jcount von Bcrrstorff Tells of the Pub
lic Spirit Which Has Brought
Them Advantages.
: Count von Be~nstorfr, German ?.m
ijassacor to the United Stat- \ recent
ly spoke before the Worn; :;'s Civic
league of Baltimore on "Covernmeut
.of German Cities."
The usual torm of government in a
{German city, he said, was a council,
?which elected an ober bargomeister
(and two assistant burgomeisters, or
j city managers. Tho position of tha
j-first was practically a Iii position if
?he were satisfactory, although Le wa?
jre-elected at long intervals.
Sneaking of the old city of Prank
port, County Berr.storff described how
[it had grown. Streets, he said, are not
[laid out by private enterprise, but ty
ithe act;on of the city council. Thu
Icouncil also regulates buildings in the
various sections of the town and for
bids that there shall be more than s
{certain proportion of thc land built
{upon, so that there may be sufficient
fopen spaces.
"Within the last ten years, he de
clared. Frankfort had expended more
than $50,000,000 in the purchase of
land in the city and outside of it, 60
that at present the city owns 16,650
acres, 3.S00 of which are outside of the
city limits. Owning this land, the
city regulates its growth as seems
best, builds model homes for workmen,
constructs parks and playgrounds, and
builds Echools, colleges, museums and
the like.
"The workmen's insurance laws,"
Baid the speaker, "have had a great in
ffiuence on the German cities in getting
a strong impetus which led to the cre
ation of many useful municipal institu

is a record to be proud of and present?
a strong contrast to the record of Los

absolutely nothing was done. It if
also pathetic to contemplate the fact

Maker Valuable Fertilizer on Any
Kind of Land, But More Especial
ly on Stiff, Clay Soils.
(Ey E. J. MILLER.)
Rye which is sown in the fall for
preen feed during cold weather may
ba economically used in at least three
ways the next spring and the early
summer. One of these ways is to usa
it for pasture. Another way is to use
it for a summer soiling crop for miik
An acre or two on rich land will
produce a large amount of early green
feed, and i'r.e crop can be used for
nearly three months.
To usa rye as a soiling crop, keep
the stock off it in the spring; and
when it is tall enough to cut. take the
1 mower to the patch and cut enough
for two days' feeding. Rake this and
store in tito barn and reed out. Then
mow enough more for another two
days' feeding and continue the same
method until the patch is all mown.
By this time the rye of the first
mowing will have grown up enough
' for a second cutting, and in succession
it may be cut several times during the
early spring and summer. In this way
a great number of cows may be kept
on a limited area of pasture.
And a third and excellent way to use
j rye the following spring, after sowing i
: is to allow it to grow up almost to ?
maturity and plow the entire crop un
der as green manure. For this pur
pose allow it to head out and seed j
come into the milk stage.
It is a valuable fertilizer on any
j kind of land, and especial'" valuable
on stiff, clay soil, and making the coil
friable and easy to work.
The mature rye plant decomposes
quickly when plowed under, and gives |
no ill effects from souring.
The humus content of the soil is ap- j
preciably increased, and the general
good effect on the soil can be noticed
on succeeding crops for two or three j
Problem of Sanitary Milk Supply ls to]
Exclude All Bacteria Possible
Some Precautions.
Milk from healthy cows is practical
ly free from bacteria when secreted.
The problem of a sanitary milk sup
ply, therefore, is to keep out all bac
teria as far as possible. Bacteria are
introduced into milk mainly by small
particles of dirt which either drop into
the milk from the cow or arc carried
In the air.
Repeated tests have shown that evcL
when a cow is cleaned ss thoroughly
as is possible under stable conditions,
particles of dust' will be thrown efl
from her body during milking time,
and these get into the milk and con
taminate it. Cows should be kept|
away from sources of contamination.
such as sink holes in which stagnant!
water accumulates, for such holes |

Clean Milk Cannot Be Produced From
Cows Kept in Muddy or Filthy
gerous to infants, causing digestive
troubles. There should be no places
in the hara yard for water to stagnate.
The manure should be kept gathered
up, and every other effort made to
keep the cow free from contamination.
The cow should be thoroughly
cleaned, preferably immediately be
fore milking. It is also well to clip j
the hair short around the flanks and:
udder, and always advisable to moist-1
en the flanks just before milking. All]
of these precautions tend to lessen the
amount of dust or loose hair which I
will be given eft* from the cow.
In Many Cases Fencing of Field Wi I.
Pay for Woven Wire Used-Good
Aid to Prosperity.
(By E. J. MILLER.)
Fencing and moving of fences should
be done early, so that ail of the spar?
heidi; can be grazed over to make usc
of the grasses and other herbage thai
have grown up in them after the earlj
fall rains.
Much feed can be saved in this wuy
the stock will do better and it will give
the permanent pastures time tc
green up before the cold weather
New and clean pastures mean health
ier animals, and the utilizing of all th?
fence rows means turning waste prod
ucts into dollars.
In many cases the fencing of a field
this tall for new pastures will entirelj
pay for the woven-wire fencing used j
