WASHINGTON, D. 0.-Twenty mil-
lion human beings will die of starvation
the first four months of 1919!
Five millions of men, women and chil-
dren, principally children, will die each
lmdmtrth !-
(.As many human beings will perish
cof hunger in each of those months as
re killed or died of wounds in four
yetrs of war.
teath toll of war was five millions.
Famine death ltoll in four years of war
was twenty millions. Four died at home
of saarvatlon to every one who died in
battle or hospital.
War's famine harror was as nothing
compared to the death roll of the next
four months' famine, predicts United
States food administration.
"Despite all we can do,"'officially an-
nounces the food administration. "It is
expected 10.000.000 human beings in the
north half of Russia will starve to death.
Food cannot be gotten to them.
"Terrible famine conditions are sure
in Poland, Serbia, Bohemia and Finland.,
Next to northern Russia, Armenia will
experience the worst conditions."
Some food will be sent into Poland,,
Bohemia, Finland and Sirbia, and the
starvation death roll sill he kept down,
but it is estimated that in these coun-
tries and Armenia more than 5,.000,000
will starve.
England, France, Italy Safe
Half of Serbia's pre-war population
already has died of starvation, asserts
the food administration, and a fourth
of Poland has died of famine. Super-
human efforts will be made to get food
to them now, to save those left alive.
Arrangements long ago were made to
feed England, Franee and Italy this win-
ter. They can be more easily reached.
The food administration has well-laid
plans for feeding Belgium, Rumania and
Greece, and will exert itself to get food
to the Czechs, Jugo-Slava and peoples of
the disrupted dual monarchy.
Hungary will not feel hunger, for Hun-
gary, with Denmark, Scandinavia, Uk-
raine, Bulgaria. Turkey and southern
Russia, are fairly well equipped for win-
ter. No American food will go to them.
Germany Is better supplied with food
tian its neighbors. In Austria, Russian
famine conditions will prevail unless Am-
eria, aids.
The food administration has about
given up hope of saying the 20,090,001
from hunger deaths, and will concen-
trate efforts in keeping starvation out of
countries which can be reached with ship-
ping facilities.
But, to keep more millions from. starv-
S ing. warns the food administration,
'i t is absolutely necessary that the United
,. States inecreasi food exports from 12,-
OO M/Jo6O6 tons of last year; : ot 0000t
;':=::t,;in|t' a yJear." .t "- '"


tountrits ii: black, north Russia, Armenia, Serbia. Austria, Finland and
Bohemia, show where 20.00.f000 human beings are doomed to starve to death this
winter. The countries shown in white are those where United States aid will
prevent famine. The regions practically self-sustaining are shown in shaded part
s of the map.
S -* Ii '--r :. -


Already, hundreds of food-carrying
ships are headed toward the United Stat-
es to get supplies from our food sur-
plus. And we hold 60 per cent of the' .
fond malrplus of the world.

Denmark Will Help To
Feed Hungry Nations

COPENHAGEN.--Grant Smith. of the
American legation at Copenhag,:-n, in an
interview with a representative of Poiiti-
lien, said -that Denmark was in a position
to play an important part in the great
work of supplying those countries in Eu-
rope where there was a scarcity of food
in cnosequence of the war. By enabling
Denmark to produce more food it would
be possible to have a large amount, (if
tonnage that would otherwise be needed
to bring supplies from America and other
countries overseas.
America, he declared, was contemplat-
ing the sending of seed corn, fertilizers
and foodstuffs to Denmark on condition
that a certain proportion of Danish prod-
uce. particularly flour and meat, should
be delivered to those countries which are
in need of it, at fixed prices; In. this
way relief would lie broughtb'abut oore
oectualy- _d: more. quic l;'thia any.

SHALL WE BRIGHTEN IT?


