Curling.
A meeting of the curling club wus
held in Ibe city hull on Tuesday evening, President Kincaid in the chair.
The canvassing committee icpoited
that ubout 10 names had been secured
of those intending to cuil provided
satisfactory anaugements were made
witb tbe Rink company.
After some discussion the representatives of tbe Kink company mode the
club an offer   to supply two sheets of
culling ice for $250,   which  was  accepted.     The  caretaker  of the   rink
will be entirely under thecontiolof
the club and take  all ordeis for putting same in proper shape from J. H
Jackson, who   was appointed an ice
committee.  _ The   Rink management
are also installing elect lie lights in the
link, and each sheet of ice will be lit
up by, thirteen 18  c. p.   lamps.   The
walls Jof the curling links will also be
whitewashed.     These  improvements
will make the Revelstoke links among
tbe best lit in  the Kootenay, and add
not  a  little   to   the pleasure  of   the
devotees ot the game.
The election of skips ipsulted as
follows:���XV. A. Slui-dy, J. A. Dallas,
T. J. Graham, H. A. Biuwn, G."S. Mc-
Cai tsi', F. B. Lewis, XV. A. Foote, A.
McRae, D. Mr" Rae, ���_)_ E. Phipps, ...
H. Jackson. Any member of the club,
however, has the privilege of skipping
a rink, should ,be so desire, whether
elected to the position or not.
A most stringent enforcement of the
rules will be maintained this*season in
regaid to the playing of games when
scheduled, etc. The prospects of the
club have never been brighter than at
piesent, and th'e season promises to
be one of the most successful in the
history of the club. '

" Seen at theStiat'icona last evening Mr. McBride snd that his tup

he could not speak very definitely at

Si Wilflid Lauiiei, dining winch

several departments were discussed
These matters, the pieinier intimated,
would be disclosed 111 due time.
Continuing, Mr. McBiide said :   " It
is quite true, as I no'tice in my  oC  tlie
provincial  papers   have   aheady   reported   that,    I   confei'rcd   with   the

But any suggestion that I ani^or'have

assurance that railway building would
be encouraged without sacrifice of thc

"Ah, Sydney!'- he said, "Anything urgent*? '  Sydney   hesitated. -  "I think [ must have left a memorandum behind in your safe at your  house last night," ho suid, a little  hiibkily, nt last.

Thc man  who opened lho door know lum well  enough,  and  Sydney rnn  in  "Ask Miss Gladys if she will .oj  me for a few minutes before 1 go,"  Iiu said, as he turned inlo the libr-  ni'.v.    "I  -hull  not be long hero."

Sydney asked,  huskily.  "That 1 enn't say, sir. Beforo  breakfast, I  think,  sir." '  Sydney luir.ed away. Tn the libra-  ary befoie him he fumbled for a  minute with Sir William's kejs. What  need to go tlirough tho faico of examining tho safe? Thero wns nothing there ho wanted.  Tho butler met him in lho hall.  "Any message for Miss Gladys,  sir?" ho askod  Sydney shook his head. "So," , ho  suid.  III.  Onco   more  his  hand   vvas   on     tho  wheel  of tho car,  and once more     il  was   thi'-bbmg  under  lum.   At     tho  membrnnco camo back.

