First, let there be pronounced masculinity in the male and fem ininity in the female, saye Professor Curtiss. Sheep should be neither sexless nor characterless. They should bear the stamp of the breed they represeut. This breed charac ter is a stamp of erooü blood and it should be manifested in no unmis takable manner. The sire should be impressive, resolute and of noble bearing. He should be distinctly the head of the flock in every sense of the word. To meet t hese require ments he must have good vital and constitutional powers. Without these no animal is fit to head a herd or flock. Iu selecting a sire look first at the head. If deficient there, look no further, but reject at once. Insist upon a head that faces you boldly with a wide face, a clear, prominent eye and a robust character throughout. The head should be joined to a well filled, round, muscular neck, wide at the poll and back of the ears aud gradually enlarging at the shoulder as seen from top, sides or bottom. This should be accompauied by a wide chest, a prominent, well filled brisket and a full girth, giving even, straight lines from the shoulders back. A depression either in front of or behind the shoulder, whether at the top, side or bottom line, is an indication of weakness. The back should be strong, wide and well meated from shoulder point to tail. The hindquarters should be full and well 1ft down iu the leg and flank in order to yield well of high priced meat. The legs should be placed wide apart aud stand straight, i Sickle shaped hocks and sloping, weak pasterns afford sufficient rea sou for condemning au otherwise good sheep. MOTES.
