Neal proceeded to cat his dinner,

had of his brothers presence, as
he states if, was the throwing open
of the door and the firing; of a shot

dodged. Mrs. M. says that previ

the discrepancy is material and im

explained without imputing .iny
intention to, deceive to either. That
first bullet which missed Neal went
through a window beyond him
which was open. Neal says he
drew his pistol then and attempted
to fire it but couldn't." This much
is certain that he did not fire a
shot. Blackweil then fired two

Muskogee Journal. Bass Reeves
on his last trip had an experience
that came near cutting short his
usefulness and did send one man
where he won't fool with other peo
ple s horses. He had warrants lo?
two men, Frank Buck and John
Bruner. While up the Canadian
looking for prisoners he came on
these men but did not know them.
He enquired forother parties whom
he was after and Buck and Bruner
volunteered to guide him. At noon
all parties camped, and while tliev
were getting dinner he noticed
Bruner stealthily pulling his pis
tol. Suspecting something he
stepped behind his horse and
around to the front of Bruner and
crabbed his pistol before he had
time to use it, and at the some
time pulled his own. Glancing
over his shoulder Buck was seen
getting out his weapon, when as
quick as a flash Beeves, still hold
ing Bruner's pistol in one hand,
threw over his btherand shotBuck
dead. Bruner was then secured
and is now on his way to Fort
Smith where he will have to an

On Monday morning about 8 o'
clock, as Conductor Devoe's train,
No. ISO, was coming north about
one mile south of Colbert, the head
brakeman named George A. Cal
houn, fell between the cars, the
wheels taking off his head, his left
arm at the shoulder and one foot.
When he fell he grabbed thebrake
beam and held on, being dragged
alonsr until all his clothes were
stnppcd from his body. He could
not retain his bold long and must
have been killed instantly when
he let go. The train ran on about
twelve miles before he was missed.
He was from Chicago, was about
twenty-eight years of age, a single
man. and was making his first trip
with Conductor Dcvoe.

Cattle are rounding- over and

During June and July, 1863,
Agent McGillicuddy of the Sioux
received from the Government for
the Indians four hundred and thir
ty eight cow3 and bulls. He did
not distribute them, but kept them
at the agency corralled at night un

Mobeetie, Texas Panhandle.
An outfit from the northwest part
of the state struck the broken mar
ket of a short time back with a
heavy shipment of cattle, and were
compelled to sell at $16.00 around.
As the shipment was composed in
Eood part of steers for which they
ad paid $20 to $22 at two years
old. the galling unpleasantness of
the transaction can be easily seen.
The Kiowa and Coman
che tribes of Indians have made the'
proper arrangements with the In

and will lease a few million acres
of their reservation in the territory
for grazing purposes.
Mr. J. S. Holland, manager of
the Illinois Cattle Company, in
New Mexico, has quite a marked
preference for Short-horns to cross
with the average range cattle. Se
speaks as though his head" might
be somewhat clear. "I prefer the
Short-horn, for various reasons.
Experiments have proven that the
Short-horn is the best for crossing
purposes, as well for hardiness as
the most weighty animal. The
Short-horn puts a body on his
crosses large boned, long, roupd
and capable of carrying more beef
than any other animal. A stock
grower who studies his business as
he should do, tries to grade his cat
tle in reference to size as' well as
quality. For my part I cannot sec
the .use of crossing those small
boned animals when it takes no
more grass to produce a 1,200
pound beef than it dees one weigh
ing from 700 to 900 pounds."
Speaking ef riches Mr. Vandcr
bilt said: "I believe I am the rich
est man in the world. In England
the Duke of Westminister is said
to be worth $200,000,000, but it is
mostly in lands and houses. It
does not yield him 2 per cent. A
year from now I shall be worth
more than $200,000,000, and will
have an income equal to G per cent
on that amount." He owns 930,
840 shares of railway stock, valued
at $S8,750,000, his railway bonds
amount to $26,8o4,420, he holds
$70,580,000 in government and a
trifle of $5,000,000 in other securi
