One man Is stationed at the reservoirs to watch the indicators and operate the pumps when necessary, and the other passes along the stalls, at taching the teat cups and starting the flow of milk. At intervals are placed receiving cans, which are connected with the suction apparatus and also to the teat cups. Direct pipes suspended overhead connect the cans with the vacuum boiler, and the teat cups are also provided with a vacuum arrange ment, which prevents the suction from taking too strong a hold on the teat. & WflOr.EiAT.E COIV-»m,KEIt.

Those on the la subsoil were shorter and were obt) to branch out a number of side w making them hard to handle andl vnluable for sugar making. Theji grow more out of the ground.
