"A horse," said he, " was considered of
more value In the Lone Star state some years
ago than a man. The desperado who killed
a companion or who 'put out the light' of a
tenderfoot took a high place in society, but
If he stole a borne well, be was Jerked higher.
Sometimes In the speedy administration of
justice the wrong man was strung up;
sometimes a man was hoisted for taking his
own burse, but, os tho victims of the mistake
never complained, little was said about the
errors. You know, the cowboys In Texas
bad a saying that it was better that 100 in--nocent
men should be banged than that one
horse thief should go unpunished. Among
the more cultivated and reverent that was
belioved to be culled from the Ten Com
mandments, and the cowboys pinned it to

HIS TOE3 CRISS-CROSSED.
"On one occasion we wore driving a herd
through New Mexico, and had not a horse to
spare. Every animal was in use, and we were
very careful of them, a we had a long ride.
The trail was dotted with 'strays,' fellows
who had no headquarters and whose business
was that of horse steuling. One morning we
awoke to And three of our best mustangs
gone, with saddle, bridle, lariat run clean
off. Half a dozen started in pursuit of the
tbioves, who were not more than five hours
ahead. We knew they daren't leave the trail,
and It was only a question of endurance on
toe part of the horses. AU day we rode, but
never got a sight of them. It was agreed that
we should ride for a couple of hours after
dark, and, saving the time of cooking, make
so much on tho thioves. Tho chase began
again early In the morning, and the ride was
hard and fatiguing. In the afternoon we saw
horseman leave the trail and strike away
for the hills. We gave a yelL One of the
thieves had 'petered' out and had been left
behind. We spurred on and shw that lie in
tended to make the cha.se a long one. To in
tercept him wo had to make n wide detour,
and we kuow diirknt-ss must bo on us bttfore
we captured him. Our mustangs thowed
signs of fatigue, Imt a cov.-l.oy would rather
lose half a dozrti animals legitimately thau
see one carried oif by a pirate. So we plied
rope and spur ami in n couple of hours we
got lu bullet rmiKO of im num. We began
popping at him, more to draw bis fire than
anything else, ns we cand neither to kill him
nor cripple tho horso. He couldn't hit a baru
and his gun was soon uwlcss. Then we dashed
up and one of the boys dragged him from the
addle. We asked hiui no questions. "
"You've lost tho others," ho said.
"Vegetation was want there, but we took
the highest we could find and dragged him
up until his head was within two inches of
the limb and his tous criss-crossed the ground
as oe swayed, lie struggled frightfully and
wriggled one or his boots oil. The buttons
on his clothes gave way, and when we left
him ho was almost as naked as when be was
oOSTCTIItNO DEAD IN FRONT.
"We struck the trail ngnin and halted for
a rest, The horse wo bad recovered was al
most played out, and the others were lu
very uau conuiuon. me pursuit was over
for a good many hours, and we needed the
thought of one tnuu caught aud hanged to
Duoyusup. All tho next dav wo followed.
and when we took supper wo began to think
iffchad done the best we could. Somo were
for giving up the chase, buMt was decided to
spend another day on tho trail.
"In the morning the air was loaded with
the taint of vulturoa, We could see tho car
rion eaters like siecks against the white
" 'TheyYe going to pay their respects to
the man behind us, said one of tho party.
" 'He's finished long ago,' was the reply.
'Boys, tiler's somethiu dead iu front.'
"We mounted aain, and as we rode the
vultures became thicker. We followed their
flight, and by midday we Bn vr hundreds of
headstone like birds off on tho plains. The
trail of the horse thieves was at an end. The
vultures arose and bung over us as we rode
up to the place of tho feast. Ey the sUo of
the brown skinned man lay a pile of bones,
wet yet, but Oeshless. The bonus of the
hone thief were as clean as if he bad been
"They haven't started on this one," said
one of tho boys, kicking tin laxly that had
not been devoured.
" 'Nor they won't,' said tho man who told
ua 'somethln' ' wus dead in front. 'He's a
Spaniard, an' so full of r.;d epier that a
vulture won't touch him.' I had heard the
hoys say that before, and did not believe it.
But there the man lay, perfect as when he
dropped from hU horse through fatigue, and
by his side lay the clean bonus of a man who
had fallen with him. And there be would
lie for months, mid at the end of that time
would give no signs of decomposition, but
every day the elements would steal from him
something of bis liunmtiity, and at last he
would become as tho du-t of the plains. We
took up the trail very leisurely, and got to
the herd without trouble" San Francisco

A physician, who is connected with an in
stitution which contains many children, says:
"There is nothing more Irritating to a cough
than to cough. For some time I had been so
fully assured of this that I recently deter
mined. If possible for ono minute, at least, to
lessen the number of coughs heard in a cer
tain ward in tho Lospiud of the institution.
By the promise of reivurds and punishment
I succeeded in inducing them simply to bold
their breath when tempted to cough, and in
a little while I was myself surprised to see
how somo of the children entirely recovered
from their dUcase.
"Constant coushiug is precisely like
scratching a wound on the outside of the
body; so lo:;g as it is done tho wound will
not heal Let a person when tempted to
cough, draw n long bruatli und hold it until
it warms aud soothos every air cell, and somo
benefit will soon bo received from tho pro
cess. The nitrogen, which is thus reflned,
acts as an anodyne to tho irritated raucous
membrane, allayin;; tho desire to cough and
giving the throat und lungs a chance to heal.
At the saino time a suitable medicine will aid
nature in her effort to recuperate." Balti

with my staff at 4 bouse on a large plantation
and asked the gny headed old planter sitting

with a gourd to drink from. While I and
