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
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

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.

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

that they could best help the members

They were too numerous for that. As

have offered too many difficulties In

The Czecho-Slovnk forces have re

Repairing Great Wrong.
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
