THE BREEDS OF LIVE STOCK.
Nearly all the breeds of oattle
found in America have been brought
from Great Britain . None of them
have been greatly changed in this
country. Between some or them
there are great differences; others
closely resemble each other. All cat
tle make beef; all cows give milk:
but some breed9 ara especially bred
forthe one or the other purpose,
while others are almost equally
prized for both.
The Ayrshire is distinctively a milk
breed, producing a large quantity of
milk of average quality as lo richness.
The cows are small to medium in
size, with light heads and necks, and
the bodies growing wider us we go
back. The horns are of medium
length, usually turned upward and
inward. The color varies much;
sometimes nearly white, sometimes
reddish, brown or black; but almost
always more or less spotted. The
breed comes from the county of the
name, in southwestern Scotland. It
is not common in the western states.
The Channel Island breeds resem
ble each other and are valued chiefly
for their milk-giving and butter-making.
We hear of the Alderney, but
there are probably few of the breed
iu the United States. The Jersey
ranks second in number among the
improved breeds' in this country, and
among the very first in popularity,
as shown by the prices paid. It takes
its name from the largest of the
Channel Islands. The cows are
small, 800 to 000 being counted good
The form is slender and graceful,
the bones being fine. The head and
neck are usually light and the Body
is deep rather than broad; often it
is angular rather than well-rounded.
The horns are short; usually in
curved in the cow. The most com
mon color is fawn or fawa-and-whito.
Somo years ago there was. a great
prejudice against any white, and
black-tipped tails and feet were in
great demand. The nose should bo
black, with, a whitish or light fawn
ring around'the muzzlo
The Guernsey is larger and some
times coarser" than the Jersey, with
heavier bone and larger frame: the
color is more commonly broken; the
nose is often light colored. There is
little prejudice against light colors,
or white markings. Oftentimes a
cow of thw breed may bo mistaken
for a Jersey. They are not nearly so
numerous as the Jerseys, but aro
growing in favor, it being olaimod
that they give more and even richer
milk than the Jerseys; and surpass
them 111 value for beef.
The large black and white spotted
cows from North Holland and prov
inces adjoining are variously called
Holsteins, Friesian, Holland and
Dutch, the first namo being more
commonly used. This breed is of
large size, with fair form from a beef
making standpoint, although usually
rather flat in the sides and often
somewhat coarse in the bone. The
horn is short and slender in the cow,
the hair is rather short and may be
all white or nearly all black. The
reputation of the breed rests chiefly
on the large quantity of milk given,
in which it is unsurpassed. The
milk is not so rich as that of some
other breeds, but great quantities of
butter hare been made from the
milk of somo cows of the breed.
Cattle of this breed are being im
ported in large numbers, and sell at
The Devon takes its name from
Devonshire in the southern part of
England. Is is small to medium in
size, of a beautiful deep red in color,
with fairly long, slender horns in the
cow; rather thick and long in the
bull. The form is among the best for
beef production; the cattle are activo
and hardy, and the beef is of the best
quality, while many of the cows are
oxcellent milkers; yet the breed is not
numerous or popular in this country,
certainly not in the groat cattle rais
ing states. Want of. size is the most
common criticism, although it s
charged they do not mature so early
as do some other breeds.
The Hereford, from the English
county of the same name, is one of
the oldest of the breeds of cattle and
within a few years Las become one of
the most popular, great numbers hav
ing been brought to this country and
sold at high prices. The color is
good red, with white face and some
white on shoulder and belly, although
there is occasional decided variation
from this marking. The size is large,
the legs are short, but the body is
long, thick aud deep. Tho horn is
rather long, and the head is some
what heavy. The cattlo are hardy;
claimed to be very sdperior as
graziers; the meat is of excellent
quality. As a breed high rank for
dairy purposes cannot be claimed, but
there are many exceptions.
Three polled or hornless breeds
have attracted much favorable atten
tion in this country of" late years.
The Angus or Aberdeen, from Aber
deenshire in northern Scotland, is one
of these. Black in oolor, with rather
fine hair; a neat head and a well
rounded, long, yet compact body,
carried on short, fine limbs, this
breed is always attractive. It pro
duces beef equally to any in quality.
