I-Mwin Winston, a New York gen
tk*Li ..u. being ordered by his daugh
ter's physician to take her to a south
western climate, where the air is dry
as well as comparatively warm during
the winter months, took board in a
ranch house In New Mexico, spending
his time riding and driving with bis
One day the two met a cowboy
whose appearance was different from
those usually occupied in punching
cows. His bair was rather long, and
his beard was trimmed to a point. His
eyes were large and wore a dreamy
expression. He bowed to the couple
as he passed them, taking off his som
brero with a courtesy not common
among those of his calling.
The next morning the young man
rode up to the porch on which Virgin
ia Winston was sitting. He carried
before him a box. while strapped be
hind him were an artist's easel, maul
Btlck and other artistic appurtenances.
Raising his hat to Miss Winston, be
"I noticed you yesterday when I met
you and was seized with a desire to
transfer your face to canvas. I have
come to beg that privilege."
The young lady did not reply for a
few moments. She was flattered at
the request, but knew that her fa
ther's permission must be obtained.
"I do not know you." she said. "In
the east, where I come from, there is
a certain formality about such mat
"I am called the plains artist," he
said. "No one here knows anything
about me, and I have no intention of
informing them. If you will give me
the required number of sittings I will
come here and do the work on this
"And yonr price for the portrait
when It is finished?"
"It shall belong to yon."
"Very well. I will ask my father
and will let you know if you will come
The next morning the artist of the
plains rode up to the ranch house,
found the father with his daughter
and obtained his permission to paint
the portrait He stipulated that he
was to have the portrait when it was
finished at whatever, price he should
himself name, provided he wished it.
but it was in no wise obligatory on
him to buy it. These details having
been settled, the artist set up his easel
on the porch and was accorded the
first sitting. Mr. Winston took a book
and read while the artist put the out
line on the canvas.
The portrait grew under the artist's
brush not only a likeness of Miss
Winston, but a speaking likeness.
Sometimes during the sittings Mr.
Winston was present and sometimes
be was absent. When he was present
the painter worked on the girl's dress,
her hands, indeed anything but her
face. When her father was absent
Miss Winston was kept conversing
with her portrayer and on subjects
that called forth such agreeable idio
syncrasies as were in her. These ex
pressions the plainsman transferred to
the canvas. Neither father nor daugh
ter knew anything about art, but they
knew that something was being pro
duced which greatly pleased them.
When It was finished Mr. Winston
said to the artist:
"Now, my friend, 1 confess that you
have painted my daughter just as she
Is, and I want the picture. What
shall 1 pay you for it?"
"It was understood between us that
you were to have it at your own price."
"Supiose we make it a hundred dol
"Whatever you choose to give.-'
The buyer wrote a check for $100
and took the picture. When the artist
had departed Mr. Winston said to his
daughter. "1 suppose a good photo
graph of the largest size would cost
that, and a painting is supposed to be
better than a photograph."
The daughter sighed, but said noth
ing. She was sorry that the sittings
were ended. She had never been so
entertained in her life—that is, when
the plainsman had been working on
her features.
At the opening of the warm season
Mr. Winston took his daughter back
to the east In New York they sent
the portrait to a shop, to be framed.
The proprietor looked at it critically
and ask the name of the artist, since it
was not on the canvas. Mr. Winston
asked him why he wished to know,
and the reply was that it seemed to
fee fine work. This excited the owner's
curiosity and he brought an expert to
look at it.
"It's a Kennard," said the man.
stooping to find the artist's name.
"Kennard Is a queer chap. Sometimes
in a freak he will put a mark on his
portraits. Here it is—that queried K.
in the lower corner."
"And who is Kennard?"
"At present the principal portrait
painter in America, and the second or
third in the world."
"Good gracious!" exclaimed the own
er." and what would you consider a
fair price for the work."
"Oh, you can get anywhere from $3.
000 to $6,000 for it"
"Where is Kennard now?" pursued
the astonished Winston.
"Trying to recover his health in New

