Not M»de—Import rnnc* of Partner »n<l Clothen—Kemarkabh Gyration* and Genuflection* Mu«t B4 Stadiad to Bccoiua a Winner. A good cakewalker is born, just lik< any other artist, writes a St. Louis expert. A man can learn to cut up antics, go through funny movements and win applause' from an audienct that wants to b« amused, but unless he is endowed by nature all thesi qualities will not make him an artist If a fellow wants to be a cakewalker, being first equipped by nature, h« should ge: his eagle eye out for a lady. It makes all the difference ii the world what kind of a partner you have. See that she's good looking has fair skin and hair not too kinky The wavy-haired maiden is the mosl attractive and the most precious, too. Let her demonstrate to you that she can do anything on two feet, from the pasmala to the minuet, though I don'l mean to say that the pasmala is allowed in the refined Cakewalk. It is not. It. is too sporty, and we always bar it. But all these little things lend grace and experience to the walker, and the more of them she knows the better. Rehearse frequently with your partner. Show her bow to smile when your jaws begin to crack and agree on the best way to salute each other. Watch the audience on this point. See which poses they applaud most and then play the favorites for all they're worth. The various twists and turns in th« Cakewalk are not parts of any regulai dances. They are ingenious contrivances of our own. When a couple come on and do their little turn, they go through what we call a solo. Then we have the chorus walk, the individual's specialty, the hoi polloi chorus, or the one where all hands mis in a general scramble for exhibition honors, and the genteel gyration ol geniuses or the chorus of all stars. 1 usually lead and act as manager of the entertainment. I think the beat dress for a man cakewalker is the swallowtail or the Prince Albert. Sometimes the overcoat is worn with good effect, and a cane gives a fellow an opportunity to find a place for his hands and adds grace and dignity to his bearing. A silk tile is the proper caper, especially on a well-formed man. It makes you look nice and shiny, shows ofl your style and gives you a chance to get in some fine salutations, bows and courtesies with your lady. I always use it. It is indispensable to a first- class walker's outfit. Patent leather shoes are the best for the feet, and th« more diamonds you have the greater your chance to make a killing. Evening costume is the proper thing for ladies. A cakewalker makes from $6 to $15 a performance. 1 get the biggest divvy for managing the affairs. If £h« business does not become slack it's the best thing in sight for a graceful walker. St. Louis has the best colored dancers in the world, the cream of the profession. Contests are decided on these points: Keeping step, making straight turns, costume, refined facial expressions, well-matched couples and original movements. March music is the best, unless for solo work. 1 am twenty-nine years old, and take to the cakewalk like a duck to water, I am a shampooer and Turkish bath expert. I have travelled with minstrel shows, done theatrical turns and been in everything on the stage; so it comes natural to me to win out in a cakewalk battle. I've been chasing the dough, eatable and financial, for nearly ten years, and I'm going to keep at the game as long as it p&ys. Small Bet Nobly' Paid. Lord Falmouth—who bred horses, knew a'l about them, and had had £01 trainer that paragon, John Scott—never bet but once. He had a promising filly, Queen Bertha, and she was the favorite for the Oaks in 1862. She had apparently fallen off in condition, and her owner put no confidence in her. Falmouth was inclined to scratch her, when Mrs. Scott, John Scott's wife, spoke up for her favorite: "I'll lay your lordship sixpence she wins," said Mrs. Scott, laughing. For once Lord Fa 1 mouth broke his rule never to bet, and exclaimed: "Done, Mrs. Scott!" So Queen Bertha, with Tom Aldcroft up, appeared at the post, and, thanks to the brilliant riding of her jockey, beat Marigold by a short head for the first>plaee. Lord Falmouth paid his bet to Mrs. Scott in noble fashion. He procured a brand-new sixpence from the bank, had it set. round with diamonds and mounted as a brooch, and in that form presented it to the comely mistress, of Whitewall. Divorce Be-cmme She Te»cd Him. TV. S. Scott, of Centreville, Iowa, •who ran for United States Representative on the Populist ticket in the Eighth district, brought suit for divorce from his wife because she teased him about his defeat until his life became endangered. Judge Sloan refused the divorce, saying he did aoi consider the fact that Mrs. Scott had teased him would so undermine plaintiff's health as to endanger his life. Solid With the Harkimem, There are various ways in which ministers may become popular -writh various cla*s«s. Th« Rev. Myron R*«d of Denver sajs: "I am popular with the haokmen of tiis city becaus* I am rapid at a funeral. I do not •want to free*" them to d*ath." THIS KNIGHT WAS BOLD. Sir I.ambtom Lartrine'" T*o Gr«?»i Day* Recalled. Sir Lambton Loraine presided over a meeting of Baronets, held in London the other day. The downtrodden and oppressed Baronets have banded themselves icio an organization tc maintain their right of precedence over the younger sons of Lords "and sicb" and to generally brush up tJi« respectability of their order. While Sir Lambton was fussing ibout "precedence" and such nonsense, how the news from America regarding the Cuban situation must have made him think .of the days of his youth, when as a young man of 35 he swept into Santiago de Cuba and saved the lives of Americans, defying with his little gunboat'.the whole Spanish Power. The Virginius had been captured and the people found on board of her by the Spanish had been tried by drumhead court martial and were being shot in the plaza of Santiago, Captain Loraine steamed into the harbor, and landing his men, marched them to the place of execution. "Stop the shooting!" was his order. "Oh, we have shot all the Engrish; we are only shooting Americans now," replied the courteous Spanish commander. "Never mind, stop the shooting!" replied Sir Lambton, and added, quoting