M )Bt of tbo old barns wcre opcn in front of tbe cattlc, tbo feed floor was opcn to tbe raftcrs nnd nll tbe big cracks in tbe bnys and ecaffolds, and sucb a Btable was like a rolrigcrator. It would frceze tbo manure into solid cbunks, and a crowbar and pickax bad to bo ueed in cleaning it out. Make tbe stablo warm bebind, uec cbaff and every dcvico to do it. Tbo objcction to cbbff is tbat it makes too good quar ters for micc and rnts. Dry Bawdust is better in tbat respect. Kcep tbe frost ont in some woy.

Go into some of tbo modern barna and you feel at once thatthey are too wnim, too close. It is fnr cneier to make n Btable warm tbau it is lo give the cattlo proper ventilation. It ecems to be tbe most puzzling tbing to keep cattle warm and yet give tbem pure air. The plan advocated in the Watcdman somo timo ago by II. L. Bixby lookB like an ideal one. It was briifly to bave tbo stablo as warm and close ns you plcnee, and tben let tbe cow's head project into the pure cold air. Some tbing like an adjuBtable curtaln was to be faBtened around ber neck to keep the cold from bcr body. This would hi'lp to ward off tuberculosis and eolvc tbe ventilation problem to perfcction. But the cow could not bave wnter in front of ber in tbo Btable to drink as it would ,be Bure to iretze in veiycold wiather, unless tbo fctding floor wbb made warm. Tbat would bring up again tbo old vexed quesiion of how to secure watmtb and ventilation. Tho Fecdiiifr Stnudards. It would pay every dairyman to be como tboroughly conversant with tbo modern feeding Blnndnrds. A great deol haa been writton about tbem, mucb bas been snid at the farmors' in stitutes about feeding, but bundreds of farmers do not daro to go it alono. It looks liko a very Bimplo thing to tako n bulletin nnd mako up n woll balanccd ration, but tbo grcat majority of farm ors do not nttempt it. Tboy ftcl tbo need of some guide nnd n grcat many of tbem inatcad of sitting down and figuring out n balanced ration from tho fcedB tbey bava and can buy, sit down and write to eotno cditor, BBkingbim to do tbo work for tbem. So it bas bo come a common tbing in certain farm papers to seo scores of queations bb wbat combinationB of feeds to uso in glven cascs. Tbls is doubtleBB all right but it would bo good practico for every cattle fccder to mako up rations from bis fccds, and thcn tcst tbem by fctd ing tbe cows, wtighing and tcsting tho milk, and going into the flno work of cattle fetding. Thcro is usually timo for bucIi work in tho winter, and most of it can bo dono in tbo houso whoro it I warm, partofit in the long evcningB. It would pay vastly botter than hold inu n cbair down in pomo vlllugo storo or worso place, would trnin hand,cyo and mind. Ilt ally eucb practico is wbat ovury modern dairyman needs. If n dozcn or less farmers would joln to gelbor in this work, got cacb n Bpring acalo to woigb tbo milk nt wholcsale prlcoB, n Bnbcock toBtor to bo ownod nnd UBod by tbo wbolo club in common nnd tbon (if thoy do not alrendy bnvc thom) writo to tbo Ezporimont Stntion nt Burlington for informntlon as to whero thoy can get tbo noodod books or bullotina wbicb tcll bow to toat milk and bow to mnko up intlons. Tbon tboy would bavo somotbing worth talk lng nbout, somotbing thnt would givc thora n good stnrt in tbo way of gotting bold of somo of tbo good thiugs bolng brought out by tbo ngrlcultural collcgcs and csperlment Btatlons. It docs sccm too bad to bavo bo mnny farmors loso all tbo good of tbe milllons of dollars bcing oxpondcd by tbo governmont in obtniningnnd giving out tbo most