•Brltfcih Dulry, Imports. The returns of the statistical department regarding Ihe Imports of butter Rnd che0?e from foreign countries into the British markets are at hand, says Elgin Dairy Heport Taking butter, cheese and oleo. In 1896 the Imports were 6,208,416 hundred weight, valued at $113,714,609; an increase in the ainonnt of 308,767 'hundred weight, and In value 16,327,030 as compared with the amount and value of 1895. Of butter alone the imports for the year of 1896 amounted to a total of 3,037,947 hundred weight, valued at the enormous ,suin of 177,720,415. In the tables below we give the countries from which the butter was supplied, and 'the amounts for the years 1896 and 1895: • - . ' 1896. Denmark ,,1,228,784 France .,...467,901 Sweden ....... 323 t 829 1895. 1,162,770 454,843 310,809 191,201 313,398 - 66,932 •112,338 ' 88,940 Holland ..'. 234,469 Australasia ....... 219,015 United,States .... 141,653 Germany, ...;..... 107,825 Canada............ 88.357 Denmark, the little country in the Baltic, still keeps In the lead in increased shipments to Great Britain, and for the year 1896 nearly two-fifths of the whole imports wero_from that country. * France, Sweden and Hol-< land are also increasing supplies and developing their markets, but Germany has loat ground. The United States and Canada aro increasing their business in that line with Great Britain, and tho prospects are for a further intrease, providing our people as'well as the Canadians take hold of the export trade in thd proper spirit and are-willing to manufacture -and pack the butter in accordance with t'he 'wishes and desires of the merchants and dealers in Great Britain. Cheese imports and the countries from which they were received are given in the ta- to'le below: 1896, 1895. Canada ......1,234,297 1,150,018 United States 681,187; 600,419 Holland 292,988 305,920 'Australasia ..-55,149 92,769 France 46,676 66,393 Canada has slightly increased her hold on tho .cheese trade as Great Britain continually Increases the earne. This country has improved somewhat since the year 1895, and with the competition of filled cheese out of the way and the reputation for honesty once gained, that we have lost by the sale of BO much' of tho adulterated article, we have no doubt but the United States iwill again secure her position in the British markets for the iale of full scream cheese. Now when we come to •oleomargarine, the imports have declined from 1893 to the amount of 924,'943 cwt. The question that Is now agitating the British consumers, as well -•as"the British manufacturers. Is what amount of oleomargarine is Imported aa the real article.. The question Is becoming so important and is attracting 8p much attention, that the authorities are discussing the question of having s^ll Imports examined at, the port, Ibranded and stamped by the department to decide whether they are the real or adulterated articles. Irrigating Hill-Sides. The Country Gentleman calls attention to the test of a Connecticut farmer of the value of Irrigation on sandy soil. By the aid of 'rams water Is elevated .Iroxn a, valley Jbrpok to a reservoir at the top of the hill. From here it is" distributed to leading points on the farm in two and one-half Inch pipes, and from these oljj.dlscarded fire hose is used to dlstrWite the water pver the fields. Wooden troughs in twelve-foot sections feed into each other, and are. easily moved about'the fields. These are set at proper grades wherever wanted, and tho water turned Into them through the hose. By a series of little gates along the trough water is allowed *.o run down to rows of melons, Btraw- berr.ies or asparagus, the flow being regulated BO as to run freely, but without washing. This year, wishing to carry over some 'old strawberry beda for fruiting-another season, Mr. Eddy cleaned the rows, -narrowed them to eight or ten indhes, and turned "on the water. The beds " took on a new, strong growth, and are aa nearly perfect, as can .be, Then, to extend the plantations, runners from new beds, as new plants developed, were takc-u up with' little or no root and thickly lined out in rows a foot apart, tho water put trickling down the rows BO 'as to keep them moist all the time, and the little runners went at once to work making strong, new, plants with abundance of fibrous roots. Celery, cabbage and other crops ; are treated in like manner. '••_. '' ' " Profitable Dairying.—There Is no use trying to make dairying profitable on old lines. Better cows are needed at once, and they should have the beat care. Stock that has to stand out In all Wads of weather and has no shelter from the fierce storms that sweep across < those prairies, other than a barbed wire fence, will never yield enough milk to -be a source of Important lacoiae to the owner. Cows must ba well housed'aad well fed; sad better e»r«s of the B4ik before it goes to the creamery is absolutely essential. Cleanliness i» the biffo. about -the milk rooms, with the .pate :*&* cans In which the ttijlk la handled* rfbould re- Good Root* In Transplanting Tree*, Mr, H. M. ©tringfellow, a fruit grower of TexaS, and who is regarded in that section as a good authority on l practical Irult culture, has lately startled planters' by contending th'at, young trees planted for orchards, or, one may say, for anything else, are better without roots than with them. He cuts in all the roota to a mere stump, making the tree little more than a mere cutting, says Mohan's Monthly. The top Is of course at the same tlme^cut in severely. It Is argued that there is a great point gained, provided such treea aro equally successful — with; trees transplanted under the ordinary method with us. Many more can be packed in a case for shipping' in this way, and heavy transportation