MANAGEMENT OF COWS. An KnffllHll Writer Aclvocaton Patloat Anlmiils nnd Kind Trentmont. The following plan of management detailed liy an English writer is generally good. Most of us, however, will not agreo with his advice to change mUlcors.- lie says: Good practical management soon finds out tho cows that aro good milkers and too soon wo hear of the cows that ore tough to milk. You may mark them down as bad milkinjr animals. I quite . believe in the plan of having each cow's milk weighed, but the want of sufficient and intelligent milkers is an obstacle. The milking should be done as quickly as possible, caro being taken to annoy tho cow as littlo as can be helped. Careless and slow milking soon spoil tho best of cows and put them difficult to milk for others. It is a good plan to chancre the milkers at every milking, as it accustoms the cow to different milkers. The cows should be managed quietly and spoken to gently. From calves they should be so treated that they will have nothing to fear from their attendants. Halt of the nervous cows one sees have had the life frightened out of them by bad usage. Where cows are abused by bad- tempered milkers, and where, as 1 have seen, a good cow's tail broken at the rump by a blow from a byre stool, we need not be surprised ifisome cows are nervous aud quick when they sec a stranger. Cows being driven by vicious dogs also makes them scared, and I make it a practice not to allow a dog near cows. I have seen some dogs that could be allowed to gather the cows, but only in rare instances, and that where the cows have been reared to it. One qtiick cow in a herd -may do alol of harm by startling others. When one cow starts the alarm generally the whole crowd follow. Everyone who •pays close attention to the milk yield will find that when -cows have been alarmed and running, as when for instance they break out rtJ the field, it diminishes tho yield of milk. This is why I advocate qiiiet-tempefed cows and kindly treatment. THE BACK OF A BOOK. Must Be a Fine New Dress, Else It Will Not Sell. Women'the B*»t Artl»t»—M«- Whitman, »I1M Alice Mow wid MI» M»rg»ret f ArmitroDK 1>md In tb> Art of Cover ICOPTR1GHT. 189S.1 O AMERICANS buy books or bindings?" .was the question put to a New York publisher, who answered e vasi.v ely : •'Yes,"andtben proceeded t o explain: .."A -book that l»-ii fad -will sell under any cover, and the., cheaper the better. But holiday books .or new editions .-of -old works must be put in ., attractive ..bindinjrs or the average purchaser will pass them by unnoticed. The demand for attractive, covers .with odd'.designs .is.: increasing, too, and this has so magnified the importance of the designer that some publishers have instituted the practice of permitting him to put his initials in a conspicuous place on the cover, thus giving recognition to the artists who have hitherto blushed unseen and unknown, while the fruits of their labor have gone out to con•tribute to the glory of those who wrote and illustrated the body of the book. This seems no more than fair, for if Americans want pretty books, as well as those that arc well written, it is right that they should know who the artists are that make them so." The field of book-cover designing is being rapidly covered by women. They seera to have a special aptitude for it, and'have been remarkably successful. A frequent comment upon the attainments of women is that they do their work quite as well as men. Until recently this has been the acme of the average woman's ambition, but there have always been those who have longed to excel man in his own field. To such it will be sweet to hear from the lips of one of the other sex the following comment upon woman's work in an important branch of the designing art: "It is beyond question that the most successful book-cover designers are women. Mrs. Whitman, of Boston, Miss Alice Morse and Miss Margaret Armstrong, of New York, have made a ATTHEGHOST-HOUR THE FOREST LAUGH ALICE M. MOSKE'S SIGNED COVER. reputation for cover designs which no other designers, men or women, have reached." Mrs. Sarah W. Whitman, of Boston, was the first woman to succeed in the art, and, to her belongs the credit of leading her sisters intp a new field of industry. She did her first desig* about twelve years ago for Houghton, Mifllin & Co. and was so successful that they have-used her designs ever since. In reply to some questions addrc^aed to her on the subject oi her own experience, Mrs. Whitman says; "I have been making book covers for about twelve years. My most successful design was most probably Dr. Holmes' 'One Hoss Shay,'which was bound in leather. But I think my best work so far was the design on the new vellum- bound edition of Hawthorne's 'Marble_ Faun.' Some of my most recent ones are: 'The Story of Christian