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
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?

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.
Feeding Tables Hard to Follow on
Account of Variation of
[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
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
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.

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.”
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.

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.”

“Yet you go around with a perpetual
