SHORT HORNS THE MOST DESIRABLE BREED OF CATTLE. of iu The chief object for which cattle are kept, is the production of beef and milk, and the most valuable breou is tnat wnicn will render the best results for the attention and food given them. While there are sev eral meritorious breedB for beef or milk alone, there are none that combine the two qualities so well as the Short Horns; and for sizo, compactness of frame, symmetry of form, rapid growth, early maturity, and ail imposing appearance, are not equaled by any other breed, and on acconnt of these merits, nave tiiey justly acquired a popu larity as great beef producers not equaled by all tna otlier breeds put ogeiuer. It was about a century ago that two brothers, Charles and Robert Oolliiigs, began their career as breeders aud to thein may be credited, through their intelligence, sagacity and enterprise, the honor of bring ing to the front this noble race of cattle. They were the first to select fine specimens and feed them for exhibition. Having pre Dared the two animals known as the Dur ham Ox and tho White Heifer that traveled they were exhibited through nearly all the counties of England and portions of Scot- laud. The exhibition of these specimens by their grand proportions awakened public attention, and tho value of the breed for crossing upon other cattle by improving chem ou account of their concentrated ouritv of blood, became known, aud the lemaud for Short Horns was no longer ontined to the locality where they were ji-Ht known, tne valley of tne river iees. mo extended 10 every country, wnere a ugh order of agriculture prevails. And low no one in tne business 01 raising cauie 1 afford to ignore their use. As an evidence, we know how common it with us for the graxicr or feeder to seek -it, the grade Short liorus, nnd will pay roui one 11a, t ,0 a uonar per 100 pouuun uore toa.i lie wilt lor me native ciuue, aim b, sides they will weigh from 2110 to Mi) jounds more at two years old. 1 ho buyers or our city daries will pay from you to ipio r head for fresti cows possessing goo.t cf qualities, while many. of our native or rub cows would not bring half so much. Vnd for the export trade, scarcely any r.ido but Short Horns are taken. In our system of miscellaneous agriculture, we cannot nllor.l to ra-si cattle unit are only suitable tor one purpose, but to have them profitable to tne ordinary larnier liio cow nu-t possess tncquaiiiy neb.des raising uer alf. ot supplying the family with milk and butler, and when by accident or from any ithcr cause c uses to be profitable as a UKiUcr, can be turneu over 10 mu uuicou. it a profit, and g ve him again 111 return. by her broad thick low, and heavy quarters, "renter amount 01 prune oeei, nam ne mid obtain from a native with a circus.-, of the Kime weight. For these reasons it is not difficult to see that judicious crossing with animals of this superior race would result in adding greatly to the value of our common cattle, and if it bo true that our native cattle, by tho proper crossing witli thoroughbred sires can be improved in value a fourth or one-half, is it not strange that a people so generally intelligent, and fond of making money as our iiiguianu County people are, do not act upon it until every trace of scrub stock is wiped out. It may be that w will, for the farmers of Highland Uounty nave not ail entirely un regarded their interests in this direction, but have made great advancement aud the value of their stock has been greatly in creased. Iu fact evidence of the diffusion of this blood may be Been to some extent on alyiost every farm in the county, still we are aware that of the 'ii), 000 cattlo iu the county tho pereantuga of hiyh grade ani. mats is not what it should bo. It is now nearly fifty years since a com pany of spirited gentlemen, with adequate meauB, was formed in Southern Ohio, mostly residing in Highland, Ross, Pick way and Franklin counties, to import cattle from Great Britian. Their agent, after examining all the different improved breed of that county, made the entire selection pure bred Short Horns. It is now, I be lieve, ponoeded by all, that no better impor tation wan Pier rnadeiuto tha United States. Such renowned bi(!eiers as yhituker, Law on. Palev. Temnest, Earl hienc und T 0. Bale, were represented by individuals this importation. Through the liberality of a few enter prising agriculturists among us at that early day, several of these imported ani mals were purchased and brought into thia county, I may maution Young Waterloo, the cost of l,Vtfil, bred by T. 0. Bates, Greenholm Experiment, at the cost 91,1511, brad by Wuitokor, Uuielwood, at tha coi of $700, and bred by Palev; tbe cows, Gaudy at 1810, Pink at t"75, Fidelia at f filO, and Matilda at tl.'220. The impetus given the improvement of our cattle by this grand acquisition, cannot be to highly esteemed. By placing the splendid forms of these animals before the eyes of tha farmer, they were put in pro session of correct models of exeellonco, and although the enterprise has not resulted in making all tho cattle of the county