GOOD GRAZING LANDS
Large Tracts Near Chicago Owned
Tliou»an<)« of Sheep Feed t pon Mead
ows Close to the City—Sale» of
the Animal* \ early
Twenty-five hundred thousand head
of sheep annually feed and fatten at
Chicago's western gateway, grazing
in meadows fewer than 50 miles from
the city limits.
The immense grazing grounds over
which these producers of wool and
mutton roam until they have resched
the killing condition are owned for
the most part by the big western rail
roads. They are of immense value,
Iving so close to the boundaries of
a big city, and upon wiem are erected
expensive plan'E for shearing and dip
ping sheep. But the railroads do not
complain of the first cost or of the
expense of maintenance, for these
yards bring to them an immensely
valuable traffic and one that is con
stantly on the increase.
Ten years ago Chicago was a small
consumer of mutton. Then sheep
were raised for their wool and the
carcasses were considered of little val
ue. Along came the removal of the
high protective tariff on wool and the
profits of the sheepraisers dwindled.
Their attention was 'hen called to the
wool producer as an article of diet,
the old-time strains were crossed and
changed until America began to pro
duce an animal for food purposes the
equal of the famous English sheep.
American butchers, too, made great
strides in the science of slaughter, and
Englishmen no longer complain of the
quality of the mutton served to them
here. The result is apparent in the
statistic of the Chicago stockyards,
which show that the demand for mut
ton in this city has increased dur
ing the last ten years 400 per cent.
One of the greatest sheep stations
in the - vicinity of Chicago is that of
the Chicago, Burlington <fc Quincy, at
Montgomery. It lies just three miles
west of Aurora and 40 miles from the
city limits. It is large enougJi to ac
commodate 50.000 sheep at one time.
In the shearing shop are 20 machines,
capable of clipping 2,100 sheep each
In this big shearing pen the wind lit
erally is "tempered to the ihorn
lamb," for artificial heat is provided
and so regulaUc. that the animals just
deprived of their heavy coats may not
suffer on account of the change. Shear
ing goes on here in the coldest months
of the year as during midsum
mer, the animals being confined with
in the heated sheds until they have
gotten used to the loss of their coats.
They are transferred from time to
time to sheds having lower tempera
ture until the journey into the open
air does not chili them.
At Montgomery and at Piano tliis
road provides 1,000 acres of lands for
purpofees. A prain elevator,
a capacity of 100,000 bushels,
and hay barne, in which 500 tons may
be stored, are prominent objects upon
the biff farm. The herds are treated
to mineral water of a quality so good
that much of It is bottled for table
use in this city. A big hotel accom
modates the owners of the sheep un
til such times are the animals are
ready for market.
Xj other corporate interest dealt)
as lightly with its customers as the
railroads with the sheeprai-.er. In
every case the yardage is free. The
grain consumed is charged for at es
tablished rates, according to the mar
ket price, (j ra/.irif? co:-.i- the uniform
rate of one-half of one cent a day
per head. All the work about the sta
tion is done by railroad employee, who
work upon fixed salaries.
Dipping costs S'/g cents per head.
Shearing is done for ten cents a head.
Of this seven cents go«.-H to the op
erator and three cents toward the
maintenance of the plant. All shear
ing is done by machinery, and it is said
that the excess wool secured by this
method more tiian pays the cost of re
moving the coat.
No part of the expense incurred after
the sheep are landed at the railroad
company'* plant is collected until 1 lie
owner of the hlieep has disposed of
thcr/r. The charges follow the mani
fest, arid the drover *ettle* the whole
bill at'the st ockya rd*. In one ca*e
a Montana droter, who k'-pt hi flock*
at Montgomery, shipped them to Liv
erpool. He wan obliged to pay only
hi* personal expense* up to the time
he disposed of hi* sheep, when the bill
of the Burlington wah collected.—Chi

FIRST MAHOGANY BUREAU.
One of tbe Moat Beautiful of Wood*
Had a Hard Fight
Many people suppose that the use
of mahogany for the manufacture of
furniture is very ancient. As a mat
ter of fact, the first record we have
of thus rare wood is in 1695, when Sir
Walter Raleigh repaired one of his
ship* with it in the port of Trinidad.
The next we hear of mahogany ia
many years later, when an Englishman
who was sailing from one of the West
Indies used quite a lot of what ap
peared to him rough lumber for bal
last, and when he arrived in England
and found his brother building a house
he gave this apparently ill-featured
timber to him for his house. When
his brother turned the lumber over
to his carpenters, they refused to use
it, because it was so hard that it spoiled
| their -tools; so its use for building that
I house was abandoned.
His wife, however, a short time after
I gave some of this wood to her cabinet-
I maker in order to have him make for
her a candle box. He, too, complained
of the hardness o 1 the wood and its
effect upon his tools. The candle box
was finished at last, however, and it
was so handsome, having taken on such
a beautiful polish, that this box be
came quite a curiosity among the so
ciety people of that day; so much so
'that the lady's husband had the same
cabinetmaker make him a bureau of
the same wood. The bureau was so
unusually beautiful that the cabinet
maker went regularly into the busi
ness of manufacturing bureaus, and
made not only a reputation, but a
Targe fortune out of the business.—
