It is * fair little aa-«?en, with stately lilt**
showing above the he >r4 breath of
a mnMitte stealing eat and lyds of lovers'
forr~'-me-not hidden .n the comer*.
Thaddeus tik»s *o rising early !n the

But one day he discovered that much
piaying of tennis was a weariness to the
flesh: that the sun gave him headache,
and he decided that literature was the
noble ca'lin* to which he would devote his
time and talents. And. forsooth, all else
was vanity, the others but fadine flowers;
here he would gather immortelles. For
here was demure Pr scilia, lettin* the

CUTTING I P A STEER.

based upon figure* secured tr m Swift &
Co. »,.« lUustration Is primarily inter,-.'-

Indicate* some of the reasons »ny one
lot of steers bring a hU''r:fr price than
another lot of tl»e UIM> age and weight.
In addition to 'he above, the diagram is
of interest as indicating the difference in
value of the various cuts and the tm
po ranee of this fac.or in the
value of fat sieers.
To t.se brevier the ill ue* ration is of the
graates' sU? nilicanee. From the farmer's

firiicic, and. like all o£har manufacturers,
ha alma to produce the article most in
demand. How shall he accomplish this?
What shall he the r> »1 aim of Hie modern
breeder of beef cattle? What particular
lines of Improvement offer opportunities
far the greatest success?
*n the first place let us consider this
diagram from the standpoint of the feeic-r.
There are at lmst two mecho is of making
the f»-» ling of be»»f animals more profit
able; first, by better methods of feeding,
thus reducing the coat of production, and
otid, by producing a more valuable ar
ticle. or in Oliver words feedlr.g better
? teers, The first method has been care
fully Imrefiiirated. and while we are yet
much in the dark as to some problems
of feeling. atlll with our Cheap food stuffs
I would aeein «: we have about r<-ach

We must then selee* Iv tter feed'r A W. at

made from the same quantity of fool,
for careful experin. MKB s< em to show that
tive r.a'lve will n ike a-.n u! as ntu >h gain
on a given quantity of fa» i .is the gro»>.
Wherein. then, shall we look for the su
perior of the grata over the
native? Not now considering the fact r
of early maturirv. t,he n*ain difference
lies in the Increased valufc of the finish" i
gmde over the native. The weil-fat
tened grade Invariably brings a greater
pri * p<r pound. He brings a greater
prl.te per p our. 1 because he has a greater

The season for academy cycllngr has al
reacy commenced. This year there are
lew enough who haunt the wheeling:
arenas, in search of instruction, but every
seeood woman, aza.sst U»e #tiflt ariniry
weather so<>n to set i~. is practicing. •*
only to improve her form, but to ga.n pr>-

cyci.ni now .1- a in doing fancy work,
playing games in the safeie. entering the
• arnivaia and ta.k:og part in th« week y
dances. A great many women, who can
afford it, have taken to pieces and stored
away the s out, handsome mach nes tn y
roie ail summer *und have Vk> «.i;. for
w nter use. very light ones. These, at a
go-jd d- .u of outlay, have 'oeen s >rgeous y
ornamented. Ti»e frames anl nickel parts
are treat««l with French gilt, coi.ara of
tiny silver sleigh beiis are fastened to the
handk-bars, the sxddlea are upho.-'ere i
in carved or embossed leather, and the
cords. !a .ng the dre.-s guar>i an-i chain
prote«"tor. are replaced with a brilliant
silk webbing.
The academy costumes are in keeping
tr-,h tn»» wheels and now. by way of morn
ing diversion, instead of the unprofitable
running in circles, merely for exercise, the
girls and tiie.r grandmothers play at the
good old-fashioned fjame of croquet. For
this unusually wide, high wickets,
fastened into in the fl and are sot
very far apart, pretty well usurping the
entire e;)ace of a big arena. Huge hard
gutta-percha balls, brightly painted and
numbered, are knocked about by lonjc
handled mallets, tipped with brass. N w
it requires not only considerable clever
ness in managing one's machine, but a
stout right arm to get, with any success,
through a game of bicycle croquet, but the
exercise it supplies is admirable.
Stout woirnn go in for croquet awheel,
to reduce their bust measure and regain
pliability of the waist line, while the sLini,
clever young creatures, who have no su
perfluous flesh to rid themselves of and
who have corquerd all other intricacies
of fancy wheeling practice, for exhibition
nights, try writing their names, long
words and mottoes.
The process sounds almost absurdly sim
ple. and yet U is one of the very hardest
things to Jo. All one needs is a long stick,
with a chalk crayon on the end, a piece of
moist sponge on the other and a big black
board on an eas r I in one corner of the
academy floor. Circling round the floor, as
the rsdor r.ears the board, she slows tip
and commences to write on a ruled line.
Her work must be done while she moves,
for not only has she to keep her balance,
but must pet out of the way of some rider
who Is following, armed also with crayon
and sponge.
If the first wheolwoman has allowed her
le'ters to sag below or run above a limit
line the writer who fol.ows the privi-
Ick<\ with her sponge, of blotting out the
