HiUlce of tho ani Dial hiiBhanrfry dopartiiient at Iowa State CoDoge at tlio end of a woek'.s trip througli ropresontative sections of Iowa. On this trip, thanks to the co-oporatloii of the county agents, it was possible to visit many farms and talk with many men who are In close touch with the horse situation in their coiiiniunities. In one county visited, these experts estimated that there is one foal to every 2 5 farms, while in other coun-Uos tiiero are not even that many spring colts, but a ratio of only 1 to ■1. There are a tew more yearlings than foalii, but not enough for normal replacements on tho farms, to say nothing of the steady demand for i.ood draft horses tor work other than on farrns. Furthermore, not enough draft mares are bred tor next spring Coaling. Secretary Dinsmore reports a similar condition in Illinois and Oliio, wliicli witli Iowa produces the larger proportion of tlie draft horses of tho United States. Several buyers are searching the country for hor.ses, especially mares, both grade and purebred, tor exporta tion to France and Belgium. Tho tractors, according to a iitatenient made by some salesmen working on conunlssion, are not replacing draft horses on the corn belt farms, but on some farms are being advantageously used to supplememnt thom. This is especially true where there is considerable belt work to be done. Good draft geldings are very scarce and many buyers are paying from ?500 to ?700 a team for them. All good, sound mares of tho draft typo should be brod to lielp supply the draft horse shortage which we are facing. Will it Come to This? A Nebraska newspaper man says he believes that within ton years the ordinary glowing acco\mt of a wedding in the newspapers will exactly reverse the order from what it now is. Instead of printing nine or ten yards of this and that about tho bride and especially about her gown, saying that tho groom wore the "con ventional black," here is the manner that this pencil pusher expects to find the reports of the wedding of a few years hence written: "The bride looked very well in a traveliug dress, but all eyes were centered on the groom. He wore a dark suit that fitted his form porfoctly. In a dainty gloved hand hO'carrled a small rose. His curly iriir was beautifully done and a delicate odor of hair oil of the best quality floated down the aisles as he passed. The young people will miss him, now tliat he is married. He is loved for all his accomplishments, his tender graces and his winning ways. The bride commandsa good salary in St. Joe and the groom will miss none of the luxuries to which he has been accustomed. A crowd of pretty young men saw him off at the depot." Is a Backward Step Simix City Journal: The'Journal bolioves the people of Buona Vista and Sac counties will regret the action they have taken on hard surfaced roads. An almost solid block of hard surfaced roads counties, extending nearly half way across the state from the Missouri river show a spirit of progress and advancement that will make the retrogresssive action of these neighboring counties the more pronounced. But the right of self determination is the foundation of the hard surfaced roads law, and counties are accountable only to themselves for their course. However it is readily seen that a mud roads county located between hard surfacd roads counties, or adjoining them, limits the beneflts of the progressive counties by depriving them of the mutual advantages which come from intercounty trattic over roads like their own. The M.'niod)St and- Presbyterian church societies at Hawarden are considering plans tor uniting the two socieites into one. The Methodists have been contemplating a new build ing for some time and the Presbyterians had planned extensive improvements to their building. It was the conviction that neither building would be just what the future demands, and that both denominations together could erfjct a modern structure and carry on ajchurch program commensurate with the duties of a church in the present age, were they to unite and become one church. Action will be taken about the first of September by both churches and if successful the union will be completed by the first of October. The Record is pleased to note that Dr. Garner Parker, who left an extensive practice in Pocahontas in 1917, to answer Uncle Sam's emergency call for physicians, has finally received his discharge and will again take up hlB work here. Dr. Parker was attached to the hospital at Camp Dodge for sonle time, and put in about twelve months service over-sea'ä a part of tho'time being close up to the battle lino where he received much valuable experience.; For the present he will be located.in; the rear room of tho Byrne bullûlng.i formerly oceupled by J.

Manson, iowa Augus! 26-28 Day end Niglil Settling' labor Troubles fiincn (ho armistice tho country ha.s had more lal)or troublo.-, than ever before. The comuumity demands that thoso 1)0 setled liy arbitration. The result of the.se arbitrations, how ever, is often not satisfactory. If each party chooses an arbitrator and the two soloct a third, the entire responsibility is placed on one man. Too many mistakes are made. The collective wisdom of a greater body of men is needed, more representative of the whole community. , The flrst sympathy ot tho communi ty is apt to go to the workers, as the under dog, and ns people struggling under tho heaviest burdens and tlie closest margins ot subsistence. The utmost care should bo given that the got absolute justici;, and that they are fairly paid for all thoy produce. But where large bodies of worker» absolutely controlling the production or distrib\iti(in ot some necessity of life, are organized into monopolistic unions, they may cease to become, the under dog. They may exercise a tyrannical aud brutal power. They may gain higher wages than other workers entitled to equal pay, who are thus compelled to contribute to the pay ot this favored class. It tho railroad workers for instance, attempt to tie up transportation and stop all business and movement of l.lie necessaries ot life, the community should not allow itself to be bluffed. It must see to it that the transportation of the country is maintained. If the present body ot railroad workers will not submit to fai)- ai'bitrations, and give a reasonable time tor settlement of these dis putp^s, It Is time to tind some other group of men who will. It is a time to keep calm and appeal to people's reason rather than their passion. The mass of working people can be appealed to in that waj'. The extremists on both sides should retire and let tolerant people settle these difficulties. Alfalfa Makes Good Pastvtre Alfalfa is undoubtedly one ot tho most satisfactory and effective hog pasture crops grown in tlie Corn Belt Unlike .sheep and cattle, hogs have no tendency to bloat and can therefore be turned in on alfalfa at any time and without any preliminary feeding to get them accustomed to it. While cattle and .jheep are subject to bloat, these kinds of stock arc often pastured on alfalfa but usvially only after the second or third cutting ot liay. From a survey made by tho Iowa Experiment station, it.i.s evident that there is considerable danger of bloat when pasturing thoso classes ot live stock, nearly one-third ot the farmers who have pastiired crop having some dll'tlculty. Cattle and sheep should bo accustomed to alfalfa pasture gradually by turning them off and on before giving thom access to the pasture continuously, feeding well on hay each time before they are turned in. The danger of bloating on alfalfa pasture Is much less during tho late summer than In tho early sprin,g and when there is some blue grass mixed in the held. Orcalird Spraying Demonstration During the afternoon of September 2, 1919, there will be held in Mr. M. W. Linnan's orchard near Pocahontas, a meeting to show the results of spraying compared to not spraying during this summer. This work has bcu carried on by the Iowa Agricultural Extension Department and tlie Pocahontas County Farm Bureau cooperating. Tho total cost of spraying in this orchard was .5051 cents per tree. This includes the cost ot labor, material and depreciation on the pump. Everyone is invited to attend this demonstration to see the results of spraying and .see liow the work may be done In the' home as well iis in the commercial orchards. Come and see how you can And time to spray your own orchard and by Ajing so will have fruit to eat., otherwise you are apt to go without it. Fruit, especially winter apples, will be scarce this year, and the m^in reason is tiiat many of the or-c'liards have never been sprayed. Com« out to this domonstratlon meeting and talk this matter over so that you can make preparations tills winter to spray your own orchards next summer.
