Handsome Country House.
For persons who would- like something
jtylish and attractive in a country residence,
the accompanying design has been prepared.
It is a picture of a new house lately erected
In New Jersey. It is not a cheap house,
exactly, the cost being $5,'JtlJ.
It is conidtr'd a very handsome hou?a
A range, furnace, bath room, plumbing and
drainage ore Included in the cost. The
bouse has co uiecte I with it, however, in the
original plan the old-fashioned cesspool and
privy vuult, which is a little surprising in
these days of earth and sawdust closets
for country houses. That part of the plan
could be modilL-d and an earth closet con
structed for less cost.
The hruse is built of wood. The first story
bas a bard w o.l fl or. The woodwork in
side is of white piue. A slate roof covers
Th9 furnace is In the cellar. Gag pipes
are put in. For the country these, of course,
would be left out.
Tbe opinion of a woman whose husband
has a good garden:
Does a garden par? What a fo lish ques
tion! Of course it pays. It pays better than
any other part of the farm. Why? Because
so much can be grown in it that the family
can make available at all seasons of the year.
It isn't a mere summer institution, this gar
den of ours. When summer ended wa bad
vegetab'es to use tbe same as we had during
tbe growing season, for we alway raised
enough to last until garden stuff grows
again. Think of tbe variety the garden gives
our bid of fare: Corn, cabbage, tomatoes,
lettuce, cucumbers, parsnips, squashes
onions, salsify, Lean, beets, turnips, rad
ishes why, if you were a woman with a
family to cook for, and you wanted some
thing to make a change with, you'd see
where tbe a 1 vantage of having a girden
cams in. Wi n these veget;bl.s to draw
frctu a woman can so vary the bill of fare
from diy to day that tbe mea folks won't be

have to buy if we had no garden.
The opinion of the man who doesn't have
Do I have a garden! Not muth! Catch
me puttering 'round in one. I'd rather go
down to the corner and sit 'round the grocery

the seed, and half won't come up, and what

If she did we'd "spring out" with a better

Sorting Sheep at Shearing Time.

know a poor sh"op w hen he s"os it. That is
to say, ho hat?? to throw i-, out Thero is
nothing on a farm which is so poor a piece
of i roporty as a poor sheep. A light weight
steer may mnko as good beef as a heavy
weicht, or better, nnd it may be nearly or
quite as profltablo an animal. But a light
flerc d shyep gennral'y eats as much as a
heavy fWeed on", nnd often more, b cause
it is Icrey and re'-tless.
When freshly shorn the sheep stands re

method was to have a pair of grocer's scales.
on ons side of which was fastened a very
light slat framswork, largo enough to re
ceive tbe fWce, and this was balanced by
bits of iron, nnd tbe scale set so asi to re
quire a six-pound fl'?ece to turn it. When
ever a shearer flnUhod a slwp I took it
while he carried and laid tho neeoe
on the scales, nnd upon th:s test,
together with my own observations
upon the animal's form, 1 affixed a mark
with red lead to designate tho sheen's
future. A wether was marked with the let
ter P on the left shoulder, the top of tho let
ter reaching the snino, to prevent the sheep
from rubbing it off ngainst hU fellows. A
ewe received the sme letter on its left hip.
A sheep of either sex dost'ned to be reject d
from the flock was marked with a cipher, 0,
on the right hip. My full bloods had Dana's

