T is possible to make good butter in hot weather without a cellar ami without ice, but a good well is essential, writes Kendall Perry in Honse- keeper. There should also he a milk house, or, at least, a roo£ set on tour good uprights, and a tank r long trough that may be cov- ,, - ed. Discard the shallow milk pans and get the tinner to make deep pans with lids, or, if you prefer, make a cloth cover by stretching muslin over a hoop the size of the can. 1 like this method because it keeps out all dust, but does not exclude the air The trough connecting the milk tank and pump spout may be a home-made one, or you can buy iron piping for the purpose. Fill the tank at least twice a day. The water, as it warms, neec not be wasted. Ours passed through iron tubing into a watering trough in the next yard, wher'e"it was used for the stock. Our creamery cans hold three pailfuls of milk. They are skimmed as they are set'in the tank by the feminine portion of the household, but are always lifted in and out by the men. By keeping the cream pail in the lank a£d stirring the cream after each skimming, a good, uniform grade is always assured. Use a churn from which you can draw the buttermilk without lifting. Banish forever the old-fashioned dash churn and the washing of butter by hand or in a butter bowl. Use a thermometer, and churn just when it registers the correct degree. Do not try to get butter in ten minutes by hard churning. I do not begrudge fifteen or twenty minutes. When the butter comes in small granules like shot or peas, drain off the buttermilk, pour in a pailful of cold water, move the dasher briskly from side to side, but do not churn,, or you will have the butter in a compact roll. .Drain off this first water, add another pailful, repeat the washing, then take up the butter, salt it very thoroughly and work it with a cool paddle. When the salt has thoroughly permeated the butter, work it a second time until no brine flows from it. Sometimes it is better to let it stand over night before working it this last time. Pack it tightly in sone jars. Preventive AKH!IIB| IJlucklcR-. For several years frequent reports nave come to this bureau concerning the great mortality from blackleg among young stock in many widely separated districts of the United States. In some of the Southern and Western states especially, the annual losses from this fatal disease have been so great as to equal or exceed the losses of cattle from all other causes combined. These losses have been particularly felt by the progressive stock owners, as by far the largest percentage of the calves which became affected were either full-blooded or highly graded animals, which seem to be more susceptible to this disease than the ordinary common-bred stock. As the continued existence of this disease has a very detrimental effect upon the cattle industry in general, and especially upon those stock owners who, through untiring efforts and great expense, have endeavored to improve their herds, an investigation has been made by this earn oalf two doses of highly attenuate!] blackleg virus, with an interval of •m days between the inoculations. The rst inoculation is made with a very illtl vaccine, the so-called "first vmph." and the second one with, the tronger virus, the "second lymph," nrt in each case the vaccine is intro- uccd by means of a hypodermic yringe under the skin of the lower >art of the tail. This method, which s very inconvenient, esneclally where i large number of animals are to be rented, was later modified by a German scientist, Kitt, who reduced the process to a single injection with less attenuated virus, and who chose the oose skin on the side of the chest just )ehind the shoulder, for the point of noculation. Kilt's method has been adopted to a very largu extent In eastern 'Europe and northern Africa with very satisfactory results, and it has for that reason and on account of its simplicity, been taken as the foundation for the investigations made by this bureau. A "single vaccine" has been prepared in the pathological laboratory and subsequently tested on a larg number of calves in Texas, both com- | mon and high grade stock, and the results warrant the conclusion that this vaccine is in every way satisfactory. It is desired, however, before distributing this vaccine to stock owners in general to obtain a record of several thousand successful vaccinations. For this purpose a quantity of vaccine will be distributed' to such parties as may desire to make preliminary vaccinations and report the result to this bureau. Those slock owners will be pre- 'erred who already have experience in ,-accinating stock toy blackleg and are n possession of a vaccinating outfit. Explicit instructions will, however, be sent with the vaccine to secure uniformity of operation and to assist those without previous experience in vaccinations. Persons lacking the necessary outfit to test the vaccine should procure one if they propose to test the vaccine. It consists of a graduated 5 c. c. syringe with detachable needles, a small porcelain mortar and pestle, a glass funnel and some niters. This outfit cannot be supplied by the department, but must be purchased of some house which supplies such articles.* Upon applying for vaccine please answer the following questions: 1. To what extent does blackleg pre vail in your part of the country and how great is your animal loss from this disease? '>. What experience have you had in vaccinating calves against blackleg? 