Unfortunately, however, he did not
know the name of the faith he wished
to embrace, so he applied for informa

said he, "phwat is thot new religion

Last season 1 bought a number of
wild heifers ; so wild I could not get my
hands upon them, nor would they take
feed from my hand. I was in a lot of
trouble in my mind as to how I
could ever make gentle milch cows from
such wild heifers. I made one failure
She calved in a hog lot, and for fear
the hog might get the calf I was soon
on the ground, and as the little fellow
had rolled into a ditch I took it up and
carried it outside, expecting the dam to
follow ; but no sir. She would not leave
the spot until I forced her out. She
did not come back for a day and then I
could not get her to own the calf, which
died. I could not rope the dam, and I
lost the cow, as a milker, and the calf.
This was my start. I promised myself
to wait next time until the mother and
offspring got mutually acquainted before

leave them together until the cow will
