Some people judge a farmer by the
fences he maintains. The wise man
looks over the fence and sees the crop
in the field. Therefore put your work
on your fields though the fences have
to groan and croak.

One of the most humane ways for
removing home ou calve» Is by means
of caustic potash Get one or more
sticks of caustic potnsh and preserve
it In n tightly corked bottle. One stick
will serve to dehorn u number of
calves Apply this potash as soon as
the buttonlike horns can lie felt on the
calt. which Is usually when It Is
three or four days old To apply the
potash remove the hair nliout the horn
close to the skin, moisten the potnsh
slightly and rub over the skin which
rovers the point of the horns until the
skin is white. It Is not necessary to
rub the skin until blood comes, as Is
often advised, as It causes unnecessary
soreness. Wrap the caustic In heavy
paper to protect the hands of the op
erator. Do not moisten the caustic too
much so that the liquid will run down
tbe sides of the calf» bead, for this
will cause unnecessary pain. Fasten
the head securely and apply the pot-
ash only on tbe spot over the horns.
