During the p:>.si threv years, accord
ing to the Texas Farm and Ranch,
there have been shipped into Tex:is
from the north something like 500 head
•f registered Bed Tolled cattle. These
rattle have been selected almost en
tirely with a view of their excellence
for beef production; but. as Red Polled
cattle, like Shorthorns, have in many
places, both in England and the »';i4
era portions of the United States and
In some particular herds in the west,
been bred for the dual purpose of beef
and milk and as Texas buyers of im
proved stock have not been entirely in
formed as tfi the different qualities of
these cattle In some instances. Red
Polled cattle have been bought and
brought to Texas whose pedigrees, ii
understood by the buyer, would have
disclosed the fact that they were bred
along dairy lines rather than for beef.
This breed of cattle seems to have giv
en marked (satisfaction in reference to
their capacity for adapting themselves
to the changed conditions necessarily
experienced in coming from the blue
grass pastures and stall fed winter
quarters of the north to the open
ranges of the Lone Star State.
The exhibition of a few of these cat
tle at the state fair last year and a
very creditable exhibit made at the
San Antonio International fair by both
Texan and northern exhibitors have
created, together with the sales of this
class of stock and the advertisements
in the agricultural papers, quite a de
maud for Red Polled cattle, and the ed
itors of Farm and Ranch, in the inter
est of the cattlemen of the state, are
pleased to say that the continued exhi
bition of these cattle will no doubt in
the future be encouraged. In this day
of the claimed creation of so many
new breeds the selection of improve*':
sires should be a matter of careful con
federation and investigation, and. a
caitle are best brought from the north
to Texas during the fall and winter
months, it may not be inopportune at
this time to say that persons contein
plating the purchase of J{ed Polled cat
tie might profitably employ the sun?
mer months in correspondence with
different breeders in the north with
reference to what they have on band,
for what purposes they have been
breeding their cattle and all of the
questions incidental to the purchase of
this class of stock.
Not the least among these questions,
in view of recent experiences with cat
tle above the quarantine line, the ques
tion of Inoculation against Texas fever
is one that should be considered by
new purchasers. Dr. M. Francis of
College Station, Tex., has had a wide
experience in this matter and In his re
cent utterances has expressed his con
viction not only that Inoculation viii
prevent any material loss in Importing
stock, but has said that the propei
method of inoculation when- persons
buy enough cattle to make it worth
while is to have the work done aft i
the cattle come to Texas and at \\.
borne of the owner of them, so that no'
only may the inoculation be condu<
In the immediate presence of the o\
er, but that the care and treatment i
the cattle may be at a place and tii.

In Starting In the Poultry Bnainaaa
It I'-ivn to Muj the Bent.
"I wanted something cheap, and 1
have concluded that 1 got just what I
wanted." That was the remark*of a
gentleman who had been trying in vain
to successfully hatch chickens in a
cheap incubator. The man who made
the remark was a man of wealth and
has made his mark in the business
world, but when it came to investing
in an Incubator he fell into the same
error so many others have fallen into
and bought the kind he could buy
As this gentleman related his experi
ence with his cheap incubator to me I
recalled the many opportunities ama
teur poultry men have to invest in
something cheap. One of the most
tempting of these opportunities is
found when the purchase of an incuba
tor is contemplated. To one who has
studied artificial incubation the impos
sibility of success with an incubator
which extends below a certain point in
cheapness is apparent. An incubator
to do satisfactory work must be con
structed of good material, and the ma
terial must be put together in the best
possible mnnner. If one will stop to
figure out the cost of material and
skilled labor, it will be found that
there is an approximate figure below
which a really good incubator cannot
be sold.
It is not alone in the purchase of an
Incubator that the beginner makes the
mistake.' of letting something cheap iu
fluence his Judgment. Any one who
has had much correspondence with be
ginners who are looking for eggs for
hatching or fowls for breeding knows
how great a figure cheapness cuts with
them. The majority of such persons
would much rather get three sittings
of eggs at $1 per sitting than one sit
ting for $3. and yet, as the more expe
rienced breeder knows, eggs at $1 per
Bitting, when the object desired is
prize winning chicks, prove to be about
the costliest investment that could be
made. If the beginner resolves to buy
a pair, a trio or a pen of breeding birds,
this same tendency to get something
cheap shows itself. I remember in
particular one letter 1 received the
writer of which had evidently taken a
copy of The Standard and, with that
before him. had written out a descrip
tion of a pair of birds which, had it
been followed, would have scored 96
points each at least, and then for a
closing paragraph he said: "I do not
want exhibition birds; simply good
breeders, and I cannot afford to pay
over $2 each for them." I could have
filled that man's order, but the pail* of
birds would have cost him $30. I
broke this to him as gentlj' as possible,
but I never beard from him again. He
doubtless found some one who sent
him a pair of birds worth just about as
much as he wished to pay, and he ei
ther became disgusted because they
did not produce winners for him or
else, possessing the spirit and grit of
the true fancier, he tacked about on a
different course, paid fair prices for
some good birds and finally attained
success in the showroom.
While cheap incubators, eggs and
fowls prove to be dear in the end, there
Is another investment which every
breeder is railed upon to make and in
which cheapness also proves costly to
the Investor. This is in the purchase
of feed. Good, sound, wholesome grain
is Car cheaper in the end when the pre
vailing prices are paid than damaged
grain at one-third the regular price. In
the vicinity in which I live great quan
tities of wheat and corn are annually
damaged by lire or water, and a num
ber of men are engaged in the Business
of drying or sorting the damaged grain
Into different grades and then offering
it Cor sale. I have seen wheat sold to
poultry men that had been so badly
charred that it was but little better
than charcoal. Corn after having been
for days in the bottom of the harbor is
raised, partially dried and then offered
for sale and sold, too, after It lias turn
ed black from heating. Most of this
damaged grain goes to feed the fowls
of men who think they are getting a
cheap ration, and they congratulate
themselves on the imagined saving ef
Cheap equipment also proves to be
costly in the end. Buildings should be
well constructed, and good material
should always be used, although there
Is no necessity for adding to the cost
by ornamentation.—Henry L. Allen in
Keep Them Quiet.
The Fanners and Planters' Guide
says: While fattening young geese
they should be kept as quiet as possi
ble. No excitement whatever should
disturb them. When feeding, approach
them quietly and do not irritate them
In the least, or they will not fatten,
but will "throw out" or grow another
crop of feathers.

The End of the World in 1914.
A famous scientist predicts that the
world will come to an end in 1914, bas
ing his calculations on the revelations of
the bible. If thin is so, it is well for us
to get what pleasure we can out of the
few years that remain for us to live. One
of the surest ways to enjoy life is the
possession of good health, and a well
regulated stomach. Hostetter'sStomach
Bitters will enable anyone to obtain thia.
It is the greatest medicine for the cure
of ills that arise from a bad stomach. It
cures dyspepsia.^constipation, fever and
ague, malaria, rheumatism and insom
nia. No other medicine can show a
record equal to Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters, the standard medicine of the
American people for over fifty years.
