Mead A Company.) Robert Bruce R OBERT BRUCE, ofj; Scotland—fl man without ■ home, a king with out a throne, a ruler without subjects —lay hidden In a tumble-down hut one day early in the Fourteenth cen tury, while the soldiers of King Ed ward I of England scoured the sur rounding country under orders to cap : ture the fugitive monarch dead or aMve. As the luckless Bruce gased Idly about him he noticed a spider swinging from a strand of web that It ! was trying .to affix to Uie opposite wall. Six times the spider swung and failed. The king grew Interested. He had been half minded to give up his own useless struggle agalust England's mighty power. But, noting the m sect's perseverance, he took heart. He resolved that If the spider should win In Us task of fixing the web to the op posite wall, he himself would once more attempt to resist England's In vaslon. On the seventh trial the spider succeeded : and Bruce, true to his pledge, set forth to renew his own hopeless warfare. North Britain, the country later known as Scotland, had never wholly been conquered In the Roman Inva sion. Its inhabitants, savages known as Piets and Scots, had for centuries resisted all attempts to crush them as other savage tribes had been crushed. But at last Scotland had fallen under English influence and had become a mere Anglo-Norman feudal monarchy. A question arose in 1202 as to suc cession to the throne. Edward I, king of England, was asked to decide the matter; and, through his influence, a poppet of his own, John Baliol. was chosen. This strengthened England's power In Scotland, and the unhappy northern kingdom was almost- passive under the English yoke. Baliol, urged on by malcontents, sought alliance with France and took up arras «gains» England, but Edward 'speedily cap tured 1dm, routed Ids armies and took Edinburgh and- other Scotch strong holds. Then, In the hour of Scotland's sorest need, when all her nobles were cringing at Edward's feet, a hero arose—a man of the people, William Wallace. Wallace raised a rabble of peasants and townsfolk, molded them a- w e ll train e d , org anized band, and In 1297 captured town after town from the English. The nobles held aloof from him. but the common peo ple followed him devotedly. Edward sent a strong army to put Wallace duivn, deeming the revolt too petty for his own personal attention. Wallace, with a force many thousands inferior to the Invaders, met this English army near Stirling. Wallace's men were light-*rmed and ill-equipped and had less than 200 horses In all. The well-mounted Eng lish, in their heavy armor, looked for an easy victory. But, after a fierce battle, Wallace's peasants put them to (light It was the first time In history that a disciplined feudal srmy was routed by a force recruited from the plain people. It was the beginning of the end. Having repulsed the English. Wal lace set to work reorganizing Scotland and reviving her shattered commerce. Pressing his conquests he even In vaded the north of England, thus car rying the war Into the enemy's coun try. But, alarmed at the extent of the revolution, Edward sent a new army pf 90,000 men against him. The nobles refused to help Wallace and his re sources were only such ns he himself could muster. Yet he won two bat tit against the stronger Invader be fore the superior force overwhelmed and crushed his little army. Wallace was captured, sent, to Ix>ndon and there, after a mock trial, the gallant patriot was hanged as à traitor. Edward, as an example to future revolutionists, devastated Scotland. In flicting terrible penalty for England's former defeats. But the result was exactly opposite to what he bad planned. A nobleman. Lord Robert de Bruce (or Robert Bruce) revolted, drawing about him the Scottish no bility. He was crowned King of Scot land in 1306. Edward at once at tacked him. driving him from the throne, and again ravaging the strick en country. It was during this period that Bruce took his life lesson from the spider In the but whither be had fled for refuge. Almost at once, upon Bruce's re solve to try once more to save Scot land. the turn of fortune came. Ed ward I died and was succeeded bv hl« weak, dissolute son. Edward II. Tak ing advantage of the latter's Indolence, Bruce raised a strong army, and by 1313 had won back nearly all of Scot land. The next year the last and most decisive battle of the war was fought at Bannockburn (Bannock Creek). Bruce, by better knowledge of the ntershy, uneven ground and by su perior generalship, won the day. His Scottish spearmen fought on foot io a circular formation somewhat like the modern military "square,*' and through this circle of steel the English knights could not break. Again it waa proven that the flower of chivalry could make no headway against well-generaled private soldiers. The English were utterly routed. Never again, though many other con fllcU arose, did England wholly sub due Scotland. At last, in 1668, the two nations bn came one. under James I of England, who chanced to be natural heir to both 1 ts COW TESTING PAYS LARGE DIVIDENDS ! tlona. One herd contained 21 cows, while the other had only 9, yet the difference in profit over feed coat, was ««6* $5.01 In favor of the larger herd, The owner milked, fed. and.tended 12 cows the greater part of a year for $5.01. The net receipts were $667.59 for the larger herd as compared with $662.58 for the small herd. ^Iwovn er of the smaller herd had better cows and fed them In proportion to their production. _ _there ia a gradual Improvemeut in all herds where the testing work Is being carried on, states Mr. Arey. The production cost shows a decerase with a corresponding Increase In ac tual production. This, he finds, Is due to the adoption of better feeding methods and the elimination of the Records kept-toy cow-tenting associ ations In North Carolina pay large dividends when the results are studied and applied to the ownar's herd, states J. A. Arey, dairy extension spe cialist at the North Carolina State college. Mr. Arey gives the experience of two herds In one of these associa tow producing cows. "There has been an average of 20 cows sold each month from the herds In the five cow-testing associations In the state," says Mr. Arey, "and this elimination will continue until all un profitable cows have been sold or slaughtered. "Twenty-five cows In the Wake-Dur ham association were found to be un profitable and were either sold or butchered. In *the Forsyth-Davle as sociation seven cows were sold for beef, and other associations report numbers ranging from three to seven teen as being sold or slaughtered. "A standard dairy ration recom mended by the dairy extension, impe rialists is being used In all herds, and records show that the average produc In all tion and cost Is very dations.'' _ 1, \ Train Calf by Gentle Treatment at All Times Make the calf like to be handled. This can hest be acc omplished by gen tle treatment at all times. Teach the calf to lead by handling it gently. One good way to do this training is to use a small stick. The calf should walk 00 the right side of you #nd should be trained to mind thè stick. Teach the calf to stand quickly In one position. Then it should be trained to stund with Ü», weight even ly distributed on all four legs, which should be squarely placed. The head should be held up and to the front and the back straight and firm. Because the calf which flinches, pulls, kicks. Is easily frightened, or stands In a position that makes Ita back sway, or Its rump appear faulty does not readily catch the eye of the judge, the calf should become accus tomed to straqge-people, sights, and sounds. A little training every day is much better than a half day of it once each month. Large Amount of Silage Proves Harmful to Bui Many farmers allow the hull I« run with the herd and fionsequently pay no particular attention to hls feed. Whera silage forms a pari of the ration this Is to he discouraged. •It has been proved that a liberal amount of silage, sir- pound\ or over, promotes sterility in the bull. From the data gathered In numerous experi ments It would seem that even i small allowance will reduce his vl : tailty. - With farmers learning to hav* milch cows freshen in the fall It would appear that silage can be wholly omitted from the ration for the bull.
