To sail some day to my heart's content!

The dark, Cerce fronts of the icebergs tall.
And gather the grapes, as a beggar alms,
From vinos on some Spanish convent's

"Yes, we both will sail fiom this town of

And wept that I could not follow him.
And I can not say that the palms are there,

And stronger arms, when ho went

THE WIDOWS SECRET.
-I don't think that you treat him right,"
said the rosy little widow to the dressmaker
who was fitting her trim figure to a silk
gown of tho color of -moon upon tho lake,"
and at the saino time holding hr head back
and a trifle to ono side, lest her tears should
drop thereon. "I don't think women know
how to treat their husbands."
"You must be expert in the matter," re
sponded Mrs. Fittem, "seeing this is tho

"Oh, that's a socret"
Mrs. Fittem opened her eyes wide, and
"Yes, indoed! I have found it works ad
mirably with three husbands, and no doubt
it will work just as well with tho fourth."
"Bles my heart!" exclaimed the di ct
maker, dropping the cord sbo was covering
to put tho flounce on with, and an ill-tilt
guisod horror on her face.
"Oh, I didn't kill ray threo husbands.
They were dotingly fond of mo to tho last,
and left me well provided for."
"Do tell mo your secret, ma'am," and tho
expectant, not to say painful hopo, bright
ened her wan face.
"It isn't much, Mrs. Fittem, and ret it is
a secret, and its application has been, as it
were, disastrous in my case. I nm sure I
never expected it"

"Quite the contrary; they lived along ns
if loth to go."
"Poor critters! I should have thought yoo

"I did, indeed!" and tho pretty woman
preparing to wed her fourth husband wept
at the memory of tho tbrea
"Do toll mo all about it," persisted the
oilier, witu a look not sympathetic. "Your
tears don't tocm to dim your haudsomo
"I don't know about that I never
thought about that but, Mrs. Fittem, first
and last, I have cried a great deal."
"Perhaps you had a reason unknown to
tho world, ma'am. Hut I want dreadfully
to know bow you managed it"
Our widow was n sort of Widow Wadley,
easily beguiled to tears or smiles, and the

"My third husband was all sentiment, and

"Patiently!" cried h;r hearer. "It must
have been delightful"
"Yes. When he called me pet, I had an

