THE MILKY WAY
Is Shown to the Delight of Rock
Island and Molina
VISIT TO THE TRI-CITY FARM
What Came of Saturday's Excursion
Into Black Hawk Town
ship. Not all of the 150 citizens of Rock
Island and Moline who made the ex
cursion over the Rock Island road Into
91ack Hawk township Saturday after
noon may have been star gazers, but
they were shown the milky way in
most approved fashion and siren a star
performance by daylight at that. It
was one of the most pleasant after
noon outings of the season, profded
through the Tri City Pasteurized Milk
company, in order to afford opportuni
ty for inspection of the company's new
plant on its lately acquired farm, four
miles west of Milan on the Mercer
county branch of the Rock Island. Wal
ter Rosenfleld and J. "W. .Parker repre
sented the company officially and it
need not be said both proved noble
hosts and entertainers, from the time
the special train left the twin-cities un
til their guests were safely landed
The farm, which embraces 800 acres
which the company leased not long alio
trom the Henderson estate is destined
at no far distant date to be the scene
of one of the largest industries in the
dairy line in the country. Those who
saw Saturday what had already been
accomplished, have no deubt about
that. The progress that has already
been made shows one of the most mod
ern and best equipped farms that one
would ordinarily conceive of.
The business men were first given
un opportunity to Inspect the barns and
buildings of the farm, aud later to wit
ness the interesting work of feeding
and milking the 200 cows owned by
the company. And what imv " of
particular delight to the vi..:i,r.- . :-s
the lunch, consisting of sandwuues
and large glasses of fresh milk.
The farm is equipped with the most
modern implements and its arrange
ment is the result of considerable
study and investigation of methods
which tend not only to convenience
and expedience, but to absolute clean
liness and devotion to hygiene prevails.
Kvery feature of the farm is arranged 1
with this object in view, and every pre-1
caution is taken to insure the purest
and cleanest products. Besides the
homestead and living apartments for
the employes, there are four buildings
on the place. A large shed on the west
Is used for storing implements used in
the tilling of the iand. Adjoining it is
the horse stable, and east of this Is lo
cated the large cow barn, built in the
form of three sides of a square. This
building is the most interesting, per
haps. It is 34 feet wide, and its total
length on the three sides is 430 feet.
The south Bide of the square is open,
and in the space between the two en
trances to the cow barn stands the
The cow barn has a total floor space
of 22.500 square feet, and is consider
ed the largest dairy barn In the coun
try. It is so arranged that the cows
stand facing the windows, a separate
ttall being provided for each animal
A unique feature is that the cows are
not tethered by means of stanchions,
halters, or chains. On taking their
places in the stalls, the employes hook
a cha!n back of each cow. These
chains are light, and could easily be
broken, but no difficulty has been ex
perienced with this method. The pas

contained the 200 cows wi'en the party
arrived, and as it was nearly milking
time, the visitors were privileged to
witness the work of the employes in
taking the cows to the barn, or rather
of allowing the cows to go to the
bcrns. They went from the pasture
in bunches of from eight to 12, a man
guarding the gate and closing it when
that number bad been let out. It was
remarkable that the cows, with a very
few exceptions, knew their own stalls,
and went directly to their places. In
view of the fact that some of the ani
mals had been In the barn only a few
weeks, this seemed surprising, consid
erlng the large number of stalls.
The cow barn is kept remarkably
clean, and the running water aids in
this respect. When the cows enter the
stalls, their feed has been prepared.
and while they enjoy their evening
meal, the employes do the milking
Each cow stall and feed box has a cor
responding number, and the feed is dis
tnDuted scientifically. Tne propor
tions are determined by the condition,
appetite, and milk producing powers
of the animal, and the rations are
weighed out accurately.
Sclent lie Mllklas.
The milk each cow gives is weighed
daily, and an accurate record kept.
The milk is tested at each milking by
the employes, to determine the qual
ity. and detect disease or impurities
The cow barn has on the main floor
a capacity of 23G cows, and later stalls
are to be arranged in the basement
for 100 cows. The basement is to be
use.d for dry cows and calves. In the
loft it is possible to store 150 tons of
hay. Besides hay, the cows are fed
ensilage, alfalfa and flax seed. Water
from an immense tank is carried io
each wing of the barn. The barns are
equipped with hot and cold water fau
Ajoining the north wing of the cow
barn are three silos for storing the
ground feed, each having a capacity of
2C0 tons, and requiring over 20 acres of
standing corn to fill. There are now
200 acres of land under cultivation, and
the production the past year, under the
milk company's management was
twice that of any former tenant.
