There were fifty new Granges or

the first quarter of this year, Ohio

each; Colorado and Oregon 3 each;

. The Grange News of Seattle sug
gests: Separate milk on the farm
while it is still warm. The fat will
then flow readily through the ma
chine. The temperature should be
85 degrees or more for the average
separator. When the temperature is
86 degrees or less more fat is left in
the skim milk. Speed of the machine
will also affect the amount of fat left
in the milk.
"The reasonable view of co-operative
marketing," says Q. B. Jesnes of
the Kentucky Experiment Btation, "in
that it gets results for its members
by performing services, and not by at
tempting to fix prices at an artificial
level in disregard of actual market
The Eggsaminer, official bulletin
of the Co-operative Poultry Produc
ers, Porltand, tells poultrymer.: ''It
will pay you to take good care of
your eggs. Gather them often. Hold
them in a cool dry place, out of
drafts. Handle them carefully (o
avoid cracking or injury to the con
tents." A Grant county veterinarian says
in the Eagle that foot-rot in sheep,
while annoying, is not particularly
serious, and may be cured by allow
ing the animals to stand five minutes
in troughs containing six inches deep
of solution composed of blue-stone,
one pound to the gallon of water. He
says that the carbolic sheep dip, or
formaldehyde six ounces to gallon of
water is also good. In serious cases
the crust of the sore should be brok
en and the pus squeezed out before
The 0. A. C. advises the use of land
plaster as a stimulant in corn grow
ing, only a small amount in each hill
The Oregon Farmer wisely counsels
butter makers to induce their home
merchants to handle only real butter
and no vegetable oil substitutes, and
also advises them - to quit sending
their money to distant mail-order
houses but to do their buying as near
home as possible.
Making silk out of the fiber of corn
stalks is a new venture in Illinois.
It is proposed to build a $2,000,000
plant at Peoria for this purpose. In
the com growing states the stalks
are largely wasted and if they can
be turned ii to artificial illk, as re
cent laboratory experiments have
demonstrated, a very important in
dustry is assured. ,
Cooperative effort is growing
among the farmers of Canada. Re
cently in southern Ontario, an organ
ization of fruit and vegetable ship
pers was formed for the purpose ol
bringing about closer cooperation be
tween the growers and shippers and
a better understanding of the prob
lems to be faced.
The Baker Democrat says that cat
tle prices are climbing and are now
the highest since the war, average
steers selling at 8 cents on foot and
scarce, and no marketable cows to
From State Board of Health.
Vaccine is a God-sent agent of pro
tection against one of the world's
worst diseases smallpox.
The vaccine is made only in estab
lishments which have shown by per
iodical inspection to possess the nec
essary personnel and equipment to
ptoduce a satisfactory product. The
calves in which the virus is grown
are kept in moderate heated stables,
'.hat are models of cleanliness. Each
calf is observed for a period of two
weeks prior to use, and none are ac
cepted but those shown to be perfect
ly healthy. A record of the history
of each animal is carefully kept, dat
ing from the time of purchase, thru
quarantine, propagation, the harvest
of the vaccine, and ending with the
autopsy of the animal which deter
mines if any disease other than vac
cinia was present.
The vnccine when harvested, is Im
mediately stored at temperatures be
low the freezing point to prevent
loss of potency. It is removed from
the cold only for such processing as
is necessary to prepare it for the mar
ket. It is ground and mixed with
sterile glycerin, then tested to deter
mine that it does not contain Bny
harmful Bubstance. Each lot is test
ed on the skin of animals to deter
mine that it will give good "takes"
and as an additional test, a large
quantity is injected into a guinea pig
to prove that it is harmless to this
After these tests are all completed,
the virus is placed in small capillary
tubes, one vaccination to each tube,
which, with a sterile needle and a
rubber bulb for expressing the virus,
composes the vaccination "outfit."
The manufacturer places the virus
on the market to remain for only
three months, and states that it must
be kept below 3 degrees C (41 degrees
F) during this time. It is obviously
impossible to follow each tube of
vaccine and insure this temperature,
but the doctor who uses the product
nnd the person on whom It is used
are entitled to know how it has been
kept since it loft the manufacturing
establishment. Below freezing is
best, ON the Ice next, and In the Ice
box third. Vaccine virus should
never be kept from tho cold, as some
lubes will lose potency In seven days
il they are not kept at a sufficiently
For the year old infant, the tot en
tering school and the boy and girl
grown to the dignity of adulthood,
vaccine is not only safe but neces
sary. It will insure them against
smallpox. NOW is the opportune
time to be vaccinated for now the
doctors and clinics and boards of
health throughout the country are
uniting in a practical campaign to
make you and every citizen of the
United States Immune. Auk your per
ronal physician for information or
consult your local board of health.
