Points in Choosing Dairy Cows. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 10 March 1903

Points in -}li(-o.siii^ D.iiry Cinvs. In an informal talk 011 this sub ject at a recent field meeting of the Connecticut Dairymen's Associa tion, Mr. J. B. Walker, who has had many years' successful experience as a dairyman, reports the American ' Agriculturalist,' said that there were some points of a cow to look at regai-dless of her personal appearance. TheMnilk veins were important. Small veins and a small milk well indicated poor milkers, while large, tortuous veins and a large well indicate a good ' flow of milk. The hide should be thin and mellow, bnt some good cows have rather a thick hide. The escutcheon is not of so much import ance. Some good cows have poor escutcheons, and vice versa. She should have a long, thin fail, and a thin shoulder. She should have a 'cowy' head, eyes wide apart, head long and thin, with a thin neck. A good fore udder is the sign of a good cow. Many cows, particularly of the Jersey breed, have poor udders. The udder should not be fleshy. The ap ?p...

Husband ami Wile. Hkrh is a curious little story (writes a correspondent of the ' Birmingham Echo'), which I relate for two reasons — first, because it is true, secondly because it mav serve as a timelv warn ing now that tho dark evenings are upon us. A gentleman, but lately married, went out to post a letter about. 7 o'clock and as the lamps had not been lit in the suburban road in which he dwelt, he could only dimly see his way. A short distance up the road he met, as he thought, his wife, who had been out to tea ; and as he went past he just whispered : ' All right, my dear. I shall be with you in a minute.' Immediately after he had said these words he saw the lady turn a startled look upon him, and then hurry away ; and the horrible idea occurred to him that it was not his wife after all, and that in the darkuess i he made a mistake. He decided to say nothing about the matter, and quickly disappeared. When lie returned home he. found his wife waiting lor him, and she at once gre...

Matters Political. Complaint comes from the Mfioleay River district that- tlie harbour works at the entrance to that river are still iu abeyance, notwithstanding frequent Government promises that tlie works were to bo resumed'. It appeai-s that tlie men employed were allowed to go to their Christmas holidays ' without any intimation that the harbour im provements would be discontinued, and, although the works were then stopped, it was only a few days ago they were paid for the work performed by them before the holidays. Fre quent notices of the intended early re commencement of the works caused many of the men to stay, about, in idleness on the strength of , .employ?, ment, when another start was made) rather than wander through the coun try 011 what appeared to most of them to be a forlorn hope of obtaining re munerative employment.
