SAVING THE RANGE STEER
t'slnar Hypodermic yrlnae to Offset
Effect of Poisoned
An Interesting experiment Is being made
by the energetio forestry division of the
United State Department of Agricul
ture which may have a direct bearing
upon the high cost of living, and will
therefore, be of importance to every
citizen who Is affected by that preratng
problem. The scene of the experiment
is the broad cattle range of the west:
the operators are forest riders who could
be spared from their woods and moun
tain for a br',ef term of service in the
valleys or plains; their wea'pon Is a small
hypodcrmlo syringe and a small bottle of
chemicals, and the subject of their
operations Is the $40 steer who hasn't
enee enouph to leave poisonous plants
It Is broadly stated that at least one
twentieth of the cattle bred on the open
range never come to the marketable age.
If this be true, and this enormous lose is
preventable. It is easy to see how million
of dollars are added every year to the
people's meat bill. The more common
causes of loss of stork are extreme of
weather (great drought or excessive
storms), predatory animals, diseases and
poisonous food, and of these by far the
most deadly la the latter. Ay the others
may claim their Isolated or infrequent
victims, but the poison plants claim theirs
by hundreds cases are known where half
a herd have perished in a night
The campaign against the menace Is
naturally beset with many obstacles
Where the poison areas are small they
may be fenced In, or warning placards
may mark 'the boundaries of the danger,
and the cattle owner and herdsman can
protect themselve. On the open ranges,
however. uch precaution are obviously
impossible. Hence the experiment re
ferred to. The rangers are Instructed
In the diagnosis of the symptom of the
afflicted beast and In the administration
of the antidote. The latter Is declared
to be efficacious and the experiment, as
tried near the Canadian border a short
time ago, has been pronounced a success.
The cowboy-foreeter 1 accordingly likely
to become a fixed institution, and while
