New York, Nov. 12. Cornelius L.
Alvord, Jr., tho note tellor of tho First
National bank, who is accused of em
bezzling $000,000 of the bank's funds,
was arraigned before United Sattes
Comniieeionor Shields in tho criminal
branch of tho United States circuit
court bore today. ,
Whiting E. Snow, assistant cashior
of tho First National bank, said ho had
known Alvord 20 years, tho past 10 oi
which ho had been the noto toller of
tho First National bank. Ho explaiued
iu detail tho duties of the noto tellor
nnd tho bank's cloariug house transac
tions. Ho explained the balanco
shoots, which showed n shortago of
$000,000 in Alvord's dopnrtmont. Tho
figures showed that tho shortago var
ied, aud that from Ootober 10 to Octo
ber 13 It was $700,000. Alvord's at
torney led Snow to admit that since
the bitter first boeamu nu officer of tho
bank, two yearn ago, ho had nover
known ofllcers of tho bank to examine,
the assots of tho institution.
Cashier William Hoed, of the First
National bpuk, was the next wituess.

nn examination was October 15. lie
had no personal knowledge of nny ro
port of the examination.

one, ho identified tho sheots made up
for tho banking days In Ootober. Mr.
Mooro tesltfled that two figures In the
sheots inado up lor October 15 had been
changed. Tho figures as they stood
woro not his. He did not know who
had mado tho chongos. It was brought
out that the sheet had beon In tho pos

The Cost of Mnktne Hotter.
Tat creamery conducted on the right
principles is one of tho best friends of
the farmer, and If It cnu be started It
should receive the-Intelligent support
of those who raise tho milk nnd cream
for It. Too often there Is an antagon
ism between tho creamery owners and
the farmers, nnd the latter, to show
that they have the power to close tho
creamery, mny very easily destroy a
profitable ludustry In tho vicinity. It
certainly pays farmers better to raise
their milk and cream for the creamery
than for most of the city markets. In
tbeAO latter places the price for milk Is
DEVICE FOn TYINO CORJf FODDEIU
often bo ridiculously small that dairy
ing does not pay. The remedy often Is
for more farmers to encourage the erec
tion of creameries. In parts of tho
West and East where creameries have
been established farmers get more re
turns from their farms, nnd aro better
contented", than In dairying regions
where the milk Is all shipped to cities.
The cost of making a pound of butter
has been steadily decreased by means
of the Improved 'creamery, and It Is pos
sible for creameries to make and sell
butter at a profit when farmers cannot.
Country butter does not sell well In tho
large markets. Creamery seems to have
a charmed nnmo for consumers, and
they demand thla every time. Country
butter to-day Is a drug In many mar
ketsas low as 8 and 10 cents per
pound. The farmer making his butter
cannot make a living nt any such prices.
The day of the country butter has gone,
and the farmers of any dairying region
sboujd recognize this nnd not wasto
their time In making It. The milk
should either be raised for a creamery,
or the farmers should Join together and
run their own creamery. As a rule, the
man who will put up the creamery and
run It himself will do better than an
association of farmers where too many
heads are apt to cause disputes and
bickerings. Milk sent to the creamery
pays all the way from 12 to 22 cents a
pound, and at this price tlio farmer Is
making far more than by making bis
own butter. This comparatively high
price Is made possible because of the
better prices received for creamery, and
for the low cost of manufacturing It.
This latter varies because the size of
the creameries vary. The larger the
creamery the cheaper the butter can be
made, nnd this varies all the way from
1 cent a pound to 7 cents. The two
extremes, however, are exceptions, and
soihewhere between them the actual
cost could be placed, say from 3 to 5
cents. S. W. Chambers, In American
Profit from Cowb.
It Is estimated that the cost of a cow
for one year for food alone Is about
$25, says the Farmers' Journal. This
amount she must return .to her owner
before she can make nny profit, nnd
yet there will remain the cost of the
labor and shelter, for which she will
pay with the manure, as It possesses
value, as well as the milk. If the
farmer cannot get enough from the cow
to pay for the food she eats be will
.keep her at a loss. At $25 per year
the cost 1b about 7 cents per day. The
price of the milk In market will deter
mine the value of the cow. If she pro
duces 2,500 quarts of milk In a year,
the cost of each quart will be reduced.
All cows cannot be kept for one year
at so low a cost, but as there must bo
an expense for the cow whether she
proves valuable or not, the dairyman
should seek the best. In order to reduce

factory, lie now slakes lime In the or
dinary manner and strains It, Then
for npplo and plum trees be adds to a
gallon of this two gallons of water and
two teaspoonfuls of London purple, and
sprays the trees before the bloom comes
out, and again after the bloom Is gone.
Gives a third and fourth application If
necessary, which Is not often the case.
Never spray while the bloom Is on, ns It
drowns, poisons or kills the pollen.

Location of Poultry Houses.
John M. Wise, In American Poultry
Journal, says, if possible, locate poul
try houses on lilgn, dry ground. Select
nn elevated site, protected by trees on

will destroy them by scratching about
the roots, place stone about the trees,
or make a board frame, which can be
cheaply and easily mado from any old
lumber. This will also act as n mulch
and keep tho ground cool and moist
Trees and fowls are good friends and
