To rid the country of noxious weeds would put agriculture forward most In calculably. An enormous amount of labor is In volved every year In the extermina tion of weeds.

The cornfields and cultivated crops gener ally, must be kept clean If a crop is to be produced. Of course, the farmer would want to till his soil whether weeds occurred or not. A soil that is not cultivated would not produce a re munerative crop. Hut the weeds have come to stay, and the farmer must till the soil to keep the weeds in subjec tion. It Is, therefore, Important that every Ormer should know something of the it methods of extermina...

There was a period during the first nif'nth r two of the great cor.l'.ict that the cavalry officers of t'e allium, detailed to the lTr,iwtl .'-lutes to secure animals for use on thf lighting front, made a brave effort to maintain their old standards. A horse had to weigh at least 16W) pounds, he so many hands high, lie free of blemish, both internal and external, have a showy foot action and show evidences of high spirit. But now all that sort of thing is of the past. Anything that can weigh up to 1000 pounds and walk on four ostensibly sound legs can get past in Hying colors. And for this class of animal the allied governments are pay ing an average price of $175 per head. Never in the history of Ameri can horse-raising has there been such a demand for animals as txists today. Bree...
