The feeding value of any substance
depends upon its digestibility and
wholesomeness. Any innoxious vege
table matter may contain nutriment.
Even corn cobs and wood fiber contain
nutritious matter. The Laplanders and

even cows at times subsjst comfortably

trees. Some animals, too, are capable
of digesting foods which would be en

that when the value of any substance

several points are to be taken into con
Tlie chemical composition of any
kind of fodder, is, to a large extent, a
guide to the feeding value of it; for, if
it does not contain any element related
to those of the animai system, the sub

and if it does contain these element*
then the measure of value is clearly
equal to the quantity of these element*
and their digestibility. The table ot

This table needs no comment fur
ther than to call careful attention to it
and urge a thorough study of the fig
ures, not only for themselves but ou
account of the following considera
tions: A comparison of the two sets
of columns will show that there is a
very large loss of the most valuable
portions of the straws because of the
imligestibility of these elementary sub
stances in the albuminoids and the fat,
while more than half of the albumin
oids of hay, and more than three-
fourths of those of cornmeal are di
gested; only one-fourth of the former
and but little more of the latter in
wheat and rye straw are digested; thus
practically all the nitrogen contained
tn these straws is unavailable, and is
lost when they are fed alone. There is
also a surprising loss of the fatty mat
ter in the whole list, excepting in corn
meal, and the samé exception holds
good in regard to other concentrated
food». The same, we venture, to sug
gest, will also apply to the use of
straws as regards their albuminoid
matter, which seems to escape without
digestion, and thus lose a large portion
of their value. How can this loss be
averted? This is a serious problem at
this time, when every possible economy
is necessary in the conduct of the farm
work. Straw is a valuable fodder if it
can be made more digestible. It is
well known by students of animal
physiology that the mixture of concen
trated food with coarser subtances
greatly assists the digestion of the lat
ter. This fact is applied to the aliment
of persons who use butter with bread
and meat with potatoes and coarse
vegetables, and explains the reason
why when potatoes and bread are the
sole food of poor persons, a much
larger total quantity is consumed than
when these are mixed with the more
nutritious aliment. The r< zon is that
a large! quantity of the coarse food is
digested when it is mixed with that
which is more concentrated and more
highly nutritious. To make- straw
more available as food, then, it should
be mixe I with corn-meal or the oil
meals, and a* thorough mastication
and salivation are greatly helpful of
