WILD HORSE JERRY.
An Int i* row I inn Western Charac
ter Who Defied .< Storm.
"The most interesting character I
ever knew 1 me' last summer In Gree
ley, Weld county. C 01.." said W. C.
Boerner, of Denver, to an Express re
porter. "He has caught more wild
horses In his day than any other man
living. His real name is Jeremiah
Smith, but everybody around Greeley
knows him as Wild Horse Jerry. He
has a little ranch down on the Banks
of the Platte about ten miles east of
the town, and it was there 1 met him.
1 was riding from Lovelands to Ster
ling. I stopped at Jerry's house for the
night, and that evening, before we
turned Into bed, he told me something
about his experiences. He is <<uite an
old man now. but he is still very active,
and can ride 103 miles In a day easily
•'lt was over thirty years ago that he
started out as a wild horse catcher.
Since that time he has caught over
1,000 horses, and he has broken every
one of them to the saddle. He has
ridden for three days and nights stead
ily after some particularly wary band
of horse stopping only to change
horses. It takes a man with an iron
constitution to do that, and he is one
of the most powerful men in the coun
ty. He is under medium height, but
the muscles stand out all over his body.
"Once, he told me, he was far out
on the plains in midwinter with a
young German. They were miles away
from any ranch, when they were caught
ii: a snow storm. The only thing to do
when a storm like that strikes you
way down below zero, is to roll your
self in your blankets and lie down and
wait until the storm is over and the
weather gets warmer. That's what
they did. The snow piled over them
and kept them warm, but they knew it
would be as much as their lives were
•worth to get up and try to continue
their journey. The snow came down
so thick and fast they couldn't see a
foot ahead of them. They couldn't see
their horses; they couldn't see each
other. Jerry held his hand out before
his face, but the snow hid it from
his sight. He had to hold it close to
his eyes before he could see it. Hour
after hour passed by, and. the storm
still kept on. Finally, after they had
lain there six hours, the German said
he was going to run the risk of getting
up and looking about. He thought he
might be able to find a ranch some
"In spite of Jerry's remonstrances
the man started off. Jerry lay there all
through the day and night, and in the
morning the storm passed away. Jerry
started out to look for him, and only a
few rods from where he had been lying
he found his dead body. The wind had
been blowing such a gale that even
If he called for help Jerry would not
have heard him.
"Jerry would be a rich man today
if he had let whisky, alone. He made
tens of thousands of dollars out of his
horses, but he spent it all in Cheyenne
saloons. There is only one band of
wild horses left in the state now, and
Jerry has made half a dozen Unsuc
cessful attempts to catch them. . They
wander about in the northwest Corner
of the state, and are very often seen
by men on the Seven Cross ranch, near
Grover. Jerry has chased them for
hundreds of miles, but they have al
ways eluded him."

At Si. Petersburg the average yearly
death:- are from 2,503 to 3,000 in ex

nearly a million. In the years from
38<58 to ISS2 the death rate varied from

the'ic figures are opt to be misleading.
The workmen who come up to the cap

ar.d children in the provinces. Thus,
many births take place in the provinces
which are riot reckoned to the account

"i per cent of the population are over
sixteen years of age testifies to the
universality of the practice of leaving

