TANK HEATERS ARE FAVORED
Whan Milk Cows Are Watered Infra
quently It Is Poor Policy to
Supply Ice Water.
When a cow drinks water, her body
at once sets to work raising It, If
necessary, to the same temperature as
exists normally In the body. In order
to warm the water taken In, heat Is
just as necessary as it Is to warm a
kettle of water on the stove.
To provide the heat necessary, the
blood and Internal organs give up a
portion of their supply until more Is
supplied from food "previously con
sumed. As the milk cow is a heavy
consumer of water, much heat Is re
quired to warm it. Consequently when
cows are allowed "to drink water that
Is very cold, a high percentage of the
feed eaten Is required to heat It. If
It 1 true that some heat 18 being
given off from the body all the time
and when the amount of water taken
in at one time Is small the loss is un
important. But when the cows are
watered only once or twice dally, and
then get near ice water, they are like
ly to suffer Injury and more feed Is
necessary. Stated briefly, it Is a ques
tion of balancing good feed and the
cow's time digesting it, against the
cost of a good tank heater and a few
palls of cobs or coal. The man Inter
ested in getting the most out of his
cows and In their comfort will not

Popcorn and Pink

"Well," said Uncle Jack at the
breakfast table, as be unfolded bis
uapkln with one flick, "1 suppose next
week I have to make a sacrifice of
myself, neglect my business, aud waste
the whole of a rare June afternoon.
How about it, Billy?"
Ills young nephew, at the sound of
bis name, lifted . uncomprehending
eyes from his matutinal egg-toast-cocoa
combination. "What you say, Uncle
Jack?" be asked.
"Ob, nothing. Nothing at all. At
least, nothing of Importance. I mere
ly remarked" here this exasperating
young man paused, then added Im
pressively "that the circus, the really,
truly circus, stupendous, uupara
"Circus, Uncle Jack? Circus? Ob,
gosh, Uncle Jack, going to take me?"
Now the reader must be Immediate
ly disabused regarding Uncle Jack's
apparent reluctance to go to the cir
cus. Uncle Jack would rather go to
the circus than do almost anything
else, unless It were to spend the equiv
alent hours In the company of Miss
Caroline Prescott an alternative,
however, which was out of the ques
tion. For only yesterday Jack with con
siderable vehemence for him, bad told
that tantalizing young woman that he
was beastly sick of being fifth vice
president In the firm of devoted Fetch
& Carriers l'or her ladyship and was
ready to sell out all shares at once to
the latest comer. Caroline had re
turned a retort discourteous, and, an
other one of the vice presidents arriv
ing Inopportunely, Jack had taken tui
Now the question reasonably arises
as to Just why Jack should have ex
pected any special consideration. He
did so on the grounds of having
squired Caroline ever since he bad
first held her miniature umbrella over
ber bead on the way to kindergarten
and of having asked her to marry him
semi-annually ever since she was sev
enteen and he nineteen some five or
six years ago. But with each passing
year she had added new charms and
piquancies which attracted new admir
ers until It looked as if her old-time
companion would be crowded out of
So much for the preliminaries which
helped to bring about Billy's circus
trip. Sailor-suited and exuberant, he
trotted along by his uncle's side and
explored the dusty environs of the
grounds, poked peanuts at the trunk
waving elephants, gazed - rapturously
at South American anteaters and Aus
tralian marsupials suddenly and un
scientifically become neighbors, and
finally in the awed silence of expec
tancy, entered the big tent and headed
for grandstand seats.
"Walt, uncle. There's Jean. Walt,
Uncle Jack I"
"Now BUI, if we expect to get our
seats before someone else does never
sat In my own seat at a circus yet,
For Billy was tugging backward at
his uncle's hand. "Walt for Jean.
She's hurrying like everything. Her
Aunt Caroline " .
At the name, Jack halted abruptly,
and somewhere In the back of his
mind an association of Ideas began to
form. Jean Caroline's niece 1 Yes,
there they were, sure enough, although
from Caroline's unconcern he felt sure
she had not seen him. Fresh and cool
In green linen and wide hat. Lord I
how attractive she was and what a
darn shame he couldn't follow his im
pulse to rush wildly over. . Yet dignity
demanded that he stick by his guns.
Through the performance which fol
lowed, Jack was quite as conscious
that Caroline was sitting directly In
back of him, three rows up, as if he
had had eyes In the back of his bead,
or as If Billy hadn't told him. He
held himself stiffly and refused to re
lax even at the utmost efforts of sear
human monkeys or bouncing clowns.
Why had Caroline come to the circus
without bringing along at least one of
The afternoon seemed as long to
Jack as It was brief for Billy, but the
moment finally arrived when the last
chariot race had been won, the span
gled beauty bad defied death and the
laws of gravity for the last time, and
the greatest show on earth, In a blare
of trumpets, was over until evening.
Jack rose, determined not to glance
around, yet somehow or other in the
slowly-moving crowd Jamming- the
aisles he managed to keep always In
sight a bit of green linen. Half-way
to the entrance one of those Inexpli
cable occurrences took place which
arise from very small beginnings. A
muffled explosion from an automobile
outside, the roar of a hungry Hon In
Its cage something alarmed the mob
at one of the exits. Immediately the
spirit of panic permeated the atmos
phere. People who bad been patient
ly waiting space to move, pressed for
ward. Common sense Indicated that
in a moment the place couldn't help
but empty Itself. Yet In that moment
how much could happen I
Somehow, Jack got Billy on bis
shoulder, elbowed a bit shead, and
slipped his arm about a figure In green
linen. "Keep tight bold of the young
ster," he urged, and managed to draw
the two of them out on to a row of
"There! That's better!" he said.
"Although the trouble's over, I Im
agine." Then be began to feel em
barrassed and avoided looking directly
at Caroline, whose own cheeks were

