'  ��������� '-ii:j difficulty in judging the mtnts  of Sullivan as a hitter is that he never   faced ''a really good  man  oi     bis  cAvn weight  until he  met  "Mitchell  m  francs and  Kilrjn  and Corbctt     in  America.

Do you realize what it means to  watch 5,000 sheep alone in the desert''  You have read weird, grewsome stories  oi? the horror of tbe solitary liguthoui.e  keeper's life, but compared to tbe days  of the Mexican shepherd those of the  average keeper of the light are filled  with gayety and noise. Even with  their one or two dogs the shepherds  often go insane, and were it not for tbe  company of their shaggy collies the  iuuacy among them would rise to an  almost incredible percentage, if we are  to believe those who have followed the  sneep in the desert and therefore 'maw  be supposed to know.  Once in old Santa Fe, N. M.,. I met a  man avho for twelve years had followed the sheep. His work was done. All  day long be sat. in a chair in tbe rear  of a little dobe store, crouched over,  gibbering to himself, bleating���������an idiot..  He still saw bis sheep swaying like a  great white wave among the sagebrush, and ever in bis ears sounded th*  killing monotone of their bleats. One  Doy, though fifteen years of age, is  mentally uo further advanced thanfdie  average child of five. His father \s a  shepherd, bis mother dieil wbeu bo was  four years old, aud bis father toolc him  out upon the range. All his life has  been spent among the sheep. He is one  with them today.  How is it possible, then, you ask, that  men are to be found willing to watch  them? It is very easy. Sheep herding  Is a lazy job at best; and the "greaser'.  Is tbe laziest creature on earth. For $20  a month be is willing to sit in tbe sand  and listen to tbe never ending bleating  until the little mind be has gives way  aud they fetch him in from the range  insane. He is glad to take tbe chance  for $20 a month.  The,greaser is not the only shepherd  in the west. On tbo vast ranges of Nevada and Wyoming you may, run across  na occasional college man tending tbe  ���������beep. Once, indeed., a college professor,  ill of consumption, undertook to follow  15,000 bleaters for the summer. In o,u-  tunin they found him insane, on bis  hands   and   knees   among   the   sbeeu.

People who tell you that there is no  oney in raising chicks may have tried  to make money in the business by using  setting hens as hatchers, and they,  might as well have tried to locate a  gold mine in the cabbage patch.

It depends entirely for what  purpose you choose your gown whether  or not it should last.  A fairly safe rule to go by Is that the  itaple sort of clothes, made in conservative ways, should be bought with a  very distinct idea of "long life" nnd  that evening gowns, especially it' you're  a good deal of a butterfly, should bo  got with almost tbe sole idea of effect.

VALENTINE'S  DAY  Today    is     Feb-  11,  a  date in the  year    which always     appeals to Cupid's     victims,     for    it is  Valentine  Day.     This morning early and  Avhen  sensible people     Avere fast asleep the  young    man crept under  the window  of Ins lady-lo\e.       She AVas speedily  aAVakcned f om her sleep and in ans-  ! wcr to rerealed      whistles,  (in olden  limes it  avouIiI  have been  in  answer  to  a   s.Jendid  tenor  voice singing  a  popular love melody)  drew aside the.  curtains  and gazed  upon  him  below.  That  was  all  that avas  needed.      As  Ioiik as lie  was  the first nian she set  eyes o*i     on  Valentine morning they  would,      according to  popular superstition, be wedded -ere tbe next Valentino morning came round..
