They talk to this Day of the time in which he made the distance. Jack sat him like the Good horseman he was. His excitement was intense but every faculty seemed under perfect control. One thinks and remembers at such times with unwonted quickness and vividness. Not knowing what duty or peril awaited him nerved for whatever it might be.

In such cases the Only profit accrues to the transportation company which charges for carrying freight of course do not depend upon Quality but Quantity.

Whatever the wife and daughter thus seemingly deserted. May have Felt however they gave no sign to visitors. To one was ther Yva to a a leu we Lack. And there was a general if unspoken sentiment abroad that this was a it should also that it would he alike improper and futile to seek for any information about Simpson from him. To better test indeed could there be of the esteem in which he was held than this rare self abnegation. Again several months passed and still there appeared no Simpson. His neighbors were More puzzled More curious. More hopelessly in the dark than Ever and they began to feel aggrieved. Broncho Sam had been Vok ing this sentiment in conversation with his assistant when he made the declaration with which this Story Jogi Jris.

On the other hand there Are few things so easily ruined in the making. Of late years the Creamer Lei have supplied a Large portion of the Best butter but there is still a Good demand for High Quality Dairy Butler. The Standard packages Are tubs which contain 20. 30, 4o and a a it pounds respectively. The tio Pound tub is the size most used by creameries but the Ai rage Farmer will find a smaller size More satisfactory. As it will usually take considerable time and a number of churning to fill the largest tubs Alt of which is detrimental to the product.

All this Fine re however was reserved for other places than the ranch and other occasion than the Days passed there. The most cynical of a old timers found nothing to criticise in his display thereof when he Rode into Pueblo for a Day of combined business and pleasure and. In a Way they Felt a local Pride in one who could hold a certificate of competency from such a sir Hubert As Broncho Sam. And at the same time he by the canons of that Longitude a very respectable More than one Young lady member of some party of Quot personally conducted tourists had looked admiringly at him from the window of the Denver Pullman As he sat on his horse near the station and the landlord of the Arcade i Saloon was understood to have in a i rare interval of sobriety expressed the opinion that such an exhibition was Good for the interests of the Region.

Suit three Miles above the ranch where Jack lived was another of rather bet a ter character As regarded its buildings which stood close to the bed of the Creek. It belonged to a Roan named Simpson. Most people liked him knew him Well. There was a vague impression abroad that Simpson had a history and that his ownership of a Western ranch was but an episode in a a of til 004 a j freaks of Twiton bring Many queer things into popular use the plastering a of crevices with a cd o be has not yet been naturalized in polite neighbourhoods. Never however should the Wist traveler in the West or Southwest judge of the Kernel by the Shell of the inferior toy the exterior. Both not. Fatm Vlasti at Vav her daughter possessed the rare and charming a gift of practical management a which Haw Thorn has ascribed to Little Phoebe in a the House of the seven a a it is a kind of natural magic a he says a that enables these favored ones to bring out the hidden capabilities of 1 things about them and particularly to give a look of Comfort and habitable Ness to any place which for however Brief a period May happen to be their Home a so did cheap and simple material take new character and virtue from their hands so were rough Walls hidden by Chintz of tasteful pattern and homogeneous tint so did refinement Supply the place of costly equipment. Jack Reynolds realized All this the first time he entered the building. To be sure he saw it under favourable circumstances. The daughter of the House had come out to meet him As he approached. When she saw it was her own favorite horse he had brought Home her face lighted up by a sm. which went straight to his heart. Before his visit came to an end he discovered that her name was Edith. What More he discovered about her no one but would know by it could not have been otherwise than pleasant for he arrived at his Home in the highest spirits. He counted he Days until he thought he might Call again and he made them As few a he possibly could. It was Strong Evi hence of Broncho same a partiality for his Young Friend that he took but Irbid exception to what must surely in a detraction to an embryo cow by but then Sam himself had seen the Young lady and her Grace and Swee Ness had made an impression on even his Case hardened sensibilities a thar ainu to no kind of us in Talkin about it a said he a it s he Man Natur.

A will buy a dozen blamed old shanties like that for you to Morrow if you tit few next Day All the neighbourhood knew that Simpson had come Back and Why he went away How the partner who bad defrauded and nearly ruined him years before had written him from Hia sick bed in his Refuge in Manitoba How he had made restitution How Simpson had been for months beyond the Region of mails and Telegraph How he had come Home and Ridden up the Valley behind Jack. A i did no to know you were ahead of me a he told him. Quot of course it was my horse you heard but i knew a Short Cut to the Mesa and turned off by it b it you were too Quick for me. Of. Yet. I know its All right. I would t Cross the Little girl any was. If she a willing. I am and if she a going to leave her old father. In a mighty glad she a going to have a Man to take care of her that a got keep Tab on the Cabman. The London cabby is Well known to be Good at demanding his a Pound of flesh a but his parisian counterpart is generally acknowledged to outdo him. The rapacity of both these worthies will be restrained by an automatic device which Cabman will now legally be obliged to carry. The number of revolutions of the wheels Are registered and these Are reduced to Miles the stoppages of the cabs Are duly recorded also the number of passengers. These facts Are All printed by the Little machine on slips of paper which May be withdrawn like the Ordinary a Bumble Bee stung Ike Williams of Catlettsburg ky., on the hand.

The Biros should not have food for Twenty four hours before killing. Killing is Best done by running a Sharp knife through the roof of the Mouth making a sufficient wound to bring the blood freely. Hang by the to and allow All the blood to escape. Do not remove the head feet crop or intestines. Pick the legs dry. And holding by the legs and head dip three times in water just below the boiling Point. Keep the head out of the hot water. If the head is dipped it Dis colors the comb and shrinks the Eves giving buyers the impression that the Bird has been sick. Remove All the feathers including pin feathers at once taking care not to break the skin and then a plump Quot by dipping for an instant into cold water. Hang up the fowl and allow it to get perfectly cold before packing. Dry picked poultry Sells better if the picking is properly done hut it is More difficult to do Well and takes More time. To dry pick properly the work should be begun immediately after the Bird is killed and while the blood is still flowing As after the body gets cold it is almost impossible to avoid tearing the skin. In packing the head May be placed under the Wing but the body and legs should be straightened out. Packages holding from 10 1 to 200 pounds sell most rapidly. The Birds would be parked tightly to avoid any slipping in the package. The Best method of picking ducks and geese is to steam them. If this is impracticable they May be dipped into very hot water the same As chickens and turkeys but must 1>0 kept in a trifle longer As the feathers Are More difficult to loosen. It does not to pick them alive for the Sake of saving the feathers As the Small profit derived from them is More than lost on the Sale of the Birds the result being so to inflame the skin As to greatly injure the Sale.
