"Nature, while she specially built
the human form to stand erect, has
specially decreed that men and women
should occasionally rest themselves by
assuming a sedentary position. Al
most every medical authority on the
deformities of the human body has
drawn attention to the fact that stand
ing too long operates in a vicious direc
tion, which, by elongating certain
muscles, weakens them; that from the
necessity of changing position, in ord
er to rest the muscles, it occurs that
when people are standing they alter
nateljibrtlance themselves first on one
leg and then on the other, but more
frequently on the left; and that a girl
with a weak spine, after standing up
right for some time, generally does not
keep her feet in line, but places one
above the other. Curvature of the
spine, albeit temporary, is the result.
The habit of standing on one leg,
almost unavoidable in standing too
long, induces the shoulders to lose their
horizontal level. The one opposite to
the projecting hip becomes higher than
the other, and the spine becomes de
formed laterally at this part."
It is an unwritten law, well under
stood in journalism, that no editor is
under the slightest obligation to give
his reason for his acceptance or non
acceptance of a manuscript. He is not
called upon to write a private critique
on the article to the author of it. His
acceptance or rejection is an absolute
and unquestionable fact. Among
amateur writers this doe3 not appear
to be understood. All sub editors and
reporters understand that it is an un
justifiable impertinence to ask the man
aging editor his reason for publishing
or not publishing any matter submitted
to hi? judgment. Outside writers and
aspiring amateurs rarely seem to com
prehend this truth, and their transgres
sions are largely from ignorance rather
than intention. The nature of editor
ial work requires absolute power of
decision, in order to preserve the uni
ties of the journal the editor conducts
Boston Trarler. . ,
We may mention a few things which
a man should never do with a hcrse:
Never start him out of a walk into a
trot when rising a hill; always let him
walk till over the summit. Never al
low him to drink immediately after be
ing fed; give givo him water before he
has a grain, working him again an hour
after he has eaten his feed. Never al
low him to drink a pailful of water
at a time. The capacity of his stom
ach is sixteen quarts; four quarts of
water is enough to have in it at any
time. Never allow him to drink cold
water when he's hot, nor give him a
grain when hungry. Hay is tho best
to feed for a hungry horse. When
coming home from a journoy give him
water when two or three miles from
the house; this will be warm in his
stomach before he reaches the stable,
and he will be ready for his hay when
he arrives home.
Lewistom During the first of the

ville had been engaged in locating and
surveying the new town of Lewiston.
This place is located on the line of the

grounds for woodsheds, etc., and prom

thereon. Mr. Lewis tho proprietor
will use all endeavors to make it a
flourishing village. Ihere ore one

improvements in progress. A petition

From a recent grain circular, 'we
make the following extract: The aver
age production of wheat in the United
States during the past ten years has
been 352,604,844 bushels. Thelargest
yield of any one year was thatof 1880,
being 468,546,723 bushels. The pro
duction for 1882 is estimated at 525,
000,000 bushels, which ijives us an
excess of 26,450,277 bushels more
than any ono year in theUnited States.
This excess of wheat is offset to some
extent by the shortage in the corn crop
which is estimated at one-third less
than it was in 1880.
A magnetic rod has enabled Captain

Wo would suggest that a person be
ginning to raiseshecp might find a flock
which he might pasture through tho
summer at so much per head, and thus
gain some Information in handling
them. A flock of 200 sheep, well
bought, the latter part of June, to bo
pastured through the remainder of the
season, with a view of feeding for sale
at the most favorable period, should
be judiciously fed from the start. If
the pasture is good the sheep will do
well on that alone, but a little extra
feed will be liberally repaid in fatten "
ning. As fattenning is the object
sought, let it be done in the most eco
nomical way. A little grain on pas
ture will pay much better than the
same amount of grain in winter. As
we have often advised, economy re
quires that animals intended for meat
should be pushed in tho warm season.
A quarter of a pound of corn and oats,
or corn and wheat bran, or corn and
linseed meal, mixed, for each sheep, will
produce a greater result during the
warm weather than twice the amount
of feed in winter with good hay. Tho
time to give a start to fatenint; theep
is in summer. If these sheep become
tat in tbe fall so much the better are
they for feeding in the winter. Such
sheep will stand tho cold, and gain on
a much smaller ration than if they
were thin in the fall. The best Wes
tern feeders of cattle wisely give com
on pasture. Sheep feeding should bo
done in the same way, except that it is
better to give some more nitrogenous
feed with corn. The rule should be to
push the nheep in warm weather, and
then feeding in winter will bo compara
tively easy. "Ex."

Dear Eve: I have been on tho ram
page now one month, prospecting for
our now home, and have seen soma
ranches that will do pretty well, but
none of them just the ticket. The old
garden is a hard place to beat, but wo
have lost that, and turned out now to
root, hog, or die. We will fight it out
now, on this line, if it takes all summer.

he put it in a tin box and the tin box in

but if he did the old hen would resent the
disturbance and provo a good detect

looked for his monoy it was gono.
The old hen was cross, but had not
