Will Keeping Sheep 1'nyl
A writer in the National Live Stock
Journal gives hin idea on this subject:
Sheep pay better than any other
Block, no matter what the kind of stook
is. I have been breeding some 800
head of cattle, and I am satisfied that,
oven with the most favorable condition
for selliug, when the time oomes, I
shall make a great deal more money,
dollar for dollar on the money invested
in nlicop than I shall make on the cap
ital invented in cattle. I have about
600 sheep running without any partic
ular attention or euro, and havo sold
$1,400 worth of wool of this year's clip,
and have j^DO lambs besides. I do not
think it possible to havo done so well
on an equal amount of capital invested
in cattle. One great advantage sheep
havo over other stook is, that they
never die of contagious diseases whioh
they oontract. They got the scab or
foot-rot or something else, and if un
checked it gets them in bad condition,
and would ultimately, perhaps, kill
them. But tho vory worst oontagiouii
diseases to whioh sheep are subjeot,
give tho ownor ample time to treat the
affected auimals, and the diseases are
generally of a character whioh yield
readily to treatmont. But a man may
havo a lot of hogs, and feed them hun
dreds of bushels of corn daily, and
about the timo the bottoms of his cribs
aronoarod, and ho is thinking of selling,
some disease breaks out among them
?no ono knows what it is or what to do
for it?ono animal after another follow
ing in rapid succession is effected, and
the greater portion die. 1 have known
farmers to be well-nigh mined by the
appearance of a contagious disease of
thin oharaoter. Sheep are happily ex
empt from such rapid and fearful mor
tality. Besides, when a sheep dies?
and thoy will dio sometimes?his pelt is
suflioiont to pay for his keep from the
last shearing to his death. It makes no
difference, when he dies, or what kills
him, tho sheep never dies in debt.
Kotu1 Ion of JUnnurca.
All agree that rotation of crops is a
neoossary -condition to productiveness.
If we plant tho same land year after
year in tho samo crop, the result will be
almost barrenness. So it is with ma
nures. If every year we manure our
land with the same species of manure,
it will finally lose its effect, and the
consequonoe will be small crops. Even
land will become tired of farm-yard
manure and will ask for a change.
Guano, bone dust, lime and ashes hav
ing been applied to tho same land for a
number of years, the land will fail to
respond as it onoe did. The great agri
cultural chemist, Liebig, explains this
peculiarity on the gronnd that unless
all the elements required by a plant are
present, tho extent to whioh the ele
ment existing in the smallest quantity
is present, determines the resulting fer
tility. This explanation hau been gen
erally accepted as correct.
It is true that there are but few oases
wherein any land upon southern farmB
run any danger of becoming fatigued
by any kind of manure. Our lands
generally snfior moro from hunger than
from repletion. But the fact is ono of
interest and was brought speoially to
our notice during a recent visit to the
market garden of an aoquaintanoe who
informed us that his crops were falling
off from overdoses of stable manure
overy year for several years.
When to I'nt Tittitter.
An Arkansns corresdondent of the
Scientific American says: "I came here
30 years since, and began olearing land
and building houses with hewn logs and
boards split from tho trees. After sev
eral years' residence I noticed that vory
often pieces of tho samo kind of timber
decayed more quiokjy than others; and
after much thought and observation I
camo to tho oonolusion that timber
felled when the leaf first commenced
to grow rotted tho sap pff very quiokly,
but tho heart remained sound; that
timber felled, after, the fall of tho leaf
rottod in tho' heart, oven whon appar
ently Hound on tho outsido. When fire
wood out in tho winter was put on the
firo tho sap oamo out of tho heart, but
when cut in tho summer tho sap came
out of tho sap wood, and next the bark.
I notice nlso that all our lasting wood
has but little sap at any time in the
heart?such sb cedar, mulberry, Baesa
fras, and cypress. A cypress post out
in the snmmor of 1838 ia still sound,
although exposed to all weathers, while
ono of tho name kind of timber, out in
tho wintor of 185(5, and painted, has
rottod in tho heart. I saw yesterday
a pieoo of gum plank, whioh I sawod in
tho Bummor of 1850, that has lain over
sinoo, and is perfectly Bound; while oak
timber that was felled in the winter
before is now ontiroly rotten. My oon
olusion then is : Out timber after full
leaf, say in July and Angust, to get the
most laBt from it. Tho sap goes into
the heart of tho tree after leaf-fall, and
nneh-ivhent for Ileee.
A correspondent of Tho Enrol World
writes nH follows : " Tho right timo to
sow bnokwheat for beo pasturago is
about tho firat of July. Tf sown then,
it not only forms tho beat pasturago
for the bocH, but usnnlly yields a good
orop of Bcod. It is ono of our best
honey-produoing plants. Tho proper
quantity to bow to an aero is one peck,
although Borne prefer to sow two peeks.
I raise it largely, and suooeed best by
sowing only-one peck to the acre. The
number of acres required for thirty
colonies of bees will be about four, if it
is a good season for secreting honey.
I have known one aero of buckwheat to
furnish food enough for bees, so that
800 pounds of honey and 85 bushels of
grain were made from it. This was,
however, an unusually favorable season.
Five acres are the least that should be
sown for the number of colonies men
tioned, as it in better to have "too
much than not enough."
Bailing Tobacco in tho South.
In many portions of tho South, before
the war, very much of tho tobacco used
among tho farmers was grown upon
their farms and plantations. In Missis
sippi, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, the
Carolinas and Louisiana, there .was
considerable tobacco grown but a few
years ago. Now there is but little at
tention paid to growing this important
crop. The eous..mor confines himself
to a better or finer onltivated and manu
factured article. The old "homo twist"
is hardly to bo seen, whore a few years
ago little other, was to bo had. Tho
poorer olasses, with colored population,
since the settlement among them bl the
northern element, have received very
luxurious notions in their, drinking,
smoking, and ohewing habits. The finest
whisky or brandy is sought after, while
tho old " white wheat" and " peaoh and
molasses" are fast going ont of use.
Fine smoking brands of tobacco ire now
in use, as well as the most popular ping
and fine cute. Those who should be
the producers are consumers of the very
artlole they could grow more oheaply
than others. How much like nonsense
it looks for Connectiout, Iowa, Missouri,
Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennes
see to raise tobacco for the south and a
large export trade!
The idea that cotton had ceased to be
king in the south was a most absurd and
premature one. That moro corn is
grown, we do not deny, but not to the
considerable extent we have been led to
believe by the reports of those who de
sired to make it a corn-producing coun
Experiments have been made in more
than thirty oountieB in Texas, the past
season, in growing tobacco of the vari
ous- varieties, to test their adaptability
to that soil and olimato. The greater
part of these tests have been made in
northern and central counties of the
state, where the Missouri and Ohio
population has settled. With a pro
tracted drouth and an early frost, still
the result to the planters has been the
most satisfactory. Texas will become
one of our most excellent tobacco states.

