Thcbs are three classes of Yorkshire
breeds of pigs the large, the middle,

Tus autumn-sown grains, both wheat
and rye, have deeper roots and a longer

cereals, ana are better able than the lat

Thi superior fattening quality of a
pasture, as compared with that of the
hay made from it. is clearly due to the
fact that on land continuously grazed
the animal is fed on young herbage,
while hay will always consist of the fully
grown plant. "
Bottcr, when worked should never
exceed a temperature of sixty degrees,
as a higher point caures the butter to
gravitate towards stickiness. When
worked at too low a point, the butter
becomes mealy and the texture is de
stroyed. Blood readily decomposes in the soil,
yielding ammonia and nitrio acid. Wool
and hair decomposes much more slowly,
and their effect is spread over many
years. Dried blood is an excellent
manure for wheat Wool and hair are
sometimes used for hops.
Alcoholic fermentation gonerated in

by Dr. Van Tieghem to be often the

the remedy recommended.

A ocbio foot of ensilage weighs from
forty to fifty pounds, and a daily ration for
a cow is fifty to sixty pounds. One and
a half cubio feet makes a cow's ration
for a day. A silo ten feet deep, ten feet

sufficient for two cows for three hundred

for half tne year.
On thb Island of Jersey cows with
white horns are not looked upon with
favor. The yellow horn, tipped with
black, is considered a much richer
milker than the white horn ; while the
crumpled horn is there now, as it was
nearly a century ago, a favorite form.
This latter is a short horn, turning in a
enrve across the head to near its centre,
drooping somewhat from base to tip.
Yotrno grass is mnch richer in nitro
genous substances, also in fat, and con
tains a smaller proportion of indigesti
ble fibre than older grass, and Is conse
quently more nourishing. The same
comparison may be made between young
clover and that which is allowed to ma
ture for hay. Hay should always be cut
as soon as full bloom is reached, since
aftor this point the qnality of the crop
will materially deteriorate.
A laroa part of the elements of plant
food contained in soil is present in such
a condition that plants are unable to
make use of it. A soil may contain many
thousand pounds of phosphoric acid or
of nitrogen and yet be in poor condition.
One of the agricultural problems of the
future will be to learn the exact sub
stance to apply to soils for the purpose
of liberating the elements of plant food
locked up, or unavailable.
A wool and wheat-grower says : " It
is my belief that the real reason why
mr wheat crops only yield half as much
as the English crop is, that in England
fanners utilize sheep as grain-growers,
while we only consider them wool and
mutton-makers. I have even heard an
essay on 'Sheep as the Scavengers of
the Form,' meaning probably pickers-np
nf tineonnideted trifles in the form of
weeds. Now, though I object entirely
to sheep being graded as ssavengers, I,
with admirable . inconsistency, admire
them greatly in the office of dung-carriers,
that is, feeding on heavy lands, or
rm crops which cannot be profitably nsed
in some other way. Sheep fed upon
linseed or cortoa-seed-meal will distrib
ute the elements of fertilization con
tuned in theao food which they do not
economize, and deposit them where the
wheat was wanted to grow. j
Halt ron Skxzp. Salt will be taken
with avidity by sheep while on grass.
Where arrangements can be made, it
will bo found convenient to have salt in
little troughs at different points about
the sleeping grounds. These should be
so sheltered as to be protected from rain,
and elevated so that the sheep can get
at them only with their heads. They
will soon loarn to visit these troughs
when desiring salt, and if allowed con
stant acoess to them, are in no danger
of taking too much. The more common
riKtom is to distribute salt at regular
intervals over the ground, on or near the
range, whence it will be taken up a few
minutes after being found. Under these
circumstances it should be given often
enough to avoid restlessness in the flock
on the approach of the sheperd, tad so
scattered as to allow every animal ready
sccess. Intervals of five days have been
found quite satisfactory, though the
sheperd should be guided in this, as in
other details, bv the apparent necessity
frf his surroundings. Some experienced
sheperds mix sulpher in small quantity
with salt, though the majority do not
.use it.
A Green MAirtmnta Plaht. As the
subject of recuperating the soil now
ranks among the foremost with the cul-
. tivators, ana is one which is constantly
reaching for the aid of scientific research,
' any suggestions or opinions bearing
upon the same are generally accorded a
large share of attention. We give be
low an extract from a paper by C E.
Thome, connected with the Ohio State
University : For several years I have
noticed that some thrifty plants of Mel
lotos alba were the sol oeonpanU of a
