In those countries whore It not yet known.
Art. 2. As It can not be doubted that the liberty of the press Is the
most powurful moans used by the protended supporters of the rights of
nations to the detriment of those of princes, the high contracting parties
promise reciprocally to adopt all proper tneasuros to suppross It, not only
In their own states but also In the rest of Kurope.
Art. S Convinced that the principles of religion contribute most pow
erfully to keep nations In the stato of passive obedience which they owe to
their princes, the high contracting parties declare It to be their Intention to
sustain In their respective slstes those measures which the clergy mry adopt,
with the aim of ameliorating their own Interests, no Intimately onnected
with the preservation of the authority of the princes; and the contracting
powers Join In offering their thanks to the Cope for what he has already
done for them and solicit his constant cooperation In their lows of sub
mitting the nations.
Art. I. ThMltutlon of Spain and Portugal unite unhappily all the

sidy on the part of the two empires of I'o.onn 000 of franrs every yoar from
the date of the signature ot this treat) to the end of the war.
In article ", the parties agree to "address themselves
with the shortest possible delay to all the authorities exist
ing in their states and to all their agents in foreign coun
tries, with the view to establish connections tending
toward the accomplishment of the objects proposed by this
treaty." It is signed by Austria, France, Prussia and
The holy alliance placed by force a Hourbon prince on
the throne of France, then used France to suppress the
constitution of Spain, and financed the undertaking. The
same course was followed in Italy. Senator Owen said:
The Holy Alliance made Its powers fell by the wholesale drastic sup
pression or the press In Kurope, bv untersal censorship, by killing free
speech and alt Ideas of popular rights, and bv the complete supresslon of
popular government. The Holy Alliance hating destroed popular gov
ernment In Spain and In Ual, had well-laid plans also to destroy popular
government In the American colonies which had revolted from Spain and
Portugal In Central and South America under the Influence of the success
ful example of the I'nitsd States. It was because of this conspiracy against
the Amerlrans republics by the Kuropean monarchies that the great Knglish
statesman Canning, called the attention of our government to It. and our
statesmen then, Including Thomas Jefferson, took an active part to bring
about the declaration of I'rcnident Monroe in his next annual message to
the congress of the United States that the United States would regard It as
aa set of hostillt to the Government of the United Slates and an unfriendly
act if this coalition or If any power ot Kurope eer undertook to establish
upon the American continent uuy control of any American republic or to ac.
quire nn territorial rights
The monarchies, having survived the French revolu
tion, buried their differences to perpetuate tyranny. If
thev survive the aftermath of the present conflict there is
little question but that they will again combine in self in

incident with tho Increase of popula
tion sooner or later would cause a
general upheaval in the industries
connected with leather. Infortunale
ly the average hwycr and cutter of
leather was not inclined to look be
yond the present. The great war,
howecr, has been pre-ed home to
hundreds of members of the various
branches of the trade that new con
ditions, worldwide in their seojie, have
so radically changed the snrly ami
production of the basic raw material
of the industry that old land marks
are swept away and new systems of
reckoning- are necessary.
I)eite our dwindling numbers of

not always realized as it should be
that the goat and not the cow is the

milliniM of inilea of earth's surface.
There arc more beef animaln in the
United States than in any other one
country, but not in proportion to
population and our cancity to pro
duce leather. We have more than
doulde the number of cattle contained
in the Argentine, and it is only be
cause of the fact that the papulation

Leather is one of the most impor

destroyed in immense quantities smee
August, 1IIM, when the conflict be
gan in Europe. The scarcity was he
ginning to be noticed before that time,
but the war ha made the condition
much more startling.
In estimating the shortage of
leather resulting from the decrease in
the rattle sumdv it is necessary to
consider the new uses to which leather
is put in our modern civilization. With
the develotment of the transconti
nental railroads we have become a
nation of traveler, and almost every
inhabitant owns a traveling bag and
a leather suit caco. During the years
that cattle have shown a decline the
number of horew and mules appear
to have slightly increased. Horses
have not increased in the same pro
lortion as population, but the de
crease is not anything like hh serious
as in beef cattle. The autoinohile has
demanded immense quantities j
leather, nnd while there is now eouiu
decline in the demand resulting from
the imMiKsibilitv of using expensive
leather for upholstery purposes, high
grade cars still carry leather in their
seats and cushions. It is onlv the
high cot of hides that has driven
manufacturers to textiles and imita
tions of leather.
i Sudan grass, both at the stution farm
and in co-operation with a number of
fanner throughout tho valley. The
results were extremely satisfactory
Two cuttings were obtained from
sced sown on J ray 5. The first cut
ting on the unirrigatcd plot averaged
from five to six feet high nnd yielded
at the rate of I77U jwnnds per aire;
while tho irrigated plot averaged from
seven to eight feet high, and product d
at the rate of 7703 jwunds jier acre.
.Many of the plants on the irrigated
plot were over nine feet high. The
second cutting, just before front, n
crnged three feet high nnd produced
approximately one and one-half ton-.
Ier acre. This hay was relished by
horses and cows.
Auother plauting was made on July
11) on land from which a urop of
wheat hay had just been removed.
This was grown on especially good
soil; the seed was 4anted in rows
and the land was thoroughly irrigat
ed. The crop w cut October '2,
when it was six and one-half feet
high, and yielded approximately three
and one-half tons per acre.
The seed shonhl not be sown until
the ground is warm ami dariger from
heavy J'roets is pt. The latter part
of April or the first of May is uf-
ficientlv early for the tirst plautmg.

drilled in with a regular grain drill
which would require fifteen to twn-1
ty-five pounds per acre. Since eaeh

quantity of seed u required to sow

On dry oil, and where irrigation is
not practiced, the seed can h sown
about the first of May. Where irri
gation is practiced a erof of grain
and vetch hay may be grown daring
the fall, winter nnd spring months,
and a crop of Sudan grass during the
summer months. While Sudan grass
is one of the greatest drouttl-resist-ers
known, our results show that it
will yield considerably more with ir
rigation than without.
In conclusion I should like to nd
viee every farmer in this valley to
plant at least a small quantity of Su
dan grass this year. It will prove a
revelation to most fanners. Tho seed

It is well known that alfalfa is king
of all forage plants on deep, fertile,
well-drained, moist soils. On coils
which will produce abundant ero of
alfalfa this crop is preferred to, Su
dan grass. Where conditions jtre not
fnornble for abundant crops of al
falfa, Sudan grass will prove the
most satisfactory forage crop to be
grown during the summer months.
