LETTEE FKOM THE NOEjJH END
To the EJilor of The Pioneer:
Iii The Mmlraa Pioneer of December
15 I noticed au article headed, "I he
Haw RoikIb." AIeo a. letter written lo
the County Judge aud his reply to
I wish to suy that there 1h but four
settlers living ou (lie north end in the
Cross Keys road district. We are litre
together ready to do what we can, but
trhat cau four men do on a grade like
this? I have had at least fifteen or
twenty nieu stop me aud ask why
dou't you get in and put that grade
down. Why don't you? What do
they take us for? We are here and
willing todo all iu our power toward
the said grade. There was Imen taken
from this district to work the roads in
the Madras or Kutcher district. Why
bot return the compliment? Tt ivtlie
writer's understanding that the super
visor ol Kutcher dbstrict received $300
fqr work on the Madras bill. I will
say if the supervisor o f this district
would get the same amount for tills
grade, and the people on the PiaiiiP,
ulio the Madras people, would do their
part as they should, we four poor great
men ou the north end would get the
urude done iu line shape.

Dou't let the calf run with the
cow in winter, even though she
is raising it. It will keep the
udder and teats wet so much of
the lime that bad results are
sure to follow and the cow be
ruined. Turn the calf with the
cow two or three times a day
and see to it that the cow is nol
exposed to the cold wind until
her teats are thoroughly dry.
See that all live stock are
carefully sheltered from the
storms and cold night air. The
food consumed Blioukl go to
make beef, mutton, pork, milk
tr butter, and not to keeping
the animals warm alone. It will
be first applied to this latter
use, and only the surplus be
yond what is necessary for this
purpose will go to make profit.
Cleaning the cistern need nol
he so hard a job if the cistern
has been rightly constructed.
The bottom should bo dished,
sloping to the center. It can
thus be pumped nearly dry and
can collect tne settlings m
a smaller circumference. If
the pump draws water from
its lower point, the walls and
bottom can be washed and.
rinsed down and the water
pumped instead of being
laboriously dipped out.
