Sttant attention which is falled to the
value of sheop, not only ats improvers of
the land.ut is profitable farm animals,
for wool and mutton, there are many
farmors who have never raised or kept a
single sheep, though their farms are
adapted to i'aising sheep largely and
profitably. Why this is we cannot im
agino, for facts and figures can be had
by the score to provo the profitableness
of sheep breeding, if nocessary, and
about the only drawback in ninny local
itIes iM the loss occasioned by dogs.
Many a rough, wornout or neglected
farm might be brought up rapidly and
h1 made paying land,by breeding sheop
thoreon, as the manure from the sheep
is one of the most enriching of manures,
and is evenly and finely aistributed. Of
courso they may not do this without
being fed something besidos what thev
can get inl the fields, yet this additional
food works to the projit of the breeder
inl two ways-it not only insures good
and proiltable growth of flsh and wool,
but it makes the manuro riehEr and
more valuable. Even ).oor farmers can
give shcoy it trial by commenomg in a
14al11 way, and then, a.t meana a:id ex

the natural i'orease from a small flock
of sheep Is by no means inconsiderable,
