(Special to TOo Reformer.) WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. For the first timejjin many years. information collected Tv the department shows that all classsof live stock in the United States; latte increasing in numbers, says the department of agriculture in a staterajent issued today. Thus the real faetp contradict, absolutely. 'sensational bpports that prices for meat and shoes would rise to vtn-pfeeedented figures an the immediate future. It has evejaS been said that a government, statistician predicted meat at .it '-cuts a pound! (mt shoes at $10 1915. FOR SALE t - Also Jobbing and Express. Tel. 464-Y R. L. Pollica SCOTT FARM B. O.

De ANGELIS Where All the Good Shines Come From 72 MAIN ST. All people having an income of $3,000, or over must make a return to the Government before March 1st. The officers of THE BRAT- s TLEBORO TRUST COMPANY will be pleased to assist those of its customers, who are fortunate enough to have to make a return. BRATTLEBORO TRUST COMPANY a pair within the Such a prediction, t statisticians say, is On January 1, for her of beef cattle showed an increase of 3 4 per cent overiihe number a year iigo. and an actual itilerease ot 1.212,0(10 bead. Hitherto ttytl number of beef cattle in the I nite.jij States has declined steadily since There are also more milch cows inf the country than last year, the increase being 2.5 per cent. Oh January l 1614. there were only 58,0:53,000 swiitje in the- country; rti January 1, 1015, 64.,6 18,000. This is accounted for by the) fact that the production of swine cat be increased more rapidly than that ofi any other clashes of live stock and consequently an eh larged demand can be met more read-i 1 y . The prediction ot: 50-eent meat and .410 shoes was accompanied by the ion rhat Fraiicjj alone has taken from America neatly .00.000 horses within the last live months and th:iT the oflter countries fit war have drawn upon our resources i n the same tiro-portion. The facts are that more horses were on the farms of the United States on January 1, 1615, than there were a year before, the increase being 235, 000 head or Lb per cent. So fur France alone hr.vibg taken 500,000 horses, fmm us, the total exports since the war began have certainly been much less than 100.000 and very likely not over 75.000. Since there are ap-prox'imatelx 25,000.000 horses altogether in the 'United States, the drain on account of the .war is scarcely alarming. It is, in fact, pointed out by government statisticians- that the market value of farm horses has actually declined to such an extent that the average is how about $6 a lietfd less than a year ago. This decline is most noticeable in the cotton states nod in those states) which make a business of breeding horses for sale in ot her sections. Mules have declined even more than homes, Hieir value being now $11.50 per head less than a year ago. The explanation is to be found in the depression on account of the cotton situation in. the South, which is the great- market for moles. An : improvement in this respect will do much , to restore the demand for hoists, so that government specialists, while tidiculiiig the notion of a horse famine, are convinced, that farmers will find it profitable to u-w good work mates for breeding - none-stock. As for hides. the situation is not quite so clear, blit even here there has been much gross exaggeration. Fr.oiu two-fifths to less than one-half of the heather used in this country is imported, about 25 per cent of the 1 foreign hides retiming from Argentina, 15- percent from Canada, 14 per cent from Mexico, 84 Per eont from European-Russia, and 7H per cent from France. Since the outbreak of the war importations have shown a certain falling off. those for September, 1614, for example, being only 34,000.000 pounds, instead of 45,000,000 pounds the year previous. There is, however, little reason to suppose that this decrease will be permanent or of sufficient importance . to ; create any real scarcity. Since the great bulk of the imported , hides c Oines from countries that are not at war, shipments are not interfered wfith iti any way. and tip only now factor to he considered is the possibility of an increased demand by the waning countries. It is believed. however, that the United States is now . in a, better condition to face such a situation than for years past. The tide, it seems, has turned. Instead of live stock steadily decreasing year after year, this year for the first time, as has been said, all classes show an appreciable increase. Including horses, mules, milch cows, beef cattle, hoep, and swine, there were on January 1, 1015, 7,712,000 more farm afiimals in the United States than on January 1, 1014. Tire increase in the total value was "$78,024,000, of : IvSf per cent. It is quite true that this increase is not yet proportional to the increase in population, which is approximately 2 per efjjpt ;but, tbe-.faet that f here, is an inc-roasy, that the tide seems definitely to liave turned, is regarded as