As a dairy breed it has not much rep
utation. It is claimed to be especially
adapted for use in improving other
and inferior breeds. Jhero have been
large importations within the last
three years, and the breed has been
well distributed throughout the west
The Galloway, from southwestern
Sootland, resembles Hh'e Angus in be
ing black andhornlesSj but is rougher
and rather coarser in form, with long
often fjarse and curling hair. Much
the same claims are made for it as for
the Angus, with the addition that it
is more hardy, although perhaps ?!ox
er in arriving at maturity.

The Short-horu.s, formerly often
called Durhams, came from north
eastern England, aud are the most
numerous and most widely distributed
breed in this country, or in the world.
The size is of the largest; the color is
either red, white or a mixture of either
of these in any proportion. The horn
is short and comparatively light, but
no more so than in some other breeds.
Although valued chiefly as a beef
making aniinal, Short-horns as
a breed are good milkers, but
less attention has been given
of late years to their dairy
qualities than formerly. No cat
tle are more attractive than the best
short-horns. The body is long, the
back straight and broad, the ribs
well sprung, the rump straight and
well filled ont. As a rule short-horns
aro taller than cattlo of mo3t othor
breeds, aud not infrequently they are
subject to the criticism of being too
long in the leg. The head and neck
are generally light and well formed.
The beef is good and tho milk is of
full average richness. No other
breed has had anything like the in
fluence on the cattle of the chief beef
producing states as the short
horn. . A few cattlo of other breeds are
owned in this country. Swiss cattlo
are of largo size: often a mouse color,
sometimes whitespotted, and with a
Jersey-like ring around the black I
muzzle. They are well spoken of both
for the dairy and for beef, but have
not been generally tried in this conn-
trv. Tho Snsser mnv b nrnnrntnlvi

'WHAT YOU 3HGUT CAJ.L NERVE."
"I saw an exhibition of what you
might call nerve, the other day, up in j
jweiavrare connty,' said JJeacon Unas
.N. iJeau of the public
up there on business last
Harpersfielu , and an acquaintance i
took me out to fish for pickerel
throtiL'h tho ice. On our wnv to the'
pond we came to a couple of men
knew one of the men, and stopped to
talk with him. The other man kent
on chopping. He had made but two
or three strokes with his ax when it
flew off the handle. The sharp blado
whizzed through the air, passed close
to my friend's head, and, striking the
other chopper, whose name was Ha
gar, cut hi3 nose off close to his face
as clean as if it had been done with
a razor. The man who had lost it put
his hand up to his face in a startled
sort of way, and looked down at tho
severed nose as if he could hardly be
lieve his eyes. "When the full force
of the situation strnckhim,he looked
at his fellow chopper with an expres
sion of surprise and deep injnrv on
his face, and said:
" 'Well, Jack, you're a d nice'fol-
low, ain't ye Y
"Hagar then stopped and picked ur
his nose and pressing his handker
chief to his bleeding face, astounded
both my friend and myself by resum
ing the subject upon which they had
been talking which was the making
of a contract for some chopping as
it notning oi consequence had occur
red to interrupt it. My friend, how
ever, started the other chap to the
village after a doctor, and wanted to
take Hagar home at once on bis buck
board. Hagar wouldn't hear to this
and said he would cut across to his
cabin through the woods and wait for
the doctor, and he started off" without
any apparent hurry, carrying his nose
in his hand.
"When we returned at night we
went two miles out of our way to in
quire after Hagar. We found him
chopping up firewood in front of the
cabin. There was a bandage around
hi3 face. When we asked him if the
doctor had seen him, he said:
" 'Yes, he's been here. He stuck
the nose ou in its old place and bound
it there, and said he believed it would
grow fast again, as ho had known of
such things happening. Say, I came
blame near getting mad at Jack when
that ax flew off to-day. He's always
cutting up somo dido or other.'
"Then we drove back to Harpers
field. I had a letter to-day from my
friend. He had just come from a
visit to Hagar. Ho says the man is
getting along, and that the nose will
grow fast again sure. Now, these are
facts, and I tell you thatHagarstrnck
me as giving an exhibition of what
you might call nerve." Netr York
