YOUNG AT FIFTY.
HOW A METHODIST MINISTER
CARRIES HIS YEARS.
From the Time*. Oswego, N. T.
Probably no man is better known or
ftiore iiig-tily respected In Oswego, N. Y.r
than the Rev. William Young, of the
Methodist church. Mr. Young holdr a
responsible position with the Oswego
City Savings Rank, wheie he has been
an employe for the past twenty years.
In the spring of 1894 Mr. Young
looked as if his time on ea^th was lim-
ited but, instead of falling as wag pre-
dicted, he soon gained a more healthy
look and appeared stronger. As the
months went by this improvement con-
tinued, until now he is as rugged and
apparently as healthy as u young man
of thirty, although his gray locks de-
note a more advanced age. A Times
reporter, determined to find out what
had made this great change, called
upon Mr. Young at the bank and put
the question direct and received the
"In truth I am a changed man, and I
owe my present good health to Dr. Wil-
liams' Pink Pills. In the spring of
1894 I was all run down and had com-
menced to think that my time had
come. I had to be prescribed for by
physicians, and although 1 received
temporary relief, the same old trouble
came back again and I was worse than
before. I had no strength or appetite,
and physically I was 1n a miserable
condition. After my work I would go
home, but the general lassitude which
hung over tne left me without any am-
bition, and when I would go to the tabic
to eat, rny appetite failed me and I
would have to leave without taking
hardly any nourishment. My kidneys
were also badly affected, and I was In
utter despair. One day, here at the
bank, I happened to pick up one of the
local papers, and my eye fell on the ad-
vertisement of Dr. Williams" Pink Pills.
The advertisement gave a description
of a man who. afflicted , as I then was.
had been cured by using I>r. Williams'
Pink Pills. I was not a believer in that
kind of doctoring, but concluded as a
last resort to try a box of the pills, mak-
ing up n y mind that If they did not
help me I certainly would not be in-
jured any. Going to a drug store 1 pur-
chased a box of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and commenced taking them ac-
cording to directions. Very soon after
I began to feel better and I saw I had
made no mistake In trying the pills, and
before the first box was emptied I felt
so much improved that 1 immediately
purchased another. 1 had taken seven
boxes of the pills, and at the end of last
summer I felt I was entirely cured and
discontinued their use, but always keep
a box handy If occasion requires. I
am now entirely cured. The lassitude
has left me. my kidneys are all right
and my appetite—well, you should see
me at the table. I am a new man
again, and Instead of feeling like a man
of fifty, which Is my age, 1 feel like a
youngster of twenty, and I give Pink
Pills the full credit for this great
change. I have recommended these pills
to several of my neighbors and ac-
quaintances, who have been relieved of

RENCH butter and

formed the topic,
says the Daily
News Paris corres-
pondent, of a lively
debate in the
Chamber of Depu-
ties the other day.
The discussion on a
bill to prevent the
adulteration of but-
ter was characterized by a frankness
which to the foreigner was delightful.
Members kept running down French
butter, forgetting that the English buy-
er might be listening, and, much to the
despair of M. Viger, the minister of ag-
riculture, who hinted that these things
were better left unsaid even if true—
particularly if true. M. de Saint Quen-
tin delivered a formidable impeachment
of margarine. It was the ruin of agri-
culture. The consumption of butter in
Paris remained for years at a standstill,
although the population increased. This
was due to margarine surreptitiously
taking the place of butter. French ex-
ports of butter to England bad dropped
by more than half, and prices were one-
third less for high-class Gournay or
Isigny butters, as well as for Brittnny
butters, which were of lower qualities.
M. Sibille, member for Nantes, let the
cat out of the bag. He said that if the
export of butter to England had fallen
off it was because French butter was
not so good as formerly. (“Oh, oh!”)
M. Viger, minister of agriculture: "I
cannot let such a statement pass.
French butter keeps up its old reputa-
tion on the English market.’’ And the
minister added vaguely: “The fact that
the sale is less is due to other causes.”
M. Viger was applauded b*y the whole
house for the presence of mind with
which he mended the awkward state-
ment blurted out by M. Sibille. M.
Rene Brice, a member for the butter-
producing land of Brittany, defended
the drastic provisions of llie bill against
margarine. Butter was going through
a crisis. It was the most important in-
dustry in France next to that of wheat
growing, and its existence was threat-
ened. Denmark and Sweden had taken
energetic steps to defend butter. They
had in consequence got the whole bene-
fit of the increased consumption of but-
ter in England, while France on that
market alone had lost four to seven
million pounds a year.