Admiral Tatnall, who helped the British at the battle of tha Peiho River, "Blood is thicker than water." The shooting was stopped, and Captain Loraine protected the Americans until "Albemarle" Gushing came in with an American man- of-war and took charge. Soon after, at the request of the United States Government, Captain Loraine brought this ship to New York where he was received with salutes and honors aiid tfce freedom of the city presented to him. The silver miners of Nevada sent him a silver brick inscribed, "To Captain Sii Lambton Loraine—this is a brick, and you are another," and other presents and addresses were given him. He is 60 years old now, and will probably nev«r again have as stirring an adventure as he did that day when he steamed into Santiago- de Cuba nor such a day of glory as the day he steamed into New York. MODEL DAIRY FARM. MILK FOR DELICATE STOMACHS The OriRiu •* tU« Matin. The origin of the Mafh* dates back to the time of the Princess of the Swab- ian line and the catastrophe which ended the reign of Charles, Duke of Anjou, on tht; island; in other words, to the date of Sicilian Vespers, Easter Monday, March 30, 1282.' While the French, who , were masters of the island, were holding festivities a Scilian bridal train passed by. A French officer named Drochet, under pretense of searching for arms, used the bride rudely, and was stabbed to the heart with his own sword in the hands of the bridegroom. The Sicilians at once drew their stilettos and murdered th« 200 Frenchmen present. The populace ran through the city crying "Death to the French!" JBveo the churches proved no sanctuary, and -all the French on the island were slaughtered, without distinction of rank, age, or sex. The number that perished is estimated in all at about 800. These words .then became the motto of the islanders: "Morte alle Francese Italia anello." (Death to the French is Italy's cry.) The initial letter of each word, M. A. F. I. A. spells t,he modern and common n»me of the dreaded island society. Onr Butter la Kmropo. Europe has thrown back on the liands of American exporters a few lots of butter recently shipped across the Atlantic. The return of this creates a ripple, but must in no wise discourage the efforts to build up our foreign trade to large proportion*. One lot came back because originally shipped in packages objectionable to the English trade; another- lot of cheap butter, which probably should have been kept at home, is returned for a better market. But there is a lesson in the incident. In order to greatly extend the foreign outlet for one of our greatest staples, the keenest discernment must be observed, all the way from producing the milk and converting it into butter, to the final placing of the product on the European markets. Butter from our western, creameries will yet secure a permanent foothold abroad. tf«thod» Kmployed i»a DoKalb. Ill, F«rm for pr«xtacl«|! fare Milk. DeKalb county, Illinois, has a model dairy farm, which has attracted considerable attemion from different sec- lions of the country. The entire milk output of the farm is utilized for the requirements of cursing mothers and invalids. The methods and processes by which absolutely pure milk is produced are said to be different from those of any dairy in the United States. Last fall a delegation of physicians from Vermont visited the farm in order to acquaint themselves with the plan followed and authorities from other sections of the country have been likewise interested. The farm embraces 360 acres, four miles southwest of DeKalb. Here is k.'pc a herd of 100 crossed Jersey, Hoi- stein and Durham cows. The first precaution taken on this farm is to be sure that a cow is free from disease. Before she is permitted to run with the herd she is treated for tuberculosis. They are pastured as long as there is grass, after which they are fed on selected dry food. This consists mostly of ensilage, by which term is known a mixture of corn ground up fine •with, the cob, husk and stalk and then stored in silos. The ensilage is dampened as it is packed and it said to form the most nutritious of cow foods. The cows are milked at 3 o'clock in the morning and at 3 in the afternoon. Each cow upon being stabled is cur- Tied. The man who does this work is not allowed to do any milking. He is followed by another employe carry. ing a pail of water and a huge sponge with which he thoroughly cleanses the udder of each, cow, after which she is ready to be milked. The milkers are all dressed in spotlessly clean uniforms of white duck- and no one is allowed to begin milking until he has washed tris hands and donned his uniform. The milkers carry two pails, into one of which the first three or four spoonfuls of milk are forced. This is rejected from the food supply. The remainder of the milking is turned into the other bucket, which has been constructed after a special design. The top of the pail is provided with a straining contrivance made of two layers of muslin, between which has been placed a layer of fine cotton batting, The milk passes through this strainer into the bottom of the pail, from which it is poured through another strainer of fine wire, fixed into the top of an eight-gallon can a row of which stands outside the barn waiting to be filled as the milMnx of the herd progresses. Each cow in the stable is numbered and as she is milked the product is weighed and the amount in pounds is credited to her on a daily sheet pre- pa'red for the purpose. Each cow is charged with the number of pounds of food she consumes, The big cans into which the milk has been strained are carried to the separating room, where, .by machinery, the milk and cream are separated in order to ascertain th« per cent, of fats and also to further cleanse the product. The milk i« then run into the cream again and afterward cooled. The milk is then bottled in quart bottles, which are sealed with the date on which the product is bottled, indicated in the cap. The bottles are placed in a box, covered with a thick layer of cracked ice and in this condition the milk is received and delivered in Chicago. One thousand pounds of milk is taken from this herd at a single milking and the whole of it is consumed by Chicago babes and Invalids.

