In breeding for tho dairy it is important to know how to selcot calvcs that promiso to bo tho best milkers, which also makes thorn tho best brooders with which to im prove tho liord. Of course, it does not necessarily follow that a cow which will yio!d a largo supply of milk of a high tost will iproduoo hoifora equally valu able; but novortheless it must bo as sumed that a cow of tho description roferred to is moro likely to ,produoo a moro profitablo heifer than a cow possessing no rccord.

NATURE AND USE. (By B. Leslie Emslio, C.D.A, P.A.S.I, F.0.8.) FERTILISERS EMPLOYED AS A SOURCE OF POTASH. From a study of tiho early history of fertilising, it appears that tho mater ials employed were largely phosphatio nnd nitrogenous.

The light of tho discovory revealed tha cause of certain phenomena which hud hitiherto remained obscure. l''or instance, the iuoKased fortility of soils where wood ashes had been scattered had often been observed, and this effect was now traco able to tho potash, which tho ushw supplied.

(By "Ambroamo.") All the new coats and costumes are fashioned to show open-fronted collars and low-cut vests, which prove' so bo coming to the majority of wearers.

DAIRYING ON IRRIGATED LAND. A most interesting point has arisen in jvgaid to tho high percontago of fat which/ tho dairy oows aro yielding at the Yanco Stato farm in New South | iv'alcu. This institution i$ situated in the irrigation schemo at Yanco, about 200 miles from tho coast. It was noticed Jast year that tho Jerseys winch had been transferred to (thia farm gave much higher fat yields than animals of tho samo breed on tho^coast.

It is also urgjii that tho cows aro maintained*m a uniformly better conditiou and heart all the year through, for on tho coast tho feed lluctuates more when dry spcJJs pinch it. .
