Milk Fever In Cows-
I will give ray opinion on the ori
gin and treatment or the disease, as
I have tried a great many experi
ments cn it, and think that I am at
least master of it. I have had sev
al case3 of it for tho last few years.
and have lost none. It' originates in
the calf bed. The cow being fleshy
and full of blood and milk, and calv
ing in hot weather, an inflammation
arises in the part mentioned, which
arrests all action of the blood, milk
and bowels, and unless this inflamma
tion is stopped, and a circulation got
up, she will soon mortify.
My mode of treatment is as follows
and whoever tries it will affect a cure
in nine cases out of ten. As. soon as
I see the cow has the disease, I take
sacking, or other heavy cloth, lay it
across the small of the back, and keep
it constantly wet with cold water from
the spring, poured on by pails full.
This will allay the inflamation until
physic can oe got to operate. Then
take a handful of tobacco wet in vin
egar, and bind it in the hollow of the
head back of the horns, and keep it
wet with vinegar, as the disease ap
pears to affect the head very much.
After this is done, commencing giv
ing physic give one pound of Ep
som or Glauber salts. This I think
the best if handy, for it is cooling to
the system ; if not handy, take about
two quarts of molasses and lard, each
equal parts. After the physic has
been down two hours and no opera
tion, take a lump of chalk the size
of a hen's egg, pulverize it fine, put
it in a quart bottle, and as soon as the
cow is got in a position to give it,
pour in one pint of good vinegar, and
place the bottle to her throat and let
it go down. If there is no operation
in the space of three or four hour?,
reneat the last use. iualk ana vm-
j egfir I know to be a harmless phys-

