Jim. "Well, yoa got a lot of
lambs, too, they were clear profit,"
U. A. "We castrated a lot of ram,
lambs and lost over half of them.
So much for one year. The next
winter the scab came on again aad
beside it a new trouble. . The scab
made them loose the wool, bat the
"nasty varmints' were not satisfied
.with that, they begaa to eat the little
wool left by the scab."
Jim. "That was bad, bat J saw

U. A. "Yes, by feeding them a

lambs had caught it, and there was
no help but shearing them. It was
rather late in the season, and about

Jim. "Bat you had sheared your
lambs, aud no doabt realized a snog

U. A. "Yes, if it had not been
for the cock leburrs the wool hay

a little batch about $15."
Jim. "You seem to hare pretty
bad luck with your sheep."
U. A. "Not more so than other
people. I hear others complain of
all these and many other troubles
and annoyances and losses of sheep."
Jim. "And yet everybody either
has sheep or is going to get some."
" U. A. "Some few may have bet
ter lock with them than I had, and
if 'you are getting some I hope you
will be one of the lucky ones. If
you, however, follow my advice,
you will get cows for your money,
instead of sheep, and my reasons for
such-advice are briefly these: --You
can sever keep your sheep (if they
are clean) from petting scabby. Ev
ery post, every tree, every wagon or
other implement on a farm where
scabby sheep are kept is infected.
On every rod of the ranche they
pasture, the disease will be caught
by -cleaa sheep. At one time of the
year they have to be guarded against
the wild oats. Then come the cock
leburrs, -the eandburrs and other
weeds. If you don't keep them
away from your cattle and horses
they are kicked and gored (some of
mine bad big ruptures)? the hogs
will eat your lambs, wolves and
dogs will kill your sheep, and who
knows all the troubles and annoy
ances connected with sheep farming.
I advise you, Jimmy, my boy, in
stead of sheep, get as many good
cows as you can, send the milk to
the creamery, and you will make
money, and. save yourself a great
deal of botheration."
- Jim. "I believe you are right and
I will follow your good advice."
Selectiaa; See Crau
We notice an article going the
rounds of the agricultural press, oa
the .beet method of saving seed corn,
and' with very little variation the
same ideas have been rehashed for a
generation. The article in question
advises going into the field and se
lecting the first ripe ears, and espe
cially securing those where two ears
grow on one stalk. Now this is all
yery well in the northern borders,
where early ripening is a first essen
tial, and the small dwarfish corn
naturally bears several small ears,
and it is with sach corn that this
selection originated. In the great
corn belt of Ohio, Illinois, and Indi
ana, if corn matures by the last of
September it is better than if it were
earlier. All early products are
dwarfed in habit JNo one ever saw
the largest, plumpest ear of yellow
corn the first to ripen. . This early,
ripening indicates dwarfish, habit;
aad lessened yield. The longer the
corn is maturing if it escape frost,
the greater the yield, other things
DeWeqSlf- - - -iAaaarerjtly,
there is rain by two
ears oa a-sulk, bat if the two are ao
larger, tthanane ongatto be, who
would aot rather have the one?
Besides, encouraging the growth of
many ears on a stalk, brings oat
their undesirable babits. Thus, at
every joint or node,Uhere is the
capacity of starting an ear, but if all
grew there would not be vitality
enough to perfect any of them.
Now if ali the vital force be .thrown'

roach more perfect than two or more
could be. Againiftae tendency, be
eacoaraged for all the joists to
throw out ears, the same effects the
lower joints which throws out
"suckers," aad these drink ap the
juices of the plant, aad are more
detrimental than weeds, and to get
rid of which requires a great deal of
hard labor. This tendency to suck
er, prevents the throwing out of the
brace-roots which are of value as
mechanical support as well as essen
If a fodder corn is wanted, the
many eared sucking kind is prefer
able, but wbea cora is grown from
the grain, one perfect ear Is the best.
Now. how shall that ear Deselect

