It is reasonable to expect Job was a patient man--but he nev- that the census included many of the er had the cholera get into his hogs smaller breeders having only one or more pure-breds and it would not be reasonable to expect these herds to average not more than ten pure-breds e/ach. If this were applied to each breed it woulr ineicate that there were over three thousand Ayrshire breeders, eight hundred Brown Swiss breeders, nearly eight thousand Guern- sey breeders, nearly fifty-three thou- sand Holstein breeders, and tlfirty- eight thousand Jersey breeders. In total number of pure-bred dairy cattle New York stands first, Wis- consin second, Pennsylvania third, and Ohio fourth. New Yarn stands first in Ayrshires and Holsteins and second in Guernseys; Wisconsin is first in Brown Swiss and Guernseys and sec- ond in Holsteins; Ohio is first in Jer- seys; Texas, secons in Jerseys; Illi- nois second in Brown Swiss; and Ver- mont seconn in A_yrshires. Bulls camprise 21 per cent of the total pure-bred dairy animals, the per- centages for the various breeds be- ing as follows: Ayrshires 16 per cent, Brown Swiss 23 per cent, Guern- sey 28 per cent, Holstein 21 per cent, and Jersey 15 per cent. Stated in cows to every bred-pure bull the ratio being five Ayrshire cows, Brown Swiss cows, two Guernsey cows, three Holstein cows and five Jersey cows to a bull for each of the several breeds. The relatively small number of cows to bulls is ac- counted for largely by the number of pure-bred bulls heading grade herds and by the inclusion of bull calves in the total mlmber of bulls. It is interesting to note that the number of pure-bred dairy cattle (916,602) comprise less than three per cent of the 31,386,378 head of the total dairy cattle. This indicates the possi- bilities or the further development and growth of the pure-bred cattle industry. It is also interesting to note that 196,518 of the 752,371 dairy bulls are pure-bred, or over 25 per cent of our dairy bulls are pure-breds, while only two per cent of our cows are pure-breds. It is a healthy"sign in the war against the scrub sire. --Hoard's Dairyman. VILLAGE PHILOSOPHY. If you would get ahead, my son, use one! Cold judgment seldom enters into a heated argument.

Remember this: When Abraham Lincoln was a young man he ran for the legislature in Illinois, and was badly swamped. He next entered business, failed, and spent seventeen years of his life pay- ing up the debts of a worthless part- ner. He was in love with a beautiful young girl to whom. he became en-i gaged--then she died. Later he married a woman who was a constant burden to him. Entering politics again, he ran for Congress and was badly defeated. He then tried to get an appointment to the United States Land Office, but failed. He became a candidate for the U. S. Senate and was badly defeated. In 1856 he became a candidate for the Vice-Presidency and was again defeatcSd. In 1858 he was defeated by Douglas. One failure after another--bad fail- ures-great setbacks. In the face of all this he eventually become one of the country's greatest men, if not the greatest. When you think of a series of set backs like his, doesn't it make you feel small to become discouraged, just be- cause you think you are having a hard time in life--Praetorian Guard.

Census, included of the beef grades and of the dairy breeds. cattle were distribu- as follows: 30,494 Ayr- Brown Swiss, 79,445 Holstein, 231,834 o'f other breeds SPecified in the return. to note in this con- the survey made by the Association about showed a total 352,071 or about 70 per number reported in the association report show- 13 head to each breed- --ffl I er, reporting, and applying this to the I as we were the other day.

