fa rum's Sfllirmu,
Onr experience has taught us that on the approach
of rain we must drive our flocks to their shelter, and
confine them there, if we wish to know that they are
dry comfortable. When a storm commences violent
ly they will generally run to their shed, but when it
abates they will go out and standby tbe hour in the
rain or sleet, and we have frequently found them ly
ing in the morning after a snow storm, with the snow
as thick on their backs, as it was on the ground
while onh a few feet from them was a commodious
shed, well littered, dry, and comfortable.
It seems strange, at first though, that sheep do
not seek shelter immediately on the approach of a
storm ; but when wo consider the amount of clothing
with which they are provided, we can easily per
ceive ; why they neglect to themselves until their
fleeces are saturated. Fine wooled sheep, especially,
are so well clothed during the winter that they can
remain in a shower some time before it reaches the
skin, when they begin to feel uncomfortable and
chilly ; but it is then to.) late to be benefitted so
much by the shelter, and for a long time there is a
great demand upon the system for animal heat to
dry their coats, and this is done at the expense of
their health and food,
Our plan for taking a flock of sheep through the
winter would be this —for stock sheep. A eommodi
modious, well-ventilated shed, with a yard about
twice as large (or a little smaller) attached, supplied
with water. In the morning, drive the sheep all out
into the yard and close the gate or door, and fill their
racks with good clover hay ; open the gate and let
them in to feed, and if tho weather be suitable, fas
ten it open that they may have access to the yard
and water at pleasure ; if it is stormy, fasten them
in the shed. At noon feed them sheaf oats, —a good
sized sheaf to twenty-five Merinos, —or other grain,
with the addition of good, bright straw.
At night feed them good hay or straw, and fasten
them in, lest a storm should come up and give their
coats a wetting. If it is clear, scttlod weather, and
especially when moonlight, give them tho range of
the yard, as they appear to enjoy the open air at
such times, and dry , cold weather will not hurt them
The sheds and yards should bo dry, and well littered
with straw. Driving the sheep out while the racks
are being filled will enable you to do it with much
less trouble than when they are crowding around, as
they will do, especially if tho flock is large Cor.

SALT IN THE MANURE HEAP.
One of the most economical articles about yards
end stables is salt. It is just as good to feed to tho
manure heap as to cattlo. It is best aj plied in a
weak solution in water with a cogamon watering pot
Whether salt does or does not supply direct plant
food, ic at least prevents the escape of ammona, the
most raluable part of tbe manure heap. This gas
is always leaving animal manure, unless there is
plenty of moisture present, or some agent to absorb
it. Salt does this without arresting the decomposi
tion of the mass. Sea-shore farmers make a large
use of sea-weed, without fully understanding the
philosophy of its action. It is carted into th • styes
and barnyards soveral times in the course of the
year, and intimately mixed with the droppings of
the cattle.—Thus all the best parts of the manure
are saved by the salt, and a large addition is made
to iU bulk by the vegetable matter of tho sea weed.
These weeds gathered from the shoro are good ma
v Bare by themselves, but are still more valuable
when decomposed and statural with manure drip
pings as they pass through the styo and yard on
their way to the plowed field or meadow.
A NEW WAT TO COOK BEEF. —When you get hold
of a good thing, it is well to " communicate " Hav
ing learned this cooking beef within a few
years, we find it so much tho best way that no ween
• apses without a meal of beef steaming on our table.
To steam beef, procure a cast iron pot, of large di
mensions, having at tho bottom a shoulder, which is
found in most largo iron pots, at the point where the
diameter is diminished to fit the hole in the stove.
Across this hole you place some pieces of shin -le ;
then fill up the pot to the shingles with water, aiding
few pieces of lemon peel or a little mace if you
please; place the meat upon the shingles; cover up
tight with a fitted tin cover; place over a hot firo and
wait till done. You must be careful to add wateroc
taeionally ; for if it should all boil away, of course
the gravy would be burned, and the flavor of tho
meat injured. When finished, tbe bottom of the pot
contains a large quantity .-f most excellent gravy,
which, of course, must be thickened and seasoned.
A rump of beef, or a shoulder, forms an excellent
piece to operate on. Mutton is also fine. Try it
CHANGING SEEDS. —The Irih Agricultural Review
says : " The practice of frequently changing seeds is
BOW recognized in many sections as ossentiai to the
production of a first-rate crop. We all know that the
practice of procuring seed potatoes from a distance
20 or 25 miles—and from different kinds of soil, has
most marked influence on the product. While the
rationale of this is not quite obvious, the fact is indis
putable. The same result follows also in the mauage
ment of corn, wheat, pumpkins, beans, and garden
seeds Even where cxchangos are made between
farmers-in the s mo neighborhood, and where ther 0
is no very mark- d difference in the geological or min
eral characteristics of the soil in the respective local
ities, tho pract ce is still productive of improvement.
Let those who never tried the experiment do so ; ou

