VERMONT WATCHMAJS & STATE JOUHNAL WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1897. AGRICULTURAL, Tho Kush or Work. Most fnrmers hnvo to rush things from tho bcglnninK of sowing nnd plnnting till tho ond of tho grain hnr vcst. Has ing is cspccially n tlmo of rushing thlngs, espccielly If thoro is a good denl of hay to cut. Tho grnss must bo cut at tho right tlmo or it will bo of poor quality. Many kinds of farm work rnust bo dono on timo or grcnt loss must rosult. It is nhvnys bettcr to kccp a liltlo nhoad of farm work tban to let it got bchipd nnd drivo tho farmcr. I3elated farm work is nn nwful bad mnstor, rolentless, unpitying, cruel. But this sca&on very mnny far mers havo been kept back by tho wet weathcr, and havo had a hard strugglo to keop anywhcro near up with their work. It is lo bo hoped that after hay iug, or at loast after tho grain harvest this stato of things will end, and the farmers get a much-needed timo to rcst a little, perhaps tako a vacatlon. We earnestly urgo all our farm readers to get a fow days away from homo, if possible. Especially should the wife and molher go away for at least a brief change of scene, Too many farmers do not realizo that tho rush of work presses upon tho women folks of the farm from ono year's end to another with little lntermiesion. How many hours tho wife has to work hard when tho husband is riding or tnlklng, or do ing that which renlly is a cbango nnd a rest for him. It seems to grow more difllcult to llnd indoor help on tho farm. So many women and girls aro doing tho work which was formorly dono by rnon nnd boys, so many new occupa tions are opening up to women, so many dislike housowork, so many think it to be beneath them, that it is almoet impossible to get n girl to help a far mer's wife. And so tho work presBes on the wife and mother day after day, and many farmers seo no help for it. But the wife must havo rest or brenk down, and so we urge every ono to see that the wife has a vacation. Get along some way for at least a week without ber. Lct her go to some quiet plnce, somewhero, anywhero to get real rest nnd recreation. It may add years to her Hfe. Think of this, plan for it, do it, and you will nover be sorry. When to Cut Grnss for Hay. Eds. Country Gentleman: After con cluding and publishing experiments some eighteen years ago thnt showed that between blossom and maturity of grass, especially of timothy, there was a marked increase of growtb, and that from blosBom to seed formation there was rnther n gain than a loss of nutri tive effect, I was frequently rallied by the argument in favor of .early-cut hay, deemed conclusive, that animnls do better on June graes than on hay, and better than on later grazed pastures. Tho fact that June is tho great growing month for the grass crop, when a sur plus of graas exists, that ilies do not harass at that time, and other factors, were overlooked. I am remined of the flood of criti ciems by my fourth year's experienco with cows at grass. My cows now (June 21), on abundant grass, nro giv ing twelvo or more cans or twenty per cent lees milk than on May 31, when yet on winter feed. Such has been my annunl cxperienco since returning to the farm, whether tho cows were fed grain or not. Fncts that have been ac cumulating since these trials by tho writer, at tho Now Hampshiro College of Agriculture, are moro and more brenklng tho force of this nnd other similar old arguments favoring early cutting of crops, hay included, nnd those favoring greenness. In the light of modern investigations, we must asBumo that much of ino ia creased milk flow and growth nf llvn. siock on uuno pasture,"como not bo much from tho early stago of growth and of greenness ns from the fact that the winter Btnrvation rations of tho fnthers who launched tho argument were succeeded by a period of greater pleuty and greater warmth. Now tho wind-swept interior barns of old times are replaced by protected stables, and grain rations added to more generouB rations of hay aro disputing with pas tures the question, as decided by Juno grass, concerning tho right degrec of maturity of crops, nnd have broken much of the force of tho nrgument in favor of greenness. Hnying is upon us, and so iB the old argument in favor of early cutting of hay; even the old rcnsoniug based on a half viow of scientilic data is mado tho support of early cutting. It is not my purpose to review tho facts of Bcienco that bear on this question. It may now at least safely bo Baid thnt it is not at all clenr that scienco teaches thnt May grass or grass prior to bloom and oven in bloom is more valunblo than hay at early seed formation. The ono grand nrgument of ao-called scienco in favor of early cutting that alarger per centage of protein is secured is based on the gratuitous assumption that na turo has failed to put in tho grass crop the ono great resourco of wild grami nivorous anlmals, onough of protoin. This argument overlooks the influenco of environment, nnd nssumcs that this class of anlmals is not ndapled to tho food it rccoives, for Juno grass is but for n briof period of tho year. It was formulated beforo it had been discov ered that tho nitrogonous matter of young grass is but partly organlzed into protein. This train of thought suggeated by tho rosponso of tho cows at tho milk pail whilo on Juno grnBB is by no meuns intended to encourago lato cutting of hay, but rather a conservntivo or middlo ground practico. Trials at tho Now Ilampshlro, Maine. Pennsylvania, nnd Wisconsin Stato Collcges fail to support tho dogmatic assertions of both mon of practice and men of scienco in favor of cutting hny in enrly bloom or prior to onrly formation of seed for tho timothy crop, bo far as its nutritlvo effect is con corncd. As oll of tho trials agreo iu flnding an incroased growth of timothy to n matorinl extcnt betwcon bloom nnd seed formation auiountlng in sonio trlnls to twonly-flvo per cent to thirly por cont, it would nppear on tho faco of it to indicnto, in viow of tho roton tion of cquivalont if not suporior nu tritlvo effect. thnt timothy should tot bo cut untii tho seed is well formcd nnd approaching tho milk stngo. For tunntoly ns a mcans of developiug tho mcntal acumon and equilibrium of tho farmcr, this docs not follow, for other factors interpose. Tho greater palatnbloncss of tho enrly cut hay in ducos greater consumptloti, nnd