SOME BREEDING DEFINITIONS
Terms Applied to Various Animals as
Adopted by the Department
- of Agriculture.
(Prepared by the United States Depart-
i merit of Agriculture.) '
, The following definitions have been
adopted by the United States depart
ment of agriculture for use in the
"Better SiresBetter Stock" cam
paign: . '
Purebred A purebred animal is one
of pure breeding, representing a defi
nite, recognized breed and both of
whose parents were purebred anlpials
of the same breed. To be considered
purebred, live stock must be either
registered, eligible to registration, or
(in the absence of public registry for
that class) have such lineage that its
pure breeding can be definitely proved.
To be of good type and quality the ani
mal must be healthy, vigorous and a
creditable specimen of Its breed.
Thoroughbred The term "thorough
bred" applies accurately only to ths
breed of running horses eligible to reg
istration in the "General Stud Book"
of England, the "American Stud Book"
or affiliated stud books for thorough
bred horses in other countries.
; Standardbred Applied to "horses,
this term refers to a distinct breed of
American light horses, which includes
both trotters and pacers which are eli
gible to registration In the "American
Trotting Register." Applied to poul
try, the term includes all birds bred
to conform to the standards of form,
color, markings, weight, etc., for. the
various breeds under the standard of
perfection of the American Poultry as
sociation. ScrubA scrub is an animal of
mixed or unknown breeding without
definite type or markings. Such terms
as native, .mongrel, razorback, dung
hill, piney woods, cayuse, broncho and
mustang are somewhat . synonymous
with "scrub," although many of the
animals described by these terms have
a certain fixity of type even though
they present no evidence of systematic
Crossbred This term applies to
the progeny of purebred parents of
different breeds but of the same spe
cies. GradeA grade is the offspring re
sulting from mating a purebred with
a scrub, or from mating animals not
purebred but having close purebred
ancestors. The offspring of a pure
bred and a grade is also a grade, .but
through progressive improvement be
comes a high grade.
BULKY FEED FOR BROOD SOW
Clover Chaff When Scalded and Soaked
for Twelve Hours Is Palatable v"
In reply to frequent inquiries for a
bulky feed for wintering brood sows,
it may be said that clover, chaff, such
as accumulates on a barn floor, when
scalded and soaked for 12 hours, makes
a palatable and suitable feed of this
kind. It id, desirable to add a little
oilmeal or other millfeed to make it
"go." Sow will eat a good deal of
clover and alfalfa even when fed dry.
When they have access to it; sows will
also eat a little corn fodder.
SYSTEM OF SHEEP FARMING
One That Is Continuously Successful
Must Not Ignore Either Mut- V
ton or Wool.
A system of sheep farming that is
to be continuously successful can not
ignore either wool or mutton. In many
cases the two products will be worthy
of equal consideration. In others
either one may be emphasize 'accord
ing to ! the peculiarities of conditions,
management, and marketing. :

Le Boulevard Poissonniere in Old 'Paris.
HE boulevards of Paris, which
extend for a length of f our kilo
; meters tf and a ; half from -the
Madeleine to the Bastille In a
semi-circumference, are the rendezvous
of the world ; a picturesque crowd,
composed of the most heterogeneous
types of humanity, promenades cease
lessly the wide sidewalks,, where the
terraces of innumerable cafes lend an
air of good-humored If rather vulgar
familiarity to the whole scene.
The Paris boulevards may be said
to have originated in the deep muddy
trenches which were hastily dug
around the city In 1536, to repulse
the much-dreaded attacks of the Eng
lish who, having devastated Picardy,
were now threatening the capital, says
the Christian Science Monitor. The
first trees were planted in 1638, and
have been continually replaced since
then, although they have not ceased to
struggle bravely to live and thrive in
spite of the scarcity of light, air, and
Entrance to the Boulevards.
The starting point of the "boule
vards can be located at the Bastille ;
before the eighteenth century they be
gan at the entrance of the Rue St.
Antolne, so that the attention of the
stranger who entered' Paris by the
Porte St. Antolne was at once at
tracted by the looming , mass of the
state prison, and by the beautiful resi
dence of Beaumarchais, which played
a part In the Revolutionary drama.
One soon reaches the Boulevard du
Temple, today so calm, and essential
ly commercial with its numerous
baker, butcher, and grocer shops.
