For private families the Alderney has hitherto Heen a great favorite both account i it milking qualities and its quiet and i gentle disposition. A new Ray a however has been recently introduced from France that is Likely we think to obtain some patronage As a family cow this is the b re tonne Breed which a considerable Numor have Lawn brought Over and sold for that Purina a. These Little animal so for they Are rather smaller than the Kerry cow Gire a Good Deal milk say from five to a even quarts a a layers very Little to keep and Are As quiet and As gentle As a Latch and will Folio the person who tends them about like a Spaniel.

It will be found that in proportion As they Are allowed exercise when Well fed they continue to give much milk Quot Tho muck Minos the farm. Pro tooting animals from rain atoms. 1 believe that Farmers generally arc not aware How much Loas they Tustain in the Kwh their Domestic animals and How much they suffer during cold atonal rain in the summer at any other season Tho year. Wans showers never injure animals indeed the appear to Hare a Good relish Lor such a a sprinkling a they generally get Prev Kovl it in not As cold As ice. Most animals will endure pretty severe cold As Long As they can keep dry hut As Arm As their bodies have been wet and Are kept so evaporation commences. And As evaporation is a Cooling process the heat their bodies is carried away very rapidly and the sudden transition from Lent to old chill them in a very Short time and injures them More than a severe storm in Winter. Animals will endure h very Udd it it a change from cold to heat with impunity hut sudden Cha Ages from heat to cold Are often attended with very a Rico Conser Piettie. We Are Apt to think because it is summer not erecting weather that a storm rain will not Hurt our hut. Could they communicate to us their feedings during a storm cold rain there would not be v much negligence about protecting them especially during the cold and Stormy a lays and nights autumn. 1 Well remember that shout Twenty years ago. There was a Severo rain storm in the month Juno and although our sheep had been a beaded Tore than two weeks we thought they ought to he brought Home to the Ham. Hut in Tny them were so cold and feeble in conscience the rain that it to need weary to go aft it them with a a got. A unit the first july Lutil then was another cold storm rain which a wept away Hund Slauf sheep in Tho town where i Naide. One Farmer lost about sixty hit choicest sheep although they had Heen sheared several Days before the storm came . 1 have heard More thaa three Hundred lost during the it is infinitely better for an Wils to keep them in a stable a Hod we re they cannot have a Mouthful food for twelve aug cow Ive hours than to allow them to be exposed for Only two hours to a storm cold rain. Alten i was accustomed to keep sheep i was always careful to let them have the Benefit a shed if they needed it not Only in the Winter but during summer and it was very unusual that our Hgt Row and neat cattle Wen left Lor one hour in the Field during a cold storm. Cold storms not Only make cattle look bad but Tuey do really injury them by rendering them stiff and Dull and they often contract a severe cold which Many litre will super induce Catarrh Ami Young calves and Colts Olton suffer extremely i rom exposure to cold storms Eren in summer. And to shelter them will be Timo and Money Well appropriated. A a a merciful Man a it Gard the the life Hie treat Ami cultivator cattle for the Dairy. The following remarks by the editor the Mark Laos express Are As Apulia Abs to sums Parta this country As to England a pro Fostor gauges a work Bural Economy is a More general a ascription and embraces Tho chores cattle scientific principles in Tho urination a Dairy. He agrees in this respect with most the Best informed and practical men. That the Yorkshire abort horns Are in every respect the beet adapted to the Dairy and Alth Tygh the Suffolk polled the a rehire and the Alderney Breeds have a till Imp advocates the shorthorn nevertheless. Are now the dominant face in every Dairy District in the King no Farmer need seek for a Richer Placer who has a muck mine upon his he has a triple advantage in the work enriching his land Over those who have not been favored. For muck is not Only a Pittil incr itself hut it Pau Wace Tho Power enhancing Tho value other Munro a the process Fern tentation by which they suffer sumo loss giving in admixture with muck a greater value to Throe four times the material which could Beruo be secured. As an illustrative proof to might quote the statement the late Elias la Hiu Ney Massachusetts who by the mixture twice the amount dry muck with the manure from his stables secured a fertilizer which be assured the editor the x. E. Farmer was higher