A grass which should be the dairyman's favorite, owing to the sweet scented fragrance it commu nicates to the milk, is the , vernal grass (anthoxanthum odoratum). It springs up early in the spring, flowers and sc-nts the air with its fragrance. Asagrass for exclusive feeding it will not rank high, but when mixed properly with the other more nutritious grasses it gives a fragrance to the whole mass which is veiy delightful. No grasB probably flavoTS milk, cream and nutter so directly and noticeable as this sweet, scented vernal grass, and where it is abund ant in the fields growing along with the other varieties, tho butter made from that section has a dis tinguishing and exquisite taste. When this grass is mowed and stowed away in the silo with other grasses it gives a splendid milk food for winter feeding. ' On large dairy farms it is well worth the trouble to scatter some of the seeds of the vernal grass in the pastures. Tho reBult in the flavor of tho milk and butter will soon be noticeable. Where fancy butter is made a spec ialty this grass is an essential to the pastures. The fragrance of the grass is due to the presence of gum benzoin or benzoic acid, which can be dissolved in cold water. Butter washed in water in which the the grass has been soaking will loso its rancidity to a large extent. Ensilage butter is often destitute of true flavor, and it can only be flavored by artificial methods or by adding 6ome such fragrant grass to the silo whiifh will impart its sweetness to the milk before it leaves the cows, E. P. Smith in American Cultivator. WHEAT GROWING AND BEIXIXO. The wheat growing region is full of hopes. Its crops are excellent, and the crops of European and Asiatic wheat fields are bad. Tho Amer ican farmers look for an enormous demand, and high prices. This promises to be his year the year in which he will not be compelled to meet on equal terms in the Loudon market the peasants of the Danube and Southern Russia and the ryots of India. Thero is one thing the farmer should guard against carefully, and that is invidious advice to hold on to his wheat, for it is easy ' to hold on too long. He should see to it that he gets his price, and he should take steps, through the various agencies at his command, to keep himself informed of the prices rul ing in the market of the world. He must, in other words, avoid the wiles of the middleman; but . he muse bear in mind the important fact that wheat can be kept too long; that holding on for a rise demands capital, and that the price must rise faster than the interest accumu lates. Holding on is a dangerous game even when played by experts. DILUTING THE MILK. Last summer the ice crop was short in many parts of this country, Our ice gave out the 1st of .July, and we didn't know what to do about "raising the cream until we hit upon the expediont of diluting the milk with 50 percent, of well water when it was strained into the deep cans in the creamery. This answered the purpose. The cVeam was all up in a few hours, and the only objec tion to this method was that it took up moro room in the creamery, and tho skimmed milk was very poor for feeding purposes; but the addi tion of some linseed meal made it all right to feed to calves and pig3. This method of diluting milk for cream raising can be practiced with any style of setting the milk, I suppose, but it is probably better to use deep cans sot in a tank of water. It will be worth while to make a note of this in case' tho ice should give out beforo cold weather. C.
