Delhi, India, Dec. 12. Amid scenes of splendor never before equalled even In India, Uie country of marvel ous pageants, nor In any other land la modem times, George and Mary, The Great Durbar Procession. king and queen of Great Britain, wero recognized today as omperor and em press of India. Up to their thrones marched tho proudest chiefs of Hin dustan and there did homage. Tho ceremony was without precodont, for never beforo has a British emperor ot India como to Delhi, the ancient eeat of tho kings of India, to assume his title Tho Durbar, for which elab orate preparations had. been un der way for months, took place In a great camp to tho north ot the city, some five miles square. The temjio r&ry population of this camp Is about a quartor ot a million, and It is fur nished with all tho conveniences of modern life, including 31 post offices, ten telegraph offlcos and even elec tric light, railways, motor cars and taxi-cabs. Thero the people gathered Native Princes on for the durbar have been amusing themselves for several day with polo, hockey and military tournaments and other festivities. Display of Jewels Is Wonderful. The durbar proper took place in an immense semi-circular amphitho ater on the historic ridgo whoro a tew Englishmen onco made & herolo stand against the revolting natives. In tho center of tho soml-clrclo was a throne of gold and silver surmount ed by a copper domo. Taking his seat on this, George received tho hom age of tho rulers o tho "dim mil lions" of his subjects, about 150 rul ing princes of Hindustan. These dusky potentates tho magnificent Jewels for which they have long, boea famous, Indeed such a display of precious stones never be fore was seen la'jaodern times. Tho raJahB, aftor making tholr obeles ances, grouped themselves about the throne, where also stood the govern Org ot the Asiatic colonies of the crown, other distinguished govern ment officials and Invited guests, Queen Wears the Kehlnwr. The king was crowned ktng-empep or at Westminster, so he took his throne already wearing a crown that Had been made especially for this oc casion, garbed In the royal robes oi state, wearing the state Jewels and carrying the scepter. By his Bide sat Queen Mary, oa her brow the crown that was made for her coronation and in the front of which biased the great Kbhlnoor, the Indian diamond sup posed to bring good fortune if worn by a woman. Her Jewels were eves more magnificent than those she wore at the coronation at Westminster, among her new ornaments being I beautiful lotus flower of diamonds. She was garbed in the white and gold embroidered robo worn nt the coronation. Closo beside the imperial thronea when tho twonty-four Btato trumpet ers with their silver trumpets herald ed tho durbar were, of courso Lord Hardingo, viceroy of India, and Lady Hardlngo. Most spectacular was the grand re view of troops, about 90,000 in num ber. Most of these were native troops, and they were garbed In the most gorgeouB uniforms in tho world! Tho rajahs and other native prin ces present brought their own ele phants, tho size of the animal depend ing on tho rank of Its owner, and the hugo 'brutes with their magnificent howdahs and othor trappings added Black Chargers. ' much to tho oriental splendor of the scene, Presents for Indian Subjects. The king and queen brought from England a vast number of presents for tholr Indian subjects, including a thousand plum puddings made la the Buckingham palace kitchens, and a great number ot rich cakes, York hama and Stilton cheeses.

Cows afflictod with tho disease of abortion convoy this disease to their offspring. Tho more with the fall colt should bo kept moat of tho tlmo in a roomy, warm box stall. Concrcto vats in tho milk houses aro reasonably cheap, eternally durablo and highly sanitary. Early autumn is a very trying tlmo on the owes on the account of the shortage of pasture. If tho farm as a wholo doesn't pay, make some part of it n garden spot; for gardens always pay. Novor breed a norvous, high-strung sow that Is always ready to Jump and xun at the drop of tho hat Besides tho white grub, thero aro sovcral other pestB which trouble tho roots ot strawberry plants. All breeds of hogs look good when taken care of, all of thorn will yield' good money if rightly handled. Owing to tho scarcity of hay and the high price of all kinds' ot grain, farm ers having plenty of straw aro fortu nate. (ft Drafts undor tho floors should be prevented by placing boards over the openings and then banking with straw or chaff. Tho germinating power of the raid dlo kernols of an car of corn is much stronger than that of the tip and butt kernels. No matter whether tho corn .is bought ot saved from your own farm It should be stored in a dry, woll ventilated place, A good, ration for rams during tho breeding season Is oats, bran and Kin-seed-mpal, with such foddors as rapo, the yotchea and alfalfa. Prepare the soil for your bedding plants which are to bo planted next