Two persons, each prominent in our agricultural industry and each of whom figured in unusual adventures with reference to the first world war, have died within recent days. One was William C.Clos of Mt. Pleasant, an authority in the field of animal husbandry.
Mr. Clos' connection with the late John H. Seeley at Mt. Pleasant and the latter's world famous herd of Rambouillet sheep brought to Mr. Clos interesting post-war experiences. The war and the revolution in Russia had reduced that nation's livestock resources drastically. The soviet government determined to do something about the situation and contracted with John H. Seeley for breeding stock. Mr. Clos, who has assisted Mr. Seeley in the development of the splendid breeding animals, personally delivered shiploads of sheep to the soviet government.
