NO FIGS FROM THISTLES. The Germans are a hard-headed sound-thinking race of people. It is not believed that the "German-Ameri cans" wo mean American citizens pf German blood who aro first for their country, America, but have a very great sympathy (and it is right that they should have it) for the Fatherland. can he delui'ed into the idea that they are serving either their own country or the h atherlar.d by their support of the Republican candidate. Every thinking man knows that if Mr. Hughes is elected President, Mr, itoosevelt ts going to exercise a very great influence over him. and that through his domination influence over a large portion of the Hughes supporter Koosovelt will have a commanding in iluence in a Republican administration at Washington. The undisguised and almost official relation that Senator Iodge and Con gressman Gardner of Massachusetts and some other leaders and managers of the Republican party have with Great liritain certainly gives the German-Americans no hope of favoring in fluence from this powerful Republican group. The house of Morgan with its deep nd wile ramifications in Wall Street, the very head and front of B'g business, is sure of an influential voice in Re publican councils. It is the official representative in this country of the AlbVs and in that capacity is acting largely as the instrument and adjunct of Lombard street. London. This is the third powerful if not dominating influence which must be overcome by the "German-American influence." Patriotism, justice and good bense show no good reason for "German American" support of the Republican party, THE STOCKMAN. A team of horses spends yrnrs In faithful work. Ilnch horse Is entitle.

The failure of meat production throughout the world to keep abreast of growth In population nnd Increase In meat consumption Is one of the Impor taut reasons for the high cost of meat In the United States, according to part I of an exhaustive report on the meat fdttiatlmi In this country, prepared by specialists of the federal depnittuciit of agriculture. Other factors of Im portance In bringing about Increased prices. It Is stated, aro Increased cost of raising cattle nnd diminished pur chasing power of the money unit. It Is not expected Hint a radical change In the meat situation will tic brought about In the United Slntes In the npar future largely bei'ntie this country Is participating In n worldwide uioipirctit In regard to meat production It l bclleed, linnet cr, that there "ill ben gradual growth and expansion In the world's production of lieef. mutton and pork. It cnmiot bo predicted whether this movement will equal the rate of Increase of the ment eating population. In America this gradual expansion appears to hare licsuu nlieady lie tween IP07 nnd 1913 there was a mark ed decline In the number of cattle In Personal Stationery Should be Engraved or Embossed Dowadays.

The estimated number on farms nnd ranges on Jan. 1. 1010, 01,411,000, Is, however, still much below the corresponding fig ures for 10O7-72.KH.00O With the ex ception of temiiorary checks due to losses from hog cholera there hag been lu recent years a persistent Increase In the production of aitlne. On .Inn. I. 1910, the number In the country was estimated at tW.OOO.OOO us coinpaied with M.200.000 In April, 1010. On the other baud, the number Of sheep de cllned during this period from 5L'..W),. 000 In 1010 to )!),200,000 In 1010. As the decrease, however. Is not sullicient to offset the Increase In cattle nnd swine, It may be said that the total production of meat In the United States ts Increasing, but that this In cieaso Is not jet proportionate to tin growth In population. Tho available supply of meat would bo much greater If It were not for the enormous losses caused by disease and exposure. Since 1WX) It Is estimated that from 1.100,000 to 1473,000 cattle have died each year from dlseaso mid from 000,000 to 1,500,000 fioni ex posure. With sheep the losses from disease Ime been nbout the snme, hut from exposure much larger With HWlne the rel:itlo prevalence of hog cholera Is perhaps the deter mining factor lu the minimi loss, lu 1 SCI I this was as low as 2,200,000, but In 101 1 It nmiiunleil to 7.0O0.OOO. f those 7,0i0.o0 hogs had been sared, It Is fiild, they would have produced enough meat to furnish every family In the United Ktntes with forty pounds of pork. To Tell a Sheep's Age. A lamb has eight small first teeth on the loner Jaw. When It reaches the age of about one year tho mlddlo pair are replaced by two permanent teeth. At the age of two the tectli on either sldo of these permanent teeth aro re placed with n permanent pair At the ago of three the next tooth on either sldo gives way to n permanent tooth. At the age of four the last or back teeth are replaced In like manner. After u sheep Is four years old one cannot tell by the teeth about the age. However, lu purchasing sheep sec to It that they bate not lust any teeth ir that the teeth harp not Ik-coiiic long lud "Uoe peggy" In appearance BUZZARDS AND DISEASE. - For a long time It has been ! known that plge-nn, luunnrda and other bliils hate spread hug cholera from fiinn lo fur.n, fivai township to township nnd from county In enmity The slate trt- erlnnrlaii of Missouri.

