Modern Farm aad Garden Live

Headers of the Fanners' Review
are doubtless aware that experiments
are being made the world over with
tuberculin as an agent fcr tbe detec
tion of even dormant tuberculosis.
They, too, have learned that hundreds
of cattle have been destroyed in the
east as a result of the findings of this
new method of diagnosis. Tuberculin
is injected hypcdermically and causes
a rise in temperature when, say the
experimenters, tuberculosis is present
in the animal, no matter whether the
d it ease be virulent or passive. A
heated discussion has arisen over this
matter, for one side claims that
where . almost any lesion is
present in the cow's body the injec
tion of tuberculin or other agents for
that matter will cause a rise in temper
ature. Results have shown, as published
in the columns of the Fakmkbs' Ueview
that the work with tuberculin has
given wonderfully correct and even
astonishing results in seme cases of
tuberculosis that could not be diag
nosed by percussion and auscultation
by qualified veterinarians; but on the
contrary it has, if we have read aright,
condemned healthy beasts unjustly
while there is a suspicion in the minds
of some that where a rise in tempera
ture had resulted from the injection
of tuberculin simple post mor
tem lesions were pronounced
tuberculous for convenience sake
If it tbould prove that tuberculin is a
safe, never failing detective agent in
the diagnosis of luburculosis it must
be considered one of the most import
ant discoveries of recent years in the
annals of veterinary history.butonthe
contrary it is evident that the greatest
possible care must be taken to conclu
sively prove the eflicacy of tuberculin
before making it the judge author
ized to condemn to death dairy cows in
wholesale numbers under state laws.
Wc submit that the study of tubercul
osis, its etiology, its symptoms.its post
mortem lesions, every possible phase
and stage of development is of as great
importance as the study of tuberculin
and its effects. There is great danger
in adopting this most interest
ing "new discovery" as a means
of diagnosing tuberculosis, if it be
true that other diseases of the lungs
and pluera.of the spleen and liver, on
the exhibition of tuberculin, produce
a rise of temperature as great as
that when tuberculosis is present
The study of tuberculosis is necessary,
because should different states au
thorize the condemning of cattle
showing a reaction to tuberculin the
agent will be put in the hands of hun
dreds of practitioners who know little
or nothing regarding the post mortem
lesions of tuberculosis. We appre
hend that a few savants can not settle
this matter for the whole community;
that a few experiments showing suc
cessful diagnosis of tuberculosis
through the medium of tuber
culin should not be accepted
as so conclusive that tuberculin
experiments in the hands of non-professional
inspectors or even young
veterinarians may be safely considered
equally trustworthy and final as to the
health or disease, life or death of the
dairy cow. This evidently is a matter
for the government to take up and set
tle after careful work in each state
possessing an experiment station. It
is work that the farmer should not pay
for; work that the government should
undertake in an honest, thorough
manner to be reported upon candidly
aud in an unbiased manner. Then and
not till then should any man be made
to abide by the results of tuberculin
injected into the veins of his cows,
may hap -j.t the behest of some
enemy or business rival. There is
too, another point of importance, vi z.
that the government should supply
tubeiculin at cost, with instructions
for use to every qualified veterinarian
throughout the country who will en
gage to test it to the best of his ability
snd report results. The entire pro
fession should be able to experiment
if they so desire, and many a veterina
rian would be willing to experiment
and pay for subjects for pos;. mortem
examination if given a chance to pro
cure a supply of tested tuberculin.

Certified Testa of Dairy Cows
The Illinois agricultural experi
ment station announces in bul
letin No. 33 just published that
it will supervise tests of dairy
herds and, in exceptional cases,
of individual cows owned or exhibited
in Illinois, under the following condi
tions: The number of tests so super
vised, and the times at which they
shall be made, will be determined by
the practicability of sending an au
thorized representative for the pur
pose without serious interference with
other work of the station, but it is ex
pected that there can be prompt com
pliance with all requests. Preference
will be given to tests of pure bred
herds or cows kept for the rearing of
dairy stock, and to tests continuing
for seven days. The station through
its representative shall receive
full information as to breed
ing, age, tims of calving, date
when bred, and treament of the
cows prior to the test; also have fall
'opportunity to determine the quantity
and kinds of fool used, and the
methods of feeding ani treatment
during the tests, with privilege of
taking samples of food for inspection

