Perhaps the most important step in
pocurliiff and iiiniittuimiir a good flocfc
of sheep is the securing of males that
are the perfect tpc of what you wish
your floek to bel As to what a male
should be. I would f-av first:' Let them
bo thoroughbred. No grade buck
should ever be ueed when iherc is a
doire to improve or even keep up the
quality of the Hock. The chances arc
against the transmission of hi, valua
ble qualities; it is probable he will
transmit undesirable qualities of his
ancestors that are concealed iu him. A
thoroughbred male can be relied on to
reproduce himself in his oflVpriiur, but
such ih not the cum with a grade, how
ever perfect he may be iu iorm. Sec
ond, 1 would t-ay. let him be a good
specimen of the breed, whatever that
breed may be. Among the best of
flocks there will be a difference. While
all may be good, home may be better,
and others uest. 1 would say, get the
best at any price iu selecting males.
Be sure he has an eminent degree of
all the essential points of the breed in
eize, make, characteristics of wool, etc.
Again, let him be sound in constitu
tion and limb. It is found that defects
and disease are more easily communi
cated to oflspringb than more desirable
qualities. Hence, everything of this
kind fchould be avoided" with bcrupu
lous care. The character of the female
is of less importance. True if a man
has a flock of thoroughbred ewes to
begin with, all the better, his work is
half done; but if he has a flock of
grades or scrubs, he need not go to the
expense of buying a full-blooded stock
to build up a flock with. With proper
care in the selection of a buck, a flock
can soon be built up to a high point of
excellence with only common ewes to
start with. With the facilities now
offered for securing choice bucks, there
is no excuse for the man who contin
ues to propagate the scrub stock of
the country. Let none but first-class
males be used, and soon all our flocks
will become first-class flocks.
The report that the epizootic h.16
broken out inoii the fowls in South
ern New Yoikaml New Jersey and
Northern I'eniilvania i foundto.be
true. The dienc runs its course very
swiftly. The fowls are taken with

and bearing all the yintoin of the
epizootic. Thee liK 'recur with de
creasing intervals and increain vi

endues in a few hours.. As soon as the
chickens are r.1 tacked they hide in

and, it is har&' d, niaikctcd iu Louis

visited the Neiv Yoik markets says
many drced fowls had discolored ami
congested he.ids and neck, with harsh
ami unnatural appearance, of skin.
