The Lion end the 0
?-'any lonr yenrs ago
Friur b'xen lives! in a woo-1 ;
A lion hflt in a cave below,
By the river'? gentle flow,
Near where the oscn fed.
The oxen together wouliTit.ind,
An3 not one would strny away :
Thev'd formed themselves iuto a band
And if by each other stand,
Thc.Iiou could never take them irey.
The lion vowed with ennninjr skul
Tliis band he would devour.;
lie h'.y awake far in the night,
Devising plans by which he might
Get thea in hid power.
Yet all his plaii? wentd f;,.;l.
The oxen he could never catch,
Yet he kept working steadily on
Knowing it would not be long j
Before he'd prove the oxen's match.
The lion was afraid . i
To attack all four at once,
Knowing that with four to one,
- lie never could the victory win,
Ahd he'd better not be a dunce.
One summer TCorruncr bright
The lion chancel to meet the four; 1
He told them plainly how they might
Be pet upon by wolves at night, j '
For they had been there once bv'fcr?. g
, "Yes," said the treacherous lion,
''The wolves will certainly come j
You had better divide year band,'
And station one at each end
Of the forest surrounding your home.
,The oxen on hearing this j
Did not know what to do. ;
Of the wolves they were nfrai l,
Knowing that when a raid was made
They spared nothing they came to.
To take' the lion's advice
The oxen tronght it would be right, '
So'thcv divided their band,
And t-jok their station around
In order the wolves to Eght.
The lion had divided the band, j
He'd worked with cimi.iiig skill, j
Now to kill thc-in one by one
Was very easy to be-dune.
Aid then he ate them, at his will.

when the weather becomes cp!d; bu
she ought not to be so exposed. Th
mihv machinery is very (UMicater' a;n
requires constant watching to koej
everything ,m good running order
There is no animal on the farm tha
requires so much care as the niiiei
cow: size is very -sensitive and delicate
and any change in the weather affect
her very much; sq that you lose nione
very time you needlcssiy expj;se her.
A good many dairyman do not sue
ceed because they do not use goo;
judgment in taking care of their cows
A cow that is turned out in the h;;Id i;
the morning, no matter what tin
weather i, to travel over a weather-
beaten stalk field until night, Will not
give her owner good returns at the
milk pail. I remember turning a herd
cf twenty-five cows into a sixty acre
stalk field in the fall of the vear; the
result was a shrinkage la their milk o
fifty" pounds per dav. I only left then
out two days. I never thought theiv
was vcrv much r.r.unshment in
weather-beaten- corn stalk tor am
dock, and especially for a milch cow-
Some people think thev ought to bt
out most of the day for exei;t'ise, to
keep them healthy, but that is a wrong
idea.- Thev are altogether different
from the horse.
The horse was made to travel, and lie
needs exercise to keep hyii healthy, but
the cow ought to be kept quiet md
com f or tabled f you expect her to give
you good returns; and at the jjirice oi
'lutter and milk for the last tlii.ee or
four years we must attend to jaie de
fails of the dairy, and put alt the skill
in it that we can, if we expect any
profit out of it.
The cow ought not to have ice wa
ter to drink, and then be left. in the
cold wind to shiver. Any dai.yman
that will treat his cows jn thaj, m m
rifr has certainly mistaken his falling,
and the sooner he retires from the bus
iness the better itviil be, at lefrst far
the cows. !
It is ten years since I commenced
warming water for my cows, ami it has
always paid me wll. My cows are
kept in the b.im most of the time in
winter, 'unless the weather is t o that
yon can stand outside and be comfort
able without an overcoat on. -When
it is colder than that, or a coojl wicd
blowing, th' y are left out onl;v lonsx
enough to drink, and then put back
into the barn.

your barn is sojcold thai U will freeze

As the way-of tustecjng thecovs.
there is a great '.different:! of opinion.

plenty of room, so that .thej.. are com
fortable wiien Jyiug dowH. With two
by four stanch ions the cows can see
you bet tar wheu passing beiiind'Hiem,
and are not so liable io kick.
The cow ought to be treated with
jeutlene.ss at all times. Sbc ought uct
to be afraid of the ptrseu who takes
care -of her, so that wbr 5n. fhe yard,
instead of the cow moving out of the
way he should have to go around her.
There is a goed deal of annoyance
caused by trying to put cows in the
barn without any feed in the manger.
There ought to be something tliere
that that the cow likes, then when
she puts her head in the stanchion in
her own place sha will remain there
until fastened. There c-ught always
be something in tlr? hutnger to attract
the cow, then it wili not require a dog
and two men with clubs to "get her
into the barn. .
The manger ought not to be more
than twenty inches-wide in the bottom,
from the stanchion, una three feet at
the top. If made wider th in twenty
inches at the bottom, the cow, when
reaching to get the feed, will be liable
to slip into the drop, and in so doii-g
may be injured, and the manger needs
to be: t hive feet wide at -the top so that
