There is nothing in tho situation ox cept complete victory for tho ntire Republican ticket In support of this position I wish to submit tho following facts Lust year Roosevelt carried this county by 117 majority This year the poll of the county taken by care nJltjolI ticket The county on a fair square vote is Republican by fully 5100 major ity There is absolutely no disaffection in the party never before was the party as harmonious and as united as it is now We have a splendid ticket which we oiler to tho people for then support They are men of ability fully capable of fulfilling all th duties and respon sibilities of the offices to which thoy aspire They are clean men in their private tires and every citizen is as eared fair and just treatment at their hands in case they are elected They have made a careful canvass of the county meeting the voters face to face and explaining to them their position on all questions affecting the interests of the county They have conducted a fair honorable campaign such is appeals to tne fair utimded citizens They have abused laid null ed no opposing candidate though tempted to ret hate in kind the abuse and ridicule hiapra upon them with out cause They have not employed a man to write abuse of others be cause they were too cowardly to ass same responsibility for the stuff themselves Nor have they permitted any one elso to do so The people know who are responsible for this phase ot the campaign and it will recoil with tontold force on the heads of those who have injected this bitter ness into the canvass The people of Breckenridge county are getting ex treiroly tired of this method of campaigning They demand an honest upright and dignified canvass on the part of those candidates whom thy wish to support but the intelligent voters of all parties have long since learned to place upon these impotent vaporings their true value and real worth Thoy know that it is like a tale told by an idiot full of sound wild fury signifying nothing The Republican election officers are intelligent capable men and no fraud can be carried through success fully with them on guard I think it will not be attempted Everything tends

the ad valorem tax 11 cents on each 100 Since the present constitution the poll tax has been and cannot exceed 150 for general expenses The year 1U01 was the last yeai of Republican rule the year 100U tho first year of the present administration This statement for the year 1002 shows a decrease over the year IDOl the sum of J422the year 100312187 and the year 1104 I1C40 The Breckonridge Democrat claims this to be a reduction in the amount of the taxes and a casual observer looking over the settlements of tho sheriff and this statement would take this to be true There is another fact however connected witu this that throws a different light over it alto gether Jn 1003 the fiscal court reduc ed the poll tax for general expenses to 1 00 and added CO cents poll tax to the road tax The Republicans put the poll tax for general expenses at llftOand had no poll tax for road pur poses The number of tithes for tho year 1102 as shown by sheriffs Hottletnent for that year was 4 780 A poll tax of 50 cents would be 2305 The number of tithes tor the year I00i as shown by sheriffs settlement was 4810 apoll tax of oO cents would be 2405 The number of tithes for the year 1004 was 47JJI a poll of 50 cents would be 2 370 Add these sums to the amounts shown in this statement chargeable to the sheriff and wo would have for the year l102ItII Ilor the year ll0815 208 and for the year 1001 16817- IVs 1 Und then that the amount produc ed for wither year will exceed the amount levied by the Reptiolicans for any year white in power Ur deduct 50 cents from the poll tax by the He puolicans and we hind that the amount I levied and collected by them was LESS in any year while they were in power than that levied and collected by the Democrats in either of the three yours thelyenrI tithes for that year was 1280 this would make a oO cents poll tax of 2 143 Deduct this amount from 1441s and it leaves 12i7i and so for every year of Republican rule deduct 0 cents poll maid the amount ot taxes collected by them is LESS than for any of thE three years of the Democrats Yet in face of those facts which the sheriffs settlements will prove to he true the Democrats call the Repuh licans