a sufficient answer. to alarming exaggerations . qjgda misleading figures. Missionary to Albania, to Whom Centre Church Parish Gave $300, Writes of Conditions. Rev. Charles T. Erickson, an American Hoard missionary whose .unexampled opportunity in Albania has resulted in gifts of thousands of dollars by persons in this country, including $300 by members of the Centre Congregational parish of Brattleboro, to whom lie spoke 11 year ago, writes to the board concerning side glimpses ot the havoc he is seeing and of the swift interpretation of his mission plans.. When the European war broke out the American Board was oh the point of reopening and greatly enlarging its institutions in Albania, Rev. Air. Erickson already w-as in Switzerland on his way to his field. His entrance into Albania was impossible for a time, and has been impracticable since. He writes: A few days ago 1 met a German friend who has been all his life in business in Calcutta. His business is rtiined; his brother whom he left in charge while he took a vacation is iti tv concentration camp at Ahmednagar. Our pnglish nui-se who is to lie head of our training school for ntuscs in Albania, writes us rhat her family's business is completely ruined, being Exclusively concerned with Germany and Austria. Here in Home is a typical family: Mother, English; Father. German; of three daughters, two are married to Germans and one to a Bel gian and all three husbands have been called to their colors. While 1 was in Geneva there was at the Y. M. C. A. a. prayer meeting attended by English, German. Austrian ynnd French. They knelt together, prayed together and wept together, shook hands, commended each other to Gods keeping and went out 'to fight earll other with bullets and bayonets. x At a quiet retreat up in the Carpathian mountains, close to the boundary lines of Germany. Austria and Russia. 1 attended a student conference during the second week of August. One young man. son of a Jewish mother and infidel father, went out from the morning meeting into the woods and didn't return until evening, when he came home with radiant face. That evening, at the elosp of the address I invited to my room any who wished to dedicate themselves to foreign mission work. Nine of tin choicest young people responded. It was a never-to-be-forgotten hour that we spent together. 1 saw visions of a new era for the student life and the Protestant Christian life of Austria-Hungary and of our Albanian mission. For the Protestant leaders in Vienna a few days before had formally adopted Albania Ins their mission field, to lie worked .jnintlv with our American Board and I under its direction and control; and, here were the recruits already offering themselves for the field. Teachers, preachers and emngelist,-Lftufsosjq . kin dergartnpr a. eofnplete working outfit for a strong, aggressive mission presented itself that night, ! Two weeks later almost every one of I the voting men in the group a a 1 of the j conference at. large, 27 altogether, were called to sacrifice themselves to this I ; god of war'" instead. i$ ! jjfh. --i.L Why Beef Tea May Be Intoxicating. Liverpool physicians are Interested !h the case of a traveling salesman who shows every silgn of alcoholic poledntng,. although he is a teetotaler. His illness Is ascribed to the excessive drinking of beef tea and other meat extracts, and the physicians believe that this indicates that nitrogenous- stimulants have an effect on the system similar to that of alcohol. SNIPING EFFECTIVE. Concealed Sharpshooters Do Deadly Work with Their. Guns. DUNKIRK, Il-nncT1. .Inin. -22 (com- spondence of Tiro Associtj-1 ed Press), The activities of the highly efficient German sharpshooters halve been responsible for a large proportion of the casualties in the French and British armies during the past two months. Lieutenant II. L Yoozier of the French army, writes of these shiu pshootet s: During the past three weeks I have lost more nti-nbv the sniper than I did in three stiff engagements. Our position is not unlike A. golf links half a mill from the club house we me bunkered and nicely under cover, but itnine diatelv one of us: shows a. head a bullet whizzes past.. -n one day ten were hit and for the life of us we could not lo-euto the place where theif snipers were concealed. At last wo found it: four hundred -yards in front, of ns in the open were several prominent tufts of grass; one of ray men fired into one of these tufts, and a striper-fell-into view mortally wounded. A hundred yards to the right was another tuft which we demolished with a fusillade of shots. When it was dark wo found there two dead Germans, who wore warmly clad and wrapped in rugs. We decided to imitate the tactics of the Germans. Two of our men volunteered to become water- rats, .just as the Germans had become field mice. Under cover of darkness tilrey wormed themselves into the bank at the water edge of a stagnant pond, and the next day they picked off inanv Germans before thev were discovered. Magnetic Mountains.
