As opposed to the civil war be tween the states the present world strife may be known as the uncivil war. Never before has a belliger ent nation been so uncivil as marks the conduct of the German empire. Never before has a na tion calling itself civilized waged ruthless war upon helpless women and innocent children. Never be fore has such hideous atrocities been lih;tped upoi,, captives. Al ways heretofore unfortified towns an(l cities have been respected (4ermany respects nothing. Truly this is an uncivil war and Germany least civil of all. - Texas Farm and Ranch. - w.s.s. - -. .

Great things are expected of the farm tractor in the present food emer g ncy, and it is safe to say that we shall be absolutely dependent on the gas tractor for a very large part of the immediate peak load. "The tractor has passed through a marked refining process recently. In anticipation, it would seem, of the In creased demands shortly to be made upon it, and it will answer satisfactor ily all reasonable demands," says E. B. Doran, assistant professor of agron. onmy, L. S. U. "It is ready and wait ing to be hitched to the plow or har row or drill or binder. It has not al ways been the case that gas engines and gas tractors were so reliable. But today just as we ride in our trusty automobile and never give an anxious thought to reaching our destination, with the same confidence we can sit in the comfortable seat of our equally reliable friend, the tractor, and look ahead with assurance to the steady execution of the many jobs on the farm which it is eo admirably fitted to perform. "No longer does the tractor pack the ground with its heavy weight, nor does it require such a large area In which to turn as heretofore. No more does it suck into its vitals dust-laden air to grind and wear and cause use less waste. It cleverly filters all the air it breathes in one of several In. genious ways. More and more fre quently do we find the tractor with all gears, pinions, etc., In fact, all moving parts except the drive and steering wheels, effectively protected from dust and provided with abundant and post tire lubrication. It is becoming more business-like and smooth and trim in appearance, and more confidence-win ning. The tractor is the new found hired man who doesn't complain of long hours. The tractor is the new ehampigt of the cause of more food." -L. S. U. Press Bulletin. PROFITABLE HENS SHOULD BE RETAINED Indications Point To Good Poultry Prices Next Fall and Wieter. A large number of Louisiana lias mers were unable to commenee their hatching early enough to procure the desired number of chicks within the regular hatching period, according to John L. Prehn, Extension Poultry Husbandman, U. S. Department of Ag riculture, co-operating with L. S. U. It is therefore advisable, says Mr. Prehn, to make up for this shortage by retaining all profitable hens under two years old. It is essential to cull out the drones or slackers among the hens, but hold and care for the like y layers. Records show that the plans for the 1918 hatching season would use about 19 per cent less eggs for that purpose than rn 1917. Added to thi; we have the' fact that most of the commercial ha~-Ith r, s of the country were unable to carrt out their plans through inability, to make shipmen.s because of expr.rcss congestion, etc. It is ther, fore evident that this year's production will he cc.nsiderably below normal; and this in the face of greater requirements assuref: a good price for poultry daring thlb fall and winter mont hs. On March 1.. there was in this coun try about 20 per cent less poultry than at the same time last year. The Government is urging that every farmn in the country carry as many hens as can be conventently handled, so those farmers who must dispose of profitable hens during the coming summer elhould sell to other farmers who can care for them. The only poultry that a patriotic and thrifty farmer would sell for market during the next six months are old roosters, no longer re quired for breeding purposes; surplus young roosters, as fryers and bort roasters, and hens which can not pos sibly be made to do their bit in the way of laying egs.4-J.
