Sprouts which start from the limbs

the best time for the work and March

T. M. Winslow, of tho Ayrshire
Breeders Association, being asked
what is the averago yield of Ayrshire
cows, writes that he has collected
about 1.000 records for a year yield,
and he finds that for cows and heifers
the geneial is 6,525 pounds of milk
for the year, and of manure cows
7,000, for a selection . of 75 cows he
obtained an average of 9,220 pounds
and all of this average he believes was
obtained from ordinary treatment,
common to all careful dairymen and
and may be considered an average of
Ayreshire as a breed at this time.
That there is such a disease of the

In any kind of tree the withering or
dying out of branches will in time af

the peach, but even on this a dead

followed by others until the treo dies.
Iu many cases other causes of peach

not infriquently the cause will be

In two days lawns may often be
greatly improved, by giving a denser
growth of grass, and by enriching the
soil with toicdr-ssing. For enriching
use line compost or pulverized old
manure, and if the soil is known to be
of such a character as to be strongly
beiulitid by superphosphate or other
special fertilizer, mix them with the
manure. First, and early in spring,1
loosen the soil with a steel rake or1
sharp, tine harrow; then spread evenly
the top drissing, and rake it thor
oughly: thru tow grass seed heavily,)
and hghlly rake it in. A roller passed
over it will piess the earth and seed in
contact and promote free growth. This
treatment is well adapted to lawns
which have become thin of grass, and
the harrowing or raking should be of
ten enough r. pealed to give the sur
face a fine pulverix ition.
