NEW WISCONSIN BARN. I It* Constructio E Ne a iv id a Ha Bee Care Considered. he Wisconsin experiment station people have built a new barn after studying carefully the best to be found in various parts of the country. have decided to use metal in making the stalls, and a sample stall is shown in the cut. he stable is arranged for 36 cows, 18 on each side of the center passage, with the rows of cows facing this center passage, is feet wide* so that a team may be driven through to feed the crops taken direct ly from the fields. Th stalls are con structed of ga^pipe posts with a frame work of gates and panels of channel iron, supporting ames of No 7 woven steel wire. In the picture,. shows the framework extending to the length of A NE W COW STALL, each row of stalls to support the front of the side panels is a swinging panel, which may be moved to suit the length of the cow thus a small cow may be forced to stand well back in her stall, over the gutter. The side panels of the stall are hinged so as to accom modate the milkers and let the cows pass out without backing. he floors of this stable are made of Portland cement and crushed granite it the surface sloping gently, so as to lead all water to the sewer drains. he manure gutters behind the cows are 16 inches wide, with the bottom sloping three-fourths of an inch to he rear side and 1% inches of slope to the center of the stable. The floor of the cow stalls is raised four inches above the other parts of the stable floor. Th mangerst are composed of the same ma terial as the floor and are built up from it. The side of the manger nearest the cow is eight inches high and three inches thick, rounded down at the bot tom. The front of the manger is 16 inches high the manger is feet six inches wide and reaches from one end of the stable to the other. It is used both for feeding and for water. he water is turned into the manger on either end from a pipe, and as the mangers slope towards the center from both ends it is readily drained into the sewer by opening a- valve* after the have had sufficient time to drink. I is said that this means of watering cows is* just as convenient and satis factory as any of the individual water in devices, while it is more cleanly and more wholesome.—Rural Ne Yorker. BUTTER-MAKING TESTS. a in a A on to a iv a The discovery of the important part played by various bacteria in producing the flavor and aroma of butter has led to the introduction of what are known as commercial butter cultures, and -dairymen have been led to hope that by the use of such cultures and of the process of pasteurizing, the quality of their butter might be materially im proved. Recent trials at the Pennsyl vania experiment station, however, re ported in bulletins No. 45 and No. 46., now in press, seemed to indicate that cleanliness, the careful selection of milk and close attention to details promise to effect more in improving the flavor of our butter than pasteurizing and* the use of commercial cultures. With pasteurized cream, the acid-form in cultures were found to give slightly but distinctly better results than were obtained from unpasteurized cream rip ened spontaneously, while non-acid forming cultures gave^results, if any thing, slightly inferior to those ob tained by spontaneous ripening. With unpasteurized cream, as might have been expected, the results were less marked. A home-made starter, how ever carefully preparedfrom skim milk, was found to give as good„if not better» results than the more expensive com mercial cultures, and this was true both with pasteurized and it raw cream. N distinctly beneficial results were ob served from pasteurizing, although the •experiments were not specially planned to test this point. Thes results are sim ilar to those recently published by the Wisconsin experiment station and the taken together do not seem to in dicate that, under present conditions, marked advantages are to be antici pated from the use of the commercial cultures* Trials were also made of heal/ Ing milk to a temperature of about 165 degrees Fahrenheit before separating, without any marked effect on the flavoring of the resulting butter. A for Good COTVS. Wha we dairymen should aim at is to secure the best cows we can, and try testing each cow's milk by churning separately, and ascertain for sure they pay for their keeping and give us a little profit. We can be satis fled it a small profit, but cannot af ford to keep cows at a loss for the be nevolent purpose of supplying dairy products to consumers at a low cost. •Excelsior should be the watchword, and the poorer cows kept only until their places can be filled by better.— Wisconsin Agriculturist. •-'.V,i.