Indications of a Good Milker.
Mr. Geo. W. Ogden of Lexington,
Ky., asks how he may be able to tell by
inspecting a calf or cow, that it will make
a good milker. -
To the initiated this is rery easy; he
will scarcely be mistaken one time out of
twenty ia making his selections. But to
convey this knowledge to another, by the
pen alone, is .impossible ; the. most we
can do is to give a few general rules to
guide Mr. O. in. selecting. We could
give hirn more information, orally, in one
hour with us among a herd of'cows and
calves, than if we were to write a volume.
What a misfortune that farmer's sons are
are not taught these things, as well as
many others of great practical value re
lating to their profession. Are they not
as important to them as reading, writing,
or arithmetic? And still more import
ant than much they are required to learn
at school. But to the question.
There are three points in a calf or cow
which indicate great milking qualities.
The most important and certain of these,
especially in the calf, is the udder. This
should be broad and full, extending, well
forward along the belly, and well up be
hind ; the skin rather soft and elastic,
neither thick nor thin; and the hair
around of a silky touch The teats
should be of good size, placed rather wide
apart, and at right angles to each other,
the ends slightly pointing out in an obli
, It is a favorable indication for the udder
to show a fifth or even sixth teat, though
these should be much smaller than the
others, especially in the grown cow. In
the calf the relative difference may not
be so great.
The second important consideration is
milk veins, which should be large and
These will be well devel
oped several moulhs berore tne neiter
drops her first calf, and iiwambly show
large ever after. We never knCw a cow
wite such veins that did not give a iaie
quantity af .milk whatever the quality
might be ucless some accident had hap
pened to her, or she had been very im
properly managed. ' We have also knfiwn
cows that were great milkersx which did
not show large milk veins, but these are
mere exceptions to the general rule.
The third important consideration is
the escutcheons- Of these a pretty ac
r.nrate notion mav be obtained bv perusinar
JTRTPiTFU (HO Guenon's little work on this subject, pub-
Main Street, near the U.S. Land Office, in Brownville uwus, uuwc.u, ui mu"6 v
where they have opened out and areofferlng on the most a est as the udder and milk veins. We
favorable terms, t . i. r V,,Vh
has been considerable in these matters;
though we know there are many who are
so enthusiastic as to look upon the es
cutcheens as the only infallible point in
dicatinar a erood milker. Perhaps this ap-
other things Everybody plies more particularly to the large Flem
ish breed of cows than to any otner; as
thesa were Guenon's models.
In addition to the above, there are oiher
points which may be taken into considera-
IIow to 6roi7 Peanuts-
A correspondent of the Country Gentleman,irri
ting from Scott s 11111, N. CnsT3 u The principal
crop raised in this vicinity ia the pesnnt, or ground
peas aa -they axe called. They promise to be very
good, aa the season baa boca very faroraWe forthem.
In z&j section of the country, there are one hundred
thousand lashelj raised. We consider them mora
profitable than cotton, where the land is suitable for
their culture. The following is the mode of cultiva
ion. The ground is well broken and then checked
off two and a half feet each way. Two shelled peas
in the hill. After they are up, they are cultivated,
by running a sweey aixteen or eighteen inches in
width both ways, after which the ground fa stirred
well around the plant, and all the grass taken out
Very little dirt pot aiound the plant, aa nearly leTel
culture is the best. This process of working must
be continued two weeks, until they meet and oover
the1 ground, when the grass will cease to grow, which
is abouir three months from the time of planting.
The pea grows entirely ia the ground. They blos
som as the field pea, but they put out a stem from
the bloom which penetrates the ground about throe
inches, when the pea forms on the end of it. They
are dug with a plow made for the purpose, passing
under the bunch, of sufficient depth to loosen the
ground, when the bunch is drawn from the ground,
and set up until they are thoroughly dry, when the
are put in stacks and picked off at leisure. It Ua
difficult matter for an experienced person to know
when they are ripe enough to dig ; but when nearly
all the leaves are shed, they will do for digging.

