"WILD HORSES.
f How They Catch and Manase Them in the
Far Went.
A letter from Fort Collins, Col., to J
% the Cincinnati l&vtmercial, says :
Socne of the most fascinating scenes
in the boy's book world being those in
which ice wiio. norsa ngures, it was
& with something of the old youthful
thrill that a party of us the other dav
heard our driver exclaim, "There is
Wild Horse Jerry and a lot of wild
broncos in that corral yonder." Busi:
. nesswas left to take care of itself for
the present, and we drove quickly over
to the place indicated, a rede enclosure
about hlty feet square, in which were
some uczen horses, mcstly about two !
years old, and in their appearance well
justifying iht-same applied to the na
live horses o? the west, ' broncos," the
"^.Spanish word for "rough." The dimenovel
pre&rto1ferrv> name had led us
to expect such a looting character as
adorns the initial page of that class of
literature, or the second-rate stage;
but we found him. and his two partners

ever cut throat"?merely dressed in
the usual local costume of men who
, follow an out-door life of any kind
here?broad felt- hat, blue flannel shirt,
and " overhauls " thrust into a pair of
heavy cowhide boots. And they were
quite genial and communicative, and
as we sat safely perched on the top rail
ci the corral waiting for operations to
begin, they told us hew they chase the
bands of wild horses on the platte, not
taking them with the lasso, at full.

_ The 'Ibraj^t^^^tne^way, is a vary
fsfporiant thing to the cattle and
horsemen, owing to the risk of the
animals stroying and the difficulty of
otherwise identifying them; and the
law here, in this respect at least, is
always vindicated, both by the courts ;
and by "Judge Lynch," with prompt
ness ana seven ty against any wao may
dare attempt to infringe u the property
rights thus indicated. A brand
when choscn must be approved by the
county authorities and then registered, !
care being tahen to allow none similar
to existing brands or liable to be
altered into them. It is usually some
peculiar device, an H with an inverted
V over it-, for instance; and having i
been executed in iron of the dimensions
ct some four or fivo inches
square, more or less, it is applied red
^ hot to the animal's side in some ccn3picuous
spot. The herds that graze on
t'-ie plains are gone over yearly for thi*
purpose, and the annual " rcTisd-ups,"
\ or meeting of bc-rds and herdsman to
v effect this and also to sort out and rei^^"sdaini
"straps," are occasions of great
lob?l interest.

bad arrayed just as the men were about
to cut out a fine-looking black mare
for the pr*rpose of hobbling her, she
having showijj a disposition to lead the
others into rr^iscbief, and it was with
no desire of changing places with the
men that we taw them enter the corral
on foot amongst thfr wild animals with '
their lariats, three-ouarter inch ropes
of great suppleness, v,ith a running
noose some six feet in.length hanging
on their left arms. The horses setmed
to know that something w-is about to j
happen and immediately began charg- j
ing wildly around the incicoccre, and it;
appeared impossible that the men could
retain their places a moment'wiihout j
being crushed ; but the brutes seemed j
to recognize "the higher power," and

coercive powers they had already felt,
as the double "fish-hook" brands on
their flanks 'testified. And now the
noose in Jerrv's right hand began to
circle horizontally over his head at J
arm's length, and the horses to plunge
more mildly than ever around the corral.
Suddenly a quick, forward motion
of the arm is seen, and the noose
flies tcward th- intended victim, but a
sudden swerve causes it to fall short,
and the whole drove gallop wildly to a
remote corner. But now they are again
cfovfor? fV>c? nnnco smrirxrc t.liis f.iTnA
drops over ihe m&re's neck. The
weight of a second man is immediately
thrown upon the rope and the straggle
begins, the mare wildly pluDgiag and
rearing, and the men resisting, nDtil it
wonid seem that the animal must
either s*r<aigle herself or break her
neck. But in a moment another noose
is thrown, tiiis time catching her hind
legs ; and as she plunges again, a sudden
pull throws her fairly on her side,
her head is caught-, and she is vanquished.
The hobbler, a long chain,
is then attached to her right fore foot,
and the ropes then being quickly and
skillfully removed, she scrambles again
to her ieet, erect once more, but shorn
of lier power for mischief.
The native horses raised by the
herders are all handled in this -way, j
rough as it seems. When one is to be
broken to the saddle, he is blindfolded
alter being thrown, in which
condition he is perfectly submissive.
The saddle, a strange complex of
leather, hi. h peaks, enormous stirrup
leathers, fringed tassels, coiled lariat
<&c., is tLen strapped on, the bridle
forced into place, and the rider, armed
with cruel looking spurs, with barbed
points of the circumference of a silver
dollar, leaps into place. The blindfold
is then removed, and tbe struggle
begins, precluded usually bv the
wildest plunging, rearing and buck
irtg, the latter consisting of a rapid I
series of vertical leaps with legs rigid, :
and very tiring to the rider's endurance
and tenure of liis seat, the best of tnem '
having no hesitation in "holdingon" !
at such times by a strap regularly pro-'
vided for the purpose. If he maintain
his seat through all this, a wild gallop
usually follows, protracted by the spur-!
ring of the remorseless rider until the
animal has thoroughly learned, once i
for all, the power of the master. And :
so docile are they that the wildest become
in a few weehs as tractable as if they ;
had been in training for years, and will
stand for hoars where left, saddled aiid
bridled, quietly awaiting their master's i
_. return.
Owing to the>"r light weight and inferior
quality, the use under the saddle
is the chief one to which they are put,
and to which their ea-y and untiring ;
gait is particularly adapted. All the
heavier draft and road work is done I
either by horses of eastern stock or by j
their much abused half-brother, the!
mule, who though he may occasionally j
use his legs, as Josh Billings said, j
" two to stand ou and two to
kick with," is, when decently handled, ;
not onlv as sagacious, kind and affectionate
.as horse, bnt much hardier and j
simpler in his wants.

