Its loveliness is not born to wnste Its flesh-pink blush unseen, but quite the contrary. Camisoles and chemise, combinations nnd slips nre nil visible through sheer blouses that 'depend upon them for added charm. The blouse often serves merely "to veil the rose's bloom ;" tho camisole or other underbodlce providing tho most interesting contribution -to the cos tume.

An envelop chemise and a combina tion, both of American design nnd manufacture, nre shown in the picture above. Flesh pink crepe do chlno makes the practical chemise shown at the left, trimmed with Insertion and edging of the famlllnr vol lace that women love. A small yoke of Irish lace Is set In nt the front. Pink satin straps with bows suspend tho chemise from tho shoulders and the same rib bon makes a dignified bow with hang ing loops and ends to embellish the front, This garment Is delightfully cool for warm weather when the light est union suit proves burdensome. A short undervest nnd corset are worn under It. Just because they are so pretty and for no other reason, tho pink silk gar ters, with wide lace frills, flaunt their chnrm in company with this sensible chemise.

( "Neigh, neigh, neigh," said tho horse who was out In tho pasture. "I liave a story to tell," said tho cow. ' "We have stories to tell," said the othor cows. "And I have n story to tell," said the horse. "Goodness," said tho cow, as she lazily chewed her cud, making her mouth go the wholo time. "Good ness," she repeated, "how many crea tures hnvo stories to toll. I thought I would ln the only one." "We thought so, too," said tho othor cows together, and the horse snld, "That was exactly what I thought." "I believe my story Is different from all tho other stories," said tho cow. "Just what wo think about our stories," said the other cows. "And Just whnt I thought about my story." snld the horse, neighing and waving bis tall. "Well, what will wo do about It?" asked the cow. "We'll all have' to tell our stories In some way or other," said tho cows. "Well," said tho cow, "I'd like to tell mine last, so tho best will be kept until the last. That's always, a good way to do, keep tho best until the last." "It all depends on what we consider the best." said tho other cows. "Well, tako a chance on mine being the best," said tho cow. "What will you do nbout mine, nnd when will I tell It?" nsked the horse. "Before I tell mine," said the cow. "Then you think mine will bo next to yours, or next to tho best?" asked tho horse. "I have an idea It will lie," said the cow. "Now, cows haven't many Ideas The Poor City Man Was All Tired Out. and when n cow has an idea it is worth noticing for usually we're too lazy to have such things. We're too busy chewing, cutlng, lying down, resting, wandering through the pasture." "I never before heard of any one calling It being busy to lie down," said the horse. "Then you have heard It for the first time," said the cow, smiling a very broad smile. "Yes," laughed the horse, neighing, and snylng after a moment, "Well, let's begin tho stories." "The cows, all except myself, will tell the stories first of all," snld the cow. Sn tho horse and the cow listened while all the other cows In turn told their stories. They told of special tilings they had had to eat. Some of them told of milking cans which hud upet. Some of them told of the way they had waved their tails around when they were being milked nnd of how mad It bad nuido their masters Some of them told of long, long walks' people had taken to find them, for they had wandered so far off. And one cow told a Joke which made all th'- others laugh hard. "A man from tho city," snld the cow, "said ho would like to go with (lie farmer's boy to bring In the cows. Well, he walked and he walked, nnd wr had wandered nnd wandered. "The farmer's boy thought nothing of it at nil, but the city man snld he had never taken such n walk nnd when we were found at last and told to go buck to the barn "for the milking i ho poor city man was all tired out. "But what do you suppose ho asked the farmer's boy?" All the cows shook their heads. "He nsked him when they would have to do the same thing again, and bow often they had to do It I And he was so surprised when he heard thnt we wore' milked twice u day and had to bo brought homo twice, tool" They all laughed hard at this, and then the horse told of how ho had been taken In a motor nnd brought to the mnster that way. And tho cow said, "Just what I wns going to tell you. I wns brought here In a grent big motor wagon, nnd I think it Is pretty much of an honor for n cow to have a motor ride.

