Lumber Company Orders Herd Exe

Goats are perfect marvels in clear
ing forest lands for cultivation. They
eat the brush down to thc roots, take
the "slash" from lumber operations xor

riculture in a way that no man can
do except at great expense, says the
"Minneapolis Journal. In northern Min
nesota the homesteader or settler who
has a herd of goats is the envy of all
his neighbors. But when the goats
begin to eat sawlogs their usefulness
has passed: they become a menace to
society. This i? the danger that con
fronts northern Minnesota unless
groper precautions ore tullen.
In a semiofficial report to W. T. Cox,
state forester, a district ranger tells
and interesting experience. Finding
that it was somewhat expensive to
burn the "slash" and to carry out the
orders for forest tire prevention the
company decided to obtain a band of
gcats to do the work.
The goats d>J well. They ate all the
brush, all thc slrsh. tho arass and
the shrubbery. The lumber company
But when the grass and shrubbery,
brush and slash were exhausted the
goats tackled the pulpwood and the
logs. Directors of the company de

not to cut their timber too small." war.

More Horse Power Needed in
We must have more work stock

economically. Less work stock per
acre and more per man, so that each
man can cultivate many more acres,
will come as a necessity before the

be such as to produce a prosperous
rural south. We can no more con
tinue the old methods, using single
or one horse implements, than could
toe modern manufacturer use the
old machines and methods employed
in his business 25 years ago.
