The Care Of Cream
Cream and milk, as a human as
a human food, are valued largely
according to their degree of clean
liness and palatability. Just as
soon as cream or milk becomes
abnormal in flavor or odor, it loses
part of its commercial value. This
deterioration is caused by small
living plants or cells, called germs
many of which are absolutely harm
less in every respect so far the
human body is concerned, but,
when allowed to develop in cream,
may cause bad odors and flavors.
Hence the importance of using
such methods that will cause as
little germ life to develop in the
cream as possible.
Most germ life grows best at
body temperature, although many
kinds of germs thrive at tempera
ture 70 F. Furthermore, as a rule
those germs that grow at medium
temperature not only do not devel
op as rapidly but usually are not
so injurious. The lower the tem
perature, the fewer germs that
will develop during a given time.
By increasing the amount of fat
in the cream, the amount of water
is reduced, which also increases
the keeping power of the cream.
Summed up in brief the import
ant points to remember are:
1. Clean cows and milkers.
2. Clean utensils.
3. Separate immediately after'
4. Cool the cream by placing it
in a tub or barrel of water, or, if
canvenient, an ice box.
5. S'ir the cream at least every
6 or 8 hours.
6. Do not mix fresh and old'
7. Alwivs keen the cream in a
clran, well-ventilated room free t
from odo.: of any kind.
8. Market the cream as often I
as is convenient in order to have l
it reach the market in good condi

Explanation Of Corn Score
1. Uniformity of exhibit means
that the ears must be similar in
shape, size, and general appearance
If the ears have the same charac
ters they are given a perfect score,
whether these characters are good
or bad. The value of the charac
ters is scored in other headings.
2. Shape of ear. The shape
should be that which characterizes
the variety. In general,the shappe
should be almost cylindrical, slight
ly tapering at the tip; rows should
3. Length of ear. Measure the
length of ear from the extreme tip
to the extreme butt. The excess
and deficiency variations from the
standards are added and for every
inch thus obtained a cut of one
point is made.
4. Circumference of ear is mea
sured one-third of the distance
from the butt to the tip. The ex
cess and deficiency variations from
the standards are added, and for
every inch thus obtained a cut of
one-half point is made.
5. Tips of ears. The kerneis
should extend completely over the
end of the cob and be of the same
size, shape indentation, and depth
as in the center of the ear.
6. Butts of ears. This part
should be well rounded and oval,
with medium size shank scar.
Rows of kernels should be straight
at time of vanishing.
7. Kernel uniformity. Remove
two kernels from near the center
of each ear and lay germ side up
with the chit end toward you. ToI
be perfect the kernels should be
similar in every respect. Grad
ing here, as in uniformity of ex
hibit, ought not to be too severe.

ly different type from the prevail
ing ones should be scored one-half

The Feeding Of Hogs.
(Continued from last week)
The small. weak bones so com
monly seen in many herds of swine
in Louisiana are very largely due
to a lack of calcium. This can be
supplied at a very low cost in the
form of finely ground raw rock c
phosphate, finely ground oyster
shells or bones, or by simply keep
ing a supply of air-slaked lime in
the drinking water. The raw
rock phosphate, oyster shells and
bones contain, not only an ample t
supply of calcium but they contain a
as well a supply of phosphorus and °
in the proportions needed.
The animal uses energy for two a
general purpose, namely, for heat c
production to keep the body tem
perature up to normal and for work r
both internal (digestion of food,g
circulation of blood, etc.), and ex
ternal as for instance in moving a
the body. If more energy-produc
ing ood is fed than is necessary,
the animal will usually fatten, and
this store of fat will be used up
during periods when there is a
lack of energy-producing food or
when in case of the brood sow c
nursing her young, it is impossi
ble for her to consume enough
food to make good the tremendous
drain on her system. There are
two classes of food which are used c
to supply energy to the animal body,
and these are carbohydrates and a
fats. Common examples of car
bohydrates are starch and sugar,
while every one is familiar with
such fats or oils as cotton-seed oil, I
olive oil, lard, tallow, butter fat,
etc. Both carbohydrates and fats
contain the same chemical elements
though in different proportions,
andPtioth perform the same uses
to the animal. The elements
present are carbon, hydrogen and
oxygen. As these goods contain
no nitrogen, they cannot form
muscles of any of the internal or
gans. They simply furnish the
power to operate the "machine";
and the machine is composed of
protein and mineral matter. It
is as impossible to develop the
muscular and bony framework of a
pig without protein and mineral
matter as it is to build a steam
engine without lron.---E. L. Jord

When Baby Has the Croup.
When a mother is awakened from
sound sleep to find her child who has
gone to bed apparently is the best of
health struggling for breath, she is na
turally alarmed. Yet Ui she can keep
her presence of mind and give Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy every tea minutes
until vomiting is produced, quick relief
will follow and the child will drop to
sleep to awaken in the morning as well
as ever. This remedy has been in uee
for many years with uniform success.

Fertilizing Corn Land.
For the past several years the
L. S. U. Experiment Station has
e been carrying on a test to compare
the effect of the use of commercial
fertilizer in connection with a
clover crop and light application
r of stable manure plowed under in
the spring with commercial ferti
lizer alone on the yield of corn.
The plots are located on sandy
bluff soil that is about is about on
the average with this class of soil
around Baton Rouge. The corn
on these plots has just been harvest
ed and, as the past season was
about on the average for a corn
crop in this section, the results of
this year will give a good compa
rison between the two methods of
The yield of corn where clover
and stable manure were plowed
under before applying commercial
fertilizer was 66.1 bushels per acre
The yield of corn on the plot where
commercial fertilizer alone was
used was 17.1 bushels per acre.
ri Leaving off the difference in the
cost of harvesting the corn, and
also the cost of the commercial
fertilizer as the same amount was
applied to both plots, and charg
ing $4.00 per acre for the cost of
clover seed and planting, $4.00
for the cost of applying manure,
and putting the price of corn at
- 50c per bushel there is not only a
profit of $16.30 per acre in favor
of the clover crop and stable ma
nure with commercial fertilizer,
but the land is in a much better