Best Records lo EcK 1'rodaetlon.
We believe that the main-stay of the
poultry business is egg production, and
that there is more money in it for the
egg-producer than for the producer of
dressed -poultry. The egg is without
dispute a more perfect food than the
flesh, in the satne way that milk is a
more perfect food than beef. Eggs
are in every way more marketable, as
they are used in such innumerable
ways, and ia all kinds of cooking.
This demand will increase from year
to yearand there is little dan.fr of
the supply exceeding the demand in
this generation, at least The pro
duction of eggs needs to be stimulated,
and we know of no hatter way of do
ing it than recording the experiences
of others. Such records have a great
value. They set a standard of attain

Do ot hs afraid to invest a little
money in the poultry business. A
great many farmers do not succeed
with poultry, for the reason that they
want to conduct it in a man ner differ
ent from that in which they would
carry on any other business. The idea
should be that the business is one in
which money is to be invested. Many
people try to carry on poultry raising
without money. Let a man consider
whether it will pay him letter to put

Beef from Tubercular Cattle. -We
find the following in the Dairy
World, London, which that paper has
translated from some German con
temporary: Owing to the present
spreading of the tubercular disease it
is of much importance to the farmer
to know what the hygiene has to say
as to the use of beef from tubercular
animal, and what the means are
which will in some measure lessen the
pecuniary losses he has to sustain. Al
ready, when discovering the real na
ture of the disease and its contagious
ness, steps have been taken to lessen
the danger by destroying and burying
down the carcasses. At ail the veterin
ary and medical congresses the opin
ion has always been expressed that
the flesh from tubercular animals,
whatever may be its condition, was
unfit for human use, and Prof. Koch
has tried to prove bv numerous ex
periments that such was the case.
Lately, however, it has been found
that it is necessary to modify these
r'gid conclusions, and several tcient
ists have expressed the opinion that
not all 'flesh is detrimental to the
health, but that it depends entirely on
the nature of the changes themselves.
Thus the beef in which tubercles show
sign of calcination may he considered
rather harmless, but if having a cheese
like appearance highly contagious. In
this case it is indispensable that the
beef sold be carefully controlled. A
country where hygeian matters receive
most attention is undisputably Germ
any; this state has now instituted new
regulations re the sale of beef which
somewhat modify the previous exist
ing ones. According to these a detri
mental effect is as a rule only to be
anticipated if knots of tubercles are
contained in the flesh, or the animal
very much fallen off without any such
colonies being visible to the naked
eye. If the animal is in fair condition
and the tubercle3 have only affected
one or several organs in the same
. . rrx.ii
cavitVt the flesh may be considered fit
for human food. It is very rare that
the muscles are affected, and if tuber
cles, therefore, arc not present in the
very flesh it may not be considered tc
bs of an inferior quality, and the sale,
therefore, need not be placed under
special control. From a national
economical point of view it is to b
desired that such beef, which has a
higher value than that from animals
highly fallen off, may be allowed to
be sold without restrictions; in doubt
ful cases the op'nion of a veterinary
surgeon must be resorted to. This
ordinance has been favorably greeted
in Germany, though Prof. Koch still
adheres to his previous opinion that
the consumption of the infected beel
involves a certain danger. In several
places, therefore, where the ontrol is
very sharp, special stands have been
opened where beef less fit for human
food is sold, ahd where the buyer
knows his ri6k and is informed of the
precautions he has to take. In Berlin
a steam boiling apparatus has been
erected in connection with the public
slaughter house, where all suspected
beef is boiled so long as to Kill th.
A 31'ssourl Bulletin.
Bulletin 20, of the Missouri ex
periment station summarizes the re
sults of some of their experiments o.i
1. All crops demand soluble plant
fcod in proper amounts. 2. The plant
fcod most deficient in our soils is
potash, phosphoric acid and nitrogen.
3. All plants readily respond to appli
cations of potash and phosphoric acid,
and all but the leguminous plants to
that of nitrogen. 4. The leguminous
plants are able to gather and appro
priate nitrogen in abundance from the
atmospheric air. 5. Large crops mean
the buying of potash and soluble
phosphoric acid fertilizers, and, unless
a proper rotation is adopted, that of
nitrates or other nitrogenous manures.
C. Potash salts may be applied cither
in fall or in spring, soluble phosphoric
acids and nitrates in spring only. ?.
For deep rooting plants the two form
er should be deeply plowed under, and
the soil receive a Up dressing in ad
dition. S. Beneficial results follow
the application of lime and that of in
direct fertilizers, such as salt 0. A
proper rotation, different underdiffer