valuablo informntlon, and all for tbo lnck of gotting started on tbo rond to lcnrnlng. Somo men nre bo constilutcd tbnt it would bo very bnrd for tbem to lcnrn mucb from books or papcrs, but wbnt moat men need is to hnvo the starch of prcjudice taken out of tbem, tbnt sort of tbing in a fnrmor wbicb mnkcs him flgbt tbni which is for hls greateet good. Wit ncBs tbo nttcmpt to nbolish tbo bonrd of ugriculturo, nnd nll tbnt wbich shows tho lack of power to apprccintc n good tbing, becnuBo it is in tho lim of montal teacbiug, of settlng one'b brainB at work to bclp and ekillf ull guido the hands. It is caBlcr in one senso to throw a forkful or two of haj into tbo mangor, dump in n little meal nnd brnn nnd thcn go nt somctblng oIbo, or go to sil nround doing nnd lcarning notbing good; it may bo n lot casier to do tbua tban to know just wbnt you aro fecding nnd wbat cffec' it is baving on tbo milk and buttor fat; but wben n mnn studieB nnd cxperi mcntB and lcarns, bo gets nn enjoy ment wbicb tbo carelceB old-fasbioncd fnrmor knows nothing of. Try to make a stnrt in uaing your brainB this wintcr, and if you bave never dono bo beforo, moko up your mind to get some of tbo good tbere is in tbo work of tbe stations and the like. Bnirjiug in lYIntcr. Winter is coming and it ia now sca sonable to talk about winter dairying. Along in tbe middlo of winter tbe dairyman very oiten complains tbat tbc business does not pay, and especially if blB cows were fresh in tho apring. Tbe cmall quantity of butter seems in signiQcant, tbough it sella for nlmost twico ns much as in tbo Bummcr. Yet groceries nnd otber supplies must be purchaeed in tbo wintcr as well as in tbe Bummer, and if we let tbo dairy run down wo must draw upon tbe bank account or run in debt, and in eitber caBe tbe farm gets tbe credit of not pay ing. If wo manago to bavo fresh cowb in the f all , feed tbem liberally on roilk producing food, give freo access to pure water, keep tbem in comfortable, bealtby, well-ventilated quartera, kcep tbe milk nt an even temperaturo ot sisty to sixty-Qve degrces, churn often enougb and witb cream nt tbo right tcmperature, plenty of good buttor can be made nll winter, nnd it commands a a good price usually. Keep tho stnblc tboroughly clean, dry, well lighted, well ventilated, and comfortable for n person to stay in. This is not expen sive. It is tbe ncglectcd, poorly-rnan-oged Btable tbat coats. Cowsconflned to the Btablo twenty-two to twenty tbree hours a day muat be well bedded, and tbo Btable muBt be well drained. Somo good absorbent must bo provided to tako up tbe ammonia and used freo ly. Land plastcr can be used for thif vry prnfltably. Dry eartb or muck is good. Ench cow should bave 1,000 cu bic feel of air spaco. Cow Btnblcs ought to be nino or ten feet high Winter dairying is no business for a lazy man or one wbo will neglect it for ai y reaBon. l ut for the actlvo, care ful, painstaking man, wbo will attend to it every day and keep everytblng ship-sbapo snd moving, it is alwnys proQtablc. EnBilugo or roots is thc priruo food (or winter, but if you bave no silo or roots, ubo elops mnde of mill products, clenn, brigbt dover bay or well-preserved corn-fodder, and if shred ded it will be all tbe better. If you are not prepared to do nll this, do not de pend upon winter dairying for proQt. Ohio Fnrmor. HOOD'S PILLS curo Llvor Hls, Ell lousnoss, Indlgostlon, Headncho.

If n dnlry band fulli sick tho supply of milk from tho cows wlll often dlmlulsli bc cnuso tho onimal can rotaln or parl witb itB milk, and not ylcld it to a Btran- ger.