value than the drop pings alone Load for Load. Iii operations says the Farmer a were extensive and conducted in a systematic manner und Tho conclusions to which he arrived in rotation to them have in abundantly sustained by other experimentalists Anil by careful analysis scientific men. A according to Shrof. S. W. Johnson a the excretion any animal mix with muck is renders Mure valuable from the fact that the muck Almora and saves the ammonia Quot a volatile Gas which would otherwise in dissipated to a considerable extent by terme nution. The Rutin the muck compost is Greuter also from l Long better pro it ort Ionut to tie wants plants. Still manure alone if properly taken care is too Rich for according to Tho same authority a plants Over stimulated with ammonia produced much foliage and few our present purpose however is to offer a few hints a working the Init ii Quot so curing a Supply muck for future the but Dot a it Are usually to full water for dining in fall Winter and can Only be drawn upon during Tho dry weather Midsummer. Tho Siuw season the time in tween the Early and later Harvest usually presents some Leisure la a the work. Huidor when c Nippon tidy dry there is Lea we ight to move and the material is in a bettor state fur use. It will lie More lightly in heaps and thus gain greater exposure to the air while when muck is dug out and piled dry und the air and Rains gradually dissipate the acid most specimens contain and which must be dispelled neutralised before it is available for use As an absorb an the liquids the stables a use much ii a Orzanco in increasing the Stock manure. Muck readily becoming friable under the action the elem Gnu is a valuable Fer Tillier for Loamy and Aandy soils alone. If it contains Mach acid this should be neutralised by fermentation most Reu div brought about by mixing with animal dropping As spoken above. Speaking the Quantity muck which May be used in a season the Homestead remarks that it bears sumo proportion to the number animals kept up the a Arm and puts it at from fifteen to bad for each cow horse Ami ten loads to Sach yearling Swine. At least Hall a Load to every sheep we think May be spread Over their Yards which should be kit littered with Straw while occupied in Winter. Early in Spring 1� the whole he drawn out mixing the Straw and Mucky a it it Iowa together w tile handling and placed in a beat and it will prove very valuable for the fall wheat for indeed any crop the farm. A few loads should be placed where the Wash and a Upa the House can be poured Over them it will soon become valuable manure and should be drawn away and replaced with a new Supply. When the muck a Mac m Distant from the Ham and the material is wanted for application to lands near by then in no need carting the muck to the Hare and Back at a Larga expense. Get out the muck now. And Heap it the Fields where needed. When the Stock come to the stables in the the manure at once to these Fields and As Long As allowed by the Frost mix the to a together one Load manure to two muck and it will Only require one turning and . Few weeks warm weather to fit it fir Core other crop. Or it May be composted in the Spring with Liisu a hcs guano let be dust other no Kaloc nitrogenous material decomposing in a Short t me and furnishing a manure equal value to that from the barnyard itself.

But i Camo and went. The lady went Way and i the other. I saw her no More but i thought her frequently. The other incidents were serious. One was the death Niy father who had been a widower for twelve years the other was the failure Bull Winkle Badger and Bull Winkle. The events were disastrous especially the bullwinkle business.

I Down the Street with a thread Bare coat my Back and not a cent in my Psket. I was to Triblo hungry too for i had had no breakfast and had gone to bed the night before without supper. The venerable proprietor Iny lodging rooms had just informed me that my apartment was needed for the Uso a lodger who would do Eliut i had neglected to do Puy for its Oso it was Plain that something Tutu Chiody must to done but Bow to do either was past my ingenuity. Suddenly it flashed Iny Inland that 1 was a fool. It was a fortunate discovery. A a yes Quot i said to myself. A a 1 am a fool rather i was a for a fool i will be no As i said this i Caine very near trembling Over a pork barrel and Mode a remark concerning olt auctions in the Street which was More forcible than Chaste. I heard a Low laugh and looked up. There stood a Stout Well Dru Raed Man in Tho door the store House before Rae. I glanced at Tho sign Over Tho door which bore the word a a my mind was made up. I stepped in und walked toward the counting a Tom the Stout Man followed and accosted to. A a what can we do for you Quot to asked. A i done to know Quot said i.

