From timo immemorial tho
wild and woolly Buffalo, the ono

Western prairie, has furnished
thomes for literary minds to

Many differences exist bo
tweon tho "Order of Buffaloos"
tvpd other secret organizations.
For Instance, tho inystorlous

his stead has been substituted
the "dou"andtho "duck," It
is considored much moro digni

satisfactory to tho membors to

It must be homo in mind Unit
a young Buffalo buck must, when
in tho altitude of imbibing, in
variably use his loft hand in
lifting tho glass. This stringent
rule has its advantages, when it
is considered that with tho right
hand "Sleepers" lying about on
the tablo or bar can be eonliscut
cd with much more dexterous
precision and with less likelihood
of detection, to &ay nothing of
enabling ono to keep his hand
upon the change pocket of his
coat without occasioning offonso.
This rule is considored to bo tiio
easiest one in tho ritual to re
member. The reason for this
is tliat when your fellow mem
bors discover the mistake you
havo made, it is again "up to
you," und so on until you havo
become "bar broken.
Tho rules of the order aro
contagious. Even tho "grip" is
catching. You cannot bo a mem
ber in good standing until you
know what tho "grip" is, and
when ono person is observed
passing another tho "grip" it
will bo sufficient evidence that
they aro Buffaloos.
It is less difficult to distinguish
a mihulo along about midnight

from the manner in which lie

When you aro in doubt us to
the standing of a Buffulo buck,
hurl these questions at him in
rapid succession, not giving him
time, between, to answer1
"Aro you a Buffalo?"