perfect yet tho results have been of groat profit. The interest then excited, has continued with different degrees of animation. Many other valuable animals have been brought into the county from the best herds of Ken tucky and elsewhere, and to-day we can count representatives tracing through fe male line to the imported cows from winch have sprung many of the most highly prized and fashionable families of short Horns in America. Wohave descendants of the beautiful Lady Maynard, bought of Mr. Maynard by Charles Collings in 17Hti, she being the dam of Phoenix, who was the dam of favorite, and tho grand dam of Count, a fourdative possessing all of tuo excellence of the blood of the Collings breeding. We have in the- county, decendants of Rose of Sharon, by Belvidere, a family that porhaps has gained greater notoriety since tho imported cow was brought to America, than any othor family, several indivuala of this breeding haviug beeu purchased and taken to iMiginnu. Imported Mazurka by llerbenger, dis- cribed by a competent judge as one of the most perfoct cows ever in America, has at least one representative as the person of Maznkas, lied Rose Duke, out of Ma.uka 3oth by l'Jth Duke of Airdrie. Imported Bloom, by tsir lj. onunl, import ed by Col. Morris, of New Yolk, whos" descendants by being cros.-d with the fashionable. Batf'S Cr-.'S have g oncd a position among breeders that advocate- the superiorly of the BateH had one r.-pi'.-s. uta tive in the bull Blooms lluke, by Biron Bates the Kill.

Mid- blesboro Granny by llri.e.gri.ioui, Youni; Eniniii by Sailor, CLarlutta, by Alderman, Harriet by Young Waterloo. U-'d Princess, by King of Trumps, Young Mary by Jupiter, Ruby by Sir Young Dimple, Daisy by Wild. All tho foundation of worthy families of this most uoMd race of cattle, represents, tives of which the Agriculturists of our county should be proud that they possess, knowing that it is by the unpressivo lntlu- enco of the few thoroughbreds brought among us, by a few bold, thoughtful farm er, that excellence possessed bv the cattle of Highland is to be attributed. Andnowthe duty before is to secure what has been gain ed, and it can only be dono by grading to a higher standard toward perfection. This can be best done by tho use of thorough bred sires, because in all truly thorough bred animals their good qualities are con centrated, their blood is of one kind and consequently has the advantage, over an animal bred with no fixed typo or character. Ihe rules governing tho registry of Short Horns, which rogistry chuses them as thor oughbred, are different in regard to the standard set up, making a pedigree eligible to record. Iu the beginning of the English Herd Book all animals that were consid ered Short Horns were rocorded, some without any pedigree only their names giv en. And now when a bull has five acknowl edged Short Horns crossed and a cow four, they are eligible to record. The American Herd Book published by Mr. Allen is gov erned by the rule, that if they trace to ani mals already recorded in his Herd Book, or to imported animals they are deemed eligi ble for a record. The American Short Horn Record pub lished in Kentucky, requires that pedigree of an animal shall trace through all its crosses to imported animals. The Uino and Canadian .Records, are 1 believe a little more lenient, but generally require that an animal shall trace to impor ted ancestry. Hence the term "thoroughbred" as defined by the different rules govorning the regis try of Short Horn cattle is indefinite in value. Tho ouly sensible idea that I would have you accept, as to what a thorough brod animal should bo, I will give in the language of an eminent breeder. "The thoroughbred animal that has been thoroughly bred that is to Bay that you have bred him so long to the desire 1 typo, that you have established uniformity of ex cellence and he will perpetuate it, and when you have an animal whose breeding is tip to that point he is entitled to rank as a thoroughbred, whether ho traces to the otlier side of the waters or not." From this I would not have you infer that there is nothing iu having the Herd Books, for indeed it is to them that we have to go to find tbe character of fluid-ceding of all the moat noted Short Horns. If I was buying nu animal for breeding purposes, I would bo very careful to know that It had a written pedigree, nnd Know that it was recorded in tho Herd Books, and if I could not tell by looking at the fact of it, the character of its elements, I wouh; want to analyze it. which could only hi done through the records. All pedigrees admitted to tho Herd Book Record, have not the same value. It is from tho breeding of animals pos sessmg the concentrated blood of the lnosi perfect ancestors, that we are to expect Uk best results toward improvement. Now they speak of Crude Petroleum as a reuie.lv lor consumption; hotter not try it but take Dr. Bull's C nigh Syrup, the standard Cough Remedy of our age. It is agreeable to the taste, never fails to cur. and costs ouly 2 cents a bottlo. MR. WM. I. MARSHALL'S ILLUSTRATED LECTURES.
