Secretar of State Knox has seat to
the Mexican government a note
which amazes the foieign'contim:ent
in Washington as another example of
current '"shotgun diplomacy."
The imprisonment of Jamt-8 A.
Cook, an American citizen, at Guada

Knox's brusque-items toward Mexico,
but the cause is said to be found in

Governments have lost fa ml In the
United States, both as to fairness and

They have come to the conclusion
that, the present' diplomacy of the

They cite also Secretary Knox's
somewhat ridiculous blustering attl-

The loss of flesh at weaning Hue
may br reduced to a minimum if the
colt Is taught t) eat grain with its
dam before it Is weaned. It Is not the
best practice to feed the colt large
quantities of grain while with the
mare, but rather to get him to eating
small amounts. Teach hlin to stand
tied with a halter before weunlng.
so that he will not fret when taken
away from the mare. Colts that are
accustomed to being lpd and tpd are
much easier to manage during wean-
ing time than those that have neer I
been handled. '
About 6 months of age Is tho prop-'
er time to wean a strong colt. Many

When the colt is taken from the
mare he should have a" box stall

Tho box stall will afford him more

One of the main causes of failure
in dairying is guess, work. The
amount of butter fat produced by
each member of the herd should be

perience to find that the most nrom-I

who are not making the bust'ittss pay

that this or that is right, but know
that It Is right. Know that your help
is gentle with the cows. Know that
each cow has fresh dry bedding each

'ho morning after being milked.
Know that after tho cows are milked
they are turned out for r.ir nnd ex

Know that the stable Is thoroughly
