THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 20, 1895. EARTHQUAKE INCIOENTS. Courageous Conduct and Marvelous Es capes of Turks. A Constantinople correspondent of the New York Tribune says that it will probably never be known how many persons were killed in that city by the earthquake of last summer. The Turk ish government has a chronic hatred of facts, and the newspapers were forbid den to publish statistics of the earth quake. What are believed to be mod erate estimates place the number of deaths at about one hundred and fifty, and the number of the wounded at about six hundred. The correspondent cannot help prais: lag the courage of the firemen stationed on watch at the top of a tower more than two hundred feet high. They stuck to their post, although the tower swayed like a flagstaff, and when the fires broke out after the overthrow of dwellings, they gave the signals as usual. Another case of a similar sort was that of a minaret builder who had gone up to the top of a minaret to remove a conical cap which the first shocks had thrown askew. While he was there an other shock occurred, and there was another panic in the streets. His assistants, who were in one of the galleries of the minaret, began to run downstairs, and the mosque serv ants below shouted to him to come down, but he stayed where he was. "If this is going to fall," he said, "it will fall before I can get out of it," and he proceeded with his work. . Many wonderful escapes occurred. Two men were walking together. A Turk met them, and, as is not unusual when a Turk meets foreigners, he pushed in between them, instead of turning to one side. At that instant a stone fell from the building above them, and hit the Turk, who fell dead between the two horrified foreigners. But the most marvelous escape was that of a boy three years old. lie was running along the street at the base of the city wall just as one of the ancient towers was overthrown. When the dust cleared away he was discovered pinned to the ground by great stones lying on his skirts on each side of him, but himself quite unhurt. A COMMON-SENSE APPEAL. An Aftor-DInner Speaker's Flea for Amer icanism. A dinner was arranged in a southern eity in honor of a visitor from a north ern state, and the host, when the cigars were lighted, began to rally his guest by repeating some of the usual section al jokes, says the Youth's Companion. "We now have a northern Yankee at onrmercy,"he remarked, jocosely, "and hope that he will not be intimidated by the presence of so many southerners. We ean assure him that revolvers and bowie-knives have been left in the anteroom, and that he is safe, at least until we get our hats and arms." Everybody laughed and expected that the visitor would respond to this badinage by making full use of his privilege of ridiculing southern pecul iarities. He surprised the company by speaking in another vein. "Our host," he began, "traveled with me in Europe, and I observed that wherever we went he registered him self as an American, and never as a southerner. I thought it was a good example to follow, and in variably put myself down, not as a northerner, but simply- and proudly as an American. What seems to me singular is the fact that two men, who were content to travel all over Europe as Americans, should fancy that they are anything else in their own country. I do not know why I should be anything at home that I am not when I have crosssd the sea and gone among for eigners." By this time the company perceived that they were to have something bet ter than old-time Yankee talk and sec tional quips. They encouraged the vis itor to continue by applauding him heartily. He ended by making a common-sense appeal for a more general use of tke good old word "American." "Let us not be proud of our common eountry," he said, "when we are abroad among strangers, and ashamed of it when we are at home. I am from the north and you are in the south, but there is no source of patriotic pride which is open to you that is not mine as well by virtue of my birthright as an American'. Nor can I glory in anything that is not yours also." . The company rose when the visitor sat down and joined in singing "Hail Columbia" and "He's a jolly good fel low." They voted it one of the best after dinner speeches which they had ever heard, and congratulated him heartily upon his success in substituting wholesome and stimulating patriotism in place of the light diet of acrid sec tional jokes. Kuled Entirely by Women. A pleasing account of a government entirely under feminine rule comes from j the little Indian ocean island of Minicoy, situated midway between the Maldive and Laceadive groups. The woman is the head both of the gov ernment and of the home, and when she marries her husband takes her name and hands over all his earnings tAroughout his married life. Silk gowns are the universal wear, the upper classes donning red silk and earrings, wnile the lower ten appear in dark striped silk of coarser quality. EARLY LAMB RAISING. Some Valuable Hints from so Old Hand at the Business. There is money in early lambs if you live within easy access of some good market and have a natural grass farm. Lambs do not bear long transportation, and twelve to twenty hours is as long as they should be en route to market. Begin by purchasing a flock of two-year-old sLeep, say August 1, after their lambs are weaned, about half Southdown and half Merino, or natives. Give your flock good pasture, and avoid all excitement of dogs and noise, and get your sheep as familiar with you by quiet and kindness as possible, giving them salt twice a week, and when win ter first sets in take them from pasture and have a nice large, dry yard con nected with your sheep barn fenced with a four-foot board fence, and then a three-foot wire netting on the top, so that dogs can't get in to bite or scare them. Have the