There were three coaches back of the tourist car and there is no doubt but that a serious wreck was avoided by the prompt action of the porter. BUY LAND. Stockmen Looking for a Tract of 50 000 Acres on the Slope. T. R. C. Crowell, until recently general superintendent of the United States Flax Fiber company, is organizing a stock company to buy 50,000 acres of land on the Missouri slope for ranching and farming purposes. He is backed by some North Dakota capitalists who are in a position to close any deal decided upon and it is probable that the organi zation will soon be concluded. The sec tion of country selected by Mr. Crowell is the cream of the Missouri slope and valuable for all purposes. There |is no richer grazing ground in the northwest and the land is equally valuable for agriculture. In fact with, the increased railroad facilities and extreme fertility of the soil and its adaptation for wheat growing the location decided upon will be too valuable for grazing. The syndicate has the Fort Stevenson military reservation in view, if it can be purchased. Important To Mothers. The manufacturers of Castora have been compelled to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to familarize public with the signature of Chas. H. Fletcher. This has been necessitated by reason of pirates counterfeiting the Castoria trade mark. This counterfeiting is a crime not only against the proprietors of Cas toria but against the growing generation. All persons should be careful to see that Castoria bears tjie signature of Chas. E. Fletcher, they would guard the health of their children. Parents, and mothers in particular, ought to carefully examine the Castoria advertisements which have been appearing in this paper, and to remem ber that the wrapper of every bottle of genuine Castoria bears tho fac-simile signature of Chas.

What Science Han Done to Over-J conic the Disease. For a number of years Dr. J. W. Connaway of the experimental station of the University of Missouri and Dr. M. Francis of the Texas experimental station. In co-operation with the Mis souri state board of agriculture, have been working on the Texas farm prob lem, says Director H. J. Waters of the Missouri university.. Already 400 blood ed cattle have been Inoculated and ex posed to Texas fever on the ranges of Texas for an entire year with a loss of less than 8 per cent. From 50 to 75 per cent of similar cattle that were sent without inoculation to adjoining ranch es at the same time died. The cause of the fever is a micro parasite which is found in the blood of INOCULATING A STEER. southern raised cattle. The natural method of communication of this germ Is by means of the Texas fever tick, shaped much like a black spider, which abounds in the south. The disease can also be induced artificially in suscepti ble cattle by hypodermic injection of Infected blood taken from southern cattle. When a susceptible animal is inoculated with infected blood, the germs thus introduced attack the red blood corpuscles aud destroy them in large numbers. This weakens the vital force of the animal and produces a large amount of broken down waste tissue, which must be eliminated from the system. Such a condition demands increased action on the part of the tissues pro ducing the red blood corpuscles and larger capacity for carrying off the waste materials through the liver, kid neys, spleen and bowels. If the system of the animal is able to successfully cope with these exigencies, it will thereafter be immune to the disease and able to resist the action of the fever germ. It appears that, so far as experiments have yet shown, the only way of pro ducing immunity is through an actual attack of the disease in as mild a form as possible from either infestation with ticks or by inoculation with infected blood. It is thought that southern raised cattle become immune while calves by repeated slight attacks of the fever, caused by tick infestation. The Missouri station first made tests with 21 head of young calves by the tick infestation method. extending, over three seasons, ik-ventl _!' the animals that had been well infested with ticks at the north were sent south and proved to be immune. But on account of the necessity of main taining quarantined pastures for using these ticks at the north and the trouble of hand feeding calves from nonimmune cows this method will probably not come into general use. Blood inoculation tests were begun at the same time and have thus far prov ed to be more practical. The supply animal may be either southern raised or one immunized arti ficially. The blood is taken from the jugular vein of the supply animal and collected In a clean vessel, stirring un til the scent is removed. The blood is then transferred to a hypodermic syringe and injected in proper quanti ties under the skin at the neck or shoulder of the animals desired to be inoculated. All instruments used in this work are thoroughly sterilized, and the blood is used while fresh. The best plan is to give a comparatively small dose at first and repeat if neces sary. Range Problems. That the carrying capacity of the common ranges is rapidly becoming re stricted to an alarming degree has long been evident to practical observers of the situation, says The Breeder's Ga zette. The causes for this condition are as evident as the results, but un forunately thus far no solution is available. The common grazing areas have been restricted by encroachments of frontier settlers. In some instances waters recently available for live stock have been made to do service in irriga tion, while reservations for parks and forest preserves have not been with out influence to intensify the difficul ties of the situation. But more seri ously important than all these is the fact that persistent close grazing has resulted in diminishing—and in some localities completely eradicating—large proportions of the annual grasses de pendent upon seeding for their repro duction that formerly covered these ranges, and more acres are now re quired for the maintenance of grazing animals than formerly, while fewer acres are available. Vegetable Scraps, The scraps of cabbage, turnip topB, etc., that are allowed to rqt on the gar den or truck patch can be converted Into money by gathering them up and feeding to the stock.