It is reasonable to expect Job was a patient man--but he nev- that the census included many of the er had the cholera get into his hogs smaller breeders having only one or more pure-breds and it would not be reasonable to expect these herds to average not more than ten pure-breds e/ach. If this were applied to each breed it woulr ineicate that there were over three thousand Ayrshire breeders, eight hundred Brown Swiss breeders, nearly eight thousand Guern- sey breeders, nearly fifty-three thou- sand Holstein breeders, and tlfirty- eight thousand Jersey breeders. In total number of pure-bred dairy cattle New York stands first, Wis- consin second, Pennsylvania third, and Ohio fourth. New Yarn stands first in Ayrshires and Holsteins and second in Guernseys; Wisconsin is first in Brown Swiss and Guernseys and sec- ond in Holsteins; Ohio is first in Jer- seys; Texas, secons in Jerseys; Illi- nois second in Brown Swiss; and Ver- mont seconn in A_yrshires. Bulls camprise 21 per cent of the total pure-bred dairy animals, the per- centages for the various breeds be- ing as follows: Ayrshires 16 per cent, Brown Swiss 23 per cent, Guern- sey 28 per cent, Holstein 21 per cent, and Jersey 15 per cent. Stated in cows to every bred-pure bull the ratio being five Ayrshire cows, Brown Swiss cows, two Guernsey cows, three Holstein cows and five Jersey cows to a bull for each of the several breeds. The relatively small number of cows to bulls is ac- counted for largely by the number of pure-bred bulls heading grade herds and by the inclusion of bull calves in the total mlmber of bulls. It is interesting to note that the number of pure-bred dairy cattle (916,602) comprise less than three per cent of the 31,386,378 head of the total dairy cattle. This indicates the possi- bilities or the further development and growth of the pure-bred cattle industry. It is also interesting to note that 196,518 of the 752,371 dairy bulls are pure-bred, or over 25 per cent of our dairy bulls are pure-breds, while only two per cent of our cows are pure-breds. It is a healthy"sign in the war against the scrub sire. --Hoard's Dairyman. VILLAGE PHILOSOPHY. If you would get ahead, my son, use one! Cold judgment seldom enters into a heated argument. A diplon4at, my son, is a fellow who never calls a bigger man a liar. The ,man with downcast eyes seldom sees any of the beautiful things of life. Y!; "If most troubles were not purely! imaginary, what a gloomy old world this would be! Those who seek popularity are chas- ing something less substantial than a just as they were about ready for market. About the only difference between a city hotel man and a bandit is that the bandit sometimes wears a mask. ---By Fred Hadley in Winnebago City Enterprise. DON"r BE DISCOURAGED. Remember this: When Abraham Lincoln was a young man he ran for the legislature in Illinois, and was badly swamped. He next entered business, failed, and spent seventeen years of his life pay- ing up the debts of a worthless part- ner. He was in love with a beautiful young girl to whom. he became en-i gaged--then she died. Later he married a woman who was a constant burden to him. Entering politics again, he ran for Congress and was badly defeated. He then tried to get an appointment to the United States Land Office, but failed. He became a candidate for the U. S. Senate and was badly defeated. In 1856 he became a candidate for the Vice-Presidency and was again defeatcSd. In 1858 he was defeated by Douglas. One failure after another--bad fail- ures-great setbacks. In the face of all this he eventually become one of the country's greatest men, if not the greatest. When you think of a series of set backs like his, doesn't it make you feel small to become discouraged, just be- cause you think you are having a hard time in life--Praetorian Guard. The Bible It is 500 years since Gutenburg con- ceived the idea of printing from mov- able type. The Bible has been trans- lated into 725 languages and dialects. Some part of the Bible has been print- ed in a new language e'very six weeks; about thirty million copies are printed every year. At that rate it would take fifty years to supply a copy to every inhabitant on the globe.

DEPARTMENT ASKS ASSISTANCE AT XMAS TIME 'The postoffice always needs your as- sistance, but in one particular espec- ially just at this time. During the holiday season large quantities of very small envelopes and cards are put into the mails, with the result that all post work is retarded and mail mutilated. The miminum size of cards and en- velopes should not be below 2 %x4 inches for the following reasons. 1. Address will be obliterated by cancellation mark. 2. Delay in cancellation because of awkwardness in cancelling. 3. Delayed thru difficulty in sorting. 4. Liability to loss or damage as small sizes do not fit letter packages, and can not be tied securely. The odd; and diminutive sized pieces of stationery have come into use in the past few years and only appear in any quantity at Christmas time, when the whole postal institution is keyed to top speed. We will greatly appreciate having the public use pro- per sized stationery. Early mailings, good packing, cor- rect and legible addressing also tend to expedite the mail service. i i THE WEST HOTEL Minneapolis, Minnesota.
