Some Bird. At the recent maneouvers of the battleships in southern waters, a visitor on board one of the ships was talking to an old salt, and the old salt warmed up enough to show the visitor some of his treasures and curios collected in all parts of the world. One thing he showed was a photograph of a most extraordinary looking bird. "What's that?" asked the visitor. "That." the sailor replied, "Is the plctur' of a pet eagle we used to have on board this here ship." "But it doesn't look much like an eagle." Ill I'UUI BC lllll, IU1 UK , EUOVI. ..w u had all his feathers pulled out. You see, there's a story goes with that pictur'. One time when we was layin' off the shore of Cuby we hears of a bunch of dagos what had a champeen fightin' rooster. This rooster was the sure champeen. He had licked all the other fightin' roosters on the island an' was worth his weight in gold. Them dagos was mighty proud of their fightin* bird an* offered to Pack him against all comers. "We was struck with an idee. This here ol" eagle that shows in the pictur* was amoonin' round the ship an' we decided we would match him against that champeen fightin' cock. So a few of us goes ashore, meets up with them Cubians and gets to talkin' fight. They was eager. So we made a match for a thousand dollars, Mex., a side, the birds to be produced at the pitside on a certain day an' all bets to be play or pay. "Them Cubians was daffy about their bird an' we took occasion to go "?hnw several times an' bet them to a standstill. Finally, after the ossifers had chipped in, we had fifteen thousand iron men bet on that fight? Mex., you understand meanin' some seven thousand and a half of good money. We picked the feathers outen our eagle, 'cept those roun' its neck an' on the tips of its wings; an" when the day come we puts the eagle in a sack an* goes ashore?the hull bunch of us. "They was a bunch of Cubians there, all still daffy, an' we bet all the rest we had. Finally the preliminaries was arranged an' we picked a referee, makin' the 'greement it was play or pay? an' not callin' our eagle a rooster, but a bird. When we got it all arranged, with the bet-money in satisfactory hands, they sent In their rooster?it sure was a fine bird!?an' we shook the eagle- outen the sack. Them Cubians hollered a little, but it was play or pay. "Pretty soon the ol' eagle, after blinkln' for a time, begin lookin' on the ground for bugs to eat. The champeen rooster paraded roun' and presently took a flyin' leap at the eagle an' gaffed him good. The ol' eagle Just blinked and kep' on lookin' fer bugs. The rooster give another parade an' lit in agin. He gaffed that ol' eagle something shameful; but the ol' eagle Just blinked an* eontinered lookin* fer hugs. Then the rooster was hoppin' mad; an* he got back, balanced and come up with a fearful swipe at the eagle with them sharp gaffs of hls'n. This time the ol* eagle thought it was about the period to put an* end to this here sort of foolishness and he waited until the champeen rooster was backin' away. Then the ol* eagle reached out. grabbed that there chicken an' pulled its head clean off with one pull. "The Cubians made a horrible yell, but we got the money an' beat It back to the ship; an* since then this here ol' eagle?who died a spell ago?has been, as y' might say, a sort of a pleasln' reminiscence roun' this ol' tub." Not His.?A tall, nervous looking man entered the department In the railroad station where lost articles are kept. "Anything turned in here today?" he shouted to the man at the desk. There was no reply. "I say has anything been turned in here today?" he repeated in a louder tone of voice. "Yes, sir," calmly replied the man at the desk without raising his eyes. "Well, why couldn't you say so? I've lost an umbrella." There was no reply. "I say I've lost an umbrella." "I heard you, sir." "You heard me? Well, why can't you tell me what was turned in. "Well, sir, a man was in here this morning who turned his toes in. They wouldn't happen to be yours, sir, would they?"?Yonkers Statesman.

"Dean," said he, "the music of those chimes is so beautiful that it always sets me dreaming of the past. My boyhood days"? "What do you say?" interrupted the venerable dean. "I say the chimes are very, very beautiful. They make me think"? "What?" yelled the dignified old dean again. "The chimes?the chimes?how beautiful"? "Speak louder," cried the dean once more.

