One quart of spoiled milk costs more

producers :
One ten-gallon can of spoiled milk
costs more than a thousand pounds of
Besides, this fact for both classes:
Milk Is mighty good human food and
Ice isn't food at all.
There is no possible argument in
favor of wasting ice, as there is no
possible argument in favor of wasting
anything. The creation of ice con
sumes coal and ammonia and other
things needed toward winning the war.
But there is the best possible argument
In favor of making the best possible
use of whatever Ice Is used and, since
milk Is probably the most important
human food, taking into consideration
all classes of people from infant to
the aged, there is every argument, not
necessarily for using more ice in con
nection with it, but for using a good
ileal more care in seeing that the milk
never gets very far from the Ice from
the moment it is drawn from the cow
to the moment it enters the human
gullet. Spare the Ice, but do not spare
It at the expense of the milk.
Much Milk Lost
Every summer multiplied thousands
of gallons of milk are lost—poured into
sink and sewer and run with the rivers
to the sea—because people are not
careful enough about bringing the bot
tle in to the refrigerator immediately
after the milkman leaves It at the door.
Milk should be kept always at a
lower temperature than 50 degrees
Fahrenheit. Assuming that the man
who milked the cow, the man who bot
tled the milk, and the man who made
the delivery all did their part, all their
effort is likely to be thrown away if
the bottle is left on a hot doorstep for
an hour, or even half an hour.
Get the milk on the Ice the minute
after the milkman leaves It at the door.
And some rather keen eyes are open
to see to It that the dairyman does his
part toward keeping the milk coo 1 as
It should he from the time it is milked
until it is delivered. With this aTU **
Is a picture of a milk cooler that the
United States department of agricul
ture recommends to—and urges upbn
—the dairyman. The coldest water
obtainable—iced water, preferably,
but. In the absence of that, water d -
rect from a cold spring or well—Is to
be used in it and the milk. Immediate
ly after It Is drawn from the cow, is
to £^ur,<l over .ho cooler. FYom
ten to fifteen gallons of cold water
oassed through the cooler for every
gallon of milk cooled. The milk flows
rtowtt over the cooler and Is brought
Jo within three degrees of the tempera
ture of the water.
Iced Water for Milk.
After that the milk should go into
a cooling tank. The taux recom
menTl by the department of agr.aU
ture is made with a ttwo-inchay« o'
, Kotween two shells of four men
concrete. Three gallons of iced water
should be used for every gallon of mi k
rend y to ship, and it should he pro
tected from heat during hauling with
blankets or felt jackets.
Every vessel that milk touches in
any way—cooler, cans, 'pails and bot
tles—should be sterilized and kept
Constantly clean and constantly
cold. That is the formula for getting
the full benefit of the milk supply.
Even brief lapses from cleanliness and
cold cause the bacterial count to mul
tiply and the milk to deteriorate.

What Cow-Testing Showed.
The average production of all dairy
cows in the United States is 100
pounds of butterfat a year, according
to estimates. The average production
of all cows in 40 cow-testing associa
tions studied by Investigations of the
United States department of agricul
ture was 247 pounds a year. Careful
tabulations of the records of the 40 as
sociations show that a production of
100 pounds of butterfat a year gave an
income of $23 over cost of feed, while
the average income over cost of feed
for all the cows in these associations
was $47, or a little more than twice
as much.
Undoubtedly the dairymen who Join
cow-testing associations are more pro
gressive than the average, and own
cows and farms that are much above
the average, hut the fine showing made
by association cows should be credit
ed, in large measure, to association
•vork. Certainly the cow-testing asso
ciations return many dollars more than
they cost. It is encouraging also to
know that the cow-testing association
records indicate that the large-produc
ing dairy cows are the least affected
by the increased cost of feeds. There
fore, every dairyman should aim to
keep them where they will continue
the economical production of human
food. Economical production can be
obtained not only through careful se
lection of dairy cattle, hut through in
telligent breeding and skillful feeding.

Scientific explanations of Fact Which
Has Puzzled Miners Who Have
Worked in Alaska.
Miners and geologists familiar with
conditions in Alaska are aware that
in many places the ground in that
country is permanently frozen, ex
cept on the surface, to a depth of
200 and even 300 feet. While this has
been popularly attributed to long
continued low temperature In winter,
the interesting theory lias recently
been advanced by a scientist that the
condition is due to far colder
weather that obtained in some pre
vious age, and that protective vegeta
tion on the surface lias kept the frost
in the ground permanently since then.
It lias been found that when moss
has been cleared away for open-cut
mining or fanning the upper level
of the grounds frost seemed gradually
to descend. If such Is the ease, it may
show that present temperatures are
not low enough to freeze the ground
to the great depths cited above.—Pop

Bridget Had Little Trouble in Explain

on Her Hubby.
Bridget was before the magistrate
upon the charge of heating her hus
band, who stood near the desk with
his head bound up in a mass of band
ages and surrounded by an odorous
cloud of iodine, indicating that he had
undergone extensive treatment at the
hospital. The magistrate called the
wife to the bar of justice.
"Now, madam," lie said, "can you

and leaning far over so she could im
press her answer upon the attentive
officer of the law, replied :
"Sture, I hit him with the poker,

I couldn't lay my hands on the broom
stick that I most generally uses."
Says Lady, Regarding Cardui, in
Givfng This Well-Known Wom
an's Tonic Credit for Her
Good Health.
Cleveland, Tenn. — Mrs. Joanna
Felker, of this place, after telling of
the help she obtained from the use of
Cardui 12 years ago, when It bnilt up
her health and strength says further:
"The next time I used It (Cardui) was
about 4 or 5 years ago. I had . . .
and was just able to drag around for
a good while, getting worse all the
time. I suffered Intense pain in the
lower abdomen and back . . . Could
hardly do my work, it was all a drag
. . . and walking was very painful
for me. I finally had to give up and
go to bed, where I stayed about a week
. . . and then turned back to Cardui,
my old friend.
After starting the Cardui, I was able
to be up in 2 or 3 days . . . The pains
were relieved soon after beginning to
take the Cardui, and when I got up,
walking was easy for me . . . Got
back vu y health and strength . . . and
in 3 weeks was able to do most of
my work . . .
It's a fine medicine, and has been
a good friend to me, and I am a friend
to It too. It's through taking Cardui
I have been well and strong and in
good health for the past 4 or 5 years
. . . I will always praise it"
Cardui should do for you, what it
has done for thousands of other wom
en. It should help you. Try Cardui.—

Hegeman & Co., of New York City, N. Y., say : "We can say for yotar

That i3 conclusive evidence that it is satisfactory to the users."
W. H. Chapman, of Montreal, Que., says: "I have sold Fletcher's C**»

its virtues. I look upon your preparation as one of the few so called
patent medicines having merit and unhesitatingly recommend it as a safa

"That's the way with ladies," com

"Prob'ly the feller was winding it up
ns fast as he could but, of course,
that didn't make no difference to the
lady. Tuther day when my wife found
me asleep on a bench in the shade of
the smokehouse she landed on me like
a catamount and threatened to fling
b'ilin' water on me, just b'cuz I hadn't
done something or nuther that she'd
told me to do. Aw. them confounded
