A few years, ago Texas cattle were a class as distinct as any reaching the Chicago market. They were distin guished by their long horns and legs, their thin flesh, narrow bodies, and large deep brands. To-day the notice able long-horned Texan is rarely seen in the Chicago market. At the present time many Texas cattle have such a high percentage of the blood of the improved beef breeds that such of them as are not of a polled breed, or dehorned, possess horns of short or of medium length thus they attract but little attention and receive much less adver.se criticism than formerly when they were the butt of ridicule. They now frequently have the low-tlown, blocky form, too, Which, indicates that they have descended from -the best strains of beef-producing ancestry. They are often as well bred and of as heavy weights as native steers. The proportion of well-bred stock cattle in Texas is rapidly increasing. The term "Texas cattle" is, there fore, no longer necessarily indicative of an inferior grade of fat cattle, while it is still true that there is an exceed ingly wide range between the best and poorest. The range in quality, condi tion and price is greater, perhaps, than in any other class of cattle reach ing the market, the best occasionally showing the quality and finish of tiur native steers and selling for prices but little, if any, below the prices quoted for prime native steers. In such instances they are, of course, used for the same purposes, except that they are seldom exported. Some Texas cattle have been exported from Galveston, largely, however, to Cuba. The lower grades of Texans go for c^inners.—Herbert W. Mumford. The Teeth of Sheep. Under ordinary conditions it.is safe to take the teeth as a sure indication of a sheep's age, says Edward Van Alstyne in Rural New Yorker. Of course with some breeds or individu als that mature early there might be a little variation. The following are the accepted rules and may be found useful in determining the age of a sheep: At one month there are eight tem porary front teeth or incisors (always in the lower jaw) and three temporary molars on each side of each jaw. At three months there will be added a permanent molar to the three tem porary ones. At nine months there will appear the second permanent mo lar. At from twelve to fourteen months the first pair of permanent incisors or front teeth, appear. At eighteen months there will be the third permanent molar. At from twen ty-one to twenty-two months there will be four permanent incisors. At twen ty-seven months the temporary molars drop out, and permanent ones take their place. At thirty months there will be the six permanent incisors. At from three years and four to six months all the eight permanent inci sors have appeared and the sheep may be said to have a full mouth. After this it is not so easy to tell, but if the teeth are even and the mouth full one may take it to be between fourJ and five years. From this time on the gen eral condition of the sheep and the good or bad state of the teeth will in dicate whether the sheep can be prof itably kept or not. Supp'ly of Army Horses. An English army officer, Major -Moo??, in the course of a lecture on the supply of horses for military pur poses, at the Royal United Service In stitution. estimated the equine popu lation of the world at about 80,000,000, half of which belong to Europe," and the major portion "of the remainder to America. Russia, he said, was the greatest, liorse country, possessing 23,000.000 animals, which made her independent oi outside sources, in no country was greater attention giv en to -breeding, and exporting was closely guarded. It was curious, he said, bow little was heard of the work of horses in the Far Eastern war, con sidering Russia's enormous supplies. It was ij( stated where Japan, who is short of remounts, got her horses, but she had made great efforts to re pair her deficiencies with stud farms and prizes to breeders. The best field of supply in the world was America, and in most countries government aid was given or breeding* farms were maintained. The British Empire was lacking in numbers, although the United Kingdom possessed the best types in the world. The Colonies were deficient in numbers and quality, and close attention was needed for the subject, in order to have adequate supplies in time of war from our pos sessions as a first line. The plan of Continental studs was supported by many, but the British farmer could give points to the Continent in the jr.alter of breeding. Whitewash in„ the Hog House. Whitewash is cheap, and there is no reason why it, should not, be used more than it is in the hog house. Whether the boards that compose the hog house are smooth or rough, the white wash will be found to be a help. It will stop up the hiding places or ver min and will tend to give a sweater smell to the places where the liogs stay. In addition It adds light ks does any light color placed on the walls. It shows the dirt more plainly than the unpainted boards and acts as a re minder to the owner to clean out the \og pen often. MlSCEtlANZ Foundation of the Export Steer. In the first place, it must be re membered that to produce a carcass of beef of the best quality, a steer must possess a large proportion of the blood of some recognized beef breed. Steers possessing considerable dairy blood may give rapid and economical gains, but the carcass of beef from such a steer does not carry so large a pro portion of valuable meat as that of the strictly beef animal. This point has been demonstrated in many experi ments. The dairy-bred steer has a tendency to form a large amount of fat that is not edible, whereas those portions of the body which carry the most valuable meat are poorly devel oped and lacking in covering of flesh. While it is impossible to say exact ly how the animal will feed simply from inspecting it, at the same time, there are certain features which are peculiar to the animal which will make rapid and economical gain in weight, and which possesses the con stitution to stand heavy feeding. A good type of steer should possess a deep body, broad back, short neck, moderately fine bone, thick, fine coat of hair, and a somewhat thick but mel low skin, which moves freely under the hand over the underlying tissues. Wheh the hand is laid flat upon the ribs of the animal and pressed against them, a mellowness and elasticity should be noticeable, which indicate a ready fattener and a good quality oi flesh. The animal which has a thin, wiry coat of hair, and which feels hard and unyielding when the hand is laid on the rib, is seldom a quick feeder, and does not possess the thickness ol flesh which is desirable in a beef ani mal. Of course, we do not expect that a thin steer will handle like a fat steer, but, in handling a thick-fleslied animal, that mellowness of handling, previously mentioned, is noticeable, though the animal may be compara tively thin. It is desirable to have good depth and thickness at the heart in order to indicate constitution but there should be proportionate development towards the rear of the animal where the meat is more .valuable. Viewed from the side, the steer should present a well balanced appearance, that is to say, he should not show an undue develop ment of forequarter in proportion to hindquarter, because the forequarter is of less value than the hindquarter. Beware of the steer with extremely heavy shoulders, and coarse, "oxy looking" head and horns. A full, bright eye and wide muzzle are also indications of breeding qualities.— Prof. G. E. Day. Admirers of Fine Stock. One of the very first things which impresses the visitor to Great Britain is a strong love of good animals, which to all appearances is one of the hered|regularity itary traits of the native Briton. Go where you will, the same thing exists. From the very humblest laborer to his gracious majesty the king, there showi^ a strong love for real high class stock. In a recent visit to the home of a famous Scottish Shorthorn breeder, whose name is familiar to lovers of good stock in all parts ol the world, the writer was somewhat astonished to learn that the gentle man in question was also one of the most prominent business men of the town. Upon questioning my most worthy host as to how he managed to divide his time between his city busi ness and his stock farms, he replied: "I am in my city offices only when I 'am compelled to be there, as that line of work is very monotonous. But with my stock farms it is very differ ent. I love to be there all day and to dream of being there by night." These are the words of one of the very greatest of present-day stockbreeders, and are very significant, as a love for any line of work is the very first essential to success.—W. J. Kennedy When to Begin Pasturing.! It has been my practice to use pas tyre as nearly the year round as pos sible. I only "lot" my stock when the ground is very soft. The time stock should be left to subsist on pas ture alone depends on the season. 1 had some cattle on pasture alone from May 1st to December 9th last year with very satisfactory results. I sold them for butcher stock at the highest market price at the latter date. Newly set grass should not be used this way only old sod. The acreage may be extended in the fall by opening up Lhe meadow in August, and the stalk field in November. After that is cleaned up hay may be fed on the ground, providing the ground is dry or froze hard.—S. H. Rogers, Montgomery Co., 111. Mr. Rogers was more fortunate am. favored than most farmers in beir.ir able to use his pasture during such long season with the exceptionally profitable results noted.— (Editor.) Egyptian Butter.

