The Mexican cook has just began his fragrant task, so a half hoar mast elapse before these Arabs are fed. Their ponies are turned into the wire pasture, their big Colorado saddles repose astride the low . m , , , . . 1 paie ience wmcn Burrounus me nouse, and it is evident that their riding is orer for the day. Why are they gloomy? Not a boy of them can tell. One is from Princeton, too. They have been partners and com paneros and "worked" the HT cattle to gether for months, and nothing ever came in misunderstanding or cloud. The ranch house is their home, and theirs has been the unity of brothers. A week ago a pretty girl, the daughter of one of the owners, came to the ranch from the east. She was protected in this venture by an old and gnarled aunt, watchful as a ferret, sour as a lime. Not that the pretty girl needs watching; she is indeed in every move propriety's climax. No soft or dulcet reason woos her to the west; she comes on no love errand. She is elegantly and profoundly tired of the east, that is all, and longs for western air and western sights. She has been at the HT ranch a week, and the boys have met her, every one.' The meeting or meetings were marked by awkwardness as to the boys, utter in difference as to the pretty girl. She met them as she met the ponies, cows, knwriAl rAn A a and Alliaw onimala sf-maa tio and indigenous to eastern New Mex ico. While every cowboy was blush ingly conscious of her, she was purely and serenely guiltless of giving him a thought Before this pretty girl came the boys were friends, and the calm tenor of their relations with each other had never a ripple. She was not there a day before each drew himself insensibly from the others, and a vague hostility shone . dimly in their eyes. It was the instinct of the fighting male animal aroused by the presence of the pretty girl. She, however, proceeded on her daily way, sweetly unconscious of the sentiments she had awakened. Men are mere animals; women are, too, for that matter, but they are very different animals from men. The ef fort the race makes to be the other, bet ter or different than beasts fails. It al ways failed; it will always faiL Civili sation cultures-is the variest veneer and famously thin. A year on the plains cracks this veneer this shell and leaves the animal exposed. This is by the expanding growth of all that is ani malish in a man; these attributes of the physical being fed and pampered by a plains existence. The dark, vague, impalpable differ ences which cut off each of these creat ures from his fellows and inspired him with an unreasoning and nnmeasurable hate had grown with the brief week of their existence. A philosopher would look for trouble soon on the HT. "What did you go and take my saddle for yesterday, Bill?" said Jack Moore to a boy by the name of Bill Watkins. " 'Cause I allows 111 ride it some," says Watkins. "I thought it might like to carry a high grade cowpuncher once." "Well, don't take it no more," said Moore, moodily, ignoring the gay inso lence in the reply. "Leastwise, don't come a-takin of it an' sayin' nothin'. Ton can palaver Americano, can't you? Wlifui vnn Aims to ride mv saddle acin. ask for it; if you can't talk make signs, and if you can't make sign, shake a bush, but don't go Injunin' off no saddle of mine no more."' "Whatever do you; allow is liable to happen if I take it agin tomorry?" in quired Bill in high scorn. - ) i Bill was of a more vivacious temper than the gloomy Moore. "You takes it agin an' I mingles with you a whole lot, mighty prompt," re plied Moore in atone of obstinate injury. These boys were brothers in affection before that pretty girl came, and eitherl would have gone afoot all day to lend his saddle to the other. Going afoot, too, is the last thing, let me assure you, a cowboy will do. , , "Well, don't you fail to mingle none," said Bill, with cheerful ferocity," on ac count of its being me. I crossed the trail of the Bhorthorn like you, over on the Panhandle onct, an puts him in the fire an' has plenty of fun with him." - "Stop the play now, right yere," said Tom Rawlins, the HT range boss, who was sitting close at hand. "You all spring trouble 'round yere an' I'll be in it. Whatever's the matter with all you peo ple anyway? You're like a passel of sore 'head' dogs for more'n a week now. You're shorely too many for me to sabe, an' I clar gives you up." The boys started some grumbling re ply, but the cook called them to supper just then, and, one animalism becoming overshadowed by another, they forgot their rancor and vague animosities