Wallace's Monthly tells of probably the on
ly caso oujrecordof the successful amputation
of a breeding mare's leg. The operation was
performed at the Avondale Stock farm, Avon-

The mare was heavy with foal when she
broke her leg. After Betting the limb, it was
ecided that to save her life it would be ne
cessary to amputate the leg at the knee.
This Professor Huidekoper successfully did
and now the mare and her live-months-old

Your little story about Judce Randall
White's purchase of Charley Ford, Jerry Mon
roe's old racer, reminds me of a little Incident
that occurcd the other day, in which the three
mentioned were interested," said a Iriend ot
mine yesterday. "Jerry has figured for so
many years as a dive-keeper, an owner of
game-cocks and a natron of the dog-pit that
public opinion of the old man has given him
a hard name and a desperately immoral char-
actor. He may have been brutal in his tastes,
aud hardened through contact with the de
praved inmates of the notorious resort of
which be waa proprietor, but Jerry had one
soft spot In his flinty old heart, and that was
for the aged white horse he sold the other day
to Judge White. Wben old Charley was in
his prime, Jerry was offered $17,000 for him,
bnt refused it, and remarked at the time that
he did not think money could buy him. Back
in the rear of hla State street Jive, just off
from the room in which were caged some of
the best bred game chickens in the country,
Monroe had provided a big box stall, warm
as toast, and the floor of which was always
covered with several inchea of clean yellow
straw. Here the old horse had the best of
everything, Jerry never being without a lump
of sugar for him when he went to the stall.
Upon the evening of the day when he sold
the horse to Judge White, Jerry went into the
little saloon at the corner of Twenty-fifth and
State streets, and resting his head upon his
hands at the little table which stood behind a
pile of boxes in the corner, cried like a wo
man, the tears running down his hardened
face until it was wet with a moisture it had
not known for years. The other afternoon
Judge White took the horse from bis stable
and drove to his house on Wabash avenue, be
yond Twenty-fifth street, where he hitched
him and entered the house. The day wrs
chilly, and the old horse shivered a bit in the
cold wind as Jerry happened to pass. A look
of almost tenderness came over the old dive
keeper's face, and tbis deep -ned as the aged
trotter wblnued when he felt his former mas
ter's band upon his neck. Jerry glanced at
the house, and when the Judge himself ap
peared at the door in answer to Jerry's ring,
said: 'Excuse me, Judge, but the old horse
is out there uncovered. He ain't used to It,
Judge, and he's gettin' old, like. I know he's
your horse now, but say, Judge, I'd rather
take off my overcoat and cover the old fellow
with it than see him shiver another minute.'
The big-hearted Judge smiled, and going Into
the house came out with a wool blanket,
which he threw over the old racer's back.
'Thank'ee Judge,' said Jerry, 'I didn't want
tor Interfere nor nothin', but old Charley was
ray pet, and I'd go hungry to-day to give him
a square meal.' You see," concluded my
friend, "It Is a stony heart, indeed, that haa
not one tender spot for something or some
body." Chicago Journal.
I havejuo doubt the above is true, for I re
member wben Charley Fordwaa here being
treated at Dr. Shcppard's Infirmary, Jerry
came down to see him a number of times and
he always had sugar or apples for him.
