Tlie presence  of even a little milk in'the ducts may  act as a powerful check on the' secretion of fresh inilk.   Hence the ex-  i tremo  importance  of  clean  milking;  ihat   is,  milking  the cow  dry,   which  ' will  be. found one of the surest and  est methods of prolonging the-milk  mpply.   Generally twice a day is suf-  'icient;  and it is best to so arrango  hat  the period  mentioned is divided  ���������jvenly into'parts.    There, are certain  animals  which  yield  rather more by  being milked ol'tener, such cases being  ndicated   by an   undue  distention  of  the udder between milkings.

How true it is while listening to this  gifted exponent "eartft's sordidness is  forgotten" and how after a recital  we go back to our work with a new  idea of what Is best in -life.  Michael. Ma-toff wno was born in  Russia in 188C, after a thorough training under Europe's best teachers,  gave a series of brilliant recitals in  'the Capitals of the world. These  triumphs were consumated in Madame  Donalda, the Canadian queen of song  inducing Matoff to join her Canadian  ,-party of 1906. On the completion of  the tour Mon. Matoff was induced to  locate in Montreal where he opened  a school for the violin. Since then  this great violinist has given many  recitals in Canada and the U. S. A.  where he is a favorite. Mon. Matoff  Is about to give a number of recitals  In. the European capitals but Canadians ne������d not be afraid that he will  stay away long as Canada is to him  the beau ideal of . what a country  should be.  SENATOR COX,  Peterborough  The.thriving town of Peterborough,  in Ontario and Senator Cox are so  "much part of each other that no one  thinks of -the one name without the  other cropping up across one's mind.  Both -have been' kind ; to eac : hother.  While Peterboro has h&lp.e'd'A; the  Senator to make his wealth; Mr. Cox  has been a generous benefactor to  the, town; he has also done much to  build up the rising city by inducing  Industries to locate in the vicinity.  The Hon. George A. Cox was born  In Colbourne and came to Peterboro  i In 1871 to engage in the life Insurance  business. While In this business he  secured control of the Midland railway and became President; a . position he kept until he sold his interest  to the C. P. It. To-day Mr. Cox is  President of many companies.  Mr. Cox was called to the Senate  in  1896.A  MARK BREDIX  ���������Mark Bredin is a pretty well-known  man In Toronto. He came originally  from the North of Ireland, and there  is just enough velvet sticking to his  pronunciation to make this fact apparent. He used to drive a bread  wagon many years ago, and finally  he started a small shop himself in  this city. He baked bread and finally  scraped enough money together to  buy a horse. One day the horse got  blind staggers or some other dreadful  disease, and up and died. Bredin  was in despair, and the business was  crippled. But he was a hard aggressive worker, and he pulled  through all right.  "To what do you attribute your  success?" Mr. Bredin was asked the  other day.  "I never made a dollar till I stopped  taking my coat off," he replied.  in the time of milking, for it has been  ascertained by careful experiments  that tlie difference of an hour- may,  unci often does make a difference of  as much as i) per cent, in the amount  of milk yielded. Repeated irregularities ot this kind soon tend to diminish  the flow of milk permanently.  Weighing the milk is the best means  of registering the capabilities of a  cow.  SIR DANIEL  McMILLAN,  Manitoba.  PICKING   OUT   THE   REST   SHEEP  The shrewd shepherd has learned to  sell   off   the  culls  from   his   crop  of  lambs, and also to get rid of inferior  older individuals from his -flock.1'Some  prefer to keep at ieast some of these  for   the   Christmas  market,  and   perhaps some nice wethers until Easter,  but   generally   speaking   this   season  of the year, following the weaning of  the lambs and preceding the breeding  season, is considered a very opportune  time to go through the flock and discard all those individuals which, because   of   age,   sickness,   faulty   con-,  formation, or' other reasons, are not  suitable  to be  used  as  breeders any  longer.    It is generally wise to turn  over  to  the butcher all  ewes which  did not breed last season, if this has  not already been done. All those ewes  which have not brought, forth a desirable, class of lambs should also be  culled'out, as we'll as any'whose teeth  are so badly gone as to make keeping  them over another season risky.    