of the details called ui question."
Two thousand years ago Home
was the world, ami tlie city of Home
as the world'slKfnfre. From the
imperial city wentout the decree,
that "all the World should be
taxed," and all the world made
haste to comply with the order,
having learned by a variety of
experience all depressing, that
remonstrance would be useless and
resistance fatal. The great city
possessed every apparaut element
of; stability. She had the wealth
peculiar to great cities iu general ;
tilie was the seat of the supreme
g'vernment, the centre and source
of J the national power, and the
great intellects of the empire
congregated within her walls. Her
citizens were free to devote almost
teir entire attention to problems
ofj government, for besides having
injney in abundance they hgd
teen supplied, by various suocess
fn1 wars, with an army of slaveB
It whom all manual labor and
tiwch intellectual drudgery was
dine. Everything that the intelli
fijnce and art of the age had
accomplished was at the service of
Jioinans of wealth and position;
tie stage, the forum, the
sculptor's chisel, contributed to the
delectation of ear and eye. Even
the poorer classes were better off
than the rich of other cities, foi
aspiring citizens competed for the
privilege of supplying baths, games
and sjieetacles for the masses.
All roads led to Home, ami over
them came every luxury that the
empire afforded; over them came,
too, from all provinces, countless
men and women, whose birthplaces
wore unable to confine their
restless minds and satisfy the

A HANDY HERDER.
T , . . '.

a aJut as large in the body as one
or our common uarnyaru iowi, uui
as it lias longer legs ami a longer
neck, it seems much larger. Its
general color is black, but the
plumage on its breast is beautiful
beyond description, being what
might be called iridescent, chang
ing, as it continually does, from a
steel blue to a red gold, aud glit
tering with a metallic luster.
In the wild state the ngami is
not peculiar for anything but its
beauty, its extraordinary cry, which
has given it the name of trumpeter,
and for an odd lmbit of leaping
with comical antics into the air,
apparently for its own amusement.
When tamed, however and it
soon learns to abandon its wild
ways it usually conceives a vio
lent attachment for its master, and
though very jealous of his affec
tion endeavors to please him by a
solitude for the well being of all
that belongs to him, which may
fairly be termed benevolence.
It is never shut up at night as
the other fowl are; but, with a
well deserved liberty, is permitted
to take up its quarters where it
pleases. In the morning it drives
the ducks to the water and the
chickens to the feeding ground,
and if any should presume to wan
der they are quickly brought to a
sense of duty by a sharp reminder
from the strong beak of the vigi

Sometimes it is given tlie care
of a liock of sheep; and, though it
nay seem too puny for such a task,
it is in ract quite equal to it. The
misguided sheep that tries to trifle
with the againi soon has cause to
repent the experiment; for, with a
swiftness unrivaled by any dog,
tlie leathered shepherd darts aLter
ilia runavuy, and witli wings and
beak drives it back to it place,
not forgetting to impress upon the
oiteuder a sense of its error by
pecks with its beak.
Should a dog think to take ad
vantage of the seemingly unguard
ed condition of the sheep, and ap
proach them with evil design, the
againi makes no hesitation about
rushing at him an 1 giving combat

At meal time it walks into ihe
louse and takes its position near
its master, seeming to ask for his
caresses. It will not permit the
presence of,any other pet in the
room, and even resents the intru
sion of any servants not belonging
there, driving out all others before
it will be contented. Like a well
bred dig, it does not clamor for
food, but waits with dignity until
its wants have been satisfied.

peace. She surrendered with her
battery at Macon, walked home

At a public meeting in Edin
burgh, some time ago, Processor
Blackie told his audience the fol
lowing story: "A little boy at a
Presbytery examination was asked:
'What is the meaning of regenera
tion?' 'Oh, to be lxrn again,' he
replied. 'Quite right, Tommy.
You'rr a very good boy. Would
you not like to le born again?'
Tommy hesitated, but on being
pressed for an answer, said : 'No.'
'Why, Tommy?" 'For fear I might
be born l?ssie" h replied,"
What changes in our wool in
dustry can be admitted with a pros-
pect of success I is becoming a
question "which will soon force
itself to the notice of highland
sheep breeders. There are many
shepherds in Eastern Oregon who
have proved that they can grow
nine pounds of sound wool upon
ewes and ten to twelve pounds up
on wethers. Such facts show
that there is a class of continuous
feed sustained by the climate and
soil of this region capable of
growing a good-sized sheep, such
as can produce a long, strong-fibred
wool suitable for warp wols or for
combing purposes which will
command a better price in tho
market than the shorter wool, even
of as high blood. We have in
some previous articles referred to
a call that seems to be increasing
for longer wools which are suited
for combing for the manufacturer
of worsted goods of all kinds.
Although the uses into which these
goods are brought admits of a
much coarser fiber if it only has
length and strength, yet its value
is equally favorably qualified by
its fineness and elasticity. Nearly
all portions of the country which
are devoted to sheep husbandry
seem to vie with each other in
high grade of merino blood, with
out taking into consideration that
there are crosses or lines of this
blood which if bred with care
and upon lands which will sustain
a full year's feed, which will assure
a constant progress in the economy
of the sheep, would produce a wool
which would bring a much better
price in the market, and if a good
market can be secured for the
mutton sheep, a much larger profit
can be realized from the industry.

As the discovery ot nickel on
this coast has opened a new field
of mining industry, and one which
has every indication of becoming
equal to the Comstock in richness,
the Sacramento Record concluded
to gather the facts. In this dis
cover', as in hundreds of other
great finds, these mines have been
lying for years within plain sight
of a stage road where people con
stantly travel, without even notice.
Many samples of the ore have been
sent to dift'erenf assayers 'Jftir.x.oP-
perrmrMm took the trouble
to analyze the rock until it was
sent tohis city. In 1851 samples
of this ore were 6ent tovCharles
Bell for copper assay. Upon ex
amination it was found to contain
a large per cent, of nickel. More
of the ore being secured, it was an
alyzed, proving the first result
Upon this showing William S.
Bell was sent to discover the loca
tions, and succeeded in finding the
richest and . most valuable nickel
property ever discovered. The dis
covery being kept as secret as pos
sible, little was Known as to its ex
tent until recently. The property
has been well prospected and the
largest bodies of this mineral ex
posed that have ever been known.
The nickel ores of Pennsylvania
average but two per cent. They
are reduced on the ground to fif
teen per cent and Bent to CamtJpn,
N. J., where they are again re
duced and the metal extracted.
The nickel found in Oregon has
also been opened, but to what ex
tent cannot l ascertained. Thirty
tons of the Nevada nickel were
sent to London, which graded
twenty-nine and ono-fodrth per
cent. These mines are the only
ones yet discovered that carry uni
formly the three distinct charac
ters, viz: Arseniuret, which is a
grayish metallic red; arseniate, a
beautiful apple green, and arsenite,
having a dark metallic lustre.
"Don't you think she's pretty?"
said Jhe fond mother to the father,
asasho stroked the baby's silken
hair. He was in a sulking mood,
something had disagreed with him
and he replied somewhat curtly:
"Oh, all babies are about alike.
They all look like little monkies."
Just then a neigldior entered and
taking up the baby on her lap, said:
"Mercy on us, how like its father
that child is!"
"Are you aware that breakfast
is ready and waiting for you?" she
demanded, as she nearly 6hook his
nightcap off. "Yes," he eleepily
replied, "I am just waking up to
