Teaching Itnr In .'Milk.
A writer in finings Homes .iy:
Boys cannot learn to milk without prac

he Is so fortunate as to possets any, to
teaoh them tlirudlmonta of milking (
when Ihey aro at least 10 or 12 years i
old. As such teaching necessarily In- '
jure the milk yield, It should never bo '
practiced on animals whon tho object I
Is to mnlntaln tho yield. Teach the
boys bow to milk on cows that you want
to dry on. At this season of tho yoifr
you have such cows, animals that aro
approaching tholr timo of crtlvlng. Lot
the youngsters pracllcd on those, Im
pressing on them from the start tbo true
principles of milking. Teach them to
approach n ccw gently J brush the ud
der and cleiln tho teats before the milk
pall is brought near; to sit squarely up
to the cow, Instead of at arm's length,
and to not practlco violent "see-sawing"
in pressing out tbo milk. From
pbrsonal experience I know the value of
this mntter of learning first principles
right. A boy will until taught better
continue to practice milking In tho way
bo first learned It, bo that right or
wrong. At least, I did.
For tho first four weeks I give tbo
calf now pillk; nfter that 1 remove a part
of the cream, that Is, I give It morning's
milk at night and nlghtVi milk In the
morning. When I begin to take off tho
croam I give tho little fellow a fresh
raw egg once a day, and soon I begin to
add a little well-cooked corn meal mush,
und at four or five months of ago 1 wean
It if I have pigs that need the milk,
and I then have a fine calf ready to keep
for a good cow or to sell to the buyers.
If the cnlf is a male I have It attended
to as soon as possible, paying no atten
tion whatever to the "sign," a.s 1 Und,
if tho files do not troublo, tbo "sign" is
right at any time. I think, also, that 1
know how to have a good, gentle, nice
cow. When 1 havo occasion to sell a
cow I can do so easily nnd at a good
price. Given a roaeonnbly good stock,
and having raised the calf as afore
said, 1 turn my attention to the heiror
with an eye to tho future. I handle
them every day; 1 baiter break thorn;

creameries can alone help to remedy the
undcslrrd situation. Tbo chief cause of
tho complaints Is tbo low cost of butter,
due to Australian and American ship
ments to England, which has hitherto
been the main outlet for French butter.
During 1S9 1 there has been a drop In
the exportation of butter, amounting
to about $10,000,000. The president of
the customs asserts that tho diminu
tion has been going on quietly from
ygnr to year, and promises to continue;

Out on the big prairies of western
Minnesota the farmers of Gracevllle,
without the aid of a "promoter," or
ganized nnd built a most complete and
combined creamery and cheeso fnctory
with cold storage for $2,S00, quite as

cess from the start, the butter bring

tbo patrons of this creamery, to im
prove their cows, hired an expert, who
purchased twelve finely bred bulls from
the best dairy lines possible, and. tho
patrons aro now to see what blood will
do in securing better stock than they
now possess. In this Is the hint. Why
cannot other patrons do the same?
Tho dairying of tho future must bo
donq with a better cow. Who is to
breed her? Why not tho patron who
knows bis wants or should? And those

There are a groat many makes of

and there aro also a great many makes
of cows. This is a most important point
that a vast proportion of dairymen in
the stuto overlook. They get the idea
that "n cow Is a cow," whereas thoro
aro thousands of cows which do not pay
for their keep, to say nothing of the
labor required to attend them. The in

careful selection that is, breeding only

Chicago convention, but one thing may
bo sot down as settled tho American
people will not bo fooled by a straddle,

ed If tho Inter Ocean has any recollec

tbo silver question In 1892. It certainly
has no remembrance of the platforms or
It would not venture to characterize the
Democratic declaration as a straddle,
it It recalled exactly what the Repub
licans lind to offer upon the same' sub
ject. What was It the Republican con
vention said? Tho matter may be found
in any political nlmanne. "The
American people from tradition and In
terest favor bimetallism, and the Re
publican party demands tho use of both
gold and silver n3 standard money,
with Htich restrictions and undor such
provisions to bo determined by legisla
tion as will socuro tbo maintenance of
tho parity of values of tho two
metals, so that the purchasing
and debt paying power of tho dol

shall bo at all times equal. The In

Its farmers and Its worklngmon, de
mnnd that every dollar, paper or coin,
issued by tho government shall be as
good ub any other. We commend the
vtsc nnd patriotic stcpn already taken
b our government to secure an Inter
national conference to adopt such
measures as will insure a parity of
voluo between gold and silver for use
as money throughout tho world."
And what did the Democrats say upon
the same subject? "Wo donounco the
Republican legislation known as the
Sherman act of 1S90 as a cowardly
makoshlft.fraught with tbo possibilities

of the two metals and the equal power

claration concerning the Sbermnn bill,
in which Sherman himself concurred
when tho campaign was over, tho plat