Eochefort,' 'Timothy's Quest,' Celia Thaxter's 'An Island Garden,' 'A Eoadside Harp/ete. "In the matter of taste, it is not necessary to cater to the public, but it is possible to use one's best judgment, artistically,' and the public will rife to it. A versatile book-cover designer can make a good living, and, in general, women are quite as well paid as men of equal attainments.'' Mrs. Whitman's characteristics in designing are strength and simplicity. She can make one solitary figure,do duty for the entire cover, without any appearance of bareness. In her design for Dr. Holmes' "Over the Teacups" she has simply used for a subject the teapot which was an heirloom in Dr. Holmes' family, having been presented to his great-great-unclo, Henry Flynt, an instructor in Harvard college. This teapot with the title in gilt letters and a tiny border around the edge forms the sole decoration for a very attractive Perfect health is maintained by expelling from the body the decayed product of 1 stipation.with the terrible results following- the absorption-of er—>^ - «•» • LEMON TONIO I.AXATIVE.

The design is merely a row of conventional flowers and stems. Other successful designs of her handiwork have been for new editions of "Snow Bound." "Song of Hiawatha," "Hanging of the Crane," "Dorothy Q," "Song of the Ancient People," "At Sundown," etc. Miss Alice Morse is a young designer in the field, but she has taken rapid, strides in her chosen work since, lier frraduation.from Cooper She served under Mrs. Canai who was at the head-^vi--;,vuv^ bureau of arts at the world's. <air, -ast covers and illustrations and?>p|!X!L?B>>graving*, and received a medai*hihrhul- ploma for her own work shown there. She has done designing for the Harpers, Scribners, Dodd, Mead & Co.,. Century Publishing company and other well known publishers. Her aim is originality rather than mere decoration, and h er. designs are less easily recognized as a •woman'* work than some of the prettier designs of other artists. A recent design of hers for a translation of Paul Heyse's "At the Ghost Hour," in three volumes, is extremely original, and has a touch in sympathy with the subject matter which Mrs. Whitman herself might be proud of. Faithfulness to the PRIZE DESIGN BY HELEN M. ARMSTRONG. subject of the book for which the design is made is another characteristic -of Miss Morse. For instance, in making tho cover for "On Newfound River," by Thomas Nelson Page, she introduced dolphins into her designs. "Marse Chan,-" by the same author, is ornamented with Virginia creeper; "Meh Lady," with yellow jasmine; "Our Home Pets," by Olive Thome Miller, with conventional parrots; "Phantoms of the Footbridge," by Craddock, with pines and guns. Another elaborate and decorative design of Miss Morse was done for a recent edition of Charles Reade's novels in octavo form. When at Cooper Union Miss 1 Worse took a prize in designing. In anintervicw with Miss Morse, she said: "The difficulty in book-cover designing is the necessity of carrying out a theme in all its details in a very limited space. A design should contain something symbolic of the subject matter, and no artist can make a thoroughly good and correct design without first reading the book which it is to ornament. "The. remuneration which one re* ceives for book-cover designing alone is not sufficient to make a. comfortable living notwithstanding the fact that the best paid workers receive from fifteen dollars to twenty-five dollars for a single cover, because, though there are many new books issued in a year, comparatively few of them have new designs. Mrs. Whitman is probably the only designer who makes her living wholly by designing book-covers. Nearly all book designers supplement their income by side issues, which, though not so high in the artistic scale, rnoii MKS. wniTJiAS's PENCIL. ''Miss M,argafef "jTeilson Armstrong, the third of the trio mentioned at the te-nnning, is a young- woman whose natural ability has been greatly aided by the art atmosphere in which she has lived. Her father, Mr. D. Maitland Armstrong, was for many years with his family a resident of Italy, and Miss Armstrong's early life was passed in an artistic atmosphere. Her first work was done while she was connected with the Tiffany Glass company; after that she made some successful covers for Harper & Bros., and later for A C. McClurg & Co., of Chicago; but probably her most successful work has been done for Charles Scribner'a Sons. Her designs are characterized by versatility, adaptability and reasonableness, both in ornament and the color scheme suggested. The publishers are always able to use her designs exactly as drawn, as the design is complete in itself, showing the .kind of_material, What is Castoria 1» Dr. Samuel Pitcher-* .prescription for InCu»t« and Cbildien.

