The Inst Big Hunter, the last Famous cout,
The last Indian Father who fought not to kill;
The last Brave Ranger to mark "down ana out."
The last of the Buffalos "Buffalo Bill."'
A Pair to Draw To.
A pair to draw to and a pair that draws; "Buf
falo Bill" and Duke. Here they are again. Wil
liam Frederick Cody of Cody, Big Horn County, Wyo.,
has been called an old man. Not a. bit of it! He is
only 60, and looks as fit as a fiddle, as sound as a
roach. Duke is 22. Duke is from Kentucky, Cody
from Iowa. Youthful eyes could see no finer sight
than the chestnut scout, showman, soldier, ranch
man, sitting his chestnut charger in the lime light
and saluting for the hundredth lime General Miles
and the rest of the congregation. The Colonel's
hair is just as silky as it was thirty years ago, when
he was a member of the Nebraska Legislature and
the cynosure of all observers. Nevertheless, there
arc those who swear he wears a wig. So did all of
our great-grand fathers.
Colonel Cody is well voiced. His 34,000th con
secutive form of opening the Wild West Show is
"Ladies and Gentlemen: Permit mo to introduce a
Congress of Rough Riders to the World!" This is
what he actually says and how he says it, as
nearly as the type can produce it: "Lay-ris. . an'
Gen-termen: . . . Permit me . .to incho-doos a
Cong . . of Rough Ri-duz ov . the Wurld!
Duke's Narrow Escape.
Duke is known by sight to most of the children
of the United States. He is the last horse Colonel
Cody rode in battle. Last fall, in that railroad
slaughter of equines in North Carolina Duke was
berthed aboxxt the middle of the second car from the
engine. Dad, his mate, stood beside him and wan
so mangled that he had to be shot. Every other
horse in the car was killed, and in the darkness and
attendant excitement the entire congress of rough
riders, from Major Burke down, supposed that Duko
had gone to the happy hunting grounds of tho Blue
Grass, in company of the herd. When daylight came
he was seen in a nearby field, eating. No bones
were broken, but the horse suffered all winter from
tho shock, and for months has been in the hands of
the most expert massagist to be found in the United
Taking Him Home.
The horses of the Wild West winter in Coatesville,
Pa., and Duke was to be taken there at once. But
lie could not bear the sight of a railroad car. If led
near one he would break out in cold sweat, shivering
and quaking with dread. They housed him in the sta
tion, feeding him there for weeks, and one night
pushed a car on a siding, built an inclosed passago
"way from its door to that of the station and per
suaded him to walk on board. It is believed that ho
did not suspect the trick. At Coatsville he broke
away from his attendants and disappeared over tho
hills, to be found an hour later at the farm, standing
at the door of his owiustall. He now Beems to be as
good as new and will tour England and tho Conti
nent with the WildWesC
Killing Dad and the Rest.
Colonel Cody could not induce a man in the show to
shoot Dad, or hit him in the head with a club to put
tho beast out of misery, and had to hire a lot of
North Carolina darkies to administer the coup do
gi ace. The roughest among 1me Rough Riders becamo
a lot of old women at finding their favorite steeds
mangled. One Cossack, with just enough United
States vocabulary in him to swear violently, cried
over his horse, repeating aloud to Major Burke, with
ever-increasing emphasis as he held the brute's head
m his arms, his three dreadful "cuss" words, Whila
Dad was dying ho reached out his tongue to lick the
wound of a companion groaning with pain. These
hardened sinners of showmen moisten in more ways
than one when speaking of their faithful steeds.
Why Miles Came.
General Miles came over from Washington for three
reasons: First, to help out his friend Colonel
Cody; second, to see what green American range
horses could do in an emergency; third, to see the
show. Nate Salsbury had him, Frank Vanderlip,
Lieutenant Colonel Marion P. Masus and Senator
W. A. Clark at a symposium in the course of tho
evening. The subjects barred were these: Behead
ings, copper mines and City National expansion.
Senator WilliamA. Clark, with $123,000,000 to his
credit, walked up to Colonel Cody and, slapping him
violently on the shoulder, exclaimed in the breeziest
of Wild West ways: "Hello, Bill! IP are yer?" Tho
Copper Sultan met Cody years ago when the latter
was carrying out his contracts to feed the laborers
of the Kansas Pacific Railway on buffalo steaks.
In a year and a half Colonel Cody killed 4,280 head
of buffaloes and earned the sobriquet of "Buffalo
Bill." At that time Clark was peddling clocks and
studying water rights in the great Northwest. Tip,

Uncommon "Common Jury."
(From the London Mail.)
What is known as a "common" jury was em
paneled recently in Mr. Justice Bigham's Court.
It was really a most uncommon one.
Sixty-two jurymen named Clarke, or Clark,
answered to their names in the fifth court of the
King's Bench Division.
The amazing number of Clarks and Clarices
caused a loud laugh in court, and by way of select
ing just enough for a jury the clerk associate
called on "George Clark."
About twenty of the sixty-two gentlemen ans
wered to this Christian name, so the associate clerk
proceeded to select a few specimens, and a jury
was ultimately made up of tho following:
Benjamin Clark, plumber.
George Clark clerk.
George Clark clerk.
George Clark cleric.
John Clark, builder.
John W. C. Clark, manager.
Joseph C. Clark, ivory worker.
Thomas M. Clark, clerk.
George Clarke, stick dresser."
Stephen Clarice, furrier.
Swan Clarke, builder.
G. H. Clarkson.
This mass meeting of the Claries and the
Clarices was generally regarded as being a carefully-prepared
joke on the part of the Sheriff of
The whole panel hailed from the neighborhood
of Hackney. The only two remaining jurymen on
the panel not named Clark or Clarke were both
In Mr. Justice Grantham's court the other day
eleven Browns and one Browning occupied the jury
box. Have the Smiths ever made up a whole jury?
Origin of a Famous Expression.
(From Portland Oregonian.)
"My dastard uncle," said Hamlet, "has killed my
father. Let me consider a suitable punishment."
Just at that moment a 10, 20 and 30 actor came
out of the stage door of tho theatre across tho street
and hastened toward a neighboring sandwitch parlor.
"Aha!" muttered the astute prince, "I'll make
him sit through a melodrama!" aud suiting the ac
tion tx the word he proceeded to prepare for the
wretched king the most horrible torture known.
It was the dramatic critic who wrote tho show no
tice of that performance who originated the expres
sion, "There's something rotten in Denmark."
