.ONE STAR DAIRIES
Producers Are Consumers of
Millions of Gallons of Milk.
Creameries of Texas Furnish But
Small Portion of immense.Amount
of Butter Used—Bulk of Product
, Goes to Four Big Cities.
According to "The Dairy Industry of
Texas," a bulletin Just Issued by the
department of agriculture, and writ-
ten by Prof. Charles H. Alvord, profes-
epr of agriculture at the Agricultural
and Mechanical college, Texas has
produced 251,342,698 gallons of milk
(according to latest statistics obtain-
able), and sold only 8,091,205 gallons
©f this amount. This would indicate
ihat the excess of 243,000,000 gallons
bf milk was consumed by the pro-
Even the man living in the city kept
his family cow, says Prof. Alvord, and
produced his own dairy products.
Prof. Alvord says:
"In the year 1905-06 the department
of agriculture of the United States re-
ports the following number of pounds
of condensed milk used In the follow-
ing cities: Austin, 144,000 pounds;
Dallas, 769,480 pounds; Fort Worth,
666,400 pounds; Houston, 2,231,136
pounds; Galveston, 960,000 pounds;
San Antonio, 703,200 pounds; Waco,
215,216 pounds, or a total for one
year of 5,688,442 pounds.
"This amount of condensed milk
will represent approximately an equiv-
alent of 2,000,000 gallons, or almost
one-fourth the amount of sweet milk
which was reported sold in the entire
state by the census of 1900. From
the same report of the department
of agriculture, we find that the daily
amount of milk sold in Dallas in
1905-06 was 2,000 gallons; Fort Worth,
600 gallons; Galveston, 1,120 gallons;
Waco, 4,000 gallons, or a total of
3,182,800 gallons *for these four cities
during the year.
"The same cities during the same
length of time consumed approximate-
ly 3,000,000 pounds of condensed milk,
which would represent an equivalent
of 1,250,000 gallons of sweet milk, or
an equivalent of four-tenths of the
amount of sweet milk they pur-
Prof. Alvord also finds that practi-
cally the same conditions obtain as to
butter, that the Texas creameries have
produced only a small proportion of
the butter consumed in the state. The
cities mentioned consumed in 1905-06
2,812,870 pounds of butter, or a con-
siderably greater amount than was
produced by all of the Texas cream-
CHEAP FRAME FOR HAY BARN
Cheap and Substantial Building May
Be Constructed by Following
Plan Given Hferewith.
(By J. WESLEY GRIFFON.)
On many farms beautiful buildings
eould occupy the space given to old,
unsightly shacks — buildings which
•would shelter all surplus hay and fod-
der, and they would pay their first
cost eaqh year used.
One of the cheapest and yet most
substantial buildings may , be con-
structed after the plan in the accom-

small buildings, yet where the struc-
ture is to be 16 or 18 or 24 feet in

9 ' The bents should be framed to stand
six or eight feet apart, according to
the size of the- building.
Each bent should be framed and put
together before it is raised. The plates
should be nailed or bolted to the top
of posts so they will answer for top
nail ties as well as a support for the
The center and lower nail ties for
the siding should be of the same
thickness as the plates. The roof may
be of any suitable material at hand,
when properly put on and cared for,
will give good service.
The frame work need not be so
heavy where the stuff to be housed
rests on the ground floor.
Saving Doctor Bills.
▲ good garden saves many doctors'
6111b, and is less costly. Have an or-
chard and fruit garden to go along
with the vegetable garden; and there
.are only a few occasions when you
will have to call the doctor.
Asparagus and Rhubarb.
The asparagus and rhubarb beds are
usually located on one side of the gar-
den, but their growth is more satis-

they can be cultivated frequently.
MAKING COVERED FEED RACK
One of the Most Serviceable Appun
tenances of Farm Barnyard—
How It Is Constructed.
The illustration will show how to
make one of the most serviceable
buildings about fhe barnyard.
A covered feed rack for winter feed-
ing of corn fodder or any variety of
hay or grains. It answers also for
shade during the summer and shelter
for the manure deposited under it—

