w7he Cowboy's 6110.
In the windy, bleak nights when
the rain falls ia torrents or the snow,
flying in clouds, seems to cut asunder
all that comes before It, the cowboy
has the greatest obstacles to over
come. These are the nights when a
sudden stampede miaht destroy all
the rounding-up work of weeks pre.
Mounted on his best bronco, the
cowboy rides out to his post on the
outskirts of the gathered herd, miles
away, perhaps, from the camp. As
the wind whistles in hoarse cadence
along the surface of the ground and
through the sage-bush, his dull chant
doats over to the uneasy herd.
A few steers, made restless by the
co'd, start to wander away from the
zathering place, and through the
blackness of the night the cowbow
sees their moving forms. Without
ceasing the song he moves gently
past them., and they are turned back
to the thousands they have attempted
to leave. Once in a while a steer es
capes, to return again at break of
lay, but the general stampede seldom
But when a stampede does occur
the cowboy's nerve is t:ied to the ut
most. "Milling" a stampede is onz
:f the most dang-rerous operations that
i cowboy has to endure. To mill the
cattle is to get them goingin acircle,
and letting them run tbemselves

them is for some bold fellow to mount

Anecdote of Jmsmaren.
A story concerning Prince Bis
march has just been brought to light
by the publication of the memoirs of
the late Duke of Somerset. The Duke,
writing of Dr. Busch's book of gossip
about the great German Chancelor,
relates that Busch was employed by
the Prince to prepare articles for the
newsocners and to record his sayings.
One day Busch sent to the newspapers
something Crown Prince Frederick
~aad said, upon which Bismarck sent
for the doctor and expostulated, "I
told you to publish what I said, not
what that fool of a Crown Prince
says." "Well," replied Busch, "may

From the very beginning of the
modern European coni uest and coloni
zation, the "Indian" names have been
invested chiefly with what is purely a
fanciful and conjectural orthography
in their English writings. There has
been no surviving testimonial, in either
living or dead tongues, fixing the
definite expression of the ancient words
just as the native man would have
written them had he been possessed of
the proper facilities.
Sometimes the old native namea
have been made to appear unnecessarily
grotesque in their writing-in some
instances as much so as the rude savage
himself appears personally-the fact
illustrated in the writing Youghioghe
ney for simply Ya-og-ha-ha, and in
Esquemeaux for Es-ka-mo. Many
purely poetic garbs of the old words
have become incorporated into our
permanent geographical literature.

of the old aboiiginal titles: the former
is supposed to have been in sound.

The Baggage Car In Persia.
As the Persians know how to travel
in their own country, we have adopted
their fashion of carrying valises and
small trunks, and have invested in two
pairs of long carpet sacks, in which
these articles are packed. Each sack
is called a "ma-fresch," and two of
them are a load for a horse, one being
placed each side of the saddle, with
the weight carefully adjusted. These
receptacles are usually made of velvety
Persian carpeting, six feet in length
by eighteen inches in depth and
width, shaped like long narrow boxes,
with stout leather handles at each end,
and a multitude of straps and buckles.
In these sacks all the packages and
valises are placed, water-proof bags
with bedding, our iron camp-bedsteads,
stools, tables, and carpets, are laid on
the top, and after being tightly
strapped up, they are lifted into place
by the combined efforts of all the men,
2nd corded on to the bulky pack sad
lies of the horses. Provisions, wine
ind cooking utensils are carried in
two quaint chests, made in a Tabreez
>azar, covered with stamped red leath
or, and provided with short legswhich
>revent the cords from slipping off.

Sund earthen water jars. Each of these
weather-beaten old horses, with head
stall of fringed leather, straps and
bridle ornamented with shells and blue
beads, and his worn pack saddle,
shredded and patched with many colors
like a beggar's mantle, is a wonderful
ly interesting study of color. Around
their necks, among the many-hued
tassels, or from their sides, are hung
bells, and bells within bells. Our
march through Persia was attended by
their monotonous but not discordant
music. For at night, while we slept
in the tent, the horses, tethered in a
long row to a cord outside, munched
steadily at the chopped straw in their
nose bags, and in our waking moments
we were conscious of the same chimes
which we had heard through the day.
Each chavadar, clothed in patched and
faded blue, or enveloped in heavy felt
vercoat, to keep off the chill of early
morning, his face burnt and tanned to
a rich mahogany tint, is a type of the

At this time of year, when every

would be good wherever it Is spent,
says Kate Field's Wash'ngton. An
entire international currency Is a
boon reserved for our grandchildren,

value say of *2.50 would be an
immense convenience to travelers. A
moderate sum in such coins would

We can write by electricity, can

distance by means of the electric wire. f
When the British Association visited t
Newcastle, England, says the Chronicle t
of that city, Professor Perry told his I
auditors that seeing by Alectricity was
a possibility of the future, and he had I
shortly before drawn a picture of l
scientific achievements which would 1
enable friends divided by large conti- E
ments and oceans, not onlyto talk with
each other, but to look upon their fea- 1
tures, Even before that Professo
Bell was known to have been at work s
in his laboratory endeavoring to solve i
.the problem, and though ten yeare b
ave elapsed since the possibility of
pplying the well-known principles cd
'ght in the same way as the principles
of sound have been applied as in the a
telephone was first suggested, the pro
fessor is still as hopeful of success as 9
ever. There is no theoretical reason IP
why light may not be conducted in thb 1
same way as sound, but Professor Bell '
tells us that it will be very much more F
difficult to construct an appal.tus f*
,the purpose, owing to the immensel,
greater rapidity with which the vibra- I
tions of light take place when com
pared with the vibrations of sound. I
The difficulty, however, is merely one
of finding a diaphragm sufficiently sen
itive to receive these vibrations am]
produce the corresponding electrical
vibrations, and it is encouraging to
have it on the authority of such a man
as Professor Bell that at least a dozen
men, eminent in science in various
parts of the world, are at present en
gaged in endeavoring to find the sola- P
tion of this problem. Professor Bell 1
himself, who has never ceased to grap- C
ple with the difficulty, candidly admite
that up to the present his labors have 9
been in vain, but he is full of hopeful
'ness as to the successful issue of his
own research, as well as that of the b

As the wire leaves the roller it passes
etween two matched dies until it

he dies come together and clamp it

to make this soup of an uncooked
turkey, which is much more valuable

roast turkey. Break them and cover
hem with two quarts of beef stock.
Water will do, but beef stock Is the
best. Let the soup simmer slowly
tor four flours, then strain the soup,
separate the meat from the bones
making it into force meat balls. To
lo this mince the meat as fine as pos"
