What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

ETIQUETTE OF THE DROSIIKY Being Allowed Selection of Companion 1 One Can Imagine Mode of Travel Enjoyable. The Siberian method of riding In a droshky requires an etiquette all its own. which, although sometimes sur- prising to the English traveler who encounters it for the first time, is based upon practical considerations. The danger of being thrown out has determined the prevailing usage, says Mrs. John Clarence bee in \Across Siberia Atone.\ If a eentleman escorts a lady. it is his task to hold her in the carriage— not an easy occupation. Ile accom- plishes it by putting his arm around her waist. A man who fails to do so is considered as lacking in courtesy. When you have become acquainted with the custom, it seems entirely sen- sible and comfortable, but it seems strange at first to find yourself set- tling back into a stranger's arms. An American, who had lived In Rus- sia and whom we met in Cilina. WM us that he was driving with a woman physician. a Russian, middle-aged, and of the rotund Russian type. He knew nothing about his duty toward her, and they thrashed round ' that three -by -five droshky until the woNnao turned angrily toward him. \Have you been brought up in the back woods that you don't know enough to hold me in this droshky?\ she said lie immediately put his arm round her waist as far as it would go, and held on hard.—Youth's Companion.

The last minstrel stopped at a back emir and said to the houset% lie who greeted him: \Give mc. something to eat, fair dame. and I will tickle your ears with a merry tale of romance.\ \But why not tell me the tale first?\ the dame suggested. No, I must have the food and drink before I talk.\ Thereupon the dame slammed the deer with the tart reply: - You're not a merry minstrel; you're as after -dinner speaker.\ Natural history neglects to inform us that the female elephant requires sn larger trunk than the male.

The Utility Blouse, and Others THE blouse for general wear is made of several materials besides those reliable cotton or linen wash fabrics which always have been and always will be good. Just now crepe de chine, which washes beautifully. and cotton or wool crepes are put into requisition and have proved themselves useful and afforded a means of variety as well. The pretty blouses of crepe de chine I are made in white and light colors, cut rather plain, and are usually deco- rated with sprays orembroldery in self color, very sparingly used Col- lars of fine batiste, and sometimes cuffs of the same, make the prettiest finish for them. Sleeves are long and necks high, although it remains to be seen whether the high collar will hold Its own or give place to the high necked guimpe. A detachable high collar is far more practical than the bloese and collar in one. The latter has to he washed as soon as the collar tecomes soiled, which is much too soon for the good of the she who nmst pay for its tubbing. A pretty blouse is shown here of wool crepe showing shaded stripes in yellow. brown, gray and occasional fine lines of black. It is made with a yoke and has long sleeves. A neat cellar of batiste finishes the neck. Such a waist will wear a long time tit bout needing to be washed, and will stand the washing. when it must be done, without detriment to its col- ors. That is, if care is taken, almost any waist made can be successfully washed. Printed chiffons are liked faesdres- side waists and are made up with laces into the loveliest affairs. Em- broidered voiles are dainty and more lasting than chiffons. If one wishes a sheer, fine. lacy -looking waist that will last long enough to pay for any amount of elaborate work in making and decoration, fine cotton voile is of all fabrics the best to use. For Wear Under Southern Skies blouse, or THOSE who journey south to meet 1 the spring, with heads bedecked in her honor, have a remarkably wide • range of choice in the new millinery. , In shape there are the diminutive \pill box,\ the numerous boat -shaped tur- bans, all aorta and kinds of sailors. many military styles, and lovely wide. brimmed hats in lacy straws and di- aphanous materials. As for trimmings, there are many new departures. All sorts of gayly - colored flowers (mostly small), a world of new ornaments of ribbons (mostly narrow), and innumerable hand -made decorations of silk, straw, kid, teeth - era and other things. Handwork is featured in this new , millinery. Ornamental stitches in needlework, much exaggerated in size, and cross-stitched designs are used , in finishing and applying trinnming. In fact, a large . part of the decora- tions are sewed flat to the shape in : the form of applique, the sewing being an important part of the scheme. In colors, beside the beautiful sand, I twine, and tan colors, tliere are many white hats, including penalties, a gray which is called \battleship\ play. without any good reason, and many shades of blue and red that may be called \reserved.\ Black seems not to be in the running.

