- A Modern Instance.
The wonderful advance made in the
science of farming during the last few
Tears is one of the best examples of
American progresaiveness. A little in
cident recounted by the Ashtabnla
(Ohio) Sentinel is characteristic. One
evening, a short time ago, a society in
Jefferson needed a gallon of cream.
The committee called up by telephone
the proprietors of a milk farm two
miles north of the town, and asked If
they could furnish it. The reply was
that they oould as soon as milking was
done. In 30 minutes from the time the
call was made, the cream was deliv
ered. ... The milk had been drawn from
the cow, put into a separator, the
cream extracted and sent to town by a
man on a bicycle. A few years ago
the committee would have had to send
a boy in the afternoon, "yesterday's
milk," would have had to be skimmed,
and if the boy had not treed too many
chipmnncks on the way, he might
have got back in time for the festival.

Should Women Smoke.
I have no earthly objection to women
smoking; only, if they do smoke, they
should smoke seriously. Most of them
just fool a little with a cigarette.

at all. If they really mean it, let
them take to cigars and pipes. I know

and I respect that woman. She gen

it. There is no playing there. She
looks on it as a sacred duty. She has '
a long pipe with a wooden stem and

visiting me, she just loaded up and
smoked, and loaded np and smoked,

meant business. I know another lady
who has a long Turkish pipe, and she,
too. means business. If women are
ever to be genuine smokers, that is the

Twenty-five dollars tor a pair of
spring chickens is a liberal price, yet
a Massachusetts farmer rejected It.
His pair of chickens, be thinks, are
quite uniqne, for they are twins, five
weeks old, and it is said that two
chickens born from a single egg have
never before been proved to live beyond
eight days. The buff brahma hen laid
rather a large egg, but no one thought
much about it until one morning the
farmer saw two bills instead of one
trying to break out of the shell. He
quickly removed the egg to the kitchen,
extricated the twin chicks, wrapped
them in cotton batting and placed them
in the oven. For three weeks the
chickens were kept in doors on a diet
of malted milk and brandy dropped
down their throats with a medicine
dropper. The twins are now hale and
hearty and run about the yard as vig
orously as any of their comrades.
One peculiarity, however, distinguishes
them from their mates. They are ex
elusive little aristocrats and neither
of them will associate with any other
chicken except his twin.
