UVIost Grains Are Deficient in Protein j

kBy PROF. G. R SAMPSON. Oreson Ex

That protein element in rations for
?attening pigs will increase the di
gestibility of the other food nutrients |
lis a fact shown by repeated experi
iments. It has also been noted that
iwhen protein is added to a ration de
triment in this element, the animal will
.jgat a larger amount of food.
Since most of our farm grains are
?deficient in protein farmers should
?make a careful investigation of the
teources from which it can best be sup
plied. Alfalfa and alfalfa hay are
.excellent for breeding and growing
.?stock, but are too bulky for fattening
.purposes. If the pigs eat enough of j
them to secure the required amount of
?orotein there is not enough feed capac
tity available for the other necessary
mutrients. Bran has the same faults
".as a fattening feed. Middlings and j
?shorts may be used if the price is not j
?too much above that, of the grains fed ?

what the weather is likely to be.
"Why," the bride's husband paused.

?oohing around and picked me out."
"No." replied the bride, meditative

she'd just quit that, unprofitable oc

"Who's this Miss Mary McGee?"
"She's just Miss Mary McGee!" the
bride laughed. "I don't know how I
can explain more, if that doesn't tell
you! She's the woman down the
block who lives with the children and
they all call her Miss Mary McGee.
So every one else does! She's been

given up the hope of getting married,

"How interesting," commented the

story, "through the children that Miss

Yes, I have heard that the saloon
is the,poor man's ciub. lt is a club
with' peculiar advantages. It saves
th( poor ;;ian from ?,ay?ng laxes by
keeping him everlastingly broke, it
.shields him ?rom the responsibility
of owning his home. Jt gives him
that peace of mind known to the fel
low who don't know where he is go
ing to live next Monday, lt enables
.'<0 per cent of the poor men who
are killed in factories to be' killed,
it is a wonderful club.| It prepares
the poor man's body for typhoid and
pneumonia so completely that he is
sure to die and thus he is kept from
gambling on his chances. It is a
merciful club, for it takes a man to
the card table where he can be robbed
without being knocked down. It
cashes a poor man's check on Sat
urday night, and this is not all, for
it relieves the poor man's thirst, and
if he has no thirst this great-hearted
club gives him one. It gives him free
lunch, and after that he will have
thirst enough for everybody in town.
All the advantages of this club are
not for the man. They go to the poor
man's family too. There is little
Johnnie who wanted to go through
school and become an engineer.
There ls the little girl who wanted
to become a music teacher. But the
club knocks all that nonsense out of
their heads. It sends Johnnie to the
coal breakers and poor little Mary out
into the world where men prey on
their kind, and she falls by the way
side. Oh, it is a great club.-Ex-Con
gressman Fred Landis of Indiana.
"I do hereby order all places within
said district where intoxicating liquors

and I do further hereby order all per

and I do hereby prohibit the purchase

or otherwise disposing of. or permit

any intoxicating liquors ol" any kind

Thus did Governor Animons of Colo
rado, in a proclamation issued June 5,
curtail the personal liberty of the peo
ple living and doing business in the
northern Colorado strike district
some 520 square miles. The ruling ap
plies not only to every coal camp, but
also to the railroad lines running
through the district. Not only is- the
liberty to sell taken away, but also the
liberty to give away or to obtain pos
session of in any way any alcoholic
liquoricOny kind in any quantity.
This proclamation waa issued at the
request of Major Symmonds, in com
mand of the federal troops occupying
the district, and is to be in effect for
six months unless rescinded by the
governor. \ '

Beer, sometimes referred to aa "li
quid bread," is rathe]*, according to
the verdict of physicians and scien
tists liquid poison. Dr. Hugo Hoppe,
the famous nerve specialist of K?nigs
berg, Germany, says: "Because the
symptoms of chronic alcoholism ap
pear more slowly and are less readily
observable in the heavy beer drinker
than In the whisky drinker, the former
is more frequently met than the lat
ter. But thousands and tens of thou
sands of men who take their daily
pint are rendered stupid, silly and dis
solute by beer. Beer alcoholism in
general lowers the resistance of the
body to all diseases by injuring most
of the organs, and herein lies the
chief danger in the general wide
spread use of beer. The death from
liver diseases among brewers in Eng
land is more than double that in all
other occupations."
In Washington, D. C.. while the Na
tional Liquor Dealers' Association was
holding its meeting, a reporter said
to a bartender of that city, "I sup
pose you are not complaining of busi
ness with ibe Liquor Dealers' conven
tion in town." "Say. Ho." responded
the bartender with a stare of amaze
ment, "I guess you don't know what
convention this is. Them fellows
don't drink it. they sells it."
