Whole Flock Killed. .
A whole flock of 192 sheep belonging
to Albert C. Behling, near Albion, Mich.,
were destroyed by dogs recently. The
sheep were in a small fenced held and
the dogs, after stampeding them, run
them around and around the field until
one after another dropped dead from ex
haustion. The appraisers awarded a to
ut or tO 18 for the flock. Mr. Behling
had just received the sheep from Okla
homa the day before they were killed.
Tne happiest man in the world is the
poor fellow who earns just enough mon
ey to pay his debts. Such a man is pos
sessed of the happiness which causes
him to whistle and sing as he goes about
his work, and when he meets you on the
street a pleasant smile, speaking louder
than words, convinces you of bis sincer
ity. The rich man, with a mortgage on
every other house in town and with a
bank account, may be happy, but his
happiness is not of the heart; neither
does it manifest itself as does the true
happiness that radiates from the coun
tenance of an honest working man.

grits and poultry supplies. D. B. Mc
Uncle 5am As a Horse Trader.
Unsle Sam, who does nothing by halves
has recently gone into the horse business
on an extensive scale. At Front Royal,
in the blaegrass part of Virginia, he has
started what ia probably the largest
horse farm ia the woild a farm of
5,500 acres, located only a few hours
ride from the nation's capital. He in
tends this to be obly one of a series of
such farms, and to turn out thorough
breds by the tens of thousands. This
farm is already supplying practically
the entire United States with cavalry
mounts, and Capt. X H., Conrad expecu
to make the government farms the sup
ply depots for the army mounts of most
of the civilised nations of the world.
To stock this farm August Belmont
made Uncle Sam a gift ofhis six best
staliWs, known the racing world over.
The six of them, when two years old.
cost Belmont f 100,000. When Johnson
Camden, millionaire horseman of Ken
tucky, heard of this gift he added to it
two of his famous stallions, Boola-Boola
and Wheelwright, worth about 125,500.
With these eight the farm was started.
The government has now more than
Uncle Sam's scheme for securing
mounts out of these stallions is unique.
He takes all the farmers of his country
into partnership. Hit fine stallions are
being taken all over the country, wher
ever there are farmers witn mares, it
used to be that Belmont's and Camden's
stallions could be had only by the very
rich, Henry of Navarre, for instance, got
$1,200 for a service. Today the breeding
is free, provided only that the mare be
of good breeding herself and free from
blemish, the Interest being 'to put the
commonplace horse out of existence and
replace him with a raoe of noble stock.
All that is required is that the farmer
shall agree to sell the colt to Uncle Sam
when it is two years old for $300. If,
however, a man prefers to keep his colt,
be must pay a service fee of not more
than 123. If the colt has single blem.
Uh, he may keep it and pay, no fee at
all. Twice a year from now on, or every
spring and fall, these stalliins will be
shipped about the country. A letter to
the War Department will bring one
within easy reach of any farmer who
will live up to the light conditions.
A man that's clean inside and out;
wno neitner looks up to tne ricn nor
down to the poor; who can lose without
squealing and who can win without
bragging; who is considerate of women,
children and old people; who is too brave
to lie, too generous to cheat, and who
takes his share of the world and lets
other people have theirs New York
