Tbe Sunday school scholars have attended
well this year. For many years gold and silver
medals have been awarded at the close of each

“Button System” was inaugurated May Ist.
An advanced button is given every two months
to all who miss but one Sunday in the two
months, the final button being a gold one.
This has increased the regular attendance very
much, as to win out the scholar must attend 46
Bundays out of the 52, whereas before they
could win a silver medal if they came two
thirds, or 35 Sundays. Those schools who de
sire punctual and regular attendance should
adopt this system.

27tb,) Rev, Frank M. Hurt, of Baltimore, will
preach for Rev. Mr. Beall at Fork in the morn
ing. Mr. Hurt is a local preacher of much
power and i 9 well aDd favorably known.
Without thinking of the notoriety it would
give him (which he did not want) he married
a couple in a den of lions in Baltimore some
time ago. Those who want to listen to a good
old-fashioned Methodist sermon should hear
him. R.

The Monkton bridge has been completed,
but the county officials have certainly accepted
an inferior piece of work ; besides it is unsafe
for travel inasmuch as the course of the stream
has been diverted, which has necessitated the
building of a stretch of roadway which is not
over 30 feet wide and no railing to prevent one
going over the embankment on either side. In
case of accident the county would undoubtedly
pay thecoßt in money, as it should not have
been opened to travel until safe.

guests of the Fallston Farmers’ Club, on Satur
day last at the farm of Mr. J. B. Twining. They
were much pleased with what wbb seen and
what took place. The large crops of grain and
roots—the latter consisting of 3,000 bushels of
rutabagas and 500 bushels of turnips—prove
tbe fertility of tbe land and energetic efforts of
Mr. Twining. The roots are this season of
slow sale.

Old Home Sold, But Aged Couple Will
Not Leave It —After spending sixty years on
their farm, at Black Rock, Baltimore couDty,
Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Sparks have sold it to their
son, Mr. T. C. Sparks, a well-known merchant
of Alesia, Md. Mr. and Mrs. Sparks wished to
retire, and offered the farm for sale. Realizing
that his parents were much attached to the
homestead, he purchased it. He will probably
put a tenant on the place and allow his parents
to live on it as long as they desire. The farm
is situated in one of the most fertile sections of
the upper part of Baltimore county and con
tains 200 acres .—Baltimore Sun.
A Very Good Reason—lf True.—Three
Towson sportsmen who last year went on a
three-dav gunning trip to Harford county,killed
nearly 60 rabbits. Ibis year the same party
guDned over the same grounds and bagged only
20. This looks like the bunny family was be
ing rapidly thinned out.— Towson Union.
The Belair +Egis republishes the above and
says: "The inference of Brother Long Decker
is not correct. Our lands are being so rapidly
improved by thrifty farmers that sufficient
covering is not left nowadays to protect
rabbits.’’

