'IMPORTANCE OF MILK HOUSE
tDifficult to Properly Care for Dairy
Products in Summer Without
During the hot weather it is almost
Smpossible to care for dairy products
on the farm without a suitable milk
'house. O. E. Reed of the Kansas Ag
ricultural college offers the following:
Milk must be produced under sani
tary conditions, and to do this the milk
?house shauld be either separate from
:the dairy barn or arranged in such a
,way that odors from the barn do not
get to it.
A 10 by 12-foot milk house is a good
;size for the average farm. It should
be built with a eminent floor and have
ia drain at the center to carry away
?the waste. The equipment should con
sist of a refrigerating tank, 30 by 36
linches, inside measure. This will ac
'commodate four milk cans. There
;?hould also be a cooler, aerator, wash

the tank. The water circulates around
""the cans and flows out at one side
through an overlow pipe. This over
flow pipe leads i:ito a watering trough
and the water is used for watering the
stock Instead of being wasted.
ARE YOUR COWS EFFICIENT?
Milk Scales and Eabcock Tester Es
sential in Conducting Successful
Putting the efficiency test to cows
with the milk scales and the Bab
cock tester.is one of the essentials
of conducting a successful ?airy. When
feed is high in price a fainer cannot
afford to have boarders in his dairy
barn who eat up more in feed than
-their milk yield is worth. The Bab
cock test will s'iow these delinquent
.cows in their true light, and the milk
scales will put the clincher on the
.argument. Testing cows will give
some farmers a big surprise. Some

WHITEWASH FOR THE TREES
! Excellent Protection Afforded to Bark
From Sunburn and Eorers
Keeps Rabbits Away.
Whitewash is an excellent proteo
? tion to the bark from both sunburn
j and borers. _ It is particularly valu
I able for young trees, as after trees
j reach a good size the branches gen
j erally become sufficiently large and
i the foliage sufficiently thick to shade
j the bark and prevent the injury that ?
j the hot sun would otherwise do.
The best time to apply the white
j wash is in the early spring, or before
i the sun has become too hot and yet at
I a time when the danger of heavy rains
j washing off the lime is passed. It is
i not well to delay too long or the sun
j burn may occur in clear weather be
I tween rains.
There are dozens of whitewash reci
I pes, all with merit, some more dur
! able than others, and a durable white
j wash is generally to be desired. For
'fruit trees a whitewash can be made
\ by the addition of tallow, which i&

rabbits. Such a wash can be made
with 30 pounds of lime, 4 pounds of
tallow and 5 pounds of salt. The salt
is dissolved in the water used in
slaking the lime and the tallow added
to the hot mixture, which Is thinned
to the desired consistency before using.
Spoiled fat or grease of any kind
can be substituted for the tallow and
the amount can be increased if de
sired. If there is danger of attract

FRIENDS OF PLANT GROWERS
"Lady-Bugs" Feed Upon Plant-Lice, |
Scale insects and Other Pests
Entitled to Protection.
; (By W. E. BRETTON.)
The beetles commonly known as
lady beetles, "ladybirds," "lady-bugs"
or plant-louse beetles, are among the
very best friends of the farmer or
plant grower, because they f?ed in
both larval and adult stages upon
plant-lice, scale-insects, and the small
larvae and eggs of other and larger
noxious insects. Dr. S. A. Forbes ex
amined the stomach contents of 391
specimens, and found that one-fourth j
of their food was composed of plant
lice; though they ate some vegetable]
food, such as pollen and spores of
fungi, a greater portion of their food)
consisted of Insects.
Though many persons are more or
less familiar with lady-bugs, some are
not acquainted with their habits or
life histories, and do not, therefore,

recognize them as friends. Thus many
of these helpful little insects are de
stroyed, when they should be carefully
One of the most conspicuous ex
amples in history of controlling a pest
by means of lady-beetles occurred in
California some twenty-five years ago.
An Australian insect known as the
fluted or cottony cushion scale ap
peared in California on orange trees
and spread so rapidly over the state
that the extensive orange growing in
dustry was threatened. By request,
Mr. Albert Koebele was appointed
agent of the United States to attend
the Melbourne exposition, and while
in Australia paid special attention to
searching for the insect enemies of
the fluted scale. A lady beetle was
found feeding upon the scale and
specimens -were collected, and five
separate lots (altogether about 500
specimens) were brought from Aus
tralia to California and placed upon
the scale-infested trees. The lady
beetles multiplied and their progeny
were soon transported to each orange
growing section. In a few years the
cottony cushion scale had been
brought under complete control by the
Australian lady-beetle; it has never
since done much damage on the Pa
cific coast, and the orange industry
In a less striking manner and on a
smaller scale our native lady-beetles
are continually demonstrating their
ability to clean np shrubs, trees and
even orchards which were severely at
tacked by plant lice. There are about
250 different kinds of lady-beetles in
