It is the observation of the St. Louis
Journal of Agriculture and Farmer that
" the greater part of the soil of England
has been under cultivation for a thousand
years, and yet the laud is richer and the
crops more prolific than they were
thousand years ago. Why, then, should
so many thousands of acres in many sec
tion of this country have become so
greatly deteriorated in productiveness in
a comparatively few years? Careless
and unskilled culture must necessarily
be the answer."
The Sheep of Thibet.
The sheep of Thibet, which are very
numerous, are chiefly a small variety of
the fat-rumped Persian and Abyssinian,
hairy, with short wool underneath, while
others bear a long, soft and tine wool.
It is from the latter that many of the
costly Indian shawls are made. Not
little of this peculiar wool finds it way to
Bntish India, and is there manufactured.
This breed is found in its purest state in
the deserts of Great Tartary; no other
variety being near to contaminate its
blood. It leaches far into the interior
and northern parts of Russia and
much disseminated in China, Persia,
Hindostan, Asia Minor and eastern Af
rica as well as Thibet In Palestine it
more numerous than any other breed;
indeed the largest proportion of the sheep
of northern Asia being of this descrip
tion. Professor Pallas conjectures that
th'19 character arises in the fat-rumped
sheep from their feeding upon the bitter
and saline plants found upon the borders
of the Caspian and Black seas. And
he asserts that when they are
removed from the places where
these plants grow the fatty excrescence
becomes less. But Canfield says,
the fat-rumped and fat-tailed sheep are
varieties which are widely dispersed,
seems more probable that they may have
been produced by accident, and may
also have been perpetuated by necident,
design or fancy. The fat-tailed sheep
very extensively diffused; it is found
throughout Asia and a great part of Af
rica, as well as through the northern
parts of Europe. They differ, like other
sheep, in the nature of their covering.
Madagascar, and in some other hot cli
mates, they are hair; at the Cape of Good
Hope they are covered with coarse wool;
in the Levant their wool is extremely
fine. The proportion which the weight
of the tail in some of these sheep bears
to the whole catcase is quite remarkable.
The usual dressed weight of the sheep
is from fifty to sixty pounds, of which
the tail is said to make more than one
fourth part. Kussui describes two breeds
of fat-tailed sheep about Aleppo; in one
the deposit of caudal fat is moderate,
the other sort the tail is much larger.
The nnptuous fat of the tails of these
sheep is accounted a great delicacy alike
by the Boers and the Hottentots of south
ern Africa. The Hottentots, in their
primitive condition, possessed immense
flocks and pursued the pastoral arts with
great success. Dr. Mitchell.
Something Queer About Ants.
Sir John Lubbock has made out thai
ants do not recognize ants of tho same
nest by any sign or password, though
thinks it impossible that ic the case
nests containing 100,01)0 each, all the
ants know each other individually. The
way in which he disproved the sign
password theory was exceedingly ingen
ious. He took pupie from various nests
and gave to some of them attendants
from a different nest of the same species,
so that if they were taught any sign
password the ants thus brought up would
know the sign of their nurse's nest, and
not that of their own, except when
nurse had been taken from their own
nest Then he returned some of them
to their own nest, somo to their nurse's
nest The result was as follows:
pupa) brought up by friends, and re
turned to their own nest, none were at
tajsked, but all welcomed. Of pupie
brought up by strangers of the same
species, and returned to their own nest,
thirty-seven were welcomed and only
seven were apparently attacked; but
these seven Sir John was doubtful
three cases. Of pupie brought up
strangers of the same species, and put
hito the nest of those strangers, none
were welcomed ; all fifteen were attacked.
Hence, ants of the same nest do recog
nize each other, but not by any sign
password probably by some smell
other sense quite unknown to us. The
whole series of these experiments of Sir
John Lubbock's are most interesting,
and we hope he will some day embody
Ins studies in au essay on those highly

A Ghost on a Railroad.
A ghost who looks big enough and is
presumably old enough to know better,
spenrls his evenings on the trucks of tho
Reading Railroad, just below Port Ken
nedy Station, scaring the life out of en
gineers and train men who may happen
to pass. He has been shot at t wice. Is
run over several times nightly, and has
been strwik on the head with a bludgeon
onoe. This kind of things doesn't dis
turb him, however, for he swallows the
bullets without fear of indigestion and
plays roley-poley with the heavy car
wheels as they are crushing and mangling
his intangible body.
