The 'Texas Cattle Herder.
The herder is a character. He is be
gotten of, a necessity, as was the army
bummer. He is sent to fulltil a mission":
and that inissiou 'hcrdhf steers,''
no one who ha-i ever seen him can for a
moment doubt. His pedigree is as
much a matter of doubt as that of his
steers. His relationship to the gentle
cowherd of the storv-books awl the
pastoral poets is certainly very remote.
The cowhearer of the books is depicted
as a mild-mannered young man with
melancholy air, lolling about in the
shade, reading his Testament or the
'Sorrows of Wertcr;'' lying on his
back on the velvet turf and counting
the thistle-downs sailing through the
blue-sky overhead, or walking hand-in-

Love for the G-raceltss. '
That certain class of middle-nged
unmarried philosophers, whose arreat
enjoj'inent it is to sneer at all of hu
man nature's most cherished preten
sions of ennobling sentiment and com
mon sense, derive endless aid and
comfort from what is unquestionably
a very strong and frequently devel
oped tendency of the mortal'licart to
bestow its signal devotion upon the
most graceless objects. Mothers are
forever doting upon scapegrace sons,
in apparent preferment to their dutiful
and steadv brothers ; the prodigal, af

neglected home correspondence, re
turns tit iat in rags to the homestead
to be almost Miflocatcd bv the cares&cs
and bounties of the hitherto least dem
onstrative of sires; and multitudes of
instances can be cited to prove that
the heroically faithful wife is very
often the particular prize of the mos't
contemptible of husbands. Here is a
recent newspaper storv to the point :
borne time in 1870 there were married
at Auburn, in this state, a voting man
of the weakest possible moral charac
ter and a young woman immeasurably
his superior in that and all other re
spects. Tor about a year the purer,
better spirit restrained the grosser and
lower from any overt act of wirk-nil-
ness, but after that the husband began
to show his natural traits, and entered
upon a vigorous campaign for the
breaking of his wifoV heart. Xot
achieving this result with satisfactory
pced; lie exercised a portion of hfs
abilities in that line against society in
general, and at last made law itself so
actively his enemy, that thcbetterimrt
of valor inspired him to 11 y before it.
Leaving town hastily by night, he also
left his wife to bear her loss a- best she
could. And she mourning him as
many an honest, loval husband, dving
in the harness for Ids wife and chil

awhile to be sure that she was reallv
deserted, and then announced that she
would follow and reclaim 'the wan

what little money she could gain from
a hasty sale of all the property belong
ing to iter, tne uevotea woman, deaf to
all remonstrances and appeals, started
on her weary way. She was able to
ascertain that he had joined a band of
negro minstrels ; and upon such indefi

town to town, through Detroit, Chi-
The distance between im
post and Santa Fe was over three hun
dred miles, aud to facilitate matters I
was ordered to survey a new and short
er route cutting off about seven miles.
A company, numbering eighty men,
was detailed for the purpose ; and, as
the courc led partly through a wood
ed rcgion,a considerable squad was re
quired to act as ax-men. Three or
four lively black-and-tan terriers ac
companied the coiimuuuL affording no
little amusement by their activity in
snapping up unwary gophers, fats,
mice, ami other varments. The abor
igine, who frequently honored us with
their presents, claiming to be ''Good
Injun mc," were greatly pleased at
those performances. On "a certain oc
casion, one stalwart fellow, who spoke
a few words of English said to me : I

"Yes," I replied "they arc good

"Certainly ; it i because their cars
and tails arc trimmed that they get
around so lively as thev do."
"Another ! Me get good dog ; cut 'ura
"Yes, bring your dog ; I'll have him
fixed for you."'
Xext day. my Navajo friend appeared
with a small, blackludian lice, sporting
a long tail, and cars to correspond. Un
rolling this precious quadruped frm
his blanket, he signified a desire to
have the job done without delay : so 1
calleu two men and bade one liolu the
dog while the other docked his tail
with an ax. This did not suit redskin,
who refused to trust his favo.itc to the
tender mercies of a savage white man,
and preferred to perform the operation
himself. I therefore ordered one ol the
men to hold the dog's tail over a con
venient log, Miiilc the other held his
head and forcpaws. All being ready,
the Indian seized, an ax, but instead of
using ti as any' other person M'ould
have done, he SM'ttng the blade high
above his head M'ith both hands, as if
the object to be separated required his
Miiolc strength. Just then the soldier
who held the tail gave it a sudden pull,

As to where or Mhcn he M'as born, or

had a babyhood and a bovhood, but we
have no proof of those facts. Our first

of manhood. M'hcn he presents himself
to us a full-Hedged herder. He is usual

the Rothschilds' by saying- that they
uuver take into their employment anv
person Miio has been unsuccessful in
the affairs of life, and that the fact of
any man having failed iu an undertak
ing is in itself an absolute bar to his
entering their service. We do not
know whether this statement be true
or ficticious, but if true, it does not
prove that the Rothschilds have adopt
ed the only Miso course of action iu
this matter. For example, the great
NeM'York millionaire, and a man of
business, A. T. Stewart, has for a
quarter oi a century carried out a pol
icy exactly opposite to that attributed
to tne Jtothschilds. Stewart has al
ways beeuju the habit of taking into
his employ men M'ho had previously
failed in business "on their own ac
ontJ lie has probably at this time
no less than One .hundred of these mer
chants in his service in various- capac
ities at home and abroad. Most of
them are men of middle age, but many
are even older than that. He considers
them the most valuable and faithful of
his subordinates, and acknowledges
how much thev have done to build up
his immense interests. He not onlv
gets the benefit of their experience and
knoMiedge. but manv of them have
been the mea?iSi)f bringing to him a
large amount of business through their
mercantile connections and acquaint
ances. Some people have said that
SteM-art's establishment is a hospital
for these broken-down merchants, hut
he certainly knows how to turn his
hospital to a profitable account. He
often takes in men Miio, before their
failure, had becu his sharpest competi
tors. Twenty years ago the great silk
house of Howeu & McXaniee M'as start
ed as a rival to Stewart, but failed in
1860. Rom'cii M'as young enough to trv
again, and has at last got rich through
the Independent newspaper; but 3Ir.
SteM-art took McXanice into his whole
sale establishment and kept him there
until his death, a short time ago.
There is no doubt that Stewart under
stands what he is about.

"No, I never smoke." Well." said
the joker, "I would like to accomodate

"Xo, sir, I am supertendenl of tht

with tears jn his voice and eves too,
"you shall have it, and three times the

at one of the principal magazines of St.
