Twenty or Twenty-Five Boys and Girls
May Participate In Pastime While
This game may be played at recess
with as many as twenty or twenty-five
girls and boys taking part In it. All
of the players except three clasp hands
and form a circle., Jnside the ring
is the orchard where the .fox, one of
the players, takes his place. The
farmer, another one of the extra play
ers, stands on the outside of the ring
and calls to another -'player, who is
outside the ring, saying: "Bruno, a
fox is in the orchard." ' Then the fox
runs from the circle beneath the play
ers' uplifted hands. Bruno chases him,
first entering the circle and then fol
lowing Just where the fox runs.
All through the game the dog,
Bruno, must imitate everything that
the fox does just as players in "follow
their leader" imitate their leader. If
the ox Jumps up to touch the branch
of a tree Bruno must imitate. Some
times the fox does many stunts which
amuse the ring players very much and
which make it hard for the dog. If the
dog does not follow he cannot go on
with his part of the game, but must
join the ring. Then the fox becomes
dog and a new fox Is chosen. When
the dog captures the fox he becomes
the fox for the new game and the fox
goes into the ring. . Then a new dog
is chosen. When the ring is vary
large there may be two foxes within
the circle and two dogs to chase them.

y The Word "Yankee."
The origin of the word "Yankee"
has been variously explained. Some
authorities think it is a corruption of
the word English, as it was pro
nounced by the American Indians who
called the .white people "Yenghles."
It seems first to have been applied to
the British soldiers about 1776, as a
term of reproach to the New England
ers who afterwards adopted it them
Others hold that Yankee is a cor
ruption of Jankln, or John, a nick
name given to the English colonists
of Connecticut by the Dutch settlers
of New York. The song "Yankee
Doodle," was originally "Nankee
Doodle," and was applied to Oliver

Some Direction Here by Which the
Good Cook May Easily Cut Down ,
the Cost of Living Without
Meat may be rather tough and of
coarse fiber and yet contain more
actual food value than cuts that are
more tender and much higher In price.
But on account of the tougher fiber,
ignorance or carelessness on the part
of the cook and the deplorable habit
of swallowing food much after the
manner of the reptiles we find- these
parts of the animal more difficult .to
digest and therefore condemn them.
The good cook, however, will give the
preference to the so-called cheaper
cuts and parts of meats, as she knows
that with them she can develop a
variety of flavors that will charm the
taste at each separate meal even

KIND OF COWS TO BUY
Animals Not Adapted to Dairying
To Obtain Best Results It Is Essential
That Strict Dairy Type Be Kept -Beef
Value of Secondary
(By E. A. MARKHAM, Idaho Experi
ment Station.) :
It is not difficult to find men, even
in the most prosperous dairy , com
munities, who do not believe that
dairying pays. They have tried It and
failed. Some have purchased good
stock, but poor management or false
economy in housing or feeding pre
vented them from getting the results
they expected, but by far the largest
number of these failures are due to
the use of animals that are not
adapted to dairying. :,

tain the best results It ' is essential
that ' the animals purchased for the
dairy should be of the' strict dairy
type, and be made a permanent part
of the farm live stock. Those, who
purchase cows with the intention of
milking them but a short. time and
then selling them off when the price
of butter-fat drops or when the ani
mal goes dry naturally look more for
beef producers rather than milk pro
ducers. It Is impossible to build up
a good dairy herd by this method.
Dual-purpose animals may be used
in some localities to good advantage,
but to get the best results one of the
special dairy breeds should be used.
This does not mean that only thor
oughbred animals should be UBed, but
animals that are bred for milk pro
duction. A good dairy cow should
produce enough butter-fat in her best
days that the value of the beef may
be of secondary importance, If not

PLACE FOR HENS TO SCRATCH
Lesves Make Excellent Material If
Gathered When Perfectly Dry
Oat Straw Is Cheap.
There are a number of different ma
terials which furnish an excellent
place for the hens to scratch in, says
a writer in the Poultry Journal.
Leaves are probably the stuff most
used by the small poultrymen. These
are good If gathered when perfectly
dry. They must be put into the' pens
every few days, because the poultry
will break them into dust by their
continual scratching. I find oat straw
about as cheap in the long run, be
cause It lasts quite a while and furn
ishes some feed If fed before thresh
ing. Some of my neighbors have tried
feeding buckwheat as a scratching
material and a feed combined. Buck
wheat is too fattening and should be
used only occasionally. Corn husks
make an excellent scratching material
Shredded or cut corn fodder does very
well If there Is nothing else on hand.
I do not like any form of meadow
grass or swale for scratching ma
terial because it mats down too much
when cut and not enough when not
Economical Hog Trough.
When rough lumber is $18 a thou
sand, a six-foot hog trough made of
two-Inch plank costs about 60 cents
for lumber. Labor and nails add 26
cents to the cost My hogs destroy
from one to three such troughs in a
year, says a Writer In an exchange.
Feed gets wasted, too, for a new trough
Is seldom made till the old one Is poor
er than it ought to b. Three troughs
at the above, estimate cost S3.25. An
Iron trough six feet long costs $2.25,
and will last a lifetime. Much think
ing is not needed to decide which kind
ot trough Is the cheaper.

bages and found It advantageous,

Small boys were collecting firewood,