FEATS OF PENMANSHIP  KIWG'S BIOGEAPH ON A GRAIN  OF WHEAT.  M. J.  Sofor, a, French Gentleman,.  Displays  Wonderful  Skill  With a Pen.  The feat of writing the Lord's  Player upon a space which a sixpence would cover is so familiar as  to conso to bo wonderful, but ono  cannot resist a tributo of genuine  astonishment to a man who can  write tho wholo of our National Anthem along the thin edgo of an cr-  dinary visiting-cnid, and who has  noluallj penned biographies of King  Edward und .several members of his  family upon a tiny grain of wheat,  f-'ueli a microscopic "calligrnphist"  is M. J. Sofor, a French gentleman,  who, wo should say, could safely  challenge tho wliolo wor <i to rivalry  in his own Hold of penmanship, say's  London Tit-Bits.  Perhaps moro wondorful still aro  tho portraits bf celebrities which M.  i-Jofcr produces out of their bio-  graphics. His presentment of the  Czar, for instance, is not only a  clover likeness, but every stroko in  it is part of a continuous life of the-  llussian Emperor in letters so minuto that to the unaided eyo thoy  seem part of an ordinary pen 'lino  while thc artist is at present en-'  gaged on a similar picture of King  Edward, which will bo made up of  his biography containing 44,000 let-  tors.  There is 'probably never been a.  time when this art of minuto penmanship has not exercised itB fascinations.    In  Cicero's time,  ,     ABOUT 2,000 YEARS AGO,'*  tho whole of Homer's "Iliad:' was-  copied so microscopically that ft  was placed in a nutshell, and a fow  centuries later an artist wrote a.  short poem and enclosed it in'a. hollowed grain of corn, whilo still another penman in theso long-gone  days actually wrote a verse of Homer on a  grain of millet.  Pcdotti, a fourteenth-century  Italian, performed tho most astountl-  ing feats with his pen. Ho wrote-  a poem of over 100 linos on a space  no larger than his littlo finger-nail;  mado an elaborate landscape-sketch,  including ''a shepherd and a drovo of  sheep, which a grain of corn completely covered; -and penned a long  treatise on poetry in- such minuto  letters that tho manuscript had the  appearance of a closo series of perfectly straight lines; ���������w_ilo he dedicated to Urban VI. a history of tho  Papacy,"* which* took the form of an  excellent likeness of tho Popo In _,.  whoso, honor^ it was ,written. Urban,  was incredulous when he was assured by the artist that the portrait  was composed of more than 12,000*  words in tho form of a consocutivc '  history,. and exclaimed, as well he-  might,������������������ "Why, this-is'nothing less**  than a miracle."    *���������.'<-  But Italy had no ' monopoly, of  theso minuto calligraphists. Many,  centuries ago Peter Bales, an Eng'  lish Chancery clerk, wo learn from  the Harlcian Manuscripts, transcribed thc whole of tho Bible in  such small compass that hc was able  to       ,     '      .

"The nut holdeth the book,-" we are-  told; "there are as many leaves in  his littlo book as the great , Bible,  and he hath written as much in oho **  of his little leaves as a great , leaf  of the Bible.'/ And, not to bo outdone by Peter Bales, another Englishman, of the seventeenth century,  ono Henry Mason, copied' the whole  of "Paradiso Lost" and enclosed his  manuscript in a hen's egg.  As we have seen, M. Sofcr is by'no  means thc first pen-artist who, has  mado a portrait tho medium of a  long,, narrative. At tho British  Museum thore is to be seen an excellent likeness 'of Queen Anne, little larger than half a sheet of, note- '  paper, every delicate line of ,which  is made up of words and sentences,  tho entire narrative being sufliciont  to fill a small volume; and at St.  John's College, Oxford, thoro is a  hbael of tho_ martyred King, Charles ' ^  I.,"which, although to all appear- '**���������  nnco n delicate engraving, is "similarly composed.

Never before in the history of Bevelstoke has Christmas trading been so  active as it is this year. In spite of  the chronic complaint that times are  quiet, money is fairly plentiful in Revelstoke, not merely for payment of  necessaries, but for the purchase of  expensive articles for Christmas gifts.  Merchants in all departments of trade  declare that there is no market heie  for cheap goods. Tbe good people of  Bevelstoke have a fair idea of the  value of what they want and are willing to pay it rather than take anything inferior at a lower price. There  is a growing tendency also among the  citizens to patronize the local merchants in preference to the departmental stores of the east.  There is hardly a slore which has  not put to the front attractions specially designed for Yule-tide, and it is  only fair to say that there aie more  novelties this year than ever noticed  before.     An  appeal is made to every  class of purchaser; to the man who is  going to spend his Christmas quietly  at home; to the traveler who will want  to take to his friends a souvenir of oui  city; but above all to the kind-hearted  Santa Claus who will want to visit  every home in the Railroad City,  where little friends eagerly await him.  The following is a brief review of  what may be found at the different  stores in tbe city:  J. O. MACDONALD  has laid in the newest offerings in  gentlemen's furnishings and haberdashery.

