WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS SAY Klieep ItnlHlnn; In Vermont llcusou for Km Decline. (From the Rutland Heiald.) Almost every person with a broad view of Industrial possibility Is compelled to admit that a large part of Vermont's grazing land Is unfitted for pasturing cows and practlcnlly all of It Is well fitted for pnsturlng sheep. "Time was" when thousands of flocks of sheep roam ed our uplnnds and sldehlll pnstutcs, get ting a fnlr subsistence from vegetation Hint a cow would staive on and yielding a good profit. Only a small number of such Hocks are found In the State to day. The reasons given for the decline nt the shcpp-rnHng Industry In Veiinont are numy, but no doubt one ot the most potent Is the fart that, owing to the im-hale system of llceiiblng dogs to de stroy Mocks or to do any other mischief no sheep farmer may safely count upon maturing, clipping or slaughtering his lambs, because any night may see a pair of worthless dogs looso among his locks, wtlh n bloody result of loss and damage that no system of "dog damage," slowly nnd unwillingly doled forth by tho town, enn ever make good. Fibre and Fabric, commenting on the scarcity of wool and the decllnn of sheep ralslng In Now England, has tho follow ing: It Is sheep-raising as an Industry that will restore the New Kngland farms, not ns a by-product, nnd In western Muss.v chusctts a large tract of hind has been purchased for excluslvo sheep-raising, and down In Capo Cod one progressive farmer is planning an Investment of SlOo.OiO In tho same business. When car ried on as un Industry tho dog question Is not serious, as the secret of success In our opinion, Is mure In herding than In any other particular, and with a ne cessary number of caie takers, the dog question will not be apt to enter seri ously Into the new enterprise. y There Is no big money In a flock of 50 or 00 shrep, turned loose on the farm, because In this case tln-re Is tho danger of dogs doing great damage. Hut a flock of 1,000 to 10,") sheep, properly herded, Is as safe from dogs In Massachusetts as It Is In Ohio or New York State or Penn sylvania, and the profits on this scale ot sheep farming will be many times that of any other method in which our aban doned farm.' could be utilized. The aver ago weight of fleece would tie close to live pounds, so that on a 10,000 clip there would be W,'"0 pounds of wool, worth around 30 cents a pound as an average. Tho wool would bring $13,0). Native lambs would lie In great demand and f.,0 might be sold each year at n low estimate at S12,i"J and there would be &,VJ lambs to keep to Increase the Hock. At these figures the returns are $27,W) annually from 10.rm sheep. Four thous and dollars would safely herd the flock each year, nnd there would bo a .iuer.il iniount left for other expenses nnd for dividends or fixed charges. In live years our New Kngland ranges nnd hillsides should be dotted wlh o.OOO.tM) sheep In stead ot only M0,i as now reported, and we should produce a clip of 2.1,00O,w) pounds of wool, Instead of .'l,0O),(n0 pounds Patriotism and profit can be combined In this New England Industry, If Intel llgent men of large or even moderate means take It up, working on the as sumption that sheep-raising Is tho In dustry nnd all other branches nro by products. Hero are excellent Information and fine, large, healthy figures, but no Ver mont farmer, with the profits of scientific dnlrylng ns certain ns they are to-day will push thnt Industry Into the back ground, sell or kill his cows nnd go Into sheep-raising. Fiist, because there Is not ns much money In raising sheep as In dairying; and second, because the Ver mont winters make the latter Indusry more than usually uncertain. The problem for Vermont Is not to turn the dairy farms of the State Into great sheep ranches, but to utilize a few otherwise nearly-worthless Holds for .sheep pastilles. The GO and 00 sheep flocks are exactly what the Vermonters Is mos Interested in. How to make them practicable, safe and profitable Is tho problem. An early step In that direction should bo the elimination of the woithless d by stricter enforcement of the licensing law, then the discontinuance of the piac tlce of towns paying "dog damage," so that tho owner of a dog could bo held an responsible for tho depredations of that animal as the owner of any other animal. There Is neither reason, profit nor further necessity of continuing a prac tlce which had Its origin In pioneer days when a dog was ns much of a necessity aa flocks of sheep. Vermont needs sheep and wool more than dogs, to Judge from tho present prices of mutton and wool. Why not be gin to regulate the dog? THU LATE DR. TORRKY. (From the Rarre Times.) Tho late Henry Augustus Torrey, as slstant professor of chemistry In Hnr vard University, was of that typo of col lege professor such as his father, Henry A. P. Torrey, represented In the Univer sity of Vermont for so many years- calm, deliberate and lovablo for his stei ling personality.

Valentines Shedwater Foulard Silks Wc cannot too strongly recommend an exam ination and trial of these new and unusually worthy silks. Foulard Silks arc pre-eminently the most favor ed silk fabric of the season. In fact there never has heen a litfht silk so perfectly adapted to the needs of the warm, Summer months. The principle objection in former years has been the fact that such Silks would spot with water and when caught in a light shower, the gown has been nearly, if not quite ruined. Now this serious objection has been entirely overcome and those who depend upon these Sliedwater Foulards and thoroughly test their merits will be delighted with results. Another and possibly the most im portant fact about these Silks is their very moder ate cost full 24 inches wide Price 85 cents. Near one hundred new and beautiful designs for choice, including the much wanted polka spots in black, navy blue, Copenhagen blue and many lighter colors in fashion.
