A Missouri eoi "fspoudciit nsks if it will injure the milking qualities of rows to let their calvcs mil with t^em until weaning time, says The Breeder's Gazette. No more certain means eouM be adopted to lessen the persistency of flow in a cow. The milk tlow is na ture's provision for the sustenance of the young. When the necessity no longer exists In nature for the exercise of that fuuctiou, it ceases its activity— that is to say. as the calf approaches the age when it becomes fitted to live on other foods nature governs herself accordingly and gradually reduces the milk secretion and linally abandons it altogether. By the artificial stimula tion of regular, constant hand milking we induce a prolongation of the secre tion until finally cows are "educated" to milk right through the piece from one calf to another, although most dairymen prefer to give their cows from four to six weeks' respite from milking before parturition. Nature's method is to supply milk enough mere ly to grow tlie calf until it is able to live on other foods. Taking advantage of this lactation, man has stimulated It into a persistent rather than a lim ited function. But on the slightest re laxation of man's effort to induce a persistent flow of milk there is a tend ency to relapse to the natural condi tion of a comparatively short flow. The supply at first is usually too abun dant for the calf, and nature at once sets to work to remedy it. The surplus amount of milk left in the udder is notification to the mammary glands that they are overexerting themselves, and they Jit once, imperceptibly per haps, but none the less surely, begin to diminish their secretory activity. It is here that the art of mau triumphs over nature. By the removal by hand of the last drop of milk in the udder the glands are stimulated to perform their function and "till up the jug." Moreover, manipulation of the udder in the act of milking induces a greater flow of blood to the glands aud thus in creases the milk supply.

[Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.) Tt was the chiropodist from the floor aDovo the major's office, and he pas.-^d the door two or three times before knocking, as if to get up his courage. "Come in!" called the major in a bland and cheery voice. "Come right in! Hy George, but what a coincidence —what a coincidence! Not a minute ago I sat down to write you a note asking you to step down here. There is surely such a thing as mental teleg raphy." "l'ou have owed me $1 for the lasfc four months," stilliy replied the cliirop* odist as he lagged out a bill. "Just so—exactly—lust so!" smiled the major as he rubbed his hands to gether. "Yes, sir, about four montiui "r WANT THAT DOLLAR!" ago you removed two corns from my right foot. The circumstance is per fectly fresh in my memory." "And you said you'd pay me next day." "1 presume I did. Yes, I know I did, and I humbly apologize that it slipped toy mind. My dear man, permit me to pay you $2- $3, $4, $5. I have a check here for $250. You may hand me $243 balance, and I shall be perfectly satis lied." "I haven't got no $245." replied the man. "and 1 only want what is due toe. I'll go to the bank with you." "Don't! Don't do it! I'd never for give myself for putting you to that I trouble. Yes I was about to write you a note. It was surely a curious thing— your coming down as you did. Doctor, do you know where I stood financially four months ago?" "Mighty hard up. 1 guess," was the sullen reply. "You've hit It. Yes, sir, I was so hard up that I didn't own the shoes to my feet. It was the hardest kind of work for me to raise a dollar. The cold, cruci world sneered at me and called me a dead beat, but there were a few exceptions. You were one. In my darkest hour you had confidence in me. When I wanted those corns re moved. you didn't demand payment in advance." "1 wish I had!" I "No, sir. You trusted in my word, 1 The proper treatment of cows design ed for the dairy involves a removal of the newborn calf within a period of three days at the outside. Practice on this point varies somewhat with dairy men. The calf is occasionally removed before it sucks, sometimes after otic, two or three days aiul sometimes— when it is desired to start the calf par ticularly well-tlie new arrival is al lowed to help himself for a couple of weeks or more. In the latter case trou ble. or. at least, annoyance, from the cow may be expected, as her maternal instinct becomes fully aroused and es tablished. and she bawls and frets for her offspring. On the other hand, this desire to "do" the youngster well some times overreaches the mark, as a cou ple of weeks' tugging at the maternal founts makes It difficult to teach him to drink, and he does not thrive so well as if hand fed from the start. and you didn't seek to humiliate me, aud you aroused my deepest gratitude. I haw offered to pay you five for one, but I shall not slop there. It shall be 5.UU0 and more for one. Can you sell out your business or give it away to day or tomorrow?" "Are you going to pay me the dol lar?" sternly demanded the chiropodist. "If you can't sell out, give it away, lock it up, throw it out of the window!" continued the major as he walked about the room. "My dear man. listen to me.

