Pa and the Bad ' Boy Stop Off at a
Lively Western TownFa Buys
Mining Stock and Takes Fart In
a Babbit Drive.
Well, we are on the way back home,
after having engaged Indians, cowboys,
rough riders and highway robbers to
Join our -show for next season. ; Pa
felt real young and kitteny when we
came to the railroad, after leaving our
robber friends at the Hole in the Wall,
far into the mountain country. We
came to a lively town on the railroad,
where every other house is a gambling
house, and every other one a plain
saloon, and there was great excitement
in the town over our arrival, 'cause
there don't very many rich and pros
perous people stop there.
, Pa had looked .over the money the
robbers had given him, to throw it
away, because it was old-fashioned
The Fony Tossed Fa in the Air.
confederate money, when he found
that there was only one bundle of con
federate money, and the rest was all
good greenbacks, the bundle of con
federate money probably having been
shipped west to some museum, and the
robbers having got hold of it in the
dark, brought it along. Pa burned
up the bad money at the hotel, and
then he got stuck on the town, and
said he would stay there a few days
and rest up, and incidentally break a
few faro banks, by a system, the way
the smart alecks break the bank at
Monte Carlo. ......
I teased pa to take the first train for
home, so we could Join the circus be
fore it closed the season, and he could
report to the managers the result of
his business trip to the west, but pa
said he had heard of a man who had a
herd of buffalo on a ranch not far from
that town, and before he re tunned to
the show he was going to buy a herd
.- Pa Swung
of buffalo tor the cowboys and Indians
to chase around the wild west show.
I couldn't do anything with pa, so
we stayed at that town until pa got
good and ready to go home. He pucked
the faro bank some, but the gamblers
soon found he had so much money
that he could break any bank, so' they
closed up their lay-outs and began to
sell pa mining stock in mines which
were fabulously rich if. they only had
money to develop them. They salted
some mines near town for" pa to ex
amine, and when he found that they
contained gold enough in every shovel
ful of dirt to make a man crazy, he
bought a whole lot of stock, and then
the gamblers entertained - pa for all
that was out .,'1 .
They got up dances and fandangos,
and pa was it, sure, and I was proud
of him, cause he did not lose his head.
He Just acted dignified, - and . they
thought they were entertaining a dis
tinguished man. ' Everything would
have gone all right, and we would have
got out with honor. If It hadn't been
for the annual rabbit drive that came
off while we were there. Part of the
country is irrigated, and good crops
I are grown, but the jackrabblta are so
numerous that they come in off the
plains adjoining the green spots, at
night, and eat everything in sight, so
once a year the people get up a rabbit
drive and go out in the night by the
hundred, on horseback, and-surround
the country for ten miles or so, and at
daylight ride along towards a corral,
where thousands of rabbits are driven
in and slaughtered with clubs. , The
men ride close together, with dogs,
and no guilty rabbit can escape. " ,
Pa thought it would be a picnic, and
so we went along, but pa wishes that he
had let well enough alone and kept out
of the rabbit game. Those natives are
full of fun, and on tnese rabbit drives
they always pick out some man to
have fun with, and they picked out pa
as the victim. We rode along for a
couple of hours, fluslwng rabbits by the
dozen, and they would run along ahead
of us, and multiply, so that when the
corral was in sight ahead the prairie
was alive with long eared animals, so
the earth seemed to be moving, and It
almost made a man dizzy to look at
The hundreds of men on horseback
had come in close together from all
sides, and when we were within half
a mile of the corral the crowd stopped
at a signal, and the leader told pa that
now was the time to make a cavalry
charge on the rabbits, and he asked pa
If he was afraid .and wanted to go
back, and pa said he had been a sol
dier and charged the enemy; had been
a politician and had fought In hot
campaigns; had hunted tigers and
Hons in the Jungle, and rode bare-
backed in the circus, and gone into
lions' dens, and been married, and he
guessed he was not going to show the
white feather, chasing Jackrabblta
They could sound the bugle charge as
soon as they got ready, and they would
find him in the game till the curtain
was rung down.
That was what they wanted pa to
say, so, as pa's horse was tired, they
suggested that he get on to a fresh
horse, and pa said all right, they
couldn't get a horse too fresh for him,
and he got on to a spunky pony, and
I noticed that there was no bit In the
pony's mouth, but only a rope around
the pony's nose, and I was afraid some
thing would happen to pa. I told him
he and I better dismount, and climb a
mesqulte tree and watch the fun from
a safe place. ,
Pa said: "Not on your life; your pa
is going right amongst the big game,
and is going to make those rabbits
Els Ax Handle.
think the day of Judgment has arrived.
