The casein and other components of the two are practically the same in kind and proportions. From this statement of composition one can Judge' for himself whether this filled or lard cheese is a legitimate article of food, whether it is wholesome, and whether ho desires to use it in the diet of himself and family. It is mad& of comparatively cheap msterials, costing fiom one-half 'to two-thirds as much as good, full cream, factory .cheese, and its market price, wholesale or retail, should correspond. At its best, this is cheap, inferior cheese; it is almost devoid of flavor, oily or greasy when warm, and never attains the dry, crumbly consistency of a well cured cheese. It is sold when only a month or two from the press in imitation of mild, immature cheese. It is claimed that it does not keep well, especially if subjected to temperature above CO degrees. No one acquainted with first class full cream 'cheese would ever accept the filled product as a substitute, but it may be successfully passed as a genuine article of second grade. There is plenty of good cheese still made-in the United States, and it can be secured if buyers will but make a little effort to nnd it. The states of New York a.nd Wisconsin together produce two-thirds of all the cheese made in the 'country, and the reputation of the factories of these states for high quality, full cream cheese has been long established. The product of these factories of the standard or Cheddar form of large cheese stands second to none in the markets of Great Britain as well as in America. The two states named, as well as others, absolutely prohibit the manufacture and sale of filled cheese -within their borders and the marking of skim cheese to imitate full cream goods.

Of tears. The official figure Is given at 58000,000. This IS a fact pregnant with meaning for every farmer. No country has made permanent progress In agricultural prosperity Without sleep. Even on the 'high priced lande rf England and France it is found profitable to keep large flocks, indeed more profitable than the keeping of any other kind of live stock. Great Britain has today over 30,000,000 sheep on her small area, whilst France has over 20,000,000. These two countries, with an area together of less than one- tenth of the united States have one- third more sheep and better ones., The consumption of good mutton is increae* ing rapidly all over the country, and this increased consumption is here to stay and grow. Wool also must increase in value. The clip in Australia Will be Very largely decreased this year as she has lost over 9,000,000 Sheep from drouth, and this will undoubtedly affect the markets, as Australia produces more wool than any other country. Buy a few sheep and buy them gcod ones, and put a good buck with f HI the pullets well with insect powder, for you do not want to raise chicken lice, but if you are not careful you will. Now with this food and proper care they will begin to lay along in September and October. Then sell off your old fowls, clean the houses and whitewash them and the pullets moved in, and then on feed for eggs as follows: For four days in the week feed early in the morning a warm mash composed of one part shorts, one part bran, one pai't con meal, and add cooked potatoes or turn/ps and apple parings. Feed on boards or in troughs, only enough to supply part of their hunger ; give water all round, then scatter wheat or oats in the litter and let the aim be to keep the hens busy every moment from morning until night scratching for wheat and oats, which should be buried in the litter. Let the noon ration be green rye or a cabbage hung in the pens just high enough to compel the hens to jump to peck it. About 3 p. m. feed the whole grain, full feed, oats or wheat, and in the very coldest weather a' little corn. Keep grit or granulated bones so they can get at it all the -winter, and charcoal, don't forget to give them some. Clean pen, fresh water, pure air and a system of feeding such as is here outlined will bring money to the farmer every month in the year, try it. , them. The lambs alone will pay well on tho outlay if the sheep are properly cared for, and the wool and mutton will add to the profit.