Sept—The seperate |H*nce treaty 'Made in Germany’, al ready known as the Hardlng-Hughos- Wrltli treaty, negotiated by a sole re presentative of this government, acting 'under Instructions from the State De partment. will In* submitted to the Hen 'ate as .soon as Congress reconvenes | SeplenilK*r 21. Senator as Chair man of the Senate Committee on For- I cign Relations will, of course, have charge of it. This is tin* same Mr Lod ge who said during the Democratic ad ministration that a separate pence with jGeriuany would hr*"id us with lisi log dishonor.

I But while Senator Lodge objected to | President McKinley lielng in such a position with Spain, lie Ki*cms to have made no objection to putting President. Harding in that position with Germany The result Is tlmt the Meliorate treaty with Germany contains only these sec tions of the Versa Him treaty to which Germany could offer no objection and contains none of the sections which Germany regards as 'injustices' to her. The text of the separate peaee treaty as published can onlr In* iiiidersio>-J i-y comparing it with the treaty of Ver sailles. because the rights claimed un der tla* treaty are the rights set forth in ertalii s<*ctions of tJic Versailles trea ty. referred to by number, hut not giv en lexliiully In the se|M*rate treaty- Tills comparison also will show what is left out. In fact, the separate treaty ■ is merely the nrecptuiirc of a part of | the Versailles treaty. It is provided. however, that the Fulled States may (assent to other parts of the treaty If It spool Acuity consents to do so. Thus the door is left open for the ultimate raiilleation of the treaty of Versailles I except the covenant of the League of Nations which Is s|H*ci||cnlly repudia ted. j This Is the Arst time In the history i"f the world that any govcnnumciit claimed rights under a treaty, liiclml ing tin* right to enforce It, which It ■ has N|M*c!Acal!y refused to ratify.

This brush **s pec hilly oak. has a far greater food value for lM*ef cattle than native grass es. Cattle will thrive and grow fat on oak brush, they will stand In the shade and eat all around and as high as they ••an reach, and have to do little rang ing. whereas if they are on grass they have to cover a large area to fill them selves.' We have often heard settlers say that they were going to clear all brush from their farms; it might »*c well to heed the advice Mr Cnlwell offers and leave this Imunlfiful natural eatllo food.
