An attendant feature of a diary
farm is raising calves. The selec
tion should be made with an. eye to
profitableness in the- dairy, at an
early day, so their time and feed
will not be wasted on calves that
have no promise. The usual mums
of a good cow make themselves ap
parent at an early age and a suc
cessful dairy man is on the look
out for them
For many reasons the calf, as
soon as dropped, should be taken
from the cow and reared from the
pail. In this way, first, the dairy
man secures all the cream, as the
calf can be fed upon skimmed
milk. Second, he is entirely freed
from the management usual with
a calf at milking time. Third, as
the calf does not recognize its
mother, the two can be put into the
same pasture to graze. Fourthj
there is no such disaster possible
as the loss of milk, because “the
cows and calves got together.”
Fifth, the calf can be much more
rapidly pushed, as it can be judi
clously and properly fed from the
start. It requires some little ex
perience to teach a calf to drink
milk, and possibly the first efforts
may discourage the beginner. 1
can safely say the man who once
learns the art, will not return to
the old plan of leaving the calf to
draw the milk from its mother.
It is not well to attempt to feed
the calf immediately after its birth.
It should be a little hungry before
the trial is made, as it will then be
in a condition not to be specially
choice ai? to methods It is to be
understood that the instincts of the
calf are to be at ouee upset. To
get his milk, be wants to hold his
head up to find the udder; his mas
ter. wants to teach him that the
dinuer is down in the pail. This,
of course, must be done by physi
cal force, as there can be no intel
lectual communications. As soon
as the bands are put upon the calf
to force him, be struggles to re
lease himself. The first thing to
do, therefore, is to put him iu po
sition to be able to control him.
Back him into a corner and then
get astride of him, push his mouth
down into the milk and insert your
fingers into it as as asubstitue for
his mother’s teat. He soon begins
to draw the mils, if be is so secure
that be cannot back away fyom it.
The second time lie is fed, soon af
ter he begins to take the milk the
finger should be gradually with
drawn from bis mouth. If he will
not draw, the finger can be slightly
inserted again and the hand held
over his face in slight pressure to
take the place of what he expects
from his mothers udder. Until
he learns to find the milk down in
stead of up, his head must be
kept, by force, in the pail, with his
lips just touching the milk. In a
very short-time, with patience and
kind management, he will take the
milk all right and eagerly.
It must be distinctly understood
tbat cold milk (rill kill a young
calf. The milk must be brought
immediately upon being drawn
from the cow and given to the calf
while it is quite warm. If from
auy cause it should become cold it
must be heated before it is put
into the calf s stomach. It requires
two persons for the first few feeds
to manage a calf to advantage.
One man controls the calf, and the
other holds the milk, otherwise in
the scuffle for an elementary edu
cation somebody will “grieve over
spilt milk.” After the second day
it will only be necessary to put the
pail before the calf and he will
manage for himself. I do not find
it necessary to feed a calf oftner
than twice each day. I give it
about one quart of its mother’s
milk at each time for the first week,
increasing, the second week, to
half gallon, the third week to three
qnarts. The third week, however,
one quart of skimmed milk is mix
ed with two qnarts of whole milk
and warmed. The whole milk is
in this way, gradually withdrawn
until the feed is made entirely of
skimmed milk and gruel. As the
whole milk is taken out gruel made
of corn meal is substited and put
into the milk boiling hot so as to
warm up the milk to the proper
temperature; of this mixture the
man can conveniently spare.
It is very necessary to see that
the feed is warm and tbat the
amonnt is regularly given. After
one month a calf will take about a
gallon at a feed to advantage, the
amount can be increased as cir
cumstances justify. Any man who
undertakes the management of a
dairy with the purpose to raise his
calves after the old style, allowing
them to draw the rich milk from
their mothers, will have a deal of
unnecessary annoyance, and lose a
lage share of his profits.

What talismauic virtue is there
in the three brief words, “Beg your
pardon!” Yon dig yotft: elbow in
to a gentleman’s ribs in making
your way through a crowd, and as

phrase in deprecating tones. Down

grins horribly a ghastly smild and
bows bis bead as if in acknowledg-
m ent of an act of courtesy.
Passing along the avenue of

to the “move up” of the packing

which follows the deed as natural

If you wish to insult a man with
out imperiling’your personal safe
ty, disarm him in advance with
this saving clause, as thus: “Beg
your pardon, sir, bat what you suy
cannot be the fact; it is utterly im
possible.” The deprecatory prefix
is like a whiff of cloroform before
the pulling of a tooth. * Under the
influence of a full dose of it we
have known a regular fire-eater to
endure the lie circumstantial and
even the lie direct without winc
ing. “If” is a good plain-killer iu
some cases, bnt you may throw any
quality of moral vitriol in the face
of a person you dislike, with per
fect impunity, if yon accompany
the aspersion with plenty of “beg-

pjwer is the most royal of human
perogatives. It tickles one’s vani
ty to exercise it.
A few days ago a gentleman who
resides near Delta, came to Monte-
zuma. Soon after crossing Tote-
over creek a hog in the lane attack
ed him in his buggy. His mule
was a flue traveler, but the hog
kept up with him for a mile and a
half. When he would slow up a
little, the mad beast would attempt
to climb in the side of the buggy,
badly scaring Mrs. Jones and her
little boy. He thinks the hog had
the hydrophobia or something of
that nature.—Montezuma Record.

