Submarine Commander's State
ment Confirms Theory Ger
mans Have Base en This
Side of Atlantic.
Washington. June 4. Did the Ger
nian wbmarine which raided Amerl
can shipping off the Jersey coast de
; stroy the missing collier Cyclops, or
did they capture her at sea, put aboard
a pme crew and send her to -Ger
. Out of the mysterious disappear
ance of the American collier, now
missinir three months exactly to
day, this question has been raised by
the passing remark of one of the sub
marine commanders to Captain Lowry
of the steamer Texel, that the U-boat
had been on the American side of the
: Atlantic for two months.
It is oossible. though not probable
natal experts say, that the collier
with her great , cargo of manganese
and some 300 souls might have been
"spurious verzenkt" sunk without a
trace after she left Barbados, where
she had put in for fueL :-
It is more likely, however, they say,
that the Cyclops, sailing homeward
some time after March 4, when it
cleared from Barbados, was met at
night by submarines, possibly by pre
arrangement. It would then have been
easy to send an armed crew below
to .quarter where most of its men
were asleep and take possession of the
ship. ;" '
The statement of the U-boat com
mander that be has been in American
water two months adds to the theory
of those who have maintained that
there is a submarine base on this side

ON WASTE FROM
Atlantic, Iowa, , Farmer Sells
Steers on South Side Show
. ing 350 Pounds Gain in
The spirit of economy and the
dearth of feed for his cattle led J. W.
Cuykendall, prominent stock feeder
and business man of Atlantic, la., to
experiment with the feeding value of
the waste from .his sweet corn can
ning factory, which up until two years
ago wa considered practically a dead
loss, it was sold by the ton at a
very low figure, and what remained
unsold was dumped into the river.
Mr, Cuykendall constructed a wire
silo where the waste material was
dumped arfd began feeding it in small
quantities to his cattle. The results
were satisfactory, as shown by a load
of fine beef steers which Mr. Cuy
kendall sold on the South Side market
Tuesday. These steers were fed on
the sweet corn waste, together with
ground corn and cotton seed meal,
and showed an average gain of 350
pound since last August When pur
chased the steers averaged 750 pounds
and cost $7 per 100 pounds. When
sold they averaged 1.100 pounds and
brought f 16,10 per 100 pounds.
ihe wast from another canning
factory at Fremont, Neb., owned by
Mr. Cuykendall, was sold this year
for $1,000, where formerly it would
not have brought more than ?oO.
