Portland, Or. The National Nur

the greatest drawing cards for the first
three days of the celebration. The

SOME QUEER TABLE MANNERS
In Ancient Times People Were Tcld
Not to Pick Their Teeth With
Knife or Fork.
"Until the middle of the seventeenth
century," writes Rose M. Bradley in
the English Housewife, "forks were a
luxury, treated rather as toys, elegant
with Jeweled handles, wherewith the
ladies might pick daintily at their
sweetmeats." Before the carving fork
was introduced paper covers, were
placed over those portions of the meat
which had to be grasped with the left
band. The paper frills sometimes
seen nowadays on cutlet bones are
said by the author to be a survival of
the old custom. After smarting under
foreign criticism on their table man
ners, Englishmen turned to French
"Rules of Civility," and. others were
compiled in English.
Readers were warned "not to wipe
knife or fork on bread or the cloth,
but on napkins." They were also re
quested "not to pick their teeth at
table with knife or fork." "Lady

full of meat nor "smack like a pig."
not eat spoon meat so hot that the

uncomely," the author adds, "to drink
so large a draft that your breath Is
almost gone and you are forced to re
cover yourself. Throwing down your
liquor as Into a funnel is an action
fitter for a Juggler than a gentlewoman."

COST OF BUILDING CREAMERY
One Must First Figure on Expense and
Then on Equipment Pays
to Build Well. '
(By Q. A. GILBERT, Colorado Agrioul-
. .. tural College.) .
Creamery builders must figure the
cost, first, of the building, second, of
the equipment. A suitable and con
venient building will. contain a main
work room, store room, refrigerator,
engine and boiler room, coal room and
an office. Such a medium sized cream
ery would measure 28x48 feet In
some sections labor and material are
much cheaper than In others and the
cost varies accordingly. However, we
can place the limit of cost of suoh a
construction between one thousand
and fifteen hundred dollars.
Where only gathered cream is re
ceived the equipment required is less
than where whole milk Is received. In
the first Instance, of the gathered
cream plant, the following would be
necessary: 15 H. P. boiler; 10 H. P.
engine; a well and pump; weigh can
and scales; Babcock testing equip
ment complete; combiner churn, capa
city 600 lbs. butter; buttermilk vat;
cream rlpener; starter can; wash sink.
Besides this there will be shafting,
pulleys, piping, belting, etc. By mak
ing two churnings a day in the rush
season, 1,200 pounds of butter could be
manufactured per day In a plant of
this size. The cost of 'equipment would
approximately be 91,200.
The total cost of a creamery with
out artificial refrigeration will vary
from 2,200 to $3,000. In the long run
it pays to build well and to use first
olass equipment in a creamery, and
this is the basis of the foregoing fig
ares. In many cases on record cream
eries started by promoters of repre
sentatives of construction companies
have cost exborbltant prices and out
of all proportion to the business they
are able to do.

GOOSE LAYING SEASON HERE
Advisable to Start Upon Small Scale
and Run Two Geese With Each -Gander
Get Early Eggs.
One of the best seasons for pur
chasing geese is during the latter part
of the year, for then the birds have
a chance to settle down properly be
fore the laying season, which In the
case of geese begins at the end of
January. It Is advisable to start
upon a small scale and to run two
geese to each gander. They should
be housed in roomy, dry floored quar
ters that are well ventilated without
being draughty. Use dry straw as lit
ter and renew frequently.
When the birds are of the right
type the young usually take after
them In this respect, but to assure
size it is necessary that early eggs
be produced, for unless the young are
hatched early they have no time to
develop before the cold days are en
countered. The way to produce early
eggs is to see that the birds are well
fed difrlng the autumn, a time when
much of the natural food picked up
is apt to be short of nutriment.
' When Soils Cease to Produce.
The trouble with soils when they
cease to produce as they did when
new is not that the elements of plant
food are actually exhausted from the
soli, but the necessaary forces for the
liberation are exhausted. One of
these forces 1b bacteria. It is esti
mated that in the common soil there
are 150,000,000 bacteria to the ounce.
These bacteria must have for their
food, humus, then they will liberate
food for the growth of plants. To be
a good farmer one needs to grow le
gumes and other cover crop, plants
to turn under for humus, and to en
courage these beneficial bacteria to
perform their functions in the soil.
Fertilizing Apple Arees.
A Maine farmer orchardlst had sev
eral apple trees along the stone wall.
The trees were not considered bf
much value until the owner plowed
the field for a crop, fertilising It
heavily and giving it liberal cultiva
tion. The trees got their share of the
benefit and produced apples least year
worth $285. Another old neglected
Baldwin tree was plowed and ferti
lized, and It resopnded with a crop of
apples that Bold for more than all the
corn raised on the acre of ground
where the trees stood.
Bran As a Food.
Bran Is one of the best foods the
laying stock can have. Being rich In
protein It helps the hens to digest the
other foods. It Is also one of the
best preventatives against diarrhea.
Always keep a hopper full hanging in
the house or run, so that the birds
can help themselves as required. Bran
is equally good for the young stock,
as it is one of the best bone-forming
materials obtainable. It is wonder
ful how quick the chicks take to it

ONE PRACTICE IS WASTEFUL
By Burning Corn Stalks Farmer Is De
stroying His Land Muoh Benefit
In Plowing Under.
(By B. B. Lara.)
It always makes me feel sad to see
the smoke rising from the burning
corn stalks in the field, because the
farmer Is burning up his land and
doesn't know it How can we expect
to burn up stock which the soli pro
duces and put nothing back In the
way of humus and then hope to keep
our soil in good condition? Maybe
I'm wrong when I say that farmers do
not know what they're doing, for
doubtless some of them do know that
it Is a bad practice, but burning stalks
is easier than discing or cutting them
up and they are a nuisance to plow
under. Some farmers say there is no
benefit in plowing under stalks, but I
cannot figure it out that way because
I do not see how we can go on rob
bing our soli and keep up the fertility.
