BACKBONE OF AGRICULTURE. ViirlctlcK of Sheep nmi Value •* Their Products. The bleating of lambs iy once mure hoard in the land, says a writer in Lon don Sketch, nnd the interesting crea tures may be Been disporting themselves nn tho greensward in tho eheepfield or wending their way through rural lanes. Wherever found, they make a picture of unstudied grace. No posing for the camera here —just a wild abandonment to a sense of enjoyment as they bask in the sunshine. Tin- present season has bet ti a favorable one; for tho lambs tho wind has been tempered indeed, and, although the turnips are small and BARBABY si IK I P. scarce, the grass lands have afforded continual pasture. A visit to the sheep fold will pot ap quite a cloud of birds — finches, sparrows, starlings and jack daws, who come to devour the scattered corn. I have photographed nearly every breed of sheep in these islands, includ ing the wild species found at the zoo logical gardens, the Welsh mountain and Irish RoßCommon in their native pastures, and the. tiny Shetlands, and in every case the lambs, when alarmed, rush to their dams for comfort before taking flight, thus exhibiting the in stincts of their remote ancestors, who, being comparatively defenseless, had to take to the tipper ranges of moun tains and trust to their fleetness of L ot for safety, their constant exposure to a low temperature eventually inducing the growth of a warm, woolly covering. In due time they were introduced to this country, and ever since the dawn of history Britain has been celebrated for its wool The Romans very highly esteemed it, and garments made from Briti.-h wool were worn by their no bility. Indeed i+ is asserted by some that our immense foreign trade com menced with tho export vf wool to the continent. Be that as it may, it is an undoubted fact that sheep remain to day the backbone of agriculture. First, there is the meat. Early lambs always command a good price, as also do good (heaves, wethers and ewes. Then the wool—although its prico and quality vary from the lustrous and valuable fleeces obtained from the long wooled Lincolns to the coarse but useful varie ty obtained from the Scotch highlands , and mountains cf Cumberland —brings in a considerable sum. Then, too, sheep arc known, in the picturesque language of Spain, as the animals with golden feet, because wherever they have been folded over the land enormous crops are sure to grow, and, lastly, there is the breeding of pedigree sheep, which ha 3 developed enormously in recent times, so that prices which would have seemed fabulous to our forefathers have been obtained for a single sheep, the liigh water mark being reached last year, when a Lincoln ram, owned by Mr. Dudding of Grimsby, was sold fcr 1,000 guineas. Others have been sold for 200 guineas and upward, many of them for export, British stock having won a worldwide renown. HaitsiiiK Youuk Pigs. If the young pigs lie in the nest much of th« time, they will become fat ami sleek, and the feeder may imagine he is accomplishing excellent results. But before long it will be noticed that tiny seem to breathe hard, breathing by short, panting breaths. In advanced Btagea they will turn green or black on the belly. Thia trouble is known as thumps, and is caused by the pig getting fat around the heart. Exercise ia the preventive and cure. The pig must be kept stirring and not allowed to lie around in this way. _ Feed a little, soaked corji <mjp ;11 ROCK SPRINGS 0 H A I ANDROSLYN uUAL FIR, pine and u/nnn TAMARACK WUUU FENCE POSTS LOW PRICES PROMPT DELIVERY COOD FUEL CODD & MACKENZIE PHONES-OFFICE 55, YARD 2 floor, tUus compelling them to ne on their feet to gather it up. Get in the pen and stir them out of their nest and force them to run about; but, best of all, turn them out in a lot or yard as soon as possible and they will take cxercieo for themselves. The fee<l should be given in a side pen, where the mother sow cannot gob ble it all up before the pign have had a chance to get any. As they grow older and there is no danger of their becoming too fat give them some ekimmilk in a low trough, and also mix in a thick slop ground wheat or middlings or oats with the shucks sifted out, and give also in a low trough. Buttermilk is equally as valuable as skimmilk, if fed without the usual ad mixture of water from washing the butter in the churn. The wash water may be utilized by mixing with grain. If any be left, it should be removed. —Farm Journal Care of Brooders. As soon as the chicks are out of the brooders and you are through using them for the season clean them up and get them into ■winter quarters out of the way. Don't put the brooder away dirty and think you will clean it up in the spring before you are ready for it. If you do, you won't have a brooder fit to use when you are ready for it. When you are through using it for the season, scrape it out thoroughly and wash it inside and out with good hot soapsuds to which a little kerosene has been added; use a scrubbing brush and get it clean. Then go over it again with clean, hot, soapy water and finish off with a cloth, wiping the boards dry. Wash the hover felts if they are dirty and make the whole clean. If it is a hot air brooder, remove the heater and clean out the hot air chamber. You will be surprised to see what a lot of filth has found its way in there. Turn the brooder upside down and brush the sheet iron free of soot. To keep it from rusting apply a thin cgat of raw linseed oil to the iron. Leave the brooder open in the sun, and let it thoroughly dry before you put it away. Have all the parts in place and everything where you can lay your bands on it when wanted. Clean up the lamp, aud do not put it away with oil in it. Wrap it up in newspaper to keep it free from dust. If it is a tin lamp, scrape the bhstered paint out of the water pan, make it clean aud dry. and then give the pan a fresh coat of some good wa ter proof paint; in a week put on a sec ond coat. If you only attend to these little things as you should, you will have a good, clean brooder to use when needed, and you will also save money. Some KiiKlislt Crunks. When I lived at Newport, It. 1., from ISG4 to 1878, says Colonel T. W. II ig ginson, in The Atlantic, there was a constant procession of foreign visitors, varying in interest and often quite wanting in it. I remember one eminent literary man who, in spite of all cau tions to the contrary, appeared at a rather fashionable day reception in what would now be called a golf suit, of the loudest possible plaid, like that of the Scotch cousin in Punch who comes down thus dressed for church to the terror of his genteel cousins. In this case the viator also wore a spy glass of great size, hung round his neck, all through the entertainment. Another highly connected English man, attending uu evening reception given expressly for him, came into the parlor with his bat and umbrella in his hand, declining to be parted from them through the whole evening, which suggested to a clever Newport lady the story of the showman who exhibited a picture of Daniel in the lions' den and pointed out that Daniel was to be distinguished from the lions by having a blue cotton umbrella un der his arm. In this case, the lady re marked that the conditions were re versed, since it was the lion that car ried the umbrella. Measuring- Time, Just when the day became divided Into hours is not known, nor is the process explained. The Greeks and Romans measured time by the water glass and the sun dial .. The hourglass, filled with saud, was the outgrowth of these vessels, from which the water dripped through tiny openings. If a pair of herrings could be left to breed and multiply undisturbed for a period of 20 years, they would yield an amoirat of lish equal in bulk to the globe on which we live. Nothing takes impudence out of peo ple so promptly as adversity.—Atchi son Globe. The Latest X Ray Invention Is the Endoscope, which is for the pur pose of examining the interior of the stomach. It is claimed, that with this instrument, the treatment of stomach troubles will be revolutionized, as it lo cates the cause of disease. With due respect to science, however, would state that the causes of stomach troubles have been known for the past fifty years, and likewise their cure, which is Hostet ter's Stomach Bitters, a medicine that has many imitators, but no equals. It cures dyspepsia, indigestion, biliousness, constipation, nervousness, insomnia. It also prevents malaria, fever and ague, and keeps the bowels regular. When not feeling right, take a dose. It is the standard medicine of the American people. Look for Private Revenue Stamp over tieok of bottle. Estray Notice.