the present count for theirs BEAR IN MIND constitution of the state of Kentucky THAT FROM 1883 TO 1004 THERE PUBLICANS WERE IN POWER SEVEN YEARS Out of these sums they paid the general expenses of the county The balance was applied to the bonded indebtedness of the county The records will show that the bond ed indebtedness of Breckenridge county when the Republicans came into power was 10200 In 1883 it was 10323 In ten years the Democrats reduced this indebtedness 123 What did the Robber Repub licans dot READ AND EXAMINE THE RECORDS In seven years they pals off TWELVE THOUSAND DOL LARS OF THIS INDEBTEDNESS leaving of these bonds only 7200 to be paid This is an average ot 1711 per year In addition to the payment of these bonds we find that the Democrats when they went out of power in 1804 order ed that claims amounting to 1218 be paid out of the levy for 1815 This amount the Republican administration paid for the Democrats About the close of the Republican ad ministration the east abutment of the Stepbensport bridge sunk about five foot and there was danger of tho bridge being lost Owing to high water some of the bridges between Stephens port and Cloverpork were washed away and had to be rebuilt This necessitated th raising of a sum of money and an expenditure that had not been anticipated when tho county levy was made tar that year and the Come Recr of taxes was authorized to lbar- row a sum sufficient to rebuild and re pair these bridges Ho borrowed 1J 000 and gave the bonds of county for that amount This increased the in debtedness of tue county as shown lby the Cumr Reers report of the sum of 10200 and thid was the amount of the bonded indebtedness of the county when the Republicans went out ot power When the Republicans went out ot UllrnlHjlLOntrridge county the sum of about 3000 as shown by Mr Barnes report record ed in sheriffs settlement book page Had the Republicans been permitted to use this money they would have paid all of the 3000 borrowed by them except about 150 and left the bonded indebtedness of the county 7I50 That part of the tax culled the sinking fund is intended to bo used for paying off the bonded iindebted ness In the settlement male for 1002 page 2T of sheriffs settlement book tho sheriff is charged with 3113 For lOirtt paste 12he la charged with 2213 For 1014 page 42t he is charged with 3257 waking 0583 for the three years What it will be for 1005 cannot bo known until the settlement is made The lepoits made by our Comr IX Recr W K Barnes show that in these three years he received other funds in his hands than tie amount derived from taxes His report made in October 1002 page t88 shows that in eluding the amount paid him by the sheriff ha applied to tho sinking fund 2322 His report of April 1004 pa u 3GO 3217 and his report of April 1005 page 300 i500 waking in all 8045 Add to this 2318 sinking fund tax for 1003and we have 110258 If this amount had been applied to the public debt together with the amount turned over to him by the Republicans the bonded debt would have been liquidated and a surplus left in his hands Instead however of the bonded iudebt edness being paid we find that only 4100 has neon satisfied and a balance of 0100 is still unpaid What has become of this Sinking FundV These reports of Mr Barnes and the orders of the fiscal court shows that more than once there has been a shortage in some levy and the sheriff would pay more money than tho tax amounted to and Mr Barnes would be dironted to pay back to him One order alone directed him to pay this sheriff 2153 This sinking fund that should have been used to satisfy this bonded debt has been used tor other purposes to a great extent What it1IThe Democrat says that the Rep b licans in two doubling jumps raised the ad valorem tax from 10 cent on the 100 to 40 cents This is true but why uid not tho Democrat tell why this was done Time records it appears to show jit and the Democrat knows it We have stated that under our State constitutidn the poll tax is limited to 150 For mote than twentyfive years our poll tax had been 300 and this was our principal source of reve nue When this reduction took place there were 4080 tithes in the county making the poll tax 12240 This wus reduced one h8IfO120 Tina deficiency haul to be met and an ad valorem tax was the only remedy The levy was in creAsed 10 cents making the ad valorem tax 20 cents on the 100 Jump num ber one When the tax system for work ing the ronds was inaugurateda tax of 20 cents on the 100 was levied raising the ad valorous tax to 40 cents Jump number two The reduction of the poll tax and tho levy of the road tax caused this increase in the ad valorem tux If the Democrat wanted the tiuth told why did it not publish these facts It knew them and supressess them Suppressing the truth suggests a falsehood The Democrat claims the Democratic administration has saved the people 82000 and they figuro 5t in this way 10073 all from the road dlsb let

expense something over 1000 the whole amounting to 22007 The Democrat prefaces its tabulated statement in this manner Let us lay prejudices aside and look these facts in the face as we find them NUll act according to the conclusions we form by exorcising an honest unbiased judg ment lI have taken the assessed valuation of wealth in the county as it Is given us each yearand calculated the amount of

