The skim milk calf hat come to stay
If en have learned by experiment and
by careful feeding that skim milk ii the
cheapest and best feed for a calf, espe
cially for the dairy calf. The greatest
trouble is the danger of over-feeding.
Most people seem to think that because
skim milk isn't very rich they must
give the ealf lots of it, so they pout
it down him by the bucket, without
stopping to think what a calf's stomach
Is like, and the result is that they soon
hare lot of "pot-bellied" calves,
writes J. L. Smith in the Kansas
When the calf is a few days old he is
taken away from the cow and pnt into
pen or shed to be taught how to drink
skim milk. Then the fun commences.
If the calf will not drink the milk right
off, and is a little stubborn, the fellow
who is trying to feed him usually gets
mad, Jumps straddle of the calf's neck,
. backs him up in a corner, grabs-hold of
the calf's head with both hands,
and rams it down in the milk to the
bottom of the pail. Then the calf gets
mad and bawls, and tries to get away,
gets strangled, nnd finally succeds in
spilling the milk.
It is best to have s little patience
with the calf, and remember that it
does not have very much sense at first.
After it has sucked the cow two or
three times it should be taken away
and put in a good, clean pen and fed
on its mother's milk for & week or
two. Then begin to gradually reduce
the whole milk and add a little skim
milk each day, until within a couple of
weeks it will be on skim milk alone.
A good substitute for the fat removed
is a little cornmcal given after drink
ing. This will also keep them from
sucking each other. Over feeding, ir
regular feeding, or feeding cold, sour
milk is apt to cause scours with the
To feed skim milk fresh from the
hand separator on the farm is the best
way, because it is always warm and
sweet. The skim milk from the cream

ing hsu by means of a small door in
the front of the trough. With a tight
cover the water in the trough can have
the chill removed very easily. It is es
pecially important to have the iron
box as low down in the trough as pos
sible, so that the water at the bottom
of the trough may be warmed, as well
as that at the top. If possible let the
end compartment extend below the
main body of the trough, so that the
iron box may open into the lower part
of the trough. As the water is heated
it will rise and the colder water from
the bottom be drawn in to be heated
in its turn. E. L. Henry, in Farm and
Milk Absorbs Bad Odora.
You cannot feed moldy hay, bad
silage, musty corn fodder that has
been put into the mow when it was not
in shape to go there, and get good
milk. The use of any such materials
will get you into trouble and will of
itself prevent you from making high
grade milk. No feed that has an odor
should be permitted to remain about
the stables. You may set a vessel
filled with milk in a silo for an hour;
then, if yon take it oft and heat it,
yon can tell by the nose it has been
in the silo. At the Vermont station
we could heat the milk up to 110 de
grees and by the smell tell whether
it bad been near a hog pen or not.

AFTER coming to Redwood. Far
son Wentworth bad had to en
dure as best ha could the attention!
of several unmarried ladies of the
parish. These attentlona took ahape
on the evenintr of his arrival.
H found a beautiful table laid
n the dining-room, adorned with
precious bits of silver and china and
odorous with flowers. A particularly
beautiful vase bore a card announcing
that the supper was "the compliment
of Miss Sophronia Kesbitt." The par
son ate the supper without thought of
the donor save that it was a most deli
cate welcome, but stood aghast when
he entered his bedroom and found it
likewise adorned with flowers, the
snowy bed turned back invitingly, mon
ogrammed towels and even a befrilled
night garment conspicuous in its po
sition. The pincushion, an elaborate
affair in dotted Swiss and lace over
blue, was adorned with an inscription
in pins: "Welcome, dear brother!"
and in front of a very rampant water
color in a gilded frame over the mantel
was another card announcing that
Miss Cella Smickler had prepared this
room with her best "compliments."
Descending the stairs, he found the
small parlor or study had been like
wise furnished and adorned by Miss
Julia Bowles, from embroidered foot
rest and tidies to a lava smoking set,
which made the parson stare.
"How did she know about my after
supper cigar?" he wondered. It was
his one weakness.
Alfaretta, the middle-aged help in
the kitchen, afforded the parson no lit
tle consolation. She was evidently on
the side of celibacy, and she sniffed
contemptuously over the onslaughta ef
the three maiden ladies.
"I doubt if you can hold out, air,"
she said, grimly, a few days later.
"Miss Cely was here this morning, and
the sewing circle is going to begin on

"They are so great on table linen I

It was certainly the turn of the
Bowles party to do something supe
rior. In the meantime Parson Alpheus
had spent Sunday with Judge Bowles
at Maple Side; had taken tea with Miss
Celia's aunt and attended a family din
ner at Dr. Nesbltt'a. He had gone on
his way without displaying any pref

"He says it's infectious," replied MJss
Sophy, "and Brother Wentworth has

"Don't you dare got" shrieked her
aunt, "you'll bring the fever home."

in the meantime be sitting unthought
of and .nncared for, nghast at the
crowds that daily throng the counters
of his competitor and bitterly bewail
ing the bad luck which has followed
his own venture into trade. Yet he
has no one to blame for it but himself.
Some persons might consider that
old Commodore Vanderbilt was dis
honest because he did not refund the
money which the stockholders of the
Hudson River & Harlem railroads
would have made if they had contin
ued to hold their stock after ha took
hold of the roads. But he was not.
They cheated themselves out of the
money by not being far-sighted
enough to hold on to their stock.
When the commodore had made $20,
000,000 in shipping of various sorts he
looked about for something good In
which he might Invest his capital. He
found these railroads, which were
then in a most deplorable, out-of-date
condition the stock only worth $S on
$100 and the bonds you could not sell
for love or money. But he took hold,
built new bridges, put all modern im
provements into the car service, advo
cated new signal systems, in short, he
infused new blood into the entire
service of the road at an enormous
outlay of capital and then he waited.
And all the capital came back, bring
ing much additional wealth with it.
I hare seen many men who have be
come wealthy through dishonest
methods, and my experience with
them has taught me this: That most
men who gain wealth dishonestly, if
they live long enough,' get poor again.
It is almost an invariable rule.
The mailt temptation with which
the ordinary business man of to-day is
beset is the temptation to misrepre
sent his capital or business prospects,
snd thus obtain greater credit. But
don't do it. It does not pay. The old,
old adage, "Honesty is the best poV
Icy," Is the safest motto for every
bukliiL'iis man to follow. ' And I know
what I am talking about, too.
"Be gool and, you'll be happy, but
you won't have a good time," may
sound very snmrt and elicit rounds of
applause, but It is a fallacy through
nnd through. It Is easier, much easier,
