Northwestern Farmer and Breeder.
A dairyman who concluded that ho
would find out just how profitable
each one of his cows was, weighed
the milk seperately for four months,
and found that his income ranged
irom fz.4t per montn to sjw.'.w per
month for individual cows, the milk
beiug sold at $1.0!) per hundred
pounds. This enabled him to "weed
out" to some advantage. This only
demonstrates the condition of nearly
every dairy herd. There are always
some poor cows, and most always
some very good ones: but just how
poor or how good in dollars and
cents, is what few dairyman can tell.
The only way to find out is by
weighing and testing the milk from
each cow. Then if you know what
the food costs per cow, and will com
pare this with the returns made, you
are in a fair way to become n success

During the siege of Gibraltar its
governor, General Elliot, was one
day making a tourof inspection, when
he came upon a German soldier who,
though standing at his post, neither
presented arms nor even held his
musket, "Do you know me, senti
nel?" Inquired the general, "Why
do you neglect your duty?"
"I know you well, general, and
my duty also," was the reply; "but
within the last few minutes two of
the fingers of my right hand have
been 6hot off, and I am unable to
hold my musket."
"Why don't you go andhave them
"Because in Germany a man is for
bidden to quit his post until he is re
lieved by another."
The general instantly dismounted.
"Now, my friend," 6aid he, "give
me your musket, and I will relieve
you. Go and have your wounds
The soldier obeyed, but went first
to the nearest guard-house, where he
reported that the general was stand
ing on duty at his place. The man's
injury unfitted him for active service,
but the story of his stolid courage
soon readied England, and he was

The Virtues ot Borax.
The excellent washerwomen in
Holland and Belgium, who "get up"
their linen so beautifully white, use
refined borax as a washing powder
instead of soda, in the proportion of
one large handful of powder to about
ten gallons of boiling water. They
save in soap nearly one-half. All the
large establishments adopt the same
mode. For laces, cambrics, etc., an
extra quantity of the powder is used;
for crinolines, requiring to be made
stiff, a strong solution is necessary
Borax, being a neutral salt, does not
in the slightest degree injure the tex
ture of the linen. Its effect is to sof
ten the hardest water, and therefore,
it should be kept on every toilet
table. To the taste it is rather sweet;
it is used for cleaning the hair, and is
an excellent dentrifice, and in hot
countries is used in combination
with tartaric acid and bicarbonate of
soda as a cooling beverage.
