If wo may take tho experience of Brighton people as a pointer, it is not aihisablc to agitate too energetically ior the general adoption of the auto matic telepbono as a means of escape from the dulcet-toned "engaged," and tho many other irritations that attend tho use of this now necessary institu tion under the existing system. So far tho manipulation of tho automatic apparatus on tho Brighton exchange has been more productive of tho conditions of biaiu storm than tho old Bystom.

WINTER CARE OF SHEEP. The coming round of tho winter, season is always ft. matter of eomo con cern to tho siieep-f&Tfiicr, particularly if ho Ims under his cart* a fairly largo number of sheep, for this time of tho year is one in which it is extremely difficult to keep up tho flock to tho level of perfection, winch may havo been attained during the summer season.
