bid good-bye to the ,old  year   with
but   little    regret.       The   mining
catastrophes of last 3'ear which' oc-
cuired so close to our doors, resulting in the^loss, of .many lives, .and
enforcing the closingt down  of - the
mines "for  a   period, bore heavily
upon our community, and   caused
many resident w/orking men to .-eek
'employment elsewhere.  The wrecked mines havcf now, however, been
placed in good working-order, employing "a large number of-,miners,

rr.et with a peculiar and serious accident on Tuesday.     In   company
with some other lads he was. placing  one  foot  against  the moving
wheel of a Wagon loaded with coal."
The spokes-caught him and  hurled
him  over and   to the  ground with

condition for some.-time but is said
to be now improving.
1 Happy lew; lisar to all.
The  first  Xrnas day of i the new
century was  apparently celebrated
and observed with as much zest as
in  former   times.     Divine service
was celebrated in all   the  churches
during  the   morning,-   the   sacred
edifices being beautifully decorated
for !the occasion. Holiday shopping'
was  the order   for   the  past week,
and all of our tradesmen and storekeepers, we are pleased to say, had
ii fair   share of   Xmas   patronage

in wishing its friends and subscribers and readers a  ''Prosperous and
Happy New Year in the corning of

of thanking,them for their generous
patronage in the past.

Given in his own words the story rtms  as follows: ''  " 'By the way,'  said   Schorick, as w������  were   about   to   separate   one   morning,  'what  are you  going to  do this  after--  noon ?'        ������ *��������� " ''  " 'Nothing of moment,' I replied. 'No  programme in particular.'  " 'There'is going to be a poker game at<  the Langham,' said Schenck, 'and'if you  ,care'for the exercise I'd like to have you  in:   The Prince of Wales will be one of  ithe party.' i    -  "This last rather dazzled inc. I rc"-  flected that it isn't given every American  citizen to bluff and raise and''draw cards  against a prince boin in the purple. I  would go. I cared not a whit for poker,  but it would"be an experience whereof to  tell, the babes when they grew up���������tell  them how papa beat the' Pi ince of  Wales.' I told-Schenck I'd bc'there. Ha  seemed deligh'tedN and no doubt was, foi  he-was a royal good follow and liked to  put his friends in the way to be pleased,  One thing I forgot, the-limii! But'I ha<?  a couple of thousand dollars in London  and felt elegantly safe, even superciliously so. */   v'  ��������� "Three o'clock came,{and I repaired to  the Langham. The others came in later.  In addition to'tke Prince of Wales came  also "Anselni Rothschild of the bank of  that name "and the .Duchess of 'Marlborough. I'll say right here that the lady  was the best player of-the, lot. With  these three Schenck and I sat down.  Just after'I was-presented to the prince  I asked Schenck in a whisper what limit  usually obtainedW these poker festivals.  He replied,,.also in a strong aside, that  there was no limit.       ,   *    t / ���������  " 'The prince never plays with a limit,' whispered Schenck. 'It would infringe his dignity as a prince.'   ,. >  "I felt a bit cold after this. My,$2,000  blinking in the -Bank of England vault  with its yellow neighbors didn't seem  Buch a wad of money., In fact, it began  to diminish and appear paltiy and mean  when.' made to face the proposition of  limitless' play against England's' heir'ap-  parent with the whole island to draw, on,  ���������to 'say" nothing of - the Rothschilds. It  started the, perspiration,, but I was Jn  and couldn't get out. I hastily made* up  my mind to stay long enough to* lose $100  or so and then gro������v suddenly ill'and  extricate myself. It was a1 happy  thought. 'Cold feet' would pull me out if  my losses became too loweiing.  "As we .sat down, however, two thing?  happened to disturb my dream of ."cold  feet' as a means of escape. > Schenck was>  to bank tho game, and the first thing' the  prince said was, "Give me ������1.000"worth  of chips'���������$3,000. And he said k with no  more of notice or emphasis than ifv,hc  had said, 'Pass the pie.' '   ���������  "I began to realize that I vas liable to  lose my $2,000 the first hand befoie 'cold,  feet' could come to the rescue. To add to  my grief the heir of the Rothschilds placed a book made up of signed checks by  his elbow, with a blank space for him to  write in the amount. This he did -with a  blue pencil of the editorial hi and.' The  Rothschild didn't buy chips. lie played  in those checks. No wonder I be;.;an to  sweat���������to be caught between the banking house of the Rothschilds, and the  British empire, with only $2,000! The  one ray of encouragement in it all was  that the duchess���������fine old lady. ^ too-  only 'bought $1,000 worth of chips. I  steered by that arid, although groaning  inwardly, bought $1,000 worth of chips  also. Schenck smiled approvingly. I  learned afterward that I did right. It  would not have been etiquette to buy  as much as the prince. I was glad of.  that. I would have been in a pretty fix  if etiquette had taken the other shoot.  "Well, it's hardly worth while to go  into the details of lhe game. The ante  was ������10, four call ten. I got good enough  hands, but was scared to death. I didn't  dare bet them. Tho prince would look  at his cards in a royal ermined way and  say, 'I raise tho ante ������10.'  "The young Rothschild would look at  his cards and observe, with the same indifference to my feelings which distinguished the prince, 'I'll see that aud go  ������50   better.'    These   blood   curdling   re-  1 J ���������!  marks took place before the draw, minci  you.  And then they'd lean back and call  for what cards they wanted and organized to bet ������2,000 to ������3,000���������anything that,  happened   to   pass   into   their   reckless  minds.   That's the sort 'of company  I'd  got into.   I laid  down' hand;,after hand^  and stayed out all I could, but for al"  dodging I lost $1,200 in the first fo'j  five minutes���������simply/anted ' it away.'  i    "About the end of the first hour I  three aces.

