SANITARY MILK PAILS.
Most Important Thing in Dalry la
Keeping Dirt Out.
Much the larger proportion of milk
ts carried tn wide-topped, uncovered
pails from the cow to the strainer, a
distance of 25 to 100 feet, across a
cow yard, under a hay loft, or past a
manure pile, thus exposing a large
aurface of warm milk, which absorbs
all kinds of undesirable odors and
collects dirt and dust.
Galvanized Iron is something used
for milk pails, but it is not best, for
the rough surfaces afford hiding places
for bacteria. Wooden vessels should
not be used for holding milk, for it is
almost impossible to keep them dean.
Besides imparting a metallic flavor to
Double Protection. No Spattering,
milk, rusty tinware is objectionable
because it is impossible to keep it
clean. Good tin is the only practica?
ble material for milk vessels, and it
must be kept shiny and bright
The most important thing in pro?
ducing milk is to keep the dirt ont
This can only be done by carefully
grooming the cows and by using a
sanitary pail, two of which are ahowfl
here. There are several types of
these pails, but they all have the aamc
principle. There is a cover with a
small opening, under which li faaten*
ed a cheesecloth atreiaer. The one
with the spout strains the milk as it
enters the pail, and also as it
poured out.?Farm and Home.
Profit from Four Cows.
I started with four corri In th<
of 1S0S to make butter, writes a
respondent of the Rum] Home. The
cows were on the Jersey and Darli
strain. I rented a pasture of 15 acreb
about four miles from where I lived.
Every morning and evening, rain or
shine, I drove to and from the pas?
ture. I fed them bran and mashed
1. 1 got from 14 to 15 gallons
from the four cows every day. 1 let
the milk set two days and th-^n skim?
med it (by hand i. I made from three
to four rolls of butter a week and I
lt at from 4'? to ">(> cent? a roll. I i
tributed to the support of the :
In this way for. nd to-day
I have a herd of 12 cows and a bank
account of 1150.
In some sections macy of the best
dairymen are adapting the Holltnd
plan of -ombining and hiring men to
:t each herd one day in the month
and test the milk of each cow. thea
giving the owners an idea of whick
cows are the ones that are ?
for their keep. This plan is a very
sensible one and should he encour?
aged. The cost is comparatively small,
as the Tester boards with the family
while he i? doing his work and is car?
ried to the next place the day he bea
completed hi? work. Thi? insures
regularity in the work. In Michigan
this plan ha? greatly increased the
average production per eow. Wiscon?
sin, too has taken up thi? matter, it
is good business and it may become
popular, but some of our dairymen
are hard to turn from the heaten paths
of their fathers.?Farmers and Dfov

A little grain helps the cows, even

Passing of Horned Cuttle.
Horned cattle and horned aheap are
rapidly disappearing. Many of the
cattle bred and led m the ron:
are hornless. Breeds of this kind are
growing in popularity In the moun?
tainous country and on the plains wild
cattle needed long horns for the pro?
tection of themaetrea and their young
Now, howorer, with the plains thi? k
ly settled and with few wild animal?
the cattle do not rited hom?. A mc nj?
the hornless breeds are tue Galloway,
Angus, Red Poll and Polled Short
horns. Pollard Jersey and Polled Here?
ford are alao coming into favor. By
the application of caustic potash the
growth of the horns is prevented in
the young calf.
Why Small Profits?
The trouble has been in tbe past
that too many farmers have ma.de
dairying secondary to other work.
When anything had to be neglected it
was always the dairy, and for this rea?
son tbe profits from their dairies have

A certain man. of rather a wa|
disposition, rrtntends that his i
has no imagination. A writer in the'
Philadelphia Public I.edeer tells
he thinks so. At dinner one night he
chanced to mention a tragic eircuae
aatance whi^h he had read in the e. n
ing paper on the way home.
lt seemed that a passenger on a
transatlantic steamer had fallen ow r
board in mid-ocean, and had never
been seen again.
"Was he drowned*" asked his wife.
"Oh, no." answered the husband,
"but he sprained his ankle, I believe."*
Paper from the Okra Stem.
From extended experiments feat

source is likely to be erected in that
city at an early date. Okra is easily /
