Then will come the hearing of the

BUT A GOOD SIRE.
It has been demonstrated again
and again that the cheapest invest
ment that can be made by a farmer
who is trying to build up the stand
ard of a herd of cattle lies in the
purchase of a good bull. It is not
necessary to buy several high priced
females as a bails for the average
herd, nor is it economical. The most
economical results can be obtained
by buying a bull with masculinity
enough behind his good breeding to
stamp his likeness uppn the calves
A striking proof of this has been
shown on the cattle show circuit at
various state fairs this fall. One of
many instances-will suffice. Recently
a prominent state fair judge had to
choose between two cows with the
same dam but sired by different bulls,
for the female championship of the
breed. So strikingly .similar in type
was each of them to its own sire,
though the dam was the same, that
there was no trouble in distinguish
ing between the two. The one that
had been produced by the more out
standing sire was so superior to the
one that had been produced by the
less superior bull that there was no
trouble about the selection.
The principle illustrated is of prac
tical value to the farmer who is
thinking of beginning a herd with
limited capital, or who has a very
common herd that he desires to grade
up An average grounp of calves will
be far superior to their commonly
bred mothers if a good bull is used
Such a bull can be purchased very
reasonably if proper care is taken by
the purchaser.Ray P. Speer, Min

PREPARE TO FIGHT DISEASE.
So many hundred people in Minne
sota are dying each month from pre
ventable diseases that all mtlli
gent persons are trying to stop this
suffering and soirow Diseases like
consumption and typhoid fever are
due more to carelessness and filth
than anything else Many clubs and
other organizations are taking ad
vantage of the long winter evenings
to plan cooperative work in helping
stamp out preventable diseases
This is the most sane way of at
tempting to cut down the economic
loss from preventable diseases In
some places clubs are studying the
local milk situation, discussing filth
and fly breeding places, investigat
ing poor sanitation, and noting how
many babies are needlessly blind
Any of these lines of work will re
veal conditions which will force ac

NO IDLERS UANAL ami:
That Busy Community Is Said to be
the Most Orderly In th
In all this wide, wide world the,
most orderly community is that of the
Panama canal aone, writes Mary Gay
Humphreys In Scribner's. Here la the
least crime here are the fewest ml*
demeanors, the least exercise of the,
functions of the courts, the most in.
dustrious, the fewest idlers, absolutely
no poor, equally conspicuous the abi
once of the rich.
With Its steam shovels working like
sentient beings, its locomotives rusk
lng about like screaming buaybodles,
its cement buckets skimming over the
earth and riding the air to perform
their varied tasks, with the long dfai
trains weaving and turning on their
tortuous tracks like pythons, still the
most persistent impression Is of beau
ty, orderliness and propriety.
The greatest public work the world
has ever seen is carried on not only
with unremitting diligence, enthusl
asm and honesty, but with elegance,
a high standard of living and a morale,
to which the oldest and most opulent
cities hare never attained.
These are the words of truth and
soberness. The problems of the en*
glneer are greater than man baa ever
before encountered, but In kind. The
cubic yards of dirt and cement trail,
scend experience, but 'only in bulk,
It la the organlsatlbn that la without
precedent in the whole history of pub
lic worksIt la this that is the eighth
wonder of the world.
In this organisation there la no de*
tall so minute not to have received
attention from the most puzzling
problems in engineering to the Amerir
can youth's love of ice cream nothing
seems to have been left unconsidered.
This elaboration of detail has doubt
less been gradual, but to the visitor
coming upon its completeness today
the impression is staggering and not
unmixed with envy.
Killed With Billiard Ball.
M. Lefant and M. Melfant In Sep

A man with a hair lip strolled into a
saloon one day, orderd a drink and,
after "putting it away," offered to
match the bartender for the price of it.
The bartender consented, and, taking
out a coin, threw it into the ais and
told the hair-lip man to "call" it The
coin came down and the bartender's

"Is that what you mean?" asked the
bartender, lifting his hand, exposing

walked out, leaving the bartender to
