NEW STYLE OF ?ViILK BOTTLE

Various devices have been invented
to get the cream out of a milk bottle
and a Michigan man has contrived a
way that involves a new bottle. In
this new bottle there is a email open

tom cream line is apt to be. Normally
this opening ls plugged with a re
movable pin. but when the cream is
to be run off this pin is taken out
and the cream allowed to flow through
the hole. To do this, however, air
must be admitted to the top of the
buttle, so the plug is made with a
sharp point which can be jabbed
through the pasteboard seal .that is iu
the top. lt is important to keep each
plug wbh its particular bottle, for once

PREVENTION OF ROPY MILK
Caused by Certain Bacteria, One Type
of Which ls Found in Dirty,
A woman reader wishes help regard
ing ropy milk, asking the cause and
the cure. The milk is strained at
night and the next morning the cream
Is ropy and must be thrown away. It
ls not always easy to trace the cause
of ropy milk to Its source. Without
going into any lengthy explanation, it
may be said that ropy or slimy milk
ls caused by certain bacteria. One type
may be found in dirty, stagnant water.
If the cows wade In this water their
flanks and udders become the resting
place for this type. The bacteria are
easily transferred to.?the milk at milk
ing time. The stable becomes infect
ed, as it were, and also the utensils
that come in contact with the milk.
The germs lodge in the crevices of the
utensils and readily propagate in the
warm milk. The cure lies in absolute
cleanliness. All utensils should tx
thoroughly scalded. Lime is an ex
cellent destroyer of all germ life. The
utensils may be given a coating of the
slaked lime, then washed in boiling
water. It may be necessary to give
the stable a thorough cleaning with
lime used as whitewash.
HANDY DEVICE IN THE BARN
Lever Attached to End Used for Open
ing and Closing Stanchions
How lt ls Made.
I have a handy device for opening
and closing stanchions, says a writer
in the Missouri Valley Farmer. When
making it I took first a strip of one
by four and bored one-half inch holes
in it. These holes were as far apart
as the stanchions were at the top.
The Lever Does lt.
Then I bored holes the same ?.zo near
the bottom of the swinging side of the
stanchion. I bolted the strip to the
stanchions, and at the end attached a
lever bj' which the stanchions could
easily be closed. The lock on the end
of the stanchiojfts the only one now
that need be closed, as the stri?
keeps all the others closed.

THOUGHT HE GAVE THE SIGN
?ut Old Gentleman Naturally WES in
dignant ac Mistake cf
A well-dressed old man walked ir.tc
a corser drug store the o?her day,
mopped his brow with a handkerchief
and took a seat at the soda fountain.
Thc derk faced him expectantly.
"I am very thirsty," he remarked as
he drummed on the counter. "I don't
know what I want. Well, I believe I
will take a phosphate," he concluded,
still drumming on the marble with his
fingers. The clerk smiled, picked up
a stein and went to the rear of the
store. He came back, sot it in front
of the old man and rang up 15 cents
out of the ha4f dollar which was given
him. The old man, without looking i:i
the stein, thisstily raised it to hi3
lips and took a long draught Then
he' quickly set the stein down, sput
tered a moment and then exploded
between his coughs.
"What do you mean? I never took
a drop of liquor, sir, iu my life. But I
knew it, sir, the rotten stuff, when I
smell it. ni not stand for it, sir. I
called for a cherry phosphate. What
do you mean, sir, by giving me
whisky?" And tbs old man stopped
for breath as he glared at tho amazed
"Web, I-I er-I guess I made a
mistake. I thought you wanted it for
medicine," stammered the clerk.
"Sir, I am a teetotaler. I wouldn't
touch the stuff for love nor money."
And the old man marched out indig
"Well, for the love of Mike!" ex
claimed the clerk to. a man at the
counter who had been served a stein
in the same way, but who made no
kick. "That old duffer came in here
and certainly gave me the correct

of it, too." The clerk laughed as he
looked into the stein.-Kansas City
OBJECT TO THE CHICKEN'S
Residents of Summer Place Allege
That Their Early Morning Rest
The dwellers' lu tho residential sec
tion of Hastings-on-th'e-Iiudson have
become much excited over discussions
of the question. Is it proper and right
to maintain a poultry farm on a vil
lage plot? Since the days have length
ened and the sun rises early and the
windows are kept open wide all
night, it is maintained by those on
the negative side of the discussion,
restful sleep is out of the question
after 4 o'clock in the morning. A peti
tion setting forth all the arguments
from the moral, economic and social
points of view against chicken raising
inside of village limits has been cir
culated, and bas the names of all who
co not own chickens. One of the sign
ers said the whole trouble was
brought on the community by the in>
portation of a bantam rooster. What
this fellow lacks in size he makes up
in volume and shrillness of voice and
in the zeal with which he indulges his
talent for crowing in the early hours
of the day. He is keyed too high,
and his owner should feed him chalk
every night. TtiQ petition describes
in detail the annoyance of being
roused out of a sound sleep by a
loud cock-a-doodle-doo and the horror
of lying awake to listen for the next
summons from the other roosters.
One particularly loud-voiced Leghorn
was found dead beside his coop a few
days ago. It is said on of the neigh
bors, at the risk of being shot, broke
the rooster's neck. It took only a
few days for the owner to get an
other lusty-lunged bird, aud now there
is some feeling! *
Bitterness In an Epitaph.
Mason and Dixon's line ls fast be
coming a memory, but here and there
are to be found evidences of the once
bitter hatred which prevailed in the
day3 of the Civil war.
George W. Kerdolff, who before en
tering the insurance business spent
much time in the south, tells this
story of an epitaph rudely carved on a
block of sandstone yet to be seen In
a Louisiana parish:
When the slogan of the south was
"On to Washington," and the youth of
the Confederacy had shouldered their
muskets for the front, leaving only
the older folks and women and chil
dren at homo, a hand of Union sol
diers carno into Louisiana. Sighting
the enemy, the aged men, assisted by
the women, gathered together their
scant supply of firearms and planned
resistance. As the Federal forces
came up a narrow lane, the southern
ers opened fire with such deadly effect
that the invaders retreated, leaving
ono of their number dead upon the
fiehl of battle.
The victors buried the fallen foe,
and over his grave, to this day, one
may read the roughly chiseled epi
taph: "Tho Yankee bands with bloody
hands came southward to divide our
lands. This lonely and deserted spot
is all this-old Yankee got"-Kan