A. minister, who was perhaps not too
careful in his habits, was induced by
bis friends to take the teetotal pledge.
Bis health appeared to suffer, and his
doctor ordered him to take one glass of
punch daily.
" Oh!" said he, "I dare not. Peggy,
my old housekeeper, would tell the
whole parish."
" When do you shave ?" the doctor
a^ked.
"In the morning."

The "C?ol?Jea Tread" ol Sheep.
Mnch has been said and written about
the golden tread of the sheep, but we
must remember tnat it depends ^together
where it treads as to whether the
tread is golden or otherwise. Of conrse
on light land under the plow the tread
of the sheep is beneficial in consolidating
the land, neither is it so heavy as t j
poach it; the even distribution oi
manure, too. by sheep is a well-known
advantage. But it is the close cropping
of the sheep on newly-kid gra$s-l*nd,
or upon the best meadows, which does
so much harm. Good pastures on which
oxen are fed, are injured by sheep,
wliich reject the coarsest grasses and
pick out the finest.

The short corn crop, -with the sever*
drought which has prevailed in variou;
part"; of the country, must render stocl
feed scarce and high priced during thi
fait and winter, and henca the neces

use of all kinds of forage. In speaking
of this n.atitr a Chicago paper says
"TVia ewwitv nf iW<i fhr-r hisrli tiric<

and inferior cattle to market, when
they bring from a dollar and a-half t<
two dollars per hundred pounds lesi

The long debated questions as to th<
best material ior stable floors, is bein^
again revived. A clay floor was adherec
to by some for years, and such was thf
earnestness of its advocates and th<
many arguments brought to bear upoi
it, that we were induced some twenty
years ago to try it. In three or fou:
months we had the planks back again
being satisfied of the disadvantages o
clay for this purpose. Our presen
floor of plans; is simply inclined alitth
from front to rear, where the usual gut
ter is made to carry off the liquid void
ings. We dv, not believe in sand, coa
ash est sawdust, asphaltum, flags, cob
ble stones, or any of these modern de
vices to injure horses. Thus far w<
have never noticed that this little in
clination was in any way injurious; anc
we doubt whether the wooden grating

would be no more comfortable, whih
this moveable grating or second fioo:
might lead to accidents. "When a persox
can keep horses in good, sound, healthy
condition for five to seven years, a:
we have done on a carefully constructed
plank flooring, inclining a little to th<

with it. Do what one will, hoi s vril

"Some of our readers," says the Horn*
"Weekly, "may think this a contradiction
but ic is quite possible to grov

obstacle to it is the general mcthoc

fattened for so long a time that they seen
to have taken on only lean meat enongl
to hold the body together. Excep
when on grass the pig is plied aimosi
wholly with corn, which is excessively
rich in starch and fat. Some breed:
have become so constituted that they
will get fat on grass. The* pig in it:
natural state does not get excessively
fat, but is nearly as lean as a beef ani

genous food, Mich as skimmed railk anc
grass, they will be found to grow rap
idly, extend the frame and muscula:
system and having only fat enough t<

Pigs should always be full fed, but this
does not necessarily mean cramming
with corn, which merely piles on fat
till the young pig becomes diseased. I