Mitchell in Progressive Farmer. Facts About Milk. A small boy was assigned the topic for his school essay, "The Snakes of Ireland." He began by saying, "There ain't none." Perhaps this is not quite the dairy situation in our country, but all over the south there are whole neighborhoods where the dairy and its products are practically unknown. As the late Dr. S. A. Knapp often expressed it, "Too many of our farm folks today are living out of a tin garden and milking a tin cow." So I trust this dairy edition of the paper may be a great "arousement" special and that we may have more and better milk for our family use and for the use of other families. Care In Milking. Frequently in my visits to farm neighborhoods, when I speak of milk and its importance in the diet, particularly in the diet of children, the housewives shake their heads and say, "My children do not like milk and they will not eat butter." Then I always have my suspicions about that particular milk and butter. No article of food is so sensitive to careful handling as are the dairy products. It may be that the milk receives its contamination before it comes into the housewife's hands. Possibly the barns are carelessly kept, the cows have received no attention, the methods of the milker may be slip-shod. Any one or all of these causes would be sufficient to render the milk poor in flavor and unsafe in quality even before it is passed into the house for further handling. The first essential to good milk is a healthy cow. Then the barns and stalls must be clean, well lighted and well ventilated, and the cow herself kept scrupulously clean by the frequent use of the curry comb and brush, supplemented by the dampened cloth. The milker's hands offer another and frequent source of danger to milk. The hands should be thoroughly washed with soap and water and the cuffs turned back during the milking to avoid brushing the cow. In view of the manifold duties which are already borne by the farm housewife, I cannot recommend that she assume the task of milking, but I feel sure of one fact, that if a clean, wholesome product is brought into her kitchen, she will be forced to exercise more or less supervision over the milking process and the conditions under which the milk is taken. Proper Care of Utensils. From the time the milking is begun the succeeding operations should be carried on with as much rapidity as is consistent with necessary care. An eight-fold strainer of cheese cloth is considered right and proper. After straining, the milk is promptly cooled. This is accomplished by placing the milk pails in vessels of cold water, a temperature somewhat below 50 degrees being considered as ideal. Scrupulous care in the washing of pails, pans, and other utensils is of no less importance than are the earlier processes. The vessels should first be cleansed front dregs of milk, with cold water, then treated to a generous washing with hot soap suds containing washing soda, rinsed free front the soap solution with cold water, thoroughly scalded, after which they are inverted upon an out-door shelf in the sunshine, or on a clean tabic in the dairy room in datnp weather, where they are left to air and dry. Three Deaths In One Family From Unclean Milk. It may occur to some reader that there is unnecessary detail, here in dealing with the handling of milk. In defense of this I may say that undoubtedly much of the illness among the babies and little children both of town and country. Is due to the unsanitary condition of the milk that is offered to them a3 food. It was only the other day that a mother told me that she had lost three children from disease brought on by the unclean milk produced at her own barn. Milk sours, not because of warm temperature conditions, not because of a sudden thunderstorm, but because of the presence of bacteria introduced through the milking and later processes of handling. Milk taken with the precautions I have suggested when kept in an ordinary temperature will keep sweet a number of days. Bottled mdk taken with due precaution has been subjected to the hot rays of the summer sun for several hours and opened after a period of 48 hours to find the milk perfectly sweet. The idea that thunder storms and the souring of milk have any connection has been disproved by numbers of experiments. Milk that has been submerged in cool water immediately after milking and that has had scrupulous care as to the conditions under which it was taken is in no wise subject to souring during a thunderstorm. Milk Not to be Drank Hastily. Milk is often and rightly called a perfect food. It contains from three to five per cent fat, five per cent sugar and there per cent tissue-building food called casein. It contains a small amount of mineral matter and eighty-seven per cent water. Milk becomes a solid as soon as it is taken into the stomach and for this reason should be taken in sips rather than in hasty draughts, as is so