According to the reading of a paper at the British Dairy Farmers' Association conference, Welsh butter is a fearful compound. Montgomeryshire was pointedly referred to. In that county the holdings are mostly small, and only a few cows are kept on each; consequently the butter IR sent to market in small quantities of very variable quality. "The butter so brought," we are told, "is purchased by higglers, who, with dirty hands, pack it in a rough and ready fashion into still dirtier boxes and hampers—the good, bad, and Indifferent lots altogether—and consign it to consumers in the large towns, where It Is brought into competition with the clean and neatly packed foreign butter." It is not to be wondered at that Welsh butter has a bad name, and that the price made for it is so low. There is no doubt that in some parts of Wales It is difficult to get butter and produce to market, owing to the great distance from a railway or large towns, but that need not affect the quality or cleanliness of the butter. It does appear to do BO, however. 'We have heard this summer of English butter makers sitting in the markets, unable to sell It at 8d. per pound, whilst In the shops in those towns Brittany and Danish was being retailed at from Is. to Is. 2d. There is something dreadfully, wrong,when this is the,case. Either quality is bad, or jpeopleVtaste'u' have grown into a preference for the blended and mild Brittany butter, or the retailer will not trouble himself to sell the English when the foreign causes him lees trouble in purchasing and greater regularity of supply to customers. There is said to be a lack of enterprise on the part of the Welsh producers In not sufficiently realizing the necessity of making a better article. But as a matter of fact, they are be- innlng to realize It. Only recently Welsh farmers' wives were lamenting that .they could not sell their butter even ftt 8d. per lb., and that a gentleman who is making this article on the best and most approved principle is spoiling the trade by making it difficult to sell good, and impossible to sell bad, butter at any price—the standard of quality being that of the Welsh dairy folks, though good might not be considered so by an experienced buyer or judge. Quality and preparation for marketing is what Wales is deficient in, and it Is the case unfortunately in all parts of tho kingdom. The difficulty might be got over by the establishment of blending factories; which could bo. put up for very little money, and from them could bo sent butter of unvarying quality In quantities sufficient to induce the re- taller to undertake.Us distribution an readily as he now does the foreign article. Total <.«,.. $6,850,846.45 These figures tell thelf own story, although they seem almost beyond bo- lief. Add to this the value of poultry and eggs consumed by the producer, and that sold to dealers tor local cofl* sumption (undoubtedly greater than that of any other product) atid we have a sum that would unsettle the ordinary bank cashier. Poultry raising Is flat sitaply a "hobby" Ifi.Missoari'attd-tho Great West, <tr*. *«ttc(6# With It. Poultry j)eoj>le are evidently to their share in the tuberculosis sensation. At a recent meeting of the V. S, Veterinary Medical Association at Buffalo, N. Y., there was a paper by Dr. D. E. Salmon of the II. S. Bureau of Animal Industry which treated principally on 'Tuberculosis in Birds, and" was pronounced one of the most complete and interesting ever prepared on tho subject. He quoted many foreign authorities and said the disease was transmissable from bird to man and vice versa. The identity of avian and human tuberculosis is well demonstrated by Koch and other eminent investigators. Parrots are very prone to contract the disease, and it early affects Polly's speech. Parrots are easily affected with human tuberculosis, and a parrot so affected is a constant menace to the people in the same house. He said the proper treatment is to annihilate all diseased birds, chickens, etc., the disinfection of yards, feeding and drinking places, etc., and advised that human consumptives be kept away from poultry yards. Dr. Knowles said that the poultry business in America is greater in value than the beef and pork trade. Dr. R. P. Lyman of Hartford, Conn., thought the paper should be promptly circulated among veterinarians and poulterers. \ Fat Variation*. Field and Farm:—In natural milk a small amount of albumen is present, but in colostrum the amount of albumen often exceeds the amount of casein, and these two constituents may form over IB per cent of the milk. The percentage of sugar in colostrum is usually low; the fat is normal. The composition of colostrum changes rapidly, and within a few days after tho birth of the calf natural milk is given. After this the percentage of fat iq the milk of any cow varies more 01 less from day to day, even if her feed, care and general treatment are always alike. The causes of the sudden changes are not always known; in fact, the fat often seems to increase or decrease without any cause. Sometime?, the fat content changes over 30 per cent within twenty-four hours. As th« period of lactation progresses there it a tendency to gradually increase in tlu total solids, and the physical condition of the milk is so altered that the crenre rises less easily. tttnnbt ttliift Itapplnti**.
