"Dick the Hitcher."
Dick, a large bay horse at the Kan
sas City stock yards horse and mule
barn. i., probably the most widely
known animal in the west among
horse traders. His official name is
'Dick the Hitcher." All horses sold
by the Stock Yard Horse and Mule
Commission company, under a guar
antee of work and wind, are hitched
with Dick to a large transfer wagon
and given a test of their working
powers and lungs.
Just east of the horse barn is a
large lot, in which horses are tested
and shown. After the horse to be
tested is hitched with Dick, the driv
er, C. Shellhaas, starts the team on a
trot down the west side of the lot and
turns at the souh end, coming back
on a dead run.
About five and one-half years ago
Dick was brought in from Kansas
with a load of common horses and for
lack of a better animal was pressed
into service as the "hitcher." Since
that time he has been hitched with
oo horses a week or 28,600 horses
since he came here. Dick is 11 years
old, 15 hands high and weigs 1385
pounds. He has the reputation of be
ing the best horse in the United
States for hitching and a number of
fancy offers from other ,markets for
Dick have been refuse'd.
The English Face.
It was an American who, meeting
an Englishman in a country hotel in
the state, opened conversation sym
pathetically with the word: "Cheer
~pf It may not,be true, and if it is
true it may be all for the best." And
he was surprised to find that the Brit
on's look of acute gloom was normal
and not the result of any more than
ordinary bad news. The prevailing
notion of the American with regard
to the Englishman is that he looks
"as if his only friend on earth was a
yellow dog, and he had lost the dog."
For years the habitants of the states
have been scrutinizing the faces of
British visitors to try to ascertain
whether their resigned expression is
due to a recent bereavement, confirm
ed misanthropy or simply to super
ciliousness. According to a weekly
paper sme, America== attribute the
English face to the English climate.
"They did not look actually sad," said
an American lady to the writer, "or
happy or preoccupied, but they one
and all had an expression of resigna
tion-the only state of mind possible
with an English climate." This is
an ingenious explanation. Centuries
of rain and years of fog have had their
effect on our looks. There is indeed.
a certain dignity in the idea.
Child Thrift in France.
Thrift is a habit which requires to

What is done in this country by
voluntary organizations is done on a
larger scale in France by the savings
banks. The children of the common
schools deposit with their teachers
any sum of money they save from a

American cent-upward. Once a
month agents of the savings banks go
the rounds of the schools and collect
the chilren's savings. He who de

The Turkey and the Bol1 Weevil.
It has been demonstrated that the
turkey is a fine destroyer of the boll
weevil, the tobacco worm and the to
mato worm. They get fat on that sort
of diet and keep so with a bit of grain
thrown in once in a while and atten

boll weevil gets busy in the spring.

Two sisters past middle age who
