IMPORTANCE OF PROPER CARE
FOR HORSE OFTEN OVERLOOKED
Most Dangerous Time to Give Animal Water Is When He Has
Cooled Down From Hard Work and Has Partaken

THEIR MOST JOYOUS MOMENT
i Of the Trio, Probably Representative
Redfield Had the Beat Occa-
sion to 8mile.
The talk in one of the cloak rooms
of congress turned to the thought of
the happiest moments In one's life.
Senator Bailey said his came the day
he wore his first pair of trousers. And
Paul Howland of Ohio declared his
big moment of Joy was when he was
permitted once to drive a chariot in
a pony and dog show parade.
Representative Redfield, who is a
wise chap, even if he does hail from
Brooklyn, said it was when he was
going to school and trying to master
long division. Three or four aisles
over from where he sat a boy yawned.
It was not an ordinary yawn, but one
of such genuine expression of feeling
toward things in general that it at-
tracted Redfleld's attention. He was
fortunate in having a paper wad right
at hand, ready for any emergency,
and he aimed this at the boy's caver-
nous mouth. The wad went right
square into the goal and—well. Fourth
of July fireworks are tame to the
stunts that boy did in the next few
He says he almost smiled once on
ship board when the vessel gave a
lurch and threw a platter full of
beefsteak, gravy and all, over the
open-faced shirt front of a pompous
passenger across the table.
Excellent Farm Draft Horses.
A horse should be watered before
feeding, and never given a large, quan-
tity of water after a meat for the
simple reason that the water will wash
the food out of the stomach before
stomach digestion has tiAen place,
and the food will not be well prepared
for absorption; and besides it is some-
times the cause of colic.
There is a popular idea that a warm
horse should not be allowed to drink
and, unlike a great many other popu-
lar Ideas, there is a little truth in it.
If you water a warm horse in the or-
dinary way, letting him drink all that
he will, you are likely to have a foun-
dered horse on your hands. This is
especially so If, At the time, the horse
Is fatiguod. Nevertheless, it is always
safe to allow him from six to ten swal-
lows, no matter how warm he is. If
this be given on going into the stable
and he be allowed to stand and eat
hay for an hour and is then offered
water, he will not drink early so
much as he would had none been
The danger is not in the first swal-
low, as we often hear it asserted, but
in the excessive quantities he will
drink if not restrained.
John Splan, the great trainer,
"As to water, I think that a horse
should have all that he wants at all
times. A man says: 'Why; will you
give your horse water before a race?'
Yes, before the race, in the race, and
after the race, and any other time
that he wants to drink. When I say
give your horse all the water, he wants
before the race, I do not mean that
you shall tie him in a warm stall
where he cannot get a drink for five
or six hoflrs on a hot day, and then
take him to the pump and give him all
that he wants. What I mean is to
give him water often and, in that way,
he will only take a small quantity at
After long, continuous exertion the
system Is gTeatly depleted of fluid.
Nature calls for Its replacement, and
this Is the cause of a thirst which
Is so intense that, If the animal is not
restrained at this time, he may drink
much more than he needs.
The custom, almost universally fol-
lowed, of giving the morning meal be-
fore water, is not very objectionable,
either theoretically or practically. At
this time there is no depletion of fluid,
consequently the horse is not very
thirsty and does not drink rapidly or
excessively and apparently very little
evil results from this method. How-
ever, the writer much prefers that the
horse should have an opportunity to 1
drink what is good for him before the 1
Personally, I much prefer keeping
horses, both summer and winter, in
an open shed, with a large water tank
in the yard, to tying them by the
head in a barn.
Not only In giving water to horses
must care be exercised but in every
Many a good driving horse has his
years of usefulness cut short by being
left in the hands of some person who
does not know how to take care of a
horse or does not care what happens
to the horse that happens to come in-
to his hands.
One of the most common ways of
injuring a driving horse is by driving
him hard in cool weather, and when
the horse has been brought into a
sweat, leaving him uncovered and ex-
posed to cold winds or to drafts in
It is seldom necessary to drive a
horse so hard on a cool day that he
will be in a sweat. In warm weather
It is different, as the horse, then
sweats with little exertion.
When the horse has been driven un-
til he is covered with foam and sweat,
he should be taken Into a stable, rub-
bed down with whisps of hay or piece
of rough cloth, and then blanketed.
The. neglect of such precautions has
resulted in many a horse catching a
cold that has proved serious*
Driving is a science itself, and there
are many mature people who have not
learned how to dlrve a horse. They
have no idea as to the amount of work
he is able to perform without lessen-
ing his vitality.
It mus#be remembered that a horse
as well as a man, is limited as to what
he can do.

