be excellent food and will be eaten up clean. For this reason it is good ...
