ERINGING UP CALVES.
tlllk la the Hi-Hi Itll-Aronnd Knoil.Ilut
it la ii,- , Means iniiinpeui-
In the admirable paper on rearing
and feeding commercial cattle, which ,
he read recently at UlaagoW, W. S. Fer
guson declared that milk was the only
proper food for young calves. .None
of the several so-called substitutes, in j
his opinion, could efficiently take Its '
place. Naturally this somewhat sweep
ing statement has not been allowed to I
pass unchallenged. Farmers, as well
as others closely Interested, dispute
the accuracy of the assertion, and are
toady With practical evidence of the
utility of the artificial calf foods. Mr.
Ferguson would probably have been
correct had he merely stated that milk
was llie beat foo'd for young cuives, but
to say thai milk is the only calf fooil und
that it could not be iidvnutngeously
substituted, is to assume more thun tho
facts warrant. Milk admittedly may
make the best calves, but that does not
necessarily mean that it is the most
economical food to use In calf rearing.
The point ns to what method of rear
ing is the befct one to adopt, like so many
other selections which the former is
culled on to make, depends largely oa
the market value of the different ar
ticles. A good outlet for new milk may
easily render it a prohibited article for
calf rearing, but, contrary to what Mr.
Ferguson's assertion would imply, thnt
does not mean that milk selling and calf
rearing are Impossible pursuits or im
practicable on the one farm. Thanks
to the several tinely balanced and
wholesome artificial preparations on
the market the farmer may sell his milk
when prices advise that course and yet
continue to rear good rent paying
calves. In short, milk, if the best of
articles, is ant now indispensable, and
may not be the most prolitublc food for
calves. i.i miii in Chronicle,
1'eni'li luu ColeS to Drink.
Nature teaches the calf to turn Its
mouth upward to get Its food. The un
willingness of the calf to put its head
down Into a pail is the result of instinct.
Some have thought to offset this in
stinct by never allowing the ciilf to suck
its dam even once. Dut we think this
injures the calf. It needs stimulation
when first born, und should be allowed
to get it in the way most natural to it.
In sucking the teat the milk cornea
slowlv, and a (rood deal of saliva Is
"llxe1 '1tn ll- !illt after once sucking
its dam the calf should be tuucht to
drink oul of n pall and to put its head
lwn when eating. It will need to be
pretty hungry to do this readily, and
the finger should be used, placing it
first in the calf's mouth, and then put
ting the finger into tho milk. So soon
ns the culf gets fairly to drinking the
finger should lie withdrawn. Ameri

The writer does not believe in
fining the diet of fattening animal-
tirely to corn, except, perhaps, durio
the lust week or two of life. Corn i
too carbonaceous to enploy nlone. H
feeding nitrogenous foods in conncfl
tion with com we are following n m
reasonable and scientific method, bm
are Biire of securing increased weifl
us well as better quality of meat ;:ro
uets. Clover and alfalfa are the icle
forage crops for sheep, hogs and ciittla
nnd young animals in general cannd
have a better life than to run upon pafl
tures, upon which these leguminuul
plants are making thrifty growth;
tlie mature stock prepurinir for till
hsmbles should also get plenty
clover or ulfaifu (either green or drta
into hay), in connection with their i
tious of grain.
There can lo no doubt but thnt bee IB