PRODUCTION OF ANT1110G-CHOLERA SERUM Test Pigs—Those With an \X\ Are Check Pigs. I P.. (•1 I I:STER G STA lilt. Puratt, Ex- periment swims) The anti -hog -cholera serum used in the prevention of hog cholera is ob- tained from hogs that have recovered from an attack of cholera and have been rendered very strongly resistant to the disease. The modern serum laboratory is a manufactory in the full sense of the word. Healthy hogs are purchased either at home or at some market; they are vaccinated upon arrival at the serum plant, and good care is taken of them for three weeks. At the end of that time they have fully recovered from the effects of vaccination and are what are termed immunes. At the end of this time, the immunes are given very large doses of very virulent hog -chol- era blood. This blood is obtained in the better serum companies by buying healthy one hundred to one hundred and fifty -pound hogs, inoculating them with cholera blood alone. These virus hogs are killed as soon as they show high temperatures and visible signs of cholera. Their blood is carefully col- lected in bottles or jars, the fibrin fil- tered out and the resulting fluid is the virus used for injecting into the im- 1111111eS. Large quantities of virus are given each immune, a 200 -pound hog receiving front one to two quarts of this very virulent blood, depending on the methed used in injecting it. This dose of virus renders the immune very strongly resistant to cholera, and he Is now what is termed a hyperimmune, • Ten days after the injection of virus, if the hyperimmune is in good health, the rst bleeding is done. Since the tail .-ffers the only place available without danger of bleeding to death, it is se- lected as the place for bleeding. A small piece of the tail Is cut off and ie Wood. flowing from the cut, Is col- lected in bottles. After a certain quan- tity is- collected, the amount being roverned by the size of the hog, the tail is tied to prevent further bleeding. + ad the hog released. A week later Ihe hog can be bled again. One week tfter the second bleeding, a third bleed- ing is done. At this time the serum from the hyperimmune is becomIngless potent and the hog is rehyperimmu- nized by a fresh injection of virus. Af- ter the tail is clipped too short for further use, the hog is killed and all if the blood is collected. In some plants that are close by a packing ?MI'S(' one bleeding is done. The hog is killed at tile time oW the first bleeding Ind the blood collected. The carcass ,,s; inspected and passed for food if the :issues are normal. After the blood is collected in the lollies the fibrin is filtered out, the sse s „,e.ss --ssssessafftgs,,L fail Bleeding—Proper Aseptic Precau- tions, erum cooled and bottled. It is then Ilaced in a refrigerator to wait for the eating. This is done by trying the .erum with pigs and also in the best 'tants by a bacteriological examine - ion. The potency of the serum is ested by taking some pigs weighing .0 to 70 pounds that are not immune o cholera, injecting some of them nth hog cholera blood alone and the 'there with varying amounts of the 4eruna along with the hog cholera demi. The pigs that receive no serum -.re termed check pigs and should die 'rom cholera within from five to four- een days. The pigs receiving serum thould remain healthy. If the bacteri- ilegical examination shows no bacteria that are liable to produce blood poison- ing ($%• atiscesses and the potency test Is good. the serum of that particular bleeding is labeled with the serial num- ber of the test and placed on the mar- ket. In the main, this IS the process of manuffietnre of anti -hog -cholera se- rum. The varying results with different Serums that can be observed in a com- munity are due to difference in the cars and intelligence used in the man- ufacture. The potency of the serum is verned by the virulency of the virus used, the amount of virus in - Meted at one time, the method of in- Jection and the number of bleedings that are obtained before rehyperinitnu- nization. Other conditions being equal, the more virulent the virus, the more potent will be the serum. Nothing but the strongest virus possible should ever be used. Strains of virus that will produce fever and fatal sickness in seven to eight days are much pre- ferable to those that require an incu- bation of eight to ten days. The usual amount of virus injected at one time, when injected into the veins of the Immune, is six cubic centimeters for each pound of body weight. If less than this is used, the serum will be apt to be low in potency. The first and second bleedings are of stronger potency than the 4 third bleeding. In practice, equal parts of first, second and third should be mixed for the proper production of serum. Not