It Is impossible, by merely looking nt n cow, to tell whether or not she hns tuberculosis. Nor can tho pros enco of the disease be detected by physical examination going not much further than a survey. Tho most re liable method for definitely determin ing whether tuberculosis exists tho only method recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture Is the tuberculin tost applied by n trained operutor. Tuberculin is the most nccurato diagnostic ngency know to science, but It is safe only in the hands of n trained nnd skilled operator who Is acquainted with its action and limi tations. Can Not Trust Eyes Alone. Many fine herds of cnttlo which were a delight to look upon and which seemed to be healthy on superficial examination, hnvo been found to bo extensively nffectcd with tuberculosis. They reacted to tho tuberculin test! and subsequent slnughter of the nnl ninls proved thnt the test had not gono wrong. Their bodies were found to contnin extensive lesfons of tubercu losls, nnd these healthy appearing ani mals, If they had been allowed to live, would hnvo continued to spread tho disease to other cattle and swlno and HORSES WEAR GUARDS AGAINST NOSE FLIES Insects Prevented From Laying Eggs on Animals' Lips. Effective Control Results From Golna Over Forelegs and Throat and Lower Jaw With Rag and Carbolic Acid. fPrepared by tho United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Tho horses are wearing nose guards these days In the Northwest. It Isn't thnt somebody hns developed cavalry football, neither Is It thnt northwestern horses nro given to the fault of stumbling and mashing their noses. It Is to prevent the laying of eggs on the horses' lips by the worst, probnbly, of the three Ameri can species of bot fly the nose fly of horses. This fly is confined to tho north central and north Itocky Moun tain states. Its egg-laying habits dif fer from thoso of tho other bot flies, making It more dlfllcult to control. The common bot fly lnys Its eggs mostly on tho forelegs of horses. Tho second most common one, known ns tho throat bot fly, lays Its eggs mostly on tho throat nnd, lower Jaw, Effective control results from going over theso surfnees every seven days with a rag dampened In n 2 per cent carbolic acid mixture. Hut tho nose fly luys Its eggs whero they cannot bo got nt by this method on the short hairs of the lips just at the moisture line. Tho United Stntcs department of agriculture recommends two types of nose gunrd or, more properly speak ing, Hp guard. One Is a wide piece of leather attached to the brldo or halter and covering the Hps. The other Is a somewhat complicated box arrange ment that permits grazing. But com plete effectiveness Is not claimed for theso measures. The extension work ers of the department of agriculture insist on administering carbon bisul phide "high life" to the horses in Oc tober nnd November, horse owners, the county agent, and n dependable veter inarian working together. The carbon bisulphide, in three 3-dram capsules an hour apart. Is given by means of a "balling gun." If the cnpsule breaks Was Proved to Have Tuberculosis.

Under recent legislation tho federal government and tho stato governments pay portions of the valuo of cattlo slaughtered after they have been fomld infocted'wlth tuberculosis. Tho success of tho movement for eradicating tuberculosis rests upon tho livestock owners of tho country to n greater degree than on any othet force, according to ofllclnls of tho de partment. Whenever tho livestock owners "get behind" tho work success Is bound to follow. nnd tho carbon bisulphide gets into tho lungs of the horse, denth results.

' (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture) At tho conferenco of "swlno exten sion workers of United States de partment of agriculture, held recently In Washington, the question of wean ing pigs arose. The discussion brought out the fact that In somo parts of tho country furmers followed tho prnctlco of weaning their pigs nt most nil ages from flvo weeks np. Tho conclusions reached were that for best results pigs should bo allowed to nurse tho sow for nt least ten weeks where It Is possible to do so. It was decided that It would bo still better to allow tho pigs to wean themselves. A good suckling sow properly fed should be In n good flow of milk up to tho tlmo tho pigs nro nt least ten weeks of age. Without question the mother's milk is the best feed possible to ob tain for young pigs. Consequently hog growers should tnko advantage of this nntural feed to tho greatest ex tent possible. Live Stock Harts Pigs must suckle sows that yield plenty of rich milk. , The Ill-fitting horse collar Is tho cause of serious neck and shoulder ills. Pigs, as well as sows, need or should hnvo the range of some good forago crop. Furm horses should have their shoes removed and their feet dressed every six weeks. Many farmers do not realise tho extreme unklndness of keepingthirsty horses at work hi the field. Tho cnttlo fever tick will bo perma ncntly driven from American soil within the next few years.
