They can be made docile and mild in their dispositions, 01 timid and wild, just in accordance with tho troatmont they receive from the herder and milker ; and it is a well established faet that a cour will transmit her dispobition, in great dcgreo, to her progeucy. A rough, quick-tempered p6rbou, sliould nevor be employed as a inilker ; and ono who will, on any protense whatevor, kick, or strike a cow, should bo ├╝ckod in turn, from Iho barn-yard into the street, and never bo allo wed to return, Guntleness will inoreus (he quantity ot' milk, as has been shown by a change of a (ruel and iraseiblo milkor to one who practicod kind and gentle treatment. It is an injury to cows to be drivon faster than un eusy walk, to or from their pogtni'os.