more than six cubic centimeters of blood at any one time should be bled from the hyperimmune for each pound of body weight. The method of bleeding, whether from the tail until clipped too short for further use and neck at the final bleeding or from but one bleeding at tile neck as practiced by some serum companies, will not produce any differ- ence in the potency or in the - amount of foreign bacteria, provided that proper methods of sterilization are em- ployed. No virus should be used that is bled from hogs that show lesions of other diseases other than acute cholera. Each virus hog should be carefully ex- amined after bleeding. The amount of bacteria, and especially the number of pathcgenic bacteria, is due to the meth- ods of sterilization used. Each hog should be carefully cleaned and disin- fected, the tail or neck shaved and sterilized before bleeding, and all bot- tle's or jars should be eternized. All of the preparation and bottling should be done in clean qttarters free from any dust, and no vessels used that are not sterile. The potency test may be misleading through the use of pigs that are from immune mothers. These pigs may re- tain enough immunity that they will remain well even though the serum is low in potency. That is one of the reasons why check pigs are used, to show the natural immunity of the pigs. The pigs should also he of the same herd or litter and treated alike. Under the provisions of the new hog cliolera control law in Indiarla. Purdue university is charged with the testing of all hog, cholera serums and so-called cures that are sold in the state. All of the different serums exposed for sale in the state and a great many of the cures have been tested. The great- er majority of the serums have been found to be potent, but no cure has been of any use in either curing or preventing hog cholera. All serums tested by Purdue university are recom- mended to the state veterinarian, who issues a state permit, under which each serum is sold. At any time, this permit can be revoked through the serum not being up to the standard. ALSIKE CLOVER IS GOOD COVER CROP Well Adapted to Low, Moist Soil —Is Well -Known as Fa- vorite Food for Bees. Alsike clover, unlike our red clover, is well adapted to low, moist soils, also to dried up land. It should not be sown alone. Six pounds of alsike seed and ten pounds of red clover seed sown to the acre will give a large crop of excellent hay, and it larger yield than if either were sown alone Red clover will seldom produce a crop of hay the third year, while alsike will yield good crops from three to five years if the land is in good condition and the season not too dry. Alsike clover is well known as the favorite food for bees. The honey made from alsike blossoms Is said to be of excellent quality. *But its great- Ost value is for pasture. When once firmly rooted it will make a sturdy growth even if the season is hot and the ground dry. Day farmers who have grown thin clover for some years consider it valuable to mix with tneadow grasses, such as foul meadow and red top. Yields Of 3% to 4 tons of hay have been grown to the acre. and excellent fall pasture may be had until late in the season. The second crop is said to cause horses to slobber freely, and on this account it is best not to s,ov alsiks in horse pastures The seed may tut had from the agricultural stores. II is thought best to try this clover— sow one-third alsike and two-thirdt red clover to the acre the comin' sorisg and note result's IS CHILD CROSS, FEVERISH, SICK Look, Mother!

WHEN KIDNEYS ACT BAD TAKE GLASS OF SALTS Eat Less Moat If Kidneys Hurt or You *lave Backache or Bladder Misery —Meat Forms Uric Acid. No man or woman who eats meat regularly can make a mistake by flush- ing the kidneys occasionally, says a well-known authority. Meat f ins uric acid which clogs the kidney pores so they sluggishly filter or strain only part of the waste and poisons from the blood, then you get sick. Nearly all rheumatism, headaches, liver trou- ble, nervousness, constipation, dizzi- ness. sleeplessness, bladder disorders come from sluggish kidneys. The moment you feel a dull ache in the kidneys or your back hurts, or if the urine is cloudy, offensive, full of sediment, irregular of passage or at- tended by a sensation of scalding, get about four ounces of Jad Salts from any reliable pharmacy and take a tablespoonful in a glass of water be- fore breakfast for a few days and your kidneys will then act fine. This fa- mous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with lithia and has been used for genera- tions to flush clogged kidneys and stimulate them to activity, also to neu- tralize the acids in urine so it no longer causes irritation, thus ending bladder disorders.