The same fact is demonstrated
by the presence of twelve men

seen that though the deaths are in ex

Every human being has his pet
superstition. It came to him almost
in the cradle, and has remained with
him. by a strange pertinacity, all his
life, says the New York Times. Man
is too proud to admit a governing
Influence which has no real founda
tion and must fall to pieces when its
stability is tested, but no matter
how silly 'a superstition may be,
once imbedded in memory by a sin
gle instance when it came true, all its
signal failures will generally fail to
loosen its grip upon the human being
who has been taught it in child
hood. A pet superstition will lose
not a jot of its influence should it
fail every time in a hundred, pro
vided it proves true in one instance
only. This fact shows how men are
joined to their superstitious idols..
"Sing before breakfast, cry before
night," is the most .ridiculous of all
old bogies, and the most destructive
of mirth, laughter and happiness. It
is not difficult to prove its fallacy.
Let every man, woman and child
stand up against it, sing, howl, if
they cannot give forth melodious
sounds, laugh merrily, and rejoice
at the coming of day, like the birds,
whose first thought upon waking on
the appearance of the first streak
of dawn is to sing happily with pure
joy for the return of another day.
Let each be as happy as the birds,
and make everybody else happy, and
thus will this detestible superstition
retire to the gloom of its inception
and be heard of no more.
There is an old superstition* that
the left limbs should always be
dressed first, but not completely at
one time. Suppose that the man who
manifests his indignation at the as
sertion that he is superstitious com
mences, cautiously, as it were, with
out letting himself know that he is
being watched, with the first gar
ment he puts on in the morning, and
learn what is the result. How sur
prised he will be to know, perhaps
for the first time, 'that his left arm
goes into his shirt first, his left leg
in his trousers first, and bis left
sock on his left foot 'first, to. say
nothing of continuing the observa
tion as far as the shoe. There are
men who will change a garment
which has been put on, unconscious
ly, inside out, but there are many
men who will not, for their lives,
risk the old superstition concerning
such an act. Kings have not dared
it. . .- ,■■-■■. ■[■ <r. ■-. .** ... ".-
Where is the man or boy who, sav
ing only in a spirit of bravado, will
knowingly walk under a ladder?
Even if done in a spirit of definace
of the old bogie, how expectantly
and sometimes tremblingly he awaits
the coming of the penalty. Try it,
man, and if the penalty of sorrow or
loss, disappointment or accident, does
not result before the day has swept
by you will not 'tell of it. If it comes
to you, the rule will be followed, and
you will never cease telling of it,
this rare occurrence.
When a man returns to the house
after once starting out, having, per
haps, forgotten to kiss his wife, or
something less important, his natural
inclination, without special prompt
ing, is to sit down before starting
again. It is said to be bad luck to
Even death may result if a human
being should raise an open umbrella
over his head within doors, it is said.
Umbrella makers have been known
to observe this religiously.
People who live in the country
must be careful not to have around
their homes a white-nosed cow, for,
should the window be open and this
cow with the white proboscis reach
it over the window sill in search of
information or something dainty,
there will be a death in the family
before long. So says the old saw.
Why must we give a penny for any
sharp instrument presented by a
friend? Why do we seek a four
leaved clover, and why must- we
pick up a dirty horseshoe from the
street whenever we see' it there?
Why do men nail the horseshoe over
their doors, and ends down, too, when
the original superstition, of which
they seem to be in ignorance, asserts
that it should be nailed up the other
way, so as to catch within its em
brace the luck which descends?
There is no longer any use of talk
ing about the old bogie concerning
one of thirteen sitting at table dying
within a year after the feast, for
the Thirteen club exploded that fool
ish old saw by sitting thus -month in
and month out many years, many
tables with thirteen at each, and all
lived out the dangerous year and
more years added, but there are
still living men who would not un
dertake a journey on. Friday, al
though, after coming to sum the mat
ter up, multitudes of men have dis
covered that Friday, of all days in
the week, is the most fortunate day
for everything. And it is rarely now
that a criminal is executed on Fri
day in any part of the world, thanks
to that Thirteen club, who laugh at
superstition, knife and fork in hand.
Yet there is not one of them who
has not his pet superstition, either
consciously or otherwise. The big
gest man in the club carries a horse
chestnut In his pocket to ward, off
rheumatism, and another is a spirit
ualist. They all put on the left sock
first, and few of them dare sing be

It is the negro who Is the most su
perstitious being on earth, Superstition
rules his every action, and leads him
to the performance of the most, ridic
ulous things. His. pet superstitions are
the hoodoo and the ghost. In both of
these he believes as implicitly as he
does in a God. The heart, torn out of
a living chicken, the tongue of a liv
ing frog, a dead man's linger, a silt
from a growing ash tree, or the blood
of a murdered man, as well as a. few
other such things, and a midnight walk
of a mile or more, clad only in his
night shirt, may serve, in his imagina
tion, to quell the hoodoo, but the ghost
can never be laid until its own purpose'
is completely served. Some years ago
there was an elegant mansion in the
outskirts of New Orleans which had
been occupied by a strong-minded old
woman, who owned, together with .the
mansion and grounds, a number of
slaves. It was said! of this woman that
she was accustomed to chain one and
another in several rooms of this man
sion and beat them terribly, some
times even to death. When this hor
rible woman died, and ever after, the
negroes round about swore that un
earthly groans and the rattling of
chains were heard nightly "coming from
the ghosts of her victims within the
house. Consequently, the house re
mained untenanted, although the sur
rounding round was sold, and the man
rounding ground was sold, and the man
sion was. valued at $75,000.
One day an enterprising Yankee pur
chased it for some $3,000, and, after
slight preparation, threw open the doors
for the admission of the public at so
much per head. The "Chamber of Hor
rors," and so on, were timorously in
spected by the multitude for many
months, and the enterprising man from
down East retired from the showman's
profession with a fortune and the title
deed of the house. But the ghosts were
too sensible to disgrace themselves to
the extent of being shown up for a
mere song of admission fee, and were
laid then and there, much to the satis
faction of the "cullud gentleman."
It is human- nature to see in others
what we fail to see in ourselves. A very
apt caution is sometimes met with,
which is, "Man, know thyself!" If
every man will watch himself atten
tively he will find that more than a sin.
gle superstition will, to his utter as
tonishment, perhaps, crop out now and
again. It is worth trying, just for the
fun of the thing and to satisfy a com
mendable curiosity. •
His Hobby of Keeping Cl i piling--*
Leads to the Recovery of a
The old adage, "Truth is stranger
than fiction," received another exemp
lification here a few days ago. Som?
three years since a young physician
named Pollard, residing in Nashville,
Term., was a passenger on a Texas
and Pacific train coming from El Paso.
Between Ft. Worth and Marshall he
discovered the loss of a valuable dia
mond, which formed the setting of his
scarfpin. A vigorous search was in
stituted, but without result, and the
loss was advertised in the Marshall
papers, a large reward being offered
for the recovery of the stone.
Several days ago an employe of the
car shops, while overhauling a coach
which had been run in for repairs,
came across a large diamond firmly
Wedged in between the cushions of one

advertisements relative to railroad af
fairs, and pasting them into an old
scrap book. When Mr. Hagan spoke
of his find his little boy seemed struck
with an idea, and asking for his scrap
book he began turning over the leaves.
Presently he showed his father Dr.
Pollard's advertisement of three years
ago. The doctor was communicated

