some of tho drove leaders to be met
with in the davs of the wild horse, bnt
he was yet a king among horses. Of
the remainder of the herd about 80
were fine animals. Tbo others would
hardly be worth the catching. Three or
four were recognized as cavalry horses
abandoned on the march, and twice
that number had collar marks to prove
that they had stampeded from some im
When clear of the pas., they formed in
line and advanced npon as to within a
quarter of a mile. We bad 75 horses at
the lariat puis, and for half an honr we
bad all we conld do to prevent a stam
pede. Tho wild horses were finally
driven down the valley by two mounted
men, but they did not seem to have
much fear of us. On the contrary, the
leader of tho drove exhibited such tem
per that tho men feared they would
have to shoot him. It was au hour be
fore, our cavalry horses calmed down in
tho slightest. Every animal seemed en
raged at tbe sight of tbe free herd, and
tho captain's Kentucky stallion acted as
if possessed by a fiend. He had been
doubly fastened at the beginning of the
excitement, and later on this proved a
fortunate thing. He made the most tre
mentions efforts to get free, and when
at length he realized tho futility of fur
ther efforts in that direction he uttered
shrill screams of rage and lashed out
with his heels till no one dared approach
him. All night long he stood on his feet
pawing and snorting, and the camp sen
tinels reported the wild horses as hang
ing about within half a mile of us.
Daylight had come, and the sentinels
of the night were coming into camp.
when the wild horses rushed into View
a milo below us. On the instant we
discovered them, and while four-fifths
of tho men were yot under their blank
ets the captain s horso uttered a scream
which must have been taken as a sig
nal. He reared up, shook his head like
an angry lion and freed himself of his
halter. In tho samo instant every other
horse in tho command secured his lib
erty. Some pulled up the pins, some
worked their heads clear of the straps,
aud away went tho wholo drove down
tho vallev. It was not a stampede, as
we naturally feared. Even had our ani
mals desired to join the ranks of the
free, they would have been rebuffed.
Onr horses were bunched, and in a sol'
id bunch they drove right through the
lines of the wild horses and left four of
them lying crippled on the grass as they
passed. The prairie drove retreated up
tho valley half a mile and then wheel
ed about in a tingle, lino. When our
drove halted and turned, there was a
distance of three-quarters of a mile be
tween the combatants. We were ordered
to fall in. with a vicwot advancing up
on tho wild horses and driving them off.
but before we had gotten into line it
was too late.
The sight was a wonderful one. The
two leaders advanced as if they meant
to decido tho issue by a fight between
them, bnt when within 40 yards of each
other they wheeled and returned to
their respective lines. Then we wit

double line and dressed to the right as
perfectly as if a trooper had occupied
each saddle, and while wo looked the
lines suddenly moved forward on a
charge. When they swept past us, the
alignment was absolutely perfect, with
tho captain's horse on the right and
leading by about 20 feet. Tbe line of
wild horses bent and wavered, but did
not break until struck. It was like strik

four were speedily on their feet again.
From this on it was a melee, the whole
drove circling around, and each horse
biting and kicking and displaying such
ferocity as to astonisb us. Tbe mob
fought past us down the valley and
back, and right in front of the camp tbe
climax came. The battle had been rag
ing half an hour, when the spotted stal
lion hobbled out of it on three legs and
bleeding from half a dozen wounds,
and that seemed to take the pluck out
of his followers. Some ran up the val
ley and some down, but of the 83 only

was over, we dasned in and seenred a
horse here and there, and in this man

The Wonders of Smelling;.
James Mitchell, who died in or about
1833, in tbe county of Karin, in Scot
land, and was born blind on Nov. 11,
1795, recognized, says Tho World of
Wonders, different persons by smelling.
The famous Mr. Boyle mentions a blind
man at Utrecht who could distinguish
different metals by tho different odors,
and Martials records the case of a per
son named Mamurra who could tell by
smelling whether copper was true Cor
inthian or not Indian travelers have
recorded that certain natives who habit
ually abstained from animal food have
a sense of smelling which is so exquis
itely delicate that they can tell from
which well a vessel of water has been
obtained. It has been related that by
smell alone tbe negroes of the Antilles
will detect the footsteps of a Frenchmen
from those of a negro. Marco Marci has
left an account cf a monk at Prague who
could tell by smelling anything given to
him who bad last handled it. Tbe guides
who accompany travelers in the route
from Aleppo to Babylon will tell by
smelling tbe desert sand how near they
are to the latter place.

