FEfiCE FO? SHEEP PAST?RtS
.All the Extra Cars and Feed Given tc
the Farm Flock Generally Yields
(By E. T.. SHAW.)
The lots and pastures upon a sheep
farm require considerable fencing
Lack of adequate fences has been ono
factor in the decline of the sheep in
dustry in many localities. A woven
wire fence is the cheapest and most
satisfaz ; :;ry. all thiess considered. If
?it must be dog-proof the meshes
should be close enough together to
prevent the dogs passing through, and
it should be at least five feet high,
which is a desirable height for all out
hir.ged Panels for Temporary Lamb
sids fences. Care should be taken in
putting up the fence to see that the
wire is close enough to the ground to
prevent dogs from crawling under it.
For temporary fences there are a
number manufactured from '?2 to 42
inches ?>?2;h. A 36-inch fence is very
satisfactory, and is used extensively.
An advantage ol' wire fencing is that
neither sheep nor dogs will jump it so
rea-.lily. Barbed wiro is undesirable,
except at elie top, because the sheep
tear out t.h?ir woo! upon the barbs.
Kurdios are a great aid in handling

sheep are to he confined to a portion
of the Held. This is desirable in that
it prevents tlie sheen picking out the
choicest pasture first and leaving tho
poorest for the last when, as a matter
cf fact under fattening conditions, the
best should be available.
Fencing off part of the field in this
way also rnok^1; more frequent the

"pen?. Light' hurdles that can be
handled readily should have a place
upon every sheep farm. They are
well worth their cost. Every sheep
owner should be prepared to make
pens for his sheep on short notice.
After lambing, some ewes refuse to
own their offspring. If left loose the j
lamb wanders about, becomes lost
among the flock, and loses its char
acteristic smell by which the ewe
Tecognizes it. She may then refuse to
claim it. and the trouble begins. By
having some panels or hurdles at
hand the ewe- and lamb may be
quickly placed by themselves and a
close watch can be kept upon them
to see that all is well. Thc- length of
time they should be k^pt in this

long it takes the ewe to become
reconciled to her lamb. If the ewe ?
persists in butting the lamb away, she !

Down the steps of the Philbig home
came Philbig himself, tall, immaculate

white marble, shot into the air just
as though it had been an ordinary, un

felt. His fall having scattered the
marbles, Philbig was unable to deter

limped on his way with smothered
rage within his breast.
"Hello, old man!" said Eillicks at
the station and slapped Philbig on the
In a quieter condition of mind Phil
big would have let Billicks knock him
down and would have pretended to like
it, for Philbig was angling fer a huge
ord^r from Dillick's firm, and had al
ready planned what to do with the
profit. But ju.-:t new his nerves were
ou edge. So he whirled away angrily
from the too-familiar hand. "Good
