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 i? 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 sorghun) 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 decreased. In France, for
example, in the three years just before January 1, 1917, the
number of swine decreased 38.12 per cent; during 1915 the number
in Germany decreased 31.47 per cent. Breeding stocks are being
depleted and the situation is aheady 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.
Don't sell any heifer calves for slaughter; there is going to
be a world shortage of cattle, and this country will have to supply
the wvorld's needs after the war.
Don't fail to write us if you think we can be of service.
We are in erestedl in everything that has a tendency to develop
and impro e our agricultural production and marketing systems.

RAILROADS FACE GREATEST
TASK IN, THEIR HISTORY
During the coming winter, the rail
roads of tWe United States will face
the greatest transportation problem
in their history.
The war has created demands that
have increased the railroads' burden
1virtually over night by millions of
tons of freight..
What Increased Railroad Service
Some conception of what this in
crease means may be gleaned from
the fact that the additional service
which is being demanded of the rail
roads thip year, is equivalent to car
rying 120 billion tons of freigth one
mile. This increas6 alone is more
than the combined freight traffic for
one year of Great Britaii, France,
Austria, Russia and Germany.
- Moreover, the railroads will have to
hantdle it with facilities that, frankly
speaking, are inadequate. Cars, loco
motives, terminals and all the other
equipment and track space that is
needed to handle the increased freight
trafic that a war almost simultan
eously produces, cannot be built over
To make the situation more diffi
cult, practically all the steel which
can be spared for the construction of
locomotives and cars has been appro
priated for use abroad either by the
United States or by our Allies. As
a result, the railroads of the United
States must face their task with
practically no' increase in equipment.
Despite conditions, the railroad
army is not pessimistic. It is, on the
contrary, still on tip toe. for its fight
to control the tremendous traffic that
has.'been so suddenly thrust upon it.
But all railroad men now recognize
that to keep pace with the ever in
creasing transportation demands of
the country, the railroads will not
only have . to increase their own ef
forts, but they must count upon the
shippers, the consignees and the pub
lic as a whole to increase the co-ope
ration which they have so generously
given the .railroads since the United
States entered the war.
Some Examples of Intensive Loading
Perhaps the best way to show the
value of the shippers' co-operation is
to cite a few concrete examples of
what has been accomplished by in

Cotton Shippers Saving Cars.
Cotton, which was formerly moved
in units of 50 bales, now moves only

trade unit in this one commodity
alone has produced a saving of any.

Great Opportunities Still Left.
These are real accomplishments,
but the opportunity for others to doC
likowise still exists.
D~uring the entire period of the war,
food, munitions andl material must be
kept nioving steadily to the sea
boardls. Lumber must be kept mov
ing to the ship yards. Meni must be
kept moving to the cantonments,
aviation fields an-l other training
camps, and all of these movements,
in so far as is p)ossible, must - be
made without serious interference
with the regular commercial traffle
of the country.
Railroads Must Increase Their Own
To do this, the railroads must in
crease their own efficiency. They
cannot rely altogether on the things
which the shippers may do.
As Chairman of the Railroads' War
Bo-rd, I feel that I can state that this
increase in efficiency will be accom
plished, as to (late there has been no
disposition on the part of any mem
ber of the railroad army, from track

thing but give his best to the work
that is so essential to our winning

The co-operation that we ask from
the general public is harder to ex
plain. What we need above all is a
thorough understanding of the nag
nitude of The transportation problem
and the necessity for public co-opera
tion in the solution of it.
Why Passenger Trains Were Elimi
We want the public to understand
that passenger trains have been elim
inated for one purpose only--to save
equipment, man power, And track
space that is absolutely needed to
handle the tremendous increase in
freight transportation that the war
We want the public to understand,
too, that every effoit that the indi
vidual family makes- in any form of
conservation will hel) in the solution
of the transportation problem, as well
as the other economic war problems
of the United States.
By using food and fuel economical
ly, by refraining from the use of
things that are unnecessary for a
1healthy existence, by foregoing luxu
ries which demand rail transporta
tion, and by supporting the movement
against the use of freight cars for
hauling non-essentials, the people as
a whole will lessen the burden of the
railro-ids and thereby make it pos
sible for them to render more and
better transportation service for the
troops, munitions of war, food, fuel
and all the other commodities that
must be properly distributed both in
our own country and in the countries
of our Allies, if we are to carry this
war to a successful conclusion.

On one of the long hauls, 8,000 men

the Western Coast to a point on the
Eastern Coast, a distance of 3,700
miles in a little less than a week.
The men travelled in sixteen sections,
each section comprising 12 tourist
cars and 2 baggage cars.
In order to centralize the furnish

convenient to the government and to
