The Home Circle Where is the stream of life so dark and unpropitious that the sunshine of a happy face falling on the turbid tidd will not awak- en an answering gleam? Parents often say "I live for my children." They should do more than that—they should live with their children, letting their boye and girls feel that their in- terests are thei- parents' interests also. What is needed most of all in bringing up children is example. What they see and hear and take in by absorption in their young years, will, in most cases, become the ruling traits of their lives. A room without a couch of some sort is half furnished. Life is full of ups and downs and all that saves the sanity of the men- tally jaded and physically ex- hausted fortune-fighter is the periodical "good cry," and mo- mentary los? of consciousness on the upstairs lounge or sofa in the sitting room. There are times when so many of the things that distract us could be straightened out, and the way made clear, if one only had ...

For the Farmer What The Jersey has Done. Cow Previous to the importation in any considerable number of Jer- sey cows into this country, nine or ten pounds of butter per week 1 for the best cows was considered a remarkable record. When the little Jersey cow began to spread all over the country, twelve to fourteen pounds of butter a week was thought to be marvelous. I The Jersey increased and grew rapidly in favor from one end of j the country to the other, and now 22 to 26 pounds of butter a week for the Jersey oow is ac* ! cepted as a matter of fact, and from 900 to 1,000 pounds of but- ter u year for a good Jersey cow is rather looked ft r than wonder- ed at. And so we see in these record-making movements the: tremendous advances that have j come to the butter dairy industry by the introduction of the Jersey into the United Sta'es. What would we do without the Jcisey cow is as hard a proposition as what would we d j without elec- tricity to run our interurban cars To go back to the...

CITY PLANNING FOR YOUNG CITIES o * Value of Trees to Cities and Towns. Paris, Tex., July 20. In every place which carries a postmark there are moving, pro- gressive spirits who realize the economic value of trees and shrubbery, but who lack a tech- nical knowledge of "the how" and "the why." The general interest in shade trees as a factor in civic adorn- ment has much to do with Mr. Kessler's wonderful success as a city builder, and his methods and precepts may be well copied on a smaller scale in the village, town and small city which can not afford his services. Shade trees add greatly to the desirability of a community as a place of residence and their val- ue in an esthetic and sentimental way can not be computed in the cold, business value of the dollar sign. Too much stress can not be laid on the care of trees from the time of placing the order with a local nursery or some traveling repres- enative of a foreign establish ment. It is in no sense my aim to "knock" nurserymen, al...

For the Farmer Science In Cotton Grow- ing. Of all staple crops, cotton has perhaps received less attention in selection, breeding and other im- proveraenis to accelerate econo- mic production. Can it be that cotton farmers are less progres- sive than those who make a spe- cialty of growing other crops? Much progress has been made in corn improvement. The Illi- nois station succeeded in increas- ing protein content of the kernel about two-fold and the oil nearly three-fold. This was accomplish- ed in 10 years' breeding and shows the wonderful possibilities of plant breeding. Other sta- tions have made marked improve- ment in corn. Practical growers all over the country have in- creased the yield of corn by se- lection and by cultivation. Wheat, oats, barley and rye have been improved during re- cent years. Much scientific and practical work of economic value has been accomplished in fruit growing, vegetable growing and rice growing. The cotton plant has not received enough atten- ti...

■ A ROPE OF WATER. Bertheht's Test That Showed Its Tensile Strength. THE COHESION OF MATTER. Perfect Planes of Metal or Glass When Brought Into Contact Will Adhere to One Another as Though They Were Glued Together. It is well known that liquids are among the least compressible of sub stances: this lu spite of the fact that they have the properly of conforming to any shape of vessel or of yielding to any forces, no matter how small, which lend to change only their shape Thus, to squeeze water into nine- tenths of its volume under ordinary conditions would require a pressure of no less than 3,000 atmospheres, or 45.000 pounds, to the square inch. This property of being almost incorn pressihle is best illustrated perhaps by an experiment tried centuries ago. wherein an attempt was made to com press water by tilling a leaden shell with It and then, after closing, ham mering and squeezing the shell. The only effect of the tremendous pres sut'es produced In this way was to cause the water...
