record that it may well be proud of.
On January the Hist of this year

recovered, and it shows a percentage
of ,ovcr ninely-tive terovered, this
extending buck to the dale when the
Association was in its infancy, when
the protection waa not what it is to
day, aril as it extends so will the
protection be greater. Anyone ol
tioiiud judgii-cnt can see that the As
sociation I'as surmounted its dillicul
ties. They havu now over three
hundred v.mkiu agents in Texas
and nearly lilty liere, and hope soon
to be able to ivporl u hundrid, and
it is thoroughly ndvcilic(? through

Kditor Hiundixo Inox :
Dkah Sin: The great nim of the
Protective and Detective Association
is to arrange a complete network of
L'uarils r.rouud all stock taken under
its protection so as to render such
stock iis(;(ss to thieves. This wc
do by liiving the owner of a C horse
a ccrlilicatu (which is a title to his
horse although the horse is in our
brand.) A thief may ste:d the horse
but he cannot get thu title, and the
V brand is now so well advertised
Unit no sensible man wants to buy
such a horcu without the .title. This
is what we. mean by saying that our
aim is lo render such stock worthless
to thieves. Our modu of proceeding
has bueu prulty fully explained in
another article, but all know that we
hav to depend largely on agents fr
the detail work throughout tliu coun
try. We try to u.-o diullion iu ap

errors or misconduct of any of our
