on (the farm. . A; few pages arev given to
the explanation of the causes of changes
in the. milk; these are followed Jby refer
ences to the chief ways in which milk is
oontaminated and a description of the
methods by whiqh suth contamination may
be avoided. The' herd the employees, vthe
stable and its disinfection, the dairy house.
utensils, and .water are discussed. Dif
ferent steps in-dairy work mlMng, strain
ling, aerating, woling, storing, hauling
are dis'eussed .in furii. 1 Fifty rules -for the
dairy are given, arranged under the follow
ing, heads: -The owner and his helpers, the
stable, the 6wsr milking and tfhe uten
sils. Illustrations' show , the appearance of
bacteria in milk, some objectionable fea
tures and' some -model features . of dairy

The bulletin can be secured Ifree of ch'arge
from the secretary, of agriculture, br .:,a

From the statistics of the present year's
abundant harvests the Atlanta Constitu
tion publishes 'some selected figures , that
strikingly show the importance of this
country as a grain producer: Selecting
five of our cereal products, viz, corn, wheat
oats, rye and barley, it appears that the to
tal yield of these products for the year
1897 aggregates .not less than 3,20ff;O52,
000 bushels. ' . , '
This amount is divided among the va-
rious products in the following manner:
Cera 1,897,280,000 bushels, wheat 492,000,
000 bushels, oats 722,704,000 bushels, bar
ley 66,650,000 (bushels and rye 27,418,000
bushels. Of course, these figures are not
given out as. absolutely accurate, but as
mbs-of the, terms have already come in
tha verified statistics are not apt to differ
widely from the' resul t aboy e indicated.
As compared with last yearfc figures cov
ering these same products there appears to
be something of a shortage in the present
year's haryest,due (mainly to the failure of
tho corn crop. Tills, crop from the returns
at hand seems to be short of last year's by
nearly 400JD00400 bushels, . the total - crop
1 6r 1896 ibeing,4,283, 76,165 bushels, against
Lpnly .1,897,280,000 bushels , for the crop of
1897. This shortage in the present year's
"corn crop is partially supplied by the enor
mous yield of wheat, the crop for 1897 ag
gxegatihg 492,00,000 bushels against 427,
000,000 bushels for, the crop inl 1896. Ac
cordiag to these figures, the wheat crop
for the present" year is . 65,000,000 bushels
in excess of last year's crop. Another in
crease "'-of some 15,000,000 bushels Is noted
, in this, year's crop of bats. . Altogether the
grain harvest of 1897 is not as large as in
former , years, but its present magnitude,
neverpneiess aumees to show the very
great improtance which attaches to the
agricultural resources of this country.
As the United States is a great producer
of-cereals,' it follows also, that she is. a
great exporter of cereals. Europe is large
ly dependent upon us for bread-stuffs, and
consequently anosfipf our cereal exports
find their way - into the European mar
ket.. - '