Is a straddle no Is tbo other. The
struggle to maintain tho parity between

condition which we now find, a con
dition to which tho Sherman law con
tributed very largely. The moment the
executlvo authority abates the struggle
and offers to redeem greenbacks In sil

Is on a silver bnsls. That is the bash
upon which silver monomotallists de

an party, through tho silence of its
loaders, through its opposition to the
efforts of tho Democratic executlvo to
retain the parity shows its sympathy
with silver monometallism, it will,
however, talk of bimetallism as though
such a thing were possible save by uni
versal consent. If tho metals cannot
bo held at a parity there Is no more

W. P. Williams, ono of the Idolaters
at the Chicago feast of St. Hamilton,
addressed a prayer to the Republican
party with a superfluity of "O's" and a
hopeless confusion of "yous" and
"Ihouo." "O Republican party!" he ex
claimed, with awesome fervor, "you to
whom tho people always turn in tho
hour of national peril, thou pillar of
cloud by day and pillar of lire by night,
iieier more than now were the eyes of
tb lt people turned supplicating upon
you, And never more than now can
yoi bo Implicitly rolled upon to hear
and heed the cry and save the nation as
of yore." Mr. WllllatnB Is but one of a
multitude who look upon the republic
an party as the great Jovo of their pan
theon, a living entity, a deity to be ap
proached with profound reverence and
self-abasement nnd besought with teara
nnd anguish of soul deliverance from
diritross and the bestowment of bless
ings. He Is but ono of a multitude who.
Instead of regarding their party In the
light of a voluntary organization of
human beings having sonic purpose in
common, have come to look upon It ns
a superior being possessing tllvlno at
tributes of wisdom and power, a being
to bo worshiped and adored.
Hut Mr. Williams is especially to be
commended bcciuso ho is not ashamed
of his idolatry. He Is entitled to a cer
tain amount of admiration for his bold
ness in coming right to the front and
offering a public prayer to his imagin
ary god. with all the usual forms of
solemn diction.' Thousands of his fel
low Idolaters olfor just such prayers in
thought, and otten suggest them In con
versation and sometimes In public
speech, but it Isn't every day that one
of them stands forth, folds his hands,
shuts his eyes and says: "O thou re
publican party, pillar of cloud!" etc., to
tho end of formal but fervent prayer.
Aro such idolaters really fit for self
government? Tho republic needs men
who can think and act for themselves,
not men who pray to a nonenlty and for
nncwer take tho orders of party bosses.

Recent murder mysteries sorvo to
recall that of Princess Caravolla, a sin

a party o'f friends at dinner at tbo
Caravclln palace and as she had prom
ised to attend a ball toward midnight
she wont to her bedroom to He down
for a few minutes' rest to refresh her
self for the dnnce.
At 11 o'clock her maid entered tho
room to awaken her, whereupon tho
princess asked her to return a little
later, and twonty minutes afterward,
whon. she returned, the girl found her
mistress still lying on her bed with
scarcely a muscle of the face changed,
but stono dead, with the mark of a
tiny bullet In tbo region of tho heart.
Tho maid's shrieks quickly brought
tho prince and the whole household to
the room and within ton minutes the
judicial and police authorities arrived.
It w.as clear that no stranger fired tho
shot, since the bedroom was situated
on the third floor, and no one had en
tered tho gates of the palace between
the hour of 10 o'clock and midnight.
At length tho prince was arrested on
a charge of having murdered his wife
with tbo little pistol which lay by her
side on tho tablo, and ono chamber of
which was empty, color being lent to
the accusation by the fact that he was
His trial resulted In acqulttnl, partly
lu consequence of an extraordinary
piece of testimony which was produced
In court by one of tho police officials.
Tho story ho related was thla:
A couple of days after the" murder
on the removal of tho seals from tho
doors of tho bedroom he had made a
careful Investigation of tho apartment
and had found on tho floor by tho bed
side ono of thoso enormous night
moths, tho bodies of which are almost
as thick ns a man's thumb and which
abound In Itnly.
Ho declared that tho moth's wings
were badly singed, ns if it had flown
against tho candle that stood on tbo
tablo by the bedside.
He produced tbo moth In court and
then proceeded to point out to tho judges
that some of tho powder of tho in
sect's wings was apparent on tho black
ebony und gold stock and trigger of the
Iittlo revolver which had been found
on tho table and with which the shoot
ing had been done.
Ho then called tho attention of tho
judges and jury to the phenomenal
facility with which the trigger yielded
and advanced tho extraordinary argu
ment that tho princess had boon mur
dered by tho night moth, which, bo al
leged, must have flown Into the room,
attracted by tho candle light, and, fall
ing with singed wings on the tablo,
bad discharged tho revolver in the vio
lence of Its contortions.

There has been described by a clover

possession over two hundred ertificates
of its value, all within twenty milei of

cause squeamish feelings at first.
