WAGE LONG WAR ON SAVAGES
Holland Never Able to Subdue Fierce
Tribe Living in Rich East Indian
The military forces of Holland,
which the news dispatches say are to
be reduced Dearly one-half, find con
siderable employment In the East
Indian archipelago, nearly all of which
belongs to the Dutch, it is con
siderable territory, covering, a distance
from cast to .. esi as great as that
from New York to San b'runoisco.
The wild native tribes are trouble
some. J Jut WOrst of all are the Achee
nese, who occupy a little country at
the north end of Sumatra Acheen Is
an absolute monarchy, recognising no
authority or control from the Dutch
or anybody else.
One of 1 lie Ion-rest wars lu history
has been fought by the Dutch against
the Achi cnese. It was started In 1872,
and has been going on ever since, with
no present prospect of bringing It to
In former days the Acheenese, who
are Malays, engaged largely In piracy.
In their swift salting proas they
scoured the sens, capturing every ua
ti rm.'d vessel they came across, and
customarily butchering everybody on
board. By their depredation thdy al
most destroyed trade through the
straiis of Malacca.
The Dutch did away with this mis
chief by running down the pirate
crafl with small Steam vessels and
destroying them. But the Acheenese
are sun Independent and defiant on
land. When ihe Dutch avenge an out
rage by burning their villages and rice
plantations, they retire to Inaccessible
in-iin -sis of ihe mountains. The best
the Dutch can do Is to hold the ex
treme northern tip of Sumatra, where
they have planted a Fortified town
culled Rots Radja, Usually about
eiu'lit thousand troops are kept there
In garris, hi.
Across ihe have of the tip a string
of fourteen little forts extend con
nected with the town by railroad and
telegraph, Bach is defended by elabo
rate barbed-wire entanglements and
by a hedge of the spiky plants called
Spanish bayonets, thirty feet wide,
which is even more effective, if a
tort is attached re-enforcements from
Kota Radja are summoned by wire.
Not far from the town Is Gold
mountain, Which Is said to be full of
the yellow metal ; but it Is outside the
line of forts and so the gold remains
UlldUg. For the Acheenese are Just
about the most ferocious savages In
the world, a little fad of theirs being
mutilation of their enemies, whose
legs, arms ami ears they cut off.
Their country Is a primeval forest,
peopled by orang-outangs and full of
a deadly malaria.
CLEAN MILK DURING WINTER
Much Can Be Done to Exclude Stable
Filth and Dust by Using Plenty
Many dairymen consider that It Is
not necessary to take the same pre
cautions In milking and bundling milk
during freezing weather as when it Is
It should be kept In mind that milk
Is a food a very wholesome food

Men who have made a careful study
of tuberculosis in dairies State that,"
on ihe average of at least one In eight
of our dairy cows harbors ihe germs
of tuberculosis and that these organ
isms find their way inio the manger
and gutter. Dust from the feed or
from the manure, or small particles of
the latter may convey ihese danger
ous bacteria iu the milk.
Much may he done to lessen this
danger by using plenty of bedding,
feeding moistened feeds and a thor

of the cow witli a damp cloth, A

Stable dust can be settled by
sprinkling the stable floor a short
lime before the cows are milked.
Bacteria stick to wet surfaces, but
as they are free to tloat In the air
again as soon as the surfaces have

moist until after the period of milk
