About of the cattle had beon worked before. For the yoking of this herd of five hundred, there were forty seven very orderly quiet men in attendance, only a few of whom were not hurt in some way by the oxen, but I was fortune enough in not getting a scratch. Six oxen were used to each loaded wagon, with one driver. The men who superintended, four in number, rode on horses. When the order was given to start, each team moved in lively manner, some of them almost beyond control, which caused no end of confusion among the drivers. One driver was thrown by the force in front of his wagon, the front wheel of which passed over him. but I succeeded in getting him out before the hind wheel struck him. It took several days time for him to be able to walk again. The first night we were out, we camped just over the line in Missouri, in the Kaw Indian reservation. They were a friendly tribe. Here we found a fine country of rolling prairie, with plenty of water. The next point of interest was our stop at Council Grove, one hundred twenty-fiv- e miles from Kansas City. This village was on the Moseo river, and consist ed of five or sick shack houres in which white people lived, and one stone house, built in 1349, in which the Indian agent lived. From here we traveled west and crossed the big cottonwood river a6out 20 miles from Council Grove. When about ready for camp, there came a regular cloudburst. I, in company with six others, was on guard at this time. The wind and fall of water was terrific. The cattle stampeded; running over two of our men and hurting them badly. The air became so oppressive that we thought we could not possibly have lived, had it lasted for five minutes longer. The water, on a level, was over our shoe-topWe reported to headquarters what had happened, but were told to rest till morning before trying to find the cattle. The next day we were up early, and the boss of our gang with 25 men, started in search of the one-four- th s. his gun and all he ever owned. They bury their dead somewhat after this fashion. They dig the grave about two feet deep and place the corpse there and cover it with poles and grass to keep the dirt from falling on the body. They bury the belongings of the Indian with him, (he may need them when he reaches the happy hunting ground. Well, I was very anxious to secure the gun which. I supposed would be in the grave. At the east end was an opening so I began to work at this side and another man began at the opposite part. I managed to reach a strap and in pulling it out, there came with it, the containing a few bullets, a deck of cards and a powder horn. With my next move, I secured his wash pan and after a third attempt, reached his big iron spoon. The other man at this time called out that he had secured the gun, but it proved to be one of the bones from the leg of the body. We thought we had a good Joke on him. I made a final attemnt and brought out the head of the body. We examined it closely. As we could see no bullet holes, we concluded he had died a natural deth. I restored the shot pouch to the grave, but took the wash pan and spoon to camp, scoured till I disposed of some of the rust, and we used them all the time during the remainder of our journey.

Where mild weather is apt to be the rule in late fall and early spring, breeding for two litters a year will obviously be considered in a different light than in a section much further north. The breeder in Canada or on the Atlantic coastr will modify many matters regarding breed or feeds that are accepted gospel in the corn belt. Locally, the extent and kind of pasture at the breeder's disposal, like his other facilities and resources, will, to a greater or less extent, influence his practices.

A By Legend YOUNG PORTER 1910, i Checkmating the Devil Original. SUSAN Copyright, 1910, by American Press Association. Copyright, by American Press Association. A. D. 875 ! U more than seventy years since I did the same thing myself. When I was your age I was appi enticed to a New York china merchant. The apprentice usually lived in the family of his employer, and I lived with the Van Horns. Mr. Van Horn's office was on the ground floor of his house, the living rooms being upstairs. The house stood on the bank of the East river, and from It we could see the ships In which he was interested come in to the slips on the other side of the street, poking their bowsprits almost In at our windows. I was but fourteen years of age when 1 was apprenticed to Mr. Van Horn He had but one child, Katherine, who was twelve, to whom I soon stood as a brother. Before the term of my apprenticeship had expired we had become lovers, and I preferred to remain where 1 was rather than accept a position that would separate me from Katherine. But of this Mr. Van Horn was ignorant. Meanwhile Mrs. Van Horn had died, and her place in the household man- agement was taken by a housekeeper, a middle aged widow named Clark. Mrs. Clark had no sooner come Into the family than it was apparent that she aimed at marrying Mr. Van Horn. By that time I was nineteen years old and Katherine was sixteen. It was natural that we should unite against the common enemy, for Katherine was up In arms against any oue who aspired to take her mother's place. During my boyhood 1 became a somnambulist. The first time 1 walked in my sleep 1 awoke to find myself standing before a mirror brushing my hair. I was terribly shocked and, running to my bed. covered my head and lay trembling till morning. Another time, when the bowsprit of a large ship extended over the house, I found myself one night on the bowsprit. I saved myself from falling into the street by catching a rope. I had gone on to the roof, got on to the bowsprit and was shinning dowu. At that time there were no safes such as we have now. A modern safe compared with the strong box of that day is like an ocean liner compared with one of the caravels in which Columbus crossed the Atlantic. I well remember the strong box Mr. Van Horn kept in one of the rooms on the main floor of his house, a room he used for his private office. It was covered with strips of iron interlaced like basketwork. But it was opened by a big iron key that would now serve for -- And so, my boy, you're going to city to take a position in business. the In the year at a Maying It's party ? I Mrs. Clark, and there was at once a great change h. his treatment of rae. It was plain to me that she had not only opened his eyes to my relations with his daughter, of which he bad been oblivious, but she led him to suspect that I was stealing his papers. She herself was oblivious to nothing that was going on and had not only discovered that Katherine and 1 were lovers, but that we stood in her way to become Mrs. Van Horn. But Mr. Van Horn was a secretive man, and, though he was seriously poisoned against me and was ambitious for his daughter to become the wife of an eminent man, he pretended to disbelieve the charge against me, preferring to set a watch upon me without letting any one in the house know that he was doing so. He slept with his door open at the other end of the hall, on which my room also faced, and since he was a light sleeper it was almost impossible for me to leave my room without his knowing it. Well, one night I woke up from one of my somnambulistic walks, and my astonishment was as great as, if not greater than, ever before. I was standing In the counting room' on the main floor. Mr. Van Horn was standing in the door that opened into his private office, while by the light of a candle Mrs. Clark was seen kneeling beside the strong box. "Go to jyour room," said Mr. Van Horn to me. I lost no time in doing- so, but soon recovered from the shock of my sudden awakening from somnambulism, for J saw that my physical defect had made a great change In the situation. The next morning I saw Mrs. Clark packing to leave, and before noon she was out of the house, never to return. As soon as she had gone Mr. Van Horn called me Into his private office .and told me of the loss of his papers, tils consultation with his housekeeper and her turning his suspicions against me. The night before he had heard me get out of bed and, going himself Into the ball, bad seen me start on " what he 60on became convinced was a somnambulistictour.

