A few weeks ago a faieud wrote to ask us to write about the best sheep lo grow for profit wool being a spe cialty. The fact is that there is no protit iu frUerphusbsmdry in this rc giou, except from the standpoint of wool, aud the prospect now is that wool growing will be moro profitable for some years to come tha it ha? been for several year past. John Min to furnished a comnauBi',atiou on American merino sheep that very nearlv, as. well as very ably, answer cd ihc question alluded to,but we will .L'W! Mchi'ialicli .we have In tnat 'connection: and leave the field open, hoping that wool growers will take nssesion of it and do the subject full justice and it is a very import ant one just now, when the prospects of tile wool grower aro 'booming." Successful wool growers in Oregon and California have bred well up in Merinos, and that has beeu the case in Australia, Texas- and every other country where the profit was iu the wool. Eastern Oregon and Douglass county have bred to merino, and their wool shows the result. A few vears past have shown great results, so that Oregon wools are a favorite, earer y taken and regularly quoted in eastern markets. The coarse wool sometimes found in tlie Willmettc valley is, we belief, general! v charged to injudici ous crossing with the Cetswokl, and experience has not been very satis factory i:i tliat. direction; ..while, as Mr. Minto says, high-grade merino can often be advantgeously affected by a light cross with such long wools as Leicester or New Ox.fovdshires. In Mr. Mir.to's able nrtiele he fve good grounds for a preference for the American merino, as a blending of Ihe best qua itics possessed by the Spanish, French arid Australian fami lies. As to the now Oxfordshire, the sneccís met with by Hon. M. AVilkins of Lane county shows conclusively their Value as a distinct breed, as wcil as when crossed with merino, but wo don't propose to interfere with his province by talking about his ew Oxfordshire, whea he is able to do the talking himself, so wo invkc him to favor our readers with his experi ence jr&nj thastnndoint, and to tell now t.iicy and tl'icir grades repay" iii wool,, both, as to quality and price, as compared with Merino, and not to forget to explain their qualities mul I on sheep. We gave last summer 'he experien ce of Charles Cooke, of F.P.ensburg, Yakima county. AV. T.r in growing SouUülowns. Me had a thousand IU"--ees of high-grade ttouthdowns, that averaged live pounds, and spld at 20 cents when Eastern wool averaged 17 to 18, while, the sh op were hardy, easily kept and prolific breeders, lie wassatistied with his bouthdowns, that averaged hiirs a dollar a head for wool last year, and promise to do bet ter next. ' We should likf to hear more about Southdown.?, and it strik es ns they arc Hie sheep, being short- woolcd ut.l tirmi-tleeced, to run ou the busbv ranges ot the rugged loot-hilla of this valley, where fleeces, for some reason, don t weigh over halt as much as would be ihe c;se if clipped from the same sheep east of the niomitains. This is a very intercting subject a very important one, as importaut a any that can be discussed. The coast ranges, the ranges cf the western val leys and thy; various rauges ot the wide area of Lastern Oregon and Washing ton andMaho, all have different re quirements as they exert different in fluences, and our friends from every where .jan do a great deal of good by telling their experience andgivinglhe public their opinions.
