Dr. James F. McCaleb, Byrnmore
Plantation, and Charles L. Will, Will
wood Farm, had a discussion at a
country postoffice one evening on the
question of black color in cattle from
red cows by black bulls. The upshot
af the whole matter was to submit
the points to the Breeders' Gazette by
Dr. McCaleb thus 1 "Please let me
kn °w if the offspring of red cows by
blqck bulls would be black, or if brind
ley or brown in one or two gener
ations, would they be black in the
third generation, and so on? Did
not the red Angus of Scotland throw
off black Angus calves by black An
gus bulls, or in how many genera
tions did all black prevail? Can the
white tip tail of any breed be elimi
nated as in the AnguB?" Associate
Editor Dewitt C. Wing of the Breed
ers' Gazette says: "We have your
postcard of the 18th inst., which
have typed, as per enclosure, ff we
have corrçc% Mupgfa)' it please
return the tr^nserjptiqn to us, so that

a reply " Both gentlemen await with

The recent primary brought to light
many of our citizens that disqualified
themselves by non-payment of poll
taxes, and were loud in their protest
that their names were not on the poll

the summer primary. Maybe it will
be on it th e faU election.

including bridge and culvert construc

give first consideration to mainten

and that reconstruction will be ap

maintenance no longer is practicable.
Now construction will be considered
for highways and streets of military
value, of national economic value, un

BOY WRITES WISELY
WHY I AM GOING BACK TO
The American Boy is one of the
largest papers for boys in America.
It recently asked its boy readers to
write letters why they were going to
Bchool this fall. From 596 letters
ceived the first prize was awarded to
J. Russell Salebury of Nebras
ka, a 16 year old boy. It is given
"I am going back to school this fail
because it is my patriotic duty. We
are at war, a war that is taking all of
young men who have completed
or soon would have completed their
education. This leaves the. business
at home to be done by the older and
the younger men. Therefore it is my
patriotic duty to get all the educa
tion I can before my country needs
me; When the call comes for me, I
will gladly go and with my higher ed
ucation will be of more military vaue
than if I had enlisted early. Our
President has asked all school boys
to get all of the education they can
and do their war work after school
hours. A request from the President
has become a command now, so we
have to obey.
"It is my duty to civil life. If my
country does not need me for war, I
will be of more value in civil life as
a techical man, if I complete my ed
"It is a gain either way the ques
tion is taken. If the education is not
used to advantage in the service, it
stiil has another chance to express
itself profitably in the business
professional world in peace times af
ter the war.
"It is my privilege. If some French
children can go to school in a cave
without modern conveniences, some
times wearing gas masks, masks to
avoid being poisoned, I see no reason
why a strong healthy boy should stay
away from school, where there is no
danger and where all the modern con
veniences are provided, especially
when such neglect would be crippling
the country in years to come."
Few medicines have met with more
favor or accomplished more good than
Chamberlain's Colic arid Diarrhoea
Remedy. JoJip j\ Jantzen, Delmeny,
Sask., says of it, "I have used Cham
berlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy ;
myself and in my family, and can
recommend it as being an exceptional
