West. / (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Here Is what it costs, in labor and feed, to produce 100 pounds of market milk in eastern Nebraska: Winter ilx months—concentrates, 41.2 pounds ; dry roughage, 05.3 poiyids ; silag« and other succulent roughage, 03.6 pounds; bedding, 11.1 pounds; human labor, 2 hours ; horse labor, 0.06 hour; hauling and grinding concen trates, $0.016 ; pasture, $»>,108; total costs, except depreciation on cows $0.788; depreciation on cow£, $0.018. Summer six months—Concentrates, 11 pounds; hauling and grinding con centrates, $0.004; dry roughage, 51.2 pounds; silage and other succulent roughage, 29.8 pounds; past a re, $0.653; human lab«r, 1.0 hours ; horse labor 6.08 hours; total costs except depre dation on cows, $0.805; depreciation on cows, $0.084. The work of determining the cost of producing milk In th}s section covers two one-year period. It wai begun by the bureau of annual Indus try, United States Department of Ag riculture, in co-operation vgth the de partaient of dairy husbandry of thi University of Nebraska, In September 1917, discontinued at the and of th« first year, and resumed In September 1919. The figures reported were based on actual records obtained by régulai monthly visits of 24 hours each tc eight farms for two years, and to 25 other farms for one year. The requirements for keeping th« average cow one year were: Concen trates, 1,529 pounds, hauling and grind lng concentrates, $0.60; dry roughage 4,275 pounds; silage and other succu lent roughage, 8,593 pounds; pasture, $22.01; bedding, 340 pounds; human labor, 118.6 hours ; horn« labor, 3.5 hours; other costs except depreciation on cows, $46.85; depreciation on cows, $4.78. During the first winter gnd summer the average Incomes frou milk wer« not sufficient to meet the average costs. In the second year the incomes were above the average exists in both seasons. The greater percentage oi the year's income was received in the winter, but the feed, pasture and bed ding costs exceeded the summer costs and for The the him as he as all of by a greater percentage than the win ter receipt* exceeded the summer re ceipts. Although the figures obtained show what was required to produce milk for the Omaha market under the system of dairy management found In the sec tion studied, and probably approxi mate the requirements In similar lo calities, It is pointed out by the de partment that they, of course, do not apply to dairying In sections where different conditions and methods ol management prevail. Additional details of the record and work are contained in department Bul letin 972, "Unit Requirements for Pro ducing Market Milk in Eastern Ne braska," recently Issued by the United States Department of Agriculture.

V Feed For Dairy Cows Should Be Care fully Weighed. MOLD REPORTED IN SILAGE Trouble Occurs Only Where Air Is Present, Generally Caused by Lack A Water. The nsual number of complaints are coming in regarding the presence of mold in silage. Mold can grow only when air Is present. Air generally gets In as the result of the silage be ing too dry when put Into the silo. If water was added, not enough was used. Poor packing may cause the same trouble. Mold around the doors and against the wall is the result of poor construction of the silo which allows air to enter. Nothing can be done now to-remedy the condition. At the next filling time special care should be taken to see thnt the corn contains snough moisture and that it Is well tramped. It Is always safest to reject moldy silage especially for horses and sheep, although for cattle there seems be little danger.— C. H.

