The cows are all well fed, grouped in herds according to the breed, groomed once a day, so that they are kept clean and healthy, and when viewed at unlk ing time present the appearance of a large and happy family. They are fed 00 ensilage, at present mixed with green ( 1 over hay, while ground feed, steam cooked, is mixed with their rations. The night's milking is poured direct from the p.ul into a large tank, well s re n l.t.'.e mi.k :ir-t li.iv.n; passed through a special strainer puil, the m vention of Nlr. Spragu The pail is so arranged that about four thicknesses of cheese cloth, with a heavy puco of cotton underneath, ure stretched across the top of the pail, which is litfed with a cover to draw over the edges aud ar ranged so that the milk will not 'spatter over the sides. It is utterly impossible for any foreign substance to get into the pail as arranged in this manner, hut still further precaution is taken by having it pass through two more screens so that when it finally reaches the cream sepa rator the slightest speck of dirt is not disceruable. Mr. Sprague uses a steam eugine to run his separator, so that an even speed is maintained, and when his mac hine is set by the Habcock tester to separate the cream with a 22 per cent, butter fat in it, he knows that he is sure to have what he contracts to sell. The dairy room is a model of cleanli nes The walls are pure white, cement floors, running water, screened windows, all add to the general appearance and present a very sanitary aspect. In this dairy room will also be found a large ice chest for keeping the cream and milk in good condition for delivery at any time. Besides usiujj the engine for running the cream separator, Mr. Sprague ha a feed mill in the second story of the barn and when he has a few hours' tun grinds up a load or two of feed for his stock. S'eam from the boiler is also used to cook food, dean tanks, cans, etc. In addition to the cattle Mr. Sprague is feeding kabout ?." hogs, mostly from the separator milk, although buttermilk is also obtained from the creamery for the same purpose, a large tank being used to convey it to the farm from the creamery. a aanr WE DON'T CLAIM EVERYTHING r ))iul( For the Clothes we sell, but we do claim, and the maker's guarantee insures, that the fabrics, the linings, the tailoring and the wearing qualities of -:- -:- -:- STEIN-BLOCH SMART CLOTHES are superior to any other readytowear clothes sold for th iiiney.
