A ROUND DAIRY BARN.
Takes Less Material to Build and la More Convenient. I send a photograph of the round dairy barn on the Faywood farms in Grand Isle county, Vermont, owned by Maj. A. H. Davis of Onondaga county. New York, explains a correspondent of Breeders' Gazette. The barn is 90 feet in diameter, having stanchions on the ground floor for about 75 head. A round silo holding nearly 400 tons extends from the ground to the roof A Vermont Dairy Barn. under the cupola. There are no cross beams except those supporting the floor above the cows, so nothing is in the way when storing hay. The separator and power room is lo cated behind the inclined road leading to the upper doors. A manure shed is seen at the back. Economy of lumber and convenience in feeding are claimed for round barns. COWS, HOGS AND HENS. There Is a Growing Appreciation of the Value of the First Named. There is a growing appreciation of the dairy cow. Not long ago a farm er expressed himself to the writer as a friend of the cow that gives lots of milk, simply because she furnished him with skim milk and buttermilk for his hogs. He is 1n the hog busi ness and is very successful. We don't like this kind of an expression of ap preciation of the cow, but it is better than none. Had he said that he ap preciated the hog because it enabled him to realize more from his dairy, it would have suited the writer better, but that is simply because the cow is first in our esteem, says the North western Agriculturist: But the fact remains the same anyway. In order to realize greatest returns from the dairy cow the farmer should make good use of the by-products. Hogs and poultry will make handsome re turns for these. As our farmers turn their attention from exclusive grain raising to diversified farming they will from year to year more appreci ate the .value of that great combina tion, good cows, good hogs and good poultry. TO MAKE GOOD BUTTER. You Need Good Cows and Then They Must Be Handled Right. Good cows, proper feed and drink, and thorough care of the dairy come before the management of milk in the production of butter. But after the milk is produced absolute cleanliness of material and utensils is essential, writes a New York correspondent of the Orange .Ttidd Farmer. I make only about 12 pounds of butter a week, put up in two, five and eight pound jars, to be sold direct to pri vate customers. For the butter of ordinary cattle I use about two tea spoonfuls of commercial coloring to 100 pounds, but for that of Jerseys less, as their butter is more highly colored. Butter should be worked until all the water is well out, but no more. The old rule of one ounce of salt to the pound may be all right for large packages to putin storage, but for small packages for the consumers, three-quarters of an ounce is better. My experience and close observation of half a century convinces me that among farmers much butter is spoiled by keeping the cream too long and by overworking and oversalting. Handling the Calves. Young calves are coming daily on farms where many cows are kept, and as fast as one arrives it usually finds itself in the "calf pen," away from the mother. This means more milking and more milk. When grass grows green again, the milk flow w/l be still further increased. However, there seems little danger of overdo ing the trade, for folks must have the products of the dairy. Meat products are high, which always helps along the sale of butter. As production cheapens, the price lowers accord ingly, but there seems no danger of the present ratio of cost and selling price being disturbed. The Butter Trade, The only way the local butter trade can be put upon a paying basis to the producer is to quit butter making for a time and adopt the cream selling plan. Anything less than 20 cents, present price of feed considered, leaves no profit to the maker of but ter, and dairy folks should quit pro ducing a product on a no-profit basis. It is bad for the business in general. The laborer is certainly worthy of his hire. Cows must be kept in good work ing condition or the game is a losing on*. HOW TO MAKE GOOD BUTTER. ' Beet Results Are Obtained from Cream That Is Obtained by Separator. Hand separator cream produces bet ter butter than that separated by any other method. The deep can surround ed by cold water is second best; pans and crocks are third bent, and the water dilution method comes last. The cream should be kept in as nearly a sweet condition as possible until enough has been gathered for a churning. This should then be soured or ripened. To ripen the cream warm it to a temperature of 75 to 80 degrees, until it is sour enough; then cool down to a temperature of from 50 to CO de grees, which is right for churning. it stand at this temperature for an hour or so before churning, if possible. This will cause the butter to come in better condition. Cream that is being ripened should be thoroughly stirred several times before it is ready for churning. It is often advisable to save some of the buttermilk of one churning to be used as a starter (the same as yeast in bread-making) for the next batch of cream. Add a small amount of thi3 buttermilk to the sweet cream when enough has been gathered for a churn ing; thoroughly stir it, and it will ripen very much more rapidly. Care should be exercised to keep this old butter milk in as good condition as possible. One of the main causes for having to churn from one to five hours is either too warm or too cool temperature of the cream. With a temperature of from 55 to 60 degrees, butter should be pro duced in from thirty to forty-five min utes, providing the other conditions are right. Strain all cream into the churn, says the Journal of Agriculture. This will remove all clots and particles of curd, and there will be no danger of white specks in the butter. Do not fill the churn over one-third to' one-half full. Give the cream room for agitation, which insures quick churning. Turn the churn fast enough to give the cream the greatest amount of agita tion. In order to make a uniformly col ored batter for the entire year, some color must necessarily be used. Very little will be required during the spring and summer months, when the cows are getting green feed. Colored butter is not only more appetizing, but can be sold on the market for a very much better price than that which is not col ored. The color should be added to the cream in the churn before starting to churn. The butter should be gathered until the grains become about one-half the size of wheat. Then draw oft the but termilk through a strainer and wash the butter in cold water, two or three times, or until the wash water Is re moved practically clear. In washing, care should be exercised not to bring the grains together, but rather keep it in the granular condition. The wash ing of the butter removes the butter milk and makes the butter keep for a longer time. It also puts it in better condition for salting. The butter should be taken from the churn in the granular condition and the salt sprinkled over it before it has been worked together. Usually a scant ounce of salt ir jded for each pound of butter. Once working, at the time of salting, is usually sufficient, providing the but ter is hard enough when removed from the churn. If the butter is somewhat soft when taken out, it can be salted and set away for a few hours until it gets hard enough to finish. Butter is usually worked enough when the water has been removed so that it will bend without breaking. Too much working will spoil its grain and make it salvy; while leaving too much water in it will spoil its keeping qualities. Pack or print the butter as soon as it has been worked sufficiently and put it in a cool place until it is taken to the market. Remember that, the ap pearance of the package, as well aa the way the butter is packed, has a great deal to do with the selling price. HOLDER FOR MILK PAILS.

