Defects of Conformation ot the Horse as
Shown In a Chart by "Medical Clas
sics" - A Good Plan for it Cheap Cattle.
The majority of defects in the horse's
conformation are only relative defects,
with regard to the uses to which the ani
mal may lie put. Thus, a lar;e heavy
head, short thick neck, short upright
shoulders and a double drooping croup
DEFECTS OF CONFORMATION.
are defects in a saddle horse, which
should possess precise! opposite quali
ties: they are, on the contrary, favorable
in a heavy draught horse. A forehand
much lower than the hind quarters is a
good conformation for a race horse on a
flat course, hut very bad in a roadster.
( Vrtain conformations are este. tned good
according to taste or the fashion. Thus
the Roman nose (8) was very much ad
mired during the reigns of Louis XIV
and Lxniis XV, but has not been so since;
the straight face, and even that which is
a little hollow, fa now preferred. There
are, neverthel.-ss. defects which remain
sn um lei all circumstances: such as long,
wide apart or drooping ear-, (hog ears,
',: small eyes; Hat, narrow sides; narrow
chest; long, badly attached loins (V2):
tucked Bp belly (15); rat tail d 7 r. tendons

Sliiiukaice of Hay.
It is a co union belief annni farmers
that buy loses much in weight during the
in.uilhs which follow the cutting and
housing of the crop, and that hay drawn
froan the barn in winter should command
a much higher price than the same hav
dra u from the meadow as soon as cured.
The eapefiiuenta made at the Kansas ex
periment station lead to a different con
clusion. Thirteen samples of several dif
ferent kinds of hay were secured for this
purpose, and placed in very thin muslin
bags. They were weighed and then buried
in a mow of hay. Most of them re
mained six month-., an. I were weighed
again in December, several precautions
having been taken to prevent error. In
most cases the loss by drying was trifling,
not over i or 4 per cent. In two in
stances it was over 10 per cent. In one
case there was a txisitive Kain. There
are two causes which would materially
control the result a wet or dry summer
and the degree of drying in the Held to
which the hay is subjected. Some farm
ers draw in their hay obviously before it
is quite dry. Those who sell and buy
hay should understand this matter, and
it would lie easy for them to make care
ful trials. The degree of moisture which
may be left in hay as it is drawn from
the meadow should be better understood.
There is no question that it is often sub
jected needlessly t a drying.
A Kicking Cow.
An Oregon farmer gives a remedy for
kicking cows which be claims to have
used with great success lot the past
twelve years: Take a small rope or cord
about the size of a clothes line; make a
loop, inoneend; hold the loop end in one
hand, drop the other end over the cow's
back; pick it up and pass it through the
loop, then slip it back just behind the
hips, bringing it underneath just forward
of and close to the udder, adjusting it so
that the loop is near the back bone.
Now draw the rope through the loop
tightly and fasten it, the more tightly
the better if the animal is very vicious.
On the first application she will jump
and try to kick and perhaps bellow; but
let her kick, she will soon get tired of
doing so. Now you can sit down and
milk without the least danger. You can
hardly provoke her to kick. If she
should still try to kick, tighten the rope
and continue to do this till she gives up.
Three applications in succession will
cure the worst case. Treat her kindly
and gently all tho time without the least
Beat Time to Huy llees.
Mrs. I Harrison, whose long experi
ence entitles her opinions to considera
tion, says in Prairie Farmer: "All things
coiiMdeied, spring is best: Batesft the 1st
of April, not earlier, in this latitude.
OikkI, strong colonies, with a vigorous
queen, would run little risk of loss before
a return of the outlay might lie expected.
When liees are purchased at the close of
the honey harvest or in the fall or winter
they are cf no source of profit to their
owner until flowers bloom. 1 have heard
persons who had bees to sell in the fall
talk glibly of the number of pounds of
honey there were in the hives to a would
be purchaser. Suppose there was; the
bees w ould need every ounce of it to live
upon and rear brood before flowers
bloomed, and the purchaser would run
the risk of losing the colony if he took
away any to eat upon his cakes."
