Utility of tin additional judge in the Fourth Judicial district, to the layman as well as the lawyer, was clearly demonstrated last week. Judge Webster, who. heretofore, had been overwhelmed with work, came to Hamilton on Monday of last week and tiled a decree m the Smith creek water case which had been pending for about two years, the lav 's delay, mean while, seriously handicapping the litigants: He then took up the Blod gett creek water suit, heard the testimony and tiled his findings of fact aud conclusions of law all in two days. The difference between two years and two days is considerable. A natural route, via Skalkaho and Warm Springs creeks, invites the attention of capitalists interested in railway enterprises. A trolly line 75 miles in length linking Hamilton, Phihpsburg, Anaconda aud Butt 13 is perfectly feasible and, manifestly, must prove p olitable. Great tracts of timber, big undeveloped mining districts, with water power immed iately available, line the way Butte, with its hundred thousand people, the best paid people on earth, aud the great, fruitful Bitter Boot valley that might easily feed them, brought within two or throe hours ride, should furnish traffic enough to keep a double tracked tiollcv going some!

A Pennsylvania Dairyman's Profitable Method of Marketing Milk. A progressive Pennsylvania dairy man recently told in the National Stockman and Farmer how he disposed of bis milk at a good profit as follows: Arrangements were made to place the merits of onr milk before the peo ple In a nice descriptive circular. A mailing card for a request to have our man deliver a sample bottle was put into each circular, and these circulars were put into every house» in town. The circulars covered the following points: First.—This milk is produced from a tested herd absolutely free from tu berculosis. Second.—A certificate from a local veterinarian, who tested the herd; also a statement from him in regard to the sanitary' conditions of the barn, etc. Third.—An explanation showing the importance of clean milk from healthy cows to babies and invalids. Fourth.—Instructions lo consumers how to take care of milk after it was delivered to them and explaining the danger of allowing milk to become con taminated. A letter inclosing the circular was also sent to each one of the physicians Vu the town. Results of the Plan. Allhough we did not have a single customer before we started, when we were ready to deliver we had orders for 150 quarts daily, and at the end of thirty days we had sale for all wê had at that time, 200 quarts daily. We have received for our milk 5 cents per quart, delivered at the station. This milk was retailed at 8 cents a quart, 2 cents higher than the average price for milk. In a town where ordinary milk sells for 8 cents, 10 cents can easily be pro cured for milk of this quality,. In oth er words, in order to market milk at a profit the fanner must first arrange for the protection of milk cleaner and better than the average and, second, to carry on an advertising campaign to educate people to appreciate gjood milk and to believe in his particular product. A proper advertising campaign like the above can be carried out anywhere for a sum not to exceed 850. From a Dairyman's Notebook. Try carding and brushing these days and note whether the cows enjoy it. Note whether the grain is relished better if a pinch of sail is added. Salt on inferior hay will make it far more palatable. This is the time when "grub In back" begins to appear. Squeeze 'em out. If roughage is getting short or of very poor quality and grain is fed, feed more liberally of commuai than would otherwise lie done. It sometimes occurs a cow's feet are In poor condition.

A New Jersey grower who finds It profitable to pot his strawberry plants explains In Rural New Yorker the method used as follows: I have found that about the only objection to using potted plants is the price they will cost to buy or the ex pense of potting them ourselves. Here Is an obstacle easily remedied. To be j;ln with, every market gardener or, in fact, any one wlijo is thinking of engag ing in the growing of strawberries should have at least 5,000 two inch pots. These can be had at a trilling cost and will last for years. When the knack of potting the plants is once ac quired it will be readily understood that the only difference in the expense of the potted system and the usual way of setting them Is the difference in time It will take in digging and trim ming the plants as compared to potting them. When a lot of plants are wanted for the new bed, all that it is necessary to do is to till these small pots with POTTED STRAWBERRY PLANT. soil the same as where the plants are growing, l'luuge or plant them just to the surface level, place rooted run ners in the pots as other plants are potted, leaving the runner attached to the old plant, and the unrooted runner may be placed on the soil In the little pot, laying a small stone or clod on it to keep it in place. The young runners so treated will make nice plants in two or three weeks. When the little pots are well filled with roots, they are taken up and placed close together in a frame, where they can be watered free ly. After remaining in the frame for a few days they are lu good condition to be planted where they are to fruit. It should be remembered, however, that if the plants are left in the pots too long they will become pot bound. They are then not so good as If set about the time the pot is well fillfcd with the young roots. This condition of the plants will not affect them in the frame as quickly as if left attached to the old plant in the bed. When the plants are in the proper condition for planting, the ground should be harrowed several times and made perfectly level by using a level ing board, for no soil is ever too firm for the roots of the strawberry to pene trate if moist and cool below the sur face. The plants may be set either by line or tho rows can be marked out the desired width. After the plants have been thoroughly watered they are knocked out of the pots, carried to the field and placed on the row about the distance they are to be planted. A skillful workman can set the plants as fast as they can be brought to him and with little or no risk. The plants will scarcely cease growing. 1 An Orchard Map. Several years alter planting an or chard It is not unlikely that the farm er, unless he has taken proper precau tions, will be unable to distinguish one variety from another, except, of course, where there is a wide difference in the habits of growth and color of hark of the trees. And it is well that the fruit grower should know the name of ev ery tree in his orchard. Several meth ods are employed for this purpose. Many orchardists use labels, but they fade out, and if attached by string are often lost, while wire fastenings work into the wood. A convenient plan is to make out a rough map of the orchard with a good paper and ink. showing the location of all varieties, with age, date of planting, name of nursery and other useful notes, suggests Farm Journal. If such a map is kept with the same care as other valuable pa pers, It will prove a great help. Hotbeds In Early Spring. In the weather of early spring, when the sun Is getting high, the middle of the day will be very warm and the nights still cold and frosty. It is then that tlie beginner often makes the mis take of leaving the sashes of his hot bed open late in the afternoon, and the beds cool off more than is desira ble. At this season hut little ventila tion Is necessary, and frames aud greenhouses should be shut up quite early in the afternoon and the covering put on to retain the heat as soon as tlie 6un is low.—Green. Good Drainage For Alfalfa. Alfalfa Is adapted to a wide range of soil provided the subsoil is open and porous and well supplied with lime. The most favorable soil, however, is a deep loam, preferably sandy in nature, overlying a not too compact subsoil. Good drainage is highly essential, and on soils overlying heavy clay or hard pan subsoils great care must be taken to provide free escape for surface wa ter. The alfalfa plant will soon die where water stands for a few days.— George A. Billings, New Jersey. I I I 1 Beethoven's Oddities. Beethoven used the snuffers for a toothpick. It was one of his peculiar ities that he never allowed his servant to enter his study. He Insisted that this room should remain exactly as he left it, no matter how deeply the dust lay on the precious musical manu scripts. He seldom looked in the glass when he tied his stock. Half the time he forgot to brush his hair. Every morning he carefully counted out sev enteen beans from the coffee canister. These served for his breakfast. When he composed, he would pour cold wa ter over his hands, and often people below him would complain of the wa ter that soaked through his floor. DO NOT NEGLECT THE CHILDREN. At this season of the year the first unnatural looseness of a child's bowels should have immmediate attention. The best thing that can be given is Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrobea Remedy followed by castor Ml as directed with each bottle of the remedy.