In the Nebraska dairy, whore the machines were tried, two oper.it.ors were able to keep up a record o? milking 21 cows an hour. Ihis would mean an average of a cow every five or six minutes for each man. The fa ther of a typical Kansas milkmaid will probably demand a greater sav ing in time than this before he will consider the purchase of a machine., CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 1909.

TOTAL LOSS OF HAIR Beemed Imminent—Scalp Was Very Scaly and Hair Came Out by Hand fuls—Scalp Now Clear and New Hair Grown by Cuticura. "About two years ago I was troubled with my head being scaly. Shortly after that I had an attack of typhoid fever and I was out of the hospital possibly two months when I first no ticed the loss of hair, my scalp being still scaly. I started to use dandruff cures to no effect whatever. I had actually lost hope of saving any hair at all. I could brush it off my coat by the handful. I was afraid to comb it. But after using two cakes of Cuti cura Soap and nearly a box of Cuti cura Ointment, the change was sur prising. My scalp is now clear and healthy as could be and my hair thick er than ever, whereas I had my mind made up to be bald. W. F. Steese, 5812 Broad' St., Pittsburg, Penn., May 7 and 21, 1908."

Connec tion was made with the pipes of the rectory, which stood on the adjoining lot. All the preliminary tests were satisfactory. On the Sunday morn ing when the apparatus was to be used for the first time at a regular ■ervlce the organist arrived early for a final trial. There was not a hitch. The congregation generally knew of the innovation, and awaited the open ing strains of the processional with uncommon interest. Not a sound came from the organ, however, and the cho'r had to march in singing the hymn as best it could, unaccompanied. Of course the disappointment was keen. The rector's wife was resourceful.

SICK DOCTOR Proper Food Put Him Right, The food experience of a physician In his own case when worn and weak from sickness and when needing nour ishment the worst way is valuable: "An attack of grip, so severe it came near making an end of me, left my stomach in such condition I could not retain any ordinary food. I knew of course that I must have food nourish ment or I cculd never recover. "I began to take four tablespoonfuls of Grape-Nuts and cream three times a day and for 2 weeks this was almost my only food; it tasted so delicious that I enjoyed It immensely and my stomach handled it perfectly from the first mouthful. It.was so nourishing I was quickly built back to normal health and strength. "Grape-Nuts is of great value as rood to sustain life during serious at tacks in which the stomach is so de ranged it cannot digest and assimilate ather foods.
