Our English cousins have a kind of nomen
clature in their sheep business which very
easily puzzl-s the casual reader. A brief ex
planntion of some of their terms may not be
out of place. When an Englishman Bpcaks of
a "hoggot" ho means a wether in his second
yearj a "ewe hogcy" is a young ewe that has
never been shorn; a "gimmer" is a ewe once
sheared; a "two-shear-ewe" is one in her
second shearing year; a "three-shear-ewe" is
one in her third shearing year, etc ; keeping
a "running" ewe stock means the practice of
buying ewe lambs to keep up tho flock and
selling with all the produce; a "flying" owo
stock is one kept where tho ewes are bought
annually and sold after they have brought a
lamb. Pe. pie who "talk United States" are
strangers to nearly all of these terms.
Concerning Shorthorns as milkers an Eng
lish contemporary Bays : A number ol gentle
men interest-d in agriculture visited the farms
of the Shor'horn Dairy Company near Brent
wood. The party were under tho guidance of
the Earl of Dunmore (chairman of the win.
pany) and Mr. Collinson Hall (managing
director), and were shown the workings of the
system under which the cattle (which are all
Shorthorns) are all stall fed on the produce of
the farms mixed with a proportion of foreign
food, for the most part half-malted. The cat
tle are housed in concrete built shfds, with
mangers, always kept clean, above which
flows a constant stream of pure water, so that
the animals can drink whenever they wish
from a clear stream. When the company
acquired'the business they took 470 head of
cattle. Tho stock has increased in less than
eighteen months to 1,120 head of cattle. The
company is now farming 2,200 acres of land,
and has besides the cattle 500 Southdown
sheep and 401 pig. They send to London
160,000 quarts of milk weekly.
In selecting the pig best suited for convert
ing food Into pork there are several matters
to be observed, and these should be para
mount at the outset, as no after care can com
pensate for errors of selection. Fineness of
bone insures having but little offal, and a pig
with fine bone seldom disappoints its owner
when ho is slaughtered, A broad, dished face,
with snout short and turned up, indicates an
aptitude to fatten, and is one of the surest in
dications of a good pit;. No hog should have
bristles, as these have been bred away from
all of the finest breeds, and they will not be
tolerated at present on, any respectable farm,
for they indicate coarseness, restlessness and
preponderance of offal. Besides these outward
Indications, which include squareness of form,
fineness of hair and length and depth ot car
.b i nronensities of the pic should be Ob
served. He should not be a squealer, nor
.i..,n l.n Via restless. He should not eat
quickly, and after his hunger 1b appeased
should patiently He down, without even trav-
' eling around his pen. As a rule, tne disposi
tion of the pig and his propensities correspond
to his form, and but few errors will be made
if the selection of the pig is made as directed.
No corn seould be fed till just previous to
hardening the fat, and all heating or fat pro
ducing food should be avoided as much as
possible during the summer. A pig when in
the pen will do well enough on vegetables,
refuse, etc., if given a little bran or bran slop
daily, as corn does its duty later in the
Bheep Without Water.
A correspondent of an exchange alleges that
if sheep are not furnished with a sufficient
water supply the fleece will Bhowit, as it will
when thev are not fed sufficiently or irregu
larly. The statement has excited considers
ble comment nd some positive denials. A
correspondent ot the Bandera Bugle, for in
stance, says: "Although I do not doubt
'Old Shepherd's' sincerity, wool growers
should not receive his bomb too credulously.
A year aeo last winter I knew a flock of 3,700
lambs, herded and bedded out without water
for four months. There was a flock of 3,200
wethers on the same ranch, treated the same
way. They sheared splendid fleeces, the large
flock averagin? over seven pounds per head,
This last winter I knew of a flock that was
without water for a like number of months,
and they sheared heavily. And l"nave never
heard that the price of this wool was curtailed
or damaged in any way. However, it maybe
that Old Shepherd is true in what he fays, and
that the buyers of this wool knew not what
they were doing. And again, it may be that
