Do you know the size of your vari

it? You ought to know exactly, not
only that you may accurately estimate
fertilizer needed for the land, but that
you may know the crop yields.
Not a single apple should go to
waste. What cannot be marketed, or
used by the family should be gath

fruit left on the ground not only is
a dead loss, but it insures a good in

cause bitter and other flavors. Some
times also they produce growths in

The matter of short or long period
of milking of cows is a matter of
habit. For this reason if during her
ilrst period of lactation she is milked
legularly to within a few weeks of
dropping her second calf, she accepts
this as her destiny. On the contrary,
if the milking period with first calf
is limited to four months, it will be a
difficult matter to overcome the incli
nation here as elsewhere, to follow
in the old path. The only remecly is
persistent milking even when but very
little milk can be obtained.

Dr. B. T. Galloway of the depart

variety of wheat known as "Alaska"
not a new variety, but one which has
been known for many years in this
country and Europe, and one which
has been tried at several state experi
ment stations in the western United
States during the past 15 years. But
nowhere, he declares, have the yields
been high enough to merit attention.
The wheat has been grown to a very
limited extent on certain heavy un
d rained soils in Prance for many
years. In such locations it is said to
yield rather better than ordinary
wLeaVbut as it is one of the poorest
wheats known for making flour, it is
never grown where the ordinary vari

Experiment seems to prove that
chicks grow faster upon soft mashes
than upon dry grains. There seems
to be least danger from bowel loose
ness when the dry grains only are
fed, and it is very essential that the
mash be dry enough to crumble in
order to avoid that difficulty. Young
chicks like the moist mash better than
though it was not moistened and will
eat more of it. There is no danger
from the free use of the properly
made mash twice a day, and being al
ready ground the young birds can eat
and digest more of it than when the
food is all coarse.
Do you know how much it costs you
to raise your calves? It would prove
interesting and profitable for you to
keep a record. Prof. Shaw of Michi
gan did so, and found that the Hoi
stein calf used in the experiment the
first year of its life 381 pounds of
whole milk, 2.5C8 pounds of skim
milk. 1,262 pounds of silage. 219
pounds of beet pulp, 1,254 pounds of
hay. 1,247 pounds of grain, 147 pounds
of roots, 14 pounds ot alfalfa meal
and 50 pounds of green corn. The
grain ration consisted of three parts
each of corn and oats and one part of
bran and oil meal. At the end of the
year the calf weighed 800 pounds at
a cost of $28.55 for feed.
By the eld pan process of raising
cream in the summer time much of
the butter fat is lost, as it fails to rise.
The milk is soured by the time little
more than half the cream contained in
the milk has risen to the surface, and
that which has already risen is soured
beyond the point where it makes good
butter. In the summer a hand sep
arator is needed to get all the cream.
In the winter one is needed to get the
cream separated from the milk as
quick'y as possible that the milk mav

mal heat still there. There is no sea
son of the year when the hand sep
arator is not just the machine to have

Bloody milk may be caused by a
variety of conditions. Dr. Schroeder
declares that some claim that the cow
fighting flies, kicking and throwing
the body to and fro, will tend -to rup
ture the small blood vessels and thus
cause the trouble. Others hold that
the steady diet of green, succulent
food and perhaps the derangement of
the blood caused by certain weeds,
bring on this trouble. The latter opin
ion the doctor is inclined to believe
for it has been his observation that
many cases can be cured by changing
the pasture or changing the feed. "We
have cured cases of bloody milk," he
goes on to say, "by giving sulphur and
saltpeter mixed half and half in thf
feed. Whether or not this is a sur
cure I can not say, but it might be
The proper temperature for churn
ing is the lowest temperature which
can be used and produce proper gran
ules within a reasonable time. A rea
sonable time is from thirty to forty
five minutes, and fifty minutes or an
hour is not too long. The colder the
temperature, the better the granules
and the less fat lost. The real churn
ing temperature is the temperature at
which the butter breaks. This is
from two to -four degrees higher than
the starting temperature, from the
friction of the machine. If the gran
ules form in less than 25 minutes,
you may be certain that the tempera
ture was higher than it should have
been. If the butter comes in 15 -minutes
or leos, a large amount of fat is
lost in the buttermilk and the butter
will be soft and greasy in texture.
Ordinarily from 56 degrees, to 60 de
grees is about the right temperature.