barn dry and warm, but not too tight, and with windows open ing to the south for sun, as sheep like that in winter, and a small room in one end made quite tight and warm by ceil ing inside, filling in with sawdust so as to avoid frost, in which to keep your grain, salt, etc., and also as a pluce to put your ewes a few days before they drop their lambs, and also a few days after, till they and their lambs are strong enough to be placed with the flock; and movable partitions in this room are very useful, so that it may be divided into two or three or more parts as necessary, in case a sheep does not do well or fails to own her lamb (and here let me say sometimes a dog tied in one corner will effect a cure of that fault in a few hours). If you ean have a spring or very small stream in the yard do so. and if not you must water from a well, once a day will do, till near lambing time and then always twice. -""mF iv Now as to feed: Sheep farmers al ways raise corn and they wish to feed some stalks in early winter, but they should be cut and cured early and fed once a day only, and at night feed hay; and supposing you to have fifty good ewes (and that is aU ever should be kept in one party, and twenty-five is better), feed at night one-fourth bushel of sound whole corn, and you may grad ually increase this feed so that by Jan uary 15 you are feeding one-half a bushel; after this time add good sound oats gradually, so that by February 15 you are feeding half a bushel of each per day and if you have good early cut line hay, natural meadow or clover hay, together with one bushel of carrots or roots of some sort, this is grain enough, and your sheep will not require a great amount of hay, and only feed just what they readily will take, as many farm ers make their sheep dainty by feeding too much hay; better keep them a little hungry for hay. And now about the care of your lambs: Have a frame or pen of hemlock boards, thirteen feet square in the yard, three boards high and the bottom one raised so the lambs can pass under (not the sheep) and in here have small troughs and sprinkle ground oats and corn, equal parts, and a little salt, and the lambs will soon learn to eat it, and continue this course till grass has a nice start and then tarn out your sheep aud lambs in the da3rtime and fair weather, ' bnt yard and grain at night till feed is flush and weather warm. About April 15 you will have some lambs fit for market, and by June 16 you should have them all sold. If your sheep have been well handled they will be fat and you can sell them for mutton and have your flock all dis posed of at a sharp advance on the cost by July 20, and the mutton sheep usually sell well at that time, and then buy a new flock for the coming winter in September. In this way you have a heavy fleece on wool, a valuable lamb and an advance of cost of sheep of from one to two dollars per head, a fine lot of manure and only a few or no sheep. In August and September the month's feed is shortest and they do the land most harm and with good care they al ways pay well. Farm Journal. FACTS ABOUT HORSES. Even in winter the horse is better for outdoor exercise. It is said that men working in livery stables are exempt from cholera. Because prices are low is no reason for starving or neglecting horses. The horse shows have done much to develop enthusiasm for fine horses. Abroad only geldings are used for city work and the brood mares are kept on the farm. Attempting to drive a smooth-shod horse over slippery, icy roads is the cause of many accidents. The manner in which a horse stands still is one of the best indications of soundness. If he stands with his legs straight and well under the body there is not much the matter with them. If he favors a limb or straddles before or behind, examine him carefully.- THE DAIRY BUSINESS. How a Bright Writer Looks Cpou Its Unancial Side. The following is the way a writer in oarci"s Dairyman puts the dairy busi ness: "A 4:pound cow is worth S-'JU; a 300-pound cow. 100; a 250-pound cow, 850; a 25-pound cow, S25; a 210-pouud cow, 811), while a 200-pound cow would just about pay her board, and wouhl just be worth taking as a gift. Now. suppose a cow will produce only 150 pounds of butter, the dairyman sus tains a loss of 810 every year lie keeps her; and should he buy such a cow to keep live years, he ought to get her as a present; and, in addition, she should have a $50 bank note pinned to each ear; even then the bargain would be a poor one, because this cow would oc cupy the room of one that would make a profit." While there is a little exag geration here, perhaps, the line of rea soning is sound. How much does it cost to test a cow and learn whether she is making or losing money for her owner? Are not nine-tenths of the cow-owners remiss and careless in this matter? If careless here, the farmer is careless in other matters; and gener al carelessness is what causes a major ity to cry "hard times." Kept Both Places. When the czar was made colonel of the Royal Scots Grays an officer of the regiment said to his orderly; "Donald, have you heard that the new emperor of Russia has been appointed colonel of the regiment?" "Indeed, sir," replied Donald, "it is a vera prood thing." Then, after a pause. ' Beg pardon, sir, bat wull he be able to keep both places?" Correct Measurement. Some six years ago there lived in the city of X a rather eccentric old man, remarkable for his shrewdness, who kept a pork shop. Three young fellows, thinking to have some fun with him, entered his shop one night and asked what his pork was a yard. The old man promptly replied: "One dol lar." One of the young men then said: "111 take a yard." "Where is your money?" said the old man. The dollar was laid down, which the old man quickly pocketed, and then produced three pig's feet, with the remark: "Three feet make one yard." Notice to Voters.
