Lucky for Sleeping Occupants That

It occurred In the country during the

very tired, and finally they both j
dropped off to sleep.
' It so happened that late the day be

that way, leaving deep ruts in the mud.
and during the evening these had froz

and ran along them with no one quid- !

Southern Doughboy Who Fought in
France Is Strong for the Appella
tion "Yank."
The monicker, Yank, is going to
stick. Just read what this fellow, who j
was born south of Mason and Dixon's j
line, writes:
"I come from a line of 'rebels' who
boast that they did not surrender.
Until I was quite a husky chap I be
lieved that 'd Yankee' was one
word and 'Republican' its synonym, |
and knew the 'rebel yell' as a varsity
boj knows his college yell. Before
the war I wore a slouch bat, rode
horseback and shot squirrels. I still
say cawn bread, think Dixie should
be our national air, that Robert B. Lee
was the world's greatest general, and
Jefferson Davis, sub, the world's great
eft statesman.
"Hut, speaking for myself and a J
not overly small bunch of fellow 'reb- |
els,' I am exactly satisfied with the
honest, hard-fisted, firm-jawed and
seemingly inevitable nickname of
Yank, and say, with one of the papers
back home:
" 'Let Yank be the official battle J
name of our boys, and the "rebel yell"
their official battle cry.' "

Cutting the Nation's Tire Bill.
"Forty makes of motor tires were J
submitted to the bureau of standards
by the office of the quartermaster gen- j
era),'' writes Thomas H. Uzzell in Ev
erybody's. "They were given labora
tory 'durability runs.' after which they
were autopsied by the rubber special
ists. Their carcasses' were cut up and
the pieces ladled, roasted, stretched.
The results were discouraging. Even j
the best of them seemed to suffer ]
from Improper 'toughening.'
"So into their little rubber-mill went '
the experts, with notes furnished them i
by the tire manufacturers, - and pro- |
ceeded to make up some tire rubber
which hud the proper degree of tough
ness. They succeeded. They passed
out the word: 'The trouble Is that you
makers are not sifting your zinc oxld
before mixing It with the rubber com- J
"The makers began to sift. Better
tires resulted. Some $30,000,000 were
saved to the government. And today
you are enjoying a cut In your tire bill
by getting better tires—a result of
that experiment with zinc oxid."
Successful Woman Trapper.
Trapping predatory animals Is
scarcely the kind of occupation In

western division of the United States

in this employment that her male ri- ,

Light of anticipation shone in the
handsome brother's eyes as he finished
reading his sisters letter. Genevieve
always had his Interest at heart, she
was right, a marriage for money was
his only road to success, and he would
bid Phoebe good-by and start Imme
diately for Ocean Breeze. Phoebe
need not know his proposed adventure;
the shock would be hard enough when
it came. He must let her down easy.
When he arrived at the ocean re
sort, his sister met him, jubilantly.
"Just In time for presentation to
-Miss Rosle." she said. "That quaint
name suits her demure pinkness. The
Austin Smiths are driving."
Gilbert looked admiringly down at
the dainty girlish figure before which
his sister paused. It seemed too good
to be true, that an heiress so desirable
should also be the possessor of love
liness and charms,
Miss Rosle smiled in acknowledg
ment of the introduction, and though

lowed, was upon her embroidery, she
glanced up at the irresistible Gilbert

Thereafter he assiduously devoted

Historical Appellations Bestowed on
Summits of Mountain Range in
Old Vermont.
Heretofore when one spoke of the
presidential range everyone — every
New Lnglander, at least— knew, with
out further particularizing, that Mount
Washington and its attendant summits
was the subject, writes Allen Cham
berlain in the Boston Evening Tran
Henceforth one must needs be more
specific, since during the last year a
rival presidential range has appeared
on the map in Vermont. That region,
hitherto generally spoken of as the
Bread Loaf Mountain section, lying
between Middlebury gap and the Lin-
Warren pan, was but little
known, except in its southerly portion,
until the Green Mountain club men
ran their Skyline trail through. They
found there a maze of unnamed sum
mits grouped as in council, and seem
ingly worthy of being recognized as
individuals of distinction.
Just north of these heights is the
rugged mass whose summits have been
known for more than half a century as
Mounts Abraham and Lincoln. Quite
naturally the idea of a new presiden
tial range arose and, with great parti
san restraint, four of the neighboring
mountains were therefore named
Mount Grunt, Mount Grover Cleve
land, Mount Roosevelt and Mount
Woodrow Wilson.

One Hundred Carloads of Cholera-
Free Animals Shipped Annually
From South Dakota.
(Prepared m the United States Depart
iii, v. of Agriculture.)
Feeder hogs, perfect as to specifica
tion and designed to satisfy the most
discriminating purchaser, are exported
annually from the Belle Fourche
reclamation project, South Dakota.
Approximately 100 carloads of cholera
free and alfalfa-raised porkers are
shipped each season. The output for
the last few years has been purchased
by Nebraska farmers who fatten and
condition the hogs for tire central mar
kets. A special advantage about such
shipments Is thai the animals need
not be held In quarantine while vacci
nated to satisfy the requirements of
Interstate shipment, and the purchaser
does not have to bear added expenses,
such as yardage ami feed costs, which
lie would have to pay if he bought his
stock hogs on the central market.

Dakota Farmers Specialize In Feeder
Hog Production.
the state live stock sanitary board.
The hog growers of that section have
decided it is most profitable for them
to produce feeder hogs because the
high price and limited quantity of corn
In their vicinity available for feeding
purposes make the fattening of hogs
a hazardous undertaking. On the oth
er hand, alfalfa hay Is grown in abun
dance, and the pasture afforded Is
keenly relished by the hogs. Hence
the project farmers are limiting their
operations to feeder-hog production.
A co-operative live stock shipping as
sociation has been organized on the
Belle Fourche project to market the
hogs In unique fashion this fall. The
plan Is to secure carload orders for
these hogs so that they may be shipped
out In small train loads for delivery
to points east of the Missouri river.
The idea Is to have about fifteen cars
of hogs In each train, these ears being
loaded at Newell and Nlslnnd on the
project and to be curried to destina
tion, without Stopping for feed or wa
ter, within the 30-hour limit. Infor
mation is being promulgated among
the prospective buyers along the route
regarding the freight rates on a mini
mum car of feeder hogs so that they
can estimate accurately the gross cost
of such a load of quality feeders de
livered at their destination. The hogs
sold during the fall of 1918 ranged
from 10 to 21 cents a pound f. o. b.
cars, some of the loads being sold
above the market quotation and some j
of them under.
The Belle Fourche plan of market
ing feeder bogs should be of Interest to
other stock raisers and feeders In va
rious sections of the country, Illustrat
ing, its It does, a new method of feed
er-animal distribution. Handling
through a co-operative shipping asso
; elation directly from the producer to
the purchaser makes It certain that
I the buyer will receive the hogs at his
| station at a minimum cost for handling
lln transit. Furthermore, the fact that
: the animals come from a cholera-free
country is positive Insurance against
losses from that disease. If the hogs
are not exposed to Infection In transit
or subsequent to their delivery at their
now homes. Prospects are that In the
I future many South Dakota farmers in
j the eastern part of the state who raise
; considerable corn and make a practice
; of feeding the grain to hogs will rely
, to a certain extent on the animals com
ing from the Belle Fourche project
