How oan a cow have the "milk and
beef form ?"
If treated harshly a oow will not "give
down" her milk.
It is a fact that the same cow's milk
varies in richness at different times.
A fat milch cow is apt to feel us. Better
have one that puts the fat into the pail.
Always milk vour cows clean if you
wish them to hold throughout the entire
Two of the three prizes given for sage
cheese at the New York state fair were
captured by women.
To milk a fidgety cow, begin gently
and slowly. Soothe her instead of soar
ing her by your touoh.
Tincture of aoonite is highly recom
mended for garget and milk fever. Dose,
fifteen to twenty drops.
For winter dairying cows ought to be
bred in January or February, bringing
them in fresh in October.
By the new Wieoonsin law the word
'standard" is to be branded on olieese
containing 80 per cent, of fat.
Professor J. Augustus Voelcker, dairy
expert of England, has found that night's
milk is richer than morning's.
If you are going to pack butter to keep,
pack it solidly. Experiments with but

England a machine for weighing and
hoisting milk was exhibited among the
Frost injures butter. Butter that has
been frozen soon gets off flavor when ex
posed to a warmer temperature. Keep
your milk, cream and butter away from
severe frost and oold.
The smaller the globules of butter fat
in milk the more slowly they rise. This
is the reason some oow's milk is longer
in raising the cream than others.
Many farm women have no idea of the
work they would save themselves by
getting a creamer instead of washing
dozens of milk pans in the old fashioned
High Feeding Pays.
What are you feeding and milking
cows for, for fun, or to have them earu
you a profit on their keeping? If the
latter, then why not heed the wiBdom of
those who have tried it Bnd know that
within healthful limits for the cow, the
more of grain foods she will digest, the
more olean profit on investment in cow,
buildings, farm and food.
Look over the facts and see and know,
that there is more profit in keeping one
cow that oan yield 3 lbs. of butter per
day, than three cows that yield only one
pound each per day.
It used to be asserted that the high
feeding of the phenomenal cows cost
more than they earned. That was stated
by those who did not know. The fact is
they are the most profitable oows milked,
if used for purely commercial purposes.
True, piles of money are spent on some
of them, for fancy and exhibition pur
poses; but we never sat down to figure
the oost of what such eat, that we did
not find that they were like an unques
tioned bond that is drawing a very high
rate of interest. If this were not true,
phenomenal cows would be nnanoial
frauds but they are no frauds.

been a painful one but it was not known
that she was injured in such a manner
until Tuesday. The little one's continu

"Out of sorts," "distrait," "the blues,"
these are familiar appellatives for un

remedy which an effective stomaohic
persistently used is the paramount need,
is conclusive evidence that the system is
insufficiently nourished becanse and
for no other cause where organic disease
does not exist the food is not assim

of the stomaoh, reform an irregular con

of imparting strength is attributable its
efficacy as a preventive of malaria and

From the Horseman.
Guido is not a rnoehorse of the high
est class, not a Tenny, a Salvator a Ri
ley or a Kingston, but be is a thorough
ly good racehorBe nevertheless, and a
truer (we were going to say more con
scientious) thoroughbred never ran in
the west. There is a story conneoted
with his breeding. A few years ago the
pioturesaue and unique Galifornian
Dun McCarthy be of the White hat
sold the brown mare Aurora, by 'Iliad
Stevens, to Harry Thornton, of "Ranoho
Resuoa," California, for $210. The irre
pressible Dun used the $210 as part pay
ment for 0. II. Todd, who won for him
the American Derby of 1887, while
Thornton bred the mare to Double Cross',
an inbred Bonni Sootland, and in 1887
she produced the big-cueatunt oolt Gui
do, wbo was knocked down at a yealing
sale to 0. V. Tupper, of Al Farrow noto
riety for 85, So well did he develop
that Tupper sold him to W. H. Babb,
his present owner, for $5,000 as a two-year-old.
As a two-year-old he met such
good ones as Racine and Pliny, and he
onoe defeated the former: as a three-year-old
some of the best oolts in the
west, and won twenty-one races out of
thirty-one sturts. During the past year
be was over raced, badly placed, mostly
badly ridden tin J generally messed
about, but was first eleven times and
second thirteen times out of thirty-five
races, He demonstrated himself a thor
oughly good horse by winning at mile
heats at Washington Purk in H:l',
1:41, with 117 pounds up, thus breaking
tho mile beat record. With the same
weight up he ran at St. Paul a mile in
1:40. Ills total winnings the pust sea
son exoeeded $8,500. With good man
agement, and if not raced off his legs,
