A Bunch of
(By CAPT. A. H. WADDELL.)
The most useful citizen the coun
try can produce is the man who looks
upon the soil of the earth and says.
What can I grow from It or produce
Agriculture and live stock are the
main stays of humanity, and it Is to
the husbandman and breeder that
kings and princes as well as the hum
ble peasant must turn with thankful
ness and gratitude not only for the
blessings of life, but for existence it
self. Great Britain, the home and the
birthplace of the greatest breeders
and farmers the world has ever
known, owes this honored position to
the aristocracy of that country. It
was these people who of their means
and abundance sought for and ac
quired the ways of enriching and im
proving the soil and the animals that
grazed upon it.
Let an example by the highest in
the land, the country squire, the gen
tleman farmer, and eventually the
tenant farmer himself, each to a
greater or lesser extent, strive to
copy the teachings of the lords of the
manor until a keen rivalry of the
most friendly nature sprang up be
tween landlord and tenant, in a con
test for supremac. in the productions
of the farm and the live stock that
were bred thereon.
Agricultural shows sprang up In
the various counties at which were to
be seen the great draft horses, cat
tle, sheep and swine of the large
landed proprietors, standing side by
side, though in lesser numbers, with
those of the tenant farmer and even
the humble cottager. Looking on and
keenly observant, could be seen the
noble lord with his wife and chil
dren as well as the tenant farmer
and the cottager with all the mem
bers of their households and waiting
for the verdict of the judges who in
those early days stamped themselves
as the master breeders, and whose
names are written down upon the
role of honor of England's great
breeders and agriculturists.
Today, not only do the titled peo
ple, country gentlemen and farmers
of that land continue in their breed
ing and Its still further improvement,
but the professional and business men
of the towns and cities have taken it
up to such an extent and with suih

BAD SHOEING !
Otber TrowblM Cm
Step G laser xar
Is Recom mended
(By J. BAILST BRCCE.)
Owing to bad shoeing and also
many other causes many horses suffer
with contracted feet.
The heels are narrowed and the
horse steps gingerly with a desire to
extend himself when forced to trot or
The writer is now using a horse 21
years old and when he drove him for
the first time in December last saw
that he experienced great difficulty in
extending himself and especially on
rough or stonv roads.
He was shod with heel calks on the
front as well as the hind feet and it
was very perceptible that the heels of
his front feet were too narrow.
After three unsuccessful trials with
regular blacksmiths the horse was ex
amined by a competent veterinary sur
interest and consummate skill, that it
is difficult to find a man of wealth
who has a taste for breeding and
farming who is not occupying his leis
ure moments in this way.
It is this splendid state of affairs
that has made breeding and farming
what It is In Great Britain today, and
while that glorious old country can
learn much from the great, young,
robust and healthy United States, it
is gratifying to see American gentle
men of wealth taking a lesson from
the mother's book and going In for
legitimate methods of pedigreed stock
breeding and advanced modern farm
ing. The example that these gentlemen
are setting In this country will be fol
lowed by the same wholesome and
beneficial results in regard to farming
and pedigreed stock-breeding as was
achieved by the pioneers in England
years ago, until we shall eventually
find all the sections of this country
best fitted by nature for the highest
class of farming and breeding, occu
pied by gentlemen who are now lead
ing the way and setting this splendid
and useful example.
Work of Bees.
Three hundred billion bees, accord
ing to one expert apiarian, made
enough honey last year to fill a train
of cars long enough to reach from
New York to Buffalo. At the low
wholesale rate of 10 cents a pound it
was worth $25,000,000. and if the 700.
000 bee keepers of the country had
worked as industriously and skilfully
as did the bees, the weight of the
output would have been three times
as great and the value S75.000.000
Not only did the little workers con
tribute that vast supply of pure anc
delicious food product to the nation,
but as they made it they treated il
antiseptically with formic acid, thus
preventing impurities or decay.
Dutch Good Potato Raisers.
The potato crop of Holland is in
creasing rapidly both in the amount
of land cultivated and yield per acre.
The expansion of the potato industry
is credited to the use of drained peat
land for the crop and the application
of farm manure. The crop is gen
erally sprayed for potato blight, but
the potato insects do not seem to give
the Dutch growers much trouble.
