Cotton Stalks for Stock Food.
It is not generally known that dry
cotton stalks when ground will make
a good, rich food for stock, approximately
equal to the bav from mixed meadow
grasses. During the winter several dry
cotton stalks were pulled from the field
at the N. C. Experiment Station at-4tal
eigh. The stalks were dry, and still had
the burrs, and some lew leaves adhering
A few roots were also pulled up with the
stalks. The whole; was ground together,
and, on analysis, yielded 12.7 7 per cent,
of moisture, 7.75 of ash.27of ether ex
tract, 7.31 of albuminoids, 42. 3o of nitro
gen free extract, 27,55 of crude fibre
The nutritive ratio by analysis (not di
trestibilitv) was 1 to 10. 6. A Ins is approx
imately the same as the hay from mixed
meadow grasses, which gives a digestible
ratio of 1 to 12.2. Jso opportunity has
been given to test the digestibility of cot
ton stalks bv actual trial with stock
Should it prove of good digestibility, and
the cost of pulling: the old stalks and
grinding them be not too great, cotton
stalks may yet become useful adjuncts
in cattle feeding. The weight of the old
stalks per acre from the rich eotton
lands of the East is not inconsiderable.

old fashioned dash churn or something of
he kind and churn violently for fifteen
minutes. When cool the emulsion will

this condition it will keep for any length
of time. When wanted for use dilute
the jelly, using nine parts by measure of
soft water and one part jelly. Ihe di

upon the infested plants with a broom
or w isp of twigs. It is harmless to the
