Ayrshire breeders for the last fifty
years or more have been handicapped
In breeding because the standard of
excellence has lacked uniformity be
tween the three great breeding sections
for Ayrshire cattle, Scotland, Canada
and the States. The outlook for the
future seems much more hopeful, for
all three have practically united on one
common scale of points as the standard
o f excellence, and in future there
should be no wide difference between
Ayrshire» of the different sections. If
Ayrshire» are to be kept as one breed
and one general family, there must
be more attention paid to breedin-
after the pattern as laid down by the
different associations, and ;these asso

standard. There is uo reason why breed

Bob Hazard was a good uatured,
devil may care sort of fellow, whom
everybody loved. Ills lialr was flax,
his eye was robin’ s egg blue, and be
w ore a perpetual smile on his lips. He
looked so good that butter wouldn't
melt in bis moutb.
When the Spanish-Auierican war
broke out. Bob, Yvho was a member of
the national guard of bis state, went
with ids regiment to Cuba and fought
through the battles that resulted In the
capture of Santiago. He seemed Insen
sible to fear, and his companions said
o f him that he was too ¡lazy to worry
about getting shot.
Bob didn't get shot, but with that
luck which comes to reckless people

wounds, one where it went in and one
where it went out.
Hazard, not being able to handle a
musket during this time, had abtiu
dant leisure for mischief. Removing
tw o balls from cartridges, he sent one
to his best girl, with a letter in which
ho said that to her and her alone ho
gave the Spanish Bullet with which In-
bad been shot. The other he sent to
his other best girl, with a similar m e -
■age. He enjoiued each to keep the se
cret of his preference, since lie didn’ t
wish to appear to attach any impor
tance to his wound.
Now. the recipients. Miss Edith
Spencer and Miss Delia U a itt. wore
feminine young ladies.
While neither were in love with the
young soldier, both were proud of the
preference. Each knew that the other

This was the preliminary part o f a
conversation that led to the exhibition
o f tw o bullets, each with a polished
surface, which Is never found on one

nothing o f being sent through a man’s

they Y-owed that when Private Robert
Hazard returned he should explain
this strange proceeding and pronounce
upon the genuineness o f the bail that
had wounded him.
When the w ot ended, It virtually la

awaited him which would have strick
en terror into any man o f less bravery.
His regiment marched througli the
city from which it had departed with
flying colors and martial music. The
first communication he received after
feeing mustered out was a note from
Miss Spencer asking him to come and
wee how she had mounted the keep
sake he had sent her. He called that
evening and found Miss Spencer and
Miss Marsh together. On the table
was an open Jewel box that had held
a pair o f solitaire earrings, ami lu
place of the earrings were two bullets.
The expression on the faces o f the
girls was ominous.
“ Will you please,” said Miss Spencer,
“ tell us which o f these two bullet?
Boh looked at the leaden missiles
