DOTTLEID GOODS OF ; VERY DESORIPTIO1. j OPPENHEIMER & ASCH, MOURHING RANGE CATTE A CAttle~ Funeral Is a S tpeoaeld Worth Seeing, it Up a Tree. But Full of Danger to an Intruder not Mounted for Speed.' Scenting the Blood of a Slain Herdmate prom Afar-Violent Demonstra tions of Grief. A cattle funeral may seem an odd thing to write about, but it is'ten times more sad to witness, If the observer happen to. be. on foot in the vicinity of the scene of the ceremonies, however, he is apt to find it anything but odd, unless there be a tree or some other place of refuse convenient, or the curious onlooker be ununually feet of foot. But doubtless the average reader does not know what a cattle ,funeral is like, and perhaps is not inclined to give credit to the possible existence o: such a thing, says the San Francisco Chronicle, If he has never lived in a locality whet. cattle of a more or less untamed disposition are wont to range, he will eertainly never have had an opnor tunity to learn' by i.o rvation aay of the peculiar and notable facts connected with this remarkable phenomenon of the range. A cattle funeral, then, je it known, is nothing mo:e or less than exactly what the words seem to indicate-a ceremony of " mourning over the untimely.f td ol ade parted herdmate, in which ever individual member of the band that is within long range ear or nose shot is bound to partici " pate. In detail this ceremony consits of a sort of walking around, accompanii4 with the most doleful, ear-piercing and heart rending moans, shrieks and bellowings, and varied by ponderous pawingst in the ground and the most sisgularly dexterous flingingas of the resultant dust upon the backs of the four-footed mourners. To observe or participate in a cattle funeral let-the curious-minded go out upon the range, select some spot which is open and afforJo no obstruction to the view, and from which no "critter" is in sight. Just here for the benefit of the uninformed or supersensitive ear, let it be explained that the word "critter" is by common consent used on the ranges as the shortest possible means of defining the character of an ani mal which walks on four legs by contradis tinction from a horse or a calf. Having selected such a spot, let one of the aforementioned "oritters" be brought quistly and secretly from a distance, and without undue ostentation, as becomes poachers upon another man's range, let him be done to death. Let the offal be secreted where even the coyotes cannot find it, and let the hide and flesh be carried carefully away. Then let earth be thrown on the blood stains to hide all traces of a disturb ance, and lot all this be done so well that even the human eye can detect nothing that would seveal what had been done. Then let twenty-four hours, or even less, peas, unless, indeed, there be cattle within a mile or less at the time of the slaughter. But for the purpose of illustration,.anp pose that twenty four hours have elapsed. Then suppose a bunch of 100 or 200 head of cattle conme drifting down over the range to leeward of the spot where the slaughter of the day previous occurred. The leader of the bunch may be two or three miles, perhaps farther, from the scene of blood. suddenly he commences to show signs'of uneasiness. Though the grass be deep and luxuriant, he only feeds a few moments continuously, lifting his head and tossing his horns as if an enemy was near. Sud denly there is a strong noff of wind and as the nostrils of the leader inhale the air a transformation occurs like a flash of light ning. He halts, throws his muzzle into the air, and then emits a most unearthly, pro longed, weird, moaning shriek or bellow. It is like none of the variousnoises made upon other occasions, but has a tone that is all its own and which is evidently well under teand byh the entire herd. "With another shriek, which can be heard for a mile, and even farther, the leader breaks into a run, with his tail in .the air and with his head shaking angrily from side to side, followed by all the members of the herd, each adding to the volume of soand that now fills the air. As other animals feeding quietly at a distanee hear the peculiar sounds they, too, prick up their ears, then with answering shrieks they gallop wildly toward the excited band and join it in pursuit of the leader. That animal quickly arrives at the' tell tale spot. He snuffs at the ground, mean while lashing his sides with his tail, and bellowing continually in a manner that suggests the height of rage. His eyes flesh wildly, the froth drops from his jaws and flecks his neck and body. He paws the ground angrily with his hoofs, and by dex terous twisting manages to cast great masses of the earth into the air and upon his back. 'The others come racing up and crowd closely about the spot where their mate was slain. An inner circle is formed by bhe exeited animals, with their heads all point iuu.oa common center, and these bellow , w the ground, and race around and around until exhausted. Meanwhile, the others are ciroling rapidly about the cen tral cluster, and finally displace the earlier arrivals, whereupon they, too, go through the same performance. The scene Is a terrific one. Horns are clashed against horns, the bellowing of the angry animals is deafening, the air is filled with dust, the beasts seem aotuated eaoh by some particularly malevolent spirit, and their actions appear prompted almost by human understanding. Woe to the unfortunate curiosity seeker who chanoes to be abroad on foot uUpon such an occasion. It he have any "cattle sanse" at all he will put as wide a space as possible between himself and the moarners, or, if he be desirous of studying the spsecta ole, he will climb the nearest tree or seek some other point of vantage lnaceestible to the maddened beasts. If, on the other hbad, he should be so laokina in common sense as to be unable to recognize the apparent signs of danger and should approach too oloely to the angry herd, his awakening to the peril will be sharp and sudden, Some angry. beast will catch a glimpse of hinm, and, recogdlz lg ini zlm thetee oweibiisty for the uesd ding of bld, will lower his head and, with a sort of ,.fanae, make a wild arge .for the objdt' of bovine wrath.!" If at.. ob ject escape with his life hebwill, indeed, be fortunate.',. Even a horseman has been known to have.had anything but a pleasant half tour from an encounter with a funeral party bf this character. The news of the death of a comrade seems t. spread with the rapidity of the telegraph, and fresh relays of mourners constantly ar rive, keeping up the strange spectacle for hours at a time, not ceasing until the shades of night descend. Oceasionally the scene of bloodshed will be discovered by some wandering "critter" who has that portion of the range to him self temporarily. There may be no other cattle within two or three miles, yet the long mourner will commence the procedure already described, end within a quarter or half an hour he will have been joined by others, while inside of an hoar there will be a dense mass of excited cattle on the spot, and from the range in every direction others will be seen hurrying to the scene.
