Department of Agriculture Lighter Carrying Export Beef Cattle From Jersey City to Steamer Dock in New York Harbor. During three months period ending September 30, a total of 1,336 hogs and 31 cattle were shipped from New Orleans to Havana, Cuba. The hogs were destined for slaughter, while the cattle consisted of well-bred dairy animals, mostly Holsteins. Prospects indicate that future trade through the port of New Orleans will include shipments to Mediterranean and South Amer ican points. In this connection it is worthy of mention that the live stock exports from New York during the same period consisted of 1,252 cattle to Antwerp, Belgium; 00 horses to London, England; 61 horses to Havre, France; 40 cows and 157 hordes to Bermuda; 6 horses and 2 mules to Trinidad; 40 mules to British West Indies. J Registered Cattle and Babies From Pu'letin of the United States Public Healt'a Service Horse and cattle breeders owning "blooded" stock do not fail to have their animals "registered." It adds to their value, and is therefore justly regarded as highly desirable. In sharp contrast is the attitude of many care less parents of Children. Here are a few reasons why baby's birth should he registered : To establish identity ; to prove nationality ; to prove legiti macy; to show when the child has the right to enter school ; to show when the child has the right to seek employ ment under the child labor law ; to es tablish the right of Inheritance to property ; to establish liability to mili tary duty, as well as exemption there from ; to establish the 'right to vote ; to qualify to hold title to, and to buy or sell real estate; to establish the right to hold office ; to prove the age at which the marriage contract may he entered into ; to make possible sta tistical studies of health conditions. IN CULLING KEEP ONLY GOOD PULLETS Every well-developed, early-hatched pullet in good health is a potential egg layer. Just as there is no method of judging the speed of a horse before he has been raced br of determining the butterfat record of a heifer before she has been freshened, so there is no accurate means of telling how many eggs the pullet will lay until she has been given a trial. As a rule, most pullets which start laying before win ter will lay at least enough 'eggs to pay for their feed during their first laying season. All mature, vigorous pullets should be kepf. Any weak, urt dersized, late-hatched, or deformed pullets should be culled out in the fall. Other methods of estimating the fu ture egg production of pullets are in accurate and their use is not advised. The real problems in culling a poul try flock are found with hens that have finished one or two laying sea sons. The general rule with pullets is to keep practically all and with aged hens to dispose of all, but with all yearling hens and with two-year-old hens of the lighter breeds some should be sold and others kept. To cull hens of these ages every bird mast be studied to determine her value. Nature has marked the poor producer, and the poultry keeper should be able to recognize the marks. Ohio Leads in Pottery. The potters of the United States broke all records for production last year with an output valued at more than $65,000,000, Ohio being the lead ing slate with nearly 40 per cent of the total. Violin Maker Manufactures Fiddles With Pocketknife Material of strange description con tributes interest to the productions of an eccenlric Ohio violin maker whose instruments are noted for their ornate carvings. Extremely simple tools are used by the workman, an old pocket knife with nicked and rusted blades being one of his favorite implements. In spite of this, the instruments have an excellent appearance and good tonal qualities. Wood tnken from the heart of a partly petrified log dug up in an eastern state forms the back of one of the extraordinary violins. Another un usual instrument lias a back made from one of the drawers of a bureau brought to this country from England shortly after the historic voyage of the Mayflower. Hot Application to the Abdomen Is an Old Remedy One of the old standby of doctors is t&e application of heat to the abdomen Exports Heavy Kiev, With About 500,000 Inhabitants, Combination of Both the Old and New Kiev contains about 500,000 inhabi tants, and comprises four distinct dis tricts, which may also be called sep arate towns. Podol, the commercial quarter, skirts the river Dnieper, and above it, on a steep declivity, is Lipki, the residential quarter, and an en chanting spot in summer, with Its handsome villas embowered In dark, luxuriant foliage. North of that is Kiev proper, which contains the university and the cathe dral of St. Sophia, a building erected in the eleventh century, but so con stantly repaired and added to that it is now a huge and towering structure with more than a dozen large golden domes. Here also are the theaters, hotels and shops, which are quite as mod ern as those of Petrograd or Moscyw. Petchersk, the fourth district. Is honey combed with caves and catacombs that in olden, days were used as places of refuge and as monastic cells, and where, during holy festivals, one can scarcely move through the dense crowds of pilgrims, of whom 300.000 annually visit this ancient and revered monastery. - SAYINGS OF WISE MEN Everyone has his peculiar nabit.

