Bob Yancy Finds Himself.
Mr Yancy awoke from a long

They saw Yancy's eyes widen with
a look of dumb horror.
“And you don’t know nothing about

Polly Bhook her head regretfully.
“Ten or thereabouts, ma'am. He
were a heap of comfort to me—” and
the whisper on Yancy's lips was won
derfully tender and wistful. He closed
his eyes and presently, lulled by the
boft ripple that bore them company,
fell into a restful sleep.
The raft drifted on Into the day’s
heat: and when at last Y'ancy awoke,
It was to find Henry and Keppel seat
ed beside him, each solacing him with
a small moist hand. Mrs. Cavendish
appeared, bringing Yancy's breakfast.
In her wake came Connie with the
baby, and the three little brothers
who were to be accorded the cher

“Y'ou-all ain't told me yo’ name

Mr. Yancy considered this likely.
The furious shrieking of a steam

“It's another of them hawgs, want

and fled to the steering oar.
The Judge Sees a Ghost.
Charley Norton’s good offices did
not end when he had furnished Judge
Price with a house, for Betty required
of him that he should supply that
gentleman with legal business as
Thus It happened that Judge Price,
before he had been ""three days In
Raleigh, received a civil note from
Mr. Norton asking him to search the
title to a certain timber tract held by
one Joseph Quald. The Judge, power
fully excited, told Mahaffy he was be
ing understood and appreciated.
The immediate result of Norton's
communication had been to send the
judge up the street to the court house.
He would show his client that he
could be punctual and painstaking.
Entering the court house, he found
himself in a narrow hall. He entered
the county clerk's office. He was al
ready known to this official, whose
name was Saul, and he now greeted
"A little matter of business brings
me here, sir," began the judge, with
a swelling chest and mellow accents.
“I am in some haste to look up a title
for my client. Mr. Norton."
Mr. Saul scrambled up out of the
depths of his chair and exerted him
self in the judge’s behalf.
"This is what you want, sir. Better
take the ledger to the window, the
light in here ain't much." He drew
forward a chair as he spoke, and the
judge, seating himself, began to pol
ish his spectacles with great delibera
"You've set on the bench, sir?” sug
gested Mr. Saul.
"In one of the eastern counties, but
my Inclination has never been toward
the judiciary.” He was turning the
leaves of the ledger as he spoke.
"Found It?” asked Mr. Saul. But
the judge gave him no answer; he
was staring down at the open pages
of the book. "Found the entry?” re
peated Mr. Saul.
"Eh—what’s that? No—” he ap
peared to hesitate. “Who is this man
"He's the owner of a hundred-thou
sand-acre tract in this and abutting
counties," said Mr. Saul.
"Who has charge of the land?”
"Colonel Fentress; he was old Gen
eral Ware's law partner. I've heard it
was the general who got this man
Quintard to make the Investment, but
that was before my time."
The judge lapsed into silence.
A step sounded in the narrow hall.
An instant later the door was pushed
open, and grateful for any Interrup
tion that would serve to take Mr.
Saul’s attention from himseir, the
judge abruptly turned his back on
the clerk and began to examine the
record before him. Insensibly, how
ever. the cold, level tones of the voice
that was addressing itself to Mr. Saul
quickened the beat of his pulse, the
throb of his heart, and struck back
through the years to a day from
which he reckoned time. He turned
slowly, as it in dread.
What he saw was a man verging
on sixty, lean and dark, with thin,
shaven cheeks of a bluish cast above
the jaw. and a strongly aquiline pro
file. Long, black,locks swept the col
lar of his coat, w hile his tall, spare
figure was habited in sleek broadcloth
and spotless linen. For a moment the
judge seemed to struggle with doubt. [
then his face went white and the book
slipped from his fingers to the win

