came to me and said: "I have betm
trying to make some money out of
my herd of cows. They are grade
Shorthorn cows, and the best I can
get them to do Is 150 pounds of butter
per cow, and I have worked hard."
Now, he BHked me what be should do,
and be said very feelingly: "I. can't
stand It to work the year round for
such small results. Shall I sell off
these cows and go and buy dairy
cows?" "I think not," I said. "Well,
what will I do'" I said: "You want
to raise dairy cows, don't you J You
don't want to fool away your time
with poor cows. You want good
cows." "Yes." "Well, you , go and
buy the best Jersey bull that you can
find and If you pay a good, high price
for him, the better and put him at
the head of your herd.". He did so.

my good farmer friends, I want to
show you something. When the
daughters of that sire came into milk,
at four years of age, his average was
275 pounds of butter per cow. That
is what blood did when bred In the
right direction. Iu one remove from
that bull It made a difference of 125
pounds of butter per cow. W. D.

nulllnv Crop For Auiciiht Sowlncr.
Our llrst soiling crop harvested lu
the spring Is rye. It is one of the
most useful, and yet It Is unsatisfac
tory to many because It Is not cut soon
enough. To get ttie best out of It cut
just as soon as it begins to come Into
head. Then it Is very digustiMc and
palatable, but quickly loses iu digesti
bility. Sow one plat In August, fer
tilising well. The heavy fall growth
causes the plants to store up nitrates
ready for spring use. and the plants
start iii quickly, reaching the feeding
stage live or six days earlier than a
second plat seeded late anil less well
fertilized. In this way the feeding piv
rlod of rye can lie made to cover four

The cow that gives a pailful and a

ableness of the milker depends upon
three things the quality of the milk,
the persistence of lis Mow and the
amount. The second point is frequent
ly overlooked. Kvery cow should have
some time each year for a rest be

that Is never dried up will not last
as long as tin? one which takes a rest
of from four to six weeks. We ad

H. B. Corlee Before Maine Slt
Bonrd ot Agriculture.
The cows are groomed about a half
hour before milking, and then, Just
In advance of the milkers, a man goes
with a pall of warm water warmed
when the season requires It and a
sponge for cleansing the udders. Oae
man can cleanse the udders for nine
or ten milkers If the cows are conven
iently situated. In my early work I
had each milker go over his row of
cows and cleanse them before cleaning
himself up. But I soon discovered, as
the cows were put from the other sta
bles Into this certified milk stable, that
there was very soon a shrinkage In
the milk, and It worried me. I did not
know what to think. My first thought
was that the cows had been injured by
the tulH'reulin test. Finally 1 evolved
this Idea that manipulation of the ud
der in the cleansing stimulated the se
cret Ion of milk, and to get the best re
sults you must follow that right up
and relieve the eow of her milk at
once or else there Is a reaction tlmt
makes trouble. That solved the whole
Then we discarded the first fftw
streams of milk from each cow. It
has not much value anyway; there Is
not much fat In It. We milk through
an absorbent cotton strainer applied to
the top of the pall. This Is regular
surgeon's cotton. It Is placed between
two layers of gauze and put over tue
top of the pall and fastened there. The
pall Is emptied through a coverwd
spout, so the pail Is not opened; only
the spout Is opened when the milk of
each cow is weighed. From the barn
this milk is carried in cans to the milk
bouse, and there It Is put through a
That "Animal Odor."
You cannot have milk that is right
and do the milking in a stable that Is
full of floating life. The milk that
comes from the udder of a healthy
cow, after the first few streams are
taken, which rinse ut the milk chan
nel, is practically sterile. The germs
get Into the milk from the impure and
Insanitary surroundings. I have seen
men who seemed to think that the
germs were a part of the milk. They
would talk about the animal odor and
seemed to think that the milk had to
have It, when me facts are that the
animal odor Is filth, pure and simple.
If we will take care of our cows and
our milk: with the neatness with which
the women prepare the. balance of our
food, we shall have no trouble with an

How Farmers In a Mlnaonrt County
Bntlt Fine HlKhwaja.
The methods used In obtaining funds
to build "subscription roads" In Boooe
county, Mo., were described a few days
ago by W. B. Cauthorn, an engineer In
Columbia who helped and who directed
the building of some of the finest high
ways In that part of Missouri, says the
Kansas City Star. "I don't think Amer
icans like the toll Idea," Mr. Cauthorn
said, "especially when they are pay
ing taxes too. The subscription road
Is more popular than the toll road. In
preparing to build the Columbla-MtS-
Ico free highway the promoters start
ed with nothing except confidence.
They were laughed at, but they said,
'Let us build oue mile aud you'll want
twenty.' And that was true. The
county court subscribed half the
amount needed. The property owners
adjacent to the first mile put up the
"That was the start. It attracted
others living farther away, and they
ottered to subscrllie for a mile, bo that
the first contributors were given two
miles of highway for the price of oue.
Others Joined In, and the work contin
ued, the cost to each subscriber being
what he paid for one mile, and yet he
had the use of the whole road. It Is to lie
extended tills summer III the same way
until it Is thirteen iiillis long, all free
highway. The highest subscription out
side that from the county court was
$100. The sums ranged from $5 to
$lou. Farmers were allowed to give
$."i(l lu work. One man who owned six
ty acres gave $100 and worked It out.
He said the road added 25 per cent to
the value of his land."
"We've ben hauling rock," a farmer
said. "Some of us have got plum tired
waiting for laws. We're going to build
two roads this season, each five miles
long, by the subscription plan. They'll
be free roads. The county will contrib
ute one-half the cost. The more we
get of these roads the more the farm
ers demand them. 1 know- one mau
who gave Jl.thHl, and he owns only
."OH acres. That's the effect of road
agitation In a community. We get
subscriptions from abutting property
and from benefited districts. Every
one who goes near the road is asked U
help, and they all do it."
