FARM AND GARDEN FARM NOTES.; v A cow will drink often If water is accessible at all times. Do you know, reader, that one cause of tuberculosis is breathing impure air of close filthy, ill-ventilated •tables. Oiling the separator occasionally with kerosene will cut the gum and facilitate the easy running of the machine. To the farmer who has been down to the mud hole to break the ice so the cows can drink, I will say most earnestly, pure water is an important factor in keeping the cows in good condition and yielding wholesome milk. - ' It is sometimes inconvenient to bed the cows well when other duties are pressing but it is crueLto let a cow lie on a floor that is bare or nearly so. Shredded corn fodder makes an excellent roughage, we find, to feed the cows at any time and especially before calving if one doesn't happen to have silage. The men that have succeeded in snaking dairying pay care for their cows so as to make them produce the greatest amount of human food at the least Cos...

Napkin Monograms. One of the latest fancies is to have the initial or monogram directly In the centre of the napkin. An Odd Milk Test. One clever housekeeper has learned to outwit a milkman, whom she suspected of diluting his stock of milk. She kept'in her kitchen a fine steel knitting needle, which was always in a high state of polish. As soon as the milk came into the house' she stuck the needle lightly into she can and drew it out in an upright position. If no drop adhered to the needle that milkman heard a line of talk on watered milk that caused him to be careful how he dallied with the pump on his next visit. It is said if there be even a little water in milk not a drop of 1£ will adhero to a needle so used.—New Tork Times. Rag Carpet Bags. There is quite, a revival these days of old-fashioned rag rugs.

It Is well known that the condition of the public roads affects the pock* eta, the health, the tastes, and even the moral* of the people. The cost of transportation" affects every human being. If a producer,. It affects the value "of his products; If a consumer. It affects the price of his purchases. It costs the Western farmer as much td haul a ton of wheat live miles to market over the average road as It does to ship the same by freight from New Tork to Boston, or by water from New Tork to Liverpool. Twenty years ago it cost $lO to ship a ton of prodnce from Boston to Liverpool; to-day It costs $1.75. It is not necessary to add that it costs the Western farmer as much to-day to haul his wheat to market as it did twenty years ago, and that these prices will continue stationary so long as the roads- in their present condition. One of the alarming tendencies of the time is that our boyß and our girls, our men an...

In New England, where Germans .fro scarce and Irish abound, It is the German man who usually marries up lttto nn Irish family. The same (hlng seems to be true even in New York, where- the German colony Is very large. When intermarriage between the two peoples occurs, six times out of seven, it is the Irish woigaan who bears the children. In thft connection, the Important role In hthnle Intermixture .played by the Irish women deserves mention. One reason is surely her relative abundance. In the Boston foreign colony, With every other nationality largely ' represented by men, there is a surplus otflfteen hundred Irish females. But * second reason, also, is the superior adaptability and spirit of comradeship of the Irish woman. The Irish everywhere are good "mixers." Thus endowed, with her democratic spirit and lack of notion of caste, Irish or Irish-American womanhood bids fair to be a potent physical mediator between the other peoples of the earth. One may picture this procen of raci...

This Is the song a Farmer sang, As low in the West the sun hung i red, While over the meadow his plow he sped, Complainlnglyr thus he sang: 'The winds that blow from the north or south, And the rains from the west or east, All hasten the time of the deluge or drought; It's either a famine or feast."

FRHIPARINO FOR DRY SEASON'S... ; Dry seasons are possible any year. If on* is well forehanded id preparation for them he is a winner whether Aey come or not. There is little waste in the plans suggested by Howard Williams of Idtchfleld County in a letter to the "American Cultivator." He says; 1 know a man who makes his field corn area two or four acres larger than he requires for shelled corn, so that in case ot drought he can cut and feed Co his cows all they want. The past r summer be. fed two or three -acres/ of tlris corn and carried his- tor months on it with no diminution in the How, the cows completing a w6nderful year's record.