EXPLOSION  IN ROSSLAND  One   Man   Killed   and -Much  Damage   Done to Property-  Chief Mines will have to Close  Down Temporarily.    .  Rossland,   Dec.   10.���������At  2 o'clock  this afternoon about a ton of gelignite  pi  in the thawing bouse of  the Centre  Star mine exploded, through some unknown cause, killing John S. Ingram,  formerly chiefbf police-here, and also,  at Calgary and' Winnipeg, and injur  ing several scores of people. Ingram  was in charge of the powder, and his  death removed the only possible source  of information as to the cause of tbe  explosion. His body was recovered  fiom the debris badly mangled. Lock-  hait, assistant diamond drill operator,  who was at work under the Centre  Star offices was badly cut about tbe  head and legs,.but will recover^ Sev  eral members of the office staff and  men in the compressor building wei e  hurt by flying glass or by being  thrown violently against the machinery. Buildings in the immediate  vicinity were twisted out of shape acd-  the windows all broken.  The big War Eagle boarding house  is badly damaged, some of the inmate-  being injured slightly. In thecity the  shock of tbe explosion caused much  consternation and did a large amount  of damage.���������Nearly all-the plate glass  windows on Columbia avenue were  smashed many people receiving cuts  from the fragments. The merchants  had their Christmas goods displayed,  much destruction being wrought  among these. The amount of glass  destroyed is enormous, and heavy importations for repairs will be necessary  The citizens feel thankful, nevertheless, tbat the loss of life and property  was not greater.  The Centre Star, War Eagle and Le  Roi mines will be shut down for a few  days, because of injury to the steam  and air pipes and compressor machinery and the practical wreck of the  buildings containing them. The dam  age cannot be exactly appraised bnt it  is thought it will reach probably  $50,000.  John S. Ingram leaves a widow and  five children.  The injured are:  E. M. Brown, badly cut about head.  Mrs. E. M. Purcell, badly cut.  Mrs. Geo. Cain, cut about face.  Mrs. Leary Donohue, badly cut and  bruised about face and nock.  Wm. Lockhart, nose severed.  Wm. Tomlinson, nose cut.  Many more were slightly injured by  falling glass.  Safest Place to Ride on a Train  After several years' experimenting,  officers of the Pennsylvania railroad  have come to the conclusion that directly behind-- a loco.uotivc is a bad  place for sleepers or .any other cars  which are useel for passengers. For  this reason an order has been issued  that in . all instances a baggage car,  whether the car is needed for baggage  purposes or not, must be the first car  of tbe train.  This rule applies to excursion and  regular trains. In the case of a combination baggage and smoker car, the  buggage end must be first. "The only  possible deviation from this order,"  the order continues, "is on those divisions v. here no pi ovision is made for  running trains at the end of a suburban run. This is the only time when  an excuse will he accepted."  This is the first official acknowledgment from a. raihoad company that  the middle of a train is the safest  place to ride. Several years ago the  Pennsylvania road staited to make up  its trains with sleepers and dineis  next to engines, with the object of  keeping coach passengeis from walking through sleepers when they  boarded trains at small towns. Recent  accidents on this and other roads have  convinced many railroad men that not  only the front end of passenger tiains  but also the rear should be protected  by a baggage car, whether used or  not.