spring. You cannot tako too much pains in preparing tho soil, No man that is lnexporlcnccd should undortako tho business of raising hogs unless ho expects to make a study of it, and to proilt by his mistakes. Botter run a dairy without a flog than havo ono that is irritable to the cows. Many kicking cows nro caused by tho dogs nipping nt tholr heolB. Sheep that aro .well kept and fed dur ing tho fall season so that they enter tho winter quarters in thrifty and vig orous condition will keep eaBily over winter. If you aro a beginner with Bhoop go slow Until you havo mastered the In dustry, As in puultryiag or any othor llko business, experlenco Is tho safe, sure teacher, Ono of tho most general methods adopted for cooling milk Is to placo the canB in a vat containing water which reaches a point slightly abovo surface of milk. This year's sprouts may bo pullod from the peach trees with tho hands If It 1b dono this fall, when it should bo, which will" savo considerable work next spring. Cleanliness in handling, In strain ing, and in separating tho milk Is a thing that cannot bo too religiously adhered to, for prevention Is tho koy word to quality in all dairy work. Kill the vicious hog. Frost bitten grass has no value. Tho hog Is not naturally a dirty animal. By all mean, give the hogs jhto wator to drink. Sawdust can be used la the absesee of other materials. The best way to handle manure hi to' spread it at once. Mares bred la November drop their colts the following October. The mare with the fall eol( mast have a good milk-making ration. Cows giving 8,000 to 9,000 poaada of mlik in a year are worth keeping,. Look out for ticks. Ticks make poor sheep, poor lambs and spoil the fleece. Mnko two sowings of peas of an early wrinkled variety for a late crop. Many lambs aro far from being as good Individuals as cither ot their parents. ' Cool the cream after Jt has been soparatod and feed tho milk while It la warm. Bushes nnd small troos, too large for the plow to root out, should bo cut with tho nx. Wheat bran has JuBt tho olomonts In It that Bhoop and lambs ncod to mnko good growth. Clovor and grass seed will nearly nlwayB do best when thoy can be started to early growth. Don't expect tho flock to drink rrom n dirty trough. Thoy won't do It, and will suffer In consequence. Tho flooco of the ram should be dense, evon In quality, and of a strong, clear white fiber throughout. Largo, fat, plump poultry of all va rlotioB 1b nlwaya in good demand and brings moro than scrawny Block. It is a good sign that tho pure-bred shoop nro Increasing rapidly and are, theroforo, Improving all of the flocks. By IntolllKOnt breeding, nolncllnn. feeding and care, most dairy herds can do Drought up to doublo their produc tion. In buying a ram got a young one. He can be disposed ot moro advan tageously when ono is 'through with him. Tho vicious hog that Is forever breaking out and causing trouble for ono's neighbors cannot bo killed too quickly. Dried boot pulp, wheat bran, dried distlllors' grains and alfalfa moal may bo had at first hands froo from any adulteration. While growing coltB Bhould bo al lowed to run out as long as tho weather will pormlt thorn to be ex posed to tho Btorm. Goats will brood at six months ot ago, but this early breeding destroys vitality. Eighteen months is about tho right age for breeding. Salt Is good for chickens In very Bmall quantities, rather loss If anything than wu would use for our own food, yet brine is often poisonous. No man that Is inexperienced should undcrtako tho business ot raising hogs unless ho expocts to make a study ot it and to profit by his mistakes. Tho good dairy cow has a capacity for a tromcndouB amount of feed and this feed must bo furnished her if sho is going to yield tho best returns. Tho futuro of tho mutton crop de pends upon the attention givon tho young lambs, nnd the dogrco to which they nro kopt growing from tho start. Fruit troos should nevor bo planted on tho lnwn, as, unless tho troos are given careful culture throughout tho growing season, thoy will not make healthy growth. At this season, with tho coming of Into faU rains, provldo shelter for tho sheep. Sheop will onduro cold weather without injury, but thoy must be kept dry. Tho good cow Ta tho ono having per slstcnt milking qualities, that is, ono that will, on fairly good feed and care, give n regular quantity of milk for 10 to 11 months In tho year. About tho proper mixture of ashes nnd ealt for tho lot Ib four quarto of salt to a bushel of ashes. Keep it in a trough or self-feeder, so It will not .bo traraplod Into tho ground. The more a cow Is compelled to tramp over pasture for feed, tho less milk in proportion will sho give, Moral: Have smaller but better pas tures bluegrass and clover "knee deep." Why not act out those trees for fence posts this fall when you aren't very buny? Try a block of somo for-, est trees on some land that you can spare. The yellow locust ta mora handy than the catnip.
