Near Bliss, Okla.
In casting about for novelties to en
tertain ihe delegates to the National
Editorial association who will spend a
day on ranch "101." near Bliss, Okla.,
next summer, Joe Miller, president of
the rauch company, found one which
he believea would le a lively attrac
tion, says a Illiss (.Okla.) correspondent
of thv Kansas City Star. The prelimi
nary' steps of his discovery have cost
him $50U, and the cost may be greater

Ranch "101" has a small herd of buf
faloes, purchased at the Goodnight
ranch in the Texas l'aahandie Miller
decided to break two young buffalo
buils for driving purpose's, believing
tlKit a ride behind two buffalo road
sters would delight the visiting editors.
Miller began his bullalo "busting" one
Sunday not long ago, and nearly every
cowboy on the rauch joined in the
sport. Two exiert "ropers" saddled
their ponies and started in pursuit of
two young Im.Us that we're griir.lug in a
nearby pasture. Roth bulls were wild
and galloped away at full spinvl. The
day was cold, but the high speed of the
e v ponies told on tlio bufl'aloes.
One of the bulls was roped around
its nevk. Rclng stronger than a steer,
it dragged the pony with it, though
the pony furrowed tlK sand with its
feet. Then, with eyes flaming like two
coa is and its tail erect, it gave a bel
low and charged tlie pony, which chw-e-rly
dodg-i-el the oiista uglit. Another
cowboy threw a lariat over tlie buf
falo's horns, and the horsemen were
sale, as they e-oiild hold the buffalo be
The prediction was made that the
bullalo could not be tamed to drive.
"Riul'alo" Jones, now a gamekeeper in
Yellowstone park, iu the earlv nine-
lie; owned a large herd near Garden
City. Kan., and killeal a number in at
tempts to tame them. Jones declared
that w hen too greatly enraged a buffa
j seemcd able to die of its own voli
tion. It would stiffen its limbs and
in ti moment or two fall dead. Miller
would not listen to w;wning and said
tiiat he would have a driving team if
he used tp every TmiTalo on his ranch.
Another buffalo was roped, and the
two were fastened by their heads se
em cly to a stout corral. I'.ridles were
slipped over the'ir heads and harness
thrown from a safe distance on to their
backs. The tongue of a heavy freight
wagon was shoved between them and
lixed into the neck yoke. The traces
were fastened to the singletrees with
a Jong hooked iron rod. A lariat was
fastened around the horns of each buf
falo and held by mounted cowboys to
prevent a 'general smasliup In a stam
pede. Once securely harnessed, the buffalos
were turned loose. They broke, mad
and bellowing, for the open prairie, the
wagon iiiled with reckless cowboys,
who lired their pistols to increase the
speed of the lumbering team. Tlte
bufi'alos tried repeatedly to turn upon
each other and light, but were held
apart by the mounted cowboysj As
the bufi'alos grew wearied their speed
decreased, but their rage grew more
furious. ITnally they balked, and trou
ble began in earnest. The larger bull
dropped to its knees, with its fore
head iu the dnst. I'rodding el id not
move it. Then it rolled over on Its
side and glared with red eyes tit its
tormentors. The other bull turned side
wise and tried to hreidt loose from its
Remembering the experience of "Buf
falo" Jones, the prostrate buffalo was
unhitched, "tailed" to Its feet and led
toward the corral. Whe-n near the cor
ral the buffalo lowered its head and
charged with its full strength against
a heavy corral post. The slunk was
terrific, and blood lmrat from the ani
mal's nostrils. Three tijiies the buff HI

the cowloys could tighten their ropes.

dead with scarcely a struggle.
"I'll have a buffalo team If I have t

Miller. "I'll bet they can be trained to

horse. The trouble is we are not on t

Next day the other bull was roped