Ten vears azo a vagrant was run over
just near the spot which is now haunted,
under circumstances which implied neg-
lirri'ticn nn flu iiirl. of the mun in ehnrtrft
ofthe locomotive. Immediately ghosts
began to make their appearance by the
do.en, until the fall of 1HS0, after which
time it was thought that thoir wrath was
appea-sod, as they came no more. On'
Christmas night, however, an appara
tion of unusual size attacked the nine
o'olock freight train, which is managed
by Engineer Charles Welch. This was
tho signal for a general onslaught, and
every evening since then phantoms have
flitted across tho lines and otherwise
made themselves felt in consequence a
great many of the trains which leaves
Callowhill Street Depot after dark are
loaded with missiles anil weapons for use
against bogies wherever they may bo
found at large.
Brakeman George Nelson, on the train
whieh leaves Philadelphia at a quarter
to eight in the evening,- claims to have
had a thrillingcxperience with the ghost;
it. ran away with his cap. On New
Years night ho was standing on the front
platform of the first car to get a whiff of
fresh air, with the train steaming thirty
five miles an hour. When within fifty
yards of tho usual spot tho headlight s
rays piercing the darkness rested on
what seemed to be the figure of a man
standing out in bold relief. Although
it could not have been more than a few
seconds before tho train reached it the
time seemed prolonged to minutes. Nel
son excitedly seized the bellropc, pulled
it violently and in addition shrieked out
to the engineer to pull up. Although he
laid hold of the cord at once, ho says that
it was not until the apparition was p:issed
that the gong struck. Gradually tho train
neared tho person, who seemed to be
standing with one of his hands shading
his face and the other pointing to the
throbbing- engine, straining to mow him
down. There was a sudden blankness,
a cold blast of air which carried off his hat,
and Nelson did not knovy what happened
till the-conductor opened the door and
told him he would catch oold. He was
certain that what ho had seen was not
flesh and blood. On the next night he
armed himself with a large piece of iron,
but tho ghost was a wily one and didn't
come. On the succeeding evening, how
ever, ho had a clean shot at it, and
passenger on the train, who had been
told of the bogie, joined him and fired
two barrels of a revolver in his face, all
Tho most interestingexperienco, how
ever, was reserved for Engineer Charles
Welch, who has been mentioned as hav
ing heralded the ghost's first appearance
this season. On last Saturday night he
spied it, as usual, ahead, but it looked
so different from what it did on the previ
ous occasion that ho thought it was a
real individual and not an artificial one.
In a few seconds, with great presence of
mind, he had the brakes down, the steam
whistle blowing and the bell ringing. He
shuddered perceptibly as the train slid
over the figure and then came to a dead
stop. He had not sufficient notioe to
stop the train in timo.
"We've killed some one, Jim," said
Welch sorrowfully, to the conductor,
"and we ha I belter go back and pick up
tho , pieces." A mournful procession
proceeded to hunt for the required items
but not a scrap could they find. Welch
all at once remembered about the ghost
and tho train sped on. Philadelphia
Princes in Custody.
The Concieigerie, where Prince Napoleon
was confined, lias twice served as
prison for members of his family. Prince
Louis Napoleon, afterward Emperor, was
shut up there in 1810 when he was
awaiting his trial before the Chamber
Peers for his Boulogne expedition, and
Prince Pierre Bonaparte was detained
there m 1870 after his manslaughter
the Journalist Victor Noir. Louis Napo
leon, who was defended by tho eloquent
Legitimist orator Berryer, received sen
tence of "imprisonment for life,"
penalty which did not exist on tho statute-book,
but which the Peers decreed
"so that they might not attach the de
grading punishment of penal servitude
(travnux forces) to the great name
Napoleon." The Prince was at once
conveyed to tho Fortress of Ham,
Picardy, whence he escaped in 1346.
Prince Pierre Bonaparte was tried
March, 1870, before a high court, spe
cially constituted, and sitting at Tours.
