and could handle bhsebnll bat or cue

He had mentally decided that the

pot his rejjy from headquarters he de

to drive over and catch the express from
Barnstaple to Chicago if required there.
It waa simply glorious to glide along
at racing speed over miles of smooth
black ice, but rather annoying to Dar

a man who kept steadily on some 40

suddenly sweeping a quarter of a mile

as for the fourth time the stranger

him behind, but at last, apparently
contented with the exhibition he had
given of his prowess, the man curved
round and came bearing down upon

farmer, living a few miles west of Nor

A couple of hours lata Darrent waa

looking for the Gaiety theater, which,
after a lengthy search, he discovered in
a not very lively quarter of the town

The book treats dairying as a man
utitcturing busintws and discus its
problems from die standpoint that
everw dairy farmer is just ss much
a business man as tho he engaged In
any other manufacturing or commer
cial undertaking. It in-complied in
terse, practical manner, is easily
readable, and can hardly fail to be
interesting and ins'ruetive lo every
one in uny way concerned in dairying.
It is splendidly printed, handsomely
illustrated, and altogether pleasing.
The front cover shows a lithographed
milking scene, aud the buck cover a
cut of the Jersey cow, Ida Marigold,
which received first prize at the
The book begins with a brief re
view of the history of dairying,
shows the relative ercentages of the
various component parts ol the differ
ent dairying products, ' takes up the
production and marketing of such
products in one form after another,
and closes with a pertinent reference
to private dairying.
In an historieaL.wnd statistical way
it tells much that is interesting. We
learn that dairying is of the most
ancient beginning, going back at
least 2000 years before Christ, but
that In a commercial way it is most
modern, being scarcely more than
the development of the last genera
tion. We learn that in 1898 the
dairy products of the United States
weo $o()0,000,000; that there are
some 17,000,000 milch cows in the
U. 8. j an annual consumption of
1,750,000,000 gallons of milk; 1,500,-
000,000 pounds of butter and 300,000,
000 pounds of cheese; and that 1899
prices of all dairying products, espe
dally butter, have been considerably
higher than for several years past.
We find that the average U. S.
yield of milk per cow is less than
4,00 pounds a year and ouly about
130 nounds of butter, while to be
profitable the milk yield should be
from 6,000 to 6,fMo pounds and the
butler .production never under 200
pounds In this connection it is
authoritatively slated that fully one-
half of the butter produced in farm
butter making, by the practice of the
older dairying rnethods, Is made and
markettal at an actual loss to the
Tha hcok fairly teems with prac
tical facta and eplgrammatjcal ex
pressions appealing to the dairy
farmer as fo instance :
"It should not be assumed that
dairying is being overdone an j soon
likely to becoinb unprofitable. The
contrary is the case. The hon.c con
sumption of dairy products, particu
larly vith greater Indastrial pros,
perity, is largely increasing from
year to yesa. The Euroean mar
kets for these American products
are onlv now being fairly oiened up.
The export, which are as ytt small,
wall within a few years amount to
one third of the iotal production, not
only affording a sufficient market,
but insuring the maintenance of
"Farm daitying cntnmui ities are
every-where among the most pros

