ui electloji is now necessary to hil the

necessary to lill the vacancy on the
board before thai time. The date of
election will probably be announced
at lhe meeting of the council on Saturday.
a.- yet no names have been men-

The late Councillor Storey was one of
the ni'.-i ardent supporters in council
of the water works proposal and it
is more than probable that those fav-

have a man cucceed to the seat who
will support the by-law. Whether
or no* there is any serious opposition
to the water works system, whiclh
has been before council for the last
several months, will most probably
be shown when the time comes for
elec.ing a councillor In the ward, and
the opponents of the movement, if
any, will doubtless seize on that opportunity to express themselves.
Should tuich not be the case it is highly probable that the seat will go by
acclamation in view oii the short time

lias allowed stock to smash through It
and destroy $fi0 worth of grain. A
saving of 50 cents in muking or repair
ing cheap. Inferior gates often results
in a loss equivalent to tbe cost of
enough first class steel gates to supply
un entire farm. There is no economy
iu the average type of plank or wood
en gate.
Stock farmers, above all others, re
ulize tbe importance of gates that will
do reliable duty all the time and everywhere, Where pure bred stock Is main
tinned it is reckless extravagance to
use doubtful gates. Live stock breed
its cannot afford to risk poorly constructed plauk gates that are short
lived aud easily wrecked. If they arc
heavy enough to be reasonably strong
they are too expensive in many communities to warrant their use, especial
ly In the face of opportunities to em
ploy steel gates costing less In the long
run. Hundreds of costly accidents
aud complications In the conduct of n
breeding farm are traceable to gates
that fall of their duty.
Attention Is called to this guestion
in the belief that it is entitled to the
serious consideration of all stock farm
ers. Gates are a large factor In successful husbandry. No farmer can se
cure the full results of his work ol
make the most of his opportunities ii
the gate problem Is not solved with
him. Ignored, it Is sure to cause acci
dents and trouble representing linn
dreels of dollars. Good business farm
ers will not Ignore It.
We recommend no special make ol
steel gate. It ls the type that we here
approve and urge as a new and significant departure. Wooden gates of
modern. Improved design should nl
ways be given preference wherevei
cost nnd service favor them ns ngninst
other types. Whether the one or the
other shnll be adopted is a simple question of dollars nnd cents, to be decided
on that bnsls nnd in accordance with
Individual conditions nnd predilections
There ls a large place for both wooden
and steel gntes in agriculture, but n
comparison based on nil tbe qunllties
required in an efficient farm gate
makes the steel type a favorite with
thousands of corn belt farmers.

Vtry Hardy, Originally From Scotland
and  Easily  Raised.
The Cheviot sheep come originally
from the rtiwd hills of Scotland and.
as befits their ancestry, are hardy and
strong. They are a good unit ton breed,
not taking on I'm in excess when being lilted for market, ns do some-heavier breeds. The meat is of line Haven-
and quality and lean enough lo make
(delicious eating. They nre of medium
welghl und grow quickly. They are
not subject to disease and do uot need
to be pampered.
These sheep thrive best on Ihe rocky
hillside unci mountain pastures nearest like their native land.   Their wool
is of very fine quality and of good
qunnlii.v uml is much in demand for
the making of cloth for oilier garments
and men's clothing.
This breed of sheep was first introduced into this country by a New
fork mail who had become interested
in them. They were so well liked Ihat
much pains were taken to keep the
breed pure and improve the Hock.
Wherever these improved Hocks are
shown much interest Is manifested,
aud there is no doubt but that they
will be more and more largely bred on
laud adapted to their habits of living.
Silage For Steers.
The use of silage for fattening beef
cattle has been tested at a number of
experiment stations and by stockmen
with excellent results. In experiments
conducted by the writer in 11104 it wns
found thnt silage fed steers sold at
S4.1>r> per 100 pounds, while those fed
no silnge brought only $4.70 per 100
pounds, a gaiu of 25 cents in favor of
the silage fed animals, It was found
that for every 100 pounds of gain 471
pounds of silage fed saved eighteen
pounds of grain and IDO pounds of alfalfa.��� Professor D. II. Otis iu Wisconsin Bulletin,
Luxuries In Stock.
Senator Bailey of Texas, who once
refused 1*200,000 for his racing stock
farm, including his stable of thoroughbreds, recently disposed of the outfit
in separate sales nnd Is reported to
be selling his oilier Texas real estate.
He says he cannot afford such luxuries nnd is too absorbed in senatorial
affairs to give time to slock raising.
The capacity of milk bullies is something whieh at the present time is occupying the attention of the city sealers iu till the large cities. In graduating thousands of hollies recently all
bottles that were found oue or more
drains under capacity were marked so
much short and all bottles running over
iu capacity were marked O. K., which
would leave the consumer to believe
tuat none was over capacity nnd ihat
they were being wronged by short
measure. In fact, the consuming public was getting many thousand quarts
of milk more than the number of bottles would Indicate.
Density of Cream.
The thickness or density of cream
depends upon two things���the centrifugal force used and the regulation of
the cream outlook, in the separation
by centrifugal force the milk is thrown
to the outside of the bowl because it
is heavier than the butter fat. The
latter works in toward the center aud
is known as cream. The nearer the
center of the bowl the thicker the
cream, provided uniform feed unci
speed ure maintained.
lYlet'-icd cf Separation.
Nowhere is the progress of dairying
better Illustrated than in the contrast
between the old and the new systems
of separating the cream from the milk
upon ih ��� farm. It Is nol clillieuli to
call to mind tho old sprlngbouse with
the crocks and pans of milk sel away
to eoi I. ':..:> r uo circumstances were
these io be disturbed lest perchance
the process of rising should be handicapped. After twenty-four or thlrty-
six hours Ihe cream wns tnken off wilh
a spoon shaped skimmer. Of course
only as niiieh as could he got in this
way was secured.
Dairy Stock  Show.
Recently there was held at Ilutehln-
son. Minn., oue of the largest dairy
picnics of the season, and in connection wns held the first summer dairy
stock show in Minnesota. There were
nearly 3,000 people present, and the
picnic was considered a success ln
ev?ry respect. Many good prizes were
offered for the best dairy animals, and
it is probable that there never wns a
better showing of dairy cattle made at
a sounfj* gathering.