A feed trough for grains, mill feed,

This also catches the loose hay or
corn which falls through, and the
stock gets it cleaned up instead of
tramping it under foot.
A rack like this will cost about $10,
for one 16 or 18 feet long, and will
save many times its cost in one sea-

they can consume they will make a
better growth than if given a good

Pigs will make a better growth on
less feed if allowed the run of a good
clover pasture than with any other
plan of feeding during the summer.
Friend of the Farmer.
That birds will increase as groves
increase is a foregone conclusion.
That they should increase is greatly
to be desired. The increase of birds
means a corresponding decrease of
insect pests. Could the increase of
birds be made sufficient, they could
take care of the insects, or at! least
many species of them, that harm the
farmer., These enliven the groves
with their song. They are the friends
of the farmer and he ought to give
them every chance.
Mules and Horses.
According to the ^latest reports of
the United States department of ag-
riculture, the increase of mules and
horses on farms in the United States
was less than two per cent. On Jan-
uary 1 of the present year the num-
ber of horses was estimated at 21,-
040,000, as against 20,640,000 January
1, 1908. The number of mules was
estimated at 4,123,000, as against
4,053/)00 last year.
Celery Is Easily Grown.
Celery is as easily grown as any
vegetable. Set the plants on the sur-
face of the ground, in rows alternating
two feet and one foot apart. Mulch
the wide space with manure when the
plants are eight inches high, then set
boards so as to board the two rows
together that are one foot apart, to
Essentials of Fertility.
The essential elements of fertility
of any soil are nitrogen, phosphoric
acid, potash and lime. These are likely
to be lacking in any soil. Other ele-
ments, silica, chlorine and iron are
also necessary, but are usually pres-
ent in sufficient quantity for the use

Paint Lick Lady
For the Great Benefit That Cardui,
the Woman's Tonic, Was to
Her When Sick
Paint Lick, Ky.—"I suffered so much
from womanly trouble," writes Mrs.
Mary Freeman, of Paint Lick, Ky.,
"before I commenced to take Cardui.
"I was so weak from it, that I was
down on my back nearly all the time.
"I have taken three bottles of Cardui
and it has done me more good than
any medicine I ever took in fny life.
"I can't possibly praise it too highly,
it has done so much for me and I will
do all I can to help you for I think it
is the only medicine on earth that will
cure female troubles."
You need not be afraid to try Cardui,
for in doing so you are making no new
experiment in drug dosing or in tablets
of concentrated mineral ingredients.
Cardui as a medicine, as a tonic for
weak, tired, worn-out women, is time-
tested, safe, reliable. It has helped
others and should certainly help you.
Composed of gentle-acting, herb in-
gredients, its action is mild and nat-
ural and it has no bad after-effects, as
have many of the powerful drugs,

BABY'S SKIN TORTURE
J^Vhen our baby was seven weeks
old he broke out with what we
thought was heat, but which gradually
grew worse. We called in a doctor.
He said it was eczema and from that
time we doctored six months with
three of the best doctors in'Atchison
but he only got worse. His face, head
and hands were a solid sore. There
was no end to the suffering for him.
We had to tie his little hands to
keep him from scratching. He. never
knew what it was to sleep well from
the time he took the disease until he
was cured. He kept us awake all
hours of the night and his health
wasn't what you would call good. We
tried everything but the right thing.
"Finally I got a set of the Cuticura
Remedies and I am pleased to say
we did not use all of them until he
was cured. We have waited a year
and a half to see if it would return
but it never has and to-day his skin
is clear and fair as it possibly *fcould
be. I hope Cuticura maiy save some
one else's little ones suffering and
also their pocket-books. John Leason,

Wall paper is expensive—it costs money
to buy it, to hang it and again to re-

wall there is only the slight cost of the
material—any one can brush it on—and it
is not necessary to wash it off the wall
when a fresh coat is required.
'It is very easy to mix, very simple to
apply, but the results are simply beauti-
ful. A whole house can be done at just
a little more than the cost of a single

And this is true, that now that we have
so much better materials for use in the
decoration of our homes, that wall paper,

With a better understanding of the transient nature cf the many physi-
cal ills which vanish before proper efforts—gentle efforts — pleasant
efforts—rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge that so many
forms of illness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a consti-
pated condition of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup
of Figs and Elixir of Senna, promptly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly
by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the
fact that it is the only remedy which promotes internal cleanliness,
without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is, therefore, all-im-
portant, in order to get its beneficial effects, to purchase and note that
you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the California
Fig Syrup Co. only.
It is pleasant and refreshing to the taste, and acts gently yet promptly
on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleanses the system effectually, dispels
colds, headaches and fevers and assists in overcoming habitual constipa-
tion permanently, also biliousness and the many ills resulting therefrom.
The great trouble with all other purgatives and aperients is not that they
fail to act when a single dose is taken, but that they act too violently and
invariably tend to produce a habit of body requiring constantly augmented
doses. Children enjoy the pleasant taste and gentle action of Syrup of
Figs and Elixir of Senna, the ladies find it delightful and beneficial
whenever a laxative remedy is needed, and business men pronounce it
invaluable, as it may be taken without interfering with business and does
not gripe nor nauseate. When buying note the name, California Fig
