enced by many nations. The whole
Eastern world was once well wooded.
Roman and Greek writers assure us of
this. Vast regions of Europe and
Asia, by wars and wantonness and
Imprudence, have been stripped of
tuelr forests. A belt of woodland
stretching front the Pyrenees to the
Himalayas has been swept away, and
that whole region, once fertile and pop
ulous, now oarely sustains a people
scanty in numbers. It is a significant
fact that great deserts now occupy the
original seat of the human race, and
extend on every route of their migra
tions. Humboldt is reported as saying
“Men in all climates seem to bring up
on future generations two calamities at
once—a want of fuel and a scarcity of
water.” The two come alike from the
destruction of the forests.
How to Tell a Sheep** Aen.
The Breeders’ Gazette, in reply to a
correspondent, says that a sheep's age
cannot be determined with precision
from the appearance of the animal’s
teeth. Periods of dentition vary a few
months. In general, the lamb has bis
eight small teeth for from 12 to Hi
months. At the end of this time he cuts
two large teeth, as at Fig. 1, when he is
said to have “a yearling mouth.” At
something less than 2 years (general
ly) there are four large permanent in
cisors. as at Fig. 2. At about 30 months
there are six permanent incisors, as at
Fig. 3. and the other two come at about
36 to 42 months, as at Fig. 4. when the
sheep is said to “have a full mouth.”
