No intelligent breeder will pin his faith
to pedigree alone, but a good pedigree is
one that usually produces meritorious
animals; and upon that fact tho valuo
of pedigree depends, rcdigrco, prop

the ancestry good, we can depend upon
it that individual excellence will bo
transmitted. Tho record of pedigrees
onables us to ascertain tho quality of tho
ancestry; and iu this particulars is in
valuable to all breeders. Pedigree may
bo, and doubtless has been, idolized to a
damaging extent in many cases; but it
will never do to run to the other extreme.
Willing to Give All the Security He Had.
Mr. Oscar Holden recently issued a
circular which stated the advantages of
guano (for which lie is an ngunt), nnd
that it would be sold to good parties on
approved security. Tho other day, as
Air. Holden was deeply wrapped in" tho
work of overhauling his mail matter, a
tall, ungainly negro walked in. "Morn
ing, Imss," said he, tipping his hat, and
scraping his otl'-foot backwards in token
of respect. Mr. Holden acknowledged
the salute, "lioss, Pse been led to lo
lieve you sells juano. Is dat so?".
Mr. lloldcn assured him it was a fact
beyond dispute. "Dey tells mo you
sells it on time. Is dat so?" Tho in
quisitive darkey was answered in the
affirmative. "Den I wants free tons of
juano right oil' on time.' Mr. Holden
asked him if ho had any security.
"S'curity? What's dat? I don't want
s'eurity. I wants de juano." At great
length sir. llolilen told mm what was
security, and that it was necessary for
him V) give a mortgage on something to
insure the payment for the guano. The
ditrkey studied a long while. He scratch
ed his head and patted his foot impa
tiently. Finally a happy idea struck
him, and he exclaimed: "Well, boss, I
ain't got no property ter mortgage, but

mighty willing to give you a mortgago