Vv^S. PUT KINK IN TH5 ASHMAN. Young Wife With Dignity Tried to Conceal Her Ignorance. Computer's young bride knew little about housekeeping, consequently she was afraid of her butcher, baker and candlestick maker, for she was sure they knew just how ignorant she was of household matters. She only or dered such things as she was absolute ly sure of, and always ended her inter views with the tradespeople as soon as possible. She was going along with few blunders and was priding herself that she had learned a great deal in one week's experience, when the col lector of ashes made his customary visit to the street, yelling, "Ash-ees! Ash-ees!" As he came nearer she be came more and^ more perplexed, and she Kept asking herself, "What is he saying?" At last he came to her back door and inquired in a husky, guttural, "Ash-ees?" She looked at him hesitatingly for a minute, and then, drawing herself up to a dignified attitude, said, coldly "No, I don't think I care for any to day."—New York Press. A New Theory of Sleep. An interesting and novel theory of sleep has recently been put forward by Dr. Clararede, a French scientist, who Iiolds that sleep is a positive function or an instinct designed to arrest func tioning. Dr. Clararede makes the as sertion that we sleep not because we are intoxicated or exhausted, but in order to avoid such conditions. Not only are there various kinds and de grees of sleep, but it does not always follow exhaustion. Furthermore, it is well known that sleep is not propor tional to the degree of exhaustion and it may be either total or partial. In measuring the profoundness of sleep various conditions are encoun tered which are not susceptible of ex planation on the toxic theory, but which agree perfectly with the hy pothesis that it is a positive nervous function. The definition of sleep, ac cording to this new theory, is a reac tion produced by various excitants, and is an inhibition which manifests itself subjectively by a lack of interest in exterior things.—Harper's Weekly.

The important thing is to get rid of the diseased condition of tlio blood that causes the attack by the use of a remedy that will do the work quickly and thoroughly. What is that remedy The experience of Miss Ellen McKenna fur nishes the answer. She says For more than seven years I was a great sufferer from nervous headache and dizziness. My stomach was disordered, and I became so restless that I could not sit still any length of time. Dizziness interrupted my work greatly. At first the attacks were not so severe, but they gradxially grew more violent, and finally became so acute that I was on the point of relinquishing my membership in the different organizations to which I be longed." "What saved yon from that necessity?" "A very simple thing the call of a member of one of the clubs,who strongly advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills before giving up. I acted on her sugges tion at once, and after steadily using this great blood and nerve remedy for two months, my headaches and my dizzi uess entirely disappeared. Miss McEenna is secretary of the Associated Ladies' Guild, and resides at No. 48 Waitstreet, Roxbury, Mass. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured many hundreds of similar cases, and can be confidently recommended to drive all poisons from the blood and to give needed strength to the nerves.

At one time it is all in the top of the head, at another it is all at the base of the skull. Most lieadachcs can be traced to some faulty state of the blood. When the blood is scanty or charged with poison, and the nerves are imperfectly nourished and the digestion weak, one of the com monest results is frequent and severe headaches.
