Occasionally by the hard baked mound
of a prairie dog's hole, the sunlight would
strike with a dull glitter on the back of
a rattlesnake, and the boya were never

ards, always making every effort to run
away from an attack; as, however, their
very best time was never faster than a
lazy man could walk, they were never
allowed to escape. They were easily
killed, a small blow from a quirt or the
knotted end of a lariat stretching them
out motionless but for a faint movement
of the tail, which the cow boys claim will
not die until sun-down.

he, aa a problem for solution, claim
that degree of, crtspnes withal that
rou'd r-ommend him as a novelty.
A a topic he is a o'.d aa Cain. As a

No peri;d of authentic hVtory, so far
a kuown, has held the small boy in
esteem, and ancient legends are full of
suggestions' derogatory to his character.
Pi gin mythology led off by furn'sbing
him with bow and quiver, and leaving
him single-hand-d to work the de-tnic-tiou

and hi au lacity have been growing in
an inverse ratio. While all this is con
ceded to be true, there is still no diminu
tion In the production of th's nu'sanc
aud no method available for his sup
pression. In the language of Sairy
(iamp, "fact is stubborn and can't be

for anything, the small boy i the one
nden:able fact of creation.
Tbe boy rises slowly but irresistibly
from street gamin to hoodlum, from
hoodlum to ward politician, from ward
politician to a seat in the Suite Legisla
ture, and so on through tbe chapter. He
is the terror of his own family, the per
petual torment of hia neighbors, the
ever-recurring proDiem oi a senooi
bojrd that wavers between tho "moral
suasion" plan and the method recom

the pompous discussions on the best

deviltry bcems but tha prom'se of future
greatness. His father tolerates because
murder is a crime and the community
leta him live because in ten or twelve
years he will have a vote that may be
bouirht for a small sum.
No man ha. the courage to attack one
of the least of these, lest he be found
stoning some future President and
lizhlinz hi own political possibilit'es.
The question has oeen to turn hi inge

repetition into some chic net where it
may cease to terrorize the general pub

WelL the problem has been solved.
Where the higher civilization has failed
necessity has accomplishel for the less
favored natives of the moun:a:o dis
tricts. An old settler from . the south
ern part of Kentucky says: "Where
mother, aunt and "young married
women have work to da' that will not
admit of chaperoning their own or
other person daughters, the small
brother is invariably tbe chnperone o'

c ompanion: goe with her to the spring,
and inedi.atively pad ile in tbe branch
while she tills her bucket Rcr duty is
to rrabble potatoes; he doe not w ait

wake, and sit on the fence, soft y
whistling, with eyes bent on the hin-

process after awhile, and Irom the milk

putting up of the chickens he never
leaves her, and any love-making that :s
carried on in his presence is simply
suicide to both parties," It is further
stated by the gentleman, who is not

wood, which he blows with peculiar
inleni.ty when when be sees any one

sometimes killed by his sister's almir

The above facts are respectfully mb-
mitted to the higher cUss of tociety
whose system of chaperonage is often
lax. lis adoption would relieve the
mothers and young married women of
a great deal of responsibility, and put
the small boy in a wav to show why be

whose prospects have been forever
bl ghted by a single remark of a small

value as a chaperone. He might be

TorpasiobiK Oil Walts With t0 Qaarta of
Xltra-Glreerlaa at a Shot.
In all the oil regions in Pennsylvania
up to the discovery of the Thom Creek
district in Butler County, great care
had to be taken in torpedoing a newly
drilled well so that the charge of nitro
glycerine might not be too heavy.
it was, the sand rock would be so badly
shattered that the well would be filled
up, and laborious and expensive work
made necessary to clean it out before i:
could ' be operated. A twenty-quart
toniedo was about the averaze size used,
and it was exploded in the shelL In
the Thom Creek region nitro-glycerine
to the amount of two hundred pounds
enough to destroy a city is dumped in
the well after it has been drilled far
enough in the sand rock and exploded.
Tbe sand is of such a nature that it does
not run in and fill np the hole after the
shot, no matter how heavy it may be.
It is not practicable to mile or handle
a two-hnndred-quart torpedo so a new
shell ta been constructed Irom which.
after it has been lowered to the sand.
its contents roav be dumped out in the
hole. , The sheil is then hoisted to the
surface, refilled with mtro-glycerine and
relowered to the rock. This dangerous
proceeding is repeated until there is
enough nitro-giycenne in we wen.
w ben it is exploded, and the tubing can
ihen be run down at once.
This peculiarity of the Thom Creek
sand facilitates operations greatly, but
makes the business ol weu snooting, by
which the lives of the workmen are al

dangerous i.aun.
