Facts like iese have inade Hood's Sarsapatilla imei-ica's Greatest Medicine and en- leftred it to thousands of homes scat- fcred all over this" broad land. "We like to tell what Hood's Barsnpa- illa has done for us. Our four children bad diphtheria. From the very first our tittle boy Ralph, then seven years old, was very sick aiid f or several days it seemed as if he -Would never be any better. After a •while he began to improve and in a few •weeks,was able to go out, although weak and miserable. Then, gradually. All Strength In His Limbs gave out. The physicians told us it was paralysis, which sometimes follows an attack of diphtheria. We did everything for him, but he grew worse until he was in a pitiful condition. He suffered terribly at night and complained continually of his head, and in what little sleep he was nlilc to get, moaned unceasingly. He lost all control of the muscles of his body and limbs. He had no appetite and complained of feeling slck'at his stomach all the time. After we had tried t many different remedies and had about given Up all hope I M-e commenced giving him Hood's Sarsa- j parilla. In a short time he ceased to complain, his appetite improved and at the' end of three months he was able to attend school a part of the time. Now he is well and quite a strong and rugged boy. You are at liberty to use this testimonial if you Aesire, as we feel wo cannot say too much in praise of Hood's Sarfcaparilla as a blood purifier nnil building up medicine." MRS. R. E.

How SnccCRsfnl Farmer* Operate This Department ot the t'atjn—A Few Hints as to the Care of Lire Stock and roultrjr, WlRconftln Dairy School Notes. Ten weeks of the three months' term of the Wisconsin Dairy School havo now passed, and students as well as instructors are becoming so well acquainted and thoroughly interested in their work that they are loth to part. The present class of 116 students, mostly from Wisconsin, but many from other states and Canada, is the largest attendance in the history of this school. The dairy school building was designed and equipped for the accommodation of 100 students, at an expense of about $40,000. Past experience has shown that for various reasons some few students are always obliged to leave before they have completed the course, and In anticipation of this 115 were allowed to enter. We were obliged to ask about twenty more men who applied for admission to wait and come next year. Some have already registered for next winter's term, and any one wishing to enter the school is advised to apply early for admission before our accommodations are filled. Creamery and cheese factory operators are about equally represented in numbers in the present class. * * * Scarcely a year passes without the introduction of some new Ideas In butter and cheese making. This year, In addition to the usual instruction given In practical butter making In the creamery cheese making in the cheese department, milk testing in the laboratory, and milk and cream pasteurization in the pasteurizing room, the Wisconsin curd test for detecting milk injurious to the quality of full cream cheese, has been explained and used constantly by the students. Pasteurizing milk for butter making is also a new feature of the instruction this winter. During the past summer we made considerable butter from cream which was pasteurized after separation, and then ripened with a commercial starter. This butter was packed in the Australian boxes as well as the common sixty pound tubs, kept In cold storage until winter, and has been inspected by the students now at the echool. A complete outfit for pasteurizing tho milk and skimming It while hot, as well as Instruction In ripening the cream from such milk and making the butter from It, has been added to the equipment of the school this winter. Mr. H. B. Schucknecht of Minnesota has been with us a few days and given the students the benefit of his experience in this line of work. » * * Although these continuous pasteurizing machines, which will heat from G,000 to 10,000 pounds of milk per hour to the pasteurizing temperature of 155 degrees F., are not primarily Intended for pasteurizing milk or cream to be sold directly to the consumer In pint and quart bottles, a practical test was made of the keeping quality of tho cream and skim milk that came from the separator at this high temperature. Pint samples of both the hot cream and hot skiin milk were taken directly from the separator and cooled In the sterilized glass milk jars, which are commonly used for retailing milk to the consumer. These samples were cooled at once to about 50 degrees F., the jars were covered with paper caps and left in a room at a temperature of about 65 degrees F. Six trials were made In this way, by taking samples of the hot skim milk and hot cream directly from the separator on six different days. It was found that these pint samples, kept in sterilized bottles, remained- perfectly sweet in every case for four days. Some were sweet after five days, but most of them had a slightly sour smell and about 0,3 per cent acid on the fifth day. * * » An experiment on mottles in butter was made by adding some of the ripened cream from one large vat to each of three churns, two of them box churns and one a combined churn and worker. The granular butter in one box churn was washed with water having a temperature of 40 degrees F., and in the two other churns the temperature of the wash water was 60 degrees F. After standing in this wash water about ten minutes a part of the granular butter from each of the two box churns was taken out, worked without salt and a 20 pound tub filled with butter from each churn. The remaining granular butter was salted, worked and a tub filled with the salted butter from each churn. The next morning these five tubs of butter were examined. It was plainly noticeable that the tin- salted butter from both the 40 degrees F., and 60 degrees F. wash water was of a perfectly uniform, even col or, with no suggestion of mottles or wavy color, but their color was of a considerably lighter shads of yellow than that of the salted butter. AU the tubs of salted