UNIFORMITY OF TYPE IN SHEEP i I i ft ' * Jnk „ - s'jrf-. : wvi^wixv .V. : An Ideal Flock Header. To the man that now has sheep of mixed bleeding or to the beginner we would say endeavor to have as uni- form a flock as possible. It Is not necessary to have a registered flock in order to have a successful one—in fact, but a very small percentage of the sheep In this country are regis- tered, says a writer in the American Cultivator. The first idea should be to deter- mine upon the type of sheep you wish to breed, and in determining this take into consideration the general en- vironment and market demands. Then select a pure-bred ram of the type you desire and grade up to the flock, al- ways taking pains to keep a pure bred of the same breed at the head. It seems i\ little expensive at times to do this, but the advantage of 'having better .lambs and a uniforn^ flock more than offsets the difference. For the beginner it is better, to go slowly and gain experience as you go than to start...

McNealus in the Dallas Democrat. No man wishing to write truth- fully concerning the practical side of partisan or factional poli- tics in the proceedings at the State Democratic Convention at San Antonio, on Aug. 18 and 14, can endorse or compliment the coarse, brutal and braaeu per- formances of the majority in that convention. It is not too severe to characterize this part of the convention work as rank political rcbbery and brute force faction- al ruffianism. The treatment accorded the Hon. On lieu F. Thomas, who had been regularly designated by caucus, repre- senting nearly 300 of the dele- gates to the convention, to pre- sent the name State Senator O. S.

Enjoyment for Dairy Herdr Water that is at the temperataure of melting Ice should not be given to animals and especially to milk cows. Much of the falling off of milk ascribed to cold weather is properly due to giving cows cold water to drink. All stock should be watered twice a day.

The wa- ter should be pumped into a long trough and after the cattle have drank all they want, the balance of the water should be drawn off. Horses should never be given ice-cold water, as it is tiable to produce colic and other stom- ach troubles.

The "plain sucker" is more particular as to his bait than the "fool sucker." The former bites best at those baits which prom- ise big dividends and sudden riches, such as mining stocks and bonds...
