The American Spirit
Si H. Harrlman, the noted financier, returned from Europe with Croat hnpog for American prosperity, "Money/ he said to a reporter, was never so well distributed as now" Our prospects were never so good. Best of all 1 b the dogged and hopeful determination of our American spirit. "There are not the barriers be tween classes hero that there are In Europe. are all sui mountable. And everybody hopes to surmount them and tries to surmount them, and thenco hard, faithful parity. "The American spirit is our best possession. I'll give you an illustra tion of it. An intelligent looking man in handsome clothes entered tho office of the editor of a newspaper and said: Such barriers as we have comes work- —success—pros " 'I understand, sir, that you are in need of an editorial writer.' " 'Wo were/ tho editor answered, 'hut the post has been filled.' "Then the applicant sighed. Then he resumed in a brisk tone: " 'I heard also that you wanted someone to address envelopes. Is that vacancy still open?" "It is," said the editor. " 'Then said the other, 'I'll take It, If 1 may.' "He took it, and I'll wager that be fore many months were gone he was an editorial writer after all." Schoolmarm Squelched. I do not vouch for the following story, because it seems too Boston esque for a Now York boy, says the New York Press. However, the teacher was taking down the names, etc., of the new pupils in the primary grade, when up stepped a little tow head. "Well, my lad, how old are you?'' she asked kiudllly. "My name ain't Lad; it's John," he said sharply. "Well, what is the rest of your name?" "That's all the name I've got—just John." "What . father's name?" Oh, put dad's name down; he ain't cornin' to school. He's too big." "How old are you?" "I ain't old; I'm young." She did not ask for his birth certifi cate. Is your you needn't Flowers From the Elyslan Fields. Mary of Scotland sat a little apart from the others, entertained by her own loveliness. She was making a silent inventory of the good points of Fair Rosamond when the enterprising shade of an ex-complexion specialist Ircm Chicago hurried up. "Pardon, Queen Mary," she began in a business voice, "blit is it really true, as report has It, that you bathod only i:i sweet milk for your complexion?" "Yes, madam," kindly returned the queen, "it is quite true. 1 bought the milk fresh every morning from a milk man." "In that case," returned the g-ac lous ex-eomplexlon specialist In a con descendin'g voice, "your batli was 76 per cent river water to twenty-five parts milk. Thatik you, your majesty." Didn't Want the Mouse. "The oddities of hotel guestl are be yond n umbering," said the room clerk of a New York hotel, according to the Sun, "and there is no account ing for some of them. For instance, we have had an elderly lady stopping with us who the other day sent down word that she wAnted a mouse trap, t sent word back to her that there had not been a mouse in the house for wears. " 'I didn't ask for a mouse,' she re turned word to me. 'I don't want a mouse. I want a trap.' "She got the trap." Just Matched Her Envelope. "Beg pardon," said the postal clerk, "but you don't have to put a flve-ceut stamp on a letter to Canada." "I know," said the sweet girl, "but the shade of It just matches my en velope, you know." WHAT HOME THIS THE POPE'S PHYSICIAN END0BSES AN AMEBICAN BEMEDY. I Dr. Lappunl Ouil Dr. William*' Rink Pill* In Ilia Practice Because Itcsulta Meet His Expectation*. Dr. Lapponi, the famons physician to the Vatican, whose name has recently oomc so greatly to the front on account of bis unremitting attention to His Holiness, the late Pope Leo XIII, au4 the high esteem and confidence with which be is regarded by the present Fqpe, His Holiness Pius X, is a man of oofii ms tiding genius. He is more than a mere man of soience; he is a man of original and independent mind. Un trammeled by the "etiquette'' of the medi ca l profession and having used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People in hie practice with good results, he freely avows the facts and endorses the value of thfe remedy with au authority which no one will venture to question. Dr. Lapponl'a Latter. "I certify that I have used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in four oases of the simple amentia of develop ment. After a few weeks of treat ment, the result came fully up to my expectations. For that reason I shall not fail in the future to extend the nee of thii laudable preparation not only in the treatment of other forms of the category of ansemia or chlorosis, bnt also in eases of neuras thenia and the like." (Signed) Gicrbppf. Lapponi, Via dei Gracchi 882, Rome. The "simple ansemia of development,' referred to by E.'