Thoroughly Up-to-Date In
A BRIEF DESCRIPTION
May Prove Interesting to
We saw a dairy farm recently tuat
In many respects Is a model of its
kind, and we give a brief description
nf It, thinking It may piove of interest
to our readers. The proprietor of the
farm began In a small way. some fif
teen years ago and secured a few tlior
oughlucd Jersey row.s, from which by
arefnl testing and selecting he was
able to build up a herd of dairy cows
nossesslng n moie than ordinary ca
pacity for milk and cream production.
This process of selecting covered a pe
riod of years. Today his herd num
bers a hundred animals thoroughbred
and legistered or eligible to registry.
During the past year from sixty cows,
which Include the youngest heifers In
milk, he has received n return of $li!0
per head, Everything about the farm
as regards accommodation nnd equip
ment Is thoroughly up to date. The
dairy bain. Just enlarged and com
pleted, Is provided with cement lloors
and gutteis, while .swing stanchions
are provided, giving the animals the
greatest amount of freedom and com
fort consistent with the space allowed
thein. A silo having a capacity of 2."0
tons of ensilage provides the animals
with a supply of the most choice fodder
during t lie winter months, while nn
abundance of gieen corn Is provided
to supplement the blue grass pasture
during the mouths of July nnd August,
when the feed runs short. An Icehouse
ou the farm provides the necessary fa
cilities for a proper cooling of the inllk.
Located at a distance of ten miles from
a town of 10.000. ho finds there n rendy
market for his milk and cream, the
supply being shipped each morning by
express and distributed by his own
milk wagons. No attempt Is made In
the management of this dairy to manu
facture butter, as a ready market Is
found at good prices for the rich milk
product. Instead of following the plan
common with so many dairymen of
furnishing a low ginde of milk to his
customers nt a low price, It has been
bis' constant aim to furnish the finest
and richest product possible, nnd Ids
efforts along this line have been amply
repaid by the additional price received.
So successful has this man been nnd
so well appointed and up to date are
his fixtures and general dairy equip
ment that men come from all over the
state to Inspect his dairy farm. His
success Id not Impossible for others
who will adopt the same methods.
PLUCK VEItSUS LUCK.
A young man living near the home of
the writer cnlled upon us the other day.
On lenvlng wo wished him the custom
ary good luck In his future operations.
Ilia pleasant reply that he didn't be
lieve In luck Is significant, his owu case
well Illustrating the view he holds.
He came to the neighborhood where he
now lives some five years ago with ?7
In his pocket and a constitution none
too lobust as the result of close confine
ment at his trade. He hired oqt to up
to date farmers and learned their wnys.
Difference of conditions made it neces
sary for him to relearu practically all
he knew about methods of agriculture,
Today he is In good health and Is work
ing a rented farm of 200 acics. He has
stock, grain and machinery now on
hand from which lie could realize about
$100, which, taking everything Into
consideration, is a very cieditable
showing. AVevpredlct that with no te
verses the youtuf-wan will own a fine
farm of his own. free, from Incum

Is not mentioned because It Is Impos

The man vio sells a good farm aud
buys a grocery store takes au easy
way of committing financial suicide.
Do you select the book for Its title,
the fruit for Its size, or buy the cow for
Its quantity of milk? If so, you'll be a

deeper than that.
Ileet sugnr enterprises, like matrimo

calm deliberation nnd reilectlou, suc

by much pains and self denial us well

put into me uome garden tins spring,
just take a mental inventory of the
family's likes and dislikes. Don't spend
time and space lu puttlug lu what they
don't care for, but do plan for plenty
of the vegetables which are liked.

Some complain that they cannot
drink milk without being "distress
ed by it." The most common rea
son why milk is not well borne is
"due to the fact that people drink it
too quickly. If a glasii of it is swal-
lowed hastily it enters into the stom-
Tacit and then forms in one solid,
curdled ma3s, diilictilt ol digestion,
If, on the other hand, the same
quantity is sipped and three min
utes at'least are occupied in drink
ing it, then on reaching the Btom
ach it is so divided that when coag
ulated, as it must be by the gastric
juice while digestion is going on,
instead of being in ohc hard, con
densed mass, upon the outside of
which only the digestive fluids can
act, it is more in the form of a
sponge, and in' and out of the entire
bulk the gastric juice can play free
ly and perform its function.

When replacing the lost buttons of
earments It Is very Important that tho
new buttons should be of the same alzo
as the old ones. Careless menders pay
no attention to this trifling detail, and
the consequence Is that buttons that
are too small will noj remain fastened,
and those which are too large tear the
buttonholes. A-tfiitton bo for storing
reserve burtons should find n place In
every mending basket. In this recep
tacle should be put all buttons -vdilch
jinve been ripped on old garments as
well as n.ny complete set of buttons
there may be. Housekeepers who pick
up and put away In Its allotted placo
every button which falls Into their'
hands may save themselves many pur

Here is an excellent method of re
moving grease spots from a waxed
floor: Tour spirits of turpentine on the
spot and give It time to soak Into the

grease. Brush off and polish the place
anew with wax.
