Valuable Bird to Have on Farm of Average Sis. the Ono of ttie main reasons why the guinea fowl Is so eminently salted to farms Is that a free range is necessary in order to insure success. It Is almost useless attempting to rear the chickens or to maintain the adult stock in con finement. I know several cases In which such a practice has been tried, but I know of no instance In which it has proved a success, says a writer in the Fe.ithr. It, Is surprising how far the birds win wander during the day. I hare frequently seen them two and three miles away from home, but there Is little fear of luelr not returning at niglit. ns lurariably with the approach of eTenlff they return to the home stead. Guinea fowls are wonderful forajprs. an4 after the first few weeks they will oMain nearjy sufficient food to support themselves. During seven months cut cf the twelve the adult blrd.i require practically no feeding, as they are at!e to. find a plentiful supply of seeds, grabs' and Insects to keep them In a gotl condition, and it is only during the winter that they should be supplied w'th much artificial food, two small feeds a day proving ample. In ontler to succeed with guinea fowl?., it 13 necessary that the location shall b? suitable.- Upon heavy clay land tlioy Co not thrive well, the most suitable soil consisting of a medium loaru upon a gravel subsoil. Very sandy soil is not good, as it contains so Iittlo animal lifv without which suc cess can never be attained. When they are upon iry, well drained land very Iittlo tllfTicuIty is experienced in rearln.t tle chickens, and they only re in!re csrefrl mention during the first few weeiis of their lives. After this they are able to work for their own living and are no more trouble to their owners. In one reep:ct it has been found im possible to thoroughly , domesticate guinea fowls. They always steal their nests and cannot be persuaded to sit In specially constructed boxes. Even with a flock of about 200, which were as tame as ordinary fowls. It was Im possible to make the hens sit in the place provided. In a few cases, when it was accomplished, the percentage hatched was extremely poor, and those that did make their exit from the shell .were delicate and weakly. Ket an Impostor A proud young father telegraphed the news of bis new responsibility to his brother in this fashion: . "A hand some boy has come to my house and claims to be your nephew. We are doing our best to give him a proper welcome. The brother, however, failed to see the point and replied: I have not got a nephew. The young nan is an impostor.

IT) i v iTORIA ALWAYS Signature of The Squab Ttaft Wanted. . It Is true many are going into the squab business, whether they know much or little about the ups and downs of that kind of work, says American Poultry Advocate. By that many im agine the business will be overdone. Not much' fear along that line, from the fact that there is a constant and In creasing demand. And as the supply of game Is getting scarce and more scarce each year, there is going to be continued increase for futurity. Now the market calls loudly for a nice white meated squab, and the prices paid are remunerative enough for time and trou ble taken to procure this desired epi cure. Feather Eat faff. Feather eating Is caused by too close confinement and lack of exercise. This vice Is generally contracted during the winter, when fowls ere confined in close quarters. When they once get into this habit it is almost Impossible to break them of it. Put aloes on the feathers. This sometimes has the de sired effect. Fovrl Yard Lore. Keep after the lice and mites, as they multiply rapidly during the hot weath er. Keep your eyes open when about the roasting quarters and nesting places; also when about the brood coops. You need to persevere and stick to it in the poultry business the same as in any other. Choice eggs for hatching can usually be bought at this season of the year at reduced price, and it is not too late to buy eggs and hatch some good stock for use next season. Josh Billings is credited with saying that the "best time to set a hen Is when she is ready to set. One thing is certain, you cant force her to sit before she is ready nor afterward tither. But you can coax her and treat her kindly and greatly facilitate matters. Poultry responds very quick ly to kindness and as quickly resents harsh and cruel treatment. France's Fine Roads. Prance is one of the best pave! countries in the world. The first Na poleon Instituted and carried out n road system which gave France the roads which are lasting monuments to the Napoleonic foresight and shrewdness.

It -is not the kind of a house we build, but the way we build it. A house 10 by 12 will give us 120 square feet of floor space. Do not put twenty five light Brahma s In that house, and expect good results, for if you do you will be disappointed. However, you could put twenty Rocks or Wyandottes In that pen or twenty-five Leghorns or any of the smaller varieties. If you have a flock of birds numbering over 100, divide them into lots of not more tbaa twenty-five, then you can watch them better, look after them and pick out the drones. In building this fall try to arrange the size of your houses so as not to waste much lumber. A good house Is one seven and one-half feet high in front and four and one-half in the rear. This will take a twelve foot board, and all that Is lost is the sawdust. The greater economy we use in the business the larger the profits are. Provide at least six square feet of room In each pen per bird and at least 100 square feet per bird in the yards. Build your housesJjlamp proof, but have plenty of sunlight and provide for the circulation of air. Avoid direct drafts on the birds. If the ground upon which your house Is built Is low, provide board floors, although earth floors are better if they can be had dry. X. A. King in Ameri can Poultry Advocate. DAMES AND DAUGHTERS.

