IS BREED SUPERIOR TO FEED?
More Than Blood or Pedigree Essential
in High-Class Animals.
There must ahva)6 be a starting
point. A foundation must be laid be
fore we caii build. It is surprising
how a biological theory like that of
evolution, be it right or wrong, gives
a bias to a man's mind and tones all
his thoughts and opinions. It is t-ccn
to crop out in the now (juitc prevalent
belief that breed is superior to feed in
the development of our best races of
cattle. It is because of this belief or
opinion that c (-ec such enormous
sums of money paid for immature or
even unborn animals ih utcro sim
ply became of their parentage. It is
not suflicieut to note the fact that the
hereditary descent of good qualities
directly is a ery rare circum&taucc,
and that remarkable animals as a rule
are the progeny of very ordinary ones,
and ice cri-a. There is no hereditary
aristocracy of excellence in man or in
animals. (Ileal men rarely lm c sons
that arc conspicuous for their father's
qualities; on the contrary, (lie sons of
noted men are generally remarkable
for tlw; ab-ence of anj extraordinary
opacity, ami the continuance l a
family icputatiou is so rare as to be
phenomenal. On the other hand, all
the great men of hiMory of modern
limes hate emerged from obscurity,
nml their p-irentage has only been re
markable lor the act ident of producing
them. It is the same uith animals.
There aie thoiiMiudx of inxlallLCS
niMiinsl a wry few exceptions. When
the horse Dexter appeared like a sud
leu indoor 110 one knew hi- history,
and one was made for him. It was
the t-amo ulth the stallion Smuggler,
I and io have t to hear of any of Iii
i progeny thai have a record. 1 1 i- t lie
same with cattle. The cow Alphea has
no parentage of remarkable runnl,
1 and although some of her blood ha
been unu-ually producihe, it i not
iiinic so than other .leri-cy cons of
other families, or of 110 family at all
and some of the-e hac Mirpuscd her
j iccord. The cow Dmlic-s, the lirst ol
Unit noted tribe of Short-horn?, pio
iluccd 21 pound? of butter in a neck,
but later Duchisis liaxc required the
help of nuro to rear their calves,

It is thilxuith the cabbage and turnip,
the cauliflower and tho beet, which, bv
breed, were sea-shore plants, of which
the sea locket Is 11 type, or the char
lock or wild mustard of our poorer
tlelds. The breed is still the useless

survive by its own force and charac

Its llrst ctnte and breeds back re
verts to its original type. Tho best
variety of turnip abandoned to its
own resources goes hack to charlock,
its original, in a few jcars. By poor
cultivation its return Is slower and
more gradual, but not less certain.

1 lent folly that breed is superior to
feed, procures a Duke and Duchess
or a Keel IJosc or n Princess, and
thinks he will liaxc a herd. He treats
these highly fed and wcll-carcd-for
cattle as ho treats his scrubs. They
retrograde fast, and the calves, pinched
and neglected if they lie become
even worse than the scrub stock. If
this man pcrsUts a few years no scm
blance of the breed remains; it'isnll
starred out, and only a wreck remains
of it. The breed i there. It is tho
blood which has been lost by want of
nourishment, and for the want of feed
the breed is no longer what it was. A
wiser man takes the wreck and re
verses the method. He feeds and
cherishes tho spark of life left in tho
J I blood, and in tlmo restores what has
been lost, nndjiic breed is recovered
again. If feed and care were not su-
potior to breed these- pure-bred ani-
1 mals would hold their own in spite of
starvation aud hardship. If breed is
i v superior to feed there would bo no cu-

condition of the laud pike or the rail-
splitter by neglect, and its miseries
perpetuated by breeding down.
This heresy is akin to a system of
morality or religion which removes all
incentives to a virtuous life. If our
stock is predestined by its birth or
breed to maintain its high character,
the incentive to generous feeding and
good care is removed. If one lias the
breed he may neglect the feed. But
the very reverse is more nearly true.
If it were not, the majority of farmers
would be in a most hopeless state. If
they had no hope that they could bet
ter their stock by better feeding, by
better lodging, by more gentle train
ing and careful handling, they would
have no opportunit- of improving
them at the start, aud, like a man who
believes himself to be lost, would make
no cflort to save themselves. Few far
mers or graziers can hope to possess
herds of pure-bred cattle. But every
one can procure tho mtans of infusing
the best blood in his herd. If he is led
to believe that breed is the one thing
needful, and that he cannot breed but
from pure-bred animals, he will stay
as he is aud do the best he can. If, on
the contrary, ho is made to see that
feed is the main tiling to be secured
and breed the next, he is at once in
duced to improve his stock, first by
better care and feeding, and then by
the addition of pure blood, which will
give him material upon which feeding
can be made to produce its bct re
sults, aud he will be very apt in the
pursuit of his own interests to begin
to breed up his herd without delay.
And tho farmer who has no present
possibility of doing any more will at
once begin to improve his herd from
within, hopeful of at least some meas
ure of success by better feeding.

