What Becomes of the Milk. ;
Trained nurses and their field of work I
were being discussed by a prominent t
club of this city a few days ago, and
one of the ladies, in demonstrating the
care of infants, held up a chamois
model of a baby's stomach about as
large as a good-sized oyster, and ex
claimed for her climax: "Now, what

are poured Into that little stomach?"

The possession of a colony already in

a standard with which to compare all
others, and often enables hint to avoid
costly experiments. Another plan, al.s
commendable, is to agree with some
neiglhering bee keeper to deliver as
many first swarms on the day they is

the right start if placed as received in
hives with foundation starters and the
frames properly splaced--one and three

queens. Only those issuing from colo

t should be accepted. Swarms from these
will have queens not over one year old.
It is better to have queens of the
current year's raising, but these can
only be obtained by taking the second
or third swarms from a given hive,
which come later and art smaller, ot
substituting young queens for those
that come with the swarms.

A NEW METHOD WITH HOGS.
The method and success of a farmer
In Franklin County, Ohio, is worthy of
note, writes W. T. Taylor. Bows are
bred to farrow in July of August. As
soon as the litters are old enough to
wean, the sows are taken .away, fat
tened and sold or slaughtered by Jan.
1. The herd of pipg are sept thrifty
and growing through fall and winter.
As soon as blue grass or clover peeps
out in spring they get that, followod
by other pasture range until the last
of Jufme, when a full ration of corn is
fed. By the last of August or Sept. 1
they are ready to sell. Out of this
young herd every spring the most Ilkely
females are taken and bred to farrow
as before, keeping no sows over winter.
This gentleman's methods in this
Ulne are worthy of imitation and his
success as a farmer has been perfectly
sattifactory to him through a succes
sion of years. No doubt the average
price obtained has been above fall and

PLANNING FOR FALL-FRESH
December and January are good
months in which to control and super
vise the service of the bull. Midsum
mer and the dogdays are a good time
for the cow to be dry and prepare to
calve again, and a most unprofitable
and annoying time to make milk or
handle it. The greatest product and r
the richest come at tile season when t
milk and butter are always compara
tively high in price. In actual prac
tice, four fall-fresh cows have been I
found to equal five which calved in
the spring. in twelve months' product, 1
and at about four-fifths the cost.- t

HOW MUCH IS A KNOT?'
Very Few Landsmea Know Its Vale
Expressed in Miles.
In thin day of record breaking by
ocean steamers, when every big steam
er that comes into port is expected to
carry a record hung at a yardarm, so
to speak, how many landsmen know
the meaning of the term "knot," in
which rate of speed at sea is chiefly
expressed? It is purely and wholly a
nautical term, having specific applica
tion to the speed and distance made by
a vessel moving in the water.
The word "knot" is the mariner's
term for a nautical mile, and its use
is really derived from the log line used
by navigators of the ocean when they
wish to determine the speed and the
distance that the ship has probably
sailed in a given time. The log line
is an important and very necessary
part of a ship's fittings; especially is
this the case when, for several days at
sea, the navigator is unable, because
of the sun being hidden by clouds or
thick weather, to get a peep at it with
his sextant, from which the actual po
sition of the ship is worked out. With
the data taken by a frequent heaving
of the log (a small block or section
of wood with a long line attached and
run out from the stern of the vessel
for a specific number of seconds), not
ing the force and direction of the wind,
the possible currents, or other influ
ences acting favorably or against the
progress of the ship, the navigator is
enabled to calculate very nearly, in
overcast or foggy weather, abodt
where his ship is at any hour of the
day. This is called "working out the
position of the ship by dead reckon
Every one who has studied the geo
graphical table in his early school days
will recall that part of the singsong
recitation running like this: "Sixty
nine and one-sixth statute miles, or
sixty geographical miles, equal one de
gree of longitude at the equator."
Now, the difference between a statute
mile and a nautical mile is that the
latter is about 806 feet greater than
the formnner. There are sixty geographi
cal miles to each degree of latitude,
or to each degree of longitude at the
equator, which divisions of miles are
called aminutes" In the nautical vo
cabulary, hence the old saying, "a
mile a minute." As there are 360 de
grees, or meridians, of longitude, there
are 1,600 minutes, or miles, in the en
tire circumference of the world, at the
equator; and it has been mathemati
cally determined that one minute-one
geographical mile-at the equatorial
circle is equal to 6,086.7 feet.- But it
has been the practice of mariners not
to be too exact on small fractions when
measuring distance as great as a mile,
consequently the practice of defining
a knot or nautical mile as equal to
6,080 feet, Instead of 6,086.7 feet, has
been generally adopted.
When the navigator desires to make
a log-line by whicn to ascertain the
speed which his vessel is making
through the water, he follows the con
stant 6,080. As the number of seconds
in an hour are to 6,080 feet, so are the
number of seconds in the time glass
(to be used) for measuring the ship's
speed to the number of feet in each
unit of measurement marked off on the
log-line. If a half minute (30 seconds)
glass is to be used, the knots must be
made 50 feet 8 inches from each other,
and the number of these knots which
pass from the reel over the stern while
the sand is running from the top bulb
to the lower bulb of the glass is equal
to the number of knots or nautical
miles that the vessel would make in
an hour, providing the same condi
tions for speed continue.
For instance, if the engines of a
steamship continue to make the same
speed during the hour, or if the force
of wind and spread of canvass of a
sailing vessel continue the same, the
number of knots on the line passing
from the reel while the sand is run
ning through the thirty-second glass is
as good an actual measurement of the
vessel's speed through the water as
could be obtained, except that the
course should be measured by an aec
tual survey with instruments. It it
was shown that the vessel was making
ten knots, she would cover ten gce
graphical miles, or a little more than
11% land miles, or eleven and a half
times 5,280 (5,280 feet being equivalent
to a land mile). Hence, to speak of
the City of PNris having made 525
knots or nautical miles in twenty-four
hours, she covers a distance of 60414
land miles, as comprehended in rall
road distances, or a rate of 25 land
miles an hour, which Is faster than
many railroad trains travel.-Newv

