Fat in Milk.
It can not be that the butter fat in
milk is obtained from the fat stored
in the tissues of the cow, otherwise the
animal would soon become emaciated.
Cows obtain the butter fat in milk
from the food they eat and digest, and
not from the reserve or accumulation
of fat in their bodies. Reason as well
as observation teaches that cows ex
tract butter fat from the food they
consume and digest, and to produce a
large percentage of cream the rations
of the cow should be rich in the ele
ments of nitrogen and carbohydrates,
which are found in linseed meal, mid
dlings, bran, corn meal and ground
oats. At the Cornell University cows
that yielded 200 pounds of butter fat
annually under ordinary feeding yield
ed 310 pounds when given liberal
rations of feed rich in nitrogen and
varbohydrates. Cream will not make
butter unless it contains fat, and
profitable fats will not be produced
unless cows are fed on rations rich in
the elements that produce cream.
The common busy bees may be grad
ually replaced by the Italian or Cypri
an varieties, by removing the old
queen and substituting a new fertil
ized queen of either kind preferred.
If she is carefully guarded in a small
cage for a few days the bees soon
recognize her, and in the course of a
few months the old bees will all be
dead and the new ones will be of the
desired kind. The queen is compelled,,
to lay numbers of eggs daily in order
to supply the great loss constantly
recurring by the destruction from
birds, storms and other difficulties.
There should be left plenty of honey
for a winter supply, and the hives
should be well protected from storms.
What the beekeeper should aim to do
is to sow such crops as will enable
the bees to lay in a large supply of
honey, and he can well afford to do so
if he has a number of hives.

When the fertilizer is allowed to lie

Therefore it is important that the soil
should always be moist when fertilizer
of any kind is plowed under.
In many ways humus benefits the
soil. Tn the first place, it makes the
soil lighter as well as looser. This
condition allows good ventilation and
gives a chance for poisonous gases to
escape. The soil does not become over
heated, and, in clay territory, the
ground is lightened, making it more
easy to work. It is equally beneficial

Hogs and Straw Ricks.
Some farmers think that a straw
rick is a good place for the sow and
her brood to sleep. This is a mistake.
It is best to keep them away from the
straw pile winter and summer. In the
winter the pigs will burrow beneath
the straw, get too warm and take cold
when they come out into the freezing
atmosphere. Coughing and wheezing
is the result, and the pigs do no good
or die. Besides, if burrowed beneath
the straw they are liable to be stepped
on and seriously injured or killed by
the stock running to the rick.
During the summer months especial
ly should the sow and her young be
fenced from the straw pile. If they
