Washington. D. C.?Useful rules for aising beef successfully in the South ire given in Farmers' Bulletin 580 iust issued by the United States Department of Agriculture under the ti;le of "Beef Production in the South." \fter discussing in some details the available pasture lands and grasses, the Bulletin summarizes conditions as follows: Eradicate the tick on the farm. Good pastures are essential for proftable beef production. Plant pasture grases over the whste lands. Use purebred beef bulls for gfcding jp the native stock. Always select the best heifers for Prpeding purposes. Use the coarse fodder, straws, and the stalk fields for wintering the breeding herd. Wean the calves when pastures get short. Put t^em In the cornfield and pea. fields while weaning and teach them to eat cottonseed cake or cottonseed meal. Raise and finish beef cattle on the same farm when possible. A mixture of cottonseed meal, cottonseed hulls, and alfalfa hay is a ?ood ration for fattening calves. Silage is the best roughage for fattening any class of cattle. More care Is necessary In feeding Kilves than in feeding grown cattle. At the present prices corn silape Is a cheaper and better fepd for fattening beef cattle than cottonseed hulls. Hulls and cottonseed meal make an excellent fed for a short feeding neriod, but do not produce pood pains on cattle after the third monrn. It is not entirely saMsfactorv to use corn stover as the sole roughage. When Johnson grass hay costs $10 and hulls $7 pgr ton it.is more profitable to feed the hulls alone. ' Summer feeding on the pasture is usually more profitable than winter reeding. Finishing cattle early In the summer is usually more profitable than finishing then* later in the season. Fattening steers on grass and cottonseed cake is nearly always more profitable than grazing them without reed. Thin steers make larger and cheappr daily gains than fleshy ones when put on pasture. ' Pound for nound cold-pressed cottonseed cake ic not equal to the common cottonseed cake. The use of a smalt amount of corn In addition to cottonseed cake has proven profitable for feeding steers on grass. The Bulletin, with its twenty nnpes and nine illustrations, also contains in interesting discussion of the varidus breeds most serviceable in grading up the native stock. It is sent free >n request.

Life. Found in a Glacier.

In descending a peak of the Alps just as night was falling, and a great crevasse barred the way. being unable to find the bridge over it, cut a path down to to bottom, where Harkbir stepped on an ax which had M.

How to Keep Bread Fresh. Dr. J. R. Katz of the University of Amsterdam has recently concluded some interesting experiments showing the action of heat upon the chemical , changes which result in stateness in , bread. His conclusions are that bread 1 may be kept fresh for as long a period an iu nours u sioreu in a temperature of 50 degrees C. or higher. In less heat, say from 30 to 40 degrees C., it t becomes "half stale" In a shorter time . and at ordinary temperatures, of i course, stales very rapidly. The doc- ^ tor finds, too, that an extremely, low * ; temperature preserves the freshness ' of bread for many hours, especially if : the storage place is dry. The conclusions of this eminent scientist, It may : be added, coincide with those of the i thrifty housewife who, from time immemorial, has been accustomed to "freshen up" he' bread by moistening [ it with a little water and then putting It in the oven tr a few minutes.
