To determine definitely the amount
ef filth that gets into milk during the
process of milking and how much this
can be lessened by washing the udders
the following was done:
It was determined after several
trials with three different milkers on
thirty cows that it requires an average
of four and one-half minutes to milk a
■cow. A glazed dish eleven inches in
diameter, the size of an ordinary milk
pail, was placed in the top of a pa!'
end held under the cow's udder in the
same position as when milking. For
four and one-half minutes the milker
the • went through motions similar to
those n in  milking,  but without
drawing any milk. The amount of
dirt which fell Into the dish during the
operation was of course approximately
the same as would have gone Into the
milk during the.milking process. The
dirt caught in the dish was then brushed Into a small glass weighing tube,
the udder washed and the process repeated. The dirt which fell from the
washed udder was also carefully
brushed into a weighing tube. Hoth
tubes were then placed in a desiccator
and after drying twenty-four hours
were accurately weighed ou a chemical balance.
Sixty trials were made at different
seasons of the year. Witb udders that
were apparently clean lt was found
that an average of three and one-half
times as much dirt fell from the unwashed udders as from the same udders after they were washed. With
lolled udders the average was twenty-
two and with muddy udders the average was ninety-four times as much
dirt from the unwashed as from the
same udders after washing. — Illinois
The Reading Dairyman Wins.
I have seen one dairyman with a
beautiful home, large and well ventilated stables, all the product of a herd
of milk cows, and another fanner
with the same old house he built ten
years before, dilapidated stables, gntes
broken, fences down, nil the product
of another herd of cows, equal In number to the first. Why this difference
with the same conditions?
If you go into the home of the first
class of men you will find agricultural
papers; you will find a reader, a man
who has a thinker nnd is using lt. He
may not be a graduate of any agricultural college, but he ls a self educated
man, who received a large part of his
education from the agricultural papers.
How much more advanced he would
havo been If he had learned thc rudiments nt the agricultural college! But
greater honor ls due to self education
than to a college educated man. Still,
If progress was to depend on self education we would resemble the snail instead of the ant
I am a firm believer thut thc duty of
every state ls to placo a premium on
agricultural pursuits. The most Important branch of agriculture ls dairying. The growth of cereals depends
on dairying to return Its elements to
the soil of which the soil has beeu
robbed by their growth. Dairying enriches the soil, while the growth of
cereals impoverishes it Therefore no
branch of agriculture should be fostered and encouraged as much ns the
dairying Industry.—E. A. McDonald.
Washington State Dairy and Food
Oood and Tlately Literature.
The dairy and food department of
Minnesota has recently issued several
Important circulars. One is entitled
"Butter Is King," and is being plnced
In the hands of the farmers of thnt
state. It treats the subject of dairying
briefly, simply and thoroughly. It
shows that it is not necessary for one
to buy a lot of thoroughbred stock to
start ln the business, but that the
proper way is to gradually grade up
one's herd. The matter of feeds is
taken up and instructions given for
the planting of soiling crops ami the
building of silos. There aro ample directions for tlio care nnd hniulllng of
milk, and tbe circular concludes with
the dairy laws of thc state. A second
circular on "Prepnrutlon and Propagation of Pure Commercial Cultures" has
been sent out to thc butter innkers in
tbe state. It treats the subject clearly
and fully.
The "Onlry  Shark."
J. A. Crokctt, dairyman, Utah Agricultural college, hits recently sent out
warning to the butter milkers of his
•tnto against a "ihilry shark" who Is
disposing of a process whereby ho
claims the yield of butter ls increased
from 60 to 100 per cent In excess of
thnt mudo ln the ordinary manner.
Same old fraud that bob! up now nnd
again. All farmers nml dairymen

