In this department of the dairy school they are also taught how to use the lactometer in connection TVlth the milk test, and by its use.to •determine the total solid substances In milk and to detect the adulteration of milk which has been either skimmed -or watered. This, together with theln- etruction in testing the acidity of milk and pream, occupies, as prevlous- - ly stated, about one-third of the dairy -student's time at the "Wisconsin Dairy " School. The remaining two-thirds of e '. instruction is given In practical d theoretical buttgr and cheese-mak- esslty-of^thoroughly_Jand: 3>roperly mixing a sample, ot. milk- be- ifore testing It Is clearly .demonstrated Ley comparing .the,tests of the top and fthe bottom of-a quantity of milk about .

Neglect of this simple precaution of a thorough mixing of the • sample before testing it, and failure to remember that some of the fat globules _ will rise to the 'surface very quickly, Are the causes of many surprises In • milk testing. Anyone familiar with j milk will also understand the necessity of pouring It from one vessel to another In order to evenly mix'the fat globules throughout the whole sample. If milk is stirred with a dipper or put rlnto a covered vessel and shaken .for ;the purpose of evenly^mlxing the fat, It. very often happens that some of the fat Is separated by this churning pro' iess, and an accurate test of this milk s impossible, as any. amount of pour- 'A Ing' will fall to evenly distribute this K!'thunied l fat throughout .the milk. This jproperty of the fat, to separate by agitation, should always be remembered by persons sending samples of milk by mall or express to be tested at some ipther place.

Then Miss Soldene found her cllance In opera bouffe. Her prime hit was in "Genevieve." T/hen came successes In "La Fillede 4 Madame Angot," "La Perichole" and /'Carmen."

". Here is another bit of theatrical anecdote she records: "During the rehearsals of 'La Peri- chole,' when Mr. Campbell and I made our first entrance, the carpenter's dog, a fox terrier, always accompanied us, and, wagging his tall, sat down with much gravity In the center of the stage, with his back to the footlights, and, at one particular part of my opening song, lifted up his voice and gave a grewsotne aid mostTilsmal went-on for several mornings, the dog always hcwllng at the same place, al- waya paying the same tribute to my Vocalization.

'Of dress rehearsals jhe says: , "A dress rehearsal. 25 years ago was a nearly unheard-of thing in England.

