The Uncivil War.
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

FARM TRACTORS HELP
Maohines Have Bcen Improved iI
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
"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."

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
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. L. Prehn, Ex
