In his former books "The log of the cow-boy" and "A Texas matchmaker" the hero, Tom Quirk, told the story of cattle on the drive and on the range, and he here relates his experiences in finding a market for a herd. At the close of the Civil War the need for a market for the surplus cattle of Texas was as urgent as it was general. Texas did not mature the cattle into marketable form, but after they had been driven north and double-wintered they became very valuable. The part the railroads played in solving the problem what to do with the immense herds of Texas cattle in the early 70's is vividly brought out.

The fundamental principles upon which life insurance is based and the manner in which these principles are applied in practice, are illustrated by the building up of an imaginary company. Three facts underlie all life insurance: 1. All life insurance costs money to the company that grants it; 2. This cost can be accurately determined; 3. That this cost need not be taken for granted, but can be readily grasped by any person of ordinary intelligence. The morey secured by life insurance in the world to-day amounts to almost $25,000,000.000. The author is secretary of Equitable Life Insurance Company and not to be confounded with the author of "The Chadwick case."