Mr. II. A. Ilaigh gives the following
wholesome adicc on mortgages to
firmer iu thclnienccw Agricullnritl :
"Morlgagcs arc necessary and ben
eficial in t'nilized society, but there arc
unpleasant features about them. They
often enable a man to accomplish what
he could not otherwise do, and they
often involve a man who would have
been otherwise successful. They often
enable a man to get out of trouble
which he could not otherwise avoid,
and they perhaps equally often mako
miserable a life which would have oth
crwie been happy. It is easy to get
them 011 the farm, but it is not always
so easy to get them off. Farm mort
gages are about the bent investment
that capital can find. Investors gen
erally like thou. They partake of the
nature, permanence, aud other sub
stantial qualities of real property, but
arc relieved from many burdens im
posed upon land.
"Do not morlgago the farm unless
it seems absolutely necessary. But, as
a general rule is less aluablc than a
particular one, it may bo well to spec
ify by adding: Do not mortgage to
build a line hou-e. By so doing you
will have to pay money for an invest
ment which docs not bring money.
Do not mortgago the farm to buy
more land. Where there is absolute
certainty that more can be made out
of tho land than the cost of tho mort
gage, this rule might not applv. But
absolute certainty is rare; mistaken
calculation is common. Do not mort
gage the farm unless you arc sure of
the continued fertility of the soil
Many pen-ons borrow with an expec
tation of repayment based on an ex
perience of the land's virginity only,
which, on failing, may leave the land
less productive, and the means of re
payment thus be removed. Iu this
way trouble begins which may result
in mo loss ot tha larm. Keep very
clear of mortgages."
The poison ivy, also called poison
oak, aud in somo localities known as
marcury, is often tho eauso of great
distress. Tho vine is abundant all
over the country, ouc form being low,
running aloug banks aud rambling
over stone walls. Another form
climbs tho highest trees, clinging to
the bark by its many rootlets. It is
often confounded with the Virginia
creeper; indeed, we have known it to
be planted as an ornamental vine, hav
ing been taken for that. Tho two arc
readily told apart, tho Virginia creep
er having its dark green, shiny leaves
five-parted, while tho light-green leaves
of tho poison Ivy arc three-parted.
Tho poison ivy is so abundant that
were all equally susceptible to its in
fluence wc should hear much more of
its cllccts than wo do at present. With
many the poisou produces only a
slight eruption on tho skin and in
tense uciiing. utlicrs are more seri
ously aflcctcd, aud the face swells up
to such au extent that the features are
hardly visible. Nearly every locality
has its popular remedies for the poi
son, aud new ones arc frequently pro
posed. As a general thing, most cases
arc relieved by keeping tho bowels
open by the uso of salts, and washing
tho eruptions with a strong solution
of sugar of lead. The latest remedy,
which is now going the rounds, is to
bathe the sllcctcd parts withliino wa
ter, applied as hot as it can be borne.
This is simple, the remedy is usually
at hand, and it is worth trying, as
other alkaline washes have been found
useful. Xo harm can result. Ameri
D. L. Gaus, of Stark county, Ohio,
who says ho has been 11 wool-grower
for thirty-five years, with flocks vary
ing from 300 to 500 head, says he
knows well that grubs cau bo dis
lodged from the sheep's nose, and tells
iu the Pittsburg Stockman just how
ho docs it, as follows :
"I procure a liberal supply of tobac
co stems, aud make a very strong tea
from them. I have two holes cut in
tho end of a sheep rack, ono to suit
tho height of small and the other that
of largo sheep. All things being
ready, one man catches tho sheep and
holds its nose firmly in the hole in the
rack, while another takes a four-ounce
syringe, draws it full of tho tobacco
tea, and iujects with force half of it
full up cadi nostril. The noso of tho
sheep, at the time of injection, should
be held down to avoid the tea being
thrown into the larnyx and and lungs
or swallowed. The sheep when let go
will run away, snorting and sneezing,
and suffer no apparent inconvenience
from tho operation. Two active men
will thus treat SOO or 400 sheep in a
day. This should be attended to in
the month of October, when the grub
is small and tender, and the removal
iscuiitesuro for that year. .When I
have ray flocks treated as above I lose
few, if any, sheep; when .omitted, I
suffer the consequences. Last yos
my flocks were neglected and not
treated with the tobacco, sad I lost a
number of sheep from grub. The year