charges thus avoided. It has been long the thought of the writer that by far too much value is placed on the root fibers; and distinction should bo made between the true roots and root fibers. The ffber Is practically only a thread-like production which pushes out of the main roots in large quantities. They live only for one year, Just as the leaf does, and they can be of very little practical use to a tree in transplanting. The success of a transplanted tree cornea from the new production of these fibers. The food of a tree Is taken In by the root hairs, whlca are produced at the end of these little threads, and, unless there is a new production of these fibers, the tree will not grow. What ia needed In a successful transplanting is an— abundance of__two , or three-year-old roots, and nvt annual . planted tree much more of a succece than one not transplanted. When the large old roots are shortened, and a number of new, true roots proceed, this, Is the class of roots desirable. If there are a number of this class to the main stem of the plant, we should be apt to regard all the other mass of very old roots and half-dead fibers as being In the way of success rather than to aid it For trees generally, Mr. Stringfellow'o method will not be" adopted, but the thought Is useful in showing us the absurdity of many of our old views. Testing Skim Milk. The double-necked skim milk test bottle has now been in use about a year. Its principal advantage over the milk test bottle ia the fine graduations which it has lor measuring fat. Each graduation of the flouble-necked teat bottle represents .05 of one per cent fat and one graduation requires so long a epace on the scale that so small a quantity of fat aa .02 of one per cent can be measured by this scale. We have found by the use of these test bottle's at the Wisconsin Dairy school that an accurate test of skim milk may be made with them just aa easily aa with any other test bottle, although It Is not because of any fault In tho bottle. The test bottle measures the fat all right, but if the speed of the tester is too low or it is not run long enough only a small paf t of the fat Is separated ?o that it can be measuredi We have repeatedly noticed that while the usual amount of acid and speed of the tester may give satisfactory results when testing wholti milk, both acid and speed must be increased to give correct tests of skim milk. Whenever a skim milk test shows that the fat has not all been separated, although the fat in the test bottle may ba very clear and, to all appearance look as If the test was all right It Is very seldom, If ever, that a separator skims milk,, so .that the skim milk contains only .05 of one per cent fat, and when a teat shows leas than this amount of fat in a sample of skim milk it generally indicates that the test was BO made thai the fat was not all separated. In order to separate from eklrr. milk as much fat as is possible by the Babcock test, it Is^neces- "TjaryTo add ab"ourone~-thrrd" more than tho usual amount of acid to tho milk in the test bottle. This 'is clearly shown by the following results. A sample of skim milk was'tested twelve times. The amount of acid used in each test and the length of time the.tester was run each time, as well as the per • cent of fat obtained in each test,.are given in the following statement: er«M»f«1«s la first-class op. ti» toad *j4e«s that ttr », *"*«* «»* 4fe«* Maihroomi In the South. ' . (From Farmers' Riview.) I have read from time to time, with much Interest, your discussions concerning fleshy fungi as food plants. They certainly deserve much more attention than they have received heretofore. Here in Macon County, A la " bama, the woods are simply teeming at this time of the year with many varieties of luscious lycoperdons, one or two varieties of bovlsta and a large and beautiful species of clavaria. I have frequently Been massef^of It from six to^ eight Inches in diameter and two to three inches in height, and in such quantities* that a bushel basket, could have been readily filled; They are simply dellRinus In flavor and sought for eak«rly-by the people. -I have not seen many varieties of true mushrooms that 1-would want to use as food, although pc-rsoris who live here say theic aVe a prnut many'different varieties of the agarlclni, or toadstools; that are used for food. I have also: found two o^ three species of hydnum and boletas. Inn do not know if they are edible or not.. _As_far_as_l_hRve Investigated fleshy"fungi are" used to a much "great-" or .extent here than In the north and west, and I trust the time is not far distant when we will utilize the many thousands of dollars worth of the choicest food matnrial thai is now go- Ing ; 16 wastr- every year all over the Unitcd'Statefi., -. : j Bulletin 7|5 of thn Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station.-by Prof. L.

The'roots are clipped before Irchcliiug. The whole surface is mulched, th« beds (each consisting of three trenches eight inches apart) thoroughly soaked, apd a week after sprayed with Bordeaux mixture. The plants are kept in. the beds, where they can he fre- itiiently sprayed for mildew (which In Oswego county IB worse than rust) ubou.t six weeks. Ten thousand can tihus be treated on a square rod of land. About May 20 the plants are set m the fields, and will ordinarily need no inore spraying until after they have raude a crop. Mr. Farmer puts the wip- ter mulch on early, about as eobn aa the ground will bear a wagon. Horse manure is the preferred mulch. The Farmers' Review regards the above with a good deal of suspicion, and doea not advise He readers to try it It can hardly be believed that the plants set out iu Mar could develop enough roots to give a* large yle^l of fruit.