our e is the saving For the sake of brevity I have added tho General Fund Patipei Fund and Slaking Fund together under the head of County Expense and following are tabulated state ments of tho amounts saved on the several funds for the different years Now why not go to the records for tile road tax and get the foots and figures and show the truth The records show his tabulated statement to be

oppressive and a i burden The records in the Bracken I ridge county clerks biked the acts of the fiscal court will tnrow light on the matter LET US EXAMINE THE RECORDSTho levied a road tax of 20 cents on the 100 and reduced number of days for working the Ithe by calling out tho hands to lays in the year and had they continued in power the two working days would have been done away with The Democrats decreased the road tax 10 cent 8 and increased the working days on the road to four with power and authority in the supervisor or road overscerto call out the hands in case of emergency as many days in the year as they may see fit That apparent saving of 5571 in four years to the people Is an average of 1803 per year In 1004 there were 4754 tithes in this county This sav fug of II 1303 in a year amounted to 35 cents to each tithe The number of road hands in the county is about 4500 T3ey are required to work four days in the year two days more than Republicans required These two days labor is worth 200 The labor of 4 500 at 2 00 amounts to 0000 So- we see that 4500 people are taxed 0000 to save to the tax pavers 1303 What have the people gained by this wonderful tax saving method In tour days at 1 ncr day the peo pIe pay 18000 taxes In four years at 2 they pay 30OuOat 4 72000 Is this u relief or a burden to the people It is a burden to tliree fourths of the tax payers of

county attor ney for Breokenridge county and served until January 1 1002 He was not county attorney in 1800 He opposed and fought this Jump settlement with the sheriff from the beginning of hit term in office The first settle ment while he was county attorney was made by J U Cunningham with V B Burtons Admr Burton was dad and could net make the affidavit Ibis being the situation the court allowed 3250 instead of a delinquent list Morris Eskridge then notified the court and the sheriff that he would fight such a settlement as long as he was county attorney The next and last settlement while he was county attorney was made by J O Lunningham with F PPayno Morris Fskrldge insisted on a delinquent list as required by law A spirited dis onssion arose and resulted in the court allowing 1500 to the sheriff instead of 2250 This was tho result of the fight made by Morris Eskridge and resulted in saving to the people 750 and was the last sett1 ment passed on by the Republicans Tho Republican court was the first to attack the jump settlement system 1 rom this beginning and from this tight made by Morris Eskridge the jump settlement plan was brOKen up The judge magistra tes sheriff jailer and the records of the court will corroborate this Penalties and The Railroad District Tax The Democrat makes two more complaints against the Republican officials and claims that the present administration has saved the people in time way of penalties 4000 and the railroad tax district 1158 In regard to the 4000 penalties After the death of VB Burton S A Pate and V B Burtons administrator were sued to recover penalties alleged to hove been collected by them These suits have never been decided the pleadings have not been made up and no one can tell what the Fortwentysuffered the same character of settle ments to be made by Democratic sheriffs and no attention paid to it Let the people withhold their judg moist in this matter until the court t settles it for the question is now in court The suits will show time amonnt sued for is under 4000 In regard to the 1158 railroad tax district matter the commission to be allowed the sheriff in special railroad tax district was settled by the court ot appeals Foinetime before the first settlement of railroad taxes was wade under the present administration and it has simply obeyed the decision of a higher court The Democrat writes a long state ment concerning the railroad tax and the sheriff s commission It says the sheriff collected 10 per cent commis- Sion when he should have collected only 4i per cent The charter for the railroad under which this tax was votedhas this clause An annual tax sufficient to pay the semiannual installments of interest on such bonds and the principal when it shall become due shall be collected and paid out by the officers of such countyoity or town as piovided in the case of other county oity or town tax Tho first railroad tax settlement was made nmier a Democratic court by a Democratic commissioner while a Demo cratic county attorney was the advisor of tbe court and the money pale over to a Democratic receiver i+ WIifthis 10 per cent commission v ao illegal why did these rntn not bring suit to crrrect it Time precedent of 10 per cent commission was sot by the Democrats There were judges and lawyers all over the state that held that the 10 per cent commission was legal

much fraud practiced in campaigns these days we should uphold every good law that will bring about fair and hottest elections We noticed in recent issue of the News that the editor of certain Demo

