It was a proud day for Lome, the ei
young foreman of the Circle Bar ranch. J'
when he started on his IIrat "drive" ^
with a herd of 5,000 cattle for the northern
shipping point. o^
It was his orders to take the herd to jj
St. Louis nnd pass through the Ozark oJ
mountains or foot hills. The herd was aj
tractable during th? earlier days of the a:
course, but as the cattle wont on they
became more nervous, and it was with w
difficulty that the herders could keep in
them within the lines of the nightly at
Once, when they had been compelled
to rfde constantly around the herd from br
evening far Into the night, Lome went Ea
to the head of the herd to see what was j
the disturbing cause. J\
As he Bat on his.horse he heard the |
wilt e\t - M./ilf .in Ihn Hc-ht. ??nciUOferi ! .
by another from the left. Something j ..
about the sound was unnatural, and he I ..
listened clwelj. Again they came, and I
Boon there was a aecon?l movement
unions the cattle?something had been Jn
thrown Into the herd to eturtle them. , '
He knew, then what was the matter? jJ
eome one was annoying the herd to I
snake him trouble. But when daylight ^
came he could see nothing of the din- j.
turbers, and again he waited for nfght.
lie took his own po-sltlon far on the t
outskirts that night and waited for de- ^
velopments. Soon there was another
wolf call; then another, then a whizzing ^
eound and another movement of the : _0
cattle. He rode furiously jal the point {*r
ivhere he thought the sound originated, ' ^
and was not surprised to catch a j
pllmpse of a dark form which he took to Qn
We a man on horseback.
"Halt," he cried, "or I tyill shoot you!' sa
There was no stopping. Faster and ^
faster he rode and gained on his annoy- .
er. Then before he was aware of what on
was happening he was seized from behind
and went rolling to the ground, a i
lariat colled around him having Jerked SQ
him from the saddle. It had not caught
over his head and his second assailant <
went rushing rushing past and away ca'
before he could r.egain his feet. jn
But not quick enough for the rider to
escape notice, and one glance at the
stooping 6houlders and. the long hair
told Lorne who It was?Louie, the Mexican,
who had been discharged whe;i
Lorne went to work first on the Circle'
Bar. I?
But there was enough to look after at 1
the other end of the line. The cattle,
etartled more than ever by the noise, (
iha? started on a stampede and were J
racing toward the east at the top of mc
their speed, the herders doing all In th.
their power to stop them, but without ,
effect. lot.
It was two days before the herd was do
in shape to start on its Journey again, mi
Then the course was turned to the north mr

On the -whole the trip "was 50lag well
and they were up In the middle erf the
territory with faopes of seeing the south
branch of the Cimarron most any da?y. s?]
a halt had been called early for nlghtr' im
and on the level plain the cattle were UK
scattered for two miles up and down
the trail. The herders were getting Ee1
supper and only three were on guard. In
By some means one of these was off his get
horse and the others were together at .
the southern end of the long line.
None of them saw a crawling figure cu

the herd's grazing ground and slowly, _t

raise their heads suspiciously, separate IlK
the northern third of the herd from ^
those on the south, steadily they drew of
away and, as there were several hum- th
mocks In that region, were soon behind
one and out of sight of the regular herd- aa'
ers. It was a shrewd trick, and one *
that was played on more than one oc
casion in the history of the cattle trade. hI)
Lome was new to it and did not even Dl'
see what was done until one of the yo
herders rode up to say that there was Cr?
something out of the way.
"The herd's short somehow," h9 exclaimed.
do you rfiean?" *
"They're missing?stolen or strayed, e(j
and we are out." ,
"Get the men together and we will
make a search." ha
In a moment the herders were In tho Un
saddles and the remainder of the cattie
were urged forward, for they knew
that the lost stock had not been taken
during the" day and consequently were 4

On the long- trail nothing causes eo r*e

as the meeting of two herds. The cat- *

some lively fights result. More than ;
that, there la almost sure to be a stam- 'er

So it happened that as the main herd so:
went around the edge of the hlllocR, be- ?
lng pushed as fast as the excited men
, could hurry it, there came suddenly to
meet It another herd, that was not for
th? moment recognized by Lome and fo:
hi? followers. j
Behind the thousand were two'yell- (

Of tlio Coghlan Affair ? Difference
Between Private Speeches and Public
Policies ?An Incident ot" no
Special Moment.
New York Journal of Commerce: Four
or Ave years ago Captain Concas, of the
Spanish navy, who met his fate off Santiago,
July 3, and who came to this
country six years ago with the Columbus
caravals and visited the "World's
Fair, made an address in Madrid which
was grossly offensive to the United
Stated, anil Minister Taylor complained
to t|\e Spanish government against It.
But there was no analogy between that
event and the conduct, undeniably' Indiscreet
under all the circumstances, of
Captain Coghlan at the Union League.
If Captain Cohc$\6 had limited himself
to denouncing United States otllclals
with whom lie came in contact Mr. Taylor
would have taken no notice of his
remarks. But he grossly Insulted our
government, he denounced us'a3 a people,
he told absurd and offensive lies
about the military academy and other
public Institutions, and the protest of
the American minister was necessary.
So far as his original remarks go, Capt.
Coghlan's indiscretion, such as It was,
related to Admiral Dewey rather than
to the German commander. He did not
tell what the latter did, or repeat the
language of the latter; he repeated
spmthing that he heard Admiral Dewey
say, ar.d If he compromised anyone he
compromised his own commander. If
the navy department is taking iiote of
his speech It is because he has revealed
the attitude of h's own government and
not because he has given offense to a
foreign power.
His repetition of o eatlre at the Kaiser
Is a different thing. It was nn indiscretion,
but some of our newspapers are
attaching an undue Importance to It.
The occasion was entirely unofficial, and
governments are not compromised by
after-dinner speeches at a private clun,
even when made bv persons in the
public service. Consider for a moment
thnf fVirt in HI ao
thnt the Gorman war vessel Falke returns
to Bremen, that the captain and
his officers are invited to dinner at a
club-house, and that the captain complains
of the aggressiveness of Admiral
Kautz and repeats a defiant message
that he or the German consul sent to
the American commander. Does anyone
suppose that such an incident would put
any strain upon the relations between
Germany an-l the United States? "Why,
German newspapers ar.d members of
the reichstag are using offensive language
about us now, and the members
of the reiehstag are not even called to
order by the presiding officer for insulting
a friendly people, but the most
diseased imagination does r.ot suppose
that the friendly relations, between the
two governments, or between the two
peoples, are endangered thereby.
Suppose, farther, thnt after the captain
of the Falke had repeated th:> defiant
message he or the German consul
msy- lH? supposed to have sent,.and had
been vociferously cheered, he had been
induced to reeiti some lines current in
anti-Americyn circles in the Pacific :i 1 Icuilng
the President of the United
States. American newspapers generally
would have made angry comments
upon Iiis bad last*', and possibly Ambassador
White would have sent a note
to the minister of foreign affair*--, in consequence
of which the captain of the
Falke would have been admonished to
be more considerate of American sensibilities;
but no one imagines thnt the
relations of the two governments would
affected at all by the captain's freedom
in an after-dinner speech on a private
Some of our fellow citizens are unduly
apprehensive that the fate of the United
S:.?tes may be bound up by treaty with

Interests of the American people In the

and a general co-operation for commercial

as it is for Americans who

idea that any Americans desire to sacrifice
the iv.tienal interests in order to
gratify animosities that they hrouoht

should neglect It* own interests on account
