Considerable Interest has ln-cn mani fested of late in the Japan chestnut, which hiw thus far seemed to thrive, better here ' than other members, of tho European chestnut family (castanea vesca). I Our nurserymen generally are ready to speak a good word for this tree, and nre recommending it, not only for its fruit, , but oa a pleasing object on the lawn. The picture here given is an atumruDic representation or. one of ten burs that were tho first to ripen in lastsca tton's crop at the Monmouth nurse ry, Uttlo Silver, N. J., where the Japan chestnut haa been tested along with other foreign varieties. The cut shows a h ii r rruit.ninlni? three nut, and JAPAN CHESTVCT. may lc considered as an average specimen, though some bun contain as many na six nuts. Iu regard to this tree Mr. Lovelt, pro prietor of tho nursery where tho burr shown in tho cut was crown, says: "Tho tree seems to 1ms a good and thrifty grower and nicely fitted for a place on the lawn, us it branches out low and forms a close compact head. It should he understood, however, that the Japan chestnut varies as much in size of tree and nut and in bearing quality as our native sweet chest nut or the English walnut." About the fruit of this tree Mr. IOvett very frankly says that it is neither as brittle, tender nor sweet as our native chestnut. Hut since, when roast!, it compares favorably in quality with tho Spanish chestnut so largely sold in cities, ho has no doubt but that the Japan chestnut crop, if produced in this country, ...... , - 4 J - - y - . . would find ready sale for the purposes of he now Imported Spanish nut and prove profitable to tho producer. The great advantage the Japan chest nut has over other foreign varieties of the chestnut family seems to be. its more dwarfish luibit of growth, remarkably early fruiting, its apparent hardiness, which so far appears to be equal to our native chestnuts. Practical Sheep Culture. Statistics make It appear that medium wool commands a U-tter price now than tine wool. In consideration of this fact a Michigan sheen breeder, at the late meet ing of tho American Merino Sheep Kegis ter nssiK-lation, advices: First, the com mon breeder ol the native rante r raising sheep for the market couple his (lock of coarse wool ewes with a good selection of thoroughbred merino rams, ami thereby increase the weight and Improve the qual ity of llcccc w ithout decreasing the weight of the carcass. In eros-sititt the brooder further advises lliat no one l-e led by any false notions of economy to u.sc anything but a thorough bred sire on tho (liK-k. In case one owns tho common natives of tho country, the uso of a well bred sire is all the more im portant, for nowhere else will the evi dence of his jxiwer to transmit his charac teristics ! seen than on common stock. The experiment of crossing coarse wool rams on fine wool owes produces disss-j trous failures, the result being, so fur as I ho work In concerned, a grade not desir- J able, owing to its variety. Tho result is generally a light, dry, tough wool to cut, I and frequently a surface on the sheep of little fine wrinkles, over which it is diffi cult to shear. In consldoring the subject of public ' shearing matches, and tho infatuation for producing a heavy fleece without due re Kard to quality, this Michigan grower lie lie.ved that the ambition to produce heavy fleece cannot receive too much encourage ment, provided the standard of excellence can at the same time lie improved; then, and not until then, should this depart ment of the enterprise le considered worthy of attention. For what can be tho object in producing twenty-live tr thirty pounds of wool which shrink so much in cleansing that fewer jiounds oi desirable wool nre obtained than from a lighter fleece that lias gained greater lencrth of staple. It is often the caw1 that douse, short and very oily tleeee weigh.' more than another that will cleanse out a greater quantity of wool of superior quality. New Intentions in Hitrre's. Numbered with novel productions in way of barrels is a ventilated Imrrel intro duced to public notice by Isaac A.Kerr, of Muscatine, la., the inventor. This package is descrilied by those who have seen it a a bulging barrel, having Its aides constructed of st raight parallel edged staves or sluts, conve.xed longitudinally. The staves are secured by woven wires iu IKxsHion to form between the staves, ven tilating openings enlarged from the ends to the middle of the barrel. There is an inner sTvious lining adapted to admit ventilation through the ojenings. -jr M HM, r.WK HAiu:i:i..

The advantages of the Jerseys over other breeds, according to Tho Live Stock Monthly, are; 1. Jerseys make more butter annually, compared with the food they eat, than any other breed. 2. Jerseys make better butter than any other breed better grain and better flavor. it. Jersey milk is the most profitablo becanse it contains more butter jkt quart than that of any other breed, it cream rises quicker and its butter comes quicker. 4. Jersey butter brings from two to ten cents more a pound than any other, as a rule, throughout the United tat; hence, on ninety farms out of a hundred where butter is a specialty the introduction of Jersey Mixxl will change butter making from a dead loss to a net profit. 5. Mutter farming is more profitable, healthful and refined than truck farming, beef farming, poultry or pig raising. 6. Tor every cent lost on account of the Jersey's small carauw, there are t wo cents gained on account of her better butter and larger annual yield. Wo want llolstcJus and Ayrshires for 1 the general cheese and milk supply, we want Shorthorns and Hereford for their beef, but the country want the- Jersey for her butter so let us have an end to the opposition which this hrtwl haa met with for forty years. lie who ppeeinlisos wins. The "general purpose cow" is an impowibl animal. Let each farmer de cide whether all circumstances point to a leef, a milk or a butter breed, and cbooeo his stock accordingly. iool Ciller Vinegar.

My first thought I cannot doserile, for the vines were set with an abundant crop of frutf.. A deci t,ion to stop the ravages at. once was quickly formed, as the use of sulphide of potassium occurred to me. Therefore, at l o'clock next morning I went into the vinery with a pound of the snl-J phide. I ut a quarter of an ounce into two gallons of water and commenced to j syrinw the vines. As soon as I had gone all over them with the solution I com Mcnccd to wash the foliage with clear i water by turning it on through the hose, in order to lo set tire against any evil that i might occur from too great strcnt'th.

Some fishes have pectoral fins, as those upon the chest are termed, so lurge that by means of them they are sustained in what ap peal's a short flight through the air, and to such the name of flying fc-h haa been given. Whether these fishes really use their fins as wings is a question not yet decided. Some observers maintain that thoy do, though only for so long a time, of course, as the fins re main moibt. Many Authorities in natural history are, however, of opinion that the wingtt simply act like a parachute or kito, sustaining the fish after it has leaped into the Air. There aro more than thirty dintinct speck of flying fish. Two sjiocios have been occa sionally seen off tho British coast, one is com mon in the Mediterranean sea. And Ave have been found along our own shores; but in general they are most abundant in the warmer waters of the tropics. Tho accompanying cut represents a specie of this interesting fish. A flight of flying fish forms one of the mot pleasant of the strange sptvtacles that from time to time enliven the tedium of a voyage through tropicAl seas. The fish swim in shoaU of a dozen to a hundred or more, aim! whole shoal often leave the water, darting in tho same direction through the Air and, after descending into tho water At a distance of 200 yards or more from the place where they rose, quickly renewing their flight. Sometimes tho dolphin pursues them, taking great leiqie out of tho water and gaining upon his prey, which take shorter and shorter flights until at last they sink exhausted. Sometimes the larger sea birds catch flying fishes while they are in tho air. It does not rt.viNO Kisit. oem ti lw true that these llshes leave the water merely to escajH' from danger, as is sometimes supposi-d, but they apjiear, rather, to exerci.so their powers, like other creatures, very often from mere delight, in possessing them and from the exuberance of their happiness.