I never "passed a -niore '  miserable afternoon in my life., Schenck  arid the duchess played along with much  calmness 'and  phlegm, but'I   was so oppressed  by my danger and  harassed  by  the reckless betting of the' prince and the ���������  Rothschild that l.have no recollection as (  to how they fared.

Having dost     his  parents   and  being  unable .to   prosecute his studies, on  the. slender     income' accruing to a 'Clerkship in the  Court* of Exchequer, he,1 went to Ireland  in  search   of  a fortune.     Here  ,Jre married      a* lady  who,/presently  dying,      left' '  him  an  estate  worth  ������.500 a.year and a position of influence which,  as he employed it, > sooa  raised'     against him. a host  of enemies   and  detractors.     The rebellion  of Munstcr    /reduced     him again to'  poverty, butjie had gahiedr the, favor  of, Queen Elizabeth, in the meantime,  and      judicious   investment- in   Irish  .lands,   which, ho  peopled  with ' Protestant tenants,  made him' not only  rich  but' a political  figure.of  -great  importance, in  the  troublous -, .times  that      were . . to' follow.

Then, as is even so to-day, Roman  nosed niatrons received lodgers, and  servant maids courtesied "low to  one another of these and remarked  in stately Latin accent:  "If my noble lord please, missis is  most sorry: but, may Vulcan hammer her, the cat leaped within the  kitchen safe to-day and carried off  the last of the cold j'int, and missis  would fain know what the noble  lord would have her do in this most  grave matter."  The walls of the sweatrooms were  made of hollow bricks, throue.il  which the heat passed. Thousands  of these bricks remain, perfect specimens of an art which many moderns have flattered themselves has  been invented within a comparatively few- years.

Good, bright cane hay that was  cut  whenTthe  seed  was 'in  the  soft*  dough "stage""is an excellent feed  for  dairy cows.   It has a laxative tendon.-  ey,   is-easily  digested  and   cooling  in  irs effects, but it must be supplemented by some feed rich in protein.  ' Sorghum  hay  contains only 2.4 per'  c-ent of digestible protein in each  100 ..  pounds  and   has  a  nutritive  ratio  qf^  1.18,   while   alfalfa  contains   10.(5  per  c-ent of digestible protein in each  100; .  pounds  and   has  a   nutritive  ratio ,of3  1.33.    Some have held that it is only  the seed that caused trouble. j  , At the New Jersey experiment* sta-  '  tion milk cows were changed  from a  ration consisting largely of corn to-the  same amount of sorghum seed, which  was nine pounds per day per cow.   Tho  cows while being fed the corn in the  ration each gave on the average   2S.1  pounds of milk per day. aud after the  change was made to sorghum seed (hoy  gave 24.0 pounds per da.v.    A change  was then made back to corn, and they  each gave 27 pounds daily.  This shows that the seed does not  compare favorably with corn as a milk  p'roducing ration."-but there were no  dk-astro'is results. Cane or norghum  hay is best when fed before Feb. 1.  The warm spells later cause it to ferment to some extent, and the stock tire  of it. I.Caflir corn hay is better for  spring feed. It is quite a prevalent  practice to^mix the two, half act] half r  at sowing.' This gives variety.  In a ton of "Dead sea water there are  187 pounds of salt.

