There are many stages which milK may be said to pass through before being delivered at the factory. The cows should be placed in clean quar ters when being milked and their ud ders and flanks should be carefully rubbed off before the process begins, in order to remove all particles of dust and dirt. The practice of wetting the hands while milking is considered a means of contamination that should be avoided. After milk is drawn it should not be allowed to stand around in stables and gradually cool, because under such circumstances it absorbs odors very rapidly. It should be im mediately taken to clean, sweet quar ters and carefully strained. If a spe cial device is not at hand for aerating the milk it is an excellent plan to al low it to run through the strainer from one vessel to another two or three times, as this will greatly purify it. By running it through the strainer in this way all particles of foreign mat ter are removed, as well as an oppor tunity given for the evaporation of all bad flavors. The more rapidly the temperature can be reduced, providing the surroundings are healthful, the bet ter will be the keeping qualities of the milk. Where water is plentiful op the farm the evening's milk should be placed in it if it is to be kept until next morning before taking it to the creamery. After placing the can in the water it is a good plan to stir the milk freely for a short time, as this will bring about a more rapid cooling. In warm weather it is never advisable to pour the warm morning's milk in that which has stood for a period tit ten or twelve hours., because the rise of temperature will gradually induce souring or some form of acid develop ment. Instances have been known where mornings and night's milk have been mixed in this way while both were perfectly sweet, but in the course of an hour after mixing the milk was so sour as to be utterly useless. 11 is by paying attention to such matters as have here been outlined that the dairyman may assist in obtaining not only a better price for his own prod uct, but also for that of his neighbors. The Yakima Fruit Growers' union has been organized and entered in a contract with J. M. Perry to handle the crop of the members. He ships all the fruits grown and sent out of the city by each member. For this serv ice he receives 5 per cent of the sales. The boxes are supplied by him at prices quoted by the boxmakers' or ganization. The union has a member ship of 64 of the leading fruit men. Many others will be added later. Peaches and apricots are being ship ped at present. It is said that W. L. Wright, president of the union, has shipped 600 boxes of peaches, and re ceived at least $50 more than he could possibly have obtained by handling the fruit personally. Large shipments will begin in a few days.—Yakima Herald. If the yards containing poultry are bare, give the occupants daily supplies of green stuff —lawn clippings, lettuce leaves, tender weeds, anything that will not offset the flavor of the eggs disagreeably. The Oak Hill Stock Farm of North Yamhill, Or., will sell at the Spokane lair 40 head of Shorthorns at auction. This will be a fine chance to buy purebreds of that breed. iTHE records show) .(THE U.