often done. In fact, milk is oftentimes wrongly considered a beverage and used as such, when in reality it is a food. For this reason milk taken as a beverage with a heavy dinner adds materially to the .food content of the dinner and often brings complications in the digestive processes. In addition to the excess food condition the presence of acids in the stomach for the complete digestion of the other foods prevents the digestion of the milk. The digestion of milk cannot possibly take place in such a strong acid solution.?Mrs. F. 1^ Stevens of Raleigh, N. C., in the Manufacturers' Record. Bad Farming. When will farmers brace up to the consideration of preserving the fertility of their soil ? No matter what crop is grown, there Is a constant evidence of a decline of productive power in the land. It has always been supposed that the legume plants like peas, beans and the clovers were the least exhausting on the land of any, but here comes Mr. R. M. Ballard, an extensive grower of peas in the eastern counties of Wisconsin, who says tnat ne will De onngeu 10 seea new fields for this Industry because of the rapid failing of fertility In the old pea sections. This is simply the old story of selling out the farm by the bushel or the ton. Farmers must take into consideration the ever governing fact that every crop, no matter what, exhausts the soil of some of Its elements of fertility and if they are wise unto its salvation, they will pay back to the land in special fertilizers some of the revenue they have received from it. Let that be considered a fixed charge to be met every year. The final effect will be that in a few years the farmer will have under his feet, a strong resolute soil that will answer back to him in good crop in almost any season. These are the ever present considerations: Drainage for the surplus water: humus to hold the natural and necessary soil moisture and the nitrogen; ground limestone to correct the growing acidity of the soil and furnish what lime is needed by the clovers, including alfalfa; phosphate for the grain: potash for its share in the general economy of fertility. Now, if any of these conditions and elements are wanting they must be supplied. That is plain, common sense, else down goes the productive power of the land. That means future loss to the farmer. Too many farmers are like the man who said he could get rich on the proceeds of his labor if it did not cost so much to keep up the machine in food and clothing. It does cost something to keep up the productive power of the land. And the beauty of it is that the farmer in reality is no poorer for it. He has kept up the production, and consequently the selling value of his property. There is no poverty or hardship in that. Those pea farmers in Wisconsin are no different than the wheat farmers in Minnesota, or the corn farmers in Illinois. They are now confronted with the judgments of an outraged soil. Because the judgment is . deferred, many think it will never he levied. But it will. They are like the Irishman who was caught stealing a pig. The owner, an old Quaker, said to him. "Thee will pay for this on the Judgment Day." "Troth," said Pat, "If I'd knowed yees was going to wait as long as that for your pay, I'd taken two." What is needed is the spirit and pride of good farming. We must trust ourselves to the well settled principles of good farming, assured that if we do, we will "make our calling and election sure." No country ever prospered by an impoverishment of the soil. * Land Values and the Automobile.? With the coming of the auto car. the farm is as good a place as any for the man who has done his work. The retired farmer does not have to hibernate during his declining years in town. The Influence in this instance is toward keeping up the country population. Then the city man moves out of town and lives on the farm on which he was born?it is an easy matter to cover the ten or twenty or thirty miles into a business that opens at H o'clock of a summer morning. The back-woods districts are put on the map by the machine. Land becomes worth while when living upon it is improved and it is possible to get the products quickly to market. The farmer who is five hours from civilization with an ox-team is brought within an hour by an automobile. You can figure yourself in what degree a macntne wouiu increase me vuiuu ?u his land to himself. The Cerro Gordo county (la.) farmers say they have gotten over their longing to retire to the village. Report comes front Texas that big farmers who made their headquarters in town are moving out in the country. Districts ten and twelve miles out from cities in that state are developing truck farming to the increased value of land there. In a word, old lands are made valuable by increase of population and by a changed form of agriculture that the automobile makes possible, and remote areas are brought within the realm of usefulness and progressive met hods.?

