BURBANK AND COST OF LIVING !

I. other Hnrbank ii Duncan Ii. McKiu-
lay 's solution nt' the high cost ot liv

"All the ecwiomists agree," he said,
tlmt the chief item is the high price
ot meats. Ami thoy all agree that the
meats me high beuuuso the Western

that iisel to grow cuttle and sheep so
cheaply me now turned into farms.
Hiii bank lias taken cactus, that old
prickly ciirkO of tlio phi ins that used to
grow spikes from one to three incheh
long and made it so smooth that y.m
can rub your face with it as you woulci
with a glove. And that is whore th
Milue conies in. h!ory wince of that
cactut is just as good for cattle, sheep
hogs ind chickens as alfalfa.
N'ow, cactus grows naturally all ov

sand, and takes its sustenance from
the nil. Theto ale 2,5U0,UU0 acres oi
land in the luter-mciintaiu states own

in tho world,
"ThU is what I saw ut Hurbank'h
ulnce a week ai;o last Sunday: One
single acre on which there were ""Til!
tons o that cactus, mid the plants were

the price of entile and sheep would go
if that much alfalfa could be raised to
