During the war how Hcbools snd colleges

who is rarefnl of his -istr is a knight. The
boy vi Jio will never violate his word and
who v iii pledge his honor to his own heart
and ch.-.iige not will hive the confidence of
his follow. The l.oy who. defends the

the feelings of any one wi!lone day find
himself in the atmosphere of universal

this 1 do know: I never yet despised a man

The Kentucky Stock Farm is author
ity for the following: The farrier too
often makes a horse his patient for life
by ruthloKsly cutting way the elastic
cushion called the frog, which is nat
ure's natural support for the great
flexor tendon. This cushion is nature't
provision to support the center of the
horse's foot, to take off the strain from
the sensitive laminra with which the
hoof is connected with the foot, to pre
vent the extreme depression and conse
quent ftriiin on the fl?xor tendon, and
to break the concussion caused by the
horse's great weight coming so rapidly
to the ground. Vhen once severely cut
away the fro;r never entirely recovers its
original efficiency, and it will be a very
long time before it will be even moder
At the same time the enamel, like the
enamel rovrrins our finger nails, which
covers the whole of the outside of the
rolfs hoof, and effectually retains ite
moisture nr-A snpplen-i!. is rasped away
to make his foot fit the shoe and to give
it a round and uniform shape. Thus
two of nature'6 mott important provis
ions to wxure an elastic tread are ruth
lessly destroyed and the horse compelled
henceforth to stump and jar away with
his sensitive foot and loaded sinews rest
ing entirely on the dried and unyielding
crust of his hxf, made still more un
yielding by being nailed to an iron ring.

said to be between ths 1st of Septemler

climate and locality. December and
January are favorite months in many

and its strength its well jb its lasting
qualities depeud not only on its matur

which it is t;;k.n. The lea-st durable
and the weakest part of a tree is the sap
wood next the bark. Young trees have
an excess of sap wool, and timber from
such will not be as durable, especially iu
exposed positions, as the wood of mature
rra-s. The strength of wood is much in
