STANDARD OIL COMPANY (An Indiana Corporation) Farmers, Attention! The Missouri Farmer is opposed to the adoption of the Single Tax Amend ment which is to be voted upon in November, and which, if adopted, would throw practically the entire burden of taxation upon land owners. Never in the history of Missouri has a measure been proposed which so vitally affects the interests of the farm er as this one and it therefore be hooves every land owner- to inform himself in this matter as speedily as possible. In the May issue of the Mis souri Farmer Geo. B. Ellis, the editor, takes up the proposed amendment and shows how unfair its passage would be to the farmers of this state. Mr. Ellis is the Ex-Secretary of the Missouri State Board of Agriculture and there are few men of sounder judgment anywhere upon matters which concern the farmer. The subscription price of The Mis- j souri Fanner is 50c per year and by j subscribing now you will be kept in close touch with the discussion of the 1 above question. This splendid paper conies from the home of Missouri's great Agricultural College and one of its objects is to keep the farmers of the state in close touch with this in-; stitution. It is the highest class farm and stock paper Missouri ever had and should be in every farm home in ' the state.

The Hahcoek tost, which shows the amount oMniLtei'fat. .in. ni')k,. Js important in the selling of cvpv.'u. Ami it is wise for every dairyman to know what per cent of fat li.is co-.vs give. However, according to Professor C. H. Kekles or the University of Mis souri Dairy Department, it is far mora important to know the amount of milk the cow gives than the per cent of fat in her milk. If a cow gives only a few pounds of milk, no matter how high she tests, she will not he profit able. And if a cow gives a very large amount of milk she may be profitable even with a low testing milk. The simple way to keep a record of the production of each cow is to have a pair of spring balances hanging in the milk room of the barn, or the place where the milk is strained into cans. If the buckets are all the same weight, this balance, may be set so that it will read the weight, in pounds of milk, subtracting the weight of the pail. If a sheet is tacked up on the wall adjoining, it is but the work of a moment to record the weight. At the end of each month these may be add ed, and at the end of the year each cow will have to face her record. If it is a good one. she will be saved aB a breeder. -but if it is not enough to pay she should be shipped. After keeping this kind of a record, the Babeock test may be applied to find how many pounds of fat each cow has made. V While there may be no greater nu trition in a certain feed added to a dairy cow's ration than in the food she has been accustomed to, still, it is a fact that a new food adds to the pala tability of the ration, which is nearly always healthful. -.V. yr- l',1,. iter !

So ' SENATOR WARREN IS FAVORING SON-IN-LAW Senete by Vote of 27 to 24 Decides to Reduce Major General Wood Frcm High Position Charges of Graft Against Senator. Washington, June 11. The confer e ue report on the army appropriation b.U. constituting one cf the most re-::.a:-kable pieces of legislation ever ;i;-o;iosed iu congress, was adopted b the senate by a record vote of 27 to 21. The report is yet to be acted upon by the house, where a terrific fight is scheduled to take place ever its adaption. If it is approved, Maj. Gen. 1 t. T.-.ir.i Wood will be deprived of his ;.o.-::K;n of chief of staff next March. ;mv. i:. oliicer will be eligible to that nii'ioir.unent unless lie has served ten ...us below the rank of brigadier gi hera!. To Get Rid of Wood. 1; is charged that the plan to get ri.i of Wood is the outcome of the row which resulted in the enforced retirement of Adjt. Gen. Ainsworth. Yod preferred charges of insubordi- far communication has been impossii;iiion against Ainsworth, which were ble. It is believed, however, that both cutters have proceeded on a mission of relief. The secretary of the treas ury was informed of the urgent need of assistance. Chemists here, upon analyzing the volcanic ash which is descending all along the coast, say that it contains sulphuric acid. This explains the many compaints of headache. Villages in Danger. Seattle, Wash., June 11. Definite news is anxiously awaited of condi tions along the shores of Sheiikcf strait, where Katmai volcano has been spouting ashes and hot stones over the prosperous fishing villages and the agricultural land on Kodiak. Afognak and Raspberry islands. Since the eruption begun Thursday afternoon there has been a constant hail of ashes and stones over a wide area, the finer particles having been carried by the wind as far as Sitka, 700 miles east of the volcano. Communication Still Blocked Dense clouds of smoke and ashes have turned day into nigSt through out a radius of 300 miles from Mount Katmni. The unnatural darkness and the stilling volcanic dust that fills the air combine to make navigation in the affected area hazardous and it will be difficult for rescuers to reach the fishermen and cannery employes along the shores of Shelikof strait while the volcano is iu action. In spite of the peril, the revenue cutter Manning already is groping her way toward the northwes:e:n shore of Kodiak island. The Manning is equipped with wireless, but the at mospheric conditions impede communication. sustained by Secretary of War Stim son. Ainsworth was suspended and replied by retiring. Ever since that time the friends of Ainsworth have been planning venge ance on Wood. Prominent among them has been Chairman Hay of the house military affairs committee, and a member of the conference commit tee. To him is traced the origin of the provision relating to the chief of staff. Charges Against Warren. Other charges involve Senator War ren, whose son-in-law, Brig. Gen. John J. Pershing, now commanding the department of Mindanao, will be one of the small number of officials eligible to the position of chief of staff under the proposed restriction. Senator Warren made no reply to these insinuations, except to say that he would be willing to vote for a resolution making Gen. Funston chief. The opponents of the proposition ac cepted this as a shrewd bluff, in-as-much as it could not 'be done. Senator Warren was also instru mental in having the government pur chase an expensive maneuver ground at Pole Mountain, Wyo., which is said to adjoin his sheep range. This was to be used for combined maneuvers of the regulars and militia, but the lat ter body is objecting to the plan on the ground that it will entail a use less expense of $20,000.
