CATTLE IN A STAMPEDE
WHAT 11 MEANS TO HAVE A HERD
RUN AWAY ON THE PRAIRIES.
A Grmpfcle Aoooant of an Incident of
Cattle DHt1j In No Man s Land Chaa

"Fellers, they air goin' to mn tonight"
Old Jne, the Fp -aker, tnrned in his saJdle
ana Begun to scan the tiorizou. As he
caught sight of a cloud do largerthan your
band that was j ast beginning to show it
self away to the uorth west, he repeated the
prophecy, and added, 'An' I don't think
we'll hnv nny kick a comin' about the
dust termorrer, either."
The time was in the sevents.-s, the lo
cality. No Man's Land, and we were on the
old Dode trail with 1,CW beeves, bound
for Oifalnlia. The herd had been put up
some steks before on the Brazos. At Rd
river crossing v. e had picked up a bunch
that had been l ist out of a previous drove
belonging to th same companj-. These
steers wore placd in onr herd against the
advice of old J.e. "They air ole stam
Tieders, no they'll spile the whole herd.
Let them wait for one of them dogie outfits
At c.ipjxi- tha . evening but little was
said; even the C(x k's yarns, told in hisMn
imitsSle style, fe I fiat. E-ery fm- minutes
our foreman would cast uneasy dances at
the great black clouds that were slowly
rising in the northwest. Instead of picket
ing the -horses, as was the custom, the ani
mals were saddled and tied to the waon,
or to bushes clof bv.
The tirst 'guard had hardly more than
taken charge whe i the rest of the outfit
prepared to roll in. The cook, nfrer t vir.r.
a lantern to the tongue, climhod in the
wnj;.in, lied the s:ieet down and thanked
tie Lord that he rasa cook. The wrangler
fimnd li place indT the coupling pole that
sailed his comple.Mon, while the riders un
strapped th-ir h tle "hot roll" on. the
ground and piled i:i without removing even
boots and spurs.
For some reason 1 was restless and un
able to sleep. All the slumber prodtring
receipts were tried in vain. 1 lay on my
back and watched be clouds, obscure star
after star, until ti e whole heavens were
hid. 1 counted the number of rounds the
guards were making, and then fell to
Watching the lightning and trying to judge
how far it was otT ny seeing how many 1
could count before I heard tiie thuuder
that followed everj fhish.
After a while, gn wing weary of this, I
tnmed toward the tire. Hy it sntf one of
the guards sipping strong coffee, between
whiffs at his cigaret us. The raitle of the
chains on his spurs and bit as his horse
jogged along told t ie whereabouts of an
other, while the w;ld Spanish song that
floated from the far side of the bed ground
indicated that "Little Jack," in thought
at least, was with his black eyed sweet
heart on the distant Rio Grande.
I closed my eyes for a few minutes, and
vrb.cn 1 IjLd au!u the izuard Im. U.fr
the fire. Little Jack's song was finished,
and, the only song :rom the bed ground
was the deep breathing of some .animal
that, had .just lain down. The thunder
had ceased for a few minutes, and the hoot
ofan owl in the cottoawood made the dat
ness still darker aud t he night more dreary.
As I dozed off Oh! .'oc's wards kept riug
ingfti my head: "There ain't no danger es
long es any of 'em air up an. a-grazin. but
when they air all do n, and it's that quiet
you kin hear your c wn heart beat, then
yau wacter git ready ter ride."
I wastill semi-cot scious when I heard
a roar like a mighty tprnado and sprang
tip as some one shouted:
"They are gone, feile ws! They are gone""
In lassAhan a minute every man was in
tUe'sadGle and rushing after tCe fleefug
berd. No need to i sk which way; the
trained night horses know tb.eir duty, and
are straining every nerve. The lightning's
play is grand; electr.city is everywhere;
flames dance along the mane, a ball of fire
glemas, on each ear tip. By the flashes the
riders locate the lay of the land in front.
HEADINO TL EM BACKl'
Soon we begin pasting' the drags. No
need to look after them; they'll follow,
and the real work is ot ahead. Far away,
in front, atov the roar of cattle and thund
er tho (."Lin!, ran li.? heai'd singing and
shouting to the madi.ened herd. As we
dash on the sounds a pear to becoming
more ami nore from i.he left, the leaders
are liein pressed around, ai d soon by a
flash we see them con ing; i . ;ht in front
of the craze.! animals, 1 okin iike a ghost
in his lung white slicker, hi., liery little
night horse lunging and fighting for his
head, rode Lit He J.ick.finirlug, calling and
swearing by turns.