But instead of that 1 was leading him to the thief, who was at that time engaged in removing more papers from his strong box. Considering that I had saved him from the toils of a bad woman and that be discovered Katherine's strong love for me, Mr. Van Horn consented ioour engagement and afterward, v when we were married, made me his jwirtner. . - a stable door.

He had finished his dinner and was smoking his cigar. His face was a picture of despondency. A gentleman entered the cafe, looked about for a vacant table and, seeing none, seated himself at the one occupied by the melancholy man. The stranger dined, rinsed his lips and fingers, wiped them with his napkin and lit a cigar. The young man still sat brooding. "Pardon me," said the stranger. "You seem distressed. Perhaps I may relieve you." There was a kindly, irresistible tone in the voice, and step by step the stranger won the young man's confidence till at last he confessed that the cause of his distress was love. "Unrequitted?" asked the other. "Xo; the girl's father will not con- sent." "That's bad, and she will she not marry you without his permission?" "No." "H'm," said the stranger. "That's doubly bad.

Interesting and exhaustive studies have been ma'de in France of Napoleon's chirography. Whena young man Napoleon did not have a bad hand, although.- - like some other great men, he could never learn to spell. When he" was an artillery officer his writing was simple and legible, as his life was simple and direct But when the Corsican Captain Bonaparte distinguished himself at the siege of Toulon and became the French General Bonaparte his writing took on what has been called "a furious illegibility." Curiously enough, from that time there seems to have been a gradual degeneration until, profoundly discouraged and utterly humiliated, he misscratched an undecipherable, spelled scrawl of submission to the prince regent on July 14, 1815. It is said that this change from a simple to a confused writing began at a certain date namely, with a report, skillfully garbled, of the part he took in what Carlyle called the "whiff of grapeshot that spoke from the steps of St Roch on the 13th Vendemaire" (Oct. 5, 1795).

Two Remarkable Cases In Which Sleep Warnings Came True. "I dreamed that the ship was in a heavy sea, that a big wave came over her bows, pressed down upon her, and then she rolled over on her starboard side and disappeared." This Is not an extract from a story. It. Is evidence, given on oath, during the inquiry at London into the mysterious disappearance of the Waratah. the vessel which, on her second voy--- i age, mysteriously disappeared in July, 1909, and has never --been heard of since. And so impressed was the passenger with the vision that he left the vessel at Durban, from which point she continued on her ill fated voyage. Thus one more was added to the extraordinary coincidences In which dreams have figured. The third Lord Waterford was able to verify a story of an extraordinary dream coming true. Talking one day with the landlord of the inn in the village close to Curraghmore, a man rushed up and said there had been a murder on the hills. "Then it must be the little one," said the landlord, at which Lord Waterford, not unnaturally, became very suspicious. The landlord proceeded to explain that in the night he dreamed that two men had come to the inn and that the taller of the two had murdered the shorter with a very curious knife. He told his dream to his wife, who laughed at him. But, to his horror, 1 the men he had seen while asleep came to the inn, and one used the curious knife to cut up his food. They left, and soon afterward news of the murder arrived. Search was made for a tall man answering to the landlord's description, and one was quickly arrested. In prison he confessed he had murdered his short companion.

Jordan is in fine shape, looks like a colt. He is so well known that he needs no introduction to the public. He is known from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. Jordan has sired from 50 to 100 colts every year for 14 years, and most all of them have been sold from weanlingsjt;o 4. year-old- s at from $100 to $2,000. There has been a goodly number of them sold from 500 to $1,000. There has been over One Hundred Thousand Dollars paid to the people of Adair and Joining counties for this horse's colts. I will also stand NOBLE PEACOCK, a son of Jordan Peacock, on the same terms as Jordan Peacock NOBLE is a very fine young horse. He was shown in two rings at the Columbia Fair, last year and won each time. There were 8 entries in one ring and Noble won the blue tie. His first dam was by Artist Jewel, 2nd dam by Cromwell Denmark, 3rd dam by Artist 75. From the above breeding you will see there is no better bred one living than NOBLE PEACOCK. I will also stand 2 fine Jacks, HIGHWAY and BLACK DIAMOND at $10.00 to insure a mare with foal. Highway's colt won the blue at the Columbia Fair last year, and several of them sold for $100 at weaning time. These are the best Jacks that I have ever seen in Adior County. BLACK DIAMOND is under 3 years old. Every one that has looked at him say that he is the best one gE j Sg they have ever seen. jE 5 Zz: 7is" si Mi is l, si 7!s Mi M 7k is 3 IS JlIS 71s SI is Mi is Mi Mi SI Mi fl.50 One Dollar and Fifty Centsgets The News and the Weekly Courier Journal One Year hr Mi is Z Money due in all cases when the mare is traded or moved from the neighborhood.
