CONTROL OF GERMAN CITIES
The Mayor, or Burgomaster In That
Country, la Elected for a Term
of Twelve Years.
German cities are perhaps the best
governed of any in the world. The
German burgomaster, or mayor, 1b
selected by the council for a term, in
many instances, of t-.velve years, is
I generally re-eiectea to ti becouu itrin
and is thereafter eligible to a pen
He is selected because of Ills spe
cial fitness, and training for the work
is as elaborate as training for the
physician or lawyer iu this country.
When a German mayoralty is vacant
candidates from other cities present
themselves to the council with their
German burgomasters are far better
paid than American mayors. They
have' a corps of trained assistants
who also are specialists with definite
trinlne for their particular work. The
Police department is under the dlreo-
tion of the central government Muni-
dpal ownership Is both common and
profitable. Street railways and water
works are operated at a profit Some
cltlea operate savings banks which
have accumulated vast surpluses to
loan to people who buy nomea
This country has nrach to learn
from Germany in the management of
its municipal affairs. Our system is
notoriously cumbersome and Ineffl
clent' We have Intrusted our ideals
cial Interests. We cannot have a gov-
ernment of the whole people, for the
whole people or by the whole people
as long as we permit the city to be
ruled with a shepherds crook.

HABIT OF EXCHANGING EGGS
Little Money and No Satisfaction
Practice Best to Sell Direct
to the Consumer.
There is no satisfaction, and but
very little money In exchanging eggs
for groceries or grain. By being care
ful In gathering egzs, so that they
won't become chilled in winter and so
the hens wont sit on them overnight
and using a little care in sizing and
selecting, quite an advance over the
common prioes may be obtained.
When possible, sell your eggs direct
to the consumer. If not possible, get
a market In your nearest city with
some grocer who deals in strictly
fancy groceries and provisions. Agree
to furnish him only strictly fresh
eggn, and then, for your own sake,
live up to your agreement Carefully
clean all the eggs; don't send any
small, luibuhapun or large ones. Stamp
each egg with a rubber stamp, using
your Initials or the name of your
farm, and in a short time you will
have created a demand for your eggs,
and when you have created such a de
mand your eggs will bring the highest
prices, considerably more than your
storekeeper would pay.
Several neighbors could send their
eggs together, paying a cent or two
per dozen to one of their number for
doing the business, and in this way
all would gain a little.
Cold Storaoe Tests.
Tests of cold storage, as made by
one of the experts of the department
of agriculture led to the conclusion
that poultry keeps better .when not
drawn than It does when drawn. The,
reason is that the process of drawing
causes bruises which Invite the lodg
ment of germs. Birds that were dry
picked kept much better than those
which had been scalded. The experts
summed up the requirements as
prompt storage, dry picking and dry
chilling. These eseentlals have all
been favorable to the cold-storage
trade, but seem never to be com
prehended by the host of agitators
which every year try to secure ab
surd cold-storage laws.
Open Muslin Front Best
A glass front poultry house causes
extremes in temperature, warming np
i In the day time and then turning cold
with the setting of the sun. This Is
also apt to cau so disease and make
the fowls' combs and wattles more
sensitive to frosts. The open muslin
front Is by far the best and at the
1 same time the least expensive. Some
i glass may be used, but not exclusive-