"Modern dairy farming is ust as
much a business as auy other com
mercial or manufacturing undertak
ing. It affords the same opportune
ties. In a practical tense it is a man
ufacturiug business. The land, the
feed, and the degree of care.used are
the dairy farmer's raw materials.
The cow, trie cream separator, churn,
butfer worker, cans, coolers, and
other utensils are his tools and ma
cWffiety.ai'ewJe of the milk, cream
or butter Is the marketing of his pro
duct. The prosperity of his business
is largely of his own mak ing, just as
is that of any other."
"Too tremend 'us advance In dairy
ing practice within the past fifteen
years has so revolutionized dairying
methods about every five years dur
ing such period,that it is necessary,
in order to be profitable, that dairy
ing keep apsce with advanced condi
tions. Dami'itr upon the lines of
fifteen years sgo is iiw a lolng oc
it) pat ion. Dairying uior. l-aslsj
of five and ten years igo now does
well to mske t nds meet. Prnfiji hie
dairying of toils? must beSp-to-oate
and be kept hi."
"The selection oiJ.he. practical
dairy cow of todrfy is hot so much a
question of particular breed as of In
dividual productiveness. This will
be found to vary In every herd of
every breed, in breeding it is an es
tablished maxim that 'The bull is
half the herd.' The hull should al
ways be pure-bred and selected from
family from which the cows are
of established dairy excellence."
"Cheese-making" in the United
States has not lield Its owq Id dairy
ing advancement, as'ompured with
other ways of inarketufglalry pro
ducts. It is questionable If chei-so
factory patronage has been a iicacti-
eal form of dairying in other tloVq
but very few localities for several
years. In nearly all sections it has
been relatively profitable but for a
short season at most. It la seldom
practical unless there is some other
means available ol utilizing the milk
profitably during the seasons when
such is not the case in its cheese-fac
"The success of the creamery bus!
ness, like that of any other, depends
on good management. The creamery
patron must understand that this
concerns him, since he is not going
to teceive more for his milk than
the creamery management trtskes
out of It in Its conversion into but
ter and marketing."
"It is undoubtedly a fact that any
one practicing dairying today, on
however big or little scale, by Nie
employment of one of the older
gravity methods of cream raising
without the help of Ice or cold water
Is doing so at so great a loss in skim
ming at all times, and in quality of
product a good part of the time, that
profit is simply impossible. Still,
thousands are blindly pursuing such
"Hardly any point is of greater
importance in successful dairy butter
making than marketiug the product
in business-like manner. This na
turally begins with tha packing of
it. Appearance counts for a great
deal In marketing butter as in every
One of the most Interesting chap
ters is that devoted to skim-milk, of
which the use of the centrifugal
cream separator has made a new by
product In dairying, with a much
wider field of usefulness tnan was
either thought ol or possible in the
practice of gravity setting. We find
many ways in which skim milk is
being used profitably,' and that for
some purposes It is as nutritive and
useful as the whole-milk Used. This
is mainly due t j lis freshness and
sweetness in centrifugal separation,
since in gravity setting the bacterial
growth in eklm-mllk develops rapid
ly and the milk sugar, which is an
extremely nutritious Ingredient In
its natural state, changes into an acid
which Is harmful rather than benefi
cial to both the animal and human
While the purpose of its distribu
tion is no doubt an advertising one,
in a considerable degree, there is
much that is commendable in the
little book, and we think it bears out
the introductory statement that it is
dedicated to every owner of a cow in
the hope that it may afford some

'.NATION DEFENDS THE FLAW."
At one of the way stations in
Minnesota last week, President Me

'My fellow-citizens: The people
of this country, differing from many
countries In the world, are masterful
in administration and execution.
They change policies and admin

settled in the consciences of the peo

sating that the safest tribunal of the
earth was the people, and at one of
the most critical periods of our civil
war he uttered these great words:

Mr. Peyton, who went to the
Philippines for the Episcopal board
of domestic and foreign missions, re
turns to the United States with the
report that the Tsgals are the most
moraf and religious people that he
ever saw aud that the United States
has in and around Manila, at the
time of his visit, an army of 45,000
drunkards, rakes and gamblers. Mr.
Peyton refers to the volunteers who
have returned to their homes; to the
young men who a few months ago
left good homes to enlist in the ser
vice, to all the gallant young fellows
who have within a few weeks been
received with enthusiasm by the
American people. It is an easy
thing to speak of 45,000 men in terms
of general reproach, but it is sn in
famous thing, ami the tsiard of mis
sions of the gr at protectant denomi
nation which he represents will do
less than its duty it it dH-s not re
