Ucs Moines, July 1. Last Thursday

ladies were present, made a general
remark that Key Townsend, aged 19,
construed as obscene, thoueh it was
not necessarily such, lie took his lady
companion home, went back and ap

Ware died Fridav. Townsend waived
examination and went to jail. The act
is regarded as premeditated murder.
Danyer, Col., July 1. (Jen. Crook
and Capt. Burke, Aid de-Camp, arrived
here this afternoon, en route to Wash
ington. In an interview this evening,
the General says that the telegraphic
reports that the hostiles are again on
the war path are absolutely without
foundation. In fact, the good opportu
nity to surrender is fully realized, and
further demonstration uy them would
be most disastrous. With Nana, Loco
and Benito subdued, and old Jut a re
fugee from his own tribe, further
trouble is quite impossible.
A MAMMOTH KAILROAD SI1EMK.
Indianapolis, June 29. A tecret
meeting was held at Plymouth Hall
last night in the interest of a new rail
road scheme of great proportions, the
substance of which was as follows:
Two double track narrow gauge roads
are to be built traversing the country
in opposite direction from New York
to San Francisco and from Chicago to
New Orleans, or as the circular states
from ocean to ocean and from Lake to
Gulf. Eight series of stock of S2o.
000,000 each are to be issued and bond
ed. Debt on double track road prop
perly equipped is to be but $20,000 to a
mile, on single track 812,000.

Ilarrisburg, June 30. Rejection of
the trade dollar began this morning,
and by noon every business man and
bank had notices posted that but 85
cents would be allowed for them, caus

