CAPACITY IN COWS.
External Siena of a Good Milker That
Xo Buyer Caa Afford to Slight
When a farmer is about to buy a
mower, a reaper or a cultivator, he
looks careful'y about him to find a
machine that is best fitted in shape,
ize and mechanism to do the work
required. When it comes to buying or
raising- a dairy cow too many neglect
to consider whether the cow, from her
general appearance, seems to be fitted
to do good work in the dairy or not.
Xow, it is to be admitted that yen
cannot tell certainly whether a cow
is a deep, rich milker from her gen.
cral appearance; but still, so large f
percentage of the high quality cows
of the land have certain external
signs that have come to be regarded
as the marks of a good cow that it is
folly to overlook these marks when
selecting cows for one's herd. One of
these special signs that is extremely
important may be comprehended un
der the term "capacity."
I have reproduced here the outlines
of two cows that ar3 illustrated by
photographic cuts in the last Hood
Farm catalogue of Jersey cattle, since
they bring out in a typical manner

You cannot expect to make much but

where depth is needed where the ma

The cow that has little depth from her

just in front of the udder has never

also to see an udder like those in the
cuts. They stamp the cow at once as
a producer of large quantities of milk,
and these udders may well be taken
as model examples, not only in re

reading: "Here perished the last wild
fly. July 8. 19?" Science shakes her
head moodily. Pressed for a categor
ical answer, she says something about
screens, hearing which the housewife
smacks her hands together and lets
them fall despairingly into her lap.
"Screens?" she groans. "Screens?
Haven't I got screens up all over the
house? And just look at it! Just look
at that chandelier! You know it never,
never will come off brass. I'd like to
know where they get in at. I'd just like
to know." And then she takes a paper
in each hand and flaps it and makes un
eraaeful leaps up to knock the impu
dent beasts from the ceiling. She drives
them out into the dining-room and
thence out into the kitchen, and so on
into the open air. The flies scurry and
dodge and flee back on one side of the
room while she is battling on the other.
They get their breath back and ready
for another run, but she has no rest,
writes Harvey Sutherland, in Ainslee's.
After she has wrought herself into a
gasping perspiration and shut the
house all up there are just as many
flies as before stippling the chandelier
and buzzing: "A-a-ah! Did you ever

"Leggo now! Legge o me! Leggo!
Teacher! Make him let me be!" and
then it begins to scream and fight. It is
most entertaining to watch the tragedy
if you are of a vindictive and revenge
ful spirit. The poor creature strug
gles and struggles, each effort bringing
nearer the moment when it shall sink

greedily. "Christians to the lions!"
cried the mob in Xero's day. "Flies to
the sticky paper!" cry the moderns.
One poor fellow near the edge, with
supermuscan strength drags himself
free to the plain paper, and as he pauses
for breath ere he can plume his gummy
wings for flight, Kenneth catches him
and thrusts him back into his doom.

unfunny affair. Alcohol wKl dissolve

she experiences headaches, dizziness, faintness, and exhibits
an abnormal disposition to sleep, pains in the back and lower

such a time the greatest aid to nature is Lvdia E. Pink-
