WONDERS OF THE DAIRY, The Milking Machine and the Combined Chum and &mtef Wdrket ment the dfeatn Separator \ Machinery Does All the Work—Mr. Spur- heck Tells Of the Wonders df Modern Invention Applied to Dairying. J. W. Spurbeck attended the state dairymen's convention at. Waterloo last week, and he says the great feature of the convention was the trial of the new milking.machine. This ma* chine is the 'invention, of a Waterloo man, A. J. Cushman, and is sold by the A. J, Cushman Company of that place. Mr. Spurbeck was one of the men who were admitted with the committee to see the trial of the machine. When a larger number were admitted the crowd became so dense that it was almost impossible for. the men who were working the machine to do their Work. The machine is comparatively simple. A continuous gas pipe passes along the bottom of the manger iu front of each stall and to it is attached a rubber hose four feet long, to which are attached'the milking cups. These cups are fastened over the teats of the cow and held there by air pressure, the suction quickly drawing the milk from the udder. The pressure for the entire number .of cows is supplied by a machine out of doors. The cows take very kindly to the new mechanism, in fact if their actions count for anything, it is away ahead of the old process. The iron pipe leads to a large- reservoir and the most absolute cleanliness is insured. These machines costs $200 apiece, but they save a great deal of the hired man's time. Mr. Spurbeck saWten cows milked, in sixteen minutes. W.. C. Wheeler,' the great Sac county^ farmer/ has on'&'- of ^^ttil^ta^e^^egreteip^that' ,tbe> "ma, ( wks,sperfe.ctly|Vand that', four" men areTnow milking his ninety-seven cows in about an hour and a half. He has a large barn in which there - is a stall for each of the herd of milch cows, The automatic inilk weigher is another new thing that attracts the attention of dairymen, but Mr. Spurbeck seems to have been more deeply interested in the Fargo combined churn and butter worker. This" is a $150 machine, and Mr. Spurbeck has already been • the means of introducing one into this county. With a separator to supply the cream and'one• of these combination machines, the farmer only needs the patent milker to enable him to set the machinery in motion and let it do the rest, The milk flows from the gas pipe into the'separator from which it flows in two streams, the skimmed milk being, carried to the hog bouse and the cream to the churn and butter worker. T,h§latter churns,.salts akbl wprks the butter and delivers it in fresh yellow"rolls ready for the.table, RESTING TELEGRAMS. 1) and they in ignorance of the facts.
