Careful-; Comparison of the ' two
articles which lie before me at the

the writer at least, that there are
two different ways of dealing with
this very delicate situation. So now
I ask you to caef ulljr consider which

can see reveal any good reason why
its author's patriotism snonld be
questioned. - - , :
Now it happens that 1 know the
man who wrote that article and also
his wife. This-lady has, been very
successful ; working in what mriiy
regard as a barfj field. Since the
Red Cross drive in December she
has brought In twenty new members.
And when physically able she is al
ways on the job to assist at the aux
iliary. She and her husband have
taken out memberships in the or
ganization for every member of the
family, and this Includes three who
are away from home. They have In
vested in a treasury certificate. Lib
erty bonds, thrift and war savings
stamps, and have contributed at the
time of the Red Cross.' Y. M. C. A.
and Y. V. C. A. drive and have
bought "smileage books.' Recently
when the matter of putting an aux
Uitrry on a self-supporting basis was
up the man pledged 50 cents per
month, and since Mr.- Meyers has
made such an earnest appeal for
funds- he ihas decided to raise his
subscription to $2 per month. These
people bWe helped everywhere they
have fotjid an opportunity to do so.
I will also add that this man works
by the month to support ifa family.
Not long aro the man remarked that
he had failed once to help the Sal
vation army to get money to pur
chase their war ambulance, but the
woman reminded hint of the fact
that she had given 25 cents to that
call. :
In view -of these things. I hardly
think a disloyalty charge against
these people would stand unless the
Jury were hiased beyond all con
ception, t
I approached the task of writing
this fully conscious of the fact tliat
the successful treatment of such a
delicate matter requires tact and
skill in the use of language to a
very great degree, and for that rea
son I would have been glad if sonV
one fully qualified In that respect
had volnnteered to treat the subject
which I regard as of such Impor
tance that t should not be over
looked or neglected. I most sincerely
hope I have not bungled my English
to such' an extent as to prevent your

not otnerwise the fact that these
sentiments emanate from, one whose
heart Is full of love for Ms fellow
roan regardless of race, color or na
tionality, and whose soul is fired
witn the spirit of patriotism to such
a degree that be cannot conseient
louIy hold his peace at such a time
as this. So he has spoken In defense
of "Red Cross Rooster." who would.
I think, be entitled to write an arti
cle in bis own defense and sign his
name "True Blue JTied . Cross
Rooster. This, however, he refuses
to do, for such an act might be tak
en to Imply that others among his
reuow workers were sham instead
of true.

Permit me as the time approaches
in which the farmers are fisurinr on
what kind of material they wiil plant
or sow for their next winter's hay
for horses, to say. do rot sow oats
for hay. Quite a number of horses
have been lost this winter from feed
Ins oat hay. They had quite an pi
demic from feeding- oat hay In Ot
tawa, in. Professor Rotanv lu II.
Panmiel of Ames. Iowa, took the
matter up and found that some of
the symptoms displayed In forage
poisoning can scarcely be differen
tiated from artificial intoxication in
duced In horses as the result of
bacillus .botulinns , Intoxication, as
originally pointed out by Buckley
tnd Shipper! of the bureau of ani
mal ipTustry. The report can be
foundJin the journal of tf.e Ameri
can Association, December 27, 1913.
given by A. J. Stiles in order, as I
understand it, that we mirht know
how the horse felt under Its Influ
ence, for ne (the horse) cannot tell
us. Sq we will let Mr, Stiles tell us
in his own words found in the Amer
ican Journal of Veterinary Medicine,
March, 1918. This is what he says:
"Vertigo and nystagmus developed
a few hours after eating. In a star
tling degree. , The car (In which I
was beins taken to my house)
seemed to be ascending an endless
spiral, the stairs made circles in the
sky. and th houses by the wayside
reeled. ( The lighted doorway of my
house seemed to approach and sur
round me as I was carried in. My
bed for the moment presented itself
as a vertical surface which I couid
not conceive to bn a resting place.
Whenever I opened my eyes on this
day or the next the impression of
gyration (or revolving in a circle!
of the room was appalling. To turn
my head even very slowly from one
side to the other broneht an acces
sion of the overpowering giddiness.
Eight days fr he 'beginning of
he attack the nvstagmus became
limited to momentary onsets, but In
its Mace I became aware of a pe
culiar diplopia for double vision.)
The Image of one retina was not
merely displaced from the position
of its fellow, but. was tilted about
15 degrees from parallel. The fan
tastic diplopia gradually gave place
to the familiar variety and this oc
curred less and less often as my
convalescence proceeded. From this
aate my, recovery pursued a course
which was dishearteningly slow but
free from any setbacks. Among the
nerslstent symptoms were the visual
difficulties mentioned. The left pupil
was usually smaller . than the right
md I thouKht I detected a slight
failure to relax accommodation with
the left eya."
I am sure after reading the above
no one would want to snbject his
horses to undergo such, feelings when
It can be avoided. If any one should
persist in feeding oat hay or straw
f might say the department has pre
pared a serum for this condition of
the horse, and it can be had I think
from Univeristy of Illinois. A. J.
btlles, as y understand, drank the
tea or juice made from the oat hay.
