ViirlctlcK of Sheep nmi Value •*
The bleating of lambs iy once mure
hoard in the land, says a writer in Lon
don Sketch, nnd the interesting crea
tures may be Been disporting themselves

wending their way through rural lanes.
Wherever found, they make a picture
of unstudied grace. No posing for the
camera here —just a wild abandonment
to a sense of enjoyment as they bask in
the sunshine. Tin- present season has
bet ti a favorable one; for tho lambs tho
wind has been tempered indeed, and,
although the turnips are small and

scarce, the grass lands have afforded
continual pasture. A visit to the sheep
fold will pot ap quite a cloud of birds
— finches, sparrows, starlings and jack
daws, who come to devour the scattered
I have photographed nearly every
breed of sheep in these islands, includ
ing the wild species found at the zoo
logical gardens, the Welsh mountain
and Irish RoßCommon in their native
pastures, and the. tiny Shetlands, and
in every case the lambs, when alarmed,
rush to their dams for comfort before
taking flight, thus exhibiting the in
stincts of their remote ancestors, who,
being comparatively defenseless, had
to take to the tipper ranges of moun
tains and trust to their fleetness of L ot
for safety, their constant exposure to
a low temperature eventually inducing
the growth of a warm, woolly covering.
In due time they were introduced to
this country, and ever since the dawn
of history Britain has been celebrated
for its wool The Romans very highly
esteemed it, and garments made from
Briti.-h wool were worn by their no
bility. Indeed i+ is asserted by some
that our immense foreign trade com
menced with tho export vf wool to the
continent. Be that as it may, it is an
undoubted fact that sheep remain to
day the backbone of agriculture. First,
there is the meat. Early lambs always
command a good price, as also do good
(heaves, wethers and ewes. Then the
wool—although its prico and quality
vary from the lustrous and valuable
fleeces obtained from the long wooled
Lincolns to the coarse but useful varie
ty obtained from the Scotch highlands
, and mountains cf Cumberland —brings
in a considerable sum. Then, too, sheep
arc known, in the picturesque language
of Spain, as the animals with golden
feet, because wherever they have been
folded over the land enormous crops are
sure to grow, and, lastly, there is the
breeding of pedigree sheep, which ha 3
developed enormously in recent times,
so that prices which would have seemed
fabulous to our forefathers have been
obtained for a single sheep, the liigh
water mark being reached last year,
when a Lincoln ram, owned by Mr.
Dudding of Grimsby, was sold fcr 1,000
guineas. Others have been sold for 200
guineas and upward, many of them for
export, British stock having won a
HaitsiiiK Youuk Pigs.
If the young pigs lie in the nest
much of th« time, they will become fat
ami sleek, and the feeder may imagine
he is accomplishing excellent results.
But before long it will be noticed that
tiny seem to breathe hard, breathing
by short, panting breaths. In advanced
Btagea they will turn green or black on
Thia trouble is known as thumps,
and is caused by the pig getting fat
around the heart.
Exercise ia the preventive and cure.
The pig must be kept stirring and not
allowed to lie around in this way.

Get in the pen and stir them out of
their nest and force them to run about;
but, best of all, turn them out in a lot

Care of Brooders.
As soon as the chicks are out of the
brooders and you are through using
them for the season clean them up and
get them into ■winter quarters out of
the way. Don't put the brooder away
dirty and think you will clean it up in
the spring before you are ready for it.
If you do, you won't have a brooder fit
to use when you are ready for it.
When you are through using it for
the season, scrape it out thoroughly
and wash it inside and out with good
hot soapsuds to which a little kerosene
has been added; use a scrubbing brush
and get it clean. Then go over it again
with clean, hot, soapy water and finish
off with a cloth, wiping the boards dry.
Wash the hover felts if they are dirty
and make the whole clean. If it is a
hot air brooder, remove the heater and
clean out the hot air chamber. You
will be surprised to see what a lot of
filth has found its way in there. Turn
the brooder upside down and brush the
sheet iron free of soot. To keep it from
rusting apply a thin cgat of raw linseed
oil to the iron. Leave the brooder open
in the sun, and let it thoroughly dry
before you put it away. Have all the
parts in place and everything where
you can lay your bands on it when
wanted. Clean up the lamp, aud do
not put it away with oil in it. Wrap it
up in newspaper to keep it free from
dust. If it is a tin lamp, scrape the
bhstered paint out of the water pan,
make it clean aud dry. and then give
the pan a fresh coat of some good wa
ter proof paint; in a week put on a sec
ond coat. If you only attend to these
little things as you should, you will
have a good, clean brooder to use when
needed, and you will also save money.

When I lived at Newport, It. 1., from
ISG4 to 1878, says Colonel T. W. II ig
ginson, in The Atlantic, there was a
constant procession of foreign visitors,
varying in interest and often quite
wanting in it. I remember one eminent
literary man who, in spite of all cau
tions to the contrary, appeared at a
rather fashionable day reception in
what would now be called a golf suit,
of the loudest possible plaid, like that
of the Scotch cousin in Punch who
comes down thus dressed for church
to the terror of his genteel cousins. In
this case the viator also wore a spy
glass of great size, hung round his
neck, all through the entertainment.
Another highly connected English
man, attending uu evening reception
given expressly for him, came into the
parlor with his bat and umbrella in his
hand, declining to be parted from
them through the whole evening,
which suggested to a clever Newport
lady the story of the showman who
exhibited a picture of Daniel in the
lions' den and pointed out that Daniel
was to be distinguished from the lions
by having a blue cotton umbrella un
der his arm. In this case, the lady re
marked that the conditions were re
versed, since it was the lion that car
ried the umbrella.
Just when the day became divided
Into hours is not known, nor is the
process explained. The Greeks and
Romans measured time by the water
glass and the sun dial .. The hourglass,
filled with saud, was the outgrowth of
these vessels, from which the water
dripped through tiny openings.
If a pair of herrings could be left to
breed and multiply undisturbed for a
period of 20 years, they would yield an
amoirat of lish equal in bulk to the
globe on which we live.

The Latest X Ray Invention
Is the Endoscope, which is for the pur
pose of examining the interior of the
stomach. It is claimed, that with this
instrument, the treatment of stomach
troubles will be revolutionized, as it lo
cates the cause of disease. With due
respect to science, however, would state
that the causes of stomach troubles have
been known for the past fifty years,
and likewise their cure, which is Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, a medicine that
has many imitators, but no equals. It
cures dyspepsia, indigestion, biliousness,
constipation, nervousness, insomnia. It
also prevents malaria, fever and ague,
and keeps the bowels regular. When
not feeling right, take a dose. It is the
standard medicine of the American
people. Look for Private Revenue
