PU FATA[ AND GARD3E. Urve* Ms*r aesms. Some people have an idea that it takes a lOng time to breed off horns. The fact is if you should keep a tharoughbred polled bull with a herd t''fort horned cows, the chances are you would have more than thirty horn less calves, with heads about as smooth s the thorough-breeds. If a calf is dropped with horns, its being aired by a polled bull will not diminish the t•1 size of the horns. I can tell as o-n as a calf is dropped whether it will have horas.or not, and I do not raise any with horns. I do not believe Ir'dehorning when it is so easy to bree d them off. In my herd of ffty I have thirty-seven hornless ones. Iambreed. Ing them for the milk busiese4 and have raised the most of them myself. I like them very much, and will have ten or twelve heifers between two and three years of age come in within a few months.-[New England Farmer. Ce-targ ey.

MAKING STRAW HATSh An Industry that has Attained Immense Proportions. Crude Foreign Processes and Skilful American Methods. 1 Tiue manufacture of straw hats, thcugh not peculi:r:y Amcncan, says the SNw York Commercial Advertiser, has at tained immense proportions in this country. Over in Brooklyn, in some of the quiet streets between the city hall 1 district and Broadway, are a number of straw hat manufactories, some of which give employment to more than 200 hands, besides a lot of the most ingen ious and skilfully devised machinery. Most of this machinery is of American invention. With it ten times more work can be turned out by the skilled operative than by the old hand process, and yet better wages made at less labor. The straw hat of civilization is nearly a century old, and its manufacture was not begun in Brooklyn to any extent until about eleven years ago. The raw material is all imported, and, in fact, reaches the manufacturer here in a con sidcrably advanced stage of prepar...

CUTTING DIAMONDS. The Difficult Art of Making a Brilliant Gem. American Artizans Superior to Dutch Lapidaries. "'The majority of the people who take any interest in diamonds imagine that the cutting of the stone is the most ditli. cult part," said a jeweler, '"This is not true, however. The cutting is com paratively easy, but when it comes to the polishing the most skilful work has to be done." The only diamond cutting and polish ing establishment west of New York is in Chicago, and the Mail tells what pro cesses they follow out there. "In America we are far ahead of the old Dutch process," said its Informant. ,"Here we use iron and steel machinery, while the Dutch still use the crude wooden machines. In Holland the only object is to cut a stone so as to have it weigh as much as possible. Not so with us. We aim to turn out a brilliant and beautiful stone. The value of a diamond is estimated by the amount of fre in it, and not by its weight. Not long ago we cut a four-carat stone dow...
