Was Born in Oskaloosa, Iowa, in 1855.

erybody In the navy calls him.
Ho got his nickname In a rather odd
way. It bo chanced that the ofllcor

on the sixth day of tho week In tho
Admiral Frank Friday Fletcher.
town of Oskaloosa, la. The exact
date was November 23, 1855. His fath
er on this account used to call him "my
llttlo man Friday."
When he waB a llttlo chap of seven
his father died. At fourteen ho was
appointed to Annapolis, and in due
course was escorted thither by an
older brother, who when called upon
to put tho youngster's name down on
tho roster of boys entering tho Naval
acadomy, wroto "Frank Friday Fletch
er." This did not particularly please
the family, becauso Friday was not
really a part of his name. Dut natural
ly under the circumstances it stuck.
Ho was called Friday all through tho
five years he spent at tho acadomy
he dropped back ono class, being rath
er young to keep up and ever since
that tlmo IiIb fellow officers in the serv
ice havo known him as Friday Fletch
er and nothing else.
Young Fletcher was graduated from
Annapolis on June 21, 1S75, and soon
afterward was assigned to duty on
board tho United States steamer Tus
carora, which was ongaged in survey
ing a submarine route for a projected
cable to connect California with Japan.
This, by tho way, was a very Interest
It Involved an exploration of tho
ocean depths, almost tho first ever
made, and specimens of tho materials
composing tho sea floor were brought
up from tho bottom all tho way across
tho Pacific. Just east of Japan tho
Tuscarora discovered tho deepest holo
that exists anywhere In tho world, a
marine abyss, known to this day as
tho Tuscarora Deop, tho soundings
fulling to touch bottom at live and a
quarter miles bolow tho waves.
Although accident first directed
young Fletcher's attention to scientific
matters, incidentally to his profession
al duties, ho soon showed a special
aptitude for such pursuits. He has an
InveBtigatlvo turn of mind, and If ho
had not happened to becomo a naval
officer It Is altogether likely that ho
would havo been an inventor.
Indeed, some of tho most valuablo
mechanical contrivances used In the
navy, especially 'n connection with
guns, wcro originated by him. Among
theBe aro improvements in telescopic
sights; the well-known Fletcher
breech closing mechanism, and a frlc
tlonless gun mount for quick fire rifles.
Another very remarkablo crulso, in
1879-1881, took tho young officer to
Korea, on tho steam sloop TIcondero
ga, then a formidable warship Com
manded by Commodore It. V. Shu
feldt, sho was sent around tho world
In obodienco to a special order of con
gress, and in behalf of tho department
of stato, to mako what was called a
commercial and diplomatic crulso.
The most Important object of tho ex
pedition was to open negotiations
with tho government of Korea for a
treaty which would insure tho protec
tion of the lives and property of Amer
icans. It was also desired to open Korea
to American commerce, and Japan,
being at that tlmo on very cordial
terms with the United Stntes, had sig
nified her willingness to lend assist
ance toward this end. Dut when tho
TIconderoga entored the harbor of
Fusan, May 14, 1880, tho officials re
fused to accept tho letter handed to
them by Commodore Shufoldt, on the
ground that It wis addressed to tho
king of Korea, whereas their monarch
YiV f .K 'BHjHv
was properly designated as tho king of
Chro-Sen which, being translated,
' means "Land of tho Morning Calm."

CUPID A VERY "QUEER KID"
Beginning and Ending of Romance In
Which Not a Single Word
Huntington, W. Va. For two years
persons living near tho railroad tracks
here havo watched for tho Overland
freight, which Is duo through here nt
4:30 In tho afternoon. To thoso who
were disinterested watchers tho event
simply meant a gllmpso at tho "mad
fireman," as they called him, for, as
tho train whirled by here that mem
ber of the crow would hang out of tho
cabin, wave a piece of waste or a
handkerchief In tho direction of the
long hill and presently throw kisses
until tho train was out of sight. "Some
nut" was the verdict of tho spectators.
But away up on tho hill Miss Sylvoy
Price, standing on tho veranda of her
father's house, waited for the dally
performance, and when It had ended
sighed "somo dream." Sho had never
spoken to tho fireman, but more than
two years ago began to correspond
with him. He waved each day, and
finally one day when she stood on the
platform at the llttlo railroad station
be dropped a card with his name and
address near her.
The courtship began by correspond
enco and continued until all arrange
ments had been made for their mar
riage. Sho had never heard his voice,
and her only impressions of him were
obtained from his letters and his per
formance at tho door of the engine.
Recently Miss Price went to Ash

man, who corresponded with her under
tho namo of F. L. Francis. Sho wait
ed at the church for hours and then
went to the railroad offices. No ono
of that namo was employed there, ehe

