Professor Storer says a ration of thirty
pounds of pumpkin per cow daily will in

Raising flowers for the manufacture of
perfumery is becoming a new industry in
Florida under the encouragement of

lillies and jonquils, are hardy and yield
rich harvests under cultivation.
"It's no trouble to winter sheep," said
an old flock-master to us, once; but the
rub is in springin' 'em." That was be
cause he did not winter them well. The
steady cold of winter keeps the system
keyed up, and the poorest feed is eaten
with some relish and benefit; but unless
the sheep has been kept on a high level
the warm, debilitating breath of spring
will let it down fatally.
There is much difference in the milk
of different animals and breeds, and
much depends upon the food and condi
tion of the cow. It is very unusual to
find less than 2,5 or more than 8 per cent
of tat, less than 5 or more than 30 per
cent, of the volume of the mi.ic, of cream,
less than 10.5 or more than 17 per cent,
of solids, or less than 83 or more than
89.50 per cent, of water in pure milk.
Professor Green, of the Minnesota State
Agricultural college, has completed his
experiments to ascertain the relative
value of frosted grain for seed. His re
port shows that from 40 to 90 per cent of
the total amount planted will sprout and
grow. He says that the experiments
may be relied upon, and hereafter far
mers may plant frosted grain with the
assurance that it will grow, rather than
run in debt for other seed. The Dal
rymples of Dakota will give frosted seed
a thorough test.
In discussing "Stock-Growing in Agri
culture," a Western writer makes one
point which is too often disregarded. He
avers that the stock-growing farm can be
made self-supporting, which is not the
case with all other branches of agricult
ure. For it must be remembered that
barn-yard manure is the basis of success
ful farming. It costs nothing but the
saving, and it is a complete manure for
all crop productions, and therefore in
growing food necessary for the stock the
fertility of the soil can be maintained,
which otherwise is sure to deteriorate.
Shorthorn breeders in several western
states are discussing the future of the
breed, and comments indicate the various
stages of education of different breeders.
Some would arbitrarily cull herd* and
condemn certain strains. Some would
feed heavier, others would avoid milking
and others still, would encouoage milk
ing. Many have yet to learn that the
normal condition of a Shorthorn cow is
the milling condition and not the
butcher condition; that the Shorthdrns
should be tested as milk cows for milk
and as steers for beef, but that breeding
cows should only be kept in breeding
condition and not in condition for the
butcher. Overfeeding for fatness will
, not only destroy milking characteristics,
1 bat it will also destroy breeding.

"But what sort of rations are fur
nished?" I asked.
"Chiefly rice," he said. "That i«,;
rice is the chief staple of Chinese'
food at home and abroad, and if it ia
properly cooked a Chiaaman will rare
ly grumble. But we take out a small
quantity of meat to cook with it. We
also take large quantities of beans
red beans, white beans, black beans,
brown beans, every kind of bean that
China produces, and beana are cheap
there. You would laugh to hear how
sheap. Then we furnish orange peel
for a relish, of which the Chine -c are
fond; also dried shrimps and a variety
of dried fish, and for an-oceasional bit
of dessert dried abatone. But the
thing we have to be the most particu
lar about is the "chows.' "
"What are those—the sauces?"
"Yes, the chew-chows. We take out
25 different kinds of these chows! It
seems as if every Chinaman has a par- 1
ticular kind that he prefers. As they
eat their rice and fish and beans, they
keep tasting these.
"Of course, we got them cheap in
Hong Kong. They don't cost like
Worcestershire sauce. Altogether these,
immigrants get as good tood on ship-,
board as they get at home; in fact they
often fat up with us.
"Now, what do you suppose it cost
as a day to feed each one of these 1,500*
Chinese on our last trip?"
"Fifteen cents—for a guess."

large total of human misery. Ono i:'.
the most annoying experience* of a
civilized race is the MB(*Mfs and
troublesome attentioni ihat an able
bodied cold demands.
There are iriore ways of treating a
cold tlpin there are denomination^l
■ systems for leading a correct Ifte.
i Nearly every physician has a different
i remedy and a congregation of remedies
\ and there is not a layman who does
I not know something that will cu-e
I quicker than any thing else. Mention
! to your friends tfiat you have a cold
i and you will get enough varying pres
criptions to fill a small-size I eneycto
pedia. Try them all aad you will
either cure your cold or make yourself
a confirmed invalid. Many an inno
cent person in tho possession of fair
health has become a source of wealth
to doctors because of superabundant
advice of friends and acquaintances.
Of course, the best way is to keep
yourself in good condition, so that the
system can resist the attacks of dis
ease. When once you get a cold, how
! ever, you should take it in hand imme
f diately and consult a physician. Tho
I method of letting colds take care of
! themselves is a good way to invite
i yourself to a funeral. A suggestion
that comes from a physician of large
practice in Washington will prove in
teresting, and it may be valuable. He
finds, he says, that colds are due to
plethora and the remedy he uses is
[ starvation. "To make the benefit per-
I manent," he says, "let the patient ab
stain from food, both solid and liquid,
for twenty-four hours, and then let
him take a Turkish or Russian bath or
a brisk walk, or both, and he will find
his experiment to result in a perma
nent benefit." He states further: "H
eating but one. meal per day, (an e<
periment which I tried for over &
year) I found that I was absolutely
exempt from every symptom of the
disease, and nearly so upon resuming
the two-meal system, which I now fol
low. But the three-meal system,
subject as I am to the catarrh dia'.he
] sis, gave me constant symptoms of ple
(uwrs« wiich shows itself in catarrhal
discharges, colds and bronchitis. Ona
member of my family, noted for being
a very light eater, never has ;i sympfosr
of tho disease, never finds a handker
chief necessary, never needs even to
clear the throat." This is the result
of common-sense moderation in eating.
Gormandizing is always dnngerous,
and the perpetual eater has to pay for
his pleasures in doctor bills. Temper
ance in food is as necessary to health
as temperance in drink.
The starvation plan is undoubtedly
a cheap one, and it can not do much
harm to try it. although it may go de
cidedly against the grain to make the
experiment when the patient it stop
ping at a high-priced American hotel.
The national trait of getting one's
moneys worth would stand In the way.
Still, good health is better than eat
ing for spite, and if a day's starvation
doesn't result beneficially there are
several thousand other remedies that
can be tried.—Baltimore American.

ago he shocked his fiithor—who is tha

joined a wine merchant's business, in
which he has prospered bo well that

be honest, an' most always have been,
but when I seed that calf I caved. I
never wanted a calf so bid in my life,