NEW YORK, Dec. 24. — To
day's.... business in the stock mar
ket fell somewhat below yesterday,
but was well distributed and the tone
was buoyant London wa's much less
a factor than on Monday, but there
was comparatively light selling for
that account. Important buying for
London is not looked for in the imme
diate future, as the short interest at
that center has been practically elim
inated and Investors are deterred from
this market by misgivings as to our
currency outlook. The features of to
day's local trading were the purchases
by large houses with Washington con
nections, duo to expectations of an Im
pending issue of government bonds on
a basis satisfactory to the treasury
department and the gratifying results
of the timely action of the clearing
house committee in preventing dis
tressing rates for money. Although,
some call loans were made at 9 per
cent, the bulk of the business was done
at ii per cent, and transactions were
made on good mixed stock - exchange
collateral at. s per cent.
The market proved superior to a
sharp rise in the sterling exchange
market, partly owing to the great dis
parity betweeen the amount of the
actual engagements of gold for ship
ment tomorrow and the previous ex
traordinary estimates. It was attempt
ed to be explained that the exports
would have been much larger but for
the difficulty experienced by would-be
shippers of the yellow metal in se
curing legal tenders. This condition
prevailed to a moderate extent. As a
matter of fact, foreign bankers are
disinclined to sell exchange to a large
amount where the gold is required to
be shipped three or four days ahead,
because, in the event of clearing house
loan certificates being used, the banks
where they deposit their checks would
receive for their credit loan certificates
instead of legal tender notes. The loan
certificates ' could not be paid ' over to
foreign bankers, and the banks would
not be willing to pay in legal tenders
out of their own stock, as their re
serve would soon be exhausted. •'
The market opened fairly active and
firm and soon became generally strong,
advances being recorded extending in
some instances to- 3 per cent. About 11
o'clock reactions occurred on the sharp
advance in actual and posted rates of
exchanges. The losses were soon re
covered, heavy purchases by the shorts
turning the scale. The upward ten
dency was thereafter maintained as a
rule, the highest figures of the day
being reached between 11 and 12 o'clock.

NEW YORK, Dec. 24.— The Evening
Post's financial cablegram from Lon
don says: "There was a further mark
ed improvement in American shares
today on telegrams reporting calmer
and more friendly utterances from
President Cleveland. The recovery
was due to re-purchases and a few
speculative orders. The closing was
nearly at the best. I understand that
financiers in Germany were sounded
yesterday as to terms of an American
coin and bond loan. The dearness of
money there, to say nothing else, is
against it. All the markets here clos
ed better, in sympathy with the recov
ery in Americans and foreigners."

Awkward Mistake of an Innocent
Little Sunday School Scholar.
Martha is four years old and has just
begun her religious education in the
Infant class of an uptown Sunday
school. It is the custom of the teacher
in this particular Infant class to give
each of her small pupils a card con
taining a short text which the child
is expected to memorize during the
week. In passing them out she charged
each of the children to be sure and
keep them carefully and return them
the next Sunday, that they might be
passed on to the others. Martha is not
a very careful little girl, and, though
fully Impressed with the duty of re
turning the card, she neglected to put
it in a place of safety, and even before
she reached home she discovered that
she had lost It. The thought worvfed
her considerably at first until a bright
idea came into her head, and, strange
to relate, it stayed there all the week.
She said nothing to her mother about
the lost card, and the next Sunday
went off to Sunday school happy ns
usual. The lost card was not troubling
her innocent little conscience. The in
fant class assembled and the teacher
called on the children to return (heir
cards. When it came Martha's turn
she arose and said timidly: '".'air. sor
ry, but I lost my card before I got
home. I have brought you i.tie of my
own, which papa gave me to play with.
It is much bigger and prettier than the
one I lost," and she placed it •vitri the
rest. : v' r -;:■;
The young woman who was teaching
the infant class stared in mute aston
ishment, while several unregenei-.vte
adults in different parts of the class
room bit their lips to keep from laugh
ing. The card which little Martha ten
dered was a somewhat dilapidated
queen of hearts.

"Well, sir," said the physician, after
examining his patient, "you have a
very serious complaint, but I cure It
In two cases out of five."
"But, doctor," replied the sick man.
"have you lost the two out of the class
I'd go in?" .:-':*