PROPER FEEDING OF DAIRY COWS
PROMPTLY REFLECTED IN YIELD
Abundance the First Essential But Correct Balance
Ration Also Is Important Economy Has to Be
Considered In Solection of Food For Herds
It pays t6 feed good dairy cows.
Tho returns aro prompt and sure. You
teed tho cow, tako your bucket and go
right around and draw your pay at
Tho first essential In feeding Is .that
an nmplo quantity of feed be supplied.
It doos not pay to run an engine upon
half capacity! Neither does It pay to
run a cow on half capacity. Dig milk
yields aro secured only when tho cow
eats a large amount of feed.
It Is also Important that tho feed
shall bo correctly balanced, and shall
furnish tho elements necessary to
maintain tho cow and to fiirnlsh the
material which go to mako up milk.
Next, tho ration should bo palatable,
that Is of such a nature that tho cow
will relish It. Pasture grass and silage
aro splendid examples of palatablo
feeds, as arc also such feeds as wheat
bran, oil meal and cotton seed meal,
fresh aud not musty, and bright, sweet,
Noxt tho feed shall be economical or
cheap. Some feeds aro palatnblo and
well balanced, but are entirely too ex
pcnslvo for cow feed. At times wheat
bran, oats and oil meal must bo placed
In the class of feeds which are too ex
pensive for profitable uso for feeding
In large quantities. Homo grown feeds
are usually the most economical, as
feeds grown on the farm do not have
tho producers' profit placed upon them.
Corn and the legume hays, such as
clover, alfalfa and cow peas form a
perfectly balanced, home grown ration.
Thoso dairymen, ns n rule, secure tho
greatest profits who grow largo
amounts of feed on tho farm.
Another important matter in suc
cessful cow feeding is that tho cow
bo given a sufficient variety. A cow
tires if forced to cnt n single feed for
a long period without change. A mix
ture of several different feeds serves
to whet the cow's appetite.
An ample quantity of good, clean
roughago Is exceedingly Important.
This is best furnished by clover, cow
pea or alfalfa, hay, corn stover or ol
lage. Rest results are obtained when
roughage constitutes about two-thirds
of tho cow's ration by weight. The
following grain mixtures give splendid
results when fed to milk cows:
(a) 400 pounds corn and cob meal,
100 pounds cotton seed meal.
(b) 400 pounds corn and cob meal,
150 pounds dried distiller's grains, 100
pounds cotton seed meal.
(c) 400 pounds corn and cob meal,
200 pounds wheat bran, 100 pounds
cotton seed meal.

Probably Infectious or contagious
abortion causes greater lose to our
dairymen and cattle breeders than any
other ono disease, except tuberculosis.
It Is practically Impossible to estimate
the amount of money lost annually
through abortlou, ns there are no sta
tistics available with respect to the
number of calves lost because of this
disease. A largo portion of the cows
In Kentucky Is of registered stock,
tho calves from those animals arc
valued at fifty dollars or more, the
loss of tho calf alone is serious. The
loss of the calf from a grade cow Is
but a small part of the total loss, for
In the majority of cases tho fetus Is
aborted so early in pregnnncy that the
cow does not freshen and, therefore,
produces little or no milk. A cow may
slip two or three calves In succession,
and, if such Is tho case, sho Is de
prived of her usefulness for a large
part of tho best portion of her life.
Often, Infectious abortion results In
temporary sterility, and only after
many months and repeated attempts
will tho animal bo safely gotten In
All abortions are not caused by nn
Infectious disease. Crowding of ani
mals, a heavy fall, a severe hook or
kick; In Bhort, an Injury of any kind,
poor condition of tho breeding ani