Once Upon a time, however, and not so
very long ago, it was called "the beau
tiful boulevard," for it was then the
favorite meeting place of courtiers
and rich bourgeois of the "Tout Paris,"
which even then was docile in obey
ing the dictates of fashion. Innumer
able theaters and 'shows lined both
sides of the roadway, giving the boule
vard the appearance of a perpetual
fair in whlclfa gay, laughing crowd
'paused to listen to the songs of Colle
and Piron sung by the' lovely Fan
chon la Vellleuse fcnd amused itself
with the antics of Nicolet's extraor
After the Place de la Republique
has been safely crossed, one saunters
up the Boulevard St. Martin, the road
way of which is, encased between high
sidewalks reached by mounting sev
eral steps. It extends tov the Porte
tit Martin, erected in 1674 by the
municipal corps of Paris to the glory
of Louis XIV. At nightfall the Boule
vard St. Martin acquires a certain ani
mation when the public presses
around the doors of the Ambigu
Comique,- the Renaissance and the
Porte St. Martin theaters. The Pprte
St. Martin was built In 90 days by Le
molne, at the end of the reign of
Louis XVI, to serve as a temporary
opera house. ?
But the sidewalks suddenly cease
to be terraced and slope, gently down
ward until they Teach their normal
height, and the, noisy Boulevard St.
Denis extends between the two monu
mental gateways, the beautiful bas
reliefs of which remind the passerby
of the taking of Limburg and the de
feat of the Germans, as well as of the
Ipassing of the Rhine and the taking
of the provinces by Louis XIV ex
ploits of which the "Sun King" was
justly proud. It must be remarked
that the escutcheon of the Porte St.
Denis with its fleur-de-lys Is the1 only
royal amblem which was respected
by the Revolution of 1848.
' Landmarks Along the Way.
The Boulevard Bonne Nouvelle has
preserved a number of old-fashioned
houses presenting a strong contrast
to the modern construction, which has
considerably spoiled the charm; of the
old boulevards so essentially Parisian.
Facing the aggressive stores, which
occupy a whole block, one : can still
see a picturesque corner distinctly
reminiscent of old Paris ; the angle
of the dark old Rue de la Lune, where
still exists a" famous pastry shop, "A
la Renommee de in Brioche," in which
for more than a .century, Parisians
have eaten .the famous, cake. The
Gymnase theatera few steps farther
lown, was built In the early part of
he last "century and is still one of
he most . fashionable theaters of
ar!s. - ' 'V. . . -
'.Froi; Jhe famous' Carrefour des
Ecrases, situated at the point where
the boulevard crosses at-right angles
the Rue and Faubourg Montmartre,
the Rue de Richelieu and the Rue
Drouot, there extends a sort of neu
tral zone the Boulevard Montmartre
which one jnight almost define as
the vestibule to the Boulevard des
Italiens. It was here, in the Passage
des Panoramas, that, lnil817, the ex
periment of lighting Paris by gas was
first attempted.. The Boulevard Mont
martre has lost most of its former
vogue; many of Its famous cafes,
which formed part of the life of the
city, no longer exist Brebant has
disappeared; the Cafe de Madrid,
which played an important part in the
political history of the second em
pire, and during the war was frequent
ed by the most famous "aces" of
French aviation such as Fonck and
Nungesser when on leave is becom-
TheJCafe de Mulhouse has been re
placed by the Musee Grevln, of wax
work celebrity. The Theater des Varl-
J-'etes, with the columns of its old-fash
ioned portico, is a souvenir of the past,
as well as is the Passage Verdeau of
which many people would surely for
get the existence were they not forci
bly reminded of it when showers
oblige them to seek a refuge in that
haunt once so fashionable.
The Rue de Richelieu marks the
beginning of the true boulevard, which
privileged region spans the .Place de
l'Opera to the Madeleine church. On
the crowded . sidewalks, rather ob
structed by the terraces of innumer-
Jrable cafes, one meets "all kinds and
conditions of men" in that most demo
cratic of all ' conglomerations and
that most banal a Parisian crowd.
Another Famed Thoroughfare. .
The Boulevard des Italiens was the
center of the brilliant, scandalous life
of the late" empire and early '30s.
There used to assemble at Tortoni's
at the Maison d'Or now transformed
into a post office at the Cafe de
Paris, those French dandies who
brought such laborious care , to the
imitation of the extravagances of their
English-models; at the corner of the
Rue Laffltte was sftuated the Cafe
Hardig, the meeting place of the agi
tators at the fall of the assignats and
which is celebrated as having been
the first Parisian cafe where (luncheons
were served "a la fourchette," that is,
where meat was served. , The Cafe
Anglais on the opposite side of the
boulevard was the most fashionable
restaurant of the second empire. It
was demolished recently, and, Paris
sighed at the disappearance of anoth
er of its favorite TiSunts. The Pa
vilion de Hanovre, facing the Vaude
ville theater, now shelters the shop of
a prosperous silversmith; but it is
of noble origlrX having formerly be
longed to the duke of Richelieu, who
had, so runs the legend, built" It with
the product of the golden and silver
laurels' he obtained 1y hook or by
crook during the Hanoverian, war.
Hence the nickname which has ever
since remained attached to the beau
tiful and luxurious building.