mark the results, both as regards quantity and quali
GLOSSING LlNEN —lnquiry is frequently made re
•pecting the mode of putting a gloss on linen collar"
and shirt bosoms, like that on new linen This gloss
or enamel, as it is sometimes called, is produced
mainly by friction with a warm iron, and may be put
on linen by almost any person. The linen to be glaz- I
ed receives as much stareb as it is possible to charge
it With, then it is dried. To each pound of starch a
piece of sperm, parafine, or white wax, about tho size
•fa walnut, is usually ad ied. AVhen ready to be
ironed, tho linen is laid upon the table and moistened j
■lightly on the surface with a clean wet cloth. It is
then ironed in tie usual way with a flat iron rounded j
at the bottom and polished as bright as a mirror, is
used. It is pressed firmly upon the linen and rubbed
with much force, and this f-ictional action puts on the
gloss. " Elbow grease" is the principle secret con
nected with the art of glossing linen. — Scientific

; their respective areticles. One was a Yankee, the

then it was exposed throe days to the most intense
heat. When the door was opened, the coek stalked
out, flapped his wings and crowed loudly, as if noth
ing had happened. It was now the Yankee's turn.
A cock had also been shut up in one of his safes,
with a pound of fresh butter, and the safe was sub
mitted to the trial ef a tremendous heat for more
than a week. The legs of the safe were melted off,
and the door itself was so far fused as te require the
use of a cold chisel to get it open. When it was
opened, the cock was found frozen dead, and the but

medicine is burdened with more or less of acri
monious and injurious qualities, !>v this each indi
j vidual virtue only that is desired for the curativs
effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual
ities of each substance employed are left behind, the
■ curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is
self-evident the effects should prove, as they hav
proved, more purely remedial, and tho Pills a urr,
more powerful antidote to disease than any othar
medicine known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my medicis#
should be taken under the counsel of an attending
Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a
remedy without knowing its composition, I havi
[ supplied the accurate Fornnihe by which !>oth my
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body ef
Practitioners in the United States ar.d British Amet
j ican Provinces. If, however, there should be any
j one who has not received them, they will be
promptly forwarded bv mail to his request.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how
few would be taken if their composition was known *
Their life consists in their mystery. I have n
I The composition of my preparations is laid opts
j to all men, and all who are competent to judge on
I ; the subject freely acknowledge their convictions of
j their intrinsic merits. The Clierrv Pectoral wu
pronounced by scientific men to be a wonderful
, qaedicine before its effects were known. Many en
i incut Physicians have declared the same thing of
my Pills, and even more confidently, and are will
! ing to certify that their anticipations were more
1 than realized* by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the
■ internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it
I into healthy action remove the obstructions of
| the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of the
body, restoring their irregular action to Health, ud
by correcting, wherever they exist, such derange
ments as are the first origin of disease.
Being sugar-wrapped, they are pleasant to take,
and being purely vegetable, no harm can arise froes
their use in anv quantity.