The Ox Eot Attsln§ It» Development la » I'ecaUar Way. We all know that there are parasites In human society whose crooked ways geern almost past finding out. They always manage to live on the labor of others, and sometimes seem to thrive by this means. The prototypes of these persons are found in the animal world, and it is the ways of one of these prototypes that I propose to trace out. This individual parasite is the ox bot, though not generally known by this name. In fact, when I looked over the exhibits of the Smithsonian institution at the world's fair, I was unable to find anything relating to this insect for the simple reason that I did not know it by this name, nor by its scientific name, and I was unable to find anyone who could.five me any information in regard to it. It was only after addressing Dr. G. Brown Goode. curator of entomology,' Smithsonian institution, Washington, D. C.. that I was able to obtain any description of the rhsect- The main facts here .noted were obtained from an article written by C. V. Riley, l j h. D.,. which Dr. Goode sent me. The most that is known of this insect by most people is that during the lav tcr part of winter and early spring hard tumors are found on the- backs of cattle, which, upon pressure, will give forth a. grub. This grub is the larva, of the insect and is nearly an inch in length. It was generally supposed by scientists, until quite recently, that the larva reached this position by being hatched from an egg that was inserted in the skin by the fly, or was at- tached.to the hair and hatched in this place from which it made its way in some mysterious m-ianer to where it is found. That it was in any • way related to the bot fly, the larvas of xvhich infest the stomachs of horses, was not dreamed of. . . After a series ol observations, extending through many years, it has been, discovered that the fly attaches its ess usually to the heel of the cow or ox and is. removed and hatched by the animal's licking Itself at tbo timo it sheds its coat. The larva is veiy minute at first, only about one three- thousandth of an inch in length. It is provided with hooks by means of wiiici it is able to cling to the tongue ami roof of the mouth. Its development.^ vcrv slow, for in November, and later, it is found clinging to the esophagus, only about half, an inch long. About this time a moulting occurs in which.it loses most of its hooks, which would be a hindrance- to it in traveling. .It now commences a long and slow joor- ney, boring through the tissues to the back of the animal where it is found in. the latter part of winter. In passing- the query might be started as to the character of the pilot that guides this pest in its vivisecting tour through an. ocean of living flesh and tissue to* safe anchorage in the harbor, tho lumbar region, of poor "Mulley." Cases have occurred where the -eggs of this insect hare been introducfca into the human system, and batched, the larva having been found working- about under the skin. A case occurred. in the practice of Dr. Sylvanus Freeman, of Smithport, McKcan county, Pa., who was called to attend a cni!2. 4 supposed to be suffering with erysipelas. The child suffered with pain snch. as to prevent jts sleeping at night. caused by something working under the skin. This worm, or "polywog," as the mother called it, had been noticed five months before near the ster- nal end of the -right clavicle. It had traveled up and down the chest in. front, down the arm to the elbow, ana- over one side of the back. Similar cases have been observed in Norway among persons who have had the caz» of cattle. • These larvae, on reaching the back: of the animal, bore through the skin to the air. The spiracles, or breathing 1 holes, are at once enlarged, and here it lives for several months. It then. crawls from this situation, frills to tbo ground,' where it lies in the chrysalis state from three to six weeks, whem the fly, about half ao-inch long, of'-a- dark color, more or less densely clothed with yellowish-white, reddish and brownish- black hairs, crnerges.
