LITTLE ONES AT THE TABLE

Old-fashioned bibs nro coming In

child to wear a bib whon It Is old
enough to loam tho use of a napkin.
For n time tho napkin mny bo fast

ns soon as posslblo ho Bliould be
taught that cultured peoplo novcr fas
ton their napkins to their collars or
dresses, but allow them to He ncross

crumple tholr napkins. A napkin, aft

the excoption that tho folds are Ioobo
whllo and after using. It is never too
young to learn tablo manners.

It Is Just as Easy to Sell Vegetables
my Y,'. MILTON KELLY.)
It has always been moro or less of
an unsettled point as to how much
constituted a bushel, or how much wo
shall glvo or tnko for a bushel of
vegetables. Tho consumer can "sel
dom estimate how long a bushel or
barrel of any kind of producp will last,
oven though ho uses nboutHho samo
Tho slzo of tho bushel la usually
regulated by tho prlco of tho article
bought, as with potatoes, If they are
cheap, tho producer and middleman
give liberal measure, but when they
aro high and they know that thoy are
mastors of tho situation, thoy glvo
tho consumer very small measure.
They philosophically arrive at tho con
clusion that thoy should be woll paid
for their produco and the expense ot
At Buch times tho measure Is not
carefully filled or rounded up and
tho buyer haa to tako what Is given
him. On tho other hand, It tho pota
toes ore cheap, tho grower and tho
middleman havo lost tho vantage
ground they held and nro willing to
fill up tho measures rounding.
The samo by-play goes on between
tho dealefand tho man who buys tho
article for his homo use, only of
course, it is more skilfully played
than In tho former caso In ordor that
tho dealer may mako an honest living.
Who has not bought vegetables for
family uso at different times and been
surprised at the difference in tho num
ber of pecks that constituted a bushel
or barrel of potatoes?
How mucn moro slmplo It would be
to placo ono or a dozen heads of cab
bage on a scalo and sell it for bo much,
than It Is to lump them off for so
much a head, which Is a tedious task
to both tho buyer and the seller.
Ah a general thing, cabbages are not
nil of one slzo or weight; very lnrgo
heads ore often very tight, and unless
tho buyer Is an expert In tho business
ho Is frequently deceived by tho np
poarnnco of tho lot. The wholo sys
torn of selling vegetables by measure
Instead ot by weight, constitutes a
cheating game and places honeBty at

Dairy work la no longer guess work,
but science Slmplo it Is true, but all

Tho working ration does not mean
crowding tho cow beyond her normal
capacity, making her short-lived, and
tho cost ot production extremely high;
but rathor a ration that will maintain
her In good physical condition, pro

Barrels of potatoes vary In size from
ono to threo pecks and as thore Is no
Inducement to pack in largo barrels,
small ones nro used and sell for the
samo price to tho trade. Every deal
er should buy by tho hundred pounds
and bo willing to sell by the same
wolghta; but ns It 1b now, the dealers
want big weight ot tho growers and
to deal out tho produco to tho trade
by the measure.
It Is Just as easy to sell vegetables
by tho pound, ns It la to sell grain or
sugar and other commodities, . and
there la no reason why the dealer
should not sell on tho samo basis ot
measure as ho buyer.
Wo have seen growers soil potatoes
on tho city markets when overy bushot
would mako five pecks of tho grocory
man's size well rounded up. It Is a
fact that theso measures were further
reduced before they got Into the
homes ot the consumers.
Making Good Silage.
Sorghum and corn In about equal
parts mako good ensilage. The corn
requlroa from ono hundred and ten
to ono hundred nnd forty daya after
planting to ripen for sllago, while the
sorghum requires from seventy-five to
ninety daya. This should be taken
Into consideration when tho two crops
aro intended for mixed silage.
Growth of Cattle Business.
Speaking at a convention of the Pan
handlo and Southwestern Stockmen
recently President W. D. Slaughter
predicted the greatest growth the
country has ever known In the cattle
business. Ho did not believe that tho
shipment of beet from other countries
would affect tho cattle business here.
Plant Corn for Silage.
Corn for Bllago. should bo planted
and cultivated In tho same way as
when It Is to bo harvested for the
grain only. Thicker planting gives
more tonnage, but less per cent grain.
In cultivating corn let your culti
vations bo such that you will conserve
what moisture thore Is In the ground.
Clean Out Drain Ditch.
Open up and clean out every drain
ditch on tho placo.
High priced feed nnd low prices for
milk or Its products, Is a very undo-'
alrablo combination, but It la some
times economy to submit to a present
loss, rather than allow a'mlllc flow to
go by default.
