The Southern P.icille railroad conven
tion convened in the Greenlaw Opera
House, Memphis, on Friday. The peo
ple of the South demand n Southern route
to the Pacific seaboard, to be controlled
by resident .Southern men, and directly
in the interest of tin- South. What suc
cess the will have Is now locked up in
thc.futurc ; btiuholr eye are open to the
fact that a way to the shores of the Pa

the vast commerce or that ocean Into their

If you have never tried to ride a Texas
mustang, you nro probably not full v
prcparcd to appreciate Mark Twain's
excellent story of hit. experience with a
"genuine Mexican plug." I have ridden
liundreilsot them, and If there Is one in
the State free from tho vice of "bucking,"
have tailed to find him. I have used
ill sorts of means to break them of thi
fault, but without success. Strapping
them up until their hind feet almost
fall to touch tho ground does no good,
nnd I b.ivo ridden one coiiataiil v

"What i bred In thu bone must come out
of the flesh." They do not seem to have
taken warning by the camels Introduced
into the State by JclVerson Davis, when he
was secretary of war; they bunked so
successfully In Noah's time that they
have never liecn able to get their backs
down since, if bucking was their only
vice It would not bo so bad, as one gets
used to that after awhile, and
comes to consider it as an excellent prc-

have an uncomfortable habit of inaklngu
side leap of from six to twenty feet wheu-
iry iu iiioiuil ineni WHICH is a
trifle embarrassing ton novice. "With all
their faults I love them still," and for real
hard work, such a traveling long dis

to tubsht upon biitgra?'', they are unri

Used up one of your famous Ken

These conclusions are reached, altera
long study of mustang nature, strength
ened by observations taken during a re
cent trip of six weeks duration through
the border counties, tempted by reports
of "gold yallcr gold" having been
found In Mason aud Llano counties.
Vour correspondent joined foilunes with
a young Cluclnnatlau, and having pro
vlded ourselves with nu "outfit" every
thing is mi outfit here, from n pair of
saddle-bags to a caravan of twenty
wagons which consisted of nu eighteen
dollar mushing, .i blanket, a lailat,
and a pair of saddlebags for each,
containing somn bacon and er.ie.keni for
emergencies, we sallied forth like verita
ble Argonauts In .search ol thu golden
fleece. Wo are rich now rich lu experi
ence nnd health, for singular as it may
seem, tho fact remains that I gained
twelve pounds in weight, although I
was lu tho saddle uu average of eight
hours per day lor nearly u month. As
for gold, wo did not win any except
golden opinions from tho rnncheroi or
farmers with whom we stopped as chaiico
ofi'eicd. The farmers of Texas are an
original set, and their manner of
farming may bu ald to be Inlque; for In
stance, during our nip it was u common
occureneo to meet one of them at ten or
eleven o'clock In tlm morning uS wo plod
ded along, and ho Invariably asked us
whether wo hud seen a horse with bar
ucss murks on him, and n heait or the
mystic figures"; up" branded on his
shoulder. Now that fanner had used that
hor.so In plowing his corn during the
previous day, and at night turned him
out to skirmish for his supper, mid was
spending tho butter part of tho next day
lu hunting hhn, lu order to resume oper
ntlons. As for plowing, buoIi a
thing as a two-horso plow Is
never seen, and a subsoil plow would bo
as great a mystery to them us u reaper or
grahfdrill. Tin y usually hitch n pony
or mule witli rop. 3 to it single shovel

ground nnd plant their Corn one gralu to
tlm hill. Tho next season they" will prob
ably plant their crop lu the furrow of the
last season and cover It by turning Into
the furrow tho rldgo upon which the last
year's crop grow. The amount they raise
with such primitive utensils Is surprHng,
and would gl.uhl. n the heart of mi ordi
nary fanner, bit toward tho
close of the senou, when
the fruition of his hopes is nt hand,
your Texan seems to loe tho "git .,p

spring, nnd so only gathers about hall or
his crop ay enough for Corn-bread lor
himself mid family dining the winter.
For the rest ho can kilfa deer now and

one night with one of these 'gcnlii'.e.s
who had pitched his cabin on the

of tttvnty-llvo cents each for them. lint
his principal occupation Is bee hunting,
which he has followed ki lomr nnd per
sistently that his head its upon
his bhoulilets Inclined at an
angle of about thirty degrees
ward his right Mioutdcr, cau'-cd by look
ing so often at the tops of the tail gum
trees, and his eyes have nu eager, wistful
look. When the old mini le.irmd 1 was
from Cairo he Insisted iipoiiourKtopplug
with him a few day, which kind Invita
tion we gladly accepted, iw we, as well
is our hor.se, were somewhat jaded.
During the evening ho entertained us
with n story of how he. had traded off nu
old spavined lior.-o for a good mule
in the vicinity of Cairo, when he pn!
there on his way to Texas from Tennes
see, some twenty-Jive yeais ago. Dur
ing our stay ha repented this
yarn ten separate nnd distinct times, al
ways winding up with, "I reckon that j

had any more spavined horses which ho
hoped to put upon nnother gullelcs

that we could not eat 11. During the re-
iii.uiiuui in uur stay we occupied our
time in fishing, In order to obtain
something more palatable than the bacon

insisted upon chopping open a "bee gum"
for us, which Is a section of a hollow
gum tree about lour fee t long stood on
end with the top covered ; n hole Is then
bored into the "gum," a swarm of wild
bees introduced, aud when honey is
wanted, tiny split open the hive where
they find It for the taking, it is not to

the expression ; It has n .stiong taste, and
is very colicky. I was considerably
alarmed to hoe a boy about twelve
years old iat at least ten

sitting, hut he wa apparently all right
