FARM AND GARDEN. The ryeland sheep. A Itreed Whose History Goes Hack Hatty Hundreds of Years. There is not another breed of sheep in England that can trace its history and origin so far back, or whose value t the sheep industry has hzen so con tinuous and sharply defined for so many centuries as the Kyeland. The accompanying illustration of a Rye land ewe suggests the origin of the breed, as there is considerable resem blance between her and the Merino ewe. This, with the peculiar character of the wool, leads, accardin to Wil liam Youatt, to the suspicion that the Ryeland breed may be of foreign ex traction. The Merino breed in Spain was one of those valuable gifts with which the Romans were accustomed to propitiate and enrich the people whom they conquered; they were never sat isfied until they had effected both the introduction of sheep and the estab lishment of manufactures. It is a historical fact that ten years after the invasion of Britain by the Romans, in the year :: 1!. C. ...

SHRINKAGE OF CORN. Experiments show the Loss In Weight to be Over Sixteen Per Cent. Habbisbubg, Pa., June 24. The McCormick Estate Fanners' Club in 1893 adopted a resolution asking the members of the club to make a test and find out by actual weight how much corn would shrink, or lose .in weight, from husking time until the next June 1. In accordance with that resolution ten farmers reported the shrinkage from November 1 to February 1 as 81 per cent, and the shrinkage from February 1 to June 1 as 7i per cent, or from husking time to June 1 next, 16g percent. In the above test each farmer took a double bushel of corn ears and kept them separate, weighing the same corn on the first of each month from November 1 to June 1, inclusive. The different weights were handed to a committee, and the aver age loss was calculated, with the above result. In 1804, after the above report was received by the club, it was resolved to make another trial, and instead of taking a double bushel of corn ea...
