A FARMER'S TALK TO FARMERS.
The North Pole Moves Down The First Lamb Born in
the Open to a Cold World The Oddest Thing in
Life is How Some Things Do Happen and Some
Don't Things Which Cannot be Lost Sheep Know
What's Good for 'Em Instinct Beats Reason for Ani
malsAn Illustrative Instance.
(Written specially for The Bulletin.)
Well, winter's struck on, according
to present appearances. Up in this
Upck of the woods the last two months
have been more like the second season
of JSova Scotian climate, as once de
scribed by a native. They had but
two real seasons there, he said; "six
months winter and six months d d
late in the fall." It's been neither sum
mer nor winter, but quite "late in the
lau ror tne last eight or ten weeks,
i But this morning our old friend of the
' North Pole has arrived. As I write,
j it is snowing and sleeting outside; the
wind is blowing; In vindictive guests;
already nearly a foot of snow blankets
I my garden and is drifted two or
. three feet deep along; the fences. Oc
' casionally a wing of the gale back
; lashes over my old-fashioned, big
throated chlmney-top.and whirls a cur
I rent down, momentarily reversing the
draft and sending- a curl of smoke out
from the stove. Then the fire takes a
fresh hold and roars the wrond-headed
zephyr boisteronsly back up the chim
ney.
On ye it's winter, sure enough,
the first real winter's morning and tiav
we've had. And up at the barn my
first lamb, about two hours old, is
shivering and bleating and, presum
ably, thinking thaj, this Is a cold, cold
world for lambs as well as folks. I
guess he'll "make a live of It." Old
Mrs. Kvve la tending right up to t.itn.
and he seems to have ideas of his own,
already, about the proper business ot
lambs. But It made me laugh with a
curious mixture of amusement and
disgust whea I opened the barn-doors
this morning and looked out into the
yard. You see, last evening it was
mild and seeme.l to promise nothing
more than a bit of rain. The barnyard
has two sheds open on one side, off
one of which Is the inclosed sheep-fo,ld.
It has been so warm, thus far, that I
have not shut the sheep Into their fold,
nights. It is oi n so they can go Into
It If they please, or can roam about
tha yard, if they prefer that. But if
there Is a promise of lambs on the
horizon I mean to shut them in over
night and during storms. Probably I
do just that about six times out of
seven. But that seventh time, when
I've miscalculated or misread the
weather, when I've left the sheepfold
door open into the yard and a sudden
change starts a howling snow-storm
during the night, or sends the ther
mometer down below zero that sev
enth time Is the one which a lamb will
invariably pick out to appear on. And
this morning, when I was wakened by
the snow and sleet thrashing against
my bedroom windows. I said to mvself.
with a conviction that would have
given odds of at least two to one
against any opposing gambler: "Bet
you there's a lamb."
And rhere was; right out In the yard,
too. He was on a Ktraw-y and com
paratively dry oasis amid the snow,
and under a corner of a roof. But the
snow was sifting almost everywhere,
and the wind was whipping viciously
nround t;e post. , And he wasn't en
Joying life not one little bit. I called
the ewe Into the closed pen, and he
followed. There they are now. Guess
they'll both pull through; If they don't,
as the young doctor said after a rather
unlucky case: "I've saved the old man
anyhow."
Theoretically, I don't believe In luck.
Practically, I cuss it and discuss it
very mucn as other folks do. Out of
about a hundred winter lambs I've had
come during the last few years nearly
eighty have been born during howling
snowstorms or in the midst of a below
zero "cold snap," when the environment
has made necessary about four times
as much worry and bother as if they
had come in sensible weather. of
course It Jsn't "luck;" how can it be
when there isn't any such thing as
-luck?" But manifestly I'm not re
sponsible for It. And it would really
seem a little impertinent to charge up
nuch trivial happenings to Providence.
We're quite as much inclined to over
work Providence by loading the re
sponsibility for our bad fortune on it
as we are to overwork this non-existing
but pesky "luck."
Granting that there's no such thing
as luck," and granting that Providence
isn't changing the laws of the universe
every little while to help us or bat us
over the head; granting that every
thing happens in accord with an un
varying scheme of cause and effect a
sequence so universal and so certain
that we call it "law" granting all
this, it's the oddest thing in life how
some tilings happen and some things
don't happen.
If I lose or mislay some small thing
I am almost "certain-sure" to find it

there, unseen by seven dozen passing

up into plain sight by a buggy wheel
just two minutes before I came along
to see it and pick it up. Last summer
it dropped through a hole in my
pocket somewhere in three acres oi
garden. I found it again. If I Iobs a
pencil or a pair of gloves or an old bolt,
they'll turn up all right. If I don't
find 'em myself somebody else will and