Of  course,    with    high-class,    pure-bred  breeding stock, a ewe that has proven  herself an exceptional breeder is often  profitable   even   after   her   teeth   are  very  badly  gone,  but with sheep  of  indifferent   breeding   and    uncertain  value as  breeders,  it is  very seldom  advisable to take any chances on defective specimens.  If the lambs have been weaned  early, which should always be practiced,-.the'ewes will pick up in flesh  rapidly, and they are soon in good  condition to be disposed of to the  butcher. Besides their being in.good  condition, the- fact that mutton is  usually a fair price,:, at this time, is  also an advantage to be gained by  disposing of the undesirable breeders  just now." Not only should the old  ewes be turned off, but very often  there are shearlings iii the flock  which are scrubby individuals of defective conformation, which, if used  -as breeders, would be a, detriment,  rather than an improvement to the  flock, and all such individuals should  be disposed of. One sometimes hesitates to part with a young ewe, but  if she does not give promise of becoming a good breeder, the sooner she  is removed from the flock, the better.  Many two-year-old ewes which have  produced scrawny lambs should go  with the other poor ones. Nothing  but the best type of strong, healthy  ewe should ever be kept for breeding  purposes; and, to bring the flock up  to the highest possible condition, and  keep it there, requires severe yearly  calling. Few other seasons offer as  good an opportunity for this as does  the time just previous to the breeding  season in the fall.

C 1  A LAND MYSTERY  _.1...|JI1P<1EIW L.'I_ 'in..  The building of a railroad by the  British from Persia to Karachi across  Mekran may not of Itself, as the Now  u York Sun says, be a project of importance. Europe' has offered' iitth  opposition, and engineers say th;-  route presents few serious obstacles;  but it brings the rest of the. world into  contact with some of the carlios;  scenes of. Eastern history, and opens  a land of mystery of which there have  been only glimpses about every thousand years.  Mekran Is the coastal region of  Baluchistan and extends from India'  to the Persian Gulf. Sailors before  and since the voyage of Alexander's.  Admiral, '��������� Nearchus, have coasted  along its white shores and found  themselves surrounded by spouting  whales such as the first map makers  delighted to picture. High pooped  native crafts like ancient galleys car:  rying pirate slave traders and gun  runners dodge into Its shallow harbors. . British steamships sometimes-  stop p.t one of Its ports for a cargo  of dates or rice for the Indian trade.  But sailors never penetrate Into the  rango of yellow hills or cross the  sterile plain, ''the hottest land of all-  Asia," where the sand rolls in waves  and floats in stifling clouds. Oases  are nic along the streams that flow  from these ridges; the country is dry,  weather worn, .desolate, shunned by-  man.  The few inhabitants are the flotsam  and jetsam of the civilization that  have passed over it. They are the  wreckage that drifted Into this obscure world from the earliest movements Into and from India to the first  search of Europe for Eastern empires.  The Portuguese that conquered Muscat and captured the Islands of Ormuz  and Kl&hm and founded colonels at  Bander Abbas and Gwadur left their  tribute of adventures, as did the  Dutch, French and English that came  atfer them. These found here older  people of whose origin all trace was  lost, colonies of half bred Arabs left  by the decline of the Arab dynasty at  Sind, Mongols from the time of Gen-  ghiz Khan, negroes, descended from  mediaeval slaves, and ��������� stragglers  from every central Asian tribe.  Yet Mekran cannot always have  been such a dry, desolate land. Buried  in the sands beneath some of the little  towns are the ruins of cities. At one  place an explorer found the walls of  six towns that must at some'time have  been places of some importance. In  the hills above Gwadur are the remains of a great reservoir Tombs  with fragments of pottery that no one  seems able to identify are often uncovered; many of the hills are closely  covered with stone houses with dome  shaped Interiors. There are remains  of worksxof masonry that were great  dams for catching the waters of the  river at flood time. In arid deserts*  explorers have found forests of dead'  trees that have stood stark for centuries, and on some of the hills terraces that must some time have been  in a high state of cultivation. No one  apparently is able to tell who built  these cities add reservoirs, cultivated  the terraced hills, or were burled ln  the tombs. The very reason why this  land to-day Is only a reblon of great  heat, thirst and death is one of the  secrets of nature.

