THE JJPFEfe „ MS MQtNES; OOTOBEK 25 180©. QUALITY AKJ) NEWS. FAME ANO EXCELLENCE ARE D'ETERMININO FAC-TORS IN SUCCESSFUL bEVELOP- MENT. One of the Important Functions of High-Class Newspapers. In presenting interesting phases ot scientific and economic problems, high-class newspapers frequently give information of as great value in their advertising columns as in those devoted to the publication of the principal events of the day; and when the fame of a product is extended beyond its natural limits into foreign lands, and a large demand created throughout Great Britain and her colonies and the principal seaports and cities of Europe, Asia and Africa, It becomes a pleasant duty to note the fact and to tell of the points of excellence on which so great a success is based. We refer to the now world- famed laxative remedy, Syrup of Figs, the product of the California Fig Syrup Company. The merits of this well-known excellent laxative were first made known to the world through the medical journals and newspapers of the United States; and is one of the distinct achievements of the press. It is now well known that Syrup of Figs Is an ethical proprietory remedy, approved by the most eminent physicians everywhere, because it is simple and effective, yet pleasant to the taste and acceptable to the system, and not only prompt in its beneficial effects, but also wholly free from any unpleasant after-effects. It is frequently referred to as the remedy of the healthy, because it is used by people who enjoy good health and who live well and feel well and are well informed on all subjects generally, including laxatives. In order to got its beneficial effects, it Is necessary to get the genuine Syrup of Figs, which is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only.

CMAPTlftS POfi OUR RURAL READERS. flow Sacceftufol frftrmera Operate This Department of the Farm—A Jrew Hints ag to the Cafe of Live Stock and Poultry. Poultry Note*. The time being near when many of )ur readers will be shipping poultry ( io market, it may not be amiss to call their attention to a few things the market 'demands. As most people are aware by this time the heads should not be cut off of fowls to be sent to city markets. Neither should the in- jtestlnes or crops be taken out. Also the killing should not be done In the old-fashioned way of wringing the neck. The 'killing must be done by opening the veins of the neck or by an Incision In the mouth that will allow the fowl to bleed to death. * * * Whether the bird is to be scalded or dry picked will depend on the market to which they are to be sent If the trade is local scalding Is still used and Is probably preferred. Some people insist on having birds that have been picked after scalding. When the birds are to be turned over to shippers who Intend In turn to send them to the city markets dry picking is in order. If the birds are to be scalded It is recommended to have the water near the boiling point but not actually boiling. This is supposed to make the feathers easy to pull without cocking the skin. As a matter of fact we doubt very much If there Is any particular rule that is popularly followed. Most of the fowls that are scalded are scalded In water that Is already at the boiling point. There is of course great danger of allowing the birds to soak in the water. An expert advises to dip the birds in the water four times, and says that that Is enough. The dipping should be done by holding the bird by the head and legs, so they will not be dipped into the water with the rest of the bird. Dipping in the head turns the color of the comb and affects the appearance of the eyes. * * * By proper feeding many of our fowls that are marketed about holiday time could be marketed two months earlier, while prices are better. Late in the fall so many fowls are thrown on the market that the prices go down to a point that gives little profit. The feeding of some stimulating foods early in the career of the chicks would have started a 'habit of growth that would have continued to have its influence all through the summer. Even at this late period the generous feeding of meaty cut bone will help the growth greatly. If that cannot be had, give dry cut bone, which can be purchased on any market. Feeding meat, where it can be had at low price, is certainly a good practice. Push the surplus birds along and get them out of the way before the market begins to fall. If more birds were fitted and sold in the late summer the consumption would be Increased, and the total average price for the year would be better. As it is, many city families go without fowl during the season of very high prices. They do- not make it up during the season of low prices. It is of no advantage to the farmer to have prices high at the time of the year when he has nothing to sell. * * » The legs and head of the fowl should be dry picked, and after the picking has been completed the fowl should be immersed for a few seconds in boiling water and afterward plunged-into cold water. This is to give the body a plump, firm appearance. Those that follow the practice of dry picking, do the work while the bodies of the birds are still warm, as they find the pick- Ing much easier to do at that time. When they are to be picked for a long journey, or are not to be opened at once, the birds must not be packed till the animal heat has gone out of them. Turkeys should always be dry picked, as the appearance Is very much better when handled that way than when scalded. Ducks and geese should always be scalded, end the scalding will have to be for a longer time, as it takes more time for water to penetrate and loosen the feathers of a waterfowl than of a land bird. Some farmers practice picking the geese and ducks before killing, so that the feathers can be saved in the best condition, but this is not advisable, as it leaves the flesh in an inflamed condition, which makes the fowls hard to sell on the market. Although chickens may be singed to take off the hairs, this should not be done with ducks or geese. On account of water birds having a large amount of oil in their skins, the application of heat gives them an oily appearance, which does not help their sale. The feathers on the head and upper part of the neck should not be picked off. After picking the other feathers the ducka or geese should be plumped in hot water after the manner of hens. State Control of Milk Testing, The