In, for I had looked at it before start

noticed the broken chain dangling as I
turned at the further end. But a long
search failed to find it and I've never
seen it since.
If a thing is of little Importance or
value and I lose it I am fairly sure to
find it again. But it it Is of real value,
then good-bye. Of course this isn't
"luck." But what in goodness" name
shall we call it?
As the theater programmes some
times say, please assume a lapse of
about nineteen and a half minutes be
tween that last word and the paragraph
following.
rve just waaea up to tne Darn again
to take a look at the little buster.
His mother has called him out of
the fold, and he Is lying, apparently
perfectly comfortable, on the straw
under the open shed, again. Some
years ago, when I was more certain
than I am now that I know more of
a sheep, I should have dragooned him
back and fastened him in where neith
er of them could get out Into the snow.
But. the longer I live, the more firm
i.i my conviction that I know what
I want better than a sheep. And,
"pari passu," the longer I live the
more firm grows my conviction that
sheep know what's good for them bet
ter than I do. If they want to eat
weeds and bushes instead of good hay,
it's because weeds and bushes are bet
ter for them. Let 'em have the stuff.
If they want to lie out in the open
shed, where the wind blows and the
snow sifts a little, and there's plenty
of fresh air, why, let 'em. I've lost
one or two sheep by trying to take
care of 'em, my way. I haven't lost
one, yet, bylettlng them take care of
themselves, as nearly as is possible
under domestication.
Indeed, the more I see of animals
the more I am convinced that they
are very different from humans and
aren't wisely managed on lines which
would be pood policy for humans.
Whatever "instinct" may be. and I
don't care a straw for the naturalists'
discussions over Its approach to or
divergence from reason whatever it
may be, it is a safer guide to follow
in treating the animals, wliich have it
than our reason is. Some years ago,
a certain experiment station undertook
to "coddle" its herd of cows along
some hew feeding and stabling fad
ideas. One of the professors, a farm
raised lad, got permission to make a
little '"speriment" of his own. So he
picked out a fairly good cow. not one
of the best nor one of the poorest, and
proceeded to treat her as nearly the
way she wanted as he could find
out. She had her choice of feeds, and
was finally feiven that which she
seemed to like the best and ate up
the cleanest, which happened to be
mostly farm roughage cornstalks,
straw, hay. etc. She had her choice
of a box-stall or an open shed, bat
tened on one side and the endb. She
preferred the shed and stayed in it.
She went out to the brook for water
when she pleased, regardless of the
weather. The other cows had scien
tifically compounded rations, and run
ning water in their stablm, and were
never let out if it stormed, and were
curried once a day and blanketed If
there was a hard frost, and so on and
on.
And that little red cow out In tha
open shed, that cold winter, did bet
ter than the coddled herd averaged,
came to the spring in better shape,
gave more milk and made more but
ter, and produced the finest calf of
the whole bunch.
We men and women don't know it
all, yet. Those of us who think they
do, usually know rather less than their
fair share. If I want my horses and
cows and sheep and hens and cats to
be healthy and happy, I humblv try
to find out what they want, and do
cilely get it for them. If I can. Which
is a course all the mighty muck-a-mucks
of tho breeders' associations
will cry out against as heretical, not
to say Idiotic. Well, let 'em I can
say "Bah" as loud as they can say
"Boh." THE FARMER.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.
The Prevention of Insanity.
Mr. Editor: The Connecticut Socie
ty of Mental Hygiene has recently is
sued an appeal for more adequate pro
vision for the care of the insane of the
state. Charles W. I'age, M. D., super
intendent of the hospital for the insane
at Danvers, Mass., in his thirtieth an
nual report, says:
"It may be asserted that the lunatic
hospital, per se, is not a remedy for
insanity, in fact, as generally regarded
by its inmates, it provokes inimical
effects and in some cases aggravates
the mental disease. And yet the hos
pital is a necessity in many cases of
mental disorder. Through its humane
provisions the insane can be protected
from their own unreason, while the
evolution of natural physiological lasrs.
aided by the arts of the physician, it
may be, corrects the perverted pro
cesses. For the most part the hospital
proper bears the same relation to in
sanity that a plaster splint bears to a
fractured bone. The physician may
render some important service, but he
is greatly in the dark as to the actual
requirement. The origin of the mental
disorder is so obscure or so remote in
the sequence of physiological events
that as a rule only advanced symptoms
can be subjected to treatment after
the patient nas been committed to the
insane hospital. Tho prevention of in
sanity, rather than its cure, must be
accomplished, if tills malady Is to be
dealt with successfully."
Dr. Page and insanity experts the
world over maintain that insanity is to
a large extent a preventable disease.
