INCREASE SHORT-FED CATTLE To Save Feed, Department of Agricul ture Advises Against Too High Finishing of Animals. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) In view of the unfortunate experi ence Inst winter of some feeders of heavy cnttle, the continued high price of (trnln nnd the uncertainty of a con tinuation of good prices which well finished heavy carcasses now command, the United States department of agri culture believes that feeders should concentrate their efforts on the produc tion of economically short-fed cnttle. Of course, this statement does not re fer to baby-beef production, which Is a specialty within itself. There Is no question that for the last several years cattle feeders have been making beef too fat ; that Is, they have put more finish upon the animals than economy would justify. This Idea wns evidently in the minds of the advisory committee of agri cultural nnd live stock i>roducersflk> polnted by the department of agricul ture nnd the food administration when that committee recently made the fol lowing recommendation : "We feel that entile marketed at the present time In class 4 (long-fed or export nnd highly finished cattle), nnd known as 'exports,' owing to the high costs of lahor nnd feed, are not an economical product, nnd their produc tion should not be encouraged." Not only has the ndvlsory commit tee thus warned agnlnst the henvy feeding of cattle, but it is also under stood thnt the government officials di recting the buying policies of the gov ernment will not consider themselves responsible for the prices of very fat cattle. Ilecent experiences by various state experiment stations nnd the United States department of agriculture have borne out the fnct thnt good beef can be produced by using n relatively i A Good Herd of Pure-Bred Herefords on Pasture. small amount of grain, or with nitrog enous concentrates In connection with silage and some other cheap roughage In the form of hay. The principle that should be avoided In future feeding operations, accord ing to the advice of the department of agriculture. Is to reduce to a minimum the amount of high-priced feed and to make judicious use of cheap rough ages. In other words. Instead of feed ing from 50 to 60 bushels of dry corn per steer In the long feeding period, ns was the custom In the past, the quan tity should be, nnd tnny be profitably, reduced to 15 to 20 bushels in u short er feeding period, or the dry corn grain enn he eliminated altogether, ns the liberal use of good quality silage will furnish an excellent ration. The use of cottonseed meal, linseed meal or other protein-rich feed, even though high in price. Is to be highly recom mended, because the higher other feeds are, the more profitable becomes the use of a protein supplement. Expen sive hay may be completely eliminated in the rution by the use of a cheaper dry roughage such ns corn stover, coarse hay or straw. The department believes thnt by avoiding too heavy feeding and too high finish, nnd by following the sug gestions given above, feeders should be able to feed cattle at a profit In spite of the high prices of feed nnd labor. The recent statement of the United Stntes food administrator, nnd the nvnllnble reports from foreign countries, indicate that there ma t y be a great Inerense In the demand for beef, which Is encouraging to thé cattle feeders of this country, and especially those who suffered losses during the past feeding season. Clean Wallow Hole Important. A dean wnllow hole Is very Impor tant. Hogs may use the muddy wal low If no other Is avullnble, but If clean water Is provided In a concrete wallow they will prefer It to the mud bole. Protection From Flies. Horses, mules and cows should be protected from files ns much as possi ble. Some of the prepared sprays on the market greatly help In doing this.

Compelled to fight for their Austrian and Hungarian oppressors against their Moscovite kinsmen, they took ev ery opportunity of surrendering and of deserting In the early stages of the struggle, especially in the battles that raged in Galicia. Welcomed with open arms by the Itussians, scores of thou sands of them volunteered to serve un der the czar's ilag against the nations by whom they had been subjected to intolerable tyranny, writes F. Cunllffe Oweti in New York Sun. The Czecho-Slovaks fought hard nnd well to the very Inst for the cause of the entente, and when the bolshevik! betrayed Russia nnd her allies by con cluding a dishonorable and utterly con temptible peace at Brest-Litovsk they withdrew into the interior nnd await ed events. La's! spring they decided that they could best help the members of their race in the dual empire by making their way across Siberia to America und thence to the French front. They made their way into Siberia, helped everywhere by the respectable inhabitants, who were wearied to death of tlie bolslievlkl nnd of their all ot chicul and terrorist activities. They did not, however form one large body. They were too numerous for that. As a unit their march eastward would have offered too many difficulties In the way of food nnd transport. They separated into several well disciplined armies.