Ever since the daughter ot a queen of  tenderness ilssed her child and, contracting diphtheria, left motherless  feer family of babies, girls have bew  trained against kissing.  But lt ls a natural instinct Breathing only la equally necessary -with  this, the soft expression, the wordlew  sons of love.  To prohibit lt would deprive this existence of one of its few delights. It  would disinherit the unfortunate proletarians, who, possessing little else,  have yet this capital, this power, thia  poy, which ln a moment's contact  makes them the envied of the cold,  I cloved, the unloving Midas.  Lord of Millions! Yet without lova  he ls without that which, tho igh tha  ecstasy be but for an Instant, lifts  mortality to paradise and makes man  telleve In Immortal bliss.  Therefore, as one who at least remembers her joys, I pray that no voica  r be so potent as to annihilate kisslnc-  It is the mother's last tender prayer,  left as a*-seal upon the lips, the cheek,  lhe brow of her child.  It is the prayer ol forgiveness ot Innocent sinners,   the   unspoken   sympathy'with a broken heart, the pleading with the straying, the   encourage*  tnent to the disheartened.  So   distinctive   is It ln   character  "    that its tender breathing on a Btrang-  *".  er's brow will, like a magician's wand  bring back "how dear to his   heart  are the scenes of his childhood," and  many an eye hard with the bitterness  of frozen tears has brimmed over with  the dew of penitence~at the.touch ot  ^    3ioly, piteous lips.  ,' But aa the greatest good in mlsure  fcecomes the weapon of foul evil, rather than prohibit kissing let a means  . tie'suggested whereby-the hungry for  this, the magic touch of youth, may In  a'measure be fitted for Its enjoyment,  and not ln Ignorance do ill to any,  even the least of the little one?.

Ho hnd inherited money, quarried a half-sister  of Commodore Waugh for muno/,  and made money. Year by jear,  from youth to age, adding thousands  to thousands, acres to acres; until  no*.*., at tho age of ninety-live, lie  was the master of incalculable riches.  lie had outlived his wife and tlioir  three children, and his nearest of  kin were Thurston Willcoxeu, the son  of his eldest son; Cloudesley Mtorn-  ington, the son of his eldest daughter, nnd poor Fanny Laurie, the  child of his youngest daughter.  Thurston and Fanny nad each inherited a small property independent  01 their grandfather.  But poor Cloudy had been left an  orphan in tho worst sense of tho  word���������destitute and dependent on  tho "cold charity of the world,*' or  thc colder and bitterer alms of unloving rich relatives.  The oldest end nearest kinsman and !  petition cf Thurston to be permitted  to continue his education by a course  of studies ut a Gorman university,  and afterward by a tour of tho Eastern continent.  Thurston's nb<-c:icc wa.s prolonged  much beyond the orlg.n.tl intention,  a.s has been related; he spent two  years at thc university, two in travel, and neuiJy two in the cily of  Paris.  His grandfather would certainly  never havo consented to this prolonged absence, had it been at his  own cost; but tho expenses wcrcinjt  by advances upon Thurston's own  small patrimony.  And,     in   fact,   when at last     U13  young gentleman returned to his nu-  I live country, it was because his prj-  I perly  was nearly  exhausted,  and  hi-  I remittances  were small,  few  and  fur  j between,  grudgingly sent,  and about  ! to be stopped.   Therefore nearly penniless,   but  Perfectly    free   from      tho  smallest,    debt   or     degradation���������elegant,   accomplished,     fastidious,    yec  truthful,   generous,    gallant  and   as-,  pi ring���������Thurston     left    the     elegant!  natural   guardian      of  the  boys-o     ��������� I'0'"1. f      trusl0������  Mr.   Willcoxcn-had,    of  course,     re- | ^"rl������ s P���������>Pprty.  ceived     them   into  his house to     bo ' ���������"'-s,.-':r,\.act ,wa  -    ���������   I 01  salons  and   exciting scenes of   l3a"iyJTh  for the     comparative    dullness     and  dreariness of his native place and his  grandfather's house.  He had  reached  his  legal majority  just  beforo leaving  Paris,  and    soon  after his arrival at liome lie was ap-  of     poor      Fanny  dant,      sometimes upon the Catholic  chapel,  sometimes   upon   tho Protestant church, now became a very   regular frequenter of the latter place of  worship;   .lie  object  of his     worship  boing not tho Creator,  but tho creature,  whom,  if ho missed  from     hor  accustomed seat,    tho   singing,     and  praying,  ..nd  preaching for him lost  all  of its meaning,  power and  spirituality.   In tho churchyard ho sometimes tried to catcli her eye and bow  to her; but ho was always completely baflled -*n his aspirations nfter    a  nearer   communion.     She was always  attended from thc church and assisted into hei* .'.addlo by Judge Provost,  Colonel    Thornton,    or somo     ot!:<._  "potent,     grave  and    reverend  seig-  nors,"    who  "hedged hcr about witli  a divinity"  that  it   was  impossible,  without  rudeness  and  intrusion,     to  break      through.     The more ho was  ballled and perllexod,  thu more eager  been 1110  his  ilesiro    lo  cultivate     her  acquaintance.   Had  his  course     been  clear    to  woo    her  for  liis  wife,     it  would  have beon   easy  to  nsk     permission of F.lith to visit her at her  liouse;  but such  wits  not  tho     case,  and Thurston,    tampering   with     his  own     integrity    of     11urpo.se,   rather  wished that this much    coveted    acquaintance should  bo incidental,  and  their  interviews  scorn  accidental,    so  tliat ho s-hould not commit    himself,  or in any way lead her to form   expectations    which   he had no   surely  of  being     ablo   to  meet.   How  long  this      cool  and    cautious      foresight  might avail    him,  if    once ho     woro  brought in close companionship with  Marian, remains to be seen.   It hap.  pencd one Sunday afternoon in October that he saw    Marian take   leave  of      her     voncrablo    escort,   Colonel  as to vist Fanny in  reared and educated; but no educa-i Ulor.(li^'l,,t ''syl,Jin( ".

