Marcla Gordon was sixteen years old
when the Spanish Am, : an war broke
out, and a more ardent little patriot
did not live In Huntersvllle. It was
natural that she should love her country, Hor father and grandfather inul
fought for Uie Onion in Iln* civil war,
mnl on the brlghl April morning in
1888, when the Huntersvllle rifles
marched away to join  iln' balance i.f
ti.e regiment at the state rendesrous,
her brother, scarce three years her
senior, wan In lis ranks, Furthermore,
Boyd McCarron also wore the blue
and as first duty sergeant stepped off
blithely at the bead nf Uie sturdy column of fours.
McC'urron nnd Marcla had lieen
friends and comrades nil their lives.
Their mutual liking wai trembling on
thc verge of something deeper and
more enduring when iln* declaration of
■war swept the young mui away In
the camp where the stats troops were
Cited for tlie coming campaign.
MrCarTon. who bad been clerk Iti
Brown's clothing store, was a tine,
manly young fellow anil n natural soldier, lie liked the pomp and circumstance of war, the drilling, the music,
the thrilling pause at "retreat," when
•very head was bared iu reverence
while the colors were slowly lowered

They were dancing in n circle on Iho

With n sudden sick horror and yet
■with a thrill of joy, too, Marcla, straining her eyes through the gloom, saw
McCarron dart from lhe walk into ill*

She must have fainted lu her chair,

bruised and senseless, lay on the cotieh

of professional cheerfulness was speaking to her father "Unconscious just

The points In the operation of n
cream separator by the farm dairyman,
given iii their order of Importance as
bearing on tlie quality of the work, are
summarised as follows by an authority
on l.uttei'iiiiikiiig:
First.—The speed of the separator
must he uniform and up to the standard required by the makers of Unit
particular machine,
Second,—The temperature of the milk
should he such as wiil make It flow
readily; the warmer It Is the inure perfect will be the separation.
Third.—The amount of milk that is
run through the machine should remain constant ami should not be 1 ii-
ereiised over Unit which is Intended for
Uie machine.
Fourth.—The machine should be set
on a solid base or foundation, no Unit
there will be no Jar or "disking about
ns It Is turned, SUCfa as would tend to
Interfere with the even (low of the milk
through the bowl and thus destroy its
efficiency in skimming,
Fifth.—The separator must be kept
thoroughly and scrupulously clean,
particular care being taken that none
of the tubes through which the milk
flow becomes olistruet.il In any way.
Sixth.—The t.*st of the cream can he
readily changed by changing either the
cream outlet or the skim milk outlet.

The Tnr Trade.
Tlie fur trade of North America has
always been hugely conducted on the
principle of barter, writes Duncan
MacArthur In the New England Mag*
nr.lne. The transactions with the Indians nre carried on In a very simple
manner. When a hunter brings In his
collection of furs to any trading post,
he usually does twice ii year, in
October and March, he Is taken to the
trading   room,   wh. ie   the   official   in
charge carefully  examines,  da
and  values  each  skin,  and  when  the
wh lie pa. k Is goUS over he hands Uia
D  n  number of tallies, or small
l of wood or metal, each  representing the value of a "made beaver,"
and  the whole representing the value
of the entire catch.    Tlie  Indian then
pi      reds to the storeroom and selects
su, li articles as be requires—blankets,
- guns, k: nacco, etc.—
in payment for which he hands back
Hies until Uiey are all gone and
Hrchaslng powers are exhausted.
He then departs, another hunter takes
his place nini is dealt with in a similar
manner, nnd  so on  until  all the  furs
In possession of the Whole band of Indians have passed inlo Ihe hands of the
trader.   Formerly it was customary to

