The readers of this paper will be pleased to
learn that there is at least one dreaded disease
tiiat science has been able to cure in all itsstages
and that is catarrh. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is the
only positive cure now known to the medical
frat«rnity. Catarrh being a constitutional dis
ease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall’s
Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the sys
tem, thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and assisting
nature in doing its work. The proprietors have
so much faith in its curative powers, that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for any case that it
fails to cure. Send lor list of testimonials.

The Care of Milk.
The following is a compilation of di

cheese factories in connection with the
care of milk.

Place cans in cold water at once. Cool
Practice cleanliness with a big C.
Milk pails, strainers, and coolers

Rinse cans in warm water, scald with
hot water, and air as much as possible.
Have cans washed and scalded thor
oughly and well aired.
Stir the milk at least two or three
times while cooling.
When the milk is cooling, cover the
cans with cheese-cloth.
Do not put covers on the cans over
night, but use a thin cloth.
Always leave covers off the milk un
til the animal heat has disappeared.
Never mix morning's milk with
night's milk until both are thoroughly
If warm milk is added to cold, it pro

The sudden dying of young chicks in
hot weather is almost always caused
by lice. Look around the head and
neck, and a few big fellows may be
seen which torment the chicken so
that it cannot be thrifty. Rub some
grease of any kind about the head and
neck and under the wings. This is
sure death to the pests and does tile
chicks no harm. It is well to use It as
a preventive, for if lice get on the
chicks in hot weather, many chicks
will die before the remedy can be ap
It is far better to rot the weeds by
burying them under the soil while green
than to rely on burning them after they
have ripened their seeds. It is com
monly supposed that when a weed is
burned, Its seed also perishes. Only if
piled on brush, which will make coals
of tire at the bottom of the heap. Is
this the case. The weed seed drops as
the pod which encloses it shrivels with
heat, and as carbonic acid gas settles
to the bottom of the heap, the noxious
seed bs preserved from burning.
