Manila correspondence Lincoln Jour
nal: Between Calumpit and Calumpan
that wandering regiment of Nebraska
volunteers has taken up an abode as
transient as peace. They have lived
for the past three days in the nipa
huts lining the road between the two
towns. The shelter is opportune, for
the rainy season is opening up with al
most nightly manifestations, and the
boys have several times endured the
miseries of the deluge, with nothing
"between" but a scanty poncho.
The men are expecting orders to go
ahead, yet have not given up hopes of
being relieved. The hope, however,
seems a faint one, and doomed to dis
appointment, Great expectations were
raised and dashed by the recent Fili
pino commission farce, in which the
two rebel officers asked an armistice
instead of signifying some more defi
nite intention of surrender. The sooner
this thing is ended the better we will
be pleased. We are tired of killing
and being killed. At home the fond
hope may be indulged that the trouble
in the Philippines is over, but in yean
to come, when this regiment is but a
name, the press will be filled from time
to time with stories of rupture with
rebel bands of Filipinos.
In coming, up upon Calumpit after
that memorable Sunday, our regiment
was given a somewhat easier position.
For the first time our boys were taken
in from the rapidly swinging right
flank to a middle position, which did
not compel them to cover so much
ground. The fighting was easier, too,
but it was in this advance that Legg
and Hansen received their mortal
wounds, and Majors his very serious
The trenches on the other side of the
river, which must be crossed before
reaching Calumpit, were wonders in
their way. They were evidently built
to be impregnable to field artillery.
With a basis of earth, they were ribbed
together by railroad ties, and armored
with sheet steel and railroad iron.
They extended in series, occupying a
frontage upon our line of advance of
beteen two and three miles. With port
holes snugly burrowed through and
well susplied with a store of ammuni
tion and "chow," the swarms of insur
gents who lined up behind these young
fortresses probably thought to make
the American advance decidedly un
pleasant. They pulled up the railroad
track on both sides of the stream, tore
out a span of the iron bridge, and cut
ting down the trees and undergrowth
which obstructed their view of the
country over which we must march,
awaited the coming of their enemy by
Well, when the generals got every
thing fixed they pushed their infantry
up to the river bank right under the
nose of the iron-bound works. No one
needed to tell the men to lie down.
They snuggled down into the dirt like
"dust to dust, returning" some did;
others were only more or less sorely
woflnded. The insurgents did all the
shooang then. The sun was a little
way up. Somebody indulging In a
thoughtless fiction said that it occurred
in the "cool of the morning."
Following close upon the infantry
came every piece of artillery that could
be put into action, the "three-two"
guns, the quick-fire Nordenfeldt, and
rapid-fire Hotchkiss thunderers, seven
or eight in all. Training the first
three-tow" (three and twe-tenths Inch
bore) upon the trenches, the gunner
sprang aside and pulled the strinep-
Standard Beet Sagar Factory.
.The work of putting in the founda
tion of the Standard Beet Sugar fac
tory at Ames was completed Monday
and as the steel plates and beams for
the building itself are already on the
track at the grounds the building will
soon begin to loom up, the largest
sugar factory in Nebraska.
The new factory, which will have
double the capacity of either the Grand
Island or Norfolk factories, is situated
two miles north and half a mile west
of Ames, west of the place known as
the Mills farm. The object in locating
it there instead of in town was to have
it as centrally located for the farmers
as possible, thus saving the time and
expense of the company and the farm
ers in hauling beets over a road some
times not in the best condition. Ground
was broken for the building as soon
as the weather would permit, which
was the first week In April. The Union
Pacific railroad built a side track from
the east end of the Ames yard, a mile
and a half north, then northwesterly
along the side of the cutoff ditch a
mile and a half to the factory, and
put in several switch tracks at the
site. The Elkhorn extended its line
from the Union Pacific crossing, a mile
east of Ames, to Ames, connecting
with the Union Pacific switch. All
the material and machinery can thus
be laid down directly at the site, thus
saving considerable expense in haul
ing. The main building is 300x100 feet.
The foundation consists of piles drive?
into the ground twenty-five feet, then
cut off eight feet below the surface,
making a platform about ten feet
square. Between 1.S00 and 2,000 piles
were used for the foundation of this
and other buildings, the platforms of
piles being about ten feet apart. On
them was placed a pillar of steel
welded together with concrete eight
feet in height. The buildings, except
a few of the smaller ones, will be
entirely fireproof, no wood being used
in their construction, the floors being
of concrete and the framework of steel
and the walls of brick.