the political system in effect in the United States often robs this selection of Its personal character A newt elected President may know of nine men in his circle of business social and political acquaintances whom he would like to have him as counsellor- and whom he believes would make ef ficient heads of departments in the administration of Government law and business The exigencies of poll

years of hIs life trying to color a meerschaum pipe keeping it closed most of the time in a case sons to prevent it getting scratched and Its nlsh being dulled by the oil and moisture from his hands only to find at the end of that period that he had been tenderly nursing nn imitation instead ot the genuine ccumo de mer The best imitation Is composed of the par- Ings of genuine meerschaum combined with a mineral clay These compositions can usually be determined from the genuine meerschaum by their greater weight but there Is no absolutely certain test for distinguishing the counterfeit One method of test Is to look for slight imperfections Com osltlon bowls never exhibit these light blemishes which result from the presence of foreign bodies in the natur- al11 meerschaum however as the blem- Ishes do not usually manifest themselves until after the bowl has been used for some time the test Is not of much value In buying new pipes ccrschaum is n silicate of magnesia and preparatory to carving It is soaked In a composition of wax and oil The wnx and oil absorbed by the meerschaum are the cause of the coloring Ott the pipe due to smoking and in connection with the further absorption of nIcotine Where meerschaums have been smoked for some time without having acquired a good color they can frequently be improved by rubbing when warm with beeswax lit Weakness of English Colonies The

She was reading a boot while waiting for the boat to start The Spray a small pleasure steamer tugged at her mooring ropes off Brighton pier The Honorable Geoffrey Mannerlng watched from the deck of the West Pier this fragile figure of a girl There was something more than admiration in his gazd Ive been caddish enough ho mut tered The girl is scarcely more than a stranger to me The loan of an um brolla in a soaking downpour made us acquainted I should not have presum ed upon such a triviality butbut ho broke off as the siren of tho Spray shrieked impatiently but I fell in love with her upon tho spot ho added and thats the plain sweet madden ing truth A band commenced 4o play softly under the bridge of the boat Verna Moore glanced up at the sound and Geoffrey turned away swiftly moving off with long strides- I must not go I must not really ho told himself Heaven forbid that I should win her htmrt Verna had seen Geoffrey as he turned away A glow of color swam into her cheeks followed by a loop of disappointmentVerna was a governess She had been sent to Brighton to recover from the effects of an illness Sho had met Geoffrey Mannering there for the first time Yes Im in love but having made the confession to myself I must forget it drop this affair like a hot coal Geoffrey told himself It is Just mad ness and Claire coming down to Brighton today Madness it was For the Hon Geoffrey Mannerlng was engaged to be married to Claire Ashberry a baronets o daughter and an heiress It had been an early attachment it had grad ually developed into an engagement partly because everyone expected that it would and Society insisted upon it Yet now Geoffrey remembered certain NOT GOODBVEAFTEIl I words which Clairo Ashberry onco spoke to have always liked you she had said and am willing to become your wife I must tell you that anoth eryou need not know his naoia awoke a feeling deeper than liking and claimed my heart But there were obstacles in the way my parents came between us and he went abroad prom ising to see me again Again the Spray shrieked for more passengers for her trip to Worthing She would start in five minutes Geof frey hesitated A hand was laid upon his shoulder and a voice said speaking in a low toneIWhy Mannerlng is it you Geoffrey turned lIe was face to face with an exceedingly handsome manMolyneuxyou I Hush for heavens sake expostu lated the

