Star Pointer Kent .lo Patchm. Lower
ing Karinar Kerord to 2:01.
Indianapolis, (Sept. is. The
world's racing record was broken by
Rtar Pointer at the srkate Fair
Grounds track this eveninsr when
he paced the mile against Joe Patch
en in 2:01, the race being: the closing
heat between the world wonders
that was paced over a muddy track
The track was in an ideal condi
tion and the day was beautiful, but
only 2,000 were on hand to cheer the
two wonders. As they left the wire
Patchen forged ahead a half length
and kept the lead until the first
quarter was made, :29V Patchen
continued to hold the front till the
half was reached and passed, mak
ing the half mile in one minute flat.
It was then that Star Pointer came
up and gradually began to crawl
away. Before the third quarter was
reached he was two lengths in ad
vance of Patchen and it was clear
that the race was won. The third
quarter was reached in 1 :30 flat.
Pointer quickened his pace by a
word from his driver and gaining a
length on the home stretch, passed
under the wire three lengths ahead
in the fastest time ever made in a
I.lve Stork nml Ditl-y.

it is a wonder tliey are not rant-d

Drsappointinent is often trac-a'ile
to the fact that heavy sires are per
mitted with young heifers or small
cows, and unrestricted service often
allowed. There should be some
harmony in the parents of any ani
mal. A good cow is one whi?h will give
five or six thousand pounds of milk
a year, capable of yielding 2"0 or ,500
pounds of buffer if desired. If she
ha no had habits, has a good con
stitution, and such good blood that
we are warranted in using her for a
mother for future cows, is about all
one can reasonable expect.
It is not always safe to separate
the ewes and lambs suddenly,
especially in the warm weather,
when any unusual condition in the
ewe may lead to unexpected trouble.
The rule must be a close oversight
of the flock, one by one, and the
drafting otT of those ewes who-e
lambs may be safely separated from
Home winter dairying will enable
you to feed all farm crops to advant
age, to make butter with profit, and
to accumulate more manure fo- en
riching the fields than can b done
when the stock runs out. In the
summer soiling will enable you to
maintain the land better than it can
be done by pasturing, but the ma
jority of farmers are not yet ready

I'nited States Department of Agri
culture recently issued there were

Although the farmer may not be
situated so that it will pay him to
grow fruit for commercial purposes,
he should raise enough for ail the
requirements of his table. No class
of food is healthier than fresh, well
ripened, fruit and nothing adds so
much to the luxury of the table. In
deed there are often times when one
or more of the family, from sickness
or from being; nearly "run down,"
finds no other food at all palatable.
All the small fruits, strawberries,
raspberries, blackberries, grapes,
etc., shonld find a place cn the farm.
In raising fruit for home it is not so
important to have varieties that are
prolific as to have the finest quali
ties. The orchard, too, should have
every variety that soil and climate
permit. Thus he secures good liv
ing and good health. Nearly every
part of the year will have its fresh
fruit, the apple, of course, reaching
over the longest season, and the
canning and preserving done by the
farmer's wife make a most accept
able addition to the table comforts
during the oil seasons. Rural
Twenty-nln Chicks From Fifteen Errs.
A most wonderful phenomenon
has recently occurred at Boston,
Lincolnshire. A poultry keeper
placed a hen on fifteen double
yolked eggs, and twenty-nine chicks
were the result. It is said that the
hen's bewilderment at this extra
ordinary brood from such an ordi
nary number of eggs was very pro
nounced. The chickens, which are
Black Minorcas. are now about three
wetks old, healthy and peckish, and
have been viewed by scores of in
credible curiosity hunters. Loudon
Cockerels kept until November
bring no more money than if sold
for broilers in midsummer, but they
keep on eating all the same.
Poultry of all kinds is easily
digested, and has less tendency to
create heat than fat pork, and the
farmer who has care for the health
of his family will jet out of the old
(.'old weather will check the
development of chicks hatched in
June or later, and it will not pay to
keep theni over. Market early, and

When the knack of raising poultry
is mastered and an understanding

flocks, the work becomes easy and
routine, arid a hu-iin ss is established

Make the cellar frost-proof by all
means, but have it so that light can
enter at all times, and arrange so
that yoa can air it thoroughly every

warm enough to permit.
Let no farmer buy staples which
he can raise himself, paying another
the profit he should have. He can
live almost wholly within himself if
he will, and live upon that which is
fresh and better.
In slipshod farming there is no
charm at all; none in weedy fields
or untidy fences, fence corners or
barns, or with the buildings in a
general state of disorder.
It does not need proving that land
can not be over cropped if supplied
with plant food equivalent to that
removed by the crop, and if the
robber weeds are kept down.
