In the Improvement of dairy breeds
by selection, environment, feed, etc.,
for the greater utility to the dairy
farmer, two characteristics should be
placed foremost, writes \V. II. Jen
kins in Hoard's Dairyman. These are
performance and constitution or vi
tality, and after these beauty and
symmetry of form. The history of
this new American breed—the Colum
bian breeders of dairy cattle will do
well to study closely and learn its les
sons. About thirty years ago Anson
Gregory was keeping a herd of native
cattle on Ids farm in Otsego county.
N. Y. He noticed that one cow in his
herd gave more and richer mill; than
the ot hoi’s, and he raised her heifer
calves year after year. Mr. Gregory
wanted a sire from a different herd,
and he bought a line back, its dam be
ing his neighbor's best cow. Mr. Greg
ory's best cow was bred to the lino
hack hull for several years and a
strain of line hack cattle was estab
Mr. Gregory's two sons were now
grown to manhood, ami they took up
A new distinctive breed of Ameri
can dairy cattle lias been named
the Columbian. The bull shown
herewith, Miles Standish. is owned
by F. L. Gregory, Otsego county,
N. Y„ whose father originated the
the work of improving; (heir new
breed of cattle by selection. They
continued the work of improvement by
selection, feeding, etc., until they own
ed animals with a record of consid
erably over 500 pounds of butter in
one year.
Their type of cows being now estab
lished, three years ago the name Co
lmnhian was given these cattle tinder
a charter from the state, and the Co
lumbian Cattle breeders' association
was organized with five members.
The best and largest herd of Colutu
liians is now owned by C. O. Gregory
and bis father on the farm where the
breed originated. They have thirty
three cows. Some of the Columbian
. cattle. Mere exhibited at lo ;tl i'.iim i’l
New York this year, but very few of
this new butter breed have been of
fered for sale.
The Columbians so far have made
good records as a butter breed of cat
tle, and there seems to be good rea
sons for believing they will fake a
permanent place among the standard
dairy in < c Us.
Importart Points to Consider In Se
lecting the Ram,
In selecting a rani two fiascos o£
brooding should be avoided lie mu
nmi! scrub, Unit lias no good < Inirnc
terisiies to fix, and tlie “pure breed
scrub" without individuality, whose
purity of lira ling only gives him
greater power to work ruin in the
flock. Good individuality. Kicked l .\
several generations of good ancestry,
will insure prepotency with alrno t un
failing c.-rtainty where the inns are
suitable and management corn- t.
Great attention should bo paid to the
ram's general contour. 11 is strn tore
should lie firm and massive, with a
broad, spacious breast, no dispropor
tinnate length of legs and well formed
mid fully developed quarters, especial
ly the hindquarters. 11 is loin should
be stout and well knit, ids features
bold, mid a muscular neck is desirable
A bold and courageous eye anti car
llage are indicative of spirit and vigor
IIis head should be long, but rather
small and well molded.

The Youthful Disraeli, Elegant
and Eloquent.
His Airs and Graces, His Frills and
Laces and His Dazzling Oratory In
His Early Political Battles—A Pen
Picture of His Remarkable Face.
Benjamin Disraeli's career in piuetl
,'ttl polities began with a series of re
verses that might have discouraged a
| icss persistent lighter. Five times the
youthful novelist and versatile hud
ding statesman attempted to break
into parliament before he succeeded in
winning an election, going down to de
feat throe times at Wycombe and once
tt Taunton.
In William Flayvelle Mouypenny's
•'I.ife of Benjamin Disraeli" the au
thor declares that tales are still told in
Wycombe of Disraeli's famous first
*peech from the portico of tlie Red
“Tile youthful orntoi was now at the
height of tils dandyism, and his ’curls
and rutiles' played no small part in
the election. Standing on the top o?
the porch beside the figure of the lion,
with his pale face set off by masses of
jet black hair and his-person plenty
ously adorned witli lace and cambric,
he must have seemed to the spectators
better fitted for his role of fashionable
novelist than for that of strenuous pol
itician. Great, then, was their sur
prise when this ’popinjay,' as a hostile
newspaper called him. began to pour
forth a torrent of eloquence with tre
mendous energy of action and in a
voice that carried far along the High
street. He had an Instinct for the.dra
mafic effects which hold the attention
of the mob. ‘When the poll is declared
I shall bo there.’ lie exclaimed, accord
ing to a Wycombe tradition, pointing
to the head of the lion, ’and my oppo
nent will lie there.’ pointing to tlie
tail. By the admission even of the op
posito party the speech was a com
plete success, and his popularity with
the crowd was thenceforth assured "
As to the young orator's appearance
.it Taunton, Mr. Monypenuy gathers
these comments of an eyewitness from
in almost forgotten hook of Hint time;
Never in my life hurl I been so
struck by n face ns | was by that <>f
Disraeli, it was lividiy pale, ami from
beneath two finely arched eyebrows
blazed out a pair of Intensely black
eyes. 1 never have seen such orbs In
mortal sockets either before or since
His physiognomy was strictly Jewish
O' er a broad, high forehead were t ing
lets of coal black, glossy hair, which,
coni lied away from his right temple,
fell in' luxuriant clusters or bunches
over his left check and ear. which it
entirely concealed from view.
