u.od a pioiit for 1l.e money l::ie-tcd
as any other aiiin.al. and ile y come in
handy to keep down weeds and briers.
A lew years ago I had a field that was
';vm ii rp in greenbri'-rs and vines so
thai it was almost Impossible to get
tk'ough it. I hacked th" iue down
and when they got dry s. t '.ire to them.
I s. t lire to every ttre nhrier patch that
would burn, and turned the sheep Into
ll;e field. The dieep kept every young
gr eiibthr sprout nipp' d close to 111"
ground. I made It a rule to set every
patch nitre as seen as it was dry
( notieeh to burn, and nt the end of thn e
v ars the dieep had the field so well
hilhd out that it was ready for the
plow. It would have been almost Im
possible to kill the briers by grubbing,
is they continue to sprout rs long lis
i root is left in the ground. The sheep
ieilhd them by keeping them so closely
nipped to the ground that they could
have no show at all. There are many
weuls and brush ihat can be killed in
the same way and thus be turned into
wool and mutton. Many do not keen
sheep on account of the difficulty of
keeping them healthy. The shcp
seems to be heir to mere troubles
from parasites than any other animal.
There Is the sheep tick, the sheep louse,
the gad flay and a number of different
kinds of worms that trouble the sheep.
It is thought by many that the sheep
tick will not stay on a fat sheep, but
tie reason for this is the fact that a
sheep cannot stay fat and bo trembled
with ticks. Whenever any consider
able number of tides attack a fat
fhrep it begins to Ice flesh, so the
poorer the sheep is the more ticks tlire
are likely to be found. While the
sheep louse Is common it is as bad if
not vers" than the tick. The sheep
louse is very small and is about the
same color as the sheep's skin, so it is
difficult to detect them. If a sheep
is seen biting his sides, first one side
and then the other, and pulling out
wool from his sides with his teeth.
the chances are that he is troubled
with lice. I always look for lice when
I see wool in a sheep's mouth or see
it lilting its sides. A very good remedy
for both lice and ticks is to give the
sheep sulphur in their food two or
1hree times a week. Neither lice nor
ticks will stay with sheep fed sulphur
regularly. The gad fly lays its eggs in
the sheep's nostrils during the months
of May and June. Those hatch nnl
develop into the grub that troubles
the sheep and is known as grub in the
head. If sheep have a dark place to
resort to during the heat of tho day
they can getaway frem this trcti
to some extent. Smear!r.g tar on the
feed trough Is also a valuable aid to
the sheep in combating those flies, as
the scent of the tar on the sheep's nose
will to a considerable extort keep the
flies away. There are quite a number
of intestinal worms that infest sheep;
the only remedy for these is some
good worm powders or some, other
remedy that will destroy the "worms.
Often a change of locality for sheep ii
the best thing that can be dor.e for
them; if a large number of sheep are
confined on the same pasture the field
will beome infested with sheep para
sites and become unfit for sheep pas
ture until the sheep have been kept
off of it for a considerable time. A
few sheep kept on a farm usually
prove more profitable than a large
number. Sheep raisers often make the
mistake of attempting to keen too
many sheep. They get diseased and
do not yield the great profit expected
of them. The owner is likely to get dis
couraged, and the next thing we hear
from him, his entire flock is sold and
lie invests in something else, persuaded
that there is nothing in raising sheep.
How to Slart a Vineyard.
The business of planting and train
ing a vineyard may be r.earlv tlot'O
years old, so old that it is quhe diffi
cult to say anything new upon it.
Gcnernlly speaking, we have as good
soil and climate as elsewhere. The
train points to consider are desirable
location, suitable varr-ty and proper
training nr.d cultivnl ion. For location

end that sun and air can serve tliei:

The raising of turkeys is easy and
very profitable. A few people however
carry the idea that they are so delicate
that It rcnulros an expert in the busi
ness to successfully rear them. This
is not our experience, and there is
scarcely a farmer in any locality but
what lias a lioek of turkeys ready
every fall for the winter markets,
which is ocemiH'ing evidence tiiat tur
keys are easily raised. It Is very im
portant that good breeding stock should
lie selected, males not akin to females.
Do not keep more than cue torn with
twelve to fifteen hens. Turkeys should
have plenty of room, if possible the
full range of the farm. When allowed
full liberty, they require but little feed
during the summer months, as they
reim the fields in search cf hugs, waste
grain, etc. Turkeys cannot be overfed
and are not considered heavy eaters.
During the cchl winter mcntlis i; is

Turkeys usually lay fifteen cr dxtcen
eggs to the litter and will lay five or
six litters in a season, provided tho
eggs are taken from the nest each
time. Many keep their turkey hens
hiking in this manner, setting the eggs
under chicken hens. When tho laying
season begins the hens sometimes hido
their nests, usually in straw stalks,
fence corners, brush heaps, etc. It
requires twenty-eight days of incuba
tion to bring out young turkeys. Thoy
should be fed nothing for about twenty-four
hours. Place them in unclean,
roomy coop, feed for the first' few
wet lis with bread soaked in milk. Cot
tage cheese in connection whh the
bread is excellent. Oatmeal and
cooked rice are also considered good.
Food for young turkeys should be very
slightly salted. After two or throe
weeks they must be loft to run at large
and fed on wheat sereonimis, corn
meal, etc., and they will readily learn
'o practically hunt their own living.
Keep young turkeys, if possible, in
coops during the night and until the
dew is off the grass in the morLLi.