We Can Help Keep "America's Pledge," Save Life

Abroad, Prevent Trouble at Home, and

Earn Money Besides


Have you studied the hunger map
of Europe? Do you know that, in the
next four months, in spite of all we
can do, 20,000,000 people must starve?
That means 5,000,000 this month,
and 5,000,000 more in February, in
March and in April.
"How many prea 5,000,000?". An
army which standing, packed solid,
would fill 172 acres.
In column, four abreast, forty inches
between ranks, it would stretch 1,420
miles; viz., from Key West to Bos-
ton; from Paris to Constantinople.
These wretches are now "falling
dead," we are told, from actual star-
vation, "as fast as autumn leaves fall
from trees."
And we are further informed, seven-
teen cents per head will save many
of them.
Do we care? Can we sleep while
such facts face us?
If interested, let us act.
"By gi.'ing?" Yes, but better, by
producing.
"How?" By raising food in the up-
per Everglades of Florida.
"Are these dry lands?" Yes, thou-
sands of acres.
"And ripe enough to farm?' Like
fruit on trees, some are "green," some
"half ripe," and others fully ready
now.
"How can we tell?" By looking at
Jr the wild growth. The "green" lands
grow sparse, short saw grass. Next
comes heavy saw grass, then, in order,
pig weed, millet, dog fennel and elder.
Millet lands are good. Fennel and
elder lands are ripe enough for IM-
MEDIATE USE. Nature is doing the
work. The fall of the lake, calamitous
to eanal transportation, has here
worked a miracle in soil evolution.
But of these, thousands or acres,
ready RIGHT NOW to save countless
lives, lie idle as polar snows or desert
sands.
"Will they grow paying crops?"


Last month Mr. Charles N. Barham, nel and elder lands, as ready for use
of the National Food Administration, RIGHT NOW as lake lands.


investigated these lands and reported.
He speaks of "the astonishingly pro-
ductive character of the region," calls
it "the greatest vegetable production
area in Florida, if not in the entire
South," with "practically an inex
haustible soil, requiring no fertilizer
and no clearing," and says "Reports
given me by the natives are hardly
believable."
True, most of this applies to Okee-
chobee lands. But, he adds- "Ier-
sonally I believe that enough sugar
cane can be grown along the lake
and on RECLAIMED LANDS to prac-
tically free us from the necessity
of Cuban importation. Live stock,
standard crops, such as corn (of cer-
tain varieties), oats, all of the grasses,
and navy beans, can be produced in
tremendous quantities, while the pro-
duction of vegetables ought to be lim-
ited only by the ability of the mar-
kets to absorb them."
This story has to do not with lake
lands but with these "RECLAIMED
LANDS." They include the dog fen-

Okeelanta-Fruitcrest District,
Okeechobee Country, Florida


Twenty-seven years ago Dr. Hrrvey
W. Wiley discovered these reclaimedd
lands.' In his famous report, pub-
lished by the U. S. Department of Ag
riculture in 1891 (Sen. Doc. 89, "Ever-
glades of Florida," p.79), he located
them as "nearly half a million acres
bordering the southern shore of Lake
Okeechobee."
"Half a million acre." i ;l1 sec-
tions, or 21 townships. This includes
the total 'Glades territory bordering
the lake and reaching back 10 or
12 miles.
Be conservative. Divide this by
two or even three. This sull leaves a
vast territory with but samples in
use.
And Wiley discovered it 27 years
go, nd said of it: "There is prac-
tically no other body of land in the
world which presents such remarkable
possibilities of development."
"Is this mere theory?" Instead, in
the last five years, WE PIONE1ERS
HAVE PROVED IT. It is READY
FOR IMMEDIATE USE. And now,
in the face of world calamity, why, in