Wouldn't the Connecticut Society of
Mental Hygiene take a step in the
right direction by considering measures
to prevent the occurrence of insanity?
We must attempt to prevent its oc
currence in the same way as we at
tempt to prevent the occurrence of
what are called ordinarily bodily dis
eases. If It be admitted that to a large
extent preventable diseases exist
among us in consequence of the ignor
ance of the people, it is clear that we
can only convert the preventable into
the prevented, by the removal of that
ignorance thiough a sounder education.
Men must be taught that it is their
duty, and not merely their Interest, to
understand th? laws of health and to
make them eventually the rule of their
conduct. In short, we can only hope
that prevontuble insanity, like other
preventable diseases, will be diminish
ed in amount when the education of
men is so conducted as to render IVrn
both intelligent and dutiful guardians
of their own physical, intellectual and
moral health.
Says a well known writer on Insan
ity: "No fact connected with insanity is
more firmly established than that it
largely originates directly from in
herited tendencies; and, if we include
all weaknesses, imperfections and dis
eases rising from the same source, it
may be found that more than half the
insanity of the present day can be
traced directly or Indirectly back to
hereditary sources. Let it under
stood, more and more, that disease Riid
insanity come mainly from inherited
cause5!; let young men and women be
come thoroughhly acquainted with such
facts, and it must lead to greater care
fulness in forming matrimonial alli
ances. When the.oommunity Is gener
ally informed on this subject, inquiries
wiil at once be made as to the health,
the constitution and the inherited ten
dencies of candidates for marriage.
Such inquiries are already made in a
quiet way, and they must Increase, in
the very "nature of things."
Sir James Coxe in a summary of the
primary causes of insanity says the
leading factors are "dissipation in all
its forms, overwork, meagre fare, lack
of ventilation, and neglect of moral
culture.'' It will be seen that each
one of these covers a great deal of
ground. Passing by the last point
nfglect of moral culture the other
four constitute the chief sources of
diseases of all kinds some of which
terminate In mental derangement. But
nearly all these great agencies, pro
ductive of so much disease of body and
mind, are subject to human control
and can be more or less checked, if
not entirely prevented.
The first named, dissipation, is a
fruitful ource of insanity. This may
consist in drinking habits. In the use
of tobacco and opiates, or in the abuse
of the sexual organs, by licentiousness
and solitary vice. These evils are all
the results of voluntary acts, the work
of a free agent; and so they can be
prevented.
Overwork of body or mind not in
frequently brings on mental derange
ment. Meagre fare and bad air are
evils which multitudes of poor people
cannot always escape. Neglect of
moral culture is an evil directly con
nected with the choice of individuals,
and the state of public morals. It is
a sin or an evil which can be correct
ed wherever the fault may be. and
there certainl" can be no necessity or
justification for any neglect. Dr. Hen
ry Mandsley, the distinguished for
eign alienist, speaks on this poin,t as
follows:
"It is to the perfecting of mankind
by the thorough application of a true
svstem of education that we must look
for the development of the knowledge
and the rower of self-restraint which
shall enable them, not only to protect
themselves from much insanity in one
generation, but to check the propoga
tion of it from generation ot genera
tion. Unhappily, we are not yet agreed
as to what should be the true aim and
character of education. Regarding the
subject from a scientific point of view,
the best education would seem to be
that which was directed to teach man
to understand himself, and to under
stand the nature which surrounds him
and of which he is a part and a prod
Disease Germs-Onr Danger

Disease germs assail us on every hand and at

Your blood is not pure if you

It is well understood that the most
favorable time to cure Insanity is In
its first stages; on this account, it
is constantly urged that all Insane per
sons, just as soon ai marked symptoms
of the disease appear, ahould at one
be sent to a hospital for the Insane.
This counsel has generally prevailed in
acute and violent cases, but In the
milder forms of th disease friends fre
quently object and delay. It Is a
great step to take; there are certain
lorms of law which must be complied
with; then, the dread of its effect on
the patient, the trouble attending the
removal, and the anxiety about the
situation and treatment of the patient
in the hospital, etc., all these things
cause delay, sometimes for weeks and
months, and may prevent the patient
from going till the acute stages of the
disease are passed. The complaint is
often made by superintendents that
large numbers are sent to the hospitals
who cannot be cured, because they
come too late. This is given as one of
the reasons why the rate of cures is so
small; for, taking all admitted into
our insane hospitals, only about 40 per
cent,, on an average, actually recover.