. Lapponi, is of course, that tired, languid condition of youug girls, whoso development to womanhood is tardy and whose health, at that period, is so often imperiled. His opinion of the valuo of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People at that time is of the highest scientific authority, aud it con firms tho many published cases in which ansemia aud other diseases of tho blood, as well as nervous diseases such as ner vous prostration, neuralgia, St. Vitus' dance, paral^is and locomotor ataxia have been cured by these pills. They are commended to the publio for their efficiency in making new blood and strengthening weak nerves. After I such an endorsement they will be ac cepted by the medical nud scientific world at their full value. IP. 4$ <tt BUYING MILK FOR CHEESE. Cheese factories are rapidly changing in many parts of the country to the method of purchasing their milk by the Babcock test, paying for it according to tlie amount of fat it contains. This is as It should be. The old idea that tho amount of fat in the milk had nothing to do with the amountof cheese it would make Is entirely erroneous; and besides, it tends - to develop poor conditions for both cheese factory and patrons. When patrons come to realize that the amount Payment on the Basis of Fat It Con tains Is Fair for All Parties Concerned. of cheese made is dependent upon the amount of fat in the milk, those who are producing good milk will demand that their milk be paid for on a fat basis, otherwise the man with the poor mill., will receive part of the returns that should come to them. Prof. E. H. Farrington says that for every pound of butter-fat contained in ICO pounds of milk 2.6 pounds of cheese can be made. Thus, milk with three per cent, fat in it would make cheese that would weigh 7.8 pounds, while if the butter-fat amounted to four pounds in 100 pounds of milk, that is was whatwe call four .per cent, milk, the amount of cheese made would be 10.4 pounds. Frol. Farrington is an expert in these matters and his figures are probably as accurate as can be obtained. They demonstrate very forcibly the advisability of buying by the test even for cheese making. Moreover, the quality of the cheese Is Influenced by the quantity of fat in the milk as the greater the per cent, of fat in the milk the Richer the cheese. Pay ment for the milk on the fat basis will cause an effort to breed for a richer quality of milk, and this will react upon the average quality of cheese from that factory, enabling It lo bring a better price on the market and in the end will result In higher prices for the milk. Like many other farm operations, in studying the effect of a given action, we must, look beyond the Immediate effect If we would realize the full possibilities. —Prairie Farmer. WATER DRAWING DEVICE. Simple Expedient Which Is of Great Practical Value. Especially for Small Wells. To tilt the pail when drawing water from a well, or when bailing out a cistern, use the sim ple expedient shown herewith. Attach a small cord to the lip where the han dle is attached to one side of the pall, and pass it through a loop made In the pail rope. Pull on the small cord to; tilt the pal! when ' it rests upon the water. When full, pull on the pail rope, the two lines then being grasped as one. The buck et Is then easily and quickly brought to the surface. The device is a most excellent one, especially in small wells. —Orange Judd Farmer. j CEMENT TROUGH FOR COWS The Invention of a Wisconsin Dairy man Who Considers It of Con siderable Practical Value.

