IN NATIVE WAR DANCES

and Carlisle graduate. Is proud of
his Indian blood and his tribal heritage
so proud that he will rarely employ tho

noon yesterday before a crowd of city of
flclals. Chief1 Lonebear beat the tom-tom. His
manager saye. he Is tho best singer In
the Shoshono tribe. His tribesmen Joined
in tho singing as they danced. After tho
dance Urothcra spoke.
Ho said ho wanted an education a long

schools. With another Indian he entered

running five miles in 27 minutes and 24

r.ongknlfo said he never Intended to go
back to his old ways, but would keep on
learning in the white man's schools until
he was equal to his white brothers.
Mayor Dahlman was lntroduoed to the

the jiucst Ions that people In every walk
of life are asking at the present time."
said W. J. Kennedy of tho agricultural
extension department of the Iowa State
college. In dWcunslne the beef cattle situ
ation and Its solution.
'In a measure, at leMU the question
may be answered by the application of
the law of supply and demand During
the last twelve years, our population has
Increased about 25 per cent, while our
supply of beef cattle has decreased over
30 per cent. These figures would not In
dicate any very Immediate relief to the
consumer. Tho end Is not yet. Next year
and each succeeding year for at least
threo years will see a much shorter sup
ply of bef cuttle than at tho present
time. This will be due to tho fact that
the present high prices for beef rattle
are causing thousands upon thousand
of cows and heifers to bo sent to the
slaughter house, which under ordinary
i clrcunvstanccs would and should be re
tained for bleeding purposes. It Is a case,
of killing the goos that laid the golden
ItliuKca Cat Dovyii.
Tlu ranges of the northwest, the west
and southwest, which In the past consti
tuted tho greatest feeder cattlo producing
territory In the world, have seen their
best days. They are carrying today Just
about one-half the number of cattle they
carried eight, ten or fifteen years bro.
Irrigation, dry land funning and tho more
general Introduction of sheep have driven
a large number of tho range cattlemen
out of business. Hven the corn belt states
havo fallen off from 2ii to 50 per cent In
beef cattle during the last ten years.
"In the past Iowa has been famous as
a cattlo feeding stato. True, we havo had
some real beef producers, but the large
majority of our men have been cattle
feeders, from now conditions will grad
ually change. Beef production will be
come a more and more Important Indus
try. With it will como moro silos, mora
blue grass pastures, a largely Increased
acreage of alfalfa, less soil robbing and
a permanent form of agriculture.

"By tho term cattle feeding, we mean
the fattening of mote or less mature
steers Tor tho market. These cattle may
be home grown, or produced on the
ranges of tho northwest, the west or tho
southwest. In the past tho majority of
such cattel havo con'o fiom tho rango

farms from four to twelve months, or long
enough to make them marketable, beef.
"The length of time and method of
feeding used depended ujkmi tho size and
condition of the cattlo and the purpose of
the feeder. Some men have followed dry
lot feeding, which was dono during tho
fall, winter or spring months. Others
roughed their cattle through the winter
months in the stalk fields And finished
them on corn and grass during tho sum

WRITES VIEWS ON IRELAND
For "Conscience Sake," the new book

Dr. Corkey has won national fame aa an
author of an unusually aggressive type.

Ireland. It Is without question his strong

"1'ntll wry recent years, bat little or to
attention was glwn to the amount of)

been a part of the rattle feeding bu.
ne.. He used to utHUe what the steer
wasted. With plenlv of thilft.x, light

