T. R. DAWSON. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
T. R. DAWSON. We lhave received the following most interest ing letter from Mr. T. R. Dawson, of Leeds, England: "I should like to thank your solvers for their interest in my No. 3612. I had no idea so many :of your readers would tackle it, and I am teuipted to send you tile following notes on it, and on the subject ir general. You may make any use of them you wish. "I had, in my earlier versions of the puzzle, the colors transposed, as suggested by 'Lethe,' with a 27) move solution, but I found the 28 move arrangement as given more diflicult on account of some good tries, so I left it as set. The ambiguity of 'one knight visits every corner' never struck me. Probably better would be 'one knight makes a tour of the four corners.' "The genesis of the puzzle will show how the most casual idea may be very frunlitful. I had copied for entry in my eccentricity collection the following retractor: "I.

Is.it necs.ary to use viscogen in sour crcr.m to pasteurise it suc cessfully? Does pasteurising lhave any in fiuenc on the length of time required for churning? Does the use df viscogen have any influence on -the churiiing cf cream ?" In reply,'if cream is alrea'dy badly tainted, pasteurisation will not remove the taint, but:it 'will prevent any fun ther increase in the off flavor, Ifthe ream contains over 0.2 per cent. pas~teuriing it will cause the formation of hard lumps of rasein that would show in -the butter.

BREEDING AGE OF HEIFERS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914
BREEDING AGE OF HEIFERS. Sir,--Tn the discussion of this question in "The .Leader," there "appears bIt little uniformity of opinion oi-practice. The majority of dairy farmers prefer. toihave heifers freshon,'as-'ar as mnay be, at 2 years of age, primnarily, perlps, for th? :rea slou that it brings them into. profit, and partly because of a belief that by so doing' the nmilk gi-ing functionis Etinmiated, or rather, the 'tendilency to turn .untrimnent into, body 'fat Ja c.ounteractcd. It is conceded that this practice :ay somIewhat retard growth, 'but does not necessarily prevent:full normal development. On thl other hand, a goodl many breeders .of dairy ?cattle think -it a better plan to defer freEhllening until the heifer is 2'to 3'years'old. 'They profess to believe that in tiis way they.secure a more rugged constitntion, and w'ith that greater B aceity for production. :They, however, try .to very careful not to have the heifer put on an ,excess ef fat. at any time fromt b'irth up ...

E00T OF f00~~iiicE A contributor to "'Ioard's Dairyman," Winm; Cleaver, of Penns--ivania, expresses the opinion that too much argument is lused on the wide of charging the cow time cost price of ·the feed. The ,primary ob jeet of the:.~armer he. submits,.is to secure the largest possbi.e returns from.the money he hais invested. :If, by selling the cropj at the mnarilet price, he will receive more money for it than he can get from it by. feeding :to ,cows (after allowing for the: ma~niiri? value, &c.) "hen *the logical way to-dispose of the crop wvould be by 'selling it. When ·the production cost .is oharged, the keepi'ng of cows is mrndte the primary object, and. all'other branrhles of fanrming are carried, on for the purpose of .further increasing the importance of the cow. Of course, the farrmer knows-,how much he made from h.is cows and how much for hisycar's work,.but he.doc: nOt.knowi hoow much morie he might have made had he sold the crop instead of feeding it.
