WHY ALFALFA GROWS POPULAR
"Greatest Forage crop in America/'
Say* a well Known hay man.
"There is no forage crop growii in
America at the present day equal to
that of alfalfa," said J. T. Woolsey,
of the firm of Woolsey-Stahl to a re-
porter for- the Telegram this morn-
ing. "This is probably due to the
fact that in recent years government
experimental stations have proven
its merit, and feeders all over the
country are now using it,, until the
demand exceeds the supply."
This statement was made by Mr.
Woolsey in answer to a question by
the reporter as to what he attributed
the increased demand for this new
forage, and why it should grow so
rapidly in favor with the stockmen's
and dairymen's intere&ts of the
country. Mr. Woolsey is competent
to talk on this subject, since he is a
member of the firm that likely
handles the largest amount of alfalfa
hay of any firm in this part of the
country. Woolsey-Stahl company
has recently erected a large alfalfa
meal mill at the corner of Second
and Nebraska avenue, Kansas City,
Kansas. It is the intention of the
operators of the mill to place the hay
in convenient packages for transpor-
tation to any part of the country,
and thus to bring it within the reach
of many dairymen and stockmen
who heretofore have been prevented
from using it, owing to high freight
rates. As prepared by the mill, the
hay will be in the best form for as-
similation and digestion by the
animal. It is the feeding value of
alfalfa that regulates its price on
the open market, ands today it sells
for more than the 'best timothy.
When made into various prepared
products its nutritive value is prac-
tically doubled, owing to the absence
iof any waste matter whatever. Mr.
Woolsey says its superior value for
finishing eff fat stock is well known
because of the sleek, glossy coat it
imparts to the animal.
Mr. Woolsey was asked as to the
value of alfalfa as a milk producer
and in what way the prepared food
Would increase its feeding value.
In reply he stated:
'As a milk producer nothing need
be said. Dairymen who have tried
it are its most enthusiastic support-
ers, and their continued use of al-
falfa products is the strongest re-
commendation it could have. Even
those who are somewhat Skeptical,
need but to give it a fair trial to be-
come thoroughly .convinced of its
"In addition to its being a splen-
did feed for the dairy and fattening
stock, it has no superior and few
equals as a poultry foqd. This is a
fact not commonly known. In feed-
ing poultry it should be made into a
warm mash, especially in the winter
months, and fed with table scraps,
or, if by itself, thrown into straw
where the fowls will be required to
scratch to secure the feed. This
is especially necessary if the fowls
are confined closely.
Another reason for its rapid
progress is that a scientific analysis
shows it to be richer in feeding value
than oats, barley, rye, wheat, shelled
corn or wheat bran, being rioher in
protein contents than any of the
above well known feed products.
"Alfalfa meal, chops and shred-
ded alfalfa have the seal of approval
of the United States department of
agriculture and every state experi-
mental station where an analysis
has been made."
The Woolsey-Stahl Co. will be
pleased to correspo d with dairy-
men, stockmen, farmers and hay-
men who may wish full and complete
information on the subjeQt of alfalfa
and its kindred products.—Drovers

My threshing machine is now in
order and I am ready to begin
threshing this year'* kaffir and

fhy you should grow a crop and let
it go to waste. Have your kaffir
and maize thrashed and receive the
fancy price which it will bring you
on the market. I will suggest that
those who wish to have their grain
thrashed will cut the stalk ás close

Stimulation Without Irritation.
In cases of stomach and liver
trouble the proper, treatment is to
stimulate these organs without ir-
ritating them. Orino Laxative
Fruit Syrup aids digestion and stim-
ulates the liver and bowels without
irritating these organs like pills or
ordinary cathartics. It does not
nauseate or gripe and is mild and
pleasant to take.—T. M. Coulson.
We can now furnish the public
with fresh milks, cream and butter

Yours for fair treatment,