"Such methods of (reding wero wane
ful of I lie com stalks. These were seldom
utilized. Thc weio either binned or
plowed under. With the tiitioducllou of
the silo came a method for the more
general utilisation of the entire corn
plant. Kven nt the present time ovot :
half of the corn stalks are really allowed
to go to waste. With the use of more
silos this waste will be gradually les
sened. "The most difficult pitiblcm which now
confronts Ihe cattlo feeder Is the source
of his supply of feeders. In former years
the ranges produced an nbundanco of
feeder cattle. This supply has fallen off
very rapidly In recent years. This means
that the cattle feeder as we knew him In
the past, must In a measure give way
to the beef producer.
' Beef production Is tho nil Important
question of the day. Iowa needs on an
average 1.000 bee' producers In each
county. Uach man to market about
eighteen or twenty good 1.000 to 1.M0
pound fat nnlmals each year nt JS5 to
J1(M per head, making a grand total of
from 173.O0O,0iT0 to IHXUiOO.OOO worth of beef
ench year. This would leave 10CUXM farm
ers for the dairy business. It would mean
the marketing of our crops in tho form of
meat and dairy products and would prove
a wonderful aid In the conrervatlon of the
fertility of our soil. It would mean ono
or more silos on each farm, thus the
utilization of our corn stnlKs. We would
then bo on a par with the good farmers
of England and Scotland and our land
would be paying dividends on from a
$200 to a 500 per ncro valuation.
"By lcef production wo mean the grow
ing and finishing of our own cattle for
market. This requires skill and good
management to Insure success. Haphaz
ard methods of breeding and feeding have
no placo on the farm of tho boef pro
ducer. Oood beef sires of the early ma
turing kind will be demanded. Corn
sllajrn, alfalfa and other palatable forms
of roughage will bo fed In conjunction
with com and nitrogenous concentrates.
The animal must weigh In the neighbor
hood of 1,200 pounds at from eighteen
to twenty-four months of age.
"The next question Is, how can this be
profitably done under Iowa condition.'.'
"It has been and Is now being dono in
England and Scotland on land which
rents from JS to $12 per acre. It Is now
being dono by some men In practically
all ports of Iowa. It Is a probtom which
each man must In a measure solve for
himself. In some Instances tho cows will
be milked and the calves reared on skim
milk and grain adjuncts. Others will
mako It more of a baby beef proposition.
Depend I! pon llrrrd.
This will depend upon the Individual
and the breed h selects, Where Here
fords, Angus or Oalloways are used the
calves will bo allowed to run with their
dams, or perhaps one cow may nurse
two calves. These calves will he pushed
right along from birth and marketed at
about 18 or 20 months of age, weighing
around 1,200 pounds. Where this method
Is pursued great enro must be taken In
the selection of low set, thick fleshed,
early maturing typo of sires. The calves
must ali be llnei nip fen so as not to

INSURANCE MEN TO ASK FOR
Insurance men nro practically agreed
that thero should bii In this stato a
separate office created, that of Insurance
commissioner. At present the ntalo
auditor is the ex-offlclo Insurnnco com
missioner. Thro arc only flvo states In tho union
In which this Is still tho case.
On the other hand there aro thlity
eight states In which thoie Is a separ
ate official who han authority In Insur
ance matters. Ho Is known by various
names, as "superlntcndont of Insurance."
"Insurance commissioner," "commissioner
of insurance," etc. In three slates tho
secretary of state Is tho man who tins
authority In Insurance, matters. In a
very few states tho treasurer tho
man who lookA after these things.
It Is contended here, however, that In
surance btislnons In Nebraska has grown
to such gigantic proportions now that It
cannot be properly looked after by the
state auditor aa a mcro side Issue to his
labors as atato auditor.
Since tho Insurance business has grown
to such proportions and since the Insur
ance commissioner has the duty of ruling
on all the securities that must be deHs
Ited with him, thero will be enough work
to require tho attention of a man reg
ularly, say Insurance men. The plan la
to mako the office of Insurancn commis
sioner an electlvo one.
Work along similar lines. One socks tho thiol' who steals money" or valuables;
the other is after the thing that steals health.
Every doctor knows that the insidious, subtle drug, caffeine, in coffee and tea
"gets away" with valuables that money cannot buy clear brain, steady nerves, reg
ular heart-action, sound sleep, etc.
That is why they often advise patients to quit coffee and tea.

Made of clean, hard wheat, Postum is a true

Coffee, Is such a secret worker that It
Is not suspected as the cause of sickness

to find out tho truth. .
A lady In Memphis gives an Interest
ing experience her husband had with
coffee. It seems that he had been using
It for some time and was p.n Invalid.
The physician In chatg. shrewdly sus
pected that coffee was the "Worm at the
.root of tho tree," and ordered It discon
tinued with Instructions to use Postum
regularly In Its plac.
Tho wife says: "We found that was
the truo remedy for his stomach and
hrnrt trouble and we would havo gladly
paid a hundred times the amount of the
doctor'a charge when we found how wise
his judgment was.
"Tho use of Tostum Instead of coffee
wa begun about a year ago, and It has
made my husband a strong. , well man.
He has gained thirty-five pounds In that
