A Wisconsin sub scriber writing us recently said that one of the most important eficcts o! cow-testing was that it tests out th( cow owner as well as the cow. "That is the reason," he said, "why yot see so many farmers unwilling to en gage in it. They are afraid of them selves as well as their cows." That's a pretty sharp criticism, but we arc confident it is P. true i>ne in manj cases. There is such a lot of farm ers keeping cows who have n » prid< in their business, who arc willing tc do business with a lot of inferior, money-losing cows, provided thej thought their neighbours did not know it, that it is hard to rea«r them by any appeal to «oun«i ; of men ".vnnM have a horror in keepin::, lor instance, ; stack of i;oods or set of machine: that they are actually losing monej ...
