, How to Bolt Roasting Car.
J There is but one way to boil roast
.Ins; ears. Put on a pot of boiling
water and "break" it with a
little soda, skim the water, and put
in another vessel in order to get all
the limo out of it. Add a teaspoonful
of granulated sugar, several pinches of
salt, and, when the water conies to a
boil, put in the roasting ears, cover
tightly, and boil furiously till thor
oughly heated through from fifteen to
twenty minutes and serve hot. It
will bo cooked in a way that one can
eat three or four ears my husband
can and often does eat six ears and
asks for more. El Dorado (Kas.) R

Watch Children's Eye.,
Children in schools should be care
fully watched in order to guard
against trouble with the. eyes, as
shortsightedness is becoming yearly
a more .common defect. They should
not be allowed to hold the bopka
nearer the eyes than fourteen inches,
and must not stoop over their work.

The Flat-Headed Borer.
Tho destructive tree borer so well
known to horticulturists as tho Flat
headed applo tree borer and to ento
mologists as Chrysobothrls femorata
is forind In all parts of tho country
and annually destroys vast numbora
of trees. It attacks apple, pear,
quince, plum, peach, ctyerry, ash, elm,
maple, box-elder, sycamore and willow
tree3. Tho injury Is done by tho flat
headed borer during its grub or larval
stage. Tho adult insect is a beetle
about half nn inch long, flaltlsh-ob-long
in form, shiny greenish-black
above and copper colored below. The
femalo deposits her eggs in the crev
ices of tho bark "of the trunk and
main branches, usually on tho south
or southwest side, where the effects
of tho sun upon tho tree is greatest.
In our locality tho most of tho eggs
are probably laid during April and
May. Although eggs aro sometimes
deposited by this insect upon healthy,

well-established trees, it evidently
prefers to select sickly or nowly
transplanted ones, especially thoso
whose bark has been injured by ex
posure to the sun. The eggs hatch
within a few days after being depos
ited. Tho young larva soon eats
through the bark and proceeds to bore
at somo depth beneath tho surface,
leaving behind it a flattened channel.
Sometimes a single borer will girdle
a tieo and cause its death. The larva
reaches its full growth by the end of
the summer, being then n pale-yellowish
grub about half an inch long, with
a broad, flat head. During the winter
it remains quiescent. The next spring
it bores out nearly through the baik,
then moves back a little and under
goes its change into tho adult beetlo
form tho transformation being com
pleted in about threo weeks. The
beetle then cuts an opening through
the bark and escapes to continue the
work of destruction begun by Its an
cestors. During tho warm part of tho
day it may bo seen flying about In the
There are threo ways of combat
ting the borer: (1) by destroying the
grubs while they aro at work in the
treo; (2) by the application of some
substance that will prevent tho oggs
being deposited or will destroy tho
eggs and nowly hatched larvae, and
(3) by wrapping tho trees with some
thing that will prevent the females
gaining access to tho bark. But, by
the best mothods known, borers are
difficult Insects to combat. Tho larvae
make their way into tho wood so
soon after the eggs ar.o doposlted and
keep so completely out of sight ap.
they work, that they may do mnch
injury before their presenco is sus
pected, and are difficult to kill when
detected. It is a case where an ounce
or prevention Is most decidedly more
effective and more economical than a
pound of cure. Arizona Station.

The International Exposition.
Tho International Livo Stock Expo
sition will bo held at tho Union Stock
yards from November 2G to December
3d. Tho importnnco of this exposi
tion to tho livo stock Interests of both
tho United StntcB and tho Dominion
of Canada can hardly bo overestimat
ed. The writer has been told by Cana
dians that many of tho stock breed
ers on that side of tho lino make moro
ado over this show than do tho Amer
icans themselves. This, if so, is so
because the Canadians appreciate the
value of education In the matters of
live stock raising. Thoy realize that
tho exposition is an instructor in tho
matter of breeding stock, as well as
of feeding stock. It makes It possible
for live stock raisers from all parts
of the country and of tho continent to
meet each other and compare notes.
Not only this, but it shows the live
stock raised In the different sections
of tho country and under different
modes of treatment. Next to tho
Canadians, tho people of the North
west show perhaps tho greatest inter
est in this event, for they realize that
live stock ralalng is to bo tho great
industry of their part of tho country,
or, at- least, a sort of cornerstono of
agriculture there. Tho cost of attend
ing tho exposition Is not great, and a
week spent in attendance on the show
Is one of tho host paying weeks that
a man can record In his summary of
the year's work. The pulso of the
whole live stock Industry Is felt hero,
and truths are Impressed on the vis
itor that ho gets in no other way.
The Feed of the Cow.
Thoro are few of our farmers that
follow tho practice of feeding slops to
tho cows, as is the case in tho towns
and cities where rows have little pas
turage. Nevertheless many of our
cows have access to weeds and other
herbage that taints the milk In one
way or another. Some say the flavor
goes through tho cow and others say
that it is blown to tho milk" on milk
ing. But In whatever way It comes It
is found in tho milk nt milking time
and later in tho butter. Tho cows
that have to depend on dry pastures
at this time of year are tho ones
that aro 'most apt to eat foul-smelling
weeds. If thoy havo fresh cornstalks
or other cut feed they will not trou
ble the weeds. But most of our farm
cows nro glvon no attention of this
kind and simply have to mako their
living from tho pastures tho best thoy
may. Wild onions havo an oil that
certainly passes through tho cow into
the milk and tho sanio Is said to bo
tho case with wild garlic. If this is so
regarding these two weeds that cows
eat, may it not be so with some of the
other weeds thoy cat, of which wo
know less than of theso two. Tho
weedy taste in milk is very obnoxious
to somo of tho consumers of milk. If
tho farmer has not sheep enough to
keep tho weeds out of tho pasture It
will pay to attack thorn with a scythe.
Irish Creameries increasing.
Tho number of creameries in Ire
land is rapidly increasing. Tho In
cieaso is among both tho proprietary
and the co-operative. Of tho former
thero aro now 300 and of tho latter
200. Last year theso GOO creameries
received over eighty million gallons
of milk and produced ovor fourteen
thousand tons of butter. Most of this
found a ready market in various parts
of Great Britain. Tho quality of tho
butter from theso creameries shows
a tondoncy to Jmprovo in quality,
which It must do, as It Is brought into
sharp competition with tho buttor
from Denmark and from Canada, both
of, which makes nro high in quality.
Tl'ieso creameries mako tho produc
tion of Irish bacon easy, and this has
a high reputation in tho English market.
