If blinders nre used caie should be

of vision, til nil cases, unless the
horse Is so accustomed to blinders that
It Is absolutely unsafe to drive him
without, they should be dispensed
with, for they add nothing to n horse's
appenrnuee. ntul he Is much more com

It was 111 the fall of 1S3.1 that the
westeiu wheat ciop was so uuiiHUnlly
nbllliilant. especially so In eastern Kan
sin and western Mlssuuil and 11 king
the feitlle river valleys of this region,
where perhaps the drought of that
rummer was the least felt of aiiyvvheie
In that section, while still rnrther e.ist,
ns fur utmost as Indiana, the wheat
crop was almost n failure In com
parison. The Incident which I am nbout to ro
tate happened eaily In October of that
fall. Just nfter my tweuty-llrst birth
day. Cln.vton risk, n )mug man about
my own nge, mid myself had resolved
to Ftait wesl with the Intention of In
vesting our little savings In the wheat
business In some way that would pay
us 11 good Interest on our Investment.
We were full of pluck nud enthusiasm,
determined to venture our last dollar
Ip our enterprise. Knnsns was Just
nbout this time developing some Im
mense wheat soctlons nloug Its border,
and It wns In this direction we took our
course. We had a little over S?SOU he
tween us. and nfter more or less con
sideration or the matter nnd the out
look nhend we concluded to purchase
n traction engine nnd 11 linslilng ma
chine nnd with this outlTr strike off di
rectly westwnid through the wheat
regions. We went by mil to Jefferson
City, where we stopped over and went
to look at the thrashing equipments
manufactured theie. risk had no
knowledge whatever of engineering
In fact. 1 do not believe he knew tho
steam chest fiom the eccentric but I
had had a little experience and under
stood the points fairly well and lelt
quite confident that we would have
tio trouble us far us operating the out
fit was concerned. I lemember tuo
peculiar thrill or plensme I felt ns we
looked over the big Illicit silent mas.ses
of Iron nt .IclTcrson City mid thought
that liefoie long one of those Iron mon
sters would be pulsing and thlobblug
miller my hand After some little un
certainty and 11 great deal of advice
we dually selected a ill) horsepower en
gine as one In every way the best
adapted for our purpose, but upou ask
ing the price of the machine In view
we were Informed that we might have
It ut 11 limgalii. only l.'JOO. for the
whole outfit, consisting of the engine,
thrasher mid equipments.
The price was considerably more
than we had calculated upon paying,
nnd for 11 moment we were feeling
rather discouraged, for with only a
capital of about $S00 between us the
price wns beyond us. nud us we stood
there talklug It over mid considering
whether to buy a cheaper outllt or give
the enterprise up a young man well
dressed nud well nppeurlug btepped up
to us and said:
"I accidentally overheard some of
your conversation, from which I under
stand you lack $100 of the price of the
outfit you want. Now I have Just
about that amount hy me. nnd I am out
of work, mid If you will take me as
11 third partner we will buy the outllt I
and start out. I am willing to rlr.k
what little I've got. for I think we can
make n good thing out of It. Of
course." he went on. "I am n stranger
to you. nnd .von nre the same to me.
but I'll risk It If you will."
He did not seem like n bad sort of
fellow nt nil, and we wanted that par
ticular thrasher pretty badly, so nfter
Clayton and I had tallied the matter
over we decided to accept the stran
ger's offer nt once. After breakfast
the uext morning we went back down
to the works again nnd closed the bar
gain, and we became the owners or the
Gonlc, ns we concluded to call her.
After carefully Inspecting nud oiling
the machine I began tiring the engine,
which was nu Immense concern, the
huge six foot drive wheels being two
feet broad In order to pivveut them
sinking luto the soft soil of the prairie
Clayton mid Glenson (our new part
uerl were busy about the thrasher,
leaving me to my special charge of tho
engine. At last, nbout U o'clock, we
were nil ready to start. The tender

