Washington President Wilson was
confronted by one of the most seri
ous and perplexing developments that
have arisen In the Mexican situation.
Mexico City is on the verge of starv
ation. Gen. Obregon, Hie Carranza corn-
! mender, refused to permit an interna
) lional relief committee, composed of
wealthy members r.' the foreign col
ony, to succor the needy.
"Mexico needs no foreign aid," the
general is reported to have said.
All merchants who closed their
stores have been ordered to reopen,
under threat of punishment. Three
hundred of them, all Mexicans, have
; been Imprisoned
The people of Mex
ico City are living in terror of another
evacuation since Obregon has an
nounced that he will not prevent loot
ing or pillaging for food or money.
For the present the outcome of the
telegraphic correspondence with Gen.
Carranza will be awaited. Hitherto he
has been reported as standing by all
the activities of Gen. Obregon, whose
purpose, according to officials, seems
to be to force the lower classes to en
list in the ('arranza army or starve.

PRUDENT TREATMENT OF EWE
In Winter Keep Her on Clover or Al
falfa Hay Until After Lamb
Comes Give Some Wheat Bran.
A sensible treatment of the ewe
that lambs In winter Is to keep ber
mostly on clover or alfalfa hay until
iter her lamb comes. There will be
no need to limit the amount of hay
that she consumes after lambing and
then when her lamb takes all her
milk and wishes more, begin feeding
her a little wheat bran. For a week
bran will suffice, gradually Increasing
the amount fed. then there may be
added to It a little chopped corn or
barley and a little later some oil-meal.
A pound a day of this mixture will
keep her In good milk flow and it
must be gradually led up to for about
About the right proportions of this
mixture are 10U pounds of wheat bran,
100 pounds of chopped corn and 20
pounds of oil-meal. This with clover
or alfalfa hay will push her to a very
heavy milk flow. If she is a large
ewe she may consume more than a
pound to advantage, as much as two
pounds being consumed by some large
If this feed Is so gradually intro
duced to the ewe that her digestion is
not disturbed nor her milk flow stim
ulated too much at first, there is small
danger of overfeeding her, supposing
that the lamb is to be pushed for