plot of clay subsoil as hard as the floor
of a brick-yard, from which the surface
had been washed away, but the peculiar
significance of this habit was not im
pressed upon me until during a recent
drive over a newly made road, I saw this
same plant growing upon the bare clay
of the road-side, whenoe the soil had
been scraped in making the road-side,
and where even white clover was making
but a scant living although the melilot
was already as tall as the red clover on
the fertile soil of the neighboring field.
The plant otherwise known as Bokhara
or sweet-scented clover has become
naturalized here at a comparatively re
cent date, but has lontr been known as a
forage plant both for cattle and bees,
being well adapted for soiling, as it
makes a growth of four to six feet dur
ing the season and it is said to bear two
or three cuttings ; while its sweet-scented
blossoms afford a favorite pasture for
the honey gatherers. The German anal
ysis gives to its hay a feeding value of
$15 per ton, against $16.28 for "very
good red clover hay, while its habit of
growth is such that I should expect it to
yield a much heavier crop than red clo
ver. But without discussing the value
of the melilot as a foliage plant, the ob
servations I have noted indicate that we
may possibly find in it a counterpart of
the Southern cowpen as a recuperator of
exhausted soils, and at the same time
find it better adapted to our climate and
circumstances than the cowpen. As it
grows muoh more rapidly than red clo
ver, whether from the seed or from the
root, and seems to thrive so well on ster
ile soils, apparently growing by prefer
ence in such places, it would seem well
worthy of trial as a green-manunug
crop. A further reason lor a more gen
eral examination of the merits of the
melilot than has yet been made in this
country, is the probable failure of the
rod clover from the depredations of the
European clover beetle, which according
to the statements of Professor Barnard,
in the report of the Cornell University
Experiment Station, is already threaten
ing the total destruction of that crop in
tome sections of New York.
Conductors and Bogus Coin.
"Some of 'em's made of lead.
know," said a street-car conductor, apol
ogetically, as he pocketed a silver half
dollar, after giving it a vigorous scrape
with his steel punch. "Some of 'em
lead and some of 'em brass ; so we have
to look sharp. It's easy enough to tell
the lead half-dollars by scraping 'em
with the punch, but you never know a
bras coin until the silver is worn off
from the outside."
" Where do the bad coins come from ?"
was aked.
"That's more'n I know where they
come from in the first place. It's mostly
women that give 'em to us. Yon see
when a man gets hold of a bad half
dollar, be don't feel just like passing it
off himself, so he just gives it to his
wife and don't say anything alxrat it.
And even if she does know tho piece is
bad, it doesn't make a mite of difference.
A womui, young man, is one of the
the queerest things in the world one of
the quee-e-e-rest things in the world. I
often stop and any to mvself : ' Well,
now, what in thunder did she do that
for?' A woman 1ms no idea of other
people's rights at all. So, when she gets
hold of a bad half-dollar, she just
naturally passes it off agnin. Dishoneot 1
Why, bless you, no, she doesn't mean
to do anything dishonest ; it's just her
natur ; she can't help it. : She don't
want the half-dollar of course she
don't so there is just one thing fo do,
and that is to pass it off on some one
el- o. But you have to be powerful care
ful how you treat a woman. Some of
'em want you to help 'em on the car,
now, and others won't let you touch 'em.
So either way yon do, you are sure to
make half of 'em mad. I stopped the
car it was only yesterday morning to
let a woman get off; gave her plenty of
time, snd she got both feet on the
ground, then the car started; but she
wanted it to wait until she was a yard
sway, so what does she do but jump on
again, and make the car come to a dead
stop. There is no accountin' for 'em no
"Most of them go by the elevated
road now, do they not ?
" Yes, a good many of 'em do. Before
the elevated road was built I used to
carry the girls to the Normal School
every morning. They used to come ail
st once, so many of them they had to sit
in one another's laps. That mode
four rows, and I just tell you they
looked as fresh and sweet as a casket of
peaches all ranged in rows. But I don't
see much of 'em now."
" You regret that, I suppose ?"
" Well, now, I don't know. I'd rather
carry a car full of men any day. They
know what a conductors business is,
and don't get mad for nothing. They
give us fewer counterfeits, too. Why, I
have a glass dollar up at the house now
that a woman gave me. I was a fool to
take it, but 1 11 pass it off on some man
again. When the car is pretty dark
they won't notice it. You see they're
not used to it, as I am. New York tri