parts of a plant are ia harmony, and
connected with each other. No one
eversnwahrgeshortearon a tall,
slim' stalk, aors loag earon a thick
sulk, the stalk and ear are thus re
lated. Tall stalks are not desirable,
for they are mare liable to be blown
down by the winds. The best stalk
is thick at the' butt, asd rapidly ta
pers upward, aad ought, to be less
than tea feet ia height.- It should
bear one aaf of -like propor
tion. lThis ear should be placed
low down and have from twenty to
twenty-six rows, well-filled at the
tip, and the stem small, so as to be
easily broken. The kernel should
be deepwith little or none of the
roughness of the blackberry. The
cob will, of course, be, larger than,
that of the twelve aad sixteen rowed
long eared varieties, for so great a
number of rows necessitates this, but
we cannot "understand why this is
regarded as- objectionable. We do
not knew as there is any fixed limit
to the number of rows on the ear,
which could be gained by selection
aad high culture. From actual ex
periments running through the last
seven years, I have secured what
may be regarded as a permanency
of twenty-four rows, with many
ears of twenty-six and twenty-eight,
and occasionally an ear with thirty
two and even thirty-six. There is
no plant more sensitive to selection
and culture than corn, and none
which better repays such care.
It will be seen from the foregoing
that in selecting seed,-we must look
further than simply to the ear. Its
form is a type of the stalk on which
it grew and will reproduce. Still
farther, if the best results are de
sired the tip of the ear should be
rejected for seed. ' The reason of
this will be evident when the growth
of the ear is understood. The germs
at the base are first to start, and the
process extends upward, until at
last when the tip is reached the vital
force is exhausted, and the kernels
grow smaller, vitality begin to be
exhausted, and the ear should be cut
at that point. ' '
These details may be regarded as
frivolous aad of little consequence,
but when we consider how stock
are improving by just such atten
tion to seeming trifles, we shall
ce&se to doubt. The time to select
is at husking when all the field
passes in 'review.' If a desirable
variety is planted, a few bushels of
ears can readily be t selected,, and
after 'these are dried, from r them
those which approach the type. fixed
in the miad as the right one, may be
taken and cut or shelled back to the
point where the kernels are fully
The kernels at the base of the ear
have been objected to, but their
form is the only real objection, and
it is doubtful if they would be any
gain in cutting them off. , .,
In this manner, seed may be .se
cured which will send up strong
vigorous' sprouts and the increased
yield will many times repay the care
bestowed: Hudson Tultle in the

herewith append a receipt, a Paris
physician says, which has been need
to. my knowledge in hundreds of
cases. It will prevent or cure the
smallpox though the pittings are
filling. When Jenner discovered
cowpox iu -England the world hurl
ed an avalanche of fame on his head,
but when the most scientific school
of medicine in the world that of
Paris published the recipe as a
panacea for smallpox, it passed un
heeded." It is as .unfailing as fate,
and conquers in every instance. It
is harmless when taken by a well
person. It will also cure scarlet
fever. Here is the recipe as I have
used it, and cured my children of
scarlet fever; here it is as I have
used it to core the smallpox ; when
learned physicians said the patient
must die,, it cured. Sulphate of
zinc, one grain ; foxglove (digitalis),
one grain; half a teaspoonful of
sugar; mix with two tablespoon fuls
of water. When thoroughly mixed,
add four oaaces of water. Take a
spoonful every hour. Either disease
will disappear iu twelve hours. For
a child, smaller doses, according to
age. If counties would compel their
physicians to use this there would
be no need of pest-houses. If yon

