mont. for in these days of absconding and em

thing for a hink ofnhinal to lay down his life
rather than betray atrust. The story has been
told already in thedispaclhea from I)exter. Mo.,
but it cannot he repeatedl too often. The brave
man was discovereud Inst raturday morning ly

cuffed and g:ggel, with a rope around his
neck. He had bonn attackeud by three robbers
on the previous afternoon while replen
ishing the firn. The assailants vihlently
expectetd to find the safe unlooked, but
the doors were closed and the funds of the
bank were protected by a combinaton and a
time -lock. They put a rope around the cashier's
neck. struck him on the head and threatened
to kill him if he would not toll them the combi
nation and enable thomn to open the safe. iHe
preferred to die rather than help thonm plunder
the bank. So they lokeod him up in the vault to
die of suffocatolli and his wounlds, and ran
away with the change in the till and the moneoy
in his pocket-book. Courage, Ihroism and

Close of Winter Pork Packing.
For many years the winter pork packing sea
son In the West closed on the first of March; but
Iast spring the Board of Trade of Chicago (the
controlling meat market on this continent )
changed this custom or law, and formally de
clared that all pork packed after that period of
the year which was sound and of full weight
should be considered standard. The Cincinnati
Price Current, however, continues to make up
its reports of the winter packing to the first of
March. From that most reliable journal we
take the following:
'With to-day ends th~ winter pork packing
season. It is safe to say that no one lIdentifloa
with the trade fully foresaw what may be termed
the extnt of the vinter crop of hogs in the
West; no one, previous to the first of January.
believed that Chicago packing would approach
2,500,000 head of hogs during the season, or that
the aggregate at the six larger cities would ap
proximate 4,700,000. It was shown that tho ao
parent basis of supply was ,1 to 20 per qt
greater in 1877 than in 1876-but the summi
racking In 1877 had exceeded that of 1876 by 250,
c0o head or more, and it was regarded likely that
this would appear to have been a pait of
the apparent Increase in supply, Again. the
warm weather which prevailad during DeDonm
bar had an effect in shaping the outrome oL the
season's supplies which diffored quite t ato
rially from tile opinions which were then being
formed as to the probabilities in this respect..
This wrmln weather in December. which made
the packing record show at deficit of upward of
600 oon heal on the first of January. as compared
with the previous winter, was doing more t)
overcome that deflolcncy and accomplish a re
markable increrse than wasgenerally calculated
upon; and the conditions following having bteen
of a most favlratble nature for the promotion of
a long crop, the outcome of the season has beien
quite diffrent from what would have seemed
likely by the evidences in )Decemtinr. * * *
Our table below shows the total parking for
theI winter at. the six largte itine to have reached
naproximatoly 4.485.000. This exhibit may be
modified or onlarged by final returns, but no
essential change is to be oxtportd. This shows
an increase of about 1.200,000 hogs packed at
these places. We have no IUseneri information
as yet from interior points, which it may be
safe to say have likely packed abouto 1,800,000
head. We shall otTer complete information as
soon as it is possible to ac(lolro the same from
the 5(xa Darking points in the W-st. The quality
of hogs during the winter has been excellent as
a rule, and weights will likely show from (;to to
pounds inorease, while the total number packed
will exceed any previous winter more than 500,
00oo0 hogs.
Th'ri number of hogs packed sinceo November

TMhlt Year's Cattle Drive to Kansas.
Those whothink that Western Texas has been
deprived of all her cattle by those who have
been driving to Kansas and the Territories
since the war are badly mistaken. True, cer
tain sections have been ridden of great num
bers of the long horns which used to roam over
them, yet in other parts the rapidly increasing
bovine seems as numerous as over. The drive
to Kansas this year will be an exteneive one.
and stock men with whom our reporter has
conversed are of the opinion that sales will be
effected with promptness and at paying rates.
The whole number of cattle to hbe driven, as re
Dorted by Mr. Richard Head. foreman of Elli
son & DeowesMn. is 223.400 head. The hulk of
th' s eant'le is destined for Fort Dodge. Kansas,
and Ogailala, Nebraska.-[San Antonio Express
