Tho uso of gas in warfare has been
proven vory successful In tho last Eu
ropean war. At first it wna used In
the form of a cloud attack, but this
proved unsatisfactory ns It was neces
sary to have tho wind blowing In tho
desired dlroctlon. This difficulty was
Boon overcomo by tho Introduction of
gna bombs and shells loaded with gas.
By this method gas can bo placed In
any desired plsco without regard to
Tho two kinds of gas most com
monly used nro phosgene and
chloride.1 Although' many other kinds
have been used theso were among the
first used and are tho ones that have
etood until tho end. Gas to be effec
tive In warfare'' Tatist bo cheap. It
must be in 'abundance' or abundance of
raw material for Its manufacturing.
It must bovhcavler than air so as to
lay close to the ground and penetrato
the trendies and tiugouts. It must be
easily obtained so as not to require
much labor or transportation. Lastly,

should gradually bo substituted for

Too many farmors do not rcalito

think that becauso tho fat has boon
removed, a much larger quantity of
milk should bo fed. As n result; tho
calves are often overfed. Shelled