Young calves should be fed whole  milk for' two weeks, then gradually  substitute skimtnilk until, at a month  or 6 weeks old, they get all skimmilk.  "Add to the skimmilk a little flaxseed  jelly or old process linseed meal. The  milk should always, be fed at the temperature of new milk. Scald the pails  each day. Keep the calf warm and  dry, using plenty of bedding. The addition of a little wheat flour to the-  milk is useful to stop scouring.

To accomplish this  the  milkers  must have clean ' clothes  and hands.   For clothing, suitable suits  devoted exclusively to milking are ve-  quire'd.   Ordinary white cotton jumpers and overalls are "well adapted for,  this.   They must bo,washed and stezil-  , ized daily.    ���������Tho  milkers  must thor-  '' ough'y   wash   their   hands 'with   hot  water 'and    soap,    using' brush,    and  cleanse  the' finger  nails.' ��������� The /milk  utensils, pails, cans, bottles, strainers,  etc., should bo sterilized, which is'best  accomplished   by   moist   heat (steam)  rather than dry heat.   For sterilizing  * bottles a wooden chest is the best.  For  ' convenience in handling-.the bottles are  placed  in trays  which  slide into  the*  chest.     Avoid the, use of galvanized  iron in this worl^" as steam attacks and  destroys the galvanizing. ���������       ? w   '  1 The trays should be made of wood,  secured  with   wooden  dowels   instead  o������ nails or screws, as metal takes the  "heat before the wood, causing expansion of the metal and spreading, of the  wood   s6r that  trays   soon   fail  apart.-!  ,The  dust  in   the  atmosphere  of- the  stables',, should   be- maintained   at   a  minimum, particularly during "milking.  This is accomplished by, moistening all  dry foods, the repeated removaTof sacli  dust   as' accumulates\ and ' frequent  -whitewashing. >   Experience"    has    indicated the'absolute necessity of using  'covered milk pails. ".'','  \   Milk produced under these'eonditions  " will,   nevertheless,   be   somewhat, iD-  , fected by micro organisms, as'.despite  nil these precautions it will have been  exposed to an indefinite and varying  amount of Infection.-.To prevent the'  multiplication of such bacteria as shall  have.gained access to the milk it.be-  '��������� comes   indispensable   to * immediately  5 ,cool the milk to about 40 degrees. The  milk must be cooled in a'room as dust-  proof as possible.     This'.prec'ludes the  feasibility of -cooling the -milk in the  'stable.   If a' room in the stable is con-  l- structed for this purpose, the entrance  to it should be double vestibuled. ��������� "*   ���������  "When* milk" is produced under such  conditions,  butter making resolve's itself into a mere rule of thumb.