The visitors were considerably in
terested In the process of milking the
cows. The employes, who are all re
quired to wear clean white uniforms
after the cows are in the barn, first
curry the animals, sweep and sprinkle
the floors, wash their hands, clean
their nails, and after first washing
carefully the udders of the cows, pro
ceed with the milking. The milk palls
are all provided with a flILer of gauze
and cotton covering the small opening
at the top. The utensils are thorough
ly sterilized before using, and immedi
ately after the milking all the filters
are destroyed. The milk is at once re
moved to the milk house, where it is
aerated, placed in cans, and then stor
cd in cold water vats.
The milk house is 24x32 feet In di
menslons, and has cement floors, sep
arately drained to the sewers. The
walls are of hard plaster. Here all of
the utensils are carefully washed, first
in cold water, then in hot, and finally
are sterilized with live steam from the
boiler room of the milk house.
Character of the Stock.
The stock of the farm has been pur
chased almost exclusively from tha
dairy districts, few cows being bought
in this locality. The herd consists of
35 per cent Holstein, 35 per cent Guern
seys and Jerseys, and the remainder
of natives and Shorthorns. This pro
portion will be closely maintained.
Many of the cows are blood or bet
ter, and all are of high grade stock.
The herd has all been tested for tuber
culosis, and the health of all the ani
mals established. The cows, according
to the superintendent, were bought for
milk records rather than for their ap
pearances. Mr. Mulinax states that a
good dairy cow jg always thin In flesh,
and rarely of much value in the beef
market. The heads of the herd are
full registered Guernsey and Holstein
bulls. Some very promising calves
have been saved, but the majority are
disposed of as soon as possible. Sev
eral full blood animals have been
bought for the purpose of improving
the stock later.
The Tri-City farm undoubtedly com
bines the best features of a number of
the best equipped dairies in the coun
try. Its sanitary precautions are not
excelled, so far as is known, in tht
world. The plans and general supervi
sion of the farm are under the direc
tion of John W. Parker, the secretary
of the company. A. I-. Mulinax, the
superintendent in personal charge, was
for eight years superintendent of the
Tennessee state farm, at Knoxville.
By Way ml Dlversleau
Theexcursionists, during t he af I ernoou.
were given an interesting diversion in
a milking contest between W. F. East
man, of the Moline Dispatch, and F. E.
Leavens, manager of the Manufactur
ers hotel of Moline. Mr. Eastman was
easily the winner, he evidently having
milked a cow or two before. Mr. Leav
ens, however, furninhed much amuse
ment for the audience. He finally
iarned which was the right side to
milk on. and managed to get about two
quarts of milk. Just when he had mas
tered the manipulations of his hands,
the cow ended the contest by overturn
ing the pail, and also Mr. Leavens. Add
test of this city proved something of
an expert in the milking line.
Returning, the party left the farm at
4:30, unanimously voting to Messrs.
Rosenfleld. Parker, and the company
their thanks for the afternoon's pleas
ure, and the opportunity to see the
farm and its operations.
Mr. Parker has many plans under
consideration for the coming year In
cluding the clearing of 150 additional
acres of farm land, now in progress,
and the erection of additional buildings.
Object of Expedition to Africa
Headed by Prof. Fred
TO MAKE CAREFUL RESEARCH
Intends to Camp With Little Natives
in Their Remote Forest
Professor Frederick Starr, the enthu
siastic anthropologist of Chicago uni
versity, sailed from New York the oth
er day for Africa on what Is thought
to be one of the most Important ethno
logical expeditions of recent year, bis
especial mission being a year's so
journ in the wilds of the central Af
rican Jungle to investigate the habits,
customs, etc., of the pygmies, the yel
low men and the cannibals of that re
gion, says the New York Tribune. The
remarkable black lilliputians of Africa
form one of the enigmas of the dark
continent, rrofessor Starr hopes to
throw new light upon their origin and
ancestry by making a series of plas
ter casts, physical measurements, pho
nographic records, moving pictures and
hundreds of photographic negative? of
them. For this purpose he takes with
him an expert young Mexican photog
rapher, Manuel Gonzales.
When asked for an outline of his
plans, Professor Starr said: "I shall
study the little Batwa pygmies and
camp with them in their forest re
treats. The pygmies are in no sense
apish, as popularly supposed. The re
sult of my Investigations will, no
doubt, go far to prove that they have
been an unchanged race from their
creation and not a degenerate people.