in thoughts of supplying their hunger. To ward the last of the repast Bawlins arose and going to another room began over- Innlrinir anma pntxips in thn ranch IwiVa The pretty girl did not eat at the ranch table. She had little banquets in her own room. Just then she was in her own room and began singing in a low. tenor some tender little love song that seemed born of a sigh and a tear. The hoys at supper heard her, and their re sentment of each other's existence began again to flame in their breasts and burn , The knowledge of the charms one possesses prompts one to utilize them. I cannot see why women are so desir ous of imitating men. ; deeply in their eyea. Nouu ot lacao lav ages was in the least degree in love with the pretty girl cither. They might have become so, all or any of them. The singing went on in a cooling, soft way that did not bring you the words only the music. "What I says about my saddle a while back, I means," said Moore, finally, turn ing dark looks on Watkins. "See yere," said Watkins, in an exas perated tone he was as vicious as Moore "if you're p'intin'out for a war jig with me, don't fool 'round none for reasons, but jest let 'er roll. Come a-rnnnin', an' don't bother none with ceremony." "A man don't need to have no reasons for crawlin' you none," said Moore. "You're fair game, you are. Anyone's licensed to chase you 'round jest for fun an' exercise." "You can gamble," said Watkins con fidently, "any man as chases me 'round much will regard it as a thrillin' pastime. He won't get fat at it none whatever." "As you all seem to feel that away, said Moore, "111 step out and shoot with you right now." "Well, 111 shore go you," said Wat kins. They arose and stepped out at the door. It was gathering dark, but it was light enough to shoot by. The other cowboys followed in silence. Not one said a word in comment or in terference. They were grave and seri ous, but passive. It is not good form to interfere with other people's duels in the southwest. The pretty girl was still singing, and the strains fell softly on the ears of the cowboys. Everyone, whether onlooker or principal, felt inspired with a lurking, pleased anticipation of the blood to be soon set flowing. Nothing was said of distance. They separated to about forty paces and turned to face each other. Each wore his "Colt's 45," the loosely buckled belt letting it rest low down on the right hip. Each threw down his big hat and stood at apparent ease, with his thumbs caught in the pis tol belt. "Shall you give the word, or me?" said Moore. "You give it," said Watkins. "ItH be a funny passage in American history if you get your artillery to the front any sooner than I do. then." "Be you ready?" asked Jack. "Shore." "Then go!" ' "Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!" went both pistols together, and with a rapid ity not to be counted. Moore got a crease in his left shoulder a mere wound to the flesh and Watkins fell with a bullet in his side. Bawlins, the range boss, came running out. He un derstood all at a look. Hastily examin ing Moore h discovered that his hurt was nothing serious. The others carried Watkins into the house. "Takemy pony, saddled at the fence, Jack," said Bawlins, "and pull your freight. This yere man's goin' to die." "Which I shorely hopes he does," said Jack, bitterly. "I'll go, though; I ain'J got no use for none of these yere he shorthorns around the HT." So he took Bawlins' pony, and when he stopped riding in the morning it was no marvel that the poor pony hung his head dejectedly, while his flanks steamed and quivered. He was almost 100 miles from his last corn, and' cooled his nerv ous muzzle as he took his morning drink in the Bio Pecos, a stream far to the west of the HT. ' "Some shooting scrape about their saddles, miss; that's all." So reported Bawlins to the pretty girl. "Isn't it horrible!" shuddered the pretty girl, in reply. The next morning the pretty girl and her gnarled and twisted aunt paid the in jured Watkins a visit. This sight so af fected the other three cowboys that they at once saddled and rode away to the northwest to work some cattle on the Ocate Mesa. They intended to be gone three months. They looked black and forbidding as they galloped away. "It's a pity Jack Moore ain't no better pistol shot," said one, as the picture of the pretty girl visiting the wounded Wat kins arose in his mind. "That's whatever," assented the others. The pretty girl was full of sympathy for the stricken Watkins. It occurred to her, too, that his profile was clear and handsome. He was