Best Method of Killing the Anlmsl—
How to Insure a Clean Carcass—

of the Carcass and When It Should
Bo done—Cutting the Mutton Into
Proper Sires For the Table.
Farmers' IlulleUn No.    IS-!,    United
States   Department   of   Agriculture,
gives the following explicit directions
regarding tbe killing and dressing of
a sheep on the farm :
Much of the sheepy flavor of   mutton comos   from    thG   genera lion    of
no. 1—WASNF.it or STicstxo a snusp.
gases In the stomach after thu sheep
is killed. Kor this reason ihey should
be dressed us rapidly as possible. A
platform six or eight Inches high Is a
convenient thing to work on, uml aids
In   keeping  tho  blood  away  from  the
body, Insuring a cleaner   carcass.   ,\
clean dry place Is n—ssary for lout
work. Water or blood on the wool
makes It v ry dltncult to dress the
animal nlrely.
Killing—If the sheep Is an old
one It may be stunned before bleed.
Ing.    If a young one the same purpose
is serve.i by dlolocntlng the nock after
cutting tho throat.   Tbis is accomplish-
no. s—"naoiyo OCT" a surrp

the   platform,   with   Us   head   hinging
over th I   Ciasp the chin In    tbe
left haul and stick a knife through the
neck. Just back of tho Jaw (fig 1 . Thi
cutting edge of the knife should be
turned toward the spinal column ami
the flush en: to tl.e In...'. In this Stay
It Is possible to avoid cutting tbe
wind pipe.
Skinning—Split the skin over the
back of the front legs from the dew
claws to a lltti,. above the knees (fig.

from brisket to chin. Starting It sllght-
li on Iho Sldee of tin* neck. Split the
Skin over the hack of the hind legs to
the middle nu,* ami skin the buttock.
The skin should also be raised over

be mods to skin thn legs   above   the
hock until after the WUTSSS Is hung
up Hang the sheep up by tin. hind
legs ami split the skin over tli*   middle
line. Start at the brisket to "flst off
th,- skin. This Is done by grasping
the edgo of tho pelt flrmiy In one
hamI. pulling ll up tight and working
the oilier with list closed helws'i'n Hn*
pelt and Iho body (fig ill. The "list
ing off" should he downward over the
fore ipi.ittois ami upward ami backward over the hind quarters and tegs.
It Is unwise lo pull down on tin* skin
over the hind legs as the moinluiin
covering tllS flesh Is sure to be ruptured and an unsightly nppc.r.nc.'
given tO the carcass.    The wool nil..uld
always be held sway from   the   flesh
for the sake of eloiinlinoss Thc skin
on the logs should bo   pulled    away
from tbo body rather thnn toward It
tn order to prcs-no the covering of

loosened over the sides nnd bnck It
should bo stripped down over tho neck
and cut ofT .lose to the ears. Tho

Pruning Dewberries.
Tho most common way of managing
dewberry plants is to drlvo a stake
three or four feet high between two
hills nnd tie the young canes from each
hill to the top of thc stake, cutting
their loose ends hack to about one foot
above the strike. Tho fruit Is then
borno above the new growth, kept
clean and cm h3 easily picked. The

Cheap Hotbed.
A cheap nnd easily made hotbed
much ln use by extensive growers may
bn made ns follows: Cut all the posts

boards on, allowing them to project nn
Inch over tho end posts: then nail In
the end boards, which give a level top
when set up. When the bed Is set up
ready to fill, one side Is filter], resting
tho posts on blocks or bricks, which
gives the necessary slant to carry off
the water when the sashes are placed
on. This bed gives very satisfactory results, but of course is not a "thing of

n.lng.  to Think  About—The Milker
la lhe While Hall.
An Important thing in connection
with milking Is the condition of the
hands and clothes of the milker. The
milker should be clean personally and
should be required to go nbout his work
In cleau clothes. The milking should
he done with dry hands. The habit ot
some milkers of welling their hands
wilh milk Just as Ihey begin Is a filthy
practice and the cause of much bnd
milk and poor butter. There Is something lu thc presence of a milker lu a
white suit that calls for clean work,

Muny dairymen require their milkers to
be dressed ln white.
The same principle Is true In regard
to whitewash on the Interior of the
barn. A carefully whitewashed wall
shows off cobwebs to their disadvantage, and they will usually be removed.
There Is something out of place If part
of a building is kept clean and fresh-
as a whitewashed wall, for Instance—
and other parts are a mire of filth.
Whitewashed walls go with clean Boon,
and the two with a white (lad milker.

