He feared that some mav lerick hunier would lake her and drive her away with a still stranger herd— that some bail ugly range steer might gore her witli his wide spreading horns or that wild beasts of prey might kill her ami devour her. For weeks and weeks ho thought of hi* little "Nellie" and of what might be her cruel fate. Time rolled on, sum mer came, the grass wilted in the hot sun and lire dowers tiegau to fade; then came mountain trusts and cattle men begun to collect their beef cuttle for market. In one of these herd. the little boys calf was driven to town, She mid grown to lie a good size iiei fer. The little hoy and the calf met; there was a mutual recognition. He run to her and put an arm around her neck and stroked her face lovingly with his hand; stie gently rubbed her head against his body and said in her plain calf talk; "My little master I ve not forgotten you, in my wander ings iu strange herds and among strangers of my kind: you've beer kind to me; I love you and some day will repuv you for all your kindness."

Five or even ten dollars is no consideration when you are buying a stove, for the differ ence in the fuel bill or poor baking for three months will make the difference to you. Garland Stoves e are no experience in Blackfoot and Vicinity but 50 people will speak well of them. If you want to know who uses them I can give you 50 references in and around Blackfoot. But if you must have a CHEAP STOVE I also have a few of them which I sell cheaper than anyone.