THE FAMILY COW.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE MILK YIELD
A very common notion obtains, out
side of breeding circles, that the cross-
bred cow is the best for family purposes
I have frequently heard the suggestion
from those who have no special know!
edge f the merits of the Jersey, other
than that based on her former reputa
tion of being a small but rich milker,
that a cross on the Short-horn or Ayr
shire would give us a splendid famil
cow. Now is tbis idea sound? Th
family cow is needed for milk,
and butter. oCau we not find inch
animal among the pure
out resor ting to a cross.
By common consent the Jersey is re
cognized as the butter breed ; but she
is more than that. Under the fashion
ing of the American breeder she has
been greatly improved, both as abutter
yielder and a milk giver. Years ago
the Jersey was a very small milker, but
breeding has developed a large capa
city in that direction ; so that I think a
well-bred Jersey will take no mean
rank as a milker. I find my two-year-old
Jerseys, as they come in, are giving
twelve to fifteen quarts daily. While
I am not aiming at large milking capa
city in butter animals, yet I have no
objections to haye heifers of superior
butter strains give a large milk yield,
since I know the blood will tell in en
riching the milk with growth of years.
With cows of such capacity fcrmilk it
would not seem necessary to cross with
other breeds to establish the model
family cow. One habit is so marked as
to be almost peculiar to the Jersey, and
that is her disposition to carry her flow
of milk for a long period. This is a
yery important consideration in the
cow for family "use. A large flow for
two or three months, and then a rapid
decline of yield, is very aggravating to
the village housekeeper. The g-eat
trouble I have in breeding is in restrain
ing the flow of milk at th proper time
preceding calving. It is common in
my herd and with well-bred Jerstys
generally, but I have in mind two cows
of my herd lhat are specially noted for
this habit. Butterfly of Hill Top 15635
has been milking more than twelve
mouths ; gives, when fresh, upwards of
eighteen quarts, and is now, within
seven weeks cf her next calving, giving
ten quarts a day. Telka 8037, in milk
over nine months, gives seventeen to
eighteen quarts, when fresh, and is now
giving sixteen quart9 a day. In fact,
her udder gets so full by midday she
should properly be milked three times
a day. Take even the ordinary Jersey
of small yield, and she will probably
give as much milk between two calv
iugs as the ordinary cow of the country.
What may be the object in crossing a
typical Jersey with some pure-bred
animal of another breed I can not ima
gine If we want yield of milk and persis
tency of product, the animal with these
qualifications is already bred, and may
be found in the herdj of a number of
American Jersey breeders, where, if
size is needed, it will be found that
quality has also been considered. What
then, we gain in cross-breeding I can
not see; but the risks we run are very
apparent, In the cross, for instance
of the Jersey with" the Ayrshire, many
think we will increase the flow and re
duce the quality of the milk in the off.
spring. . This may happen ; but I think
tijKiicuue win prove mar. tins cross,
p rcsrtmingHlie Jersey a smaller milker
than the Ayrfhirei will give you a cow
that will take after the more potent
animal of the two. With the two
brceda it will be found that the ttrong
er blood of tho Individual animals will
assert itself and predominate, and in
some cases the produce of this uaiou
will resemble the Ayrshire, and in
others the Jcrsy, in appearance, nnd
butter and milk characteristics. Willi
the acknowledged merits of the Jersey
for milk, cream and butter, I would
fear to loose them'-ly crossing with an
other breed. If the milk should prove
to be too rich, it could be readily re
duced in quality, by the use of food
not so rich in butter or tats ns corn-
meal. Oat meal and wheat middlings
would secure the purpose and build up
the constitution without inereaing the
I confess the richness of Jersey milk
is something wonderful. We recently
brought butter in a few minutes in-
whipping cream to mix with the cus
tard for ice cream; and I recently meas
ured the cream in one of the cans of
my Cooley creamer after the skim-
milk had been drawn off, and 1 found
the cream was more tliau forty live per
cent of the milk. Yet 1 thiuk succu
lent food and wheat middlings would
reduce the quality for richness. Rear
ing of grades, however, by the use of
thoroughbred bulls on native cow, is
to be commended. In such caucs the
thoroughbred bull is almost eertain to
show the impress of his superior blood.
The farmer who does not feel justified
in investing in thoroughbreds should
never use anything but thoroughbred
bulls. I speak advisedly on this sub
ject, as I have seen the advantage of
the farmers in my neighborhood using
my Jersey bulls on ordinary cows. In
fact, the Jersey bull is coming into very
general favor and use in butter dairies
for crossiug on common cows. One
of my neighbors has a large milk dairy,
supplying the city of Trenton with
choice milk. lie is what I call a strong
feeder, but he insists it is necessaiy in
order to produce good milk. Ho feeds
daily four quarts of corn meal in sum
mer, and six quarts hi winter, per head
besides an equal bulk of bran. His
cows he picks up mainly in the conn
try as he can And them, altf ough he is
now breeding some. He is very par
tial to some Jersey grades he owns,
and inclines to increase the breeding of
Tho milk from good Jersay grades is
almost as rich as lhat of the thorough'
bred, and, with his grades highly fed, I
rather fear, in the churning process it
would undergo in carrying it by wagon
over the pavement some butler globules
would be developed, and it might not
be quite so homogenuous or attractive
to tho eye, and so I have advised him
to get Ilolsteins.which are large milkers,
have big frames, and their grades,
highly fed, ought to be large producers
of good milk. My fears in this direc
tion may be groundless, sinae I know
there are parties who claim to sell and
deliver from wagons Jersey milk with
success and satisfaction to their cus
tomers ; but it may first have been re
ducked to the commercial standard. In
a conversation with a milkman who
supplied milk largely to the New York
market, I learned there was the milk
the cow gave and the milk of commerce.
Reducing milk to the commercial
standard was legitimate, and it con
sisted in putting four quarts of water
in a forty-quart can of" milk. He
thought every farmer did it, but the
farmer who used more than this quan
tity of water was adulterating his milk
and cheating the consumer. This habit
may have been practiced by a milk
man to whom I for a time sold pure
Jersey ;milk, and whom I came near
ruining in his business. Discovering it
did not pay me to sell my milk at the
wholesale price I got, I notified the
milkman to look elsewhere for his sup
ply, which he did, but many of his cus
tomers left him, charging that he was
adulterating his milk with water. The
change from Jersey to ordinary milk
was too sudden. I helped him out of
his difficulty by continuing to partially
supply him tor a time, so that he had
opportunity to m ike the change grad
ually. G. W. Far lee.