the name of reason and common hu-
manity, do we not use it?
"What can we raise?" The things
Mr. Barham names: "Sugar cane, live
stock," including hogs, beef and dairy
cattle, also poultry," standard crops,
corn, oats and grasses.
This is not all. Add a full, year-
'round cih(cuit of stock feeds and
broom corn; and when canning and
dehydrating plants have come, an im-
mense and varied line of vegetables.
And, meanwhile, HUNGER destroys
each month more than MARS destroy-
ed in the last four years!
"Can we break the wild lands?"
Yes.
"Must we wait for better transpor-
tation?" No. There lies our vast ad-
vantage over the truck grower.
"Wherein?" His products are per-
ishable, and must be shipped quickly.
Not so, live stock, feeds, poultry, eggs
and cane sirup.
Nor is it true of butter, cheese and
canned milk, all of which we should
produce now in immense quantities.
Boats can haul these.
"Should upper 'Glades farming at-
tract capital?" The question an-
swers itself.
But recently the voice of "patriot-
ism" silenced all other cries. Milion-
aires served Uncle Sam for one dollar
per year.
"But now the war is over." Says the
Federal Food Administration: "If we
fail to lighten the black spots on the
hunger map, or if we allow any por-
tions of it to become darker, the very
peace for which we fought and bled
will be threatened. Revolt and an-
archy inevitably follow famine. Should
this happen we will see in other parts
of Europe a repetition of the Russian
debacle, and our fight for world peace
will have been in vain."
Unless ptriotism is already dead,
as,much reason now exists for raising
food as recently existed for buying
liberty bonds.
But, in any event, profit still lives.
"Sugar cane" suggests the SUGAR
FAMINE, cane sirup at $1:00 per gal-
'Ion, and cane fields netting hundredis
of dollars per acre .per year.
Say "hogs' 'and echo answers-
"Pork chops, 50c per pound; bacon,
75c; sausage, 30c, 35c."
"Beef" calls up visions of porter-
house steak at 45c and round steak
at 35c per pound.
"Poultry" means 40c per pound for
chicken, and 80c per dozen for fresh
eggs.
"Dairying" reminds us of butter at
80c per pound and wretched substi-
tutes at 45c, cheese at 50c per pound,
and fresh milk at 15c to 25c per quart.
Talk of "attracting capital!" Such
figures should cause the mouth of the
veriest war profiteer to water.
If humanity and public spirit fail,
interest alone should push such farm-
ing.
Men of means AWAKE! Have
you hearts and feelings? Are you pa-

rice of Cattle F eed


Mil Comes Up and the People Pay-Shorts Has Advanced
$20 Per Ton &nd Is Due For Further Increase, Ac-
cording.To Advices Received Today

The big boost in the price of cow feed, which has come down to the "dere pee-
i".in the form of 23- to, 30-Cnt- milk,.ia.due to the relaxation of government-
jrestiction on the profit of the millers, according to local feed dealers who dis-
.tossed the subject today.
I 'Up until about ten days ago, they say, the .riUers were held down to a profit
of $1 per ton, which made their business a losing proposition, the local dealers
:believe. Just as soon as the restriction on profit was taken off, the millers be-
gan to make back their losses during the war, it is explained.
I The result of this condition is that shorts which was quoted to the Southern
IFeed company bty the Aikin-Eskin Milling company of Evansville, Ind., a few
-days ago at $31 a ton is quoted in a letter from the'same firm received today at
$58 a ton. This means $69.80 laid down in Miami. the freight being additional.
.The feed company cannot handle this for less than $75 a ton, W. C. Eberwine,
'manager of the company, said today.
There isralso a shortage of this product, as well as of bran, because the flour
,mills are not running full time now, Mr. Eberwine explained. The government's
.oders have been cancelled and the counirry is overstocked 'now. Consequently,
.the byproducts of fio,.r,-such as shorts and bran, are not produced in sufficient
,quantities to meet the demand. ,
1 "I do not believe the millers are making more than they are entitled to," said
'George Crews, agent of the Cumberland Liberty Mills of Jacksonville. "Prices
!of feed have not come up as much as other things comparatively. I do not be-
lleve that cow feed has yet reached its top margin, and conditions throughout the
feountry are such that little hope for lower prices can be entertained for some time
Iyet" "

DRIVE TO SUPPLY FOOD.


.:TO NEAR EAST


The Armenian, Syrian, Jewish re-
lief drive of January 12 to 19 inclusive,
involves the greatest charitable-'prop-
aganda in the history of this coun.try.
The destitution in th'e near East,
which embraces the unspeakable- suf-
ferin'g of hundreds of thousands of
human beings appeals to the hearts
o thef millions of civilized people of
the earth.
The cry comes with added interest
to the American people following the
war, because the duty devolves upon
this nation to take the lead in mat-
ters of this kind. The United States,
Sthe most prosperous country on the


globe, has always responded gener-
ously to these pleadings for the dis-
tressed. At present,enjoying the
greatest prosperity in its history and
rejdiceful over' the'triumphant victory
which smashed the Prussian war ma-
chine, this pathetic appeal will find -a
hearty response on the part of all
people who can be touched through
the unspeakable outrages which have
crushed a worthy and innocent people.
Never in the history of the world
has there been such destitution, suf-
fering as exists among these people.
who.are the victims of the most
shameful "brutality that has ever
cursed the earth. The American peo-
'ple have materially aided each and
every worthy cause in addition to per-
forming-their duties in all war activi-
ties, but in this campaign it is a mere
question of saving lives, and the call Is
a most important one. Therefore it is
not only- the duty of all churches,
loridkes,: civic organizations, etc., to or-
galize. for this immediate relief, but
to :press into service every man and
Woman who can give valuable aid in
the service.
Let It again be said that America
not only leads the world in progress,
in government, but that it also leads
in humanity.