certainly very pale, and this 6tirred the depths of her femi nine nature. She and her aunt came to see the invalid every day. Once the pretty girl said she would bring him a book to read and while away the hours which seemed shod with lead. "I can't read," said Watkins, in atone of deepest shame. "I never learned, I should like to read, too, but there's no one to teach me. So that settles that," and the rascal expressed a deep sigh. Watkins lied. It was he who was the Princeton man. He said afterward that this lie was the only real good work he ever did in his life. ' So the pretty girl came every day and gave Watkins a reading lesson, while the gnarled aunt read a book and watch ed them through the open door. "By the way," said Watkins one day, "where's Moore?" s "Why?" asked the range boss, to whom the question was put. "You tell him," said Watkins, his eyes beginning to gather rage, "that when I get out I'll be lookin' for him with something besides a field glass." "Oh, no!" said the pretty girl, rising and coming toward his couch. Her tone showed disturbance and fear at the thought. As he gazed at her the look changed in his eyes. Hate for Moore gave place to something else. "No," he said at last. "Tell him it's all right, Bawlins." The pretty girl thought him very noble. ... , Watkins was out in five weeks and could go about the ranch. Quo night Bawlins thought he hrsard a pony in the yard and arose to remedy the matter. As he stepped out a oouplo passed him in the moonlight. It was Vetiib ami. the pretty girl. The caitill's arai was round her. Dan Quia in Kansas City Times. ' , i .

The) New Baate wrir ad That la t-'eep las; la Vagaw Evary wharm A convivial Hubbite stepped into Young's hotel in Boston one morning and ooofided to the tonsorial artist that his bead waa swollen from the effect of the previous night's debauch and asked him if he could Lot, metaphorically speaking, soak his head for him with a wet towel, r The barber immersed the towel in almost boiling hot water and placed it across his customer's brow. "How does it feel?" be asked, at the steam began to rise. "First-olau; give as some more," re plied the man under the towel,, and the barber continued the soaking process for fully half an hour, till at last, when he took the towel off, the face of his customer presented the appearance of a boiled lobster, and the owner of the swelled head declared that be had never felt better in his life that all the dizziness and the swelling had departed and left his cranium clear as a bell, After that, whenever he bad been on a racket, he came in on the following morning to have his head bathed, says the New York World. He told his friends about it, and they came also, and others, seeing its soothing effeots, became regular applicants for the lay ing on of the hot-water towel. Then men who bad not been and who never would go on tears, hearing how delicious the sensation of the hot water towel was, tried it, liked it, and there after asked for it Thus the fad became established in Boston and spread from shop to shop, and now it u a regular custom in all tit big hotel to apply a hot water towel after the shave, and now it is be ing established in New York. Two prominent tonsorial parlors on Broadway have already adopted it and other shops are gradually following suit. , The time is at hand when the hot towel custom will be universal, for the simple reason that it is a delightful and most refreshing process. Not many New York barbers yet understand how to administer the hot towel a la Boston. To be done properly not one towel alone, nor two, should be applied, but at least half a dozen, completely cover ing the face with the steaming cloth, and replacing each towel as it be comes cool with other fresh from the hot water faucet. A dreamy languor creeps over the senses. On the hottest day in summer, as well as the coldest in winter, one goes forth feeling much better for his steaming. The philoso phy of the Boston shave is this : The hot towel draws the blood away from the brain to the face, making in summer the skin much warmer than the air, which, when the towel is withdrawn, strikes the skin cool and refreshing. ' In winter the blood heated by the towel offers the same resistance to the cold as if it were heated by exercise and the unpleasant chapping of the skin which sometimes follows the old fashioned shave is obviated. The steam also removes the oil which exudes from the skin and leaves the complex ion clear and fresh; therefore a man feels better, thinks better, talks better, and works