farm flocks, acquired at excessive
prices during tho 1010 nnd 1920
boom, hnvo been thrown overboard
regardless of prices.
How tho sheep population of tho
pastoral states has shrunk during
tho pnst ten years Is Indicated In
tho caso of Wyoming which rnnkod
first In 1900 with 6,307,101 head,
but by tho now census bad only 1,
832.2C5. Montana, credllud with
5,380,740 sheop In 1910, dropped to
2,022,919 In this consus which
credits tho entlro country with 34,
984,000 hoad In 1020, compared
with 52,44,7,801 ten years previous
ly. Somo of thoso days tho surviv
ors of tho liquidation period will
find thomselvcs in possession of
highly romuncratlvo proporty, as
tho wool markot will eventually
omergo from Its present comatoes
conditions and tho lamb markot Is
making n dally display of virility.
Tho abovo Is a ramarkablo stato
ment and ovory sheep man who
roads It should stop and think.
Whero will our mutton Industry
land If this rnto recession goos on?
A loss of 17 Vt millions of sheep In
ton years, Just about CO por cent,
Is beyond belief. Thoso govornmout
tlguros aro homo out by prlvato
statistics. An outfit which tho writ
or looks aftor had 112,000 sheep In
1910; today less that 50,000 hoad.
Tho dry farmer took up tho raugo
and tho sheop dlsappoarad? What
will bo tho rostilt? As tho abovo
paragraph states, a band of owos
will bo wondorful proporty wherp
you have tho rnngo nnd equipment
to handlo them. A lamb on tho
markot tho past fow days has been
worth moro than tho owo which pro
duced It on tho rango. At present
sheep aro below tho cost of produc
tion. With 18-cont wool and lambs
nt 7 to 11 cents n pound, according
to quality, It Is n physlcnl Impossi
bility to ralso thorn at a profit. Tho
wlntor ot 191920 and tho terrific
doflatlon In prices ntampcdod us.
Wo nro, however, seeing daylight In
this business. Thero Is already a
scarcity of flno wools lu sight; thero
Is a good domand for fat lambs;
contldonco Is returning lu our tnxtllo
Industries. It looks as If tho silent
strlko against high prlcos of cloth
ing Is reaching an end.
Shcopinon, stand fast; hold on;
trim your oxpenses; got back to
