Hnch of them kept n cow, and each endeav ored, beside supply ing the family with milk, to mnko somo bilttor for sale. Johnson wns one of ftl.n fnrtfinrit thnt .... ...... bis nolghbors declared had been spoiled by rending books on agriculture and agricultural pipers. Ho had got, as Boss oxprcsswl It, "hlRh-kcr-flutln Ideas" on farming In general and tho cow In particular. Ono proof of this waa In tho action of Johnson when ho sold oft all tho cows ho had and took tbo price and put It Into n single cow of great milk and butter-producing capacity, lloss said that this wns a ploco of foolishness that could lmvo como only from Johnson'a continual roadlng of agricultural papers. Any way, every fnrmcr know that a cow waa n cow and that was all thero was to It, and tho man that would go Into fancy stock of thnt kind wns simply wastlnc his money. Why, If ho had only put his money Into n high-bred hunting dog, thoro mlfiht hnvo been somo reason to It. However, Johnson continued to milk his cow nnd Koss did tho same. Doth sent their butter to the Bamc market and not nbout tho snmo prlco por pound, as tho butter Johnson mado was from only ono cow nnd thoreforo could not well bo sont to n distant market or to fancy customers. Johnson's wlfo kept account of tho receipts nnd expendi tures In n systematic manner, nnd Mrs. Itoss, wishing to show that a common cow would do as muoh ns a high-bred one, nlso kept nccottnt on her aide, though Mr. Iloss said that that, too, waa a ploco of foolishness. At tho end of thrco months Mrs. Itoss confided to hor husband that tho cost of keeping their cow had Just equalled tho ro ccplts, while tho Johnson cow had 17 or thorcnbouls standing to hor credit. Iloss went out Into tho country nnd paid 1S for another cow, nnd Mrs. Iloss' hopes wcro accordingly rained, Dut tho two cows cost about doublo tho COSt of one. nnd In ivrn mnnthn mnrn ho found from his wlfo's accounts that tno two cows had mado a profit of only 11.85, whllo tho credit to tho Johnson cow was 29. Hojs this tlmo bought a 120-cow, but at tho end of nnotlior mouth tho profit for tho thrco was but a tin h.i.ii. i wmig mo joiinson cow nau raiscu the limit to 33. Itoss determined to boat that cow it ho had to buy a wholo hord, bo about once n month ho would bring homo n now cow, generally uougni oncap at somo auction. At tho end of eighteen months Itoss had a hord of ten rmv nil nriii n. faithfully as thoy could to bent tho jonnson cow. Tiio product was great ly Increased In volumn. ono or two of tho animals had run dry. um mo oxpenso oi Kcoping thorn wns considerable, and It soomed to Itoss that all tho money lm innv tmm t.n . .

Moreover it had becomo a great burden with tho Hog fnmiiv tn mm. ton cows twlco n day and otherwise care for them. Mrs. Iloss suggested that thoy had hotter him ft ttnnes n - - - - w timii 1AJ help, but Hoes winced at the proposi tion anu saiu mat tno profits would not warrant It At tho end of tho tlmo specified tho Itossca took nn account of stock, and found that tho last two cows had proved a losing Investment nnd thnt now tho balanco was Just a trlflo on the wrong sldo of tho books, it had actually cost moro to keep tho ton cows than they had brought In, after figur ing tho money value of tho feed thnt had beon raised on tho farm. Thoy learned that tho Johnson cow had In creased her not balanco to 170.37 during tho eighteen months. This waa tho last straw with lloss. H0 sent nlno of bis cowa to tho butcher and gave up dairying except for homo use Ho says thero Is no profit In dairying, and ho knowa it by actual experience.
