Prepared by the United 6tat«a Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Sheep raising offers one of the most
j»ttractive opportunities In the live
stock Industry at the present time.
jThere Is a demand for purebred sheep
Cor breeding, and for mutton and wool.
iOne of the best ways to create Interest
In sheep raising Is to teach the subject
properly to boys In the secondary
schools. Is the opinion of a specialist
In agricultural education with the
United State« department of agricul
ture. Many rural districts of the Unit
ed States are not awake to the oppor
tunity connected with sheep raising,
declares this specialist. In Introducing
a new publication of the department,
Bulletin 693. "Judging Sheep as the
Subject of Instruction In the Second
ary School."
Much can be done toward arousing
an interest not only among the boys
but among the fanners of a community

by a well-ordered course of Instruction
which permits not only class instruc
tion but also allows the boys to do
their own laboratory work by keeping
a few sheep at home on their own ac
Confining a study of stock Judging to
purebred animals may furnish a good
foundation for the training of a show
room Judge, says the writer of the pub
lication, but It does not give the train
ing needed by ninny farmers in the
corn belt and other territory adjacent
to the large markets where feeder
sheep are purchased and fattened. A
knowledge of types of purebreds grown
In the community is helpful, but It Is
Important for the farmer to know th»
classifications and demands of the mar
ket buyers. This knowledge can be
given to the pupils only by studying
market classes and grades. In each
community Instruction which will be
helpful in meeting the practical prob
lems common to the particular form
of the Industry practiced in the com
munity should be given. In connec
tion with this study visits to packing
houses and stock yards conducted by
the instructor may be made very prof
itable features of the study. It Is said.
Always Tendency Among Pige to Pile
Up In Bed for Purpoee of Keeping
Warm in Winter.
" During cold weather there Is always
B tendency for pigs to pile up in their
bed for the purpose of keeping warm.
Then some of them will become heated
up, and when they are routed out and
become exposed to the cold weather
many of them will contract pneumonia.
Once this disease attacks a pig It near*
;ly always causes death. If death do s

Her Joys and Sorrows, but
Patriotism Cams First
"Something unexpected has hap
pened," said Mr. Billtops. "Something
quite unexpected.
"You know, for years I have been giv
ing Mrs. Billtops all my bright money.
Whenever I got a bright dime or quar
ter of half I simply turned It over to
Mrs. Billtops.
'There might be weeks when 1
would not get a single bright coin;
but there would be other weeks In
which I would receive In change a
considerable number. Altogether these
bright coins provided for Mrs. B. a
tidy bit of revenue, and I am sure It
was as great a pleasure for me to turn
them over to Mrs. Billtops as It was
for her to receive them, though once
this bright money proposition did give
me a little scare.
"I dropped Into a candy store one
day to get some cundy for Mrs. Bill
tops and there In change for a $5 bill
I received two bright dimes and four
absolutely spick and span bright new
$1 bills!
"Well, now, there was something to
make you stop and think. Under our
understanding I wa6 to give Mrs. Bill
tops ail 'bright money.' It is true that
by that I understood bright coins, and
I had no doubt thut Mrs. Billtops did,
too, but the promise from me was of
all 'bright money' and on u strict In
terpretation, which I did not desire to
evade, there was nothing for me to do
but to turn over with the two bright
dimes those four bright dollars. Which
I did.
"But Mrs. Billtops declined to re
"But Mrs. Billtops declined to re
ceive them.
" 'No, Ezra,' she said, *no. We both
understood bright money to mean
bright coins, and we will go not by
the letter of the contract but by the
spirit. Ezra, you keep the $4.'
"Which I did, and I was always glad
she settled it that way, for the oppo
site Interpretation of my obligation
might sometimes have subjected me to
considerable Inconvenience.
"Suppose I should some day have
gone Into a candy store and laid down
not a $5 bill but a $1,000 bill and re
ceived In change $999.20 all In bright
money, which by the contract I should
have been required to turn over to
Mrs. Billtops. Why, I have seen the
time when handing over that amount
of money In that way would have
cramped me quite 6ome.
"But never have I failed to hand
over all bright coins, year after year
continuously, until yesterduy, when
that something unexpected happened
when Mrs. Billtops said to me:
" 'Ezra, no more bright money,
have always been glad to get It for
the sentiment of It and for the use I
could make of It, but you need the
money more now and from now on you
keep It and use It as you would any
other money and I will deny myself
that luxury. No more bright money,

