The exact loca tion of tlic remarkable gold find re ferred to in The Statesman some weeks ago is between 12 and 15 tulles nortii east of tliis place oil the Hay fork of Moore creek and about two miles from the Banner road. The discovery was made last fall by Leo Fnternaher and partners. They kept til«- find a secret, as they wished to thoroughly explore the ground nr.d make their locations secure, the rich ,,esa of the rock causing them to feet there would be a rush into the district whenever the facts should be known. The secret was Jealously guarded until the discoverers were ready. The latter have secured what they desire and the location of the find has been tn a de known.

Dockstader - » New Story. Lew Dockstader. the minstrel man. went away from Washington the last time he was there with a new story to tell. He was walking along Pennsyl vania avenue, down near the capitol, and he met a gorgeously arrayed col ored man. From his head down, the glory of the man decreased as does the intensity of light. Inversely ns the square of the distanced His hat was superb, his coat fine, his trousers nn'v so-so, and his shoes mere debris, but below his gleaming'shirt front was a double breasted, low cut, white waist coat. "Hold on." su'd Dockstader. "Don't you know you're not allowed to wear a vest like that before 6 o'clock?" The gorgeous colored person paused. "Go on. white man." said he. "I don't 'low- nobody to write no time table for my clothes." ; j 1 | , j j j ^ ' j QUALITY OF CHEESE. Effect of Varions Breen Forage Feed« on Its Flavor. The following Is the summary of bul letin No. 11Ü published by the Wiscon sin experiment station, which showsl the effect on the flavor of cheese when cows are fed certain kinds of green j forage Rape, if fed m limited quantities to J milking cows, is likely to impart to the I milk a taint which will 1 m 1 Imparted to j the cheese and cannot he eliminated by i any art know n to tin* cheeseniakor at j the present time. Cheese made from rape fed milk pre sent-, both offensive odors and tastes. The longer the period of feeding Is extended the better quality of the cheese produced with reference to fla vor. indicating that the systems of the cows producing the milk tended to con form to the peculiarities of the feed and tlius eliminate at least a portion of the noxious flavors. The flavor of the product from morn lug's milk wheu the feeding was done Immediately after milking was of a de cidedly improved quality over that from the evening's milk where the feeding was done shortly before milk ing. The body, texture, color and general makeup of the cheese are not affected in any manner by the feeding of rape to milk cows for eheesemaking pur poses. When cabbage was fed to milk cows disagreeable flavors were always Im parted to the chee-e. and these bad fla vies were iutensllled as the ripening advanced. Milk front cows fed exclusively upon g.,,. î .-lover produced cheese having a low, tint flavor, which Anally became sharp and repugnant. (iris'll forage corn when fed to cows produced ait excellent quality of milk f >r choose. Tit turc, with clean, high stages of the ripening. esc was of fine tex flavor at all , j | j The tow's Best Weeks. There is a great variation in the liest week of a cow's lactation, in different co\v> and in the same cow. It has been found that cows make their best; records during the first ten weeks ol' their lactation, and many caws make their best record during the first month after coming fresh. Most cows give their largest quantity of milk during the third week and make the largest butter production during the second week. Cows scent to reach their high est butter production before they reach their largest flow of milk. Feed I* tin* Main Tiling. No matter how skilled we may lie in breeding and making nicks, crosses and cut crosses, (lie main tiling with the cow is Iter feed, and unless she and her offspring are fed enough and well the granddaughter will be it scrub and dear at most any price.—Jason. -O HINTS ON FEEDING 0 --O Not tn licit conics from llte udder of ti cow that is not first put Into iter mouth. To own a well bred dairy cow with perfect form and every appear ance of a great producer does not mean that she will produce well with out the best of feed and care. Breed ing in the dairy cow enables her to make better use of the raw material given her. Tin» good cow well fed and managed " ill usually pay as much profit us two or three common cows, and in some cases it lias been found one c.iw yielded as much actual profit as wis obtained from ten others In the herd. Itoota us Hairy Feed. In our corn raising states compara tively little attention is paid to the feeding of roots. European and many Fauadian farmers make much of them as a feed for cattle. Roots are less desirable for the feeding steer than for the dairy cow, as they tend to form a more watery carcass. This is not so detrimental to the dairy , cow, as good results from their feeding in Jer sey and England attest. Feeding Grain Willi Pasture. Experiments at the New York sta tion show that the benefits of feeding the grain were not all realized tbe sea son in which it xvas fed, but that It rendered the animals capable of great er production the following season. It also shows that for each pound of grain fed an a extra pound of milk was secured. Knowing the value of each, we can easily compute whether the feeding of grain was or was not a paying practica» The experiiueuters estimated that the feeding of grain ; when pasture Is good is neither a pay ing nor a losing investment, but that it would pay if the pasture were poor. Feeding the Calves. Do not put the calves in pasture to be tortured l>y tiles and to suffer from ] the hot sun. The proper place Is a roomy, airy box stall with the windows slightly darkened during the heat of the day. Give a fresh lot of early cut clover hay every day. and remove any 'hat Is not eateu before more Is put In. .Vhen calves are kept in the stable, they should be given now and then a piece of sod with the earth attached.— Farm Journal. Two or Three Meal* For Cowa. During the past winter an experiment was conducted in England to find out ! whether It would he more profitable to give three meals a day Instead of two, as had been the custotn. A num ber of cows were given two meals a day and another lot three meals. At 1 the close of the experiment the follow i lug conclusion was draxfrn: That there is practically no difference In the amount of feed consumed or in the amount of milk produced between two or three feeds a day. The former Is tfch most profitable way, however, on acooant of Involving leea labor and **m«» Farmers A Ira -ate. j | 1 ....................... .....HU I H i , ,.. ...........
