The Indiana Farmer is authority for
the statement that the Shropshires

An English farmer, writing of feed
ing ensilage to his flock of five hun
dred sheep, saps that they did better
on it ihan on any other food, and last
year of his 480 lambs not one died,
and his ewes did better than usual.
The way to build up tho sheep iu

greater capacity for mutton, and in
creates in the individual, and put a
small u.xk on every farm, where they
will pay their way, even if wool isu'i

The points to be observed in putting
up wool are, not to fold the fl.jece too
tightly as to destroy its elasticity;
not to try to sell twine .for wool, and
to exclude all tags, leg wool anil all
foreign matter from the interior ol

The business of raising lambs for
early Bpring marketing is yearly as
suming greater proportions in New
York and New Lugland. To meet
with the greatest success it is found
important to select ewes for dams that

as to keep a liberal flow of milk long

dairy farm practical handling of tht
milk only can determine how best to

To get the cream quickly from milk,
as soon as it is drawn from the cow
reduce its temperature to Rbout 45

live hours all the cream will rise. The
cream will be perfectly sweet, and the

it takes over 1-.'5,0(X) cows every year
to feed the soldiers, and that tho
Hindoos themselves very rarely touch
meat, living upon rice, vegetables and
milk. Once even tho poorest could
have all the milk he wanted for his
babies and himself, but now it is im
possible for tho villagers to get milk
even for infants whoso mothers' breasts
have failed, and the failure of tho
breasts is due chiefly, also, to the lack
of cow's milk. Thousands of children

The idea that any method of feed

popular mistake. Heating the milk
