When all factors are taken into ac
count, it can easily be seen that a
possible effect of the food on the milk
must be reduced to a very small pro
portion indeed, writes P. McConnell in
Agricultural Gazette, England. It is
of course acknowledged that the
amount of food, and the richness of
the same, influence the quantity of the
milk, and that this influence is imme
diate, and it has been shown that the
nature of the food has a very great
influence on the percentage of cream
which can be taken off milk by the
old flat pan system, or the proportion
of butter which can be made out of a
given quantity of milk, by even the
most modern appliances; but this in
fluence operates actually, without in
fluencing the analysis of the milk it
self. The amount of cream thrown up
on milk ia such a misleading guide
that it has long ago been given up in
the milking tests of the British Dairy
Farmers' Association, and we now de
pend on an analysis alone, while
American experiments have shown
that in the amount of butter which can
be recovered from a given quantity of
milk there may be a variation of as
much as 50 per cent, depending on the
nature of the food given, while all the
while the analyses of two differing
milks may be approximately alike; in
other words, as I have often explained
before, the "risibility" of the cream
and the "churnability" of the same
are largely influenced by the nature of
the food, while the chemical analysis
of the milk is not influenced at all, or
only to a slight degree, or temporarily.
The whole question, to my mind,
narrows itself down to one point; giv
en that the proper average food for a
cow weighing 1,000 pounds is 25
pounds of dry matter, having an albu
minoid ratio of 1:5.5, can I whilst
still maintaining the 25 pounds of total
solids by alternating the albuminoid
ratio also alter the proportion of fat
in the milk? That is to say, if I feed
a cow in the proportion of 1:6, as
against 1:4, do I make a corresponding
difference in the percentage of butter
fat in the milk yielded? I say no. My
opponents say yes. In reply I ask for
evidence that my statement is wrong.
and, hitherto, none has been forthcom
ing. The only experiments carried out
in this country bearing on this partic
ular point that are of any importance,
so far as I know, are those of Mr.
Spier, as detailed in the Transactions
of the Highland and Agricultural So
ciety of Scotland, and they decidedly
bear out my contention. On the other
hand, hundreds, perhaps I may say
thousands, of experiments have been
carried out in America by many agri
cultural colleges and experimental sta
tions, and Professor Henry, in his re
cent work, sums up the results in fa
vor of my contention. The Vernon
experiments, carried out by Mr. Lloyd
some ten years ago, did not bear on
this point at all, and, indeed, were
eaxried out for another purpose alto
gether, but, incidentally, prove my
theory. Further, this theory was enun
ciated by Kuhn, in Germany, more
than five and twenty years ago, while
It is now eight years since I first got
my faith shaken in the old belief, and
had to reconstruct my creed in the
matter. I am open to accept evidence
on the point, when such is forthcom
ing, but all the evidence known to me
on this point of any value bears out
my theory. The point is of great prac
tical importance, because it is known
and acknowledged that the albuminoid
material in the food goes directly to
the production of fat in the milk, and,
as albuminoid material is the dearest
kind of food that we can buy in the
market, if we can reduce the amount
necessary to keep a cow in full bearing
condition, we are reducing the cost of
her feeding; as when we substitute
such cheaper foods as maize meal, mid
dlings and so on.
Some one may suggest that, If an an
lmal getting food in the proportion of
1: is doing well enough, why not re
duce It to 1:10 or more, or, if the ani
mal yields richer milk by getting 1:4,
why not increase it by 1:2. The reply
Is, that when you depart, either up
or down, too far away from the aver
age standard, you introduce a new fac
tor, namely, the health of the animal;
and this, itself, will have a great in
fluence on the quality as well as the
quantity of milk. If the food is ex
cessively rich, or excessively poor, the
digestive organs of the cow will be
upset, and dietetic diseases of various
sorts, such as indigestion, bile, and
even hunger, show themselves, and
thess directly affect the milk yield.
One does not break with the beliefs
of his youth very easily, and I have
been hard to convince, myself, that
the quality of the milk did not directly
depend on the quality of the food; but
when all the experiments that have
actually been tried on the point bear
out the new theory, and when all the
ordinary beliefs of the practical man
ess be explained away under one or
her of the above influences, and
when no experiments are forthcoming
which actually do prove this alleged
Influence on the milk, then I am bound
te coxe to the conclusion that the
qmality of the food, by itself alone, has
little or nothing to do with the qual
ity of the milk.