*! Professor Agassiz's discoveries in raid- | 1
j ; ocean, where he found that minute j s
a | corpuscles threw oil their sheiis, and j v
* these, growing together, formed im- j $
mense deposits, it is not surprising that j v
Professor Rodagash, of Stockholm, (t.
^ whom we met in Gettingen last year, j e
, should appear with a new species of bug, j s
^ which might be considered as a descen- ; a
1 dant of the prehistoric tree bug and 1 t
which is now found in coal in greatj T
quantities and threatens to undermine ^
3 many valuable coal beds. "It is very 1
2 noticeable,"said ProfessorHechelmeyer, v
"that the so-called coal dust is peculiar | t
on account of its round appearance. d
Upon examination with the microscope j t
it was found that these particles are j c
g I covered with millions of these cimex \ I
j anihracitus. "Each one is about the size j v
i of the head of a needle, fiat in appear- j t
_ I anoe, and are plentiful at the bottom j i
* ; of coal veins, from whence they work j v
* ; their way to the top, making holes in j s
| the mineral and rendering it- almost 1'
j unfit ior use. 'The male is of gray 5
! : black color, and has ?;ix spots on his t
^ back. The female is broad and has v
g nine spots. But why these spots vary ! e
9 in the sexes is something that has puz-! v
2 j zled the scientific men who have ex- j v
^ | amined them." The Professor went on ! e
a ; at length to give a description of these ! |
bugs and their evil propensities. He j s
I\ said that coal oil was but another form i ^
* j of these insects, but that in this liquid ^
* j state they had become crushed, and t
j those that escaped forced their way to ^
i the surface, where they were found. *'
? j "You have often noticed," said the Pro- s
!; fessor, "that when coal is first placed k
r ; upon a firs, or when it is ignited, there j r
'! is a crackling, hissing noise, and pieces i ^
\ \ fly about the grate or range. Thatis j J
~ caused by the death struggles of these j f1

A Fight Between Sea Monsters,
A Newfoundland correspondent
ritec a vivid account of a fight which i
e witnessed between sea monsters :: t
)n a lovely afternoon in July I steed j
pon the bank of a loftlv clitf on that j f
art of the c.ast "between Placentia !

As I stood like everything ab-nc me, | c

oon.a sound as of innumerable and gen- i I

nd looking I saw that myriads of fi?hes, j
od and the lesser creatures on which j c
he former preyed, had risen to the sur- j a
ice and were "breaching." The tap- j
?ing sound was made by beating the c
rater with their tails and fins. Such a ; a
cene is not uncommon; but almost j
imultaneously with this I heard a'
loIIow, whistling sound, and saw a | *
olumn of spray rise like a geyser,
bout li feet from the water. I saw
hen that a whale had risen among the c
tshes, and with his monster, gaping

if the breaching fishes, and was about j 2

wallow his prey piecemeal, wher. two j n
ither creatures appeared upon the:
cene. They were the united and im- ! e
>lacable foes of the whale, the sword-: I
tsh and thrasher. The sword-fish is a : 1
ong, litli9 creature, armed with a long,;
iard substance protruding from its j j
nout, resembling a sword, from which : a
1 derives its name; the thrasher is a : j
pecies of sea-shark or fox-shark. It j
ras evident that they had come for the j ,
louble purpose of mating war upon the j
?-hale and getting some of the feast for j
hemselves. In the space it takes the j ^

A Rotable Chinese Scroll. *
The CLinese merchants in San Fran- *
isco have lately received from the em- 1
eror of China a handsome scroll in re- a
ognition of the contributions sens by s
aern to the victims of the Chinese *
imine three years ago. The scroll is e
Dur feet high and twelve feet long.
'he surface is entirely cross-grained and |
idented with miniature squares formed 3
y lines running from opposite corners. *
'hese squares, uniformly covered with ^
Id gold, stand out in bold relief by leans
of a darker shade of gilt with bich
the lines are traced. Four large t
Jhinese letters in ebony are carved at *
egular intervals across the face of the c
croll, around which is a rich border of 1
.owers and fruits. The scroll itself is 1
iclosei bj a deep, wide frame, upon s
*hich is carved a large number of alio- *
orical figures, so wrought and blended 4
Dgether as to appear to have been made ?
f one solid piece of wood. At the c
jwer corners are placed two figures of *
Ihinese gentlemen, each holding a
word, the upper corners being devoted 1
d two maidens, each having a tambour- x
He in hand, and depending from which *
> a long veil, completely encircling ]
heir body. The space intervening be- i
cveen the figures is blocked with dark 1
lass, so that under an artificial light *
lie effect is very beautiful. The im *
eriai present has caused a commotion a

