THE DEATH RATE FROM

IN THIS COUNTRY

by Dr. Oatchell, the Promi
nent Veterinarian of
the West Much
by the Horse
Residents of this country are
greatly indebted to Dr. Gatchell.
With the introduction of G & G
Colic and Distemper Remedy, the
thought of colic and distemper
put fear" in the horseman's breast,
but since the general use of G &
G, this feeling of fear has been
changed to smiles, until colic and
distemper are "linked with the
name of G & G as in the order of
father and son. Dr. Gatchell 's re
markable offer of one 50c bottle
of G & G Liniment, free with one

. Stat Game Fszm lOoMcL. ,
j Missouri's most costly experi
ment in the game propagation wag
terminated Monday. The state"
game farm was closed and the
land leased to a dairy man.
, The farm was opened in
when Jesse A. Tolerton, now a
banker of Springfield, was state
game and fish' commissioner under
Governor Hadley,- Tolerton , con
ceived the idea that the game sup
ply of Missouri could 'be greatly
augmented by the propagation of
English pheasants and Hungar
ian partridges. : It ,is declared
doubtful if there could be found
500 of the pheasants alive in Mis
souri and nothing is ever heard of
a Hungarian partridge. .
; Failure of the experiment has
been attributed to two causes, one
being the ruthless slaughter of
the pheasants and partridges by
hunters everywhere. The other,
and probably the correct version
is that neither was intended by
nature for the environment in
which they were placed and were
destroyed by hawks, foxes, mink
and other marauders.
About $60,000 was expended in
the experiment. The money was
derived from the sale of hunter's
license. Sportsmen . declared it
well spent, even though the exper
iment was not successful.
Speaker Clark Urges Adoption of
Washington, D. C. May 13.
Speaker Champ Clark took the
floor today, and strongly urged
the House membership to vote for
the pending rural-credits bill.
The Speaker called attention to
the fact that both the Democratic
and Republican platforms of 1912
promised the farmers of the coun
try legislation along these lines.
Representative Russell also par
ticipated in the debate. The bill
probably will pass the House
Tuesday of next week.
Representative Russell of Mis
souri urged the House to adopt
an amendment to the bill giving
the heirs of a deceased borrower
six months to take up or renew a
loan before foreclosure. The bill
allows only two months. Mr. Rus
sell told the House that the Mis
souri law srives the heirs nine
months' leeway. Chairman Glass

ANGERED BY SUSSEX CASE
qermans Feel That U-Boat Com
mander Deceived tne nation.
The Hague, May 13. Severe
punishment was meted out to the
commander of the German sub
marine which attacked the' Sussex
it is generally believed in well in
former circles in Berlin, although
no official report on the nature of
the punishment has been made
public. - "
This belief is based largely on
the indignation felt in Germany
over' the U-boat commander's de
ception. His report was implicitly
believed until the American gov
ernment presented conclusive evi
dence showing that the channel
packet was torpedoed.
In view of the evidence, Ger
mans feel that they were put in a
rather humiliating position. .It is
not overstating the case to say
that the submarine commander's
deception caused as much indig

Ottawa, Ontario, May 15.
Four Austrian prisoners of war
were killed and 15 wounded as a
result of an outbreak in the in
ternment camps at Kapuskasing,
on the Transcontinental Railway,
CO miles west of Cochrane, accord
ing to reports which reached the
Militia Department tonight.
Maj. Gen. Sir Sam Hughes of
the militia announced that he had
sent Gen. Logic, commanding the
Toronto Military "District, to the
camps to take charge of the situa
tion. ' ; . .
Details of the revolt are meagre
and Gen. Hughes deelined to dis
cuss it until he has received a re
port from Gen. Logic.
It was said at the Militia De
partment that for some time the
prisoners at the camps have been
manifesting a spirit of insubordi
nation to the military authorities.
Several days ago the unrest cul
minated in a concerted uprising,
the prisoners refusing to go to
work and threatening violence
against the guards.
So menacing did their attitude
become, it was stated, that the
guards were compelled to take
extreme measures and fire on the
The revolt was quelled quickly
and the latest report tonight was
that the camps were quiet.

in a rage. . .
As the day passed, he began to
think that perhaps, after all, he
had been rather hasty. So, as he
wended his way homeward, he
carried a small but interesting
looking parcel. - To . his amaze
ment, his little wife refused to
take the slightest notice of it
"Don't you want to see what
in my parcel, darlingt" he plead
"I expect I can manage to sur

coldly. " "
"Well." he said playfully, "it's
something for somebody I love

Improve Home-Cured Meat.
Don't let the cured meat get too
salty. The practice of leaving
the hams and bacon in the brine
or dry cure for two or three
months will always give meat that
is too salty to be eaten with any
relish. Two days for each pound
weight of piece will cure the meat
thoroughly so that it will keep all
summer and will usually make it
so salty that it will need some re
freshing .before using. Shoulders
fiat are to be used up before hot
weather can be cured in a consid
erably less length of time. Before
the meat is to be smoked soak it
iwo or three hours in warm water.
If it is too salty soak for a full
twenty-four hours and then send
to the smoke house. P. F. Trow
