Adirew: IIarfek k Brothers, Nw York ARTISTS OF THE ROUNDUP. Old Time Texas Cowboys Vastly Different From Thone of the Present lay. The old time cowboy is no more. He passed in his checks with the free grass custom. The big pasture has intro duced a new order of cowboy, who sleeps in a house and "obeys orders" or quits. The old cowboy was the companion of his boss and shared his pleasures and his hardships. No manager in this big headquarter rockhouse reminded him of his inferior rank in society, nor did any of the mod ern ranch accessories mar the common dangers, the pleasures and the freedom and equality of the whilom cowboy and cowman. But the ranch in the olden time was a cottonwood loghouse to cook in, and for roof and protection from the weather the slicker was used, and mother earth supplied their beds. The broad range and the overhanging Bky answered for house and home. A roundup in 1887-80 was not bounded by wire fences, but the boys galloped out of camp after breakfast, made a wide eweep, and all then drove toward a common center, and lo! directly at that point was gathered a herd of stock cat tle of all brands, ready tor the cut to begin. The high toned man was tabooed. I remember such a man appeared at the ranch of J. T., in Shackleford county, in 18S9. He was a city fellow, and would say "Thank you" and such like. His intense politeness and high toned nonsense aggravated the boys mightily. Jim B. in particular poor fellow was especially fretted by his nonsense as he called it, and tried to ridicule it out of him, but in vain. At last his resentment ripened into genuine hatred and it was hard to keep the peace be tween them, for the city fellow had giit too. Well, one morning in 18C9, at Moun tain pass, in Taylor county, long before any one lived in that section, Jim got awfully mad and gave the city fellow a cussing, whereupon a row resulted and blodshed was barely prevented there and then. We got the city fellow to ride off, and it looked like T)eaco had return ed, but one hour later Jim B. and his amiable enemy met off at one side of the roundup. I happened to be near. In a flash the city chap ran before Jim, dismounted, leveled his gun on him and demanded an apology or death. Jim jerked out two six shooters, but said nothing, and instantly the city fellow fired. Poor Jim rolled off his horse a dead man. I got to them just as Jim fell. He died instantly, shot through the heart. His slayer mounted his horse and "lit out." We buried Jim and went on with our herd, two men short, but with no discordant ele ment among us. Such was the old wav. The bovs were courteous and kind, they were gener ous and brave, industrious and honest, but they would not stand any high toned nonsense. A new era has set in. Which is the better we cannot say, but one thing is sure with all his faults, and they were many, the old time cowboy was a man to be trusted in peace or war and was the very soul of honor. Dallas News. An Armenian Legend. Ararat, one of the most majestic mountains in the world, rises 17,000 feet above the vast flat plain which bears its namo and reigns over the sur rounding mountains. Early in the morn ing, while all the valleys of Ararat and the neighboring mountains are buried in shadow, the white top of the Scrip tural mountain gleams beautiful in the first beams of the sun. The Armenian people tell this story about the inhabitants of Pharbee: Once the devil and a Pharbee man laid a wager as to which should first see the sun. The one who saw it first was to box tho other's ears. "Very well," said the Armenian, and he lay down and slept sweetly, while tho dev il, itching to punish his enemy, stood looking eastward, and with eager eyes watched the whole night for the sunrise. Early in the morning, tho Pharbee man rose, and pointing to the top of Ararat, which was already shining in the sun, cried joyfully, "I see it!" Tho devil was vanquished. The Pharbee man, with his strong hand, boxed the devil's ears. Ever since that lime, the devil has been afraid of the people of the Ar menian village of Pharbee. Woman's Journal. Congress Water. How many people know that out by the Greenough statue of Washington, east of the capitol, is a vast and cav ernous reservoir? Not one in a thou sand, but there it is, down in the bow els of the earth, and covered deep be neath the smooth surface of asphaltuin. Away back in the thirties congress pur chased a spring over east of the present site of Howard university. It is now at the bottom of the unused distribut ing reservoir. From it pipes were laid to the capitol, and in a pond east of the building tho water flowed and was held for the use of the early Solons of the hill. In 1876 tho reservoir was arched over and covered in, but there it is, and if congress has been neglectful of the city's interests a to a water supply, the reason is not hard to find. Congress has its own private tap. Pipes run into the capitol, furnishing the boilers, cool ers and water for cleaning purposes. There is an overflow pipe that runs into the pretty little grotto below the senate wing at one side of the main sidewalk and tinkles over the mossy bank in a miniature cascade. Washington Post. IT RAINS. It rains. And the leaves fall thick and fat. As the boughs are beat in the autumn blast; The sparrows hover 'neath sheltering