All picklng-hauies are compelled to have them A steir Is trained lo lead the animals out of tho pns through the lorg ov emend bridges Into the tiackltiK-house and down into the klllirg-room. Such a steer is tailed "Judas It.irict" usuallj-. Some of them hive bo. ome famoi.s for their Intelli gence. But there generally comers a timo when thej grow- unrulj- or careless, or their powers fail, and thej- themselves are led to the slaughter. In one of the paeklns-houses In lCan s is City In which a great rasny sheep are plaurhtcred n goat I employed to entice shevp from the stock jards where thej are brought to the kiliinc psn.s In the house, a long distance from tho yards to the house, through strwts, over a river and a railroid yard by brldg" and through lanes. Without an animal to lead them it wnuld be impossible to get a large flock of sheep home eafelj . and expcditlouslj-. The goat's name Is Willie, and he Is tha cleverest beast of his kind. He cost -h-H-M--'rK",W--I"Ml- t t f z ti less than $. lut do the work that a I""" a j ear clrk could not lo half so well. If at all. Th sheep follow Willie with impl'clt confidence, and tie leida huudri Is of them to their doom cverj day. When the h,ep buj-er goes about tho stock vjrda buying the Hnim.ils Willie follows him. The jards are dlvid- $ cd into pens bv fences. On tcp tf each .-. fence Is a footboard, along which the bujer walks inspecting the nnlmite thit he dtslnsi to buy. Willie walks tho fences with the bujer and climbs up and down the step with cie. When the sheep aro all bought a boj- opens the gate and leads the way. Willie follow., the boj: the shep follow Willie. Tho rhe-p could not bo induced to follow the boy unless A illle mi th-re. Occasionally Wlliio gets tired of being good, and when ha is n lughtj' he Is very like "tho littlo girl who had a little curl," and then he Is horrid, and that Is bad for the sheep business. When this occurs Willie Is not coaxed or pam pered in tbe least. HLs mister simply., takes a big hickory club and maltreats him, and In a few- mlnutrn one would think Willie had the disposition of an, angel. MH HIIHH-UffH-T-H f