He was acquitted of willful murder, but
was sentenced to pay 1,000 damage's
to the family of his victim. Touching
the arrest oj Princes, it may be observed
that tho police of Paris have under
regimes had experience in this kind
business. Some of the arrests have re
mained memorable owing to the intense
fublie excitement which they caused,
n 1748 the arrest of Prince Charles Ed
ward, the younger Pretender, at the
door of the old Opera House, and by
ordinary police official, produced a com
motion of which traces may be found
all contemporary memoirs. Voltaire
wrote that the TVince had suu'ored
gross indignity. But perhaps tho most
amusing affair of this sort was the at
tempt to arrest Duke Charles of Brnns
wick under Louis Philippe's reign. The
Duke, having been expelled from his
dominions in 1830, took refuge in Paris,
and began to give trouble to tho French
Government by his intrigues. After the
Government had borne with him
some time, it was resolved that he must
leave the country, and Count do Mont
alivet, the Home Minister, signed a war
rant for his arrest and expulsion. But
the Duke was warned of what was com
ing, and hired an obscure actor to take
his place, he himself retiring to the house
of a friend. The actor, who had con
trived a capital "make-up,'' was ar
rested and conveyed totheSwiss frontier
in a post-chaiso, escorted by a troop
horso. All through the journey ho was
treated with royal honors; but this
frightened him that soon after reaching
Geneva he quietly decamped Without
waiting for the remittance of his fee.
Meanwhile the real Duke had sent friends
to intercede for him with Louis Philippe,
and the King was so much tickled
hearing how his Minister had been out
witted that ho got the order of expulsion
quashed on the Duke's promising to
of good behavior London Timet.

Profesior Arnold says the points la
favor of dairying are: First, adairy farm
costs ten per cent less to operate than
grain growing or mixed agriculture.
Second, the annual returns average a
little more thnn other branches. Third,
I rices are nearer uniform and more re
iable. Fourth, dairying exhausts tho
soil less. Fifth, itis more secure against
changes In the season, since the dairy
man does not suffer so much from wet,
frost and varying seasons, and he can.
If prudent, protect against drouth.
A writer in .he New York Times
emphasizes the fact that the profit of the
dairyman comes wholly from his good
cows, and that many a dairy might l.u
reduced one-half in number of its cows
and the dairyman make more profit than
he may have done from the whole
original number, because one poor cow
will not only "cat off its own head,"
but will cat off that of another and a
better one, too, before ho has equalized
the profit and loss of the keep of the
Green and Dry Fodder.
It is the populnr belief that if we could
havo grass in winter, we should solve the
problem of profitable winter dairying,
and so the minds of dairvmen are cen
tered upon the subject of ensilage to a
very large extent. That successful win
ter dairying necessitates something akin
to the green food of summer, is a fact.
But we doubt very seriously that a past
ure field in winter time would bo at all
desirable The seasons demand certain
hinds ol food, ana while a little of one
season's food may be relished and valu
able at another season, it is very ques
tionable if there cannot be too much of a
good thing. Indeed to say it is ques
tionable does not describe the situation.
There is no question about it. In win
ter tiio animal needs concentrated food,
with a reasonable supply of water, and
this supply of water can be secured
from roots. In ensilage, according to ex
cellent authority, all that is preser'ed is
the water, and it is a pretty expensive way
of saving water. Prof. Ilenrv.of Wiscon
sin, says there is more nutriment in the
dry fodder than there is when it is ensil
aged, a fact, if it is a fact, which we sup
pose may bo accounted for upon the
grounds that the nutriment being in a less
diluted state, the system can appropriate
it without so much effort. Drying could
add nothing to its nutrient qualities. But
as excellent an authority as Dr. Lewes
says that fodder loses nothing in drying
but the water. In a dry state therefore,
it contains all the most valuable parts
that it possessed when it was green, and
if it is desired to restore it to its Original
condition, that may be accomplished by
soaking it in wuter, steaming it, etc. It
is claimed that cornstalks, for instance,
are worth nearly half as much as the
grain for feeding purposes. Now if these
aro cut and mixed with bran, or meal,
wet down, and placed in a closely
covered box, for a day or two, the mixt
ure will be productive of excellent re
sults. Add to such feed a reasonable
amount of roots, and the dairy cow has
got ju.H as near to summer feed as it is
desirable she should.
In feeding for the dairy, the prime ob
ject is, of course, milk, and milk-produc-ing
foods must be fei. But if we feed
for milk alone the cow will oon run
down. She must have well-balanced
food, something that contains all the
elements that her system needs, as much
as any other animal. The result of feed
ing a one-sided food is shown in the
condition of distillery-fed cows. They
give milk upon this food, but they may
be found covered with sores, with tails
dropping off, nnd horns dropping oft.