It was the first American voice of
the morning. It said, "Buenos dias"
to the rebels, with sharp candor. Some
of them stopped firing as the boys
snuggled along the brow of the river
bank, and fired volleys at the smoke
of the gun. Our long skirmish line,
however, had awakened. The boom
of tbe big gun had set it on fire. Vol
leys began to rip up the river, and all
the way down again, while all of our
guns turned in to hammer away at the
insurgent works, but without making
much of an impression upon the sturdy
The infantry men seemed to under
stand when they got the order, "rapid
fire" that they were expected to go
over the river and drive the "niggers"
out. For a time, the air was filled
with roaring, the Filipinos answering
with volley tumbling over volley.
Then our men began to go across the
river, some with full equipment, others
stripped of their clothes, holding only
to their guns and belts. The water
was shallow and there was little need
When tne rebels saw the Americans
come scrambling up their steep bank,
they fired and fled, unable to face such
a grimly determined charge. But
strange to say. fully half of the rebels,
too fully occupied to notice the num
bers crossing the river, were caught
by our attacking force inside their
trenches, and many were shot down
before tuey could get away.
It is said that five Nebraska men
were among the first to ford the river.
As they climbed the opposite bank,
they shouted back through the din of
the firing for their comrade to shoot
the "niggers' as they chased them out.
The work was one of a series of short
ones, and our boys entering around one
end flank sent the surprised rebels
flying out by the other flank and into
the hre of our men upon the opposite
bank of the narrow stream.
It was a sorry day for the rebels
probably the scene of their most
crushing defeat. We have trusted that
it would do much to discourage them,
seeing all their laborious efforts so
soon overthrown, and so many of
their number killed and woucdeo.
The Krag-.Torgensen rifles issued to

of these rifles, as well as regulars, as

are better acquainted with the proper
ties and mechanism of arms than the
regular soldier. Beth regular and

in time of need the "Krag" is an un

Koplaeaa In Milk and Cream.
Prof. A. R. Ward of the Cornell
Experiment Station, on the subject of
ropy milk and cream, says:
"Ropiness in milk is one of the most
serious troubles milk dealers have to
contend with. This condition, which
is objectionable more on account of its
unwholesome appearance, than from
any known harmful effect which it pro
duces, has received its popular desig
nation from the viscid, slimy con
sistency which characterizes the af
fected milk. The cause has been found
to be the action of certain bacteria,
fand a number of apparently different
species have been described as bav
ins; the power of .producing the ropy
condition. Among those who have
written on this subject should be men
tioned Adametz, Loeffler, Guillebeau
and Marshall. Nevertheless, few defi
nite determinations have been made
concerning the natural habitat of these
particular species of bacteria and the
channels through which they gain en
trance to the milk. Further informa
tion on these points is especially de
sired in order to successfully combat
the trouble and to prevent its recur
rence. This trouble, which is wide
spread and of considerable economic
importance to milk dealers and butter-
makers, should not be confused with
the abnormal changes in milk which
accompany an inflamed condition of
the udder frequently called "garget."
Milk drawn from udders in this con
dition is more or less thickened by the
presence of pus, or may in addition
contain white, tough solid masses of
casein, which pass through the duct of
the teat with more or less difficulty.
Milk in such condition is by some
called ropy, and consequently it has
been asserted that a diseased condition
of tbe udder is the cause of all ropy
milk. The investigations which have
heretofore been made do not throw
any definite light upon this alleged
cause. They do not suggest a neces
sary dependence upon a diseased con
dition of the udder, although they do
not preclude the possibility of such a
After relating several experiences,
tbe professor gives the following con
clusions: "Ropiness is a fault of milk which
does not necessarily depend for its
cause upon the health of the cows. It
is said to be caused by any one of sev
eral 'different species ot bacteria. I
have found bacillus lactis vlscosus to
be the cause of viscid milk in two dif
ferent creameries. In the two out
breaks investigated the trouble was
found to be caused by tbe use of milk
utensils which bad not been sufficiently
scalded. Tbe bacteria, remaining in
the cans which had previously con
tained viscid milk, were able to sur
vive tbe washing and remain alive to
Infect new quantities of milk. Greater
care In scalding utensils brought the
trouble to an end. All small utensils
were Immersed In boiling water for
three minutes, and the larger cans were
filled to the brim with scalding water
which was allowed to remain for the
same length of time. A thorough in
vestigation of the sources from wbkh
the bacteria might have entdred the
milk at the stables and of sources else
where, failed to reveal the presence of
bacillus lactis vlscosus. Nevertheless,
from the work of Adametz, there is
reason to suspect that during warm
weather these particular bacteria get
into tbe milk from water. The im
portance of thorough scalding of ves
sels which have once contained ropy
milk is urged upon the consumer as
well as the dealer. Bacteria may read
ily be transferred from running water
to milk by tbe agency of mud, which,
drying upon the udder, may be dis
lodged during milking. Milk utensil?
which have been used for containing
water should be scalded before using
again for milk. Tbe apparent purity
of water used about a creamery gives
no assurance that it is free from bacteria."
ply good, vigorous specimens, capable
of giving plenty of milk. The quality
must come from the sire, where qual
ity means most, because one animal
can Impart it to so many. Such asso
ciations as these can render the horse
interests a valuable service by using
every influence to hasten the day of
stallion inspection and license here in
America. This farmer we are con?
sidering is not a horseman; that is, is
not able to detect the slighter faults
of animals. The hock may be slightly
too narrow, or the leg a little crooked,
or the bone net quite flat enough, or
the loin a little light, and he will not
be able to detect it, I know a farmer
who considers himself something of a
horseman who yet did not notice a
bind leg of a colt so poor at the hock
that it was certain to go to pieces. I
know a part-bred Percheron stallion
that is considered a great horse with
the farmers because be takes fat like
a hog and has a heavy, arching neck,
but his sickle hock gives him a leg so
bent as to entirely disqualify him in
the eye of even a fair judge. So do
other parts escape the notice of a clas
of good men who are not at all ignor
ant, but whose information and ex
pert knowledge lie'along other lines.
The inspector and the law should help
them out As it is now, the owner of
a strictly first-class, well-bred and reg
istered stallion has no chance out over
the country as compared with the own
er of a part-bred horse that will fatten
readily, and that, costing but a frac
tion of the other, can be stood for per
haps only two or three dollars less
and get all the custom. This compels
the owner of the good stallion to cut
prices to a point where in order to se
cure decent returns so much service Is
taken as to render next to worthless
a large share of the colts gotten. We
shall produce plenty of scalawag
horses until the part-bred stallion is
driven out of business, and that will
be done only by a system of inspec
tion. It costs as much to raise a poor
horse as it does a good one. Tbe de
ficient hock or loin is not a thing that
takes less feed. It is no element of
cheapness until it comes before the old
horseman in the great markets, and
the general horse raiser must be in
sured against his own foolishness in
this matter by a thorough system oi
Inspection. Until that time comes the
great breeders and improvers of horses
will be subject to a ruinous competition
from part-bred stallions.
Tbe system that has been in vogue
has produced some good horses, but
it has produced a good many more poor
ones. The horse is a highly developed
animal, and all his part3 are developed
far beyond their natural state. If, in
a given individual, one part is not fully
developed it cannot stand the strain
put upon it by tbe other and better de
veloped parts, and it is with a horse
as with a chain, or a tile drain, the
whole is no better than the poorest
spot What a mixed and heterogeneous
mass of horseflesh we have been guilty
of producing! And yet the stallioneer
and the law are more in tbe blame
than the farmer. The horse raiser
should fix his mind definitely upon the
class of horses that he proposes to pro
duce, choose bis stallion accordingly
and depend upon him for that quality
that always distinguishes the excellent
from the ordinary. He should never,
sleeping or waking, forget his own
limitations, but remember that while
the professional horseman must pro
duce the breeder, tbe racer, and the
phenomenal Individuals out of the best
material of tbe world, yet that the pro
duction of the great mass of com
mercial horses out of common mares
and by approved sires is his own pe
culiar field, In which good profits can
always be realized, if the farmer keep3
bis head and does not produce worth
less stuff. Cheap horses are recruited
with sufficient rapidity from the ranks
above, both by age and accident, and
we cannot afford to grow them as '

