A Jugbandle Story,
A party of Jacksonville mechanics
were at work on the Matanzai rivet
some months ago raasing a sunken
dredge boat, says the Florida Times-
Union. Tbey lived on board tbe big
Hfhter on which they worked In a small
house on the deck. One noon their bill
of fare was somewhat strengthened by
some wild turkey egg which had been
found by some of tbe party whde hunt
ing on shore. After tho hungry engin
eers bad destroyed a heavy dinner
tbey hft their dining room and
returned to their, work. The doors
and the windows were all open, and
the cook did nU clear off the table for
come time.
Jn this interval a Urge water mocca
sin of nearly six feet crawled on board
the lighter and wriggled into tbe dining
room through the open door. In his
prospecting tour be climbed the table
leg, and here, with a snakes fondness
for eggs, he went in for a feast . Ono
of the eggs lay alone by a plate, and
the rest were in a dish on the other
side of the table. In the center stood
a large water jug and right here the
wily serpent slipped up. After swal
lowing tbe lonesome egg he started for
the main supper and in his artless
manner crawled through the handle of
tbe jug. It was a tight lit and he had
to stop about half way through on ac
count of the egg which enlarged him
somewhat So stretching forward he
bolted another egg and thereby fast
ened I imself.
On each side of tbe jug handle was
an egg on bit inside, and he could not
move neither forward nor backward,
practically rivited in position. lie waa
soon found in this peculiar situation
by the cook, who speedily killed him.
The reporter was shown tbe skin of
the snake with a crease still in the mid
dle from tlie tremendous pressure, and
he waa also permitted to gaze on the
jug whose handle proved so fatal

Early Lamb. j
In rearing early Iambs, several meth
ods are followed by different men. One
is to buy tbe ewes as early as possible in
the summer, wherever they can be
found. As soon as tbey are housed in
the fall they are sheared and kept in
doors all the time for tliey will feed
better after the wool is removed. They
are fed heavily right along and sold
fat, a short time after the lambs are
gone, when mutton is usually high. In
this way a profit is made en the ewes
aa well as on the early lambs and wool.
But it is often difficult to get suitable
sheep early enough. Most sheep
brought in this way are fine wools and,
although they are more hardy and may
be kept in larger flocks, they are not as
good for milk as the mutton breeds.
Another way is to select the eves more
carefully at the start," rejecting the
poorer ones each year and replacing
them with lambs of your own breeding.
This is more expensive, but one will
soon have just such a flock as ho wishes.
Each method has its advantages. Ewes
from the mutton breeds are better for
milk and are more prolific breeders than
fine wools. But whatever kind of
ewea are used, the lambs should be the
beat to be bad from one of the mutton
breeds, preferable one of the downs.
I do not know of tlie Oxfordthire
downs being used for this, but tbey are
claimed to be fine sheep for native mut
ton. The reason for useing rams from
one of these breeds -are, tbey imprest
upon their lambs a tendency to fatten
jnore readily; they give bettor size and
the facet are dark. That lambs should
have dark faces may be only a fancy,
but tbey bring better prices than white
faced onea. Finely-bred ees of these
breeds art not plenty enough nor cheap
enough to use to any great extent for
this purpose. Hampshire downs are
favorites with many for this business.
One of tbe moat difficult things in
raising these early lambs it to get tbe
ewes to take the ram early enough in
in tha summer. To obivato this dif
ficulty a new brted has been brought

i eeaiag Crap.
A word as to seeding crops may not
be out of place at this time. With the
price of wheat, com and oats advanc
ing as they have during the summer,
there is a tendency, almost irresistble,
on Ihe part of tbe farmer to hold on to
his crops in the hope that the upward
limit of prices lias not yet been reached
and t natural desire to reap the advant
age of any further rise. We believe
however, taking one year with anothei
that the farmer who sells bis grain
crops as soon after they are harvested
as possible, gets the largest net return
from them. The loss by holding, aris
ing from shrinkage- in weight, depre
dations by mice and insecta, and inter
est on the grain and on the necessary
esjiecially constructed granaries to hold
it, will more than equal in a series ol
years any rise in the price of grain
Wo believe the present year will provt
no exception to this rule. The Practi