SHALL WEBRIGHTEN IT?



We Can Help Keep "America's Pledge," Save I
Abroad, Prevent Trouble at Home, and.



Earn Money Besides
Earix 1Money Besides


Have you studied the hunger map
of Europe? Do you know that, in the
next four months, in spite of all we
can do, 20,000,000 people must starve?
That means 5,000,000 this month,
and 5,000,000 more in February, in
March and in April.
"How many -re 5,000,000?" An
army which standing, packed solid,
would fill 172 acres.
In column, four abreast, forty inches
between ranks, it would stretch 1,420
miles; viz., from Key West to Bos-
ton; from Paris to Constantinople.
These wretches are now "falling
dead," we are told, from actual star-
vation, "as fast as autumn leaves fall
from trees."
And we are further informed, seven-
teen cents per head will save many
of them.
Do we care? Can we sleep while
such facts face us?
If interested, let us act.
"By giving?" Yes, but better, by
producing.
"How?" By raising food in the up-
per Everglades of Florida.
"Are these dry lands?" Yes, thou-
sands of acres.
"And ripe eriough to farm?' Like
fruit on trees, some are "green," some
"half ripe," and others fully ready
now.
"How can we tell?" By looking at
the wild growth. The "green" lands
grow sparse, short saw grass. Next
comes heavy saw grass, then, in order,
pig weed, millet, dog fennel and elder.
Millet lands are good. Fennel and
elder lands are ripe enough for IM-
MEDIATE USE. Nature is doing the
work. The fall of the lake, calamitous
to eanal transportation, has here
worked a miracle in soil evolution.
But of these, thousands or acres,
ready RIGHT NOW to save countless
lives, lie idle as polar snows or desert
sands.
"Will they grow paying crops?"


Last month Mr. Charles N. Barham, pel and elder lands, as ready
of the National Food Administration, RIGHT NOW as lake lands.


investigated these lands and reported.
He speaks of "the astonishingly pro-
ductive character of the region," calls
it "the greatest vegetable production
area in Florida, if not in the entire
South," with "practically an inex
haustible soil, requiring no fertilizer
and no clearing," and says "Reports
given me by the natives are hardly
believable."
True, most of this applies to Okoe-
chobee lands. But, he adds' "Per-
sonally I believe that enough sugar
cane can be grown along the lake
and on RECLAIMED LANDS to prac-
tically free us from the necessity
of Cuban importation. Live stock,
standard crops, such as corn (of cer-
tain varieties), oats, all of the grasses,
and navy beans, can be produced in
tremendous quantities, while the pro-
duction of vegetables ought to be lim-
ited only by the ability of the mar-
kets to absorb them."
This story has to do not with lake
lands but with these "RECLAIMED
LANDS." They include the dog fen-

Twenty-seven years ago Dr.
W. Wiley discovered these "r
lands.' In his famous repo
lished by the U. S. Department
riculture in 1891 (Sen. Doc. 89
glades of Florida," p.79), he
them as "nearly half a million
bordering the southern shore
Okeechobee."
"Half a million acre," is
tions, or 21 townships. This
the total 'Glades territory b
the lake and reaching bad
12 miles.
Be conservative. Divide
two or even three. This still
vast territory with but sar
use.
And Wiley discovered it 2
go, nd said of it: "There
tically no other body of land
world which presents such rer
possibilities of development."