soon are large enough so that a narrow-
tooth horse cultivator can be used in
them, and but little hand work is re-
quired. The crop should be gathered
and stored before a hard freeze,
but not until the weather is cool,
and If large quantities are stored
together the bins should have slatted
floors raised a few Inches, and a ventila-
tor put in every ten feet to admit the
air to pass up through them. These
ventilators can be made with two strips
of board four inches wide, placed four
inches apart and strips of plasterer s
lath nailed every few inches to hold
them together. Set them on the floor
over a crack, and let them extend to
the top of the bin. Beets are worth
more for feeding late in the winter and
early in spring, than in the fall, for
two reasons. First, beets, like winter
apples, go through a curing or ripen-
ing process, which improves them; and,
second, after being fed for months on
dry feed the stock need more and re-
lish better a change to succulent food,
and beets are a grateful food to them.
I have had results that seemed marvel-
ous in fattening old cows by feeding
roots liberally in connection with grain.
I formerly cut all my roots to feed, but
I have found that it is labor thrown
away, and for some years I have fed
them whole. It takes a cow a little
longer to eat her feed from whole beets,
but she is contented while at it, and
my time is worth more than hers, be-
sides a cow will often choke on a three-
cornered piece of beet that has been
cut, but I never heard of one choking
on u piece that she bit out of a beet
for herself.—W. F. Brown in Tribune.

The method of adding something to
the cream that will destroy the bacteria
or prevent their growth, no matter how
warm the weather or how distant the
market,appeals to the dealer on account
of Its cheapness, simplicity and effec-
tiveness. Cream in which a sufficient
quantity of boric acid or salicylic acid
has been introduced, for these are sub-
stances generally used as preservatives
of cream, will remain perfectly sweet
for an indefinite time even in the hot-
test summer temperature. These chem*-
icals produce no decided change In the
taste or appearance of the cream, and
it is no wonder that this method has
sometimes been adopted by those who
have seen in it a solution of the only
difficulty in the way of extending a lu-
crative cream trade. What, then, are
the objections to this method? The
first and the very decided objection that
will occur to the consumer is, that
when paying for sweet and wholesome
cream he does not want it diluted with
anything else. In view of the compara-
tively small quantity of the preserva-
tive that has to be used, this objection
might be overcome by an appeal to the
reason of the consumer, If he did not
have reason as well as prejudice on his i

taken aback by his nerve. He was equal
to the occasion, however.

said, “but as you seem to need to read

The borrower took It without even
enylng "Thank you." The spectacled

Conclusion* on I.mrtb Feetllrg*
Last winter the Minnesota experi-
ment station made some tests in lamb
feeding. The following are some of
the conclusions reached:
1. That lambs possessed of sufficient
quality for winter feeding are not plen-
tiful In the state, since no little search-
ing had to be made before suitable feed-
ers could be found.
2. That with the rations used, lambs
that are being fattened in winter con-
sume about three pounds of food per
day, for every 100 pounds of live weight.
3. That the average gains made by
the lambs in this experiment was 9.22
pounds per month,and without any suc-
culent food, as for instance ensilage or
4. That in this experiment, the aver-
age cost of making one pound of in-
crease in live weight was 5.44 cents or
less than the cost of producing it, a re-
sult which is not seldom attained in

ture is moderate, notwithstandiug the

How Alkali Injure. Vegetation.
The peculiar behavior of alkali is
largely a result of its solubility in
water. To this cause the well-known
‘rise of the alkali’ is due. W’hen the
ground has been wet by rain or irriga-
tion, the water evaporates at the sur-
face leaving the soluble salts behind at
this point. By reason of capillary at-
traction more water rises to take the
place of that which has disappeared,
bringing with it more alkali in solution
until finally a crust of salts is formed
at the surface of the soil. It is this
concentration of injurious salts into a
strongly corrosive layer which causes
the greatest destruction.
Other bad eifects of black alkali are:
1. Clay hard-pan, which results
from the union of the black alkali with
finely divided clay at various depths
below the surface.
2. The loss of humus, which is cir-
how to win them.