Montrealers are foreigners. Mon
treal is the gayest city on this con
tinent, and 1 bave often thought
that tbe clothing there is largely
responsible for tbat condition.
A New Yorker disembarking in
Montreal in midwinter finds the
place inhospitably cold, and won
ders how, as-well as why, auy one
lives there. I wejl remember,
standing years ago beside a tobog
gan slide, with my teeth chatter
ing and my very marrow slowly
congealing, when my attention was
called to the fact that a dozen rud
dy-cheeked, bright-eyed, laughing
girls were grouped in snow that
reached their knees. I asked a
Canadian lady how that could b
possible, and she answered with a
list of the principle garments those
girls were wearing. They had two
pairs of stockings under their
shoes, and a pair of stockings over
their shoes, with moccasins over
them. They had on so many
woolen skirts that au American
girl would not believe me if I gave
the number. They wore heavy
jackets and blanket snits over all
this. They had mitteus over their
gloves, and fur caps over their
knitted hoods. It no longer seem
ed wonderful that they should not
heed the cold; indeed, it occurred
to me that their bravery amid the
terrors of tobogganing was no
bravery at all, since a girl buried
deep in the heart of such a mass
of woolens could scarcely expect
damage if she fell from a steeple.
When next I appeared out-of-doors
I, too, was swathed in flannels,like
a jewel in a box of plush, and from
that time Montreal seemed, which

as something beautiful to look up

But where are they to get the tem

Colonel D. T. Casper, who has
been connected with the signal ser
vice since its foundation, early
the seventies, told’a New York
Star representative some carious
facts about the service.
A carious little clause was tack
ed to the appropriation bill,”, be
gan the Colonel, “while it was be
fore the senate, and went through
the legislative ■ mill innocently
enough and is now a law, It pro
vides that, under the direction of
the Forestry Division - of the de
partment of agriculture, 82,000
shall be expended in tbe artificial
production of rainfall. There are
those who are disposed to make
merry over this provision of the
appropriation bill, bnt really there
is nothing so absurd about it. No
doubt there is plenty of moisture
at all times, if only it conld be
gathered in the right place and be
made to fall upon tbe earth. Man
has accomplished as difficult things
as that in the realms oE applied
science. Then why not that? It
is not contemplated, however, to
produce rainfall by the slow growth
of forests in the arid regions. The
success of that method is still dis
puted. Under the new law it is
proposed to find out whether rain
fall cannot he produced by elec
tricity, dynamite explosions, or oth
er mechanical agencies. Taking
the cue from the fact that heavy
cannonading on a battlefield, or a
Fourth of July celebration is fol
lowed by copious rains, the exper
imenters will work accordingly.
The process of burning powder to
produce rain hes hitherto been too
expensive to warrant its general
use, but possibly cheaper explo
sives will be found. . It jias been
proposed, among other things, to
attach twenty-five pounds of dyna
mite to a toy balloon and then send
a flock of snch balloons into the
air, with lighted fuses attached.

A Wonderful Bridge.
David Gowan, who lives in . the
northern part of Gila county, Ari
zona, in what is known as “the
Tonto Basin,” is the owner of one
of the greatest natnral curiosities
in the United States, if not in the
world. Gowan’s wonder is the fa
mous natural bridge which spans
Pine Creek by a single arch of 200
feet, the walls on either side risin;
to a height of from 700 to 800 feet,
on one side forming a perpendicu
lar precipice. The bridge is 600
feet in‘width; from the bottom
of the arch to the’ top it averages
forty feet; span, as above mention
ed, 200 feet; lower side of arch 150
feet. The action of the water
which has ponred under this nat
nral span for ages has worn it as
smooth as though it bad been
chisled and sandpapered by
stonemason. Although the arch,
which is solid limestone, averages
about forty feet in thickness, there
is one place near tho top of the
arch where the the thickness
scarcely exceeds six feet; near the
centre of this thin place there is a
semi circular hole two feet in di-
amter, through which one may
watch tbe waters swiftly glidio
200 feet below.
Underneath the bringe, as well
as in all the spars of mountains
contingent to Pine Creek, are nu
merous caverns, snggesting the
idea that the creek itself was once
subterranean passage, leaving
the wonderful bridge as a remind-
of what “used to be.” These
caves abound in splendid stalac
tites, stalagmites and petrifactions
ill kinds. One of the stalactites
the cave under tbe bridge is a
remarkable representation of a fe-
male’figure. Visitors have mimed
Lady Gowan,” in honor of the
gentlemanly David, owner of the
bridge and caves.
One of the most romartable old
ladies in Maine is living on the is
land of Monbegau. Although 75
years old, she not only knows noth
ing of the cars, telephone, electric
lights, etc., bnt has never seen a
horse. She has always lived on
the island, several miles from the
mainland, and her world has been

kept on the island, bat there is no
call for horses. She has just

What is it that makes women
more smiling and happy looking
than men? We meet them on tbe
cars, on the streets, in the country,
by tbe seashore, always smiling,
teeth a glistening, eyes a dancing.
Ah! the secret is they aim to please.
It is an effort in many instances
for them to smile, and were it net
for a desire to look pleasing and
pretty many would “never smile
again.” Why? - Because in a
large majority of instances they
don’t feel like smiling. -.They feel
more like crying. With their ner
vous aches, weakness and bearing
down pains, life to them is a bur
den. What a god-find to many a
