suggest some remedy. He describe
with great clearness and fore the opera

no law, and says wilh truth that tho

The uieu employed In the busiueaa
nnmbtr 730,000 and the borsos are over
1.000,000. There are over 12.000,000
horses all told.
The cows and homes annually con
sume 80,000,000 tons of hay and nearly
90,000,000 bushels of cornmeal, about
the same amount of oatmeal, 273.000,000
bushels of oats, 2,000,000 bushel of bran
and 80,000,000 bushels of corn, to say
nothing of the brewery grains, sprouts
and other questionable feed of various
kinds that are used to a great extent It
costs fWO.OOO.OOO to feed these cows and
bones. The average price paid to tho
laborers necessary iu the dairy business
Is probably twenty dollars a mouth,
amounting to f 180,000,000 a year.
The average cow yields about 430 gal
lons of milk a year, which gives a total
product of 8, "30,000,000 gallons. Twelve
cents a gallon is a fair price to estimate
the value of milk at, a total return to
tho dairy farmers of $S10,000,000, If they
sold all the milk as milk. But SO per
cent of their milk is made into cheese
and butter. It takes tweuty-seveu pounds
of milk to wake one pound of butter,
and about ten pounds to make one pound
of cheese. There is the same amount of
albuminoids in tH pounds of milk a
there is in one pound of beef. A fat
steer furnishes 50 per cent of boneless
beef, but it would require 24,000,000
sUwrs weighing 1,500 pounds each, to
produce the same amount of nutrition as
tho annual milk product does. Amer
