The beauties of Mount Vernon, and a
short account of its interesting history
are written about in an exceptionally
delightful way in the above-named book
of about fifty pages. The author shows
himself to l>e thoroughly acquainted
with the subject, and in an easy manner
takes one from Washington to Mount
Vernon, there to depict in detail the
well-marked points of the greatest object
of interest. Although the book is writ
ten from a litterary standpoint, as is
evidenced by a concise and graceful
style, it would well act as a guide for
the pilgrim visiting Mount Vernon for
the first time, and especially so for the
visitor who has a deep regard for the
traditions which clothe the nation’s
Each visitor will be the better and
wiser for the reading of this volume and

pressed witli great feelings of reveience
for the founder of this republic. The
volume is not only valuable for its edu
cational matter, and as a thoroughly
good guide, but also as an example of
line book making. The execution is
perfect ;the printers’ art was never better
shown, and the illnstiations are such as
to command the admiration of ail. It
contains exceptionally well executed
half tones of the Mount Vernon Home,
the Potomac, the grounds, as also of

The story of Washington never can
be told too often. His spirit should ever
permeate the people of the land. The
great work he did, stands as an example
for all time, and his devotion to his
country, his self-sacrificing, his long en
during toil, and above all his exalted
patriotism, will ever make him the ex
emplar of the nation. He is truthfully
portrayed by the author of this little
book. It is a book all should read.

A junk dealer in an Indiana town
had been persistently suspected of act
ing as a “ fence” for stolen goods and
finally was arrested on a charge of
that kind. However, after a jury trial
he was acquitted on a technicality.
Commenting soon afterward with a
friend on his acquittal, the Junk dealer
said, "A long experience in the Junk

Apart from milk production the
Brown Swiss excel most other
breeds In beauty and disposition.
Upon the sides o f Swiss mountains
the cattle graze, where they acquire
a strong and rugged constitution.
Because o f their stamina and their
not being o f a nervous disposition
they more easily withstand the in
roads of cattle disease, which is
very prevalent In most breed3 to
day. The cow shown is a Brown
Swiss o f pure breeding and high
hind leg set back, then the hands of
the milker will be all that comes in
contact with the cow during the proc
ess of milking. The milk pail should
be held between the knees of the milk
er and not more than six inches below
The milk should be drawn by pres
sure of the full hands encircling the
teat. Milking with the full hand is
often impossible with heifers, and
then stripping must be resorted to.
The udder should not be swayed or be
pulled downward, but should be held
I f tile arms or
wrists of the milker get tired while
milking, then resting his elbows ou his
thighs may be helpful. The practice
of holding the hand on the teat close
against the udder tends to develop a
teat of uniform thickness throughout.
Stripping tends to taper the teat, and
sometimes u sort o f cushion forms
where the teat is attached to the ud
der, for the lower part of the teat is
drawn out in stripping.
Whenever possible, milk from the
fore quarters should be drawn first
Cows that yield most of the milk from
the fore quarters are rare. As usual
ly the cow lets down her milk more
readily in the rear quarters and yields
more milk from these, the tendency
often Is that the milker draws this
milk first. I f this is done the cow
may yield even more milk from the
rear quarters and develop a funnel
shaped udder. Drawing milk from a
fore quarter on one side and from a
rear quarter on the other side is prac
ticed by some milkers. This may be
all right if the quarters are begun al
All the milk that is let down into
the teat should be druwu out with
each pressure of the hand. I f this is
not done it may develop a hard milk

without huTting the cow. I f It hurts

Experience lias taught me that the
cow’s udder can be milked dry with
the full hand and that stripping is
unnecessary. A few gentle pressures
upward against the milk cistern usual

Facts Being Collected by the
Department of Agriculture.
GOST OF OUR HIGHWAYS.
Rssuits of tho Canvass Will Servo as a
Values of the Different Kinds of
H igh w ays Throughout the Country.
Tho United States department of ag
riculture is now gathering information
which, when complete, should not only
give the total mileage of public roads
in the United States and their cost,
but should serve as a basis for esti
mating the relative value of the differ
ent kinds of highways. Some 15,000
sets of Inquiry blanks huve alreadj’
been distributed through the state
highway commissions, and some of
these are now beginning to come back
to the department Each set consists
of four cards.
Of these the first asks for Informa
tion on the mileage of different classes
of roads in the county to which it is
sent. The mileage does not include,
of course, streets in cities and towns.
The roads are divided into ten classes
as follows: Brick paved, concrete,
macadam, with the addition of some
substance such as asphalt, oil or tar;
plain macadam, gravel, shell, other
| hard surfaced roads, sand and clay
mixture properly graded and drained,
ordinary earth roads properly con
structed and, finally, unimproved roads.
The second card asks for information
in regard to the tax rate for the roads
and the amount of work and money ex
pended on them.
The third blank is concerned with
the names of local road oliieiuls and
the fourth with facts in regard to the
bond issues and the indebtedness of
tho counties for their road systems.
As there are approximately 3.000
counties in the United States, in many
of which the mileage has never even
been estimated, it is hardly probable
that this preliminary survey will be
exact. The department, however, will
be able to detect any excessively inac
curate report, for the road mileage per
square mile of territory does not vary
excessively. Except in desert or un
developed country less than half a
mile of public road to every square
mile of territory is rare, while in tho
most thickly populated rural sections
the maximum is no more than two and
one-half or three miles.
France there is an average for the en
tire country o f 1.76 to a square mile.
In Italy, however, this has fallen to
0.86, possibly on account of the moun
tainous character of much of the pen
insula and of Sicily and Sardinia.
In America the average is approxi
mately 0.80 mile, which in view of the
fact that much of the country is sparse
ly settled seems unduly high. An ex
planation, however, Is to be found iu
the fact that in many states the law
provides that each section line shall be
•i public road. Thus, for example, there
are In the state of Iowa alone more
than 104,000 miles of legal highways,
manifestly a much larger mileage than
is required by traffic.
When the information in regard to
the existing roads which the depart
ment is now seeking is complete it is
the intention to continue the inquiry
year after year In order to ascertain
the desirability and economy o f the
various highwuys. The duta thus col
lected should be useful to road engi
neers all over the country, and it is
hoped that county agents and others
Interested in improvement of agricul
ture will do their best to facilitate the
collection of the desired information.

“ Forgive me,” said Ellen, throwing
her arms about him. “ I knew you
weren’t afraid to go to the war. J
thought you needed a little prodding.”
“ I ’m goin’ to war to please you. I
don’t believe in wars. The fellers that

She kissed him and patted him to
make him feel better about the sacri

to the nearest recruiting station aud
