I t Dairymen everywhere are uwukeulug to the fact that cleanliness Iu the sta ble means better milk and consequent' ly better prices, and any arrangement that will help keep the milk giver out of the dirt should be of Interest The illustration shows a stall that a writer In the Prairie Farmer claims will keep a cow perfectly clean. It Is construct ed as follows: Use a 2 by 4 for bottom of feed rack. Place this throe feet from floor to stall. Use 1 by 4 strips placed about Blx Inches apnrt, forming the rack. The strips should slope back rue nicest fr.ir.fl dia wt it inn poses. It hns two pointers. Before milking you hang the empty pnll on the hook and set tho colored pointer nt 0. Then when you com to weigh the milk you read the weight aa mark ed by this hand. A cprlns balance that can be bought for 25 or 35 cents' will answer the purpose, but will not be ns convenient. A shelf on which the bottles are kept, n record sheet and a lead pencil complete the stable equip ment for testing your herd. It H but a moment's work to hang the milk pall on the scales, read the dial and record the weight. Mixing the milk and tak ing the sample will occupy a few mo ments more, says Kimball's Palry Farmer, but all represent a very little time and a great deal of gain. DAIRY POINTERS.

A bran mash now and then a short time before calving Is most beneficial. If tho udder Is excessively caked and hard, it is well to draw a little milk from It. This will help to ward off inflammation and garget. It's poor policy to use anything but the best bull. A grade has no place at the head of your herd. v Do not move cows faster than a comfortable walk while, on tho way to place of milking or feeding. The breeder who has a definite Idea In view can improve his animals. Tho one who goes at it blindly never can. Too many dairymen do not know whether their cows are payltig or not. They do not know which are the good and which the poor ones. Make a study of the herd of cows. select the best ones, ell the poor ones lustead . n block to floor, then spike the 2 by 4 to blocks, , The cow when eating will stand witv. her html foot just behind the 2 by 4. leaving the droppings behind It When she lies down she will be compelled to lie in front of the 2 by 4, with her head under the feed rack. It is not neces sary to have a gutter in a stall of this kind. There should be short partitions, however, to keep the cows from turn ing arouud. Testing tho Dairy Herd.' Records of the performances of dairy cows form the only accurate and safe basis for judging their value. It is tho constant aim of progressive dairy men to improve their herds, and such improvement must depend largely upon culling the herd nnd getting rid of the unprofit able animals. From the breed ers' standpoint records are esp daily valuable in assisting in finding custom ers for their stock. Many buyers insist on seeing records of dairy per formance before purchasing. A record is al so of great help to the feeder. If he knows exact ly what a cow Is doing he can prepare the ra tion accordingly and often feed more economic ally. Again, a daily milk record en ables a dairyman to detect the ap proach of sickness in a cow and thus to take steps to ward it off. Great In spiration Is obtained from keeping a record, and nothing gives n dairyman more satisfaction than watching tho improved returns from his herd. The scales shown in the illustration is milking shod. If you want a ventilator to draw well, says an Ohio dairyman, run It straight up and do not put uny curve or dips In it, and let no man tell you that the middle of tho barn Is the proper place to have the ventilator. I would rather have four ventilators than one. Sunlight Is the groat natural disin fectant. Sunlight and pure air are two great essentials to tho health of man and beast. . Dark, poorly venti lated and filthy stables are disease breeding grounds. Keep tho stables clean' and let the sunlight and fre:;h air penetrate every nook and corner therein. Provide plenty of window In the stables and fix them so they can be opened and closed with ease ami fnollitr. SCALE FOIl TESTING.