"Ami it was my genius and my finan ciering which brought It about," said the major as he rubbed his hands and patted the chiropodist on the shoul der.

When I was at the orphan asylum—and all of my earliest recollections are of that place—I used occasionally to see among the visitors who thronged the hos pital 011 guest days a tall, beautiful woman with a pale face nnd dark, unrespon sive eyes. The lady seldom spoke to me, and when she did it was in a cold voice, but from the time she entered the room her eyes were fixed upon me. A short time after this I was adopted by a widow, whose two sons had map ried aud gone to far distant parts of the world. I had been two weeks with niy adopted mother when I heard the voice of the tall, pale lady in the parlor. I knew it at once. "We have been neighbors for a long time, Mrs. Thorneyeroft," I heard hit saying. "I have come to make amends for my tmneighborliuess." There did not seem to be anything in common between these two, and the con versation often dropped, yet the visitor staid on and on. I got weary sitting on the stairs—I was waiting to go for a walk with my adopted mother—and so I walked boldly down stairs and into the parlor. The moment my eyes met those of the tall, pale lady I knew she was going to pretend that she had never seen uie before. So I looked at her as straugely as she did at me. "Your daughter, Mrs. Thorneyeroft?" asked the lady. "My daughter," said my adopted mother and said no more. "What is your name, dear child?" the lady questioned me. Her tone had nev er before been so tender in spaking to me. 1 suppose she pitied me because she thought my name had been changed. "It is the same as it always was," said I. "It is Madeleine." I saw the lady turn pink at this. "What a strange answer!" she said. "But it is a beautiful name. Naturally y-ur name is the same as it always was." "Naturally," said my adopted mother. "You may run out and play, Made li ine." 1 played about the doorstep till the tall lady came out, aud then I said, going up and taking hold of her hand: "If you do not live far away, I will go with you and see what your house is like." "Thank you," said she smilingly and led me on. We turned a corner and stopped before a tall, dark stone house, with enrtatas like frostwork at the windows. "Will you come in?" she asked. "Not today. My mother will be waiting for me. But I will come tomorrow, if you like, aud bring my doll. I cau come after my lessons." But that evening when my adopted mother held me on her lap she said to me: "Madelaine, you are never to go to see the lady who oalled here today, even though she asks you." But we met sometimes. Once iu a terrible storm of wind and rain, when I was running home, she called me into her carriage. "You are all dripping," she cried, hanging over me. "Oh, me! Oh, me! Yott will catch cold! Give me your hands aud let me warm them." And she chafed my hands and even held them to her cheek. She was at my coming out. party, years after, and sent me a great armful of lilies, and after that I met her quite often at different places—teas or dinners or the opera. Sometimes, when we met in the dressing room, she would give a little .touch to my hair or tie my ribbons afresh or say whether or not she thought a certain color becoming to me. On a certain day every year I received a gift from an unknown donor, and I concluded after much thought that this day was the anniversary of my birth. Of the giver of the gifts I had 110 doubt. My adopted mother had not the heart to forbid me to keep and use the things 1 received in this manner, though I could see she was not well pleased that I should be the recipient of them. I was quite 20 years old when one day as I walked in the park a woman came up to me, begging that I would come with her quickly. She said that her mistress desired above all things to see me. I knew the woman to be the maid of that lifelong, mysterious friend whose influence had always surrounded me, though we had n«*ver lived under the same roof nor enjoyed intercourse together. "I am forbidden to go to her house," I said, rememtiering the old forbiddance. "But she is dying." A swift fear winged my feet. I ran as fast as I could to the dark house with tlie frostlike curtains. Up the stairs I sped, past the servant who opened the door for me. on to the front chamber. The nurse made way for me. There were two men in the room, but I brushed past them. She raised herself from her pillows with a tremendous effort. "Madam, madam," called the physician, "if you are so reckless you will end your life at once." She caught me iu her arms, and we wept together. "I thought I was never going to be kissed by you," I sobbed. did you wait so long?" "Do you love me, little Madelaine?" she whispered. I kissed her on the eyes and on the hair. "Dearest, dearest!" I answered. She relaxed in my arms. "My dear young lady," said the physician gently, "she is dead.