Her mourning followers, blinded by her glory, looked down into tha gravo she had loft, and behold! it was full of snow-white lillics, which they gathered reverently and planted in memory of her. But of all flower legends those most popular in Germanic countries arc connected with the forget-me-not One refers to tho creation of the flowers. God had named thorn one by one, but tho little bluo flower had been neglected, so it lifted Its tiny head in humility and whispered; "Forget me not" Tho Lord then named it in its own words. Another legend says that two German lovers were walking by a stream, 'gathering flowers for tho bridal wreath. Tho bride longed for a bluo flower growing ia the water; the bridegroom, trying to reach it, was carried away by ttte current Throwing the little flower on tho bank, he cried: "Forget me not," and sank.

Writing from Now Jersey a dairyman says: A cow giving twenty-five pounds of milk a day while being fed at milk- Ing, fell off to a quarter of that weight in three weeks by having the time of feeding changed, and being milked by other hands. Both exerted their special influence. But what was unusual was the regaining the former quantity of milk by ag-aiu receiving tho former ration at milking- time and being ugaiu milked by tho accustomed milker. Another cow that had yielded a largo daily quantity of milk, having greatly fallen off in her milk, was fed at milking times, and, though milked by tho same man as formerly, regained her usual flow and quantity of milk. The ration at milking time must have brought the change. A largo Shorthorn cow owned by a milker and distiller was fed a good, rich slop at milking time every day, which caused her to fill a large pail, so that the froth overflowed tho pail. This cow, at tho death of the milker, passed into the hands of a neglectful party and soon dwindled to a poor milker. The experience of those owning extraordinary milkers will bear testimony to the good effect of liberal feeding at the time ol milking. The family cow, generally, ia thus fed, and the average family cow is the largest milker. Tho contentment of a feeding cow causes her to give down her milk In free and full measure. Kind treatment, at the samo time, is paid for in milk. Cows thus managed will, doubtless, pay a larger percentage of animal profit than any other cows not thus fed and treated. Many of our best dairy cows ore injured by rough handling. MILKING IN,THE STABLE. A I'ractlce which Mai Many Polnti In Iw Favor. We we asked if we would milk in the stable in summer. Tho objection is often rnado to milking in the stable that it Is close, hot and dirty, and that the open yard is preferable, even with its annoyances of running cows and flying milking stools. To all this we think these valid answers: First, cows need some kind of an extra feed, of either a soiling crop or a Httle grain, daily, for there are not thirty days in the year when a feed of some kind will not pay, and the stable is the place In which to feed It Then the stable wants lots of windows, and a cheap screen over them does not stop the circulation of air and one IB not smothered by any means. The Practical Farmer has hit on several things that help—not new and are of value. The cows oro let In the yard for five minutes each time before going to the stable, and that saves about all the summer filth objected to. The cows are fed their dish of oats just as noon as milking begins. As fast as a oow is milked she is loosened and sent out of the barn; then one does not have a hot cow with swinging tall at her back. In the yard is a large tank of water, and the cows, in addition to what they drink In the pasture, take two more drinks from this long box, and are ready to go to the night or day pasture as the ease may be; and In this way by having each oow have her own Blaoe la the stable, »pd tednr tha IIow a Fevr Acre* Can lie Mad* to Pay a SatUfwctory front Villagers or persons who have but a small acreage will find the following plan a good one if they desire to economize their space, which it is very often necessary to do, and always a good practice. I propose to plant a piece of ground fourteen by six rods to pear and plum trees, setting them about one rod apart each way, which will give six rows with fourteen trees in each, or eighty- four trees in all. Around this I shall construct a fence of wiro netting six feet high. Just on tho outside of this fence I build a chicken house largo enough to accommodate about two hundred hens (Plymouth Rock and Buff Leghorns), having tho north side on the line with and forming part of the fence, and the south or front side freely exposed to tho sun. The hens are allowed free ran^o of this orchard — chicken park — and I expect tho chickens and trees to bo of mutual advantage to each other. The hens furnish nearly or quite all the fertilizers the trees require, while the trees will provide shade for tho chickens. We are thus ranking good use of the ground while the trees are stnalL After they once come into bearing, with fairly pood care, you have a right to expect largely increased profits. Pears and plums are seldom if ever a drug on the market. The chickens are also of great benefit in preventing the depredations of the curculio. We also keep boes, and thus add another element of profit and mutual benefit— F.W. Brooke, in American Gardening. Making Sugar from Carrot*. It is quite possible to make sugar from carrots, and, indeed, carrot juice contains more than ninety per cent of saccharine matter. As carrots are ox- pensive abroad, foreign siiffar manufacturers prefer beet roots. Very few people know that cows' milk contains about five per cent, of sugar. DAI RY~ SUGGESTIONS. No MORE cows should be kept than can be handled properly. IT generally proves a poor me-at to purchase a poor cow. IF you expect to have well-behaved cows learn to treat them decently. THE offspring of over aged or poor cows should be turned into good veal. AT no time should tho cows be allowed to shrink in milk on account of food, WHEN there are lice on cattle apply one part chloro-naptholeum to 100 parts of water. Apply once a day, soys a writer.

When we do learn the exact truth concerning them, we shall be in a better position than we are now to undertake the management of milk itself, the making of butter, and, in particular, the msnufaotnre of cheese. In connection with the latter especially there is too much charlatanism. Our future practice vfill be very largely controlled by tne correct answer which, no" doubt, will eventually be given to the apparently simple question: What ia milk?

M. In Dark Canyon, about three miles from Eddy a number of tunnels were run in order to tap streams of water to get a supply for the water works.

It is hard to understand how sucn an erroneous idea came to be generally accepted. —Not long ago a crow from Oregon was examined whose digestive apparatus contained a beetle of a species so rare that tho specimen would have been worth $15 if it had been in good condition.

Commonly the only portion of the turtle discovered in the stomach of the bird is the shell from, tho under jaw. Accordingly, for each such remnant the crow under dissection is credited with one tortoise. —Stamp dealers acknowledge that there is a marked need for an international stamp that shall work both ways between the countries belonging to the postal union.
