Treatment of Milk Cows.
Editors Democrat:! notice from time
to time tome very valuable notes oo cow
treatment. I observe the cow to be the
most domestio of all animals. If you no
tice, the Milk cow will not eat a dirty, wet
bask, or clover green or dry near any
ezorement ol any kind, or drink water
that poultry or hogs wallow in; if they
do, the batter and milk will taste of it.
To make good milk and batter in sum
mer, give some bask and bran, cr other
dry food, together with good pastare,
plenty of pare water. In winter give a
lazitive of turnips and beets, or pumpkins,
together with dry provender. Milk at
regular hoars never neglect one time
milk last bat gently, going around -all
four teats evenly till clean milked, and
yoa will not have any tumor in the udder.
Let your cowl stand out in hot weather
a well ventilated stall in cold weather,
and yoa will not need cattle powders nor
Jerseys to make gilt-edge butter.
Cube tor Throat and Lung Dis
sasks. Take one quart of strained honey,
stew it gently fifteen minutes; add two or
three ounces of clean grated horse-radish,
stew five minutes, stir well to keep from
burning.. Pat away in earthen vessels.

Early Crops for Green Feed.
The time is rapidly approsching for the
itching of crops for early green teed. So
ittle attention is paid to this most valua
ble assistant to the farmer in our State
that we wish to put forth at least one
honest effort to change the custom in this
respect. Too many are depending wholly
upon the Western crop of hay lor feed
daring the spring and early summer,
while they might, with little labor aod
less expense, furnish themselves all they
need for this purpose. And so long as
oar feed houses and barns, as well as our
smoke-hoases, are in the West, we need
not expect times to get much better, nor
money matters to be much easier.
And now is the time to begin to turn
things to account. The crops are "laid
by" and we are all at leisure. Unless we
avail ourselves of this opportunity, we
shall lose much. Our fodder crops will
soon need attention, and then the tobacco,
cotton, rice, fco., will rise up and cry
aloud to us for some considerable part of
our attention, and we shall have lost the
Only a few acres will be necessary to
famish sufficient "stuff" to feed a good
number of horses and cattle during that
most trying season of the year the
spring if the proper attention is given
these acre. They should be highly ina
nared, thoroughly ploughed and pul
verized with a good harrow, and then, as
soon an the proper time comes, sowed
thick with good rye. And this should be
done early enough to give the young
grain ample time to spring up, take good
root and begin to grow before the first
heavy frost or freeze. By this means a
good protection is furnished to prevent
the cold from killing it out.
Another good coat of manure and lime,
or lime-phosphate, during the latter part
of the winter will only tend to make the
crop more valuable and give the better
assurance of a much earlier cutting.
As soon as the rye begins to joint in the
spring, we should begin to cut and use it
as needed. And the most economical
way of doing this is with a reap hook.
Of course this would prove rather tedious
upon large farms where large quantities
of rye are sowed. By the time the crop
is cat over once, the second crop will be
almost or quite ready tor use. The
writer has cut as many as three excellent
crops from the same land in one spring,
and then had the last one oft early enough
for a crop of another kind.
No one, who has not made the experi
ment, can at all appreciate the wonderful
importance of this early feed crop. In
fact, yoa will be astonished if you will
give it a thorough trial. We wish to see
more of our farmers try this experiment.
Bat we would give this note of warning,
yoa mast not wait until the rye is folly
headed, or you will get only one crop.
Yoa should begin early enough to have
oat nearly over the first time before the
grain is folly headed. Another sugges
tion: Too need not expect much of a
aeoond and third crop unless the land is
well manured. Raleigh Proqre$aive Jbar
,tner. Keeping Bogs.
That by giving swine a variety of
wholesome food, an abundance of pure
water, comfortable, clean shelters and
quarters, and keeping as near to nature's
treatment as the conditions of domestica
tion will permit, we may nearly or alto
gether prevent . the appearance of swine
cholera, is supported by bo much evidence
that it cannot be denied with reason. My
father indulged in the expensive luxury of
frequent outbreaks of cholera among his
awine for years; then, becoming convinced
that rational, careful treatment of the
animals would prevent this dWeaee, be
stopped histearch for a remedy and gave
all hit attention to sanitation and hygiene
in the awine lot. That was almost twenty
years ago, and there has been but one
outbreak of disease among his swine since,
and that only carried off five or six pigs.
