As Explained by A. M. Paterson, Katv aaa Agricultural College, Manhat tan, Kansas. After the nock has been turned on pasture, it will' require very little attention. The successful sheepman will, however, not neglect his sheep at this time. little care and obser vation on the part of the owner as to the comfort and health of thes animals often very materially increases his profits in this business. If the pasture Is abundant, they will need no other feed, with the possible exception of very thin old ewes that are nursing lambs. A little grain to such ewes will aid in building up the ewe's body and will Increase the flow of milk, thus making a much better lamb. Great care should be exercised when the nock is first turned on grass. At this time when the grass is succulent and palatable there is great danger of the sheep over eating. This may cause bloat and often results In death. It is well to fire the sheep an abun dant supply of dry feed before turning them on the new grass, allowing them to stay on pasture only a short time at first, gradually Increasing the length of Urns ef pasturing until they become accustomed to the new feed. Then practically all danger Is past Oar should be taken not to turn the sheep out when the grass is damp at this season. Clean, fresh water and salt should be before the sheep at all times. By mixing some sulphur with the salt an excellent tonic may be made. Do not give the sulphur until the weather is warm, as it has a ten dency to open the pores of the skin;, If given in cold weather the sheep are liable to catch cold. A mistake that is made a great many times is taking the grata away from the lambs when they are turned on grass. . Some arrangement should be made for the continued feeding of some grain to the lambs, as by so do ing the lambs will be larger, in better condition and will be ready to market quicker, which means larger profits. Lambs should be weaned whea about four months' old. Much, of oooree, depends upoa the site of the lambs and the condition of the ewes. In cases where the-ewes are poor and ran tfowa and tha lambs large and growth It may be well to wean earlier in order, to build up the condltoa of the ewes before breeding. . In oases where tne opposite condition prevails the lambs may net bo weaned win later.

It is a truism to say that the Isth mus of Panama 13 the strategic key to the zoological relations of North md South America, and yet it is not necessarily so, as other lines of com munication iriight conceivably have been established. So far as our knowledge extends, however, the geographical events in the history ot the isthmus dominated the bio logical interrelations of the conti nents which it now unites. When the isthmus was submerged, South America was in a state of nearly or quite isolation, and . developed a liighly peculiar fauna, few elements of which were shared with any other t.'ontinent, and which was as unique in its way, though on a higher plane, as is the Australian. It was, so to speak, a highly interesting experi ment in evolution; a great conti nent, with varied climate and a great diversity of conditions, mountains and valleys, forests and open plains, left through long ages entirely to its own resources, was the closed arena of rapid development divergent from the rest of the world. The result is plainly obvious now. Thoughe the elevation of Central America and the isthmus into land joined Noto- iea with the northern continent, and the way of migration thus opened led to an extensive infusion of northern elements in the south ern fauna, South America still re mains, after Australia, the most pe culiar region of the earth.

"You always pay, you . know," said the forger, Whiteman, who was captured recently . in Cincinnati, after years of liberty aa a fugitive from justice. Sure you do. Whether you vio late man's law or nature's law, which is another name for God's law, you always have to pay, and the full rice, too. Some pay, as Whiteman In, in (lodging and slinking through the world like a hunted beast, his mind worried, his face gradually iking, on a furtive look, knowing always that sonwwhere ahead lay the steel-jawed trap all set and ready. Some pay with broken health; others with broken hearts; some sur render friends and love; some give all in life worth living for; some cast their conscience -tc be gnawed by the wolves of remorse-;: some not only pay their own share inf- full, but shift par? of the burden to their chil dren, even to the third and fourth generation; for the- debt must be paid to the last farthing.
