FILL OF LIYE STOCK
IS ABSOLUTE LOSS
No One Is Benefited by the
Grain Bo Used; Concerted
Action Needed to Cor
By E. Z. RUSSELL.
Editor Twentieth Century Farmer,
It is a well known fact among live
Btock shippers that the custom at the
market centers is to fill all stock be
fore they are offered for sale. The
hogs are fed corn and are given water
to drink. Cattle and sheep are given
principally hay and water. Often it
it but a matter of two or th.ree hours
after this grain or hay has been fed
to these animals until they are slaugh
tered. Consequently, it is undigested
and of no value to them in the way
ot increased meat supply ot that par
There is an enormous waste of valu
able food in this process that seems
useless. This applies particularly to
hogs. Hogs in the yards are generally
given an tne corn tney will eat before
being sold and weighed. As high as
two to fifteen bushels of corn is some
times fed to a single carload of sev
enty or seventy-five head. All this
corn led to these hogs is practically
wasted. Under the present Kovern-
ment regulations, the packers are not
allowed to- use this waste corn for any
purpose and it is washed into the
Waste la Enormous.
Anyone can see that in this way
thousands of bushels of corn needed
for human consumption go to waste,
Prom a humane standpoint, there is a
certain amount ot corn that should
be fed to these animals, probably not
to exceed three bushels per car.
It would not do any good for any
individual, any one commission firm,
or the shippers, commission men or
packer to adopt the plan ot ieeding a
limited amount of grain as a fill.
There must be a concerted action by
all these different interests at all mar
ket centers. There would undoubtedly
be some objection from some shippers
if a rule of this kind were made and
enforced, but the net result to the
shipper would in the end be the same
or in reality would save him money,
due to the fact that he did not have
to pay for this grain that goes into
the sewer. This loss, as everyone
knows, if they will just stop and think
a minute, ii charged back by the pack
ers either to the producer in a de
creased pr.ee per iuu pounds in ine
average price paid for the hogs, or in
an increased price to tne consumer,
Cut Out the Waste.
The waste in the fill given to cat
tie and oheep is by no means that
compared to hogs, as very seldom
are cattle and sheep ted anytning Dut
hay. In our opinion, however, there
could be a big saving of forage if the
rule of cutting out the waste of corn
fed to hogs, as suggested, was ap
plied to the feeding of hay to cattle.
The reason for the fill is the fol
lowing out of an old custom. Why not
look the matter squarely in the face
and get at the facts? It fs foolish to
think we are fooling the packers and
getting m re net money from them,
for tlicv'know exactly the average net

McAdoo Well Pleased With

Secretary McAdoo was well pleased
with the reception and entertainment
he received in Omaha Thursday.
lfrom Belleville, Kan., he telegraphed
Commissioner Mauley of the Com
mercial club as follows:
"Thank you very much for your
successful, arrangements for my visit
to Omaha today. I enjoyed the lunch
eon at your club and was enthused
by the patriotic spirit displayed by
those present. I return to Washing

. Military Enthusiasm is
At Fever Pitch in Denver
General Passenger Agent Basinger
of the Union Pacific, back from Den
ver, reports military enthusiasm is at
a high pitch in Colorado. Around
the Denver recruiting offices great
crowds surge from early morning un
til night. Bands play, nags wave and
all day something is doing.
Many Omaha recruits are sent to
Fort Logan, near Denver. When
squads of these troops arrive, accord
ing to Mr. Basinger, they are met at
the depot by a band and committee of
citizens. They are marched through
the streets and loudly cheered and,
before leaving for Fort Logan, are
shown many courtesies.