Tho geuoral opinioii is tbat during pregnnucy, tbo cow ought to bo loft to acomplelo Btnto of repose, nnd fcd only nfter being mllked." flero is Bomething worth thinking nbout. It is truo tbat tho quantiiy of milk ia to a great cxtont under tho con trol of the cow. Tboro is roason to bo llovo tbat oven witbln limits tbo por contago of butter fnt is under tho samo control, and houco it is a very impor tnnt quostion how to pereuado tbo cow lo givo down tho quantiiy of milk, nnd of tbo licliost poaaiLlo to hor. Wo say "porBUade" for tbere is no way possiblo of forcing hor. Thopointis to concen trato bor attention on tho ono nll-impor-tant mattor of giving n full llow, with tho full percentago of buttor fat. Tbo abovo we beliovo to bo a correct stato ment of tho known fncts in the cnec, but thero is room for n wide diffvrenco of opinion betwcen men nnd men nnd cows and cows as to tbe bcst method of perBuasinn. It 1b ngreed tbat tbere ia no persuasion in tho boot beel or tho milk stool applied on tho back, nor is thero anv bencQi in ubIiic cdbs words, nlthouuh wo bavo board it said tbat wbiRtling and tho "mcrry heart that doetb good like n mediclne" nro potent witb tho cow whilcmilking is going on. IlavinK forKOtteu how to whistle, wo dou'i know how that ia. Tho point to be (kcided is will tho cow civo hor mind to tho business of eiving down wben sho has a flno mcesof feed before her, or is tbe nttitude of impationt waltitiK and exptctancy tbo-bestpor-BUader? Wo cun see at once tbat if tho cow is cxpectint: feed and does not get it, Blio is not likely to keep her mind on the Biinject of Kivins dowrj; If, bow ever, Bho has been nccustomed to havo an elcua'it feed as soon aa milking is over wo would expect her to give duo attention and give down ns fast bb pos- Bible. Tho main thing, tt seems to us, is how to cet the cow's undivided atten tion to tbe supremo work of tho mo motit, tbat of giving down ricb milk and lotB of it. Havo our readers ever tested tho dif forent mtthods in n tcneral way, and, if bo, wbat bave been tbo results? Is it really a mattcr of ruii-' importanco than it nppears to bo at 1 rat bight. Wo tbink it quite true that with tbe odvent of the new milkcr cows may begin to fail in tbeir milk, bolh in quantity and in richncss. We are quit sure tbere are some mou who wouid put the cows dry by tbeir bad metbods of milking. Wo can rcadily see how a badlempered man or a profane man migb't decreaso tho yield twenty flve or thirty per cent. Tbo milker must be "cn rapport;" tbat is, in full sjmpnthy with tho cow, if she is to do her best nt ber pnil. Now can that sympathy, that cooperation, that combination of efforts for the ac complisliment of a dt-flnito purpose bo best' securcd by nllowing ber to eat whilo being milked or not? Tbat is tbe question on wbich we would liko to bave the experienco and nbBervalion of our rcnders. WullncVa Farmer. An Excellent Fnrm Pnpcr. Wo refer to tho Pracltcal Farmer.

Make Butter to Sult tho Consnmcr, Ono thlng sbould always be borno ia rriintl bv tho person mnking butter to Bell. Tbo butter Ib for somebody ele to eat, and it is for your intcrest to suit them, whetber it just suits your tastt or not. Ilabit bas a great deal to do with our likes and dislikea. You may havo been accustomed to Bwect-creatn butter; if bo, you probably like tbat best. Or, you may have got used to ealing butter mado from very rip crcnm, and the butter not wasbcd to expel tho buttermilk, causing it to have a very decided fiUvor and taste, and so you look upon flne, dtlicate flav ored butter bb insipld. Or, you may like little or no Balttng or bigh Bslting; light color or bigh color. But all thie is of no con-cquenco. It is no mattcr wbat you like. You want to make it to suit your cuBtomers and jou want your cuBtoraers to ou tnose wno are ame anu willing to pay a good price for what suits tbem. If tbo customer wants eweet-cream butter, make it; if unsalt ed, make it bo; if be desires it bigh salted, salt it bigb, and bo on. Alwaye make it tbe samo for tbe cuslomers. They are getting tastes formed which you cnn ma o it prcfltable to gratify. It is not the provinco of the maker of diiry butter to try to educate tbe tastes of the people who buy butter, but rath er to cater to their tastes when be flnds out wbat tbey are. If one is making butter to puton tbe geueral market ha wants to make what the market dc mands and will pay the best price for. The beBt way to learn tbe market de mand is to bave tbo butter inspected by an expert judge who is a dealer and knows wbat takes best in tbe market. Ask him to criticise it and tell you just wbat be tbiuka of it; and don't get angry at wbat be tells you, but try to proflt by wbat be says, Tbe object ot thii article ls to belp farmers to make butter as tbe best paying cuBtomers ia tbe general market demand. shortness of breath a sensation of dryness and heat HALE'S HONEY OF in tne throat.
