State iish commissioner Delavan was
in town today, says the Des Moines
News. He visited the state house this
morning and interviewed the governor
on private business. Mr. Delavan is
feeling particularly rejoiced just now
over the substantial recognition his
scheme for stocking the waters of the
state has recently received from the
United states government. During the
month of January the government ap
propriated $4,000 to be used by R. S.
•Johnson, superintendent of the govern
ment trout station at Manchester, Iowa,
in co-operating with the state lish com
missioner of Iowa in his work of stock
ing the waters of the state. One of the
government cars has been put at the
disposal of Superintendent Johnson,
and by August 1, he expects to begin
operations in the territory which has
been assigned bim. He will work from
liellevue, on the Mississippi, thirty
miles above Sabula, where commission
er Delevan has established his field.
It was in 18U7 that State Fish Com
missioner Delevan secured the backing
of the state in his plan to Btock Iowa
waters with lish. During the same
year he was equipped with a car and
began bis work, which was to take from
the Mississippi bayous and overflow
streams the fish which were carried and
left there during high water season, and
which on account of the shallow waters,
would eventually be destroyed when the
cold weather came were they not taken
out and cared for in some way.
Early in the prosecution of his work,
Mr. Delevan carried a supply of flsh
and put in the mill-pond of the Maquo
keta river, at Manchester. They were
left there for several months, when
Superintendent Johnson, at the Govern
ment trout station, asked permission to
Beine a few miles above the pond and
see if any results were apparent. As a
consequence, be discovered thousands
of tiny croppies which had propagated
from the supply left by the flsh com
missioner. Superintendent Johnson
brought this fact before the govern
ment flsh inteiests, with the result that
he has now an appropriation of $4,000
with which to push the work of stock
ing and propagation along. Mr. Del
evan is very enthusiastic over his
Echeme, and thinks one of its greatest
beauties is the fact -that he is taking
from the border rivers, not the fish that
would otherwise thrive there, but those
which would eventually be destroyed.
These he says, are being saved and
given to the pMpl* of tho aUt.

Breeding and Dairying.
Breeding and dairying go hand in
hand, each largely dependent upon the
other. It is very easy for the average
dairyman to raiBe more young stock
than he needs for active dairy purposes,
and this surplus stock should bring him
How the £utch Do.
Dutch dairymen steam the clover
hay until it swells up like noodles, boij
tbeir beets, turnips, potatoes, corn, oats,
rye and other grains, and a Dutchman
would be hooted out of hiB country if he
had such scrubby things as many
American farmers have.
The introduction of pure blood and
reaching the stage in the business
where all cattle will be pure bred can
not be consummated in a short time,
but the longer we delay the important
work of building up the herds along
these lines the longer it will be before
we have desirable blood in them. All
stockmen should remember this fact
and begin today to allow notring but
pure bred bulls among their cattle.
The trade in American farm products
is growing in the China seas. Scientific
inquiry into the principles that under
lie the making of One dairy products is
preparing our people to furnish butter
in condition to be exported in airtight
packages, so that it will remain sweet
for long periods in tropical countries,
In order that markets may be opened
up in Japan, China and other countries
of the Pacific ocean, an agent is now in
that region establishing agencies to
which the department will make trial
shipment with a view to ascertaining
all the facts for the benefit of the dairy
Food as Affecting Ohurnability.
After years of close observation I am
convinced that it does make a great
difference as to the amount of cream
that will rise and the time required for
it to rise and also as to the time requir
ed to churn butter from the cream and
the amount of butter obtained if the
cows are properly fed. The butter fat
probably will be found in the skim
milk, but it does not alter the fact that
the kind of feed used has an influence
not only on the amount of milk, but in
the amount of butter obtained from any
given amount of milk when handled in
the ordinary way—sit, skimmed and
churned. I believe that a large ma
jority of the women who have given
close attention to the dairy department
of the farm will corroborate my state
ment. I woud not only advise the feed
ing of those feeds that will increase the
flow, but that will also increase the
amount of butter obtained.—A. R. Mer
ril in the Breeder's Gazette.
Creameries Without Oows. gjlll
One of the common mistakes in in
vestment of capital is the building of
creameries in general farming sections
that have few cows, the idea being that
the farmers will become dairymen as
soon as a good market for milk or cream
Is afforded them. The promoters may
know that dairying should pay in the
section or they may merely be interest
ed in selling an outfit to farmers, but
the fact iB not taken into consideration
that most men who have not had a dairy
training do not like the care of cows
and will not burden themselves with it.
Their tastes run along other lines be
cause trained that way, while the true
dairyman enjoys his work, or at least the
profit his skill in that line brings him.
He understands his business and makes
money, but the grain farmer or the gen
eral stockman neither understands nor
likes it, and the creamery usually fails
to change permanently and successfully
his natural lines of farming. National

