Training Course in Butter, Cheese
(Prepared by Office of Publications,
University Farm. St Paul.)
With the installation of new equip
ment for dairy manufacturers work
at University Farm, the dairy divi
sion will be able to offer complete
practical training along with theory
for the two remaining dairy short
courses this winter, according to Profe
J. R. Keithley, in charge of the
courses. Dairy students from now
on will have equipment for the man
ufacture of butter, cheese, ice cream
and the handling of market milk and
refrigeration of dairy products. The
total investment represented by these
five units is about $7,500. Although
all the equipment is not new, it is in
first class condition.
The annual creamery operators'
short course will come Jan. 2 to Feb.
11 and will be followed by the cheese
plant operators' short course, which
begins Feb. 13 and ends March 11.
The average experience of the 6Q men
who attended the creamery course
last year was approximately three
years. This course has been given
at University Farm for about 30 years

Wilt Resistant for Flax.
(Prepared by Office of Publications,
University Farm, St. Paul.)
Minnesota experiment station and
sub-station men have united in recom
mending the following varieties pf
farm crops for planting in Minnesota
during the season of 1922. The most
promising varieties are determined by
carefully controlled experimental
tests which are carried on at the vari
ous stations. The final decision as to
which variety to recommend is made
after a winter conference of central
and sub-station investigators. All the
recommendations are based upon the
results of careful field trials. Vari
eties produced by other states or by
seedsmen are as .freely recommended,

Grain Mixture for Lambs.
Professor Peters says that early
lambs should receive what grain
they care to eat from a creep protect
ed from the ewes, beginning as soon
as they start to eat and continuing
until the pasture is good. A grain
mixture of 30 per cent ground oats,
30 per cent ground corn or barley, 30
per cent bran and 10 per cent oilmeal
is good for this purpose.
All lambs should be docked when
they are from 10 to 14 days old and
rams should be castrated when six
weeks old. In Minnesota ewes should
be shorn as soon as they begin to
show effects of the rising temperature.
May being the usual time. A few
days after shearing both ewes and
lambs should be dipped in some stand
ard dip preparation. If they have no
ticks, one dipping is enough, but if
they have they should be dipped
again ten days later.
Retaining Breeding Stock.
Livestock producers of the corn
belt are realizing more and more each
year that the greatest profits from
livestock are realized over a period
of years by that type of management
whereby some breeding stock is re
tained and the young stock produced
is kept right on the farm, grown out
and fattened to fill the demands for
which the market will pay the high
est prices, according to W. H. Peters,
professor of animal husbandry at the
University of Minnesota, This meth
od of management, ho says, makes It
possible for the fanner to develop a
herd of breeding stock of the right
type by careful selection and proper
feeding, ft makes It possible for him
to produce a uniform lot of feeder ani
mals of the right typev

Youthful Artist Had Excellent Reason
for Leaving Out Characters In
A primary class in one of the grade
schools was asked to Illustrate a
story that had been read to the little
ones by the teacher. The story -told
of three children going to a wood in
a goat wagon, and staying until the
sun wnt down. Most of the pictures
showed the goat with big horns pulling
the .wagon containing the children,
and a sun going down behind a hill.
One of the small girls in the class
handed in a picture showing merely
a hill and some grass.
"Why, what does your picture
mean?" Inquired the teacher. "Where
are the goat and.the children?"

But Some People Will Doubt Whether
Such a Man Will Ever Get
A young man in Missouri was col

from an old gentleman who was noted
for his closeness.
When the young man had stated his
mission and asked for the dollar, the
elderly person asked:
"Well, young man, how old are
"I am twenty-five," said the youth.
"Well," continued the old gentle
man, "I am seventy-five years old, and
as you are only twenty-five years, I

sooner than you. I will hand him the
dollar myself. ^Pittsburgh Dispatch.
There are no true century plants In
the sense that It takes them 100 years
to bloom. A number of plants, how
ever, do not bloom until they have
lived for a long term of years. The
classic example of such plants is the
talipot palm of India which lives for
50 years or more and becomes a tall
tree before It blooms. After it has
sent .up Its Immense flowergtalk the
whole plant dies. Our American "cen
tury plants" often fruit at the end of
eight or ten years under natural con
ditions, bnt in the bouse may refuse
to bloom at all. Many of the bamboos
act like the century plants and bloom
but once after a long period of vege
tation. Such species are known as
monacarplc plants.Science Service.
The olden umbrella was made.with
six, eight, ten and even up to sixteen
ribs, while some of the Japanese and
paper umbrellas have as many as 40
ribs. Whalebone was the favorite sub
stance for ribs, although rattan was
frequently used. Metal took Its place,
bnt was heavy and clumsy. Then
there arose a genius, Samuel Fox, of
England, who in 1852 patented his fa*
mous "paragon rib," which Is still in
use. In 1848 alpaca was first used as
a covering material, but It, too, wasson,

fabrics have been used, most popu

DICE LONG KNOWN TO WORLD
Amusement Is Probably the Most An
cient Game, According to Records
of Old Writers.
The eldest amusement In the world
In some form or atfother, dice have
existed in every period of history.
They are shown on early Egyptian
monuments, and some dug up at
Thebes recently are exactly similar to
those In use today. They are men
tioned in laws regulating games
played In ancient Greece and Rome
and most other countries In Europe.
The invention of dice is attributed
to Palamedes, one of the heroes who
sailed against Troy, about the year
1244 B. C, but the use of cubes with
numbered sides for gambling purposes
Is probably much earlier.
Frequent passages in the works of
ancient writers and numerous repre
sentations in marble and paintings
show how popular dice-playing was

CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP/
FOR CHILD'S BOWELS
Even a sick child loves the "fruity"
taste of "California Fig Syrup." If the
little tongue is coated, or if your child
is listless, cross, feverish, full of cold,
or has colic, a teaspoonful will never
fall to open the ToweJs In* a few
hours you can see for yourself how
thoroughly it works all the constipa
tion poison, sour bile and waste from
the tender, little bowels and gives you
a well, playful child again.
Millions of mothers keep "California
Fig Syrup" handy. They know a tea
spoonful today saves a sick child to
morrow. Ask your druggist for genuine
"California Fig Syrup" which has di
rections for babies and children of all
ages printed on bottle. MotherJ Yon
must say "California" or you may get
an imitation fig syrup.Advertisement.
