Owing to the great amount of in

the introduction and use of a pure

with good breeding and rigid selec

Your Neighbor's Cow.
Every progressive dairyman should
take an interest in the kind of cows
his neighbor keeps. He should' do
this, first from the unselfish stand
point of wishing good (o his neighbor,
and also because in many ways it. is
to his own advantage for his neighbor
to have good cows. If he and bis
neighbor are both taking milk to the
same creamery or the same cheese
factory it is to his advantage to have
his neighbor take to the institution
as much milk as possible, ihat tbe cost
of changing it into a marketable pro
duct may be as light as possible. If
the farmer is making butter and send
ing it away to be sold, the more his
neighbor can send away the better for

Result of Dirt.
During recent years there has been
much complaint of the "fishy" smell
of butter, and all kinds of 'suggestions
have been made as to its possible ori
gin. it is not, however, believed that
this is a new difficulty, but that it is
an old trouble under a new name. It
is altogether probable that the flavor
or smell is named "fishy" more to ac
commodate a vivid imagination than
anything e'.sd. Xot that, there is not
something after tbe nature of "fishi
ness," but thai, it is not enough pro
nounced to bo readily described by
every one as fishy. In fact, some have
dortifnated it "stale," and oth'ers "tal
lowy." One expert says that by what
ever naire it is described, it is tlie re
sult of dirty methods in tho dairy, and
that if the methods are all correct the

this applies as much to their food as
to anything else. A change of feed
frequently means a falling off in the

and this occurs, too, in relation to the

considered better for cows than June

Utilizing Manure.
The advantage to land which is said
to oomevfronr -keeping live.stock On it
will be largely neutralized if the win

carefully. saved and applied to the
fields that need it. And. it is to call
attention to this fact that, where cir
cumstances will allow, hauling out ma

stated that the liquid portion of .an
animal's excrement exceeds the solids
in fertilizing, value. The records of
the Wisconsin station indicate that in
cow manure there is ,20 lbs. of nitro
gen excreted daily in the solid portion
and .24 lbs. in the urine. In view of
this, a. little thought on the subject
will convince anyone that to throw the
manure out of the stable door and
leave it in piles there must be a great
waste, by reason of the leaching away
of the liquids. They enter the ground
in the immediate vicinity of the pile,
and are practically lost for the earth

Independence of the Farmer.
The farmer should feel proud of his
profession, as it is one of the most
useful and necessary occupations. He
does not sit on the ragged edge of
doubt as to the permanency of his
position. He studies the laws of na
ture and derives maintenance from her
bounteous stores. When times are
hard and laborers are clamoring for
work, he has plenty of business to oc
cupy his time. If the farmer com
mences with small capital his invest
ment is sure, to increase, for the
earth often rewards the husbandman
an hundredfold. The proper manage
ment of small undertakings leads to
larger enterprises. The well-tilled
farm produces abundantly, and the
farmer always has a surplus to sell
-that makes him independent even in
strenuous times. The farmer is the
foundation of the commercial prosper
ity of the country.—Barnum's Midland
Deep and Shallow Plowing.
Deep or shallow plowing is a sub
ject. of perennial discussion and often
fierce controversy some parties there
to insisting that one style of plowing
is the proper thing under all circum
stances, and the others claiming the
opposite. As a matter of fact each
side is doubtless right from its view
point. and wrong from the viewpoints
of its opponents. Deep or shallow
plowing is good or ill.according to con
ditions of soil, in mechanical structure,
in the. plant food it contains, the crop
to be grown, etc. In short, the hard
and fact rules in farming thsit are
safe to follow at all times are so few
that they cut but little figure in good
farm management.
New Farm Motive Power.
No more significant change is taking
place in American agriculture than the
extent to which different kinds of mo
tive power are taking the place of
men and animals. The use of the
traction engine and automobile in the
place of the horse on the country
road, the employment of gasoline,
steam, wind and electric power to op
erate niower3, threshers, plows, feed
cutters, corn huskers, and dairy ma
chinery are illustrations of epoch
making changes that are now going
on on every modern American farm.
On one ranch in California there is
