MENAGE 0E WOLVES.
tEBHASKA CATTLEMEN SEEKING
MEANS OF KILLING THEM.
Destruction of Cattle bjr the CI ray WoHea
Serious Matter and Ilecoinlns; Worse.
Even Men Attacked Convention to Con-alder
the fiulject Suggested.
Owners of great herds on tho ranges
of northwestern Nebraska havo como to
tho conclusion that something must ho
dono to prevent tbo killing of so much
stock by tho wolves.
Tho largest rnngo herds in tho stato
are to bo found to tbo north of Kearny,
Neb. An ostimato of tbo losses of cattlo
owned by members of tho Northwest
Nbbraska Stockmen's association has
'ccntly been complotcd by Sccrotary
Church. It shows that 15 por cent of
tho herds nro lost from year to year,
and 00 por cent of tho loss is attributed
to tho wolves. With tho oxception of
sevoro and sudden storms tho wolves aro
nbont tbo only source of serious loss to
tho producers of range stock in this and
adjacent states. Tho reports to tbo
agreo that tbo dnmago is increasing
at tbo rato of 5 per cent a year, and
various foremen say that wolves are
becoming as great a menace to rango
stock producing as jack rabbits aro to
agriculture in Australia.
Tho reports estimate that about 10,-000
wolves aro destroyed annually in
the territory. Most of them aro killed
by poison administered by tho employees
of various ranches. In view of tbo
fact that ranchmen have been trying
poison without any material benefit,
tho reports agreo that other measures
aro necessary at onco, as the wolves aro
increasing in numbers. During tho past
year all cowboys who rido tbe ranges
havo been required to carry rifles and
shoot all wolves to bo seen. Somo of
the foremen proposo that companies of
Ebarpsnooters snail bo employed by tbo
various stock associations of tho west
and that they shall rido tho ranges in
pairs and shoot wolves. Tbi would be
expensive, but it would enable individual
companies to do their work with
Another plan suggested is the employment
of great wolf dogs to hunt tho
range in company with trainers and run
down and kill the pests. This plan is
not regarded with much favor. Tho
stockmen of this section havo repeatedly
had offers of packs of Irish wolf hounds
guaranteed to catch and destroy any
wolf however strong and wary in a very
limited timo. But the men who know
tho wolves best aro not inclined to look
with favor upon this scheme. They assert
that any wolf hunting dog that was
over bred would bo killed in one season
on tho ranges around hero if bo came
into contact with n fow healthy specimens
of tho mountain wolf such as como
into this section every fall and remain
during tho winter. Thoy are as tough
as pino knots and as ferocious as tigers.
They will frequently fight men nlone,
and in packs aro dangerous to range
riders. Thoy aro as large as a
and havo fangs and tusks that
are as sharp as knives. Two can run
down and kill tho strongest steer on the
rnngo. Tncy usually sneak up as close
to tho bunchos of cattle as possible, and
thon rush down on tho herd, scattering
as thoy approach. Frequently a stoer is
killed for every wolf in a pack. Thoy
are not content with plenty of flesh to
eat, bnt seem to kill for tbo satisfaction
of tho warm blood thoy find to drink,
though when very hungry tho packs
clean tho bones.
Tbo mountain wolves aro ennning
and cannot bo induced to touch a carcass
handled by the cowboys. Tboy appear
to dotcct tho prcsenco of tho human
being, though days may havo elapsed
since tho bait was touched by human
bands. Ordinarily tho oowboys put in
tho best part of tho winter poisoning
tho pests. They tako tbo carcass of
an old cow, cut it in half and fill the
pieces with strychnine. Then tbo poisoned
meat is dragged to some isolated
point on tho rango. Tho moat is greedily
dovoured by tbe coyotes, and overy ono
that partakes of it dios. But this simple
method will not work with the mountain
wolves. These ferocious animals
approach a carcass carefully. If it has
not boon touched by human hands for
days, their keen scent warns thorn, and
they bavo to bo hungry indeod to touch
it So the cowboys havo to wear heavy
gloves in handling tho carcass. If the
cow man does not touch tbo carcass
with bis hands, but inserts tho
with gloved hands, ho may catch a
fow gray wolves, but theso strong beasts
find it nearly as easy to spring into a
bunch of steers and kill several fine animals
as to tear a doad carcass to pieces.
They love the warm blood so much that
it affords an additional reason why they
pass tho poisonod carcass when the live
herds are browsing in tho immediate
vicinity. When spring approaches, tho
packs of mountain wolves retire to tho
fastnesses of the mountains whero forage
is plentiful, only to return to the
ranges as soon as cold weathor sets in.
Near Kearnoy, Neb., the states of
Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado and
South Dakota come together. Within a
radius of CO miles from whero these
four states join moro than $100,000
worth of stock is destroyed annually by
wolves. This applies principally to cattle,
because tbero are few sboep herds,
and these aro on privato stretches of
range. Foreman Henderson Clark of
Tbreo Bar ranch, in tbo extromo north-
western part of Nebraska, says in his re
port on tbo damogos from tbo wolf evil
"As an ovidenco of tho strength and
daring of mountain wolvos I reoite tbe
following experience I bad with two
gray wolves of a great size late last
spring. I was searching for a small
bunch of my cattlo that bad wanderod
into an isolated seotion near tbo South
Dakota lino. I bad seen a nnmbor of
big, gonnt wolves in tho foothills, which
slunk away, snapping thoir ugly jaws
ns I rodo by. I bad a six shooter with
me, but did not antiolpato trouble
"Suddenly as I was riding through a
small draw whero the grass was unusually
rank and underbrnsh thick, my
borse gavo a snort and abound, and two
enormous gray wolves sprang from the
cover at me. Ono actually grasped my
horso by tbe leg, while the othor fastened
his fangs in tho tbiok leggings I
wore. Tho horso noigbed with fright
and pain and attempted to escape. I
beat ono of tbe wolves over tno nena
with my whip, forgottlug my pistol for
a moment, no rolcnsed tho grip on my
. leg nnd again sprang nt mo, this timo
gotting a better hold with his teeth iu
my norso's shoulder. Uy tills timo I regained
my presence of mind, drew my
six shooter nnd shot tho hruto banging
on to tho horso's shoulder. At tho report
of tho pistol tlio other wolf, which
had been very industriously gnawing
my horso's bind leg, ran away. Tho
dead wolf, I should say, weighed fully
1C0 pounds. Ho was six feet loug from
noso to tip of tail and looked ns dangerous
as n panther. My liorso was so badly
lacerated that ho could not carry me
home, and I wns later forced to shoot
him. This damago was accomplished in
less than threo minutes.
"This year tho big gray fellows are
so numerous and dangerous that all tho
rango riders in my territory carry their
Winchesters on nil trips of any distance
I boltevo if somotbing is not dono to
solvo this problem tbo rango of tho
great northwest, including Nebraska,
will havo to bo wholly abandoned by
stockmen, and tho cattle industry will
havo to bo confined to narrow limits
whero each bunch of steers con bo carefully
watched by riders."
Tho association will suggest a convention

