Bone-Dust for Cattle-Bone Disease.
Iesshs. Editors la your article
on salt, ground horns, &c, for cattle,
you recommend feeding them togeth
er a practice which I followed for
several years, until observation con
vinced me that it was wrong. I found
hat my cows ate several times as much
bone when in full flow of milk as when
dry,' and at- such time.? w ould eat salt
o their injury in order to get a supply
of bone. I have since had a partition
in my box, and fed them separately. I
believe bone as necessary as salt for
milch cows, and when kept on old pas
tures is essential to their health, and
improves the quality and quantity of
their inilk. loung cattle cat much
less bone than old ones. My cattle
eat little, if any, until they were seven
or eight years old, but have since eaten
I believe that young cattle never
have the "bone disease;" a complaint
which 1 presume is much more com
mon in its earlier stages than is sen-
erally supposed. I well remember that
when I was "cow-boy," the older cows
were in the summer season sometimes
troubled with a lameness or rather
stiffness of the hind quarters, a sqeak
ing and rattling of the joints, and an
inability to raise their hind feet over
the bars, lhese symptoms always
disappeared as the cows dried up.
-I had then never heard of the bone
disease, but have since (some fifteen
or twenty years ago,) seen a fatal case
of it, and the first systoms were pre
cisely the same as those above de
scribed. The cow was old, and had
been milked two years- in succession
without drying. She lived many weeks
after she was first taken, gradually
rrowin worse until she lost the use of
her hind legs, and would sit on her
haunches eating the grass in a circle
around her her owner still milking
her, as he said for her benefit. A post
mortem examination showed the bones
very dry, particularly at the joints of
the hind quarters. It the cow had
been dried, or fed bone-dust without
drying, she would probably have re
covered. Anatomists tell us that the bones as
well as other parts of an animal, are
constantly being renewed so that that
which is called bone disease, is sim
ply starvation of the bones. A neigh
bor informs me that his cow would cat
but very little bone-dust when kept on
hay from land that had been manured
with bone. My cows consume from
one-half bushel to a bushel each of bone
in . a year. Common ground bone
should not be fed. The article used
is .the clean, dry sawdust and turning
from the button-makers. C. Gent.

Ten Rules to be Cbserreil in Mak
In making good butter there are sev
eral nice operations to be gone through
with, which require an eye to cleanli
ness, forethought, and experience.
1. On milking clean, fast yet gently,
resrularly twice a day, depends the
success of the dairyman, .bad milkers
should not be tolerated in a herd; bet-
cr pay double the price for good ones.
. 2. Straining is quite simple, but it
should be borne in mind that two parjs
about half full each will produce a
neater amount of cream than the same
milk if in but one pan; the reason of
his is the greater surface.
- 3. Scalding is quite an important
feature in the way of making butter in
cool weather; the cream rises much
ouickdr, milk keens sweet longer, the
butter is of a better color, and churns
in one-half the time.
4. Skimming should always be done
before the milk becomes loppered;
otherwise much of the cream turns into
whey and is lost.
5. Churning, whetner oy nana or
otherwise, should occupy fifty minutes.
G. Washing in cold soft water is one
of its preserving qualities, and should
hp rnntinned until it shows no color of
the milk by the use of the ladle; very
hard water is highly charged withjime,
onH must m n, measure impart to it
alkaline nronerties. .
7. Saltinr: is necessarily done witn
the best kind of ground salt; the quan
tity varies according to the state it is
taken from the churn ; if soft, more if
hard, less; always taking taste for the
after about 24
hours, is for the purpose of givin
0. Second working takes place at the
time of packing, and when the butter
has dissolved the salt, that the brine
mnv bo wnrked out.
1 0. Tacking is done with the hands or
with a butter-mall: and when butter i
nut into wooden vessels, they shoul
br ;nnl:rfl turn nr three days in strong
After ech pack
ing, cover the butter witli a wet cloth
and put, a layer of salt upon it; in this
way the salt can easily be removed at
any time, by simply taking hold of the
edizes of the cloth.
Butter made in this way will keep
any length of time required. J.' O.

