The following bulletin to Nebraska dairymen has been Issued by tlic de partment of 'dairy husbandry of the state university : The present hot , dry season Is prov ing to bo a most disastrous ono foi keeping up the milk How and It will be necessary to use extreme measures to prevent n severe loss. Reports have been received from various parts of the state tolling of dry pastures and a severe decrease In milk production. This Is a most sorl- ous condition when we consider the month of Juno as the best In the year for pastures and volume of milk pro duced. As most of the cows freshen In the spring , they should he at this season of the year at the height of their pro duction. If they are allow.cd to shrink now they are not apt to be profitable fall and winter producers. It must be understood that a cow must produce a certain amount of milk and fat during the year In order to provo a pioflt to her keeper. Thousands of cows are made unprof itable through lack of food at critical seasons of the year , and this Is cer tainly a most critical season. The first cutting of alfalfa has now been harvested and milch cows should have access to some of this now hay. They should also be given a small grain ration , which could be given In amounts according to the production of the cow. As the ( lies nro getting very bad , It Is well to use once or twlco a day some lly mixture which can bo put on with a hand sprayer. The milker will find his work more agreeable If he would put his cows In a dark stable while they arc lining milked. If this Is impos sible he can use a gunnysack blan ket , which , thrown over the animal during milking time , will prevent switching and discomfort to the cow and milker. The main quality for profitable production may be ex pressed by the simple term , "cow comfort ; " in other words , when a cow IB comfortable nho can then do hur best. SJiould slio be tormented with files , forced to cut short , unpalat able grass or suffer hunger , It Is Im possible for her to make her most profitable production. Wo are quite likely to got some good rains later on in the season , which will revive the pastures and give the animals more succulent feed , but until such a condition is had the feeding process must go on. Few cow keepers realize the great differ ence ! In profit between cows giving a normal How and these reduced to a scant flow. Briefly , this may be ex plained In the following way : A 1,000-pound cow requires each day about twelve pounds of alfalfa hay to sustain her. This is termed the "maintenance" part of the ration. If this cow Is producing thirty pounds of 3 per cent , milk , she will need about forty pounds of alfalfa hay per day to make the milk. 'This added to the twelve pounds for main tenance would mean she must receive fifty-two pounds of hay. The same figures In terms of grass would mean she must cat tlilrty-soven pounds of grass for maintenance and sixty-six pounds of grass for production , or a total requirement to keep up body and milk flow of 101 ! pounds of grass , which under the present conditions , Is a physical Impossibility. State Treasurer's Report. State Treasurer Brian's monthly re port shows that he had a balance of ? G7G,4B7.G5 at the close of th6 month of June. The balance on hand June 1 was $87G,410GS.

SHORTAGE OF WATER. Mnny Complaints From Western Ne braska Irrlgators. State Engineer E. 0. Simmons , as Bccri'tary of the state board of Irri gation , has received many complaints from western Nebraska from Irrlga- tors. Complaints nro nmdo that claim ants are ur.lng water to which others have pi lor lights. Information ie- reived Indicates that the North Platte river .ind all of the smaller struamn In the western pait of the state arc almost dry. Luck of snow In the mountains In Colorado and Wyoming Is given mi the reason for lack of water in the Plntto rlvor. Usually these rivers rlso the latter part of Ttino from the melting of snow. If Lho rlso does not take place , and this Is now doubtful , those who depend upon Irrigation in western Nebraska may have great dlfllculty In getting water. State Engineer .Simmons 1ms no funds with which to police canals and tliero Is no way to prevent per sons from Inking water regardless of whether or not persons entitled to prior claims on streams have been nupplled. The Irrigator who has a crop that Is being ruined for lack of water Is not likely-to stand Idly by and see water flowing down stream to some other claimant who may live many miles away. The state engineer Is tumble to cause ariests and go Into court to prosecute persons who take water out of their turn because he has no founds to expend for such pur poses. Flis fwo under secretaries , llobort H. Willis of Bridgeport , and Page T. Francis of Crawford are In the field constantly trying to pacify claimants and restore some semb lance of order , but It Is said the Ivrl- gators have about decided to take water whenever they need It regard less of the rights of others. It Is be lieved it will be hard to get Juries to convict such persons in their own communities for so doing. All that the state engineer can do Is to notify persons complained of that they must not open their headgates till these having prior rights are supplied with water. If this docs no good the com plainants will have to go Into the courts to seek injunctions to enforca their rights Attorney General May Leave. Attorney General W. T. Thompson , according to a rumor current ) in Lin coln , has been appointed to a posi tion at Washington at a salary of several thousand dollars a year , has accepted the position and will go to Washington at the close of his term of office in Nebraska. Mr. Thompson Is now on his way home from Wash ington and confirmation of the rumor cannot bo had at bis office or his home.
