PURITAN FATHERS No Christmas Festivities or Gifts for Children in Massa chusetts in Early Days DAY JUST LIKE ANY OTHER Condition Somewhat Better for Young sters in New Amsterdam —Holiday Observance Toyless in the Colo nies in Seventeenth Century Tn the early days of this country's history Christinas festivities were not generally observed and poor <>!d “San ta Claus," and all ho represents, had hard time of It. !?■ Massachusetts the observation of Christmas was utterly denounced as H’ evil, ungodly and pernicious cus f''m ami any child daring to think of Rs much as a plum pudding on that r(. v wm(d make herself liable to re proof t> tiie authorities. All along the s-fuii and rock-hound coast, Ger aldine Ames writes in the Churchman, the only Christmas trees in the days • f the f'urifan domination were those that nature had planted there and had telorned with fleecy snow. The fires mi rued brightly on the open hearths, hut as far as tiie children knew Christmas was Just like any other day In tiie calendar. Even after the Pur itan reaction against the forms and customs of tin* old church had spent itself to some extent tiie children of Ike seventeenth century still expected no gif ts jo honor of the birth of Christ. lo N’ew Amsterdam the outlook was a little better for the children. The Hollanders had brought with them I heir St. Nicholas, ami his birthday was celebrated joyously by young and old Just before Christmas, >nt Christ mas was also observed. Of course, they had not many real toys as we know them today, hut in tiie shoe, that the little Hollanders set by the fireplace Iti the shining kitchen, which was also the living room, were home made gifts. Many of these were of a useful character, such as hand-knit caps and mittens, hut now and then a skillful Hollander would carve a model of a boat such as that wide!, had brought them to New Amsterdam, or a miniature chest of drawers, and one can fancy tin' recipients showing these with pride to the wondering little Indian hoys and girls when they iame to he on terms of sufficient am ity with them for such conferences. lii Virginia, where the church of Filmland was strong and its adherents stomlfastly observed the holidays as In tin* homo country, there was always more of the Christmas spirit and abun dant cheer and merrymaking than elsewhere at this season. Here the Vule toe held its place and here were the games and the feasting that made It indeed the merry season of the year. I.ater when New Amsterdam became New York and the English came in to power the character of the Christ mas holiday was changed somewhat, although the 1 hitch Influence contin ued dominant for many years. Throughout the colonies in the ev •nfeenth and eighteenth centuries rovs were an almost unknown factor, hut wherever Christmas observations Mere not frowned upon by religion, feasting and good cheer were abun dant, and bond and free, rich and poor, old and young, shared in the games, abundant food and genial atmosphere. In the eighteenth century toys began to make their appearance in the col onies. Some of them were brought from over seas and had the enchant ing quality of novelty. Little girls u ho had helped to mother their young er brothers and sisters were delighted with dolls that were till their own, to fondle and coddle. A toy was a thing to he cherished in those days. Home of the gifts were of real in trinsic value, for the shipping and trading were growing to he important factors in the colonies, and men brought treasures of all kinds from the fur East to the seaports, whence they were distributed to other parts tf the colonies. The war for indepen dence Interrupted this and the chil dren shared in the self-sacrifices and deprivations that were undergone by nil the families living in the colonies at that time. When soldiers were starving at Valley Forge there was tittle thought in their homes of Christ mas merrymakings and little out of which to provide it. After the war there were still lean years but by the opening of the nine teenth century peace and plenty united upon the land and Santa Claus found it safe to resume ills visits and aiuke his distributions, GET BUSY.

"What a charming place!” he said enthusiastically, to Agues’ proud par ents. “Does it go as far as those woods over there?” "It does,” remarked the somewhat unsympathetic father. "Ah.” said Tom, still cheerily; “and to that old stone wall over there, sir?” "It does.” came the gruff answer; “anti it goes as far as the river on the south, and to tiie main road on tiie nort h.” "Beautiful!” put in Tom. “Yes." went on the old man. “hut It doesn’t go with Agnes!” Then Tom faded peacefully from view.

(Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) How a bull association transformed a community with 18 nondescript bulls into a community with one-third that number of good purebred sires from high producing ancestors is ex plained by an extension worker of the dairy division. When a bull association was started in a community in Webster county, Missouri, the best bull in the com munity became a standard for the bulls selected by the bull association. The Type of Animal That Is Gaining Popularity Because of the "Better Sire, Better Stock" Campaign. All of the new* bulls, then, are as good or better than the best bull that was In the community before. Before the bull association w’as or ganized the 18 bulls in the commun ity were valuod at $1,355, an average of $75.28. One or two of these bulls w’ere purebreds and the rest were largely grades and scrubs of mixed dairy and beef breeding. After the association was formed these nonde scripts were disposed of and six pure bred dairy bulls were purchased at a total cost of $1,657. an average of $276 an animal. The more efficient utilization of the association bulls resulting from or ganization of the association made it possible for the six purebred bulls to take the place of the IS bulls formerly maintained. The reduction in the number of bulls also resulted in a cor responding reduction in the cost of maintenance to be charged to each cow. The improvement in the quality of the bulls seemed to have a marked ef fect on the class of cows kept in the herds, and in less than one year after the association was formed the num ber of purebred females in the com munity increased from two in July, 1018, to 42 the following June. The large amount of good which resulted from the transformation of a scrub bull community into a community of good purebred sires is an agricultural improvement hard to parallel, espe cially when it is considered that this change was made with an expendi ture of only $lO more per farmer, and that the use of good sires will result in a lasting improvement to dairy cat tle of the community, FAVOR RAISING FALL CALVES Expert of South Dakota College Gives Reasons Why Farmers Will Find It Profitable. Several reasons why farmers find it more profitable to raise fall calves are given as follows by Prof. C. Larson of South Dakota State college: A cow that freshens in the fall will produce about 20 per cent more milk during the year than one that calves in the spring. Dairy products bring the farmer about a third mofe money in winter than in spring. Winter dairying allows of more and cheaper labor after the field work is done. Winter dairying avoids flies that cut down the milk flow and bother the milk-fed calves. Calves dropped in the fall will do well under good winter care and when spring arrives they are ready for pas ture with the other young cattle. Avoid mating too early in the fall. Wait until December and January. § DAIRY NOTES | Nail up that loose board on the cow stable. * ♦ • Pumpkins make a good feed for dairy cows. * • • Before milking wash the cow’s ud ders and flanks and wipe with a damp cloth. • • • Keep the milk tightly covered at all times, and protect utensils from flies and dust * • * It is equally important that the cow bam be kept clean and an abundance of good bedding thrown around at all times. ♦ * * In dairying labor may be utilized at a more uniform rate throughout the year than in nearly any other farm business. * * • For the complete development of a calf it is necessary that Its mother he properly fed and cared for before the calf is born. ♦ * ♦ The greatest source of milk-souring bacteria is to be found in the milk utensils. ♦ ♦ ♦ Much labor can be eliminated in the dairy barn by using modern steel stalls and stanchions. ♦ * • A dyy. clean calf stall seems to b€ a well-nigh infallible indication of a good calf raiser. • * • It Is well known that a dairy cow must be well fed in order to product the maximum flow of milk.