It is now time to decide on what colo
nies to Winter. Most of the loss during
Winter and Spring, is the result cf un
dertaking to keep improper colonies, or of
brd management. The chances of suc
cess with a colony that is now in just the
right condition, with honey enough, and
the right number of bees, are three times
better, than with one that needs to be
supplied with some food. We cannot
supply a deficiency, and then have the
same natural condition as when the bees
provide for therrilves. Wrhen increase
of stocks is not particularly desired, the
good ones only should bo saved- But
many, and especially beginners VIthout
experience, will want to keep all they
have, and it is important that they attend
to any deficiencies that can be tupplied
this month. Success will very much de
pend on doing thing? at the right time.
Examine them the first cool morning.
A strong colony extends through all the
combs. One of only moderate strength,
i v ill often make a show of a large swarm,
if the combs are badly diseased, or very
full of honey. If a stock lacks bees only
to make it good, they may be added from
some condemned colony, paralyzing both
with pufi ball smoke when uniting them
See directions for the process in Agri
culturist for October, 1SG0.
When there are tees enough, but
honey is lacking, ft may be provided, if
there are combs enough in the hives to
held it; if no', the bees should be taken
out, and the hive and contents set away
for another year, or the honey given to
some other liijht stock. Honev in the
combs when fed should have the sealing
of the combs cut ofT, and placed either
under the bees the bottom of the hive
fitting down close, to keep out the rob
bers or placf d on the top, covering with
a close box. When no honey ean be had
but such as is takni from dit as'd stocks,
it must be strained and scalded, or disease
will be communicated. Add a little
water to prevent burning, and take off the
scum as it rises. Put it in a shallow
diah, with some floating material to keep
the bees from drowning. Feed thern as
fast as possible to the required weight
20 or 25 lbs otherwise they consume a
great deal in rearing brood which the
feeding will always induce. West India
honey when used, should be used in the
ame way. Honey prepared for Winter
stores, should be as near the consistency
of that t-lored by the bes as possible.
If too much water is left in it, it is apt to
induce dysentary. but it is quite sure to
burn in scalding, if some water is not left
in it. When no other feed but saear is
used, 1 think it is better to give it in the
winter than now. Candy alone has
proved a failure with me.
Condemned colonies should now be dis
posed of. When the bees are to be
killed with the fumes of the sulphur pit,
it is much the best way to drive out the
bees fir.-t. It takes less lime, than to get
them out when removing the honey after
being smothered between the combs.
The honey also, will be free from any of
the effects of burning sulphur. Break up
such combs as are to be strained, imme
diately on the removal of the bees ; the
honey will run out much more freely than
when cold. If the combs are not too old,
a few pieces nearly free from bee
bread, may be found near the top and
sides of the hive, which will do for the
table without straining. The inferior
honey is near the middle and bottom, and
should be strained. Among the different
methods of doing it, one is simply to mash
it and pour through a s'eve or colander to
skim otf the i-articles of comb. A box
answers a good purpose for large quan
tities. It should be about four feet long,
sixteen inches wide, by five deep, and
wire cloth bottom. This should be on a
frame four feet high. Under the box is
a board of the same width and length,
with narrow strios nailed on the edges to
keep the honey from running over the
side. One enl is raised, and the honey
drains from the other into some large
vessel, half barrel or ferkin. The par
ticles of combs will all rise to the top in
a day or two, it can then be drawn from
. m f r
a tap near tae bottom pertectlv clear. 10
prevent its becoming very hard in cold
wt-atner. put two gi:is ot water to ten
pounds, mixing thoroughly. If preferred
in the t-olid form, fill shallow dishes to the
depth of an inch, and expose it to the
coldest weather for a few weeks. Me
thegiin and vinegar may be made very
1 cheaply from the refuse of strained honej.
I After all has draintd out th ;t will, cover
with boiling "vater, or scald over the fire,
stirring thoroughly. Let it stand a day
or two, when u may be drained frcm the
combs tbe same as honey, .then toil and
skim till Clear. The strength may be
tested with an egg. when the upper side
ries an eighth of an inch above the sur-
ties, the process is facilitated by having a
large kettle and an apparaU'3 for squeez
ing it, using two or three sacks ; one is
filled and put into the water and the wax
melts while another is being squeezed
out. Particles of wax in the refuse when
exposed to the air, and slightly pre?sed
in the hand, indicate whether it is worked
out sufficiently or not.
The surplus honey for market is usually
forrarh,ed this month and next. If in
small glass boxes, it should be packed in
cases holding what may be easily han
dled fifty or a hundred pounds. It
should be secured by close packing from
sliding about in the cjse. And when
shipped, secure careful handling, other
wise the ccmbs will be broken and. the
value materially lessened. It requires
mor? care than a package of eggs.
Plant Small Trees.
Youag America is in such hcjste to TO
alize results, Tie can't wait for trce to
transport huge sons of the forest into his
new place by some sort of patent machin
ery, so as to make a grand show immedi
ately. He has little idea of what consti
tutes a perfect vegetable structure, small
or large ; he knows little of the pleasure
which comes from watching the steady
developement and growth of small trees,
frcm year to year. No, no, he wants to
leap up to grand achievements at once ;
he wants a Lt of big trees, and that's all,
and that's enough.
We beg a little consideration for small
tree. Go to tho open field, or to the
nur.-ery, and select a goud specimen of
almost any good tree say the bech, or
maple, or tulip, or hemlock. Take one
or more of each, three or four feet high,
that have branches well formed on each
side. Save all the roots and fibers in
digging them up, and in carrying them
home don't bang them to pieces, root and
branch, but treat them witu the utmost
tenderness. Prepare large holes, ;q rich
soil, and set them out so that they vT'U
grow vigorously. Clip the ends of the
branches just a little, but do this so as to
preserve the original symmetry.
Isow, watch these trees, from year to

He who sets out large trees is com
pelled to top off at least the Ijwer branches
to enable the top ones to live. The roots
are so mitulated in digging them up, tlat
nearly all the branches have to be trim

balance of things. But such a tree, so
marred in root and branch, is only half a
tree. It is a fragment, to which the lost
parts can never be restored. Begin,
then, with small trees. How they enjoy
life ! They will ere long outstrip the
large stumps you set out at the same time.
