Intoresting t'arta Presented by C. L. Flint
In His Work cm Dairy r.irmina;.
In Galloway and other pastoral dis
tricts where the calves are allowed to
suckle, the people are so much wedded
to their own customs as to argue that
suckling: s much more nutritive to the
calves than any other mode of feeding.
That suckling induces a greater secretion
of saliva, which, by promoting digestion,
accelerates the growth and fattening of
the young animal, cannot be doubted;
but the secretion of that fluid may like
wine be promoted by placing an artificial
teat in the mouth of the calf and giving
it the milk slowly, and at the natural
temperature. In the dairy districts of
Scotland the dairy maid puts one of her
fingers into the mouth of the calf when
it is fed, which serves the purpose of a
teat, and will have nearly the same effect
as the natural teat in inducing the secre
tion of saliva. If that or an artificial
teat of leather be used and the milk
given slowly before it ia cold, the secre
tion of saliva may be promoted to all the
extent that can be necessary.
According to the comparative experi
ments of a German agriculturist, cows
which as calves had been allowed to
suckle their dams from two to four weeks
brought calves which weighed only from
thirty-five to forty-eight pounds, while
others, which as calves had been allowed
to suckle from five to eight weeks,
brought calves weighing sixty to eighty
pounds. It is difficult to see how there
can be so great a difference, if there is
any; but it may be worthy of careful ob
servation and experiment, and as such it
is stated in this connection. The in
creased size of the calf would be due to
the larger size to which the cow would
attain; and if as a calf she were allowed
to run with her dam in the pasture four
or fire months, taking all the milk she
wanted, she would be kept growing on
in a thriving condition. But taking a
calf from the cow at four or even eight
weeks must check its growth to some ex
tent, and thia may be avoided to some
extent by feeding liberally and bringing
up by hand.
TIi.) Cherry for Profit.
In an essay read before a Nebraska
horticultural society, a member who had
pursued cherry culture with profit for
some years made the following remarks:
In planting, we prefer to eet strong
and growing varieties, like the Early and
Late Richmond, twelve to fourteen feet
apart in the row, and the rows sixteen
feet apart. Trees of a more dwarf habit,
like the English Morello, Ostheim, and
many of the Russian varieties, we think
need less room- Some of the Russian
cherries need no more than ten feet in the
row, and the rows twelve to fourteen feet
apart. We regard it as important that
the trees should be headed within eight
een inches or two feet from the ground;
that the heads should always be kept
low, the trunks completely shaded;
ana we believe it to be of advan
tage to have tlie heavy laden branches
trailing to the ground, as may be seen in
niauy of our trees. The expense of pick
ing the fruit is much lessened in this
way, and we believe that the trees are
healtl tier and longer lived. There is a
greater amount of twigs, or bearing sur
lace, on the tree; and where the trees in
the row are mulched, and the space be
tween the rows kept pulverized with a
disk pulverizer, or other suitable tools,
we believe the result will be found very
satisfactory and cherry growing profita
ble. We plant about 227 trees per acre.
Do not delay the setting of trees until
late in the spring. Set before the buds
have opened, and shorten in at top, so
as to make the trees grow low and
. English Red Cap Fash.
Just now attention is being called by
the various poultry journals to the Eng
lish Red Cap breed of fowls, shown in
the accompanying illustration, a reprint
from Southern Fancier. The birds rep
resented are Buffalo Boy and Rosalie,
prize winners at the late international
fair at Buffalo, N. Y.
The Red Caps are an old English breed
of many years. They have now been
before the American public about four
years; have never enjoyed a decided
'boom," but are gradually winning
their way into the confidence of the
American breeder. Ohio Poultry Jour
nal describes them as follows:
"The distinguishing feature of the
English Red Cap as suggested is the
rose comb, which should be of good me
dium size, full of fancy work or spikes,
standing perfectly straight on the head,
with long straight spike behind. Of
course the comb of the cock should be
much larger than that of the hen. The
neck hackle of the cock should be rich