the vital measure for making farm-tig

Under the rams roof which shelters
the family, the cattle and other deni
zens of the barnyard are also housed,
a continuous roof of thatch usually
extending over both house and 3 aid,
says a w ritcr in Demorest's. The re
lations between the stockyard and
house are so intimate that at times,
when the weather is particularly se
vere or a suckling calf may be ailing,
it is brought into the house to share
the only apartment with the family
The rear part of the house is partially
occupied by a large stove, in which a
fire burns continuously for c'ght
months of the year. The stove is ar
ranged somewhat like a baker's oven.
The ire is lit in the morning, and,
after two or three hours, when the
wood is reduced to coals, the flue
plate, or damper, is shut; the brick
walls being very thick, the oven re
mains warm until the next day, when
the fire is lit again.
This stove series every purpose of
the household, even supplying com
fortable sleeping quarters on top for
the o'd people, who can not stand the
cold so well as the younger folks. The
rest of the family pack themselves
away at ted time in a pallery which
runs across the rear of the apartment,
above the stove, the children occupy
ing one end, the seniors the other. In
tome sections an innovation has been
made by inserting board partitions in
the balcony, thus giving more privacy
to the sleeping quarters of the differ
ent members of the family. On Satur
day all the members of the family
crawl into the oven in turn and have a
good wash, using a little home made
wooden tub and a bundle of birch
twigs. An abundant supply of the
latter is irathere.1 in the spring while
the leaves of the birch are green and
fragrant. The furniture of the house
is usually very meager, consisting of
home-made benches and tables and a
variety of articles which have found
their way there from the homes of
their wealthy neighbors.
Leveling Old Battlements. With
very few exceptions the old cities of
Belgium and Holland have leveled the
walls which have played such grand
parts in the national histories, and they
are converted into promenades after
the manner of Chester and York. The
walls of Antwerp and Malines have
been replaced by boulevards. The old
bastions of Amsterdam still remain,
but the citizens of Arnheim and
Utrecht and lloorn and Zwolle and
Haarlem and Lcyden disport them
selves on fine evenings upon the line
of fortifications famous in the most
stirring pages of what is perhaps the
most stirring of European histories.
Bros Those who possess a su
perfluity of rugs can make a charming
effect by hanging them against the
wall in the corner of a room, one at
the head and two or three on tbe sides.
Another rug is suspended lengthwise
to form a top. A narrow divan seat
with four or five large cushions is ar
ranged at one end, and the rest of the
space is filled with a small eastern oc
tagon table (on which arc laid cigars
and cigarettes, matches and a silver
taper) and a couple of oddly-shaped
chairs. A Turkish lamp, with a red
glass shade, gives just the amount of
light desirable, and a few eastern
arms arranged in the background of
rugs will add greatly to the effect

