at i too much to ay that any man

broad basis of truth in the proposi

pregnant talks, answered a question on
to his own. superb vitality by taying:
"I order my life from hour to hour. I
know- how much nature can do, and
meet her demands." Ilia regimen, ac
cording to the New York World, in
cludes a cold bath every morning, fol
lowed by vigorous exercise, and deep
breathing of fresh air, a "steaming
eiip of coffee and several crisp, hot
rolls," succeeded after dressing by a
second breakfast a mbstantial meal
of soft-boiled eggs, chops or ham and
tea. After this breakfast, at eight
o'clock, he walks briskly in the open
air for hulf an hour, lie eats a hearty
luncheon and a nib.stantial dinner "at

or four hours of re Teat ion in the even

than 12 hours of broken repose. He

bodied the atne wisdom in his saving
that "a inan'&ovvn .observathm of what

A western man visiting in New
York recently was more than ever
amused at the assumption of superi
ority which he found among native.'
of the eastern city. In connection
with this nll-pcrvailing conceit h'
mentions a curcumstance which came
under his observation. While in New
York he was invited to the studio of
a couple who have the only literary
salon on Manhattan island. The
couple, by the way, are both from
the middle west. One celebrity after
another was pointed out to him, but
not one of them was a native of
Gotham. "Where are the born-and-bred
New- Yorkers?" he asked. II jm
friend replied: "Among thin kind of
people the ones who do things
there are no Yorkers."

I wish to give you a few hints on
milking cows. The faun hand who
knows how to milk properly is more
valuable to the careful dairyman than
any other hety. fv, milk u cow re
quires time antl-paVaikce. The milk
should be drav4j.h1yr.fy' anil steadily,
inline cows have, aery "-tender teats,
and if you want a well-disposed cow,
be gentle in your treatment .toward
her, as she is naturally impatient and
does not like rough handling. With
constant irritation she will fail in
quantity of milk.' As the udder be
comes filled with milk she is anxious
V be relieved of its contents and will
seldom offer resist ence without a
cause. When a patient cow becomes
fractious we can always trace it to
the milker. Note this: We should
not allow them to stand a long time
waiting to be milked. When cows
give a large quantity of milk it is
very nainful when the udder has
filled to the utmost therefore causing
them to become very nervous and
restless. To delay milking at the
proper time wjll do more to cause
a cow to go dry before her period
than anything rise. She should also
be milked to the last drop, if pos
sible, for the last portion of milk is
said to be the richest. Still another
point: There are many ways of con-
ducting n dairy. Among ihese are:
Wholesome food, such as wheat bran,
cottonseed meal. Always be careful
to keep the cows well salted, pro
tected from bad weather, giving kind
handling, careful milking, regular
feeding, clean stabling, good ventila
tion and plenty of pure water. In
some sections we have what is called
bitter weed, which cows are fond of,
causing the milk to become so much
affected that it is hardly fit for use.
I find that by giving the cow about
two tablespoonfuls of sugar at each
meal for two or three days the milk
is entirely relieved of the bitter
taste. Harnum's Midland Farmer.

Neuralgia of Heart,
Dr. Miles' Heart
Neuralgia of the heart causes sudden
death. It is in acute affection of the car
diac nerve, just ss neuralgia is of the nerves
of the face, usually, and sciatica is of the
nerve trunk of the thigh. One of its most
frequent symptoms is derangement of the
stomach and liver. Strengthen the heart's
actioa and enrich the blood with Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure; tone up the nerves with Restor
ative Nervine and you will soon be cured.
"Nervous exhaustion and liver trouble so
affected my wife's health that she was greatly
run down; neuralgia of the heart set in and
for a long time she was very close to the bor
der line of life and death. She was attended
hy two rood physicians who did all they
could forher, but in spite cf everything she
grew worse right along. One day I saw an
advertisement of Dr. Miles' Nervine and
New Heart Cure, and the doctor's explana
tion of the effects of nervous trouble upon
the heart seemed so logical that I decided to
give the remedies a trial. We now know
that the stomach and liver tioubleswere part
of the heart weakness. She improved won
derfully at once. Her appetite picked up,
r.he slept well at night and the rain around
her heart rapidlydisappeared. 1 hanks to Dr.
Miles' Heart Cure in a few weeks she was
able to be up and attend to her household
duties, and in a few months every s en of
nervous and heart trouble had vanished."

Cleaning Dairy Vtenalla.
To clean tin utensils properly rinse
them in lukewarm water. Never al
low the milk ndhering to the vessel
to dry, as it is hard to remove it
then. Scrub the vessels in hot water
with some cleaning material, euch as
soda or soap, added to it, rinse in
clean hot water, and finally expose
utensils io live steam, if possible, or
put into boiling water for a come
what longer time. 11 vessels are
treated to live steam, they will dry
quicker. After washing, remove to
a place where the atmosphere is pure,
and which la exposed to sunshine.
