POINTS ON BUYING A HORSE.
What to Have In Mind Whan Select
; Ina a New Animal.
Too many pcoplo buy horses with
but considering the purpose for which
they arc to bo used. They think a
horse is a horso the world round and
that there is but little difference ex
cept In size an dwelght. Experience
and observation has taught me that
the slopo of the shoulder has more
to do with the horse's ability than
disposition or other points.
The horso with the shoulder such as

shown In Fig. 1, which is almost per
pendicular, will bo able to pull a heavy
load wlthoilt Injuring his shoulders.
The collar will not work up and choke
him and his shoulders will stand up
well under heavy work. A horso with
shoulders like Fig. 2 will stand ordi
nary work and drlvo well, but a horso
wlfh very sloping shoulders like Fig.
3 Is sultablo only for use as a saddlo
horso. Such a shoulder usually goes
with a short coupling and well sprung
ribs, which are characteristic of a
good saddler, says Fnrm and Homo.
A horso with very sloping shoulders
cannot bo worked at heavy drafting
without a specially designed collar or

SPRAYING AND DIPPING CATTLE.
Latter Process the Only Method Where
Many Cattle Have to be Treated.
In South Africa Is a disease very
slmllur to Texas fever but the result
of a different germ. It la, however,
spread In the sumo manner as Is
Texas fever, by means of the tick. Tho
stockmen, therefore, arc fighting tho
ticks, and various methods nro being
used In this warfare. One of these
Is tho dipping of tho cattle, as in this
country, and another method Is tho
spraying of tho cattle. In this spray
ing, keroKene is usod, and to it is
sometimes added arsenic, to mako tho
effect of the spraying more pro
nounced. Kerosene mixed with water
is said to be harmless to tho skin of
tho cattle and to cost only about four
cents per head. The cost of dipping
Is not much more, but the cost of the
dipping plant Is considerable. This
Is the claim of tho men that practice
tho spraying and bellevo in it. The
men that hold to tho dipping as tho
most effective means stato their side
of ftho argument thus:
Spraying requires Ave times as
much tlmo as does dipping . On a
small farm spraying may bo tho
cheaper, but on a largo ranch where a
thousand cattle must bo treated, the
matter of time Ib a great one. It rc
quires as long to spray 200 cattle as
it would require to dip a thousand
Dipping destroys the tlcka much moro
effectively than docs spraying. For
this reason the dipping arrangement
has displaced tho Bpraying apparatus
on nearly all cattle ranches that carry
largo numbers of cattlo.

Mix Soap With Dough.
From a communication read to tho
Association of Belgian Chemists It
seems that continental bakers are In
(ho habit of mixing soup with their
dough to make their bread and pastry
nice and light. Tho quantity of snap
varies greatly. In fancy nrticlus llko
waffles and fritters it is saucli larger
than in bread.
Tho extraordinary popularity of flno
wl-.ilo goods this pumrner makes the
choice of Starch a matter of grcit im
portance. Defiance Starch, being frco
from all Injurious chemicals, is tho
only one which Is safe to uso on flno
fabrics. Its great strength as a stlff
cner makes half tho usual quantity of
Starch necessary, with tho result of
perfect finish, equal to that when the

Uses of Masks.
"Among tho North American Indians
the origin of tho uso of masks lay,"
says a writer, "In tho desiro to con
ceal tho emotions. Thus should two
warriors meet in combat, the mask
conceals any expression, whether of
sympathy, fear or other emotion. For
Instance, tho knowledge that fear was

Wrong Method of Teaching.
Consul Paul Nash, of Vcnlco, writes:
"Hundreds of well-educated Amorlcans
annually pass through Vcnlco nnd, al
though probably nine-tenths of them
have had several years of instruction
In a European languago, not ono

connected words of anything but Eng

from prize-winning In French or Gor
man, aro generally unablo to speak
either language, although capable of
writing an excellent thesis on their
history, philology, syntax and litera
ture. This is the result of teaching
French and German In much tho same
way that Latin and Greek are taught"
