PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. i Frequent milking, but o-nIy a Jittle I at a tims, is found one of the best pre ventives,, and for this reason leaving, the calf with the cow (some say for 24 hoursj but for a week is better) is generally successful. As gross feed ers,; good doers, and heavy milkers are more liable, it is a good plan to take these off green feed, aiid put on a . spare diet of dry fodder a week before calving. ■ About three or four days be fore calving a purgative is advisable. For . this, 8oz. glauber salts, loz. gin ger, and a little treacie, in a quart of water, will be found * effective. As the acecpted oure by means of pure air pumped into the udder seems 10 point to the fact that an anaerobic (without air) bacteria is the cause, it is advis able on this and other grounds to vig orously disinfect floor and walls* of bj'res, rugs, utensils, etc., and flush out the oow. A milk-fever outfit should i always be kept, so that pure air can j be pumped in, and the udder and su...

TO GET RID OF SORREL. Sorrel is a weed which gives a lot of trouble on some of our lisria'"-or laods, and is not easy to get rid of. There are two methods of treating land on which this troublesome weei grows. One way is to cultivate i.'io land in the summer months with tined implement, and so gradually kill the sorrel by dragging it put and exposing it to the sun ; and tbn other way is to plough the land fairlj deeply at the end of the win ter, and sow a crop of peas or spring barley, which will get a good start before the sorrel, which docs not make much headway in the win ter. 1'923..