growth of the custom of paying for milk various prices in proportion to its fat content has been rapid of late years, but the system is not yet universally adopted, says the New York Produce Review. Willful variations of the test must be totally abandoned, and those inaccuracies which occur by reason of improper machines or appliances must in some effective method be overcome. The most effective way to prevent inaccurate testing, which may occur willfully or by reason of faulty apparatus, would be by the enactment of proper state laws, compelling the registration by competent state authorities of the apparatus used, the license of those making the tests, ana the pro-vision if penalties fof & false report of tests made. Laws touching upnh some of these points hate been eriActed in Iowa and Vermont, with good results, and the matter is worthy o! Consideration by legislatures of all dairy states, in Vermont it appears that since the enactment of the law relating to the testing of milk and cream the State Experiment Station has tested 9,564 milk and cream bottles and 1,165 pipettes, and that of the old glassware, in use before the law was enacted, nearly 4 per cent was found to be inaccurately graduated. The effect of the law has been to make a material reduction In the percentage of inaccurate apparatus. In Vermont those who test milk or cream for the purpose of determining its -value are obliged to take out certificates; of those .applying for certificates since the law was enacted 241 received their certificates while 31 were refused; thus nearly 12 per cent of those who wanted to do this work, and to whose ignorance or knowledge milk- sellers would have been obliged to submit for a Just payment, were declared Incompetent to perfom such work reliably and prevented by law from inflicting the results of their Ignorance upon the public. Uncterlat Origin of Flavor. Probably in no department of research is a greater amount of investigation going forward and valuable data and actual discovery being made than In dairy science; and while some of the discoveries have been of little or no value, a wonderful amount of useful and practical material has been placed in the hands of the dairymen, says Mark Lane Express. Among the new things announced, since it has been shown how nearly ferments and flavo»s in butter are associated, is that If certain acids are added to sweet cream it is not necessary to wait for the development of lactic acid bacteria in the cream, but that It could bo churned at once, and churned quite readily, and the true flavor secured. Investigators have been at work on this problem, and an announcement of the results has been made. The most satisfactory result came from using hydrochloric acid diluted in twice its bulk of water, and adding this In small quantities to the sweet cream. Everything was satisfactory, except that the butter had no aroma, though it was pronounced fair and good by the judges. The butter kept well, and had a water content of 12% per cent; but the low flavor was against It, though not a trace of acid was to be detected, or found by analysis. About the most important thing brought out was that butter seems to be fully dependent upon bacteria for true flavor, rather than the food, provided that the latter Is wholesome and not of a character to Impart obnoxious flavors to the milk, which after all could not be called butter flavor In any sense of the word. To Prevent Bovine TuljerculoslH. The International Congress of Veterinary Surgeons, held recently at Baden-Baden, agreed to the following suggestions as to the prevention of tuberculosis among domestic animals: "1. The prevention of tuberculosis in cattle is urgently necessary. 2. The extinction of bovine tuberculosis by the owner (voluntary extinction) Is practicable, and should be inlversally aimed at. Dangerously tuberculous animals should be slaughtered as soon as possible, and calves and healthy animals protected from infection. Voluntary extinction of bovine tuberculosis should be encouraged by the state disseminating correct views respecting the character of tuberculosis, its modes of infection, and the importance of tuberculin inoculation. Voluntary extinction should be supported by state grants. The best means hitherto known for the diagnosis of tuberculosis among domestic animals is tuberculin. Tuberculin should only be supplied under state control and to veterinary surgeons. 3. Prevention of bovine tuberculosis by the state is desirable. If undertaken with caution It can be carried out, will check the further increase of the disease, and gradually stop it. The prevention requires: (a) That veterinary surgeons be obliged to give notice of every case of proved tuberculosis encountered In practice. (2b) The immediata slaughter of dangerously tuberculous animals (particularly those affected with mam- mitls, tuberculosis of the uterus or intestines, as well as pulmonary tuberculosis), compensation by the state, and the prohibition of the return of buttermilk from the co-operative dairies to the farms before sterilization." Feed Consumed for 1,000 libs. Live Wuightj It is sometimes asserted that cattle and sheep require the same amount of feed per thousand pounds of live weight. This statement seems not to be well founded. In experiments conducted at the Iowa Experiment Station the cattle consumed 19.6 pounds of dry matter per thousand pounds of live weight, against an average of 29.07 by the sheep. Both sheep and cattle were on full fee*. The sheep made a daily gain of 3,73 pounds per thousand pounds live weight, and the cattle 2.14. In summing up this comparison, we find that while the sheep ate 48 per cent more than the cattle, they also gained nearly 76 per cent more,—C. F. Curtlss.

A MAGNIFICENT WOMAN Holds Up Pe-ru-na as the Ideal Remedy for Female Catarrh, Mrs. Clara Mnkcmer. Mrs. Clara Makemer, housekeeper for the Florence Crittsnden Anchorage Mission, of Chicago, writes the following letter from 302 Chestnut street, Chicago: "Peruna Is the best tonic I have ever known for general debility, a sure cure for liver complaint, and a never failing adjuster in cases of dyspepsia. "I have used it in cases of female irregularities and weak nerves common to the sex, and have found it most satisfactory-" From early girlhood to the end of the child-bearing period few women are entirely free from some degree of catarrh of the pelvic organs.
