RulT.iIo Jones Has Made a Failure of
II is Theory.
Stockmen who hare clung to
the theory advanced by "Buffalo '
Jones to the effect that quarter
blood or half-blood buffaloes
would increase the value of
western cattle have been com
pelled to acknowledge their error.
Reports from Sioux City, in
which neighborhood there are
several half-blood buffalo herds,
indicate that the ranchmen who
have tried the experiment have
failed to achieve any success in
crossing domestic cattle with the
shaggy survivors of the one-time
monarchs of the plains. The
half-blood buffaloes are still buf
faloes, so far as the flavor and
texture of their meat is concerned,
and buffalo meat is strong and
coarse, and not to be compared
with prime beef. The hides are
not valuable, either, because the
front is rough and shaggy and
the high part is rather smooth,
like steer's. This variation of
texture makes it less valuable
than beef hide, aud consequently
in less demand.
The main argument advanced
by "Buffalo" Jones in favor of
crossing native cattle with the
American bison was that the
buffalo is a more economical
range feeder. The buffalo did
not tramp'.q down what grass he
did not eat, as cattle are apt to
do, and in consequence the supply
of grass wai always plentiful,
no matter how large the herds
that roamed the prairies every
year. But this 'argument loses
strength in view of the iact that
the range is disappearing. There
are no more immense herds, of
cattle feeding on thousands of
a,cres of buffalo gras?, as in early
days in the west. The ranchman
does most of lib feeding from
the harvested crops of alfalfa or
h,ay, and when it comes time to
fatten for the market the cattle
are shipped to the corn states.
This evolution in cattle feeding
has taken away the last claim
of the buffalo tj survival. It is
lamentable that the buffalo has
been so thoroughly exterminated
that there are few specimens left
for museums and preserves, but
the great herds of the animals
were not a necessity to civiliza
tion, and it was only natural
that they should have disap
peared, like the Indian, in the
march of civilization. Now that
the last claims of the champions
of the buffalo, front, a utilitarian
standpoint, have been disproved,
the quarter-blood and half-blood
herds will doubtless disappear as
quickly as did their full-blood
Worse Thau Death Valley.
Dreadful as Death valley is, its
northwestern arm, known as
Mesquite valley, is worse. All
the waters upon its surface are
poison, and down through the
canyon a hot, suffocating wind
blows with terrible velocity.
During its course through, the
desert it frequently gathers clouds
of white sand that have blinded
many a horse an ! rider, and at
frequent intervals it whirls down
the canyon like a cyclone of sharp
crystals. Under the glistening,
beds of salt and borax are conceal
ed streams oT salt water which
flow sluggishly toward some
unknown outlet or may be lapped
up by the parched winds.
One of the strangest phenomena
of thisextraordinary place is what
frontiersmen, for want of a better
name, have called "raising
earth." By the action of the sun
a crust composed of minerals and
clay has been formed on the
surface, and by some curious pres
sure of nature has been lifted
from the earth in irregular curves
like pie crust in the oven. The
cavity between this crust and the
solid earth varies from one to ten
feet, and the depth frequently
changes after heavy windstorms
by the displacement of the air
Kpnpatll TVli. mart "it tl.a 1 t . . 1
that Moos upon this crust is irone I
forever. It is absolutely iinjo-'
sible for any .one to extricate
himself when plunging about in
the "raising earth." Chicago

Brother Crawford "is a most

commended by his brothers of

a $200 gold and diamond badge.
Jack will recite his great poem,
"Ratljn' Joe's Prayer," which
Deacon Duncan took exception to

recited it for the first time,
twenty-two years ago, in this
Captain Jack Crawford is
deserving of success and is
indorsed by officers of the army
under whom lie has served from
Sheridan to Lawton. Colonel
Marshal, who has known Captain
Jack for over twenty-five years,
and under whom he served, will
attend with a large delegation
from the Presidio to-night, and
thirty seats are reserved for
officers and ladies to-morrow
evening at the Alta. Captain
Jack's play is a true picture of
frontier military life, and highly
appreciated by army people
because of ts purity and truth,

which it has attained on its first