vanity, do we not use it?
"What can we raise?" The things
Mr. Barham names. "Sugar Lane, live
stock," including hogs, beef and dairy
cattle, also poultry," standard crops,
corn, oats and grasses.
This is not all. Add a full, year-
'round cii(cuit of stock feeds and
broom corn; and when canning and
dehydrating plants have come, an im-
mense and varied line of vegetables.
And, meanwhile, HUNGER destroys
each month more than MARS destroy-
ed in the last four years
"Can we break the wild lands?"
Yes.
"Must we wait for better transpor-
tation?" No. There lies our vast ad-
vantage over the truck grower.
44 "Wherein?" His products are per-
ishable, and must be shipped quickly.
Not so, live stock, feeds, poultry, eggs
and cane sirup.
Nor is it true of butter, cheese and
canned milk, all of which we should
produce now in immense quantities.
Boats can haul these.
"Should upper 'Glades farming at-
tract capital?" The question an-
swers itself.
But recently the voice of "patriot-
ism" silenced all other cries. Milion-
aires served Uncle Sam for one dollar
per year.
"But now the war is over." Says the
Federal Food Administration: "If we
fail to lighten the black spots on the
hunger map, or if we allow any por-
tions of it to become darker, the very
S1 peace for which we fought and bled
S will be threatened. Revolt and an-
archy inevitable follow famine. Should
ihik h.,ippen we will see in other parts
of Europe a repetition of the Russian
debacle, and our fight for world peace
will have been in vain."

asore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the great ,.
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- I might almost say international -
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it O11 and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one if our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend % pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and will do. Ve show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were maoe
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from

how we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper

night as you read' this W. C.
yres will in Macon,-Ga., by appoint-
ment to meet W. J. Conners, who is
on his way here from Buffalo, but
will stop off long enough en route to
buy some well bred high grade cattle.
Mr. Conners will then comeFUlM o
West Palm Beach and remain here un-
til Dec. 20th, when he will go back to
New York state for his family, who
will spend the Christmas holidays with
us.
Nowjust to see. where the herd 1f
50 ,,y1g and. 3 bulls were to be pas-
tured we took a 72 mile ride on Sat-
urday out to the Conners Farms. It
was a 7 o'clock, morning, start and we
-g'bt back at 5 p. m. We did 2jiales
.perhour going out, drawing two feet
of AiRTEin a canal seven feet deep
and sixty feet wide and we went so
fast that the swell hit the bank after
had passed the point of contact 125
feet. JaL- 4H.glrJidge was captain
of the "Knee-Deep"- of Buffalo, Mr.
Conners' speed boat and Carter engi-
neer. We had as talking partner J.
T. i.g' of Torry Island, who had
just sold 18 red Jersey Durocs to
Manager W. C. Groves of the Conners
Farms and what he said to us about
the country we were speeding through
is .too long to go in this story. If
every boat tears up as much water
hyacinth as we did the canal will never
choke up with the danger to naviga-
tion weed.
The faster they go the easier the
ride is true of speed boats on the Palrh
Beach Conal. We could have traveled
35 niles per hour, if the crank shaft
had not been bent, but as it was we
went faster than the cranes and
egiets could fly as 'we stirred them
up, and we threw waves of cold..saw
grass water on a lot of alligators that
were disturbed in a sound sleep in
their sun bath.
Just east of the Big Bend we passed
going out, the.north end of the Glade-
crest-Okeelanta canal, seve.-miles of
which has been ,diug and efieyet to
go. It is 25 miles from Lake Okee-
chobee, and Hollaway is working on
the Gladecrest end. It really means a
roadway' along the banks-this is
why it is being dug--to get material
fora. roadbed. The water along there
had been up to the bank tops but is-
now down' four feet lower. The forest
of dead trees we were going through
I found out after to be hog weed or
"cailles" a weed that grows up in a
night and dies down next day or soon
afterwards. I is often six inches in
diameter and e )ee' hg and is just
a plaib ordinary weed, and' when it is
dead -it weighs, branches and all less
than the stalk, dead, of a century
plan; and I have cut them off in the
Mojave Desert, Califarnia, for comedy
'stage canes' that weighed, fowr*ebti
lqn, and four inches through less than

F t The visit to the farm was made for
She purpose of observing the progress

acquired the place, nut over a year

SOe of thile first features noted was

f margin of profit for the employees andl

for profit, but for the bencfit of the
good people who are Iielpiitg to make
my place a success, and my neighbors,

that, while it is now selling at 850, $80, and $80 an acre in ten- l't*
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth 8500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate

reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

.Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Make up a party ammng your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit

just what it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were maae
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Porest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land come and let us explain
how we can do this.

that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth B00 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD-and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- I might almost say international -T
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some-of it NOT1 and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in.the oountry.

