Hope for Apple Growers.
Apple growers In recent years have
noticed largely Increased damage by
the codling moth. This pest appears
in the form of a small brownish moth
soon after the young apples have set.
Its eggs, laid on the side of the fruit
or even on the leaves, give rise to
tiny worms which enter the young
apples and develop Into full grown
The annual loss to apple growers
In the United States from this pest
alone is enormous. Such a pest could
not long escape attention from the
scientific sleuths of the Experiment
Stations. These workers have tracked

that precarious pastime of asking any

ask him a question. Dr. Ingram was
met by the following: “Flease. sir

For Growing Girls.
West Pembroke, Me., .March 21—
j Mrs. A. L. Smith of this place, says
that Dodd's Kidney Pills are the best
l remedy for growing girls. Mrs.
; Smith emphasizes her recommenda
j tion by the following experience:
"My daughter was thirteen years
j old last November and it is now two
| years since she was first taken witli
! Crazy Spells that would last a week
| and would then pass off. In a month
| she would have the spells again. At
these times she would eat very little
and was very yellow, even the whites
of her eyes would be yellow.
"The doctors gave us no encour
agement, they all said they could not
help her. Afier taking one box of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, she has not had
one bad spell. Of course, we contin
ued the treatment until she had used
in all about a dozen boxes, and we
still give them to her occasionally,
w hen she is not feeling well. Dodd's
i Kidney Pills are certainly the best
I medicine for growing girls."
Mothers should heed the advice of
| Mrs. Smith, for by so doing they may
save their daughters much pain and
sickness and insure a healthy, happy
future for them.

Buying Milk by the Test.
Prof. R. A. Pearson, in an address
recently said: Milk for the market
should be bought from the producers
on a basis of its fat content and its
sanitary condition: its value as a
salable product depends upon these
two things. Everyone knows that 4
per cent milk is worth more than 3
per cent to the dealer, and milk that
has )>eeo carefully handled is worth
more than that which has not. Why
should not these two desirable fac
tors bo paid for at a fair rate? Al
most everv argument in favor of pay
ing for milk delivered to a factory, on
a fat basis, applies with equal force
to market milk and there are Just
as strong arguments in favor of hav
ing the value governed also by the
sanitary condition. The Babcock test
shows the fat content quickly and ac
curately. An occasional examination
of the producing premises supple
mented by tasting and smelling the
milk when delivered and the simple
acid test or the fermentation test,
clearly shows the sanitary condition
of the nilk. A few milk buyers are
now pm chasing milk on the basis of
its fat content and, roughly we may
say, its sanitary condition. It is to
the dairymen’s own interest to have
this practice extended.
A western creamery has built up a
very large and successful business of
making butter from hand separator
cream which is shipped from all direc
tions and from some points 500 mites
distant. They pay two cents more per
pound for butter fat that comes in
good condition than for that which
comes in bad condition. They make
high-class, prize-winning butter. The
dairy industry is rapidly developing
in their section, showing that their
methods are wise. The president of
that company told me recently that
most patrons deliver the higher price
cream, or soon patronize another
creamery, where there is no discrim
ination between good and bad. If a
creamery finds it profitable to differ
entiate between good and poor cream
at the rate of C to 10 cents per hun
dred pounds of milk, the buyer of
market milk would find it profitable
also to adopt such a plan.
Old and Damaged Milk Cans.
What is more disgusting than to see
milk that is to go into a thousand
homes carried in milk cans that bear
every mark of filth and neglect'.’
Cans that are rusty and discolored !
within and without, bruised and bent
till one would wonder if they had
been in a railroad wreck, are often
found at the stations at which milk is
delivered for shipment to the city as
well as at the creameries and cheese
factories. Such cans give the impres
sion to the beholder that the milk
\*y contain has not been well cared
for, and they speak the truth. As
sva.”* one knows, it Is impossible to
.-lean such cans after the first layers
of tinning have been broken and rust
®pots have appeared.
At a factory in Illinois we saw a
wagon drive up with two rows of such
cans. How were they unloaded? The
driver simply pushed each can over
the side and permitted it to fail to
the ground and into the mud, being
entirely careless whether the can re
ceived injury or not. He may have
been only a hired man and apparently
did not feel a personal interest in the
matter. A close inspection of such
cans would show them utterly unfit
for use in conveying milk. They
might indeed be used for the carrying
back to the farm of whey and skim- i
milk, but are almost certain to be not
so used; for most farmers do not ;
want to carry two sets of cans to the
creamery. One might say that the
outside of the cans does not prove
what the inside is, but the man that |
stops to make an investigation finds !
that there is a striking likeness. The ■
managers of many of our cheese fac- !
tories and creameries will do well to
give (he matter more attention than
it has so far received.
Screens in Creameries.
Screens are now being extensively '
used in the creameries managed by j
the most progressive creamery men. j
We notica that the dairy and food I
commissioner in one of our western
states makes a report on whether
screens are used in the factories. As
yet no totals are possible, but the fact |
that the inspectors are asking about !
this practice will naturally call the
attention of creamery managers to it. j
The reports are published in the but- j
loti ns, and the reports get hack to the I
creamery men by way of the press. ;
This should be a strong incentive to j
improvement along this line.
The Hy is not only a carrier of dis j
<“ase, but he is also a carrier of filth J
in many forms. It is surprising that
all creameries and cheese factories i
have not been long since provided I
with screens. Flies gather by thou
sands wherever there is a creamery j
or cheese factory and literally swarm I
over th6 butter, cheese and into the
milk and ;ream. The writer remem- 1
tiers being in a first class dairy school
where flies were altogether too nu- !
merous for comfort. Here and there
they were to be seen swimming in
the cream or buttermilk. In a ‘ brick
cheese” factory visited bv the writer !
flies were present by the thousands j
and were continually falling into the
hot whey and being pressed with the
cheese. The men did nothing to pre
vent this. It may be assumed that
they thought that if the proprietor
cared nothing about it. there was no
reason for them to worry over thi
outcome, even if the flies did reach a
llual tomb in the pressed cheese.
An Exposition of Modern Wonders
The World’s Fair of 1904 Is the Greatest Educational Factor as
Well as the Most Stupendous Entertainment that Was Ever Or
ganized-No Words Can Describe Its Magnificence or Magnitude
Mr. B. E. Stevens, editor of the Min
neapolis Union, visited the World's
Fair at St. Louis a few days ago. and
the following letter in the Union des
cribes in part what his impressions
To Headers of “The Union":
I have been through the World's
Fair grounds again to-day for the
third time since coming to St.
Louis last week, and every day the
wonder within me grows. I had
imagined from the descriptions that
tho management intended to eclipse
anything ever before attempted, but
I bad no Idea of the tremendous size,
tho magnificent designs, the splendid
settings, and the artistic beauty of
the buildings. I was somewhat pre
pared to see something of tho ordi
nary, but my mind had by no means
grasped the splendors which will be
open to the visitors to the World's
Fair this summer. Of course ttic*
grounds and the buildings at this
time are in a chaotic state, and the
weather was tinpropitious for pleas
ant visiting, but even with these
drawbacks, and with nothing but the
bare and in many cases but partially
finished buildings to be seen, the