Substitutes for Wood.
Year by year other materials are be
ing substituted for wood in the erection
of dwellings and buildings of all kinds,
in the construction of bridges, fences
and sidewalks, in the manufacture of
carriages, agricultural implements and
furniture, for producing heat for cooking
and warming dwellings, and for generat
ing steam. In many parts of the coun
try it is quite as cheap to erect buildings
of brick or stone as of wood, though the
time required is somewhat longer.
Within the post five years boards have
given place to wire in building farm
fences, and in ten years more wooden
fence posts will give place to those of
stone, cement or iron. Wood is rapidly
going out cf use as a material for hoops
for barrels and other forms of cooper's
ware, and, indeed, barrels and casks of
any kind are giving way to other kinds
of packages for holding other substances
than liquids. Wooden pavements are-
now generally condemned in all large
cities, and wooden sidewalks will soon
share their fate. Recently baskets made
of strip-iron for picking cotton, gather
ing potatoes and harvesting fruit have
been introduced. They are light, clean,
very serviceable and comparatively cheap.
Furniture mode of metal or stone is fast
displacing that manufactured from wood.
Wood supports are still used lor rail
way tracks, but it is likely that a substi
tute for them in some form of metal or
stone will be found before trees can be
grown of sufficient size to convert into
ties. Not only sea-going steamers and
vessels are made of iron, but many
smaller boats are constructed of the same
material. With the exception of steam
boats navigating rivers and lakes whose
banks and shores are lined with forests,
or locomotives running through sections
of the country that are heavily wooded,
there is no longer a demand for wood for
generating steam. No one will question
the excel'ence of a wood lire, whether it
bums in a stove or open grate, but it is
no longer economical in most places,
even if the material to support it can be
obtained at a comparatively low price.
Wood is bulky, while coal . is compact.
The former requires considerable prepa
ration before it can be used, while the
latter needs none. Much more labor is
required to keep up a fire of wood than
one of any kind of coal. Wood needs
better protection than coal, and depre
ciates in value much faster when kept in
any situation. Chicago Times.
The Royal Mammies.
Among the royal mummies recently
discovered in Ear pt, with all the mortu-
aiy oppeiuliges and inscriptions, are the
bodies of luutmes ill. ana itameses 1.1.
Think of it. Here is the body, in an ex
cellent state of preservation, of Thnt
mes. the monarch who erected the obe
lisk that is now set up on the Thames
embankment in London, and of Ra
meses, the monarch whose name and
fame are perpetuated in the inscriptions
on that monument. The account of the
discovery says that "even the flowers
and garlands which were placed in their
coffins may be seen encircling the masks
which cover the faces of the deceased
just as they were left by the mourners
over three tuousand years ago.
This great collection was found in a
gallery two hundred feet long, "filled
with relics of the Thebian dynasties "
relics that had been removed from their
regular resting places iu tombs and tem
ples by the priests, and concealed in this
secret subterranean gallery to preserve
hem against t he sacrilege or some foreign
invader. Included in the discovery are
3,700 mortuary statues, bearing royal
ear-touches and inscriptions, niteen
enormous wigs, and above all, a vast
leathern tent " in a truly wonderful state
of preservation." It is covered with
hieroglyphs most carefully embroidered
in red, green, and yellow leather ; the
colors are quite fresh and bright, and the
whole workmanship is described as beau
tiful. But more interesting and valuable
than nil the rest was a discovery of
papyri at least it might be so presumed,
for they had not yet been unrolled. Four
of these papyri were found in a secret
gallery, hewn in the solid rock of the
cliffs of the Lybian Mountains. The
papyri are all in a perfect state of preser
vation. The largest is about sixteen
incht s wide, and its length, when un
rolled is estimated from one hundred to
one hundred and forty feet, and it is ele
gantly colored and illuminated. Ureat
interest is manifested to know the con
tents of these ancient 'creeds and what
light they may throw on the hitherto un
discovered secrets of the world. Boston
A Colorado Sunset.
Standing upon the margin of a lovely
lake in thebo-om of the nestling mount
ains above the beautiful Village of
Georgetown, in Colorado, one can see a
sunset more brilliant and beautiful than
was ever looked upon in the East, and
which is only equaled bv the virgin reach
of reddening light which mellows into
twilight shadows on the plains. 1 saw it
on a summer evening when all nature was
hushed in stillness. The fireflies shot
through the growing dusk like sparkling
louries in Egyptian night. Overhanging
forest and swart and blackened crag were
reflected in the green waters of the lake.
The sun hovered, as in a fascinated spell.
above the mountain tops, while rays of
golden light, flushed with crimson peak
and turret on nature's battlements. It
seemed to glow and expand like an open
ing rose, until it became full-blown, and
cust its arrowy pencilings for miles across
the sky like a mighty name. Then, as if
ashamed of its boldness, it drew a veil of
grayish mist about its face and Mushed
beneath it. The mist changed into a
cloud shaped like a crescent, with ragged
fringes flecked with gold, and in its
wonderful aspect recalled the legends of
Mohammed s banner, red and lurid be
neath Asian skies. Even as I looked it
changed. The darkening scarlet was
transformed to ruby brilliancy. Ixmg
lines of pallor whitened on the parti-col
ored surface, side bv side with golden
lances, which seemed to flash from the
glowing orb like dissolving rays. The
enamored sky for one feverish instant
caught and mirrored all the colors of the
rainbow. Then again it darkened
flushed and paled and drawing the
hovering draperies of the night about it,
sank out of sight. - The stars came out.
The night-hawk poised on swooping
pinion, shrieked above the forest solitude.
The leafy murmur of the moaning pines
took up the refrain and awoke the spell
bound senses into life and action. The
charm was gone, but the beauty lingered
on the fancy like a beautiful memory.

