HOUSE, FARM AND GARDEN.
We InvW emrnnitntrstlnti from alt twnne whnsre
iiitortiAiu insltcra properly linlimirlnic to tnw ae-
Ttie Texas. Cattle Prince.
A uiragih that M r. King, of TexiiH,
the Urgent owner of enttlo In the world,
hns lately iwtit 80,(H)0 rattle to market
and ttmt seventy lierdnman wore re
quired to cure for them, lias called atten
tion to Mr. King's career, which la a
most remarkable one.
TIki name of this Texas millionaire,
wyg the (!olumtus, Git., Enquirer,
Ulchard King. The river men call him
"Mftck." He was born In New York,
and about the yetr 1840, came from
Pittsburg to the Chattahoochee river as
Btewnrdon the steamboat Tttllapoona.
We are told thnt In those days, and years
after, the average life of steamers on our
river was three to four years, and that
it was customary for the captains, who
reHlded in the West, to carry their bouts
to Plttslwrg for the summer for repairs,
and return in the fall. They received
enough freight on the round trip to pay
expenses. It was the era of large float
ing palaces,flide-wheclcre,now superseded
by light draught stern-wheelers. There
were no railroads. Everything went to
Apa!achicxIa,and river men made barrels
Mr. King in the position of steward
plied the river several years. One
gentleman remembers lie was second
cook in 1841. Later he went to Tampa,
Florida, and in a short time he was
engaged in service on Government boats.
Returning to Columbus, he become
striking pilot under Captains Charlie
Brockway and Wingate. Altogether ha
was on our rivers some seven or eight
years In every subordinate positions.
About the middle of 1840 he, with Mr.
John Pealey and others, went to Texus,
and he became a pilot on the Rio Grande,
on the steamer Convettc, commanded
by Captain Kennedy. Engaging in
speculation soon made him a partner.
He bought a ranclic, and the property
increasing year by year, he now counts
his stock by the hundreds of thousand
and his possessions by millions. He
owns a magnificent residence in Western
Texas, and miles of the best land In the
Htate. Ho continues as a steamboat
The poor steward of thirty" years uko
is among the moneyed princes of llie
land. Fact is more marvellous than
fiction. He has now a large family, and
is giving hi children the best of educa
tions. Mr. King is very kind, friendly
and generous to his friends of the " days
of yore." One visited Texus since the
war, and he gave hlnfimtf u fine steam
boat, and all he entertains with a hospi
table welcome. They still call him
His wealth Is estimated from two to
He wrote one of his friends since the
war that he had just finished building a
fence 40 miles In length, and that it cest
him $1,000 a mile. Those who know
say cattle Increase in value one-third
Here is a man of brilliant success.
When on our river he was not noted for
special economy, but had his fun like
the "other boys," and sent his money
as freely. It is one of those Instances
where brains and pluck see the oppor
tunity, take advantage of it, roll up
their sleeves, go in and win. The open
ing was Texas, the time the Mexican
war, the man found both and found
there was millions in it. He partly,
though, drifted into enormous luck.
How to Color Butter.
The best coloring for butter is u good
mess of corn chopped with cut hay. My
butter Is a rich yellow all the year
round from this food, and I have no
Alderney or any other funcy stock, but
common cattle, which give an Abundant
supply of milk and butter: good food is
the secret. If farmers feed on dry fod
der and straw, and want yellow butter,
they must use what some of my Alder
ney friends do a small quantity of
annatto, costing ten cents an ounce,
enough for several hundred tound of
butter. Dissolve in a little warm cream;
add a few grains of soda, which develops
the peculiar yellow principle of all the
coloring mutter for butter.
Do not Allow the Frogs to be Pared.
The frog of the foot of every horse is
the natural suport of the foot, ar d
should never be cut away except to
remove the' rough edges which occasion
1I.V Pear from common wear. At a
late meeting of the farriers and horse
slioers in Wilmington, Del., there was a
fcreat deal said in condemnation of the
maimer in which horses are shod,
especially in the rural districts. A
lecturer, a veterinary surgeon (according
to the New York Herald), wit) that
"the frojj of the foot was often pared
away ho itrtMJeally to make a neat job
that the tendon or muscle that extended
down the leg, over what Is known as the
pulley hone, anil gave the foot ils mo
tion, was often injured, and then the
hofse would be weak In the legs, and
blunder. He severely characterized the
habit of burning the hoof with a red hot
shoe to make It fit, and said there ought
to be a law passed to hang any blacksmith
who would use red hot shoes In this way.
The shoes should be fitted to the shape
of the foot, rather than the foot fitted to
