CORN AND COB-MEAL.
How Ilctt to i;t!lirr Tlii luiHirt.int Trod
uit tif tiir Farm.
Some years ago 'there uui a raginff
war carried on in the newspapers
about the value of "cob-meal," as it was
called, that is, tho corn and cob ground
together. The two factions wero rep
resented by tho scientific men on one
side, who took the dry rob, pulverized
it and then analyzed it to discover that
it contained no nutriment to speak of,
and counting the eo-t of grinding thoy
pronounced it a uasto of time and
labor. The other side, who wrote in
favor of this feed, had only their ex
perience to offer in it. faor, but to
practical man this meant more than
scienco could tli-jrmv. and so tho war
went on, but the adoption of cob-meal
got a black eye until some one suggest
ed that perhap- the cob part of the
meal had something to do with giving?
the gastric juice of tho stomach a
chance to put in it good work by me
chanically holding tho particles of
corn meal apart, -o that this juico
could get at the meal.
At this the advocates of cob-meal
took new heart ami beiran the war
afresh, and then the managers of some
of the most progressive exjeriment
stations decided to give the matter a
practical test, by comparing tho feed
ing results of the cob-meal with euro
meal and mixture, of other ground
foods. This comparion told the tale,
and cob-meal came out ahead.
The man who stands by and sees a
cow eat an ear of corn, and notices
with what aire she consumes both
corn and cob. can not well doubt that
she has some good rea-on for all tho
chewing she doo on that old cob.
Now, that the utilitv of eob-mcal is
settled in its favor, is a good timo to
begin to study up tho subject of how
best to utilize this important product
of the farm. We have seen many a
farmer put in a rainy day with a sharp
hatchet cutting tho corn into short
pieces, to help the cow along, while
others uso a spade. This is better
than feeding the whole ear. but is yet
tcry primitive Others soak the corn
for several days in barrels of water to
toftcn it beforo cuttinsr. The better
plan, however, is to crrind the corn
and cob together. There are many
ftyles of mills made for this purpose,
and some of the late inventions are !
well nigh perfect. It is still a ques
tion with many feeders if the meal is
not better for not being ground too
fine, and this m.-iV- a. rma ci -;. A