Not only is the interest charged I

lodged is much greater. Indeed, it is i
lie usual practice for people to send 1

ammer garments when the cold north

abit of doing this, not because they a

las pawn-shops afford the safest, most v

wardrobe they can procure. Not only 1

u: they have also the use of a certain f
mount of money, wftich, as a rule, they i
re able to lay out at a considerably
igher interest iiian that which they s
avc to allow to the pawn-broker. That *
ae arrangement does not tend to the c
ndue advantages oj a class of usurers, I
nt really benefits the community, is I
roveu by the result; for, although
'hinahas been called "the land of pawnroking,"
there are fewer unredeemed
ledges there than in any other country,

Ti;c Last of the Jltmmac. j r
Tbo Llerrimac was lying off Tanner's c

inch water for the river. She bad no v
alot for any other river or harbor, a
lost of her ballast was gone and it was ?

The Merrimac was ran ashore on s

Plants that Eat Animals. ,
We have all heard of animals that 1
sat plants, but only recently have we !
earneu ui [Jiauu* wim* aavc un auijjuaus j
Jut recently, I mean within t'ue last j
wentv years. That these queer plants ;
lo really devour very small insects is ;
sow an established fact of natural his-:
ory.
Iq 1860 Mr. Darwin, a man who 1
tudie3 tlieso wonderful things, and j
hen very kindly publishes book-: about j
phat he has learned, so that other peo-!
>le may also study them, began to i
lotice some curious things about these j
lingular plants, and then turned his at- j
ention to a study of them. He spent a j
jreat many hours watching the plant3 !
md their behavior. Day after day he I
vould continue, till finally he had the ;
Measure of knowing so much about j
he subject that he put it in a book.
Many other naturalists have been i
itudying these curious plants both be-'
ore and since the publication cf Mr. '
Darwin's book. In New Jersey, North .
Carolina, and other states, as well as in ;
England, these plants are to be found, j
[here are several varieties of them, but I
! have room in this article to give yon j
tn account of them in only a general
nanner, and very briefly at that.
The leaves of these plants form a!
rind of month, and this mouth the j
jlants can open when they choose, j
Che leaves are the lips, and inside the i
nouth is a sort of throat. This throat j
ixtends downward toward the body of i
he plant, and has inside it a great j
nany little bits of very short beard, which
.re cJ j.?e together and very fnzzv. In j
;ome throats are at least two hundred of j
hese little hairy bits. At the end of j
;ach of these is a sticky substance some-'
rhat like common mncilage.
Now. when the plant opens his mouth, i
rou see the trap is already set. All he i
las to do is to keep his mouth open, j
3y an accident a fir alights on the plant j
-or a bng, or some other small insect
-and the mo;nent it does so sticks fast
o the gummy substance the plant is all
he time making, and is caught. Fly
)f? he cannot, and the more he tiies to
nove the more he fastens himself to
;he sticky substance. The plant is now
mre of a meal, for the moment a fly, a
>ug, or other substance touches the
hroat, the mouth of the plant begins to
hut, the leave?, or lips, immediately |

o death.
Then the plant eats1 the insect very ;
nuch as you eat a bit of meat. The !
pay yon and I eat is this: We swallow j
he food, and the stomach digests it for !
is by means of what we call gastric j
uice. This gastric j nice is a sour and:
jitter liquid, which cuts the food we
lave swallowed up, and makes pulp of
t. Then the glands of our stomachs
ibsorb, or drink up, this fluid, and it
joes into the blood and gives us health
cd strength.
In the same way Mr. Plant eats the
ly or bug. A sort of sour and bitter
nice starts from the leaves on the in-!
iide and cuts the bug into pieces, and ]
hen into a sort of a jelly; and after
his the glands, of which the plant is
rery full, suck this jelly or liquid up
icd carry it all over the plant, and give
ife and strength and vigor to all its i
>arts.
As soon as one insect is eaten in this i
cne leaves open again and the trap !
s set for another. How many an enter- j
/rising plant of average industry will i
latch and devonr in a day I do not ex- j
.ctly know. I suppose it depends cn i ,
he number of them in the air.
The plants are not over particular j
,bout'heir diet, and will take beef, an;!
gg, geletine, and many other things |
if that natnre. At the same time, they .
Lave some choice about their food, and '
rill not eat grass, starch, oil, or anything !

