fuare »nil Beautiful Animals Which (live 1'leasure to Queen Victoria. Quoen Victoria loves dogs, and she bas exactly 55 of them, varying from it great St. Bernard to a tiny little toy fbat would go easily into a coat pocket, tat all of high degree. The lucky ca nities are royally housed at Windsor rastle in stone kennels, with pretty tiled floors, and warmed with hot water. Each dog has a bedroom with the fresh m •M à# m v<<" IJ™ X? ffy Pilé?. «« V SPOT, THE QUEEN'S l'ET FOX TEKKIER. p?t of straw, a well ventilated dining •room and a yard of his own, and con nected with these are a number of courts, where they are often turned out to scamper and frolic. The queen is well acquainted with them all and visits them often to look after their welfare and enjoy their com panv. Around the kennels is a veranda, where she walks and admits ln*r canine friends to a familiarity not accorded to royal favorites of a superior order of be ing. They may jump and fawn upon her and receive in return many a gen tle pat and caress. Ono of the queen's prime favorites is Marco, a tawny old Spit/, said to be the finest of his kind in England. Spot, the brightest and liveliest of white fox terriers, with lemon colored markings, has long been a pet of her majesty and i:> one of the favored three flogs that constantly accompany her to Scotland and on her travels. Spot has a record of 23 rats in an hour, liny, a beautiful collie, and Gin a, a Pomera siian, usually complete this highly favor ed trio. G ilia is a little darling, weighing just 7 ! . ; pounds. Although s ho traces a proud ancestry back to the crusaders and is one of the most famous dogs in :iie world, Gina is as sweet and gentle as she is tiny. Another pet of long standing with tho queen is Jenny, a snow white don key now 20 years old. Jenny was very young wheu she first took tho queen's fancy and was sent to Windsor. After being properly trained she became a great favorite with the royal children. The queen has another donkey, Jacquot, &i : • v \ •y/ntn hûM^ v ; > V v/.iv'V- -, . t,' -v-c ; .-dfi ^ M < •W' JEN XV, A PI'UK WHITE DOXKh'Y. dark brown, with a white nose, which usually draws her chair and accom panies her on the continent. A pretty little Shetland pony, Skewbald, is about 3 feet 0 inches high. Jessie, tho queen's favorite black rid ing mare, is now 2? years old. The queen has also a most beautiful gray Arab horse, which, with full oriental trappings, was presented to her by au eastern potentate. Five Little Bröthen. five little brothers s>-t out together To journey the livelong day. In a curious carriage all mado of leather They hurried away, away. One big brother and three quite small, And one wee fellow, no size at all. The carriage was dark and none too roomy, And they could not move about. The five little brothers grew very gloomy, And the wee one began to pout Till the b iggest one whispered, "What dc ye say? Let'a leave the carriage and run away!" So out they scampered, the five together, And off and away they sped! When somebody found that carriage of leather. Oh, my, how she shook her head! Twas her little boy's shoe, as every one knows, And the fivo little brothers were five little u>. —Exchans Kun For Indoors. Boys may bo beguiled into a form of diversion tho precedent for which was Ht by no less a pt rsonago than one of England's uoblo dukes at a country I-- use. A broomstick is passed through the handles of a l.ago clothesbasket, its «ads resting upon the backs of two airs and there secured by ropes. Thus suspended the least touch causes the basket to swing. The young gentlemen are then invited to climb into it and •.here balance themselves. If they are not promptly overturned, they are fur ther requested to put on a pair of list •Uppers, a feat requiring the nicest pos xible adjustment of balance. If this, too, bo accomplished, they are then to divest themselves of the slippers, which they Bsnally try to do by short vigorous kicks, which infallibly overturn them, to the great delight of the audience.

Are Western steers Deteriorating In Sine and Quality? It is the opinion of well informed cattlemen tha^ tho steers of tho western states have deteriorated in quality with in recent years. This opinion seoms to be well founded. Various causes aro as signed. Prominent among them is tho changed method of raising calves. Ten years ago the common method in the grazing and leading agricultural states was a calf to a cow, and such a thing as milk with all of its fat taken out was unknown in tho list of calf feeds. With the advent of the creamery separator calf raising suffered. Many declared and still maintain that good calves can not be raised upon separator milk. The best experience, however, teaches that the difficulty is mainly in tho methods omployed rather than in a failure of the milk to supply the calf's needs. Fresh separator milk lacks but one element necessary to a perfect growing ration for young animals—viz, tho fat that tho separator removes. Tho prob lem then lies in getting tho milk to tho calves under uniform and as nearly nat ural conditions as possible, with some good substitute for the fat added. High priced land and changed conditions have forced this problem upon us. Believing this to boa practical and important lino of investigation, tho Iowa station has given considerable attention to tho sub ject. About a year ago six high grade | Shorthorn steer calves were taken when j about 10 days old, divided into three j lots of two each and put into an experi- j ment. Lot 1 had 3,008 pounds of separator j milk—from 15 to IS pounds per day— ! 250 pounds of hay and 58 pounds of oil- I meal and gained 275 pounds at a cost ! of 2.1 cents a pound for feed, rating j skimmilk at 15 cents per hundred and j grain at prevailing prices. Lot 2 had j 3,008 pounds of separator milk, 249 of hay and 58 pounds of oatmeal and gained 301 pounds at a cost of 1.9 cents a pound. Lot 3 had 3,008 pounds of separator milk, 253 of hay and 56 of corn meal and flaxseed, mixed at tho rate of nine to one by weight, and gained 281 pounds at a cost of 1.9 cents a pound. These calves were fed on milk supple mented by grain and hay, as detailed j above, for 100 days, after which tho ; milk was gradually taken off and the j allowance of grain and hay increased. When a year old, they averaged 700 pounds, having gained (iflO pounds in 305 days. This record shows not only good gains, but very economical growth. The feed record shows that tho calves have made gain in weight for much less than is required to make it on steers a year older. During tho first 90 days' feeding tho calves gained 857 pounds on 1,090 pounds of dry matter consumed, a pound of gain for each 1 .97 pounds of dry matter eaten. During the month of May these calves at tho ago of 8 mouths consumed an average of 11 .5 pounds of dry matter per day and made an aver age daily gain of 2.5 pounds, or the equivalent of one pound of gain in live weight to each 4.6 pounds of dry mat ter consumed. Five 2-year-old ßteera fed at the Iowa station from Jan. 4 to Dec. 1, 1893, ate an average of 25.2 pounds each of dry matter in feed per day and gained 2.44 pounds each daily, thus requiring an average of 10.4 pounds of dry matter in their feed for each pound of increase in livo weight.—C.

To a good many English people it will bo a surprise to learn that tho eau- : tiniere, who figures so picturesquely in French military pictures and on the stage of comic opera, is nearly as ex tinct as the dodo. M. Casiniir-Perier granted an audience lately to almost the j 1 st specimen of this interesting class, who is known as Mme. Veuve Bouvier. In honor of tho occasion tho goddess, fiir so she was styled in the Fifth cuiras siers when Louis Philippe was king, donned her black glazed sailor hat, liei blue tunic, with its triplo array of gleam ing buttons, and the rest of the uniform. A strange figure must this old lady have cut as she marched through the village streets to the presidential cha teau. But they order things better in France, and instead of laughing the good country folk were moved to tears, while the president received his visitor with respectful emotion.—London Pub lic Opinion. st. niary 'S academy Beer Lodge Montana.
