WHY CATTLE KILLED
SAVAGES OF A POISONOUS
PLANT THAT CROWS ON
ROOTS ARE THE MOST DEADLY
Government is Taking Steps to Eradi

Timothy is Likely to Kill it Out by
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26. -The
losses to the cattle men in the western
states from larkspur poisoning ev
try year have been so serious that
the Government is making a vigorous
ffort to find an antidote for the poi
son, as well as to eradicate the plant
In the Gunnison National Forest,
Colorado, the losses to me stockmen
last season from larkspur were con
servatively estimated to equal almost
five per cent of the total number of
tattle grazed upon that Forest.
Its effects are almost immediate.
Death follows the eating of the plant
within a few hours. For this reason
remedies are of little avail because the
animals are generally dead before they
Experts from the Bureau of Plant
Industry, in cooperation with the For
est Service, have made careful and
painstaking investigations in the field,
with a view of lessening the losses as
far as possible, while several differ
ent plans have been tried in hopes of
tompletely destroying the plant.
Larkspur grows very luxuriously in
the early spring. On the Gunnison
Forest in June, 1908, the Forest offi
ers counted more than 1300 plants
n blossom upon a single square rod.
The plant seems to be more .poison
ous in hot, damp weather than in dry
seasons, and it has been observed that
when the ground is hard and dry, so
that in eating it the ttems break off,

lerding their cattle from such places.
As far as possible, these areas will be
ienced by the Forest Service. On
ether areas where it is not so plenti
ful the plants will be dug out by the
Forest rangers, and also mowed off
to prevent seeding again.
It has also been found that the plant
will not hold its own against certain
kinds of grasses, such as timothy. A
iew acres, sowed in timothy, are be
ing carefully watched and it is believ
ed that it is crowding the larkspur

If this plan is supported by good
evidence this season, timothy will be

and will be continued as. fast as funds
are available for the purpose.
Mr. J .C. Thomas of Crawford, Col
orado, made an experiment in feed
ing the larkspur some years ago to
determine, if possible, just what part
ef the plant contained the poisonous
properties. A yearling steer was fed
a large quantity of the leaves, with no
injurious results. A few days later,
the same animal was fed a quantity of
the roots and within ten hours it was
dead, thus justifying the suspicion
'that the poisonous matter was con
tained in the root.

agreeing to pay them.

New Phase of the Race War
CHICAGO, Aug. 26.-A dispatch to
the Record Herald from Springfield,
Andrew J. Gordon, negro, former
member of the St. Louis Detective De
partment, was arrested yesterday by
deputies on a charge of shooting Wil
liam Bowe, chief deputy to County
Treasurer James A. Hall, during the
recent riot in Springfield. Bowe is a
patient in St. John's hospital and pro
bably will recover. The arrest ' of
Gordon followed an investigation that
has extended over a week,
denied his guilt.
Bowe was returning to his home on
the night of the riot when he was held
up by a mob of negroes and robbed
of his diamond ring and $25.
Afterward an attempt was made to
hang Bowe, but William Farmer a
negro, made a, plea and the man's life
was spared. Gordon is said to have
fired a shot in Bowe's body as the
man was on the ground. When the
'lepnties went to arrest Gordon many
white residents assembled, They were
soon dispersed, although Gordon was
taken to the county jail where the
case will be probed by the special
