DESTRUCTION OF S0APWEED
This Valuable Wostorn Rango
roed Now Being Utilized
Soanwecd for veara naat has
been the salvation of the cowmen.
Many of our ratfehmen have
numerous sections with absolutely
nothing on it but soapweed. The
country is very arid, and were it
not fqr the browsing obtained on
this land the utilization of tho
rest of the great areas for the
production of stock would be
utterly impossible, and a valuable
industry in promotion of wealth
and food for the country would
be seriously crippled. Vast areas
of government land have this
soapweed growing. Thisland'has
been used by cattlemen from
time immemorial, and since 'the
recent demonstration of its value
as a stock food when cut up and
mixed with other foods, its
protection is vitally necessary.
ReceDtlv a well know concern
of St. Louis which manufactures
fibre and sells a great deal of its
output at this time to the govern
ment, has secured a permit to
cut this fibre from government
land. Bear grass, soapweed and
other kindred plants belonging
to the Yucca ' family can be
utilized for this fibre. There are
also many other things that can
be used to make fibre, but this
company lias been turning its
attention to the Yucca plants, and
their permit covers the cutting
of as much as 6000 acres. In this
country the soapweed furnishes
what they want and they are
playing havoc with the range.
The attention of the Panhandle
& Southwestern Stockmen's asso
ciation has been called to what
might be a serious calamity were
it continued. and through
Senators A. B. Fall, A. A. Jones
and Congressman W. B. Walton,
of New Mexico, an appeal has
been made to the Interior Depart
ment at Washington to stop giv
ing such permits, as the govern
ment gets nothing for it.
While the cowman of this state
is not asking the government to
give him any special favors.it is
quite apparent that were it not
for the fact that cattlemen have
come out on the dry western
wastes and managed to tide their
herds through seasons of drouth
by use of these plants, the sale
of thousands of acres of dry land
by the government or their lease
would never have been practical.
We think Uncle Sam will realize
that it is really protecting his
own interest when he prevents
the destruction of this valuable
food plant for use as a fibre
when other things can take its

THE UNIVERSAL CAIÍ
WHEN jou comparo the low price
of Ford cars with the prices of
farm produce, farm stock and
everything else on the market,
the great value of tlio Ford car
can he fairly estimated. The
price of the Ford Touring Car
is only $520.G5 f. ó. b. Lordsburg the new
price. ... It is the greatest value, not. only
among motor cars, but in tho whole run of
articles grown and manufactured. Think of a
five-passenger motor car with the reputation for
Bervice, durability and economy that's behind
the Ford car, selling for $520.65! Wo urge pros
pective purchasers to give their orders early.
