I seeDiir ?mitual friend, Col. Aiken,
gives in th,e May number o'f ^he Bu
ral 'Carolinian, his plan for castrating
la/nbs, and calls for criticisms j .to
which I will respond, as the plan is
liable to very grave objections, as he
exposes his lambs twice to great dan
ger, first, by waiting until the testi
cles are well developed, which in
creases the ?risk greatly, and then
from the lateness of the season the
flies are sure to blow them, unless
some preventive is applied ?v?ry dny
until they are well. But these diffi
culties may ?be aveided by perform
ing .the operation at the proper age,
say from three to ten days old, the
earlier the better, then there is very
little risk, ahd,as they usually come
in the winter, there are no flies to
blow them. There is no ^particular
skill necessary, the great matter is
to be. expeditious. We avoid doing
anything that will put blood on a
sheep in the summer or warm weath
er, for the blow-Ay has a peculiar
fondness for the blood c*f sheep, and
will attack them on every occasion.
Should it become nee ssary, however,
at any time during the warm season
to perform this, or any other opera
tion on a sheep, constant attention
with turpentine will keep off the

? We usually-cut off the tails of our
lambs as early as practicable, but
don't like to perform both the opera
tions at the same time, as it is too
greata fax orf the vitality of the
lamb, to do all at once. For cutting
off the tails .1 use a small pair of
hedge shears, the kind that only cuts
from one side, the other side furnish
ing a guage for the length of the part
left, pressing the skin towards body
before you close the shears, when the
tail is severed at a single stroke.

According to the statement of the rates of the different Life Insurance
Companies of ti rat class standing in the -UnitedStat^, mad! by "The Uni:

published in the Edgefield Advertiser, it appears that the Mutual Rates
of the Brooklyn are Cheaper than those 'Of any named Company.

The greatly advantageous feature of the Brooklyntin endorsing the Sur
render Values upon?its Policies, 'in Dollars and Cents, far Jen consecutive
years, has met jv i h -unqualified praise from the most celebrated American
Actuaries, as nl.-o from the Press, E?:st, North and South.
The Hon. Elizur Wright, who is iidjuitted to be thc greatest Insurance
Mathematician and Actuary in America, congratulating The Brooklyn
upon this new and distinctive feature, says, among other things, " I am.
particularly pleased by. your departure in the right direction from the
ordinary method of Computing the Surrender Values." "One ot? the great
est drawbacks to the popularity of Life'Insurance, has been the disap
pointment and dissatisfaction of retiring Policy holders, at the smallness
of thc surrender value paid," &c. "All this would have been prevented
by a distinct statement on thc Ibl'icy,'rn'advance, of Ike sum to bc paid."
This statement, it wiU be eeeji, The Brooklyn makes in dollars and
cents, SQ that there (can be ne] mistake! . ...'.' \ i .
. Read tfliat imitfrerii Papers Say of f?is f??t?re ?
The Sentinel, (Haleigh, 'North Carolina,) Jan. 27, 1869;-" This great
feature vf cash surrender .values is An impbovemont that signalizes the era
in_ Life Insurance." ? ' .
Sun, (Columbus, Georgia.)-"There is no better Company in the land;
a comparison with othor corporations of asimilar character, will convince
al?ol' the superior safely in taking risks.with The Brooklyn Life."
1 ispatch, (St. Louis, Mo..,) Jan. 7, 1369.-"A Policy io The Brooklyn
Life is thus worth so much.tVi ready money.. This-is the only Life. Com
pavy in the country that 1ms carried this excellent feature (uf endorsing
the cash surrender values in dollars and cents.) into its business..'' "Pol
icy holders being 'doubly assured, the system cannot fail to become very
popular." ' ? .
It will be seen shat we assert nothing in the above advertisement, but
make a sim?le statement,of the superior advantages of 17tcfBrooklyn, as it
appears from disinterested parties.
