BABY STEALING ON THE PLAINS
AN EXCITING BUSINESS.

Unt 11 within the laut five years it was not
strange or uncommon for buffalo cows and
ralvef to be found herded with the wild
cattle of the ranges, and the spring round ups
alwaj a reported more or loss sport for the
darin; and reckless "cow punchers" with
buffalo calves Wetrn men have at last,
howe"er, begun to ivalize, with more than a
little -pgret, that the large drovesof buffaloes
roanuug at will over the trackless plains of
the territories formed sights that are forever
to be lost, and to rwilize also that the shame
ful slaughter of those picturesque brutes has
been n waste of gold. The fact that the do
mesti.'ated buffalo and the cross breeds are
both very valuable and easily herded is Just
now ( Iving a new rest to the sport of buffalo
hunti ig, and the dangers of the chase are in
crease! tenfold by the fact that the object
now i j not to kill, but to capture.
To lwke prisoners of the young or to bring
upon one's self the tierce avenging fury of a
buffalo cow, by throwing a rope over her
calf, requires the utmost self possession as
well 48 that peculiar duredevil familiarity
with saddle and horse which are found so
fully developed in the range riders of the
weste-u plains. The hunt is profitless If the
calvet. are injured, and the preparations for
the ct re of the captives are uot only minute,
but tecessarily expensive. Domestic cows
are pitvided as wet nurses, and a constant
watel fulness is nlwerved over these compul
bory foster mothers until they have overcome
a not unnatural repugnance to their new
cbargi. The calves, however, when captured
and placed in a corral with their nurses, dis
play no excessive modesty In foraging for
uulk, and their impetuous raids ujkmi the new
coinir. Unary are extremely amusing.
An important element in the buffalo hunt
ing of today is the fact that the females give
lilitU to their young very early in the spring,
and tlie hunt must lie accomplished before the
begiu ling of the spring round up of cattle,
or thi calves tiecome too strong to capture
A SI'ECIUKI RAID.
In February two four horse teams, with
Ueavj wagons U-hind them, pulled slowly out
of the town of Rawlins, Wy. T. In the first
wagon, and in charge of the expedition, was
a gon Ionian known as "the colonel," whose
weatler beaten and genial face was aglow
with l he pleasures of anticipation and whose
wagon wus packed with comfortable bedding,
"grub," cooking utensils, and last, but not
least, a varied assortment, consisting of sour
mash. Martel cigars, tobacco, pipes, rifles,
etc Beside him sat John, rotund, smiling
and e .idently coutent with the world as it is.
The rear wagon contained 2,000 pounds of
baled hay and a quantity of rope to be used
for lnrtats, and was manned by a notable.
Jehu, who, the colonel swore, could trans
form a jack rabhit Into a pullet, or if the very
worst should befall them, could broil the
harne leather ao that it would beaa good as
Three days' traveling carried the party to
the northern boundary of the Red desert,
where were waiting the hunters Wright,
Chapman and Gomez, a Mexican vaquero.
Each hunter had a "string" of eight horses.
Twenty-five dollars was the stipulated price
of eai-h calf which should be caught unin
jured and bound by the feet At 4 o'clock on
the following morning breakfast was an
nounced, and at its finish all hands but the
cook faddled their horses and "hit the trail,"
driviiig the extra saddle horses before them.
After quietly riding for an hour Gomez
called attention to a buffalo trail, and fol
lowed it at soma distance in advance of the
others, carefully watching ahead. The trail
lead through sage brush, over the plains,
across innumerable draws, until Gomez
reach id the summit of a low range of hills,
when be suddenly wheeled bis horse and re
turne 1 to the party. Instantly all was ex
citement; the game was in sight One enor
mous bull, four cows and three calves were
browsing, unsuspicious of danger, about half
a mil. away from the party. Fresh horses
were roped and saddled, and the hunters
separated to surround the herd with as little
noise as possible. At a signal from Wright,
given when each of the hunters had crept as
close is possible, the three horses made a dash
forwt rd. With a snort of fear the bull threw
up his head, and seeing Wright rushing upon
him be wheeled in blinl terror and plunged
bead! ng towards Chapman, whose horse
reared and fell backward. As Chapman
swun;; himself out of the saddle unhurt the
terrif ed brute went past him like a cyclone.
IIOETINO FOR THEIR TOCNQ.
Met ji while Gomez had thrown his rope
over it calf, and was in the act of getting out
of hi saddle to tie the calfs legs when the
mottxr came dashing through the sage brush
with a savage bellowing for her young. As
the infuriated brute rushed toward him, Go
mez dropped his rope and swung his horse
around, and the cow, finding both Gomes
and kVrigbt galloping toward her from
the rear, fled, panic stricken, and her calf
was f ecured. By this time the others of the
herd 'were a mile away with Chapman flying
after them. Another calf was run down and
tied lfore its mother had sufficiently recov
ered from her fright to notice its absence.
The t hree hunters then put their horses to a
gallop to run down the remaining calf." A
half jour's hard riding brought them op to
the tand again, but this time under vastly
differ mt choleric conditions.
The cows that had lost their calves were
furious, and the one whoso calf was still with
her a as disposed to fight savagely. The calf
was exhausted by the run and the cows were
deciddly vicioua So, giving their horses a
treat ling space, the three hunters separated
again, coming upon the band from different
poinbi. As they approached cautiously, in
tending if possible to stampede the herd and
rope the calf as it fell behind, one of the in
furialed cows made a sidelong dash, and In a
twin! ting Wright's long legs were in the air
and bis horse lay kicking in the sage brush,
while the cow was plunging away down the
plain with the speed of an unlimited ex
press. Chapman threw his rope on the calf,
and as it bellowed, its mother turned upon
Chap nan, who was forced to drop the rope
to avoid a collision which would have been

That Tired reeling
Afflicts nearly every one in the spring.
The Jj8lem having become accustomed
to the bracing air of winter, is weakened
by tl e warm days of the cnaoging season,
and i-eadily yields to attacks of disease.

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country,.
Hear what he says:
I have been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines oh the market, and as I
have suffered nntold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced cy a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B, or Bo.
tame Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to ins
1 am ma tor y attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago, at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I bad only
eaten six meals, and could ecarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish my meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B.
B. B. . cured me in mid winter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully,
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