After that i bought Luv Blue shirt and overalls put them and went Back to Tho store Bouse with my coat my Arm looking at the proprietor s name Tho door Post us i entered. A a Here i Nin . Banks Quot i said and . Banks sent me to Tho head Elerk who told me what to do at Tho moment und i did it. I found a cheap boarding House at a convenient distance from the store und Wor cd my Way along faithfully and manfully. I grew to Liko Tho work. I ate heartily and slept soundly. Only once i Felt a tremor. I was one Day rolling Sonto barrels from n car into the store House when i saw n former fashionable acquaintance picking his Way along the sidewalk. What had brought him to that Quarter i did not know hut i re Denul when 1 saw Lii i. Lie did not Sec me however and would not probably Hare recognized to if to had. My employer paid no further attention to me after the first Day. One Day however about three months after i first took Tho place the chief clerk called to me a a Lovatt who said a a Como Here. I notice that you calculate very Well and write a Good hand. Or. Greene that was Tho name our new second clerk is sick Abed to Day. Could t you help me with this lot invoices Quot a a ill try if you show to what you lie explained and i went at the task. 1 have already Suid that i was Apt at Figuni and i go through quite rapidly and leaving Tho Roult Tho desk went Back to Iny up and urrels. Bre softly . Banks came in and went into the counting room. To had Boen there Only about a Quarter an hour when he culled me to him. A sit Down Quot he said when i Quot up Coombe tells me that Yon gave him material Aid to Day. As Greene is too sick to Como hero at present suppose you Tako his place in the mounting Reom till he recovers. A a a \ Ery Good Quot i replied and removing my overall., i perched myself at the desk. Hie result was that poor Greene never recovered and i retained his situation. It was Only twelve dollars a week but it was a step. Three we eks afterwards another pair incidents occurred. I was at the desk arrange log papers and copying into the lorries Book when . Banks Cate in. A a Avau a said he a i heard mention you last night. An acquaintance our a a . Van Geltz spoke a Young Lovatt a lawyer who Baa loft the Profe Stoa and gone no one knows whither turned out a Mere Vagabond. From the description personal appear nos 1 had an idea he meant you but As it might Hare annoyed you i did not mention that you were in my a thank you Quot 1 answered. A Van gelt 0, Yea i remember a John Van gelt to whom in my bettor Days i loaned five Hundred dollars. I took his note for it but As he has no Money sup it uce 1 might As Well have that much waste paper. Common gratitude might have taught him common decency when he spoke a Shavo you the note Quot a look it up then. He has Money now his Uncle died recently and loft him comfortable. Give me the note and i la see that he pays it. And by the by i have Luft a package Pipien at Home Tho Library tilde. I wish you d take the cars and go up to my House with this note. Mrs. Banks will hand you the 1 followed orders and was soon at Bank s House a Liun sumo mansion one Tho fashionable streets. 1 sent up Tho note to mrs. Banks and was shown into the Par Lor. I had not Lieen seated More than two three minutes before 1 heard a Light step and rising turned toward the door. There a Tood my Young lady the fringed Mantle the recognition was Mutual. She blushed and Lobkov and i Felt my face glow. She was the first to recover and handing me the package Seid a Pmj Mother directed to to give you Thieo sir Quot i bowed i could not speak and backed Iny sellout the door running against a hat stand in the Hall and growing redder at Tho awkward Blunder. The Young lady reddened with sympathy. Nut exactly know ing what i did i bowed profoundly to Tho servant who was showing to to the door and she looked amazed and amused this put the Cap Stone to the fabric my utter discomfiture and i Mado my Way Down Tho Street in no pleasant Framo mind. A ipod my boy Quot i said to myself a you Are getting to to a fool again. You Are a clerk with a salary Tolvo dollars a week and you re falling in Lugo with the sweetest Littlon pshaw what Shouha to you you to Hecuba ? stick to your invoices you Noodle Quot but i could not help recalling the looks Tho Young lady. What a neat Nice Little body she was kind hearted As her countenance showed her she must Havo Lieen tickled at Luy awkwardness though. What a Booby i must have appeared to her to to i Felt my face Redden Satin and clenched my Fiat in my vocation As though i would mint in assault and Hattery my own person. Two Day after . Banks handed Ino a Check Lor Firo Hundred and eighty five dollars and Tho amount Van Gultz a Noto with interest. 