district. In addition to the recovery of the
land, Mr. Slack claims S3OO damages. It is
stated in the declaration that Mr. Whiteford
wrongfully entered upon this land oia Decem
ber 2d and ejected Mr. Slack, who is alleged to
> the true owner. Mr. J. Albert Slajf is Mr.
ft ack’s attorney.
Dairymen’s Association Organized—
Baltimore Countlan Is Made President.—
The dairymen of Baltimore city and the State
of Maryland generally held a well attended
meeting in Baltimore on Tuesday last at which
a State Dairymen’s Association was organized.
Mr, SamueLM. Shoemaker, of Baltimore coun
ty, was elected president; Mr. A. W. Nicode
mns, of Frederick county, vice-president, and
Mr. J. Alexis Shriver, of Harford county, sec
retary-treasurer.
The morning session began at 10.30 o’clock,
with Mr. Shoemaker in the chair. He an
nounced the purpose of the meeting and the
organization of such an association. During
the morning session papers were read by Dr. 8.
8. Buckley and Prof. C. W. Melick, of the
Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station.
The paper of Professor Melick was particularly
interesting. Extracts from it are as follows:
"The purpose of the State Dairymen’s Asso
ciation is similar to that of the State Horticul
tural Society, State Tobacco Growers’ Associa
tion and the Corn Breeders’ Association. It
may never be necessary for the dairymen of the
State to sell their butter, cream or milk collec
tively, but it is necessary for their best inter
ests and for the interests of the dairy industry
of Maryland for them to co operate with each
other, to become acquainted and keep in touch
with the best men in the business. The dairy
department of the Maryland Agricultural Ex
periment Station has for the past year been
carrying on a series of investigation in the
creameries of the Btate, to ascertain if possible
the causes of lack of uniformity of creamery
butter. Thus far there have been many causes
noted for the lack of uniformity in the butter
and many more may be found. The appli
ances used in different localities are not uni
form and the result is complex and bad. Mary
land is classified among the dairy states. With
her 148,000 milch cows valued at $4,460,000, the
annual production of $5,299,000 worth of milk,
cream and butter, her dairy products rank only
third in value among her agricultural resources.
The wheat and corn crops alone exceed the pro
ducts of our dairies. It is high time for the
dairymen to organize and get together on this
commercial question, which is of great value
to our State.
‘‘Present day conditions demand well in
formed, skilled, progressive men. We have
excellent buttermakers in our State, but there
has been little chance for anyone aside from
their employers to find it out.”
At the afternoon session the most important
address was delivered by Dr. J. H. Mason
Knox, of Baltimore. Dr. Knox made a strong
Jtlea for clean milk and said that the public was
ust beginning to realize that the high mortal
ity among infants during the summer months
is primarily caused by impure and contami
nated milk. Continuing, be said in part:
‘‘lt is an unstinted plfcsure for me to address
you gentlemen on your relation to physicians.
You have all read and know of the high mor
tality suffered in this and other cities resulting
from impure milk fed to babies. We are doing
our utmost to educate the people to the abso
lute necessity of handling milk during the
summer with the greatest care, for it is a food
which is easily a prey to germs. We physi
cians know that the natural food for the infant
is that which it should obtain in a natural
manner from its mother’s breast. But here is
where the danger begins. The mother is un
able to nurse the child and cow’s milk is re
sorted to. How can we compare the stomach
of an infant with that of a calf? We should
have a uniform grade of infant mijk not con
taining more than 3 per cent, proteid and 4 per
cent, sugar. Milk from Jersey cows is entirely
too strong for infants. We physicians are do
ing our utmost to combat the diseases which
carry off thousands of infants during the warm
weather and we must have assistance from the
producers of the milk.
“There should be a perfect system of refrig
eration in the transportation of milk from the
dairies to the cities which in a manner would
prevent the multiplication of disease germs in
the product. But the cleanliness and correct
handiing must begin at the milking, and it
should not end until the milk is deliVered at the
door of the consumer. It is a barbarous service
that you dairymen have in transporting your
products to the city. I refer to the common,
ordinary freight cars where there is absolutely
no refrigeration whatever during the summer
months.”
An interesting address was delivered by Dr.
Marshall L. Price, secretary of the State Board
of Health. He explained the scientific aspect
of the milk problem and showed that thous
ands of cases of contagious diseases have been
traced to impure milk.
Among those from Baltimore county who
attended were Messrs. S. M. Shoemaker, A. B.
Gardiner, Jr., Lewis M. Bacon, E. P. Royston
and T. Melville Pearce. Mr. Gardiner was
chosen a member of the executive committee.

They Approve the Turnpike Plan.—A
few days ago a large delegation of citizens of
Baltimore county appeared before the Good
Roads Commission in Baltimore and urged it
to take over and extend through the county all
the turnpikes that now run through it that can
be obtained without cost. This is practically
what M ay or Mabool and the Commissioners for
Opening Streets want, and the suggestion was
made that the county and city people confer
and strengthen their cases by joining forces on
the turnpike question.
The delegation expected to meet the whole
Commission, but the Commission did not so
understand it, and the only person present was
Chairman John M. Tucker. They laid their
case before Mr. Tucker, and pointed out to him
why they believe the Commission should con
struct the roads in the county over the turn
pikes.
Mr. William McAllister, on behalf of the
Federated Civic and Protective Association,
presented the resolutions along these lines
adopted at a recent meeting of the association.
He also presented similar resolutions from the
Baltimore County Fire Department, and urged
upon Mr. Tucker the wisdom of acquiring the
turnpikes.
Mr. John 8. Ensor enlarged upon Mr. Mc-
Allister’s statement and asked that the Com
mission not construe the word "system" in the
road law in a technical way.
"What we want you to do,” he said, “is to
give us a liberal interpretation of this word
•system’ that will enable the Commission not
to spend its money on two or three roads in our
county, but to improve all the turnpikes run
ning through the county and into the city.”
Mr. William P. Cole also urged that the turn
pike plan would benefit the greatest number of
people in the county, and said it was desired by
the greatest number. Mr. Ensor said the peo
ple, regardless of politics, wanted this plan
adopted. ....
Those in the delegation, besides the speakers,
were Messrs. Laban Sparks, George Jessop,
Frederick Glantz, Harry E. Goodwin, C. Ross
Mace, Dr. Charles Mattfeldt, William Byerly,
E. Stanton Bosley, Charles Sack, J. H. Hop
kins, John P. Rumpf, John P. Mays and
others.