Little discourse is gold, too much is dirt. German proverb. A dram of discretion is worth a pound of wisdom. German proverb. That only is a disgrace to a man which he has deserved to suffer. Phaedrus. Weaving of Artistic Rug as Old as Greece Itself Rug making Is as old as Greece it self, but It was never made a commer cial item, and it was rare indeed that a weaver could be persuaded to part with his rug. Greek rugs are of two kinds, the heavy ones used in winter and the light ones used at all times. In the beginning the designs were of the simplest, but later the Greeks bor rowed floral designs from the Persians, which loan was amply repaid with the development of Grecian art. Venetian rugs are also very rare. Turkish Women Industrious. Turkish women . are to be counted among the most industrious on earth. They make carpets, screens for doors, workbags, horse clothing and blankets. A Turkish girl makes all the kibitka or tent carpets and other household requisites before she is married. in the form of hot-water bags, hot plates, hot compresses or even hot fiat irons. This produces a certain sense of well-being and is supposed to relax spasm and aid digestion. But the Jour nal of the American Medical Associa tion points out that all experiments to ascertain how the heat acts fail to prove that it acts at all. It is certain that the heat does not actually pene trate the organs within the abdomen, and it may be that whatever results are obtained are brought about by way of the nervous mechanism connecting the skin and the internal organs.

Kidwelly Is Quaint Old Welsh Town; Place Lives Largely in Days Gone By Kidwelly is a quaint old town in Wales. It Is a dreamy little com munity set in snugly between broad marshes and Carmarthen bay, and di vided by a curving river with an un pronounceable Welsh name. Old Kid welly lives largely in the past. It has been the wcene of battles and sieges. It has a castle whose turrets and round towers still stand bravely, their age kindly hidden by the vines that enfold them. It pretends to remember well the oc casion of the Welsh princess who stormed the town at the head of her army. It tells the story proudly, a little sadly at the end, for the warrior princess was executed by her enemies. It is a dusty, unromantic climb to the battlements, but the view from the castle top is worth the trip. The quaint, tumbledown houses at the foot of the walls are a mere skeleton of the old town as it was in its prime. Be yond them are marshy fields rolling away to the next village. Far below is the river once thronged with ships of trade that long ago deserted it for richer1 ports. Its streets are almost empty, and its old-fashioned residents, primly oblivious to new improvements and styles of architecture, testify loud ly to its age.

A SONG OF LOVES Through branches of their leaves bereft The sunlight glitters golden; The moss with velvet clothes each cleft In ruins grim and olden; On falling towers the ivy strong All signs of wreck effaces; The streamlet sings its sweetest song Across the stony places; When moonless is the wintry sky Then brightest is the starlight; Beyond the breakers tierce and high We see the beacon's far light; The snowdrop rings its silver bell When snowdrifts shroud the meadows; The winds their sacred secrets tell Behind the evening' shadows. And so, sweetheart, when thou art old And sad and worn and ..weary, When all the world is growing cold. And all the land looks dreary. My heart will follow then the lead Of star and moss and river. And love thee best in greatest need Forever and forever. Peaceful Color of Green Was Mother Earth's Choice How many of us ever wonder why Mother Earth chose to dress in green? The earth was not always green. Once it was as naked as the moon ; but there came a day when the weather grew cool enough to demand clothing, and at that time, no doubt, our material planet began to look about to choose a color scheme for her dress. Why she chose green is not of record, but that she chose it with her whole heart every pleasant place of creation testi fies. Scientists explain that this is merely a natural phenomenon, the col or being chlorophyl pigment, turned green by action of the sun. But why it did not turn blue, or red, or black no scientist knows. About all we can say Is that Mother Earth wanted a green dress, and she went and got it. Australian Caterpillars Large.

