PRIZE WINNER FOR
"BEST DAIRY COW"
Good Qualities That Go Far Toward Malting the Most
Profitable Mlllt Producer Importance ol"

I think tlint l hi- niiiiiHKoiM of tin- r

entering In thin elmm inu not of the
strictest kind the lneiuluius aie very
upt to go to pine bred cattle mas
querading as grades, writes .I. Giant
Monui In lliunl New Yorker. It In n
gieat deal easier to thou a pure-hied
ns n grade than it Is to show a grade
as n puio-bred, and if there Is any
thing in breeding the grades would
stand n poor chance by the t-ide of
puro-hredu especially titled by a pro
fessional showman. At llrnt one
would say that it will bo vei easy
to pick out the best cows by simply
milking them and weighing und test
lug tho milk, but in my opinion this
would not bo a fair way at all, for the
best dairy cows aio of a eiv bich
nervous temperament and for this ,
Prize Winner for
reason the best cow In tho lot might
make tho poorest showing under such
conditions as sho would meet w Ith on
tho stato fair grounds. A few years
ago I sold a leglBteied Jersey cow to
11 mcicant In a neighboring village,
under those conditions: I delivered
tho cow and told hia man how to
feed Iier and at the end of a week
I was to como back and either take
the row away or get my pay for her.
ns the buyer should decide ns to lier
vnlue. Well, at tho end of tho week
I went back and tho man paid mo for
tho cow. But after ho paid mo for
her ho tokl me that If I had como
back In tho middle of the week he
should have told mo to take the cow
away. The first day sho gave n gootl
flow of rich mlllt, but tho next sin.'
began to go off, both in quantity and
quality, and sho gave only a very
small moss of very poor milk. Then
sho began to got back to a normal
i-ondltlon, so that by tho end of the
week sho had won her way back into
tho good graces of tho family. So

Sumo horses have a habit of eating
thoir feed too fast If It Is placed
loosely in a box. This can bo easily
Tomedled by making a self-feedor on

a feeder can bo mado similar to a
poultry feed hopper. Tho box can be

to hold ouo feed. Tho horse can get

ho cannot eat moro rapidly than ho

by which we may determine the pos
session of the high nervous tempera
ment necessary In the best daily cow
If I were going out after good dairy
cows I should have In mind one with
a long, deep bturel with well-sprung
ribs. The shouldcri, would lie thin,
but she would be deep and wide
through the chest. Her hips should
bo long and very wide, but her thighs
should be thin und dovold of much
flesh. She should have a good, shape
ly neck and a nice, intelligent bend,
devoid of much tlesh. If sho were
frcbh I should expect a good, big ud
der with largo teats placed far apait,
and her milk veins should be large
and clastic and bhould extend well
up toward her fi out legs and termi
nate In huge "milk wells." With this
conformation I should want to find
tho cow with a bright, healthy-looking
eye and a general alert appearance,
then if hor coat looked thrifty and her
skin had u soft, nice feeling, I should
think I bad found a good "milking
machine," In excellent working ordei
principal grain depended upon to lln
I.di cattlo for market.
For roughage nothing excels nllalfn,
and Rome feeders believe that alfalla
alone will fatten cattle as fast iif
corn and timothy hay Clover It adinir

marketed when they aro in prlmo con

and often reduces the profits of feed

tho geneial market.