doing without water in some climates injures
the wool more than in other climates.
Further, it is a well-known fact that sheep,
or home stock will often get and keep fatter
ou softsucculent, and of course watery food,
without water than with water on the same
food, and who shall say that a sheep eating
luxuriant grass, with the dews ot neaven upon
tt, does not, in the winter at least, partake of
water enough for all healthful purposes?"
Well, if the animal gets all the water it
needs in the way indicated, it makes no dif
ference how it gets it. But we are free to say
that sheep cannot get all the water they need
in that way. They may get aloob, but not as
well as they would if they had plenty of
water. A. to the effect of a lack of water
upon the fleece, we had never thought of the
matter until our attention was canea to u uy
the assertion made by the correspondent re
ferred to. It looks, however, entirely reason,
able. If the system is deprived of anything
that it needs, the fleece must feel it.
gUUlac Milch Oowm.
If the stable is not to close as to make the
cows uncomfortable, and is well ventilsted
and kept clean, and as good food given as that
obtained by grazing, the same cows will giva
more milk in a season if kept up, than they
would if running at large, unlets the grazing
is done under unusually favorable conditionr.
Lbfik iv." ffiSfc.. ,-r-S,-
Cows in milk require but little exercise to
maintiin good health. What they get beyond
this requirement when grazing, which is gen
erally considerable, tends to diminish their
milk. Exposure to -hot sunshine, to storm,
and to annoyance by flies, tends to depreciate
both quantity and quality, and to give a bal-
anco in favor of stabling. The more traveling
cows do, the more cheesy matter do they de
velop in their milk, while to support tile
increased respiration occasioned by the in
creased exercise, more fat is burned up and
less appears in the milk. The quieter they
remain, the richer their milk in butter. Upon
the varying conditions which may accompany
the two modes cf feeding, will depend the
preference in richness and quantity of milk.
It is believed to be generally on the side of
housing when airly attended to. Live-Stock
Corn Fodder as Cattle Food.
Because an animal will cat of stalks or straw
until it appears to be full, because no better
food is given it, is no evidence that this full
ness will protect it from the cold and putflesh
upon the ribs. Nutriment, when it finally
enters the blood, is in a very concentrated
form, and within reasonable limits, the nearer
we can give tho food to the beast in the form
that will be most easily and promptly trans
formed to living tissues, taxing the digestive
powers moderately, tho more efficient and
satisfying the feeding becomes. Still, corn
fodder as an adjunct to concentrated food can
be made of value. It is the go-easy habit that
too many fall into of making themselves he
lieve that the straw stack is a pretty good
place for cattle to winter beside, and that the
stalk field gives sufficient sustenance, even
after the nubbins and the grass in the fence
corners are consumed, that should be op

driving the tunnel on the lode located at the

different cross veins of rich ore. The ore for
present working is obtained by storing in the
veins pased through. The water is unusually
low for the time of year. This retards work-
to some extent, and Yakima needs manufac

be added, to set in more active motion the

Palouse Qattlte This year has ten one of
unusual dryness and heat, and a few remarks
on the appearance of crops at this time may
interest our readers abroad. Last week we
rode into the country, and found harvesting
pretty well along. Grain hay had yieded
from one and a forth to one ahd a half tons
per acre on ground that had not received its
second plowing. Corn looked green and
thrifty. Fruit trees planted in April were,
as a general thing, doing finely, though none
had been irrigated. Some of them, however,
bewail to show the effects of the continued
dryness. Potatoes were of fair size, though
generally not so largo as is cemtnon in other
years. On the whole wo saw nothing to dis
courage farmers. Our soil can evidently stand
a grcaler lack ot rain than that of any other
couutry, as it gathers a greater amount of
moisture during the nights and is therefore
better prepared for the warm days interven

direction one may travel from Pendleton, ho
