statistician and one of the prlc experts
of the Cnlon Stock Yards Company, to

that the high prices for beef will con

"The only hope for relief," says Mr.
Uorine, "lies with the farmers of the
coin belt, who with Improved methods
of farming and with alfalfa may be
ablo to produce beef cattle profitably
"Thu present situation Is easily
explained. The drought of 10U9 and
1910 ruined the ranges In the South
west, Mexico and Cunada. This rs
duccd the already deficient supply of
breeding and young stock and caused
a general scarcity of cattle. The ove.--marketlng
of thin steers In 1010 was
followed by ihe overmarketlng of fat
cattle of nil ages from the corn belt
."The farmers saved fewer cal"es md
the consequence Is thnt nt the present
time there l very little young stock
lu the country, and wo urn rapidly
consuming what there Is. The runges
thrtitightout the world nro being cut
up Into small farms and tho specializa
tion lu ciops makes the raising of
cattle of secondary Importance. 1 look
for n beef famine In this country dur
ing the next five or ten yenrs. There
nre no moro ranges and no place to
raise the stock profitably."

not only that Hecker had called up
Hose at their house, that Hecker had
