Tho unprofitable cow May enjoy perfect health and have a Large appetite she May even belong to one of the Best cow families but if she is not an economic producer she should concerted into meat proper manner for handling Hay crop when exposed to successive Rains it is injured in Quality. Many Farmers with 8mall acreage disregard Dewfall and prefer to mow in afternoon thus giving Hay Chance to Wilt prepared by the United states department of agriculture it is a matter of common knowledge that Hay exposed to successive Rains is injured in Quality and loses in Aroma and palatal Allty. A Light rain or a heavy Dew does but Little injury to freshly Cut Hay in the Swath. Indeed Many Farmers whose acreage is not Large disregard Dewfall and prefer to mow Hay in the afternoon thus giving the Hay a Chance to Wilt overnight. Bain causes partly cured Hay to become bleached and moldy and continued warm Rains dissolve and carry away a considerable portion of the nutrients. Hay should never be raked cocked or put into the stack or barn when Hay should not be bushed to barn before it la properly cured there is any Dew or rain on it such Hay is very liable to Mold or heat and even spontaneous combustion May occur. If a rain comes on when the Hay is partly cured in the Swath it is bad practice to Rake it into windrows for it will be damaged no More in the Swath than in the Windrow. Hay that gets wet in the Windrow will have to be spread out later to dry. The same holds Trun about Cocking. in Case of rain nothing is gained by hurriedly Cocking or bunching Hay that is almost cured unless Large Hay Caps Are put on the cock. When such Hay is rushed into the cock it will not turn water and will be wet All the Way through and if not scattered out after the rain is Over will soon begin to heat and will spoil. 4 ill a flt to Oliy to to t y Yff Ltd it t to a t v l of water Supply for poultry a necessary for fowls As sufficient Quantity of food different types of vessels. Prepared by the United states department of agriculture a. Supply of pure drinking water frequently renewed is As necessary for poultry As sufficient supplies of food. There Are two different types of drinking vessels for poultry in common use open vessels palls pans crocks and the like and drinking fountains so constructed that dust and dirt cannot get into the water except by Way of a very Small exposed surface. These quite opposite types of drinking v Sel Are about equally popular with poultry keepers. Open vessels catch More dirt and dust but Are More easily cleaned. Closed fountains May be used much longer without cleaning but if allowed to become foul Are harder to clean thoroughly. Placing open drinking vessels on a shelf a foot or More above the floor prevents the hens from scratching coarse litter into them but does not keep out Fine dust which floats in the air and settles in the water. Thoroughly rinsing open vessel once a Day and scald Long drinking Fonnis gains once or two he 6 week will usually keep Thorn As clean u information service United states department of agriculture inspecting meat for army Camps disease can kill More men than bullets so Uncle Sam guards food for his a soldiers. Shipping meats to our fighters Federal inspection protects food from time of slaughtering to mess tables. Many inspectors Are used standards of inspection Are based on Best scientific knowledge of present Day regulations and practices stringent. Souped Soupee soup without a single bean porker porker porker a without a Streak of lean. Coffee Coffee Coffee be we shout any Cream my. When a Bugle blows Beans the Call that is liked Best of nil when our soldiers and sailors join in with the time honoured lines just quoted and then when they line up for army mess or Navy Chow they do so with full Confidence that the meat they will eat will be As wholesome and As fit As practical science can assure. The reason is that the Federal inspection service which has protected he civil population of the United states from bad meat in interstate Commerce has been extended to cover completely the meat and meat products supplied for the american army and Navy. Sixty seven inspectors of the Bureau of animal Industry of the United states department of agriculture Are now with the army and thirty Are with Tho Navy. When the present War began the Secretary of War requested the Secretary of agriculture to assign meat inspectors to the various Cantonment training Camps forts posts and other places where Large numbers of troops were in training. This followed similar service by inspectors when american troops were mobilized on the mexican Border in 1915. Regulations