The claims of cocoa as a useful article of diet are steadily
winning recognition. Unlike tea and coffee, it is not only a
stirr ulant but a nourisher; and it has the great advantage of
leaving no narcotic effects. Hence it is adapted to general
use. The strong may take it with pleasure, and the weak

GOLDEN RUSSET APPLES.
chants claim that in cold storage the
Golden Russets may be kept nntil the
early snmmer arples appear.
The Roxbury Rnsset is another late
keeper; indeed some claim that, while
inferior in quality to many other kinds,
it will keep longer than any other ap
ple in the market. The Ben Davis.
Baldwin and Willow Twig are three
valuable late keepers, whose character
istics are too well known to need de
scription. Newtown Pippin and Mann,
lawle's Janet, Romanite and Wine Sap
are other varieties noted for their long
Jemeys, GueroHeya and Alderneya.
Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney are
the names of three islands situated in
the English channel near the French
coast, and which, with a few smaller
ones, form the group known as the Chan
nel islands. The cattle of these islands
are similar in most respects, and have
been known by the general appellation
of Channel island cattle, although when
first introduced into this country they
were all called Alderneys. They were
all more or less distinguished for their
dairy product But while this is a com
mon and general characteristic of the
cattle of the Channel islands, those of
each of the islands named are kept dis
tinct and no crossing is permitted;
neither are live cattle from any other
country permitted to be brought into
any of these islands other than for im
mediate slaughter for beef. The cattle
of the island of Jersey and those of Al
derney resemble each other more closely,
perhaps, than those of Jersey and
Guernsey, but the points of difference
between the cattle of all these islands
are so slight that they might with some
propriety all be classed as a single breed.
The Guernseys will average more than
the Jerseys, and the Jerseys will aver
age larger than the Alderneys. There is
no speciiil distinction between the cattle
of these several islands in the matter of
color. Pawn color, squirrel gray, light
and dark brown, with or without white
markings, are very common. The
Guernseys and Alderneys perhaps have
a larger proportion of the light fawn
and yellowish shJOeto than the Jerseys.
