Vast Importance.
Nearly One-Half of Industrial Franco
and the Homes of One-Tenth of
the Population Behind
German Lines.
Washington, D. C. Tho Importance
of the flvo per cent of French terri
tory held by tho Germans Is strikingly
sot forth In a statement given to tho
press by tho National Geographic so
ciety. It bIiowb that whllo It 1b com
paratively Binnll in area It Is very
largo Indeed In Industrial and agricul
tural Importance. It says:
"Holding only about 10,000 squaro
miles of French territory, or less than
ono-twentloth of continental Frnnco,
the Germans havo behind their ad
vanced lines nearly one-half of indus
trial Franco and tho homes of one-tenth
of her population. Pns-dc-OnlaiB, Nord,
Aisne, Ardennes.Mouso and Mottrtho-ct-

or tho larger and most Important
parts, aro tho banner departments of
France. Hero aro tho mines, the foun
dries and factories, and tho dairies
nnd farms, which aro tho pride, tho
wealth and tho strength of modern
Franco. In this narrow strip under
German occupation, there Is produced
70 per cent of nil coal mined In France,
90 per cent of all of tho native-mined
Iron, and nearly half of tho republic's
output of manufactured articles.
"Tho iron and steel Industry of the
great ropubllc lies almost entirely
back of tho German trenches. Franco
stood fourth among tho nations of
tho world as a producer ot iron and
steel, with an annual production of
3.G00.000 tons of pig Iron and ot 3,100,
000 tons of ateel. This industry was
centered and contained in northern
Franco, for hero wero tho raw mate
rials. Tho Flemish coal basin, extend
ing Into tho Nord and Pas-de-Calals
whom 100,000 miners wero employed,
produced GO per cent of tho coal mined
in France, and, practically, tho coun
try's entire supply of fossil conl. Tho
Iron mines of tho Mourthe-et-Mosello
furnished 84 per cent of tho total
French output of Iron, and this re
gion was reckoned as ono of tho prin
cipal iron-producing regions of tho
"With tho French and Belgian Iron
and coal fields in their possession, tho
Germans would havo almost a monop
oly of tho Iron and steel Industries of
Europe. Germany is now second only
to tho United States In tho production
of Iron and steel. Boforo war con
ditions sot in, tho United States pro
duced annually 24,500,000 tons of steel,
Germany 12,300,000, Great Britain 6,
040,000, Franco 3,102,000 and Belgium
1,500,000. Germany Is third among
tho great Industrial nations of tho
world in tho production of coal, and
with tho Fronch and Belgian mines
behind her lines might easily equal
tho output of Great Britain, second
upon tho list. Thus, unusual Interest
attaches to tho small strips of foreign
lands back of tho Gorman lines.

He Is Perfectly Satisfied, and
Tells of His Neighbors Who
Have Done Well.
Walter Harris, formerly lived near
Jullotta in Warren townBhip, Indiana.
Ho now lives at Hussar, Alberta, In.
writing to his home paper in Indiana,,
ho says that tho failure is tho man
who always blames tho country. Ho
falls to seo his own mistakes, has
missed his calling and is not fitted
for farming. Tho two seasons Just
past havo been entirely different. In
1913 plenty of rain enmo in Juno and!
a good crop followed, but tho fall was
dry and but llttlo snow in tho winter
followed by a very dry summer, and a
short crop. Only thoso that had1,
farmed their land properly wero able
to meet expenses.
For example, last year tho Crow
foot Farming Company, south ot
hero, threshed from 1,250 acres 38,
000 bushels of wheat. One-half section
mado 26 bushels, tho poorest of all.
This year on 1,350 acres thoy threshed;
nearly 26,000 bushels. Last year's
crop sold at 75 cents from their owa
elevator. What they havo sold of
thlB year's crop brought $1.00 at
threshing tlmo. Eight thousand bush
els unsold would bring now around;
$1.25. Tho manager and part owner
was raised in Ohio and farmed in
Washington several years. Ho and'
his wife spent last winter in Ohio.
She told mo a few days ago that tho
climato hero was much better than'
A man by tho name of George Clarlc
threshed 75 bushelB of oats, 45 bush
els of barley and 35 bushels of wheat
to tho acre. Ho had 15,000 bushels of
old oats as well as wheat and barloy
iu his gvmarles that havo almost
doubled in prico. Ho camo from?
Washington, whoro ho sold a large
body of land around $200 that ho
bought around $3.00 per acre. Ho thea
refers to a failure. A largo company
in tho eastern Btates, owning a largo
farm near Hussar pays its manager
$3,p00 a year. Tho farm has not
been, a success. Probably tho man
ager's fault Mr. Harris says' condi
tions are not as good as could bo
wished for, but on tho ending of tho
war good crops, with war prices, wilt
certainly change conditions, and it
seems to mo that the ono who owns
land that will raise 100 bushels or
oats, 75 bushels of barley or 40 bush
els of wheat is tho one who "laughs,
The above yields may seem exag
gerations to many, and are far above
the average, but you should remember'
that the man who falls is counted in
to make tho average, and there are
Instances on record hero that would
far, exceed the abovo figures.
Nor is grain tho only profltablo
thlng that can he raised here. There
are many flno horso ranches, some of
them stocked with cayuses and bred'
to thoroughbreds, and others import
ed from the old countries. They run
on the range nearly all the year. The
owners put up wild hay to feed them
if the snow should get too deep for
them to get tho dead grass. There
are several hundred in sight of hero
most of the time. Thero aro several)
cattlo ranches north of hero that have
from 500 to 7,000 head of cattle. One
man I know soTd $45,000 worth of fat
cattle this fall. Ho winters his cat
tlo on farms where thoy have lots or
Btraw and water, paying 75 cents a
month per head, or if there is enough.