for that terrible disease.
A young lady who graduated from
a high school last July is teaching
school up in New Hampshire. 'A
bashful young geatlemaa visited the
school the other day, and was asked
by the teacher to say a few words to
the pupils. This was his speech:
"Scholars, I hope you will always
love your school and your teacher as
much as I do." Tableau-Giggling
boys and girls aad a Mashing achool-
The greet thinker is seldom a dis
putant. Ha answers other men's
argwmeats by stating the truth as
he tees it.
What is a Cteaslesaaa?
It is almost a definition ot a gen;
tletnau to say he is one who never
inflicts pain. This description is
both refined and, as far as it jroec,
accurate. He .is mainly occupied in
merely removing the obstacles which
hinder the. free and unembarrassed
action of those about him; and he
concurs with their movements rath
er than takes the initiative himself.
His benefits may be considered the
parallel .to what are called comforts
or convenience in arrangements of a
personal nature ; like any easy chair
or a good fire, which do their part
in dispelling cold and fatigue,though
aatureprovides means of rest aud
animal heat without them.
The true gentleman in like manner
carefully avoids whatever may cause
a jar or a jolt in the minds of those
with whom he is cast ; all clashing
of opinion, or collision of feeling, all
restraint or suspicion, or gloom, or
resentment ; his great concern being
.to make every one at their ease and
at home. He had hi6 eyes on all his
company; he is tender toward the
bashful, gentle towards the distant
and merciful towards the absurd;
he guards against unseasonable allu
sions or topics whicb,may irritate ?
be is seldom prominent in conversa
tion, and never is wearisome. He
makes light of favors while he does
them, and seems to be receiving
when he is conferring.
He never speaks of himself except
when compelled, never defends him
self by a mere retort; he has no ear
for slander or gossip, is scrupulous
in imputing motives to those who
interfere with him and . interprets
everything for the best. He is nev
er 'mean or little in his disputes,
never takes unfair advantages, never
mistakes personalities or sharp say
ings for arguments, or insinuates
evils which he dare not say ont.
From a. long sighted prudence he
observes the maxim of the ancient
sage, that we should conduct our
selves .toward our enemy as if he
were one day to be our friend. He
has too much good sense to be af
fronted at insults, and is too well
employed to remember injuries. He
is patient, forbearing and resigned,
on philosophical principles. He sub
mits to pain, because it Is irrepara
ble ; to death, because it is his desti
ny. If he engagos in controversy ot
any kind, his disciplined intellect
preserves him from the blundering
discourtesy of better,- perhaps, but
less educated minds, who, like blunt
weapons, tear and hack instead of
cutting clean, who mistake the point
in argument, waste their strength on
trifles, misconceive their adversary,
and leave the question more involv
ed than they find it. He may be
right or wrong in his opinion, but
he is as simple as he is forcible, and
as brief as he is decisive. - Nowhere
shall we find greater candor, consid
eration, indulgence. He throws him
self into the minds of his opponents,
he accounts for their mistakes, he
knows the weakness of human rea
son, as well as its provinces and its
limits. If he be an unbeliever he
will, be too profound and too large
minded to ridicule religion or to act
against it ; he is too wise to be a
dogmatist or fanatic in his infideli
ty. He respects piety and devotion ;
he even supports institutions as
venerable, beautiful or useful, to
which be does not assent; he honors
the ministers of religion, and it con
tents him to decline its mysteries
without assailing or denouncing
them. He is a friend of religious
toleration, and that, not only be
cause his philosophy has taught him
to look upon all forms of faith with
an impartial eye, but also from the
gentleness of feeling, which is the
attendant on civilization.
Make Mease Caeerial.
A lady correspondent of the De
troit Free Press says : I know boys
who have gone astray and saddened
the hearts of parents, and yet the
fault was with the parents. The
only way to keep your boys free
from crime and stain is to keep them
as close .to your hearts as possible.
The boy who is "tied to his mother's
apron string" seldom goes wrong. I
like that kind of a boy, he is honeBt,
kindly, polite and manly to a fault.

When I hear a wife complaining
about her husband's club and his
constant attendance upon it, I al
ways desire to see her at supper
time. J have an idea that she sits
at the evening meal in a dirty calico,
with slippers down at the heel,
clotbes-pln pinning her dress at the
collar, no signs of ribbon or bow,
and her hair as frowzy as the tout
ensemble of a political primary. I
fancy that her face wears an air so
icy that her husband catches cold
every lime he looks at her. A
sloucby, untidy, frowning wife can
not compete with a club or a bil
liard room to save her life. If she
wants her better-half (in this in
stance) to stay at home, let her wear
the old smile, neat dresses and tasty
coiffure she wore when he wsb
courting her. Let the room be clean
and the ire brightly burning. Let
her commence an honest endeavor
to make home a brighter, sunnier
spot than the club and the saloon,
and she'll sooa get over her heart
aches. If a boy is wanted to grow op a
lover of home, home must be made
worth the laving! Don't crowd
him down ; donvtf keep telling him
that boye should be scon not heard ;

the physician who says otherwise
should not doctor a sick pump or a
diseased ironing-board forme. And
further, don't send your boy to bed
at half-past seven o'clock. I've

