To Flere Farmers.
The department of agriculture at
Washington is investigating a new
kind of swindle which has been
brought to i s attention by a num
ber oi vietin . The scheme is to
fleece farmers, and coi.nists of a
gik-edge b ltter compound,"1 which
is being adv rti-ed throng.' agricul
tural newor:pers and also by circu
lars and postal cards. According to
the advertisement, a pinch of the
compound pi t into a churn with a
pound of s"f . butter will transfer
the latter i;;t i two pounds of good
butfr. The compound is simply
pepsin. Mixed with butter it pro
duces an emi Ision which enables the
butter to talc? up an equal weight of
milk without altering.its appearance
materially. Any other digestive fer
ment, such as rennet, will accom
plish the same result. The "com
pound" is sol 1 at the rate of $2.50
for a two ounee box, the actual value
being about 3 cents. One disadvant
age of its use is that butter manu
factured in the way described quick
ly spoils. It is an' adulterated food
product, and should be prohibited
by law. One firm has declared its
intention to spend $125, "00 in adver
tising the fraudulent substance the

Al. Seiks. a arrlage finisher at the
Sechler works n Moline and residing
in this city, met with a painful acci

in polishing in iron when a belt
broke, a portion of it striking him on
the left side, raising, cutting and
contusing the tlesh on the head,
neck, shoulder and arm. His inju

though you do spe id an extra dollar or two

Sandwiches for b ill suppers can be made
of thin scallops of roast fowl, game or any
kind of cooked fish, or of tunny, lobster or
the tails of pickled brawns or crayfish,
masked by white mayonnaise sauce and
aspic jelly, while ordinary sandwiches,
according to Frai catelli, should be cut

thin slices of leef, v eal, ham or bacon, sea

Chickens SImuM tiavo IVater.
Chickens should have plenty of milk or
water always at hand, for if their food is
dry and they are deprived of liquids for any
length of time they will be likely to injure
themselves by driiiking too much. Put
the water or milk for them into some re
ceptacle that will not cause them to wet
their feathers, espet ially in winter. A sau
cer containing an inverted flowerpot is a
simple arrangement, if drinking fountains
which admit only t be bills are not used.
Senator Stat ford's Necktie.
Senator Stanford always wore a little
butterfly necktie o le of the kind that is
fastened on a short ei ided bow and fastens to
the collar button wioh a rubber loop. For
many years that was the only cravat in the
senator's possession. Ha parted with it
only when it was completely worn out and
his wife made him yet another. The por
trait by Meissonier has him wearing thia
tie. Philadelphia trsdaer.
A Hom Car Driver In New York.
On the front platform of a Broadway car
can be seen an interesting variety of life.
Hide down behind some old stager, for in
stance, who has been on the route for many
years. Get him to talk. I know one Broad
way driver by sight who is a charmingcon
versationist. He is a second edition of
the famous Mark Tapley of romance. No
sort of weather and no coitions of travel
can ruffle his temper or qui-U his delightful
Cow of dry humor. He appears to know
every driver and conductor on the liue. As
they meet he is hailed by them with asmile
and a rougb and cheery salutation of some
sort. Even the shaggy fellows who drive
the cross town lines call out to him or
wave a hand at him from their brakes when
too far away for word of month. His hon
est, round red face glows with good nature
which cannot le disturbed by the most ob
stinate truck driver that ever blocked the
track with wagon.
"Oh, yes," said he to me one day. "I
know 'em. They ain't half bad I used to
drive stage on this line long ago. Then
I've been driving car ever since. Xow I'm
taking lessons on a grip. (Come, tune 'er
up a little. Bill:) The road changes, but I'm
here. (Hello, old man! How's Sally?) Sal
ly's his girL See?"
The other man takes a half tnrn on his
brake, and with a broad grin sweeps by.
"Know 'em? Well, I should say? And
every inch of tbis road, you can bet! (All
right, now. Hurry up there or you won't
get no dinner.) He thinks he's driving in
Kansas City. That fellow's an old timer,
but he's been off the line a dozen times.
Been on a brake in every city in the coun
try. They always come back hei No
place like old New York. See?"
And thus he runs on chatting and chaf
fing and twisting down and letting go and
keeping a sharp lookout to the right and
left a sound mind in a sound body and a
great big heart throbbing under alb New