A Tisit to Henry Clay's Tomb.
Here we visited Ashland Farm, the
home of the " Great Harry of the West."
All of thnt once magnificent farm (except
portion owned by James (Jlay and on
which he now resides) was bought by
the state of Kentucky. A portion has
been set apart for an Agricultural and
Mechanical School. The old residence,
on account of its dilapidated condition,
has been rebuilt by one of his sons on
the same model. A good many of the
trees planted by the hands of Mr. and
Mrs. Clay as ornaments to the grounds
have been cut down and carried away.
He is buried in one of the most elevated
spots in the Lexington Cemetery. The
State of Kentucky has erected over his
remains a very imposing monument of
granite and marble, cut from its own
quarries. In the basement of the mon
ument, through a glass door, is seen his
tomb, on which is inscribed one of those
eloquent sentences, taken from one of
his speeches in Congress, in which he
calls on God to bear him witness to the
purity o( his motives and the absence of
any desire for self-aggrandizement that
prompted his advocacy of the pending
measure before Congress. Lexington

Stock-Raising In the West.
The freedom to pasture cattle on ex
cellent grazing land, together with an
accessible market, are the main reasons
why at present stock-farming is particu
larly profitable. The first of these con
ditions is precarious, and it is evident
that in ten years there will not be much
good free range left east of the Missouri
river. When immigration to that extent
shall have shut him off from free pastur
age, the stock man can either sell his
form at probably four times its present
value, and move to Dakota or Montana,
or else turn his attention to fattening
stock on grain for other parties.
For instance, as a practical case, there
said to own 100,000 head of cattle in I
Idaho. He has a range of sixty square
miles of land not worth a cent to the
acre for agriculture, yet affording excel
lent pasture for cattle. He has ten men
employed at wages varying from $24 to
$40 per month to look after the stock.
rm " mI Z A- 1 31
inese men require zuu pomes to naiuue
the cattle. An overseer is hired at
$1,200 a year. During the winter, how
ever, four men can do all the work re
quired, which is mainly breaking the ice
iu the streams that the cattle may have
water. Streams serve as the great checks
upon the cattle straying away, for they
never will go far from water. In the
spring of the year the cattle men of the
plains have a grand " round up (as it
is called), the stock is picked out by
means of the brand, and those cattle
that are meant for the Eastern market
started for Omaha. They travel
about ten miles a day, and gen
erally take the whole season in
the journey from the winter
ground to the Missouri bottom. At
Omaha the cattle ore put on the train
and shipped nominally to Chicago, but
really to different points along the road,
to be handed over to farmers for fatten
ing. Mr. Stewart delivered over 1,900
head to farmers last fall, and of these
only eight were lost during the winter.
The parties who receive the cattle agree
to fatten them at the late of 5 cents for
every extra pound of weight they add to
the animaL This seems small at first
sight, but when cattle put on 250 extra
pounds during a winter, and where two
hogs are fed from the refuse of each ox,
the farmer finds that the result to him is
equivalent to selling his corn at 100 per
cent, profit. The large cattle-raisers, of
course, have their inspectors, who travel
from farm to farm to look after their
property, and gather it together in the
spring for shipment to Chicago, where
they are either slaughtered or shipped
to Europe. The cattle men have a great
advantage over mere farmers, in that
they are to a great extent independent
of railways. If they are badly treated
by one corporation, they have a simple
remedy in driving their stock a few miles
to the next road. Harper's Magazine.

