FOR KICKING COWS.
! Arrutcment That Will Ef
fect a Care.
I have found the plan illustrated be
low a Tery good one for kicking cows.
A pole three inches in diameter and the
length of stall is swung in front
through a rope loop in the top of manger
near the feed box. At the rear, about
10 inches from the floor, is a piece of
plank 14 or 16 inches wide, with several
auger holes from the left to right large
enough to receive the end of the pole.
When a cow is disposed to kick, I tie
, A, r:,;

AN ANTI-KICKING STABLE 1EVILE.
her head to a ring in front, put the pole
through the rope loop, crowd her over
against the partition, and put the rear
end of pole in one of the auger holes in
the plank. Next pass a rope around
left leg above the gambrel, bring it up
in front of right leg, draw tight and
fasten to a ring in rear of stall. The
rope prevents kicking, keeps the cow at
a hoist, and pole keeps her from swing
ing round or falling down. After a few
times it is hardly ever necessary to
nse the ropes, as the pole put pretty
low down will be sufficient to keep her I
quiet, P.esiles the pole, the illustration I
portrays the plan of my milking stable.
There are two shelves, the upper about
live feet from the floor (not shown)
and running clear across the stable. In
this I keep sponge and cloths to wash
and wipe the cow's udder, a dish of salt,
milking stools, etc. The lower shelf,
about two feet froni tbeflnornnd reach
ing1 about two-thirds -;is, Is for
empty pails, milk, etc. Shovel and fork
are kept in the rack at end of this shelf.

Cooklnc Food for Stork Is Xot a Prut.
We have tried several plans of pre
paring feed for stcck and have come to
the conclusion that it is only in excep
tional cases that it cau be considered
advisable to cook the food. Under wiiat
may be considered average conditions,
the additional gain secured with the
stock will not pay a fair profit for the
extra work j-qiiired to cook.
With the dairy c-OttS, jjTWing
calves and pigs, it pays tr RVind the
ted corn, wheat or oaK fcs. the kind
of grain being fed my be. With sheaf
oats, no matter what Kini of stock they
are fed to, wis like to run them
through a good cutting-box, and
then add R small quantity of wheat
bran, tir.d feed in this way. By this
plan there is little or no waste in
'periling and a very complete ration is
nade up. But with the average teams
kept on the place, the growing beef
cattle and the thrifty, vigorous sheep,
there is no particular advantage in
'grinding the rain. Even with the
classes of stock named, in a majority
of cases to make grinding the grain
pay a good profit, a feed mill should
be owned and operated on the farm,
as the expense and work of hauling to a
mill and back, with the cost of
grinding, will lessen very materially
the possible profit. Where any consid
erable number of stock is kept a mill
can, in a majority of cases, be mad?
to pay. We are inclined to think that
more or less of this work of advocating
cooked food, through the' press, is fr,oro
parties interested in selling seme kind
of cooking apparatus.
There is one good advantage in grind
ing grain and in cutting roughness,
that is, a better opportunity is afforded
of making up complete rations. Ohic
The rich gold mines of the Elondyke are in Canada, Duties averaging 25 per
cent, of the cost of every outfit bought anywhere in the United States must be
paid by every person going to these mines upon entering Canadian territory.
The customs post established at the foot of Lake Tagish is at the junction of
the Skagway and Dyea trails over which the goldseekers travel on their way
to the Klondyke. It is guarded by an armed force of twenty-five men.
The miners who bought their supplies at Seattle and other places in the
United States were an angry crowd when they arrived at the Tagish lake cus
toms post. Those who had cash had to pay 25 per cent, of the cost of their
outfits, and those who did not have money had either to give up one-quarter of
their year's provisions or remain at the post for a few weeks sawing wood and
helping to erect the government barracks. The men who had bought theirout
fits in Victoria, which is in Canada, upon showing their papers passed on with
out delay and without payment. Some of them were lucky enough to find rich
mines at Klondyke before those detained at Lake Tagish, sawing wood for
duties, were able to reach the dijrgings.
The railway fares ire the same to Victoria as Seattle and miners' supplier
are as cheap. Miners for the Klondyke who buy their outfits at Victoria, from
which steamers for the mines are leaving almost daily, will save one-quarter
of the cost of their outfits by purchasing at that city which is the capital and
commercial center of British Columbia.
Those fntending to go to the Klondyke in the spring should write to the Sec
retary of thg IJsard of Trade, Victoria, B. C, who will freely supply all infor
mation asked for.

MAKING SMALL CHEESE.
Seven Pound In an Excellent Welsh t
for Family Cue.
A great deal of inquiry has been made
(his season for some means by which
families with perhaps only two or j
three cows could make full-cream
cheese of their milk whenever they
might for any reason choose to do so.
Families want cheese as well as butter.
Sometimes butter is very low, says
lractical Farmer, and again the weath
er is too warm for the ordinary farm
er to make a good quality of butter,
because be has not the necessary con
veniences for keeping milk and cream
at the proper temperature. At such
times and under such circumstances.
If the milk could easily be made into
a good quantity of cheese at home, it
would be p matter of much importance,
not only in the north, but especially in
the south, where, as a rule, ice is not
to be had to aid in butter-making. The
Pennsylvania agricultural college has
been working on the line of making
small cheese to meet the exigency of
these conditions. They have been mak
ing a cheese of about seven pounds
weight. This makes a cheese of good
size for handling and for family
use. It is reported that Prof. Hayward.
of that institution, says there has been
a ready sale for all that has been made
in that vicinity, and more could have
been sold. The price received is 13
cents a pound, equal to 26 cents for