Suggestion and Practical Thought.
1 I .me Coirpletes All Virtue, and
Make. Perfect All the (loud Things of
Mfo.VB. I It. First. Kloiiuence, unln
hplred by real love, not seeking tho
highest good of the hearer, Is but
"sounding brnss, or a tinkling cym
bal;" mere noise without harmony,
without meaning, without the soul of
music. This Is true even if we had
the gift of tong"us bestowed by the
Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
Second. Knowledge Is poweiless to
build up character and the Christian
life, unless it is guided and filled with
Third Faith. 2 "And though I
have all faith, so that I could remme
mountains." as promised In Matt
17:20; 21:21. the mightiest und most
enduring faith. One iiay hae the
most strenuous fultli in the facts and
doctrines of Christianity, without tlio
faith that moes and touches the
heart, fnith that knows but doea not
obey. "And have not chailty." He
does not asset t that one can have
these things without love, but says If
ho could: "I am nothing" A moral
cipher, without nny moral worth or
signlficence; weighed In the balance
and to 11 ml wanting.
Fourth. Almsgiving. ".. "And
though I bestow all my goods to feed
the poor." As the Pharisees gavo
alms and Ananias sold his property
from unwoithy motives, without love;
whilo Barnabas and ninny nthors sold
theirs fiom love, and Jesus bade the
rich young man do the same, us an
expression of lovo and faith.
Fifth. Martyrdom. "And though 1
givo my body to he burned.'" From
unwoithy motives, from pride, for 11
desire for honor or glory. There are
peisecutcd upon whom Jesus pro
nounces Ills highest blessing (Matt.
5:10-12), but thoy aro persecuted "for
righteousness' sake." Yet even of
these thlnt'H, when done without love,
It must bo snld, "it proflteth me noth
ing" There Is no virtue in it to be
rewarded. It does not Improve the
character nor aid the cause.
II. Tho Spectrum of Love. The
Qunllties Which Are Combined In Per
fect I.ove. Vs. 4-7. The nbsolutc im
portance of love, aB nn essential part
of nil viitues and actions, has been
shown in tho first threo verses.
Our next duty Is to learn what lovo
Is. LIko life, lovo cannot be defined,
but It enn bo described and recognized
by what it docs, by Its fruits, by tlio
expression of its qualities. It Is like
life. Tho greatest scientists cannot
tell what It Is In ItR essence, but only
describe it by qualities and results.
First Ingredient. Patience. 4. "Char
ity (love) suffereth long." Is pntlent
with the faults and provocations of
others, never weary of "well doing."
Second Ingredient Kindness. "And
Is kind." Kindness Is lovo working,
lovo In nctlon, doing "ns many kind
things" to ns ninny people ns possible.
Third Ingredient. Ooneioslty.
"Clunity envioth not." Selfishness,
the opposite of love, Is the soil in
which envy grows.
Fourth Ingredient. Humility. "Clinr
lty vauntoth not itself," does not
sound tho praises of Its own deeds,
nor proclaim Its virtues with a
trumpet. "Is not puffed up." With
self-conceit, as a soap bubble, large in
size, but mostly wind.
Fifth Ingredient. Courtesy. 5
"Doth not behavo Itself unseemly."
Almost all unseemly conduct flowE
from Jirldo nnd selfishness.
Sixth Ingredient Unselfishness
"Seeketh not her own." Is not look
ing out for self first of all. It seeks
to give moro than to receive.
Seventh Ingredient Good Temper
"Ib not easily provoked." It does not
lose Its temper. Tho peculiarity of ill
temper Ib that It Is tho vlco of tho
virtuous. It Is often tho one blot on
nn othcrwlso noblo clinrncter. No
form of vlco is moro bnso; not world
llness. not greed of gold, not drunken
ness Itself, does moro to un-Chrlstlan
Izo society than evil temper.
Eighth Ingredient. OuIIelcssncsb.
"Thlnketh no evil." Lovo puts the
best construction upon tho nets of
others, Instead of tho worst, as
Ninth Ingredient. fiincerity. 0.
"Kejoicoth not In Iniquity." is not
glnd whon othors sin, hates to report
tho weaknesses and fnults of othors,
refuses to ccem good by depreciating
others. "Rojoicoth In tho truth." Hot
ter ns R. V "rojoicoth with tho truth,"
Is In sympathy with all that Is true,
rojoicoth whenever It can find a vir
tue or good deed In others, Joys in tho
triumph of virtue.
It "benreth nil things." Tho Greek
meaua to protect, ns a shield protects
Or tho sides of a ship protect It
ngainst tho InruBh of tho "multitudin
ous sens," or wnll and battlements
bear nil attacks of nn Invading army.
It "bellovoth all things;" haB perfect
conlldonco in God as tho God of love.
Its very naturo Is to hope. "Kn
rudroth nil things." Goes on bear
ing, believing, nnd hoping to tho end
Tho Immortal Three. V. 13. "And
now," Jn conclusion, "ahldoth faith,
hopo, charity." Thcso threo grac s,
faith, hope, love remain Import di
able nnd immortal. "Hut tho greatest
of theso Ib charity." Lovo. 1. It l
jrooUt in Its nnturo.