dry FEEDINGS-/*™.   | ROAD IMPROVEMENT. I   KSTKN cmm mm |
Increasing  In  Favor   Among:  Breeders   Of   t'lllllllt.
The dry feeding system is mooting
witli increasing favor. Breeders who
have tried one season of it claim that
the egg production is increased and
thoy have more uniform growth witli
the young stock, snys Wnllnee's
Former. The feed boxes are kept
filled with n variety of grains, tlie
grit box is full, nnd nlso a box of
charcoal. From these the fowls take
their choice, balancing their own rations ns they do in the summer time
on free range. . i
It hns not boen very long since the
farmer wns censured for letting his
poultry hnve the range of the feed
yards, where was nlways a supply of
corn, and of the barn, with its wheat
ond ont bin. It wns a source of wonder to tho town breeder that under
such conditions the farmer's flock laid
nn egg, yet, they continued to pay the
grocer. Wbere there is n variety of
grains it is not very different from the
dry feed system if chickens nro supplied with pure water, housed warmly
in dry quarters nnd really have access
to the feed bins. If they arc supplied
with grit nnd charcoal the.v will doubtless lay ns woll ns the fancier's fowls
on dry feed nnd free range. j
The  I'Kcftil  Orpington.
The Orpington, the youngest nspirnnt
for fame in the poultry world in Kng-
liuid, is n composite breed that has
been brought by careful crossing of
'  ^ULrfff/
several varieties of fowls with the object of producing n breed thnt would
combine first tinss laying and table
qualities, writes T. B. Hutton in Western Poultry Journal. i
The type ls deep, short, broad nnd
cobby ln body nnd short on leg; tail
rather short nnd compact; the back
should be n nice D shaped curve; carriage bold and upright. |
The Buff Orpingtons of the correct
type are equal to the Dorking in amount
and quality of flesh and in some respects are superior. They lay on flesh
and mature vory easily nnd attain n
greater weight. ,
My own experience after several
years' trying has been that the Buffs j
hare proved themselves to be the most |

Coring the Gapea.
I keep wheat soaking in n smnll bottle of turpentine. If a chick wheezes,
sinillles and rattles ns though it had n
cold, this ls the forerunner of gapes,
Bays an Illinois breeder ln American
Agriculturist. When gapes nre unusually violent nnd fatal a chick may |
begin gaping without showing those.
In such ense the chick is nearly always n gonor. Carbolic acid will belp
hlm if anything will.
l'our n little refined carbolic acid in
a spoon, hold it over a lamp, and dense
white fumes will soon arise. Hold the
chick's head in these, drawing him
away for n second or two to let him
catch his breath. Don't let hlm get I
his hill in tbo acid. If you look at the
add in the spoon beforo you pour lt
back in tbe bottle you can often see
Uie tiny red worms that the fumes
made the chick cough up. Five cents'
worth of ncld will doctor dozens of
chicks. If the chick is only coughing,
two or three grains of the wheat or u
tiny piece of usnfetidn may cure hiin.
If he Is still wheezing the next day
repeat the dose. I never failed to kill
n chick that I gave both carbolic ncld
and turpentine in one day.
Chicken* and Bacteria.
Some Certnnn experiments nre reported iu which chicks were hutched
out nnd fed in such n wny and under
such condition! ns to exclude nil bacteria, snys American Poultry Journal.
The chicks nte well nnd regulurly and
apparently digested their food normally. Nevertheless they did not gain In
weight and died after about twenty
days. Upon examination the droppings
wero found free from bacteria, other
chicks fed normally gained about three
times their original weight during the
same period. Part of the chlclis used
in the test wore Inoculated with lutes-
Iluni bacteria from normal chicks, nfter which thoy soon became strong and
gained in weight.

