AGE OF CATTLE DETERMINED
Each Year Leaves Its Mark on Grind?

The age of cattle can be approximat

ment and subsequent wear of their
second incisor teeth, according to
Farmers' Bulletin 1066 just issued by
the United States department of agri
Cattle have eight Incisor teeth, all
In the lower jaw. In the calf at birth
two or more of the temporary or first
incisor teeth are present. With the
first month the entire eight incisors
have appeared. Each of the six stages

shown in the bulletin by illustrations
which will be very helpful to the per
son desirous of becoming proficient In
judging the age of cattle.
As the animal approaches two years
of age the center pair of temporary in

the permanent pinchers, which at two
years attain full development
At from two and one-half to three
years the permanent, first Intermedi

Teloped at three years.
At three and one-half years the sec

the corner teeth are replaced, the ani

pinchers usually being leveled at six

It seemed'to Miss Mary Burton that
she tad reached the very height of
earthly felicity when she became the
sole owner of a home of her own. For
fifteen years she had taught school,
carefully saved her money and now at
thirty-five with a paid up annuity pol
icy bringing her forty dollars a month
she had settled down amid beauty and
The house was very pleasantly ar
ranged and there was a two-acre gar
den. This latter had been neglected
and Miss Burton had great ideas of
improving it as she accumulated the
money to do so. An orphan niece, My
ra Davis,, had come to live with her,
bringing'the furnishings of two rooms,
inherited from her mother. The ar
rangement was that Myra should as
sist about tte house, and if they could
get. a little ,fancy work to do they
would join In this feature of increas
ing their income.
"The first thing we must do is to get
that old chicken yard in order," said
Myra. "It will take about fifty yards
of poultry netting to patch up the old
i fence and a new gate must be made
I for it. There's laying boxes to get for
the chickens, too, and the Inside shed
ought to be whitewashed. You'll leave
all that to me, won't you, Aunty?"
Miss Burton was fully agreeable to
tbis arrangement. Her own hobby
about the place was a cherry tree that
occupied the center of the garden. "It
. bore for the first time last year," a
neighbors tell me," she said to Myra.
"There was only a little fruit then, but
this will be a good year for it. All my
life I've longed to be able to put up
fruit raised by my own hands."
So Miss Burton sprayed the tree and
watched the buds grow into little green
globes and cleaned and polished some
eld fruit jars and made great prepara
tions for the harvesting of ter treas
Meantime Myra lived In a sort of
elysium of delight. Her forte was mak
ing things spick and span and keeping
them so. She was trying to straighten,
stretch and attach a roll of poultry
wire to posts one afternoon when a
young man of about twenty-two came
along. He was rolling a lawn mower
and had a small canvas bag, evidently
"Just let me save you time and
trouble, young lady," he spoke briskly.
"You've got too pretty fingers to
scratch and mush up with such rough
work. Using nails? Ot, that won't
do ! Here's what you need for tacking
and holding wire," and he took from
his kit a box containing u-shaped
Myra liked his face and manner
anybody would, for he was all smiles
and good nature. He looked as If he
would feel hurt if she declined his
help, but she said, "We are doing most
of the work around here, Aunty and
myself. We haven't got much money."
"Ot, that won't be work for me," de-.
dared the young man. "I've got a lit
tle leisure. Now then, you take this
awl and hold the wire true while I
nail. That's it. Famous! Just getting
ready to make a farm of the place,
eh? I'm picking .up a sort of tempo
ary living staying here for a week or
two. I know something about garden
work and if you don't mind I'll drop
around once in a while and give you
"Oh, If you would !" exclaimed Myra,
and in her ingenuous way told of Miss
Burton's agricultural ambitious. It led
to her interested visitor telling her
something about himself. His was a
curious story. He gave her his name
as Archie Lull, and related that he
had come from another state where
he had been In charge of a grain ele
vator for a wealthy relative. One day
a maudlin produce buyer had quar
reled with his wife In the elevator
office and had struck her. All the man
hood of Lull resented the brutality.
He had given the man the trouncing
of his life. The latter was Influential
and threatened to prosecute Lull to the
"It was cowardly to run away," con
fessed Lull, "but I was tired of the
monotonous job anyway, so I've sort
of made myself scarce."
He was a tireless worker, well In
formed, agreeable and accomodating
and he made many new friends. He
won the heartiest appreciation of Miss
Burton by putting up a scarecrow to 1
keep away the robins and blackbirds
from her precious cherries and cur
In making the scarecrow Lull had
used "an old coat of no value," he de
clared, "too loud to wear on the
street-Just used it inside the eleva
tor office." It was conspicuous and did
its work well. One day a man motor
ing by halted and came up to the
"Young lady," he spoke to Mjra, "ex
cuse me, but that coat on your bnar>
CTOW strikes me as familiar. Would
you tell me something of Its owner?"
and then, as Lull appeared, he extend
ed his hand with heartiness and the
words : "Lucky I've found you. There's
a lot to tell you."
What the attorney told Archie Lull
was that his relative, dying, had left
him one of the heirs to a considerable
amount Miss Burton looked disap
pointed and Myra sad at losing the
companionship of their cheery, helpful
"But rm coming back," declared
Archie, and he did. It was to court
the winsome Myra and with her later
settle down on Miss Burton's minia
ture farm as (he dearest spot on earth.
