tried the experiment of feeding sweet skim milk to pigs. I do not 
claim that those are the conditions always attending the feeding of 
sweet skim milk that way, only; I have stated what we did. We 
took a Holstein cow, that we happened to have, and we took a 
Jersey cow that a neighbor had, and made the experiment as I told 
you. I do not relyon the ohemiatto tell me whntkind ofaoow she 
was, nor upon the churn, but I rely upon both. What we have found 
does not prove that Holstein cows are better tln Jerseys; because 
I might pick out one man here who is a quarter of a man, that does 
not prove that all men are not whole men. But here is a Holstein 
cow that gives these results, and here is a Jersey that given those 
results under the same conditions. Now, upon those factors let 
us generalize and get what benefit we dan. 
THE DIGNITY OF BUTTER- MAKING, FROM A WOMAN'S 
STANDPOINT. 
By Kis FPAng MoaLmY, Bamboo, Wis. 
Dignity, says Webster, is true honor, nobleness or elevation of 
mind, etc. That labor, physical toil, intellectual exertion, labor 
which requires hard work for its accomplishent,- that such labor 
for the attainment of a worthy object is something elevating and 
dignified, if carried on to success, is a plain American sentiment, 
the truth of which is verified in the fact that the beat and most 
truly successful men and women of our land have exerted 
themaelves physically as well " mentally and with a decided afoot. 
We have been endowed with the ability to perform both mental 
and manual work. The two belong together, should not he sepa- 
rated, and when webalanced lead onward to oce   Knowledge 
back of labor, whatever be the real work, is what gives dignity to 
the work. This knowledge is and must of necessity be ded 
in various ways and from various sources. Some is learned byper- 
sonal observation and experience, and much from the words and 
written works of others; hence by improving our opportunities we 
may store away in the memory much useful information. 
"Yet, mortal, pause! within thy mind is laid 
Wealth gathered long and slowly; thoughts divine 
Heasp that fhll thsure house; and thou hut made 
The gems of many a spirit's ocean thin."
