WILL IT PAY 1o &rAM ? ob3D?-Tak
ing the word fodder I its broadest sense,
as any kind of food for gramniverous ani
mals, we may bay that it will always pay
to steam or cook feed for swine, and often
for cows in stables contaimng 25 head or
more, while for sheep and. horses It will be
of doubtful expediency, and usually not
advisable under any circumstances. The
cooking of feed for fattening swine is Im
portaut as a matter of economy, that it
will pay, even though done with little re
gard to the saving of labor and fuel. On
the other hand, to cook the feed for neat
cattle with profit, not only should there be
animals enough to make it pay,but the ra
tions should be so carefully planned, that
thti by mingling of- palatable, with less
relished and coarse fodder, a saving may
he effected in that way. Besidea tue ob
ject for which the cattle are kept is an im
portant factor to be considered in the feed
The flow of milk is increased by steam
ing the fodder-the color of the butter Is,
however, lvjured. The same ration will
prove more fattening, while, at the same
thne: there will be little or no waste, if the
steaming is well managed. It is best to
have the steamed ration composed of a
Yaiiety of food, such as corn fodder, roots,
hay, or oat straw, with bran and corn
meal, or cotton seed, or linseed cake, or
meat. The substitution of one kind of
fodder or meal for another, gives varioty
a'id relish. The coarse fodder is cooked
soft, and the flavor of the roots and of the
meal pervades th mass, It is not likely
that any of the small agricultural dteamers
can be made to economically cook the food
for as many as 20 or 30 head of cattle.
When a boIler of several horse power is
employed to do other work, as pumping,
thrashing, sawing wood, grinding, cutting
hay, and corn fodder, etc., steai may be
economically used for cooking fodder. Of
this there can be little doubt. The steam
box in which the fodder is placed fol
cook tg, if it is big enough, need not be
tilled ottener than twice a week, and if. as
already intimated, every pains is taken in
the operation to save in the items of labor
and luel, steaming fodder for cattle will
UnOwINo YoUNg 6TOK.-The mot
appr-priate food for all kinds of young
stock is'the mother's milk, and so soon as
the young things can be induced to cal,
other feed, grass, etc., they should be sup
plied with giound feed, shelled corn, hay,
grass and any other such feed, which being
fed with the dani's milk, makes the most
satisfactory growth. The milk materially
aids digestion, and thus it is thiAt the lar
ger quantity of food Is consumed, which,
with the milk, niakes the itnest possible
growth of flesh, hone and muscle. It was
this milk and shelled corn that made the
famous big stker In Alissouri out of the
scrub calf, and bad that calf been a good
high grade still better results would have
been obtained with the milk feed and care
of that calf. Guod blootd is iiportaut, for

results in dollars and cents.

padding. Cotton wool is irst sown
very firmly upon the outlined design,
and then the beads are threaded in the

trying to the eyes but so fascinating
that ambitious workers are always elab

drawing out the threads of fine linen

stitches of every variety. Recently,
decoration for towels and napkins has
taken this form : The threads are
drawn out at regular intervals, and then
a design is worked in the interstioe ia

aside from injuring the carpet, it makes
the work harder, because the bran be
comes very heavy it very damp. The
bran should be sifted evenly 9vor the
floor, and then the room swept as usual,
The bran scours and cleanses the whole
fabric, very little dust is made while
sweeping with it, and scarcely any sat
ties on furniture, pictures, etc., after
the work is accomplished, becauso every
particle of dirt, threadt, bits of paper, or
lint is gathered up into the mass of bran
that is being moved over the floor, and
so thoroughly incorporated with it that
it will not be easily separated. Uarpets
