blazing fire i»i ihe enjoyment of com'

Let every farmer look well to things,
for his interest is identified with thd
comfort of his stock. A li'tle neglect
may make all the difference between
profit and loss. Farmers should ne*
to their animals themselves, and no!
trust too much to boys, nor to other*
whom ihey may employ. They most
be educated in these important affair*,
but the eye of ihe master, and a f:-\*
practical lessons, now and then, will
not only benefit himself, but greatly
aid those tinder his instruction. Nev

accurately of these things, and many
men fail in their judgement in this res

they may not turn ihe cattle to the
water till ten o'clock, and then again
at four, or they may be out only be«
iween these periods, anil have arcesrf

and then they are deprived of water
for 18 hour®, and during this time
take all their food, and that as dry as a
