These records were assembled
through a search of the patent office
to learn what. German owned inven

manufacturers under the trading
with-the-enemy-act. The regulations
of the federal trade comission just
having been issued for governing the
release by lfcense of these patents, it
is found that there - are more than
20,000 of them.
The patent office records show few
German inventions of humanitarian
aspect compared .with patents of that
sort to othe# foreigners. For in
stance, in one, department, of hun
dreds of artificial limb patents, only
one German owned could be found.

Some Timely Dont's
Don't- fail to select your seed this fall. Corn, soy beans.
velvet beans, peas and peanuts should be selected and carefully
stored. Seed may be scarce next spring.
Don't fail to plant cabbages--while the fall crop is large,
it is thought there will be a heavy demand for the spring crop.
Don't fail to make your arrangements for seed potatoes. If
Maine seed are used, have them shipped as early as safety will
permit, so as to avoid possible transportation congestion.
Don't fail to plant a few acres in wheat, and then plant
other cover crops such as clover, rye and vetch.
Don't fail to lay up stock feed for winter use. Fill the
silos, cut sorghum and peavine hay, cut lespedeza for hay and seed.
Don't sell your work stock. They are necessary for working
Don't fail to look over your live stock carefully. Select
those animals which are productive and which ought to be kept.
and sell those which are unproductive. Prepare the cull animals
for early market, and save the room and feed for good stock.
Don't sell brood sows. Since the beginning of the war the
number of swine in all countries has debreasel. In France, for
example, in the three years just before 'y 1, 1917, the
number of swine decreased 38.12 per cent; duri. ., 1915 the number
in Germany decreased 31.47 per cent. Breeding stocks are being
depleted and the situation is ahready critical. The possible in
crease from one sow is 1,002 pigs in four years, on the 'supposi
tion that all litters consist of six pigs, that all live, that half are
females, and that each gilt should farrow at one year and every
six months thereafter.
D)on't sell any heifer calves for slaughter; there is going to
be a world shortage of cattle, and this country will have to sulylll
the wvorldl's needs after the wvar.
D~on't fail to write us if you think we can be of servie.
We are interested in everything that has a tendency to. dvelo
and improve our agiculturaml prodluct ion and mark-t i ng systems.