The Boulevard des Capucines, which
starts from the Vaudeville and spans
the Place de l'Opera, is always ex
tremely animated with its numerous
hotels, clubs and shops. It belongs in
some sort to history, for it was from
the garden of the . Capucines (which
has disappeared long since) that the
first pistol shot which transformed
the riot of 1848 Into a regular revo
lution was fired.
, Processions- and, corteges of all
kinds, both civil and military, peace
ful, threatening or triumphant, have
through the centuries passed down
the boulevards, stamping history into
the very footway they followed. But
surely , the old avenues never wit
nessed a more solemn or symbolical
scene , than the parade .of the allied
troops, which, on the 14th of July,
preceded - by - their glorious tattered
banners, marched down the boule
vards . toward the Place de la Be
publlque. -V; - - , '

LESSON FOR DECEMBER 14
AT THE TRIAL, CRUCIFIXION AND
RESURRECTION OF JESUS.
LESSON TEXTS John' 18:15-27; l;25-;
:1-10; 21: 15-19.
GOLDEN TEXT For God so loved the
World, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16. :- v - i
Since the lessons of the quarter center
In the lives of Peter and, John It will be
well '"to include In the day's lesson the
incidents in their lives from the trial of
Jesus to his resurrection. This will en
able us to use the committee's alternative
lesson, "The Prince of Peace," for a
Christmas lesson next Sunday. - ' '
I. Peter Denies the Lord (18:15-18,
1. Before the servant maid (vv. 15
18). Peter's first blunder was to at
tempt to follow . Jesus at this time.
Christ had told him that he could not
follow now (13:36). Presumptuous
boldness oftentimes places one in an
embarrassing position. In such cases
compromise or cowardly denial usu
ally follows. Wisdom s to our weak
nesses should move one to avoid un
necessary trials. John, seeing Peter
standing at the door, introduced him
to the house of the high priest. Here
under the taunt of a Jewish maid he
openly denied his Lord.
2. Before the servant and officers
(v. 25). Peter had not only ventured
where It was not necessary, but was
warming himself at the enemies' fire.
Having quailed before the sarcastic
impudence of a servant maid he open
ly denied his relationship with the
Lord when questioned by the officers
and servants at whose fire he was
warming himself. To have a clear and
Independent testimony, one should be
separate from sinners (n Cor. 6 :14-18).
8. Before the kinsman of Malchus
(w. 26, 27). This man had seen Peter
with Jesus in Gethsemane when Peter
In his rashness smote off the ear of
Malchus see verse 10). Hearing Pet
ar's denial, this servant of the high
priest put the question, "Did I not see
thee in the gsrrden with him?" When
Peter uttered the third denial the cock
crewj bringing1 to his ' attention the
warning words of Jesus (Mark 14:72).
This is an example, of what a disciple
of Jesus may do In the hour of great
II. Jesus Commits His Mother to
Though suffering the Indescribable
anguish of the cross he tenderly re
membered his grief-stricken mother
and charged John to care for her. Mary
had other sons who should have cared
for her, but they were unbelievers till
after Jesus' resurrection. He knew that
his mother weuld have better care at
the hands of the beloved disciples than
at the hands of her own children who
did not believe in and love Jesus. Love
to Jesus is stronger than human affec
tion. III. Peter and John at Jesus' Tomb
When Mary came In breathless haste,
announcing the fact of the empty tomb,
Peter and John ran to investigate.
When John came to the tomb he gazed
Into It, but when Peter came he went
In. John with holy reverence hesitated
to enter, but Peter through his Impul
siveness entered at once. The difference
does not lie in .the fact that one loves
more than the other, but in their differ
ent temperaments. One should not
expect the same behavior from alL
This Investigation was convincing (v.
8). , V ' . ;. ;: . .
i IV. Peter's Restoration and Com
mission (21 :15-19). '
Peter had thrice denied the Lord,
so before he again entered the service
he had thrice to confess his Jove for
Jesus. In this commission to Peter
Is set forth the motive and nature of
service which ls Incumbent upon all
Christian ministers and teachers.
1. His motive love for Christ. Love
Is the supreme qualification for service
,for Christ; It is the very spring from
which all activity flows. It Is not
learning and eloquence, but love that
makes a pastor. (1) "Feed my Iambs.
The word for "feed as well as "iambs.
signifies that the work here is that of
nurturing the babes In Christ. ' (2)
"Feed my sheep. The word here
means to feed, guide, correct, and lead
the maturer class of Christians. , It
carries with It - not only the responsi
bility of feeding, but correction and'
discipline. If this be attempted with
out love, failure will Inevitably ensue.
(3) "Feed my sheep." Thi s relates
to the care of the aged Chrtxt'ans.
The word "feed" returns somewhat to
the meaning In the first Instant where
. he fays, "feed my lambs. so hn t the
ministers responsibility to cure for
the aged Is equivalent? to that of the
young. - . V: , t . -
