The Farmer's Flock Can Be Maintained
With Grr.ali ,Expense.
In an address before Ontario ,farm
ers in t<> sue.oess with sheeji <•’
the farm. IMvfrw-sotv llay said in -part
I do not think it would be wise f>>
every man to keep, sheep, for the re
srin that in order to be successful AAiU-
any class of animals a man must have
.love for them, and if a man does no:
like sheep he would ' ilot l>e: likely to
make a success of them. There are
several things about the sheep, how
ever, which make them especially \ye!l
adapted to occupy a place on almost:
Sheep will eat a great many kind?
of weeds, which other animals will not
touch. This makes them especiali.-
valuable about a farm-'as a sort o
They will live bn very poor pasture
where many other animals would
•starve. Their activity enables them to
travel long distances in search of their
food. ajKl the formation of their mouth,
is such that they can .bite very eioseh
to the ground, * enabling them to gather
a living from the poorest soils.
r*. , Cheap Shelter.
Sheep require very inexpensive build-
ings. Almost any sfcrt of building will
answer the purpose so dong as it pro-
tects them from storms in the rough-
est weather and is reasonably dry and
free from drafts. There is no other
farm animal for which cheaper build-
ings are required.
There is comparatively little labor
involved in taking care of a flock of
sheep. I do not know of any animal
that requires less labor in its feeding
and mniAigement. ■ r
Grind Their Own Grain.
They grind their own grain, Avhioh
is another factor which adds to the
cheapness of their maintenance. They
are the best grain grinders which tve
haA*e, arid the weed seeds consumed by
sheep are never known to grow after-
ward. /This is not true of other farm

An Improved Product Containing Many
^Strong Points. <
Farmers who have grown the Green
Mountain potato will be interested iu
the picture reproduced herewith. These
potatoes were grown by a practical
farmer of Licking county, O. The
product shown Jn this basket is the
result of many years’ careful selection.
They represent a ’highly improved
strain of Green Mountain potatoes,
containing all the strong qualities of
GKKKN MOUNTAIN TUBERS.
the original, with all the weaker points
bred out. The following from Ameri
can Agriculturist gives further details
of this splendid potato:
One of the potatoes exhibited at ^the
Ohio state fair last fall which attract
ed our attention J.was an improved
strain of Green Mbuntain. Speaking of
this variety, the producer says: Sev-
eral years ago we procured a small
amount of seed from a well known
farm of the original Green Mountain
potato. I noted the very desirable and
strong features this potato possessed.
On the other hand,, among the undesir-
able qualities was lack of uniformity
and smoothness in the tubers. The
eyes were too deep and the yield usual-
ly not in keeping with the vigor and
spread of the vine.
By careful selection of certain hills
and tujierg showing the least fault in
these respects I eventually* secured a
potato that practically eliminated ail
the faults. By growing these several
years under most favorable cultural
.conditions on a’light loam 6oil abun-
dantly supplied with humus and chem-
icals I finally secured what I consider
a strain of Green Mountain that is far
superior to the original. I planted only
perfect specimens and as a result have
secured a«potato possessing all the
strong points of tfie original and lack-
ing the undesirable ones.
The potato is cream white, with a
slightly netted skip, rather oblong and
somewhat flattened as well as uniform
in size. ’ It sets moderately weil,5and a
large per cent of the tubers of the po-
tatoes develop to marketable size.
Only 4 per cent of the total yield has
been considered culls on my farm dur-
ing tbe past s'lx years. Tubers are
rarely if ever hollow and dre superb
for table use. It is a yielder of excep-
tional merit, and it is popular wher
ever it has .been grown.
Plants Resistant to Disease.
It has long been known that.plants
vary widely iu their power of resist
eancri to disease. Not only do certain
kinds of plants seem to be almost lrii-
mune to diseases of every kind, but
some varieties qf the same plant ye
but little affected Vy disease, while oth-
ers are badly injured by disease. Va-
riations In this respect also extend to

Pepper In Olden Times.
During the middle ages in Euroi i
pepper was the most esteemed and i:n
portant of all the spices. Genoa, Veil
ice and other eorrfmercial cities of cen;
tral Europe were indebted to their
traffic in pepper for a large part of
their wealth. Its importance as a
means of promoting commercial ifctiV
ity aikl civilization during the middle
ages can hardly be overrated. Tribute
was lM’ied in pepper, and donations
were #iade in this spice, which, wa-
frequentJy lalso used as a1 medium of*
exchange in place of money. When
the imperial city of Rome was be-
sieged by Alaric, the king of the*Goths,
in 408 4. Di. the ransom demanded in
eluded 5.000 pounds of gold, 30,000
pounds of silver and 3,000 pounds of
pepped, illustrating the importance of
this spice at that time. • .

SIDE TALKS by BURK’S
I wonder whether the marriage of
Gladys Vanderbilt to the Austrian
Count with six names, or the trial
of Harry Thaw, is the principal sub-
ject of talk around New York City
to-day. There is always something
sensational going on up there. Wheta
I was there with the boss last win-
ter, I never ran across a man, woman
or child overmen years old, what
didn’t have something to say about
Harry, Evelyn, Delmas or somebody
else what was cutting a figure in that
trial. Some said that they sure
would be glad when that trial was
ovqr. But them was about the first
ones what wbuld buy papers as they
