Anyone who will knowingly sell milk

nothing short of crime. To sell filthy
milk or butter is scarcely less repre

when fed in moderate amounts. Good
pasture Is an essential after four to
six months of age, and if the calf is
turned out for only a few hours each
day at first, scours will be avoided.
The trouble with a great many poul

There Is some difference in the cost

The management of the calf during
the first year has much to do with its
later usefulness. Plenty of water and
salt should be qiven in clean vessels.
Avoid sudden changes of diet and prac

If you do not cultivate soon after a
rain has hardened the surface your
task will bo ever so much more diffi
cult. The tendency of a hard baked
soil under cultivation is to break up
into clods, especially if it has not been
well worked previously. This does not
prcduco the necessary mulch but rath
er tends to dry out the soil further,
and, in fact, is frequently worse than
no cultivation at all.

Only twenty-one prisons In fifteen

only S00 patients. In three-fourths of

skin and hair may be preserved, purl
