It was a large and appreciative and

pleased audience which greeted the Red
path Star Concert company at Harper's
theatre lrst evening. An Fxcellent pro
gramme was successfully carried out and
it any lault were to be made it would be
on the ground that there was not enough
of it. It is not necessary to go into de

of the company, although a special

possesses a winning personality that at

A Story of Two Cattle Barons.
One of the stories of the rapid rise and
decline of the cow baron owes authorship
to Colonel Jim Britton. In the days when
Texas had a railroad commissionership,
with only ornamental functions. Colonel
Britton was appelated to fill it. While he
was commissioner, Colonel Britton went
out to Abilene. The time was the flush
period of the cattlemen. Millionaires were
thick. At one of the "excharjKea" of Abi
lene Colouel Britton was a witness to a
controversy between two of the new mil
lionaires. These cattle barons bad just re
turned from their first trips to New York,
where they had gone to get rid of some of
the profits and to have a royal time.
"Jim," snid Jake, "that's a pretty fine
watch you've got there."
"Yes," replied Jim; "I got the ticker of
a fellow in New York. Ii'b the finest in
"Well, continued Jake, drawing one
from his pocket, "here's a better one."
"Reckon not," said Jim. "What'd it
'Paid $323 for her," said Jake. "What'd
you give for yours?"
"Cost me $330," answered Jim, with a
Jake was blue over the discovery that he
didn't own the costliest watch in Abilene.
He stood holding the now despised chro
nometer in bis hand and looking at it.
Bracing up after a few momenta he said:
"There ain't much difference between 'em.
But I'll bet I can throw mine farther than
you cad youra."
Everybody laughed and looked at Jim.
The latter was not to be bluffed. Quick aa
a flash he replied, "I'll just go you one on
The crowd went out into the rocky
street. A scratch was drawn'. It was
agreed that the man who threw bis watch
the farthest Bbonld have what was left of
both watches. They threw, and the fellow
who won led the way back into the Ex
change and set up the drinks.
"A few months afterward," said Colonel
Britton, concluding the narrative, "I was
back in Abilene. I saw Jake and Jim.
Each had a Waterbury, and when he
pulled it out of bis pocket he held it in
both bands for fear it would drop on tue
floor and get hurt." St, Louis Globe-Democrat.
Theory anil Practice.
It is quite likely th:it many an observant
person has witnessed a sinTilar scene to the
one described below, since the characters
are types that are distributed worldwide.
In this case the dialogue occurred in a
thriving western city, and the particular
place was the corridor of the nostoflice. A
large, fleshy, indolent looking man came
iu, opened his lockbox, and was glancing
over his mail, when his attention was at
tracted by a wordy dispute among a group
of meu near by.
A very small, bright looking and chipper
man was doing nearly all the talking, and
evidently havuig everything his own way.
"The situation hi like this," said the
small man with great vigor, "I care not
how much money a man makes, he must
use brains in inventing it or he will die
poor. Isn't that so, colonel?"
The large man nodded indolently.
"Any fool can make money, but it takes
a wise man to keep it," observed the smail
man oracularly. "A man must read up
and keep posted on finance and business,
especially if he ventures on speculation."
"Yes," assented the large man, making a
movement to go, but the small man would
not permit it. ,
He backed the large man up against the
wall, took him by the button of his coat,
and held him there for several minutes
while he gave his views on business and
During the dissertation the large man
was manifestly uneasy, answering "Yes,"
"No" and "I shouldn't wonder," almost at
random. When he. finally escaped the
small man marched away with an air of
importance, and a stranger inquired who
"Oh, that," replied a bystander, "is Ben
Storms. He's a shoemaker, and a mighty
poor one. Kich? Oli.dear.no! Failed so
many times that he can't fail any more,
because no oue will trust him."
"And the large man?"
"That is Colonel Duval, vice president of
the D. G. R. road, owner of the marble
quarry and one of the biggest capitalists in
the state." 1 outh s Companion.
