So long as a man is selling an animal that will make a profit to the purchaser, his business is on a safe and dependable basis but when animals are sold at such fancy prices that they have little chance of showing their new purchaser a decent return on their investment, that breeder's basis is on a very shaky foundation, and will not stand long. A breeder with ten good brood sows of any popular brood can hold a local sale in the fall of gilts and boars, one in the spring of bred sows, and clear above all extra expense, $1,000 selling, every hog to his neighbors. Not one of them at a fancy price. This $1,-000.00 per year, or $100 per sow is clean velvet, and will show twice to three times the market price. To do this he has got to do something more than raise hogs; he has got to interest his neighbors in his herd of hogs, or by a neighborhood effort of all breeders of pure-bred live stock, they can interest the neighbors of that and adjoining counties, and create a market that is good for a liftetime business.

Entered as second-class matter at the nostoffice at Fairmount, Ind., un der the Act of Congress of March 8, THAT $ll,OOO,CC0.OC3 OWED BY ALLIES We loaned to the allies during the war a grand total of about $10,000,-00.000. Accumulated and unpaid interest amounts to another billion. About one-third of the enormous sums that we raised during the war bv tnxri.-n ?.rd the ssle of Liberty bonds wont out in those stupendous loans. There was no intimation at the time that the European allies would ever evade their payment or start an agitation for their cancellation. It seems significant that with the convening of the Washington conference the cancellation of this vast debt of $11,000 .000.000 first suggested by Lloyd George to President Wilson, has boon renewed with much persistence. If there were an all-round remission of these debts. Great Britain would stand to lose little or nothing. It boi rowed from us and loaned to France, Italy and other allies, but we loaned to all of them and borrowed not a dollar m return. trie rumen O. it. - 1 of cancellation would fall on tne United States. We would simply make a gift of that $11,000,000,000. i SInco the United States got neither indemnity money nor territory as a result of the war and the Versailles treaty, while Great Britain and France acquired both, they should be willing, if they are especially desirous of getting out from under their debts, to trade the West Indies or islands in the Pacific for their notes held by the L'nited States If they r.nd it moon- venient to pay these notes in money, an arrangement might be made where- by their obligations, at least in part, could bo honorably satisfied by a fair relinquishment of a part of their territory to the United States. A proposition of that character from them would be entitled to consideration. It might or might not be found acceptable, depending on the details of the offer whether the islands which they offere-el to sell to us would be an asset or a liability, their value to this country and the sums that France and Great Britain might a-k for them. There is no probability that Congress would consent to the uncompensated remission of these debts. They amount to about $100 per capita of our population, and uncompensated cancellation would be equivalent to our giving the borrowing countries a $100 Liberty bond for every man. woman and child in this country.
