Whether it is equally effective against powdery scab is doubtful, and for this reason the use of sulphur is strongly advised in addition.

Statistics show that during the summer months from one fourth to over one-half the eggs produced in Missouri are a total or partial loss. Heat is directly or indirectly responsible for a loss to Missouri farmers of two and one-half million dollars worth of eggs annually. Heat causes germ growth, embryo and mould development, in creases evaporation and causes eggs to become bad in a very short time. April eggs are high in quality because of the lower temperature which prevails at that time. According to studies made at the Missouri College of Agri culture, nearly all of the loss jn (.jjjrS due to heat can be avoided by the ordinary conveniences that the average farm provides. If farmers would take the same care of eggs that they do of butter before and during the time it is taken to market, there would be practically no loss from heat. Any temperature above 70 degrees is too warm. Even under the best of conditions eggs should be taken to market at lea-t once each week. Eggs should be collected daily and should be cooled as quick ly as possible. A sweet, fresh basement which is cool or a cyclone cellar makes a satisfactory place to sore eggs. They may also be kept cool by placing them in a bucket lowered into a well. Avoid storing them in musty basements and keep them away from flics. If these directions are followed and eggs are tected from heat while being taken to market, tlx soori's egg crop may be increased two ami one-half during the next four months. can fully pro 1 value of Mis million dollar- MOULDS FATAL TO POULTRY.

FURNISHING FARM HELP. Jewell Mayes, Secrctaiv o! the Hoard of multure, report! The production of coal in Wyoming in 1U1U was 7,3.:t,0tit short tons, with a spot value of $1 1," 10.01. according to E. W. Parker, of the United States Geological Survey, This production showed an increase of 21.1112 short tons over 1912 in quantity, but a decrease of SHIS, Obi in value. This increase in value, how ever, is probably not an actual loss. The output from Sweet water county, which produces nearly 40 per cent of the total, is derived largely from mines controlled by the Union Pacific Rail road, and this portion of the product is not commercial coal but is consumed entirely by the controlling interests. The plac ing of a value on it is purely arbitrary ami docs not represent market conditions. In Lincoln County," a large part of the pro duction is also controlled by railroad" interests, ami this county also showed a slight decline in the average value, but in Sheri- product i- chiefly commercial coal, there was a small advance. Conditions were generally satisfactory through out the year, and not a single strike or 'lockout was reported. The troubles between opuatots and the miners' union in Colo rado benefited Wyoming by an intlux of labor from the ('(dorado fields ami increased the demand for domestic coal from Kansas, Nebraska and norther Colorado. In HU2 a new county, Lincoln, was carved our of I 'nit a County, and in 1 1 1 :i ihe portion of Rig Horn County in which 8!

Wyoming continues to maintain a high record for efficiency in the rate of production per man employed. The numher of men employed in 1913 was 8,351 who worked an average of 232 days in the production of- 7,3.)3,(M)6 tons of coal. It is gratifying to record a decreased percentage in the pro duction of "powder-mined" coal. In 1912, 3,180,0(i7 tons, or over 40 per cent of the total was shot off the solid; in 1913 that part of the output amounted to 2,719,884 tons, or not quite 37 per cent. Another gratifying record made hy Wyoming in 1913 was a decrease in the numher of fatalities reported hy the United States Hureau of Mines. In 1912 there were 31 deaths ly accident and in 1913 there were 20. due to falls of roof, falls of coal, haulage-way accidents, etc. The record for the year was free of gas or dust explosions. THE (iROWTII AND COLOR CHANGES OF HAIR. The attempt to find an illuminating account of the factors which may modify or determine the growth of hair will usually le a vain one The older writers, who did not always hesitate to make dogmatic statements when they were required to pro duce a finished account, sometimes discussed the suhject with considerahle freedom. Not so the modern scientific author, who realizes that every sentence from his pen is likely to he suhjeeted to the scrutiny and criticism of someone who has studied the topie at tir-t hand. The general descriptions of the processes of growth have heen satisfactory. Facts concerning these processes tire per manent acquisitions of physiology, hut they do not commonly rise to the level of practical prohleiiis. Why does or does not the hair grow in certain regions in certina individuals? What are the conditions coiitrihutory to growth? How are the natural changes in color hrought ahout and what determines them? l'Aperimenta! studies in this field cannot readily he conducted matters of common ohser--haviug, and this tonsorial growth of the ahri. heard is also said to 1're- grow on man.

If the pignant which produces the natural color of the hair is lacking, the hairs present a gray or white appearance. The sil very color may further he due to the presence of more or less air in the ahir. To account for the hlanching of the ahir the fami liar accompaniment of old age and a phenomenon which frequently hegins long hefore middle life is fairly concluded various views have heen set forth at different times. The silvery gray appear ance which is seen in aging persons is prohahly characterized to some extent hy the occurrence of larger numher of air cavities, and not hy destruction of the pigment. Hair, pigment can he destroyed only hy the most vigorous chemical treatment. Dry hairs contain more air and therefore will appear wsomehat lighter in color than moist ones; hut hlack hair may he dried to the ut most without becoming white, and the hair of mummies dried through the centuries still show their pigment precisely as do fresh hairs. The explanation of the familiar color changes of the hair is probably to be found not in a destruction of pigment already present, not in any bleaching of hairs already formed, but rather in a complete renewal of the hair. Pigmented hairs fall out and are placed by unpigmented or white ones. The appearance of gray or white hair is therefore attributable to the formation ofja new hair coat rather than by the alteration of the old one. Com pletely pigmented hairs never turn gray; they fall out. It is never the less observed that the process of pigment formation may cease during the development of a hair. In that event the tip will remain pigmented though the base appears white. How are we to harmoniize these statements, asks The Journal of the American Medical Association, with the many published records of hair having turned white suddenly as the presumable consequence of fright or othor profound emotion? A careful study of the reputed instances has invariably shown that they were mythical. It is popularly related that Marie Antoinette grew gray during the night after she was condemned to be executed. It is true at her death her hair was gray; but her biographers all record that her hair had been gray long before the time of her death. It is also quite possible that the change in her hair while in prison was due to the fact that she did not have access to hair dyes and other toilet preparations. This may serve to illustrate the value of hearsay evidence and popular tradition. The conspicuous changes which the color of the fur of certain species of animals undergoes at different seasons of the year, be coming white in the winter months, affords an opportunity of investigating this pronounced transformation seemingly so closely related to what is seen in advancing age in man. The studeis of Schw allie vhave demonstrated that here too there is no alter ation of the colore of the summer fur. The dark haisr fall out a- the season advances and white hairs grow in their place. No sudden changes are found when accurate observations are in-ti-tuted.
