factors for the upul1lding and devel- o

country. Such.I an organization con- t

within a radius of a few miles. who
co-operate to hire an expert tester to o
keep accurate accounts of the e
amounts and cost of feed consumed it
by each cow in the association, the r
quantity of milk produced by each c1
and its richness in butterfat. These
statistics usually reveal the fact that s
sinlle cows are not producing enough b
to pay for their keel), \\hile others are c
highly profitable. Acting on this In- t
formnation the owner of the cows dis- b
poses of the least desirable of his t
animals and makes up his herd exclu
sively of those that produce a consid- A
erable profit. t
The membership of the association b
is placed at 20' so that the tester can at
make a complete round each month, v
devoting one work day to each tuem

on a monthly basis. It has been found
by careful experiments that the aver- p

COWS LOSE MINERAL MATTER 1
Ohio Experiment Station Emphasizes i
Value of Leguminous Roughages
in Milk Production.
Dairy cows ordinarily cannot digest
front rations of the usual charracter I
suitliielt miiiineral imatter to meet the a
ldelnllnds Imade by heavy milk produc- i
tioi. This conclusioltn has been reached :1
by nutnrition expert at the Ohio ex- h
iperimellt station a;fter two years' in
vestigaltions with nows yielding large t
quantities of milk.
lThese specialists also say that even i
when the onalltnt lpractical ratiolns are
supplemented with large amounts of t
calcium carlbonate and hone flour, the
cows still give off Inore lime than they d
can digest from their rations. To meet
this demand for heavy milk production, a
the cwVs must draw upon the mineral d
substances of their skeletons. t
Further attempt is being made, by
the use of more readily soluble lime
salts, to learn whether a cow can ab
sorb as much lime as she gives off
during heavy milk production.
The results obtained thus far em- t
phasize the value of leguminous rough
ages in milk production. Without lib- I
eral allowances of such feeds, the loss
of minerals from the bones becomes
excessive and predisposes to disorders

HAVE REGULARITY IN DAIRY
Farmer Should Not Only Milk at
Fixed Periods, but Also Feed at
Regularity In a dairy always tends
to prtoduce more milk. A man should
not only milk at fixed periods but
shoulld ailso feed his herd at about the
same time every day, and should plan
his stable work so that his cows will
be undisturbed for a considerable
time each day.
KNOWLEDGE OF BEE RAISING
To Obtain Best Results Farmer Must
Know Somethlng of Principles
of Quaeen Rearing.
No man can intelllently set him
self to the work of Inrelng the
number of his colonies, nor can he
obtain the best results in the produe
lion of homey and wax unles he ha"
some knowledge of the Dalples d
observations independently of press
ure of work on the individual farm,
the owners of dairy cows find It cheap
er and more satisfactory in many
cases to have their testing done
through the association than to un
dertake to do it themselves.
There are now nearly :r)0 cow-test
ing associations in the United States,
135 having been added during the last
year. These associations have an
aggregate membership of 8.W00 farm
ers owning approximately 150,000
cows. The cow-testing association
originated in Denmark in 18905 and the
first of the organizations in this coun
try was formed in Michigan in 115M5.
Because of the value of the associa
tions to the dairy industry of the
country the United States department
of agriculture is stimulating interest
in them and is assisting farmers in
Another and somewhat similar line
of co-operative work which is being
encouraged by the department for the
improvement of dairying and cattle
raising Is the formation of bull asso
ciltions. The function of these ur
ganizatlons is to make available, at
slight expense, tfie services of pure
bred bulls for the herds of the asso
ciated farmers. It hlis been found
that often the total value of the scrub
bulls owned by farmers is suflicient
to supply through a bull association
purebred bulls for the herds of all.
A number of "blocks" of the associa
tion members are formed and a pure
bred bull placed in each. The bulls
are shifted every two years to pre
A considerable proportion of the
nearly 22,000,000 cows in the United
States are too inferior to produce
profitably. Where the bull associa
tions have been formed the grade of
the stock has been raised appireciably.
Dairy specialists of the department
believe that these assoeltions will be
an important factor in increasing the
quality of dairy cattle throughout the