1 knew the value Money now and a my salary was quite enough for my immediate necessities i deposited the sum in the Kink waiting for a Chanco to invest it properly and wont with my usual Irani Ness. But i found myself frequently making calculations hits Loose paper divers it Ccu Latoi in which i might double my Little Fortune and Kiep doubling it until. In geometrical progression it became a colossal Fortuno Whereon in fancy i built in a Tino Mandan in town und bought to a Noble Cou Witry oat und got married to Dura Banks. Dora we Iamanico mine it was to he sure unfortunately however nothing turned up by which i might double my Money until one Day i added five fold to it hut not through a speculation. The complicated affair Bull Winkle Badger and bullwinkle were at length wound up a Small Dildo and was paid to their creditors and after taking out letters administration to my father s estate i found myself p we War a sum which Mado my five Hundred and eighty Odd dollars nearly three thousand. Then i builder bigger air castles than Ever with Dora for mistress each. And yet i rarely Siw Here occasionally at Tho House once in Tho Street and once for a whole afternoon her fat cry a Hirth Day when . Lipi Omile and myself were invited to Dine with our principal. On Tomt occasion i had d Meed with Dora and talked with her though the conversation must have Heen very silly my part for 1 was in that Sute ecstatic Eun fusion that my Tongue refused to perform its Ordinary office. I was destined to a separation from Dora however. Nearly a year after i was taken into . Bank s employ i was seated alone in the counting room . Lipec mho having gone out to it lunch when our principal came in. A emr. Lovatt Quot he said a what Hare you Dono with Tho Money you obtained from your fathers estate Quot a nothing. It is in the savings fund drawing five per cent. I thought it the safest the Tho reason i asked is because you will need it. 1 am going to displace i looked at him in some alarm and stammered out a reply i forget what. A i Hare advices from Rio that it will be a More than Safo speculation to Send some Richmond flour there. It will about arrive at the right time. I want the matter managed adroitly and you Are the Man for a i think will Yon go out As super cargo Quot i was relieved at once and answered promptly in the affirmative. I am going to give you a Chance to menu something for Yogi Wolf. Do a a a Money and invest u a Tbs a a think you sir i should be my Happy Todo so but. Unfortunately i Bare to Giurea month s notice. A a never mind. Transfer the account to is and i will Drew it while you Are away und Advance the amount to you now. Tbs vessel will sail Day after Dine with me to Morrow afternoon. You Oan leave when Lipscombs comes to arrange Joir outfit i will Hare your place supplied for you until your return. To Morrow morning i will put you in full Possession my my preparations were soon made. The following Day 1 dined at the ranks. Tybera was no one present hut the family. After dinner i was invited to spend the evening there and As . And mrs Hanks had a Short visit to Norako Dora was left to entertain me until their return. Now if there was any thing in the world i would have Given ten years my life for it was for a the a Tryc with Dora a it Lieut any it Critico mine and yet now that i had it what Rould i say i Felt that to make love to Here i being a comparatively dior clerk would be under the circumstances a piece Gross ingratitude and a breach Confidence. Yet what could i talk about ? we sat minutes after the elder people had departed in embarrassed silence. Dora was evidently waiting for me to say something and that added to my Ein Barro monent. At length she took Tho initiative. A your departure Isa rather sudden determination is it not . Lovatt Quot a rather so miss Dora i beg Pardon miss Banks i a Long Pauso varied slightly by the very loud ticking an ormolu clock Tho Mantle accompanied Ity a terrible thumping und a my Waistcoat.