It might be well for farmers In other states to bring this matter to the attention of their leglsla- tors, ami If It Is found that the buzzard Is more of a danger than n help, then deny them the s protection of the law. It Is nl ways a serious matter, however. to Interfere with the balance of wild bird or animal life, nnd the buzzard docs havo Its uses. I'arm Progress. h ! ' ! H' THE GAS ENGINE. Fills Matt Important Place on Farm Machinery List. That the gas engine ranks first among labor saving machinery nnd tills the most Important pl.nee mi the farm machinery l.st Is the opinion of W II Sanders Instructor In farm inotoro In the Kansas State Agricultural college Internal combustion engines In tb.'ir present stale of etll lency inn be relbsl upon to n greater degree than any ilh er typo of farm machinery If they nro properly handled by an oonitor that understands the principles of their construction, says Mr Sjuders "The arcragc fanner with n little study nn I the application of a small amount of common sense will 11 ml that he Is capable of running nnd caring for any of the pnglnps on Ihp market. The gas engine Is nn economic necessity lo the modern farmer, not only because of Its wide adaptability. but also due to Its time saving quali ties The modern typo of farmer Ouds that ho must Keep everything nnd ev erybody going at top speed every day during the rush season. He also finds that the pace Is too much for cither man or beast to stand, and It Is here that tho gas engines show their true value. The rush season always arrives In hot weather, when tho horses aro un able to give their1 best efforts to the farmer. Tbo gas engine will travel through the hot weather with the same efficiency and Is ablo to keep up the pace without a waver for twenty- four hours at a stretch." While the gas engines aro not work ing they arc not eating their heads off, as the horses do, especially during the winter season, points out Mr. Sanders. The farmer can now purchase an engine that Is guaranteed by tho man ufacturers against Imperfection of materials for a term of three years or more. Next year will put tbo small tractor to n severe test The experi ments will determine to a great ex tent Its value on a small farm. For Cuming Stumps. I'or burning the big stumps of fir and similar tlmlicr In the I'acillc north west two limes me bored so that tliev will Intorspet deep nltbln the wool. JCX AtOVS THIS SlCC iVtuccc note A one und a half Inch auger Is used lu making the boles. Tbo bark Is skinned off between tho two holes. Ited hot coals aro pushed down tho boles to the Intersection and tho Ore Is started well within the stump. After tho pail marked "A" U burned out tbo lire U kept up by means of litter, bark nnd chunks. Silage Versus Pesture. Mow much pasture can a farmer afford to keep for his live stock with land nt Its present prices? One acre of good corn silage Is equal to four acres of ordinary pasture. Two Here of pasture will feed a cow for six mouths If there Is plenty of ruin, while an acre of corn silage will feed u cow for twelve mouths nt tbo rate of thlr-ty-Ove pounds n day If the crop Is nn average one of fifty b'lihols to Hie acre. With the prlco of land going higher and higher this Is an Important fact to remember. Many farmers who have laud that Is worth from $!MJ to ?M per acre are getting to feel that they cannot afford to have so much land In pasture as they had formerly. This Is especially true If the .und Is at all In clined to dry out, - Kimball's fairy rmer Rhubarb Planted In Fall Ituuharh planted this fall will Make a good start early next spring, and the plants make fur tielter growtu next year than those set out In tho spring.