Smuggling as a Fine Art
The Spanish contrabandist who
were in by-gone years the heroes of
many a romance, flourished because
import duties -wero high. At one time
English cargoes, or miscellaneous oar
goes in English ships, were landed at
Gibraltar on purpose to be smuggled
over the frontier into Spain, to the
value of ?1,000,000 per annum. As to
France, in time long subsequent to the
era of the Milan and Berlin decrees,
and when import duties were levied
only for the sake of revenues, the land
frontiers were the scene of extraordi
nary smuggling. Dogs were trained in
Belgium on purpose to smuggle goods
into France.. The animals wero of
largo size, and were trained to carry
twenty or twenty-five pounds each, the
load consisting of tobacco, sugar, oof
lee, etc They were converted across
the frontier in packs from France into
Belgium; they were kept all day with
out food, beaten unmercifully (what a
> superior being man is !) laden in the
I evening and started off. The poor
hungry animals made the best of their
way to their French homes, usually two
or three leagues from the frontier,
and were there well fed and kindly
treated. In ten years more than 40,
000 of those hard-working dogB wore
destroyed by the French custom offi
cers, three francs being given as a
bonus for the capture of eaoh. Some
times a dog would be found laden with
nearly ?50 worth of -smuggled goods.
Tho characteristics of the Russian
typo of feminine beanty are an extreme
fairness of the complexion, grayish
blue eyes, blonde or ohestnut hair, and
a certain embonpoint, arising from the
lack of exeroise and the life indoors,
whioh is compelled by a winter latsing
seven or eight months. They suggest
the idea of odalisques, whom the genius
of tho north keeps confined in the
tropical atmosphere of a hot-house.
They have complexions of cold cream
and snow, with tints of the heart of a
oamellia?like those over-veiled women
of tho seraglio, whose skin the sunlight
has not tonohed. By this extreme fair
ness their delicate features are rendered
even more delicate and tho softened

