WOMACK LOSES BARN AND 14 vCOWS Loose Animals Battered Door Down and Saved Selves—Cause of Tire Is Not Known. Mr. R. L. Womack, prosperous Lin coln county farmer and dairyman, lost his barn aAd 14 cows by Are yesterday morning shortly after the midnight hour. All of the animals that perished ir. the flames were fine milk cows and were tied in ' their stalls, while some 40 or 60 loose cows and heifers in the same barn escaped after in some way opening the barn door, no doubt this incident being caused by their lurching In their distress in an endeavor to es cape the heat from the fire. In ad dition to the loss of the barn and cows that perished a large lot of farm im plements, hay and feed stuff was also consumed. " i Mr. Womack is unable to. account for the cause of the blaze. When awaken ed by the glare of the Are and the stir of the imprisoned animals in the barn it was too late to afford any succor to them or to quench the flames. The milk cows wese tied in their stalls on account of the bad weather conditions while a large number of prospective dairy animals were shut up in the barn to keep them from the weather, and it is no doubt due to some of this num ber that the saving of all those run ning loose in the barn is due, as their frenzy undoubtedly enabled them by force of might to knock the barn door open when the heat excited them and helped to save their lives as a result. Liven of those escaping, there were half a dozen that were so badly burned that a veterinary had to be called if! an effort to save them and alleviate their suffering. A number had to be killed. Mr. Womack carried a small amount of insurance on the property that ivas de stroyed. * To prevent a cold take 666. Farm Bureau Gets Seed Potatoes.

WOOL BENEFITS QUESTIONED - i Fair Tariff League Head Saye Beeta Are Not Important American Crop. By H. E. MILES, Chairman of the Fair Tariff League. Sugar In the beet, the product of the farm, Is given a protection of 5% ad valorem In the Fordney Tariff Bill now before Congress. Refined sugar, the product of the beet sugar factory, Is protected with a specific rate equivalent to from 80% to 100% ad valorem on the basis of present prices. > * For example, the Michigan sugar factory receives a prohibitive protec tion against the Importation of the product of the Canadian sugar factory, but the Michigan sugar beet farmer receives practically no protection against the Canadian sugar beet. In view of this farmers are asking If the' 00% Increase in the. tariff on Cuban raw sugar contained In the Fordney Tariff Bill Is an effort to pro tect the farmer or an effort to pay a further bonus to an already sufficient ly protected beet sugar Industry. All farmers use sugar. They usually buy It In 100 pound sacks. Every time a farmer buys a sack of sugar he pays $2.00 as the result of the tariff on sugar. Half of this goes to the Gov ernment and half of It to the beet sugar manufacturer. This is true because we consume in this country twice as much sugar as we make, but the price of sugar to the farmer Is the Cuban price plus the tariff. But the farmer pays this price on both the domestic sugar and the foreign sugar. Therefore the farmer pays half of this tax to the Govern ment and half to the manufacturer of beet sugar In this country. Sugar Beets a Minor Product The farmer might feel that he was getting some benefit out of this If the raising of sugar beets was actually an Important American agricultural pur suit. This, however, Is not the case. The crop acreage of sugar beets for 1920 was 692,455. The crop acreage for peanuts was 1,256,000, almost-dou ble the acreage devoted to the cultiva tion of sugar beets. The following table Indicates the Importance of the acreage devoted to sugar beets as compared with certain other crops: ougai UCCIB «MM* Buckwheat . 739,000 Clover seed. 843,000 Sweet potatoes... 1,042,000 Bice ..*. 1,091,800 Bye . 1,103,000 Peanuts ......... 1.256,000 Flaxseed . 1,572,000 Tobacco . 1,910,800 Irish potatoes.... 8,952,000 Barley . 7,198,000 Cotton . 83,566,000 Oats . 41,835,000 Hay . 56,552,000 Wheat . 72,308,000 Corn . 100,072,000 Even those farmers who raise sugar beets might properly ask In what way their interests are being protected by an increase In the duty on Cuban sugar. It Is currently rumored that the contract price paid the farnjer for sugar beets during the coming season will be from $5.00 to $5.50 a ton. The average pte-war price "with the tariff at lc was $5.57, approximately the price* that will be paid farmers during the coming season with the tariff Increased 60%. % Very few'farmers grow wool, but all farmers wear clothes. American grown wool, the product of the American farm, Is one of the chief rallying cries of the high tariff exponent. Fallacy of Wool “Protection" Farmers are clad In mid-winter mostly In cotton #nd shoddy, and yet the woolen manufacturer today Is given 45 cents a pound protection on the entire weight of the farmers’ clothing on the basis that it Is all wool. He passes this additional cost on to the farmer, but gives the wool grower about one-third of this 45 cents In In creased price of wooL A foreign piece of men’s suiting weighing eighteen ounces to the yard Is 40% cotton, 80% wool and 30% wool shoddy, costing on the present rate of exchange $109 a yard. A com parable domestic fabric costs $1.75. Under the Fordney Tariff the duty would be 24% of this $1.75, or 42c; the weight duty at 30c a pound, 33 %c, and the landing charge 9%c, making ' the foreign, fabric cost here $1.95. Under the present Emergency Tariff, with its 45c a pound weight duty, the fabric would cost $2.08 as against the American price of $1.75. The wool grower would get 15c pro tection per pound Instead of the 45c weight duty,, the manufacturer keep ing 30c of the weight duty, but charg ing the farm** who bifys clothing the •_mm it. LUU WV. The American farmer should be In terested to find out why It Is that his common agricultural Implements man ufactured In the United States can be bought for less by the European farm er than he has to pay for them, thanks to the protective tarlfT. For Instance, he should Inquire why he has to pay $8.91 a dozen for a shovel manufactured in this country while the identical shovel exported can be bought In Europe for $7.50.

Walnut Ridge, Ark.—Although he probably never read the story of the two little princes in the tower, Grover Bolt was sentenced to serve five years in the state penitentiary for a crime that was almost a parallel to King Richard Hi’s, except that it did not result in the death of the intended vic tims. Some time ago Bolt, who lived In the neighborhood of Rlchwoods, a small farming settlement not Tar from Walnut Ridge, was appointed guardian of two small nephews, whose parents *~ .. ■ i ■ ■ ....s Brutally Beat the Boys. had died. One of the boys was eleven years old and ‘the other four. They had been left Insurance amounting t« about $1,000. The crime to which Bolt pleaded guilty, although saying MI did not de it,” was an attenlpt to kill the two boys so that he could obtain the In surance money, first by attempting to starve them, then by direct assault The resourcefulness of the older boy blocked the starvation plan. Locked In a room with his brother, he found some cotton seed and they subsisted on this for a week. When the starvation pro gram failed, Bolt brutally beat the boys.