I have just witnessed a fight between a good snake and a bad snake; a fight terrible and grotesque in the extreme, yet destined to be of great benefit to humanity. The encouragement of the good snake's species is one of the means by which a hideous menace to human life in South America is to be combated. My colleague and I were driven in a swift automobile to the Serotheraptic institute of Butantan, which lies amid exquisite tropical vegetation, the beauty of which is only marred by the thought of the deadly snakes and insects It conceals. The institute is conducted by Dr. VI tal Brazil, one of the most distinguished scientists of Brazil. He has prepared a serum of great efficacy for snake bite. More than 1,000 persons lose their lives annually from this cause in the most civilized parts of the country, and what happens In the vast wild regions can only be guessed at. We enter a great hall in which are glass jars containing snakes in alcohol, snakes of all sizes, of all colors, some intact, others dissected, to show their different organs. But we have come to see the cannibal serpent, and we beg Dr. Brazil to show him to us without delay. The doctor extracts him from a box by means of a long curved stick, and places him on the ground near us. He is a large non-venomous viper, about four feet long, thick and muscular, of a bluish color, glittering like bright steel. He crawls around and raises his flat head, darting forth his long tongue in a way that seems to us threatening, despite his good reputation. To reassure us, Dr. Brazil picks up the snake and winds him round his arm. He tells us his scientific name, "Rachidelus Brazile." The natives call him "mussurana." Until recently everybody was ignorant of his valuable qualities as a serpent eater. With his crooked stick the doctor now brings forth another snake. This time it Is a terribly venomous one, the dreaded "Lachesis lanceolatus," called the "Jaraeara" by the Brazilians. His bite kills a man or a horse In a few minutes. The doctor has dropped this dreadful reptile near the mussurana, and we stand around at a respectful distance. I confess I look behind to see if the door is open. The two snakes seem very quiet, even appear to ignore e?ich other. Dr. Brazil thinks that the mussurana, having gorged himself with snake recently, may not flght. The cannibal makes a slight movement in the direction of his venomous victim. The latter shows that he is on guard against his enemy. Suddenly, with an incredible swiftness, which proves that his apparent torpor was really an artful dodge, the good snake hurls his open jaws at the neck of his prey. He alms evidently to strike at the base of the brain. The venomous snake, equally alert dodges the blow and sinks his poison fangs In his enemy's body. It is a vain blow, for the good snake is immunized by nature. The good snake sinks his teeth In his enemy's :eck, though not at the same place he had aimed at. At the same time he coils his muscular body around the other. They roll convulsively over and over, and it seems at first that the good snake?the musaurana?is trying to strangle his adversary, the jaracara. The venomous head of the Jaracara now flaps pitifully with open Jaws. "The muBsurana is going to break the other's spine," says Dr. Brazil. "You will see, it is very curious." It is curious, even horrible. The mussurana holds the jaracara in a viselike grip with the folds of his body, and then with his Jaw twists the other's head violently round and round until the backbone breaks. Then the mussurana relaxes his hold and slowly swallows his venomous prey. The mussurana has an unfailing instinct for a venomous snake, and unless filled with food, never fails to fight. Dr. Brazil proposes by feeding, protecting, and breeding the mussurana to check the supply of venomous snakes that are a terror to life in the country.?New York American. Legend of the Phoenix.?According to onnlan* ??ritoro fho nhAAniv wqq q hlr/^ of great beauty about the size of an eagle. Only one of these birds could live at a time, but its existence covered a period of 500 or 600 years. When its life drew to a close the bird built for itself a funeral pyre of wood and aromatic spices, with its wings fanned the pyre into a flame, and therein consumed itself. Prom the ashes a worm was produced out of which another phoenix was formed, having all the vigor of youth. The first care of the new phoenix was to solemnize its parent's obsequies. For that purpose it made a ball of myrrh, frankincense, and other fragrant things. At Heliopolis, a city in lower Egypt, there was a magnificent temple dedicated to the sun. To this temple the phoenix would carry the fragrant ball and burn it on the altar of the sun as a sacrifice. The priests then examined the register and found that exactly 500 years or exactly 600 years had elapsed since that same ceremony had taken place. ,tr If you are unable to keep your troubles to yourself they will expand, it'- The first time a girl is disappointed in love she begins to map out a career.
