But, if on 411 the heavy articles of furniture there are rollers, it will be an easy matter to take up the carpet every few weeks, have it shaken and put down again. The bur- tains in this family room should be of cotton or linen only. Heavy damask curtains may have a rich and comfort able look, but we want light in our win ter rooms, and we do not want hangings which atwjrb all sorts of exhalations, and are incapable of being cleansed. At night our living rooms shall be lighted by hanging or bracket lamps, so placed that in any part of the room one may sit and read with no apprehension of accident by the overturningof a table,' dr annoyance by the unexpected change or removal of the light. C.i:-iron brachets may be had for $1.20 a dozen. and if they were in more general use as lamp supporters we would have fewer accidents by fire and more comfort at night. Securely fastened against the wall at a distance from the stove or reg ister should be a thermometer, in which the mercury should never be permitted to rise above 70 degrees or fall below 68 degrees. By its side, if there were such an instrument, and it is to be most ear nestly wished that there were, should be the "air tester," from which with cer tainty the sanitary condition of the air in the room should be ascertained and noxious gases in it should be made to declare themselves. There is the "hy grometer." by which the moisture in the air may be determined, and in houses heated by hot-air furnaces it is very well to have one. If the plants in the room drop their leaves the obvious inference is that the air is tx dry, and means should be devised for increasing the am'oiint of moisture in it. The minor details of furniture in the living room wilt naturally suggest themselves, and if the spirit which presides over this apart ment is one of love, peace, cheerfulness hope, beneficence, Ivhat will be lacking to make this room, not Bethel, the gate to Heaven, but a very heaven of delight to all its inmates. Sew York Tribune. She.'p Durban lry. Kansas Abroad. We clip the following from a late nam ber of the Zanesville, Ohio, Courier, as showing the esteem in which Kansas is held by the people of the Buckeye State: "The grass in the rich lands of Kansas is reported to be nine feet high. The Kansas cattle ought to grow to the size of elephants on such pasture land. There appears to be but little doubt that Kan sas i d.ie of the bsat States in the Union for agricultural as well as grazing pur poses. California seems not to be well adapted to small farmers, and many of those who sought the golden shores last year, have returned, and others are re- turning. Persons owning ranches con taining from five to a hundred thousand acres will not dispose of their land in small tracts. The whole body could be bought in many instances, if farmers would Club together and make the pur chase, and then cut it up into small farms. Here, however, great difficulties .are met wih at the outset. The ranches generally cannot be cut up to suit small farmers. There are large bodies ol mountain land connected with most ranches, only suitable for sheep raising. Where the land is goodjbr farming purposes, it is held at so high a figure, that it is beyond the reach of most small farmers. It will be mlriV vears before California will bo tilled by small farmers. The indications are now, that the people will flock to Kansas in the coming spring and possess the land. Land is cheap, climate pleasant and healthful, water good, and the soil is rich. The State has been under a cloud for a few years but its future looks brighter to-day than for years past." upon their feet. In the young state the pure merino1 is much more delicate than the coarse-wool. The large amount and superior quality of the wool furnished by the merino is another argument great ly in their favor. The offspring of the "natives" of the East, or the common Missouri ewes and merino rams, will unquestionably give the largest satisfac tion in Kansas. Sheep introduced from the East should reach here as soon as possible after shear ing, in order that they may become ac customed to our grasses while they are juicy and most palatable. The common est of all mistakes and the prime cause of nine-tenths of the failures with sheep IT A ' 1 .1 in jvansas, is iiegicci m mis matter. The sheep as purchased of Eastern farmers are generally "broken-mouthed," worn out specimens; these, arriving in the State late in the season, weary and exhausted from the long journey, are turued loose upon the prairies to feed up.in the dried grass. It is not surpris ing that under such circumstances whole flocks frequently perish the first winter after their arrival. , In this latitude sheep should receive the protection of good sheds during the winter months, and the grass around the winter shed should be allowed to attain as heavy growth as possible, so as to fur nish feed during the fine weather of winter. To best accomplish this it will generally be found desirable to have the summer "corral" and winter sheds a considerable distance apart. For young and healthy sheep, hay will generally be found a sufficient winter food, but aged sheep and Iambs should have a little grain every day, and will pay well for such extra care. At the present time there are not far from two thousand heep in Riley coun ty, aud of these twelve hundred have been brought into the county since the first of March. Of the sheep thus lately introduced, J. H. Lee owns seven hun dred and W. H. Fajjley two hundred head. The post-office address of both is Manhattan, Kansas. Respectfully yours. E. M. Sh el-tox. The UesiU tf a Hinired Years. Winter Care of Stock. The Living Koom. If there is one room that should be cheerful) sunny, well ventilated it is that tvhere the family passes most of its time. In fact, the room with a warm southern exposure, whether it be in the planning of the house designed as parlor, dining-room or kitchen, should be the gathering place or the family during the winter. Hither should be brought whatever in the h'iuse or out of it can make the room attractive; -bookcases with something in it for tho various tastes of the members of the household, end a place for magazines and newspa persso the table and mantlepiece be left for other uses, a lounge or sofa not too good for little feet to clamber over, au organ or a piano around which the fam ily may gather for choral singing at morning devotions or when the day is done, pictures on the walls, around them living vines wreathing theirfresh foliase and in the sunny win low a shelf filled with winter-blooming plants, over Which if there is no cat in the house, a cage may swing with a bit of incarnate music in.it. If a place can be found for it, a fernery on a table in one corner will be no slight addition to the attractiveness of' the room, or an aquarium, stocked from a neighboring stream or pond before Jack Frost has bound it with a tight cover. To muffle the clatter of little boots there must be on the floor a thick wool ea carpet.

