But According to 8uperstitlon the
Gem Mutt Be a Gift to Person
Who Wear* It
According to superstition (and to
fact also), the owner of a diamond
Js lucky, indeed. The diamond should
be worn npon the left side, for It Is
of greater virtue there, for the
strength of Its growing is toward the
North, that Is the left side of the
world, and the left part of a man
when he turneth his faoe toward the
East. He who carries a diamond will
have strength and manhood; it will
keep him from harm, especially from
broken limbs. It will give him vic-
tory over all his enemies If his cause
Is righteous. It will keep him from
strife and riots, and Is a talisman
against enchantments. In fact if an
enchanter tries to work a spell upon
the possessor of a diamond he will
find It will work upon himself Instead
No wild beast will attack the diamond
owDer. It heals all manner of mental
troubles. If poison be brought near
it, the diamond will become moist and
sweat. In order to be of the greatest
virtue, the diamond must be given
freely Instead of being bought.
French Dogs Killed In War.
Some Interesting figures are given
In the newspaper Le Journal on the
reduction of the canine population In
France during the war. it was esti-
mated there were 3,855,320 dogs in
France In 1014, while In 1020 the num-
ber had diminished to 2,657,380 of
which 575,000 are pets, 2,082,389 watch
dogs. Of 1,107.940 which disappeared
the majority were killed by projectiles,
while employed as message bearers
with the French army. It is noted
that while the numbers decreased the
standard of leading breeds In France
in no way suffered.

The utilization of the range In the
national forests of the West for the pro-
duction of wool, beef, mutton and pork
Is steadily increasing from year to
year. Handlers and stockmen are
manifesting a growing appreciation of
the advantages afforded by govern-
ment pasturage. And in the same de-
gree they are all too frequently neg-
lecting their stock after It Is turned

On all open ranges there are many
losses from predatory animals, poison-
ous plants, disease and accidents, and
similar dangers. Unless owners of live
stock campaign Intelligently and perse-

fer a mortality of from 5 to « per cent

"There's a Reason"
Mortality High Laat Year.
Last year in forest district 5,-which
Includes California and western Ne-
vada, the total live stock mortality In
17 forests amounted to 1,151 cattle, 5
horses and 5,840 sheep. The total num-
ber of permittees who used the federal
grazing lands aggregated 3,329. They
grazed 234,415 cattle and horses, 033,-
500 sheep and goats and 5,500 hogs on
Ihe forest ranges. Two hundred and
seveuty-flve cattle died of disease; 299
cattle and 1,402 sheep were killed by
eating poisonous plants; 91 cattle, 5
horses and 2,745 sheep were killed by
predatory animals, and 486 cattle and
1,633 sheep succumbed to accidents
and miscellaneous causes of death.
This matter of live stock losses on
the government ranges has become of
such importance that the United States
forest service made a detailed survey
of the specific causes of mortality
among live stock In the Stanislaus for-
est of California during a recent year.
During the period under discussion a
total of 881 head of live stock out of
the 20,000 animals pastured in the for-
est lost their lives. The manner in
which these losses were distributed
should be of value to stockmen and
ranchers who are Interested In curtail-
ing these losses and who are anxious
to know what the weak points in their
present methods of management are.
The losses among cattle were distrib-
uted as follows:
Under one year old from blackleg,
98; over one year old from blackleg.'
57; calves, loss of mother from lark-
spur poisoning. 10; cattle losses from
larkspur. 53; other poisons, 21; preda-
tory animals, 20; accident, 33; in calv-
ing 14; lost, strayed or stolen, T4;
from anthrax, 2; from eating giant
powder from railroad construction
camp. 5; from neck-and-spine disease.
15; killed by hunters. 2; blind, aged
crippled and ruptured. 4; losses from
contagious abortion. 122; from lack of
proper food and starvation, 14, and
from unknown causes, 337,
Check Predatory Animals.
The losses from predatory animals
are being checked as rapidly as the
federal agencies for this work are
able to cope with the situation. When-
ever the forest rangers note that the
predatory animals are causing heavy
damage, professional hunters are sent
to destroy them. The losses due to
disease and accident and miscellane-
ous causes could be substantially de-
creased If more herders were employed
by the owners. Under conditions which
obtain on the national forest ranges
one or two herders could handle from
five hundred to a thousand cattle with-
out particular difficulty. On the same
scale that It pays to herd sheep on the
government ranges It also Is profit-
able to herd cattle and. potentially
permittees probably will come to this
decision of their own accord.
Poisonous plants—and particularly
larkspur are responsible annually for
large losses of live stock throughout
the western states. There Is only one
effective system of ridding the ranges
of larkspur and that la to grub the
plants out season after season until
Anally the range will be free of this
The experiences of a certain lyncher
whose range abuts one of the Califor-
nia national forests, and who, under
the supervision of the United States
forest service, has been waging a win-
ning fight against larkspur during the
last four years, are Illuminative In this
regard. After careful trial and study
of the control methods and the results
this stockmnn Is enthusiastic about the
efficiency of the plan and he urges ev
wy other rancher or stockman who
owns Infested range to give the system
Ideal Pasturage Infested.
In this Instance the larkspur was
prevalent In large amounts on a range
where the grazing was otherwise excep-
tionally good. The Infested area was
on a side hill where seepage from a
spring near the top of the hill pro-
vided plenty of moisture, so that the
grass wps unusually luxuriant at all
times during the grazing period The
rancher had to have a herder with the
cattle constantly in order to keep
them off the larkspur-Infested area.
Not only did he lose the use of excel-
lent range, but he also was under ex-
tra expense to protect his cattle from
the poisonous plants. During the 1913
grazing season he lost ten steers,
which, despite the efforts of the herder!
trespassed on the larkspur area and
succumbed to the poisoning which re-
sulted. The following season, under
similar conditions, 24 head of valuable
range cattle were poisoned. The next
year only five steers died from lark-
spur poisoning, while the following
year the mortality aggregated eighteen
head. In 1917 the larkspur eradication
campaign was Instituted, and as a con-
sequence of the work of that season
the cattle losses were curtailed to only
five animals. The next year the work
was continued and not a single case of
steer mortality from larkspur poison-
ing occurred. In 1919 only two steers
died, while last year the mortality also
was limited to two animals. Recently
the larkspur area of the range has
been grazed by a band of 2,000 sheep.
One Hundred Acret Grubbed.
The first season about one hundred
acres of range were grubbed, the poi-
sonous plants being eradicated with
larkspur picks and scattered In ex-
posed places to dry In the sun. One
man could dig 1.71 acrel a day. The
total cost of grubbing the one hundred
acres the first year amounted to
$450.30, an average of $4.50 an acre
The losses of cattle were reduced
from 18 head the year before to 5 head
the following season. The saving of
13 head of cattle was directly due to
the larkspur eradication work. Esti-
mating these steers worth $50 apiece,
a saving of $650 resulted, which paid
all the expense of the grubbing and
left a balance of $199.70 to the credit
of the work. The following season the
range carried 50 more head of cattle
as a result of the decrease In tbe
amount and severity of the larkspur
In passing, it Is worthy of mention
that the larkspur pick* are made from
ordinary surface picks by drawing out
one point to a chisel form about two
inches wide, while the other point Is
sharpened in a diamond shape. Gen-
erally pruning shears and small hand
axes are used In cutyng out the brush
and trees which obstruct the access of
the workmen to tbe larkspur. Ordi-
narily ,n average w,- • man can grub
out from seventy to eighty larkspur