This  was just knowledge enough, he said,  to teach the boys how to make and  save money, yet not enough to  tempt them to spend it foolishly in  travel, libraries, pictures, statues,  arbors, fountains, and such costly  trumpery and expensive tomfoolery.  To Thurston, who was his favorite,  probably because he bore 'the family  name and inherited some indendent  property, Mr. Willcoxcn would, however, have afforded a moro liberal  - and gentlemanly education, could lie  have done so and at the same timy  decently withheld from going to some  expense in giving his penniless grandson. Cloudy, tho same privilege. As  it was, he sought to veil" his parsimony by conservative principle.  It was a great humiliation to the  boys to see that, while all tho youths  of their own rank and neighborhood  were entered pensioners at the local  college, lhoy two alone wero taken  from the littlo day-school to be put  to agricultural labor���������a thing unprecedented in that locality at that  time.  When this matter was brought to  the know ledge of Commodore Waugh,  as hc strode up and down his hall,  the indignant old sailor thumped hi_  heavy stick upon the ground, thrust  forward nis great head, and swore  furiously by- the whole Pandemonial  Hierarchy that his grandnephows  should not be brought up like clodhoppers.  And straightway he ordered his carriage, threw himself into it, and rode  ovor to Charlotte Hall, where he entered the namo cf his two young relatives as pensioners at his own proper cost.  This done, lie ordered his coachman  to take the road to Dell-Delight,  where he had an interview with Mr.  AVillcoxen.  And as he met little opposition  from   lho  old  man,   who-seemed  might find at once that freedom,  space and solitude so desired by the  hearl-sick or brain-sick, and where  also his own care might avail    her.  Old Mr. V'illcoxen, far from offering opposition to this plan, actually  favored it���������though from tho less  worthy mo.ivo of economy. Wh.t  was tho use of spelling money to  pay board, und nursing, and medical  attendance, in the asylum, when sho  might bo boarded and nursed and  doctored so mucli cheaper at home?  For tho old man confidently looked  forward to .he time when the poor,'  fragile, failing creaturo would sink  inlo the grave, and Thurston won1.1  becoma her heir. And hc calculated  that every dollar they could save of  her income ,would be so much addsd  to tho inheritance when Thurston  should come into it.  Very soon afler Thurston's return  homo his grandfather gave him to  understand the conditions upon which  he intended io make him his heir.  Thcy wero two in number, viz., that  Thurston should never leave him  again whilo he lived; and, secondly,  that ho should never marry without  his consent. "For I don't wish to  bo left alone in my old age, my dear  boy; nor do I wish to see you throw  yourself away upon' any girl whose  fortuno is lo_s than thc estate I intend to bequeath entire to yourself."