eaves. And the voice of the wind is like one who grieves. It rains. It rair:?. And the team goes not afield to seed the earth for another yield; the.farmer gits by the kitchen fire And smokes his pipe to soothe his ire. It rains. It rains. And the fire burns cheerful and bright, And the heart of the mother U hn.i py tor!j?ht. And she smiles as the lamplight shimmers o'er , Her babes at play with their toys on the floor. It rains. It rains. ! And with voice with emotion choked, ' A mother, in garments tattered and soaked. Drags her weary feet with trembling tread To beg for her darlings a morsel of bread. It rains. It rains. And the sailor's wife is sad. As the wind shrieks by like a demon mad, And a prayer ascends to the grea white throne, "Oh, Father, leave me not alone!" It rains. It rains. And the tall trees sadly ware Their drenched boughs o'er a new made grave. And the grief stricken hearts burst forth again. As they think of the loved one out in the rain. It rains. A. Willis Lightbourn. I Hose of Olden Time. In the very long ago hose were not Etockings as now worn, but made long, and were often drawn up even to the waist, and, oddly enough, had pocket3 in their sides. We read, moreover, that in the time of the Tudors and Stuarts they were ot great variety, both of ma terial and color, and for such as could command the luxury were richly trim med and costly; they were often called "nether ftocks. " Harper's Bazar. Betsy Patterson Bonaparte. Mme. Betsy Patterson Bonaparte, the fiister-in-law of an emperor, was born in Baltimore, and after living many years abroad returned to her native land, where she passed the last years of her life. One of the old lady's crack stories in her latter days was of a lesson in eti quette given her hy the black butler of her host. At breakfast she motioned to him and handed him her cup, wish ing a second cup of tea. Uncle Bob, instead of taking the cup to his mistress at the head of the table, put it down with a great flourish on the sideboard. 4 4 But I wanted another cup of tea, ' said Mme. Bonaparte. "Did you, mum?" blandly asked Un cle Bob. "You see, mum, you put your spoon in de saucer, an that means you doan want no mo' tea. When you wants some mo' tea, do c'rect way is to put de spoon in de cup like dis heah," and Uncle Bob gravely illustrat ed the 4 4 c'rect" method of procedure. The family were on thorns, expecting an outbreak from the sister-in-law of an emperor, although there is no doubt that a black butler in his own baili wick could face an emperor himself, but Betsy was only amused and laughed heartily. After 50 years of money getting and money saving, she realized in the lat ter part of her life how futile it xll was and exnlaimed grimlv, ''Once I had everything but money! Now I have nothing but money." Boston Tran script. A Race of Giant Cannibals. Unlikely as it may seem to some who read these lines, it is a fact neverthe less that there is an island in the gulf of California, not more than GO miles from the Mexican mainland, which is inhabited by the remnants of a race of giant cannibals. This startling discov ery was made by a west coast natural ist early in 1891 and has since been confirmed by both United States and Mexican explorers. Mr. McNamara, the scientist referred to, has a photo graph of one of the men found by him on the island, that individual, although not one of tho largest, being over 7 feet in height. The island upon which they were found is known as the island or isle of Leri, and the original discoverer says that there is every evidence of can nibalism among them. St. Louis Re public. What Decided Him. ' 4 It's no use, "said the poet to the bar ber, "I will have to get my hair cut." 44 All right. Want it pretty short?" 4 4 Close up. 1 want the job attended to thorough l-." "Long hair ain't in style any more," ventured the barber in an effort to be genial. "It isn't the style I care for. Just a few minutes ago I was introduced to a man and he said, 'Which do you play, football or the piano V " Washington Star. His Wife's Name. An old farmer, intent on making his will, was asked by a lawyer the name of his wife, when he gravely replied: "Well, indeed, I really don't recollect what it is. We've been married for up ward of 40 years, and I've always called her my old woman." Tho lawyer left a blank to be filled up when his old woman's name was ascertained. New York Mail and Express. Trinity College One of the most interesting collec tions of historical papers in the country is in the pos-session of Joseph Hilton of Pittsburg. The collection includes many old, rare autographs and newspapers. An "election extra," issued by The Ledger in 1844. is a prized relic belong ing to Mr. Hilton. A medical journal commends the in vention for discovery of a method f treating certain disease by a doctor in Trinidad, but savs that "unfortunate ly" he is debarred from putting it into practice in his country owing to the scarcity of these particular diseases there. A fountain that stood for manv years on the Main street square in Pawtuck- et, R. I., has been removed and set up in a cemetery. Its base bears in big letters the touchingly appropriate word Welcome. Some women are awfully touchy. A widow has brought an action against a paper which said that her husband bad gone to a happier home.
