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

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
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,

usually draws her chair and accom

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

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
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

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.

TO REAR CALVES.
Are Western steers Deteriorating In Sine
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
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
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