Receipts Today Were 379 Cars in All
—5,000 Cattle, 5,700 Hogs, 17,
000 Sheep and 160 Horses.
This week opens out with a very
fair run of cattle, about 215 loads.
The trade opened out rather dull and
the trend of prices was lower dur
ing the session on beef cattle. Sup
plies were fairly liberal, but not ex
cessive, but advices from eastern mar
kets were all more or less bearish
which had a depressing influence on
our market. Bids were generally pret
ty close to a dime lower than last Fri
day and a good share of the offerings
sold on this basis.
Choice to prime beeves, $7.20 to
7.70 fair to good beeves, $6.00 to
6.fi0 common to fair beeves, $5.00 to
There was a continuation of the
weakness that prevailed the latter
part of last week on butcher stock
and it tooK more or less shaded prices
to move the bulk of the offerings.
This was especially treu of the good
grades. Demand was not brisk from
local packers and outside butchers
seemed to be especially bearish so
that salesmen were up against a very
mean trade all morning and prices
were anywhere from nearly steady to
fully a dime lover, the butchers and
canner grades showing less decline
than the good to choice cows and heif
ers. Veals were about steady at last
week's decline and there was a rath
pr easier tone to the market for bulls,
stags, etc.
Good to choice heifers, $5.00 to 6.00
pood to choice cows, $4.50 to 5.25
fair to good grades, $3.75 to 4.50 can
ners and cutters, $2.50 to 3.50 veal
calves, $3.50 to 7.50 bulls, stags, etc.,
$3.50 to 5.50.
There was plenty of demand for
what, stockers and feeders were on
hand this morning and a good strong
market for desirable fleshy grades, and
anything of this kind found ready
sale. On the other hand there was a
lot of very ordinary stock cattle on
sale, for which the demand was of
the most indifferent character and
salesmen were generally compelled to
shade prices considerably in order to
dispose of them.
Choice to prime feeders, $5.75 to
6.25: good to choice feeders. $5.40 to
5.75 fair to good feeders. $4.50' to
5.25: common to fair feeders, $3.50 to
4.50 stock heifers, $3.40 to 4.75.
Bearish advices from Chicago had
a depressing influence on our hog
market this morning and local prices
showed a tendency to weaken, al
though the local supply was anything
but excessive. Some early business
was done, chiefly on shipping account
at figures that ruled generally stead}
but the demand from packers provet
decidedly bearish and bulk had tc
sell at steady to about a nickel lower,
the market closing 5 to 10c lower. The
best heavy hogs on sale brought $6.20,
while anything lacking in weight had
:o move below $6.00, good bacon hogs
selling from $5.90 downward.
Receipts of sheep and lambs were
rather burdensome this morning,
amounting to about $0 loads, and the
market proved very dull from the star
with the trend to values sharply low
er. There was a slow draggy demand
for all kinds of killing stock and the
trading was not only late in opening,
bu: wore along to a tame finish in the
afternoon, prices ruling 15 to 25 cents
Lambs, good to choice, $6.00 to 6.20
fair to god lambs. $5.25 to 6.00 good
to choice, yearlings, $5.00 to 5.35 fair
to good yearlings, $4.65 to 5.00 good
to choice wethers, $4.15 to 4.40 fair
to good wethers, $3.90 to 4.15.

Judicious Selection Will Accomplish
Wonders of Economy During
the Year.
Many women do not give much
thought to the matter of buying stock
ings. Their cost is so little that it
would seem as if one could not save
much, even if she were careful In this
matter. But more can be saved by
judicious selection than is thought,
and 1p the course of a year or so this
saving mounts up.
If suspension garters are worn,
choose the double top, garter-welt
stocking, and then do not fasten the
garter below the garter top. Some
buy the garter top stocking and then
fasten the garter below it, where It
immediately proceeds to tear out.
Stockings without the garter top can
be made strong at this point by run
ning two or three rows of machine
stitching where the garter fastens.

There Is no end to the variety of
form and color assumed by the ever
increasingly popular empire bag. In
its-present stage it Is a thing of beauty
and a joy of the season, though, being
a child of Dame Fashion, it cannot be
a joy forever.
You have no idea how much money
can be centered on the development of
these handsome and thoroughly charm
ing envelopes. Costly gilt ornaments
are seen on many of the more elab
orate ones, some of which are made
eutirely of gold, silver, copper or steel
colored lace. Semi-precious Btones
are used to carry out a flower pat
tern or to highten the effect of con-,
ventional designs. Inside are trap
pings of silver, gold or Ivory, tiny
vanity cases, mirrors, powder puffs,
lip pencils and the like.
Another idea that has caught the
fancy of the woman who counts not
cost, is an empire bag of brocade,
either velvet or satin, to match her
hat or its trimmings. Usually this
hat is one of the small bonnetlike
models edged with bands of fur, such
as moleskin, Persian lamb, chinchilla
or ermine. A band of the fur outlines
the bag and the flap, which buttons
over envelope fashion. Of course, the
plainest of autumn suits would as
sume a smart tone when worn with
such ultra fashionable foibles.
Bags of broadcloth of the same ma
terial as the suit have deep chenille
fringes around the sides and bot
toms, and correspondingly plain
mountings of gun metal, old gold or
frosted silver.
Any odd piece of silk or velvet
picked up on the remnant counter may
he transformed Into a strikingly hand
some empire bag In an afternoon. And
there is a splendid chance for a dis
play ol individuality.
Favorite Dishes.
A woman who enjoys having
friends to lunch or dinner has the
happy faculty of hitting on Just tha
things her guests enjoy eating. For
some years she has made It a point
to jot down the favorite dishes of this
friend or that In a tiny note book in
her desk. When her cousin Molly is
coming to lunch she looks up her
name, and there finds recorded that
the aforesaid Molly is particularly
fond of custard desserts of any kind
clam is her favorite soup, and In
meats she dotes on anything cooked
en casserole. With these hints
spread before her the matter of plan
ning a meal is considerably simpli
Another friend has often said she
never tastes such pies as are served
by her hostess another likes tomatoes
in any form, and still another prefers
fish to meat
The guests little know that they
themselves have at some time given
the hint as to their likings.