IF y 6 TRY TO OT1 THE-rrr 2 fik-aJ V IX IV ft I 5 creamery The milking machine idea is certain ly making rapid and favorable progress in the minds of dairymen. A writer in Hoard's Dairyman de scribes a milking machine exhibited at the New York state dairymen's conven tion, the Invention of a Mr. Klein of Roanoke, Va. In many respects, he says. It resembles the Burrell machine. It consists of a pail, smallest at the top, with a cover which fits closely, making it air tight. On the cover are metal tubes for the attachment of the rubber tubes leading to each "of the two cows that are simultaneously milk ed into the one pail. There is also an automatic arrangement on the cover called the pulsator. It is by means of this that the intermittent action of the machine Is made possible. As the pulsator oscillates, which it does at the rate of about sixty oscillations per min ute, the vacuum is alternately turned on and off the teat cups, causing suc tion and release from suction at each llternate stroke. This gives opportuni ty for the teat to fill after each act of juction by the machine. The method of operating the pulsator seems to be Mixttrxa MACHECE. the chief point of difference between this machine and the one previously described. Mr. Klein has a specially constructed apparatus, operated by power, which consists of an exhaust pump and a compressor, both coupled to one arbor. The exhaust produces the suction and operates the pulsator In one direction, while the compressor operates the pulsator In the opposite direction. 1 At the convention the milking of four cows was witnessed by the writer, and even with that short experience the cows actually seemed to enjoy the op eration. One cow made a few demon strations not unfamiliar to a dairyman, but the cause seemed to be that the op erator was on the wrong side rather than any real objection to the ma chine. It is evident that with the pail standing between the cows and two cows milked at the same time one of them must be milked from the side op posite that which a man usually ap proaches when going to milk. As everybody was saying, the ma chine milked the cows all right. There was a little stripping to be done, though not much. Whether the cows decreased in flow of milk by the use of the machine can hardly be stated posi tively, though it was claimed that the quantity was about as usual. So far as the dairyman Is concerned with the various inventions in milking machines It would seem advisable to observe awhile. New National Dairy Association. A number of important points were brought out in the papers and discus sion at the meeting and organization of the new National Association of Dairy Instructors and Investigators. The urgent need was mentioned of scientific work necessary to solve many dairy problems for example, the control of moisture In butter, a quick and efficient method of determining moisture, causes and remedy of fishy flavor in butter, influence of pasteur ization on food value of milk, influence of ripening on digestibility of cheese. Emphasis was placed on the demand for more and better trained men In dairy work and raising the standard of dairy instruction. It was also agreed that less time should be de voted to lectures and more to practi cal work in short courses. Every effort should be put forth to encourage keep ing yearly records of dairy cows. There is much need for more scientific and uniform work in connection with the subject of feeding dairy cows. The scientific principles involved in the manufacture of condensed milk should be studied. The value of cheese as a feed is not sufficiently appreci ated in the country, and efforts should be made to Increase its consumption. The Retail Mills Rente. Selling milk directly to the consumer Is the most profitable branch of dairy i : i : V" I I nil imi rarming. With clean, sweet, honest milk and a reliable man to deliver it there Is Usually but little trouble in building op a good reliable route. A few cus tomers well served will advertise the business and the trade will increase. Keeping the cows clean Is a good point. Bed them well and wipe off the udders before milking. Soluble dirt cannot be strained out. Washing the cans Is important. Rinse well with cold water, thea use washing powder and hot water. Then rinse again. If hired help wash the cans watch while the work is being done. Set the cans out of the way of fall ing chaff and dirt. Many customers are lost by selling them badly strained milk. Run it through several thicknesses of strain ing cloth and cool it to 00 degrees. American Cultivator. PUiNiED PARAGRAPHS. Jealousy is like some other things the lid should be kept on it.

The word "cannibalism" is really tho name of a people. It is identical with Carib, many of the Caribs, who for merly flourished in the West Indies, having been consumers of human flesh. The letters "1," "n" end "r" are inter changeable In certain aboriginal Ameri can languages, so that Columbus found one West Indian Island saying "Canl ba" where another said "Carib." while Shakespeare's Caliban is another va riety of the same. Columbus own colt jecture was that the name was con nected with the great khan, and later philologists of the old slapdash type as sociated with "canis," a dog. Ap parently, however, the meaning 'or "carib" was brave and daring. Ko Faith In Him. "Guess that freckled daughter of Thompson's must have a steady young man." "What makes yon think so?"

Nearly one-half of the shipping traffic to and from Antwerp is carried on un der the British and American flags, and this has made Antwerp almost an English speaking port. Free night schools for exclusive classes In Eng lish, organized by the city authorities, are attended by thousands of pupils, while special attention is paid to the study of English in all the 'grades of the day schools, public as well as pri vate. This desire to popularize the Eng lish language is not confined to Bel glum, but has extended to Germany as well, where schools of instruction bavo already been established at Munich and Nuremberg by the German gov ernment.

It would be a stupid as well as savage thing to beat a weary or starved man because he lagged in his work. So in treating the lagging, torpid liver it is a great mistake to lash it with strong drastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an indication of an ill-nourished, enfeebled body whose organs are weary with over-work. Start with the stomach and allied organs of digestion and nutrition. , Put them in working order and see how quickly your liver will become active. . Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has made many marvelous cures of w liver complaint," or torpid k liver, by its wonderful control over the organs of digestion and nutrition. It restores the normal activity of the stomach, increases the secretions of the blood-making glands, cleanses the system of poisonous accumu lations, and so relieves the liver of the burdens imposed upon it by the defection of other organs. . Symptoms. If you have bitter or bad taste in the morning, poor or vari able appetite.coated tongue, foul breath, constipated or irregular bowels, feel weak, easily tired, despondent, frequent headaches, pain or distress in "small of back," gnawing or distressed feeling in stomach, perhaps nausea, bitter or sour "risings" in throat alter eating, and kindred symptoms of weak stomach and torpid liver, or biliousness, no medicine will relieve yon more promptly or cure you more permanently than Dr. Fierce s Golden Medical Discovery. Perhaps only a part of the above svmp toms will be present at one time and yet point to torpid liver, or biliousness and weak stomach. Avoid all hot bread and biscuits, griddle cakes and other indigestible food and take the "Golden Medical Discovery" regularl)' and stick to its use until you are vigorous and strong.