A TRAGIC ADVENTURE.
Tbe Thrilling Keojoel to the Baagtaf; aaf
Everybody remembers when the
great Texas murderer, Dick Masters,
was hanged," said E. M. Gary of Waco,
but the strange death of Sheriff Win
ters, who sprung the.trap, has been kept
out of the papers. After Masters' body
was cut down, tbe county physician pro
nouncing the murderer dead, tbe sheriff
ordered four deputies to carry the body
to his private- laboratory, where he
used-to pursue his medical experi
ments alone. He was bound to dissect
the powerful, well developed body of
Masters, so he shut himself up with the
corpse and went to work.
The sheriff' moved about briskly,
making a great clatter with his instru
ments. Several times he went to the
windows aud peered out, but tbe neigh
borhood was deserted. He soon discov
ered that tbe drop on the scaffold had
not broken Masters' neck, and the sher
iff thought that was fortunate, as he al
ways had experimented on tbo restora
tion of life whenever opportunity afford
ed. He laid down his instruments and
began to try and restore life. Tho even
ing shadows drifted into night It was
a noisy town and tbe shouts and laugh'
ter of revelers could bo heard every
where. Several times the crowds pass
ing the sheriff's room thought they
heard the sounds of scuffling, and more
than once a muffled shout was heard.
But the pleasure seekers on the streets
passed along without giving a thought
On tho following day Sheriff Winters
failed to appear at his office. Nobody
had seen him since he locked himself in
the laboratory with Masters' body.
Finally tha mayor of the town and sev
eral deputy sheriffs went to the labora
tory, but rapping at the door nor shouts
would bting any answer. Then they
broke open the door. The sight before
them nearly turned their hair gray.
The room was a total wreck. The furni
turo was strewn about the room.
smashed to pieces, and everything bore
evidence of a terrible struggle. Sheriff
Winters lay on the floor, dead, and the
marks about his throat showed that he
had been strangled. A few feet away
lay the dead borly of the murderer, Mas
ters. The faces and the garments of both
men bore evidence of a hard fight The
only conclusion that could be arrived at
was that Masters had revived, and on
regaining consciousncss'and strength be
attacked the sheriff and succeeded in
killing him before he died himself. All
this happened in the jail cf Rio Grande
county." Kansas City Journal.
IS THIS FACT OR LEGEND?
A Queer Story About tho Way In Which
"Lrananie" Was Written.
In the house of a gentleman in this
city we recently saw a poem written on
tbe fly leaf of an old book. Noticing
tho initials "E. A. P. "at the bottom,
it struck us that possibly we had run
across a bonanza.
The owner of tbo book said that he
did not know who was the author of the
poem. His grandfather, who gave him
the book, kept an inn in Chesterfield,
near Kichmond. One night a young
man rapped at the door and asked if he
could stay all night and was shown to
That was the last we saw of him.
When they went nest morning to call
him to breakfast, he had gone, but had
left the book, on tbe fly loaf of which
he had written these verses :

who 'was a botanist in his hours of lei

of a very rare plant "How are the
seeds coming on?" he asked the great

Charm of Stevemoa'a Style,
But the main fact which entitles it to
be called a perfect style is its constancy
in excellence and charm. It is always
firm and complete in texture, and nni
form in the sense that, wbile it varies
in spirit to suit the subject in hanfl, it
does not vary in quality from line to
line, from page to page. I think that
Stevenson himself has really written
perfoct pages, and at all events his
style delights us more as a whole than
in any of its parts, striking or exquisite
though many of these may still appear
when torn away from their context If
you like best to be surprised by inde
pendent epigrams, by unexpected bursts
of eloquence, by sudden marvels of ex
pressional felicity, turn to some other
writer. Stevenson will not amaze you
thus. But except very slightly now and
then in his earliest efforts he will never
disappoint yon or let you down. And
this experience ought to seem more
amazing than any other could. To do
things flawlessly from end to end is a
rarer and more satisfying merit than to
do portions of them magnificently welL
To strike a beautiful key and always
maintain it, even when treating of ugly
or commonplace things, and yet to keep
tbe thing and its expression in accord
this is the noblest of literary triumphs.

A Word For the Elevator Hoy.
One of the elevator men in the city
hall, whoso contact with all sorts and
conditions of men has developed in him
a fondness for studying character, has
often wondered just what word to apply
to a malady which seems to afflict some
of his passengers. Many people get
into the elovator," he -remarked the
other day, "and seem to imagine
should know just where they want to
get off. They never open their lips until
I carry them beyond their destination,
when they seem to think I am at fault
for not being a mind reader. I spoke to
Police Surgeon Andrews about it ono
day, and told him I thought there ought
to be some word coined to describe these
people. Ho advised me to call them
aphonians, and explained to me that
aphonia was really a temporary loss of
tpeech. So now I'm always on the
watch for aphonians." Philadelphia
Be Wouldn't Brine an Action.
There is a story told of a very eminent
advocate, now no longer with ns, who
once, while endeavoring to dissuade a

what he would himself consider a suffi

"My dear fellow, he replied, "I do
