Common and Inferior Cattle 1 Nevei
Bring As Much Money on Market
,as Better Grades;
The only reason that the average
person can give for using a scrub sire
In any line of live stock breeding Is
that they tlilnk t{iey are making money
by using a cheap animal. They do not
figure into the futiire and see that It
Is the offspring of this animal which
will either make or lose them money.
The corn breeder does Dot think of se
lecting the nubhlns with which to
plant his corn field. Neither can the
live stock, man afford to select a sire
which will not produce a better and
more uniform class of stuff. A glance
Into the live stock market will con
vince one that the purebred sire with
thé proper Individual merit will be a
paying Investment. When common
and inferior steers are selling for nine
cents, a better grade of steers In the
same kind of flesh are usually selling
for from 10 to 11 cents. In addition to
this, the better cattle usually will put
on gains more economically.

International Ladles' Garment Work
ers' Union Will. Establish Co

Labor unions maintain that tlfe trou
ble with the present clothing prices Is
the profiteer—not tlie wage profiteer,
but the manufacturer of textiles prof
iteer, the Jobber profiteer, sometimes
four or five of him In the gradual
transferenoe of the material to the
manufacturer of the garment profiteer,
the retail profiteer. In Mils arithmet
ical progression of the price of the
garment, the consumer kndws only the
last figure whose bloated waistline he
attributes to what he reads in the
newspapers concerning labor unrest.
The International Ladies'' Garment
Workers' union means to wipe out the
Jobber, the garment manufacturer, the
retailer by establishing their own co
operative factories. Even granting
the fact that the union must buy the
raw material at the price asked by the
profiteering manufacturer of textiles,
they expect to be able to pay their
members better wages, work their fac
tories and stores on a seven-hour day,
give the public finished garments at
prlcès below those at <*her stores —
and still turn money Into the union
"There are in New Tork city alone,"
said Benjamin Schlesinger, Interna
tional president of the union, "twenty
five hundred clothing manufacturers,
who employ over 50,000 workers. These
men are in the business for but one
purpose—to make money. With no
need to earn profits why then should
we not be able to make.goods at low
er cost to the public and at greater
benefit to our people?"
This Is the direct punph of the
project. Behind- It Is a more inter
esting test : Can labor direct «iid
manage its production? Capital the
union has; there are 150,000 members
In good standing and by the small as
sessment of only $5 the "tools of pro
duction" become accessible. Organized
labor in this country has only recently
discovered the wealth of Its composite
group and that this can be used for
mutual advantage.
Mr. Schlesinger points out that the
creators of style here and in France
are workpeople and that the union is
affiliated with the organized Parisian
clothing workers.
Responsibility on Workers If They
Enter Into Ac.tive Partnership
With Capital.
A great calamity of these days Is
the utter confusion as to the nature
and apportionment of wages. There
are labor leaders—and not a few, eith
er—who advance the theory that no
matter how high wages açe driven up
they work no injury,, for the reason
that money taken from society In form
of wages Is returned to' society. If
this were trué, wages might as well be
raised a hundred or a thousand fold.
The absurdity is palpable.
^Another theory, urged with such de
termination by coal miners in Illinois
and Pennsylvania that strikes have
been declared to enforce it, is to the
effect that employers are bound to di
vide their profits with their employees.
This not only Is absurd, but also con
trary to the Interests of those who
makç 'the demand. «
If the employees Insist upon partner
ship, they must take the bitter with
the sweet ; they must share losses and
profits. Under prosperous conditions
they would receive high wages.. Un
der unfavorable conditions wages
would sink as profits go down, and, if
no profits were made, which is not Im
possible, work would have to be done
without compensation.—Cincinnati En

dents, while the opposition has con
tended that dairymen, ranchmen and
farmers In general use "milk" instead
of "milch" almost universally. The
advocates of "milk" also favored that
word because, they contended, it .was
more strictly an English word, while
"milch" was akin to Germart. Since
Americanization of language as well
as Ideals is an article in every patriot's
creed, it is thought that this last sally
of the "milk" defenders helped as
much as any to decide the question In
their favor.
Animals Are Naturally of Nervous and
Excitable Disposition and
Resent Roughness.
In the hurry of getting chores done,
a dairyman spmetimes forgets that
dairy cows are naturally of a nervous
and'excitable disposition, and that un
der conditions of excitement or fear
the milk flow is lessened materially.
Driving cows on the run, chasing them
by dogs and with loud shouting are
not allowed on a well-managed dairy
farm. In the stable all operations
should- be carried, on quietly. When a
cow kicks there usually Is a reason for
It ; the teats may be hurt by the milker
or tbe cow may be frightened. At such
a time a little care in removing the
cause and pacifying the cöw often will
prevent further trouble. Many good
cows become confirmed kickers and
consequently less profitable as a re

This is especially true if the ration
happens to be in protein ; for, while
an excess of protein may be substituted
for energy, energy prothiclng foods can

a ration. The milk flow, therefore,
may be limited to the protein content
of the ration, even the energy produc
ing foods may be present in excess.
An economical ration Is a balanced
