Owing to the! great-variation .in the monthly cost of milk'production^!! fltrt'iuk for^any extended period would'-probably" shift .production 'to'jthe'more profitable months. If the price of milk fluctuates approximately Vith the cost of production, the'distributor's supply is atitomaticaliy regulated^.tlje jniUr producer's market is protected,'and the..consumer is assured .of;'a •normal supply of milk throughput the year. '. ' ; . .' ' • ' ' .'''.'• ; The bulletin confirms'the opinion held among 'dairy farmers of'the great importance of pasture in milk production. The feed^the summer months in which pastures are good is occasionally, only one-f'purth. ot that in'certain winter months when' large amounts of .farm-raised : 'aiid* i purchased feeds are fed. " '' " ' : .' ''" " '"''•"''•' ^ ' ^ The amount of man labor involved in the production,of milk is cpn,' j; siderably less in the summer months than'in the winter months.'.I .is true whether based'upon the : total amount of labor -used'on ihe "Try some of my bread: Daddy" :'--''. -si v-i'i ' : , .-••••-,-J<~ Valier's Enterprise flour is made for those who appreciate extra .pW.results in homebaking: It is milled from only the choicest four part of the higK- est grade wheat, by a^gecial, slow, silk-sifting process. It is BO far superior to ordinary flour that.-only. -a trial can , make- you realize'the difference.'

Proper-significance of-this reduction in labor, is appreciated'taty j-when attention'"is drawn to the""fact'that $iese savings in laWoc^ir I': during-the pasture season, which'coincides 'with the crop season, when tie |,-maximum labor is needed in the field. Aside from man labor, feed suSd horse labor, the expenses of producing milk,-are .more or less'fionstimt throughout the year. When all expenses are included the net cost of'pr6- dueing one hundred pounds of milk in June is sixty per cent of .the year cost, and in December about one hundred and twenty per cent. - "'" With a fluctuating seasonal cost, it is expected that farmers wilj tend to concentrate production in the more profitable months. " As the urhaa | ^ trade"demands a constant supply of milk .throughout the'year;'the pri^e I • of milk must fluctuate approximately with the cost of production in order j to prevent an extra shortage at one time and a large surplus at another. In.other words, a properly adjusted fluctuating price for milk throughout the year protects:the farmer's market and the distributor's: and'con- sumer's supply. • • • '•'"••-' Arabian Plant Produces ~ 'Seeds That Cause People to' Behave Ridiculously. \ ( \ ^ .•^5. In Arabia there is a plant w.h.ose seeds produce effects similar to those caused by iBiighing gas. The natiyos dry the seeds and reduce them, to ' powder, a small dose of which has curious effects.

But nature has given it a long, and pliable neck, and, according to a writer in the ]S T ew York Herald, it uses the upper part of itself like a flail, swinging its heck round and round, and brings its bead down / at each swing with a thump ou its antngom'st. The other combatant uses, precisely the same tactics, and the two animals, planting themselves as firmly as possible by stretching out all fotir legs to the utmost, stand opposite to each other and hammer., away with their heads- until one or the other has had enough.