Farrlngton,. Wisconsin Dairy Schooll Milk Cans. At a convention in Minnesota, Jl K. Bennett said: Brother buttermakers, would it no* be well ia starting a creamery In a new- dairy section to ward off this evil be-, fore the farmers are supplied with, cams by going to the hardware men and'tell- ing them how a can should be made? Make it emphatic., and give your reasons.- In the care ot can8,-they are-to be kept clean and free from rust. They should he washed ,as soon as possible after being used. Rinse first with cold water, then scrub thoroughly with a 'brush both inside and outside-, using warm water—almost hot, off better, a good soap, suds, use It often, anyhow. Give particular attention to> the seams and don't forget the outsides. You know the inside Is often Judged by the outside. Finish with scalding water, not Just warm water. Tuva your, cans upside down long enough only to allow them to drain;, tuen leave them, right side up. or on their sides in the fresh air, r.nd you will have clean, sweet cans. It Is a very common error to leava them over a stake, or on a board. This Is a serious mistake, as invariably the cans will sour thereby. The hot air or steam rises and has no escape, consequently condenses in the cans a,nd sours. Much milk otherwise well cared for Is often tainted from no other reason. A rusty can should not be used, as it Imparts a foreign flavor to milk. Poultry Raining on th« Ffcrni. (Condensed from Farmers 1 Review Stenographic Report of the Wiscon-? Bin Round-Pp Institute.) Mrs, A. H. Lehman read a paper on the above topic. Her pap^r was follow-? ed by a discussion, a part of which was as follows: '• Q.—What breed of poultry do yoq recommehd for winter laying and for a market? A.—For laying in the winter I*would recommend a black fangshan, but for. market a Plymouth Rock', For turkeys I prefer- to raise the mammoth bronze. Q.—How large flocks are profitable? A.—That depends on how you ban-, die them. I .would not keep more than 50 together in one flock. I keep mine in flocks of about 25. You can keep as many as you want to on the farm pro-, vlded you keep them in separate flocks. Q.-^Would it pay to keep say 600 or 600 on a farm, if you kept then} separ rated? . A.—Yes,' sir. If you kept them in flocks Qf small size as I have said. Q.—What .is roup? A.—It is a cold'in the head, or catarrh.- You can tell it by the.birds having swelled heads. They will sneeze and cough. It IB usually, caused by damp^ places and by drafts. Damp quarters for poultry ore very bad. The" b«st remedy- is prevention. Keep the house dry and free from drafts. In th'elr drinking water put tincture of iron, at the rate of a teanpoonful In what a flock of fifty will drink in a day. Q.—Is roup catching ? —— A.—I think it Is k , . • —Q.—Which-are tho best layer»,-whlte- or brown leghorns? ''•'' A.—I think my 'brown leghorns have laid best this year. Q.—What do you do for diarrhoea? • A.—We use Venetian red. Q.—Do you follow the practice of whitewashing your pens? A.—Ye»; we whitewash every year, and the" pens should be cleaned out every week. '•-.".' Q.—What do you use for a ,dust bath? A.—• We S»e coal aghes very largely. Wood ashes are not BO good. They Beem to make their crops sore. Q.—Do yott have any trouble with the leghorns flying over your fences? A.—Yes, sin; and I have to cut the wings of some of them: But they do not alljly over. Q.—Do you wash the henhouse with: any Insecticide, and if so what? ' A.—Yes; wo sometimes wash the/ house with a mixture of carbpllc acid, and kerosene. We take a bucket ofi water and put in about a pint'of acid.. We buy the cheap acid that does, not cost much, and .put in a little, kerosene in the the water with it' -Q.-^-What do-you do for. scaly legs? A.—Kerosene- ia the best thing that you can use. Q.— yo* think about an underground henhouse? A.—I think that unless they are very well built and are well cemented that they will prove wet and consequently very unhealthfui I have known o£ some that were very sucessful, but in. those, cases the hens did not have to> stay in them at all by day. They had; access to a hay stack all the day. They used the houses only for roosting purposes. I think it is better to build small -pens-for birds rather than large one*. I build many pens in my house aad have an alley that runs before all the pens. This, prevents me from having to get Into, the pens"to feed and water the hena. ' ' Q.—Do. you let your hens, turkeys and geesa run together? A.—Yea; I.let them go together whea they are email. I am careful that the little ones do not get wet before they are feathered out, for, if they do get wet it will most certainly kill them and the little ducks will die just as certainly aa any other -bird. •'•.:• Q.—Do you advise feeding green cut bone? • ' , v A.—Yes, if you can get some oae to grind the bones; my men folks will not grind them.- * &AOICAU.Y -.QUtttM CATARRH ABACK* It clears the head of foul tmicottsj heals the *j sores and ulcers :6f the head and throaty ^ sweetens the breath, and perfectly restore^ \j the senses* of the taste, smell and hearing., «. -, : Stops headache and dropping ,into the &, tfctoat Also destroys the genii which causes «, HAV FEVER, , r ] making a perfect cure in a few days.
