CHURNS BUTTER WITH AUTO.
Major George T. Langhorne.

Major George T. Langhorne, U. S.
military attache, from Germany.

Chauffeur Makes Great Discovery
with Milk-Cooled Machine.
It has btjen discovered here that an
automobile can be used effectively as
a butter churn and that the butter can
be churned while the machine Is
speeding along' the road in the per
formance of other duty. The discov
erer is Warren Schelling, chauffeur
for Charles Spohr, a dairyman on the
Jacksonville turnpike. It Is thought
that within six mouths every dairy
farm In this section of New Jersey will
be churning butter by the auto pro
cess, and that Schelling will be hailed
throughout the countryside as a great
benefactor of womankind. Like many
other discoveries, this one was made
by accident. Truly, in this instance,
necessity was the mother of Invention.
Sche'.llng, who was driving the SpoUr
auto-milk wagon, inn out of water on
the way from the farm to Caldwell to
fehip milk and cream to market. The
machino stopped. When Schelling In
vestigated tho water cooler he dis
covered It was empty. Besides, he was
far from any water supply.
'I've read some place," he said to
himself, "that normally milk consists
of 96 per cent water, 5 per cent sub
stances which produce muscle and 9
per cent fat. That Is not as good as
cucumbers, which aie 97 per cent wa
ter, or even as good as turnips, which
aro 94.1 per cent water. However, a3
cucumbers are out of season, and the
farmers have buried their turnips, 1
guess I'll have to fall back on milk,
so here goes."
Ho lifted a can, poured In the yel-lowlsh-whlte
fluid, closed the water
cooler, put on power and soon was on
his 'way to Caldwell again. That town
almost was In sight when the machine
balked again. Schelling opened tho
water cooler and discovered he had
filled the water cooler with pure
cream, which is 100 per cent fat.
Abandoning his butter-clogged ma
chine, he walked to Caldwell for help.
Horses dragged the four-wheeled
churn to a garage, and all the way
there Schelling was trying to think
out an auto attachment for printing
and wrapping butter after the churn
ing process Is finished. Verona (N.

London. "What la home without an
Angora rabbit!" This Is the motto
which wll henceforth adorn the home
of Mr. Franklin Mott Gunther und Mr
J. H. Stabler, of the American embassy
here, as a symbol of their first expert
ence in Joint housekeeping in Loudon
Both Mr. Gunther and Mr. Stabler
recently decided that club life could
not compare with the comforts of a
"happy home," so together they took
a house at 51 Lower Belgrave street,
In one of the exclusive residential sec
tions. With the house went the furni
ture, and with the furniture went an
unexcelled matronly cook and an An
gora rabbit.- The rabbit was a great
pet, and the American dlplomntists
agreed to show It every consideration
and incidentally return It to the owner
when the lease expired.
All went well until Mr. Gunther ton
ceived the Idea of helping out the dec
orations of the dining room with some
unframed rare Japanese prints which
he treasured. One of the prints was
of a lettuce on a green background. He
returned home the other evening to
find the print goms and the rabbit dead.
The cook was heartbroken and the
house owner was notified. A cloud
hung ever the "happy home" which It
seemed nothing would dissipate.
Matters continued this way for sev
eral days until last evening, when In
the midst of a little private supper a
loud outcry was heard from the kitch
en, followed by a crash of dishes whan
the cook fell prostrate to the floor.
Near by, doing a Jaunty "bunny walk"
was an Angora rabbit, apparently look
lng for mora paintings on the wall.
Mr. Gunther said today that the cook
had recovered, but fully believes In'
the resurrection of the dead. Mr
Gunther and Mr. Stabler believe that
Angora rabbits, like cats, have nine
lives, but there Is a report at the em
bassy that one of the attaches, after
the sad fate of the first rabbit, had
succeeded In getting one more like it
than the original itself and that it
was surreptitiously smuggled into the
house last night. Anyway, the rabbit
is well and happy today and Mr
Gunther has taken his Japanese prints
from the dining room.

RATS HENCE TO HEALTH
Men and women uho Ice? their own

attacks of tho rat's hostile parasites.
Dirt and overcrowding In cities and
dwellings whore sunshine Is not per
mitted to freely flood tho Infected
places with Its germicidal rays these
are tho conditions favorable to tho
growth and propagation of the rat and
the parasites of tho rat. Although tho
outbreak of tho plaguo In Canton In
1894 caused the death of many thous
ands of natives of the poorer classce,
none ot tho American or English res
idents was affected. During the year
that elapsed, after the plaguo appeared
in San Francisco in 1907, only 150
cases developed, because of the prompt
enforcement of up-to-date sanitary
regulations. This awful visitation
which decimated 1 ondon In 1GM was
so noticeably confined to tho slums,
whero underfeeding and weakened bod
lea and overcrowding had developed
dirt and vermin, that tho dlseaso was
called tho "poor man's plaguo."
Nevertheless wo cannot rest easily,
nor can wo lcoe'p tho barriers and de