still It was only what you would have
expected her to do, If you knew Mrs.
Food—After the War.
Whatever other blessings peace may
bring It will not bring instant relief to
the masses who are now distressed by
food shortage and its natural conse
quence, high prices. There will be as
many mouths to feed when the armies
are demobilized as there are now. It
is true that the fare of the soldiers In
most European countries Is more lib
eral than that of the civil population,
but no statesman will take comfort in
the prospect of masses of disbanded
soldiers reduced to the level of civil
undernourishment. And besides the
civil populations that are now endur
ing semi-starvation uncomplainingly,
recognizing that no relief can be ex
pected while the energies of their gov
ernment are engrossed by war, will be
far less patient when peace returns.
More food, not less, will be required

Patch Skull With Patient'» Own Ribn
The replacing of destroyed portions
of skull with layers of cartilage taken
from the patient's own ribs is one
of the latest methods of healing war
Injuries. H. Warren Woodroffe, sur
geon of the Ulster Volunteer hospital
In France, describes the method which
has been successfully tried on a num
ber of severely wounded men.
Cutting down to the ribs parallel to
the breast bone, the surgeon slices off
thin layers of the cartilage which at
taches the bony ribs to the breast
bone. These are held in the gap
caused by the destruction of the skull
after the scalp has been turned back.
The scalp is then stitched back In place.
Within a few weeks. Instead of having
no protection to the underlying brain,
a hard layer of cartilage, firm though
slightly elastic, Is formed.

Britain Lean* to Decimal Syatem.
The movement In England looking
toward the adoption of the decimal
system for currency, which has the
backing of the Associated Chafiibers of
Commerce of the United Kingdom, is
gaining ground. The London Statist
states that the association has resolved
to press the matter upon the attention
of the government and to urge the In
troduction of a bill In parliament. It
Is proposed to retain the sovereign as
standard value of a thousand mills, the
half sovereign 500 mills, the four shil
ling piece 200 mills, the two-shilling
piece or florin 100 mills, the half
florin, commonly known us the shilling,
50 mills, and the sixpence 25 mills. Of
subsidiary coinage it Is recommended
to coin ten-mill pieces and five-mill
pieces. Below these It is suggested
that a four-mill, three-mill and two-mill
piece also be coined, and If found de
sirable a coin representing one mill.
As the farthing Is so little used it Is
not regarded as likely that anything
below the value of a half penny will be
The Kitchen In War Time.
The private kitchen has got to go.
It Is scarcely possible to doubt that
now. With gas and fuel at their pres
ent prices, and likely to mount stead
ily higher, the great majority, as winter
advances, will certainly be driven to
living In one room. The economy ef
fected by that simple measure will be
enormous, and It entails no very se
rious hardship, given a satisfactory ar
rangement of the cooking problem.
That problem could be practically
solved tomorrow by the voluntary sur
render, even In a very limited degree,
of the domestic isolation In which the
British family lives. If every two
households agree to dine together only,
It would be more than half solved. It
Is a matter in which the merits of a
voluntary system over any compulsory
arrangement are more obvious even
than usual. But If the public contin
ues to set its face obstinately against
It, the compulsion will certainly come.

Absorbent Cotton Twice Used.
Through the Ingenuity of a French
chemist who was struck by the fact
that in the military hospitals of Paris
alone about 4,400 pounds of absorbent
cotton was used dally, a process has
been developed which makes It possi
ble to use soiled cotton a second time.
The first step Is the removal of all
grease by boiling ten or twelve hours
In a soda solution, or by treating it
under pressure for three hours in a
sealed container filled with the same
solution. After this the cotton is thor
oughly washed In a machine and all
the moisture removed by placing It In
a high-speed centrifugal drier. Drying
is followed by bleaching with hypo
chlorine of lime and a second washing
and drying. Finally the purified pro
duct Is carded, packed and again ster
ilized.—Popular Mechanics Magazine.
