I Ilnlry Ilelim, I nm glnd when 1 see n young fatincr's wife ready and willing to take hold of the dairy work ami learn the beat methods herself, for there Ih nothing that requires jicriipuloun care and neatness more than milk and butter. To have it good it needs laily attention. A young house wife making her first butter says it taatea old or pcouliar, but that he la very, very particular and neat with the milkcrocka.pans.etc. You aro not the llrst one, my dear, who has had this experience. One of the most noted butter makers In the blue-grass country told me she had till complaint made to her by one of her city riiatoiurrs, and after thorough investigation she found that the trouble lay In her having kept 11 o cream too long and had let the rich cream get old before churning and It tasted In the butler. One very excellent idea Mic gave me was that she since then rinsed her churn, butter, flrkina, etc., crocks, pans nnd all In :i weak solution of so"lf handled or touched It could take on no Impurities. It kills microbes and disease, germs, disinfects and purifies; hence there N nothing that nerds it more than milk vessels, us milk and butter take on impurities quicker tlinn any other product. Many gallons of cream and pounds of butter are spoiled because the'chuni. etc., arc not kept immaculate. S. H., In FarincrV Home .lourual. TronlilfMiMiir, lint Tlic I'ny. Chickens are u trouble and nuisance, wr nil admit that; it Is a bother to look nfter a penful of pigs, to roam the Ileitis after young turkeys, to try to keep calves within bounds: and it ia only when we do away with tho trouble nnd nuisance and bother for a season that wo realize to the full their Value. Two or three hundred chickens underfoot are apt to try one's patience, but those same two or three hundred chickens, grown large nnd plump, adding to the family, the market output, tho egg producing force of the farm hens, inert what would otherwise lie ninny Vexing items of expense. The turkeys bring their reward from Thanksgiving to Christmas, nnd, besides bountiful feasts, jlcld the farmer's wife reaily money which she finds very convenient, and which causes her to forget wearisome Journeys to search for stolen nests and to check roving propensities. And so with the pigs and calves and many other thing which may aeem a nuisance nnd bother. They arc vital jwrts of the complex necessities of farm life; jwrc of the cheerful, changing work which is ao inviting to every energetic person who loves the country.

Avoid feeding buttermilk or very sour milk for the first few days after farrowing. Feed sparingly for ten dnys, gradually increasing the feed until she eats it up elenn twice dny. Select the best sows to breed from; have vigor, sUe, bone nnd early maturing qualities always In mind. There is nothing better than sweet milk, ground oats, shorts, middling and oil meal fixed into u slop. Shut tho sow up only u few daj.s before farrowing, nnd If the weather Is cold cover her with n warm blanket.
