Dairying is not very clean work,
but most money has a little dirt stick-

The amount of butter made on the

BEST OF SEPARATORS
This is really the fact in frhe purchase of a
DIv IyA\ AI< CREAM SEPARATOR. Any reputable
person may buy a DE LAVAL machine 011 such liberal
terms that the machine actually pays for
And it not only does this the first year, in which
it s.aves its cost, but goes on doing it for fully twenty
years to come. In the tace of these facts buying trashy
" casli-in-advance " separators, or any other than the
best, is penny wise, dollar foolish. Such machines
quickly lose their cost instead of saving it, and
then go on losing instead of saving.
There is no possible reason why any buyer of a
Cream Separator should be content with less than the
DE LAVAL, and there never was a more promising time
to'make this most profitable of all" farm investments.

for use. When the cow's udder 13 in
good condition it is easier to teach
the calf to drink when'it is taken away
before sucking at all. In nature the
calf gets its milk often but in small
quantities, and always at blood tem
perature. In- this rpspcct we should
imitate nature so far as possible. At
first the calf should not be fed over
ten pounds daily—one quart equals
about two pounds—divided into three
messes; four pounds in the morning,
two at noon, and four at night. This
quantity may be increased gradually '
to twelve pounds daily. Calves will eat
a little grain when three weeks old.
Sometimes it is necessary to rub a
handful into the mouth, but once they
learn what it is they will go right
along eating grain. Do not feed the
grain in the milk, but give it dry in a
box which should be eleaned out fre-
quently and fresh meal put in every
second or third day. When a month
or six weeks old, the calf will eat one-
half pound of grain daily, when three
months, three-quarters of a pound, and
when five months, one pound. The
best grain is chopped corn or wheat.
As soon as the calves will eat a little
hay, generally when about four to five
weeks old they should have a little
fresh clover or alfalfa.
A most interesting and valuable pub-
lication entitled "Information Concern-
ing the Milch Goats," has just been is-
sued by the bureau of animal industry,
U. S. department of agriculture. The
author is Hon. George F. Thompson,
of Kansas, who is editor of the Agri-
cultural Department and whose work
in the past has done so much to pop-
ularize the Angora in this country.
This bulletin on the milch goat will be
a revelation to many in that it shows
the large number of different breeds
of inilcli goats, their proper breed in::,
management and care, and their high
value as milk producers. In propor-
tion to weight of animal the milch goal
is a much larger producer than -is the
milch cow and her milk has a higher
nutritive value. When properly fed m
and cared* for, the goat gives milk ot "
fine flavor that is especially valuable
for invalids and infants. Many brands
of cheese are made from goat's milk,
used alone or combined with Sheep's
milk or cow's milk.
• The bulletin is an example*of the
thorough and painstaking work so
characteristic of Mr. Thompson.
