One of the lilt hies t habits of a man ever coutructed Is thnt of wetting the tents of tho cow ho Is milking with milk before ho begins. This, bo fan tics, makes the process of milking eas ier. 1 have seen the bands of milkers which fairly recked with the discolored milk as It oozed between their Angers. The man who does this is not a fit band for work. More or less of tbo foul liquid will get Into tbo pall and help to make the milk Insanitary. Borne cows do milk hard, but almost always tbero will be some man who Is strong enough tn tbo hands to milk them without resort ing to nny such uncleanly habit ob this. Finally, threo words ought always to be In the mind of every milker-carefulness, cleanliness and kindness. The Start of the Row. Dorothy Say. uuntle. Is religion something to wear?
