Alfalfa vs. Clover.
Alfalfa is ready for cutting a full
month before red clover. There is a
strong advantage in dairy farming,
since green crops are needed at the
earliest possible moment in the spring.
After cutting, alfafa springs into
growth more promptly than clover
and a second crop is produced with
in six to eight weeks. Clover lasts
two years and alfalfa ten to thirty
years. In New Jersey the average
yield of green forage an acre was
3G.540 pounds for alfalfa and 14,000
pounds for red clover. The weights
qi dry hay were S258 pounds and 4
0S8 pounds, and of prot?ine, 2214
pounds and GIB pounds an acre, re
spectively. In the same state alfalfa
was found to contain 1S09 pounds of
dry matter and 2G5 pounds of prot?ine
a ton, as compared with 1694 pounds
and 246 pounds for clover. In other
words, alfalfa not only yields two and
one-half times as much as red clover,
but its feeding value is much greater

Fitting the Collar of Horses.
Sore shoulders on horses are often
caused by poorly fitting collars and a
lack of proper treatment of the neck
and shoulders during and after work
hours. Dr. Currier in his Horse Sense
gives some good ideas in reference to
fitting the collar for horses. He says:
"The horse collar is made over a
form an*1 suits the taste of the maker,
I and while thoroughly wet. Then why
nd* make the collar fit the form of the
neck that is to wear it? To do this,
select a collar tha* will fit as nearly
as possible the hor? ? it is intended for.
On an evening thoroughly wet cloths
enough to wrap them in that way,
leaving the collar in that condition
all night. It need not be a new one,
an old one may be treated the same
way. In the morning, and while wet
and soft, put the collar on the horse,
adjust it properly, also the hames and
hame tugs, and work the horse mod
erately through the day, when the
collar will be dry and adjusted ex
actly to the form of the neck of the
horse whose collar it must be right
.along. If by getting fatter or leaner
the shape of the neck is changed, a
re-shaping of the collar may be ad
visable, which can be done as in the
Each horse should have his own col
lar every day. Our readers should not
forget this point. If attended to in
the start and then looked after there
is little danger of sore shoulders.
Keep the collar clean as well as the
neck and shoulders. It is advisable
to remove the harness and collars dur
ing the mid-day meal. At night bathe
the neck md shoulders with salt and
water and wipe dry. When a period
of rest is taken during the working
hours, push the collar forward and al

Hov/ I Ventilated My Dalry.
Some years ago when I got posses
sion of the farm I found a dairy house
built four feet deep and eight feet
square with brick floor, which I
thought would be a good place for
It was cleaned out nicely and the
milk was placed in it, but with all my
care the milk would soon be clabber,
.and was often sour by dinner time, '
while my farmer's share of the milk
would be sweet all day iu a safe which
was kept under a shady tree, although
the thermometer showed the dairy
was several degrees cooler.
I concluded the trouble was owing
to want of ventilation in the pit to rid
it of any acid vapor which must he
the cause of the change mentioned,
the acid neutralizing the soda or al
kali that holds the casein in solution.
To get rid of the acid vapor was the
question to solve, as there was no
ventilation around the milk. Because
of the mobile nature of air I knew
the slightest variation of temperature
would create a circulation. To get
this I built alongside of the old dairy
a new one, with two four-inch walls
about six inches apart giving a space
around the building leaving an open
outlet into the brick trough connect
ing the two, built on the floor, the out
let being half a brick space every few
inches along the bottom of the trough.
A thermometer indicated that the air
was two degrees cooler than the air
in the trough, which difference kept
up the circulation night and day, dis
placing the air in the trough. During
my residence on the farm till about
the first of October, we had no trouble
with milk turning to clabber, and oft
en missed the cottage cheese for sup

it, even for breakfast, but plenty of
Visiting the farm in November I
found the milk all in my kitchen. On
speaking to my overseer's wife about
it, she informed me she had to move
it, as it was all ice in the morning.
I thought it was impossible, as we
had no freezing weather. So I had the
night's milk put in the dairy with the
thermometer at about twenty-eight de
grees. To my surprise the milk was
all ice in the morning and the secret
was out. The cold air circulating
around the can soon extracted all the
heat and the iced milk was the result,
while In the kitchen, with the ther

the kitchen not being used in the
winter, but kept ..closed. For twenty
years we had ^?^hje^ojn^

At the present time we have no
trouble winter or summer, as the
water from an artesianxwell, temper
ature fifty-eight degrees flows through
the dairy and in the drain pipe to

keeps his milk, melons and cold meat,
in good order without ice. The well
flows thousands of gallons in the
twenty-four hours, discharging the
water two feet above the surface. The
layer of sand from which the water
comes is 350 feet from the surface.

OUR AGRICUTURAL PROGRESS.
The Large Thing We have Accom
plished in Fifty Years.
The farm gardens, "market gar
dens," and "truck gardens" of today
are the producers of a multitude of
"miscellaneous vegetables" almost un
known fifty years ago. In the cen
sus of 1890 the large increase in gar
den products was recognized, and a
systematic count of their bulk and
value was made. It is possible,
therefore, to make a ten-year compari
son of the increase of such products,
and this records the remarkable in
creases of from 190 percent to 400 per
cent in the five several divisions of
the country. The North Atlantic
States had a well-developed industry
in "garden products", before 1890,
which accounts for its relatively low
increase. However, 190 percent in ten
years, while the population increased
only a trifle over 20 percent, is amaz
Could our great-granddaddies, who
thought tomatoes poisonous and our
great-grandmothers, who grew them
as oranmental plants in window-pots,
under the attractive name of "love
apples," come back and realize that
over thirty million bushels of the pret
ty poisonous vegetables are eaten as a
common and healthful food, they
would surely realize that time works
wonderful changes. Another interest
ing statement is that the lettuce crop
of the south has so increased that
in the spring of this year North Caro
lina sent twenty carloads of that vege
table north in a single day.

Today it is a common edible, occupy

ric are equally beautiful in finish and
coloring, and, being more durable,
come from the laundry as nice as

styles and fabrics, one should send to
a linen house for a catalogue and

up-to-date fabrics and finishes.
The Milk Supply.
A distinguished Danish scientist,
In a recent exhaustive discussion of
a pure milk supply, insists that the
milk supply of a modern city is
most, if not quite, as important a fac
tor as the water supply, and argues
that the ratio of r-^aths among in
fants has been in uirect proportion
to the ease or difficulty with which
a supply of fresh* milk is obtainable.
He presents many interesting facts
in connection with the abuse of milk.
Adulteration of mille is prevented as
far as possible, but the fact that so
much milk is required, and that it is
transported over considerable dis
tances, makes regulation difficult. He
also furnishes the interesting informa
tion that, from contagious diseases
mainly spread by milk, the well-to-do
suffer most, since they are the great
est consumers of milk. ?Consumers
who get their milk day by day from
rightly conducted dairies are practi
cally proof against contagion. Flies
are the real carriers of contagion,
and from contact with these, milk
should always be carefully protected.
