A child simply will not stop playing

HAS 190,000 FINGER PRINTS
New York Police Department Has
Huge Collection Gathered From
All Parts of World.
Tho finger print department at New
York police headquarters now has n
collection of more thnn 190,000 finger
Impressions of different individuals,
says the New York Thnes. The prints
came from nil over the United States,
Canadn and from many European
cities. Notices were sent some time ngo
to tho police headquarters of every
city In the country suggesting thnt
copies of their finger prints be sent
to Now York, and In turn free use of
Its finger prints service wns promised.
In this way the bureau has become a
kind of clearing house for other police
departments of the country. Tho Im
pressions are classllled according to
"whorls," "loops," "arches" or "del
fas." The prints are carefully filed
and Indexed according to their char
acteristics. As is well known, the system Is
based on tho fact that every human
being has n distinct and Individual im
pression which dllTers from that of
any other person. Tho New York po
lice assert that there Is not even a
similarity between the prints of mem
bers of a family. Twins who were nr
rested and who were as alike, physic
ally, as tho proverbial two peas, had
widely different linger Impressions.
There is no racial slmllnrlty In finger
prints. Those of a negro have th4
same general characteristics ns those
of any other race. The prints of a
mnnual laborer are not different In
whorls or loops from those of a finger
oj- artist, except that the prints of a
man whose fingers are not calloused
from hnrd work are often ns clear as a
steel engraving. In the opinion of the
men In tho New York finger print serv
ice, It would be Impossible to read tho

BIG PROFIT IN SHEEP
As Safe and Attractive as Any
Other Line of Stock.
Nowhere Is There an Instance of De
cline In Well.Ectabllshed Hus
bandry Based on Production
of Meat and Wool.
Kalso sheep! This wns tho advice
of 1 It. Marshall of the bureau of ani
mal industry, United States depart
ment of agriculture In an address be
fore the members of the Kansas Sheep
Breeders' association at tho agricul
tural college In connection with farm
and home work.
"It Is now time for the live-stock
farmer to make sheep raising one of
his regular lines of production," said
Mr. Marshall. "Putting asldo the ef
fects of war conditions, prospective
values of lambs and wool render sheep
raising fully ns safe and attractive, to
the man who will study and under
stand the business, ns Is the raising of
cattle, horses or swine.
"Prior to 1014 such a statement as
this would not have been Justifiable.
Western Lambs on Soy Beano and
Assured meat vnluns of the future, the
need of greater economy In tho use of
farm labor, and tho full utilization of
pnstures place sheep raising In an en
tirely new light.
"Some agricultural Journals and
pther authorities huve been Inclined to
question the safety of engaging In
pheep raising und base their Ideas upon
stutlstlcul facts of decline In popular
ity of sheep In eastern stntes. Such
statistical deductions are entirely mis
leading, ns nowhere is there nn In
stance In tho United States of a decline
In n well-estnbllshed sheep husbandry
based on the production of both meat
"The farm flocks that have disap
peared In the past were raised pri
marily nnd almost entirely for wool
production and beyond tho fact that
they were sheep had little In common
with tho kind of sheep that lire now
being placed upon American farms and
which will bo found In the near future
on nearly all farms.
"An Important feature In stnrtlng
tho sheep business Is to quickly work
Into n flock of about 100 ewes, or as
Is recommended by the University of
Illinois, n ewe for each two acres of
tho farm. Tho small flock which has
heretofore been recommended for
using weeds nnd wnste feed, and Inci
dentally as n small source of profit, Is
the flock that becomes diseased and, be
cause of Its insignificance In tho farm
business, Is certain to be neglected."
CABBAGE REQUIRES RICH 0IL
Early Varieties Most Acceptable es
They Come When Such Food Is
Needed Grow Quickly.
Cabbage is easily grown If the soli
Is rich enough, nnd the very early va
rieties are most acceptable, as they
como nt a time when such food Is most
needed. Tho style of head varies so
much that every tasto should bo grati
fied. Itonnd head or pointed head,
Hat head or drum head, stone head
and sure head, all have their vir
tues. Crow them quickly and feed the
soil, nnd almost any of the standard
varieties will glvo satisfaction. One
year one kind will seem to excel and
another year this same variety will bo

tho soil and the season.

SPRING WORK WITH THE BEES
It Is Duty of Beekeeper to Get Plenty
of Beej In Time for Honey Flow
The duty of the beekeeper In the
spring Is to get plenty of bees in time
for the honey flow. If this Is not
done his work Is a fall are. The popu
lation of the colony Is reduced during
tho winter, especially where winter
ing conditions are not the best, and
this must be corrected If tho colony
Is to get the full ftoney crop. It Is
poor beekeeping to have weak col

flow from which tho surplus crop is
GR0W F,NE EARLY squashes
Difficulty Experienced In North Where
Season Is Short Wise to Start
Under Glass In Pots.
In many localities It has been, n dif
ficult matter In recent yours to grow
fine squashes and have them fully
ripened before frost came. This Is es
pecially true at the north where tho
season Is short, and difficulty Is ex
perienced In getting the seed to grow
when planted In the spring.
It Is n wise plan to start pumpkliif,
cucumbers and squashes In llower pots
under glass, so that the plants will
have a good start and will be ready for
blooming much sooner than those
planted In the open ground.
A three or four-Inch pot will hold
from one to three seeds and the plants
may be allowed to become nice size
before being transplanted. The trans
planting Is easily done, and there
should bo no Injury to tho roots.
Simply turn the pot over and slrlko
the edge on a box or board. The ball
of earth holding the well-formed mass
of roots will drop from the pot, and
can be placed In tho cavity made to re
ceive It; the plants will scarcely show
they were disturbed, and long before
other squash or pumpkin vines aro In
bloom, the pot plants will have blos
somed. They will not need any protec
tion from pollen from other plants
causing danger of mixing, which Is so
detrimental In recent years.
ELIMINATION OF ALL WASTE

Kvery farmer and fruit grower
should secure a copy of the annual re
port for 1015 of Chief Chemist Als
berg of tho department of agriculture,
Washington, D. C, which tells, In
a most Interesting and Instructive way,
of the research work done during the
past year and of the methods which
have been discovered for making new
uses of by-products and preventing
waste which Is the bane of American
Successful experiments were con
ducted In drying potatoes on a com
mercial scale for stock feed. In or
der to provide an outlet for cull po
tatoes, better methods were discov
ered for making potato starch, glucose
It wns demonstrated that a number
of valuable by-products can be ob
tained from the wnste of canning fac
tories. Oil, closely resembling the oil
of bitter almonds, was found In cherry
pits. Tho other waste products of
the canning factories produced valu
able sirups, Jellies and nlcohol.
What farmers need most these dnys
Is an outlet for surplus crofts. The
