I am the wife of a United States ar my officer and have lived a good deal of my time on the Pacific slope, where the only servants to be bad are Chi nese. There is no doubt but the Chi nese make very good servants if they wish to be good, but If they ujfer to be bad they can excel at that too. I married in the infantry and went out with my husband to a station where the Chinese were as thick as blackberries. I had the pride natural to a bride of showing how well I could keep house and appreciated the importance of winning the confidence of my servants, or, rather, at that time my servant, for the wife of a second lieutenant neither she nor he: husband having anything but his pay is not supposed to keep more than one. Mv first Chinese servant was Ti Wang. Ti was the smoothest, softest tongued rascal I ever met. He had enough duplicity in him for an eight eenth century European diplomat. To him words were indeed inteuded to conceal ideas. "You velly young wife," he said to me. "You want velly good Chinaman for cook. Muchy Chinamen velly bad. Ti feel solly for Melican lady. Ti ho good cook." All this was spoken with a look of commiseration for a young thing like myself that to one familiar wlththe man from the Flowery Kingdom would have boded no good. I did not doubt that my servant would be a great comfort to me. It was not long be fore his true inwardness showed it self. He first made an excuse of hav ing a sick brother who couldn't washy washy to provide for to wheedle me out of a month's wages in advance. Then he surreptitiously removed un der his capacious coat and ample sleeves all the staple kitchen provi sions I had bought to last several months. Tea, coffee, sugar and spices disappeared like magic. Then, having received an offer of better wages than I was giving him, he took himself off without so much as saying he was going. My next servant was Charlie Li. Why so many Chinese are called Char He I don't know, though Li is an ap propriate name for them. Charlie was recommended by the major's wife, who had him in her kitchen for awhile when her regular servant was ill. She told me she would miner have Charlie than the other. I had no fault to find with Charlie except that he stayed with me but a day. He didn't stay long enough to ask for any wages, and since experience had taught me not to pay Chinamen in ad vance he didn't get any. After this servants were passing through my kitchen, none staying with me more than a week. In vain I re fused to engage one unless he would agree to stay a month. Something must be scaring them away. I didn't see how they could see anything in a young woman of nineteen to frighten them, and I was the only person with whom they came in contact. One of them, who was about to depart after three days of service, I asked why ha left. "You get Melican cook. Chinaman not velly good in this house." "Why not?" "Donno. Chinaman won't stay here." "Why do you go so soon after com ing?' "I am velly well." He did not seem to care whether I believed him or not. Indeed, he knew he was lying, and I knew it too. How ever, I had had such bad luck with Chinese servants and there were no others to be had that I made up my mind to do my own cooking for awhile. Meanwhile my husband, who had been making inquiries for me as to servants from brother officers' wives, began to bo considerably vexed that I could not keep any of them. There was uo such loss of servants among those who sent me mine, and it ap peared that I must either be too ex acting or have a frightful temper or some other blemish that prevented a servant from working for me, where as the truth was that after the earlier ones left I simply gave up everything to those who came later, granting all requests and opposing them in noth ing. I didn't even dare criticise the cooking of a single dish. The first tiff I had with my husband was when he ventured to remark that perhaps I didn't give them quite free rein enough. I resented the imputation with a fervor that sent him off to the officers' club and prevented his ever making any such suggestion in future. One day I put the tin bread box out In the sun, turning it up on its side and exposing the bottom. I was sur prised to see Ghincse characters on it. I wondered what they meant When a woman begins to wonder what is the meaning of anything it Is preparatory to making plans to find out. I called the servant of my next door neighbor, who was beating a rug, to come over Jtnd translate the characters. He did so as follows: "This Is a very bad woman. She doesn't pay the servants' wages and gives no extras." That smooth tongued villain Ti Wang, who had pitied my youth and Inexperience and had robbed me be side, had chalked a notice on the bread box warning all other servants against me. I- waited patiently till my husband came ik from his duties and, showing him thecbaracters on the bot tom of the box, banded him a transla tion. A Dreadful Sight to H. J. Barnum, of Freeville, N.

Cut out those that do not make a profit and keep the best. At least one-third of the cows in Missouri are unprofitable. Weigh the milk of each cow regularly and have it tested monthly, if possible, by the Bab cock test. Use only a pure bred bull of a strictly dairy breed and from the kind of cow you wish to raise. Raise the heifer calves from the best cows with great care. Feed your cows silage, clover, cowpeas or alfalfa hay and oue pound grain to three pounds milk produced. RAISING HOTHOUSE LAMBS. Interesting Experience of a Shepherd With Cross Bred Sheep. For our first venture In breeding hot house lambs we bought ten Dorset ewes and a buck, writes a Maine farm er in the New England Homestead. As these sheep were quite costly, wo sup plemented them with a flock of Shrop shire ewes, crossing these with tho Dorset buck and reserving the ewe lambs for breeders, continuing this practice until we had a flock of pure bred and high grade sheep sufficient for our wants. We disposed of all the Shropshire ewes and the half bloods, as they were not sure enough early breeders. To show that it was not all smooth sailing we will mention that nine of the Dorset ewes of our first flock, from one cause or another, sometimes seemingly from no cause at all, died natural deaths. Tlio tenth one lived to be old and was sold with a nice lamb by her side. In the light of subse quent events we concluded she was a grade, although she came to us with registry papers apparently all correct, but some of her descendants in the &K2SaS?33 ?jts2i2'nL : Tor the last century the sheep of Suasex have been justly famed for their ability as mutton producers. The short herbage of the chalk hills evolved a hardy, muscular animal that responded so kindly to artifi cial encouragement that theirs liaa been the premier place la i'niished competition. The breed did llself i full JuGtlce in last ytat's shotvs. ino pure urea souinaown nerewnn illustrated, shows the rugged, full meated type of sheep for which the breed is noted. third generation failed to develop horns. Be that as it may, she was the best and most profitable of the Dor Eets we bought. The same holds true of the sheep we bred ourselves. The ewes descending from the Shropshire stock, after hav ing been continually crossed with Dor set bucks until they carried but a Bmall fraction of Shropshire blood, were hardier than the pure Dorset stock, bred just as early, and were as good milkers. This last is high praise, for Dorset ewes are great producers of milk. The Dorset Iambs are a bit too long in the legs and not as plump" In the body as is desirable, so we have dis carded Dorset rams and substituted Southdown bucks, giving lambs of Ideal form combined with the great milking qualities of the Dorset ewes. Windows In Horse Stable. The windows in a horse stable should be so arranged that the horses are not required to stand for hours with the full glare of the sunlight in their eyes. Preferably they should be in the south wall, but not if the stable has been so arranged that a row of stalls faces directly on the south wall. In laying out a stable it is well to keep this fact in mind and so plan the ar rangement of stalls that the horses will stand tall to or side to the south. Then that wall may carry 'enough win dows to light practically the entire building. It is best that light entering a stable should fall on the horses from the rear. Cows on Grass. During no time of the year is a va riety of feed so important as spring. It is true that grass Is nature's own food, but it Is too great a contrast from the dry feed fed during the win ter. Dry feeds should be continued through May and June to make changes gradual. Fat Content of Milk. The percentage of fat in the cow's milk is determined by two things first, the breed and, second, the indi viduality. The milk flow may be stim ulated by feed, but the fat content cannot be affected under normal conditions. No Need To Stop Work. 'When your dpctor orders you to, stop work, it staggers you.