thoro by n very heavy increasoof the food of oxcess or that abovo a mero maintenanco ration. So far as.definltcly known pal atableness is not a nutritlvo quality, or does not add directly to nutritlvo ef fect, simply inducing greator consump tion of food. It is impossiblo for scienco, it seems to the writer, to flx tho precieo date at which grasB should be cut. I hold tho following proposition sets forth fairly the position of tho question: First, thnt timothy hny cut nt seed formation will yield twenty to twcnty-flvo por cent moro than when cut in bloom; second, that n pound of timothy cut nt seed formation contains moro availoblo nu trition than a pound cut at bloom ; third, that timothy cut in bloom is moro pal- atablo and thereforo will bo eaten in greater quantity, and thoreforo in this rcspect moro economically; and fourth, thnt tho point nt which the sacriQce of palntabloness becomes great enough to overcomo greater yieids is ono for prac ticc to dctcrmiue, if it is at all deter minable, and that this point will vary with feeding conditiona, including tho akill of the feeder. I hold thnt, under skillful management, as a rulo it is cconomy to let timothy pasa out of bloom beiorc cutting, but not to ap proximato closely to seed ripening, tho exact stago beintr unknown and un- knowable without flrst knowing how it is to bo fed. My advice is to avoid either extreme of cutting in early bloom or tuii seeu. j. w. banborn, in uoun' try Qentlemen. Kceping Milk from Sourlng, This is the klud of weathcr in which tho butter maker, at the creamery, hns uiB iiie neariy worneu our, or nim. Some patronB bring milk that is too sour to Beparate good, and he has not tne nerve to retuse lt. He fears that ho will 1080 the patron, ao ho keepa on, day after day, tnking tho milk that clogs his Beparator, compelline him to etop nnd clear it out, hoping vainly that the patron will do better, or thnt me weatner wni De cooier. It is very easy to say thnt the butter mnker should reject all milk that had not been properlv cared for. and bv so doing compel the patronB to take better care of their milk, and consequently maKe more money, Decause or tne bet ter separntion that can be had with sweet milk. This is, no doubt, the right way, and the only way to do justice by the pat rons who do deliver their milk in good condition, for all tho patrons havo to share equally in the loas caused bv tho reduced quantity or quality caused by tne miiK oi ine careiess patron. But it takeB some courago to do this tthen the creamery is surrounded bv other creameries but three miles dis- tant in all directions, where the natron would bohailed with delight, and where ho would go if there was nny fault iound with his milk. We visited n creamery, a few days .ago, where just this stato of things existeu. Ono man brought a full load, the milk of aeveral patrons, one hot morning, and more than half that load wns unflt to receive. The butter maker, who was pnrt owner. anid, very mildly, to the driver, "I wish you would tell " naming several patrons, " lo tako botter caro of their milk." The driver replied, with a goou ueai oi vim: "xnat rnufe is all right. If you don't want tho milk I bring I will tako it over to the other creamery. Thoy'll tako it and be glad to get it." That settled it; tho butter maker had to give vont to his feelings after he was alono, in langungo ho did HGt wish others to hear, j.u would bo much boiler for all paf ties concerned, if the milk wns prop erly cared for immediately after milk ing, and kept in cold water till time to start for tho creamery, and it really does not take much time. Wo believe if patrons were instructed in this mat ter they could seo that it would bo to their advantage, and would practico tnking better cnro ot their milk. There nro two tliings to do, and they are (1) to aerate, and (2) to cool it. A good way to aerate it is to have a tin vcssel, something liko a largo pail with straight Bidea, with a great number of very small holes in tho bottom. This aerator is set up ono and ono-half or two feet above tho can, and when straiued into it the milk trickleB, in very small streams, throueh the holes, and is well aircd ns it fnlls into tho can. Now if the can is set in cold wator, which is as deep as tho milk in tho can, andjstirred up onco after half nn hour, it will keop all right till the next fore noon, when it will reach tho creamery in tho best condition overy timo.

The Nccesslty ot Knonlcdge, t'nre and Consciencc. In thc handling of milk, there aro three prime requisites, which go a great waya to mako the milk valuable. All three belong, not to tho milk, but to the milkman. They are: (1) Aknowl edge of right milk conditions. (2) A willingnoBs to bestow tho proper caro on the milk. (3) A conscieuce. To show how important it is to the milk consumer, that the milk producer Bhould posscBs these three qualiflca tions, wo will atate that in a little town in Ohio there has recently been a score or more of deaths, from tjphoid fever, all on the milk route of ono man, who watered hia cows, and washed his milk veesels from a well, that on investiga tion, pioved to be rank with typhus germs. Now, had that man had the necessa ry knowlcdgo of right milk conditions, or rather of the condition of his well water, had he put intelligence on these questions, in place of ignorance, it would havo saved a score of lives. Suppoaing that he had the requisite knowledge, ho must have been lacking in care and consciencc. Every man who produces milk, whether for a factory, creamery, or for faniily consumption, has the lives of his fellowmen in his keeping. Thero is no fluid, used as a food, that can bo made more dangerous to human lifo than milk, when produced by a man who is either ignorant, careiess, or without good consciencc. Hoard's Dairyman. Thk total corn land now being culti vated by American farmers is an em pire in ltBolf, double as it is the total surface area of Turkey in Europe, and flve times as largo as the whole of Greece. It has been frequently pointed out that tho selling price of corn has little intluence upon the area devoted to tho crop. Less than twenty per cent of the crop leavos tbe farm in the shape of grain, tho great bulk being marketed on the hoof. It is tho American crop and when Bold in tho shape of beef, pork and mutton it iB tho paying pro duct of American agriculture.
