Covering Cream Cana.
A great part of the value of keeping
cream cool on the farm and at the
station or creamery is lost if the
cream is exposed to the direct rays of
the sun while being hauled from the
farm to the point of sale. Far too
few people stop to realize the impor-
tance of covering their cream cans
when bringing them in to town. Ex-
pensive jacketed cans are not a nec-
essity to keep the cream cool. In
summer weather just an ordinary
piece of wet burlap thrown over the
cans will keep the temperature of the
cream as much as 20 degrees below
what it would rise to if left uncovered
while being transported over the av-
erage hauling distance.
For years we have been stating in the newspapers of the
country that a great many women have escaped serious op-
erations by taking Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Com-
pound, and it is true.

FOWLS REQUIRE SOME SHADE
Easy Matter to Grow Something Along
8lde of House to Provide Pro-
tection From 8un.
Fowls that are deprived of shade in
summer often fall victims to sunstroke
and diarrhea from overheating. Some
shade should be provided. The house
is always too hot for their comfort if
it is their only defense against the
fierce rays of the summer sun. It is
an easy matter to grow something
against the west and south side to
provide extra protection.
A house that has vines or tall plants
growing againBt one end and partially
shading the roof will be several de-
grees cooler than one bare to the sun.
Boards collect and radiate a lot more
heat than green growing things. It
makes little difference what you use.
Castor beans grown under the protec-
tion of a slatted crate until too big
for the fowls to destroy will prove
good shade. Big branches broken
from trees will help on very hot days.
If you can do nothing better lay
some branches or stones on the roof
of the house and spread old carpet
or horse blankets over them. It will
greatly reduce the heat inside the
house during the heat of the day. Shut
out the sfln and allow some opening
on the side away from the sun for
free circulation of air. The fowls
will seek their shelter during the hot
part of the day and show their appre-
ciation by greater vigor and health
when the trying period is over.
Many so-called cases of cholera In
hot weather are nothing more than In-
digestion from the ravages of hot
weather during which they had in-
adequate protection against the heat

| Ingenious Method by Which Lawrence
Hutton Cured Waitress of Her
The late Lawrence Hutton used to
say that having to take a little trou-
ble would impress a fact on anyone's
memory so that he would never ts
able to forget It. In Illustration he
would tell this Btory:
"Our waitress, Maggie, could never
remember to put the salt on the table,
and time after time Mrs. Hutton would
remind her to do It. One morning It
was absent, as usual, and 1 said. 'Mag-
gie. where is the stepladder?"
" 'It's in the pantry, sir."
" 'Please bring it in. Maggie,' I said,
"Maggie brought It in with a look
of wonder on her face.
" 'Put It right beside the table.' I
commanded; and when she had done
so I added. 'Now. I want you to climb
up to the top of It, look all over the
(able and see if there is any salt

FIGHTING AT SHORT RANGE
Italian Soldiers Persist In Using the
Rifle and Disregard "Useful-
ness" of Bayonet.
Among the Italian troops fighting In
the Isonsia region are those from Cor-
ica, Sardinia and the south of Italy.
These, when hand-to-hand fighting
comes, throw away their rifles with
their bayonets, and drew their dag-
gers, assailing their man at close bod-
ily quarters. They cannot be taught
to use the knife or bayonet on the
rifle: they want a knife in their hand
and their hand on their enemy. The
old centuries-long use of the knife and
stiletto cannot be overcome. And
this doubtless is an inheritance. The
Romans fought all their wards hand-
to-hand with knives or short swords.
The infantry line which was the main
reliance in all battles advanced and
threw the pilum, which was a short,
heavy spear, that at thirty paces went
like a rifle shot an<f small buttering
ram combined. After this one dis-
charge the men drew their swords or
knives and advanced to a bodily con-
test. shield against shield, with cut and
thrust to decide. And the Romans
had a maxim that "the nation that
shortens Its swords, lengthens Its
boundaries." It has been noted In this
year of war that there is a return In
many ways to old methods. The use
of hand grenades Is one illustration,
making real the old term grenadiers
who were originally foot soldiers who
threw grenades. The French now
give preference to the bayonet as the
deciding factor in an assault, after
the cannonade and rifle Are. The Her-
mans prefer the rifle. Now we have
these Italians going farther back to
the hand knife of whatever kind. In
our own army a new bayonet like the
Philippine bolo lias been adopted, in-
stead of the present sword bayonet.
It makes an all-round knife for many
purposes and can be used like the
South American machete for cutting
and hewing in domestic requirements
as well as for warfare.