Catting off Cows Teats.
Cows sometimes have extra teats, giv
ing little or no milk, and often very much
in the way of milking. These may
readily be removed, according to a state
ment of S. Edward Todd, in the Boston
Cultivator, and we copy his account of one
" Some four years ago, otte of my best
cows (then a hejfer) had a teat, as large
as a man's thumb, close to one of the
hindermost teats. The calf would suck
it. but we could not milk it, because it was
so small and so close to the large one.
As such an arrangement was very un
pleasant when milking, I ventured to try
an experiment at removing the small one.
The cow was tied securely in tne stall by
her head, and her two hind legs tied to
gether, so that she could not kick, Now,
with the pliers, l twistea tne enas ot a
piece of very small wire together, after
it had been put round tne teat close to tne
roots or large end of it, the wire was
twisted up so tighly, that all circulation
was cut off; and in about three or four
weeks the teat dropped off; and the base
of it healed up neatly, leaving no issue.
The teat has never given us any trouble
since. It never produced soreness in the
udder, as I feared it might, while the wire
was on it, and after the teat dropped off,
healed in a few days.'
Salting Cheese Experiments.
A writer in the Dairy Farmer details a couple of
experiments in the columns of that journal. We
copy the followsng
In June, 1863, I finished a fow cheeses in this
manner: When my curd was scalded, (I practice
through scalding,) I threw into the Tat about four
quarts of salt sometimes only three for a cheese of
50 to 60 pounds, stirring thoroughly. Those which
went into the hoop before being well coolod off, acted
badly; but when I took time and means to cool suf
ficient the cheeses were very fine. Cn the whole,
I did not like the process and abandoned it.
In 1860, I commenced again, changing the pro
gramme, as follows : After the scalding I drew off
the whey, leaving just enough to float the card, and
began to cool off, hurrying the process by pumping
in cold water and changing often. Then, to curd of
say 60 pounds, a little more less, I threw In some
times three and sometimes four quarts of salt, and
stirred till well cooled then drew off the salted
whey, and threw it on the compost heap put the
euro. press, and pressed rapidly and thoroughly.
And now for ii? result. I lost from my whey tub
about threa pails of wisej and ome salt. I gained
n this, that my drip'picg tub unaCr he press never
tad a particfe of cream rise upon it, and in having
a cheese that gave ttle bo trouble in curing, and that
when sent to market sold for the very highest price,
and called forth the unqualified approbation of deal
ers as being perfect in all respects fbca flavored
very solid not porous and very fat.
RellCTing Cnoked Catlid.
"A Portland correspondent of the Jfew
England Farmer gives the following easy
and simple remedy. If any of our read
ers have occasion to try it, will they please
write us the result: " Tke instant a
creature becomes choked, no matter what
with, the throat becomes dry, and the
onger the substance reraains the dryer
he throat. The following 13 a sure
remedy. Take some oil, no matter what
kind, and hold the creature's head up and
turn down about one gill of oil, and then
let go of the head, and the creature will
heave it out in two seconds? I have tried
it for years, and knew it to fail."
Best Depth for Setting 3111k.
A correspondent of The Homestead re
lates the following experiment i
On the 8th of April we set two pails of
milk, weighing forty-seven pounds ten
ounces, in two tin pails ten inches deep.
The next day we set thesame quantity
of milk from the same cows twro inches
deep in pans. These were placed on the
same shelf with the first, and of course m
the same temperature, which was near
60'1. In four days the first milk was sour
and was skimmed, yielding three pounds
two ounces of cream, which being allowed
to stand one day, made one pound eight
ounces of butter. The othor milk, stand
ing the same length of tirue, yielded four
pounds eight ounces of cream, making
two pounds one ounce of butter, a dif
ference of nine ouocesin faver of setting
the milk shallow. This is a gain of 37
1-2 per cent, over the depth of ten inches.

position ty the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise, and the presevering efforu
to force slavery into the Territory of Kan

against the known wish of an overwhelm'
ing majority of the people.
-2. That leading Southern politicians
have, for thirty years, been resolved to
break up the Union as soon as they ceas
ed to control the United States Govern
ment, and the slavery question was but a
pretext for keep up agitation and rallying
3. That the South has levied an unpro
voked war against the Government of the
United States, the mildest and mostbeni
ficent in the world, and has made it the
duty of every good citizen to rally to its

the disunionists would not wait for oteut

To Keep Batter Sweet.
Dr. Edson Smith contributes to the
American Agriculturist the following di
rections for preserving butter in good
condition for any length of time. In
May or June, when butter is plenty, work
it thoroughly two or three times, and add
to the last working nearly one grain of
saltpeter and a teaspoonful of pulverized
loaf sugar to each pound of butter. Pack
it tightly in stone jars to within two inches
of the top. and fill the remaining space
with gtrong brine. Cover the jars tighly,
and bury them in the cellar bottom, where
the butter will te keyt unhurt for a long

Get stone pillars for the foundation,' a
foot square, and to stand 2 1-2 feet high,
and for the top a piece of sheet iron 8
inches wider than the top of the stone,
and paint it tu prevent rusting. Then'
build your house the size to suit you. -Mine
is 20x36 fern;, the dr at the end,
and a bin on oach side to within four feet
cf the back end, which is for wheat and
oats, and is divided by partitions. Ths .
wheat and oat bins hold 400 bushed each .
corn bins 500, and there is room enough
left, in which I have a work bench and
fanning miil. The floor should be as
high as the bottom of a wagon bed which
is easy for unloading, and if the ground'
is rising in front of the building, it is ca
sy to back to the door.
To preserve Batter Milk, take a ves
sel that contains nearly twice as much as
you wish to save. While milk is plenty
two-thirds full of butter-milk, and then
fill up with water. Drain eff the water
and re-fill with fresh once a week, stir it
well each time after filling, and you will .
have a good article always ready."
