New Angle—Bull Aids In Saving Farmer's Life (Editor's Note — The following story is a reprint from the Snohomish Tribune of Snohomish, Washington. The clipping was handed us by A. W. Swenson who received it from his brother, F. L. Swenson, a former Postville resident.) The man who originated the idea of having Humane Societies was nobody's fool. He probably knew that many an animal has done man a good turn and the smarter members of the human race would repay the favor. And if there were not already such societies, a Snohomish man might well have been the one to start one. That man is John Knepper of the Forest Glade district. The full story of his particular incident reached us only this week, but it is the kind of story that is worth repeating if found out months, yea even years later. John was" injured two weeks ago. Working alone in the woods he had the misfortune to break his leg when a tree he was working with failed to respond in the manner he had anticipated. Alone, he began calling for help. Despite his painful effort to make himself heard, not a human ear could detect his pleading cries for help. But his cries were heard. . . were heard by a faithful animal. His bull, grazing in the pasture nearby, heard the voice of his master and evidently sensed that something was wrong. Every time that John called for help, the bull would answer. Of course he didn't know- that John was lying in pain with a broken leg. But dumb animal or not, he spoke up to offer encouragement at least. For what seemed like hours. John kept calling. And every time he called, the bull answered. In time neighbors heard the bull's bass bellows and began to wonder why the animal, standing in the middle of a field, was carrying on a one-sided conversation. And when they had wondered long enough they went out <cx investigate and found John trying to crawl for help on his elbows. John was rushed to an Everett hospital for medical care and four days later an ambulance brought him home, where he is now recuperating. This might be the end of the story, but it isn't. Stove up with a broken leg, John wasn't able to take care of the animal. He arranged for F. L. Swenson to sell the animal from his auction ring. And sell it lie did. Word about the animal got around and by the time bidding was completed the Federal Packing Company paid $370 for it. It was only a grade animal, without pedigree or a famed family tree. But Swenson says $370 for a grade bull is a record price. Maybe this animal should have been given to a zoo where he could be eared for in luxury the rest of his life. VOTE FOR .

ALL CARS MUST BE OFF THE STREETS AT 12:00 O'CLOCK Monday Night, May 3|| so workers can paint the yellow parking marks on paving. All cars not observing notice will be removed by street crews. Your cooperation is requested M. C. DEERING Mayor of Postville. Advisable to Pasture Oats and Legume Seeding Farmers whose pastures suffered winter injury and who now need emergency pasture might well consider pasturing off part of their small grain acreage which was planted with legumes this spring. Ralph Krenzin, agronomy specialist at Iowa State College, says that pasturing off oats on an oats- legume seeding provides a good emergency pasture and is also a sure way of establishing a new legume stand. Delay pasturing until the small grain has reached eight to 10 inches in height. Krenzin suggests, to obtain maximum value from the crop. Care should be taken to prevent excessive trampling, especially during wet weather. Grazing should be stopped when the oats are gone, to avoid damage to the legume crop.