And they were Instructed to turn back to re-enforce the comrades whom they bad left behind them pending the ar rival of troops of the entente. Several American regiments have al ready been disembarked at Vladivostok, as well as a large Italian contingent. French troops have been hurried thith er from Tonkin and Indo-China and a large British force from India. The bulk, however, of the allied army which is to preserve Siberia, with all iter boundless industrial and commer cial possibilities and her literally in exhaustible latent riches, for the Rus sian people from the enconomic and political despotism of Germany is be ing furnished by Japan. Released Prisoners Oppose Them. The Czecho-Slovnk forces have re tained their arms. But they are han dicapped by the. lack of ammunition and above all by the absence of artil lery, both light and heavy. They have against them not alone the bolsheviki, but also considerably more than 1(H), (XKi German and Austrian prisoners of war who after their enpture were in terned in Siberia, who were released under the terms of the bolshevik treaty of pence at Brest-Litovsk nnd who have been since then furnished by the bolshevik government nnd by the Ger man military authorities with arms, munitions, artillery, supplies, money and even airplanes. They constitute a formidable enemy. Fortunately for our cause, the bulk of the people In Siberia nre for us. The white population of Siberia is com posed In the main part of a class im measurably superior in Intelligence, ed ucation, progressiveness and blood to the Moscovite mujiks, who form 95 per cent of the population of European Russin. We of the entente owe a debt of grat itude to these gallant Czecho-Slovaks Were It r.->t for the fight which they have put up in Siberia against Ger many and the bolsheviki the Teuton domination of that enormous territory, almost a continent in itself, would be well nigh complete and almost beyond reclamation. If Germany had control of Siherln she could afford to surrender, not alone Belgium and the invaded districts of France, but even all Alsace and Lor raine-. away back to the Rhine; to fore go any idea of dominating Bulgaria and Turkey; in one word, to abandon Gift Brought Punishment.

It must never he forgotten that in re storing sovereignty nnd Independence to the Czecho-Slovaks we are not cre ating anything new, but merely repair ing a great wrong. Few nations have contributed more to the prosperity and to the progress of central Europe than Bohemia, whose people were in an ad vanced state of civilization when Ger many was a region of bogs and of rob ber barons. Their university at Prague, founded in 1348, Is the oldest seat of learning east of the Rhine, and It served as a model of most of the universities sub sequently created on the continent. The Czechs are an ancient race. They were flourishing in Bohemia away back in the fifth century before Christ, and they have always been noted for their progressive spirit, for their longings in the direction of liberalism and democ racy, and above all for their indus trial and commercial enterprise, thanks to which they have been for the past 400 years the economic backbone of the Hapshurg monarchy. They were independent/ a ul there fore unfettered, until they foolishly elected Emperor Ferdinand of Austria as their ruler in 1520, not only because he was married to the daughter and heiress of their last king of the dynasty of St. Wenceslaus, but also because he solemnly pledged himself to respect their national rights and liberties. Needless to add that Ferdinand I fail ed to keep his promises. Tills Is a peculiarity of the house of Hapshurg. When he found thnt his powers, which were absolute in Austrin proper, were i r f in Bohemia he Proceeded to ,,ho ls 1 1 10 fitter's national privileges one by one. Nearly n hundred years later the Czechs, led by their territorial aristoc racy. organized n revolt against the despotism of tiie Austrian emperor, Ferdinand II, who had shown himself far more dangerous nnd hostile to Bo hemia ns an ally than as an open en emy. The Czechs were defeated in tiie memorable buttle of tiie White Mountain, which marked the end of the independence of Bohemia as a na tion. Always Oppressed by Teutons. From that time forth tiie Czeclm-Slo vaks have been n constant subject of their national independence nnd their ; autonomy on the smile footing ns Ilun gery and to have himself crowned at " " oppression and tyranny of the govern ments of Vienna and of Posth, encour aged and abetted by the Hohenzollern dynasty, which has ever seen in Czecho-Slovnk nationalism and eeo I notnle importance an obstacle and n barrier to its openly avowed designs of extending its sovereignty from Ber lin to tiie Mediterranean, at the head of the Adriatic. Well nigh every rul er of the dual empire lias pledged him self at one period or another of Ills reign to restore to the Czecho-Slovaks Plague with the crown of St. YVenees liius mid invested with the sceptre, the °rb and the mantle of thnt famous rul er and patron saint as king of Bo hemia. In no ease have these promises been kept, not even by the present Emperor Charles, who gave an under taking of tills kind on his accession to the throne of the dual empire.
