The world Las grown better since the discovery of the egg and the growth of civilization has kept pace with the sxowth of the egs-eating naDit two contemporaneous facts, though boii tnrnrt rhrrplntion may not be capable of demonstration. But from the facts of the case we may be war ranted la concluding that a still great er consumption of hens' eggs would not hinder the coming of a more civ. llized world. Why should not the facts be correlated whn the egg con tains the vital principle of growth of the body nnd also a substance that nourishes the brain an article of food that Is responsible for both body growth and mental quickening? Why should we not eat more eggs and look for a higher civilization? James Dryden. Building Haa Twenty Stalls and Four Stock Pens, and Is Supplemented by Two Hollow Tile Silos. By WILLIAM A. RADFORD. Mr. William A. Radfora will answe Questions and rive advice FREE OF COST on all subjects pertaining to the subject of building work on the farm, for the readers of this paper. On account of nis wiae expenence.as traitor, Autnor ana Manufacturer, he is, without doubt, the highest authority on all these subjects. Address all inquiries to William A. Rad ford, No. 1S27 Prairie avenue, Chicago, 111., and only Inclose two-cent stamp for reply. During the winter months the farm er has plenty of time to shape his plans for the coming spring. He has many problems to sift over, many preparations to make, and of these none is more important than his fu ture building plans. Perhaps he did not have enough storage space last fall to handle the unusually large crop of corn and other grains, or enough housing room fohis large herd of an imals. His dairy herd has Increased in size, and he must find more room to house it. To him the dairy barn is the most important building of the group, and it behooves him to give it special attention and study. He has found during the busy sea son, when help was so scarce, that labor-saving appliances and equipment In the dairy barn would have saved many weary hours of worry and also added to his profits. These items should also take up some of his thought. If after a few months study he de cides to build a barn like the one shown here he Is not liable to make Avocado Pear Valuable. The avocado or alligator pear con tains as much nutritious fat as does ordinary cream, sometimes as high as 20 per cent. As It contains little starch or sugar, It might prove valu able In the diet of diabetics If It did not cost so much. of the cow stalPare calf and bull pens, also fitted with modern barn fixtures. Between these pens and a row of four stock pens is a cross aisle also provided with a carrier system. These stock pens have removable partitions which hIIow the farmer to increase the size at wilL Immediately to the rear of these pens are large double sliding doors. ' t The rear aisle of the barn leads into the adjoining shed which covers the manure pit. The carrier track leads to the pit. This shed is 34 feet long and 1G feet wide. Another of the important features of this building is the ventilating sys tem. This consists of foul-air flues, installed at various intervals around the barn to draw off the foul air. Mod ern ventilators on the roof provide a continual source of fresh air which is essential for healthy animals and profitable production. Lightning rods placed at intervals along the roof pro tect the barn against the fire menace. Fortified with a dairy narn of this type, a farmer can consider himself very fortunate. It will be an invalu able asset because It accomplishes two Important results, Increased milk production and increased satisfaction among the hired help, which obviously increases their efficiency. BEGGARS' GUILD IN HANKOW Mendicants Have Strong Organization and Run Affairs in a Business like Manner. In TTankow, China, even the most petty trades have their strong guild organizations, which regulate compe tition and settle disputes. The beg gars have their organizations and once on a visit to Hankow I .was for tunate enough to meet the head beg gar of that city, a very capable man who had performed wonders in organ izing and disciplining the crew who lived on Hankow's lean charity. He had apportioned the beggars between the different streets Lnd had even ai ranged the exact amount each house holder was to give to each beggar monthly. If a beggar violated any of the regulations set down to govern his conduct, complaint was made, not to the city officials but to the head beg- L 5 sL L via 1 1 Jt . 3 I. 1 o I 7 f i Is A K $ . . s v $ r.i.t' TifTLg All7" I 1 LAJ nj i 1 i I- C5TTLP. LCW TILtSfLD T . .. - v x.jx."S z ; SssJLvi any mistakes. For It embodies tne latest Ideas in barn building. Sub stantially built, efficiently designed and completely equipped with the most modern dairy barn equipment, it is a structure that will reflect credit on any up-to-date progressive farm estab lishment. liuilt with the well-known gambrel type of roof, this dairybarn is frame, set on a stout concrete foundation. By the use of the plank frame type of construction, ample storage space has been provided in the large hay mow above. One of the attractive features of this barn is the splendid silo supple ment provided in the form of two large vitrified tile silos. They are 14 feet in diameter and connected with the feed room. This feed room is splendidly arranged for the storage of feed and conveniently close to the stalls so that extra work and hauling are eliminated. Bins for grain have been built In the upper part of the feed room. Leading from this feed room Is tfie main central feed alley, on either side of which 'are the cow stalls, ten on each side. They are equipped with the most modern, sanitary and hu mane stall partitions, stanchions, mangers -and drinking cups. Every convenience that will help to Increase the productivity of the cow has been installed.- Some will argue this is tre mendously expensive. When the ul timate return is considered, this equip ment turns out to be the most eco nomical. A feed carrier track Is located over this feed alley and enables the hired man to haul the grain via carriers to each stall with great speed and ease. Similarly, in back of each stall over the litter alleys, are litter carrier tracks to carry the manure to the ad joining manure pit. Thus the old back-breaking wheelbarrow method has, been' relegated , to the growing dump pile of antiquities. At the end Kar, who, out of the wealth of his ex perience, would attend to the offender with wisdom and dispatch. Some months after my visit Hankow was captured, first by the republican forces and later by the Manchus. For a long time the city was without its usual complement of officials, Judges, policemen, etc. During this hiatus the beggars were kept in hand by the guild. The richer guilds employed men to take the place of the regular police, and the absence of political authority was little noticed, because it had never played a very important part in the lives of the residents. Christian Science Monitor. A Metaphorical Orgy. A newspaper punlished in India by native editors recently committed this really extraordinary piece of writing: "The Hindus and Mohammedans are the two eyes of India, but have long been engaged in a tug of war. On ac count of this cleavage both have suf fered, but now" the wall of separation is broken down, andthey are coming together like sugar and milk, the bit ter feelings between them haying been pulled out like a thorn. They are ad vised to give up biting each other for the future." Or else our contemporary, says Tunch, will have exhausted its stock of metaphors. Cockroaches at a Premium. A Pittsburgh physician ; is paying 5 cents each for good specimens of cockroaches. They must be alive and kicking. They will be . sent to the University of Prague, where they will undergo a close examination. Their bodies will be closely searched for the germs of cancer. A scientist of that institution has a suspicion that t'lese creatures carry the germs of Vancer on their bodies and distribute -them for human consumption as they' .stroll over . portions ' of food left unnro tected.