Ayrshire Batter Teats.
The Ayrshire Breeders' association
believes the success of the breed in the
future demands a cow that shall be
not only a large milker and an eco
nomical producer, but shall have the
ability to produce a large per centage
of butter fat and total solids. There
fore, to encourage the testing of Ayr
shire cows and to influence its selec
tion for breeding for butter qualities,
the association offers $30 in premiums,
divided as follows: $25 for the first,
815 for the second and 810 for the
third. These premiums shall be
awarded to herds of ten cows produc
ing the largest average record for two
consecutive days, as determined by the
scale of points herein mentioned. It
is not necessary for this test that cows
should be fresh in milk. No premium
will be .paid to a herd testing less than
thirteen per cent total solids. Compe
tent agents will make the tests at the
farms of the competitors. Arrange
ments have been made with experi
ment stations to perform the work in
their several 6tates where the compet
ing herds may be located, and send
the result in duplicate to C M.
Winslow and the competitors. The
agent will visit the farm of each com
petitor at a mutually convenient time,
as soon as possible after the entries
close. He will see the cows milked
clean at least twelve hours previous
to the beginning of the test, and will
weigh and test the milk of each cow
at each milking during the two days
of the test. The tests shall be made
by the '-Babcock tester' and tha
"Quevenno lactometer." All entries
must be made before July 1, 1891, to
the secretary. Any breeder of Ayr
shires may enter a herd of ten cows,
which shall at the time of entry, 6tand
on the books of the association as
owned by him. He shall in making
the entry, fill out a blank furnished
by the secretary, giving name and
number of each cow, her age and
weight, the number of calves she has
produced, the date of birth of last calf,
and date of last service by bull since
last calf was dropped. A statement as
accurate as possible is requested of
the method of feeding and care for at
least two weeks previous to test, and
during the test the kind and weight
of food consumed by the cows will be
ascertained and recorded.
A cel and Worn Ont Homes.
Aged and decrepit horses have con
siderable value in some localities in
the east, though, of course, those who
utilize them do not pay much for
them. About $2 is the usual price,
says the New York Sun. At Bclvidere,
NT. J., there is an establishment that
converts the played out animals, about
three a day, into, fertilizing material
that is sold to the farmers at from $10
to S33 per ton. After the horse is
killed the hide is first removed and
sold to the leather manufacturer at
more than the animal cost The car
cass is then boiled if it contains any
fat The grease is called "horse oil."
Tbe bones of the lower limbs are
boiled and the fat extracted from them
is called "neats foot oil." When the
flesh of the carcass has been thor
oughly boiled and the grease skimmed
off the surface of the vat, it is thrown
into the cellar and allowed to remain
there over three months, all the time
being subjected to the influence of
potash and gypsum, which are mixed
with it and rot it. At times there arc
the remains of 200 horses in the heap.
The bones pass through two crushers,
the first of which reduces them and
the second grinds them to powder.
Several chemical ingredients arc then
mixed with the bone dust This prep
aration is what is commonly known
as bone fertilizer, and is perhaps the
best artificial commodity used in agri
culture. Bones of any animal are
valuable in this way. Cattle are used,
but almost never a cow. Tough beef
Clover for Swine Growing.
The following is an extract from an
address read at a recent swine-breeders
meeting. That "a clover field is
worth a cornfield" was never more
true in the history of this country than
it is to-day, and the successful swine
raisers will have to combine the grass
and the corn crops to maintain the
fertility of the farm and meet the
growing demand of recent years for a
quality of pork containing only a
reasonable amount of fat, instead of
so much grease and oil from an all
corn diet. And the best method of
producing such meat is to grow and
feed them out in the field occupied
with clover, arranged for grazing.
Unless proper care is given the young
porkers, with a little extra feeding
consistent with that most needed,
they may not obtain as great weights
at the same age as those confined in
"dry lots" and fed on an exclusive
slop and grain diet, but they will
be the healthier by it, and
not have cost nearly so
much to grow them. However,
two pounds per head for each day dur
ing the months of May and June can
readily be obtained on clover alone
after the first few days of gradually
reducing the feed, as the clover attains
more growth and sustenance. But all
hogs intended for market should be
sold by the time the clover commences
to ripen, as the average gain will bo
less day by day without substituting
other feed, and much of the profits be
lost If too small for market or to be
kept longer in a profitable condition,
suitably prepared slop should be given
them to bridge over the time when
clover has passed the flush stage of its
growth, or until "roasting ears" will
do to feed, when they can be gradually
put upon the next most profitable
feeding, and as the corn hardens anil
the feeding progresses for a period of
about ten or twelve weeks on the sec
ond crop of clover or a bine grass
pasture, a healthier hog with more
and better meat for the least expense
will have been made than can be ob
tained by any other method in our
Minnesota Dairy Statistic.-. Wt
have at hand statistics of the dairy
production of Minnesota. In thatstntj
dairying is still practically confined
tn the southeastern oart. as a sort of
overflow from Wisconsin and Iowa. In ;
18S0 there were only 392,530 cows in
the state. In 1893 there were C00.03J,
an increase of over one-third in tcrcn
years. The number of creameries has
increased from 82 to 210 in the same
time, and the butter products from
about 30,000,000 to 70,000,000 pounds. In
one county, Freeborn.last year the value
of the butter made in the creameries
alone was 439,000.
Ciikap Kid Gloves. The cheapest
kid gloves in trade are made from the
skins of kids and lambs that are born
dead. The reason they wear out so
quickly and tear so easily is because
they have no elasticity. These dead
skins are called schmachen kid aud
th cloves retail at Si or less. To ai
judge of gloves the difference between
a sclnnachen and a kid is as plain
as the difference between a gingham
and a linen shirt Some of the heavy

