a long winter with little fear. If he is
situated so he can get green bone
whenever he wants it he need not wor

If grain is high, do not co to usinc
damaged food because It can be bought
at a less price. Better feed a smaller
quantity of good grain than a full feed
of spoiled grain. Do not keep on with
tne old articles of food at high prices
unless you have found you cannot do
better. Corn nnd oats have advanced

til ml Tis, of course, the enormous
iurchases of cavalry, artillery .and
mounted Infantry horses by various
European governments. The British
empire has been naturally our best
customer, taking as many as 8,000 head
out of the country nt one shipment.
Germany purchased large numbers on
ihe Pacific slope early In tbe year, and
be latest candidate for the favor of
American auctioneers was the Italian
government which first had n small
contract executed for plain artillery
animals and later sent nn enlarged or
der for both cavalry and gun horses.
In addition to tbe horses taken for the
use of John Bull in South Africa tens
or thousands of mules were also pur
chased with good British gold so that
not onlv should tbe export of horses
prove the largest in numbers, but also
that of mules.

not Infest or transmit the disease to
healthy cattle. The only knejj
by which tbe micro parasite that cans
es Texas fever can be transmitted from
diseased cattle to healthy ones is
through two generations of tho south
ern cattle tick. no
Tick free cattle never have Texas
fever as long as they are tick free.
Cattle with Texas fever have or have
bad ticks upon them. All cattle must
acquire Immunity after birth by having
one or more attacks of Texas fever.
Immunltv to Texas fever Is not inner
ited. Southern bred cattle have Texas
fever when very young (sucking calves)
and are usually but slightly affected by
tho nnimnl the more se-
vere the fever; tbe older the animal the
greater .the mortality.
All cattle north of tbe government
quarantine line ore susceptible to Tex
as fever, ns are all southern bred cattle
.Momi nn tinir fron farms and tick free
town lots. Immune cattld will lose
their Immunity if kept free of ticks for
two or more years. In hot weather
Tovnq fpver Is usually more acute nnd
fatal than In cool seasons. The best
time to bring northern bred or foreign
bred cattle Into Alnbama Is between
Nov. 1 and Mnrch 1. It is safer "to
bring young sucking calves into Ala
bama for acclimation tban cattle over
a year old.
Sucking calves (two to four months
nidi nnn 1m Rhlnned Into tbe south by
express, fed milk from n southern bred
nnd Immune cow and be made Immune
by natural tick Inoculations, with little
danger of loss.
One or two Inoculations with de
flbrlnated blood from nn Immune nni
mnl will produce n relatively safe Im
munltv to TexaH fever. The best asre
for Inoculating with deflbrinated blood
Is a year or less. The best time Is be
twppn Oct. 30 and March 1.
From 50 to 1)0 per cent of northern
bred or susceptible cattle die with Tex
as fever when turned Into tick Infested
pastures. Less than 10 per cent are
lost when made immune by the de
flbrinated blood inoculation method.
Kettle and Pot.
Tbe American Fancier eoes after
tome specimens of "modern noultrv
Journalism" for pulling the stock of
tnelr big advertisers regardless of qual
ity and says, "It Is even worse than
the miserable system that enables
breeders to sell birds on tbe fictitious
nnd Inflated value of a score card."
When a disqualified Cochin can win a
premium under the comparison system,
It seems to the writer that "the pot
should not call the kettle black." In
flated and fictitious score cardB, If there
are any such, are due to dishonest or
Incompetent Judges and not to tho sys
tem, as the American Fancier very
well knows, but for reasons known
only to Itaelf It prefers to charge It up
to "the system." The score card sys
tem cannot be thrown down by misrep
resentation nnd abuse, and that is
about nil that has been urged against