He immediately threw himself  into his saddle and followed her,  with tho assumed air of an in different  gentleman pursuing his own path.  Ho overtook her near one of thoso  gates that frequently intersect tho  road. Bowing, ho passed her, opened  tho gate, and held it open for her  Passago. Marian smiled, and nodded  with a pleasant:  "Cood-aftornoon, Mr. Willcoxcn,"  as  sho  went  through.  Thurston closed tho gate and rode  on after her.  "This is glorious weather, Miss  May field." -  "Glorious, indeed!" replied Mar-j  ian.  "And tho country, too, is perfectly  beautiful i.t this season. 1 never  could sjmpathiye with the poets who  call autumnal day's 'the melancholy  days���������thc saddest of the year,' "  "Sor I," said Marian; "for to mo,  autumn, with its refulgent skies, an'd  gorgeous woods, and rich harvest,  and its prospect of Christmas cheer  and wintry repose has ever seemed a,  gay and festivo season. The year's  great work is done, thc harvest- i_  gathered, enjoyment is present, and  repose at hand."  "In tho .world of society," said  Thurston, "it is in the evening, after  the labor r.r tho business 01" tlie day  is over, that the gayest scenes of  festivity occur, just preceding 'the re-  poso ...of sleep. So I rcceivo yo ir  thought of the autumn���������thc evening"  of the year, preceding thc rest "01  winter.

"Being a woman, you havo 'dono  wonders!"  "For a woman," snid Marian, with  a glanco full of archness and merriment.  "No, no; for any*..ono, man or woman! But your method, Marian?

"Nay. now," snid tho frank girl;  "do etill 1110 Mnrian if that name  springs -iioro readily from your lips  than the other. Almost nil persons  cull mo Marian,  and I liko it."  A rush of pleasure thrilled al!  tlirough his veins; he gavo hcr words  a moaning and a value for himself  that they did not certainly possess;  ho forgot that the grace extended to  him was extended to nil���������nay, that  sho had oven said as much in the  very words that gave it. no answered:  "And if I do, fairest Mnrian, shall  I. too, hoar my own Christian name  in music from your' lips?"

In a plain of tho Hnrz Mountains,  a few miles distant from the quaint  old town of Ilalborsladt, Germany,  lies the village of Slrobeck. 'The  history of Slrobeck and its people  has for hundreds of years been associated with tho game of chess. It_  is a veritable chess village,-a nur-*  scry garden for that ancient game.  From earliest childhood the boys  and girls aro mado familiar with  board and men. At school chess' is  treated as nn obligatory sulVjocl, and  is taught systematically. As soon  as pupils have mastered the moves  and the rules of-the .game, thcy are  encouraged ��������� to undertake tho solution of chess problems and to invent  now ones, just as an English schoolboy is set to  making Latin verse.  At Easier there are chess examinations ond tournaments among the  school children. Tluec awards of  lienor in the shape of chess-boards  bearing tho inscription, "The lie-  ward of Industry," 'are given by the  .village community. 1'. Theso tournaments nro attended', by lovers of  chess from far nnd_near. During the  last half-century-several chess congresses of wide interest have also  been held at Strobcck.  From a very early-"time tho Slro-  becleers hnve had the-privilege of  challenging to a game .of chess any  princo or nobleman" or-cxalte-d personage who happens to pass through  their village.. In tho, year 16ol the  "Great Elector" of Brandonblurg was  challenged in this,way, and in memory of the event presented to tho  villagers a carved board and a set  of silver chessmen,  still  preserved.  How chess became the ruling passion of Strobcck  has never been as-  through all his nature with electric, fcortained, but the legend most gen-  life-giving, spirit-realixing power, erally believed sots forth that in the  elevating and inspiring his whole bc-|elevenlh    centurv a  famous political  It was not fortunate for old Mr.  Wiltcoxon's plans that his granson  should havo met Marian Mayfield.  For, on tho morning of Thurston's  "first meeting with the charming girl,  when ho turned his horse's head from  the arched gateway of Old Field Cottago and galloped off, "a haunting  shape and image gay" attended him.