If you cannot work the lend yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you:--

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our utereoptieoh lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make qp a party among your friends and spend % pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just whaL it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Governmentr Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer

STEER FEEDING
By Jpln AM. Scott

In December, 1918, an arrange
ment was made with L. K. Edwar
of Irvine. Fla., whereby a cooperate
cattle feeding experiment was co
ducted during the past winter.
Ten grade Angus steers were us
in this experiment. These were stee
that were bred and raised by Mr. E
wards. They were out of native coi
by a purebred Angus hull, and we
about 18 months old when the expert
ment began. They were divided in
two lots of five steers each.
Feeds Used
From December 20 to March 4, th
steers in Lot I were' fed 10 pound
shelled corn, 4 pounds velvet bea
feed apd 20 pounds silage, each, daily
Those in Lot II were each fed 1
pounds shelled corn, 4 pounds peanut
meal feed, and 20 pounds silage dailh
From March 4 to April 19, the ani
mals in Lot I were fed 12'j pound
shelled corn, 5 pounds velvet bea
feed. and 16 pounds silage. each, daill
Those in Lot II were fed 121h pound
shelled corn, 5 pounds peanut mea
feed, and 16 pounds silage, daily. B
velvet bean feed and peanut meal fee
is meant that the velvet bean hull
and peanut hulls are ground up wit
the beans and peanuts. As soon a
the steers were on full feed, they we
fed in the proportion of one pound of
velvet bean feed and peanut meat feed
respectively to each two and a half
pounds of ?helled corn.
Weights and Gains
At the beginning of the experiment.
the steers in Lot I averaged 599
pounds and those in Lot II. 593
pounds.
At the close of the experiment the
steers in Lot I averaged 857 pounds,
an those in Lot II 854 pounds. In
120 days, the length of the experi-
ment. steers in Lot I had gained 258
pounds per head, or an average daily i
gain of 2.15 pounds. Those in Lot II
had gained 261 pounds each, or an
average daily gain of 2.17 pounds.
This shows practically no difference
in tile gain produced by feeding vel-
vet bean feed or peanut meal feed.
At the close of the experiment, the I
steers were sold to Armour & Co.,|
Jacksonville. and were classed as the
best finished cattle ever received at |
that market. Not only were they the
best finished cattle, but the carcasses
in the cooler presented the best ap- I
pearance of any-thing the company had
slaughtered in Jacksonville. The
slaughter test showed no difference
in the percentage of dressed weight
of the two lots. They averaged 56.4
per cent.
The farmers of Florida are well ac-
quainted with the value of velvet
beans for beef production, but the
peanut meal has been used but little
if any for this purpose. The results J
of this experiment would indicate that
peanut meal is equal to velvet bean
meal for beef production. -

AT LOXAHATCHEE



A n|illepdt in the deveipift of phe
dairy and livestock industry in TPlm
Beach county was reached yesterday
when Sulerintendent Neilsen, of the
Loxaliatihee Dairy. started a crew to
vuttingi age and filiguA o"ie of the.im-
,nei.- ffilos oil that fari'.'TeP are
two a _ncete.e os on the dairy farm.
Filling ofil silos mil be finished with
sorfgkum in the fall. This work pre-
vented Mr Neilsen from attending tlhe
meeting of the Swine Breeders Asso-
ciation at St. Augustine this week.
There are silos on the Pennock Plan-
tation at Jupiter and probably at one or
two other places in the county, but the
capacity of llie Luxahatchee Dairy silos
is larger" than that of any others.
Conrr-which is the"iY'(Mal basis for
silage, h;is proved to be a good crop in
all-4aarls i[ the c.auty. There will be
a large.-3tel,. lhis year in the" Ever-
glgad~e and Ti'-MThela.o ods. Along
with thli increase in thle acreage of coru
Shas gone an equal increasee in the
|amount of live .jock. At one time it
looked as if 'there would be a produc-
tion of corn in1 excess of thle local de-
'inand, but it has beeii found there will
'be a sufficient local .qwket.

Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while It is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- I might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

SIf you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country lor yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twiose

were good, strong, healthy animals.
The company's budget would permit Mr. Burguieres a
larger number of cows than the 500 that were observed, but
the cost and time involved in dipping twice a month re-
strains him from going to the limit at this time.

date.will here have immense yields. ,The Evergla-49mck
lands have their partisans who will confess no superiority
to it, but the appearance of the flatwoods on the recent in-

Mr. Burguieres made a trip to the ranch in his trusty Dodg,

Ithe distance the going was good The turn from the mail
road to the west is made a mile south of Jupiter. the way lead
nog through an interesting country dotted with wonderful
farms and graves sufficient in number to show that the lane
which h gives the newcomer such an unfavorable impression
because of its unpromising exterior is fer.z.Jsjabe.ex, tenel
( and needs only intelligent husbandry to develop its productive
qualities.
The road crosses the Loxahatchee river at the intersection
of which on both sides is the citruL grove of George W
Lainhart. on %which are grown the finest frguitsi_.Florida
This is no idle boast, for Mr. Lainhart captured the firs
prizes at the state fair on oranges, grapefruit and kinj
oranges Farther along are the farms of Solon H. Platt aii(
the Bowers place and others, exhibiting the luxuriant growtl
of plants ,which are given the attention that sensible farnier
bestow upon their crops. Not far from the road the Soutileri
States Company is experimenting with ten acres of sugar can
on hammrnocjk.and. which has had some cultivation but nt
fertilizer, and already is six feet high.
Before the turn in the road which leads to the Southerr
States ranch is made the greatdredge working in the St
Lucie canal is passed. This huge machine, which is eating .
path two hundred feet ,wide and teaJet deep through tn:
muck. has a capacity of 5Qi .Luhtlj yards a month, and the
St. Lucie canal, which is being constructed at a cost of $6:5..
'-*000 a mile is forty-percent completed. This is the waterta
which is ti have its terminus at St art, and will be the larp.
est -,f the drainage canals from Lake Okeechobee. Tht

"hug" operated by its own power, which transforms it int(

It is properly a three hr auun to the Southern States ranch

to take in the beauties of the landscape and the productive
%wonders worked by man, the party would have made it ir
that time. It was almost noon. however, when the outer rat,.
was reached,. and here the parry from town was met b3
L Howard Elles, common sense agriculturist from Louisiana
J and Doc Gustarfon. expert cattleman from T4xas, whom Mr


d Burguieres has placed in charge of the ranch. These men
;t were mounted on cow ponies and had started out to meet the
Cowboys who were driving in a herd recently purchased for
the ranch from Okeechobee county. They had an extra poriny
saddled and ready for any one of the party who might wish to
', take a ride around the range, and Mr. Whidden got out of
the Dodge and mounted the animal, being more in the humor
I at any time to ride a horse than a Dodge. WJidden qualifies
as a caullman of thle first class. He had been pointing out
cattle along the way. identifying the owners by the brands the
e beasts bore, at a distance which strained the eyes of the others
tsee even the cows. If any orre desires a practical demcn-
f station of what training will do to tune u.p the alertness of
a person in his particular line of work, let him take a trial.
through a cattlCei.untry with J.J..'Vhidden. It's as easy for
him to see a cow at a mile's distance and distinguish her
e /brand as it is for a lookout on the bridge of a ship to tell a
If (light on the port bow when there isn't any that the land lub-
Iber can make out.
I Later in the day the company witnessed the branding of
the new cattle. Already the cows were scarred and maik.d
wI ith brands, but it doesn't make any difference how many
times a cow has been branded she must undergo the ordeal
again if she is sold for stock purposes, provided the new
* owner desires his purchase protected.
e Bowing to this necessity, Mr. Burguieres is having the cat-
tle rebraoded and remarked as soon as they are received at
1 the ranch, but he doesn't take any pleasure in it, nor does
She view it with equanimity; on the contrary, he avows it is a
barbarou,.kr.ctice and he hopes to see the cattle industry
t developed in such a way as to makej-thL junnaessary. In the
g meanwhile the case .hardened cattlemen go about their work
1 in a methodical and phTe-matic manner. Doe Gustafson held
his pipe Firmly in the corner of his mouth and didn't mis; a
s puff while he applied the white-hot iron "S"' to the shoulder
, and the hind quarter, making a double-ess on each, while tw..;
e other men with sharp knives sliced fringe from the ears.
o "Cowlike" is an apt synonym of patient endurance. But few
of the animals made a sound while they were being brandedl:
I some of the more temperamental bellowed, and a few turned
. somersaults and stood on their heads. But "Doc" puffed on
L 1his briar, and occasionally spat out of the corner of his
South. For him it was merely one of the odd jobs about
e \the ranch, and all in the course of a day's work.
One couldn't heir) but think-, with the world war ever in
'm:nd what admirable soldiers these fellows on the ranches
would make Any one of them'employing the sang froid with
: which they herd and brand cattle could come near to sacking
I a company of Horrible Huns if given a fair show against
I them They do battle with the elements day in and day out,
ye-ar in and year out, and are so hardened to ordinary hard-
*h;n. that nothing feazes them. The branding was not fin-
ished yesterday, but when it is the cattle will be dipped, and
thus they will be started on the road to a better and more
I profitable existence. Not only did Mr. Burguieres show his
esthetic nature in abhlarence of the branding practice, but he
exhibited it in an unexpected and entirely original way by
, Ibiectine to the ol-co2lJL=animals. the brindled, speckled.
h blaze-faced and mottlc-. which he designated as the Mardli


