, • —Rie and Henry Stoddard
A cow should never. be overfed.
She should never be allowed,to fall
off in her milk,' either in quantity or
quality. Her •feeding - should-be as
regular as her milkinti. In summer
strict watch should be kept, of the
pastures. If they ,begin to fail; than ,
'other feed should'be supplemented—,
either fodder, corn or some other"
cereals. An extra good cow ought
on no account - to be forced to giv . e
milk beyond her norma l ' quantity.
If this is done it will- be ;at the ex- ,
pense of her constitution as well as
that of her progeny. Beyond ,a ra
tional amount of food, even if the
animal can digest it, there can ber4io
profit. Aaain, no two'co*-§ will eat
the same amount of food, while; per
haps-I', one cow prefers adittle'ditier
ent feed from :another; and to these
points the feeder should payia 'good
deal of attention. See that they all
have enough, none of them to much:
- Then if one cow prefers a finer and
anotl . er will eata coarser grown hay
see that they are fed according to .
their preferences, and do not have
the coarse hay fed to one which pre
fers fine and the fine to the one that
would eat the coarse. - If the cows
have to drink from any place other
than brook or river do not turn out
More than two at a . time. Many of
our hired men expee r t a cow to drink
-like a horse, which they certainly do
not: Lead a horse to, the:troagh
and he will drink immediately or
riot. at all, but a cow will usually
stand and look, wet her lips and sip
a mouthful half a dozen time's before
she begins to drink in good earnest.
Some cows, hoWever, will drink im
diately. But in case
_of either cows
or horseproper caie cannot be tak

%yell understood ; and wlioever un
dertakes to. make the most of his
stock must make every individual
one a, special study. If bows are
watered out of a pail it may be found
that one aninial will drink only from
a certain pakand if :v is made
it will be iristantly detected. Few
.cows will eat hay that another 'cow'
has breathed upon. It is well to hu

It is the general eu§tom to seed
grass after some grain - cropsos wheat,
oats or barley ; but When it is desir
ed to get a field -into grass in the
. quickest possible time thiN practice,
need not be followed, says the Amer
ican Agrieultari4. Grass and clo
ver seed may he sown this month
with the probability of success. This
is not without risk; a dry spell may
prevent the seed from •germinating
until the season of growth is pretty
well I•assed; when only a poor "catch"
will be obtained A shelter to tt7:
young grass and . (d r over plant that
protect them from the hot sun, and
at the same tinte prevent the soil
becomincr too dry, •is very de
striabid. ~ For this purpose no crop is
better adapted than white turnips
which grow quickly, and with their
broad leaves make - protectiOn to the
rTass seed and yOung piants and
shade for the soil. For the good- of
the Frass it is not' best to have the
turnips grqw very large, otherwise
there maylbe.danger -from smother
ing; but at i fair yield of turnips - may
he secured 'with no &diger to the
crass. The turnips should be pulled
early, at which time the clover will
.be well started, and will soon thick
en up and cover the ground before
winter sets in.
A correspondent of the Indiana
Farmer girps some sensible advice
concerning the treatment of' sheep.
For cold weather they need good
shelter. Feed clover hay in a square
box-rack 3 feet high and 3 feet wide,.
running the whole length of the shed,
with second plank out from bottom
to admit their beads. Never feed
corn except in freezing weather;
then half an car, with husk on, to a
sheep is sufficient. Give a :small
amount Of salt mixed with sulphur
once a week—old Illanawha salt, as
all other kinds of salt have a tenden
cy to scour stock of all kinds. Sul
phur and laid under the armpits of
lambs will drive away ticks. Ewes ,
Should all be tagged. . By laying
them on their backs in a frame made
with supports like a saw-buck this is'
easily done.. Shear abOut • the first
of June. By - this time the eke will;
be melted, making the wool heavier
and fuller of life. As to the gad fly,'
bore holes With a two-inch auger in
a log or stump and fill with pure
pine tar. A little salt on top will
lead the sheep to smear' their noses:
Sheaf oats May be fed by making a
running !noose Of cord and hanging
the sheares just high enough to reach.

Owner. A sheep out of conditionl is
subjected to aliments that in go - cil

him. Sheep fat in the fall will go
through the winter and the ordeal of `
lambing with safety and success. If

and most of its dependencies the
roads are made directly by the -State
or under its supervision. As a result.
the- contrast:between English roads
