Many two year old full let dred with Good Ito Milta. The question has already Arisen this year and May arise next year Many times at what age it is proper to begin Breeding fillies says the Stock farm. There Are a Good Many breeders who insist on Breeding nothing but fully matured animals. These will put no Mare into the harem until she is 4 years old. They therefore have no Uso to which to put a Mare younger than -1 unless she is used on the track. A few years ago when Brood mares were quite in demand it became rather fashionable to Breed fillies at 2 years of age and or. Herr who was quite a successful breeder in his Day and a veterinarian As Well used to advise people win asked his opinion that if they intended a Mare fur a Brood Mare to Breed her As a 2-year-old. It has been said that mares when but 3 years old have no difficulty in foaling but Are liable to have at 4. However if a Mare has a foal at 3 she is usually rather a shy breeder at 4. Our own View of this matter is to follow As nearly As May be the indications of nature. In a wild state we believe that fillies Are very frequently probably generally. Impregnated As Early As 2 years old. have known cases where even yearling fillies have accidentally got with foal and been delivered As 2-year-ol is. Though this is unusual. know one such Case where the Mare when we saw her As a matured rare was about 16 hands High and showed no signs of retarded development. Long after her first Experiment she produced a pacer with a record of 2 15% and a Good campaigner. When fillies Are bred As Early As 2 years old they should have the Best of car before and after being bred. Particular pains should be taken that their growth should not be arrested. They should be particularly Well treated while suckling the foal and after its being weaned As an extra precaution. have known a great Many 2-year-old fillies bred without any bad consequences resulting and do not View that practice with any Disfavour. A jamaican experience. For some years after my marriage i lived at old Harbor a Small place about 20 Miles from Kingston. One Day when a visit to my Kingston dressmaker was a necessity i ordered a Young negro boy to get upon the rumble and drive me to the Tow n. I paid my visit to the dressmaker and receiving my frock a Light summer thing from her i placed it in the Box beneath the buggy seat and drove on to my Sisters where i went in to escape the heated part of the Day giving my boy sixpence and bidding him see the sights and return at 4 of clock. He turned up punctually with the Grin still on his face and in due time we reached old Harbor once More. When i went to take out my crispy Muslin 1 found to my consternation it was a wet Sloppy mass.

In human beings the sensitiveness of the internal organs is very Small As compared with that of the skin. Examples of this Are familiar to every one.

The buildings now up process of construction ure an armory Boathouse and Power House. These Are the first of the group of magnificent structures contemplated in the general scheme for the reconstruction of the training school of our Navy. The other buildings As appropriations Are made therefor will be erected in sequence of importance. When the proposed plan is carried out the buildings will he in three main groups one on each Side of the three sides of the Campus the water front forming the fourth Side. The cadets quarters will be 011 the right entering from the town the academic buildings on the left and the officers quarters As at present on a line parallel with and just inside the Wall which encloses the grounds on the Side toward the town. The cadets quarters standing Between the Campus and the great Parade ground will be flanked on one Side by the Boathouse 011 the other by the armory and will be connected by covered colonnades. One of the notable Structure s contemplated in the plan of improvements is the erection of a handsome new Chapel which is to be known As the Maine memorial Chapel plans for which draw by Ernest Flagg of new York were some time ago accepted by the government. The Chapel will occupy the highest Point on the grounds and will be a Noble Monument to the Brave sailors who perished on the battleship Maine la Havana Harbor. It will of course take some years to accomplish All this but every Friend of the Navy will rejoice that a fair Start has been made. There Are certainly reasons enough Why this work should have been begun and Why it should be carried Forward to completion without delay. For years the dilapidated condition of the naval Academy has been a discredit to the nation and altogether the Plant is out of keeping with the nations growth and greatness. The establishment of an institution for the training of the men who should uphold the stars and stripes on the seas was suggested to president Madison by his Secretary of the Navy William Jones but the recommendation took no tangible form until 1843, when it was established under president Polk. The location of the naval Academy is Ideal. The Severn upon whose Hanks it is situated is indeed a Beautiful Stream. Fully a mile in Oculi at the fact Deiny it enters the Chesapeake i a about three Miles below gradually widening to its Mouth. Above Annap it 11s the River extends 10 or 12 Miles but remains of Noble proportions while the High Hanks on either Side Are of cultivated Fields alternated by stretches of Woodland giving the surroundings pc Ture stueness and Beauty to tempt tin Pencil and Brush of the artist. Even West Point located As it is 011 one of flip imposing Sites of the historic Hudson does not out rival Annapolis in the Charm of its surroundings. With the completion of the contend plated improvements and enlargements Annapolis naval Academy will indeed be an institution of which every american May Well be proud. certainly have reason to be proud of the men living and dead whom it has Irivin to the ii Tion. Sepia of the latter Are rest ing in the Little cemetery just across an Arm of the Severn from the Academy from the Grassy slopes of which the Graves of Cushing and other naval heroes can plainly he seen by the Young Cadet whose ambition it in to win glory of the sea. On the Campus there Are Many inspiring reminders of the Gal Lant and patriotic achievements of thu nations heroic .

