By private gifts n Japanese fellow
ship in coonomlcs has been established
at tho University of Wisconsin, and
Mr. M. Shlozawn of Tokyo, Japan, has
been elected to tho fellowship for tho
coming year. Mr. Shtozawa is highly
recommended by two distinguished
Jnpancso professors, Professor Iyenaga
of tho Higher Commercial College of
Tokyo, Japan, and Professor Motora, of
tho Imperial University, of tho samo
city. Ho is spoken of as ono of tho
talented young men of Japan, and it is
expected he will do a great work for
his natlvo country. Ho has already
graduated from a Japanese collego and
has published results of his work.
One safeguard of tho country is a
Judgo who refuses to grant naturaliza

cent naturalization cases. Ono appli
cant frankly admitted that ho did not
understand tho constitution, and the
judgo refused to ndmlt him to cltlzon

mands that naturalization tests should
bo made more rigid, rather than easier.

The adherents of Don Carlos In Spain
are apparently on the point of an at
tempt to establish a now order of
things on the ruin of tho present
Spanish throne. Carlos is reported to
have said that his followers aro now
all drilled, organized and armed, and
only await tho word for revolt. As
Spain is engaged in putting down the
war in Cuba and also in the Philippine
Islands, tho favorable opportunity
seems to havo come. Spain is nearly
exhaustud. especially as 10 her finances.
A rebellion of the Carllsts would prob
ably complete her overthrow and at tho
same time Becure the liberty of Cuba.
A great war at home would destroy the
power of the government to borrow
money, and the slnows of war would
thus have disappeared. Besides that,
eome parts of tho country would bo held
by tho insurgents, and In those por
tions tho government would be able
to neither collect customs nor rnise
troops. There is n third power, that of
the Spantsh Republicans, that may
make Itself felt, and Is indeed said to
he actlvo at the present time. These
Republicans might object to a Carlist
king as ravch as to the ono now ruling.
In that case tho Carlists would prob
ably havo to merge their differences
with the Republicans, taking what they
could got of the public offices. Wheth
er Spain is advanced enough to sustain
a republican form of government re
mains to be demonstrated.

Uiliic the K rim rut or.
In running a separator, do not have
tho milk needlessly warm. Mr. Wage
ner, instructor in butter making at
Cornell university, teaches that SO de
grees Is bettor thau a higher tempera
ture. Ho believes that probably tho
most Important point in running a sep
arator is tho thickness of tho cream,
and says: Adjust your separator so
that your croam will be as thick as
you can churn. By this I mean as thick
as can bo and yet fall from end to end
of a revolving churn and not stick to
tho sides when churning. Such cream
will generally contain 35 to 45 per cent
of fat. I consider this a very important
point. Cream containing 40 per cent of
fat will churn moro quickly and leavo
less fat in the buttermilk at 55 de
grees thau will cream containing 18 to
20 per cent at 60 degrees. Tho secret
of quick churning at tho very low tem
perature 52 to 55 degrees, which we
know to bo the best Is to have your
cream very rich. This Is an advantago
you cannot secure from cold settings,
it being ullllcult to obtain cream of this
class with much over 18 to 20 per cent
of fat Tho second point of great im
portance is to cool tho cream at onco to
a low temperature at least 55 degrees
and hold it there for a few hours be
fore warming it up to ripen. When
ever, in summer time, we aro troubled
with cream that coagulates before It
geto much ncld, or with different
churnings, which some of us have, I
feel sure that chilling the cream direct
ly from the separator will help greatly.
We shall get better grain, better flavor,
and more satisfactory results In every
way. I believe that this matter of care
less handling of cream after it is sep
arated is the rock upon which many
butter makers split.

A few horses, like people, are bad
tempered and vicious by nature, but
they aro more raro than human beings
of that class. The majority of bad
horses aro made bo by unkind or un
wise treatment, and most of the ovll
Is dono while they aro yet colts or In
tho process of breaking. A horseman
cannot bo too gentle. The only way to
feed grain to a horse economically, so
that ho will got tho most good from
the amount consumed, Is to feed it af
ter tho stomach has been partly filled
with coarser food; then digestion and
assimilation will be moro complete, but
theso minor things aro thoso of which
the average person never thinks, says
New York Farmer. Tho time to sell
jt horse, after you havo raised him and
rando him ready for market, is when
over you aro offered a good price for
him. By holding for a fancy figure you
aro very apt to let tho best customers
slip by, and the expenso of keeping will
begin to rapidly diminish tho possible
profit. It is desirable to have the colt
foaled in tho fall rather than in the
spring. Ho is then weaned in spring,
when fresh grass is ready for him to
feed upon. Kept in the stable through
tho winter, ho can be trained nnd han
dled aB ho should bo from tho very first.
If he comes in the busy season he Is
moro apt to be neglected. Fast horse
men condemn tho draft horso as too
largo for the farm and too slow for the
city streots, whllo for flro engines and
the express wagons tho American trot
ter was tho only suitable horse; tho
clumsy draft horse could never bo of
any practical use. How much they
were mistaken.

