SHORTAGE IS WORLD-WIDE
VFavorable' Time to Increase Farm
Stock, by Saving Young Aninials
and Ptrchasing Good Foundation
Farmers in all sections: of.the'toun
try are strongly urged by the United
State's Department of Agriculture to
pay more attention to the production
-of live stock, either for meat or milk.
All classes of 'farm animals are
bringing unprecedented prices, and
all indications 'point to a continued
demand,' not' only, during the bar but
for a long time afterwards. There is
believed ta be absolutely no ground
for the fear, evidently felt by niany
farmers, that live stock may be un
profitable after the war is over. The
shortage of food-producing animals is
not confined to the United States, but
is world-wide, anA would be hardly
less pronounced even on a peace basis.
The farmer who raises live stock is
not only aiding his country but is
engaging in a business -that should
be permanently profitable.
Urgent- Need for Action.
At the recent meeting in Washing
ton of 100 live-stock raisers and
dairymen, brought together by Sec
retary of Agriculture Houston and
Food Administrator Hoover to act as
a national committee on the live-stock
industry, special attention was given
to methods for bringing about a quick
and material increase in the produc
tion of meat and milk in the United
States. The urgent need of greater

been generally realized,. It Is, poi so
well understood, that larger numbet-s
of all kinds of live stock on Ameriean
farms are requisite for the period fol.
lowing they war, licuse the European
countries will be forced to continue to
import a large pprtrof their meat stp
plies long after peace is restored. A
large export trade in grade mares,
cows, ewes, and sows is expected, as
only by such means can Europe re
store here commercial flocks to their
former food-producing capacity. Ever'
without a nexport trade in meats or
live stock, the home demand will be
sufficient to insure profitable prices
for live-stock products. This fact was
strongly in evidence before the war,
but its significance has been obscured
by the unusual prices of the last two
Supply Dependent on Small -Farms.
One of the main points urged upon
the' attention o fthe Government au
thorities by the live-stock committee
was the dependence upon the small
farms for present and future increas
ed live-stock production. Farmers in
all parts of the country can safely
make live-stock raising one of their
main sources of income. This is true
not only because of assured good
'prices in the future, but because a
strong reliance upon one or more
kinds of live stock gives a better bal
ance an dgreater economy to..the en
tire farm business.. The cotton apd
wheat growing States will no clou'bt
continue to give these crops an im
portant place as depen hble sources
of rash income. They can, however,

practicing crop rotations-that include
feed crops for live stock. It is true
that crop. yields can be maintained
by the use of commercial fertilizers,
but the fertility of the soil can gen
erally be kept up more cheaply by
applying manure produced on the
farm or by growing crops to be graz
ed off by cattle, sheep, or hogs. Fur
thermore, many lands that will not
produce heavy crops of grain will
grow good crops for grazing, thus
saving labor of harvesting and at
the same time improving the soil and
realizing returns from the growth
and fattening of the live stock.

It can safely be said that the most
successful farmers of the future in

who study the production of one or
more classes of meat or dairy stock.

GEN. SMUTS SEES
Says Germany Is l.osing Steadily
in .Principal Theater of
Cardiff, Wales, Oct. 29.--Speaking
in regard to the Italian situation here
today, Gen. Smuts, the former South
African comnander, said:
' "Germany sees America rushing in
with tremendous weight. Therefore,
she is trying to do:lge the issue and
catch some advantage in a minor
theater of war. It will not help her.
It will only prolong the war a few
months. The issue is no longer in
"The German offensive against
Italy is A repetition of the history of
previous autumns. You remember
the first autumn of the war when
Germany crushed Serbia? She had
to offer her people some encourage
ment to go through the winter on,
and as with Salome and John the
Baptist, she brought the head of Ser
bia on a platter. In the autumn of
1916 she brought Rumania's head on
a platter and now we see the on
slaught against Italy.
"Italy's position is serious, but not
discouraging. Italy already knows
that the Allies will stand by her to
the end. We shall not see her head
on a platter. I shall not be sur
prised to see this boomerang come
back on the Germans. The war was
not decided in Serbia nor Rumania,
and will not be decided in Italy.

war the enemy is going steadily
downward and the German has been
beaten by the French and British

WINTERI ROUGHA GE FOR SOWS
Economical Rations Made Up- Largely
of Home-Grown Feeds.
During the winter the brood sows
should be maintained as cheaply as
possible, but at the same time they
must be properly fed in order to far
row a large number of healthy well
growvn pigs in the spring. Best re
sults are obtained when suflicie'nt
food is given to produce daily gains
on the sows, of one-half or three
fourths cf a p~ound. To (do this the
grain feed must be limited, and dIi
'lutedl with sonme roughage, for unless
the ration has suflicient bulk, the
sows will become constipiated and
hungry, due to the undistended con
dition of the dligestive tract. Legume
