The young man put the question

“Yes,” replied the girl, firmly.

“Have you ever been the objec-

wonderful and sparkling as the
stars? Have you ever loved and
been loved like that, Julia?”
In an agony of suspense he wait-

stalks is a difficult disease to con-
tend with, states Dr G. 8S Weaver,
veterinarian at South Dakota State
College. The cause of the disease is
not known. The most reasonable
opinion is that it is due to some kind
or poisoning, either prussic acid or
pottasium nitrate or both. Animals
become nervous. A sort of intoxica-
tion takes place, the animal becomes
weak and wabbly, some being so
crazed that they have a tendenc to

ventative is to keep cattle out of the
stalk fields. Some there is little
trouble from this disease, and most
farmers take a chance on getting
the feed from the fields. If poisoning
occurs it probably will be wise to
abandon the stalks as far as feeding
is concerned.
