The Path the Calf Made One day through the primeval wood, A calf walked home, as good calves should; But made a trail till bent askew, A crooked trail, as all calves do. .Since then two hundred years have fled, And, I infer, the calf i.s dead: But still he left behind luh trail, And thjroby hangs my moral tale. The trail was taken up next day Jsy alouedygithatipassed that way ; Au(^jy^u,a?Wi!jO bell-wether sheep 1 VrSnau th*J trail o'er vale and Htsep, And drew the flock behind him, too, As good bell-wethers always do. And-Trom that* day o'er hill and glade Through those old woods a path was made; And many men wound in and out, And dodged ami turned and bent about And uttered words of righteous wrath UeeauH'j 'twas such a crooked path. But still they followed— do not laugh— The first migrations of that calf, And through this winding woodway stalked Because he wobbled when he walked. This forest path became a lane That bent, and turned, and turned again ; This crooked path became a r...

Alfalfa in the Territory The difference between a man and a mule is' that a man has more brains. With these brains you are supposed to control your farm conditions, grow crops profitably and market them to advantage. By using these brains, you will use your hind and stock to advan tage. As I came over the road this morning from Kavia, 1 saw many fine tracts of hill laud suitable to fruits and vege tables. I crossed several streams whose rich valleys will grow alfalfa plentifully. If you were to go to my farm to-day you would liud 800 acres "f solid alfalfa and twenty men preparing land for 1200 acres more 'to be ' ulantcd this fall if I can get the season. How deep is your soil here? (Mr. Wells — Along the I'en nington or Washita, fifty or sixty feet.) That is nearly deep enough for alf.dfa. If you will plant this land at any time after August 25, and before October 25, or between the 15th of February and the 15th of March; after it has been properly prepared, you will have no troub...

PROFIT IN FEEDING In Eastern States Feeders Figuring on Fifty. Cent Corn lii this valley, in one case, a contract made to grow Egyptian corn for 25 has resulted in profit which will pay the cost of the land. The actual cost of this corn here is about 10 or 12 cents a bushel, probably, and it is equal to Indian corn as cattle feed. But in the Middle West cattle feeders figure on paying 50 cents a bushel for corn, and expect to make money out of cattle with feed at that fig ure. There Qught to be great profit in beef with home-grown corn at 10 cents, if in the Middle West the feeders can afford to pay 50 cents. Ihe Breed er's Gazette of Chicago says on this sub ject : "Good feeding of cattle can now be bought at a price far below the values prevailing twelve months ago that some of the old hands in the trade are inclined to believe that notwithstanding the price likeiy to paevail in the corn mar ket there is more probability of profit from the feed lot this winter than last.

POSTAL MIX UP Discreditable Service in Imperial Valley flay Not Long Continue The abominable condition of the pos tal service in Imperial valley will prob ably not last long, but it is as ugly a sit uation as could be devised so long as it Lists. For instance, Sunday night there was piled up at Old Beach five full pouches of mail for Imperial. The train came us usual, but was not permitted to bring the mail, because the red tape of official circumlocution had not beon spun out to its full length. Monday more full pouches of mail were added to the pile, but twenty-eight miles from its destination, and once more the train left without, the mail. Tuesday more pouches were piled up, making a total of twenty-two full pouches for Imperial, besides several for Brawley. Under the three-times-a-week schedul i vow n- forced, the train was at last ... rmiti d to bring the mail.

Value of the Dairy Industry Dairy Commissioner Wright, of lowa, in an exhaustive article on the subject of the Dairy Industry points out the fact that there is no one factor in farm operations that lias done more to help out the farmers of the country than the dairy cow. Her importance is much greater than at first thought it would seem to be. The growth of the dairy industry in this country has been grad ual but sure, and no backward steps have been taken. "Improved and bet ter cows" have been the watchwards. lowa's State Dairy Commissioner, H. R. Wright, points out that the largest sin gle line of agriculture save one, is the dairy. Its products with a value of $590,000,000 is greater than the annual value of hogs sold in the United States, $500,000,000; it is greater than the value of all hay and forage, $484,256,846 ; it is greater than the value of all the meat cattle slaughtered, $419,455,200; it is greater than the value of all the wheat produced, $369,945,320; itisgreater th...