Next to Hue. schools and churches, ol
paramount Importance to a community
comes good roads In fact the two foruitr
depend ou the latter, In a measure, for their
very existence. We unfortunately live In
a section where the public highways are
execrable; quite likely they are as bad in
other portions of the country, though hard
ly worse than here In Southern Maryland.
Their management Is about equally faulty,
a complaint pretty general against all who
have the welfare of the roads under their
supervision, liow easy we all kuow to
point 6ut a grievance or fault, but how very
difficult to name or apply a remedy! The
general public must bear the chief
blame, and their apathy an disinterestedness
Is hard to account for. In the first place we
have not adequate laws, either general o
local, to accomplish tbe ideal highway ; and
the few we have, ordinary .civilians are
unacquainted with, aud those in authority
act as if they needed an Introduction.
A fine road is self-evldently necessary
even to the most obtuse person, for wild as
well as cultivated land ; but the combined
qualifications of shade aud good, cheap
roads, In these all clay or all sand sections,
is the problem demanding our serious at
tention. Much cannot be made by a small
expenditure, neither can those living on
farms of like soil be sutlicieutly taxed to
accomplish this desired end; but one thing
they (the adjoining land owners) can do to
help the gord cause; that is to give to the
roads enough of this poor land for roadbed.
and shade, say 40 feet (which will be ample
for all country roads iu this section), 21 lor
the road bed and 10 for ditches (when nec
essary) and shade trees. Twenty-four feet
gives rootu to travel in new mts as soon as
any one becomes worn too deeply ; this, wltii
the present disbursements and the mending
they now get, will give the inoyt satisfnet
Ion to the general public In this sandy sec
ond district of Anne Aruuciel County.
One great trouble with our roads is that
there is often but one track, aud not smIHc-
lent room for another (iu some places it has
the lawful width between fences, and bush
es and briers have encroached upon the
track until the wheels of the wagon drag
against the bushes ou the shies while aguiu
we may lind the fences only 20 feet apart,
or else some embankment has been cut
through with only sullicient room for one
track,) and all teams are therefore compell
ed to use the single track, whose ruts be
come deep and icregular from the constant
travel, where, if tlw roads were properly
widened all public highways should be
kept the lawful width and higher in the
centre, vehicles would avoid the deep ruts
long enough for them to fill up naturally.
Our land makes poor road beds from the
nature of the soil. Where sand predomin
ates, It is almost as bud as all clay, though
the former is always passable, while the
latter, during a protracted wet spell; cannot
be used ; neither can it be made into good
road beds without great labor and expense,
and in pocr sections land averaging three
barrels of corn to the acre It Is an i in possi
bility, without outside help, to do much to
ward a perfect road. The shape of a per
fect road bed, which has been often stated,
should be a convex surface (between para
llel lines,) like the segment of a large cir
cle. These coarse, sandy roads, as we have
them In the lower half ol this second dist
rict, are tine enough In winter or when wet,
but becomes wretched In mid summer, or
when very. dry. As this sand Is so easily
displaced, allowing the wheels to sink, it
causes a team to draw at least three times
as hard; that Is, where on a solid, smooth
road bed, a horse could pull a ton, iiera 700
or 800 lbs. would lie a big load, and besides,
the grinding action of the hot, diy road
upon tires and rims sooin ruin the best
wheels. In very warm weather the steel
or iron ties expand (as we all know) more
than the wooden fellies, causing an ititerst
Ice and this Is speedily filled with sand,
which soon increases the breach, liually
compelling the cutting of the ties to save
the wheel. The moie shade, the longer
this sand remains damp, and moisture
counteracts the expansion of tires by swell
ing the rims and lessening the heat; than
aliundent shade is the best for these roads.
Where they are all clay, or clay in excess,
then during a wet spell they become like
putty, the wheels sinking to the hub, and
are then the worst roads jxissible, though
tliey never wea.' and injute the rims and
tires as the former, and ttiey become excell
ent In mid-summer, or when dry. Shade.,
therefore, for this latter soil is slightly in
jurious, but with proper distances between
the trees, or grouping and keeping them
well trimmed, this cun be mitigated, ami
with sufficiently wide road tied, entirely
counteracted. "e do not want bushes and
briers for shade, but large trees with trunks
without limbs for'JO feet t more (and il
we p rmit these to be entwined now nnd
then by our Virginia creeper, bitter sweet,
and native clematis, that are so very abund
ant along our roads, so much nmre pleasing
will the sight be,) so that the air can freely
circulate over the road bed.
The limits of the public highway, w llh
few exceptions, are undefined, and unless
interested parties agree to allow the centre
of the present road to be the true one, as a
base to ascertain 'lie correct boundary, it will
cause considerable trouble nnd expense to
locate the lawful meter satisfactorily.
Many buyers of land on the public mtu's,
when they come to remove or repair their
fences on said roads, will encroach upon
the 80 feet allowed by law Instead of gi-lng
out, thereby gaining a little land to the
great detriment of the traveling public.
Supervisors should lie Instructed to demand
the removal of all fences that infringe em
the said road's lawful :?0 feet. Nowhere
comes a grave difficulty, for, as I said above,
the boundaries are undefined ; so who can
tell when a land owner does encoach, unless
twenty years, peaceful use by the public
makes the present track lawful. With the
present 30 feet allowed by law, it is difficult
to save the shade trees, but the judicious
supervisor (duly adrised with written in
struction, not oral) can save many of our
fine native trees still left on some of the
roads say 20 feet for road bed (which Is
not sullicient for a good double track.) two
feet on each side of roadbed for ditches,
when necessary, making 21 feet. We have
left 6 feet for shade 'rees, a feet on each
side, which Is barely enough for their
trunks. The roads should not be less than
40 feet, as mentioned above, or even 50.
Trees should bo trimmed to make climb
ing llflicult, and so that the lower branches
will be well out of the way of hay w agons,
and It would be well for them even to inter
hx k acrojss the road, If possit le.to preclude
the sun's rays, here almost vertical. Cwinl
