adgerton, - Wisconsin, ft’ w. COON, - Editor and Publisher FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1917! Now comes the national council of defense with the statement that auto mobile joy riding must be curtailed be cause gasoline is needed for war and industrial pursuits. The production is already falling short of the supply and the use of autos for pleasure should be frowned on. Another indication our nation is at war. At THE recent meeting of the head camp of Modern Woodmen of America, a “patriotic assessment” of 20 cents per thousand, each month, was voted lor the purpose of carrying through the war period all members of the Wood men who enlist or are called for their country’s service at the front. It is expected that somewhere in the neigh borhood of one hundred thousand Wood men will be in the service and this ar rangement will provide for the pay ment at face value of all death claims occasioned by the war. “I want to tell you that the drafted man who does his duty is on the same plane of honor as any other man who does his duty. There is no stigma at tached to being drafted. But those who are registered or not registered, who do not do their duty, who do not make every possible effort to serve, are not on the same plane of honor as the drafted man. Escaping draft doesn’t relieve you of your duty to serve. That’s the way to look at the draft.” —From a speech by Theodore Roose velt. The ha&it of thrift has been so greatly encouraged in America by the Liberty Loan Bonds which appealed strongly to patriotism and at the same time furnished such a splendid oppor tunity for saving, that it is believed that an era of economy and saving has been well begun in this nation. The American people are now thoroughly informed in the matter of government bonds and it seems the consensus of opinion of authorities on such matters that the next Liberty Bond issue will sell more readily than the two billion dollar issue which has just been oversubscribed 50 per cent. Thrift joins with patriotism and humanity to make the next bond issue a success. The following is taken from the Es pionage act recently passed by con gress: . Sec. 3. Whoever, when the United States is at war, shall wilfully make or convey false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the oper ation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to pro mote the success of its enemies, and whoever, when the United States is at war, shall wilfully cause or attempt to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mut iny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or shall wilfully obstruct the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States, to the injury of the service or of the United States, shall be punished by a fine of not more than SIO,OOO or imprisonment for not more than twenty years, or both. St. Paul railroad dividends are down despite greater gross earning. Natur ally the stock has tumbled in sympathy and is quoted about 72. All this would seem to indicate poor management and the papers hint at the possible retire ment of President Earling. The mis management is obvious when there is business to be done and the road doesn’t doit.—Ex. Is this a fair statement? It is a well known fact that for several years up to 1916 half the railroads of the country were threatened with re ceivership and the other half barely paid dividends. They were beset on every hand by hostile legislatures add ing expense to operation and making it harder to do business. The result has been that none of the lines have kept abreast of their needs in replacements and equipments. The roads have but one thing to sell and that is transporta tion. If not permitted to sell this at a profit, how can they be expected to serve the public satisfactorily? The cost of operation has increased wonder fully siqce war times have come. Why should not their service be worth more? •XjpoiaA jßqj a.vij ~B2au 04 XjjabjS joj aiuij araos saquj 41 piiß ‘pißAvdn Xjpoia.v b uaAtS aaß jaqnq aqj piiß übui aqj qjoq—J|B aqj ojuj nnS b raojj joqs uaqAi Suisu b joj uosßaj aqj sb euißS aqj si sasu übui aqj Xq.v\. uosbo.i aqj, *rajq anosaj pnu nßin aqj jo apis aqj Xq daaq jqSnn jassaA aqj ‘juaasß sji jo paads aqj Snpnpai Jfq ‘snqj, qjJßa aqj pjb.\ioj HBj 04 SumuiSaq aaojaq 4004 uaajxjs asp ppiOAi übui aq4 puooas b 4005 OAV4 -.£jjiqj jo ajBJ aq4 JB Sujpuaosß aaa.w diqsjiß aqj jj UAiop arano aq sb übui aq4 qojBD pinoo 44 araij aq4 4B juaosß 84j n 4 paddo4S aJdAv aiqqDßin jib 0144 jl -00144 aiqßiaaiddß ub joj J|b aq4 04U4 gujsu eniqjuoD hjm 4nq ‘qjJßa aq4 pjßjjoj o3 40U 114 AI aq uooqßq jo anßjd -OJ3B 3uisjj b jo 4no sijbj umu b ji *uoo||*g * jo jno dfl 6uj||.j *ap4uojqo nopuoq—-jsii qnj aqj jo uojjdbjj ajacu b 0.18 asaqj, •paUAiOJp SBAV PUB uoay aqj ojui qaj ‘qaiAiJßAl jo jaqaraaoqs b “s 'AI jaq4oUß uibSb ja£ pun ‘96QI ‘fl qouuK no paz44dßq (qSnoua XpißinSaqs) -ns JajqSnup siq„ pßq ~‘ußiuaiJuaS,, ‘ajßadsaqßqs tubhual Jaq4oUß 4444s -2091 ‘Bl qoJtJTC sjq apßiu ‘£l4 -uaAOO jo jaqßmaoqs b ‘jaqjouß :g9Qx ‘6l uo 4< nßxoJAl jo Jadsaqßqg jja -qoH„ jo spooS aqj pao4.id s Ai -toqjo -ub Japio JOdns uojibay aVi aqj 04 *SB pißd„ ajßadsaqßqg nißiillAi b 48q4 ‘sStnqj jaqjo Suouib ‘Aioqs spjooaJ oJ4qssiDiAiJßAi <,‘6091 ‘2ny 8 ‘‘tnil4Al jo JajqSnßp ‘jaadsqoßqg außf,, -ua aqj sj ajaqj ‘pußJjg aqj 04 ‘saiißa 40001013 *jg jo sjajsjSaJ aqj U 4 sißunq aqj Suomy -jsad aqj 04 sajuadsaqßqg uibittiav Xubot uaaq aABq ojaqx Lost Chicago Athletic Club fob.

