Stock-raising in the \Wes- began to
be a business at about the close of the
Civil War, when meat, as well as other
kinds of food, increased so much in
price. The Mexicau rauchers in Texa
owned immense herds of semi-wild
cattle of inferior breed, which roamed
over the prairies in herds of fi-omn fifty
to one huudred thousand, of little
value to their owners in the absence
of a market. When beef began to he

bunches of cattle from Texas over the
weary trail which has since become
historic, for the use of the Northeru

barns or corrals is necessary, nor is it
indispensable to store winter food.
Black and white gamma grass, bunch
and mesquite grasses, grow on plateau
and valley, mesa and mountain so
abundantly that after the rains of July
and August the country rolls a billowy
sea of living green. Gamma grass is
htock-raising in the Soutiiwest ter
ritories, where the conditions for the
industry are so favorable, and where
-so little capital is required, is an at
tractive occupation. The intending
stockman, supposing him to have
about $3000 eapital, either t-akes
"squatter's right," by building a hut
on unsurveyed land, or buys 160 acres

than $400: Provisions bought, there

d1owboys may be 'divided into two
classes-those recruited from Texas
and other States on the eastern slope,
und Mexicans from the Southwestern
region. Mexicans are unrivalled as
cowboys-splendid riders, hardy, born
to the business-but they have a b~ad
reputation, and are quarrelsome and
unreliable. Americans are perhaps
less skilled, but they are more order
ly. The cowboy tracks his animals as
Indians do game; dismounting, he
leads his pony and follows patiently
faint tracks in the dust-which, after
aUl, may prove to be those of unshod
The most important matter for the
stockmnan is how to get his cattle. He
can buy them "on the range," which
is the quickest but the most expensive
way. The cattle are bought so many
head, "moretor less," but this mnode
leaves a good many open ings for shar p
witted guile, to which the novice usay
fall a victim. The best way fo:- the
newly arrived settler is to make a con
tract with some responsible drover for

of the cows to have calves, the pur
chaser to be free to reject any animtal~s
znot in good condition when delivered
at his ranch.
The third way of procuring stock,
which was originally the only one, is
to go to Texas, Oregon, or Utah, the
* three best sources from which to draft
cattle. buy the animals in "bunches"
from different owners, and start home
ward with them as soon as the spring
- sun causes the grass to crop up on the
prairies. Riding on trail is aauunder

a trapper and some of the astuteness
of a commander, adroitness, firmness,

regions, are terrifying to cattle. On
the approach of one, the herd should
be collected in as small a space as
possibie, while the men shoulb con

each other in tones not too loud; for,
like horses, cattle derive courage from
the v-oice ail presenceof man. Sune

In British Central Africa, although
it was supposed that giraffes were to
be found along the Loaugwa River,
noi authentic information had been
watained util recently, when a giraffe
wssoby a European prospector in
the Marimba district, and its skin was
sent to an army otticer, whlo shipped
it to the British Museum. The exist
ece of the giraffe in Marimba is (con
sidered remarkable, the area in whkich
they are found being v-ery limited, and
the number of animais seemis to be
very small.- When the one in ques

five was seen. The nearest distance
north of Marimba in which giraffes
are known to exist is north of Mareres,
while on the south, Matabeleland is
the nearest giraife country.

are steer hides, calf skins, goat skins
and others, which are prepared each
in one certain way.
"The green skins comc from the
reat stock vards in hicago and
kansas City to the tannery, which is
enerally Ibuilt on the bank of a pure
stream ~and nlear woodland. At the
tannery.tike hides are at once placed
in great vats tilled with fresh cold
water, and left there to soak fo-: two
or three days. The water tends to
soften them. Then the skius are put
in a long trough and run through a
sort of slide, while heavy hauinerS
pound them to a greater softness and
pliability. Water is played on thema
in a steady stream. When the work
in the trough is finished the hides are
placed back in the vats, and they soak
there a little more: for a day or so.
The next move is to keep them four
or five days in the sweat pits. The
sweat piis are (aig out inl the sides of
the hills and the skins are hung up ill

"Do plants think?" said a St. Mary

son or any way of determining what
is going on acound themns The ques
tions seem rather fantastic, I admit,
but they are prompted by sonme very
curious observations made at mcy home
only a few weeks ago.
"My daughter, who is very fond of
lowers, has a morning glory vine
growing in a box on her windo w leage.
While watering it recently she no
teed a delicate tendril reaching out
toward a nail in the side casing. She
marked the position of the tendril in
penil on the wood, and then shifted
the nail abotut an inch lower. Next
day the little feeler had deilected it
sef very noticeably. and was again
heading for the nail. The marking
and shifting were r'epeated four or
five times, always with the same re
sults, and finally one night the ten
di, w hich had grown consideralbly,
managed to reach the covete-1 sup
port, and we found it coiled tightly
around it. Meanwhile another bun ch
of tendrils had been making for a
hook that was formierly used for a
thermometer. Just before it reached
its destiuation my daughter strnng a
cord across the window sash directly
above. It was a choice, then, be
tween tbe old love and the newv. and
as a morning glory ailways seemis to
prfra cord to anything else, it
wasn't lon~g in making up its mind.
Ina very few hours the pale, er'isp
little ~tendrils-which, by the way,
convey a satrprising sugg'estion of
human fingers-had commenced to lift
toward the twine. Next day they
reached it. and took such a firm grip
that I don't believe they possibly
ould have been disengaged without