Give me a club."
The leader handed pa an ax handle,
and when we looked ahead towards the
corral where the rabbits had been
driven, It seemed as though there were
a million of them, and ' they were
Jumping over each other so it looked
as though there was a snow bank of
rabbits four feet thick. When pa said
he was ready a fellow sounded a bugle,
and pa's pony started off on the Jump
for the corral, and all the other horses
suited, and everybody yelled, but they
held back their horses so pa could have
the whole field to himself. . ,
Gee, but I was sorry for pa. His
horse rushed right into " the corral
amongst the rabbits, and When it got
right where the rabbits were the thick
est, the darn horse began to buck,- and
tossed pa In the air Just as though he
had been thrown up in a blanket, and
Be came down on a soft bed of strug
gling, and scared rabbits, and the other
horsemen stopped at the edge' of the
corral and watched pa, and I got bar
my horse and climbed up on a post of
the corral and tried to pick out pa.
Then all the hundred or more docs
were let loose In amongst pa and tie
rabbits, and it was a sight worth go
ing miles to see if It had been some
body else than pa that was holding the
center of the stage, and all the crowd
laughing at pa, and yelling to him to
stand his ground.
Well, pa swung his ax handle and
klllod an occasional rabbit, but there
were thoueands all around, and pa
seemed to be wading up to his middle
in rabbits, and they would Jump all
over him, and bunt him with their
heads, and scratch him with their toe
nails, and the dogs would grab rabbits
and shake them, and pa would fall
down and rabbits would run over him
till you couldn't see pa at all. Then
he would raise up again and maul the
animals with bis club, and bis c'.othei
were so covered with rabbit hair that
he looked like a big rabbit himself.
He lost his hat and looked as though
he. was getting exhausted, and then he
stopped and spit on his hands and
yelled to. the rest of the tnen, who had
dismounted and were lined up at the
edge of the corral, and said: "You
condemned ' loafers,, why -don't you
come in here and help us dogs kill o
these . vermin, cause I don't want to
have all the fun. Come on In, the wa
ter Is fine," and pa laughed as though
he was in swimming and wanted the
rest of the gang to come in.
The crowd thought they had given
the distinguished stranger his Inning,
and so they all rushed in with clubs
and began to kill rabbits and drive
them away from fa. - In an hour or
so the. most of them were killed, and
pa was. so tired he went and sat down
on the ground to rest, and I got down
off ray perch and went to pa and asked
him what he thought of this latest ex
perience, and I began to pick rabbit
hairs off pa's clothes.
."I'll tell you what it is. Hennery,"
said pa, as he breathed hard, as though
he had been running a foot race, "this-
rabbit drive reminds me of the way
the rich corporations look upon the
poor people, Just as we look upon the
jackrabblta. We pity a single Jack-
rabbit, and he runs when he see3 us,
and seems to say: 'Please, mister, let
me alone, and let me nibble around
and eat the stuff you do not wantrand
we drive them into a bunch, the way
the rich and mean iron-handed trusts
drive the people, and then we turn in
and club them with the ax handle of
graft and greed, and we keep our pow
er over them, if enough are killed off
so we are in the majority, but the
Jackrabblta that escape the drive keep
on breeding, like the poor people that
the trusts try to exterminate. ; Some
day the Jackrabbit and the poor people
will get nerve enough to fight back,
and then the jackrabbit and the poor
people will outnumber the men who
fight them and kill them, and they will
turn on the cowboys with the clubs,
and the trusts with the big head, and
drive those who now pursue them into
corrals on the prairies and into peni
tentiaries In the states, and those who
are pig-headed .and cruel will get
I told pa I thought 1 could see,
though there were rabbit hairs in my
eyes, and then I got pa to get up and
mount his horse, and we rode back to
town with the gang, while the 6,000
rabbit carcasses were hauled to town
In wagons and loaded on the cars.
"Where do you send those Jackrab-
bits?" asked pa of the leader of the
slayers, as he watched them loading
"To the Chicago packing houses,"
said the man. "They make the finest
canned chicken you ever et"
"Th9 devil, you say," saM pa. "Then
we have been working all day to make

he could train the rabbits.