[National Crop Improvement Service.] The feeding value of straw being comparatively low, and the fertilizing value being high, all straw should be spread upon the fields and not burned or wasted. The use of straw to pre vent winter-killing of wheat is now well established. THE DAIRY RATION Feeding Tables Hard to Follow on Account of Variation of Ingredients. [National Crop Improvement Service.] For many years feeders have en deavored to use so-called standard tables showing the theoretical num ber of pounds each of so-called di gestible protein, fats and carbohy drates. These methods are fatally defective for the following reasons: First, the tables call for so much digestible food. If there was such a thing as digestible food it might fur nish a basis to go by, but digestible food is really apparently digestible food, in that it disappears In the body. Just what use is made of it is not al ways/ clear. Some of it turns into gas, some is converted into heat, and much of it is used in the labor of digesting and handling the food. In the case of straw and similar material, nearly all of its energy is used up in the labor of digesting it, leaving little or no net gain. Straw should be re turned to the soil. Take two samples of dried barley grains, each contain ing the same amount of digestible food, and one will give twenty more therms or heat units than the other. One hundred pounds of digestible food derived from roughage is about equal to eighty pounds derived from grain, so if we add together things which are unlike, we get no tangible results. It is like adding so many pounds to so many gallons. So, the digestible basis of figuring rations is very inaccurate. The correct way is, first, to ascertain liow much protein and energy a cow needs to sustain life and keep weight. You can get this from your experiment station, and ascertain how much is necessary to make one pound of milk of a cer tain fat test, and then feed her as much protein and energy as is needed to maintain her and supply food for as many pounds of milk as she can make. This is a very difficult problem and few can do it, and we challenge any two men to tackle the same prob lem under the same conditions and arrive at the same result. We cannot tell unless we try to find out, that a cow will not give more milk on more feed, or maybe as much milk on less feed. So feeding is large ly experimental, as no two cows are alike. However, the law of averages will hold, and the feeder can save all this trouble and much loss by feeding a ration which his experiment station has in most cases made, say three to four pounds of milk for each pound of mixed feed. There is one thing certain. The more solids and fat in the milk, the more feed needed per pound of milk. So, a good mixed feed which is prop erly combined and all the roughage she will eat will greatly simplify your feeding problem and a very little ex perimenting will soon show you how much concentrates each cow needs to produce a maximum yield.

COMPANY DEPARTMENT STORE EDGERTON, WISCONSIN. Worse and Worse. There is a story in connection with a certain paper which tells how it re ferred to two learned gentlemen as “bibulous old flies” instead of “biblo philes.” Next morning the editor re ceived a very wrathful protest. In his correction and apology, however, he said something about “the learned gen tlemen are too fastidious.” To the editor’s horror the printer again dis tinguished himself, and the statement appeared “the learned gentlemen are two fast idiots.” 1 A Motorcar Race In 1895. In 1895 a few enthusiastic “horseless carriage” manufacturers decided that the time was ripe for a race. As we look back at it now the contest was a mechanical jest. The vehicles started bravely and then stopped lamely while their drivers made repairs. One in ventor followed his mechanical wonder with a team of horses. The Tvinner of the race had averaged the mad speed of seven and one-half miles an hour. His engine, carefully tested after the feverish contest was over, was found to develop an amazing four horsepower. —Waldemar Ivaempffert in Harper’s Magazine. Football and Matrimony. “Well, I wish him luck,” said Mr. Jones after reading in the paper an account of the wedding of a popular member of a college football team. “But,” he added in a ruminating tone, “marriage is very much like football.” “Don’t talk so ridiculous!” snapped Mrs. Jones. “How can you compare football to marriage?” “Why,” replied Jones, “it looks so easy to those who haven’t tried it.” Should Dissemble. “You claim to have loved and lost.” “Yes.” “Yet you go around with a perpetual grin on your face. When you have loved and lost, deference to the lady makes it proper not to appear to be too cheerful a loser.” —Louisville Cou rier-Journal. Ellis Island.
