The destruction of such stock
killing animals has a iliresct bearing
on the increased production and con
servation of the Nation's food sup
ply. Their control means that stock
and poultry raising can be conduct
ed with safety, and with this In view
the bureau employs a force of 175
to 300 hunters and trappers who
hunt these animals. They accept no
bounties from any source, all skins
of animals taken becoming tho pro
perty of the Government. Last year
the proceeds from this source
amounted to approximately $36,000.
During the year 30.G12 predatory
animals were taken. Including G56

Warning or tho atrocities, "horri

ly oflrial," that American soldiers
soon will be suffering at the hands
of Germany's Inhuman army, was
voiced In an addreaa hore Wedneaday
night by Major Orayaon P. Murphy,
formerly In charge of the American
Red Croaa work In Prance, who re
turned to thla country Sunday. MaJ
Murphy resigned from the Ked Cross
to Join the staff of General Purshlug,
says a New York dispatch.
"I cannot describe the
things (hat Germany has done In
women and children and the poor,
old suffering people In coUnrles
where she has set her drcudful foot,''
Major Murphy said. "Ilritlsh offic
ers told of scores of wounded Kng-
llsh soldiers piled In heaps and then
bombarded with band grenudes. It
will be but a short time before our
boys are going to suffer those same
things. You have got to build, and
sacrifice, no matter what It costs to
heat, that beast."
Muildlng up the spirit of the peo
ple behind the lines In Kurope Is the
great work of tho Hod Croaa, the
speaker declared. Contributors to
the lied Cross In this country have
thus become one of the largest fac
tors In the war, he said.
"Up to this day. Germany la vic
torious In this war." Major Murphy
continued. "Any peace that is made
on the basis of today's conditions
WOttld be practically a complete vic
tory for Germany and for the German
Idea Germany has lost nothing In
