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
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
! 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

Mr. Arey gives the experience of
two herds In one of these associa

"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

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.

from the effect of Silage, but ltd«