How to Milk Clean.
Messrs. Editors To "A Michigan
Milkman, who asks for a "hin- sug
ge.ition, or ite:
any of your readers," in regard to de
fective milking, I would give my meth
od of milking. Each milker is requir
ed to milk the same cows as far as
practicable. Each time, and after the
11 Ml 1 1 .
cows are an miiKca, we nein on one
side of the yard, taking them in-rota
tion as they stand, and strip each one
thoroughly. But a little, it is true, is
obtained from each cow, but in the ag
gregate it amounts to something worth
while, particularly when we consider
that it is the very best of the milk, one
quart of which is worth two of the first
milking; and then you are sure -that
the cows are all milked and well milk
ed, especially if the owner be "around,

several years past, and think it repays

time and trouble expended. C. Gent.

Messrs. Tucker & Sox I send you
an extract from a letter I have received
from the well known breeder of Short
Horns in England, and I think the most
successful one in symmetry and qual
ity (Sir Charles Knightly.) He says
"If it is any gratification to know
my opinion as to the breeding of Short
Horns, I- shall have great pleasure in
giving it you without reserve. My
chief objection to the breeding from
large bulls is, that one hardly ever sees
a large animal of any description pos
sessing symmetry, and I have always
endeavored to get as near perfection
in shape as I could.
"It is a common, though I think an
erroneous opinion, that by putting two
animals together, both faultly m shape,
but one having good shape where the
other has bad, that one will correct the
other. You cannot get a perfect herd
of cows but by chance, care, and ex-
nsc you may get a first rate bull.
"My first desire is to get a good
shoulder. T think it by far the first
point to be attended to; and I believe
n general it is little attended to. I
, 1 . T 1 .1
may be wrong, out nave always set
my face against using an upright
shouldered bull. Not only do you
ose the best part of the beef, but I be
ieve you lose constitution. No ani
mal with an upright shoulder can have
a protuberant bosom, and consequent-
y cannot have the same play tor the
ungs, and the most common and tre-
qucnt disease of cattle proceeds from
he lungs. I would, in short, were 1 to
use a faulthj bull, prefer that he should
have every imaginable lault, rather
han a bad shoulder. The two great
faults belonging to the original breed
of Short Horns were upright shoulders
and large high hips, the latter of which
are very much the fashion in the north
of England, but Which I think a dc-
ormity. It gives the animal the ap
pearance of a bad loin when it does not
deserve it, and causes the appearance
of a hollowncss between the hip and
the tail, which otherwise would not be
the case. It ,has been' one of my hob
by horses, tlmt provided the hips are
not too narrow, to have tne nip joint
project as little as possible. I bought
he -Duke of Uloucester contrary to my
own judgment. He had good flesh
and hair, but a3 his calves were young
when I sold them, I cannot form an
oninion as to how they would turn out.

The most uniform lot of three year old
Short Horn steers, fifteen in number

symmetry corresponded, which much
influenced me in favor'of Sir Charles

have gleaned from him and his mode
of breeding. This is the reason I send

J udge Longstrect, of Georgia, whose
views on any subject are sensible,
practical, and worth treasuring, thus
sets forth tha. value of a newspaper :
"Small is the sum that is required to
patronize a newspaper, and most am
ply remunerated is the patron. I care
not how humble and unpretending the
gazette he takes, it is next to impossi
ble to fill a sheet fifty two times a year
without putting in something that is
worth the subscription price. Every
parent whose son is olf from home,
should supply him with a paper. I
well remember what difference there
was between those of my schoolmates
who had, and those who had not access
to newspapers. Other things being
equal, the first were decidedly superior
to the last in debate and composition
at least. The reason is plain they
have command of more facts. Youths
will peruse a paper with delight, when
they will read nothing else."
No Advantages for Education.
It is often said by those who have
risen from poverty to comfortable prop

that they hadn t the advantages of cd

comes to any one who desires it enough
to get it. No one can help being ed

and keeps them open in thi3 world.