Some yekra ago, when the writer la England, he had an Introduction to the noted Sir Joseph Paxton, the "world wide known horticulturist,who declared that the then discoveries in fertilizers would result W the. possibility of a farmer carrying sufficient for an acre of land In one of his vest poeketswrlteg .H,. Stewart. In;.Country_GentIeman._. It was said by some one after that; that it might he eo, but that the crop so grown might be carried in the other vest pocket, And now for a dollar and a quarter wa may have Paxton's Idea carried out, and get a smalt bottle of nitrogen germs to fructify a whole acre of land. But seriously, are we not making too much of this little germ, when everything we know of It goes to show that we have had it always with us, and with plenty of food, some lime, and the soil of the fleld^ we can cultivate It by uncountable myriads in an old fash- Cloned compost:hjjap?^^Truly 1 _it might be~ a"mbhey making Dullness" tS"culti-~ vate this germ In this easy way and sell a big heap of compost at a dollar and a quarter-a small bottleful, which will only supply one acre. I think of the last compost heap I made. It waa in New Jersey. There were three hundred loads of half-dried swamp muck, as many loads of stable manure, and enough air slacked lime to whiten it all through. It was the departing point of my use of artificial fertilizers, of wlhlch I had become Independent after three years' liberal .use of them. This big compost heap, spread over 20 acres of land, gave me great crops, and enabled me nearly to double my stock if cows, and so Increase my manure heaps another year. It took a winter's work to make this heap of manure; but can it be doubted that this way of making manure is precisely the same as that of the ; chemists who aifp sellIng = llUle bottles or It ror ave- quarter dollars? There were the materials for breeding these nitrogen germs, of which I had abundance; for Sir J. B. Lawes, with whom I was in correspondence at the tlma^on this subject, wrote- ine that my, poor sandy land had undoubtedly moro than a thousand pounds of nitrogen to the acre. But It wanted rousing up, and this big compost heap certainly did do the needed rousing. I often think of this and study out Its results and wide applications, and feel sure that this way of Inoculating % the soil, to which my father introduced me many years ago, Is precisely what we want, now. Make the winter's work one of gathering the materials so easy tp.be got.for cultivating this Invaluable germ ourselves, and do not send to Germany for little bottles filled with them at the price mentioned. . , Corn'Culture" Bulletin 21 of the experiment station contains a report of the experiments in corn culture at the Oklahoma station farm in 189 G. The best yields were from, varieties which had be'en "grown~for"several~years!reither-in-the neighborhood or in southern Kansas. No very early maturing variety gave a satisfactory yield. In general" "the best yields were from planting in the first half of April. Five out of six plats planted with corn planter gave larger yields tlhan corresponding plats planted with lister. Except In very early planting deep planting gave better results than did shallow. Larger yields of both grain and stalks were secured 'by 'thicker planting than }s usually practiced. In the thicker planting the ears were smaller, but total weight wSjj~greater; — L A~ full,- unlforin-stand-ls believed to be one of the best helps to good yields. Sballo\y cultivation after planting gaye larger yields than did deep. A plat which had no cultivation except scraping the surface with a hoe gave a larger yield than any plat given deep cultivation. Deep cultivation while the corn plants were quite small did no harm. Level cultivation seemed better than ridging. In all cases the land had been plowed deep and put in good condition at time of planting. Planted the first week in April, corn was in good condition for feeding the first week in July. When husked from the standing stalks September 1, the average percentage of moisture In the grain was nearly 23, • Well dried crib corn usually has from 10 to 12 per cent of. moisture'.- When well dried not more than 68 pounds of ears were required to make a bushel of shelled corn. The most rapid growth of the stalks was between May 20 and June 8. More than four inches of growth was tnaide In a single day: ». The greatest growth in a week was fifteen Inches. The best yield of well dried corn was at the rate of 50 bushels per acre on upland soli. — '"" : ir "" V~~ ' Seeding Cloyer.-^As the seed of Al- Bike clover is only half the size of common red clover, from four to five pounds per acre is nearly as good as nlnexir^ten pounds usually sown of red clover. But it is better to put; on a little heavier seeding than this, as the Alslke: cloyer, perhaps because of Its small seed, is more likely to be destroyed before the plant gets firm hold of the soil. It does not pay to seed light with any kind of clover, nor yet •with grass. The space not occupied by the valuable «rop will not be vacant, for weed eeeda are always ready for Just such opportunities. Mammoth or pea vine clover, as it is of tea called, has a slightly smaller seed than the medium red clover. But it grows eo strongly that .a less amount of seed of t&e- mammoth clover will glva a seeding ci»8© eaough to exclude everything else. 'If timere .were greater liberality A trlff di^pitch !n y^sfenfay rnorn- pap^rs paid Nfv/>n, the well- known mineralogist o! this city, had jn?t return«?d to Mexico City from the mountains In the state of Guerrero with several hundred photographs of a great ruined city, taken during a ten weeks' trip. A letter addressed to David Proskey of 833 Broadway, a collector of curies, and a personal friend of Nlven'B, under date of September 27, telling of his trip up to that time, eays that Nlven had been four weeks in the vicinity of the great prehistoric city of Teuchomletlepan.- This clty r he-saya, has ft surface area of about 100 square miles. "I have dug into some of the subterranean chambers of the largest buildings," he writes, "and found them filled with broken pieces of plaster, painted bright red and white, and'on the floors beads, axes, idols and broken pottery. In an excavation which I made at a place called Quayabo I found at a depth of 9 feet from the surface, under the altar, an olla or jar of terra cotta filled with dirt and mixed with it wer 72 objects of mother-of-pearl, all perforated—Flve^ot them _were heads -Of ^klng^^vj thr:cro wns ; h i eelyr car vedj The olla, unfortunately, was~ broken by the peon's pick, but I picked up the fragments and saved half the olla intact, with the dirt and objects sticking to it undisturbed. I found also, at other places, the bones of strange animals, some of which I have preserved. I found tag ruins of twenty temples around Teuchomletlepan." It is about seven days' horseback trip from Chll- panzingo, where the letter was written, to Mexico City. The dispatches printed yesterday said that two temples and two great pyramids had been found. The pyramids of-Mexico are the foundations of the temples of the sun and moon worshippers, and In them the antiquarian finds much that is curious. There were two ways of .making a pyramid. One was to build It from a level with rude clay bricks on the Inside, while the facing was of atone, ranged like steps. Pyramids of found, were hills smoothed down till their tops and bases were square, or rectangular, and then faced with stone and topped with a building, with an altar rising above ft. .When the Spaniards came they drove the natives up Into the temples from the city about it. Then the Spaniards tried to.follow, but climbing up the slope in the face of the enemy was impossible. The pyramids were usually In dense forest's.— New York Sun. • l@&t then tfcey are.— Character Told by the Ilulr.

Straight hair is the sign of. a firm, positive and practical disposition.. Such bad qualities as treachery and jealousy are generally found in people with black, lustreless hair. The lighter the hair the more sensltve and "touchy" the owner generally Is. Brown hair must be a very desirable thing to possess, for the hair readers say it is always found on people having in a hjgh degree common sense, good Judgment and reason; Red hair is a sign of honesty and also of "cleverness.
