Many cows nre uot -worth keeping.
There Is no surplus of nun t cuttle In iho
huiil, but no desirable young animal
should be sacrificed Hint promises usefulness In tbe neur future even though
for a few months it Is kept at n disadvantage, says J. W, Yule of Connecticut, To profitably fallen u loan animal
or any other kind on purchased feed
Is an uphill business, yet the manure
is valuable and "might pay for the wire.
As for the best way to fatten much depends on the animal, us to ago, breed,
etc. I never am troubled to sell my
Devons nt n good price, wbieb, according to figures, ranges from .'j!25 to $-18,
and good beef too. I should consider
it impossible to make good ment from
some cowb I hnve seen. Many unprofitable cows could be put to raising
calves without any grain, This would
continue their usefulness and at the
same time raise cuttle for future use.
A good way to feed for beef Is where
roughage Is plenty go a little slow
at first, Increasing grain later ou. Any
kind of roots Is valuable. If their
analyses are not high, still their mechanical effects are good, assisting in
tbe digestion, counteracting the beating effects of grain and giving a good
relish for food. I would not use comment alone. Cobmenl might do, but
provender would bo better. A good
ration would be half Cornmeal and half
good wheat bran, and toward the finish add a small quantity of cottonseed
meal, according to tho age and condition of the creature feeding.

It Is uot wise to feed cottonseed men]
excessively to fattening cattle, says
.Professor W. A. Henry In Breeder's
Gazette. Tbls Is done In the south,
where the meal is comparatively cheap
and com relatively high. In some of
tbe feeding establishments in the south
fatten tug steers are allowed leu or
twelve pound;- of eotlOnsoed menl daily
as their sole grain feed mul have cottonseed hulls ior roughage. The steers
on this allowance fatten rapidly, bi.i
after eight or ten weeks feeding they
are liable to become blind from the excessive use of this single rich feeding
stuff, lt Is most unfortunate for one
tu feed lu this manner. Far better Is
It to mix cottonseed meal uml comment together than to feed either one

of n i-nse of either first or second

Young Bliss hadn't exactly turned
tramp when be first met with old Merely of the Biliglium County bunk, but
lie had been out of work for n year or
more and "was seedy nnd discouraged
uml wandering If lie hadn't belter go
and bang himself. At tbe Snllai'svllie
depot be pulled old Morely out of the
way of n wild engine and saved his
life. The old mini looked him over and
"Young mnn, ccmo up to Grafton tomorrow and have u talk with me.
You'll (Ind ute at the bank."
On tbo morrow, having stolen a ride
on a freight train, young Bliss appeared nl the bank, and old .Merely said
"I'll give you a place ut $!"> a week.
You ean go to work in tbo morning."
That wns the old man's way. Ho
never required h bond or asked for
references, It1 lie decided to take a
new man on In the bank or let an old
man go, it was all over in five minutes, lie expected n man to be prompt,
honest, .mil to work for his Interest
alone, and be never bud a word of
praise. In addition to the brink, he
owned a woolen mill, n big stone quarry and u flouring mill. Young Bliss
went to work lu the woolen mil) as assistant to the manager, and for six
months lie seemed to hnve dropped
out of the old man's sight. He bad
Inkeii held with great earnestness and
more than earned bis sulary. lie was
hustling' around one day when old
Morely came in and said:
"There seems to be more In you than
I thought for. I am shifting Mr. Craig
to tlfo biuik, and you can take his place
and salary."
Mr. Craig was the office superintendent, subordinate to tbo general manager of the mill, atitl young Bliss bad
(tiled the position for several months
without criticism when three incidents
happened in a day.
The lirst wan his rescuing Joe Hover,
on Idiot whom a lot of other boys were
harassing and annoying. The Idiot
looked at Bliss a long time, as If seeking tu impress the picture on his mind,
and turned away uttering a queer gab-
ble of words.
Tlie second was a dispute with
[antes Richards, tbe hank cashier, over
ins uuNoit.
ii bit of carelessness some one else was
responsible for, nnd tbe third was
mooting Minnie Morely, tbo old man's
daughter, for the first time as she returned I mm ;i school lu the east. Much
incident was but n trifle at the time,
but each was to have a bearing ou bis
Richards, who was a single man of
thirty, nt'rogaiil mid overbearing by
nature, demanded servility from all his
subordinates. He elected to look upon
young Bliss In that light, ami the few
hut woids lhat passed between tbem
made iiim ilili-st for revenge, lie had
imped-In his own mind for two or three
years past to lind favor lu .Minnie
Morely's eyes and become the banker's soii-lulaw. Qucerly enough, he
hud made nn enemy of the fool hy
roughly bouncing bim off the bank
steps on two or three occasions.
I wo weeks after the day uf Incidents
young Bliss had to call at llie Morely
residence on a matter of business and
was. Introduced lo the daughter. During the nexl four weeks lie met her
.several times, nud lit length the jealous
eye of u third parly eame to the conclusion lhat it would develop Into n
case of love If not broken up. Tbat
[bird party was the bank cashier, and
he did not have to go far for a plan
All the hands al the quuiTy nud tit"
mills went paid onco u month. The
monthly pay roll amounted to between
SH.UU0 and tfUKH), and In tils new pusl
lion young Bliss made up the roll,
placed Ihe cash iu envelopes anti hand
ed It over lo heads of departments.
Tho quarry was two miles from town,
the mills n quarter of a mile farther,
nnd tlie trip wns made in a buggy. Aa
lite country was opened ami settled the
Idea of robbers was absurd. Tbo mon
ey mib always placed In n satchel nt
the hunk on the lid of the month, pro
vhliiig llie date did nut fall on Sunday,
and Bliss carried It to tho mill tu place
It In envelopes.
lie hud gone through tbls programme
three times and had driven out for the
fourth when a circumstance occurred
lhat sltook llie town of- tJraflon to Its
foundations. When he opened tbe
satchel nt the mill to take oat tbe
money, he round nothing but newspapers In It. Lie miturally argued that
lite cashier bud made some blunder
and was not at all uneasy In his mind
ns he drove back to have it rectified,
To bis amazement, however, Richards
insisted that the money bud been inclosed as usual, and almost ul once he \
dunged Bliss with trying to work a
Protestations availed nothing. Tbe
money was not produced, and young
Bliss wns arrested. The conclusion
was reached that he must hnve met
and pussed'tbe money to u confederate.
Old Morely was satisfied that tbe
young man hnd yielded to temptation,
nnd the cashier was particularly bitter
against blm. Before the day of trial
came there appeared to be but one person In Grafton who doubted bis guilt.
That was old Morely's daughter.
Their oequuhitoiiee bad not gone beyond admiration ou bis side and esteem
on hers, but she gave him credit for
sterling qualities and was persistent ln
bis defense. When tbe trial finally
came off, tbe cashier swore to having
deposited $8,450 In the satchel and
handing It to young Bliss, and tbe accused could only assert that when be
opened tbe satchel after reaching the
mill there wns uo money iu It. This
was no defense.
The jury was being charged, and
there was no doubt in any one's mind
as to tbe verdict, when .Too, tbe Idiot
arrived with a pnekuge under bis arm.
The officers tried to put bim out, but
be resisted vigorously and walked
straight up to the desk of the Judge
and handed up bis package.
"It's tbe stolen money!" exclaimed
bis honor us be tore off the wrapper.
There was instant excitement, and a
dozen men begun to question tbe boy,
Joe stood with a smile and pointed
from the money to the cashier, who
was in court to hear tbe verdict. When
pressed to talk, he giggled and beckoned tlie officers to follow bim. He led
them into the dark alley on oue side
of the bank and Into a side door open-
lug un a room UBcd for the storage of
fuel. Then, thrusting his bnnds deep
into A barrel of straw, he mode motions that tbe money had been found
there. He went further. He mnde It
plain that be bud been looking through
tbe barred window on tbe alley side
when .lames Richards bid the money
weeks before.
lt was all so clear, fool though he
was, that tbe cashier admitted lita
guilt. Of course public opinion whipped about In no time at all, nnd young
Bliss walked out of jail with bis chap
acter cleared, but only three or four
people could understand why tbe cashier should have put up such n job to
ruin an Innocent mnn. Bliss flgnred It
out, old Morely caught on after a bit,
and the young lady In tbe case blush-
Ingly admitted that she half suspected
from the first. The idiot owed one
man n debt of gratitude and another
mnn tt debt of hate, and be paid tbem
both nt once and caused people for
years after to shako their heads nnd
"Yes, Joe's n born fool nil right
enough, but don't you go to believing
tbat be hasn't got brains hidden down
the bnck of his neek!"
Kind neat Did More Thnn Moua.
Broadway cars and vehicles wore
blocked In tt jam. The old horse
wouldn't move. Ills driver stood niter