As a matter of fact, the dog has all
seasons for his own, and goes mad just
when he pleases. It is a mistake to
confine his suppression and limit the
bounty on him to any month in the
year. With very few and rare excep
tions he is useless. There should be a
bounty on him all the year round. Out
side the sausage he serves no purpose,
and in the belief of many he is not al
together digestible there. He does not
even catch his own fleas. He radiates
them rather. Of course, they catch
birds, but. the bird doesu't bite or go
mad ; why not keep the birds and abol
ish the dog ? Occasionally a dog saves
somebody from drowning, but if figures
could be had we would venture to say
they never saved anybody from drown
ing who did not turn ont to be predes
tined to some other death. JSo doubt
the St. Bernard dogs have saved some
people from perishing in the snow, but
history furnishes no record of anything
iu particular that has been done for the
benefit of the race by the persons saved,
and it is more than likely that they
would have had an easier exit if the res
cuing dogs had left them alone than they
did have finally. We do not recall an
instance where a dog has vindicated his
reason for being. The friendly dog is
always too demonstrative : the unfriendly
dog is a dangerous nuisance, and the dog
that is neither one nor the other only
occupies space and generates fleas,
There are persons who keep blunt-nosed
dogs that sit on the piazzas or crouch in

A Teutonic Argument.
In the liegislature of Ohio, some
years ago. there was a warm aispute
whether a certain proposed railroad
should commence at a given point down
or at a certain other up the river.

Straggle With a Porter-Honse Steak.
"This is the porter-house, is it ?" asked
the sad passenger, sitting at the corner
table in the restaurant.
"Yes sir," said the waiter, with the
weary air of a man who was tired of hav
ing to tell the same lie a thousand times a
day, " porter-house steak, sir; same as you
ordered sir."
"Do you cut porter-house steak from
between the horns this year ?" asked the
sad passenger, with the intonation of a
man who wanted to know.
"Sir?" said the waiter.
"It seemed to be a trifle tenderer last

How to Make Labor Cheerful.
A dozen or so years ago the wife of
President Garfield wrote her husband a
letter, in which the following passage
occurs :
" I am glad to tell that, out of all the
toil and disappointments of the summer
just ended, I have risen up to a victory ;
that the silence ot thought since you
have been away has won for my spnit
triumph. I read something like this
the other day : ' There 5s no healthy
thought without labor, and thought
makes the laborer happy.' Perhaps
this is the way I have been able to climb
up higher. It came to me one morning
when 1 was making bread. L said to
myself : ' Here I am, compelled by an
inevitable necessity to make our bread
this summer. Why not consider it a
pleasant occupation, and make it so by
trying to see what perfect bread I can
make ?' It seemed like an inspiration,
and the whole of life grow brighter.
The very sunshine seemed flowing down
tlvrough my spirit into the white loaves,
and now I believe my table is furnished
with better bread than ever before, and
this truth, old as creation, seems just
now to have become fully mine, that I
need not be the shirking slave to toil,
but its regal master, making whatever I
do yield me its best fruits. - You have
been king of your work so long mayoe
you will laugh, at me for having lived so
long without my crown, but I am too
glad to have found it at all to be entire
ly disconcerted, even by your merri
ment Now I wonder if right here does
not lie the ' terrible wrong,' or, at least,
some of it, of which the woman suffrag
ists complain. The wrongly-educated
woman thinks her duties a disgrace and
frets under them, or shirks them if she
can. She sees man triumphantly pur
suing his vocations, and thinks it is tho
kind of work he does which makes him
grand and regnant ; whereas, it is not
the kind of work at all, but the way in
which, and the spirit with which, he
does it"

Stage Terms.
The general term used to designate an
actor is " fakir," a word which originally
meant a magician. From it is coined
the verb "fake," which means to imitate
or sham. Few actors are willing to
acknowledge that other actors ore good;
hence the slang of the theater is used to
designate bad actors. Of these the most
frequent are " dnner," " snide actor
and " bum actor." The " variety" play
er is looked down upon by the legiti
mate actor, and is called a "ham.