-.T WATER IN ABUNDANCE. It a Absolutel Essentia to the Highes a Most Perfec Millc Production A abundant supply of water, easily obtained whenever the cow wants' it» is necessary to the highest milk produc tion. About 87 per cent, of milk is wa ter, and if he cow's supply of water is limited he milk yielded is propor tionately reduced. I pays to furnish pure, palatable water summer and win ter, so that the cow will drink large quantities, as* within reasonable limits, an increase in water consumption brings an increase in the milk yield. Some dairymen are obliged to water their cows in summer from artificial ponds. When this is the case the pond should be fenced and the water drawn off into a trough by a pipe controlled by a float valve, so that the trough will always be full of clean water. When cows are allowed to stand in a pond the water becomes indescribably filthy and the cows will not drink enough to maintain a full milk yield. Such water is liable to taint the milk, and some of the filth which collects on the cow's body while standing in the water is very apt to fall into the pail at milking. This summer we saw dairy cows drink in from ponds in which they stood and in which pigs wallowed. Milk from a single herd of cows watered in this a might taint the entire product of a creamery. In winter dairy cows which have poor shelter and are obliged to drink ice water from a creek dread the chill and often do not drink as much water as needed. I will often pay to warm the water, using one of the cheap heaters on the market. On stormy days if cows are exposed while drinking the milk yield will be reduced sometimes as much as 25 per cent., and when the weather is bad it will pay either to have the watering trough under a shed or else carry wa ter to the cows and let them stay in the stable. There are devices on the market which keep a supply of water constant ly before cows in the stable, and tests made with these devices show that when- used the milk yield is increased over that given by any other method of watering.—Western Plowman. AUTOMATIC STANCHION. A Most Excellen and Safe Devic for Cattle TbJnt Hav Not Bee Dehorned The pieces A and are the movable parts, the first closed and the other open. Th narrow strips 1,11,111, each of which is two inches wide and three quarters of an inch thick, represent the apparatus by which the stanchions are operated. Th pieces I and III are fastened to the immovable upright (e) and connected through II by means of bolts, that at being fitted with a block against which the upright A is to play AUTOMATIC STANCHIONS. when open, while the block (d)/is to hold the strips in place when the stan chion is shut, the weight of the whole causing I to rest upon it. Thus, to un lock the stanchion one must lift this strip, which raises the other two, and push up the drop (f) the upright (A) may then be pushed back and the ani mal withdraw her head. On the other hand, when she comes in and takes1 her place in the open stanchion she must press against lever (III) in trying to get at the feed below, and this causes the rests (II and I) to come down, and so brings upright A,, by means of the block at g, into the place again, the drop (f) locking it so that the cow can not get out until released by human hands.—Fred O. Sibley, in Farm and Fireside. E my of Hornles Cows. When it comes to putting up cows for winter, the cow that has no horns will be found to take much less room than her neighbor who is tempted to and generally does hook and fight all those near her. In the stable, of course, each stall will accommodate its cow, horns or no horns. Bu we believe that horned cattle are often kept in stables on bright, pleasant, winter days, to keep them from hooking one another, when they would be much healthier if allowed to run in a small yard. Most barnyards are made much larger than would be necessary if all horns were removed. This wastes manure, as more surface is exposed to rains, and the droppings in a large yard are often so scattered that they are never gathered into heaps and carried where they are needed.— American Cultivator. Th Separation of Cream. You cannot thoroughly separate cream from milk if the separator is not run at full speed. Cream for consumers should be pasteurized. This kind of cream will appear to be thin, but it should be sold by the Babcock test. Cream should be sold for one cent for every per cent, of butter fat in the cream. Parchment paper in cold water will draw the color from the Unit, ter. Washing butter in salt water is simply throwing away salt. Casein will coagulate at 90 degrees, and it is safe to pour hot water into the cream and make white specks in the butter.—Ru ral Ne Yorker. MRS.