begnu to tremble nt SO pounds. Theli,
seizing the lever. I pulled the throttle
slowly open. The monster shivered ns
the steam rushed luto the cylinders.
Then ns the great wheels liegmi to
slowly revolve I blew the whistle, mid
with l-'lsli nud (ileasnn fis'illng the lire
nud looking nfter the ihrusher we were
off out along the country roads mid
across the prairie.
Probably no mechanic feels the pe
culiar love for his machine that the
engineer does as he works over It.
watching ut'd tending It ns carefully
as n mother does her child, noting the
wllllngiiess mid quickness nud. we
might almost say. the Intelligence with
which It respouds to every desire of Its
master, nud n feeling grows lu his
heart akin to the love of one person
bears for another.
I licgan to experience this feeling as
we were rumbling nloug over the rough
couutry roads and out across the roll
ing prairie as fust ns 11 iimu could run,
our great Iron steed answering Its
levers ns steadily nud us easily as a
well broken horse would Ids reins and
huullng the heavy thrusher behind.
We took a southwesterly course nud
after crossing the Osage river struck
I some extensive whenitlelds Just be

nnd In nbout a month's time we en un
to the Kansas line, which we m ruck
nearly parallel with Port Scott sud
nbout l.'O tulles southwest from Jef
ferson City. We could have worked
much longer In Missouri, but we were
uuiloits to take only such Jobs us l.ty
In our illicit course across to Kansas.
After crossing the Kansas line we set
tled down to -.bud lies, nud ns tho
wheat crop was unusually heavy this
year business was plentiful, ami the
high power of our machine eualded us
to run the wheat through with sur
prising rapidity, and we begun tu no
tice with pleasure that our hitherto
deplorably Hut pocl.etbooks weie be
ginning to swell out to quite 11 re
spectalile size. Tort Scott Is situated
nbout 1'J tulles from the border lino
between Kansas nud .Mlssuuil. nud
while we were thrashing In the vicin
ity of thnt place Clayton nud I began
to notice that our third partner. C lea
son, appeared lather stratige and that
he was over nt l-'ort Scott almost
every night, returning In the small
hours of the morulug.
"Where does he go?" asked risk one
evening nfter (ilcnson hud. ns usual,
started off. leaving us to look after
everything. "He sneaks off every
night Just this way, and I don't like
"Oil. well." I answered, "as lom as
ho uses us square It's uoue of our busi
ness where be cues."
"That's Just It." risk e.rlalmcd.
"Uow do we know thnt he Is not up to
some game or other'" Then, sinking
his voice a little lower, he continued:
J7c stopped his hartc ami looked Imcti.
"We don't know anything nbout this
chap, nlthough he see;us a good fellow
enough. He never says much uliout
himself to us. nud 1 think we had tet
ter keep our eyes open a little nny
wny." "How can he do us nny harm IT I
asked. "Ho has nn Interest In the
"Thnt Is more than I can tell." he re
plied thoughtfully, "yet 1 think lie will
bear watching nil right."
"All right." I repeated, staitln-: up.
"I'll go nud fix the lire for the night,
and we'll pull nut or this the llrst thing
lu the morning." We had Just llinslied
a large stuck that day. nud nil the
hands had gone off except l-'lsk und
myself, nnd one of us generally staid
with the machine night nud day Just
os I had finished hanking the lire in the
tire box ror the night I thought I heart!
n slight rustle lu the straw. I.ke u step,
at the other end of the engine, hut It
wns too dark for me to see anything,
and as I did not hear It again I con
cluded that It was only a Held mouse

show up that night. In the morning by
sunrise 1 had n lonrlng the in the fur
nace, nnd the steam had liegmi in mnkc
a little when I noticed It escaping In
Email white clouds from the cylinder
heads. This bin prised me n little, for
I knew that they weie nil tight when
we shut down the night lie fore, nud I
stepped mound to Investigate, nnd
upon n closer Investigation I found that
the cylinder bend had lieen unbolted
and the packing lemoved. The throttle
had nlso Ix-cn tampered with, and It
would uot close tightly, thus letting the
Meant escape luto the cylinder nnd
showing its the loss heroic we other
wise would have noticed It. I hastened
to the tender, wheie the spate packing
was kept, but It was gone
I was by this time somewhat ex
cited, and. culling I'lsk. together we
made n more caieful cxiiiiilnatlou of
the entire machine, but found nothing
else disturbed It was only too evi
dent thnt some person or persons had
removed the nililier packing fiom thu
cylinder heads for the pin pose or dis
abling us Who It could have been