better after the Boston shave. Fashions In Beefsteaks. It appears that there are fashions even in beefsteaks, and that the present ones are a disadvantage to the pockets and health of people of moderate means. Good Housekeeping quotes a Chicago butcher as follows: "In thin, slight cattle the butchers take out the tenderloin in one' piece. The bone is extracted from what should be the surloin, and there remains what are known as "boneless butts." The meat is stripped and makes so-called sirloins. Naturally this meat is any-, thing but prime meat, and brings an apparent low price. The cheap restau rants are the purchasers of this meat, and through these restaurants the idea has spread that only these cuts are good. Now a prime cut of porterhouse from the finest cattle I have to ask from 25 to 28 cents for. The retail small batcher sells the same cut, but from this wretched kind of cattle, for from 16 to 18 cents. "Every bit of meat in the prime car cass from which 1 cut my porterhouse and sirloin cats is better than the Very best cuts from inferior grades of cattle. People either don't know or won't be lieve this, but it is so. I can sell shoul der or 'chuck' steaks, for example, from primest, choicest beef at ., 8 centu a pound. It is as good and svset and juicy as the sirloin, but, no, people won't have it, and I have often to abso lutely throw it away. It stands to rea son that a shoulder piece of beef or mut ton, from prime beef or mutton, is of course far better than vthese so-called tenderloins from poor, lean cattle. The top steak off a round is equally cheap." Another butcher says that in England they never cut steaks from the loin, the steaks known here as sirloin and ten derloin. The loin is a roasting piece and the steaks are. out further back what are known as rump steaks. These and "chuck'' steaks are the true steaks. A good chuck steak from a prime car cass is twice as healthy, twice as good eating, and twice as cheap as the pre tentious tenderloin of poor, lean beeves. Eupepsy.

While a number of boys were play inga bout some empty naptha barrels in Dayton, last Sunday, one of them threw a lighted match' into the bung bole of a barrel.' Instantly an explo sion followed, and barrels and boys catteted with equal swiftness. Four of the boys were knocked senseless and two severely bruised about the face and breast. It is supposed that a small quantity of naptha was contained in the barrel. - ; Snbsoribe for the Nobth-wbjt, $1.60 a year A CHEROKPt ROMANCE. The lefateatloa mt a reantrlTaala Olri far Indian ChleC ' On the prominent eminence in the prairie overlooking the town of Tahlequa has been a solitary grave for sixteen years. It contained the remains of Mary Downing, the wife of a full-blooded Cherokee chief, Lewis Downing. Her maiden name was Mary Ayer. She was born in Bethle ham. Pa. was educated and accom plished, and a woman of wealth. She had romantic Ideas, and her infatua tion for Indiana was extreme. In 1866 Chief Lewis Downing was sent to Washington, D. C, on busi ness for the Cherokee. Though a full-blood, be spoke English quite welL While in Washington he had occasion to visit' Betbleham, and accidently met Miss Ayer. who fell desperately in love him. The chief lingered longer in Bethlehem than he intended, not being able to tear himself away from the charms of so fair a lady, and ere his departure had won her consent to be his bride and share a place in his wigwam. It was agreed between the two that she should fol low him to the territory and be mar. ried at the capital She required sir months to dispose of her property anu convert her valuables into cash. Chief Downing returned to his nation, and with him it proved "out of sight out of mind." The ardor oi his love soon cooled, and he wrote withdrawing his engagement She, after reading his letter, re marked that "it took two to make a contract and two to break one," and so wrote him. Before this letter had reached the chief he bad married a dusky maiden of his own tribe. Miss Ayer, having got everything in readi ness, started tor the territory. Ac cording to the contract she arrived at Tahlequa, and, on hearing of his marriage, made up ber mind to make her borne among his people, devoting her life to their advancement Years elapsed, and the chiefs wife died. Miss Ayer still being single, he re newed his vows, and was again ac cepted. They were married, and went to the home she had built The life she had long dreamed of was realized, but not long was she permitted to fill his house with light and love ere death claimed her.
