Feeding Cattle in the Panhandle.
If you are hunting for the next
section of country that is going to
develop as a cattle feeder and fin
isher, you want to head for the
Panhandle of Texas. This was in
substance the language of J. W.
Dorr of Des Moines, Iowa, who
was a guest of the Transit house
last night. Mr. Dorr is a cattle
man of wide travel and experience
and let loose an interesting talk on
Panhandle possibilities.
"They raise plenty of kaiTir corn
out there," he said, "and it makes
a splendid food for cattle and hogs.
But the people out there have not
yet learned how to feed cattle.
Up here in the corn states when
the experienced cattle feeders gets
his steers on full feed he shovels
out com to about the capacity of
the said steer's appetite, and if he
is a decent steer and weather is
right he will lay on fat at a good
rate. Out there in the Panhandle
they get into the habit of shovel
ing out nothing more than an' ap
petite teaser and call it a feed. I
have never been in a country where
they had all conditions both for
raising and finishing cattle com
bined as they have out there, but
we have not yet seen any finished
cattle coming from that country.
It is because they have not learned
how to feed."
The whole range of Mr. Dorr's
talk was full of thought germi
nators. In discussing the feeding
proposition in the corn belt states
he says: "No more long feeding
forme. I have quit carrying cattle
through the long winter months.

Take a good thrifty steer weighing
around 1,000 pounds right now
and the corn that it would have
taken to carry him through the
winter from December to March
and make a small gain will carry
him through to the summer market
and make a good fat beef of him.
I empty my feed lots in the fall and
fill them up again about this time
of year. That style of feeding
may not suit some people but it
suits me first rate." St. Joseph
Interview on Cattle.
A telegram reporter obtained
the following from A. B. Robert
son of Colorado City at the Fort
Worth convention this week:
"As i matter of fact, both year
lings and twos are much scarcer
than ever before known in Texas,
and this fact is known and con
ceded by the buyers. The range
country was never in better con
dition than it is now at this season
of the vear, and these conditions
not only obtained in Texas, but
they prevail throughout New Mex
ico and Arizona. Some of our cat
tle are thin, but early grass and
abundant grass is absolutely sure.
This is quite different from last
year, when many cattle were sold
at a sacrifice on account of the ap
prehension of drouth. This spring
no man is compelled to sell his stuff
on account of lack of grass.
"Texas has some young steers
to sell this spring, and expects to
sell them; but it may be safely and
positively asserted that she will
demand and receive more money
than was paid for the same class
of stuff last year. I think our cat
tlemen ought to have from $14 to
$16 for their yearling steers, and
from $18 to $20 for their twos.

from $3 to $5 more per head than
they sold for at this time last year,
and our friends who come down
here to buy must concede this
point, which in itself justifies the
advanced price demanded by the
Texas producer.
"I think some of the estimates
given out as to the number of
steers that will be offered for sale
above the quarantine line this
spring is quite excessive, some of
the figures I have seen placing the
number of twos as high as 150,000
In my judgment there will not be
exceeding 75,000 head of twos of
fered for sale above tne quarantine
line, and the number of yearlings
in the same territory will not ex
ceed 125,000, and many of the
latter will not be offered for sale at
any price.
"The calf crop for the past year
has been very short out in the

been shipped to market. There
can be no doubt of the fact that
Texas is very short on all classes
of cattle this spring, and prices at
which our stuff is sold must be bet

at this time.

Sentences from a lecture on Vic
tor Hugo's masterpiece, delivered
at the Vine Street Congregational
Church, Cincinnati. Ohio, by the
pastor, Herbert S. Bigelow:
"The military hero is like a
meteor. With the flash of his
sword his glory is gone. For it3
fighters the world has fulsome
praise and short memories. But
the thinkers and lovers of man
kind shine as the stars in heaven."
"Victor Hugo believed that in
every human soul there is a primi
tive 6park, a divine element, incor
ruptible in this world, immortal in
the next. He held that there was
in every man a angel whom .ignor
ance could blacken and hate trans
form into a fiend of hell."
"For the unfortunates, society
has hard judgments and prison
bars. Church and state unite with
hangman's noose and dungeon cell,
to condem and punish and kill these
miserable ones. For the disin
herited children of hunger and neg
lect we build jails and scaffolds,
pausing once a week to worship
with Him who said: "Judge not.
Resist not evil. Love your ene
mies!" "The slums have been made by
social injustice. Vice and crime
are but the vomit of the slums. It
is infamous for the state to punish
as criminals the victims of its own
stupidity. What men need is not
law but liberty; justice and not
punishment. Were they truly free

they would prove their inherent
goodness. This was the philoso
phy of Victor Hugo as it was of
Jesus, and Les Miserable is the
sermon on the mount of fiction."
"Jean Valjean spent nineteen
years in the galleys for stealing a
loaf of bread. We have no use for
the word "galleys" now. Thank
God, that is one word we have
struck from our law books, We
may measure the progress of our
race by the words which it out
grows. In the dictionary of the
future the obsolete mark will be
found after the words monopoly,
poverty, millionaire and gallows,
just as now we have relegated the
words galley and slave to the dead
language of a more boarbarous

occur. About the same time, it
was reported that a man in Dele

county $225, was tied to a whip

for stealing three mackerel valued
at twenty-seven cents. Who will

"Jean Valjean was angered that
society should deprive him of a
chance to work. He saw the bread
in the window, He thought as the
starving children at home. Witha'
flash of resentment, he said: 'If
they will not let me work, I'll
steal.' "
"An imprudent act, you say!
Yes, imprudent, but not wicked.
If there was any crime, it was the
crime of society in doing what it
does even to this day in permit
ting some to monopolize the com
mon gifts of God. and condemning
others to beg or starve or steal."

the greatness of their love and
their pity and their sorrows are
like the mountain peaks that rise
above the clouds of night, flashing
from their crimson heights, the

the vast sunrise of liberty that is
yet to dispel the gloom of ignorance
and shine upon a world where laws
are just and men are kind."