(let lho sheep in good condition  boforo  winter  sols  in.   '  If you value the wool product, nn  even condition must bo kept up.  A poor sheep will cat as much and  require as much labor in securing  its fleece as a good. ono.  Horsemen   who   divide   their   stock  up into    small    flocks are recognized  as the most successful shepherds and  tho  have tho healthiest and bost developed  sheep.  It is a mistako to ignore the mutton sido of flock returns when tho  outcome of the br-lncss is being  estimated.  Tho shepherd who hits a lot of  good fat sheep each winter, will  find hi.s feeding pays quite as woll  as the average.  Only the very best sheep, animals  which are true to their specific varieties of breeds and full, of promise,  should bo selected for brooding purpose.  In a majority of cases size is only  a secondary consideration, provided,  only that thc animal is fat, smooth  and trim.  Not only does it cost less to make  a pound of young tlcsh, but the  former is worth moro in market.  The man who makes his sheep as  good as he ..can beforo sending to  market, need' have no fear of his  placo  in  mnrkot.  A thrifty * animal, * full of robust  health'and vigorous strength, is,  more capable of resisting tho poison'  of --Contagious ' diseases successfully  than* tho unthrifty animal.  . If thore aro any sick or - unthrifty  sheep .in tho flock, ^separate thom  and if possible,' market theni in  some way.' It will not pay to winter them.  In buying sheep to feed this ��������� winter, buy good ones. Thc valuo , of  tho feed is the samo whether fed to-  good sheep or poor ones; the difference in tho profits will bo vvith tho  former.  With "the sheep selected for breeding, tho natural growth and character of tho wool of the animals to  be" mated should-be a matter-of first  class importance. '       '  Tho best interests of sheep 'husbandry does not so much call for  extraordinary weights as they do  for the production of muttons of  moderate weight and choice quality.  ��������� Valuable as blood is in breeding,  it has a very nocessary adjunct and  that is, individual merit. Pedigreo  is of little valuo in itsolf unless  backed by individual merit.  Howevor well grounded the position of the wool grower may be at  any time, he is short-sighted if ho  neglects to look after tho mutton  sido of his business. But at thc  samo time, he should neglect tho  quality of wool and the interests of  wool  production.  Sheep 'increases so rapidly and  mature at' such an early ago and  their flesh i.s so wholesomo for food  lhat on the majority of farms a  flnclc can readily be made profitable.  It-... claimed that ono sheep for  each cow can bo kept with very'  littlo  if  any  additional  expense     as  tho flock should bo fed and manag-ed  wilh a view to wool growih and  that  cf  fino  quality.  Whilo thero i.s a groat advnnlago  in securing good blooded stock, the  profits of tho herd or flock depend  equally ns much upon tho caro as on  the  blood.  No sheep sliould bo allowed to dio  from old ngo, but nil s. ould bo fattened and sent to the butcher before their vitality has impaired to  such nn extent as to impair thoir  rationing qualities or depreciate  their value.  While (hero is a-i abuudanco of  good pasturage is ono of tho best  times to fatten sheep that havo  passed  thoir prime.  INFLUENCE IN MILKING.  Any unusual    mplhort    of milking  not only causes a diminished,   yield  from milk,  but also causes the milk  which  is     obtained  to  bo  of  poorer  quality,  as    shown  by thc per cent,  of  fat.       Tho  variations   in   quality  are usunlly much greater than  those  in  the-yield.    Experiments  in   which  0110  ' teat     at   a    timo   was   milked  caused a falling off from ono to two  por cent, of fat in-thc milk ctylained.  Slow  milking gave,  on  the .average,  0.4 per cent., less  than fast milking,  and  wilh  somo cows morc  limn  ono  por cent.    The difference in     yield of  fat from nine cows experimented upon was moro than onc pound of buttor por day.       A   change of milkers  also had n marked effect, but in this  case  the individuality  of  the  milker  scorned   'to     bo  thc    chief  factor,   ns  certaiii   milkers  always  obtained belter milk than  others,  and  this* was  the case whon  both  tho milkers wero  thought     to  bo     expert.