"There was a sort of half smile, half
sneer playing about his beautifully
formed mouth, the upper lip of which
was curved as we see it in the por
traits of Byron He was very showily
attired in a dark bottle green frock
coat, a waistcoat of the most extrava
gant pattern, the front of which was
almost covered with glittering chains,
and in fancy pattern pantaloons Hi'
wore a plain hind; stuck, but no collar
was visible Altogether lie was the
most intellectual looking exquisite I
had ever seen.
“He commenced In a lisping, lacka
daisical tone of voice. He minced his
phrases in apparently tile most affect
ed manner and while ho was speaking
placed his hands in all imaginable po
sitions. not because lie felt awkward
and did not know, like a booby in n
drawing room, where to put them, but
apparently for the purpose of exhibit
ing to the best advantage the glitter
ing rings which decked Ids white and
taper fingers. Now lie would place Ids
thumbs in the armholes of Ids waist
coat and spread out Ids lingers on its
Dashing surface; then one set of digits
would he released and he would lean
affectedly on Hie table, supporting him
self with Ids right hand; anon lie
would push aside the curls from Ids
“I’.ut as lie pro- oedecl till traces or ,
dandyism and affectation were lost
With a rapidity of utterance perfectly
astonishing he referred to past events
and indulged in anticipations of the
future. The Whigs were, of course,
the objects of his unsparing satire,
mill Ids eloquent denunciations of them
were applauded to the echo In all lie
said he proved himself to be the fin
ished orator livery period was round
oil with the utmost elegance, and In
his most daring flights, when one trem
bled lest he should fall from the giddy
height to which he had attained, he so
gracefully descended that every hearer
was wrapped in admiring surprise.
11 is voice, at (1 rs t so fin leal, gradually
became full, musical and sonorous and
with every varying sentiment was
beautifully modulated. His arms no
longer appeared to be eshiblte, for
show, but he exemplified the eloquence
of the hand. The dandy was trans
formed Into the man of mind, the Man
tallni looking personage Into a prac
ticed orator and finished elocutionist."
Har Declaration.
"Have von anything to declare?"
asked the customs inspector.
"Yes." replied the Indy who was re
turning from Kurope “I unhesitating
|y declare that It is an outrage the
way this government permits things
to he mussed up In one’s trunk ”-Chl

Loss of Cud Is a Symptom Mc-cly arid
Not a Disease.
I,ins (if (ini Is not n disease, but
merely (lie symptom of sickness.
When a cow suffers from Indigestion
1 or any other ailment which makes hi r
feel quite sk k she naturally will stop
chewing her cud. When the trouble
' subside- rumination will lie resumed,
i Many | *>• iple give artlflcinl ends, think
lug In establish rumination hy such
i means. This of course is highly ab
I surd, says the lturn! New Yorker.
On general principles give a cow a
full dose of physic when she will not
chew her cud and follow the purge by
full doses of stimulants in warm wa
ter, tliin gruel or flaxseed lea. As a
physic a pound of cpsom salts, half
nu ounce of ground ginger root and a
cupful of blackstrap molasses shaken
up In three pints of warm water will
prove effective. Four ounce doses of
whisky along with half a dram of
fluid extract of mix vomica will serve
well as a stimulant. Another good
stimulant for cows is a mixture of
equal parts of aromatic spirits of am
monia, pure alcohol and spirits of ni
trons ether (sweet niter). A dose of
this is two ounces every three or four
hours, well diluted wit li water, gruel
or flaxseed ten. Rectal inactions of
soapy warm water are also useful
when a cow Is affected In the way
here considered.
Selection and Cure of the Brood Sow
of Vital Importance.
The brood sow is the foundation of
ail profitable pork production, and her
selection, care and management are
the most important factors of the
whole industry, writes ITofesso/ ('. <i.
Wheeler in Kansas Parmer. It Is a
subject upon which volumes have been
written, and in spite of Ibis fact prob
ably more bog growers fail In this
point than in any other phase of the
In making the selection of sows it
must lie borne in mind that we cannot
expect uniformity In (he pigs unless
we have uniformity In the parents. A
type must therefore be kept In mlml
and the selections, as far as possible,
made to conform to this type. The
sows should he broad between the
eyes and of refined appearani e about