State what is necessary in food, shelter, protection, eta, to secure success 7 Yours respectfully, Alfred Gray. Sec'y State Board of Agriculture. Manhattan, Kan., Nov. 3 1S75. Horn Alfred Gray: Dear Sir : I am very glad to do any thing within my power for the advance ment of sheep husbandry in this State, fur I believe that Kansas possesses certain natural advantages which, when our people are properly educated, will make it oae of the "groat wjoI growing States." I say "when oar people are properly educated," for wool growing is a different matter from raising corn or wheat, or herding cattle; it demands a good degree of natural ta3tc and speciaIJ:ri5wIedgeof the work, and the difficulties to be en countered in it. The consiberable suc cess, no less than the disastrous failures that have been made in wool-growing in this part of the State, will, I think, bear me out in this statement. Without attempting to reply to your questions in the order in wiiic'i they are propounded, I will endeavor to an3wer as fully as seems suited to your purpose. First among the "peculiar advantages" possessed by Kanstis in this matter of sheep husbandry, mast 1)3 mentioned its ..1: . T. :..

Farmers who were able to make warm, substantial stables for their stbek, have, of course already attended to that but there arc thousands who must make the old sta bles, sheds, and pig-stys answer until they have accumulated a little more, and such must resirt to less expensive meth ods of excluding the cold air, am! saving the amount of fjjJ necessary to preserve their animals in a good condition. Every grain growing farmer has, of course, his straw stack, and straw is an excellent non conductor of heat. Sta bles, with olily an outside siding, can easily be lined with old boards, and the space between the lining and out-side, stuffed with straw. In this way a sta ble can be made as warm as in a close clap-boarded barn. If boards arc scarce it will not be necessary to nail the lining close together, only closo enough to keep the straw in place. Cattle should hot be left under open sheds, or to crouch under the k'eivard side of straw stacks. If you have noth ing better than open sheds for your cat tle, try nailing up two tiers of old boards in front, filling in between with straw, line the closed side aud ends, and tic up your cattle so they may llot hook one another. We have known sheep provided with very comfortable quarters in a low shed covered with straw, and banked up arouud with the same material, being left open in front. If sheep are kept dry, they will endure quite a low degree of cold without detriment to their health. But when they are exposed to cold rains and their wool filled with water, they part rapidly with flesh and strength. Other animals, swine, poultry, &c, will make liberal returns for a little labor, judiciously expended in making their habitations dry and warm. It is poor economy to allow swine to wade or be hber- If a man should recommend a clerk to a merchant by telling him that the chief excellence of the friend whom he recom mended was that he would not forge the merchant's name, or an engineer should offer as his credentials trustworthy evi dence that he would not steal, or a car penter should be pressed upon a man about to build a house because he was not a pick-pocket all these suggestions would be thought excellent fooling. But an employer would fall into very grave thinking if, when he said he wanted men competent to do his work, he should be told that -that was a secondary consider ation to the question whether they would steal. He would probably come out of his thinking to remark that il he had come into a community of sharpers, he would go elsewhere, and find people who we're at least and of course henest. A man may well be aghast if be is told that the important point in voting for a judge is to be sure to find one who will not be bribed, and that, in calling a physician, the essential question is not if he can cure, but wili he poison. If a hundred years have brought us, in casting about for officers and magistrates of every kind, to assume that only very great care can secure common honesty, and that if we elect to office men who will not forge, or steal, or commit burglary, or set fire to houses, we ought to rejoice and celebrate the great victory, what have we invited all mankind to Come and look at ? If we show them great buildings, is there no fear that they may discover them to be monuments of great rascality and jobbery? If we heap up inventions and machines of every kind, if we display the exquisite fineness aud elaboration of our manufactures, magnify the results of our industry, carry them down into the mines, whirl them from sea to sea upon a cloud of Vapor, unroll our dazzling sta tistics, and challenge the universe to show so much done in so little time, is there no danger if the issue be what we are told that the world may admire and applaud, and agree that such mowers and reapers and tedders and sowers, such cloths and silver and copper and coal, such notions and knick-knacks and com forts and conveniences and luxuries, such school houses and steeping cars and North River steamboats, were neVcr known, and are evidently the best of their kind, and then ask, since the things are so ex cellent, bow about the people ? and are they as intelligent, and, above all. hon est, as with such