Nothing eats up butter faster than
discomfort and fear, because they
shrink tbe butter fat and so make their
milk, which Is steering the butter Into
the manure pile Instead of Into the
churn, says J. V. Von Nott lu Hural
New Yorker. Therefore have warm
floors and warm stables. A cow cauuut
run a furnace an.l a churn with tho
one feed. Another butter eater Is tlm
stanchion. Farmers are very careful
to have for Uieinselves warm floors
and feather beds, but leave their dutiful cows hanging by thc necks In the
cruel stocks named stanchions nnd to
get what sleep they can on a frost carpeted floor. Both should be abolished
by law as cruelty to animals.
We can also class the horns wlUi butter eaters, and the boss cow eats more
butter than the farmer's family, for
every time she spears the other cow
"shrink" goes the butter fat Her ally
Is the dog.
Ceaar of Cow Fallare.
Don't let your cow eat her head off.
A few cows give 400 pounds of butter
fat In a year. A great mnny give 300
pounds or more, and yet It Is a deplorable fact that the average cow does not
produce much over 100 pounds In a
year. But ln a great many Instances
this failure of the cow to reach a point
where she may be consl.ler.sl as a profitable Investment Is due to the care, or
rather to the lack of care, which she receives.—Michigan Farmer.

A   Perteol   Hume.
A perfect home is never created all
at once nnd by one person. Let the
anxious house unstress take comfort
lu the thought. She should also remember thnt It is iu tl.e nature of
beauty to grow and that a well rounded and beautiful family life adds its
quota day by day. Every book, every
sketch or picture, every carefully selected or characteristic object brought
Into the home adds to and makes a part
of a beautiful whole, nml no house can
be absolutely perfect without all these
evidences of family life. It can be
made reedy for them, completely ready
and perfectly ready, by professional
skill and knowledge, but If it remained
Just where the Interior artist or decorator left It It would have no more
of the sentiment of domesticity than a

A   . ,,ii-i,,,i«   Scot.
A Scotsman went to an English race

BtrangCly enough, the bona ho backed

I cannot understand how nny dairyman can get along without a silo. I
recently heard oue sill I ess fill dairyman
say that It be had built a silo Ave
years earlier be would have easily
saved $1,000. I figure that when you
get twenty tons of silage to the acre It
Is equal to eeven tons of the best bay.
That ought to settle the question, says
a Connecticut dairyman iu American
VVt.ndrrfol  Forage  Crops  Posalble.
It Is difficult to uiide.stand why the
southern dairymen do not rolso their
feed. Tbe system of dairying that Is
carried on ln the north, if adopted,
could not fall to be more profitable to
the producer and more healthful for
the consumer, affirms C F. Doane ln nn
exchange. The amount of forage that
can be raised on an acre of land in
most of the southern states Is beyond
tbe conception of the northern farmer.
Tha Paatare a Hack Siorobrr.
"Nobody but a billionaire * an afford
a pasture," states Mr. Detrich. as quoted In Farm Journal. "Soiling Is the
correct Idea. Grow the feed and bring
It to the cows. live, oats nnd |m:is.
sweet corn, ensilage, liny, etc. are the
keynotes of modern farming Tlie pasture Is a back number."
At  Calvin* Time.
At calving time many breeders feed
wnrm brnu mashes, aud some give
tepid water for drinking purposes until
the cow has regained her normal condition.
Serrlas   the   Hairy  Oori'e  Feed.
In England a great deal of attention
Is given to the preparatlou of feed for
dairy cows. Grain Is usually crashed
or ground. Chatting or cutting straw
and hay is a very general prn
lioots are usually pulped or sliced.
Mora Roota  tn Re  I...1I
An Increased use of roots Is being advocated in this country. In Great Britain they are fed to dairy cattle as well
as to beef animals, but when feeding
tbem to milk cows the best dairymen
take pains to avoid tainting the milk
by their use.
Dairy  Feedlae Well  I nderatoed.
1 suppose no other question has received more consideration among onr
farmers lu the past twenty five years
than this question of feeding, and the
result is the general principles of feed-
lug today ore pretty well understood.
It has been said, and 1 think with a
good deal of force, that the dairy of the
average farmer Is better fed than tho
family of the same farmer.—II. Wing.