belong to no nationality I servo all who asli me You know that Come hide me somewhere I For old times sake A bell clanged on board the Spray Geoffrey snatched at his card case scribbling a There ho said go to the Hotel 0 give my ma that card Hell look after you until I come A thousand thanks Geotrrey- Uaver The sentence was left unfln P ished Mannerings resolution had broken down at the last moment Ho would make the trip to Worthing after all t Put your hands higher up Verna nearer to my neck We aro safe if you keep still The swimmer row on tho crest of a long green swell travelling shoreward- A terrible explosion had occurred in the engine room of the Spray She had sunk in less than fifteen minutes with her return Journey but half ac complished There had been no panic but her two boats were filled to the very gunwales with their human freight Six men were venturing to swim to meet the boats putting off from tho shore Geoffrey Mannerlng was one of them Ho had assured Verna of his ability to save her If she would trust herself to him rather than to the overladen boats Verna kept perfectly still Her feet trolling In the water gave her a terri fying sensation as of floating upon In finite depth Tho strong frame of tho swimmer supporting her moved forward with Its steady strokes How calm ho seemed how confident At thalmoment she loved him most yet at that moment she knew that sho might never be his On the return journey to Brighton Geoffrey had told her all had made his confession Ho had said I love you loved you from the day that we met That Is all my defence There had been a long and dreadful pause while she wrestled with her pain with her temptation Then she had answered We must say goodbye Wo must never meet again When we land wo must shake hands for the last time You could not help loving me any more than I could help loving you Yes I love you but this is a barrier which wo cannot overcomo And then almost immediately after wards the accident had occurred The sea was very cold the warm suns of summer had not yet penetrated its chilly bosom He was becoming stilt IT WAS ALL him- I yet never last Aus that line with cold The girls weight which had felt so light at first now pressed him lower and lower The sea kept washing over his face Onward he swam though drawing now upon that strength which despair will give AtI a furlong from the shore he was A boat turned his way Then camo a final struggle to keep afloat He was dragged on board with his burden when at the point of utter exhaustion The journey shoreward gave him time to recover strength With his own hands ho lifted Verna Into a cab They were driven to her lodgings in Old Steyne He took her in his arms and gave her one long passionate kiss Then with a repressed sob Tie left her Ho was never to meet Verna again She had pointed his way of duty and he must follow it Geoffrey turned his steps toward his hotelIt was afternoon A procession of every conceivable kind of carriage rolled along tho Kings Road By the Brunswick lawns tearing along the front at a mad speed came a powerful motor car The driver was a man and at his side closely veiled sat a lady Scarcely perceiving the rushing car Geoffrey crossed in front of it A loud shout and a furious bellow from a horn made him look up as ho dashed for wardSurely he knew the driver And that veiled lady Something in the poise of her body suggested a namebut no he told himself that he was half silly nearly dropping with fatigue Geoffrey staggered into his rooms His valet met him just in time to save him from falling For at that mo ment his senses left him and ho lost consciousness C It was an hour before the accident which sank the Spray in six fathoms off Brighton beach Richard Molyneux exarmy officer gamester spy duellist waited In much perturbation In Geoffreys private sit Cni Molyneux noticed that the space be tween the portico grounds and the was patrolled by a gen tlcmnlylsea fellow Again growled Molyneux I seem unable to give that brute the slip Through tho open window he heard tho roar of a motorcar It ceased as it drew near to the building Up and down paced the fugitive fuming and frettingSuddenly ho turned swiftly The door was open and he heard the voice of Geoffreys servant No he will not be long madam and if you will waltaho I had for gottenA and beautiful figuro entered the room Seeing Molyneux she uttered a sry of astonishment Molyneux whose feelings never betrayed him turned to the servant and dismissed him with a couple of words Then he faced the newcomer ho took her hands ho looked long and ardent ly into her face which paled thQn burned with crimson Claire You here After all these years I The woman trembled In a moment tho deeps of a passion she believed sho had sealed forever broke forth She clung almost fainting to his broad shoulders Richard Molyneux it was whom she had loved in the past Ho exercised an extraordinary fascination over Claire Ashberry 1 came to see Geoffrey she explained hurriedly I am staying at Hastings Ho expected me at Brighton today I came over to tell him that I must defer my visit That 1is all And yoUyouwhat are you do- Ing hero In this room Geoffreys roomDidnt you know that ho was ia friend of mine CIA friendto you Claire dlsenga cd herself from those strong arms- I mi him two hours back lIe promised to hide me To hide you The voice rang out In alarm True enough Molyneux laughed bitterly Come here said he drawing her to the win dow You see that manah there are three of them Trapped Forgetful of everything save his danger Claire Ashberry clung to Moly neuxs arm Who are they Richard Who are those men she demanded imperiouslyPolice Let me go dear one Yes the old game State papers a se cret sold Youd better let me go I must escape You must escape you shall cried Claire wildly How The things Impossible If I had a fast carYou have There is mine it Is walt ing for me Come oh come quickly she implored For an instant Molyneux stood Irrea solute then ho said quite calmly- I will And you- I 1 go with you said Claire steadily- I shall strike northward into the Dover road If possible and quit Eng land tonight ho answered Where you go I go also said ClaireThey ran from tho room The car waited at the rear of the hotel A minute later they were flying like a gale down the Kings Road s t t t You mean to tell me Clarkson seriously that I have been in bed three daysThree days sir answered Geof freys servant A queer yarn this that you tell me about those two visitors went on Geoffrey thoughtfully They went off together you say Geoffrey broke the seal of the letter which had just are rived and which bore a foreign post mark He sat as If stunned while his passageinCall my conduct madness or by fightIhas promised me many things Forgive me Geoffrey or If you cannot forgive forget me- Geoffrey roso after a long silence He turned his steps toward the Old Steyne but he had not covered a hun dred yards before he saw herVerna sitting on a chair on the Brunswick lawns She was looking out to sea A gorgeous sunset had purpled the waters of the channel Geoffrey went up to her softly slow ly so that she did not hear his approach And leaning over her chair suddenly ho whispered in her ear Verna It was not goodbyeafter- allI LION AGAINST TIGER Greater Bravery Shown By the Smaller Animal The owner of a