Indicate    Good   Hlllt  Producing;  ftaalities.   . '  The best dairy cows must possess  .quality, and the skin and' fine bone  "show these features in a fairly accurate manner. Long, coarse 'hair arid  thick, stiff hide are most undesirable'.  One"shouldrbe able to"*grasp the skin in  th& hand, along the front of the body  near the shoulders arid/pull it easily  from the 'bod3*\ and almost wrap, tho  hand in it, if of the mellow sort desired. - If it hangs tight to the body, it,  niay show lack of condition or will* indicate poor quality, says C. S.'Plumb  in Rural New'Yorker. This applies to  the skin over the udder as well as to  the rest of the body. People sometimes ask for indications as to quality  of riiilk. ' "Most dairy students desire n  yellow pigment to the skin? which" ib  most readily seen by examining the inferior of the oars*or is perhaps seen in  the lower part of the horns. This is  not,always a correct indication, for I  have seen a Holstein with good color  producing a very low grade of milk.    ,,  As one stands behind a well devol-  oped dairy cow the hind legs should  come -to the ground in good, position.  Jcally .met by selecting cows possessing -the , individuality to produce  rich milk.. For this purpose we rely  upon Jerseys. Having the proper cows,  tbe only remaining factor worthy of  note is the feeding. This problem is  ultimately associated with local conditions. 'For winter -feeding we usually use a grain ration composed. by  weight as follows: Coramcal one part,  bran three parts, old process linseed  meal l1? parts. A cow if milking receives from 2 to 14 pounds per day, according to period of lactation and individual capacity. WLenever a greater deviation in tho grain ration is desired for any particular purpose it is  obtained by adding either corn or linseed meals.  yj������*  ' >'      . ��������� '      ��������� '��������� -  JERSEY COW SILVER SHEE-"-.       ,    < ���������  with considerable,-space between' tho  hocks.

