It is safe to say there are ten thousand
tons of good hay, that took weeks of

to the first fire that comes along, and
soon the frost will prevent the plowing
of fire breakes. Take warning.

Cold Water Pirst.
It is quite a common practice in wash
ing milk utinsels to start with hot water.
This is not the best method. In boiling
milk a skin forms on it. The hot water
tike wise hardens this onto the sides of
the milk vessel, making it'hard to re
move. The better way is to first rinse
the utinsel in cold water,'and it ahould
be rinsed as soon as it is emptied of
milk, or else the milk will dry and then
rinauur will not thoroughly remove it.