advantages they ought to be? Wouldn't it be awkward to have to reply that, simultaneously with the magnificent results of machinery and en terprise and inventive genius which we had the pleasure to present to the universe, we were engaged in a tremen dous struggle to fill our public offices with men who would not steal ? If that be a fact there seems to be a good oppor tunity for humiliation as well as con gratulation. If our politics have become mninly an cfiort to secure honesty in of fice, it is something of Which we ought to be thoroughly ashamed. Yet there is no doubt that it is largely true. In his eulogy upon Mr. Seward before the Legislature of New York, Mr. Charles Francis Adams said : "Our fore fathers would marvel coiild they imagine it possible for me to claim credit for Mr. Sewnfd on the score of his honesty as a public man. Yet the time has come when we must honor one who never bought nor sold a vote or a place, and who never permitted his public action to be contaminated in the atmosphere of corporationinfluence." No one can de ny it, aw the oae chief contribution that The Career of a KeaUeky Slave. Twenty-five years ago Fierce Barber, then a hat merchant at Fourth and Main streets, owned a likely boy named Aleck, who acted as Miter in the store. A few years later the boy was sold south, and was hired out on the river. Before the war broke out Aleck bought himself, or at any rate became a free man. He lived in New Orleans, and when the war closed-, and the black man became an important factor in the social problem of the South, he appeared on the surface, and became known as Hon. A. E. Barber, State1 Senator. Later, he became wharf- master, and with office came wealth. Two years ago he visited Louisville for medi cal treatment, and was then Brigadier General of the state Militia. The Ken tucky slave porter passed up, step by step, to place and power, and a few days ago died, the telegraph briefly announc ing the fact. He died, respected by his fellow-citizens. Brigadier General Aleck Barber, ex-slave, ex-State Senator, and ex-wharf master of New Orleans, was an evidence of what the whirligig of time has brought about in the latter days. In all these places the man was never other than an honor to his State. He rose from servitude to place and power, and has passed away to make room for a new or der of things.

I am told also that the attacks of antra ovis are alsi unknown. The great ex tent of unoccupied "rane" covered with ibun-lant graues, found in the abund ance of excellent water and the excecdinz cheapness of hay for winter forage, must also be placed among the advantages possessed by our State in this matter. B.it sheep husbandry as practiced East, namely, as part of a system of farm man agement, is hardly possible in Kanas except in rare cases. Here sheep must be kept in considerable herds, with the herdsman constantly in attendance, and the range mast n it be limited. The reasons for this arc : 1. The abundance ofdr?, waives and coyotes. 2. Expense of fencing. 3. And most important the general absence of '-tame grasses" in Kansas, and the impossibility of pastur ing closely the native grasses without destroying them. Of all the breeds of sheep the merinos and its grades are best adapted to the wants ot Kansas. In Colorado and Wes tern KansAj the favorite sheep, so far as I have observeJ, are ths cross-bred pro geny of Mexican and Missouri ewes and merino rains. The whole argument so far as breed is concerned, may be brieflv stated thus: The merinos have the gregarious instinct mare perfectly devel oped than any other breed. It is claimed -that the herdsmen can handle with the same ease three times as many merino as of English sheep. Moreover, the merinos are the hardiest of anv sheep liavinc anything like their value, when once promptly removed when saturated with filth. It will make good manure but is poor material for even hos to make their bed on. If straw should be scarce, earth and sods can be used to good advantage in excluding the cold. Farmers frequently bank up around their dwellings with earth, but how seldom do they use the same abundant material to bank up around their barns or sheds, yet it would undoubtedly be quite as afficacious in the one case as in the other. Sods might also be used as covering for temporary sheep sheds in the absence of better material. In banking up around a barn, the bank should be raised high enough to cover the sill so as to exclude the air that often finds entrance between wall and sill. If only left during cold weath er, it will do but little injury to the siding. We suggest these inexpensive substi tutes for those only who cannot, at pres ent, aiuru to build tarst-class out-build mgs.

To be sure, a white flaky crust looks nice and tastes better, but indulging our appetite in its use lays the foundationfordyspepsia, rheumatism gout and palsy. For years I have been experimenting to find out how to make a palatable pie crust without lard, and finally have succeeded. The process I give for the benefit of those who choose to profit by it: Take irood rich .butter milk, soda and a little salt, and mix just as soft as can be mixed and bold together; have plenty of flour on the moulding board and rolling pin; roll very thin ; then make and bake as other pies, or rather in a slower oven, and when the pie is taken from the oven do not cover it up.