Tne appearance which we  . admire in her should always be indicative of her fitness **f or the "work we expect on her part. ,.-      -    ; *,  -  There are other features in the dairy  cow that might be touched upon, but  already the writer has covered these in  other articles. There is'always the do  sirability of the broad, level back and  splendid spring and depth of rib. with  large body capable of great.feeding.ca-  pacity. The dairy cow is somewhat  longer bodied that the beef type and  has mors space between tho ribs and  greater syace from hip to rib than the  beef cow. She also has a longer, thinner neck and leaner head.  HOUSE THE COWS.  Comfortable Stables Reduce the Coat  oi Feeding.  Food is fuel. The animal must use  food enough to wTarm up the body to  life temperature, says L. W. Lighty in  The National Stockman. If the cow  must be out in the cold and storm, she  uses very much food to keep up the  "temperature,,and- to digest this food requires considerable energy, which en-  ergy'must also be supplied by. the food,  and thus it comes about that if the cow  is compelled to rough it she is kept  busy keeping warm and can give very  little attention to making milk.  Arrange your stable or cowhouse so  that the temperature never gets to  freezing and keep the cow in at least  23 hours put of the 24. and if the  weather is real bad keep her.in.the other hour, too, arid it will save you lots of  feed and give the cow a chance to  make you a profit out of the feed consumed. When hay and cornmeal sell  at three-fourths to seven-eighths cents  per pound, it is an expensive experiment to try to,warm up the universe  by burning these in the cow's body  while the cow is humped up in the  field, or barnyard.  You will find that the mere resolve not  to be useless and the honest desire to help  other people will, in the quickest and  delicatest ways, improve yourself.���������JoLd  Buskin. '-.___.  Economy of Sheltering tlie Cow.  No doubt it pays to shelter a good  dairy cow any winter that sho is giving milk, but the high price of feed  during the coming winter will drive  the shelter problem home with much  greater force than usual, says D. H.  Otis in Kansas Farmer. A milk cow  that is worthy of the name is concentrating her efforts in producing a large  yield at the. pail. If she -must divert  ���������her attention from this noble purpose  and spend her energies in keeping up  the animal heat of the body, surely she  could not be expected to do her best  at the milk pail. To make the dairy  cow profitable this coming winter r-o  effort should be spared to keep her nt  the maximum production with an  economical expenditure of feed. To  do this good but not necessarily expensive shelter should be provided.  The dry cows and young stock, on  the other hand, do not need a great  deal of shelter." A shed open to the  south, situated if possible in a wood  lot, will answer the purpose very  well. Quarters of this kind will help  to develop strong, hardy constitutions,  a quality that is just as desirable in  dairy as in beef animals.  Flga on Dairy Farm.  The dairyman of today is of necessity  a breeder of swine, says a Minnesota  dairyman in American Cultivator. Tho  two go together so thoroughly that it  would be a waste of good material and  opportunity to neglect .either. There  can be1 no doubt that nature intended,  that the pigs should be the companion.')  of the cows in the clover, field. But  more than that���������the swine should .bo  fed on the skimmilk .-that comes from  the dairy. Pigs and shotes will thrivo  on this skimmilk as on nothing else.  MONEY IN CALVES.    "  i      Success ���������.nrsrely a Question of Prop*  ' er Methods.  Success in calf raising depends upon  the methods pursued ,on the farm, says  W. E. Edwards in The American Cultivator. If a farmer permits his calf to  run with the mother right along, there  is little,or no profit in'the work. ' By  the time the calf, is weaned then the  dam is dry, and about all the profit she  represents for the whole year's keep is  the price received for the caif. It hardly- pa3*s for the ordinary, expenses' of  feeding and sheltering the cow: TJn-  ' less we can make the milk of the dam'  pay for the cow's^cost of keeping it is  more profitable to put-the-money in  some other line of work.       .  There is no necessity, of letting the  calf run with the dam beyond a few  days after birth. The creature can  then be weaned and fed on skimmilk,  with a little bran and,grain, until ready  for the market. The'heavy milk yield  of tho, dam can be sold for butter or  cream, arid the profits obtained in this  1 way should eliminate1 the loss that  might otherwise occur. ''On the best  dairies this is the common practice,  and the methods differ only in slight  details.-*? A dairyman who permits, the  .calves to run with the'dams is hardly  up to date sufficiently to make a success.       , ,...*,'        '  The problem wo have before us where  calves are raised for market is to adopt  such methods of feeding'as will.make  the skimmilk calves almost as* heavy  ,and  valuable9as. the'calves^ that run  with' their darns.   When we succeed in  this, we can count upon a "profit that  has never before been realized in calf  raising.- -It has  been  done time arid'  again  in ^ recent  years,- and on' sorne  first class dairies the pure bred calves  1 for the show rings have been fed entirely on skimmilk.      ,   (    . ,  l, A calf should be allowed to run with  ,the mother, up to the fourth or 'fifth  day,   at "Which   time   the  cow's   milk  should  be  in  excellent  condition   for  market purposes:  then ^tako the, calf  away from the mother and keep it off  all food for about'one day or-night.  By this time it will bo so hungry that  it will take almost- anything, and can  be  easily   taught to  drink. r Its  first  'meals'should be of whole milk, fed at  ,the,rate of four poundsjn the morning,  four at night and two in 'the "middle  of tho day.   The milk should be wanned1 to the natural temperature of the  dam's   milk.   , The -whole - milk   diet  should be kept up for about two weeks,  and  then  gradually  should be transferred to a skiinmilk diet. '    -   * ,  , c  ' This change should be made"at the  rate of half'abound of skimmilk every  two or three days. , When the calf is on  <skimmilk,   the   quantity   must  be   in;  creased.   At first 10 to 12 pounds a day  may satisfy the creature, but in time  this will have" to be increased to IS, 20  and 24 pounds.    A little flaxseed jelly  mixed with the skimmilk at first will  help.   As soon as old enough to take  other food the calf shouJd.be fed hay  and "possibly a little grain; anything,  in short, to keep it growing rapidly,  so that at the end of six months it  will   be  as   large  and   heavy   as   the  calves kept with their dams.   A little  care  in  the  feeding  will  make  them  fully as  valuable as  the  mother  fed  calves, and all the cream "and butter  fats of the cows will be-'saved for market purposes.

Warnilnar Cream For tlie Clinri,  H. E. Bullis, writing in The American Agriculturist, says where farmers  do their own churning it is often necessary to warm the cream. It should be  G2 degrees F. or a little more. I have  a galvanized boiler���������a wash boiler will  answer same purpose���������and fill it half  full of water. I set it on the "stove and  heat to scalding or nearly so. I then  remove it from the stove and set the  cans of cream in it and stir almost continually until the cream is at least 64  degrees. It- is then ready for churning. 'This requires very little-time, and  the churning is done quickly. We have  three to four cans of cream at a churning and find this way of warming  cream a great saving of time and patience. I have nine cows and a hand  cream separator, and I think the dairy  pays. I ship all my butter to Minneapolis to private customers. Last winter I got 2S cents a pound and the previous summer 20 cents a pound.
