Salt Every Vmy. Dairy cattle should have access to . .... salt every day. and salt should do ana ed to their stable food. A series of einerlmcnts has convinced mo that when cows are denied salt for a peri od of even ono week they will yiel froml4ja' to 17 percent less milk and that of an inferior Quality. Sucl milk will on an average turn sour 24 hours less time than milk drawn from the same or similar cows rccciv ing salt, all other conditions or treat ment being equal. Conifortablo qiiar ters aro iudespcnsable to tho health and well-being of cows, mantes during the winter should havu a temperature constantly within the range of 40 to 55 decrees Fab. In summer time shade should bo provided in mc pas ture fields or ad lucent thereto 10 pro tect against the bristle-making influ ence of July aud August suns. In al the management ol cows such count tious should be provided and such care given as will insure excellent ncuiiii aud apparent contentment. When practicable, milking should be done by the same person, with regularity as to time. He only that hath clean hands should be allowed to milk a cow. sav "he" becauso I think the men of the farm should do all the milking, at least during tho winter months. I have excercised tho right of changing my mind on that subject since liett the farm. It is no more difficult to milk with dry hands than with them wet. It is certainly more cleanly, and leaves the milk in a much more dcsir able condition for table use or manu facture. Pure stable atmosphere is in dispensable to prevent contamination from that source. Immediate strain ng will remove inpurities which otherwise might be dissolved, to a per manent injury of the whole product. A Boiling Lake in Nevada. Virginia (Nrv.) Enterprise. Recently un item has been going the rounds in regard to a boiling lake near Lassen's Peak, California. It is not generally known, but we have in Ne vada a similar boiling Jake, ltlis sitti ated at the eastern base of the fust arge mountain range cast of the Sink of the Carson. It lies on the edgo of an immense desert a desert so large and scorching that in summer the In dians never attempt to cross it except at night, and even then they always 20 provided with a large supply of water. On three sides ot the lake are rocks two or three hundred feet high. which arc perfectly bare and arc burn ed to a deep brick red. The area of tho lake is about two acres. Ihough steam is constantly rising from the water, the whole surface of the lake does not boil. The agitation boiling is confined to the great springs which burst up at several points. Iheso springs force columns of water from a foot to two or three feet in diam eter toa height of over twenty inches above the ireneral surface of tho lake, causing u loud rippling sou nd and con siderable local commotion. The water of the whole lake, is doubtless boiling lot, though tiot seen to boil, for a brook flowing from it down into the sands of the desert sends up a cloud of 6team for a distance of several huu- red yards. About a mile from the ake is a great deposit of sulphur, unnlng through which are streaks of pure uluui, from two to 6ix inches wide. II in Son Cuicd. Mr. W. II. Hiuman, a prominent and influential citizen of Mount Ver non. III., writes as follows, under date of March 11. 1SW: "One bottle of Swift's Specific (S. S. S. ) cured my sou permanently of m stubborn case of ISIood Poison Unit defied the best med- ieal treaiinent available, l have rec ommended S. S.

This was AVer four years ago, and there has lcen no re turn of the disee since, or any sym toms of it.

SWIFT SPECIFIC CO, Atlanta, Ga. High ltatcs of Speed. -Uaihvay Age. Ou e of our correspondents not long go said a speed of 100 miles an hour y steam locomotives was eutirelv practicable, and thought it would bo ttained. In a recent lecture before a scientific club. Professor Elihu Thom son declared that much higher speeds tan can now be obtained with steam ocouotives are to be expected by means of electricity, and he considered from 100 to even 150 miles an hour pos sible. While iu the steam locomotive there uie reciprocating parts that must be put in motion, stopped, and reversed continually, (11 the electric locomotive we have simply a rotary motion, which makes it possible to run with economy t much higher rate9 ofspced. He be ieved I but if wo could come back af tcr another hundred years, we wculd ud loO miles an hour t' be the speed of traveling, adding, "It simply de pends upon finding the necessary me thod of applying siifhcient power, and building the locomotives to suit, ar rangements being adopted to keep the cars 011 the track." One hundred and fifty miles an hour may beamoug the possibilities, but probably most people nowadays would rather leave to com ing ireiieiaiioiiB the enjoyment of whirling through space at that fright ful velocity. To leave Chicago at night aud be iu New York next morning would be a wonderful achievement, involving ereat increase of business facilities, but the safety of such a speed under present conditions may well be questioned.