stringent. The Bureau men Are inspecting selecting and handling meats and fats for military consumption and the operations Are under supervision from the time the live animals Are driven into the slaughtering Chambers until Tho finished product is delivered in Good condition Totle a mess Cooks. The standards of inspection Are based on the Best scientific knowledge of the present Day and Are sustained by the unanimous views of All the great scientists of the world who Are experts on the subjects involved. American regulations and practices Are fully As stringent As those of any other nation and in some cases they Are even More stringent. Meat from two sources. The army gets its meat from two sources from the quartermaster corps and from private concerns. All meats supplied by the quartermaster corps Are prepared in establishments operated under Federal inspection and the majority of these products Are further inspected in these plants by army meat inspectors assigned there for the purpose. Examinations made by inspectors at Points of consumption Are to detect unsoundness which May have developed after Tho products left the packing House and to determine whether they comply with specifications and contracts. Inspectors also advise quartermasters with regard to proper storage and handling of meats 1heoo these officers informed of the Supply on hand make sure that the oldest packs Are issued first and assist in other ways to prevent loss from deterioration., troops must Purchase la the open Market fresh meat and meat products other than fresh and Frozen beef and Mutton because the quartermaster corps does not carry them. Thorough and efficient inspection of these products purchased locally by troops preceding their preparation for food in the kitchens is of More importance than the inspection of he meats furnished by the quartermaster corps. Handling sanitary. All meat products must be handled in a sanitary manner. Wagons or trucks used to transport meats from Points of Issue to kitchens must be clean and equipped with tight fitting tops and persons who handle meat must Wear clean garments that May be easily made clean again. For the past ten or twelve years the Bureau of animal Industry has co operated with the Navy department in the reins Pettlon of meat and meat food products. The organization of the Navy is different from that of the army. Not As Many men have to be supplied and the manner of feeding them is not the same. The Navy provides Large mess Halls and unlike Tho army does not have numerous Small mess Halls. The organization of the Navy does not make local pure lives because the Supply division of the Navy department furnishes nil goods. Only United states inspected and passed meat and meat food products Are purchased and these must be inspected for specifications in the packing plants by inspectors of the Bureau of animal Industry except at the Chicago plants where the Navy has its own inspectors. The Navy department desires the Bureau s inspectors to conduct allure in a be colons at receiving Points. Inspection for to vhf Navy is not confined to meat and meat products but includes other provisions such As poultry fish oysters clams butter eggs cheese fresh fruits and fresh vegetables. Army meat Analysed because of the possible addition of harmful substances to meat products prepared for military use department of agriculture inspectors stationed at official establishments Are required to collect and Forward to the meat inspection laboratories for chemical examination representative samples from every j Batch of food products prepared for the army or Navy. The analyses of these samples Are Given precedence Over All other work and include an sex am nation for adulterants and j chemicals especially poisons. Co operation in egg saving. The United states department of agriculture is promoting a plan for cooperation for the common Good Between producers and Consumers in keeping summer Laid eggs for Winter use the plan is to have As far As possible every former and poultry keeper in the United states preserve for Home use Only one Case-80 dozen of eggs and to sell one Case to a nearby consumer to preserve. This plan when put into operation the department believes will produce three beneficial results. First it will conserve supplies. Second it will equalize distribution. Third it will tend to stabilize prices. The water Glass method of preservation is Rosconi mended or where water Glass cannot be obtained the Lime water method. Only Good strictly fresh eggs should be put Down in water Glass or by the Lime water method. Eggs that Are stale when , continue to deteriorate.

