No Flies on England.
The flies can be put down. The
proof is that it has been done. Speak
ing rashly, there are no flies In Eng
land; at least, there are so few that
the inhabitants do not think it worth
while to screen their dwellings. The
reason is the simplest-the tight lit
tle island is kept clean. Fifty years
ago files were a nuisance In England,
though not the plague they are here,
for no other really civilized country
was ever quite so dirty as the United
States of America. This nuisance Is
pretty completely abated. In fifty
years England has been swept and
garnished, and the flies have starved.

What Your Eyebrows Telh
.People who have traits they Want
to hide are in more and more danger
every day. Ways of reading char
acter are multiplying alarmingly.
Now appears a clever German who
says the eyebrows are an unerring
indication of a person's temperament
and disposition. Lightly marked eye
brows, lying high above the nose,
show a weak nature and an inclina
tion to avoid work .
Dark eyebrows indicate strength,
and patience as well, while light eye
brows are rarely seen In people whose
minds are keen and sharp, though
the color of the eyebrow doesn't mat
ter as much as the shape.
That highly arched eyebrows de
note a sensitive temperament has al
ways been known, but the general
belief that they are the sign of su
perior intelligence is not, says the
German character reader, a true one.
Thin eyebrows show lack of vital
ity, and bushy ones almost always go
with great virility. If you see a wo
man with heavy eyebrows meeting
above the nose, you may trust in her;
such eyebrows in a woman, says the
German, spell sincerity.-New York
Shirt Waist or Blouse.
The tailored shirt waist Is always
needed. It fills a place that no other
garment supplies. This one is tucked
most becomingly and is adapted to
flannel, moire and pongee as well as
to linen and cotton waistings. In the
illustration it is made of butcher's
linen and is finished with simple
tailor stitching. If a fancy or more
dainty waist were wanted, it could
be made of embroidered pique or of
fancy muslin with the tucks sewed by
hand. It can be utilized for the shirt
waist gown, too, made from cashmere
or other simple seasonable material.
The waist consists of fronts and
back. It is finished with the regula
tion box pleat, at the front and the
sleeves are in regulation shirt waist
style, with over-laps and straight
cuffs. The turned-over collar is ad
justed over the neck-band.
Tho quantity of material required
for the medium size is three and one
half yards twenty-one or twenty-four,
two and three-fourth yards thirty-two
or two and one-eighth yards forty
four inches wide.
Gathered About Gaiters.
Gaiter tops should preferably
match the serge or broadcloth suit,
but in cheviot they will be found a
bit too cumbersome, and if the tailor
made be one of the brown cheviot or
Scotch serge it will be easy to match
either tone in brown kid boots.
Some of the newest frocks are
made with narrow sleeves, sloping
shoulders and scarcely any fulness in
the bodice. They have turned down
collars, round waists and merely a
little embroidery as trimming.

Novel Toy For Children.
Children who have been watching
tho, circus parade this season with
bulging eyes and have seen the lions
and tigers pacing their cages may
themselves own a cage with a restless
lion in it if their parents are so fortu
nately situated as to be able to buy
them one. A Michigan man has de
signed a toy which fills the bill. Ic
consists of a little wagon, modeled
faithfully after the usual circus cage,
inside which is an oval track. On
this track is mounted a lien or some
other one of the animals that Colonel
Roosevelt is busily engaged in shoot
ing. Pulleys running under the body
of the wagon connect with the wheels,
and as the child draws the wagon
around the nursery floor the animal
circles the track inside the cage for
all the world like one of the restless
man-eaters in the circus parade. I

CEMENT FLOORS IN HOG HOUSE.
I see in your last issue, a farmer
from Shelby County wants to know
something about cement floors for
sows at farrowing time.
Four years ago I built a house
for my hogs and put in cement floors.
I have ten farrowing stalls eight by
eight and like them very much; they
are easily cleaned, and I never had
better luck with early spring pigs,
also have a cement feeding floor
twelve by forty which I find very use
ful. Hogs will lay on cement in hot
weather and iieem to enjoy it.-A. B,

FATTENING THE PIG.
Ia these days the American pig
makes a speedy journey from farrow
ing bed to scalding tub, and the aim
of the judicious feeder is to add con
stantly to the flesh acquired while
suckling, bringing the hog up to 250
to 450 pounds as carly and on as la
expensive feed as possible. The young
animal will naturally put on weight
more cheaply than an older one, and
gains after ten months cost consider
ably more than those made earlier.
A pig which is being fattened should
gain from one to twp pounds a day,
and weigh, alive, 2^0 to 350 pounds
when nine to twelve months old.-.
From Coburn's "Swine in America."
the following method, however, they
ean be fed safely:
If two pieces of timber are put up
just far enough apart so the animal's
neck can be held between them, and
a hole bored through at such a height
that the cow will be prevented from
raising its head up to a level with the
body, there will be no danger of chok
ing.-J. S. Woodward, in the Indiana
It is no doubt true that Americans
feed their horses too .much hay. It
is common among horse owners to let
horses stand to full mangers wheu
not at work. But in London, the cab
horses, for example, are given Lay for
but two hours a day, in the Evening.
At the end of two hours the mangers
are cleared, Careful testing in de

Horses do not need a heavy ration
of alfalfa hay. Fed with grain, prob
ably ten or fifteen pounds of it is
equal to a manger full of other hay.
As they become accustomed to the
alfalfa it may be increased a little,
and the grain decreased. It is a rich
-food and should not be used as freely
as hays with less protein.-From Co?
burn's "The Book of Alfalfa."
GROWING DAIRY INDUSTRY.
The growth of this great Industry
is shown in the increase of dalry cows
during the year from 1908 to 1909,
as shown by the Agricultural Depart
ment. The Increase of dairy COWB In
the year named Is 626,000 In round
numbers. We have already called at
tention to the work of the Illinois
station in the dalry department,
where seventeen cows were kept on
twenty acres of land at a net profit of
$50 per acre. Ensilage feeding and
the soiling system were employed lu
this. It is said that efforts at that
station will be made to maintain one
cow per acre by this system of feed
ing. The dairy Industry will con
stantly increase soil fertility, while
grain farming exhausts it.
The State agricultural colleges are
doing a great work through their
dairy departments in the way of
showing how soil fertility may be
constantly increased by dairying.-?
