ONLY THING HE COULD DO Foolish to Think That Man In Trench Would Allow Shell to Spoil Arduous Work. Wo extract tho following from a let ter written to his parents In Ireland by one of the Irish brigudo in France, Bays London Tit-Bits. About half n dozen of them were told off to dig a hole somewhat In advance of the trenches. They hnd got on nicely with their Job, when the Germans spotted them and begnn to try their artillery marksmanship on the diggers. For a time the shells went wide, but nt last one dropped right Into tho midst of The men. All but ono scrambled out llko rab bits. Tho "man who stayed behind" pnt his spade under fho shell and flung t,ho projectile out of tho hole after his comrades, who, In dlro alarm, qulpkly threw themselves flat on the ground nnd escaped Injury. Going back to tho hole, thoy saw their mato, a Londonderry giant, coolly lighting his pipe. Ono and all upbraided him for throwing tho shell out after them. "What would you have me do?" he asked, "luvo the shell In the hole, an' let It spoil our half-day's beautiful work 1" Explained. "Songs of the sen are always pop ular."

TRENCHES FOR DRAINS i 0NE BEST disinfectants Ditching Plows Will Prove of Ma terial Assistance. Apparatus for Digging Ditches for Tile Drainage Systems May Be Ob tained at Prices Ranging From $18 to $6,000. (t-rom tho United States Dcpartmont of Agricultures. Somo form of trenching machinery will prove n profitable Investment, ac cording to engineers In the United States department of agriculture, If tho landowner has more than 100 rods of tile drain to lay in noil that will re quire picking but which Is free from rock. Ditching plows that can bo pur chased for $18 to $20 will prove of material assistance in such work. If ns much as l.fiOO rods of tile drain nre Endless Chain Machine. to bo laid tho landowner will be jus tified In purchasing a horse-drawn plow at $250 to $300, provided the soil Is free from rock and large roots. The installation of 0,000 rods of drain tllo will Justify the purchase of n power- driven trenching machine for $1,500, provided tho machine can subsequent ly bo sold for one-half its original cost. The various types of trenching ma chines are divided, In Farmers' Hul letin COS, a new publication of tho department, Into four" classes: (1) IMows and scoops, (2) wheel excava tors, (3) endless-chain excavators, (4) scraper excavators. The plows and scoop3 range In price from $18 for n simple ditching plow to loosen tho dirt nnd make hand shoveling easier, to plows costing $300 and fitted with de vices for lifting out tho dirt and trim ming tho trenches. The other three classes aro usually elaborate machines costing $1,200 to $0,000, which may not be profitable Investments for tho uv ornge farmer who has only a small uniount of draining to do. However, where there Is hutch drainage to bo done it will bo well for tho landowner 'to Investigate the advisability of pur chasing some trencher which bus a de tachable tractor. When not needed for trenching, the tractor may bo easily separated from the digging apparatus and used In all the ways In which n farm tractor In ordinarily employed. Another method of securing the serv ices of a power machine Is for several landowners to combine in purchasing dnd using It. Throe things nre required of n good trenching machine, namely: (1) It must operate efficiently through vari ous kinds of soil ; (2) it must bo cap able of cutting true to grade; (3) It must work for long periods without breaking or otherwise getting out of order. Probably none of the plows or icoopn cuts accurately to grade, and fcomo bund work Is necessary to make the trench smooth for laying the tile properly. However, their low cost mnkes It profitable to employ tbem on work that would not Justify tho use of more expensive machinery. . Tho cost of trenching by machinery must include, besides the expense for operation and repairs, Interest on the Investment and proper .charges for de preciation of tho machine. The Inter est and depreciation charges nro con tinuous ; whether tho machine Is work ing or Idle. The real difference In cost bf trenching by machinery and by Whitewash Is Recommended as First Step for Healthfulness Thor oughness Is Important Whitewash Is ono of the best dlsln fectahts for damp, dark places. Tho best way to apply whitewash Is, first, to have It perfectly free from lumps, and then use n spray pump. Thoroughness Is Important in all kinds of disinfecting work. It 1b of no use to disinfect the walls of a burn unless you also disinfect the floors nnd mntigcrs. One good point about whitewash Is that Its color tells you when you hnvo thoroughly covered n surface. Some of the coal-tar disinfectants not only destroy germs but also kill lice, fleas, parasites and, In addition, heal cuts and wounds. Tho best ways to disinfect yards, such as after a hog-cholera epidemic, are: First rake up all the trash and burn It. Then cover tho yard three Inches deep with straw and burn that. If you are not able to secure straw, sprinkling the ground with llmo Is n second choice. To disinfect posts and fences, whitewash or paint them. Disease germs shorten tho average span of life by about two years. About DO per cent of the common diseases nro Infectious, or "catching." Disin fection after disease Is tho first step for healthfulness, both for persons and llvo stock. Farm and Fireside.

PREVENT SOURING OF CREAM Acid Developed Through Process Is Injurious to Infants Keep Dirt and Bacteria Out. Extra precautions should now bo taken, on nccount of tho warm weath er, to keep milk and cream sweet. The acid developed through souring Is very Injurious to Infants, and whllo it may not be so to older persons, It Is very distasteful to tbem. Bacteria will not sour milk unless permitted to grow In It, thercforo every precaution ary, measure should bo taken to pre vent them from doing so, by cooling the milk as soon as It is produced and keeping It cool from then until it is delivered. Housewives and dairymen should remember that cleanliness nnd low temperature (50 degrees F.) will prevent loss from this source. As dlrl; Is filled with bacteria, both dirt and bacteria should bo kept out of the milk by using small-top mllk-palls and by thoroughly washing and nlrlng all dairy utensils.

Give the dairy cows the usual feed ing of hay and grain night and morn ing until tho pastures aro luxuriant. The millets make good cntch crop',, but the seed should not be allowed to get too ripe If the hay is to be fed to horses or colts.
