A IX OXgN LOOKID ALIKE.
Ileaeoa War a I.arr f.'ealiln't Tell 0aa
Animal from Another.
From the New Orleuna Times-Dem
ocrat: Aa ambitious young lawyer
paid bis first visit to a country court
holding Its session not far from New
Orleana not long since. He went to
represent a big railroad In a suit
brought by a countryman to recover
tba value of an ox, which departed
this life in a vain attempt to bold
up the limited mall. The question be
fore the court was ouo of ldentlfle.v
tlon, and the oow'-yniun had testi
fied that be knew the ox by Its color
and tha flesh marks. The young city
lawyer rose and with dignity said: "If
your honor please, there can be no
Question that this witness has sworn
falsely when he testified that an ox
can os recognised ny ms color. I was
ft stenographer before I became a law
yer, and for two days, your honor
(drawing out his notebook), I have tak
en a detailed description of every ox
that passed the hotel, ami I am pre-
pared to swear aa an expert that 'all
oxen look alike to me.' "
"You are trifling with the dignity
or tnis rourt, air." sternly said the
Judge, "and I will flit "
"Hold on, Judge." said the clerk;
"Inert naln t been nut one yoke of ox
en in this town In a week, Old man
Henley's been a hnulln' wtt, and the
lawyer's been counting the same oisn
ver ftnd over,"
"Judgment for plaintiff." sld the
Judge, and the rlty lawyer, glad ta -
cape the wrath of hi honor, took hi
departure, a aadder but wiser man.

done flrnt from tbo fwxl eiiUn and all
tho growth will como latur from any1
surplus of fwxl above thiiso roqoiro

tho food of support goes to maintaining

It follows, of courso, that if tho lumb
to be fed is put into warm quarter less
food will be ummI as fuel and more of it
will be utilized in making growth, We
should then iiiuko tho folds or barns for

them too cold or buying a draft blow

worse than to attempt to ventilate by
tho windows, as it is impossible to do

occurs they are sure to tuke oold,

lamb or lieep can be inudo to do woll

wet. Nor must it bo allowed to booome
filthy. It shonld be made dry and then
kept littered with leaves or straw so ni
to keep clean, and when so it need not
bo cleaned out more than two or three
times during tho winter,
We know another thing. All motion
is at the expense of energy, and energy
come only from fond eaten. If now w
keep tho lumbs very quiet, they will
use less food iu this way, and more can
go to making growth. Nothing can U
more wasteful and foolish than to at
tempt to foed a lot of lamb running
loose over tho Held or yards. Not only
do thoy waste m uuh food iti tho needles
exercise, but they are running over and
crowding cu l other from morning till
night. To do their best they should bt
sorted according to i.u ana no tnort

quarters, not less thun eight feet in
height in the (dear, and when so kepi
muy bo wifely loosed in a pen thut shall
give eueh lumb ten squuro feet of llooi
spuee. In order thut tho lumbs muy Imvt
ample feeding room the pens may bt
ttiudu only 10 feet wide and long

of feeding rack und trough.
Tho common notion thut lumbs dc
not require much wuter is very fulhi
rlou. No unimul needs more or will
drink ofteuer when it bus a tliunce, and
no auimul is half so particular us to tht
cli unllmwH of the wuter or trough from
Which it drinks. Tho drinking trought
should bo up jnst high enough so they
run drink easily and should bo kepi
clouu enough so the shepherd would be
Willing to drink from it.
As has been suid, we wunt a lurgt
amount of lean meat put upon lumbs.
Wu know also thut the food having un
excess of tho nitrogenous element tend
to t he production of luuu uiout. Wt
ihould also know thut sheep, lumbs es
pecially, ore very fond of a vurluty iu
their food. We should therefore feed
largely on uitrogeuous foods, such at
britu, outs, oilmoul and gluten meal foi
;raiu, and no forugo is so good foi
iinili a good, early cut, well cured,
bright clover hay, and if wu have plen

ered the real cash invested by tbe stock
holders Instead of tbe cash capital re
ported by tbe com pun Iu.
I will give you a Utile history of an
Illinois company incorporated in 1880,
with 1100,000, since which time the
stockholders huvo not been called upon

they have been receiving f 40,000 as an
nunl dividends, In fact they have re
celved 700,003 In dividends up to Jun
uury 1, 1NU7. The assets on that date
were 18,100.000. The comnanr col
lected in premiums 122,430,350, and
paid on losses 1 0,111,300.
To put it differently, the real invest
tnent of the company was f 100,000, and
at tho time the last report was made,
Januury 1, 1607, stockholders bad re

companies nnmod. he will find that bis
oppurrently appalling figures pale into
utter insignificance. Of course old liners
will insist that the accumulations tbat
are not divided must be added to tho
cash capital, and some people look upon
that item as an Indication of business
