Hay is likewise cut. harvested and
baled by machinery. Then for f«*eding
the silage Is shoveled into a tank that
runs upon an overhead track in front
o f the cows, and a suitable feed Is
deposited In front of each cow. Hay is
brought from the hay to the cow
•table by an adaptation of the horse
fork. The milking machine has done
away with the drudgery o f that
operation. The machine is washed by
power, and milk cans aud palls are
aterilized with a steam je t after being
perfectly cleaned by the Improved
washing powder in the water.

I f it is necessary to stack the hay in
the field it should be protected in some
way from the rain and snow. A good
method is suggested by Kimball’s
Dairy Farmer, as follows: Take three
small wires and weave into them slats
about eight inches wide and four feet
long. These are placed about two feet
apart. The length of the frame will
depend entirely upon the height of the
stack. It should be large enough to
cover the top of the stack well and
keep the hay from lK»ing blown off. I f

plow drawn by horses or a traetiol
motor, rework It with a riding harrow,
put in the corn seed with a riding
planter, do much of the cultivating
with a machine upon which he rides,
drawn by horses, and cut the silage
corn with a horse harvester. The bun

The uuprogressive dairyman falls to
realize that the dairy world not only

Perhaps he Is one of the best of the
old school, yet is at the Lag end o f the
procession of modern improvement,
whereas If lie would get out among
the alert dairymen of the present and

easily a leader In the front of modem

Ben Arnold and I were chains, and
Dorothy Drummond was a witch.
Given a pair o f chums and 'a witch,
and what is the Invariable result? A
quarrel between tlie chums. I f thia
Invariable result bad happened In our
case there would be nothing worth the
tolling. So many such aiTalrs hav*
taken place that they have ceased to
be at least novel. Dorothy said she
would have neither of us, declaring at
the same time that we were more In
love with each other than with any
•no else. I w ill admit that this helped
Ben and me to keep from quarreling,
though neither of us believed her.
W e invented tests to force Dorothy
to show her hand. Whether she was
too smart for us or whether she had
nothing but friendship for either of us
we could not tell. A t any rate not one
o f our tests gave us any Information.
W e conspired to send her invitations
for a drive to take place at the same
hour of the same day, hoping she
would show her preference by accept
ing one and declining the other. The
little m ini accepted both, asking us to
call with an equipage capable of seat
ing four persons, as she wished to
take her grandmother. We were both
furious, but dared not disobey. We
tried to force her to choose one of us
to sit beside her, but she declined to
enter the carriage till all bad been
seated. She was the life of the party,
which must have been a difficult role
to play, for Ben and 1 sat ‘'nursing our
wrath to keep it warm.” When we
banded the two women out, Dorothy
was profuse in her thanks for an In
vitation which had not been given.
One day I told Ben that there was
but one way to force a decision be
tween us. That was to tell Dorothy
If she would have neither o f us she
must lose both o f us. W e would both
*go west.” Ben consented to this at
cnee. He believed the girl loved him
aud when It came to the point of los
ing him would show her hand. I bad
no donbt that I was the fortunate
man and. If a choice was Inevitable,
would be chosen. I f you ask on what
grounds we based these opinions I re
ply that each drew his Inference from
Dorothy's actions toward him. She
gave me her photograph, exacting my
promise not to tell Ben. and gave Ben
her photograph, exacting Ills promise
not to tell me. This sort of trick she
played us In a great variety of ways.
It wan quite natural that each should
deem himself the favored one.
One evening we called on Dorothy
together and stated our proposition.
In order that neither abonld have the
advantage o f being spokesman we
were both spokesmen. Ben msde a