3. How many head do you wish to vaccinate and what class of cattle aro they, common, graded or full blood? 4. What is your express office »The outfit is prepared in accordance with the plans of this bureau to meet the temporary demand that may arise n introducing this vaccine. If vaccination should be extensively adopted as a preventive of this disease similar outfits will, no doubt, be for sale by other dealers furnishing this class of supplies. Until this may be the case, the unusual course of mentioning a dealer by name in a department publication is followed. D. E. Salmon, Chief of Bureau of Animal Industry. Approved: James Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture. hat the men starved the po-^v fowls •which was the cause of this voracious eagerness for rations from the house int now I know it is nothing but devilry, pure and simple. Again, no sjon- jr is a hed nicely made than some evil- minded biddy, possessed with the spiril of the father of lies, selects tha. particular place for a nest and deposits aii egg. a good thing in Us place, but not a suitable decoration for a sleeping apartment, and having accojupllshed this feat, off she goes raising a racket that sets the housewife's nerves a-tremble. About the barns and feeding pens it is the same story over again. When the horses are fed a dozen clamorous fnssy hens gather about each feed box and a good large share of the tired horse's dinner goes to appease their Insatiable appetites, to say nothing of the injustice of disturbing the honest equine laborer during his short interval for rest and refreshment. "With pigs, cows and sheep it is the same; the ever present hen must have a share of their food as well as ot everything that can he picked, plucked or stolen all over the farm. Then if a particularly nice set of harness is hung carefully to itself, that set of harness is the chosen roost of some half dozen enterprising chickens and the results are'distress- ing. The family buggy, too. is not neglected, and the Sunday reflections of the family about starting for church would lot make good reading. I have also lad another object lesson along dilfer- nt lines, hut still connected with the loultry. A writer in a late Colorado laper has the following: "Uecause a man is a man, should he have all the FLASHES OP FUN. "She is a decided brunette isn'l she?" "Very. They say her husband ean't call his soul his own."—Puck. "Is it any fun getting a man to teach you how to ride the wheel?" "Fun! Why I've been taught three times."— Life.

There is an old "gag" about tbose brutes, farmers, shooing, dogging and stoning the chickons away from barnyard and feed pens, that I am heartily tired of and would like to see suspended beside the picturesque cabbage head of ancient tradition, writes Cora Hawkins in the Texas Stock Journal. Nothing in the way of a lesson is quite as effective as an object lesson and such a one has been my portion this present season. Heretofore screens have kept the larger fry and the old hens from gardens and out of mischief. Bu tnis year we eschewed such luxuries good things of this earth? Must he mve the horses, the cows, the .hogs and sheep, and then have the chickens, too? Shall he not then have the whok> earth with a barbed wire fence around it?" fimR was when the farmer's wife had :he proceeds of the poultry yard for pin money and she sometimes flew high with the results of sales of eggs ana spring chickens, but now, somehow or other, the chicken money goes into the family purse, which IB, nine times out of ten/ controlled by the "man of the family;" that uncrowned monarch who grudgingly doles out to those who have done their full share towards earning the available finances such pittance for household requirements and their own personal expenses as ho in his wisdom thinks ought to be enough for them. Not all farmers, it is true, grudge the money their wives spend, and tie proportion of those who recognize tftat their matrimonial partners arc entitled to a share of the rewards as well as the trials of their mutual business is, wo are glad to say, increasing; but if the men could be for a short time in the places of their hard-working, patient wives and realize how hard it is to lave to ask for every cent of spending money, thai would be an object lesson hat would be worth millions of dollars o the women of our agricultural districts and make life easier and pleas- anler for them for all time. Uronils KunnliiB ToscUier. When the hatching season ends the different breeds can run together in one flock, says American Poultry Keeper. It would be an advantage to have no males with them, but it will not injure the stock should the males and hens be of different breeds. Some breeders contend that when a hen is kept with a male of a different breed her pyogeny will never again be up to standard requirements in points, but we have never known any injurious results from such a course if 'the breeds are separated two months before the eggs afe to be used. We have known of the separation of the breeds to occur only ten days before using the eggs, and in the experiments made we found the influence of the male to extend only five days. We advise more time, however, and suggest two months, in order to bp sure that no mistake will occur. It 1, expensive to keep the breeds separatc< vcopleucxt door immt be queer." •Why."'
