Wool la a staple of infinite variety. No
two sheep, even of tha same breed aad
pasturing on the same gram land, will
yield fleeces that will bring exactly the
So with breeds of sheep and their Dat
ura! panturage. A hundred sheep are
transported from Saxony to Yorkshire,
England. In a few years' time the fine
merino wool of the Saxon sheep will
either be considerably coarser in quality
or lighter in w ighU
Experience in sheep breeding has
taught the wool growers of the world
that certain localities are bent suited for
certain breeds of sheep. It does not fol
low that any of these breeds should be
of a previously known variety. The
great flocks of Australia are the result of
many croaaos between the different va
rieties of English and Saxony sheep.
The locality of the sheep run has much
to do with the value of the fleece. In
England, where the pasture is like a
garden lawn and whore the shepherd has
not too many sheep to attend to, the
fleece is comparatively free from dirt or
artificial impurities. On the other hand,
fleeces coming from the Argentine Re
publio are noted for the number of burrs
knotted in them. This makes a serious
difference in the price paid for the wool.
Sheep were first brought to the United
States in 1600. Exactly 200 years after
ward the first important consignment of
merino sheep arrived here. It numbered
1,000. Since then the merino and Eng
lish strains have been blended in all the
locks in this country.
In some respects the climate of the
astern half of the United States is un
fitted for rearing sheep in greatest per
fection. The extremes of heat and cold
are too great. In moist, equabl cli
mates sheep never drink water, but
quench their thirst with succulent grass.
Lambs are shorn for the first lime
when they are eight months old. This
bearing is called the "first clip," and
commands a liigher price relatively than
any subsequent. The weight of a first
clip fleece is not usually more than three
pounds, and often less than this weight.
England seems to be the only densely
populated country in the world where
sheep farming is carried on successfully
The great sheep runs of Australia have
only their owners and shepherds near
them. So also in the Argentine Repub
lic, and in Texas the inhabitants near
sheep pasturages ore much fewer than
in other parts of these countries.
lo some extent sneep raising appears
to have been almost a pioneer exploit in
this country. In 18CS there were 38,000,'
000 sheep east of the Mississippi river.
In 1888 the number was reduced to 13,
000,000. Even these 13,000,000 do not
show a fair average, for an undue pro
portion of them are in the twenty-eight
counties of Ohio which form a natural
For one reason or other, other states
between the Atlantic and the Mississippi
river have given up largely the raising
of sheep. In the prosperous farming
state of Iowa dairy farming has been
found more profitable. Illinois raises
dairy products, too, as well as corn and
wheat on former sheep pasture lands.
At tho present time the great wool grow
ing states, excepting Ohio, are in order
as follows: California, Texas, New Mexi
co territory and Oregon. Three of these
are practically frontier states; the fourth,
California, in its climate resembles Aus
tralia. According to the report of the agri
cultural department the total number of
sheep in the United States in 1383 was
43,544,735. These yielded a total wool
clip of fl01,G76,121 pounds. The total
quantity of unmanufactured wool im
ported into this country in 198? was 114,
404,173 pounds. Of this quantity about
81,000,000 pounds were for the manu
facture of carpcM.
Under the tarilT of 1993 imported wools
are divided into three classes. These are
combing wools, clothing wools and car
pet wools. The first two classes are sub
ject to a duty of ten cents a pound if
thirty cents or loss in value. If they are
more than thirty cents a pound in value
the duty is twelve cents a pound. Car
pet wools pay a duty of two and a half
cents a pound if the value is twelve cents
or less a pound, and five cents a ponnd
if the value is more than t waive rents.
These duties represent respectively ad
valorem 43.23, 54.78 and 24.98 per cent
It Is quite apparent, therefore, that the
fanner in this country is abundantly pro
tected so much so, in fact, that practi
cally no wool is exported out of the
On the other hand, it would not follow,
if wool was protected more highly than
at present that the imports of foreign
wool would be lessened.
All the wools produced in tho United
States are of medium grades. It is
neither the very lieat nor the worst. The
sheep which produce carpet wools have
fleeces which average two and a half to
three pounds each. This does not begin
to pay the American farmer who raises
sheep for the fleece alone, and so that
every pound of carpet wool is imported.
This does away with the 81,000,000
pounds of imported carpet wool referred
Again, the American manufacturer
cannot make fine dress goods for ladies'
wear from American grown wool. Hs
has to pack hia trunk and go to London
to the great A ustralian wool sales. There
be buys all the fine wool he requires
like any unprotected English competi
tor. When his fine wool arrives at New
York he la glad to shell out 54 per cent,
ad valorem duty on it, all for the sacred
cause of protection!
If foreign wool was admitted free of
duty the farmer could not lose anything
on carpet wools, because he does not
produce them. He would lose some
thing over thu free importation of fins
wools, becauso some of his wools are
now used for this purpose.
But as auon as the American manufac
turers had an unrestricted entrance to
the London market the price of the
world's wool clip would go up like a
rocket. The American flock master,
like the American wheat grower, would
become an exporter. Ilia heavy, me
dium grade fleeces would bring him
higher prices in the world's market than
they do in Philadelphia now. Not only
that, but be could turn his attention to
improving his breed of sheep so as to
suit the climate and soil on which they
are reared, instead of trying to get
merino wool off mountain sheep.

A few weeks ago there appeared in
Rock Island a man of ratier pleass
ant address and bamlaome appearance,
who went abont from house to house
telling a patent ahade for gas burners.
Afterward he worked Davenport in the
me way, and in that city be ave it out
that hia name waa J. N. Wh Ipley, and
atated that he waa the conductor on the
train which bote the martyre! Garfield
on hia last journey from Washington to
theses. It tee ma now that prior to his
coming to this locality he d ?serted hia
wife and children and eloped with a Feo
ria woman. Consequently considerable
excitement haa been created it the latter
city on account of his escalade, and
a number of creditor have not been a
little concerned about him. I'.t came to
Peoria the other night, and tlie Tran$
cript baa thia account of hia arrival:
Once more the gay J. N. W helpley is
in Peoria. His hoof is in Lis native
heath, and he haa prepared to throttle
the numerous threaia which have been
engaged in slandering hia fair name dur
ing hia absence. Daring the list couple
of days hia absence from P;ori has
created a great deal of excite nent. and
hia creditors evinced an especial tineas
mess about him.
At 7:05 o'clock last night he came In on
the T., P. & W. train, and when he
reached hia residence at No. 18 6 N. Jcf

the excitement concerning him. It will
be remembered that the newspi pers in

he had eloped with one Johanna
Goldbeck. with whom he had been
keeping company in Peoria. A Tran
script reporter interviewed the t ero of all
thia romance last night, and found him
quite warm under the collar on account
of the wild rumors. He wished it stated
that "any man who says I left Peoria in
company with a woman is a liar, and he
dare not face me and say so."