yourself in his skin and go through Ills tricks All you have is two performances a day cash money The Irishman readily assented to the proposition and being of bright wit and Intelligence soon learned all that was required of him The first afternoon of the show he went through the paces well enclosed in a large iron cage and occasionally emitting a roar to startle the guileless countrymen In the evening the man ager thought he would cap the climax by announcing to the audience that be would place the lion In the tigers cage On hearing this the son of Erin was terrified beyond comprehension However with trembling steps he went into the tigers cage but at once crept up into a corner praying to himself Faith God help me In this terrible trouble he moaned Kape away from me the scratches of

half living in this country But how much of this sort of thing will bear Investigation and close analysis The Dairy Division of the United Sates Department of Agriculture is a progressive and useful institution and has done several things to destroy prevailing fallacies and incidentally establish the fact that American methods as a whole in at least some phases of agriculture are as far if not farther advanced than those of any other coun tryNot the least interesting of such in formation gathered was that collected by the late Henry E Alvord for many years the chief of the Dairy Division I in a tour of the countries of Europe II SELLING MILK IN DE mARIII for the purpose of looking into the dairy industry of the continent Major Alvord stated first upon his return homo that while tin United States has never evolved a strictly dairy cow of its own it has now noth lag to gain through the importation of new blood from Great Britain the Channel Islands the Netherlands Den mark or France There are many pic turesque and useful breeds of milch cattle in these countries but they do not compare he stated with the adapted American breeds For Instance W Holland Cheese Market Danish Prize Winners Brittany in the north of France has within its borders pretty active little tilack and wliito cattle with marked dairy characteristics producing often an astounding quantity of milk for their size but they are believed to be useful in the United States only as playthingsAmerican Cow Stables Up to Average- In the stabling and general care of dairy cows no foreign country shows In general practice any methods or conditions better than our own While the average conditions throughout the country are undoubtedly far from what they should be the United States MODEL COOPERATIVE FRENCH CKEAMEHY farmer and dairyman are making as rapid strides forward as can bo found anywhereMajor Alvord found comparatively few places in Holland and Switzerland where there is such close relationship between the dairy cows and families as the occupancy of connecting apart ments so often described in poetic fancy by European travelers These II II II II n conditions do exist abroadwhere the cow Is taken in as a member of the familyas they do in no placo in the United States but they are tho exception Stables which in summer are converted into conservatories and rooms for weaving and cheese curing are the unusual and show places The construction of cow stables generally in the dairy countries of the Old World is of a substantial nature with little regard paid to light and ventilation COMBINED DWELLING AND COW STAB conveniences of arrangement or ease in cleaning While much attention is paid to cleaning cow stables it Is ap parent more from an appreciation of the value of the manure than from an effort to have sanitary conditions in the dairy Foreigners Provide Good Feed There is one thing where Europeans may be ahead of Americans They seem to be better versed In the feeding- of cattle Even the poorest peasants- do not hestitate to purchase concentrated cattle foods where necessary yet it appears that the only reuses the natives can give for this practice is the stereotyped answer My father dlfl 60 I The American farmer Major Alvord thought has undoubtedly a much more intelligent knowledge of the principles of feeding but there is probably more carelessness and waste in feeding ani mals of all kinds in America than any where else In the world The most astonishing feature of Eu rope in the care of milk on the farm is the entire absence of refrigeration