Ws Invite eommnniciitloni from All ppnmn whrisre

Btrtiaent. The Milkman In Malta.
One of the imwt Interesting thing
about traveling In foreign countries Is to
us, not so much the countries them
selves, ns the people who live In them.
While we admire fine scenery anil grand
buildings, mid like to vIhH ithoee plnces
famous for eome event In history, we
also like to know the jieople, nnd see
how they live, and how they manage
their matters of every-dny life in the
house and out of It. We have met peo
ple who have spent years abroad, and
who could talk about mountains and
lakes, cathedrals and painting, but
could tell nothing about the people of
the countries they visited, and who seem
to have taken no interest in what was
going on outride of, the hotels where
they staid. When we visit a strange
city, even in our country, we are sure to
make a visit to the market, and see what
the people live upon, and the different
ways In which the things are brought to
market and sold. The dllference between
a market in Boston, and one In Charles,
ton or New Orleans, is as great as if the
two were In a separate countries, and if
we go over the border to Montreal or
Quebec, we find many things that seem
new and strange. Not in the market
only, but other every-day matters are
managed differently In different parts of
our own country, and these things are
still more strange when we go abroad.
When we first visited a city in our next
door neighbor-country Mexico one of
bur first surprises was the way in which
people were supplied with water. (Join
ing from a city where there was water
in every house, and one had only to
turn a cock to get an abundance, you
may imagine how Btrnnge it seemed, to
see the water brought around to tho
houses in great leathern bugs upon the
back of a burro or jackass. These bags
were so arranged that one luing down
on each sideof the animal; at the bottom
of each bag was a hole, from which to
draw off the water, and the funniest
thing of all was the way in which this
hole was stopped, to keep in the water
until It was wanted. A cow's horn was
put in from the inside, and stuck part
way through the hole; when the Mater
inan wished to draw off water for a cus
tomer, he pushed up the horn a little
from the outside, and when enough had
been drawn, he let go of the horn, and
the weight of -the water in the bag
pressed it down so tight into the hole that
not a drop would leak. Another odd
thing In the same city was the way of
serving milk; there were milkmen, but
no milk-carts; the old cow herself was
both can and cart, as she was driven from
house to house, aud milked In the street
before the doors of the customers. This
is a slow performance, and hardly fair
on the cow, to oblige her to make the
milk, and carry it areund besides, but
the customer is quite sure to get fresh
milk and pure, though if all that is nn'd
of milk-inen in Yankee cities is true,
they would not be long in contriving
some way to water the milk. The
traveler who visit Malta, will see some
thing like this Mexican method of
(serving milk, only goats take the
place of cows. . In our country boys and
girls, at least those who do not live in
the cities, know little about goat's milk,
though in cities many of the poorer
people of the foreign population, keep
goats, as their neighbors, w ho have
gardens, know to their sorrow. ( font's
milk is very rich indeed, but you would
not like to drink it, as it has a taste quite
different from cow's milk, though per
sons used to It do not nfind if, we have
. often, in other countries, used It in
coffee, and found it very good. In hot
and dry countries there is not for the
greater part of the year grass enough to
support cows, and the people use gnats
instead, aa they will live upon any green
thing, and flourish where a cow would
etarve. In Malta, and other places In
southern Europe, the people use goat's
milk almost altogether, and the towns
are supplied by a boy, who milks the
goat while yon wait for the milk. The
flock of goats are driven along the streets,
tind milked at the hou.-ie-door. The
goats show great intelligence, aud seem
to know their business rjuite as well as
the persons in charge of them, as they
" aoon learn the places where they are to
lie milked, and will stop at the right
houses of their own accord. Auicrira
Salt for Cows.
A dairyman whose attention being
culled to the fact of an increase in milk
the days he gave his cows salt, ex
perimented until he decided that salt
given in email quantities every day is
the best way. , Salt in the morning just
lefore turning them out, a tablespoonful
to each cow, and the flow of milk will
-tie considerably lnerentted.
