sb eep Breeding and Management.
While a well-maned flock pays
n every season, affording ample
pecuniary encouragement to its
Lner to preserve a high standard
of excellence, by the continual in
fus j 0 u of new blood from the best
grains in the county, there are yet
vears exceptionally good, when the
pillar breeder makes a large sum
o “er the profits ordinarily gained,
by the sudden increase in value of
discription of stock. The
present, year affords an example of
| b is, quite striking enough to draw
the attention ot all connected with
husbandry, either as breeders, feed
er dealers. The demand for
sheep daring the past six months
has been usually brisk, and prices
have risen in a corresponding ratio,
flow the breeders are making up
their stocks for the ensuing season,
it becomes actually difficult to pur
chase any lot with the least preten
tion 10 character without having to
give a fancy price for it; and those
who are fortunate enough to hold
largely add very considerable to the
receipts which might be fairly calcu
lated on as the result oi capital judb
ciously invested. In former years,
when a run upon sheep occurred,
the high prices were principally con
ined to the best breeds, but of late
a\\ descriptions have participated in
the rise of value, from the shaggy
mountaineer, requiring years to
fatten, to the magnificent Cotswold
or Southdown,whose native pastures
are of the best grass, and whose
ripe maturity is attained in the
brief period of twelve months. The
excellent milking properties of the
poorer breeds of sheep, and the val
uable offsprings they are thus ena
bled to rear when crossed with a
first-class ram, is the principal rea
son fpr their gradually assuming a
forward position in public estima
tion, this coupled with the cheap
rate at which, till now the ewes
could be brought in. and the supe
rior quality of the mutton when of
the right age, has apparently kept
up a continually increasing demand,
Tyhioh has at length resulted in
comparative scarcity, and very
great increase in value.
In choosing a flock of ewes to hold
over for breeding purposes, there is
cot, the slightest occasion for having

symmetry, or even of extra large

although not distinguish for fault*
lessness of symmetry himself, yet
be able to transmit to his progeny
all the good qualities of his race.
At present the run on the white-faced
breeds is particularly noticable, the
sums realized at recent sales for
yearling rams of this variety being
something extraordinary. To some
extent this preference may be traced
to tiie superior clip of wool which
can be secured from the white-faced
breeds, and the high value at which
it now rates; but undoubtedly the
prefection of form which breeders of
this class of sheep have attained,
and the great weights which they
can be fed up at an early age, is the
principal reason for the high position
they now hold in the estimation of
the public. If possible, rams should
be purchased from a well-known
flock, good wool and bone, which,
while not coarse, is yet of sufficient
strength to carry a heavy carcass.

Decomposing: Action of Hamas Upon
Every one who has studied the
growth of plants must have come to
the conclusion that it Is necessary
to look beyond the gasses of the air
and the carbonic acid, water of the
ground to account for the power of
vegetables to decompose many min
eral substances. It is evident that
some other acids come into play and
exert a decisive influence. Herr
Senet, of Eisenach, Gerraanyj has
submitted the question to a long
series of investigations and the con
clusions at which he arrives are well
worthy the attention of scientific
men. The researches of Mr. Senet
go far to comfirm the shrewd theory
advanced by Henry Wurtz of New
York, that the organic acids have
played a much more important part
in the formation of roclcs aud miner
als than geologists have been in the
habit of conceding. It is evident
that plants, while living, are able,
by the product of their growth, to
act upon insoluble minerals and ap
propriate certain constituents of
their wants, and that, when the
plant is dead, it can, during the
process of decay, produce acids that
either dissolve minerals or render
them soluable. The whole question
offers a fine field of research to the
chemical geologist. Journal of
There is a certain satisfaction in
worn-out land, but I am yearly more
and more convinced that it pays
better and gives much better satis
faction to farm land that does not
need reclaiming. There are few
soils now so rich that they will not
make more improvement and pay
better returns for the same amount
of labor and manure than an ex
uasted and worthless one will. “The
best first” is my motto. When the
very best field of the farm has been
so improved that it will not pay for
more improving, then go to the next
best; but land like a good
plough, is more profitable
with than poor land, and should
enjoy the concentration of our best
efforts. When it is so rich and in
such good condition that further
outlay will not materially benefit it,
then move on to another field ; but
don’t spend money and time in
draining and clearing a swamp for
the sake of a half crop, when the
same expense will give a doable
crop on better land.— George E.