butter were slightly mottled and uneven in color, but no difference In the amount of mottles could be detected between that from granular butter washed with water ol 40 degrees F. and the one in which the temperature of the wash water was 60 degrees F. The mottles, were caused by the salt alone. B. H. FARRiNGTON. Madison, Wle. Too little attention is paid to the poultry range, which w@ often cajl a poultry yard. It is the custom of farmers to think that the yard Is n thing of little moment. On farmi where the poultry have the run of the whole place this article does not apply. But there are many farms and perhaps should be more, where the.u.ou.1- tvy ftre kept shut up through a good pert of the season. In such a pay to give a range BO large that- Ihe fowls will not be able to eat alii the grass that grows oil It There Is tto economy in restrlctltig the range and feeding grain. Grass is one of the cheapest feeds that can "be fed. Just how large the range should he will depend on many things. One of these is the richness of the soil and the, luxuriance of the growth of grass on it. We have seen new lands that had, Just been redeemed from a scrub oak forest, where the soil Was so thin that a small flock of fowls would In a few. weeks completely denude of grass a' large yard. But if the land has been cultivated and has a good blue grass sod on it, and is in thriving condition, it is safe to say that the area will sustain In fair condition three times as many fowls as the yard spoken of, as being reclaimed from a scrub oak forest and left with nothing but the original nondescript grass on It. Suppose you give an acre of land to fifty fowls. Will it not pay? We think it will. In the first place the returns from it will be without cost to yourself. There Is no plowing, no sowing, no cultivating, no reaping and threshing. Almost the entire returns will be profits. The grass that grew on it will have been turned Into meat and eggs. The hens will keep healthy, and the saving to the life of the flock will be quite an item. Then, too, most farms are • so situated that the giving of an acre of ground for such a purpose is not a great matter. In many cases it would remain partly vacant anyway. As to fencing the yard, this need not be a great question in this age of cheap wire. The larger the lot the less will It cost to fence it per square rod. Thus, if a lot be two rods long and two rode wide it will take eight rods of fencing to go around It. But if the lot be four rods long and four rods wide It will take but 16 rods to fence It. If it be eight rods Wide and eight rods long It will take only 32 rods to fence it. On this presumption the first lot will be 4 rods in area, the second 16 in area and the third 64 rods in area. Four foot woven wire fence may be purchased at 40 cents per running rod. On this basis the first lot will cost for fencing each square rod, 80 cents, for each rod will require two linear rods of fencing. On the lot that is four rods square the cost for fencing each square rod will be 40 cents, as each square rod Is fenced by one linear rod. For the third lot tho cost will be only 20 cents for each square rod. So we might extend the figures. If the lot were 16 rods square the cost would be 10 cents per rod. If it were 32 rods square the cost would be five cents per rod square. If the lot were 64 rods square the cost would be 2% cents per rod. A lot 128 rods square would cost l 1 ^ cents per square rod. Finally if the lost were 256 rods square the cost would be only % of a cent for every square rod of land. This shows the economy of great operations. The big lot is the cheapest, everything considered, and this is especially true in the fencing. Of course we do not suggest that anyone build a hen yard 256 rods square. The figures are given to impress the truth of a great principle that we cannot afford to Ignore. This is one of the great reasons why it would be desirable to keep fowls in large Hocks were it not that they are more likely to become the prey of diseases of a contagious nature. A large range Is always desirable, but it is difficult to have a large range without having a large flock of fowls. In some yards the large range furnishes the fowls with a goodly supply of fresh meat in the form of grasshoppers. It Is astonishing what a large number of these Insects inhabit a single acre. If the acre patch be exhausted by the industry of the hens, a few hours suffice to replenish it; Not only grasshoppers but hundreds oj varieties of bugs and worms infest and jjourney through this field, falling a swift prey to the feathered sentinels. With the green grass and fresh meat the fowls are kept healthy and happy and continue to manifest their content by a voluminous product of eggs. Gernmny uiul Amerh'Hn Foreign correspondents report that the Minister of Agriculture of United Germany at a recent session of the Prussian Diet declared that American horses developed influenza after importation, and If the importations increased, Germany would be forced to adopt suitable quarantine measures to protect itself. Dr. Salmon, the chief of. the United States Bureau of Animal Industry, said when his attention was' called to the dispatch: "So far as the Department of Agriculture is aware there is no influenza prevailing In this country. It is a disease common to horses, and possibly may be present in places of which we have no information, but this is improbable, because news of that character would promptly reach the department. The horses which are exported are not inspected, but if an animal has the disease it will recover or die before the transatlantic journey is made. The period of duration of the disease Is about two weeks, and as it takes from two to three weeks to ship the animals across the ocean it is apparent that all danger is passed by the time the other side is reached." The growth In the shipment of American horses to Europe in tho last four years has been enormous. These shipments in 1897 aggregated in value $4,769,265, as against $718,607 in 1S93. After all, there are few fowls more successfully handled than the Plymouth Rocks, on the ordinary farm.