Special correspondence new York nov. 6.�?after All it is the Plain and simple things that we need the most and Wear the most. Are in our houses nearly All the time and the most of us have duties to do and no one can work at anything no matter what in her Host clothes. So there must be a whole list of things suitable for House requirements and there Are. The other Day i met by a Long tried plan mrs. Edwin Knowles one of the Cleverest and prettiest women in this country and As i got to our rendezvous first at the swell store where we were to meet i took the Opportunity to look about me and the result of my observations was that i saw ten dresses and other garments for House Wear to one Street costume. There was one room devoted especially to wrappers and Loose House gowns and some of these were Dainty and pretty enough to set one wild with desire to have them All just to look at. There was one of Pink Albatross cloth and the front was gathered from the neck to the feet and the Waist was held in by a Rich Pink Satin ribbon tied in a Long Bow and longer ends. Ribbon is coming into much More general use than before for a Long time. These dresses All have some sort of Yoke made of lace generally of the lighter qualities though i noticed one in Pearl Gray Cashmere where the Yoke and some trimming on the sleeves Are of the Cream coloured Renaissance lace. All have ribbon trimming in some Way. Some of them have several rows of narrow baby ribbon in the same color As the other ribbon used As belting and shoulder knots. This Gray Cashmere of which i just spoke has Short sleeves reaching but to the Elbow and under them Are other sleeves of Satin of the same Shade. All the ribbon to Garnish those Dainty dresses is of Satin except where Black velvet is used but it must be admitted that this is a Little too heavy and decided to be really artistic. It is striking though. There was a lounging Robe in the form of a japanese Kimono though with some slight modification in the sleeves which Are simply made Long and flowing instead of serving for pocket and general Catchall As Are the real Kimonos. This special one was of Tine Gray silk of the softer kind and this was quilted in squares and All the edges were bordered with a hand of Pink Satin also quilted. Instead of the Obi or wide Sash worn by the japanese women there was a soft netted silk Sash with tassels at the ends. This dress gave one an envy to cuddle Down on some cozy seat with a Good Book and forget the world and All its miseries. Two Steps from the place where these pretty garments were shown were the furs and wraps and of. Dear a new in my Man Tell Tiow ii Sti onid cd done. Quot people a round new York do not so in to understand opening oysters a said the new England Man a while in the most insignificant places in Rhode Island or Massachusetts there Are cd pits. Here you All have a regular instrument for it while in new England a Man can open an Oyster with nothing but a knife and do it quicker than any one can eat them without breaking the Shell. Here you have u Block of Lignum vital with a cold chisel or something of that nature standing up in the Center. On that the Man break tin Edge of the Oyster shells and the pries them open his knife. A now my Friend Aleck gave me lessons in opening oysters and 1 think 1 could do it myself hotter than any one 1 have been try it around Here. Aleck lived in a Small town whore he kept a very Small Market in which he sold meant on meat Days and fish on fridays and oysters ail the week through. A to open oysters As Aleck did you Lay the Oyster with the rounded half of the Shell in the hollow of your left hand with the hinge to the Fri t. Down about an Inch 01 an Inch and a half from Tho hinge is what Aleck called an Eye and in that he would insert his knife give a Quick upward motion and the upper Shell was off in a Jiffy the Oyster lying As clean As possible in the hollow Shell. It was out if it had to come out with another Quick motion of tin knife. There is really Only a Little Knack to it. Quot there was never an Oyster that Aleck could not open and with his eyes open or shut drunk or sober. Aleck was proud of his expert ass As an Oyster no r in a county of Oyster openers and it is when he was drunk that he was most to Likely to give exhibitions. Aleck was one of those men who Are never drunk in their legs. The liquor made him talk and he had an amiable desire to show off. A on the occasions of his special sprees he was Likely to take himself out of town to Boston or Providence and once he got As far away from Home As Chicago. Iii habit when he reached a strange place a to drop into an Oyster place and Tell the Man opening oysters that he did no to know anything about his business.
