Our young farmer friend, Charlie Miller, makes an awful test of the Record’s finding abilities. He wants us to find a two-year-old black horse colt, with little white in the face and one white foot, which strayed away last February, and has not since been heard of. He will pay well for information of the animal’s whereabouts.
