What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Thomas Shaw writing in the Moirtaint Farmer gives the following valuable advice concerning the growing of alfalfa for hay: The advice given more commonly to farmers who grow alfalfa for any tve in dry areas ia to put it in rows about 38 to 42 inches apart and to cultivate it like corn. The reasons assigned for growing it thus are, that it is a sure Icrop. when grown thus and that it will yield larger tonnage per acre. This may hold true of it where the conditions are N'ery- hard but in our experience in Da- dota and Montana it has not held true when the alfalfa has been grown feu hay. We have gotten larger yields on the average from alfalfa grown by tilt methods that we follow than when grown in rows widely spaced. The dif- ference has been marked in favor ut our methcds. NVhat is meant by our methods! I will try and make this plain. We he gin by putting not less than 10 tons o farm yard Manure on each acre of lam if we can get it. We apply this manor - before we begin to prepare the land fie alfalfa.
