If the young horse passes through the

About Butter-Making.
A lady who seems to know a good
deal about practical dairy matters
contributes the following items to the
Farm Journal:
Sprinkle the- salt in the butter and
let it stand one-half hour and then
You will find all the salt dissolved
and the butter will be moist and have
plenty of grain.
Many people work butter too much.
It should be pressed together. Never
use a rubbing motion.
If worked as soon as salted the but
ter will be dry, as all the water will
be worked out, will consequently
weigh less and the flavor will not be
so fine.
If butter is to be used at once one
washing is sufficient; if it is to be
kept a long time wash two or three
Never churn until the last added
cream has been mired twenty-four
hours in winter.
Churn in a room as near sixty de
grees as possible., Never in a very
hot or a very cold room. Never fill
the churn more than half full.
Never attempt to churn: without
using a thermometer.
Soils Are lmproving.
Declaring that the world's soils are
to-day a greater storehouse of fertil
ity than they ever were, Professor
Milton Whitney, chief of the Soils Bu
reau in the Department of Agricul
ture, Washington, D. C., in a bulletin
just issued, takes a stand in direct
opposition to the view of many writ
ersi that soils are gradually wearing
Professor Whitney states that a
study of the record for the last forty
years will show that the average of
crops is increasing, particularly in
the older States, where the soil has
been worked the longest. There has
been, he states, an increase of two
bushels in the average yield of wheat
per acre in the last forty years, al
though the yield of corn has decreased,
one-half a bushel.
"The soils of New England have
mate'ially increased in yields of corn
and wheat during forty ye~s," says
the professor, "but, what is more
startling, they are producing iconsid
erably heavier yields than the soils of
the Mississippi River States."
He adds that an examination of the
records shows that the leading Euro
pe~an nations are not only producing
greater crops now tha'n at an earlier
period, but the orops are larger than
those produced by the comparatively
new soils of the United States.
Grass Fed Beef.
Professor Humford in referring to
his six months' observations while in
Argentina, South America, says that
very fine' herds of cattle are produced
in Argentina without a mouthful of
grain. These cattle are fed simply
grass and a-lfalfa and were never In a
stable. He saw breeding cattle in
extra fine flesh on alfalfa pasture.
Grass fed mutton has gone from
a~rgentina to London market too fat
to sell. On one ranch of 100,000
icres there are 18,600 cattle, 10,000
sheep and 2000 horses--all market
tat without a pcund of grain. Most
>f the cattle country is flat and level
and the climate is ideal for growing,
is blizzards and severe weather are
Argentina is a real competitor of
~he United States and has diuring the
past three years shipped considerable
nore beef to Great Britain than has
ur own country. The beef can be
lelivered in I4ondon from Argentina
ms-cheaply as it can from Chicago.
Our beef growers have not a'wak
mned to the dangerous competition of
:he South American cotantry, but the
facts are indisputable. .Our great
anges have practically disappeared
and new methods of beef raisin'g are
ioming into practice., But still bet
:er methods must be adopted, else It
vill be impossible for our farmers to
-aisde cattle profitably on our high
cdlands in competition with our
Southern competitors.
Heavier Farm Horse.
We are more than ever convinced
:hat many farm horses are entirely
;oo light for the work required of
:hem. On nearly every farm we see
zorses of- different sizes, and while all
nay be good for certain uses, for'
aeavy work and much of the work on
m farm properly tilled, is heavy, the
stronger horses not only do the work
easie-r than the others, but they do it
muore effectively. For instance, sup
pose a farmer wants to use his spring
:ooth harrow. When horses are
strong enougha to do this work prop
rly the teeth can be put down much
~ eper, and consequently they do the
-ork just that much more effectively.