CONFORMATION IS ESSENTIAL
IN BREEDING DRAFT HORSES
Of the 100,000 Animals Marketed at Chicago Not Mors
Than 5,000 Would he Termed A-l—Economy of
Heavy Mare on Farm for Work and Produ
cing Colts is Summed Up by Expert,
An Excellent Farm Team.
There are a number of considera
tions for the farmers to keep in mind
in breeding horses for the draft horse
trade. Among these are that size,
weight, condition and character each
bear an important influence in de
termining the prices paid on the mar
kets and therefore that this influence
is reflected upon the prices which
they receive from the country ship
pers and buyers, says the Wisconsin
Agriculturist. Nothing that influences
the large central markets for the prod
ucts of the farm fails to affect the
sale of a single article directly on the
Probably the one thing which the
general run of horses that reach the
markets lack more often than any
other is size and incidentally there
fore weight. It is stated from good
authority that there are more good
horses marketed in the Union Stock
Yards at Chicago than any other
place in the United States, and yet
of the 100,000 horses marketed there
not more than 25,000 would weigh
over 1,550 pounds, and not more than
5,000 were what would he termed A-l
horses. First class draft horses for
the city trade should not weigh less
than 1,600 pounds when in working
condition, and if they weigh 1,750
pounds they will satisfy all the better.
To carry such weights horses should
stand about 16 hands high or over
and shonld have conformations in
! their cost of maintenance and raise
colts worth §1,000.
The economy of the heavy mare on
I the farm, both from the standpoint of
! doing farm work and producing colts
compared with light and medium
i weight mares is nicely summed up as
follows by Secretary Dinsmore of the
Percheron Society of America: “The
cost of maintenance under farm con
ditions is about the same, the heavier
mares are more efficient in the work
of the farm, the' colts are ready for
work a year younger, and if carried
i to the same age, will bring about
twice as much as the colts from the
| light weight mares and about one
third or one-quarter more than the
colts from the medium weight mares."
This summary was drawn up after
some careful thinking, upon the ques
tion being put to the secretary by an
extensive land owner looking forward
to the purchase and breeding of
horses, “What kind of mares should
I use? I want to know ail things con
sidered, whether 1 should buy a 1,200
pound, a 1.400 pound or a 1,700 pound
mare?” In other words, the land
owner as a business man wanted to
know whtat would be the relative cost
of maintenance, what the relative effi
ciency on the farm and what the rela
tive market value of the colts pro
duced. of these three classes of mares.
Here is how he thinks out the mat
ter, and his thinking was based on ex
tended observation and experience:
The condition of a horse is all im
portant, both as to soundness and
thrift. Horses that have poor feet,
bad hocks, weak wind, or poor shoul
ders are sticklers on the market. They
sell very slowly and at very low
prices. So also do horses that are in
a poor condition of thrift. Fat always
helps to sell horses quickly and at
good prices, for it makes them look
good and the horses, moreover, do not
need to be conditioned before they
can be put to work. A horse which
looks thin when it leaves the farm is
liable to look considerably thinner
after it has been shipped and arrives
at the sales stables. Fat horses ship
far better than thin, thriftless ones.
Then, too, the suspicion of being a
poor doer on the best of care Is liable
to attach itself to the thin horse in
the mind of the buyer, whereas when
he looks upon a well conditioned
horse no such suspicion occurs to him.
Character Is a valuable asset to
any horse that is placed on the mar
ket, and like size and weight is gen
erally lacking in the usual stock of
horses to be selected from in the
country. A horse that shows intelli
gence, good breeding and those qual
ities that come through careful
handling and good training will out
sell the common, plain looking horses
by a considerable margin; size,
weight and condition being otherwise
The man on the farm engaging in
horse production from the viewpoint
of dollars and cents and anxious to
make his acres earn the highest net
returns should breed his mares to the
best sires that are available combin
ing size, weight, soundness and char
acter, and should breed to them con
