THE HOME CIRCLE. TROM TElARS TO PEARLS. Y RELV. FRANK W. LEWIS. The following lines were suggested by a statement made by Hugh Miller in his autobiography, that the common pearl.bearing muscle, found at low water in the friths of Scotland, is much more apt to contain pearls' when it lies in shallow fords, than when it reposes in calm, still ponds. The rough usage to which it is subjected in the fords, causes it to exude the substance which forms the pearls. Ye shells that lie so still, and sleep In glassy pools, clear, calm and deep, Whose waves the bending willows sweep, And gently stir. A tranquil life is this you lead; Like violets in some sheltered mead, Sunshine and food is all you need, And that is near. But in your shells there hidden lie No gems to stay the passer by, And with their brightness charm his eye, The scene we'll change. The waters rush and hurry past, O'er other shells, whose lot is c:nt Mid scenes far different from the last, More wild, more strange. Ye here are...

THE POULTRY YARD. HENS THAT DON'T SET. The non-sitting varieties of fowls comprise the different kinds of Hamburgs, Spanish, Leghorns and Polands, and also some of the French fowls, yet, we often meet with individuals of the foregoing breeds which are medium sitters. Non-sitters, if well bred, will not give one confirmed case of sitting ,among fifty birds, though they some times sit for a few hours or a day, but soon = leave oft. They often have periods of leav ing off laying for several days or a week These correspond to the sitting fever of the incubating breeds. The iastances of fowls sitting steadily, although belonging to a breed of pure non-sitters, shows reversion to the primitive type when incubation was universal. A cross between two different breeds of non-sitters will produce a race that will sit as regularly and persistently as any fowls. Some crosses between breeds a:re very desirable, but non-sitters should be kept pure, or the trait which constitutes their principal v...

Uoctyy LIIULtail gll-baU llmnIn, R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 4, 1876. IN TRAVELING through the Territory we find that sheep-growers have more fear of scab than any other disease. It seems they have tried all sorts of remedies, and in many instances, have failed to effect a cure ; hence a few of them are becoming discouraged, and claim that it is incurable. But the ma jority are too well I1uformed to come to any 1 such irrational conclusiorf Upon inquiring of those who have treated the disease, we find that they have dipped their sheep and turned them back on the same range, and kept them in the same corrals, without al lowing any time for such of the parasites as t may be sticking around on the particles of of wool about the corrals or bushes where they feed, have had time to perish. Under t this.mode of treatment it is very natural that the disease should break out again after treatment, and of course is incurable. But we know of a numpber of flocks that have been cured ...

STOCK RAISING. LINE-BEED SHORTHORNS. Beply of Col. Wm. S. King to an Editorial of Turf, Field and Farm. WASIINGTON, March 4, 1876. EDITons TURF, FIE. AND FARM: The unexpected introduction of my name in your article of two weeks since, thus making me a party to the public discussion and criti cisms of the Turf, Feld and Furn of what you term "a ring to keep up fancy grades," must be my excuse for again craving the use of your columns to reply to your edito rial comments upon my note, which you were so kind as to publish in your last issue. 1 The subject with which you are dealing is an important one, in which large interests are involved, and I am therefore anxious that in its discussion you start from sound and correct premises. You assume that " rings and combina tions" exist by which certain " fancy grades" of shorthorns, as you term them, are sought to be kept up above their real and actual market value by a system of false and de ceptive bidding.

Rocky Iountailln Hllusbanlman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, .MAY 11, 1876. IT has so long been customary for jour nals to praise their own state or territory, that the public looks for nothing else, and consequently, place but very little reliance in what an editor has to say in regard to the advancement of a country, which they regard it as his duty to praise, whether he can indeed do so conscientiously or not. Therefore, long editorials setting a country forth in all its advantages, are regarded as so much buncombe, and are received by the reading world as an empty argument, made only for their beauty of construction and high sounding rhetorical splendor, and to cover actual defects by drawing liberally upon the imagination, So firmly is this opinion riveted upon the public mind, that it is almost useless to devote our space to the subject. Yet, our conntry is possessed of many virtues, and thousands of good peo ple could make happy homes here; yes, thousands, who are nowv l...

STOCK RAISING. THE LINCOLN SHEEP. The following account of this admirable breed, is taken from the Shepherd's Manual, a very valuable book, just published by Or ange Judd & Co.: The Lincoln is the heaviest bodied sheep in existence. In 1826 a three-shear sheep of this breed (40 months old, or about that age,) was slaughtered in England, which dressed 967 Ibs. the quarter ; a two-shear sheep dress ed 91 lbs. per quarter, and a yearling dressed 71 lbs. per quarter. In a report on Lincoln sheep, it is stated that thirty 14-months-old wether lambs, slaughtered at Lincoln Fair, averaged 140 tbs. each, dressed weight, and 100 together of the lambs clipped 14 lbs. of washed wool apiece. The usual practice of the Lincolnshire breeders is to feed the sheep until about two years old, when they will have yielded a second fleece weighing 10 to 14 lbs., and will dress 120 to 160 lbs, dead weight for the butcher. The wool of this breed is very long and lustrous, measuring nine inches and over...

THE HOME CIRCLE. BETTER THAN GOLD. Better than gold is a conscience clear, Though toiling for bread in an humble sphere, Doubly blest with content and health, Untired by the lust of cares of wealth. Lowly living and lofty thought Adorn and ennoble a poor man's cot For man and morals, on nature's plan, Are the genuine test of a gentleman. Better than gold is the sweetvrepose Of the sons of toil, when their labors close; Better than gold is a poor man's sleep, And the balm that drops on his slumbers deep. Bring sleepy draughts to the downy bed, Where luxury pillows his aching head; His simpler opiate labor deems A shorter road to the land of dreams. Better than gold is a thinking 1hind, That in the realm of books can find A treasurer surpassing Australian ore, And live with the great and good of yore. A heart that can feel for a neigbor's woe, And share his joys with a genial.glow; With sympathies large enough to enfold All mnen as brothers-is better than gold. Better than gold is a p...

THE POULTRY YARD. TOULOUSE Oi E. Thls variety is doubtless the largest known. Men in general have an aversion to geese. and we don't blame them either, for what could the little, noisy, voracious, unruly common geese be considered on a farm but a nusiance, unless securely penned In some swampy field P This natural aver alon we were not exempt from till we tried the magnifinent Toulouse, and then it was dhanged to a liking for these geese. In ap pearance, they are noble and dignified, and will thrive without water to swim in, ifplen ty be provided for drink. They are never Unruly and can be fenced as easily as sheep; are very quiet not noisy, and extremely hardy. They are good layers, averaging 'about forty eggs each, in a season, and are seldom broody. If the old stock is not kept fat, and after spring opens only on pasture And vegetables, without grain, nearly every egg will hatch. The goslings are much stronger when young than the common, and are more easi ly raised than a pig. We...