Last year England imported 219,000 tons of butter. The United States ex ported about 4,000 tons. These facts leave a fair inference that England offers an open market for more than 50 times as much butter as we are in the habit of exporting. England's pur chases of this article lrom foreign countries and from her colonies amount to about J 100,000,000 a year. Our export Bales of it approximate $1,500,000. England purchased last year about 136,000 tons of cheese. Our total exports were in the vicinity of 8,000 tons, worth about $2,250,000. Canada, whom wc are prone to regard as an economic inferior, exported ten times as much as we did. This leaves a fair inference that there Is in Eng land alone a possible market for some $40,000,000 worth of cheese every year. —N. Y. Sun. The Size of Strawberries. A certain grower of strawberry plants says that lie expects within ten years to grow strawberries as large as pineapples. We do not know how small he has seen pineapples, but we haye seen watermelons that were not as large as some strawberries. But. seriously, we think the size of the berries we now see is sufficient, and hope some one will try to improve the quality instead ol trying to increase the size. If we have got to slice our strawberries to eat them, it will seem to be a nuiaanct;. And most of the very large varieties we have seen were not equal in flavor to the smaller sorts.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. A Cure for Kicking Cows. To keep a cow from kicking while being milked Is too simple n thing to argue about, said a practical farmer the other day. We just buckle a strap snugly around the body In front of ud der and she can't move her hind feet. She won't try It more titan once. Colts can be broken of kicking In the same manner, but they require the strap buckled tighter than the cow does.-— Midland Farmer. POINT TO BE CONSIDERED. WUl the Farmers Accept Aid of City Friends of Good Roads or Treat Them as Meddlersf Among those Interested In road Ira provement the farmers, of course, stand first. The character and coudl tlon of the roads are of vital interest to them every day in the year. Tha farmers until recently have been com pelled to struggle with the road prob lem without much help or encourage ment from any other ciass. Now, how ever. some strong elements of the city population are rallying to their sup port. Among these may he named tha manufacturers of road building nta chlnery, the makers and users of bi cycles and automobiles and men of tha cities who have money invested In tha ! country. These people are entering | into the work for road Improvement with even metre enthusiasm and zeal | than the farmers. ! Just now the farmers who want bet I ter roads are brought face to face with Will he : a most Important question; accept the assistance of these city allies? Will he welcome the aid of the machinery man, the capitalist, the bi cyclist and the automobilist? Or will ho treat them as schemers -who are | trying to meddle with his affairs? The answer to these questions ought to depend on what these city friends of good roads are proposing to do. If they propose to have the country roads Improved in order to increase their business, and enhance their pleasures, wholly at the expense of the farmer, then he should spurn the proffered alliance. If, on the contrary, they are proposing, through state and national taxation, to lift a large part of the burden off the farmer and place it on the taxpayers of the cities, he ought to bid them welcome and extend the glad hand. This is a live question for the farm er to consider and answer. Already the opponents of state and nationaal aid are at work trying to sow seeds of suspicion in the minds of the farmers, and they will do their best to prevent any cooperation between the country and city friends of good roads. As a matter of fact, state and na tional aid offer the only hope of gen eral road improvement, and such aid can never he secured if the city people array,themselves against It. Unless the farmers are wholly blind to their own interests they will welcome aid from any and every source, and will make every effort to secure the power ful-aid of the state and federal gov ernments.

A Utter from Atchison, Kan., says that an unusual number of live stock have been killed this summer by light ning running along barbed-wire fences. Twelve cattle were thus killed recently near Farmington; they stood with their heads against the wire, say there is no limit to the amount of electricity a barbed wire can carry, but that farmers can prevent this killing of live slock by grounding the wires fre quently along the fence—that is. run a wire connected with the barbed wires jnto the ground from the posts at a dis tance of about 100 feet. These grounded wires will carry the electricity Into tha ground. A charge of lightning striking a barbed w ire will kill anything touch ing the wire, even though the fence bo 20 miles long. Electricians Best Results from Meadows. The Michigan experiment station found after repeated tests that about four times as much food can be obtained from a meadow by allowing it to mature hay than by pasturing it. This means that four'eows can be kept on the land by growing hay instead of pasturing it; or. to show it in another light, four times as much land is required for pas ture as for hay, for the same number of cattle. Green food is given by grow ing soiling crops, but in soiling from two to three times the number of cowt can be maintained than by pasturing. A New Peat Fertilizer. The peat bogs which abound in th* north end of Mason county, 111., and render many acres of land unavailable for agricultural purposes, are now being put to use. The land Is skimmed nud the top layer of peat removed, and then passed through a pulverizing and dry ing process. After this a city sewage is mixed with it and It is sold as fertilizer.
