FEEDER FOR STOCK
One of the disagreeable tasks In re
lation to the care of horses, cows or
other cattle is tbe necessity of arising
early and supplying them with feed.
This Is especially true with milk deal
ers, bakers and many others who are
compelled to get up an hour or two be
fore serving their route In order to
feed their horses. This la also the case
on Sundays with all drivers of teams.
Automatic time stock feeders are not
new to the trades, by any means, but
few are as simple as the one shown
In the Illustration. This Is so con
structed tbot the feed may be auto
matically released at a predetermined
moment by attachment to an alarm
clock and fed Into a trough or manger.
A chute, through which the food Is to
be passed, is shown here, with a
hinged door at right angles to the In
ner wall thereof, the door being con
nected with an arm which projects
through the wall of the chute. This
arm Is fastened to a spring held to a
pin In the outer wall of the chute. A
bracket supports a clock upon the
other side of the chute, the clock hav
ing an alarm attachment. The key
which winds the alarm apparatus Is
connected to e spring pressed bolt which
Is mounted In the wall of the chute

and designed to support the hinged
door when the same Is weighted down
with food. As the clock runs down
the cord withdraws the bolt, and when
the proper time Is reached the door Is
released and the food fulls down to tbe
manger. After the door Is relieved of
Its weight the spring will cause It to
resume Its normal position. This would
also be very useful In large establish

Pearl Buttons Destroyed.
"American destroys annually 17,
500,000 gross of pearl buttons," said
J. F. Robinson of Omaha, Neb., who
Is engaged In the manufacture of that
article of commerce. "There are In
the United States about fifty factories
that turn out dully 1,000 gross of but
tons at least. I should not be sur
prised If the average Is larger than
that but I am sure the figure Is tbe
Inside. What becomes of them Is an
other question. Some people save but
tons with the same iseul that a miser
saves coins, and so the consumption of
17,500,000 a year must arise from the
careless clusses who lose or throw
them away when they come off their
garments. Tbe Industry lg rapidly
growing, and the demand for the prod
uct Is such that all the manufacturers
are kept busy with their orders. It
Is, within the last dozen years that the
Industry of making pearl buttons from
mussel shells has become prominent
among the enterprises of the inland
rivers, but at coast cities tbe process
is an old one. Tbe Increase In the
number of ready-mude garments that
are sold Is partly responsible for the
Increase In the button Industry. When
shirts and other garments are bought
ready made there Is little use to save
the buttons, but In tbe olden days,
when the articles were made at home,
It meant something to save the but
tons from the old clothes." Louisville

RIDE QVER TEXAS PLAINS.
It GiTta On Exhilarating 8na
tion Horseback Trip.
"Did you aver take a ride over the
buffalo clover plains of Texas?" ask
ed a writer la tbe New Orleans Times-
Democrat "I remember on experi
ence that will stay with ma all my
life. It waj In Houston. I was young
and It waa Washington's birthday.
A friend Invited me to rid to his
ranch In the country. Wa started in
the morning. A light spring breeza
waa blowing; red and white roses
dangled from the balconies of the
bouses aa wa rode through the street
After leaving the city wa rode Into
the open. There was a sweet smell
from the earth, and our horses stretch
ed their necks and gave" themselves
up to the pleasure of motion. But
that waa not the best part The re
turn Is what remains particularly In
my memory. We passed the day go
ing over the ranch and looking at the
animals. After eating a dinner of the
finest fried chicken I bad ever tasted
In my life, and loafing for an hour or
two with cigars, wa mounted our
horses for the return home.
"The moon was out full. Aa wa
rode upon the plains, and lost sight of
all houses, I felt aa If I were In an
enchanted land. On all sides was a
vast sea of white moonlight Tbe
grasses made the waves. When we
walked our horses we could bear In
numerable little volcea singing a song
of praise. It was a sacrilege to talk.
Then when our horses became warm
ed up and urged by the additional
Impetus that they were returning to
the stables, we let them have rein.
and went at a swinging gallop over the
prairie. I don't know how my friend
knew which way to go. Ha waa In
the lead, and I followed him blindly.
To ma the motion of the horse, the
moonlight and the sounds of night,
the smell of the earth and the height
of the light-filled heavens constituted
an exhilaration which I had never
felt before nor felt since. The mem
ory of the ride will alwaya remain
with ma aa something distinct beau
tiful and enjoyable."
Compiled with tha Law.
In Chicago are certain boulevards
set apart for tbe use of pleasure ve
hicles only, from which all wheeled
appliances which appear to be used for
toll or profit are strictly excluded. At
tha intersection of two such driveways
one aunny afternoon stood a dapper
little park policeman In a new aprlng
uniform. Ha twirled a slender switch
idly In his white-gloved banda, and
appeared to be making up by aa as
sumption of importance all that he
lacked In alia.
Suddenly, as If he bad bobbed up
out of the ground, appeared a gigantic
laborer trundling a plebeian wheel
barrow. It Was an empty wheelbar
row, to be sure, but a wheelbarrow
none the less, which had been used
many a time In carrying brick and oth
er common things. For a moment tha
park policeman was stiff with horror
at this desecration of tbe boulevard.
Then with lordly tread he stepped out
and tapped tha workman easily with
tha switch, t
"Here, now, my man," ha aald.
"Nona of that yon know. Only pleas
ure vehicles allowed on tha drive.
You'll have to 'go down to tha next
street with that barrow."
The workman hesitated a moment
and then grinned broadly.
"Pleasure vehicles, eh?" he repeated.
"Well, there," and as easily as a oat
would pick up a mouse, he picked up
the policeman and deposited him in tha
barrow, "sit you there, then, my boy,
and we'll have 1 pleasure vehicle all