"What's the matter, Mr. Moon?" asked the pine tree, and Mr. Moon looked down at th pine tree rath er solemnly, and said: "Nothing is the matter. What makes you ask?" "You look so sad, Mr. Moon," said the pine tree. "You do Indeed look very sad. I hope nothing has happened to make you sad ; I hope that Mrs. Moon didn't upset all the soup a3 she was taking It off the stove, and so Am Puzzled." you tlidn't have much dinner because she was careless." "Ha,, ha!" laughed Mr. Moon, but still not so happily as he might have laughed. "That's rather a good joke, pine tree. To think of a stove and soup and dinner! Gracious, we don't think of such things, though I must say, I'm a great hand for looking in windows." "Now you have cracked a joke," said the pine tree. "That was a joke." "I must admit that I am puzzled, and that I would like you to explain. I don't see that I cracked a joke. In fact, I think, pine tree, you must be looking out for a joke, and that you're seeing a joke which isn't a joke." "Ah, no," said the pine tree; "I saw a joke which was a joke, and no mis take about It." "Then, if you're sure of it," said Mr. Moon, "I wish you'd tell it to me, and If I don't see the point, please explain it to me." "Well." said the pine tree, "you must be sad. for usually you don't have to have the points of jokes told to you." "It isn't because I'm sad," said Mr. Moon, "but because I'm really, really afraid your joke isn't a joke." "Yes, It is," said the pine tree, sing ing softly to Itself : "It Is a joke, yes, It Is a joke, which Mr. Moon cracked, which Mr. Moon cracked." "Tell it to me." said Mr. Moon. "You said." commenced the pine tree, "that you were a great hand for look ing into windows." "So I am," said Mr. Moon. "There I no joke about that." "Ah yes, there is," said the pine tree. "What is it?" asked Mr. Moon. "I was sure your joke was such a poor one that you'd have to explain the point to me." "I'll explain it to you, and after I have," said the pine tree, "I am sure you will be surprised you didn't see It yourself." , "Maybe," said Mr. Moon; "I'll judge of that later." "Well," said the pine tree, "how can you be a great hand for looking Is windows?" "I can, and I am," said Mr. Moon. I love to see parties and chiHIren eat ing, or children sleeping, and I love to see the dream fairies dancing over the heads of children." . . "That may be so," said the pine tree, "hut you're not a great hand at seeing these things. Your hand doesn't look in the window, and you don't see with your hand. Besides, you've'-a face and not a hand, or two hands." "Dear me," said Mr. Moon; "dear me; yes, I will admit that is a joke. Still. It's an expression, pine tree, which I have learned 'from the peo ple. I've watched them and heard, them speak in this fashion." "Well, then I will excuse you," said ihe pine tree, '.'but It did seem funny to me. "But I wanted, to ask you what made you sad, and why you looked sad this evening?" continued the pine tree. "I don't look sad," said Mr. Moon; "or, rather, I dqn't mean to. You see, I am thinking and planning and trav eling and doing all sorts of things when I wear this suit ; when I'm a half moon, in oth er words. "Of course, I plan and travel at other times, too. But when I wear rav full dress suit I'm ready for par ties and jollifica tions. When I wear my crescent shape suit I'm ready for fancy dress affairs, but when I'm a half "Children Eating moon and wear this suit, it's my time for quiet and thought alone and for very few parties." "Oh. now I see," said the pine tree. "And I'm happy as long as you're not sad." "T'm not sad," said Mr. Moon, "not at all." "Good," said the pine tree, "that is verv good." Why We Pray for Bread.

Eternal youth seems to have heen accorded in full measure to some microbes. Before the French Academy of Science Prof. Yves Pelage read a paper reporting discoveries by Doctor Gallipe. who is credited with finding in century-old paper organisms still living. According to this report, these organisms resisted heat of 248 degrees Fahrenheit. "Time no more than heat seems to have had effect on these little organ isms, as "Doctor Gallipe has found liv ing ones in paper of the fifteenth snd eighteenth" centuries," said Professor Delage. "They are capable of cultiva tion and of movement. "More than that.
