We arrived here safely yesterday, and
having corralcd our herd ot six hundred
of "cow brutes" in the niagnlllccnt stock
pens of the International railway to
await the arrival of cars, Into which they
will be loaded for St. Louis. We arc
taking our ea-c as gentlemen of leisure
for the nonce. Our herderj have not yet
been paid oil', so that the town is com
paratively quiet. During the ill h e, I
witnessed a scene which will not soon be
effaced I rout my memory, and will try
and describe to you what a ttainpcilu of
six bundled head of Texas cattle Is like
conscious, however, of my inability to do
the subject justice. The day upou which
It occurred was as bright and warm a- u
June day with you; not a cloud was to
be teen. We were ridlngalong in nierr.v
mood, singing and shouting, with coats
ofl and necks barc.l to the breeze. The
cattle were .-omcwhat restless, nud this,
au old herder said, was a sure precursor
of a "norther ;" we laughed the croaker to
scorn and ridiculed his predictions of com
ing trouble. He had his revenge, however.
when at about tour o'clock iu the altcr
nooulic called ourattcnlion to the North,
and we saw the black clouds tilling up
and madly rushing across the clear blue
sky. Instantly the scripture quotation
"And the heavens shall bo rolled up
like a scroll," darted through my mind.
I can compare the sight to nothing else :
Inky black clouds in banks apparently as
high as a three story house chased each
other with the rapidity of thought, and
In less than ten minutes the whole
heavens wtr nvereaat nnd the wind was
mowing a gale as com as ice. w u .my
donned our coats and wrapped our blan
kets around us In a vain endeavor to
keep warm; It pierced through our
clothes like a knife and all our eflbrts
. The variation in the teni-
perature probably did not exceed twenty
degrees, but it was the suddenness of it
that stunned us. We did not havo much
time to think of ourselves as at the llr.-t
rush of the wiud our cattle were oil'; with
heads lowered and tails up they rau in a
bellowing mass toward a clump of
trees about two miles distant
seeking shelter from tho cutting blast.
Theu comineuced a raco camparcd to
which John Gilpin's ride was nothing.
Wild cattle, wild pony and wilder ranger

whoop la! of the herder are drowned Iu
the tbtiuder of hoofs. The brave little
pany presses 011 the flanks of the fugl

herd. The rein hangs loose ; Instinct and
the swaying of its rider alone guide the
movements of thu horse. The leader
must be reached and turned or the herd
will bo scattered and lost. If he will not

words to the herder when coupled with
the darkness ot the midnight storm ; a
tumble or single false step ot his pony

of the (lying herd. Sharing such danger

and the work of 11 month would have to
be done over again and some ot them wc
