Here are a few interesting flgurer
from Bulletin No. 581, issued by the
government: In 'he year emiei
June :10. 1909, the United States im
ported 258.000 bushels qf corn, o;
which 195,000 came from Argentina.
The imports declined to about 118,
00 in the next fiscal year and to
52,000 in the year ending June 3 j,
1911, Increasing to about 53,000 in
the following year. Argentina Mr
nished the same pro rata amount in
all these years. In September. 1913,
the corn imports amounts to 522.00<i
bushels; in October. 1913. 473,000;
in Novemuer. 1913. 1,633,000, and
in December, 1913. 2,343,0<j0 bush
els. Argentina furnished in thea-
months, respectively, 499.000, 421,
000, 1,509,000 and 2,173,000. Sorn
Increase in exports from down there
In the matter of beef the following
interesting 'mports are reported
"Chilled and frozen beef is coming
from Argentina at the rate of 9,000-
000 pounds monthly, and the Impor-
tations are exciting conjectures con
cerning their importance in the sup-
ply of dressed beef for the United
States. Argentina is far in the lead
a source of Imports of dressed
beef Into this country and has fu-
ture possibilities of enormous in-
crease." Speaking of the importa-
tion of oats the bulletin says; "The
total imports during the four months
ending January, 1914. amounted to
over 16,000,000 bushels, or more
than the total imports during the
seven years beg*nning July 1, 1906.
and ending June 30, 1913." Mayb-
from the above the American farmer
can figure a few things if he takes
the time to dig them out.

TO THE PUBLIC
In some charters there seems to
be a misapprehension regarding the
powers of commissioners on the herd
law iiuestion. As a matter of fact,
the commissioners have very little
to do with the matter. When a
proper petition is presented to them,
asking for an election to be called to
vote on herd law, in any spe i3ed
locality, it becomes the duty of the
commissioners to call such election
which is about all they have to do
with it. In case the commissioners
fail to do their duty, they could and
Hrohably would be ousted from office.
If elected, I will do my duty under
my oath of office, regardless of the
opinion of either friend or foe. Those
who know me best do not expect any-
thing else of me.

Oklahoman the big Claflln company's

The Oklahoman modestly admits-
that "business conditions in the eas
have not been the most favorable,
but trade Journals have been able

Wilson says "there are signs of a
business revival." People were led
to believe that with the inauguration
of the new regime business condi

alleged ashes. Yet here we have