using a disk. Of course, there may
be some instances where light horsgs
will have the advantage, as, for in
stance, when drawing a harrow or
weeder. But the number of instances
when, the light horses of the farm
will do work as well as heavy horses
are comparatively few. Very much
will depend upon the kind of land
and ybon the nature of the farming
that Is being carried on, but on nearly
all kinds of soils good strong horses
will be found preferable to those of
light weights. On clay farms it is
simply indispensable to keep horses
able to do work that calls for much
strength to do it properly. This ques- T
tion Is sufficiently Important to en- t
gage the .attention of those who ap- -
parently have not thought of it, or
having- thought of it have not been
duly influenced by its great import P(

Hog Feeding Test. d(
One of the State experiment sta
tions has made a careful test in feed
ing bogs certain foods, and gives the
results in the following summary:
1. That it required eighteen per
cent. more barley by weight than corn
to produce the same gain in feeding
pigs when both grains were fed in the
proportion of four parts of grain to
one of shorts by weight.
2. That it is profitable to feed bar
ley to hogs if pork is selling at an
average price.
3. That the carcasses of the pigs
fed barley and shorts showed a grest
er distribution of lean and firmer flesh
than the carcasses of pigs fed corn
and shorts.
4. That pgis fed on corn and
shorts will dress a higher per cent.
than pigs fed on barley and shorts.
5. That cross bred Yorkshire- L
Berkshires made more grain than the co
other cross breds or pure breds used th
In this trial.
Another test at feeding other foods bc
is given as follows: in
1. We can conclude from the re- be
sults of this trial that ground reject- ar
ed wheat is capable of produding good pi
gains when fed to swine in connection ne
with shorts. a,
2. In comparisonl with corn it re- cl<
quires 8.9 per cent. more rejected m:
wheat than corn to produce the same w
gains. pt
3. The quality of pork produced is is
even better than that produced by bc
corn. cr
4. If pork is selling for a reason-* ru
able price a fairly good price may be ce
expected from feeding the rejected to
wheat to swine. en
Make Good Butter. sU
Farmers who make butter for mar
ket and sundry small butter manu
facturers who are stirred by the ac
tivity of the Federal authorities in a
making arrests for violations of the
Federal law regulating the manufac
ture and sale of adulterated butter
have been calling on H: E. Barnard,
State food and drug commissioner, in
considerable numbers recently for In
formation as to how to avoid trouble
at the hands of the Federal inspect
ors. Tne answer invariably is, "Make
good butter."
Under the Federal law any butter
which contains sixteen per cent. or
more of water is adulterated butter.
A license tax of $800 is required for
its mnanufacture; license for dealing
In the material at wholesale costs
$480, while a retailer's license costs
$48. In addition a tat of ten cents a
pound is imposed o'n all such adulter
ated butter manufactured., -
"It is easy for the farmer and the
small butter maker to- make butter
which will stand the Government
test," said Mr. Barnard. "The chief
point is to remove all the butterm'lk
cont'ained in the butter when the
churning is complete. This can be
done by washing the product repeat
edly through clear, cool or cold water
until no traces of the buttermilk re
main. Then the butter should be
worked, either by a machine w~orker
or by the old fashioned paddle such
as our grandmothers used to use. BDy
washing and working any batch of
butter which a farmer's wife may
make may be made as solid and firm
as creamery butter, and will easily
meet all the requirements of the Fed
eral food law.
"Many farmers' wives who have
prided themselves for years on mak
ing good butter reall-y make only a
fair grade of axle grease. Their but
ter contains, so much water that it
would not pass Federal inspection.
and unider strict interpretation of the
law, the maker would be subject to
fine if an attempt were made to sell-it
'as pure butter. Much of the butter
that comnes- from the farms to the In- Y0
dianapolis and other markets Is
washed through perhaps only one'
water, molded into patties- and rushed
to market. -
"Under the most favorable oondi-wl
tions it will not remain sweet more
than a few days, because of the but
termilk It contains. This butter com
siands only a comparatively low price,
whereas Its value can be greatly en
hanced If properly treated. At the
same time the danger of the maker's
being called, to account by the Fed
eral Inspectors will be removed.
"Moreover, many~ farmers' wives
makes the mistake of churning their
cream before it is 'ripe' enough. The
cream should be permitted to stand
until fully ripened before the butter
making process is started. "-Indian,