—Southern Plarter. Continuous Income from Poultry. F. A. Homann, of Efflngham county, 111,, read the following paper before a farmers' institute in that county: Eggs are all the year round crop, differing greatly in this respect 'from hay, corn and vegetables, which are all harvest time crops; and if not marketed at once, expensive buildings have to be prepared to store them in.and not a few crops such : as potatoes, cabbage and fruit, shrink in value by decaying while stored. Not -so with our poultry product, -which has an all the' year ready market, and with eggs as the basis of a poultry business a steady all the year round income can be commanded. It is the winter eggs that pay the greater profit and bring up the average price for the year, If the greater part of the eggs are received for spring and summer, when prices .are brought down by a large supply, the average will be lower, but if fowls lay in December, January and February when eggs are 20 to 30 cents a dozen the average price for the whole year will be satisfactory. The whole story of getting eggs in winter can be resolved into three simple rules. First, hatch the chicken early; .second, keep them Southdown Wool. The wool of the English breeds is thus referred to by the Journal of the Royal Agricultural Society of England. "Lastly, there is the pure Down, a wool which is still unequaled for hosiery purposes, and which will always find a market of its own, sometimes quite independent of the general course of prices. Of this wool I should like to say—keep to the old-fashioned style; keep it aa short and as fine as possible; let no suspicion of a long wool strain get into it; nnd if I am not mistaken, pure Down wool will take a respectable place in the future as regards comparative prices. With such ends in view, breeders o'f Southdowns may. well abstain from trying to imitate in length of staple . and superfluous covering of the face with coarse wool any other breeds of sheep, and be content to let the Southdown remain what its best friends have always tried to make it—i. e,, a producer of quality before quantity. . Slze'nnd IJeaiity. Says "Hark Comstock" in Rider and Driver: "I have not had as good chance to study the results of crossing the hackney on trotting mares, but see no reason why they should not bo successful where the latter are large enough, for the hackney is not so likely as the French coacher to contribute size to the combination. Like our old-style Morgans and Black Hawks of fifty years ago, the handsomest [specimens are apt to be undersized. Some of the attempts to breed up the size of old- style Black Hawks were accompanied by partial success, and their beauty and action in a degree preserved, but generally as the size -went up the proud style and fairly sparkling beauty of the strain;. lost their finest gloss. A most amazingly beautiful horse was Vermont Black Hawk, 'the bantam cock of the Green Mountains,' and he bred EO true to his o\yn likeness that breeding became a certainty. Two- thirds of his get were black, and any two of them were mates, and such mates! But the strain held to its small size with great tenacity,- or else lost something of its beauty. This dcpar ture of beauty with increased size' indicated that the characteriotic style of the strain was derived from some source that was inherently small. 1 do not know where the hackney breed secured its 'strut and swell and greatest pomp,' but it seems to me that'in too many cases the criticism that 'its little uns are its prettiest uns' points to like conclusions. The hackney strains back to thoroughbred foundations, but along with many classes unaccounted for." The most famstis tettdr wan faffneifi* file greatest naturalist was Linnaeus'.

They are, as a rule, very small holders, and when their small herds seem to be a losing proposition they do not hesitate long before letting them go. It Is the sum of these small holdings that make up the great aggregate, and/when the farmers begin selling their small flocks the number of sheep in the country speedily decreases, There is no branch ,of the live stock business that can be so readily adapted to changed conditions as the sheep business. Since 1893 the number of sheep in the United States has been constantly decreasing until now Abe total number is less than at any time during the past twenty years. Meanwhile the range of prices has been very low. It will not be long before there will be a change and sheep Will be in demand again at good prices. —EX. : " ' ' '''.':.- Scaling: Priced for Cowx. The North Carolina experiment station 'has evolved an idea that is worthy of adoption. • It is that cows should be bought -and sold at a price based upon their milk production. Many a northener has thougut that far, but how to apply in fixing a scale of prices tallying with the idea has been farther than they have gone. This is what the tar state professors have undertaken, however, and the scale formulated is as follows: Pay for the cow $12 for each gallon of three and a half per cent milk that she gives a day. To this add or subtract a dojlar for every fourth of one per'cent fat which it tests above or below three and a half per cent. Suppose the cow gives two gallons a day of three and a half per cent milk, She wouW be worth $24. If it tested threo and three-fourths, she would be worth one dollar more for each gallon, or two dollars more. If she tested four per cent, ehe would be worth two dollars more *for each gallon, or four dollars more, making 'her valua $28, If she gave three gallons ogy. Tlmt Terrlblo Sourtje.