neither blows nor words would move

stock still. A crowd gathered, watched
and commented.
"Build a fire under him," suggested
one. I
"Stick a pin ln him," advised another.
Again tbe driver laid on tbe whip
more heavily than before, but it was
no go. dust then a man stepped out of
the crowd.
"Let me have a try," he said.
lie walked up to the old horse and
laid bis band on his head.
"Come, old boy; buckle down to it,"
and lie patted blm gently. The horse
turned his old head nnd looked at the
stranger. I
"Come," he continued; "havo another
try; buckle down to It," and ho stroked
his neck.
The old horse understood at last.

Sheriffs and Bloodhounds Cannot
Catch Him.
It, aeeniB that neither a Walla Walla
bloodhound nor a Cudihee apecial can
catch Tracy. The Oregon convict is like
Waring, uf whom tbe poet of confusion
asked, " What's become uf Waring since
be gave tie all the slip?"
So the cry in Sea'tle ie, " What's become of T.acy?"
And Cudihee says. " Dou't bother
Tbe flu-rill" went to Madiron on the
lug Sea Lion on a chase alter the con*
vicL but eent word bark to Seattle that
be could secure no clue to the man's
wberea hunts.
The move of the convict from Ititbell
to Meadow point, thence to Port Madison ami down Admiralty inlet flustered
the oflicers, wbo Innocently thought
they bad Tracy cooped up In a barn at
linlhtdl. Tliia move by him demoralised
their plans and thoy sent to Walla Walla
for more bloodhounds.
Tlieqnestion'uow le, is Tracy in British-Columbia?
The probability seems to point to his
being in the bounds of the province, It
Ib thought by a good many people tbat
the outlaw will bead for the Island.- of
the gulf, II indeed he is not biding ntnuriE

police have received instrui'llona to keep
a fbarp lookout for bim among Ihe

of the line bin capture nr death bhould
only be a (.neetiou of a few hours there1

Mr. Kitcbin ia well aware of tbe position of many who could not do as they

which it is intended.
He says he cannot but Bee unmistakably the brilliant future the City of
