In a case recently decided in the
United States supreme court it was
held that the owners of stock infected
with Texas fever can be held liable for
damages by those to whose stock the
disease is conveyed,
The stock yards at East St. Louis
psre not seriously damaged la the
cyclone. The most damage was done
in the horse and mule market, but no
Uvea were lost, and a few days work
will put the buildings in their normal
condition again.
Mcintosh & Peters, in their letter to
stockmen, says: "Receipts of both cat
tie and hogs continue heavy, with
21,000 cattle and over 47,000 hogs re
ceived at Kansas City the first four
days of this week; and while we note
but little chaoge in the prices of the
good light or hardy weight cattle, the
heavy or coarse cattle are still dull,
Trlthbut little competition on them,
and just at present the prospects for
higher prices are not encouraging,
especially should these receipts con
tinue, We have had good orders for
Legs, and though receipts have been
heavy again this week, showing a
dally average of nearly 12,000 head,
prists have changed but little." This
firm Is enjoying splendid patronage.
One of the Advocate office men took
a day off recently and spent a portion of
the Una in Kansas City. Never hav
lr. j bssn over to the stock yards, he
thought he would. take a hurried look
ever tlzn. When he reached the Ex-
'ctriU could not help visltinj tha
offices of Ben L.Welch & Co. .Mr.
Welch who, by the way, fully justified
our previous impression that he was a
thorough stockman and what a po
litician would call a "mixer," was
immersed in business. This did not
prevent him from taking a few min
utes time in which to make the writer
feel thoroughly at home. He strikes
us as a man with an unusual capacity
for business and the ability to handle
it In a careful, methodical and ener
getic way. His office force and corps
of assistants aro of the eame type.
This firm believes in keeping the pub
lic impressed with the fact that it is
still doing business In the same old
satisfactory way, and in order to do
this employs every reasonable, legiti
mate means of reaching shippers. The
results are well shown by the fact that
at the time of the Advocate man's
visit his stenographer was swamped
with correspondence. No man on
earth enjoys noting the prosperity of
a business house more than the news
paper man whose columns are used to
help make it so. Ben L. Welch & Co.
merit unlimited success, as is fully
shown by the very satisfactory business
which is being handled.
Hairing Bones.
Although the conditions are exacting,
the best market for our horses today is
across the ocean. The buyers from Eng
land have had a taste, and want mere.
They are taking more and more every
month, and there is no limit to the
number of good horses of the right sort
they will buy. They are ready to pay
for style, shape, quality and action.
This country raked fewer colts within
the last few years than ever before.
This will help horse raisers and their
prices to a certain extent Then con
eider what a vast number die yearly.
All these must be replaced, for there
were mure horses in use the past year in
this land than ever in any previous year.
The blanketing of a horse may be but
a small matter, but this has saved much
suffering and loss. Horses are altogether
too expensive animals to be exposed to
serious injury which might be prevented
by such slight trouble and expense.
There should be enough of the humane
in us to compel us to provide such
protection cheerfully.
It has been said that the plow, the
coach and the cart are the chief mecham
cal devices used in the work of State
building. It is the heavy labor of the
draft horse which developed the territory
of the savage into the state of a civilized
man, which builds the city, and moves
its commerce.
Though the horseless wagon may be
a certainty in the future, this country
will have to spend a good deal in making
good roads before this carriage can come
into central use. Wealthy people who
now buy our best horses, will not want
to give up their pcs;:::!cn, for thsra to a

real pleasure in driving a spirited animal
which can never be found in guiding a
machine along the road.
If you have a good running mare, or
one which is a good trotter, or a mare of
good size and elegant form and style,
and want to improve upon any of these
qualities, do not hesitate at the expense
and trouble in finding a horse which will
make an improvement in just the
direotion desired. Do not attempt to
contradict the laws of nature by violent,
unnatural crosses. Wisconsin Agricul

The Best Way to Get There Is Over the
Santa Fe Route.
The fabulously rich gold mining dis
trict of Cripple Creek, Colorado, la at
tracting hundreds of people. By spring
the rush bids fair to be enormous.
That there is an abundance of gold
there is demonstrated beyond doubt.
Fortunes are being rapidly made.
To reach Cripple Creek, take the
Santa Fe Route, the only standard
gauge line direct to the camp. Through
Pullman sleepers and chair cars. The
Santa Fe lands you right in the heart
of Cripple Creek.
For routes, rates, sleeper reserva
tions, etc., call at depot-foot of Fifth
