FEEDING SCIENTIFICALLY. fici.tls .f v,,,..ri iK:, tlie II issaell II- elt Asrieuitural Slal'mn. - There are llaee , la-.es ,-f subsianc.:.--ih.-ii "ive due to food for animals or liiiman beings--f.,1, -eroteiii and caibo-hvd.-ales.

We can easily under stand that all these classes of substances must be fed an.l that trouble will follow if we ..rive too much of one and too little lit-tle of another.

In fact, the corn has too little protein while the linseed lin-seed meal has too much. It would pay better to buv one dollars worth of each of these foods and mix them than to bnv two dollars- worth of either one. A good sized cow should digest each day food enough to contain s'lj pounds of protein, IV; pounds of carbohydrates and ,' . pound of fat, or more 'in the same proportion.' A portion of this may be fed in the form of hav, fodder Of ensilage, en-silage, but the gram' is needed to give the ration S4.-ength without adding too o.i.el. b, its Loll. The problem is to buy the grains that bring most to the farm for the money. If a niau buys Cotton seed meal or liii seed meal he would be foolish to feed it with the same measure used in feeding cornmeal or bran. Six pemnds of corri-ineal corri-ineal might have the best effect on a tow if fed' with clover hay, while six pounds of cotton seed meal, costing the same money, might kill her, because it would supply too much protein. We doubt it it will pay any farmer to feed heavily of concentrated foods unless he is willing to give up the "forkful'' and quart system sys-tem and feed by the scales with the idea of giving so many pounds of fat, protein j an.l carbohydrates to each animal instead in-stead of so much "hay anil grain' Tables of analyses are now easily ob tained and the farmer can figure them out. In these times of high prices it will pay any farmer to figure on this matter. Too many farmers are biu ing cornmeal for protein, which is just about as economical as buying sawed and planed lumber for firewood. liie Stock Points. A hog breeder illustrates the differ' ence between a man and a hog thus: "A men's digestion fails before his appetite, does. A hog's appetite-falls before his digestion does." Cotton growers are unusually discouraged discour-aged in some parts of the south. Tlie, old system was for the planter to run in debt for supplies from the time one c.tton crop was sold till the next grew. Even his pork he imported from tha north, when as good pork as the country affords can be made in the south by every farmer. A powerful effort is being made to induce agriculturists iu the cotton slates to quit the old wasteful, waste-ful, dependent methods and laise upon their own ground live stock, grain of all kinds and fruits and vegetables. When the southern farmer does this ha will be for the first time independent. The I south' is the grandest poultry region in I this Union.

The disease known as j farcy is al.-o disens-.ed. the dirfeieiice between glanders and farcy, according to bulletin 7 ot the Michigan station, is this: The term glanders is user! when the interior of the nose, the lungs or other portions of the organs of respiration are affected, while the nani6 farcy is used when the outside of the body is attacked. (Danders can- j not be communicated f rom one horse to another from the breath. The infection is spread from tlie offensive matter that is dischaiged, and Ibis is found at public horse trongh i, stables or upon harness, blankets, etc. This is how Field and Farm sizes it up: "Remember pasturing takes rive acres to each cow for six months; soiling feeds a cow on one acre for six months; ensilage feeds a cow on one acre for a whole year." Look here. A Chicago paper asks: "Why in the world are not a few more enterprising women, with a small capital at their disposal, ccnutuj forward n poultry faraxers?"'
