courtier with each hand, and, after
holding them for a few moments
squirming in the air and begging to be
released, he relaxed his grip and al

water, amid the frantic applause of th

their monarch. The King Joicvl heart

Kwaty Milk Cass.
"Rusty cans and their effect irpon

bulletin of tie University of Wisconsin
Agricultural Experiment Station. Ex
periments Indicate that milk hauled In
the poorly tinned or rusted cans is ma

In addition to the retarding Influence
of the iron on the rennet action and
the neutralization of the acid by the
iron, it also produces taints or off-flavor.
The milk cans used to haul milk
to our creameries and cheese factories
are too often of a cheap grade, and
they are used too frequently after they
have become tainted, and the tin be
comes cracked and checked so that the
Iron is exposed and rusts. In these ex
periments, milk was placed In rusty tin
cans and allowed to stand for different
periods, while other samples of the
same milk were kept In glass beakers.
Every time that this experiment was
repeated, the milk kept In the rusty
cans gave evidence of a retarding Influ
ence on the rennet as compared with
the milk kept in the glass beaker. Milk
which was allowed to stand In Iron
utensils for several hours had a pecu
liar bluish color, indicating the pres
ence of- iron In the solution. It was
evident that the add in the milk acted
upon the Iron and dissolved some of it
The maximum quantity of iron dis
solved in the milk ranged from 1 to
Yi pounds for every thousand pounds

Study et Wladareaka.
An effort to determine the value ot
windbreaks on farms Is being made by
the Forest Service of the Uulted States
Department of Agriculture. At pres
ent windbreaks are planted bnphaxard
and many do not believe In them, so it
is time We had some definite Informa
tion on tbe subject If there Is a par
ticular kind of tree that makes a bet
ter protection to crops without doing
any harm we should know it. The
Forest Service proposes to find out
Just how much, if any, and when wind
breaks increase crop yields. Instru
ments will be used to measure heat and
cold, moisture and dryness, both above
and below ground ; to register the force
of tbe wind nvur the windbreaks aud
some distance away ; to measure light
Intensity and take note of the effects of
shade; to register frosts at different
distances from the trees and to keep,
account of the effect of windbreaks on
the snow which covers the ground to
leeward in winter. Many other meas
urements and tests will be made and
elaborate data will be collected by ex
perts who will have charge of the In
vestigation. Corn will be the first crop
studied behind windbreaks. Corn is a
particularly good crop to experiment
with because it Is easily injured by
hot dry winds, will not stand shading
and Is very sensitive to frosts.
If it Is found, as is generally sun-
posed, that windbreaks are a decided
advantage to crop yields. It will be an
easy matter for the farmer to plant
trees In his fence rows or along the
sides of his fields toward the prevail
ing winds and thus protect his crops as
well as produce a valuable crop of tim
ber. In view- of the fact that our tim
ber supply Is rapidly waning, it stands
every farmer lu hand to plant some
trees and to maintain the wood lots
upon htrfarm; so if windbreaks can be
used to advantage, he can easily make
the trees he plants serve a double pur
pose. The results of the investigation
will be awaited with interest Farm
Fowls on the farm should in the very
nature of things be the most profitable
of all fowls. They cost little to feed
and the- space they range over costs no
more on account of the presence of the
fowls. Most of them hnve free range
and forage for their food; this Is profit
able for the owner and enjoyable to tbe
Most farm flocks are too small. The;
might easily be Increased in size with
little effort and small expenditure. It
bas been said that a fowl will pay a
dollar a year clear-profit under such
conditions as prevail on the average
farm If they are rightly housed and
cared for. This is surely large enough
a profit to be Interesting to any farmer
Usually the farm fowls do not get cred
It for all they really do, for the farmei

nultry products used by his own fani
lly., which make quite au Item in thf
course of a year.
Not only the quantity should lie In
creased, but also the quality. There ar
vastly greater possibilities for profit In
pure-bred fowls than in scrubs. They
look better, weigh and lay better, and
really are better lu every way. Agri
