Indicator, from Sin Antonis, en the pros pect ol tie cattle drive from Texts to Kan sas the coming reason. He says: Since mj arrival here I have had the pleasure of meet ing several of the most prominent cattle raisers and drovers from the south-western nortion of the Suie. a majority of whom teem to think the drive will exceed that of lait season, and give a a reason far it the hih prices that are being I aid for young steers, inducing rainy to fell, who In liter years held their yoang steers until mitnrea. Btock are in better flesh than I have seen them for years pant and should the weather remain mild and spring open up favorably, we can safely look for this year's drirs to be superior in flesh to those of the past four or fire yesrs. There are several of our northern cattle buyers here B. A. fcheidley, Ksn-ss City; Mr. Bronon, Cbtyenne; Mr. Pugley, Hugo, Colo; W, A. Towers, New Mexico, and Lee, of Lee A Reynolds, Pan Handle. I bate beard of few cattle being sold for northern deliyery, and those changed hands at $13,00lfl,00 and $13,0017,00, for ones and two-years old steers, the litter price being paid for choice lots. In six weeks oi le-a it will ba time to set out trees in ibis portion of the country, and ws desire to impress npon every farmer, and ef ery citizen ol the town, the imtwrtance of planting trees. Put out the best trees, bolii frnit and forest, if you can afford to purchase tbem; if not, set out those which are easily and cheaply obtained. At all erents set out trees, and care lor them. They wil! be growing while you are sleeping, and bu. a few yeirs will elapse when you will be able lo enjoy their grateful shide and perbaj th-ir heilth giving fruits. While on this subject we desire to insle a few suggestions in regard to planting shade trees in the city. No town in the west has a better lo ction fjr showinir the effects of tree culture thin Lamed. By a uuited and sjstemitic movement on the pirt of property holders, our city could in three or four years, be made one of the most beautiful towns in KD-a. In order to secure that unity uf ac I m, the city council should pass an ordi nate rtqu ring residence lot owners to set out Irs s in front of their property. Such an or.lintnce should be adopted at once, in order ilut alt miy hare due notice and ample op,Kriuniiy to comply with its provisions. The ord nsnee should provide that where a lot owner fails or refuses to set out tree , the work ehll h done by the (trees com niiioner and charged up against the prop erly In ihi way our streett can be lined ontthiids ith shade trees, and if we should be fatond with a reasonable amount of rili the coming eammer, the trees will mue-ucl growth ss to put them beyonu the iiiiui,u effects of any dry spell thereafter Limed Op ic A Texas cttile ranger, owning about three tl nue nd heid. asked a New Yoik Binker, to lend him some money on them, so that he in!ht increase his slock. He told the banker bow much they were worth, how thr; J i.ib e 1 in vilue every five years, and ma lea large ennuil profit. But when he t 1 1 h'cyi they did not hive any fences in Tsx.s, he exclaimed. "No fences!" Why good Lon', young man, I'd as soon tike a mortrfse on a fchool of codfish oS the backs of Nefi'Uidl. d. If a vomin tell yoo, ''I'll neyer speik to you ai-itn In my life there!" rejoice and r.l'U-; but it she mvs, "I shall always be cl id to see vou at any time," travel! When a wninin love yoo, she will pardon all evm vMirciim ; but when she no longer lnv s yno, he will not even forgire you v.-ur vlitJes. THE LAST HYMN. BV MAUIASNE rAENINUHAM. Tbs flabbain day was ending. In the yillage by the sea. The ottered benediction touched the people ten derly. And they rose to fse the tnaset In the glowing, lighted west. And then hastened to their dwellings for God's blessed boon of rest. Bat they looked across the wsteri, and a storm wis rarinjr there: A fierce iinrit moved abore them the wUdsplrit of the air And It lashed and shook and tore them, till ther thundered, irroaned and boomed, And alas lor any vessel In their yawning gulfs entombed I Very anxioas were the people on thit rocky coutof Wilts, Lest the dawns of coming morrows should be telling awful tales. When the sea bad spent Its passion and should ca&t udou the shore Itilsol wreck and swollen victims, as It had dose heretofore. With the rongb winds blowing round her, a brave woman strained her eyes, And she saw ilong the billews a Urge Tessel fall and rise. Ohl It did not need a prophet to tell what the end must be. For no ship could ride In nitty near that shore on such a sea. Then the pitying people hurried from their homes and thronged the Deacn, Ohl for power to cross the waters and theper- iahln? to reicbl Helpless hands were wrung for sorrow, tender hearts grew cold with areau, And the ship, urged by the tempest, to the ratal rock-shore sped. "She has parted in the middle I Oh. the halt of her cots downl God have luercjl Is heaven far to seek for those who drown!" Lo! when neat the white shocked flees looked with terror on the sea, Only one list clinging figure on the spar was seenlo be. Xrtrrr the trembling watchers came the wreck tossed by the wave. And the roan eilll clung and aoatsd. though no power on earth could save. "Could we send bim a short message? Here's a trumpet. Shout awajl" Twas the preacher's hand thit took It, and be wondered what to say. Any memory of his sermon? Firstly? Secondly? Ah, no! There was but one thing to utter in the awtnl hour ot woe; So he shouted throujh the trumpet: "Look to Jesuit (Jan you heir?" And "Ay, ay, sir," rasg the answer, over the waters, loud and clear. Then they listened. He is singing, "Jesus, lover of my soul!" Andthe winds brought bsck the echo, "While the nearer waters roll.' Strange, Indeed. It was to hear him, "Till the storm of life was past," Singing bravely from the waters, "Oh, receive my soul at las tl" He could have no other refuge. "Uangsmy helpl-ss soul on Thee; Leave, oh, leave me not." The singer dropped at last into the sea. And the watchers, looking homeward through their eves with tears made dim. Slid, "He passed to be with Jesus in the sing ingot that hymn." OTJB CI.tTBBING HATES.
