No matter how well milk has been handled up to the time it is delivered to the consumer, It cannot be expected to keep welMf It is carelessly treated thereafter. It should be poured Into pitcher, pan, or other vessel—freshly scalded to remove any bacteria or mold spores—and kept in a cool, clean plage free from dirt, files, etc. New milk should never be mixed with old, unless it Is used at once, as the bac teria in the old milk will, of course, be added also, and the mixed milk will not keep as well as the fresh milk alone. Bacteria are thickest where there Is dirt and decay, and milk should there fore be stored only in clean, sweet places. It Is safer to keep it covered, to exclude not only dirt and bacteria, but also the flavors and odors which It so easily absorbs. If kept at a temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit or less, good milk should remain sweet for 12 hours at least, after It reaches the consumer, and ordinarily for 24 hours or more, dairy specialists of the United States department of agricul ture say. Sometimes In very hot weath er housekeepers complain that in spite of all precautions it soürs quickly, even in the ice box. This Is often due to tfie fact that the air of the ice box, although it seems cold in contrast with the heat outside, is really not cold enough to cheek the growth of the bao terla; if a thermometer placed Inside registers more than 50 degrees Fah renheit, the fault is almost surely in the temperature of the Ice box, and not in the milk. In large cities, where most of the milk comes by morning trains from a considerable distance. It Is often im Sterilization Is the Efficient Method of Preparing Milk Cans for the Re ception of Sanitary Milk. possible to deliver fresh morning's milk In time for breakfast, and that milked the morning before must, be given to patrons who Insist on an early delivery. They would get their milk from 12 to 18 hours fresher if they would take It in the afternoon instead. AIR-TIGHT WALL IS NEEDED In Building a Silo Protection Must Be Provided for Silage to Prevent Molding. It makes little difference what ma terial Is used in building a silo as long as the silo Is practically air tight all around the walls and bottom. Wood, cement, tile, iron, and plaster silos have been used with success. Protec tion against mold is largely dependent upon the exclusion of air, and for this purpose an air-tight wall is required and the ensiled material should be properly packed In the silo. Silage will keep equally well In any one of the silos mentioned provided the walls are properly made, are air and moisture tight, and the material is correctly en siled. REINFORCING INSIDE OF SILO Where High Winds Prevail It Is Good Insurance to Place Wood Hoops at Top and Bottom. Where high winds prevail It is good Insurance to reinforce the Inside of a stave silo with wood hoops at the top and bottom. Pieces of thin, narrow lumber, usually weather boarding, are nailed to the staves so as to form a hoop of 4 to 5 thicknesses of the weather-boarding, care being exercised to break Joints. The strips are 8x10 feet long and they may be soaked In water so as to bend easier. CAPACITY OF COW'S STOMACH Not Enough Nutrition in Pasture Grass to Make Maximum Pro^ duction of Milk. The bulky nature of pasture grass places a positive limit upon the capaci ty of tl:« cow to take feed. In other words, the cow's stomach cannot con tain grass enough to supply thé re quired nutrients for maximum milk production ; therefore a part of the ra tion should be of a more concentrated nature. Good pasture contains an ibundant supply of succulent palatable and nutritious grasses. PRODUCE MORE PER CAPITA Writer Notes Favorable Sign In In« dustrial World, and Makes Some Interesting Comment. Recent reports to the federal re« serve board made note of one high ly favorable symptom In the indus trial world. Production per man, shows a considerable Increase. In other words, labor Is giving more for its money. There has been a great deal to criticize In this respect since the reaction from the strain of the war set in. There has been much loaf ing on the job, and it has almost seemed at times as If the rule was getting to be to do the least possible work for the most possible money. The cost of living never can be brought down under that rule, nor can the un rest of the individual worker who acts on that principle ever be allayed. We have noticed many times in the course of our own limited experience in industry that the men who promote discord and disloyalty and hinder pro duction around a plant are never those who do their level best to earn the money they are receiving, and, if pos sible, an increase In pay. And we have observed, further, that the fo menters of dissatisfaction seldom prosper so well or find so much joy in life as those who cheerfully do all that is expected of them, or more. To put the matter on its lowest ba sis, faithful work, like honesty, Is the best policy. Work is the paramount issue before the country today, for its unanimous election would dispose in short order most of the hardships and abuses we complain so bitterly about.—Ohio State Journal. Increase In Child Labor. Four thousand more children are working in Chicago today than a year ago, according to Clyde A. Brown, act ing director of the city vocational guidance bureau. The Increase in chilij labor Is said to be general in the middle West, but exceptions are noted in Missouri, Kan sas and North Dakota. Necessity of the child helping the family meet the high cost of living, the pulling power of higher wages and scarcity of adult labor, together with the discovery by employers that wom en and children could take the place of men, were cited by Mr. Brown among reasons for a similar Increase In child labor In other parts of the United States. Child labor In Illinois, which reached its height during the war, when a lib eral Interpretation of the child labor law was permitted for the sake of production, has not receded as It should, according to Barney Cohen, director of the state department of labor. "Many employers insist upon em ploying children, when the work should be for older workers," Mr. Co hen said, commenting on the twenty seventh annual report of the chief fac tory inspector. Issue on Quitting Time. To determine the exact time when a miner leaves the employ of a coal company after serving a quit notice, testimony Is being taken by the Penn sylvania compensation referee in the suit of Mrs. Apollonio Osika against the Hudson Coal company. > Compensation for Mrs. Osika Is asked 00 the ground that her husband was killed as he was taking his tools out of the Pine Ridge mine prepara tory to leaving the company's employ. The coal company contends the work er had completed his last work a few minutes before the accident, and that in serving his quit notice he no longer could be classed as a company em ployee. Because of the rival claims the referee must determine the ex act minute when the miner ceased to be employed and on the decision sim ilar cases that develop in the future will be based. LABOR PLACES FUNDS IN NON-PARTISAN BANK. The Chicago Federation of Labor has voted to withdraw Its funds, from local banks and de posit them with the % Non-Part lsan league bank in Bismarck, N. D., as a means of helping finance the wheat harvest. The resolution calling for removal of the federation's funds recom mended that all locals of the American Federation of Labor take similar action. Printers' Union Purchases Bonds, Officials of the International Typo graphical union announced that, In conformance with resolutions adopted at the recent state convention in Al bany, "Big Six" has purchased $400, 000 worth of fourth Liberty bonds as part of its policy to encourage the purchase of government securities as "the safest and most- convenient method of investment." France Expels British Laborites. William Adamson, labor member of the British parliament, and Harry Gosling, leader of the English Trans port Workers, representing the Brit ish council of action of the triple al liance of labor, were requested to leave France, failing which they were expelled.

