'KEPT SHEEP "ON THE RUN"
TO TILL ALL FRENCH SOIL
Government Will Be Farmer, as Every
Parcel of Ground Must Be
The cultivation of every parcel of
land in France to assure the maxi-
mum agricultural production is the
.aim of the French government, and
to bring this about the government
itself wiU act, says an exchange. A
bill has been prepared under the di-
rection of Jules Meline, minister of
agriculture, requesting the owners
of uncultivated land to begin tillage
within two weeks after notice, which
will be given by registered letter.
If land is not cultivated within the
time specified, the bill provides that
mayors of communities have the
right to requisition the ground and
order its cultivation, which will be
carried on under the direction of
town committees, the towns to assure
the funds necessary to carry on this

Tim manager of a big Australian
fheep-ranch engaged a ^discharged
sailor to do farm work/ He was putj
in charge of a large dock of sheep.
"Now, all. you've got to do," ex-
plained the manager, "is (o keep
them on the run."
A run is a large stretch of bush-
land inclosed by a fence, and sheep
have many ingenious mjetliods of
escaping from their own to neighbor-
ing runs and so getting mixed up
with oilier flocks.
At the end of a couple of hours
the manager rode up again—the air
was thick with dust, as though a
thousand head of cattle had passed
At last he distinguished the form
3f his new shepherd—a collapsed
heap prone upon the ground. Sur-
rounding him were the sheep, a piti-
ful, huddled mass, bleating plain-
tively, with considerably more than a
week's condition lost.
"What the dickens have you been
doing to those sheep?" shrieked the
ilmost frantic manager.
The ex-sailor managed to gasp
Jut: "Well, sir, I've done my best.
You told me to keep them on the
run, and so I hunted them up and
lown and round—and now—I'm just
lead beat fiiyself."
