Sometimes it seems as if poor or iged food may be given fowls and without injury if it is skillfully mixed with the better quality, although there is a ri^k in this sort of feedng. The horse, on the other hand, does nor to he able to take his share of and the feeding of it : esults in a bad stomach or I trouble. These organs of the horse are much more sensitive and tte than is generally supposed and should therefore be used in tng. Poor hay is another bad thing for horses and it is also poor policy to attempt to carry a horse very far on hay, whether good or poor, and water, feeding small quantities of grain. Be- i all doubt oats are the best of any grain for horses, but it is quite as good policy to furnish variety to the horses as to the other stock on the farm, but making sure that the animal has one feed daily of first class oats, and that oats form one of the grains in one of the mixtures of the day. Let all of the food be first class, including the hay, and the horses will thrive on it and really eat less than of the poor food. HORSE STEAKS IN GERMANY. Consul-General Mason at Berlin, Ger- many, sends a report that horse steaks are a common article of food in Ger- many, and that horse meat consump- tion is on the increase. In southern Germany, and notably in Saxony, where the percentage of working peo- ple in factories is large, the consump- tion of horse flesh is an important item and is rapidly increasing. About 3,S00 horses were killed in Breslau alone last year, for human food. In Berlin, the choicest cuts of horse meat sell at eight and ten cents a pound. Heat from the poor quar- ters or meat from any part of poor, old or inferior horses brings three and four cents. The liver is considered a delicate morsel and brings 10 cents a pound. , The inferior pieces are ground into the strongly spiced and garlicky sau- sages that are the favorite food of many German servants and working people. These sausages must be plain- ly labeled "horse flesh." Outside the city this regulation isn't in force, so that large quantities of horse sausage are sold in the country districts or are exported to neighboring countries as ordinary pork sausage. DAIRY QUALITY INHERENT. The early Shorthorn and Teeswater cattle possessed much dairy excellence and when first brought to America Shorthorns earned the name of the milk breed. Among old records are those of cows giving six, eight, and even nine gallons of milk a day on grass alone. Although now latent in most lines, a dairy quality seems in- herent in the breed which some careful managers are able successfully to de- velop and propagate. Records of sev- eral dairy herds in the United States within a quarter of a century show a milking season of about 275 days and an average product of 6,500 pounds of milk. One herd of ten cows, from three to twelve years old, gave 7,750 is each in a year. Single cows have averaged much more, several in- es being known of 10.000 to 12,000 Is in a season. The Shorthorn milk is of good quality, rather above the average. The fat globules are of um and fairly uniform size so that m separates easily, it is rather â¢ lor. In 1824 a cow near Philadelphia made over twenty pounds "i butter in a week without special feeding. Herds of forty cows have ujed 209 pounds of butter a year, The herd of ten cows mentioned aver- ds, and single cows have records of 400 pounds and over, one â ounds. i< i hal thi Shetland puny ipular pet among all the rials, a dog maa d somi foi l boy; i r a bird may "Mi; but more genuine pli as- ure ni;i\ be had rmin ;â pony for bol h boys and girls, thai m mythtng with which children can play, whether i Its or â ountry.
