DOGS A MENACE TO INDUSTRY OF RAISING SHEEP Woolgrowing Improvement and an ticur sentiment go strictly together in this country, and all publicity which will explain the situation to the pub lic is a national .service. The best grades of wool are raised In average farm flocks where sheep can be prop erly cared for and clipped. Even in Australia the best grades come from nocks of modern size,' and the ten dency there, where woolgrowing has been carried - to as high a stage of development as that shown in any country, is toward the farm flocks rather than the large sheep ranches. The greatest obstacle to woolgrow ing in this country has ' been the roaming cur, protected by the hu mane sentiment of . city people who believe that In' reasonable restrictive laws for the safeguarding of sheep some injury is done to the dog as they know him. The kind of dog that works damage to a flock of sheep is the common underfed cur. A dog breeder, writing to the Breeders'. Ga zette, urges that a heavy tax be put on mongrel dogs, especially curs kept by farmers themselves, who under feed them, give them no training, and allow them to roam at large. This breeder believes that the situation calls for an improvement in dogs. If people buy well-bred dogs, paying good prices therefor, they will take better care of them,' and the roaming sheep-kirllng "everybody's dog," the common cur that does most of the damage, win go Out of fashion. In every section where sheep are grown flocks are constantly being destroyed by dogs. Such news should be gath ered and published for the encour agement of woolgrowing industry.

URGES THAT U.S. ADOPT ENGLAND'S LABOR METHODS In- the prosocution of the war the United States has been benefitting from the experience of her allies, notably Great Britain, and with re spect to the labor problem it has been urged that this country follow some of the measures taken by Eng land, Summarizing' how the stability of labor Is maintained in Great Brit ain, the Stock Exchange firm of W. J, Wollman & Co. says: "Under the Munitions of War act strikes are illegal. The employe or employer responsible for a cession of work lays himself open to serious penalty. The shifting of labor from establishment to establishment has been regulated by a system of li censes. Competition for labor by different employers is regulated in large part by the Defense of the Realm act, which prohibits both en ticement of labor and the use of labor in an uneconomic way, such as hold ing labor for future contracts or using a skilled man on a machine which a less, skilled man could oper ate. "No official regulations exist in England as to hours of labor, except limitation on the time given to work per week by female labor. The mat ter is dealt with by means of agree ment between the unions and the em ployers' federations. The normal hours actually worked in England amount in the metal trades to about 64 to 66 per week for men, and 62 to 64 for women. ' "A Committee on Production meets every four months and considers claims for wage advances and general conditions in munition work. A bonus is then determined upon to meet with as much exactness as possi ble the Increased cost of living. fThe government requires that all people engaged on munition work shall be paid an agreed rate, which Is fixed in the last analysis by the govern ment. Other industries regulate their own wage matters,, but prac tically along the same lines. There is no parallel in England to the practice here, where a carpenter engaged on cantonment work frequently gets more than double the regular union wages." Regarding the division of essential and nonessential industries, the Woll man firm makes this observation. "Broadly speaking, any industry necessary for the successful opera tion of the army and navy is essential. In many cases a plant is doing partly essential and partly nonessential work. , In such, a case only that part of the plant, doing essential work is considered to be an essential Indus try: but where it is difficult to draw a line of division the entire plant comes practically under the control of the Ministry of Munitions. The ministry' has endeavored : to keep alive all the Industries it could, pro vided they did not interfere with war work. "To Insure continuity of supplies and enlargement of output for the winning of the war, labor in Eng land is holding steadily to Its tasks. This Is the result both , of patriotism and of war legislation. These things are. necessary in this country. The matter is illustrated In the coal In dustry here. The much higher pay which the miners are receiving has resulted in increased difficulties of production for a man will frequently stop work for the remainder of the week after three or four days labor have brought him the wage which normally required a week to earn. "So long as the miner is working on a dally basis, this trouble is likely to continue. The working basis should be extended to a week, and a system, of contracts . should be de vised so that labor will pledge itself to its task at least for several months at a time. In this way definite pro duction over such a period could be relied upon. "Such a plan could be formulated without neglecting the fact that min ing work is both hazardous and ex hausting . Indeed, this condition has already been taken into consideration; working hours are so adjusted as to take into account the health of the miners. On a weekly working basis there need be no interference with such arrangements. Nor would con tracts for serrlee have to be too long to disturb the rights of the wage earners. What is essential is the coal production be not impeded." Koty enemy aliens, Austrlans, sev eral ld to be agents of German spies and propagandists, were seized by Federal officials In New Tork city.

