this front. Again, shortly after tho
battle of Verdun started, the French
railroad which was to furnish many of
the supplies to the troops was de
stroyed. The French government, how
ever, had a macadam road 32 feet wldo
on which four lines of traffic, two In
either direction, were maintained. Day
nnd night 14,000 motortrucks carried
men and equipment.
The traffic never stopped. When a
hole was made In. the road, a man with
n shovelful of rock slipped In between
the lines of trucks nnd threw the rock
Into the hole, then Jumped aside to let
the truck roll the rock down. Then nn
other funn would follow his example,
and so on until the hole was filled.
Trucks that broke down were shoved
aside and repaired almost Instantly.
Had the French depended on their rail
road or on poor hlghwnys the Germans
would have won the battle.
There are few places in which good
roads will win great military victories
But there nre mnny places in which
they will win great victories in time of

economic or social occurs In tho Hfo

mining whether the community will go
lip or down, forward or backward. Tho
community with good roads is the com
munity that will deliver the goods

RATIONS FOR DAIRY CATTLE
Corn Stover Should Form Ono of

Cowo and Young Stock.
0?reparcd by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture)
Whllo corn stover nnd straw from
the vnrlous cereals aro not adapted
for producing tho Inrgcst How of milk,
they may bo fed to dairy cattle. Tho
amount to use of theso materials will
depend, of course, upon tho supply at
hand on tho farm. When nn nbundunco
of corn stover Is available It should
form ono of tho main sources ot dry
roughago for dry cows, young stock,
nnd cows In milk. To uao stover eco
nomically it should bo cut or shredded,
for then It will bo etfton raoro com

cows without limit, when they reccivo
In addition grain, silage, and some
leguminous hay. Under these condi
tions tho ordinary cow will cat n largo
part of from 0 to 8 pounds of stover
dally. For dry cows and young stock
tho proportion can bo greatly In
creased, caro being taken to bo sure
that there Is plenty of protein In tho
ration. In certain Instances corn stov
er has been cut nnd put Into tho silo
with the addition of plenty of water,
and the resulting silage Is of fair qual

partly so, corn fodder wijlch has been

convenient for feeding In the bnrn,
nnd cows will consumo more of It than
If fed dry.
Oat, barley, nnd wheat straw can
form a considerable portion of the
dry rougltnge for nil classes of dairy
cattle. . Straw Is used In much the
samo proportions ns corn stover, nnd
a sprinkling of thin molasses has been
found to increase greatly the palatu
blllty, causing tho cows to consume
inrge quantities of tho straw. When
feeding barley straw It Is advisable to
examine tho mouths of tho cattle oc
casionally, as tho beards of the bar
ley when very dry and stiff sometimes
cause painful irritations. Ryo straw
cannot be recommended for dairy cat
tle, because of danger from ergot and
on account of the very tough nnd fib
rous nnturo of tho straw. Buckwheat
straw has n very low feeding valuo
