Good Stock Pays
TO WISE BREEDER
- ' . ) r...
By R. A. Ward j j
Mf there ever was a time when
one should enter, the pedigreed liver
stock business, that time Is rjghl
now. The s present financial situa
tion coupled wHh thwouth of abt
year in Montana, and. Wyoming:, knd
the drouth of the previous years in
the Southern states has struck jthe
livestock industry a body blow, from
which it will be a long time recov
ering. ' . j I . '
Recent surveys ' taken amongst the
bankers of Idaho, Wyoming and Mon
tana and some of the more central states
indicate 'that we will go into the winter
feeding season with" 25 per cent less
livestock. than we have wintered in many
years. The seriousness of the situation
has been brought to the attention of the
government and the banks have com
mittees and delegations of livestock men,
packers and country bankers, but there
Is little that can be done to remedy the
BATIKS CITE AID
RtaHitf how that the banks of the
western United States are supporting
the livestock- industry to the limit of
their possibilities. At the Federal Re
serve here, in Omaha and Minnesota,: it
was shown that the banks are support
ing more livestock loans than fn propor
tion to all other lines of essential indus
tries. The' present unfortunate condition can
perhaps be attributed to the relentless
working of the law of supply and de
mand, cotlpled with a too liberal use of
credit in some Instances and poor busi
ness on the part of a comparatively; few
stockmen. Apparently, the livestock In
dustry will be. -purged of that class of
: stockmen known as "in and outers,"
men who went into the cattle and sheep
business, when cattle and sheep prices
were high and then out when prices
were low. Of course, this purging proc
ess undoubtedly has taken with It many
good, reliable, men, who have been; un
able to hang" on although they realise
full well that is the best course to pur-
sue at the present time,
GOOD STOCK PATS i
Viewine the situation as a whole,! one
is impressed that wifh few exceptions,
thqse men breeding the beBt classof
cattle and sheep are in pretty good
shape and have suffered less in pro
portion than those stockmen who have
been content to run Just "stock" with-
out paying much attention to the breed
ing end. As a general rule tne men
handling pure bred or high grade Hive
stock on a commercial scale are better
business men than those - who are Icon
tent with any kind of, an animaL
Whether this better business ability has
been brought about by the breeding of
good livestock : or whether good busi
ness men, as a matter of -sound judg
. ment selected this type of stock to work
with, cannot be stated here. ' - A 1'
v This much, however, 1b true. The live
stock business is one of the soundest! and
most basic of our Industries In times
of crisis', such as after the Civil j war
and after the. other panics, through
which we have passed, it has always
survived and the livestock breeder breed- j
Ing pure bred, livestock has enjoyed
remunerative returns. . .
CONDITION IS CRITICAL j i
At the present time the business is
passing through a very difficult periods
Livestock prices are low. Some breeders
who have extended, themselves beyond
wise limits are being forced to sell.
, There are many opportunities' to pur-
chase some of the very best foundation
stock in the United States at reasonable
figures. This is, perhaps, 'more particu
larly true of the pure bred sheep busi
ness than of the pedigreed cattle indus-
' try, on account of the fact that in addl
, Uon to the difficulties encountered by
cattle men, the sheep man has -'had to
contend with absolute stagnation in the
wool market. At the present time one
. of the very best sheep breeding plants In
the United States, a ranch that has as
sembled at the expenditure of thou
.; sands of dollars one of the greatest
collections of ; breeding sheep In i the
. world, la being announced for sale and
- the stock is being offered at ridiculously
. low prices, when tho i quality of breed
ing of the animals; 'Is taken into con
sideration. The careful observer of the
livestock market will from time to time
see other. opportunities when-jjure breed
ing animals can be purchased at low
prices. It is our belief and the belief of
those perhaps who are In a much bstter
position to know that, the present unsat
isfactory condition lis only temporary.
The darkest day Is just before the dawn.
.Ahead of us is countless-ages,, when
pure-bred livestock (will be In great de
mand. They day of, the scrub and non
descript Is passing, fin fact, it Is nearly
" over; and the young man who has con
templated entering the livestock bust

wouta ao wen to go in now.

Now Is a; good time to tune up the
Incubator and get it In first class shape
for an early batch of chicks. "It's the
early bird that catches the worm" and
it is also the early hatched chick that
lays the high priced egg. Have the in
cubator 1 ready and then plan to get
some good fertile eggs of a good laying
strain. Planning ahead will save much
valuable time later on.
The Pacific Poultry Producers' asso

no extra added to the consumers' price.
If the best results are to be expected
from the poultry flock, the buildings
must not be allowed to become overrun
with. 'mites. .Mites are more troublesome
and more harmful than lice. They do
not live upon the birds like the lice, but
during' the day hide in the cracks and
crevices of the roosts and walls of the
house and at night they come out and
get upon the fowls. They suck the
hen's blood, and If allowed to become

The Divine decree against the wickedness of-mankind has rone forth, and
who shall escape? Judgment has been -pronounced against men an nations

vials, filled with the wrath of God, are abroad in tha earth (see Hev. chaps. It

prophets have foretold. (Pearl of Great Price, p. 44.) The word of God cannot,
return unto Him Void, but must and shall accomplish Jits holy purpose. (See
Vital questions touching every soul are these: Has the day of possible
escape already passed? Is there no way of averting tha impending plagues
One ot the attributes of God is His unchangeablenesa, for with Him there
"is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." (James 1:17). "For I am the
Lord, I change aoU" (Mai. 3:6). "God Is aot a mas, that he shoald lie I

And in accordance with Hts Immutability of purpose. Ills unchangeable

pronouncement, whether of proffered salvation or threatened condemnation. Is
conditioned upon the state of righteousness or transgression.
He decreed the destruction of Nineveh, whose abominations were not longer
to be tolerated. - A prophet waa sent, who cried aloud through the streets of
the great and wicked city : "Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown."

destruction of the city. But no catastrophe befell. He was angry, for seem- I
Ingly his word had failed. Then the Lord reasoned with him, not without
rebuke, and showed that the city, once condemned, waa spared because ot the I
repentance and reformation of her people. Such is the Lord's unchaageable I
ness: for ho Is a God of Justice who hears, the prayers of the sinner and re
quites repentance with mercy.
Amidst the awe-inspiring glories of Sinal, Jehovah decreed that the sins of
the fathers should be visited upon the children (Eso. 20:5). Heredity demon
strates to this day the actuality of the condition specified. But Israel ignor
antly misinterpreted and wilfully misapplied that word of the Lord. They gave
to It a meaning whoUy foreign to the Divine intent, and assumed to find there
in excuse, if not justification, for their sins. Indeed, they balled It aa a very
comfortable doctrine: for In their evlt eyes It appeared to explain away their
own defects as Inherited weaknesses, for which they were not answerable and
front which they could not escape. They crystallised it into a proverb thus:
"Tha fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge."
But they were sternly rebuked: "As I H, salth the Lord God, ye shall aot
have oecasloa aay more to sue this proverb la Israel, Behold, all sDals are
mlaet as the sonl of the father, so also the soal of the sea Is miser the sosl

Yes this is a way by which the judgments of these days may be averted j
and that way Is the way of the Lord, whereby men through- faith, repentance
and baptism may receive the Holy Ohost, who shall lead them in .righteous
