Plan to Cut
Agreement Made by Farmers to
Reduce Supply Because of
LAST YEAR’S CROP IS UNSOLD
One Nebraska Farmer Shipped Car

Freight Bill of $416.58 and
The proposal to curtail corn acreage
In the West in 1922 Is likely to affect
Ibe price of food iwfore the end of
the year. The entire country is
Iteuvlly interested because if success
ful, it means an increase in the cost
of corn and meat, with a resultant and
sympathetic increase in the price of
wheat and bread. Nebraska Is not the
«rdy state In which the movement Is
gaining ground. lowa, Kansas. Mis
souri, Illinois, South Dakota and ail
the states of the great ••Bread Basket”
art* moving in the same direction.
Signs are plentiful throughout the
Middle West that far less (torn than
usual will be planted unless there is
an immediate and considerable lu
creuse in the price of that cereal.
Most farmers recognise that the
price of corn is not due to any com
bination of capital or a “conspiracy,’’
hut is governed solely because of the
law of supply and demand and they
are preparing to cut the supply.
Farmer Is Stung.
Nebraska farmer* are getting about
17 cents for their corn. Farmers in
states closer to markets are getting
a cent or two more. Two weeks ago a
farmer near Broken Bow. Neb.,
shipped a carload of corn to Billings,
Mont. The freight was $416.58. The
sidling price in Hillkwc $410.52
I’he farmer paid the difference, six
cents. He.had provided the Sand and
sited, planted and worked the corn

the railroad station and then paid out
six cents for all his trouble.

Will Reduce Acreage.
One big land company has 5,000
acres of land at Herman, Neb. Or
dinarily, this company plants 2,000
acres to corn every year. Here is
what one of the owners of the com
pany, as well as owner of the Omaha
Bee and one of the most prominent
business men in this state has to say:
“There is no doubt that if corn Is
not up to the cost of prod action in the
coming year, in a systematic or an in
dividual way farmers will decide not
to plant it. On our 5.000-aere farm,
not an acre of corn will be planted un
less the price goes up to meet the cost
of raising a crop. We have notified

Then things began to hap|»en
rapidly. Wound stripe after wound
stripe went on her sleeve. At Tours
a hospital was blown up. AH but two
persons in the building were killed.
She was one of the two. In another
case a piece of shrapnel broke her
finger, caromed and killed a man.
Fourteen other wounds came, all
while she was on the front, and then
the "fatal” blast when the trench hos
pital was blown to pieces. "Killed in

In the meantime American soldiers
dug her out of the ruins and took her
to a hospital, where she remained un

the hospital and was sent to the

FEEDING GARBAGE TO SWINE
When Collected Frequently and Well
Selected It Will Make Good
Quality of Meat.
♦ ** re P* re d b)' th* Unlt«d State* Department
More than 40,000,000 pounds of gar
bage-fed port, is produced annually
throughout the United States from the
feeding of table scraps and hotel
refuse. Heretofore difficulties have
been experienced In the economical
and satisfactory disposal of city gar
bage. The United States Department
of Agriculture points out that the
use of municipal garbage for the pro
duction of pork offers a suitable method
for disposal of these waste products
and has permitted the repletion of
our pork supplies at a low cost.
Garbage which Is fed to hogs must
be collected with reasonable frequency
and be free from tin cans, soap,
broken glass, ami other undesirable
or Injurious foreign materials. It is
desirable always for cities to make
garbage collections and then dispose
of it to individuals, associations, or
corporations on a contract basis, un
less the city operates Its own hog
Long-time contracts are likely to
be most satisfactory to aU concerned;
besides they effect the use of a better
class of equipment and better sanitary
conditions. The pigs or shotes to be
fed may be bought as feeders or may
be raised on the feeding farm. The
latter method gives much more satis
factory results. Methods of feeding,
handling, housing, and care may differ
considerably so long as the essentials
of sanitation and hog comfort are ob
Equipment for feeding should be
adapted to the type of garbage avail
able and to local conditions, climate,
and transportation. As a rule, raw
garbage is preferable to cooked gar
bage for the use of hogs. In case the
weather should be so cold that the gar
bage freezes, it is advisable to thaw It
before feeding. Generally the use of
grain as a supplementary feed for the
garbage Is not an economical practice,
but it must be provided when the
supply of garbage Is temporarily short.
Hogs which are to be fed garbage
should be immunized against cholera
by the double or simultaneous treat
ment. Thorough, permanent immuni
zation Is very Important because of the

garbage cans. Garbage-fed hogs show
no greater susceptibility to tubercu
losis*. pneumonia, or kindred diseases
than grain-fed animals. Pork from gar
bage-fed hogs is as good in quality as
that resulting from other feeds, and
the average garbage-fed hogs sell at
practically the same prices as ordinary
The garbage from more than 8,000,-
000 people is fed to hogs in cities
where municipal supplies of pork are
produced from waste food products.
If fed under suitable conditions this
garbage supply is sufficient to produce
approximately 80,000,000 pounds of
pork a year. Generally, it takes about
50 pounds of garbage to produce one
pound of marketable pork on the hoof.
The garbage should be collected at
least two or three times a week In
northern cities, while in southern cities
