prooure the largest supply of availablo
matter from the several kinds of feed.

factory results than those who feed as a
routinewithout having any special pur
poae to aebomplish by so doing. Al.
though animals are not confined to any
particular diet exclusively, u 'aere they
can be allowed a variety, yet all that
can be obtained from the feed, whether
it be concentrated or bulky, is classed
under the heads of protein, carbo-by
drates; fat and ash. Protein is that sub
stance which is principally found in
lean meat, the white of eggs and in the
blood, being nitrogenous, while the
carbo-hydrates include starch, woody
fibre, sugar, eto., and derive the name
from the fact that they are composed
(no matter in what form we possess
them) of carbon, hydrogen and ox3 gen,
Fat exibts in plants, also, but in small
quantities. Ash relates to the mineral
substances which supply the bones and
As the matter which i; appropriated
by the auinal is composed of these four
substances-protein, carbo-h) drates,fat
and ash-it is at once apparent that, in
order to ieed to the best advantage,
some consideratiou must be given the
character of the food allowed, and, in
stead of feeding indiscriminately, cer
tan quantities and propoi tions must be
used. MAny yaluabie experiments have
been made ior the purpose of testing
grains and todder, in order to estimate
their value ior iceding,and we aze grad.