sistently. They should endeavor also
as soon as possible, either by pur
chase or by breeding up, to possess
themselves of big drafty mares com
bining those qualities. The only re
grettable thing about the sale of the
dapple gray mares on the January
11, 1912 Chicago horse market for
$1,000, is that the mares were not
purchased by some good farmer to be
used for breeding and farm work pur
poses instead of by a Chicago teaming
firm to draw a big wagon. It is re
grettable that they should ever have
gotten away from the farm, for if
they were worth $1,000 for drawing a
big wagon and heavy loads, certainly
they were worth that on the farm
where they could do work to earn
All three classes can, of course, be
managed, as far as maintenance cost
is concerned, at about the same gen
eral figures. But In respect to working
efficiency, if we rate the 1.700 pound
horse at 100 per cent., liberal allow
ance is made if the 1.450 pound horse
is credited at 90 per cent., and the
1.200 pound horse at SO per cent The
colts bred to a good draft sire will
average somewhere about 1,500
pounds; colts from 1,450 pound mares
1,600 to 1,700 pounds, and colts from
1,700 pound mares, 1,800 to 2.000
pounds. Then, too, the lighter weight
colts necessarily make their full
weight only at maturity and they will:
not be fit to sell until they are four
and one-half or five years of age. The
same is true of the medium weight
colts, but buyers are scouring the
country for heavy colts. Every good
gelding is gathered up at three years
of age. The heavier colts sell earlier,
or if carried until they are older and
then put on the market, the prices ad-i
vance accordingly. Colts weighing
around 1,500 pounds will not bring
more than $140 to $175 on the average,
because they come in competition
with the great glut of common
light drafters on the market. Those
weighing around 1,650 pounds to 1,700
pounds will bring $200 to $240, and
heavy weight geldings will bring $300
to $350. The heavy mares therefore
produce colts that bring from one
third to twice as much money as the
lower weight mares.
Sizes of Silos.
A silo 12 feet in diameter and 30
feet high will hold when full about
75 tons of silage. A silo 14 feet In
diameter and 30 feet high will hold
about 103 tons. Twelve cows require
36 tons of silage to supply them 200
days at the rate of 30 pounds a day.
A silo 10 feet in diameter and 22 to
24 feet high would be a very good
size for this number of cattle. If it is
desirable to make some preparation
for summer, and as a rule It is, then
the silo should be built still higher. On
reasonably good land a yield of 10
tons per acre of green corn may be ex
pected. On very rich land as high as
20 tons of green corn are produced.
Don't Excite Cows.
Do not allow the cows to become
excited by hard driving, abuse, loud
talking, or any unnecessary disturb
Fed in Conjunction With Corn
Will Bring Animals Up to
Large Weight in
In finishing hogs I make a slop of
ground oats and shelled corn (ground)
and a small handful of oilmeal to each
hog, says a writer in Swine Breeders'
Journal. This feed, in conjunction
with ear corn, or shock corn If possi
ble, will bring hogs up to large
weights in a surprisingly short time.
I believe that most up-to-date stock
raisers will agree that with such kinds
of grain as wheat, rye and barley,
grinding and mixing with other feeds
is absolutely essential. For example,
no one would think of feeding wheat
to hogs without first thoroughly soak
ing it or running it through a feed
mill. It may not be necessary to grind
it very fine, but it should at least be*
crushed pretty completely, or ground
ine enough so that the hard, compact
portions of the grain will not go
through the animal, undigested. This
is true for old as well as young ani
Another point upon which most peo
ple will agree is that for the young
growing stock, especially animals
which do not have a full set of teeth,
grinding is necessary. It not only en
ables young animals to get more of
their feed, but they eat greater quan
tities and grow much more rapidly.
On unground feed of the type noted,
a young animal would do very little
good; but if wheat, barley, rye, etc.,
be ground and mixed with a little corn,
they will thrive.
A leveling board attached to the cul
tivator helps to reduce the loss of soil
moisture by evaporation. When the
ground is kept fine and level, less sur
face is exposed to the air and the
capillarity at the surface Is less ac
