The More ProNfnhlo Stock to Hrccd
a ml Rear,
This is undoubtedly tItc large
farm, the carriage, the express and
dray horse, particularly the latter,
as our towns and cities arc in great
want of them, and tlio supply is
not near equal to the demand, nor
j will it. bo for many years to
come. The average profit in rear
ing Ibis special class of horses is
much greater and much more su’iv
! Ido than on any other in the pres
lent time. One reason of this is,
| that the colts arc large and strong
I enough to be pat to work on the
' farm at two or two and a half years
old, and can then earn till or, per
haps more than their cost to five
years old when they become suf

boo each, according to power,
style, action, and quality.
Next in average profit is the ex
press horse of geod size and fine
action. After these we may name

| of extra size, hut as it requires
! more costly stallions to get suita
i tde colts, and as they cannot ho
I safely worked upon the farm till
three years old or past, they are
not so cheaply reared as the dray
horse. Then comes the added
trouble In matching them, and the
extra expense of training and pre
paring tor market. Matching may
tie more easily and cheaply and
perfectly done if the farmers of a
large district would unite in Keep
ing mares of the same color, size
and action, and breed them to a
single stallion of the same color.
He of course should he a large
] well-bred trotter, or very stout
I complete thoroughbred, perfectly
sound, and superior in every re
spect, except in speed; and for this
last quality a third, or even fourth*
rate stallion would bo more prop
er than faster ones; for horses got
by those would most likely devel
op a natural gait in harness of sev
en to nine miles per hour over a
moderately level road, and easily
keep this up for hours. This is us
fast as gentlemen ever want their
horses to travel double in harness,
! and especially when ladies and
j children are in the carriage.
| The farmers throughout the
j country are universally complain
ing that there is little or no protit
jin the production of grain, vegeta
bles and grass, that ordinary horses
I cattle, swine and sheep—except of
j the superior mutton breeds o! the
I latter—do not pay for rearing.
: Now lot them give proper utten
j teution to breeding and rearing
horse stock as recommended
(above, and they may then con
sume much more ot their grass}
hay and grain at homo, and realize
a considerably increased profit in
their business. llv this course
they make abundance of manure
from their stock, which enables
(them to keep np the fertility of
l the soil instead of impoverishing
it by selling off their grain, grass
, and vegetables.—Cor. Wallace’s
Profit of (food Stock.
There is not only economy but
downright profit in raising good
stock instead of poor. It costs as
a.utli, possibly more, to raise
mean cattle as it does the best,
laud the outcome is aiibstuntiury
; different so far as the fanner’s pock
et is eoneei lied.
An example of this may be seen
j by fain paring England and France
in this regard. France slaughter s
about four in Dions of beef cattle
; cattle annually, the average weight
' of which is only about 200 pounds.
In F.iglrrml about two millions are
| annually slaughtered, but averag
■ ing oOO pounds each. Thus, while
J France mpiires four million of eat
lie to produce her 8,0'.K> OOtl c»vt of

Hints to Prevent Fires,

the best quality of oil.
Never make a sudden motion
with a lamp, either in lifting or

Never put a lamp on the edge

' the light at a distance.
Use candles when possible in go

rooms. Those aro cheaper and
cant explode and for many pur
poses arc just as good as lamps.

Never let a match go out of

Have your iurmv*en cioiniou out

Never leave any wood near a

holes for coals to drop.
Never put any hot ashes or

lucrative business for certain talen
ted persons in Washington.
Speeches are not urriy written to
order, but are kept on hand, ready

consideration. When the same
man furnishes speeches to two men
on opposite sides of the same ques
tion, the debate becomes thrilling.
It was one of these good little
boys from a Suuday school near
Boston who gave this interpreta
tion to a verse taught by his teaeli
er: “Behold a greater than Solo
mon is here!’’ “Hold a grater to
Solomon’s ear!’’ When at a loss to
give the answer “Cain” to a ques
tion relative to that individual, the
teacher, to jog his memory, asked:
•'What does a man walk with?’’
Quick as a flash came the reply,
“a woman.”—Boston Journal.
