Ideal Day Enjoyed by a Large Number
From Various Parts of Country
Fine Oration by Hon. N. J. Sin
nott Baseball, Fireworks
The weather seemed to be
made to order for the Fourth and
there was a largo number of vis
itors in Burns to participate. A
"number" of people were in from
other towns and this was hardly
expected as there were a number
of celebrations, one at Harney,
Drewscy, Narrows and Lawcn.
The first few innings were a lit
tle slow, but the boys finally got
down to good work and it proved
very interesting and close, and
was won by the Regulars by a
score of 4 to 5.

Tho Scotch and English far
mers of Canada have alway main
tained a reputation for produc
ing heef of excellent quality, and
at the minimum feed cost. It is
gratifying to us, therefore, to
find such a hearty endorsement
of the methods we have ndvocnt
ing for the past few years as
thnt given by an old and success
ful cattle grower at n recent con
vention. Ho said:
"While proper feeding is im
portant, yet it will accomplish
nothing without being supple
mented by a judicious and gen
erous system of feeding, such as
will furnish the animal with such
full and appropriate rations as to
insure a steady and continuous
growth from tho timn the animal
is dropped until it is ready for
market at as early an ago as pos
Early maturity offers tho only
safe system of profitable beef
production; when thd animal is
young and immature its diges
tive and assimilative functions
are most active, and when wo
know that tho waste in tho ani
mal's system is much less during
tho young and active stage of
growth than when tho animal
comes nearer maturity, it be
comes evident that the earlier
wo can get ournninials ready for
tho shambles tho greater will our
profits be. Every practical feed
er knows that there is no mys
tery in tho growth and rearing
of animals; every pound of addi
tional weight placed upon the
carcass represents so much food
and it is certain cost to the owner.
In fact, whether the animal is
kept stationary, increasing or
decreasing in weight, it is cost
ing the owner so much every
day, so that the only way in
which we can be paid for the
food consumed is through the in
crease obtained; hence the great
folly of allowing our young nni
mals scant nourishment and in-
sufficient shelter during the win
ter and keeping them on the
pasture during the summer.
Such a system will not only re
tard their present growth, but
it will also contract their diges
tive system as to render them
unable to make the same good
use of their food while they are
being fattened for tho market.
If we would follow the proper
system of growing our beefing
animals this business of stall
feeding of cramming our beef
ing animals with very heavy ra
tions of meal during tho fatten
ing period is a mistake. All
through my talk I havo used the
term neeigrowcrs, anu it wo
would handle our business as we
should, wo must grow our beef
animals rather than fatten them;
this is the only wny in which wo
shall everbeablo to furnish high
class beef, and tho young grow
ing nnimal should be in condition
almost ready for tho butcher at
any time. Wo hear much nowa
days about prime quality of meat,
or what is called marbled beef
that is, beef with tho fat deposit
ed in tho lean tissues of tho meat.
bear in mind that wo cannot
get that kind of meat by feeding
tho animals one day and starv
ing them the next. That is not
the way in which this desirable
condition of carcass is brought
about; neither is it obtained by
keeping our young animals in a
half starved condition for tho
first two and a half years of their
lives and forcing them for all
they are worth for the next four
or five months, Tho only way
wo obtain this fino quality of
meat is to nourish tho calf well
and never allow it to loso its calf
flesh, but keep it growing and
thriving in such a way as to on-
ablo it to begin to doposit fat in
the lean tissuo from tho start,
and thus grow tho fat as the ani
mal Is developing. Tito finishing

to permit ripening before the

"Tho mnkc-up of tho tomato
