Pbr.t at Hillsboro on
Keeping Cows
and Dairying
a Great Dairy State
C-t Needs Developing
Along That Line
fr. Thiers, the head of the big
tf d milk plant at Hillsboro
cut an interview to the Inde-
d;it In which be says:
Tt ore are not nearly enough
In Washington county to

er.:ln othor sections haaproy
bz. the demand will create the
"f. One cow supplies about
ioundi of milk a day for about
days in the year. This means
, the' factory will absorb the
luct Of GOOD cows. How surely
existence of a steady demand
tulutes th supply is shown by
experience of tho factory which
lilt at Lansing, Mich., 20 years
At lfat time it could not get
) pounds a day, but for the last
m years it has ) een ablo to get
QUO and now it can got a quar
of a million pounds a day.
cocat'y around Hillsboro will
jort plenty of cows to supply

Cr ated up to it.

Sable people in a place of

they want to take a holiday; you
must bo able to depend on them

be scrupulously clean. I have seen
irlrla solder cans all day with white
n -
inrnm on aud never scat a spot on
"Oregon is a good dairy state, but
its resources in that direction T
not full developed, owioe to the
lirnnranoe of the farmers. I was
raised on a dairy farm and can go
almost to any farm in the Willam
ette Valley and make it raise 3J
tiro e as much as its owner does."
"I would prepare for dairying by
building a first-class residence,
barns and fences. I would have
plenty of light and ventilation in
the barns and keep them clean un
der all circumstances. Cleanliness
is the first consideration on a dairy
farm. I.would thoroughly drain it
by tile drainago if necessary. I
would havo a supply of fresh, pure
water under all circumstances.
About 87 per cent ol pure milk is
water, and if you give your cows
water from a stagnant pool that is
covered with green Blime and re
ceives all the surface drainage of
the field, what sort of milk can you
expect? I would not feed silo to
the cow". A woman who is nurs-
ing a uaoy aoss not cai picatcs,
because it sours her milk, yet a
farmer feeds his cows silo which
may bo sour and may have the
same effect on their milk. Then J
would find the properties of differ
ent kinds of feed grown in tnis
state and decido which wero the
best to raise. I do not know
enough of Oregon to say just what
thev would be but the feed of cows
should always be something not
deleterious to their milk in taste
or odor. '
"Keep the barns clean, so that
the cows do not get covered with
manure, for some of it will got into
the milk and spoil it Lay stones
around their drinking places, bo;
that ther'wlll not wallow in mud,
and gravel the road. It will all
tell in the quality of the milk and
pay well in the end."
Hatred City of Lhaasn,.
Very little of the world remains
unknown. Thibet will soon be as
well known as China, the sacred
cityofLhassa as little of a mys
tery as Peking. A Russian travel
er. M. Tsybikoff, has communi
cated to the Geographical Society
of St. Petersburg a pretty full ac
count of Lhsssa, where he stayed
for oyer twelve months being an
Oriental scholar and professedly a
Lamite by religion. He found the
land far less populous than is com
monly supposed, and a large pro
portion of its people monks. Lhas-
ft, ho reports, has no more than
10,000 inhabitants, and two-thirds
of these are women. M, Tsybikofl
made a great number of observa
tions on the climate of Thibet, and
has brought away several Thibetan
books on philosophy, medicine,
astronomy and history, besides col
lections of prayers and incanta
tions, written by renowned lamas.
The latter departments are much
more in the way of Thibetans than
philosophy and science. London
