Poof dairying is overdone, but good dairying is not. This is about as correct an answer as occurs at this time, writes F, W. Mbse- ley in Indiana Far* mer. The number of cows anywhere cannot be Increased only at about a certain ratio each year, Tho-e who keep cows for dairy purposes keep small herds as a rule, and until a successful milking machine has been produced and comes into general use this condition will likely continue. Of course there are some large dairies in this country where cows are kept by the •hundreds, but such herds are rather rare exceptions, and a good proportion of them are kept by milkmen not far from large cities. These herds are kept up by purchase, and the owners of them can be more properly called milkmen than dairymen. They are not dairymen in the true sense. They do not raise their herds nor the crops on which they nre fed, but depend mainly on purchase of feed used. Most of these herds are managed very successfully, and by men who give the business intelligent attention. There is little danger ,of the milk i business, as It relates to large cities, being overdone. But if at any time it should be, those in it on a large scale near cities can get out of it very easily by disposing of their herds. Those who are distant from the cities who have been furnishing milk for milk routes, can easily change to some other branch of the business, such as butter or cheese-making. The real question whether dairying is overdone, or likely to be overdone, applies to those dairymen who have for years been growing up herds for dairy cows, and to all farmers who keep a few cows, and who can each year, if they choose to do so, increase them up to the capacities of their farms, which capacities will be constantly increasing if the right system of dairying is correctly conducted. One great thing in favor of dairying is that the real profit consists in not seeing how many cows a farm will keep, as much as in seeing how much can be produced from each cow. These dairymen who practice the best methods and get the best results cannot be driven out of the business by ,an occasional depression of prices. The man who makes his small herd of, say six to twelve cows, produce as much butter or cheese as his neighbor who keeps nearly double that number, will not say anything about dairying being overdone, because his products cost him less, and as a result he gets more for them pound for pound than the dairyman who is keeping double the number of cows. The result will be that the man who does not succeed In dairying will go out of the business; either that or improve his methods. In addition to our home markets we have good markets abroad, provided we furnish good dairy products. However, our home markets can be greatly enlarged by the same means, and the additional means of producing a greater variety of dairy products. This last reference is mainly to the different variety of cheese that can be produced, and such varieties as will create a greater demand-for cheese among American people. Doubtless the dairy interest has suffered more from bogus dairy prod-, ucta than from any over-production of genuine goods. But it is safe to say that there has been a great change in public opinion in regard .to curtailing the output of bogus goods to be sold as genuine. No- objection is made to the manufacture, of .oleomargarine and butterine if they are sold for what they arej but the presumption is that in a large per cent of cases persons who buy them for consumption buy them for genuine products. This is not right and should be stopped, and in a great measure will be, Taking everything Into consideration, we think it is safe to conclude, as stated In t* 10 fl rs _t sentence of this article, thatgqod dairying is not overdone, and further, that it is in no immediate danger of being overdone, Like all other branches of agriculture, It will have its seasons of depression, but'as a rule less frequent than In most other lines of farm products. »* caan to one customer f6M6cem StSW <wild i B M ahtita f he tnflf feet tJtifiet ttfr w&n anting every egg fresh, and fuf* nishing eniy clean, attractive looking eggs. 1 say ta an? custSmef whs will agree to take eggs regularly til !ae: "If you find a bad egg among them, I *ill replace It with twd." 1'ean atfofd to make this offer because 1 attend t6 gathering the eggs myself, and as 1 leave no nest eggs and have clean nesta my eggs are toot only good and fresh, but attractive in appearance.

Wentcrh Sheep Men. The heaviest sheep owners of ddl' erado and Wyoming are ttot the mett who came into this country from tweh» ty to twenty-five years ago with capital that they invested in herds, but the owners of thousands of sheep at the present day are their former employes, says Denver Field. The men with trie capital obtained the experience, not always profitable, while the hired herdsmen, many of them very intelligent Americans from the east, obtained their wages and profited by their experience. They secured little flocks that have now grown to thousands in number of sheep, studied conditions carefully, adapted themselves to the conditions, until to-day they are able to profitably compete with the great wool-producing foreign countries. Tho sheep owners of the past in this country endeavored to run what they called a sheep ranch. This means keeping the herds on the same tract of land year after year until the land was unable to sustain them. Rotation in pasture for sheep Is just as necessary as rotation of crops on a farm. This system of changing ranges or pastures for sheep has been the custom in Spain and Switzerland'for centuries, and also other countries. Sheepmen have failed by trying to keep the sheep winter and summer on the same, range. There have been exceptions to the eastern methods, but they are few. An English Co-Operative Failure.— Many of our readprs will regret to hear that the effort lately made in the north to establish a co-operative association for the sale of Aberdeenshire meat in London has failed. The scheme was generally a good one, but it met with inadequate pecuniary support, notwithstanding the fact that It was taken up both by lairds and producers. The objects aimed at were to supply the consumers in London with the best quality of the genuine Aberdeenshire produce, and to enable the producer to leceive the full value of his cattle and sheep, without so much of the profits being diverted into the pockets of middlemen. The exposures made before the house of lords'commission, and other circumstances, have created a conviction in the minds of northern farmers that they were being defrauded l^y the state of things prevailing in the meat trade, and A remedy was sought in co-operation. The method proposed was to open shops in the metropolis exclusively for the sale of northern beef and mutton. There is little doubt that purchasers would have appreciated the opportunity that would have bean thus afforded them for obtaining prime British-fed meat, about the origin of 'nicii there could be no deception. But the scheme, has failed on the financial difficulty—sufficient capital was not forthcoming; and for the present both producers and consumers will have to be content with the old arrangements of supply and sale.—London Farmer. f he reporter replied with question in ili'cdnceaifed impatience. - "is what?"