How old must an egg be to be
strictly fresh? We would say that that
would dedpend on the weather, says
the Epitomlst During cold weather
a week old egg will be strictly fresh,
but half that time is all that will be
allowed during warm weather. We
have been asked how to preserve eggs
so as to keep tbem fresh from three
to six months. There is no way that
it can be done. Unlike wine, eces do
not improve with age. A fresh egg
must be fresh laid or it will not be
fresh. Packed eggs are sold for such
and can be readily told by almost any
one. By far too many people pay too
little attention to gathering and sell
ing their eggs. They seem to think
that the egg from the "new nest" Is as
good as any. or eggs kept for two
weeks are fresh eggs. This is not so.
and when taken to the store or sold,
it is purely dishonest During hot
weather eggs ought to reach the con
sumer when not over three days old to
be strictly fresh. As we have stated
before, we have had some experience
in buying eggs from farmers for our
large retail traue in "rancy" goods.
While we can always rely on eggs from
certain farms, we look closely at eggs
from probably the next farm. We
were asked the other day if we didn't
think that a person could rely on get
ting really fresh eggs by offering a
cent or two more than the market
price for eggs. We answered with an
emphatic no. To illustrate this point:
A certain party near here gets eggs,
beside his own, from some dozen
neighbors, giving more for them than
tbe market price. One day he was
asked by another neighbor, who keeps
a good many hens (he is a progressive
farmer of good report) if he would
take his eggs also. The party said
yes. The following week, after get
ting eggs from this new place a cus
tomer said that several eggs were bad
and made quite a time about it. The
next time eggs were gotten from this
farm they were tested and several
were found to be bad, which finished
Care of Turkey Coops.
A turkey hates to get Into her coop
at night unless it has been moved dur
ing the day. writes Miss E. J. Pine in
"Turkeys and How to Grow them." If
it Is changed every day she soon re
gards It as a safe place to keep her
little family over night Should it rain
in the night, change It that it may be
clean for the day. Filth is a deadly
foe to a young turkey in confinement
I have always kept my coops on tho
ground. An experienced raiser who
has tried floors prefers the ground, as
it is more natural and healthful. I
think it Is a good plan to keep a box
skunk trap set at night near the coops.
When the turkeys get large enough to
fly over a stone wall, they will wander
further away, and there is danger from
hawks and foxes. I keep track of their
whereabouts as well as I can. which
takes me outdoors no more than is nec
essary for my good health. I have had
them so wild that they have caused me
considerable trouble, but it was caused
by introducing new blood through
strange hens instead of the gobbler
The latter is the better way.
