TUM PRAIRIE ON FIRM.
"Tum out. Fred, turn out! Joo says
there ia ii herd ot buffaloes in sight
from tho next riso of land. Biggest
kimi of a liordl Ho lively now, or you'll
losu your buffalo skin.'' I opened my
eyes sloopily na Frank grasped mv
nrin, but was on my foot boforo ho hail
Ihiishod speaking. Joe, our guido sud
cook, a half-breed Sioux, was hurried
ly boiling our oolloo, and Qoorgo was
getting tho guns in proper order. Wo
were on our first buffalo hunt, and it
was my highest ambition Just thou to
tacuro ii pair of horus lo mount and a
robe IUlitio from tho skin of a b?llalo
killed by myself, lt did not tako us
long io swallow a hasty breakfast. In
lifioen minutes wo wcro ready to start.
"Rere," said Joo, as wo galloped
over (he risc of ground.
Not A milo away wo saw tho herd
(??ding contentedly near n small slroum
that passed us on tho right. Joo sud
denly swerved irotn tho diroct courso
?mi fullowod tho bank of tho stroam,
go wo wero partly hidden from view.
1 shall never forget it! Talk of "buck
fever" on a moose hunt! That is not
to bo compared to what an amateur
hllllter feels whoa ho socs a thousand
or moro buffaloes.
"Como now," Joo said, as wo stop
ped opposite tho herd, felt for our car
tridges, and tightennd our saddlo
girths. We gavo tho liory littlo mus
tangs tiio roin nud thoy sprang for
ward with a snort of excited joy. Per
haps they remembered wheo thoy too
wera as froo and unfettered as tho herd
boioro us. Tho wind was right for us
i-and wo approached quito nonr with
out being seen. Thon ono groat bull,
glaring from beneath his shaggy mano,
f;uvo tho alarm, and soon thoy all woro
n motion. Tho reports of lour lilies
rang out sharply, and ono buffalo foll
to tao earth. Wo had all missed our
gamo but Joo! On wo dashed closo at
thu hoids of tho roar ones, whooning
liko madmen and firing into tho bellow
ing muss ns rapidly ns possible, loav
lng tho doad and dying beiiind us. I
singled out a wounded bull that was
painfully galloping niter his wounded
comrades. I was not suro I had wound
ed him; but Iiis horns and liido took
my fancy, and I dotorminod lo finish
and claim him. Moro than onco 1 was
savod by tho quickness of my watch
ful mustaug as ho charged ut mo dos
{lorately. Otico his shaggy mano
Hushed my log, but, as ho turned
nguiu, a lucky shot laid him low, and
tho corded prize was won. 1 had
beril so interested in my own gamo
that 1 hud not thought to walch tho
other*. 1 snw thom now, nearly a
milo away, still pursuing tho herd.
And I saw something olso too, some
thing which I was at first unable to
understand, but which sent a thrill of
horror through my reins when I com
prehended its mo-nlng.
My horso sniffc tho air orcitodly,
his oyos wild and uneasy and rnoring
to and fro as ho neighod nervously for
his companions. Away in the distanco
where tho prairie met tho sky in ft
honied, qutveriug line arose ft dark,
warering cloud, small at first, but rsp
idly'sproading. ' Tutus the prairie on
fire! Tho wind was blowing almost a
galo directly lowurd us. und tho long,
doad grnrs was as dry as tinder. Joo
saw lt Wit^ ihout to warn tho oth
or? ho wheeld,3 horso and galloped
toward ino, creely followed by George
and Frank. Tho buffaloes saw it also.
Tho black mass moved slowor, and
finally turnod and followod my frionds
as they had been following thom a tow
moments before. Our dangor was now
more lu hoing trampled to death than
in hoing burned. I leaped to tho ground
to start a "baok lire," but found that I
had loft orory routoh in camp.
"No match," cried Joe, as they
neared the placo whoro I stood. "Get
on horse-run much fast- Dovil's run
-sarod." " ,
"Devil's run is ton milos away," I
answered blankly, as I sprang into the
.addle. "Haren't you any matches
oither, boysP"
"Not ti match. I don't soo what in
the dlokens wo woro all thinking
about," said George
"Of the buffaloos," said Frank. "All
we ean do ia to run for it now."
The mustangs knew their danger as
woll as we, and needed no urging.
east a regretful glance at my pmev
my first buffalo-as wo galloped away.
Wo could plainly smell the burning
grass, and tho dark, rolling smoke
overcast the sky ?boro our heads.
On came tho buffaloes, shaking the
ground with the thunder of many feet.
Joe mattered something in his lingo,
nod hie face grew ashou as he looked
back at tho herd, which was now so
near that we could seo the flecks of
foam that flew from tboir mouths. Bat
it needed no words to tell us that oar
timo had como! We felt that all WM
lost? when th? herd suddenly divided
to tb? right and left. A moment more
amt w? were between the lnmberlng
massos, which loft a elear space as they
thundered by us, closing in again M

Like a promise of sato ty tho slabby

in Hie distance. "Can we nuke ii.
Joe?" 1 shouted as I thought 1 read
hope in his swarthy fae?. "Me mo so,"
ho answered with indian meouicisin,
but ho bowed low upou his horse's
neck and drove tho spurs into Illa reek
ins sides.
Ihne-four miles were passed.
Could our gallant mustangs cover ibo

contused medley of sounds behind ns,
tho roaring, squealing, nolgidng, ami
rumbling-?ll mingled in one horrid
din. The smoke-wreal hs whirled
around us, and we could not seo how
Dear the wild horses were. My eyes
seemed to bo starting from their sock
ots from tho smarting heat, and my
horse's breath wu- q.lick and laborud
as he Staggered bravely on. Joe rode
straight for the fording-phtee. Frank,
and George, and 1 gave a cheer as the
cool water splashed in oar faces, and
if ever mortal man was thankful we
wero thankful then. But tho danger
was not over. Although tho wild
horses, mad with terror, ?lid not know,
perhaps, of the nearness nf water, they
were blindly rushing Hie rig'il way.
"Come!1 commanded tho half-breed,
as ho turned up ihn stream. We were
still in sight ol tho ford whoo tho
horses rcaoho.1 it. Even in that mo
ment of peril 1 foll keen regret and
covetousness, as I gazed upon their
proud bounty.
Wo drew undor tho overhanging
bunk and waited in breathless anxiety
to seo whether they would choose to
go up tho stream or down, knowing
thal instinct would teach them lo keep
to the water. Ono niairnilieent fellow
tossod his silken mano in the air as ho
espied us, and stood there a second or