H. 0. Crandlemlre, of Vaneeboro Maine,
being duly sworn deposes and says: -
"Two years or more ago, 1 was attacked
with kidney trouble which gave me violent
pain, and necessitated my urinating every
few minutes. Then I had times of no control
over my water, and this made things un
bearable. The patn at these times was in
describable, and nothing gave me an; relief
until I was led to try Dr. Williams Pink
Pills. The first box helped me, and by the 1
time I had taken my second I was absolutely
and completely cured. This was two years
ago, and since then I have hat nso return
of the troub!e, and I have no hesitation or
doubt in expressing that I owe my recovery
to Pink Pills.

densed form, all the elements necessary to
give new life and richness to the blood and
restore shattered nerves. They are also a

such as suppreessons, irregularities anti all
forms of weakness. They build up the blood,
and restore the glow of health to pale and
sallow cheeks. In meo they affect a radical
cure in all cases arising from mental worry,
overwork or excesses of whateVer nature.

A certain country doctor, who was
also the village dentist and surgeon,
was a severe-looking man, and had be
sides the reputation of being most "he
roic" in his methods of treatment, so
that many people stood in a kind of
terror of him.
One day he was passing a house that
was in process of building when be saw
a boy fail from a pretty high ladder.
Pulling up his horse the doctor jumped
out of his sulky and hastened to the
"Are you much hurt, my boy?" he -
asked, as he came near.
"No, sir," answered the boy, spring
ing to his feet and hobbling away as
fast as he could. "No, sir, not a bit.
In fact. I feel all the better."

A III'E TO WOMEN
Fomn Mrm. James Corrigma.
For seventeen years I have suffered.
Periods were so very painful that I
would have to go to the doctor every .
He said that I had an enlargement of
the womb, and told my husband that I
must undergo an
operation, as I had
tumors in the
womb, and it
was a case of
life or death.
I was ope
twice, but it
did not seem
to do me any
good, it made
me very weak.
I was troubled
with the len
corrhn a a
I also suffer
ed with the
ache all the
time, terrible pain in my left side, chills,
loss of appetite, and could not sleep
nights. After taking severalbottlesof
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, some Liver Pills, and using your
Sanative Wash, I recovered.
I can eat well, and every one that
sees me tells me I am a different per
son. I can do all my own work, sleep
well and feel well I am growing
stronger every day, and am able to go
out and enjoy a walk and not fiel all
tired out when I return, as I used to. I
doctored for sixteen years, and in all
those years I did not feel as well as I do
at the present time. I wish that every
woman that is troubled as I was, would
try that medicine. Oh I it is so good
to feel well, and it is all owing to Mrs.
Pinkham's kind advice and medicine.