Wild Roses In Britain.
We have altogether some five true
wild roses in Britain. The commonest
is the dog-rose, which everybody knows
well ; and next comes the almost equally
familiar sweet-briar, with its delicately
scented glandular leaves. The burnet-
rose is the parent of our cultivated
Scotch roses, and the two other native
kinds are comparatively rare. Double
garden roses are produced from the sin
gle five-petalled wild varieties by making
the stamens (which are the organs for
manufacturing pollen) turn into bright
colored petals. There is always more or
less of a tendency for stamens thus to
alter their character ; but in a wild state
it never comes to any good, because
such plants can never set seed, for want
of pollen, and so die out in a single gen
eration. Our gardeners, however, care
fully select these distorted individuals,
and so at length produce the large, hand
some, barren flowers with which we are
familiar. The cabbage and moss
roses are monstrous torms tuns Dreu
from the common wild French roses of
the Mediterranean region; the China
roses are cultivated abortions from on
Asiatic species ; and most of the other
garden varieties are artificial crosses
between these or various other kinds,
obtained by fertilizing the seed vessels
of one bush with pollen taken from the
blossoms of another of a different sort.
To a botanical eye, double flowers, how
ever large and fine, ore never really
beautiful, because they lack the order
and symmetry which appear so con
spicuously in the fine petals, the clust
ered stamens and the regular stigmas oi
the natural form. Belaravia.

To a massachusetts man, Joseph Wal
ker, is due the credit of inventing the
shoe-peg. Previous to the year 1818 its
nse hod not been known, and the inven
tion gave a new start to the manufacture
of boots and shoes. Up to that date
such articles had been sewed, and the
peg, made at first by hand, came in to
revolutionize the trade. It was, however,
the custom of shoemakers who lived
away from the manufacturing centers to
make their own pegs by hand even down
to recent times, out the machine-manufactured
peg has now superseded all
such slow work, just as the horseshoe
noil manufacture is now almost wholly in
the hands of establishments that make
them by machinery. .The usual story
comes with the introduction of the shoe
peg, to the effect that some unscrupulous
parties tried to swindle the unsuspecting
by endeavoring to sell shoe-pegs as a
new kind of oats. But this tale is like
many others, to be read and then "taken
under advisement."
After all his life-long work upon the

fame and abilities justly command, John
B. Gough is not a rich man. His private
charities are as large and numerous as they
are unostentatious, for this great-hearted
man does not let his left hand know what
his right hand does. He has met with
frequent and heavy losses on account of
the tender-hearted willingness with
which he puts his valuable autograph on
the back of a friend's album for ninety
days, and the almost infallible certainty
with which he is compelled to get it back
again for himself when the three short
months have flown. Mr. Gough ought to
be worth $500,000, but like most men
whose hearts are wrapped up in, and
whose lives are consecrated, to some great
work of refcrm, he is not a good busi
ness man, and impecunious friends and
suffering humanity have got most of the
money the great apostle of temperance
has earned by hard platform work.

As if there were not'sufficient excitement
at the usual horse-race, these meetings on
the turf nearly always close with a grand
steeple chase. This kind of race combines
all the excitement of the regular race, with
the super-added element ot danger which
seems to give further zest to the sport.
Horses, and good ones at that, often receive
severe injuries, which render them praotgr
cally useless for long periods. At least
this was the state of affairs until owners
and breeders of fine stock began to freely
use St. Jacobs Oil, the Great German
Remedy for man and beast This invara
able article to horsemen has so grown into
favor on account of its phenomenal efficacy
in diseases of domestic animals, especially
the horse, that it would be difficult indeejl
to discover a horsemen unacquainted witn
its magical potency. The Philadelphia
Easy Hour, in a recent isue says: But
one of the most important evelopements
concerning St. Jacobs Oil is Ke jUscoJe!r7
that it has properties which are fienencial
to the animal as well as to the hman
species. It has, of late, been in active C
ma nd among livery men and others for nsV
on horses suffering from sprains or abra

of in this connection, is that related by Mr.
