A useful question was put by a cor respondent to the Amorican papor 'Wallace's Farmer,' when ho for warded a sample of his skimmilk to tho paper, wishing to know whether ho was losing ? any buttcrfat through tho separator not working properly. 1UU QUU1£/1U nrilt UUIJ' IL'SLUU, UI1U II. gavo an unusually high test for skim milk, viz., a half of ono per cent. fat. It may not sound vory much, but in practico it moans that if this farmer was separating SDOlb. of milk daily, he was losing 2 Jib. of fat, or nearly 31b. of butter daily. A simple calculation will soon show what that means in a weok — a month — a year — even if it bo admitted that tho loss of a small quan tity of fat ovory day is inevitable. Close Skimming. Farm separators may do poor work for a variety of reasons, and tho only way to detect poor skimming is to havo a samplo tCBted now and again.

Tho former were becoming a groat pest in tho Mudgeo district, owing to their destruction of bags holding seod-wheat and fodder, and tho diffi culty of keeping them out of buildings.