Who Were the Sound-Builders.
Dr. W. Da Haas, after a careful ex- ; :
.mination of the supposed connection

.ncient races of Mexico, has come to : [
he conclusion that it does not exist, ; i
le considers that tho former people j \
rere but little advanced beyond the j ;

lifferent. In the discussion that fol- <
owed the'readingof Dr. De Haas'paper j
ii the American Asssociation Jndge i
Henderson objected to thetermamound- j *

dea. There is no evidence, he said, : J
fhich will justify us in separating the j j
.ncient and more modern races, not a j <
ingle fearure peculiar to the so-called j
nound-builders. The speaker had ; }
tarted out in the study of American I i
.rehrcology with the impression that j J
hese people were distinct and separate i \
rom the Indians, but he had been com-!
jelled by the force of facts to relinquish .
he theory. It was improper to talk | c
.bout these people as mysterious, icr;
hey were no more mysterions than the j
Jbawnees, the Natchez, the Tensas, and j
ither tribes. The cloth found in their j
rorks was like that made by every tribe ! ]
rom the lakes to the gulf, even less fine "

Profusion.
IlaWs Journal of ITealih, referring to Consumption,
makes the following important statement:
" Consumption usually begins -with a slight, dr3
:ongh in the morning, then, on going to bed, gettin?
more and more frequent, with more and more
ihlegm, increasing debility, thinness of flesh, shortness
of breath, and quickness of pulse. In fata!
cases its average course is about two years; henct
the importance of arresting the disease at as early e
stage as possible, and the sooner rational means ara
employed for this purpose the greater the chance ol
success. The disease is owing to an irritation commoiicinsr
in the throat and extending to the lungs, sc
that their action is interfered with, and the blood
does not receive sufficient oxygen to purify it. The
most marked sign of lung disease is emaciation; and
the most positive indication of returning health is
increase in weight."
So speaks Hairs Journal of Health, and we may add
that in desperate cases, and, in fact, in all cases ol
Consumption, or troubles of the throat and lungs,
immediate relief may be obtained and a permanent
cure effected by tho use of Dr. Win. Hall's Balsam
for the Lungs, a medicine known for more than
thirty-five years as an unfailing remedy for coughs,
colds, bronchitis and all pulmonary and pectoral
diseases. That the worst cases of Consumption have
been cured by the use of Hall's Balsam has been attested
to by the thousands who have used it, or have
been cognizant of its wonderful remedial efficacy.

It .s unnecessary for me to enumerate the diseases
'or which Vkokttn'k should be used. I know of no
lisease which will not admit of its use with good results.
Ainiost innumerable complaints are caused
>y poisonous secretions in the blood, which can be
ntir.-Iy cxi>ellea from the system by tfcj use of
I'EGi.TfNK. AVheu the blood is perfectly cieansed the
lisease rapidly yields, all pains cease, healthy action
s promptly restored and the patient is cured.

The ecr.r.-c o? kidn-y disease may thus bo
: traced. First, "inactivity. then iii.iun-.mation,
then degeneranon, finally destruction of the
orga:t<-." A gentle stimulus, such as afforded
by Xlo-trttor's Stomach Bitter-, is oftentimes
the uuuuostioncd means of preventing ona of
those numerous maladies to which the kidneys
and .-Wadder are subject, and which are so
prcno to terminate suddenly and fatally. Xepbitis,
Bmht's disease, diabetes, catarrh and
stone of the bladder are all maladies which,
even in their inception, are well calculated to
arouse the graves: apprehension?, but which
may be checked at the outset with this benign
preventive, which is also a line restorative of
i general vigor, an anti-malarial specific, and a
remedy for dyspepsia, liver complaint, constipation,
rheumatism and nervousness. It is
thoroughly reliable and safe, and a fine tonic

Fokks are mentioned in a charter of Ferdi|
nand I., of.Spain, 1101. They were introduced
j into England in the sixteenth century.
Consumption in its early stages is readily
| cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's "Golden
j Medical Discovery," though, if the lung-j are
i wasted no medicine will effect a cure. No
known remedy possesses such soothing and
healing influence over all scrofulous, tuberculous
and pulmonary affections as the "Discovery."
John Willis, of Elvria, Ohio, writes:
" The ' Golden Medical Discovery' does positively
cure consumption, as, alter trying every
other medicine in vain, this succeeded." Mr.
Z. T. Phelps, of Cathbert, Ga., writes: "The
' Golden Medical Discovery' has cured my wife
of bronchitis and incipient consumption."
