No word In agricultural etymology
Is so often encountered as protein.
To a person not versed In farm
chemistry the term is more or less
confusing and to many others it has
no meaning at all. To such people It
Is Just an empty, technical phrase
The word Is most frequently en-
countered in articles on feeding.
Protein Is the opposite of fat. It Is
about the same as albumen.
In feeding we have two principal
classes of foods. One is the carbon-
aceous or starchy foods. These go to
fat. The other is the protein foods, i
These go to make milk, eggs and J
meat. The protein foods are tissue 1
In balancing rations we have to
see, therefore, that the animal does
not get too much of one kind of food.
In feeding a cow, for Instance, we
cannot feed her corn alone as this
goes to fat rather than to milk. There
Is some protein In corn but not
enough. On the other hand it would
( not be advisable to feed a cow food
like alfalfa, whose content is practjc- i
ally all protein. To begin with fat is j
the principle on which an animal de-
pends for bodily heat and energy. So 1
a cow, for this reason alone, should
have corn or other grain or hay In
which there is starchy matter. Then,
too, she needs some carbonaceous
food for the milk as there is con-
siderable fat and sugar in milk.
If, however, we feed too much
protein some of It Is bound to go to
waste. 8he will use half of It for
maintenance. One quarter of It goes
to milk. From the other quarter her
digestive organs extract the fatty
principle if there Is any; If not some
Is held by the system In reserve; the
rest passes out of the system.
Of course, ln feeding, we have to be
guided some by temperament, in-
dividuality, and other conditions in-
cluding metabolism. Metabolism is
I the way the food Is assimilated, or
| rather, it refers to the chemical
changes that the food undergoes in
the stomach. We can't say here is so
much corn and depend that it will
make just so much fat or feed so
much protein with the idea that It
will be converted into an equivalent
amount of milk. Some of the fat-
making elements may combine with
still other elements and be converted
into meat while the protein may be
converted partly into fat. These
changes, however, occur only when
there is such a serious lack of balance
in the food, that the well-being of the
animal is interferred with. In such a
ease Nature steps in and makes a
Herculean effort to correct the mis-
take in part. She can't make a com
plete balance but she can save
But when we want to put on
we feed corn or something that car-
ries the same elements. When we
want to put on solid flesh we feed

falfa or clover and by-products like

I was a widow and had a child de-
pendent upon me. It was to protect
her future that I wanted to insure
"Fortunately for me, I happened to
read an advertisement containing a
testimonial from a man who had been
affected in the same way that I was
with heart trouble, and who was bene-
fited by leaving off coffee and using
Postum. I grasped at the hope this
held out, and made the change at
"My health began to improve imme-
diately. The headaches and neuralgia
disappeared, I gained lu flesh, and my
appetite came back to me. Greatest
of all. my heart was strengthened
from the beginning, and soon all tie
distressing symptoms passed away No
more waking up In the night with my
heart trying to fly out of my mouth'
"Then I again made application for
life insurance, and had no trouble ln
passing the medical examination.
"It was seven years ago that I be-
gan to use Postum and I am using it
still, and shall continue to do so as I
find it a guarantee of good health."