An Editor's Troubles.
"Dear mel" cjaonlated the editor of
the Ruralville Bazoo, knitting his
thoughtful brow, fretfully, "what remarkable
questions somo of our correspondents
do ask, to bo snrel It is bad
enough to bo called npon to tell how
much of a snako is body and bow much
is tail, and what is tbe best brain food
for an aspiring young poot.and whether
if one's undo bad not been bis undo,
he would not have boon his aunt, and
if it foretells a cold winter when tbo
dog's bark is thickest on tbo north sido
of the house, and if subterfuge will
answer tho samo purpose as febrifuge,
and bow to preservo n'nenities so tuat
they will keep all winter, and how to
cure a calf that stutters so badly wbon
he bellows that bis own mother doesn't
recognizo him, and how to ntillzo a
job lot of surplus post-holes, and how
to make a boot-jack that will actually
jack a boot every time without fail, and
how to prevent that 'full feeling' after
drinking lavishly of hard cider, nnd
bow much A. and B. must nso off from
a given grindstone in ordor to bilk O
ont of his rightful share, and when
pockets are coming in fashion again,
and so foith and so on it is bad
enough to impoverish one's gray matter
to answer such questions; but now
comes old 'Constant Reader' and wants
to know what a farmer can raise and al
ways be sure to bavo a crop."

No Room for Loafers.
From the depth of our beait do we
pity tbo young man, or tbo young woman
who has arrived at tbo ago of manhood
or womanhood, who has no idea
of tho realities of life, and who is without
a trade, calling or profession. The
timo has como in tho history of tbe
world that every ono wbo enters upon tbe
threshold of maturity should be equipped
with the ncoestary qualifications
for making an independent living. It
is better for a young man to dig coal,
split wood, grub sprouts or beat rock,
even at 25 cents a day, than it is to do
nothing and be supported at tbe
of old fathers and mothers. We
will say what wo havo said in times
past tho Lord bas novcr yet created a
hnman being tbat was too good to take
hold and do any kind of honest work.
Any occupation is preferable to tbat of
loafing and sponging.

the mistake of taking remedies which
at best are only tonics and cannot possibly
reach their trouble. Mr. Asa Smith,
Greencastle, Indiana, says: "For years
have suffered with Sciatic Rheumatism,
which the best physicians were unable
to relieve. I took many patent
medicines but tbey did not seem to

worse until I was unable
to take my food

was cured completely and am as well as
ever. I now weigh 170."
