D. Sniead in National Stockman and Farmer. Scab is Mentioned in teterl- nary worke as ft disease, cottiing under the head of the so-called parasitic diseases, and most writers have thus spoken of it, myself included. But properly speaking it can hardly be called a disease, being simply a condition produced by a parasite or an insect taking up its abode upon another animal and commencing to multiply and devour the larger animal like sheep, producing a general debility that may and will terminate in the death of the animal. Not only the insect producing scab'will do this, but the tick and the louse will also produce a condition of the sheep that may result in death. If means, are devised to get rid of the scab mite, tick or louse the larger animal soon recovers its normal condition without remedial agents. I therefore conclude that scab in sheep is not, properly speaking, a disease, ae it Is produced by a living animal that we hava to get rid of, and when that little insect is destroyed, there is no djsease to treat in the sheep. Not so in the" case of fevers and debillatlng disorders produced by bacterial germs; as they ilways leave the glanular system ac- ually diseased or the blood in an impoverished or vitiated condition from which the animal as a rule will not •ecover without remedial agents. I herefore am of the opinion that it is mproper to speak of scab as a dis- 'ase, hut call it an Infection ol scab mites, just as we would speak of in nfectlon of lice or ticks. No one speaks of the potato bus as a disease of'po- Htocs, yet the young of the potato bug (Colorado beetle) will practically at up the potato and destroy the life of the plant. Kill the bugs and the plant Jives. One is an Insect In the form of a bug that eats and destroys he life of a plant, the other is simply an invisible (to the naked eye) Insect that eats the animal, and in time kills it. Tho scab that is formed by reason of its presence don't kill the sheep, but it succumbs to the torture and eating of the blood when the insect is pi'fcsei.nt in sufficient numbers. I'lfK mid WoeiU. A few days ago, while on institute work In Minnesota, the editor of this department; visited a pen containing a HOW and five pigs. A glance showed that the animals were not iu good condition; that they were, in fact, in a fair way to demonstrate that the owner was a viclm of bad luck (?) in his hog department. They were be ing fed corn and slops from the house, says the "Farm, Stock and Homo." Constipation, poor digestion and other disorders were indicated by a certain dull, spiritless appearance, a want of thrift, and other conditions. Growing hard by the pen was a mass of pig weed and rag weed. A liberal bunch of the first was gathered and thrown into the pen. Sow and pigs immediately tumbled over each other to get at it, and ate it ravenously. Some rag weed was then supplied, and thai was rushed for with still greater haste and eaten with greater relish. The lust is a bitter weed, but It Is a tonic and appetizer, something that the pigs demand to correct the vices of a purely artificial diet, such as they were getting. Nature had-supplied the demand but a fence kept the pigs from it, and ignorance of its value had kept it from the pigs. It was learned that no sal was given to these pigs, another bringer of "bad luck," for hogs de marid salt as humans do. The ownei of these pigs received a valuable ob ject le.seon, and may it not be a point er to others? Confined pigs must have soft, green, succulent food if' thei; owner expects to escape "bad luck." Sunllowern In tlou Varcln. Sunflowers may become one of th principal plants for growing in Che her yard. There are several characteristic about them that make them particularly ad^jxtejd tO'thls purpose. In-the first place they grow to such a height that they cannot be disturbed after they have attained their first start. This in itself is a great advantage, for we are all impressed with the fact that most of our plants that are desirable for growing in such a place are so low- headed that the hens are able to destroy them in the first stages of their development. But the sunflower develops and develops till its great sunny head blazes far above the fence. A grove may be made of these plants or a shelter belt, with patches of grass between. The hens will find a delightful forest in which to wander during the hot months, and in the cool months of th,e a.fttupn tl^ey will, be kejit busy picking up the seeds that drop from the now reversed beads. If beauty be desired the stalks should be cut away and burned as soon as the heads have dropped their seeds. The Ewe Lambs.—The feeding ol the ewe lambs that are to furnish the new material for the flock should be liberal in every sense of the word. Feed them liberally on oats, and see that they get the best pasturage that it is possible to ueciire for thorn, aiid it will be found surprising how lus'.y they will grow during the first nine months of their lives. More can be done by liberally feeding the ewe lambs, to secure weight of both body and fleece in the flock, thaii by any other course that might be adopted. It is evident in the size and weight of the fleece; and, after the ewe lambs have been liberally fed during the first year, it is hardly possible to check their growth afterwards, as tUey then possess the power to do for tlsem^alves to a greater degree.—Ex.
