Then oh May 7, Secretary Alger said
that he was "looking for the surrender
of the Filipinos daily." And on May 8,
the War Department put thiB upon its
bulletin-boaid:
Gen. OtiB cables: "Signs of insur

At intervals during the next fifteen
days similar bulletins—"aspect "Of

Scrub Stock.
Scrub stock il not alwayB bred that
way. The best and bluest blood known
to breeders may be made to bring forth
progeny of the scrub order by careless
ness on the part of the feeder.
The old saying that well fed is half
bred" is' not merely a saying. It is.
founded on the truth and as a state
ment is quite exact. The veriest -crub
may be made quite respectable by
proper feeding, but it can never be
made a'purebred animal. It has not in
it the quality to assimilate feed and put
it to good use that is Inherited by the
pure bred animal and .the feed given to
it will never produce the results that
would have been Bhown if the care and
skill that lies behind the purebred
beast had had some part in making it
up,
There Is no excuse for scrub stock
whether bred or made by carelessness.
Scrubby horses or cattle mark the owner
as being at once non-progressive and ill
fitted for breeding or feeding. A mtn
may not be financially able to stock his
farm with pure-bred stock, but even
the poorest farmer may command the
services of good sires up.l in this way
may secure tin benuiits. of go jj blood.

qualities of the brewl it has been gral-
ed up with.
Happily, the da of brod scrubs is
about past. Very-few genuine "penny
royal" steers are to be found now, and
each year they become fewer. The
scrub made so by lack of care and
careless feeding is still too much in evi
dence. It will not disappear as long as
corn stover is left in the field for cattle
to forage on during the winter. No
profit can result from any kind of
scrubs, ana the man who allows them
to remain on his farm and continue t«
be scrubs will be the one who is reaily
to testify that there is no chance lor