tension. "I guess," be began Impor

told you my Uncle Jack was going to

"Caroline I Did you did you
"It was a satisfactory circus," said
Caroline. "Wasn't It?"
"Oh, Caroline," said Jack humbly,
so low that the children couldn't hear,
even If they bad not been comparing
notes, "I'm sorry for all I said that
afternoon. Take me back and I'll
I'll be office boy!"
But Caroline, who still retained a
thrilling memory of the feel of Jack's
arm about her waist, shook her head
gently. "Let's go Into partnership,"
she murmured, "and freeze out the

THE RIGHT THING
By MARY MARSHALL DUFFEE
It Is a bad plan that admits of no modi
fications. Fublius Syrus.
TT HAS been said that decorative
flowers are; even more Important In
the arrangement of the dinner table
than the knives and forks; and true
it Is that the wise hostess takes as
much thought in arranging her center
piece as In seeing that the silver Is
freshly polished and properly ar
ranged. A fat pocketbook is not the only
tiling needed to make a tusfeful ilurul
arrangement on the dinner table. In
fact, one need have very little money
to spend in order to make an attrac
tive and tasteful arrangement. An
over-elaborate arrangement is no
longer In good taste. Towering floral
structures that really look like noth
ing so much as the "set pieces" that
the florists prepare for far less Joyous
occasions are really quite bad, and
the careful hostess does not leave the
matter to the florist, but makes sure
that something very simple In ar
rangement is selected. Except for a
children's party or a dinner that is
to be given In a spirit of extreme in
formality, paper decorations are not
In good taste either. A cluster of
roses or any other hothouse or garden
flowers attractively arranged In a
glass or silver vase Is a charming se
lection. The addition of ferns or snil
lax adds to the effectiveness. The
vase may be placed either on a bit
of embroidered or luce-trlnmied linen
or on a mirror that reflects the flowers
and candles so as to add to the gen
eral effectiveness of the arrangement.
A short time ago some of the shops
offered for sale rather splendid-looking
centerpiece devices that combined a
vase placed at the center of a silver
standard and little bonbon or salted
nut baskets that were hung up on the
sliver brackets that cume out from the
standard on all sides. This was rather
a clever arrangement, but It was not
In the best taste, for nowadays we
do not use food as part of the center
decoration, as was the case when won
derful centerpieces wera made of spun
sugar and pastry. The only exception
to tills rule Is In fuvor of choice fruits
occasionally combined with the flowers.
