Milk-Condensery Prices. Mr. E. B. Willey, who travels for one of San Francisco's creamery sup ply houses, is a native of New Berlin, New York, where is located one of the plants of the Borden Condensed Milk Company. He has recently re ceived from there an account of what the dairymen receive for their milk from the condensry people, says San Francisco Dairy Produce. In October last the price was $1.45 per hundred pounds; November, $1.55; December, $1.65; January, $1.65; February, $1.50, and March $I.4o—an average of $1.53 for these winter months. In 1895 the Borden Condensed Milk Company put in a condensery at that place, which at that time had 950 in habitants. The population has increas ed to 1,450 at the present time, the growth of population being attributed almost wholly to the condensery. The supply of milk has increased every year since the factory was established. The concern not only condenses the milk, but also manufactures the cans in which the product is put. The plant rovers ten acres. In the flush of the season it obtains milk from 400 dairy men and gives employment to 200 per sons, and pays out as much as $50,000 per month to dairymen and employes. The largest amount of milk received in one day was 216,094 pounds. It took 10 barrels of sugar to sweeten this amount and 45,000 pounds of coal to condense it. COMPOSITION OF LINSEED MEAL. As is well known, flax is valuable not only for the oil products that are ob tained from it, but also for the meal which is left after the oil has been re moved. A bulletin from the Minnesota station says that the composi tion of linseed meal varies ac cording to the thoroughness with which the oil has been removed from the seeds . When the oil is extracted with chemicals, as is the case with the new process oil meal, very little fat is left in the product. On the other hand, when the oil is extracted with pressure, leaving what is known as old process oil meal, the product contains from 7 to 8 per cent, of fat. The average composition of twelve samples of oil meal used in various feeding experiments at the station showed that about 7 per cent, of fat or oil was the usual amount present. In some cases the fat left in the meal was as high as 9 per cent, and in one case it was as low as 5 per cent. The average amount of protein in the oil meal is 32.50 per cent. It is this constituent or nutriment which gives the high value to the oil meal. The oil meal is a very concentrated protein food. It is valuable because it furnishes such a large amount of ma terial for replenishing the waste tis sues of the body, the construction of muscles, and the stimulation of milk production. Nearly a third of the weight of the oil meal is this vital nu- In each pound package of Lion Coffee from now until Christmas will be found a free game, amusing and instructive —50 different kinds.

In fact the oil meal is richer in protein than the original oil seeds, because the forty pounds of oil meal contains all of the protein in the origi nal sixty pounds or bushel of flax peed. The amount of fiber in linseed meal ranges from 7.20 to 9.7 per cent, 8.5 per cent, being about the average, which is larger than the fiber in wheat bran, but is not quite as large as the amount in shorts. As a rul- 1 there is less than 10 per cent, of water in lin seed meal. The amount of ash is about 5.25 per cent., while the amount ol carbohydrate compounds ranges from 40 to 45 per cent. There is a factory at Portland, which has been in successful opera tion for several years, which supplies linseed oil meal of high quality—the Portland Linseed Oil Works. Running The Hand Separator. Those who use the hand separators should take a few lessons from the hurdy-gurdy or hand organ men, to learn to keep a rotary motion and keep up the speed until the end. Many will start off rapidly, but soon tire and go more slowly. Others can put out their strength when pushing forward and downward, but fail when they are pulling the handle toward them or lifting up. If one has a dozen or more cows we think it will pay to use the gasoline engine. Al though we have not tried them, what we have read gives us a high opinion of them. No trouble to start or stop them any more than to light a match or blow one out. No waiting to get up steam, and it is said that the later styles will give regular speed that is not easily to be obtained by hand power or by tread power.—Massachu setts Plowman. There are different kinds of success. There is the success that brings with it the seared soul —the success which is achieved by wolfish greed and vul pine cunning—the success which makes honest men uneasy or indignant in its presence. Then there is the oth er kind of success —the success which comes as the reward of keen insight, of sagacity, of resolution, of address, combined with unflinching rectitude of behavior, public and private.—Theo dore Roosevelt.