** I laid her on her pillow and then stood and looked at her. "If she had only sent for me before," 1 said over and over, with dry Hps. "You ask 110 questions," said the man who stood at the foot of the bed. I lifted my burning eyes and looked at him. He was a masterful man. "I am not curious," I said coldly, and I kissed my pale lady long on the Hps and went away.—Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. In a Burning Tnnnel. "It isfl't niuoil of a story," said the white haired old veteran engineer, "but If you want to hoar it I'll toll you. It was in the summer of 1870. I was running iin 'extra' juissi-njier onsinc 011 on»i of the mountain divisions of the U. P., and, a younj fiiKttit'cr then, I had a rathor unenviable rword as a wild and reckless run ner. "At that tinn* thp government was making lots of changes among the army posts on the frontier, and almost every week we had one or more of what we railed 'coverunient specials.' moving the soldiers and their families nnd belong ings from one post to anoiher. One morning I was 'called' to po out on one of these runs, and a« I coupled my engine to the train the conductor handed me a message from the superintendent telling e.s to rush that train through with all possible speed. It just suited me exactly. I had a light train—four baggage ears, throe coaches and a •sleeper' -and I knew I could 'make a record' for a fast run, something 1 had been waiting for for a long time. "In the first hour I made 50 miles, and then—well, I never had a chance to better it. We received an order to meet a passenger train and pass a freight go ing in the same direction as ourselves at the next station. "There were two side tracks there, and the freight train occupied one of them, and I pulled in 011 the other. The station was right at the top of a very heavy grade, and the track down this hill was very crooked. The passenger train came a little late, and in my hurry to get out I did not give the brakeman time to open the switch, aud I got the front truck of my engine off the track. It did no damage to the engine, hut it gave the fire that left me as I am now a good chance to get a-going, "At Inst we got started, and as I looked back from my cab at the first curvo I saw the freight train on the main track ready to follow us down the hill. My train was running at full 50 miles an hour as I turned the last long curve at the foot of the grade, and there in plain view was the mouth of Winnemucca tunnel tliokfd frum th? rail to the roof with a mass of roaring flames. It was nearly a quarter of a mile away, and I knew I could stop my train, but I looked back across the curve and could see, hardly 1,000 feet behind me, that heavy freight train rushing along almost as fait as I was running. It was before the time of airbrakes on iiciuht trains, and I realized in less than a second that no power then in use could stop that train in time to save the lives of the hundreds o? sol diers anil th-'ir wives and little ones in the cars behind me. The very force of the collision would drive my train into the tunnel, where, without power to move, thev would surely pe.'ish. '»l thought quick then. My fireman had jumped the minute he saw the fire, and I was alone 011 the engine. 1 knew the timbers in the tunnel were very henry, and my only chance was Hint the lire had not burned through them -so that they lnid dropped to the rail. I threw coal into the fin-box until we reach ed the or the tunnel, and then I dropped the cab curtains, shut the win dows aud waited. "I was risht in my iruess. None of the timbers was down, but one big one, burned out at the top! was started by the jar of the train and fell just in rime to catch the corner of the cab. The speed of the train threw the log lengthwise with the track, but it took the engine cab with it. I had been all right until this happened, but theft in the intense heat I commenced to roast. I pulled out the throttle as far as it would go and then crawled back into the tender and lay down beside the iron water space and prayed for death. I ju.-it remember seeing the blue sky as we shot out of the mouth of that living hell, and that was the last I knew for over a week. I was in the hospital for over a year, aud as no one (!s was hurt except my fireman?, and he was at work again in about a month, I have nothing to regret. When I could get out and get around, the general man ager told nip 1 should draw engineer's pay as long as I lived, work or not. as I pleaded. I try to do what I can but, as you see, it's not much. But I always set my p:«y lust the same."