C. a capital x m x snuff boxes show unchanging ways of the Senate Senate still has customs that Are almost As old As itself. It moves along in the same old Way that it has moved for the last 100 years or so and apparel by is satisfied to move in that Way. Nothing is Ever changed in the Senate even m my you be m Meno though times and customs change on the outside. For instance a Good Many years ago it used to be the custom for All gentlemen to use snuff. The Senate officially recognized the custom to the extent of providing snuff boxes for the senators. These boxes Are still there and from time to time they Are refilled with fresh snuff despite the fact that they Are never used. The boxes Are near the lobby entrances on the inside of the Senate. Apparently in the old Days it was quite the thing for a senator to take his Pinch of snuff before he took his place in the Senate. There is also an official Sharpener of the Quill pens for the Senate. This Man is so designated on the pay Rolls and is curried there by the rules of the Senate. For Many years there never was a Call for a Quill pen in the Senate until one Day senator Lodge of Massachusetts happened to go into the stationery room to ask for a Quill pen. The men who originated the title of of the Quill pens for the Senate was Charles n. Richards. He has just completed his fifty fifth year in the service of the Senate. When he originally got his place As an employee of the Senate it was during the civil War after lie had been wounded and incapacitated while serving As a Soldier in the Union army. He received Ai Bayonet thrust through the jaw. There was not much for Richards to do around the Senate but certain senators wanted to be sure that he was taken1 care of so the title of Sharpener of the Quill pens was invented. How Little Dottie earned her four Gold medals she was a Sallow Little Syrl in a White frock and Blue Sash. Her hair was a curled in sleek tubes and from her Inee insert Yoke was suspended a Black velvet ribbon to which four Gold medals were pinned. The Little girl wore her honors with a Grimness that suggested the fear that she had swallowed a ramrod which she could t digest but Mamma on the Side frankly revealed in the attention which her child was attracting from each passenger in the car. A dignified old gentleman leaned across from his seat opposite and said with a winning deference that no child s Mamma could resist what a wonderful Little lady you must be to win so Many medals when most of us have to get along with the ram Roddy Little girl smirked importantly but she did t answer for the very Good reason that Mamma did t give her the Chance. Tell the gentleman Darling everybody says she s so modest about it go on Darling Tell the gentle i Lonnem in a ticket contest. I sold 42 ahead of All the others this year and thinner sold Mamma had to Cut in. She just could t help herself.

Of course papa and i help her out among our friends and the stores where i Deal at regular they always like to oblige their steady customers you know and they Are so in trusted in Dottle her papa was Sert of opposed to her going in but when Dottle makes up her mind to a thing you can t Stop her and really she did most of the work herself this year and if you will kindly take the trouble to consider the difficulties of ticket Selling you will agree that Dottie deserved her medals along with thei Soldier Man the life Saver and the student addicted to Midnight Oil. His Way of spending Fine Days in Washington he was going to Market with a Basket on his Arm. Res Steps were slow without being sure and his shoulders were so Bent that his face All but touched the hand that held his Cane. Having come to the Avenue it seventh. Street he stood at the curb waiting his. Chance to venture across when another Man these merest everyday sort of person guided him Over and its leaving Cau tuned him not to try to re Cross at so congested a Section. The old Man gave a Birdlike twist to his neck so that he looked Sld Wise it his Good Samaritan mud chuckled out Assurance i won t be going Back before dusk. I stay in the smithsonian grounds nil Day in weather like this so that i can watch the growing things Flowers you know and grass and Little children and sparrows hopping around and squirrels the everyday Man paused to endorse the statement with a nod and the other seemed glad to have a listener. When you can Sot All the sky you want and Tho tops of Trees and other High up things Over your head you sort of take the world As a matter of course and keep on without paying much attention. But when you have Toj keep looking it the Small things under your eyes they get to be lots of com Pany Friendly like you know. Sly granddaughter puts me up a lunch and i buy a bag of peanuts for the squirrels and some animal crackers for thei children and we have a pretty Good time All together that s a Fine scheme of yours sir. I think i la look into it myself. Also i it s n pretty Good then the everyday Man went his Way and after a while he told it to Ai person who tabbed it Down like this. It is Worth the telling because to make the Best of one s disabilities is a splendid thing. Aud a splendid thing is Worth passing on. Also the old Man was t going to Market. Which shows what appear Ance amounts to. Bottles put in House offices were a poor joke who was the wet individual that laboriously collected 29 ancient and empty whisky bottles and placed one each at the doors of 2i offices of representatives in the House office building where the janitor could t help but stumble Over them Aud who among the members of the House if they see fit to indulge in alcoholic spirits Are fools enough to never else their falling at a time when prohibition is on us everyone the 29 dead soldiers alleged to have been collected by the janitor of the House office buildings on his sunday rounds were placed purposely it seems at the doors of representatives who voted to keep the prohibition rider in the $11,000,000 agricultural appropriation Bill. Item. E. C. Dinwiddle leading prohibitionist not Only attributes this pitiful joke to an abortive attempt to discredit the work of the dry element in Congress for the nation As a whole but characterizes it As an attempt to forestall the attempts to make Washington Bone several representatives announced that they would demand an investigation. But this investigation was not to discover who among our legislators drink whisky but who it was that had such a poor sense of humor. Tho Joko was too Crudo to to taken seriously. Of course Congress angry at having a joke played upon it and still angrier that old John Barview Corn was called upon to Aid and abet the joker. -