Mr. Suburbanite W as In a Hurry and Got is Commission Mixed. He had reached the door in his usual morn ing sprint for the train, when his wife called for him: |J0h, Tom!" "Yes," he answered, with his hand on the knob. "I had the garden dug over yesterday," she cried, and I want you to bring some plants from town." 4 5 ght mng ro snapped "what do you jr Ilurry up I must catch my train." .. Well, came the reflective voice from «ru! ?H "y° & 8 me—" Oh, hurry!" he retorted, with a show of impatience. Well, I think-" "Quick," he shouted-, with the door open: "I hear the whistle. What is it?" "B—roses," was the answer that reached his ears, and he was off like a madman At noon he feared he might have been a little harsh in the morning, so he went out and bought two dozen varieties of rose bushes, and carried the thorny, scratchy things home in the evening, to the peril of anyone who approached him. Then he laid the offering at his wife's feet, an«iiTWu sed to see her burst into tears. What is the matter?" he asked, wonder ingly. "Are not these all right?" "N-no, she sobbed "I don't want roses. "But, my dear," he protested, "you cer tainly said roses this morning." "I—I—know it," was the weeping an swer.

This is what it means. On and after March 12th, 1899, the Northern Pacific Rail way will start two trains each day flying westward from its eastern terminals. A the same time—not at exactly the same hours—two trains will also leave its western terminals for the east. There will then be, each day, moving ov«r the 2,000 miles of main track between St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth at the east, and Seattle, Ta coma and Portland on the Pacific Coast, FOTJUTEEX OP THESE TRAINS—in both direc tions—going at the same time, and this in a countiy where 20 years ago the buffalo were roaming. These trains will be known as No. 1 the Puget Sound Limited, No. 3 the Oregon Limited going west, and No. 2 the Twin City Mail, No. 4 the Twin City Ex press, going east, and will contain in the aggregate more than 100 cars of various sorts. Each train will have a mail car, a baggage and express car, first and second class coaches, a Free Colonist Sleeping Car, a Pullman Tourist Sleeping car, a Dining car and one or more Pullman First Class Sleeping cars, so that everybody and every body's pocketbook can be accommodated. The Dining cars are a part of the solid through trains, and no one need therefore go hungry. Train No. 1 will leave St. Paul at 8:55 a. m. train No. 3 at 10:45 p.m. after all trains have arrived from the east and south, morning and evening. Train No. 2 will leave Portland at 11 -.30 a. m., and train No. 4 at 11:00 p. m., arriving at St. Paul 2:00 p. m. and 7-30 a. m., respectively, in time for all departing trains eastward. One train goes via Helena, Mont.. and one via Butte, in each direction. These trains run through the most important cities of the northwest, and are hauled by new and enormous Schenectady locomotives, making, when necessary, 75 or 80 miles an hour. These diurnal trains will amply accom modate the large immigration and tourist travel that seems probable this year. During the Yellowstone Park season one train in each direction will carry a Pullman First Class Sleeping Car, especially for Park travel.

Kidney trouble is in itself so insidious and deceptive that thousands have some form of it SXJ& never suspect it. For many years' medical science has been trying to discover some remedy that would positively overcome these dangerous troubles. But not until recently was the discov ery made. Dr. Kilmer, the eminent physician and scientist, after years of study and research, and after test on test that never varied in the grand re sult, announced the discovery of Swamp-Root, which has proven itself a most wonderful cure for all diseases of the kidneys and bladder. While Swamp-Root has proven such a remarkable success in curing kidney and bladder diseases, it has also proved equally invaluable in the cure of blood diseases, rheumatism, liver and stom ach troubles, and in the regulation and cure of all uric acid troubles. If your water, when allowed to remain undisturbed in a glass or bottle for twenty-four hours, forms a sediment or settling, or has a cloudy appearance, it is evidence that your kidneys and blad der need immediate attention. Swamp-Root has been tested in so many ways, in hospital work, in private practice, among the helpless too poor to purchase relief, and has proved so suc cessful in every case, that a special ar rangement has been made by which all readers of this paper, have not al ready tried it, may have a sample bot tle sent absolutely free by mail.