grounds are well worth traveling hun
dreds of miles to see, even as they
are. This being the case, what will
it he when everything is completed
and when nature has combined with
art to make this the fairest vision
ever seen by mortal eyes.
It would be presumptuous on my
part to attempt to give a description
of the grounds or of the buildings,
and w'hen I attempt a description I
am at a loss for words, and can only
repeat. "Wonderful, wonderful, won
derful." The grounds are a natural
beauty spot, and with the addition
of the buildings, the statues, the
fountains, the lagoon, the cascades,
anti all the cunning contrivances of
art, the visit will be one which will
never he forgotten, even if one should
not go inside the buildings at all. And
then the inside of the buildings—
buildings covering acres and acres of
ground, and stretching out for what
seems to he interminable distances—
when these art* filled with the works
of nature, of art, of science and of
skill from every portion of the known
world, who would be so foolish as
to miss it?
I would make It compulsory upon
every parent who can afford to do so, j
me that there was never anything to
equal it and that the one who misses
seeing it will never have another
opportunity to see its equal.
HYMN OF THE WEST.

Western folk will he charmed by
the beautiful hymn written by Ed

Conductor Forgot His Audience in

to Hoboken, carries a number of men
known to the world of finanee. The
conductor is David Sanderson, to
whom his passengers, grateful for his
uniform good nature and efficiency,
have just presented a handsome watch
and a purse of gold. They insisted on
his making a speech and Sanderson
did so, winding up in this way: "Some
people wonder why it is I have had
such great success in life; why I have
had no trouble with nobody. Even the
other conductors don’t understand it
and they often ask me how I get along

requested. Half an hour later the