In a conversation with Mr. F. Q. Car
penter, Mrs. Grant relates une of Bis
marck's grim witticisms. The general
and Mrs. Grant, while at Berlin, were
fchown by Bismarck the war chamber,
where the commission to settle the
terms of the Uusso-Turkish peace was
then aittiug. Said Mrs. Grant; "The
chamber was empty at the time, and
he pointed out the chairs in nliicb. the
different commissioners sat, showing
me his chair, that of Becousiield and
others. As he did so I asked hiia what
it was all for, and he looked at me evi
dently very much surprised at my ap
parent ignorance. 1 hastened to arr
buer that I knew that it was to settle
the terms of the war between the Rus
sians and the Tuiks. but 1 cuu-d not
see what Uie Germans had to do with
lU Prince Bismarck straightened him
self up. His face at first was quite
sober, but his miMitli soon softened in
to a smile, and he replied.: To toll you
the truth, madam, Uussia has taken
too much Turkey, and vve are ilelpiug
her to digest it." Oucagu Times-Herald.
Cost of Making- Batter.
How many farmers who keep a but-
ter dairy have reckoned how much their
product costs them? Only a very small
proportion of average farmers have
done so. Yet that is the first principle
of good business, whether in farmintj
or anything else. We knew a fannei
once who reckoned that, taking tbe
vhole year together, his buttei had cost
him HVi cents a pound. His cow
were, however, much better than the
average, and though his butter was ol
first quality, it cost him less than tin
poor quality of butter of most farm
ers did. and which thev sold at a loss.

terest Bad speculation. Lord, Mel
hO'llue, as prime minister, felt th"
matter to be one in which he was ett
titled to obtain information, if possible.
So he inquired of the queen, as nearly
as he could, whether there was any in
dividual for whom she entertained any
preference. Her majesty was a little
taken aback, and inquired whether he
put the question as a matter of state
policy. If so, she would endeavor to
give him an answer. Lord Melbourne
replied that he did, and that under no
other circumstances would he have
ventured to intrude in so delicate a
matter. -'Then," said the queen,
"there is one person for whom I enter
tain, a deoided preference." "Yes?"'
said Lord Melbourne, expecting to bear
a great secret. "And that is that is,"
said the queen, "the duke of Welling

Faw women, outside of royalties,

and perhaps only oue has had the ex

withoat having proposed to him. There
was one, and Hon. L. A. Tollemache
tells the story in his "Personal Memoir
of Benjamin Jowett," master of liaV

was potenkand penetrating, and good
women felt its fascination. Aa under
graduate was ill at BaiUol college, and
his sister, coming to Oxford to nurse
him, was invited bv Dr. Jowett to
stay at his house. She received from
him the utmost kindness and attention,
and when leaving said, with much
hesitation, that she would venture to
ask a very great fa-vor. She again
hesitated; the master grew uneasy
and looked interrogative. "Will you
marry me?'' at last she asked. He paced
up and down, blushed deeply, and re
plied: "That would not be good either
for you or for me." "Ohl oh!" ex

A JLlKhthoune-KeHpMr'N Complaint.
Lighthouse-keepers do not seem -to
feel their lonely life. I once spent a
week on Scotland lightship, near the
entrance to New York harbor. The
assistant keeper was in charge, and he
was nearly stone deaf. He had not
been ashore for three months, and
even a newspaper came to him only by
chance from time to time, when a pilot
boat stopped by on her way out of the
harbor. From sunrise until nine o'clock
at night he did little else but sit on a
hatchway, smoking an old pipe and
gazing reflectively at the great harbor
receiving and dismissing its thousands
of vease's. One day he asked me to use
my influence to get him tranf erred to
Cape Cod, I asked him why he wished to
change. "Well," said he, very seriously,

here; I want to be where there is less

The los of the hair is one of the most
serious losses a woman can undergo.
Beautiful hair gires many a woman a
claim to beauty which would be utterly
wanting if the locks were short and
scanty. It is almost as serious a loss when
the natural hue of the hair begins to fade,
and the shining tresses of chestnut and
auburn are changed r-j gray or to a laded
shadow of their former brightness. Such
a loss is no longer a necessity. There is
one remedy which may well be called a
great remedy by reason of its great suc
cess in stopping the falling of the hair.
cleansing the scalp of dandruff, and re
storing the lost color to gray or faded
tresses. Dr. Aver s Hair Vigor is a stand
ard and reliable preparation, in use in
thousands of homes, and recommended by
everyone who has tested it and expert,
enced the remarkable results that follow
its use. It makes hair grow. It restores
the original color to hair that has turned
gray or faded out. It stops hair from fall,
ing, cleanses the scalp of dandruff, and
gives the hair a thickuess and gloss that
so other preparation can produce.
Mrs. Herrmann, of 356 Bast 68th St, New

"A little more than a year ago, my hair
began turning gray and falling out and)
although I tried ever so many thing to