Somebody ought to establish a hoeing
school and teach our young people and
our hired men how to use a hoe, is the
opinion of a writer In Pomona Her
ald. It makes mo sick when I see how
our help do this Important work. The
fundamental error with them is to
think that tho purpose of hoeing is to
kill weeds and nothing else. Conse
quently they Just skip over the surface,
trying to hit the weeds, and if no weeds
happen to bo there the spot is skipped
over untouched. When the job is dono
our man or men think tho weeds are
dono for; but in a few days the ground
fs again well occupied. The fact is
this scraping over the surface is not by
any meana the best way to kill weeds,
aud It amounts to nothing much in
other respects. A good hoeing should
touch and stir tho whole surface, and
freshen It, and give tho weeds such a
set-back that they will not recover
from it in a long time. When I hoe
I let tho hoe go in cornerwise, and
whon I get dono there is no spot that
is left with the old crust on. whether
thero were weeds or not. The fresh
ground, soon after hoeing, looks smooth
and clean and attractive. There Is an
inch of well-pulverized soil all over the
whole surface, and the plants, thus
surrounded by fresh, moist, loose soil,
uem to be grateful and respond with
quickened growth.
Iriigation In Japan. The largest
aiea of agricultural land in Japan is
devoted to raising rice, perhaps an
much as nine-tenths of tho whole, and
as that crop requires a great deal of
water, the paddy fields are banked up
Into terraces, one abovo tho other, and
divided ff into little plats, 23 or 30
feet square, with ridges of earth bu
tween them to keep tho water from
flowing away when thoy are flooded.

It Is now considered well for every
young woman, no matter how limited
her list of acquaintances, to havo one
dress cut low. Indeed, some go to the
extreme of wearing theso dresses at
homo In the evening. When the dress
is merely cut V front and back the
fashion Is very pretty and one which
we would all wish to see advanced.
For nothing makes a pretty girl so at
tractive as tho inward consciousness
that she is looking her best.
For formal affairs the dress is cut
with a low, round nock, to reveal the
graceful shouldors which, attention to
hygiene is giving our maidena. The
gown should have a lacey effect, and
Just at present artificial flowers may
be worn, although some very Justly
object to them.

Why Widow Should .Murrr Acnln.
A discussion In Bome European
papers of tho question as to whether
widows should marry again has
brought out the statistician with some
more or less Interesting figures. Ac
cording to M. Morsclll, who is an au
thority on the subject, out of 3C5 men
who committed suicide In Italy, 100
were married, 108 were bachelors and
157 were widowers. In France it la
among the widowers that oulcldo finds
the most victims. As regards married
women, out of every 100 who commit
Biiicldo in Italy and France tho ma
Jorly are widows. In France the num
ber of widows who commit suicide is
twice as great as that of women whoso
husbands aro living. From these sta
tistics M. Morsclll concludes that
widows and widowers aro far moro
likely to bo driven to despair and death
than other men and women, and tint,
therofore, It is tho duty of society to
encourago them to marry again. On
the other hand, M. G. Labadie-La-gravo
does not think much of these
statistics. "Tho conclusions arrived
at," he says, "seem to me very much
exaggerated. If so many widows nro
unnblo to support tho burdens of life,
It Is not chagrin at tho loss of their
husbands which drives them to com
mit suicide, but rather anxiety as to
how they shall support themselves and
their children. And it is very prob
able that tho reason why they remain
widows is not because they desire to
remain true to their husbands, but be
cause they cannot find men who are
willing to burden thomselves with the
support of them and their children."

mention is a characteristic of some
skins. There is no way to change H.
As for tho blackheads, they may bo
steamed out with water as hot as can
be borne. Then uso a little cold cream
to keep the skin smooth, It is one of
tho Important parts of the process to
cleanse the skin thoroughly every night
before letlrlng. This will keep tho
blackhends from returning.