Bees gorge themselves with honey, then hang themselves up in festoons' or curtains to the hive, and remain quiescent for hours; after a. time wax scales appear, forced out from the wax pockets. The bees remove these scales with their natural forceps, carry the wax to the mouth, and chew it for a time, thus changing it chemically. Thus it may be seen that, wax-making is a great expense to tht colony, for it costs not only the time of the workers, but It is estimated that twenty-one pounds of honey are required to make one pound of wax.

Increase of population in Belgium.— While Prance is congratulating herself on the increase of her population over her death rate—a condition shown by the last census that had not been equaled'for many years—Belgium has come out with most remarkable figures concerning her population. The last national census in Belgium was completed in May, 1897, and its figures have just been made public. Within the last ninety-five years the population of Belgium ha.s doubled itself, rising from 3,000,000 to 6,000,000. But the records of the larger cities make a still more interesting showing. Antwerp in a century has risen from 53.000 to 257.000, an increase of 3S3 per cent. Liege has advanced frosi 46,000 to 160,300; Ghent, from 55,000 to 155,000; Brussels, from 66,000 to 187,000. TEE HORSE. WORK IN BY DEGREES. When Mnncles Are Soft Cnre -Will Pfevent Many DixabilitleK. Horses that have little to do throughout the winter must be worked la by degrees. Their muscles are soft and need special care to prevent galled shoulders and other disabilities. Heavy Bhoes, with long, sharp calks are worse than useless on soft ground and earth roads. This fact is so self evident that it is surprising to see how little It is heeded. Shoes with low -calks or none at all, and heavy enough to wear four or five weeks are all that is needed. Some horses will not drink if water is offered them, before their morning feed. This is generally the result of having been given water icy cold or none at all. But if a horse is allowed to drink his fill soon after eating the food is washed, undigested into the intestines. A horse that will not drink before eating should be made to wait at least an hour after. Water frequently while at work. Leave the fetlocks untrimmed. They are put there to protect the heels, and if cut away scratches, mud fever and cracked heels are likely to ensue. No horse can pull as much or as well when checked up as he can with his head free. To Slop a Runaway Home, Some device, by means of which fractious or runaway horses may be controlled, has long been needed. The great difficulty is that one may know of a most excellent check, but it is sure to be in the harness room or hanging on the hook in the barn when it is most needed. One objection, to. all such attachments is the necessity for an extra line or cord by means of which the check is to be operated. A simple appliance consists of a couplt of small pads attached to the sides ol the bit and connected over the nos» ol the horse by an appropriate and simple band. These' pads bear directly upon the nostrils. When Mot in use they merely touch or rest lightly upon the nose. The extra rein when pulled Upon steadily presses the|e pads into the flexible skin over the nostrils, and partly shuts off the animal's breathing powers. No horse can run any distance without taking breath, and th« result is almost immediate confusion and suffocation that, brings the animal to a slow gait or a complete stop. The greatest care must be taken not to pull too long on this line, as the horse may empty bis lunga and fall from exhaustion. It is desirable tha,t the pads be so arranged that the nostrils will not be entirely closed, as, in inexperienced or excited hands, the animal might lose his life before the driver could recover sufficiently to releass the strain on the stoppers.

The first step in teaching horses ia to adopt some words at the sound ol which they are apt to understand they must stop. Words that are easy to speak and which can be made emphat- i ic should be chosen, such as "who," I "whoa." etc., and every time the word , is spoken should be made to obey it carefully. Carelessness in regard to this matter will do more to undo what has been taught than anything else. When a horse fully understands the meaning of the word which you use when you wish him to stop and stand still, the greater part of the work is accomplished. He then could be trusted with safety while you leave him a short time. To take no risk, and make the risk more effective, it is a good plan to get into the vehicle to which the horse is hitched, and having stopped after a short drive, one should get out and leave him for a short distance. Should the horse then start the one in the vehicle can draw the lines suddenly, and thus prevent his getting away. • There will ha no trouble in teaching any horse with, an ordinary amouat of good, common sense to stand as long as you desire without, being hitched, if a little judg 1 - ment and patience are used in attempting it TO THE KLONDIKE Valuable Information for Persons Going to the Gold Fields.