nine out of ten grew up rascals, and
the tenth was an idiot. Such boys

The soundings of a bridge across
the Missouri at Blair still continue,
under direction of Mr. McKean, who
constructed the Missouri bridge at
Bismarck. The engineer reported to
a correspondent of the Sioux City
Journal that he found rock at the
depth of forty feet below the surface,
which would be that much in favor
of a bridge. At Omaha the rock" Is
about eighty feet below the surface.
The rock at Blair, the engineer says,
is only a shell four feet thick.
Whether it is firm enough to serve
as a bare to a bridge pier he did not
say. The river at Blair has been
cutting toward the Nebraska side
the past season, and is now about
eighty rods from the Blair bluffs. If
the river can be confined to its pres
ent channel, the bother about build
ing a bridge at Blair would not be
so great. But the Iowa bank is a
wide sandbar, and the river for some
distance up and down is flat and
shifting. The engineer declined to
express any opinion as to whether
the Blair bridge site is practicable.
Of the survey of the river the Blair
correspondent of the Omaha Repub
lican writes: "A party of civil, en
gineers in the interest of the Sioux
City and Pacific railroad have been
for some time at work along the
river near the ferry, and the prevail
ing opinion is that a bridge across
the Missouri is definitely located at
this point, and that the work will be
commenced tho prespnt season."
Being once iu company with ,a
mother aud her threo children, we
observed one of them, a boy about
six years old, who was particularly
unruly and mischievous. At one
act of his rudeness his mother, being
somewhat excited, turned to him
and threatened to punish him se
veroly if he should repeat it. In a
few minutes the little fellow did
precisely the same thing, and as the
mother did not notico it, we ventur
ed to say to him : "Did you hear
your mothor say she would punish
you, if you did that again?" The
urchin, with the expression of a
bravado on his counteuance, quickly
replied: "I'm not afraid; mother
often says she'll whip me, but she
don't do it." The mother smiled, as
if her little boy had really said a
smart thing; but alas! she was
teaching him a lesson of insubordi
nation which would probably make
her heart ache. Mother, never un

do threaten, be careful not to falsify

Dr. R..I. Kendall & Co.. Gents:! had
a vi-ry valuable natDbfnteatiin colt
which I prized very niUir; had a
large-fiouH Spavin-on lue joint and a
smaller oi on the, other which made
him very Iain'; I had him under the
charge of two Vctrina y Surgeeas
,whicb failed to cure.blm. I was one
day reading the advert tarlaeat of Ken
dall's Spavin Cur la the Chicago Ex
press, 1 determitipd at once toc try it
'and gotoiir'Drnggista hereto scad for
It, they ordered, thrge bottles I took
them all and thought I would give it a
thorough trial, i I uied it according to
directions aad by the fourth day the
colt ceased to be lame, and the lumps
had'efttirely disappeared: I used but
one bottle and the colts limbs are as free
lrom lumps and as smooth as any horse
lathe state. He is entirely cured. The
cure was so remarkable that I let two
of my neighbors have the remaining two
bottles,, who are now using It. Verv

Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents: In
reply to your letter I will say that my
experience with "Kendall's Spavin
Cure" hat. beeu very satisfactory in
deed. Three or four years ago I pro
cured a-bottle of your agent, and with
it, cured a horse of lameness callped by
a spavin. Last season my horse became
very lame and I turned him out for a
few weeks when he became bctter,.but
when I put him on the road he grew
worse, when I discovered that a ring
bone was forming. 1 procured a bottle
of Kendall's Spavin Cure and with Irs
than a bottle cured him so that be Is not
lame, neither can the bunch be tound:

Til J. Kendall & Co., Gents: In jus
tice to you aad myself, I think I ought
to let yon know that I have removed
two bone spavins with "Kendall's Spav
in Cure," one very large one, don't
know how long the spavin had been
there. I have owned the horse eight
months. It took me four months to take
the large one'ofT. aad two for the sui-ill
one. I have used ten bottles. The horse
Is tatirely well, not at all stiff, and no
baneh tobe seen or felt., This Is a won
derful medicine. It is a new thing
here, but if it does for all what it has
done for an its sale will be very great.

SPA YIN CUBE
STATEMENT MADE UNDER
To Whom it May Concern. In tho
year 1875 I treated with "Kendall's
Spavin Cure," a bone spavin of several
months' growth, nearly half as large at
a hens egg, aad completely stopped the
lameness and removed tbe enlargement.
I have worked the horse ever since very
hard, and he never has been lame, nor
could I ever see any difference in tbe
size of the hock joints since I treated
him with ''KeudaJl's Spavin Cure."