In Highway Building.
The present general movement for
better roads and the prospect of na-
tlonul nid in rond building have greatly
stimulated the study of the best methods of rond building.
While to the genernl public the idea
of building permanent roads ts to use
broken stone, after the system first
employed by John Macadam about tho
year 1785, othor methods should be
carefully studied in order to build the
best and most durable roads at the
lowest cost.
It seems a remarkable fact. In view
of the great Improvements in everything connected wilh modern life, that
we nre still building our roads the
same way they were built over ICO
years ngo, says the Waynesboro (l':u
Herald. Tbis resulted from the universal introduction of the railroad,
which cnused the Improvement of our
common roads to be sadly neglected ns
woll as advancement in the art of
building them.
A great obstacle In the wny of building durable roads of crushed stone is
found in the lack of suitable slonc in
most localities where good rond stone
Is found. In New York state, for Instance, where road building has been
vory active ln recent years, stone has
boon shipped over 300 miles ln bouiu
instances In order to obtain stone of
good quality.
The lack of good road material has
caused careful study of various methods of road building by experts, with
tho result that for general use n modification of the old stone wheel truck
or trnmwny roads, which have been In
constant use for over n hundred years
without material wear or cost, has
boen highly recommended. The old
tramway roads could only be built nt
reasonable cost ln a few localities having suitable stone, but by substituting
paving brick for the stone slabs this
superior form of road cun be cheaply
built in every locality.
In fnct, oven in the favored localities
where good road stone ls abundant the
use of these brick wheel tracks considerably decreases the first cost of roads,
while they practically do awny witli all
repair expenses ns well ns the dust and
mud nnd at the snme time enable threo
to four times the load to bo hauled
with the same team force.
This improved method of road building has been adopted in a number of
localities and thc cost has been found
to be from $1,200 to $2,000 a mile, according to the relative cost of materials, labor, etc., while the average
cost of crushed stone roads hns been
about $9,000 a mile in New York, wbere
the greatest amount of road building
has recently been done.
A section of this brick truck road in
the United Stntes department Of ngrl-
CUlture grounds during the Inst four
seasons shows no material wear nnd
has beon uniformly free from dust,
mud nnd ruts during that time, while
an adjacent section of crushed stone
road hns been nearly ruined during
the snme time, pnrtly by the washing
of wnter.
For hilly ronds these brick wheel
tracks nre especially adapted, ns by
depressing the trucks below the adjacent road surface the water Is successfully carried down the hills on
them without washing thc roadwny
and without the use of the objectionable wnter brenks, besides enabling
threo times the grade to be used without disadvantage.
Government rond ofticlnls recommend
thnt long term convicts be employed iu
penitentiaries In making the brick, ec
ment, etc., for these roads, and short
term convicts be used lu making the
ronds, to the mornl and physical betterment of the convicts, and claini that
In this wny the building of these superior and most durable of roads sliould
cost but $800 to $1,200 a mile In many
localities. This makes an interesting
comparison with the cost of $i),()00 n
mile in New York state for crushed
stone roads, some of which have been
nearly ruined by two or three years of
use, while wheel tracks similar to the
brick tracks, built of stone, near Albany, N. Y„ ln ISM, nt tt cost of $1,600
n mile, show vory little wear In more
than seventy years of constant nnd
heavy traffic.
If convicts woro thus employed In
such penitentiaries ns Sing Sing, Now
Vork, for Instance, Whore Ilie best of
brick clays could be delivered at very
low cost by boat, nnd from which the
brick, etc, could he cheaply shipped

thus enabling the greater part of tlio
proposed New York and Chicago road
to be htillt by this superior system and

and lasting benefits,

Bill some in the coming election; but
will it? Keep your eye on tlie result
of the polls in the mining camps.
Public opinion in the maritime pro-
■ vinces is veering strongly to the Conservatives, who confidently expect a
majority from that section in the dominion elections. To demonstrate the
Conservatives' hold on the count ry,
note the reception tendered Hon. Mr,
Borden, leader of the opposition, on

With B dominion election in sight,
the Nelson News sees everything these
days through political glasses. Hence,
when Tiik Dbill mentioned recently
a number of strikes (if ore on various
properties in the Slocan lake district.
the News seeks to favor the Liberals
by laying the responsibility for the
strikes to the leud bounty, The botin
ty had as much to do with those
strikes, or the operation of the properties, as the price of wheat in Manitoba.
All the fortunate properties are dry
pre propositions and the lead bounty
does not iullttenee them. As fur Hie
bounty having Improved things in the
Country, it can with equal justice and
fairness be said that since the bounty
went, into effect population in the
Sloean towns has steadily decreased
and general business fallen off. No,
the gradual Improvement In mining In
the lake region is due to the persistent
labors of claim  owners  and lessees,
encouraged by the profitable operation
of such mines as the Enterprise and
Ottawa. Politics have .nothing to do
with the situation, and it would look
better were the News to eut tlmt item
out of iis comments on the. country's
advancement. It is jusl possible, too,
thai the uml,milled natural resources
of the Slocan would get a fairer show
if .some others would pay lew attention to Ottawa and its political iuiin.