tho cause of disease, and tho patient re

blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and Invigorator
of tho systom. Never before iu tho

No Person con take these Bittere
according to directions, and remain long

g troy cd by mineral poison or other
means, and vital organs wasted beyond
Bilious, Remittent and Inter

throughout the United States, especially
thoso of tho Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri,
Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan
sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande,
Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro
anoko, James, and many others, with
their vast tributaries, throughout oar
ontiro country during tho Summer and
I Autumn, and remarkably so during sea*
[sons of'unusual heat and dryness, are ?
invariably accompanied I y extensive de
rangements of tho stonack and li7er,
and other abdominal ?-?>cora. In thesr
treatment, a purgati ve, exorting a pow
erful influence upon thoso various or
gans, is essentially necessary. There
is no cathartic for tho purpose equal to
? Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
as thoy will speedily removo tho dark
colored viscid mat tor with which tho
bowels aro loaded, at tho same time
j stimulating tho secretions of the liver,
I and generally restoring tho heallby
functions of tho digestive organs.
Fortify tho body against disease
by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar
Bitters. .No epidemic can tako hold
i of a system thus fore-armed.
Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head
ache, Pain in tho Shoulders, Coughs,
Tightness of tho Chest, Dizziness, Soar
Eructations of tho Stomach, Bad Taste
in tho Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita?
tation of tho Heart, Inflammation of the
Lungs, Pain in tho region of the Kid
neys, and a hundred other painful symp
toms, are tho offsprings of Dyspepsia.

Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck,
Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indolent
Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old
Sores, Eruptions of tho Skin, Soro Eyes, etc
In these, an in all other constitutional Dis
eases, "Walker's Vinegar Bitters have
shown their great curativo powers in the
most obBtinato and intractablo cases.
For Inflammatory and Chronic
Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit
tent and Intermittent Fevors, Diseases ot
tho Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder,
theso Bitters havo no equal. Such Diseases
aro caused by Vitiated Blood. ^
Mechauical Diseases.?Persons en
gaged in Paints and Minerals, euch ns
Plumbers, Typc-scttors, Gold-boaters, and
Minors, as thoy advanco in lifo, aro subject
to paralysis of tho Bowels. To guard
against this, tako n doso of Walker's Vin
egar Bitters occasionally.
For SKiu Diseases, Eruptions, Telv
tor, Salt-Khoum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples,
Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Riug-worms,
Scald-head, Soro Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch,
Scurfs, Discolorntioua of tho Sain, Humors
and Diseases of tho Skiu of whatovor namo
or nature, aro lite'rally dug np and CArried
out of the system in a short timo by the us?
of thoso Bitters.
Pin, Tape, and other Worms,
lurking in tho system of so many thousands,
aro effectually destroyed and removed. No
system of medicine, no vennifugos, no an
thelminitics will frco the system from worms
liko theso Bitters.
For Female Complaints, in young
or old, married or single, at tho dawn of wo
manhood, or tho turn of life, those Tonic
Bitters display so decided an influence that
improvement is soon porceptiblo.
Cleanso tho Vitiated Blood when
ovor you find"its impurities bursting through
tho skin in Pimples, Eruptions,^ or Sores5
cleanso it whon you find it obstructed and
sluggish in tho veins; cleanso it whon it is
foul; your feolings will toll you when. Keep
tho blood puro, aud tho health of tho system