SUPERSTITION RULESTHE RACE FROM
CRADLE TO GRAVE.
ALL ftnfitii«sM nnd Family Mutter* Di
rectly Controlled by TliUl nreniion
lnjr Influence, Which Makes Bratea
of Itn Slavlnh Devotee*.
No race In the wide world is more
controlled by superstitious notions than
tho Chinese. They enter into eveiy act
of a Chinaman's lifo, and their influ
ence is more lasting than that of his re
ligion. He cannot move baud or foot
without their agency, and from the
earliest moment of his life down to the
last detail in connection with his burial
their power and influence aro the guid
ing motives of his acts. All business
and family matters are directly con
trolled by superstitions sentiments, both
rich and poor, young and old, being
slaves to their force.
To the average Chinaman hie religion
is a mere negative factor in his mode of
life, to be followed or disregarded at'
will, but no true son of Han dares to
aot otherwise than in accordance with
the striot precepts of those spiritual
powers which directly control his life.
There are some amusing superstitions
connected with Chinese entertainments.
A dinner party is an ordeal which onoe
experienced is never forgotten. It oon
sists of from 40 to 60 distinct oourses
and oooupies the greater portion of a
day During the whole of these repasts
and notwithstanding the endless variety
of djishes served the invited guest re*
tainsjthe same plate throughout. The
explanation of this strange custom is an
old proverb, which has now become a
superstition, that "he who changes tho
plattia kills the housewife."
Chinese proverbs explain several of
the superstitious notions with regard to
women. It is considered unlucky for a
womai? to mix with the builders of a
house or other editioo during its ereo
tion, and to avoid any possibility of one
straying into the premises all approaches
are carefully guarded by watohmen,
and a fence is erected around the pro
posed building as soon as its founda
tions are laid.
Tho explanation of this is the saying,
"Women mix ill with wood, and death
lives in the house over whose founda
tionsa woman has walked." There is
a eimilar horror of the fair sex interfer
ing with any publio matter of national
interest or in any business transactions
where men are concerned. Women tie
knots," gays the Chinese proverb. "Let
them Remain at home."
No ^funeral can take placo until as
trologers and professional fortune tellers
have been oousulted. These unsorupu
ious^ftyinerB decide the plaoe of burial,
the ivent of. disagreement no
fceraont oan take place. This «o
lib 40r tho nul»b&r:af unburiedoofc
ichftto seen jafm^ the oountry
is temporarily aepositod in a templo or
kept in the house of the heir of the de
ceased. Among the poor as often as not
it is conveyed to some sheltered spot
and oovered with a mat.
When in course of time (by aid of
additional fees) the diviners oau report
that all objections to final burial are re
moved, the funeral takes place amid re
joioing and profane excesses. The mode
of propitiation generally prescribed by
astrologers is the purchase of some stone
or piece of iron, to which an elaborate
ritual of prayer and sacrifice is made,
or, if the olient is wealthy, the building
of a pagoda iu suggested, in connection
with whioh the mercenary fortune teller
doubtless reaps a large commission.
The last species .of superstition to
which we will oail attention forces us
to place Ohina among the half civilized
and brutal nations. One of these super
stitions is that the soul of a dying per
son takes possession of the bed aud room
in which the invalid is lying. To obvi
ate such a curse as this the relatives of
the dying person, as soon as they per
ceive his end approaohiug, forcibly re
move, him from his bed and place hitn
almost naked upon a board. If by chance
a man should expiro in his bed, it, to
gether with all the furniture in the
room, must be burned and many atone
ments offered before the room is consid
ered fit for habitation again.
Many strange and inhuman ideas are
associated with the illness and death of
children. If a child sickens and dies be
fore the age of 12 years, its last mo
ments aro hastened by the horrible
cruelty of its parents. So long as hope
is possible the parents do their utmost
to save their child, .but as soon as the
doctors abandon hope the child is strip
ped naked and placed against the outer
door of the house. When tho end has
ooine, the corpse is thrown out into the
street to be pioked up by the passing
The reason for this brutality is thiB:
If a family loses a child before it has
grown to maturity, its parents refuse to
regard it as their offspring, but rather
as some evil spirit who has worked its
way into their home iu order to bring
ruin and misfortune upon it and them.

Tho time is near at hand when
you should begin seeding. The
wheat question has not received
the attention the past few years
that it should. There is a large
demand for good wheat the year
round, and a number of farmers
were fortunate in sowing a few
acres of wheat last season, with a
good yield, which brought them a
snug sum of money.
It pays to sow wheat and there
is no reason why you cannot sow
a few bushels and be well paid for
it. We are quite anxious to have
lots of wheat sown this year, and
have therefore made arrange
ments for a car of choice spring
seed wheat, which we will let go
at cost in order to further the in
terest in the matter. Think this
over and, if possible, put a few
acres into wheat.