Gras kind. Inevitably it must come out that he is from New
Orleans. Probably nobody ever heard of a Mardi-Gras cow,
but who will say that the characterization doesn't fit?
Variou&fo..age and feed crops are being tried at the ranch, IA
and all.ijlnstccess, though some are thriving better than V
others. Velveibeans ramble over the place where they were
planted last year. Not any was sown this year, but there is
well nigh a perfect stand. A forty acre field of sugar cane
.is growing on land ranging from high pine to lu a4-, .cx,,
Ilibiting varying stages of growth according to so. Ths .
field is from the stubble and has suffered from drought, but "
is coming along well, though, as might be supposed, it doesn't
.show up as well as the ten acre field on the hammock land;
'though the latter had no fertilizer and hadn't been worked as
much as this, which had thr c...hu.nred nWft irtilizer to0
the acre. AlliaiL is doing well, sorghum is flourishing, while 4/f
c Qor Anu. a, taoLoes make a fine showing.
On the edge of the field is a sjruDihi1which was used last
year for grinding cane, a goodly lot syrup being made on
the ranch and sold by the barrel in Jacksonville at 2_9 cents
a gallon. The forty acre field of cane, which Mr. Burg-ieres
said is the largest f rane n the_ r.unty, will be Is.cd
as seed_cane. The remaining forty acres, scattered abaut,
will be used for syrup.
The Southern States ranch is welljtuated. It is watered ,
by the St. Lucie..canal, the nativegraaes, majidge cane and
others grow luxuriantly, and Para .ss and oter- imported /
grasses are being introduced. Theand is high and dotted
here and there with hammocks, valuable on a ranch for tle
shade they afford. By the first of next year tweJto.usand i.2 ,V '
head of carefully selected native stock will be grazing on the /
lands, and the introduction of registered,.ulls will follow,
(the plan heng i "hrbp. ou" from the native stock as the.f-er..
X he stock now being purchased are .paid for-at the rate
$30,a head, and what with the stock, the fencing and the
employment of a force to keep things going, the erection of
comfortable and commodious buildings, it will be seen that
the outfit will represent a largvestment before it is com-
pleted.
There is much to be doiie; in fact, only a beginning has
been made, but the labor expended and the money invested are
worth far more to Palm Beach county than the disbursement
of so many dollars through local channels. The value of t:ie
work is chiefly in the buildirfnLgf.ca.iLt ranch along modern
linjs, the domnstration of the value of putt best in at
the best may be taken out, the blazing of a path hat leadlls
to a v table mine of Ith; the opening of an industry
which, though"ld'in '-lorida, has yet but entered upon the
threshold of its fullest realization.
T'Rcountry still abounds in wil Ugne. On the road to
and from the ranch wild turkeys crossed the road; a raccg9n
did a hump-backed dance in front of the car, quai, whirred
dizzily above the field from their concealment alongside the
highway, and Ibrds of great size and gay .plumage winged
lazily out of reach as the noise of the motor disturbed them.
At times when he is on a belated return to town, Mr. Bur-
guieres said, the headlight of the car shines into the eyes uf
littleb.rog_. ,es. No wonder the Indian. J y.._o,jhis_.anl.
It is full of romance,- and other things.