For those contemplating a tour to
Europe, Hungary offers an embarrass
ing choice of beauty spots. The fol
lowing is Miss Alice Stronach's inter
esting story of her visit to the coun
try of the Magyars:
"Late spring and early autumn are
the best times for a visit to Hungary.
True, there are winter spots in the
Tatra to attract the enthusiast for
these, and in summer's heat delicious
cool may be found at the many lovely
mountain spas, whose marvels of
scenery and of healing springs are far
too little known to English victims of
gout and rheumatism and other ail
ments. But the extremes of cold and
heat make traveling on the great plain
of Hungary well-nigh intolerable in
the depth of winter or the height of
summer. Autumn, when a glory of
crimson and gold begins to sweep
over forest and mountain, 'and the Al
fold, or lowland, teems with mellow
fruitfulness, is a delightful time for a
tour in Hungary: and, moreover, the
traveler who times his visit then can
count on seeing something of the Hun
garian vintage, a festival iecullarly
fascinating in the land of the csardas,
the home of picturesque costume and
gypsy music. .
"The Hungarians are not ye infected
with the strenuousness of their Brit
ish and American visitors, and we
found life in our little mountain spa
of Trenscen-Teplitz. on our arrival
there, a restful and pleasant change
'from the bustle of a London season.
We sampled the baths, whose strong
sulphur waters attracted visitors from
Vienna, Germany and all parts of
Hungary; listened to the music of the
gypsy band, that played in the morn
ing in a lime-tree allee, in the even
ing in the casino; had picnic teas in
the woods on the spurs of the Little
Carpathians, and dined in the garden
of a little inn, where we first experi
enced the joy of eating kukuruks
(heads of maize), and drinking a de
licious wine that our host called tokay,
possibly a distant cousin of that im
perial wine. And always there was
the sensation of living in a fairy tale,
where ever' peasant girl might be a
princess and every swineherd a prince
in disguise. The shops with their
quaint, naive signs a crusty loaf to
denote the baker's, a realistic ham at
the butcher's, a beaker foaming at the
brim, or a cup frothing over with
cream, to tell where beer or coffee
might be had deepened the sense of
fairy tale or pantomime.
"Our later wanderings took us to
others of the wonderful medicinal spas
which, well known to the Austrians.
Hungarians, and Poles are too little
known in England.
"On leaving Trenscen we traveled
down the Danube, when an hour's
journey brought us to Orsova, a quaint
oriental town on the Roumanian bor
der just above the Iron Gates. A gen
tle specimen of the unspeakable Turk
rowed us across to the island of Ada
Kaleh. midway in the Danube, where
EWfif 1CN jr :
the people of a Turkish colony live
under Hungarian protection, exempt
from taxes and military service, mak
ing life picturesque for themselves
and for the strangers who visit them
to sip Turkish coffee and buy Turkish
wares at their funny little shops.
"The finest stretch of the Danube
lies just above Orsova, and the day's
voyage from there to Belgrade was
well worth the early start on a chill
October morning. The glorious scen
ery of the defile of Kazan, the coming
and going of peasant folk of many na
tionalities Servians, Hungarians, Rou
manians, and people from farther east,
with an occasjonal grand Turk .spread
ing his praying-carpet on the deck at
sunset, make a steamer-voyage on that
part of the Danube memorable.
"There is. indeed, no pleasanter
mode of travel in Hungary than by
the steamers that ply on the Danube
and the Tisza, and it has the advan
tage of economy, since fares are low
and you can sleep as well as have
meals on board.
"Our steamer anchored just above
the flashing crown of electric lights
that marked Belgrade, and, after a
day spent in the capital of King
Peter's kingdom, where there is a
fascinating market, we took train for
Szeged. Not that we had any special
wish to see that prosperous but some
what prosaic town, which has been
rebuilt on the site of one washed
away by the floods of the river Tisza,
some 30 years ago. It was but a con
venient stopping-place on the way to
the most fascinating part of Hungary,
Transylvania; and its shops and thea
ter and picture-gallery, even its market-place,
ablaze with costume and
aflame with red pepper, did not tempt
us to linger.
"For time was flying, and to leave
Hungary without making a tour in
Transylvania would be to miss the
finest forest and mountain scenery,
the most bewitching variety of cos
tume, the most characteristic portion
of the land of the Magyars. It is m
Transylvania that many Magyar no
bles have their country seats, and
there the best shooting is to be had.
the most delightful hospitality is dis
pensed. It' is a vast country, and up
in the mountains and off the beaten
track the traveler may have occasion
ally to rough it. Another pleasant
town is Nagy-Szeben (German, Her
mannstadt), where you seem to stum
ble into the middle ages or a Faust
legend, so old-world are its cobbled
streets, its churches and houses, and
market-place peopled with Saxons,
Roumanians, and Hungarians in pic
turesque costumes. Both Negy-Sze-ben,
and Brasso (German, Kronstadt),
a few hours nearer the Roumanian
border of Hungary, are good centers
for excursions among the peaks of the
Carpathians. The Carpathian club has
mountain shelters where travelers can
obtain simple fare and beds, and is
ever ready to help the stranger with
advice and information from its offi
ces in these towns.
"It was, however, too late in the sea
son for more than a flying visit to
some of the quaint little walled cita
dels of the Saxon settlers, whose for
tified churches tell of the surprise
visits of the Turks to dwellers -in
these regions. But before leaving
Brasso, I traveled as far as the Rou
manian border, and had glimpses "of
mountain scenery whose rugged
grandeur reminded me of the Scottish
