Public Opinion on Milk.
The uiattor of public opinion Is n
lurge one when it relates to the milk
traffic. Wo must have a higher level
of requirements for uiilk if we are to
have better milk produced and sold.
The public must be educated to refuse
any except a perfectly pure milk, and
must be also educated to the point of
paving for that milk what it costs
more than the milk that Is now being
Mild, which has a low average as to
cleanliness. At different times, talk-
ing with large producers of milk and
butter, they havo deprecated the agi-
tation of the subject, for they have
M id that if tho public found out how
dirty the milk really is they would re-
fuse to use it and that would hurt the
milk trade. Hut that Is not the effect
of a proper enlightenment of the pub-
He on the matter. Once the public
comes to understand that the milk
i<t which they pay a certain price i
1 >w in freedom from dirt they will
ii 'tuand a milk that Is clean and will
be willing to pay for it. That is the
< .tirse as It works Itself out in prac-
tice. As public opinion rises the qual-
ity of the milk also rises, for the men
that sell dirty milk find that they can-
not hold their customers. The papers
and the men that are telling the truth
to the public about this matter are the
< nes that are turning the trade to the
venders of pure milk and that are
driving tho other men out of business.
To illustrate. About two years ago
one largo milk concern in Chicago
was discovered to have preserved its
milk with foinialin. The papers of the
city published the facts. The next day
all the customers of that company
stampeded, and tho company went
into bankruptcy within a few weeks.
This will be tho result with every
company that Is discovered net to l e
<iolug right by the public, provided
the public find? It out. 1'iiblic opinion
is a mighty power that is seldom fully
< ounted on. Turn It in the right direc-
'ion and nothing can stand before it.
The strongest aid that we can call to
the production of a good and pure
milk supply Is this same intangible
force. Rightly informed it Is Invarin-
lly a mighty weapon for jrood.
The attempt that is frequently made I
to make beef out of dairy steers j
should bo abandoned, except where an
animal has passed his usefulness and
'.as to be turned off. or where a cow !
r ca'f is unprofitable to keep for
-o-ne reason. A good many farmers
• st* Veen fooled by their own export
aents in this matter. They have fed
-jeh steers an A havo kept an account
of the cair.i ata4e and have seen that
r. many instances a dairy animal will
.iake as rapid rains as a beef animal.
If that were the only test to Ik made
*e wo aid have nothing to s y against
*yin* to rr.ake beef with dairy blood.
At some of car stations dairy stters
he*f steers have been fed side

t.me of being cot np for moat fur

a considerable sum of money. The

It will not in the main pay any farmer
to try to raise beeves from dairy cows
Rvcry particle of pollen is a minnto
germ that is meant to .fertilize the
cavity at the end of the corn silk and
thus produce a kernel of corn. Tho
pollen is not in itself a seed, but is
the germ of a seed. The number of
pollen gruius borne on a single corn
tassel Is surprising. On the basis of
counting a large part, it has been reck-
oned that each tassel, or rather col-
lection of tassels, ou a corn stalk, has
about 50 milliou grains. Thus na-
ture prepares to have most of her ef-
fort wasted. There are probably not
more than a thousand kernels on the
ordinary ear of corn, and this would
givo 50,000 grains of pollen for each
kernel. Iu other words nature sup-
plies the pollen so abundantly that
nearly all may be wasted and yet
enough be left to do the work of
fructifying the cavities that are to
produce seed. Tho necessity for this
great wasto is seen in the methods
used to pollenize tho silks. The wind
is the chief carrier, But many times
the wind is blowing the pollen away
from the silk Instead of towards it.
It is only the occasional breeze that
carries the pollen to tho place where
it may be useful; yet so great is tho
supply that a single zephyr may waft
enough to the silk to fructify the
whole clump. This abundance of pol-
len also helps to cross fertilize tha
corn, and it is probably the rule that
most of the kernels havo been devel
oped from germs borne from other
stalks rather than from the stalks on
which the particular ear grew. This
Is the more likely to be the case for
the reason that (he wind Is generally
blowing the pollen away from the
stalk on which it is borne and to the
silk of seme neighboring stalk. Thus
nature provides agaiust self-fertlliza-
tion, which seems to be abhorrent to
tho p. neral plan of life production
Pollen is blown to considerable lis
tances, if we may judge of tlie re-
sults obtained. Some time ago wo
heard of a man that had a very fine
strain of sweet corn, which brought
him a good price when sold green in
the market. He would not sell the
seed, and as it had been bred up by
himself, no other person could get it.
To be sure that his seed did not get
into th<% hands of anyone else, he
planted his corn on an island, in a
river. Hut a neighbor was smart
enough to plant his corn on the river
bank opposite the sweet corn. The
sweet corn was white and the other
was the yellow field corn. He rightly
judged that some of the million of
grains of pollen would reach his field.
In the fall when he gathered his yel-
low corn he foun4 many white kernels
scattered among the ears. These he
picked out and planted the next rear
with the result that he had the same
variety of corn as his neighbor. He
had stolen the variety, but in a man
aer entirety iegal.
Couldn't Guarantee Ownership
"It is embarrassing sometlni ? to
pursue a direct lino of questioning;''
said President Elliot of Harvard, in
telling about a recent visit to New
| York. He just had dined at a hotel
in Fifth avenue, whero the man tv ho
t ikes can of the hats at tho dining
room door is celebrated for liis mem-
ory about the ownership of headg?nr.
"How do you know that thl- is my
tat?" the collegian asked as his silk
I tile was presented to him.
"1 don't know It, suh, s lid the 'loor-
"Then why do you give it to me?''
insisted President Elliott.

replied the darky.

Miss M. Cartlcdge gives some
helpful advice to young girls.
Her letter is but one of thou-
sands which prove that nothing
is so helpful to young girls who
are just arriving at the period of
womanhood as Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound.
" Dp. a it Mrs. Pink ha it: — I cannot
praise J.ydiu E. Plnkliam's Vege-
table Compound too highly, for it
ii the only medicine I ever tried whiei
cured me" I suffered much from my
fir.st menstrual period, I felt so weak
and dizzy at times 1 could not pursue
my studies with the usual interest.
My thoughts became sluggish, 1 had
headaches, backaches and sinking
spells, also pains in the back and lower
limbs. Ia fact, I was sick all over.
" Finally, after many other remedies
had been tried, we were advised to pet
Jvydia E. Piiikhara's Vegetable
Compound, and I ?.m pleased to say
that after taking it only two weeks, a
wonderful change for the better took
place, and in a short time I was in
perfect health. I felt buoyant, full of
life, and found all work a.pastime. I
am indeed glad to fell my experience
with Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vege-
table Compound, for it made a dif-
ferent girl of me. Yours very truly,