BENITA'S CHOICE i
" ,By JOSEPH SHAW. V
Benita lingered nmost provokingly
and deliberately on the road home.
There are times when home seems the
very last desirable place in the world
to go, and this was one of them. First
of all, Grandmother Rollins had told
her at least seven times that day to
count her blessings one by one. and
she'd be surprised to see what the
Lord had (lone.
Then her mother had said:
"Benita. child, what does all you?
You are bewitched. You drop every
thing you touch, and you haven't a de
cent word for anybody in the family."
Why should she have? thought lien- 4
Ita haughtily. Weren't they all
against her? Wasn't it bad enough to
have a name tacked on one like Benita
Dusenberry, coupled with an artistic
temperament, and then have a family
without any of the finer instincts at
all? Somehow she had never noticed
the lack of these finer instincts until
Jessica and her brother had come to
stop awhile at the Three Pines.
Wallace, the tall, fair musician
brother, was dreamy and aloof. He
took long, solitary walks through the
woods and roads, and came back to
improvise marvelous airs on his vio
lin. Once Benita had met him, stand
Ing enraptured, gazing at something in
"Little girl," he had said, "can you
tell me the name of this?"
"Adder's tongue." answered Benita.
She thought everybody knew what
plain, everyday adder's tongue looked
like. She told Len about it when he
came up to help Tom with the wood
cutting. Len was twenty and nearly
six feet tall. lHe looked fearfully
hearty beside Wallace.
Len had laughed and said he looked
"sort of peaked." Genius should-look
ethereal. Benita had thought. Then
the climax came. Jessica told her that
she, Benita. was the inspiration for
Wallace's latest improvisation, "The
Maid o' the Pines."
"I hope he will hbe able to capture
It and write it down. It has all the
wailing of the wind in the pines in it,
and the mystical yearnings of the un
fledged soul," she explained.
After the dishes were finished Ben
ita threw a cape around her and went
out under the three tall pines in front
of the house, to catch the mystical
yearning herself. But Len came along
from the barn, and stayed talking to
her until her mother called her in. He
reminded her that they were engaged.
Benita had put the thought from her
for several weeks.
"I guess by Easter I'll have thinks
settled so we can he married. Think
your mother can spare you by then,
"I don't know," Benita had said
vaguely. "I think eighteen is plenty
old enough to get married, and I won't
be seventeen till next month."
Now had come this final (lay. Mrs.
Brewster. Len's mother, had sent for
her to help with some quilting.
"You might as well. 'cause half of
them are for you and Len," she said
cheerfully. And all the afternoon
Renita had quilted and listened to long
accounts of this piece and that piece,
and whose dresses they had come
from hack in the annals of Len's fanm
ily. All the way up the hill road Ben
Ita told herself she would break her
engagement to Len the next day. and
find what Jessica called the path to
higher happiness. And then over the
edge of the woods. Just where the east
ern sky was darkening at nightfall she
saw a rising column of smoke, followed
Ihv a spulrt of yellow flame. It came
from the house,. she felt sure. as she
broke into a quick, light run along the
Then, just as she reached the gate
she saw Wallace. He sat on the stone
wall with his violin, quite like Nero,
Benita thought later, drawing sweet
strains fromnt his violin, and Jessica
was beside him with three suit cases
"Where is mother?" Benita ex
"Oh, the young man who cuts wood
Is fighting the fire in the kitchen," Jes
slca told her happily. "Isn't it an in
spiring sight? Wallace has a theme
already, 'Gloaming Embers.' Do you
like it, Benita?"
But Benita had fled around by the
back way. Iler mother was helping
Tom draw huckets of water from the
well and soaking blankets and old bur
lap sacks to pass up to Len on the
"L" roof. Several timnes when the
fanmes and smoke hid Len from sight.
she found herself praying for the
safety of her Len, brave and fearless.

The Laos of northern Slam have an
interesting reed instrument, which is
made up with 14 bamboo or hollow
reed pipes symetrically arranged with
a small air chamber and mouthpiece
of turned wood or Ivory. A tongued
metal olate is inserted in a slit in each
pipe, and the joints between the pipes
nad the air chamber are stopped with
wax. The tone of this instrument is