I shall also make an investigation of
the strange yellow and copper hued
race of Africans recently made known
by Samuel Verner, the missionary sci
entist now in that country. He says
that the traditions of these yellow men
Indicate no white ancestry. They have
a traditional testimony of an unmixed
descent for hundreds of years. They
are superior In handicraft and culture
to the native blacks and do not like to
marry dark women.
An Many There a Here.
"There are about as many of these
yellow men In Africa as there are ne
groes In the United States. They are
scattered through many different trilx'S.
It is believed that they are the last sur
vivors of a migration of peoples cen
turies ago into Africa from the region
of the Nile ami the lied Seal Mr. Ver
ner's preliminary account, both of the
Batwa pygmies and the yellow negroes,
practically an unknown race of man
kind, has awakened a widespread de
sire among scientists for a more ex
tended knowledge In regard to them,
which can only .come from careful and
prolonged research, such as I propose
making. The field Is a rare nnd fas
cinating one for the ethnologist. The
results may open up a new chapter of
life on the dark continent."
Trofessor Starr's headquarters will
be 1,100 miles in the Interior, at Ndom
Ik, In the Belgian Kongo protectorate,
the capital city of King Ndombe, who
will aid hi in In carrying out his Investi
gations. Large bands of the Batwa
pygmies live in his territory. They pay
him tribute by furnishing meat and
game to supply his large household
King Ndombe is of a copper color, over
six feet six Inches tall and of herculean
luill. He has a face expressive of
kindly Intelligence and a searching pair
of brown eyes, each said to be as
large jis a quarter of a dollar. King
Ndombe' s domain Is about as large as
the state of New Jersey and contains
some lOO.fJOO Inhabitants. The king is
credited with possessing thirty-one
wives and forty children.
A band of some 300 pygmies lives on
the edge of King Ndombes town.
They dwell In beehive-like huts, formed
of bent sticks covered with leaves and
palm fibers, with an opening In the
bottom just large enough for them to
crawl through. The inside would be
about the size of two good sized dry
goods boxes. This cramped place shel
ters a man. wife and half a dozen chil
dren. A full grown native cannot
stand erect or He at full length In one
of these structures. The more primi
tive pygmies are to be found far In the
forest Interior, where the tree dwelling
tribes exist. Here cannibalism Is met
with, and some more or less dangerous
and thrilling experiences may result.
With pygmy guides and armed native
attendants rrofessor Pttrr will pitch
camp and carry on his observations
within range of the deadly poisoned
arrows of the tree hiding dwarfs, not
yej Introduced to white, men. .
Has Heea eit Door Neighbor.
Snmuel Verner, now awaiting I'ro-ft?s-or
Starr's arrival to introduce him
to King Ndombe, ami n bovas for many
months practically a next door nf'gti
1or to the little Mack dwarfs, says the
entire Hfe of the little people 1 given
up to banting and fishing. They never
till the soil or become agriculturists.
The'r principal weapon Is the primitive
Imw, with poisoned arrows. The pyg
mies nre often shorter than their bows.
The poison they use Is one of the most
fatal known. It will cause death in
from two to five minutes. Sometimes,
instead of quick death, the wound. If
Inflicted upon a person, will cause In
sanity. "A light scratch Is sufficient to
produce madness, and finally death by
convulsions in a hoot two weeks. There
Is no antidote yet discovered for this
poison. Many a pygmy hunter is so
expert that at seventy-five feet he can
send an arrow through a rat scamper -ins
full ypeed across the ground. Their ,

and much of their game Is discovered
through the medium of the nose. Their
peculiar species of diminutive dog doe
not bark, so a string of wooden bells
Is fastened about Its neck to indicate
Its whereabouts while hunting.
The average height of the Batwa
P.vgmy adult Is about four feet, a few
measuring four feet four. Many, how
ever, are less than four feet. The
women are a trifle shorter than the
men. As a rule, a man has only one
wife. They do not intermarry with
the larger Africans, though living side
by side; neither do they adopt their
customs. The little people are sun
worshipers. Their language is pecu
liar. The words denoting animals, for
instance, are derived from sounds
made by the beasts they describe. Ele
phant is "hum-ba, hum-ba." Snake Is
"luwilya-wllya." The last has a rus
tling sound when pronounced, imita
llve of the reptile wriggling over leaves.
Their vocabulary Is limited. A special
effort will be made by Professor Starr
to get a full version of their odd phrase
ology on the phonograph. A language
primer of the pygmies will t a nov
elty. History records their existence for
5.000 years. They were mentioned by
Herodotus. Some scientists think they
were the aborigines of Africa and ex

Invaded their domain, waged war up
on them and drove them to the depths