The cold December wind was driving the snow against the frosty windows, and now arid then It seemed to fairly screech at him. Some of the snow appeared to have got into his hair, and some of the frost into his heart, for he looked old, and cold, and grim. The firelight shadows that played on the wall were like the thoughts that went to and fro In his mind In the light of the memories of the brighter days of the past The empty chairs reminded him of his friendlessness, the slow ticking of the old clock, as it tried to be a companion, only made him feel how lonely he was. He felt as much out of the world, as far away from Its gladness as the picture of his grandfather that hung over the shelf. Mr. Gimlet was wondering what he would get for Christmas. He had spent many years in wondering what he would get, and had gotten a good many things. No one had a better house than he, few had as much money as he had. There was a park, there was a garden ; within and without and all about him were the things ■ that money can buy. Yes, Mr. Gimlet was as rich as money and things can make a man. And yet, although all these things had not made him happy, he was wishing foe more. He did not know any better than to wish for more, and, though he could not think of any thing that he needed, he hoped that someone would think of something or other that he might want and that might give him a gleam of real Christ mas Joy. Away out on a prairie the Bump family were holding a consultation, after the children had gone to bed. At that moment the father and mother of the family were perplexed and even a good deal worried. The Bumps had been practicing farming for some tiirie, but without anticipated results. The children didn't see anything the matter with farming. The move out of the smoky city had been an en trance into paradise for them. Don ald had ten hens and a rooster. Doro thy owned two Muscovy ducks, with green feathers. Kenneth had a little pony that they called "Bigger," be cause they thought he would grow. Small Edith kept a flower bed that she called her "gardy." There was a pony cart. They had raised a 48-pound watermelon. Father had said that the rest of the garden wouldn't amount to a hill of beans, but it had. There was apt to be enough for yum yum cake, with raisins in it, to go around. Why, it was like a perpetual picnic 1 And even now, with all things under the snow blanket, and the pony and the two cows safe in the h Dear our 'em. come with the to ful he lit a ly of he a I« <2^ I Hi I n Cli F Ye«, Mr. Gimlet Was as Rich Money and Thing« Can Make a Man. barn, farmer Bump had laughed with the happy, rosy children, as the dog Jake toiled up the hill with the sled, so that they all might go shouting down again. "They're a Jolly bunch," Bald farmer Bump. But that night the Bumps were holding a consulta tion. Although the two cows In the barn were bare, yet tlier* was a blanket on them. The consultation was about that blanket. Farmei Bump called It a mortgage and didn't knoV how he was going to pay It. No wonder It was an anxious consulta tion. Short crops and a mortguge! Enough to flatten out even the Bumps ! But while the Bumps were talking things over, the clldren were having dreams. They had laid awake for a while, talking about the best place to hang up Christmas stockings, and a part of the conversation downstairs, the mortgage part, had come up to their ears. A little of the worry, too, bad come with It, so thnt they fell paleep with a little uneasiness about of If of be At the blanket that does not keep things warm, but makes them cold, and won dering what a mortgage could be. and _could take It off without In his dream Donald heard boy singing this song : "Sing, little Jesus, sing for me. There's nothing on roy Christmas tree. You see, this little boy had a tree, but there wasn't a thing on It, not even leaf. So he planned how to get some thing to grow upon it. Finally, he sang the song that Donald heard In hit dream, and the next time he looked out there was his tree, full of red and gold apples, with leaves on all the twigs and many pretty things among them, and Donald saw It all in his dream. So, when he awoke, Donald thought he would sing the song too, and see If Jesus couldn't take the shadow of that awful mortgage away, and he sang : Bing, little Jesus, sing for me!

Then, when father went to town, with the little pony, Bigger, he put the letter into the post office, only he directed It to Mrs. Bump's brother, Mr Ephraim Gimlet. Mr. Gimlet was very much surprised to hear from the Bumps. He had [os MtfMvj ïéx f vV fe» * V & r; I 4 T' The Next Day the Carrier Brought a Promising Looking Box. forgotten that he had a sister, and that there were a lot of little hope ful Bumps. An old trouble had made him bitter and forgetful, and he had felt more alone In the world than he really was. As he sat again by the firelight, but on a clear and moon- | lit night, he mused on things past with a new tenderness In his heart and wel corned a new thought that came warm ly to him and brought a loveiv pur- y pose with it He would play Santa Claus, and give himself the surpris® of making others happy! So, the day before Christmas things happened at the Bump house. As Mr. Bump went to the wayside post box he found two letters. One of them made him sad, for it was from the man who held the mortgage, and It said that thé time for payment had come. It meant to Mr. Bump, "your money, or your cows." But the other letter was from Mr. Gimlet, and It made Mr. Bump laugh until he cried, for it was a check, for $300, with some kindly, friendly words and good wishes, enough to cure the cows and all the family troubles. , The next day the carrier brought a most promising looking big ^ from Uncle Gimlet, so that the Christ mas tree was full of happy surprises for the little folks and a gift or two for the big ones.

The knocking at the door of the house occupied by Charles von Kleist, in Brooklyn, was not peremp tory, nor yet did It savor of stealthi ness. During the silence which fol lowed, the two men on the doorstep looked at each other Inquiringly. Then— Tap—tap—tap, they knocked again. Slowly, silently, the door swung open and, from the Inner recesses of a pitch-black hall, came a voice which inquired, in guttural German: • "Who are you, and what do you want?" "We come from the Wolf," was the reply. "He said that you would know what we wanted." "From the Wolf?'' echoed the voice, from within. "How do I know that you are not wolves yourselves? How T "This'll prove who we are," inter rupted the man who had previously spoken, producing a card and slipping it post the stout chain which guarded the door. "Read and act," he contin ued, still in German. A moment later the chain had been removed and the two men, their coat collars turned high, their hats pulled low, entered the darkened hall. Not until the old man had refastened the door and preceded them into a room where the tightly closed shutters ef fectually prevented any spying from the outside, did he again address them. When he did speak, It was merely to Inquire their names. "Bamltz," replied one of the men— the one who had carried on the con versation from the outside. "Barth," said the other. "Bamltz," the old man repeated ru mina tively. "That is a name of the Fatherland, a good name. But Baith? I know it not. Is It not English?" "American," corrected the first of the stranger*. "It would not do to use too many of our citizens in tills plan. It would cause suspicion. We mnst use all kinds of people—that's how we fool these Yankees ! Besides, should you doubt, there is the card from the I Wolf. That bears both names." "That is so," agreed the German, "and Von Igel is not one to take any chances. He is too close to Von Papen. For what were yon sent here?" "The Wolf wishes to be assured that everything Is going smoothly.
