The Ladles' committee on the cele

the proposed program of exercises.
"I think," suggested a dimpled
blonde, "that It would he awful nice
to have some man with a good voice

At this juncture a woman with a

"Who," shouted the impassioned ora
tor, "who among us has any cause to
be happier than his neighbor on this
glorious day of the nation's birth?"
A man with his head bandaged and
both hands in a sling, arose in the
rear of the hall and exclaimed:
Clancey—Phwat's all th' thrubble In

PASTEURIZE ALL CITY MILK
Work 8hould Be Done to Deetroy All
Dleeeee Producing Bacteria—
Done by Simple Outfit
(By 1 a A. Rogers.)
Milk delivered in the cities In the
summer months frequently contains
bacteria in such large numbers that It
la not aafe food for children, especial*
ly for Infanta whose foods consist en
tirely of milk. In many cities a spe
cial milk can be secured, but this la
sometimes difficult and always in-'
solves additional expense.
Under such circumstances It Is ad
visable to pasteurise all milk con
sumed by small children. The paa-'
teurlsation should be done ln such a'
way that disease producing bacteria.:
aa well as those likely to produce In
testinal disturbances, are destroyed
without at the same time injuring the
flavor or the nutritive value of the.
milk. This may be accomplished in
the home by the use of a simple lm-.
Milk Is most conveniently pasteur-.
Ized in the bottles in which It is de
livered. To do this use a small pall|
with a perforated false bottom. An In
verted pie tin, with a few holes
punched In it, will answer this pur-t
pose. This will raise the bottles from
the bottom of the pall, thus allowing
tree circulation of water and prevent-!
tng bumping of the bottles. Punch a
hole through the cap of one of the bot
tles and Insert a thermometer. Thej
ordinary floating type of thermometer 1
Is likely to be Inaccurate, and, If pos
sible, a good thermometer, with the
scale etched on the glass, should bei
used. Set the bottles of milk In the
pall and fill the pall with water nearly!
to the level of the milk. Put the pall'
on the stove or over a gas flame and 1
heat It until the thermometer In the
milk shows not less than 150 degrees'
or more than 155 degrees Fahrenheit.
The bottles should then be removed 1
from the water and allowed to stand
from twenty to thirty mlnutea. The
temperature will fall slowly, but may
be held more uniformly by covering
the bottles with a towel. The puno
tured cap should be replaced with a
new one, or the bottle should be cov
ered with an Inverted cup.
After the milk has been held as di
rected, It should be cooled as quickly
and as much as possible by setting In
water. To avoid danger of breaking
the bottle by too sudden change of
temperature, this water should be
warm at first Replace the warm wa
ter slowly with cold water. After
cooling, milk should In all cases be
tield at the lowest available tempera
VENTILATION OF HEN HOUSE
One of Most Important Thlnga to Ob
serve In Raising Poultry—Consider
One of the most Important things to
observe in the raising of any kind of
Fowls is ventilation. Oenerally this
question does not need much consid
eration In the winter, when the
weather Is cold, but In the spring,
when the temperature begins to rise.j
the poultry raiser should see to It
that the house is properly ventilated.
However, In no case should the,
ventilations be made so the bird will 1
have to roost in the draft. This is the!
cause of many of the poultry Ills'
which cause so much havoc In the!
flock and eat up so many of the rais
er's profits. If the house has but a,
tingle wall, there usually accumu
lates considerable dampness In the
winter on the Interior In the form of
frost, and this, when It melts In.
spring, will cause trouble If It Is not;
carried away by ventilation.
The best way to remove this Is by
ventilation through the roof of th*
house. If the house Is provided with 1
a roof ventilator with a slide over
the opening, to control the ingress
and egress of the air, you have a
system of ventilation which can
hardly be Improved upon.
If this Is not provided, you should
have a small opening near the comb
of the roof, and open and close this to
suit the temperature. Generally no
opening la needed near the floor, as
the opening of the door will allow
all the carbonic acid gas to escape. If,
however, the house Is entirely air
tight, there should be placed a slide
so that It can be regulated to suit
Phosphorus, Potash and Clover.
In thirty years' fertiliser experi
ments at the Pennsylvania atatlon It
haa been found that phosphorus and
potash in a rotation containing clover
continue to maintain soli fertility.
Without the addition of organic mat
ter during thirty years, except the
roots and stubble of the crops raised,
the soil has been kept In a state of
high fertility, the land receiving an
application of six tons of manure every
other year during the thirty years.
There are several strong arguments
in favor of close planting for cabbage.
In many sections the crop Is sold by
the head, and size, though an impor
tant factor, does not always exert
much Influence In securing good
prices. The earliest cabbage is used
more extensively for slaw thaa for
any other purpose and the consumer
wants a small hard head.
Steady Growth Essential.
The steer which can usually be de
pended on to fetch the best price at
the stock yard In one whose fattening
began early, whose appetite has been
satisfied and kept on edge by a va
riety of feed stuffs,' but without over
feeding or permitting him to go oft
his feed. Growth once Interrupted sel
dom progresses as well afterward.