in France and the general ignoring of the value of cold in dairying In tho matter of dairy appliances and equip surpassedbymark and parts of Great Britain stand about as well In most big cities of Europe there are a few wellconducted milk delivery usuallyfoundsome localities dairy animals are driven through the streets and milked at customers doors Milch cows are managed In tho same way oven in the best streets of Paris and of Rome Paris probably has the poorest milk service of any of the large cities Dur ing the Exposition at Paris in July 1900 a special show of perishable dairy products was held as an annex to that expositionParis Milk Exhibit Very Poor While the French producers had every opportunity of exhibiting their goods in the best possible shape the only samples of natural milk and cream absolutely free from chemical preservatives and uncooked which were sweet and palatable after noon thedairiesJerseythenTheAmericanMajorAlvord returnsupplycompanyperformanceIn while thero is am pie room for Improvement in our country tho only foreign country from which the United States can possibly learn anything is Denmark There the best creameries are models of cleanli ness good order and systematic management But all these details are accomplished only through a lavish expenditure of labor which would appal an American creamery manager It I not an uncommon thing for six or eight persons to bo constantly erai ployed for six or eight hours a day turning out a quantity of butter which is ordinarily made in this country b a man and a boy who have all tho work finished daily at 3 or 4 oclock in the afternoonMajor Alvord found it impossible toi draw any comparisons between the methods of cheesemaking and tho re suits in this country and those abroad It is believed that the American fac tory system common to tho UnitedIl States and Canada is superior to anything elsewhere In variety and cheese this continent can not fancyI LE IN DENMARKSTABLE IN FRONT tempt to compete with the Old World In order to learn tho bottom facts about making any of the famous spe cialties in cheese it is necessary to go to the locality where they originate Making Dairy Work Popular Americans find novelty In Europe in the fairs and markets where prod ucts of tho dairy are sold to tho highest bidder In Normandy tho wives and daughters of farmers and peasants as semblo by tho hundred in the parks or along tho streets selling thel mottes of butter The cheese fairs of Fromo England and Kilmarnock Scotland and the street markets of Alkmaar Hoorn and Utrecht Holland also present lively and interesting spectacles in connection with tho sale of dairy products Major Alvords observations show that while too much can not be said of the industry frugality and thrift of comparisonleadsthe Industry in tho United States are decidedly moro satisfactory in almost every particular Wholesome Cidcr Vinegar In an ordinary cheap restaurant the c safest thing to do If you wish to use some vinegar on your food is to try and get half a lemon Then you will know that you are not eating out tho lining I of your stomach with caustic chemi cals Vast quantities of pure cider vinegar are quite innocent of the meaning of apples and are distinctly injurious being purchased by the re tail dealer in barrels at seven to ten cents a gallon which every apple grower knows is a prohibitive price for cider vinegar However real cider vinegar is a good condiment The reason it can not be sold for the prices at which chemical vinegar is offered Is that it takes from one to three years to make properly The cider first must go through the process of alcoholization and then be changed into acetic acid There arc methods of artificially hastening this process but tho product is not first class and it can only be done on a large scale Tho ordinary big green cucumber pickles are usually quite free from cider vinegar The only way to make them edible is to soak the pickles in strong brine to extract the acid then to soak them in water to get out tho brine and finally pickle them in real vinegar Pure vinegar can bo made as wells from other fruits as from apples Grapes plums and other fruits which contain a considerable proportion of sugar which Is converted into alcohol and then into acetic acid make goody vinegar The Department of Agriculture has in press a short
