offered prayer, and the address of wel

Major Richmond welcomed the dairy

had been informed that the present gov

of tile ex-governors iero members of the.

predicted that the farmers of the State
would continue to grasp the opportunities
afforded them In a wny characteristic of

P. L. Davis of North Pomfret, the

last year and expected to pay $700 this

to $1,712..'!'! nml the expenditures were

D. 11. Morse of Randolph gave the
presldi nt's annual nddros-i, predicting
many bright things for the dairymen
and speaking in high terms of the as
sociation's growth. He congratulated
the members on the standing of the
association at the commencement of Its
SRth year. It goes a long way towards
showing the prosperity of the Ver
mont farmer, he said, that Vermont
Industries did not feel very keenly
the recent money pnnlc. Agricultural
Industries have always kept pace with
those of other classes. The vast
wealth produced by the Vermont
farmer furnishes wealth for all other
Industries. There is one thing that
the farmer needs and that is co-opern-tlon
nml organization. The Dairy
men's association Is a fine example of
this. The speaker spake in high terms

MKANINC OF DAIRY TYPF.
First we must have In mind what a
dairy type means a proper realization
that to f-ecure this type nieins probably
a large pail of a mini's years. We must
expect to make many failures and only
then will we have a proper conception
of the absolute folly of tryinR to cross
bnuls. as for example the Hnlstetn and
the (luerniey, with the hope that the
W.-ue will yield both the Holstoin
quantity and the Ouenusey quality.
The first breed Improvements must
have been noeomp'.lshed by tilling certain
traits in a strain or br ed. The first
htoeders had poor success In producing
milk cows because of lack of merit In
the sires. To save time and trouble the
beginner should take up the work at the
point whei. come of our most careful
bleeders h.i.e brought It. All over tho
countiy an well established herds from
which he ' in safely make bis selection.
The calf that N to be :i Rood dairy cow

to be bril wdh an unquestionably strong
dairy record as an inheritance. If the
breed, r Is abb- to obtain cows of pun;
blood, carrying -trains of high produ---Ing
quality, and will ie a male of rich
inheritance, not rah in the show ring,
but In dairy work, breeding dairy type
animals Is a work eay of accomplish
ment if he has suffut'iit gumption.
OF.T RID OF TIIH POOR COWS.
Building un the da.n herd Is not so
easv to tho man who ..as not the things
reailv Hindu to his band. It is this n
nresentatlve of the great American class
nf farmers, who Is ailng his bread In
the sweat of his fa.", w.io can 111 afford
to make mistakes. II" H the average
hm'. hnnrimt. xt rim tiling burden bearer
who ever should haw . onccrn that any
mcssaRC that is sent inav roach him. To
this man I hnvo heutd given the advice
to sell unci invest the proceeds In as
many good cows as they will buy, but
buying Is the very last way to get good
ones. My advice to such a man would
1. to cot Into shane to feed those cows
a irood full ration tor a whole year.
v cow mav be better than she looks
or worse than she looks, the only way
to tell one. Is to live with her. Cot rid
of the poor ones, they take the bread
out of your mouth, but the more promis
ing ones mav surprise you with Judicious
feeding. Put them to the test, shelter
them from storms; he kind to them;
don't try to half stano them on a half
dry pasture but Rlvn them thn full round
year ration. Send your scrub bull to
the hutcher and get the best bull of your
breed that you can buy. The dairy cow
ls n wonderful creature. From the food
she ents she must maintain her physical
well bcliitf, nourish her young nnd film
ish milk for her matter.