The system gets nothing from which
can supply the constant waste. '1 his
an extreme examplo of the ill effects of
feeding a one-sided food. But if we
neglect to give our cows sufficient of
something to keep all parts of the sys
tem in good order, while they may not
show the results in as marked a manner
as here stated, tho bad results are just
as inevitable, and we shall lose in the
end. Western Itural.
Not too Much Hay.
The cow must be well fed. It is not
enough to feed a cow all the hay she can
eat. Generally it is not advisable to foed
a milch cow all the hay she can eat. Hay
is dillicult to digest, and if as much
fed as the cow can eat the digestive
organs will bo burdened to such an ex
tent that the animal can not digest
enough nutriment to enable her to yield
as large a flow of milk as she otherwise
could. In regard to this matter, Pro
fessor L. B. Arnold says: "The slow and
imperfect manner in which common hay
digests is an objection to using it to the
extent many dairymen do as the main
food for the" dairy. It is often the boast
that cows have all the hay they can eat,
but it is a boast that docs not speak well
for the largest returns. Hay will not
allow of the best results in milk produc
tion. Dried grass will do fery well; but
common hay would require an amount
burdensome for a cow to carry, an
amount beyond the capacity of her
stomach, to yield the material for a good
flow of milk without drawing on her
store of flesh to produce it 1'he more
I study the food of milch cows, tho more
urn 1 inclined to limit the quantity of hay
to tho smallest amount which will uffurd
a comfortable distention of the stomach,
and make up the rest of the ration with
food richer and more rapidly digested.
It is the best way to get large and paying
returns." It is not advisable to give
cow all the liay she will eat even when
she is fed with grain to a considerable
extent. She will take in more food than
her digestive organs can properly digest,
and a portion will be wasted. By feed
ing only enough hay to produce a com
fortable distention of the digestive or
gans, tho remaining digestive powei
can be expended on more easily digested
food, and thus enable the cow to yield
larger How of milk. If the bay used
mUsible to feed if more freely than Tate
cut hay. Mtusaoiunetts I'louyhman.

report on the ara'li of t : 1 1 city is a startling
cotnn nt on Its lif'tu Dm Ins; the pat year
the enormous Increase of certain maludlea Is
simply ppalJinz. VYhde the total number of
de ths hns diiniultbed and the death rite ns
noflt diseases htis decreased still It la far
greater In one or two serious disorders than
was ever k own before. More people died in
the city of New York In from Hrght's
unease of the kidneys, tb n irorn dlilthcila.

hen It is remembered, that less than onc-
tlilrd the actual deaths from Brlht's dine te
are really repot te I as nuih, the ravages of tho
mniaty can be partially uuderntoo L
lhe fin mem te query wnlcn every reaaer
ill make UDon such a revel tlon of facts, is:
What causes this Increase t This Is a difll-
cult question to answer. The nature of the
cliuiHte. the habits of U'e. the a l ilierat nn of
foods and Hquora, all undoubtedly contribute ;
but no immediate raua can be ce tiiuly as
signed. Often before the victim knows it the
disease hss begun. Its spproaciiea are so
stealthy and its symptoms so obscure that
the v cann t be definitely foreseen an 1 are only
known by their effects. Any ki In ydNorler,
however s liitit. Is the nrst stape of Hr I-: tit's
dl ease, but it Is seldom that kidney d Bor
ders can be detected. They do not huve any
certain symptoms. Mysterious weariness; sn
unusual appetite; per-olicit headaches; oc
casional nau-ea; uncertitn pilns; los ol
vigor; i.uk of nerve poner; iir-uuiaritv of
the he irt; disordered daily Ii bit; imperfect
dWetiou all these aud m.tny o'her synit
toma are the indications of kidu y diabnler
even though there may b-' no pan in the
retrion of the kidneys .-r in that portion of tho
bodv. The serious nature of thette troubles
m y be undeis oo I from the f ct t lint Briirht's
d.sease Is i a cert ain to follow diseased kidneys
as deco nj osition follows d ' th.
It Is high time the d ctors in this land who
have be n unable to omirol kidney troubles,
should be aroused an 1 compelled to Hud some
remedy, or acknowledge one already ( nn 1.
