The Fine Percheron Stallion. AN UNBELIEVING MOTH By R. 3. Phillips The Thoroughbred Saddle Stallion, HER WOREY The pretty girl with the arched eye brows sighed happily. "It's just aw fully queer, isn't it?" she murmured. "What?" inquired the tall young man, rousing himself with an effort from contemplation of the distracting waves of her hair. "What is queer?" "Why," said the pretty girl, "I was just thinking. If you hadn't missed your train that night and had to stay over at your cousin's and if I hadn't just chanced to take that evening to return your cousin's book I had kept so long why, we'd never have met or anything!" "That's so," agreed the young man in the dreamy tone of one who is per fectly contented with things as they are. The pretty girl frowned a trifle. "You don't seem a bit impressed by the possibility," she said. "Or to real ize how dreadful " "What's the use?" asked the young man. "We did meet, so it's all right. What's the use of worrying over what might have been?" mhe pretty girl twisted the lace on her handkerchief. "I don't like to think about it," she said. "Do you suppose, Jimmy, that just such a little thing as missing your train was all that stood between our never meet ing? It it seems so casual! Don't you suppose we'd have met anyhow that it was intended " "Why, of course!" said the young man firmly. "It was intended that we should fall in love with each other, so we'd have had to meet somehow. Of course we'd have met." The pretty girl brightened a bit and then frowned again. "I don't see how," she persisted. "You happened to be in Chicago for the first time in years and weren't coming again for centuries, because you live in Maine. I never go to Maine. We couldn't pos sibly have met. You don't know how dreadful it makes me feel! It would have wrecked your life, Jimmy?" She leaned forward anxiously and the young man looked as solemn as he could as he reached for her hand. "Don't speak of it!" he said with feeling. "It gets worse the more I think of it," she went on. "We'd have been unhappy all our lives just because we hadn't found each other and we wouldn't have known what was mak ing us so unhappy! I oh, Jimmy!" She paused with horror in her gaze. The young man in alarm asked what was the trouble. "Oh," she said in an anguished tone, "or do you suppose you'd have thought you were in love with some other girl and and married her?" The young man looked a trifle dazed, but had presence of mind enough to shake his head. "Of course not!" he assured her. "How can you imagine such a thing? Impossible!" "You might have done so," she per sisted, tragically. "I'm sure you would, too. Men always marry some one!" "So do girls!" broke in the-young man triumphantly. "You no doubt would have married some one else yourself. " The pretty girl put her handkerchief to her eyes. "If that's all you think of the depth of my af affection!" she said. "It just shows how lit little you care! I never in the world would have liked any one else and I had no Idea you could be so cruel as to calmly admit that you could! I sup suppose you'd have been just as hap py, too!" "I never said I'd have married any one else!" denied the young man, looking worried. "Hut if you'd never met me you wouldn'thave realized how little you cared for any one else," she went on. "You'd have thought you 1 loved her. I'm sure you'd have married her. It's just as If I got you through mere chance instead of fate. I never was so mis miserable in my life! It spoils everything!" "You liked Sam Phillips pretty well before I came on the scene," said the young man in self-defense. "If you hadn't met me wouldn't you " "And I don't suppose you'd have cared a bit!" she said, coldly. "You wouldn't have minded at all!" "But I wouldn't have known about it!" argued the young man. "Neither would you have known about my af fairs!" "That doesn't make a particle of dif ference!" said the pretty girl. "It doesn't alter the situation a bit! I can't understand 3011, James! I don't believe you really care about me!" "Now, Millie," said the young man, coming over to hfr. "what is the use of talking so when it was so arranged a million years or so ago that we should meet :d marry each other and nobody else? Why, it simply had to come about somehow. The train I missed had nothing to do with it!" "Do do you truly think so?" she inquired, rolling her damp handker chief up in a ball. "I'm sure of it." said the young man firmly. He was a wise young man for his years. "I guess," said the pretty girl with a happy sigh, "I guess you're right about it, Jimmy!" Odd Reason for Maiming. London. When a man was re manded at Clonmel (Ireland) on a charge of cattle maiming, it was al leged that the tails of nine cows were cut off for the purpose of getting the hair to sell to harness makers.

