What Is Fatigue*?
Fatiguo is tlio natural result of labor,
nud us such is n periodic symptom with
which every healthy person is familiur.
It is oue of tho laws of orgunio lifo
that periods of relaxation shall succeed
periods of activity. Tho heart itsolf is
uorrually in repose for about one-third
of tho time consumed by each beut?a
fact in which t hero is something par?
ticularly suggostivo and interesting,
since physiologists agree that about one
third of tho 24 hours should bo devoted
Life is mado up of a series of vibra?
tions in which tension and rest succeed
each other. The heart vibrates about 70
times a minute; the vibrations of tho
respiratory organs occur ubout 10 tiinea
in tbesamo period, while tho vibrations
of the whole organism may be said to
complete their cycle once in 24 hours.
Abnormal fatigue, a state approaching
exhaustion, occurs when one attempts to
alter nature's rhythm, when tho hours
of tonsiou are mado to encroach upon
thoso which should be devoted to rest,
when musclo and nerve already fatigued
are driven to further exertion. Fatiguo
of a kind known as overtraining re?
sults, in tho caso of the athlete, in heart
weakness and shortness of breath?"loss*
of wind," as it is called?while the long
continued fatigue occasioned by excess
ive application to professional or busi?
ness pursuits results in nervous prostra?
tion or even in paralysis.
While excessive fatiguo is in itsolf un?
wise, one of tho chief dangers which re?
sults from it is that commonly indicated
by tho term "catching cold." Thus the
danger of sitting in a draft or on tho
damp gronnd is many times doubled
after great exertion. Tho application of
heat to the surface is a moro logical pro?
cedure after extreme fatiguo.
Loss of sleep is one of the first sypm
toms of abnormal fatigue. Habitual in?
somnia from this cause is to bo treated
only in one way, by absoluto rest.?
Tho 6tory of tho ScotcTi cow that caught
a golf ball with her tall serves to provo
that tho Scotch cow is not half so useful,
nor Intelligent, nor amiablo as tho Indian
unimal of tho sumo name. Tho other day
a Bombay golfer, approaching the sucond
hole, struck hiss ball as stalght as a die,
but just a little too hard. Spinning across
tho Kreon, if rolled against tho near hind
heel of a brindled cow. Before tho hall
had ceased rolling the sportive animal
kiokod out, gavo tho hall precise ly the re?
quired touch at 510 oluhs' length and holed
?iut. This, says tho Bombay Gazette, can
io vouched for.

THE RUSTLERS' WAR.
Outg-rowth of Trouble Between Cattlemen
In Wyoming Irrigation struggled for
some years with tin obstacle more forinkln
lile than aridity. This was the organized
stock interest which nourished on the
jniblio lands, wastefully using the public
streams to produoo crops of natural buy
anil water great herds of cattle. While
many of the leaders of this Industry were
of liberal and progressive mind, and freely
conceded that tbey had neither a moral
nor a legal right to stand in the way of
progress, an aggressive and troublesome
minority insisted that cattlo were worth
more than men to Wyoming.
Tho final oonfllot came in tho "rustler's
war" of lS'.ll.'. with It. ignominious and
crushing defeat of the cattlemen and their
hired outlaws from Texas. With that
fiasco the harriers of opposition fell once
and for all, and the irrigation sentiment
has situe dominated tin- state. Reclama?
tion and settlement In Wyoming and sim?
ilar localities elsewhere have never really
menaced tho stock industry, hut have rath
er vindicated the necessity of its reorganiza?
tion upon a more democratic liasls. Tlioie
will l>e more cattle in the aggregate, bat
distributed among a multitude of small
owners living in the irrigated valleys.
There they will raise the diversified prod
nets essential to their support, and great
crops of winter fodder for cattle, while the
adjacent uplands will servo for summer
pasture. This process lias begun, and it
results in the elevation of the character of
tho men and ?.f their Industry alike.?Wil?