ECZEMA DISFIGURED BABY
"Our little boy Gilbert was troubled
with eczema when but a few weeks
old. His little face was covered with
sores even to back of his ears. The
poor little fellow suffered very much.
The sores began as pimples, his little
face was disfigured very much. We
hardly knew what he looked like. The
face looked like raw meat. We tied
little bags of cloth over his hands to
prevent him from scratching. He was
very restless at night, his little face
"We consulted two doctors at Chi-
cago, where we resided at that time.
After trying all the medicine of the
two doctors without any result, we
read of the Cutlcura Remedies, and
at once bought Cuticura Soap and
Ointment. Following the directions
carefully and promptly we saw the
result, and after four weeks, the dear
child's face was as fine and clean as
any little baby's face. Every one who
saw Gilbert after using the Cuticura
Remedies was surprised. He has a
head of hair which Is a pride for any
boy of his age, three years. We can
only recommend the Cuticura Reme-
dies to everybody." (Signed) Mrs. H.

of the famous "liberator," complained
in Chicago about the way Italian wois-

advantage of his female employes, I

HARD FOR THE HOUSEWIFE.
CREAM AND MILK

for Their Carelessness as
Price Paid for the
The education of dairymen in the
way of producing good cream and
milk is progressing. Some' of the
large creameries, particularly those
of the west, are paying for cream ac-
cording to its real value and are care-
fully grading it.
Time was under sharp competition
when the creameries took all kinds of
cream Just bb it came and paid the
same price for good, bad and indiffer-
ent It was not long before the
creameries found out that this did
not pay and now many of them are
separating the cream and grading it
according to condition. For instance,
number one consists of septR-ator
cream which Is delivered twice a
week in winter and three times a
week in summer. This must be rea-
sonably sweet and In good condition
and test at least 30 per cent butter
Cream graded as number two In-
cludes all hand separator cream de-
livered not le^s than once a week In
winter and twice in summer. It must
, be reasonably clean, In good condition
and test not less than 20 per cent.
In butter fat. The lowest grade, num-
ber three, includes all gravity cream
and all hand separator cream which
tests lees than 20 per cent. This
grade also Includes all cream that Is
In poor condition even If It should test

ed some system of this kind Ion* ago
and It Is their fault largely that they
have not been able to produce better

creamery butter on the market is
mighty poor stuff and It comes from
mixing good and bad cream.
Farmers are not so much to blue
for their carelessness, as they have
been paid as much for poor cream a?

did not offer any Inducement to send
good sweet, clean cream to market
and to send it often. Now that many
of the big creameries have started
into this campaign of education the
farmer who produces the best cream
will have the advantage over the care

should have, as it puts a premium on

A northern visitor in the south tells
the following story to illustrate the
taciturnity of the southern negro.
He had asked Steve, a typical darky

cerning a certain plantation, and to
each the negro gave the invariable re-
ply of "Yahs, sah "
"Steve," asked the somewhat exas-
pefcted northerner, "don't you say
anything but 'Yahs, sah'? Can't you
say 'No. sir?'"
The negro blinked his eyes indolent-
ly for a moment and replied. "Yahs,
The best authorities on the Arabian
horse claim there never was a really
pure one of that breed that was spot-
ted or calico in color. Even the cir-
cus men. however, have not nearly so
much use for the skewbald horse as
they once had. The small supply fills
their demand. They find that horses
of the draft breeds pull their wagons
better, while for ring uses the tougher
bone and sinew of the thoroughbred
or trotter recommend them. Still
some attractions die bard and a few
spotted freaks are always to be found
beneath every big canvass. The
Arabian horse may briefly be describ-
ed as a thoroughbred on a small scale.
There are many line specimens of the
\breed In this country but more In
England. It Is difficult to get really
good specimens out of the Sultan's do-
mains. Not only Is their exportation
prohibited by imperial decree, but
rivalry among the sheiks of the no-
madic Arabians which own the best
bands Is so keen that good stallions
can hardly be bought at first hands
