The Cow and the Hen.
Hoard's Dairyman tells of two men
who took a cow census. In Pennsyl-
vania twenty-five farmers who were
patrons of creameries averaged a net
profit of 15.0C per year for each cow
while twenty-flve more made a profit
of C5 cents per cow. In Indiana the
best six out of fifty averaged $21.00
per cow per year. It is fair to as-
sume that these best cows were worth
from $45 to $60. Consequently it ap-
pears that it takes a good cow to pay
an annual profit equal to one-third of'
Wallace's Farmer has given through
its columns the records of farmers
flocks of grade chickens that paid a
clear profit of a dollar per hen. If
put up at public sale many of theso
chickens would have sold from $3.00
to $G.OO per dozen. It would seem
that the average hen under average
' conditions will give a profit of twice!
her value where the average cow
under average conditions will pay ai
profit of about one-third her value.
When wo consider the difference in
the amount' of money invested we
wonder that farmers are so slow in
giving the hen her due.
Composition of Milk.
Milk is made up of water and solids
the latter varying from eleven to six-
teen per cent and averaging about
thirteen per cent. The solids are
again divided into fat and solids notj
fat. The solids not fat dissolved in
water make a thin syrup or serum.'
Fat will not dissolve in water. In milk
it is found In the form of microscopic
globules which vary in size from
1-2000 to 1-40000 of an inch in diame-
ter. The globules in the milk of Jer-
seys and Guernseys are larger than
those of Shorthorns and Holstelns. As
the milking period of a cow increases
ithey become smaller and much more
numerous. If a drop of milk freshly
lrawn from the udder is viewed
Sunder a microscope the globules will
appear evenly distributed over the
Hold. After the milk has stood a while
they will group themselves in little
bunches. If they are at the right tem-
perature to be sticky they will run
together when agitated and may be-
come visible to the naked eye as but-
ter granules. This is the explanation
of what takes place in churning.

CAUGHT BY A CARICATURE.
Last Milk the Best.
The last milk drawn from a cow is
much richer than the first. Tho last
quart usually contains more than
three times as much butter fat as
Milk of different temperatures
should not be mixed.
With cows long in milk tho butter
will como slow.
BUtter should be exposed as little
as possiblo to tho air from the time it
is churned until marketed.
Care should bo taken never to over-
work butter as tho grain and texturo
should be preserved.
The churn should never be filled
more than half full and then if tho
temperaturo is Just right it will churn
A good thermometer and a knowl-
edge of Its use will generally over-
come tho difficulty of tho butter re-
fusing to come.
When butter is worked very dry
the grains of salt Ici'U in it are not
dissolved and remain In a gritty con-
dition. Milk should bo set as soon as pos-
sible after being drawn from the cow

When the rhurning prcceotls too

Tweed Arrested in Spain Through
One of Nast's Caricatures.
No very strenuous effort had been
made to find Tweed but it became
known at last that he was somewhere
in Spanish territory.
As early as Sept. 30 Nast cartooned
tho "Boss" as a tiger appearing from
a cave marked "Spain.1 Now sudden-
ly came another report a cable
that one "Twld" (Tweed) had boon
identified and captured at Vigo
Spain on tho charge of "kidnaping
two American children."
This seemed a curious statement
for whatever may havo been tho boss'
sins ho had not been given to child
stealing. Then came further news
and the mystery was explained.
Tweed had been identified and ar-
rested at Vigo through tho cartoon
"Twee-dle-doe and Tilden-dum" drawn
by Thomas Nast. Tho "Btreet gam-
Ins" to tho Spanish office who did
not read English were two children
being forcibly abducted by tho 'big
man of the stripes and club.
The printing on tho dead wall they
Judged to be the story of his crime
Perhaps they could even spell out tho
word "reward" In an upper corner.
Absurd as it all was the identifica-
tion was flawless. Tweed on board
the steamer Franklin came back to
America to die.
When hos baggage was examined
it was found that ho had preserved
every cartoon Nast had drawn of him
save the few final ones published alter
bis escape one of which had placed
him again behind prison bars. Pear-
son's. Bacon's Prophetic Worcs.
Roger Bacon (1214-94) may havo
foreseen the possibility of making
dynamite and other powerful explo-
sives when ho wrote tho following
words: "A small portion of matter
about tho size of the thumb properly
disposed will make a tremendous
sound and coruscation by which cities
and armies might bo destroyed."

Made Him Crazy.
A man has recently been sent to an
insane asylum at London becauso his
mind gave way after ho had tried to
solve several newspaper puzzles.
Bvery housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only tlrao because it
never Bticks to tho iron but becauso
each package contains 16 oz. one full
pound while all other Cold Water
Starches are put up in -pound pack-
ages and the price is tho same 10
cents. Then again becauso Defiance
Starch is free from all injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a
12-oz. package it is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts in Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package in largo let-
ters and figures "16 ozs." Demand

money and the annoyance of the iron

Army Lived on Birch Trees.
During the siege of Hamburg in
1814 almost every birch tree within
some miles of the town was destroyed
by the Boshkirs and Cossacks who
stripped them of their bark for food
and also tapped them for their sweet
Prospects of War.
Gon. Andre lato Fronch minister of
war told tho budget commltteo of tho
chamber rccontly that ho could not re-
duco the number of men called to the
rolors. It was pointed out that Inst
j our ho was not so exacting. "Lust

ernment was certain that Franco
would not bo engaged In war for at
least eighteen months. At the present
tlmo It is impossible for mo to glvo

A Three-Footed Bear.
There is nt least one bear in Han-
cock county traveling about on thrco
feet. Two men were out hunting
whero there was a boar trap set ready
for the animals that mado camping
During the night the men wero
awakened by a growl and snarling
that betrajed tho. presence of a great
bear. They found a foot in the trap a
