England Is Alarmed Over Shortage of Heat Imports From United States The "Food Number" of the London Times, issued June 8, 1914, in its leading editorial states that eight years-ago imports of chilled and frozen meat from the United States were valued at over $25,000,000. In 1912 imports of this product has shrunk, to $75,000. Quoting from the editorial: "This is by far the most striking change that is at present taking place in tlie food trade conditions of the world. It means that the once great export meat trade of the United States is now- practically non existent, and that unless the Amer icans take steps to increase the! Lhome production of .this staple ar?

A man was arrested, tried by jury before a justice of the peace and con victed of assault and battery. The county attorney asked that he be then sentenced. The defense asked for a new trial. The state contended that a justice of the peace has no power to grant a new trial in misde meanor cases. However, the justice ordered a new trial and the state now seeks by mandamus in the dis trict court to compel the justice to impose sentence. Judge Ruppen thal in Luray Herald.

Build Siloa Now Kansas has built nine or ten thmi biuu siios in live years., rsr.' vnsir with little corn and sorghum to out. no snos, there were over one thou sand built. Probablv fl pit silos were built in western Kan Now this year, witli a orosnect for a big corn and sorghum .crop, there seems to be ai'let up" ip, silo build ing. This is the Very time to build more s.ilos, extra silos. Build for next year, for a possible, dry year. Ten acres of corn or kafir or. cane but In to a silo this year and held - over for two years will be worth a lot of mon ey in a dry year. If next year should bring a good crop for a silo and if the farmer has only enough stock for one silo, that one could be filled again and he could feed first from the year old silage. Why not learn the lesson of storing up against a bad year? Save enough wheat now for the 1915 seeding and put up enough silage for two years. The Western Kansas farmer with one pit silo can wen afford to put down two more and buy calves and young stufl and carry over for next year. Silage is the a i , uuesi supplement lor dry summer pastures available to the Kansas farmer. The Extension Division of the Agricultural College has bulletins on cement silos and the pit silos and will send detailed suggestions for building a cheap board sito that can be built for half the cost of a stave Silo. But build or dhr silos ajui fill one for insurance and guard -against a forced sale of live stock.