“Can We Grow the Feeds That We
Need Without Buying Any?”—This was
the subject discussed at the last meeting of the
Junior Gunpowder Agricultural Club. We
give below the views of some of those present:
Mr. E. E. Spottsaid; "It depends much on
the kind of farming we do as to whether we can
grow the feeds. If there is but little stock
then we can, but if dairying is carried on some
crops can be sold and the protein foods bought,
which would give better results. If we grow
alfalfa, which we all ought to try to do, we
may in a measure meet the requirements of
feeding stock. With alfalfa I could do without
cotton seed meal. I try to sell enough corn so
as to buy the protein feed. I hear of alfalfa
and corn ensilage giving satisfaction, as no
feeds are bought.”
Mr. E. Gittings Merryman said : “I know
of good results with dairy cattle by using alfalfa
ana ensilage, and the development of young
stock and heifers by the use of swill slop, and
hear of barley slop benefiting hogs and is much
used. The gluten is obtained at but little cost
by using swill.”
Mr. Upton H. Tarbert said: “The protein
gotten in the slop from distilleries is so cheap
that we can use a great deal of it. We must
give a cow plenty of food to get profitable re
sults. The only solution is to grow alfalfa,
which contains the elements which we are sup
posed to buy. Alsike clover makes a good feed.
Oats for the dairy herd must be ground to be of
benefit.”
Mr. Lewis M. Bacon said: “If we have
alfalfa and corn ensilage we could do without
buying feed. I have not done well yet with
alfalfa; have not given up and will try again.
In the high price feeds we do not know what is
in them and hence better grow what we know
we are getting.”
Mr. Daniel S. Pearce said: “I have not been
able to grow all the feeds I need. I grow wheat
to sell and buy bran. With twenty bushels of
wheat I can buy three fourths of a ton of bran.
Fifty bushels of oats will about do the same.
I do not see how I can as yet do without buy
ing some feeds. Plenty of corn ensilage and
alfalfa goes a great way in supplying the
necessary feeds. This is the first year I have
had alfalfa for my cows. I am much pleased
with it and the results. I feed it once a day
but sparingly. Beven acres gave 19 four-horse
loads, or about four tons per acre. The alfalfa
was cut four times, but the first cutting was the
best. It is a question as to it being advisable to
sell corn and buy feeds.”
Mr. George E. Shelley said: “I have never
been able to grow the necessary feeds and as
yet have been unsuccessful with alfalfa. I
think we should grow the feeds we need. I
like ground oats for cows, giving about one
fourth as the proportion in the feed. Oats is
highly recommended and is about a balanced
ration for other stock.”
Mr. Granville Matthews said : "For milk
we should have protein feeds. It may be well
to grow wheat so as to buy bran. If barley is
fed and not ground it should be soaked.”
Mr. William D. Curry said: "I think with
alfalfa and ground corn we could about meet
the, feed problem. I have as good alfalfa by
growing it with other grasses and will sell at
remunerative prices. I can keep thirty cows
on 16 acres of corn, the fodder cut up being fed
them. It is cut and salted as put away and the
cows leave but little of it. 1 would not feed oat
straw to cows and keep it from them as it is a
disadvantage to them. If I need straw for bed
ding I can do as suggested—buy Bomeone’s
straw rick. It is cheaper to buy cottonseed
meal than to grow oats to get the protein.”
Messrs. C. D. Price aud T. P. W. France
thought favorably of alfalfa, ensilage, barley
and oats; all but the former can be grown suc
cessfully by all farmers. Alfalfa may become
a general crop after awhile, as every effort is
being made to establish it.

"No Insurance.” —The Carroll Record of
recent date, under this caption says: “Once
in a while, in the report of a fire the statement
is made that there was "no insurance.” For
tunately such cases are compartively rare, as
most people with good judgment regard fire in
surance as a necessity and as a part of the ex
pense of conducting a business that cannot be
done without. Indeed it is absolutely true
that those who do not carry reasonable insur
ance are not good business men, but careleßS
and foolish and very properly meet with little
or no sympathy in case of loss.
“As a rule the man who cannot afford to
carry insurance cannot afford to own property,
and one who is too ‘saving’ to spend the money
for it is not to be trusted in his every day deal
ings with men. The only exception to this
manner of viewing the question is when insur
ance rates are very high and the owner can
stand a loss without seriously affecting him
financially—when he considers the saving of
premiums as sums set aside with which to
make good his fire losses.
"Every person who owns property—whether
small or large in amount—should have it in
sured against fire loss. Even the new beginner,
with but a a few hundred dollars’ worth of per
sonal property, should protect it, without wait
ing, and without ‘taking chances.’ The less
able one is to stand even a small loss, the less
can he afford to save the money insurance
costs. It may appear heartless and uncharita
ble to refuse to helpthose who burn out, with
out insurance, but when one does not try to
help himself he is scarcely entitled to help
from others, and doing so simply puts a premi
um on shiftlessness. Do not put yourself in
the ‘no insurance’ class, under any considera
tion.”