fewer of Sympathy.
It is acknowledged that most women
possess tho quality of sympathy to a re
markable extent. Mrs. Browning pos
sessed this gift; it vibrated on the chord
of poetic expression in her. Jane Aus
tin and Charlotto Bronte led retired
lives, but they had tho power perpetual
ly to pass out of their circumscribed in
dividuality to that of others, and the
genius to retain and turn to account the
eeting impressions of their passing
contact with individuals. Tho darlings
and tho ornaments of socioty are the
women who can throw themselves best
into the interest of tho moment ; if to
this sensitive nature belongs a native
sincerity, confidence is attracted, friend
ships are made and retained. Mn:e.
Recaniiro is, perhaps, the best type of
this gift of social sympathy allied to a
certain reality of nature. Sho attracted
tho best and most gifted of her time.
When ago had marred her beauty, pov
erty succeeded wealth, and partial" blind
ness rendered her infirm, her salon in
the Abbaye aux Bois was still tho resort
of eminent men and women of tho pe
riod. She was not 11 wit, sho was always
somewhat shy; but sho had the wish to
win lovo rather than admiration, and
possessed the tact of drawing out tho
best Rifts in others. She had the genius
of friendship, her steadfastness could
not be shaken. Sympathy gives an an
gelic grace to virtue.

A College Wag.
In a certain college, under Presbyte
rian auspices, not a hnndred miles from
New York, it is a rule that tho students
shall attend church at least once each
Sunday, either in the college chapel or
some other church iu town which they
shall designate, and for non-attendance
satisfactory reasons must be given. Of
course, on Monday mornings, when
these reasons are called for, much in
genuity and some fun are brought out.
In one of these interviews, Prof. L
asked a student, "Mr. C , where did
voa attend church yesterday?"
' Mr. C replied, a The First Church,
Tho professor, looking a little sur
prised, said, "Are yon not aware, Mr.
C , that thoro was no service at the
First Church yesterday ?"
This was a poser, but was coolly met
by, "I mean, professor, the first church
J came to."
A general laugh followed, and some
how tho young gentleman got rescued.

In 1711 there was quite an nnti-tea
agitation in Scotland, where it was pro
nounced by the famous Duncan Forbes
to be "in many respects an improper
diet, expensive, wasteful of time, and
calculated to render tho population
weakly and effeminate." Durinjr that
time there was a vigorous movement all
ver Scotland for abolishing tho use of
t'-a. Resolutions were passed by Town
Councils and the inhabitants of villages
condemning it, and advocating beer.
Sir "William Fullertoifs tenants in Ayr
shire entered into the following bond:
"We, being fanners by profession,
think it needless to restrain ourselves
formally from indulging in that foreign
and consumptive luxury calli-d tea; for,
-vvlipn -v! consider the slender constitu
tions of many of higher rank among
whom it is used, we conclude that it
would be but an improper diet to quali
fy us for the more robust and manly
part of our business; and therefore we
shall only give our testimony against it,
and leave the enjoyment of it altogether
to those who can afford to be weak, in
dolent, and useless."
