two doing it one day; then these two
men do not help again until their turn
comes again, say once every three
days. During the day of twenty-four
hours a cow. as near as I am able to
estimate it, will consume 100 pounds
of this green alfalfa and each cow
drinks 100 pounds of water. This
subject of water for cows is of so
much importance, and in fact a ne
cessity, that it is difficult to form
even a faint idea how often it is over
looked or neglected. About eighty
seven per cent of milk is water and if
this supply of water is limited the
milk yield is proportionately reduced.

'Tis this way, Hinnissy; th' coun
thry was all right whin we was young
and hearty, befure we became en
feebled with luxuries, d'ye mind.
'Twas all right whin we cud shtand
it. But we'er not so strong as we
was. We're diff'rent men, Hinnissy.
Ye may say, as Hogan does, that
we're ladin' an artificyal life, but ye
might as well tell me I ought to be
paradin' up an' down a hillside in a
suit if skins, shootin' th' antylope an'
th' moose, be gorry, an' livin' in a
cave as to make me believe I ought
to get along without sthreet cars an'

"We ought to live where all the
good things iv life comes from," says
Hogan. "No," says I, "the place to
live in is where all th' good things iv
life goes to." Ivrything that's worth
havin' goes to th' city; th' counthry
takes what's left. Ivrything that's
worth havin' goes to th' city an' is
iced. Th' cream comes in an' th'
skim-milk stays; th' sunburnt viggy
tables is consumed by th' hearty far
mer boy an' I go down to Callaghan's
store an ate th' sunny half iv a peach.
Th' farmer boy sells what he has fur
money an' I get the money back whin
he comes to town in th' winther to see
th' exposition. They give us th' pro
ducts in th' soil an' we give them cot
tage organs an' knock-out dhrops. an'
they think they're broke even.
Don't lave army wan convince ye
th' country's th' place to live, but
don't spread th' news yet fer awhile.
I'm goin' to advertise 'Dooley-ville-be-

sthreet cars an' railway thrains an'
aisy reach iv ambulances. Spind th'
summer far from the busy haunts iv
th' fly an' th' bug by th' side iv the
pudlin' ice-wagon.' I'll do it, I tell ye.
I'll organize excursions an' I'll have
th' poor iv th' counthry in here settin'
on th' cool steps; I'll take thim to th'
ball game; I'll lave 'im sleep till
breakfast time an' I'll sind thim back
to other overcrowded homes to

Young goslings are soon able to care
for themselves after the weather be
comes warm, and the keeping of geese
is therefore less expensive than with
some other kinds of poultry, as they
prefer to forage and secure their food
on pasture lots. The keeping of geese
for the feathers only is not printable,
compared to using the large Embden
or Toulouse varieties and shipping
your geese to market, as they bring
good prices when large and of the best