?One Hundred Dollars?
o In Gold. 6
[Copyright, '"OS, by T. C. McClure.]
Farmer Henderson borrowed a bait
bushel measure of the Widow Bailey,
und one of his cows kicked the bottom
out of It. He offered to pay la cents
for the damage, aud the widow wanted 30. This led to hard feelings on
both sides.
One day tbe farmer sold off some
live stock and was paid $100 in gold
The sale wns made at his burn, and
Instead of going at once to his bouse
to put away the money the man wrapped the ten pieces In his handkerchief,
put them in bis pocket and went to
the back end of his farm to see ubout
building a dam across a creek. He
was poking around for two hours, and
then be cut across n portion of the
widow's property to get home, in so
doing lie came across an old white
horse that had been turned out to live
as long as he would without more
In passing the animal Henderson
stubbed Ills loe and took a sprawl,
antl the incident was to hear fruit.
When he reached his house those ten
pieces of gold wrapped up in the bandanna were missing.
Henderson flew to the barn and
searched around for half an hour.
Then he was off for the creek. He
had two hours of daylight, and he
searched the ground almost inch by
Inch. Not a sign of bis missing money
could bo found. He did uot return
past the old horse nor give him a
thought until near midnight that night.
He blamed himself, his wife blamed
him more, and his evening was anything but joyous. Ho woke from a
sleep troubled with bad dreams to cry
out to bis wife:
"I've found it, Hannah; I've found
"Well, don't yell the news-to the
whole county. Where did you find
"Say, now, I passed Widow Bailey's
old white horse in her pasture, nnd
while I was looking at his spavins I
fell down. The wad must have worked out of my pocket then. I'm going
to take the lantern and go over there
aud look."
"And little good It'll do you. if you
lost the money there tho old horse has
eaten It up. There's an article in our
county paper this week about a horse
that ate up money. He had that hundred dollars hogged down before you
were home. He might have swallowed
it all nt once, but I rather think he
took a piece at a time, so as to enjoy
the richness of it."
"But what in thunder am I going to
do?" exclaimed the husband In desperation.
"(lo out in the morning nnd look. If
the money is there, It's all right; If the
old horse has swallowed it, you'll have
to buy him to get it back."
They sat up the rest of the night discussing the matter, nnd when daylight
came the fnrmer wns off to tnke a
look. He found the old equine lying
down and fust asleep, but he didn't
find the money. It had been gulped
down. When he returned nnd reported
his wife said:
"Then you eat your breakfast and go
over nnd see the widow. You've got
to bow the knee. You've got to be
slick. You've got to get up some sort
of a story. You've got lo have that old
horse before noon."
The husband felt thnt he had. It.
hurt nnd humiliated him. but there
was a hundred dollars at stake. When
he hnd finished his men! he walked
over to the other farmhouse, having
nt his tongue's end what he thought
was a pretty good yarn. The widow
was drawing water nt the well. She
censed to draw nnd stood looking nt
the caller.
"Mrs. Bailey," liegnn the fnrmer after clearing his throat two or three
times, "you have nn old white horse. I
have known him for years and years.
I always hnd a soft spot In my heart.
for him. He's no good lo you any
more, nnd I want to buy him."
"About Hint half bushel measure?"
replied  the woman.
"Here's a dollar for It. Sorry we had
any trouble. Wliut do you think the
old critter Is worth?"
"Well, ns he lias served me faithfully, I I bought I would never part with
him, but being I'm thinking some of
moving to South Dakota, and being I
know you'd use liiui well, I inljrht let
Ii 1 in go. I should want a hundred dollars, though."
"Good lauds, widow, but you know
he Isn't worth five!"
"No, he Isn't, but there's n sentiment
about ll. you know. If I wasn't thinking of South Dakota I wouldn't tnke
$200. No, I couldn't look him In the
face If I took less thnn a hundred."
The fnrmer offered ten, twenty,
forty, but it was no good. After an
hour's haggling he went home and got
seventy-five, nnd the old while horse
wns his. He promised to be kind to
him nnd love him nnd help him to live
twenty years longer, nnd It wns af-
feellng to see bim leading the old
wreck home and cheering his crippled
He took him direct to the ban, and
after dinner ho would knock  him ln
thcr bend and have a search for that
gold mine.    He was ln the very act of
I entering  the  barn   when  he trod  on
, that lost "wad."   Ho had lost It beforo
starting for the creek.    The wife ap-
' pea red Just In time to see him pick It
| up  and  hear the Jingle.    She looked
! from him to the horse and from the
] lmrse to the bandanna nnd then softly

Amundsen's Famous Vessel to Lie In
Golden Gate Park.
The placing recently in Golden Gale
park, San Francisco, of the steamer
Gjon has revived interest in Captain
Uonhl Amundsen and the famous little vessel on which he sailed through
the northwest passage. Born In Chris-
liauia, a Norwegian of the Norwegians,
Captain Amundsen first came prominently before the pub]'*, ns a member
of the antarctic expedition of the Bel-
gk-n, which vessel lu 181)7-0 cruised in
