The striking statement from the
nation makes us wonder if we are
really doing all we can. .The whole
allied world and the neutrals are
now looking to the United States
for help as the bulwark against world
wide famine. From Finland we
have news that the people are on
the verge of starvation and are sub
sisting on a bread made largely of
edible bark. Wheat production in
France 19 off 50 per cent., all food
stuffs short 35 per cent., and earnest
appeals have just come from French
authorities for more food. Sweeden
is issuing a bread ration 25 per cent,
below that given to the German peo
ple. In Denmark and Norway there
are not six month's supplies on hand.
Switzerland and Holland are wholly
dependent on us.
The wheat stocks of the world
have been reduced to the smallest
amount ever known. Flocks and
herds are greatly diminished, as is
particularly the case in Denmark,
whosa magnificent herds are now be
ing deliberately destroyed, and in
Belgium, while the pig is rapidly

a dozen nations are coming as their

from actual starvation. To help
feed these countries as : well as to
furnish food for the armies, in the

A litter of eight pigs, farrowed in
March or April and sold in Decem
ber at 9 or 10 months old, when they
should weigh 250 pounds each, will
weigh a total of 2,000 pounds. Even
at the lowest figure of $15.50 per
100. these pigs will bring in $310 and
you still have the brood bow. It
will take much less land and labor

and the profits will be much greater.
All over Mississippi there are nice
young gilts that are now in the
fattening pen to be marketed or put
into the . smoke house. So far as
your influence goes will you see that
these gilts are saved and bred dur

Help the pig club boys to Jceep
their gilts and sows or to sell them
to some one who will breed them.
By doing these things to the best of
your ability aud doing them quickly
you are sending reinforcements di

Million and Half Troops Trans

Approximately 1,500,000 soldiers
have been safely transported by the
railroads since Aug. 1, according to

night travel and have been moved
in tourist or standard sleeping cars.
On one of the long hauls 8,000
men were transported from a camp
on the Pacific coast to the Atlantic
coast, a distance of 3,700 miles. The
men traveled in sixteen sections,
each section consisting of twelve
tourist cars and two bass&ge cars.
