"Farmers should use a great deal of care in housing their animals at this time of the year," says Dr. K. W. Stpuder of the agricultural extension ; department of Iowa state college. "There are two extremes in housing that many farmers practice. One extreme is. crowded and tight sheds or barns which have poor ventilation and are too warm at night. When the animals are turned out, in the morning there is. great danger that they will take pneumonia. "The other extreme Is poorly built buildings, aud those built with open! foundations high above the ground.! The cold winds blow into and through such barns at night and cause pneumonia. Many farmers mistake pneumonia for influenza or cholera." •House wiring, door bell installation, electrical repairing, etc. Prices reasonable: Call 493 K.—Advertisement.

The reservation, under which , no mandate could be accepted by this country without action of '' cbagvess, was unopposed on the Democratic side, Senator Hitchcock said, because'it "merely recites the clear meaning of the treaty." .'.''•'' The vote was 68 to 4, Senators Jones of New Mexico, Kendrick of Wyoming, Walsh of Montana and' Williams of Mississippi, all 'Democrats, voting against the reservation. Field Day. For League Foea. Another broadside of denunciation was loosed by irreconcilable opponents of the peace treaty when the senate took up the subject under an agreement to keep It constantly under consideration until disposed of. , Senator, France (Hep.), Maryland, and Reed (Dem.), Missouri, led off for the irreconcllables, the former char-. acteriifng tne"treafy' as 'an' 'instru: ment of "hate and destruction" and the latter culling It a "serpent of treason," ~" / ' . . The debate began after the' senate had voted with only a few scattering"Days" to "pass over article 10 until adtion had been taken on all the other proposed reservations. The motioa was made by Senator Lodge, and although Senator Knox (Rep.), Pennsylvania, .one of the Irreconclbable group, said he could not see the wisdom of delaying o/ decision, no roll call was demanded. Senator Fjance, presenting formally Hie resolution .pffered several days ago for a declaration of peace, declared the reservation discussion had descended to "sophistry" and "mere quibbling over language."

Scoffs at "Holy Oil." "If the senator thinks that it'dem- onstrated courage to leave the Republican party with Roosevelt," Senator Reed retorted, "why some millions -of Americans did it. And if it took, courage to leave the Bull Moose for the Democratic party, why thjen he had more company. But the chief distinction between Mr. Colby and the " others was that he landed in a job the minute he got into Democratic ranks. "The holy oil. of presidential approval, Mr. President, gives no immunity to'public -men" from criticism in this senate." 'Tit is' the purpose of the senator," Senator Ashurst said, "with, the giant flail of his sarcasm to drive Democrats now willing to. accept'the Lodge reservations away from'them, so that this treaty may never be ratified. I concerle the greatness of his fight. I want no ignorance of his purpose." Hope to Vote In Three Weeks.