He has always been known as an extensive
grower of the best bogs. He has raised
nothing but pare bred swine for a quarter
'of a century at least; hence he has further
demonstrated that pure-bred swine may
be protected from the disease. There is
no-reason why disease should prevail
among swine more than other animals,
except that swine are kept under condi
tions -which are very unfavorable to
health.' Swine plague is produced by a
bacterium, it is true, but other diseases
produced by bacteria are quite oommon,
and it is well known that general weak
ness favors these diseases, while a vigor
ous body is more than a match for bac
teria. No remedy for the genuine swine
plague has. been discovered; but that it
may be almost, if not quite, prevented, has
been demonstrated by many swine raisers,
and the measures of prevention are those
which make swine. raising all the more
profitable, aside from "the .prevention of
disease. Southern Cultivator.
t3 A bottle of carbolic acids should
be kept in every farm house,, not merely
as a disinfectant, : but as a , wash for
wounds and sores. For any purpose it
should b dilated with water., Its power
to destroy fug gas growths makes car
bolic acids invaluable in pruning orchards
of pear, plum or peach, where blight or
other disease is suspected. The pruning
shears should be frequently dipped in car
bolio acid water.
No crop makes better returns for labor
bestowed than turnips. The seed may be
sowed any time throughout August. - For
turnips alone the preparation of the ground
is simple. It needs good plowing and
narrowing if in fair heart; but a dressing
of 400 lbs of bone dust or 250 lbs super
phosphate to the acre will almost 'insure
a good crop. In sowing turnips broad
cast the greatest care mast be taken to
have them thin enough. - A pound of seed
to the acre is all that should be sowed,
and this should be divided, the whole
piece being sowed twice at right angles.
Sowed in drills, turnips must be thinned.
Much rank manure gives a strong bad
flavor. Turnips ought never to have the
first chance at a dressing of yard or stable
manure, bat to come in as a second crop.
Some Timely Advice. '
We will not mislead and if we do yoa
no good we will do yoa no harm. Your
orops are laid by. Pat your plows, hoes,
shovels, gear, bridles and line all in a
house and lock them up. Put carts,
wagons and everything not locked up in
the bouse under a shelter from the rains
aod sun. This done, begin at once to
make manure for the next crop and to
prepare to sow wheat, oats and rye. Rye
and oats ought to be sown from the first
to the 25th day of September, so that yoa
can graze daring the winter and early
spring, and if they should get too large
this fall yoa can graze down at any time.
Wheat ought to be sown from the 25th
day of September to the 25th day of Octo
ber. But you can make good wheat
planted later. Be sure and sow all small
grain and orchard grass and clover early
enough to take root before cold weather
so that tbey can stand the winter. Sow
fifteen pounds of clover seed to the aore,
sow three bushels of orchard grass. Don't
put less than two bushels of oats to the
acre, one bushel and a half of wheat, three
pecks of rye, and if for grazing one bushel
is better. You can graze the rye all win
ter and cut next spring. And if you de
sire you can graze the oats also. And
now is the time to clean out all your
ditches, pile up all your hedge-rows and
ditch banks, and then go to the woods and
swamp and pile op yonr wood mould and
muck for compost. It will be twica as
good piled now, as it will be piled next
winter and spring. This is our advice.
You have one month now to work, go at
it and stay away from town. Scotland
When does a Heifer become a Cow?
At one of the meetings of the O ran ye
County Agricultural Societies last spring,
Maj. Alvord of Houghton Farm, asked
the question "when does a heifVr cease to
be a heifer and become a cow." The
question awakened a laughable debate,
but no conclusion t-eemed to be reached.
The American Dairyman has tackled the
question and comes to this conclusion :
The logical answer to thn question
would seem to be the day on which she
drops her first calf, but such is not the
common practice. In most dairies she is
looked upon as a heifer until she drops
her third calf. To make it more intelli
gible, however, she is usually called a
"heifer iu milk," and this we find to be
the case with the Herd Book of the island
of Jersey, where she is thus called until
she has her third calf. The idea in mak
ing her retain the name of heifer after she
has really become a cow seems to be for
the purpose of excusing her usually small
performance at the pail. For this reason
the dairyman commonly says he has so
many cows and heifers in his herd, and in
estimating the yield of the herd he calls
two heifers equal to one cow, though
they are often better than some cows in

It Saved My Life"
I a common expression, often, heard
from those who have realized, by per
sonal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. I cannot say enough
in praise of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, be
lieving as I do that, but for its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles. E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ugo I had a severe"
ITdiiorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
t'V a distressing Cough, which deprived
:.eof sleep and rest. I had used vari
. cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A. friend ad- ;
v i.siil me to try : ,
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.,
I so, and am happy to say that it
4:r!jed me at once. IJy continued use
tlii medicine cured my cough, and, I
inn satisfied, saved my life. Mrs. E. ,
t.'iiburn, 18 Second St., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
