&r-'+ IWTKItTHItII Clifford G. Childers of Colorado Springs, Colo., has sent to St. Louis an ingenious machine which he calls a nu-ai tenderer and seasoner. To make a long story short, says the fct. Louis Post-Dispatch, Mr. Childers has Invented a machine to take the leather out of beefsteak. It is some v-hat like a sausage machine, but in stead of chewing the meat into small bits it merely pierces it and picks it so lull of small holes that with a few turns of the crank the toughest steak becomes tender. Sancho Panzu desired to build a mon ument to the man who invented sleep. How much better Is the benefaction of Mr. Childers: To be sure, sleepless ness now and then brings down some member of the human family, but think of the serried ranks of that vast host of brave men, women and children who have gone up against the tough beefsteak and fallen before its stout blows!

At a meeting of the Mln n.-sota Dairymen's association several ladles reported their success in cow keeping. One woman, Mrs. Holmes, was fond of cows and had money to buy one. That was some years ago. Mrs. Holmes now has a farm of 240 acres In small grains and pasture. The gnun lands gave a phenomenal yield to the acre, the men farmers said when they heard the average was nearly fif ty bushels.
