SELECTING DAIRY COWS. By Professor W. H. Pew, Iowa State College. The breeds ot milk-producing cows nre numerous. All have excellent qualities, some excelling others in quality or milk produced and some ex- celling lu the percentages and total quantity ot hutter-fat produced. The breed which the farmer selects must be the breed which he particularly favurs and the one which is peculiar- ly adapted to the kind of market which lie is intending to supply. All the special-purpose breeds of dairy cows have been given public tests and have proved themselves to bo economical producers when pro- perly handled. Any one of the breeds ot dalry cattle, as the Guernsey, Jer- sey, Holstein, or Ayrshire, if adapted to the production of tho market de- mands and If properly handled and cared fur will yield the owner a good profit. The dairy cow, of whatever breed she may be, is a machine which econ- omically converts roughages and con- centrates into edible products as milk and butter-fat. It is the...

TOO MUCH COMMERCE. By W. M. "Thc chief trouble with the busy haunts," remarked tho wild man of the woods, as he peeled a turnip for home consumption, "ls the fact that people always want to sell you things. It ls Impossible to enjoy an unsejllsh, disinterested friendship. "You meet a man who seems to be one after your own heart. You size him up as one of nature's noblemen ami take him to tho bosom or your family and figure on giving him your eldest daughter In marriage, and then he reaches down Into his hip pocket and pulls out a prospectus and begins to explain that ho ls offering his friends the chance of their lives to get rich quickly by purchasing a few shares In the Giddy Fluke gold mine. Then you take a hatchet and brain him. You have to do this so often that you get tired of bloodshed after a while.

CHAPTER XI. RolMt's Niece. IRollit. tho housekeeper, was an overbearing man in the presence of his wife; with men he was a bully of a good-natured sort so long as his I temper was not roused; to the girl who passed as his niece he was a dif- ferent individual altogether. Had an outsider been told that the girl Buttered from delusions, ho would have appreciated the manner in which Holllt treated her. There was a suggestion of lending her to realise actual facts without directly contradicting any statement sho might make. Ile gave tho impression that he was convinced she would ul- timately recover, nnd was endeavor- ing to shorten tho time by a method of his own. Mrs. Holm, on tho other hand, spoko to tho girl as little as possible, but she was at groat pains to maka her comfortable, to givo her food which she could enjoy, and seemed to experience a difficulty in not calling her "ma'am," much to tho annoyance of her husband.