The most spectacular feature of a  baseball contest is the batting and  correspondingly the most showy  talent of the individual player is his  work with the stick. Some really  great players have been poor batters,  but a glance through the. list reveals  the fact that almost all the real stars  of the game have been heavy hitters.  Of the individual members in the  team it is generally the pitcher who  gathers in the largest number of  laurels of any individual, member of  a team. He has more of an opportunity to distinguish himself, individually, than* any other member of  the team, and is censured or praised  iii  accordance  witii ill?  WQilL ' Pis  AUTO SPEED HAZARDS  That automobile track racing is hazardous sport as compared with reliability tours is shown by the tragedy  recently at Syracuse, when Lee bld-  field, driving, a high-speed.racing car,,  crashed into' the fence .killing nine'  persons and injuring many others.  Oldfield will be remembered as the  driver of the pilot car in the Munsey  Historic Tour last year. This tour,  which was the .biggest automobile  event of the year in the East, was  run without a single accident. Tommy  Skeggs. Lewis Strang, and Walter  Donnelly, three men- who drove cars.  In the Munsey tour, have since met  violent deaths while driving racing  cars, and- Oldfield's accident may  cripple him for life.  That the American Automobile Association will put a ban on automobile  racing on dirt tracks, is expected by  many followers of the game, say?  Harry Ward in the Washington Times.  The tragedy has stirred up In the  minds of the public a feeling of antipathy to this form of sport, and if the  automobile makers who support racing  and the association that makes and .  enforces the rules do not do something  to stop the slaughter of drivers and  spectators the Legislatures may take  a hand in the matter.  It is known that almost a majority  of the automobile makers are opposed  to these dirt track events because the  results do not prove anything. Track  racing on mile and half mile courses  formerly used .for horse racing has  not ranked high ln the estimation of  the public during the last year or  two. There have been too many flukes  and fiascos in connection with them,  to say nothing of the loss of life,.and  it is probable that automobile racing  may be restricted to the big road  events and to the speedways, where  the public may be given protection.

The first thing every dog must  ifearn is his name. Select a short,  sharp-sounding name, and stick to  it. Never call him anything else. If  you have several dogs, the name ia  taught on the same principle. Divide  their food, and then, placing a piece  on the ground call each in turn by  his name, and give him the food when  he comes for it. Send the others  back if they come forward out of  their turn. By and by they will learn  that a certain name is always associated with a certain dog. Ramble  among the dogs, and call out one of  their names every now and then. If  the right dog comes to you, reward  him with a piece of cracker. Pay  no attention to the other dogs. They  will learn very soon; and the first  great lesson ��������� dependence and obedience ��������� will have been learned.  Having taught a dog to fetch and  carry ��������� which he will easily learn  ��������� the next thing is to teach him to  go and get any object called for.  Place a glove on the floor; then say  to the dog, "Fetch the glove," putting the accent on the last word.  Then, when he has done this several  times, place a shoe on the floor; and  teach him to fetch this in a similar  manner. Now place both objects on  the ground, and teach him to fetch  either one, as asked for ��������� rewarding  him when he brings you th* right  one, and rebuking him when he  fetches the wrong, which you take  from him and replace. HeAwill soon  learn to distinguish the articles, when  a -third may be substituted, and so  ca until a number are on the floor.  You should then go into the next  room, taking the dog with you; and  send him ;to fetch any article you  mention. After a little time he will  bring you the right one every time.