ALFALFA AND OVERFLOW Experience Which May Be of Value on Overflow Land Mr. W. J. Spillman, who is at the head of the forage plant work of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, gives the Breeders' Gazette an account of the be havior of alfalfa under overflow, which has some local bearings. We are con tinually learning, he says, new things about alfalfa, so that it becomes neces sary occasionally to revise our ideas. I have been one of those who have been maintaining that alfalfa should not be sown on land that is subject to overflow, because in the Western states it is well known that flooding a fit-Id of alfalfa with irrigation water will kill it. But during the past few months a number of well authenticated instances have been brought to light where alfalfa is thriving perfectly this summer, although it was flooded many feet deep last win ter. Col. R. E. Smith of Grayson county, Texas, tells me that part of his alfalfa field was covered 7 feet deep by water, and that a large amount ...

In the North BRAWLEY AND IRRIGATION DISTRICTS 4 AND 8 Schee Borthers, who have been grow ing several thousand acres of grain near Santa Monica for many years, and who are among the leading orange growers of Redlands, a few days since bought 9(50 acres in No. 5, about five miles northeast of Brawley, and already are at hand with an equipment for rushing in as large an acreage of grain as possi ble, and may farm considerably more + han their own land. It was their in tention to bring in a steam plow, but found that fuel oil would cost $1.95 laid down in Brawley, which is prohibitive. They have consequently fallen back to mule power. They expect, however, when the harvest season opens, to bring in a traction combined harvester, which will be the first one of its kind in the valley. This equipment has one boiler and three engines, which enables it to not only propel itself, but to give the thresher cylinder a speed not depend ing on the speed over the ground of the machine. It cute a sw...

Asparagus Culture While 1 at Cottchella recently I visited an asparagus field, which was entirely f re from the destructive rust that has l> en decimating the asparagus sections of the east for the last seven years. This may seem an unimportant statement, as Coachelja has only a few acres of this plant altogether, but it is fraught with great possibilities to Southern Califor nia if this virulent rust coutinues to rav age the asparagus industry elsewhere. Pr.»f. Ralph E. Smith of the State Uni vjrsity has been visiting this portion of tie State for the last ten days, investi gating the asparagus disease. He states that there is a strung probability that asparagus grown in a very dry climate will never become contaminated with the malady. Climatic conditions modify these attacks in every country; the rows of plants sometimes showing dis eaw on the side subject to moisture and exemption upon the dry side. In no case do the plants seem affected where tl c atmosphere is always dry, a...

THE MANIA FOR LAND Small Farms Well Tilled Better Than Great Ranches The press lias given a great deal of space of late to the land fraud cases. There seems to be a mania, on the part of some, to acquire title lo a greater portion of the earth. It is a trait or mania which has been growing upon Americans for some time. Take the average farmer, for instance. He starts out with a hundred or two hundred acres, and with the help of a hired man or two, manages to slightly cultivate about 10 acres, mows 20, grazes 30, and lets the rest grow to cactus and cockleburrs and other foul stuff. Then he makes the discovery that there is land adjoining his on the north. Immediately he becomes impressed with the idea that he needs that adjoin ing 100 acres to make his farm complete. He bickers and dickers with the owner till he succeeds in striking a bargain, and then he puts a mortgage upon his oi iginal plat and adds the new territory to his possessions. He cannot afford another hired man — lie i...

POULTRY IN IMPERIAL Peculiar Conditions Which flust Be Provided For The Press receives many inquiries along various lines of farming. Some of these it attempts to answer, while others it is not yet prepared to answer, for the reaso l that there are many de tails of fanning operations yet to be worked out. Many persons are seeking information regarding poultry, and taking the experience of many persons, the Press believes a splendid field exists hard in the poultry line, either as a branch of general farming, or as an in (it'pvndent business. The things which are absolutely essen tial for the poultry business everywhere are: Gravel, shade, green feed, lime, meat, grain, shelter free from draught, and protection from natural enemies. It one of these is eliminated, the poultry business must be a failure anywhere. The local poultry question, then, must be settled with these things in view. The soil of this valley contains abso lutely no gravel, save in one place where a gravel ridge ris...
