Many of our western frlonds during the past winter hare fed corn free ly, but not Judiciously, to animals unaccustomed to such fare, with the that a fevered condition of the systent was brought about, and the partial shedding of their fleeces followed In consequence. Then, on. the other hand, sheep that had been well carol for fell Into tho hands of (ho unskillful feeder, and tho ratkn..wlth which they wero furnished not being of the quality that would tend to keep them In a healthy condition, their fleeces becamo loose, and tho consequent dejected appearance of the animals caused their owners to fear that they had a real case of scab on their hands.

My business Is diversified farming, nnd I mnke a specialty of raising hothouse lambs for the Chicago market, writes John A. Hill of Texas to the Hrecder's (Jazette. It Jm a very nice business for h man that likes the sheep business. I breed high grade Southdown ewes and use only reglstTcd rams. 1 sell my lambs at from three to four mouths old nnd ship a car of 'MQ head at n time. They shrink less than any other stock a man can ship. My nhrlnkngo last year was a fraction short of Ave pounds, and I did not get a good run My car made an average of forty-six and a half pounds at market and sold for 8V cents, which I think pays well If ono attends to his lambs properly.

In fclun Poetry Tor Euglliih Headers" Mr. S. Robinson quotes the following from Sudl's writings: A pupil said to his Instructor, "What am I to do, for people Incommode me with the frequency of their visits to Mtich a degree that their conversation produces a great distraction of my valuable time?" The toucher replied: "To every one Mho Is poor lend and from every one who Is rich borrow. They will not come nb'outyou again." Another example embodies excellent advice: A silly fellow, having a pain In his eyes, went to a farrier nnd asked him for a remedy The farrier applied to his eyes something which he would have given to an aulmal, ami It blind ed hlni, upon which they made an ap peal to the magistrate. The magistrate said: "This Is no ensu for damages. It It plnln that this fellow Is nn ass or he would not have koiio to n farrier." No man of enlightened understanding will commit weighty matters to one of mean abilities. A Pntfr I 'or Cnnklliiit.

Later, when he present rd his bill to the man's family, they refused to pay It on tho ground that It was excjsde He took the bill to Charles O'Conor, the greot criminal lawyer, asking hlrii to pa Judgment as to tho equity of his charges. Scanned tho account very closely and then, turning to Conkllug. very grncly remarked, "Well, Conkllug. taking Into consideration the enormous amount of energy and time you have devoted to this case, the charges are reasonable, but sco here, Conkllug, don't you think the man could have been hanged for less money that that?" The IMariulKNn's Tail. One of the moet entertaining chapters tn natural history Is that which relates to the many curious means that birds and othsr nnlmals possess of deceiving tht eye of their enemies. Mr. K.

Ono might suppose that this would attract attention to tho bird crouching on the snow, but In fact it' serves for concealment Kvery projection on n snowfleld casts n dark shadow and that Is whnt tho tall of the motionless ptarmigan looks like, the t)Ody of the bird resembling a mer bump on the white background.