I do not think it matters In the least
wtet hens are selected from the Dor
klaa far breeding table fowls so lose;
a they are ef good shape and ara in
store condition as to easure their
being healthy and capable of breeding
healthy chickens. It is true enough
that some Dorkings may be picked out-'
in preference "to others It "tip-top"
quality be desired, says a writer in
Farm and Home of England. For ex
ample, if there be a "best breed" of
table fowls in our country it must be
the rose-combed white Dorking. The
quality of the meat cannot be surpass
ed, the color of the flesh is exceedingly
good, the shape of the fowl cannot be
improved upon, and the size is suffi
ciently large without any tendency to
coarseness. The weak point of the
breed is its delicacy of constitution,)
but if this can be overcome by select
ing really robust specimens there can
not be a better bird to matewith the.
Indian Game cock. There are, of
course, hardy white Dorkings and
hardy silver grey or colored Dorkings,
but I should not expect to find them
in exhibition yards. The eggs from
this cross should certainly be good for;
incubator hatching, provided they are
fresh, for no breed is more prolific
than the Indian Game cock when they
are really fertile. Dorkings are cer-.
tainly not adapted for a clay soil, but
the half-bred chickens would be an'
improvement in this respect, and
should answer if reasonable precau-.
tions are taken. I should not consider
the Dorking the best fowl for keeping
in confinement, but there is no reason'
why they should not thrive if a fair
sized run can be guaranteed. I have
known Dorkings to do well under such
circumstances. As to the length of
time strong chickens can be looked for
when the breeding pen has been made
up six months, much depends upon the
composition of the individual pen. For
instance, if the hens are of a non-sic-'
ting breed, and are therefore practical
ly only layers for eight months in the
year, I should expect the chickens to
fall off in constitution as the summer
advances. Supposing, however, the
hens are of a sitting type, the case
would be different. At the conclusion,
of each batch of eggs there would ba
a slight rest, either to remain broody
upon the nest or to rear chickens or,
ducklings, and there cannot be a doubt
that this rest would tend to strengthen
the chicks which might be hatched
from the first batch of egg3. The germs,,
too, would be naturally stronger owing
to the fact that the suspension of lay-'
ing or the temporary removal of the
hens would lessen for a time the de-'
mand upon the services of the male
bird. But when all has been said upon:
this point it cannot be denied that the
best plan of ensuring really strong"
chickens is to take care that the male;
birds should be rested now and again,
and the hens shall be selected so that"
the eggs for sitting purposes shall be
those which are first laid after a pe-
riod of rest. With reference to a cross1
for table purposes between a golden
Wyandotte cock and Langshan nens,'
if the chickens are desired for home
use the cross would answer, for the
birds would be of a good size; if, how
ever, the chicks are to be bred for sale,
I should seek for something less coarse'
than the Wyandotte, say an active Dor-,
king, Houdan, Indian or old Eaglisn
game, or even the Leghorn.
Hot Water for X.lce.
The Messenger says that boiling hot
water is a lice killer about which we
read very little in the poultry papers;
but it does the work very thoroughly.'
and is very cheap. In a poultry house:
where the pests have obtained a foot
hold hot water will greatly assist in
their extermination. The waste water
on wash day can be used for this pur
pose, being returned to the stove after
it has served its end at the wash-tub
and reheated. If the walls, roosts
and nesting boxes are drenched with'
this the larger proportion of the lice
will be destroyed instantly, and those
which "escape will meet their fate in
the coat of whitewash which should
follow within a day or two. If the
nursery coops are turned upside down
and hot water sprinkled over the in
ner surface until it flows into and
through every crevice, not a single
louse will survive the treatment. This
should be done m the forenoon of a
bright day in order that all dampness
may be dissipated before the brood re
turns to it at night. We have nothing
laid up against the lice killer makers,
and have no desire to injure their
business, but everybody cannot buy
these things; and while they are a
convenience, it is just as well to admit
the fact that they are not a necessity.
The lice can be conquered more cheap
ly, but to do this involves the expend
iture of more time and labor.
With dry weather it is essential that
sheep of all kinds should have at hand
a liberal supply of clean water for
drinking purposes, says Farmer and
Stockbreeder. Some think that shee?
do not require water, but this is a
most erroneous notion. Sheep, like
most domesticated animals, require a
certain amount of liquid, and though,
in wet weather, or when on roots, etc.,
they need but very little, they even
then do better with a supply at hand.
On the other hand, when the weather
is dry, and the food containing little
or no moisture, it is imperative that a
supply should be at hand where it can
be used at will, and then no harm can
or will result. But it is necessary to
remind one that if thirsty and parched
sheep are driven to the water, in
either pond or brook, great care musti
be taken that they do not get tool
much; this danger never arises when
the sujply is always open to them, for
they will only take that which theyj
require. An important point, too, 1st
that the water should be fresh and'
sweet, not stagnant or stale, bnt the,
latter is far preferable to none. Thei
trifling cost that may be incurred i
providing the water will be found to
ba far and away paid for by the great-:
er increase in weight of the sheep, if
fattening, aiyi by their general aealti-
