SOUSE AMD FARM.
Sb»ll WeWaih Onr Sheep.
The Passumsic Farmers’ Club
bare been *discuB«ing r this question,
an( j what the members said, as re
ported in the Vermont - Farmer, is
go expressive of general experience,
we think, that it is well to open the
discussion among shepherds by pub
j. P. Foster —I am opposed to
washing. It injures the sheep and
men who wash them j but as
loner as buyers offer a premium’ for
dirt wc shall be tempted to wash.
If buyers would pay strictly accord
ing to cleanliness and careful pack
in<r no such temptation would exist.
I carried two small lots of wool to a
buyer, both washed —one well wash
and nicely put up, and the other
washed lightly—and manufac
turers said there was full five cents
p er pound difference; still each lot
was sold to the same man and at
the same price. I believe that no
farmer should wash his sheep. We
could shear one month earlier with
ouUumshmg with greater safety for
the sheep. Buyers make one-fourth
difference between washed and un
washed wool. Poor sheep are
nearh spoiled by driving to the
washir-; place and back, carrying
the weight of water in the wool. It
i; much better to shear before the
-sheep leave the barn. In shearing
late vve lose ranch of the wool, I
once sheared in June. There had
been some very hot weather, but a
few days after shearing it came on
very cold, and I lost two and a
neighbor seven from the cold. Man
ufacturers prefer to buy unwashed
C. U, Barker—l wash clean when
I wash. I find I get no morejor
well-washed wool than those who do
hut halt wash. I think we should
none of us wash, then the price of
wool would be more uniform.
J. G. Lawrence—There is a great
dLie encj in the unwashed wool, as
cjuch as between ordinary and well
washed. It is very difficult to make
an even tiling of this wool business.
Taost who wash and shear late lose
Vq wool what the bushes in the pas-
Vitt from the sheep. Should
ire a/f adopt tbe plan of not washing
ve would jjet nearer the real value
for oar wool than now. I think we
should encourage all the farmers to
dispense with washing,
J. Morrison —l wash ray sheep.
I get more money to wash than not
to, I wash dean, put up well, and
get a fair price for ray wool. Ido
not think it hurts sheep very much
to wadi them. Always keep them
under cover in stormy weather.
J. Dow—l find that I get the
most money for my wool when I
half wash, and the least when I do
uot wash at all. The-men who buy
the wool are not judges ; they pay
so much for washed and so mnch
for unwashed, and often buy with
out looking at the wool at all. If
any advantage of the manu
facturer we are smart, that’s all. I
believe there is nothing to be gained
■u ti;e long run by washing. We
a}} wash or none. I think
; better discard washing en
h. P. Harvey —Does it pay to
sheep Coarse wool sheep
P-ony washed may give better re
turu> than unwashed, if we let them
- ln tsv ° °r three weeks after being
u ' l< hcd, ami let them roll in the
an d dirt as they will when they
C3a find it. The great trouble is
ignorance of the buyers.
L- y cannot tell half of the time
Wp-er the wool is wa-hed or not.
c ma ntifacturer has nothing to do
the buying only to make the
k'co, and he is careful to make it
lj u tnuugh for all the poor washing,
i, ‘ l 1 d las buyer finds poor washed
the price is all right, and if he
t ‘ L ‘* well-washed wool it is his
luck,-and so much in his fa
ur. I sorted wool ten years in a
, aCl&1 . v > aQ d know how the wool is
° u ght and handled.
j ‘ —For three years past
ia>e not washed ray sheep ; I get
returns than when I washed.

lose as much wool as the discount

Elastic V arxi§h fob Ladies’
Shoes. —The Manufacturer and
Builder furnishes this receipt:
Three pounds of rain water are plac
ed in a pot over the fire, and when
well boiling there are added 4 ounc
es white pulverized wax, 1 ounce
clear, transparent glue in small Sen
egal, 2 ounces white soap scraped
fine, 2 ounces pulverized sugar; the
ingredients are placed in one by
one, and, every time up; it
is well to take the pot from the fire
every time a substance is added, to
prevent boiling over; when all is
added the pot is removed from the
fire; when sufficiently cooled, 3
ounces alcohol are added, and finally
three ounces fine Frankfort black,
welP incorporated by continued
stirring. This varnish is put on
the leather with a brush, and is very
valuable for boots and shoes, as it
can be afterwards polished with a
large brush like ordinary shoe
blacking, shows a high polish, and
does not soil the clothing.
Breakfast Puffs. —Take 2 eggs
well beaten and stir into a pint of
milk a little salt, a pint of butter
and a pint and a half of flour. Beat
the eggs and stir the milk. Add
the salt, melt the butter and stir in.
Then pour all into the flour, so as
not to have it lumpy. Stir up thor
oughly, and grease the cups into
which the batter is poured, filling
them two-thirds full. Eat with
Jelly Cake (to roll). —Three
eggs, i teacup of sugar; |l table
spoonful of cream ; J small teaspoon*
ful of soda. Bake five minutes.
Pie Crust.—Good pie crust is
made by wetting it up with cream
instead of water and not taking so
much lard tor shortening. It is
sweet, tender and melting, and a
good deal more Wealthy. I should
have said I take sour cream.
Custard Cake.—Three eggs, 1
cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour. Bake
in jelly pake tins ° layers. Custard
for the above; Halt a pint of milk,
2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons
of flour, 1 egg. Boil the custard
and flavor with vanilla.
Cracker Pies. —Take 6 soda
crackers, break them into a dish
and pour over them 2 cups of cold
water. Let them stand until they
can be reduced to a pulp. Add A
cups of sugar, 2 teaspoons of tartaric
acid and flavor to taste with lemon.
This is sufficient for two.pies.
Dish fob Breakfast. —Take
half a dozen or as many as necessa
ry, good cooking apples, cut them
in slices about a quarter ot an inch
thick; have ready a pan of fresh,
hot lard. Drop the slices in and
fry brown. A little hot sugar
sprinkled over improves them.
Hominy Pudding.—How to make
a hominy pudding. Prepare as for
batter cakes, add 1 egg for each
pint, some whole cinnamon, sugar
to suit taste, and a few raisins; bake
like pice pudding. A little butter
or chopped suet may be added.
Serve hot or cold, with or without
An Omelet. —Four eggs beaten
separately, 1 small teaspoonful of
milk # a piece of butter the size of a
walnut melted, and put in the milk,
uneven teaspoonful of flour. Put
in lastly the whites of the eggs well
beaten, bake in a quick oven, either
in a tin or earthen pan.
Stewed Celery.—Wash 2 large
heads of celery, throw away the
leaves and green stocks, and cut the
heart and white stocks into pieces
about an inch long. Put these in
fast boiling water, and boil them
till very tender. Put into stew
pan a gill of cream, a little salt,
white pepper and pounded mace;
put it over the fire,-and when it
simmers drain the celery and put it
into the cream. Boil up once and
Ribbons.—To iron ribbons take a
moderately hot flatiron on the ironing
board, then place the ribbon on the
left side of the iron and pull it through
underneath the iron. If the ribbon is
not pulled too fast, and the iron is
the right warmth, this will be found.
to be a much better way than simply
rubbing the iifon over the ribbon.