MAKERS HOW TO AID
Tells Manufacturers How to
Obtain Maximum Results in
tion and Marketing.
Charles G. Ouiele of Lincoln, pres
ident of the Nebraska Manufacturing
association, read a memorial of the
Association of Nebraska Manufactur
ers to the Conservation congress
trinay morning, in part as follows:
Manufacturers are urged to adopt
the following suggestions: ,
first, as to transportation: i
"1. To notify railway companies of
all cars enroute to the factory, of the
name of the originating point and of
the date ot leaving such point.
I. lo use all possible alacrity and
energy in securing a speedy unload
ing and release of all cars.
"3. To give immediate notification
to the railway companies of all cars
being unloaded and when ready for
"4. To load all cars to full capacity.
and to double load and triple load
second, as to production,
"I. To nut the factory in the best
possible physical condition.
2. To consider, the distance from
factory as well as cost in the purchase
of all necessary materials.
i. lo increase the personal em-
ciency of every worker in the factory
bv education and co-operation on the
part of the management.
4. lo eliminate an possioie ex
S. lo institute and install adequate
cost accounting systems.
6. lo remove all dangerous tire
hazards on the property of the concern.
7. To make a physical survey of the
plant as to needs of Coal supply, raw
materials and labor, so that it will be
available for compilation when called
Third, as to marketing:
I. To make a survey of the present
and maximum output of each plant in
relation to consumption and the mar
i. lo concentrate the publicity and
selling efforts of each concern within
the least possible territory that will
provide a market for the present or
maximum output of the plant.
It believed that manufacturers
should strive for intensive rather than
extensive markets at this timet"
of whom expects to go to the front in
the surgical service as soon as Miss
Schaum is found capable of handling
his practice at home. "No, I do not
believe I will consider going into the
field hospital service myself right
away," said Miss Schaum. "I am,
however, to relieve a doctor here so
that he can go, and later if it becomes
necessary, I might consider going my
self." Miss Clay will leave Creighton
Medical college upon graduation to
take up work as an intern in a hos
pital in Detroit, Mich. There she
will specialize in children's diseases.
with tjie object of avoiding military
service before the permit will be
granted. Violation of the law is pun
ishable by fine not exceeding $2,500
or imprisonment not exceeding five
years, or both.
Grain Prices Take a
Decided Drop Locally
Wheat prices on the Omaha mar
ket were off 4 to 5; corn, 2 to i'A, and
oats, 2'i to i'A cents a bushel. Omaha
grain men contend that the decline
has been brought about by reason of
the government proposing steps to
control the price of all food supplies.
Wheat receipts were thirty-five car
loads and the sales were made at
?.802.85 per bushel.
Corn sold at $1.591.61, with seventy-one
carloads on the market.
Oats fetched 64fi66c a bushel.
Receipts were twenty-three carloads.

Meat ia the most expensive article
of diet, and the least 'necessary. Add
milk, cheese, fruit, fresh fish, to vege
table articles and you have a good
diet. The rheumatic should abstain
from meats, or eat very aparingly.
It ia a well-known fact that in gout
serious organic disease of the kidneys
occurs. Such scientists as tutcner,
Minkowski. Hans. Vogt and Reach
have shown that uric acid in excess
is retained in the blood when the kid
nevs do not help excrete this poison,
Uric Bcid retained within the body
is believed to be the preceding stage
or cause of Bright's disease. The ex
cessive use of nitrogenous food or
meats often increases uric acid.
Hieh living, intestinal indigestion.
constipation, disturbance of the liver,
frequent chilling of the body all re
sult in retaining within the body an
excess of uric acid.
The best way to overcome this con
dition and prevent rheumatism and
gout is to drink plenty of water, say,
a pint of hot water morning and night
with lemon juice squeezed into it,
and take Anuric (double strength)
three times a day. This can be ob
tained at any drug store. This is my
invariable prescription for the rheu
matic person, and it usually follows
that the rheumatic pains, the back
ache, such as lumbago pains In the
back of the neck or limbs, will disap
pear. This Anuric by its tonie ef
fect upon the kidneys encourages
them to greater activity, and thereby
the uric acid is thrown out of the
system. It is also well to prevent
constipation and that greater evil,
auto-intoxication, to take bending ex
ercises every morning, plenty of wa
ter between meals, and at least once
a week take a vegetable laxative.