The fiufferiotc public needs he!p a- d can not
await the tardy aetion of any bair-plit tints
code or incorrectly formulated theories. If
the m- dlcil world has uo certain remedy for
this terrible disease let them acknowledge it
ami seek for one outsMe the p ile of their pro
fession. For the dUcovery of thisrernedy and
for Its application to this dise-se, the leople
of this city, the people of the wl.ole html, not
only those who are suflerine, but those who
bave frlen Is in danger, are earnestly aud long
lhe above quotation from the New York
Tribune is causfnj considerable commotion,
aa it seems to lift the cover from a subject
that has become of National Importance. The
alarming lucre tsa of kidney diseases ; their
Insid oua beginnings and frightful endings
and the acknowIeJzs 1 luab.lityof ph siclans
to sutcessfully cope with them may well
awaken the greatest drad of every one who
has the. sll:h est symptoms. It Is fortunate,
however, that the surest rell f Is often fouui
where, possibly, least expected, and th -it there
Is a specific for the evils above described we
bave come to fully believe. Within the past
two years we have frequently seen statements
f parties claiming to havo been cure J of
serious kidney troubles even after hope had
been abandoned; but in common with most
people we have discreditel them. Quite re
cently, however, a number of prominent and
well-known men bave come out voluntarily
and stated over their signatures that the)
were co npletely cured by the use of Warner's
Safe Kidney and Liver Cure, Most people
bave been aware that this medicine has nm
unusual standing and one entitling It to be
classed i4ovo pro.rletary articlei generally;
but that it h id accomplished so much In
checking the ravages of kidney disease is nut
so generally known. Its great wcrih has been
shown not only t y the cures it has effctel,
but also bec mse a number of base imitations
have appeared in the market, fraudulently
claiming the valuable qualities of theorlinal
Safe Cure. If It were not valuable, It would
aot bt! imitated.
The abore may seem like an ultra endorse
ment of a poj ular remedy but itis not one
whit stronger than tbe facts admit. What
ever assists the wrld toward health and con
sequent happiness, should receive the hearty
endorsement of the pres find all friends nf
human ty. It fs ou precisely this principle
that the foregoing states ent is made and It
merits the careful consideration of every

I rwmly. our reiorir extended ttla trip tot tie soutb
eusteni ritrrmltyof ths town, to look about among
the wonderful lmproTemrnti which hare twen niad la
the app-arnc of Warwick Nck during a compare
tlvelj- brii'f period, and while conversing on this sub
ject wllh Col. P iNJAHiK S. Hazaso, the popuiarpro
prlctor of the Warwick Neck Hotel, he learned thatthe
greater part of the handsome summer reldnres bd
bn erected inside of admen years; and he aiv h-amed
that CoL Haiard bad been a great sufferer from a
chronic disease of the kidneys and bladder over Aft era
yrar. the most painful form of It being s stoppage or
retention ef tbs arine, wnicn was so very sever
times as to disable him for his acenstomed work, and
aven confine him to ths bed, whrn a surgeon's aaslst-
ance would be required to rettrTe htm. Ue waa being
d a i-to red a large prt of the time, but conld ft no
permanent relief. At times bis suffering were terrible
from sharp, cutting pains through the kidneys and
bladder; and ha had suffrred so long and so s'Terriy
that he bad become discouraged of getting well ajralo.
especially as the doctor stated that It was doubtful If a
man of hit ag with such a compttcau d disease of long
standing, could be curt-d. But last summer, whra be
was suffering Intensely from one of these attacks, a
gentleman who was boarding at his hotel urged and
persuaded him to try a bottle of Hunt a Remedy, as be
bsd known of some wonderful currs effected by It.
Mr. Haiard says he had no faith In It, but consented
reluctantly to try it ; and af ler taking It only two days,
the Intense pains and aches hsd disappeared, and be
commenced to gln strength rapidly, and in leas than a
week was attending to hts accustomed work, and has
never had a return of the pains. Mr. Hs.ard Is over
i-venty years of age, and on the th of Nov., 12,
when our reporter met htm. alt hough It was a very cold
and hl'Htertng duv, he waa tn the 0:ld w'th his team at
work pnillng and loading turnip, aa hale and hearty a
man as you could wish for, whereas last August he was
unable to stand upt oversee the work then going on In
this iimf field.
Hum's Remedy had given htm health and strength
again, and lie recommend It to his relatives and friends,
several of whom are now taking It, as he conslderalt a
nvt excellent medicine for all diseases of kidneys er