When the Moth was introduced to his Star an event for which he had striven, to be mathematically exact, two months and 2G days, he was so agitated he could scarcely play his conventional part, much less make the clever remarks he felt wen- he occa sion's due. The Star otherwise Xada Hartlett was so used to masculine efforts at brilliancy, which were often signal failures, that the words "This is a pleasure" startled her. by their sim plicity and e vident sincerity, into look ing quite dc-'iuitely at the man who said them. She favored him with a most bewitching smile, sending him deeper into the mire of the common place. "Let's go out where it's cool," was his next remark, incoherent to him. but apparently understood, for his sug gestion was seconded by a deepening of the smile. Hruce Ware had made so many pil grimages up those particular steps, it seemed sometimes to him that he must have worn a pathway peculiar to himself. For a Moth, he seemed to himself to presume. Hut at the end of the pathway was the golden smile of Xada Hartlett, and in its witchery he forgot to remember his presump tion. This night was no exception. Xada, radiant in a glorified gown of white, came to meet him with graciously ex tended hand. "So glad to see you, Bruce. I was feeling horribly lonely until the maid brought your card." Bruce, struggling against the desire to believe that the pleasantly personal in those words could have any deeper moaning, smiled in a manly, whole hearted waj. "Be careful, or I shall soon be ad vertising myself as a 'sure cure for the blues.' ' "Don't do it. It's selfish, perhaps but I'm not willing to share my meed of your society." "I don't think there's danger of com petition, as long as you can endure having such a commonplace duffer about," Hruce answered, with his usual simple directness. Miss Bartlett bent over a huge mass of crimson roses and apparently minutely admired each separately. Then she looked up at him with a pe culiar smile. "Don't you rather under rate yourself?" she asked, very slowly. "Rather, it is apparently you who overrate my value. I don't know just why, Xada, you are so kind to me you who know so many brilliant men." Miss Bartlett was a beauty, woman of the world, worldly, and an exceed ingly clever writer. Therefore no logical reasoning accounted for the ex quisite and very evident blush that tried to rival the crimson roses. "Don't you?" she questioned, paus ing for a wee time. Then she hurried on: "So-called brilliant people don't always satisfy one. I feel so often like a puppet that must dance just so, or my public will tire. It's a drag, this trying to keep the pace. I can be just myself with you, Bruce, and it's such a comfort." "When you need comfort when you feel blue though God knows why you should send for me," Bruce admon ished, with a loyally tender smile. "Only then?" The almost whispered words swept him to where she stood, still toying with the roses. "Don't look so, Xada! I can't stand it, loving you as I do!" He took her hands in a clasp almost harsh. "And don't let my telling you this make any difference. I'm always your friend, al ways." "Only that?" with a tenderly wist ful ghost of a smile. "That's enough for a chump like me, dearie. I'm willing to take crusts." "Quite willing?" "Don't, Xada! Your sweetness only makes me wretched!" He let her hands fall and stood looking at her with a miserable attempt at a smile. "Why wretched?" This time the glory of her eyes fairly dazzled the Moth. "Because oh, Xada! You can't really care for a chump like me? Can you?" Xada indulged a fetching smile. "P'raps I can't but I do." Rruce caught her to a wildly beating heart. But he could not wholly be lieve. "Why do you. Xada? There are so many men. Men who have written books, music, painted pictures " A slender hand put a check on his lips. "They are puppets like myself, play things of a fickle public. But you are n man. dear. It is I who should ask why you care " But the doubting Moth had ceased to doubt, and, according to a time worn but ever ney custom, he sealed the bargain with a kiss. Still More Wonderful. "It is remarkable that birds are so intelligent, when they're so small, isn't it?" asked one member of the Easy Information club of her choicest friend, as they walked home to gether from a talk on "Our Home Birds." "Yes, isn't it?" assented the friend, eagerly. "Why, just think even how very clever the little cuckoos In cuckoo clocks are, and of course they are only little wooden birds." Youth's Companion.

When The New York Tribune As sociation six yeurs ago decided to estab lish the New York Tribune Farmer, a non-political, national journal, to be de voted to every branch of agriculture and other interests of the farmer and his family in every part of the country, men of the highest authority in every branch of farm work and farm experience were consulted as to writers whote services it would be most desirable to secure. When the late Dr. J C. Currier, of Minnesota, the author of "Horse Sense," was asked to name the best writers on horses and on veterinary practice he named only one: "Dr. C. D. Smead,. living in Logan N. Y., is just the one you want if you can get him." Dr. Currier's opinion proved him as good a judge of men as of horse's. Dr. Smead undertook the work of an swering not only veterinary questions, but all reasonable queries in regard to the breeding, the care and the feeding of all domestic animals; he taught how to keep them well and that beasts sel dom need medicine if properly looked after. Not the questioners alone proflted by Dr Smead's department, the value of which received immediate and extended recognition. There is a good reason for this. Dr. Smead didn't take up his profes sion as an easy way of earning a living. He has been a practical farmer and live stock breeder from his youth. He loves animals and is unhappy when they suf fer or fail in health, so many years ago he decided to learn how to care for and t cure them; he dropped work, took a I course and became a doctor himself not for the money he might earn but for iiUn .r tu. 1 l i i rr : , animals. And he didn't stop study when j he left the school; he has studied books, I reports, ano, better still, tne animals themselves every day since. No wonder ho succeeds and is to day, largely on ac count of his work in the New York nuiice oi uissoiuuon. Notice is hereby given that the copart nership heretofore existing under the firm and style of I. E. Gilbert & Co., is this day dissolved by mutual consent. All parties owing the Arm, is hereby no tified to settle such account at once by cash or bankable note. This 13th dav of March, 1908. I. E. GILBERT, CHAS. KOOCK.