"It seems to me that you let them have

Far from Exciting Dogs.
This is a fine sheep country about hare,
and the principal ranch on Calamity creek
is said to bo the largest in the ttate. I don't
know the exact number of sbcp owned by
the proprietor of this ranch, but it must run
up into tbe hundreds of thousanda Twenty
years ago he was a bankrupt wool merchant,
in feeble health; to-day he is a ruddy-faced,
hale and hearty man of 70, whoo check is
good for tlOOfl-jQ any day. With an
original plant of 53 ewes, his fiock
has steadily increased to its present
proportions and they literally roam
on a thousand hills. Sheep re
quire a good deal cf care and attention and
every man who undertakes sheep raising is
not successful at it A man who invests in
horned cattle will get rich in spito of him
self. It requires a peculiar sort of business
sagacity to manage f-heco and make the in
vestment a paying one. Out here thay are
principally Mexicans, although necessity
forces a few white men to turn to the Lud
ncss temporarily as a means of livelihood.
They nerer stay long at it, however. There
is an excruciating monotony about sheep-
nerding which causes a white man to wish
he had never been born after a few months'
experience. Now that tbe railroad has been
put through a great many big sheep men
are importing Chinamen from California to
take the place of the Mexicans, who require
a great deal of watching.
THE MEXICAN SIIEEP-HZRDER.
The wants of a Mexican sheep-herder are
few. His ratioa is a half peck of corn
meal, a handful of salt and a double hand
ful of cbilies per day. With this humble com
missariat be will keep up life. His idea of
luxury is an occasional dram of mescal or
aguaudiento and plenty of ccra husks and
tobacco, out of win- h he manufactures that
indispensable ac "calory to Moxican woJ
being, the ciaro. A Mexican usually en
gages in sheep-herding at a tender age and
once began rarely relinquishes it A Mex
ican is conservative and content with the
established order of things. They have
made no progress in 2j0 years. This fact
makes them good sheep-herders. Conserva
tism and lack of progress are prime re
quisites in a sheep-herder. After a year's
faithful apprenticeship at sheep-herding a
Mexican boy has the trade learned and is
ready to peon himself for life. He usu
ally does. I have known a Mexican herder,
after twenty-five years' faithful service, to
die as many hundred dollars in debt to tho
man whoso flock he has carefully tended
for a quarter of a century. That is where
Wo will suppose, by way of illustration,
that a practical herder Las been engaged to
run a flock, and in the early monun?, as
the first gray streaks of dawn appear in the
eastern sky he sallies forth to take charge
of his wooly flock, who aro just beginning
to awake and leate their Iwdding-place. If
he is a Mexican, be looks extremely pictur
esque in his bright blue jacket, with its
double row of silver buttons, w bich, by the
way, aro not for use, but solely for orna
ment, for a Mexican never buttons his
jacket, o!so he wou'd hido Lis gaudy calico
shirt On his nether limbs nro leggings of
leather or buckskin, to protoct his legs from
the sharp thorns through which he will bo
forced to march. These are kept In place
by a crimson, orange or blue sash, over
which is buckled a broad bolt full of car
tridges. On his head is ths inevitable som
brero, with its ornamentation of gold and
silver laca If he is a sensible man, his
serapo will be tied over one shoulder and
under the opposite arm and he will carry o
Winchester rifle and a sharp butcher knife.
THE HEEDEB WMS OX DCTV.
As the sheep begin to move off bo saun
ters slow ly along behind tbem, keeping a
sharp lookout for stragglers. Sheep do not
travel fa,t, but they keep moving. At
meridian they will begin to feed back to
ward tho bedding-place. There the herder
will eat his humble dinner of tortillas and
chili, washed down by a draught of water,
if bo is fortunate enough to be in the vicin
ity of a spring or water hole. About sun
down tbe sheep will reach their camp and
begin to select beds for the night The
herder has a rude shelter near by. He
builds himself a fire and cooks his tortillas.
Possibly he may have killed a quail or a
jack rabbit during the day. If so, he makes
a savory soup. Tbei be smokes his cigaro
and walks around the fiock to see that none
aro missing. It all is woll he returns to his
camp and, rolling himself in his serapc, lies
down. He may have a good night's sleep
and he may not A careful herder will be
aroused if a single sheep moves and will im
mediately rise up to soo what is tho matter.
If a bear or cougar or tiger-cat is lurking
about be will hunt for the varmint and
either kill him or frighten him away.
Above all things he must guard against a
stampede, for if the ..mid sheep once get
started there is no stopping them the herd
would become scattered, many would be
lost and the herder would be charged up
with tho missing sheep.
In the lambing season his duties aro more
arduous and ho is often up all night Then
he must watch for thj appearance of "scab"
or any of the other countless diseases to
which sheep am subject and report to the
captain, who makes known tha fact through
the regular channel to the ranch superin
tendent If it is the scab tbe sheep are
driv en up to the ranch and run through a
dip. 1 helped dip a lot of sheep once. It is
hard work and far from exciting. In fact,
everything pertaining to sheep is like tho
foolish animals, tamo and uninteresting.
TLe sheep are sheared once a year, usually
in May. This is the sheep man's harvest
and tbe big pile of wool which rewards hlni
represents tbe profits of tbe business.
Some of tho herders havo dog dog3 pe
culiar to tho frontier, with uioro or less
wolf blood in their veins. They are a surly
and unsocial brute and far from handsome.
They are susceptible, howovcr, of a high de
gree of education and their sagacity in the
matter of tending sheep is something
marvelous. I hav o known degs that would
herd 2,000 sheep, unaided, and never loo an
animal. Tbe sheepmen opposj dogs. They
say it makes the herders lazy and careless.
They neglect their duty and depend upon
the judgment and sagacity of the dog to run
things. Texas Cor. Philadelphia Times.

plcco of architecture Is a Swiss chalet in a
closely built city street. Another pointed
rule is to preserve tho salient features of a
landscape: a lawn with easy, circuitous ap