FARM ANIMALS SIMPLE FORM OF ORGANIZING No Capital Is Required, Farmers of •'immunity Meeting and Se lecting Officers. The «impie form of organization that suffices for co-operative live-stock shipping associations Is one of their leading features. In the first place, practically no capital Is required, since payment Is not made to mem bers for stock, shipped until the re turns are received from the market To organize, it Is necessary only that the farmers of a community meet to gether, adopt a simple constitution and by-laws, and elect officers and a board of directors, who in turn appoint a manager. Although In order to transact busi ness it is not necessary for an associa tion of this nature to incorporate un der the state laws, tt is advisable to do so as a protection to the members. If not Incorporated, the organization, as such, can not sue Qr be sued, and to case of the loss of stock from rail road wrecks or other cause the man ager could not enforce claims for the association, but each shipper would be compelled to present claims for his own losses. The cost of incorporating is «jmparatively small—usually not more than $10. The United States department of agriculture will furnish, on request, the essentials of a model constitution and by-laws. ENTIRE ABSENCE OF SCRUBS Ohio Breeder, Recently Enrolled for "Better Sires" Keeps Nothing But Purebreds. With the gradually Increasing enroll ment in the "Better Sires" movement, the United States department of ag riculture notes unusual interest In reg istration of sires. Many enrollment blanks on which breeding stock is re ported contain the name and registry number of stock, although such in formation is not specifically asked for. A recent enrollment from a live stock Ah Ohio Purebred Shorthorn Bull. owner In Athens county, Ohio, shows that all his sires— a Shorthorn bull, a Berkshire boar, and a Delaine ram— were registered stock of good quality. In addition he kept a registered collie dog. Furthermore, his Rhode Island Red poultry were all standard-bred. The result of using purebred sires Is shown by the entire absence of scrubs on the farm. AH the female animals listed were grades, cross breds or pure breds. FORAGE SUPERIOR FOR HOGS Extremely High Prices Make It Profit able to Substitute Grass Crops for Grain. With the present extremely high prices of grain It Is profitable to sub stitute, as far as possible, forage crops for grain feeds. A saving of 15 to 25 per cent of the total amount of grain and supplements may be ex pected through the use of forage. Pas ture crops, when combined with grain feeds, will produce the cheapest ra tions for both breeding and fattening hogs, and the cost of gains will range from one-sixth to one-fourth cheaper than when the grain is fed In a dry lot. It may be possible. In some cases, with an abundance of good forage, to obtain fairly satisfactory gains for a time on such forage alone, but the greatest returns have been obtained when grain was fed in addition to the forage at the rate of two to three per cent of the weight of the hogs per day. SILAGE LACKING IN PROTEIN When Fed Without Some Supplement ary Feed Less Satisfactory Re sults Are Obtained. Silage Is lacking In protein and should be supplemented by some con centrate high In protein. When fed without this supplementary feed, less satisfactory results can be expected than when It is properly supplemented The most economical and most satis factory proportion In which to feed cottonseed meal to fattening cattle re ceiving silage Is approximately 2.1 pounds daily a thousand pounds ot lire weight DR THACHERS LIVER AN0 BIPOD SYRUP The Idea.

As the old lady strolled on the cliffs near a' seaside town she came across a lad dressed in the well-known scouts' rig. "What do they teach you in the scouts?" she asked him, with a beam ing smile. "To be manly citizens, and true to king and country," replied the lad promptly. "And what are you going to be when you grow up, my little man?" went on his self-appointed examiner. "A soldier, to fight for the king," was the patriotic reply. "Very brave," • applauded the old dame. "Now, suppose you saw the king's coach dashing along, with run away horses, straight toward the edge of this cliff, what would you do?" The youngster eyed her in disgust. Evidently she was one of th<3& people who never imagine a boy has any sense.
