B Quigley, president of the Kausas City, Ozarks & Southern railroads, was I about 25 years ago in northern Texas, when I, with a party of surveyors, was W; locating some state lands. We had camped on a sort of butte, that partly re nrtrounded a water hole. As we \I looked down the declivity we saw a S( t /t o1 1 r eween Bear and Buffalo. Sitt a ton t a ,I liter Between Bear and Buffalo. miammoth buffalo bull standing down o there near the water. "One of the boys in our party, pamed Dick Henry, picked up a rifle and said: P "'I am going down there and get ii that fellow.' "'Go ahead,' someone said, 'if you 0 dare.' c "Dick crawled over the edge of the i steep, and holding his rifle in one hand I let himself down, hanging to roots and 1 shrubs until he reached the bottom, about two hundred feet below. "The old buffalo bull just gazed at 'him casually, and continued to stamp and switch flies. The old fellow's head 1was coated with dry mud. In fact, € i his whole body was armored in that -, way, and he had evidently been down d, there for days coating himself with d, clay to keep of the gadflies. jn "Dick having reached the bottom, al- dropped on one knee, leveled his gun, of took a steady aim, while we all held of our breath, and fired. The buffalo st, was hit on the forehead, where masses e- of hair caked with clay protected him. n; The bullet fell off harmlessly and est the old buffalo shook his head angrily oe and charged. "Dick turned and ran under an over. hanging shelf of rock about four feet a high that the buffalo couldn't get un- fi der. But no sooner had he darted un der this ledge of rock than out he flew again, dropped his gun, and clamber ing up the cliff like a squirrel, fell exhausted at our feet. "'Why didn't you stay under that rock?' we asked. "'Holy smoke!' he gasped. 'Stay under there nothing. There is a brown bear under that ledge twice as big as the buffalo!' "One of the boys shot the buffalo, and then we went down and by'burn ing sulphur we smoked the big bear out and shot him, too. "When we got to Fort Sill we told the story, and a newspaper corre spondent sent it to a magazine, and the whole thing, greatly exaggerated r- and illustrated, was published far and j wide to regale the minds of youths Sthirsting for Wild West adventure." iSO CLEAR AN ISLAND THICKET to poison Weeds and Brush Disappear bo Before the Appetite of Hungry Goats.

If parents realized the fact that cof fee contains a drug-caffene--which is especially harmful to children, they would doubtless hesitate before giving: the babies coffee to drink. "When I was a child in my moth er's arms and first began to nibble things at the table, mother used to, give me sips of coffee. As my parents used coffee exclusively at meals I never knew there was anything to drink but coffee and water. "And so I contracted the coffee habit early. I remember when quite young the continual use of cofee so affected my parents that they tried ' roasting wheat and barley, then ground it in the coffee-mill, as a sub stitute for coffee. Ic "But it did not taste right and they y went back to coffee again. That was long before Postum was ever heard of. I continued to use coffee until I 'a. was 27, and when I got into omce work, I began to have nervous spells. n Especially after breakfast I was so yid nervous I could scarcely attend to my ch correspondence. "At night, after having coffee for per supper, I could hardly sleep, and on ' rising in the morning would feel weak n and nervous. "A friend persuaded me to try Postum. My wife and I did not like it at first, but later when boiled good leand strong it was fine. Now we would not give up Postum for the best coffee e I- we ever tasted. ad- "I can now get good sleep, am free "k°' from nervousness and headaches. I I at recommend Postum to all coffee drink ers."