MORE VIGILANT WATCH OF SPY SYSTEM NEEDED The fearful disaster at Halifax, N. S., has many suggestions for our peo ple wherever located. With .conditions as they are now, it is a time- to f Orsee all kinds of mishaps and disasters, from more or less serious fires to ex plosions with terrible loss of life. . . ' A network of spies and plots extends its ramifications all through the Uni ted States. , They are working at lone lyp rairie stations where food is stor ed, as well as on the water fronts of the ports where munitions are going out, When anything tke the Halifax calamity occurs, it is one's first thought to attribute it the plot sys tem. Of course it is difficult to be lieve that the plotters could have made two vessels collide in a harbor. Yet these fellows work with such despera tion and ingenuity that it is not safe to assign any limit to their operations. They are looking everywhere for a chance to destroy munitions, food, and other war supplies, railroad bridges and terminals, mines, etc. It is a time for keeping close watch over every bit of property connected with the war. A great deal of work will have to be done guarding such property, and as much of it should be volunteer work as possible. Police forces should give first attention to protection of property having war value, even if they have to neglect some of their oth er functions. Another afterthought relates to the necessity of care in handling explo sives. Most people who have it to do become careless. They forget all about the hazard of it and some day there is a fatality. Every railroad train, ship, and truck carrying explosives should be handled with the maximum of care. ,It is not likely that all these disas ters are caused by ; spies. Some of them are due to carelessness. It is a time for rigid supervision of all such work and a great deal of Safety First talk. WITNESSES TELL KEYES' MOVEMENTS Dedham, Mass., Dec. 10 Three witnesses placed on the stand today by the prosecution in the trial of Harriet A. Varney, charged with the murder of Mrs. Pauline A. Keyes tes tified as to the movements of George H. Keyes, husband of the murdered woman, on June 19, the day she was killed. Peter J.

HOULY XMA8 TREES ' WREAXHS' " , JOHI,T lUUCK SON TheLesson of theTrenches The world has been fighting its greatest, its most exhausting war, on a basis of TEMPERANCE not Prohibition. France, the nation that has endured most steadfastly the privations and hardships of the strength-sapping sieges, is the nation most identified with the True Temperance drinks, and it is this nation which has now pointed the way to TRUE TEMPERANCE by its official recognition of their value. These beverages beer and light wines have become the reliance of Europe against the exhaustion of conflict behind as well as on the firing line. Into the Allied armies the universal conscription of France and the universal volunteer service of -Great Britain swept the sober; and the in temperate alike. After three years under Service Regulations of Tem perance but NOT of Prohibition with its True Temperance drinks as active allies of sobriety, INTEMPERANCE HAS VIRTUALLY DIS APPEARED. ; '-.. ' ... ' Here is the testimony of Robert R. McCormick, the war corre spondent of the Chicago Tribune : "In the time I was at the front I never saw a soldier of either army who in voice or manner gave any sign of intoxi cation. Off duty the British soldiers drink beer when they can get it the French,' wine. Strong drink is available in many places, but is not in demand." Democracy's defenders, have realized that unless TEMPERANCE should guard their camps CIVILIZATION MUST PERISH. And the TEMPERANCE that has been bom of the True Temperance drinks stands SENTINEL OF OUR SAFETY. ."',.-, t - The United States Brewers' Association.