By a concerted action, in which good
luck, stout lungs and heayy quirts ail play
important parts, the herd is thrown iJo
gether and the milling begins. Aroun,d
and around they go, ea( h animal with its
Lead over the rumpof tie oue jutin4"ront
Bolxisinniug, no end, just a solid mass,
staring, moauing, as only stampeded cattle
can. Balls of fire leap from horn to horn.
The cowboys are seated on their horses
still as statues, all formiug a picture tout
cjn't be duplicated. TLe orde is passed
along to "Give more roooil" the riders fall
back, the "mill" ceases, and1 soon is beard
a series' of coughs: "Jess clearin' their pipes
for another diish," some one says.
No - tLe riiiu bt-oiuj, rt alow, then in
creasing, tillfinally it is.cmingia a driving
sheet. With the first drops the cattle turn
and begin drifting with t he storm, all the
riders getting in front and endeavoring to
bold them luiik.
"If.w-e kin only hold 'em till their hides
get .wet I b'lieve we've g)t 'em," Old Joe
But it wasn't to be. Something gives
them e scare aud away they got N.o sooner
are the leaders checked than others turn
loaders, aud the whole herd goes thander
it3 after them. Another mill is .formed
and Che same performance gone over again.
So the night wears away. Tiie.rtms
grow porter; occasionally an 4nunal be
gins to eat. The rain is t ver, though- the
cioudsetUl bang heavy. The lightning
has ceased, and the riders sit stilkand mo
tion ess; unable to see even; the heads of
the hones they ride. Waier stands every
where, ana the cattle begin grazing In .-all
directions. The foreman gives orders" to
ride away, as our presence would only
serve to stir up and scatter the herd.
Some unsaddle, roll up iu their wet
blankets aud' sleep. Other s light pipes and
cigarettes aud begin watch inglor signs of
the coming' morning. Wiibthe first trray
straVsn 4ae east horses are saddled and
the-crewather around for orders.

It seems extraordinary, says The Illus
trated Amerioan, to observe a number of
bats in the evening flying back and forth
through the trees with remarkable rapid
ity, hut without ever coming in contact
with the branches or hurting themselves.
Spallanzani, the Italian naturalist, placed
a bat in a dark inclosure, across which
were stretched a number of threads, cross-:
ing and recrossing each other. The bat
flew rapidly back and forth, trying to effect
its escape, but avoided the threads with as
much ease as if they had not been in its
way in the least. Wh
power was the result of a sixth and an
j known sense was long a puzzle to natural
i ists. To decide this knotty Vint. Spal-:
resonea to tne cruel expedient of
blinding a bat, and found that it stiil flew
among the threads without being, to all'
appearances, any more iucon venieuced than
if it still had its ejresight. '
A Remarkable Occurrence.
A remarkable occurrence is narrated in
telegrams received from Southern Cali
fornia, namely, the recent and sudden ap
pearance of a shallow but extensive lake
in the so called Colorado desert to the
southwest of Salton, in San Diego county,
in Lower California. The lake at last
accounts ranged from fourteen inches to
three feet in depth, but was about thirty
miles long and twelve miles wide. It is
apparently the result of an overflow, and
it has been shown that the water, comes
from the Colorado river. The Southern
Pacific Railroad company, whose tracks
run through the district, has sent ouu in
vestigating parties to locate, if possible,
the point at which the water couits into
the desert. The, appearance of the lake has
recalled a number of schemes of irrigation,
which contemplated iu part what has now
taken place by accident.
A CharacU-riHtic Letter from Carlvle.
A short but characteristic letter from
Carlvle has recently been published. A
W"gievan miuister at Northampton dis
covered it the other day in au old book
which he picked up at a bookstall. The
letter, which is very clean and beautifullv
written, is dated "Chelsea, la Nov., lb.3."
It. reads as follows: "Very well' He 'dili
gent in business, fervent in spirit, there
fore.Xaad let me have credit of you as a
pupil!- Remember always "The end of man
is not a thought, but an action;' a series of
manful, faithful actions (and of modest,
silent, steadfast endurances withal), which
make up worthily man's life here below!
With many good wishes and friendly re
gard, I remain always, you.-.ruiy, T. Car-lyle."
