A Cowboy' Llvaly Kiirlne ea Ilia
Hark nf m llurklua; Itronrho.
Perry BtilT, a cowboy employed on
George W. Hunter' runch, was In town
with three gray wolf skins and three
coyote skills, all of which netted him
12(1.25. The county pays three dollar
bounty for wolf scalp und seventy five
cents for coyote, and the Ntockmen's
Protective owttH iiition pay five dollars
Huxter'a ranch 1 ubotit fifty mile
northeast of hero, on Little Horse
creek. Mr. Stiff says there are plenty
of wolves there. The skin he brought
in were from wolves which he rojiod
while riding the range. An a wolf
hunter the cowboy hiut no far been
more successful than the Weinberg of
the Cheyenne Wildcat club, and IiIb
exjierience with the animal ha ls-cri
much more thriilllng. While riding u
broueho Mr. Stiff wiw a puck of wolves
chasing a bunch of horse, hi the
rear of which went an old niaro am
colt, the object of the chase being
fresh colt at. Stiff got behind a
hill, and, an the frightened horse flew
by, ho put spurs to hi broncho, and
singling out the blggi-st wolf In the
pack, made the ohnso.
An the cowlsiy's horse wu fresh und
the wolf already tired, It wan not long
until tint nnone wix (lroix'il over the
head of the big gray. The unlmd's
forefisit went through the loop, how
ever, and the rope tightened around
hi body In such a way that he wa
able to make a strong pull. Finding
hiiiiHelf at the end of the roie, the
brute, after failing t cut it with hi
iiharp teeth, made a dash for lilierty in
another direction. The movement drew
the ropu about the broncho' hind leg
and tail, and tiie natural result was
soma very hard bucking.
Hot ween the bucking horse ami the
wolf Stiff had hix attention pretty well
taken up. He held to the bucking
strap und finally got straight, with the
wolf at the end of the ropo ami wpiani
In front of the lionm. Hy thin time the
wolf refused to run. but wit up, ami,
allowing hi long, sharp tooth, wan
ready for a tight Thin wan Just what
the cowboy wanted. Killing up close
to hi wolfnhip to get um much Muck a
possible, he turned ipiickly and ap
plied the spurs. When the mx) tight
ened the wolf turned a couple of somer
saults and wa almost broken In two,
but the rope held llrui to the middle
Hy a series of hucIi maneuvering the
wolf wan dually worn out. and dragged
to the ranch. Mr. Stiff say he Iiiin
wen a high M nine wolves In a pack.
Not long ago four of them killed a calf
hi Haxter'n paxture. Stiff made a sug
gestlon to another cow liny that while
the animal were full of calf meat wa
a good time to elinne them down, The
suggestion was acted upon, and after a
chiiMt of nearly three mile a big fellow
wa caught. Mr. Still also roped three
utitcliici) during the Hiiiiimer. He
Suva that If the Cheyenne boy will
come out they can have plenty of sport.
Wolves are need every day, and there
would be no trouhle In getting up a
chase with hound. He think some
wolve may be found about ten mile
north of thu P O ranch. -Cheyenne

There was once a man who lived in
the forest far from the rest of hi tribe.
Ho lout hi wife and wa very lonely.
After awhile he made a wooden doll
about her i.e, dressed It lu the clothe

Not long ago a cow died In the vicin
ity of the Ouiim ranch, near the head
of Gooho creek, south of Wagon Wheel
gap. It soon became apparent to Wil
liam Ouinn. owner of the ranch, that
the carcaxHof the cow wa lx-ing visited
by a bear of very largo dimension, and,
h company with Dell McClellaml, Mr.
tiuinn decided to "it up" with the
bear and endeavor to get a shot at it
by night. Thi wa done, but owing to
darkness the Ix-ar wa not killed by
A the next resort, a largo Ix'ur trip,
weighing nlx.ut seventy live pounds,
wa procured and set near the dead
"critter," and the trapper went to bed
laughing at the trick they had played
on the boar. The trap wa chained to
a polo eighteen feet long and eight
inches through at the large end.
In the morning an examination of
the preml.se about the dead cow
showed plainly that the lx-ar and a
cub had boon there during the night.
There was a large track, cighti
Inches long and six or seven Inches
wide, and a small track, evidently
made by a cub. The trap, however,
wax gone, and with it the eighteen foot
fade, and the disturlx-d condition of
the ground showed conclusively that
the hear had been caught ill the trap.
The trail, however, away from the
scene, wax only the trail of two bears-
there wa not a mark of dragging oil her
trap or pole,
Mr. (iuinii took up the trail, which
he followed eight mile without com
ing upon the bears, trap or mIo. At
the camp of Mr. Tom Carey, seven
mile away, that gentleman told how
in the night he had been awakened by
a sound a of miinething walking, with
an occasional pause and heavy fall on
the ground, a though something bad
been dropped. Having no gun Mr
Carey sat up in his lent the bain ol
the night and endeavored to keep
warm by poking wood into a sheet iron
'flu. trail was to owed a llllle or so
further and then lost. In one place
the bears had passed throii'.di a heavy
ipiaking aspen thicket and had literally
mowed anwatli through the Hipliugi,
showing that the trap and pole were
being taking along.
The mil iinil inference is that the bear
was caught in the trap and bad picked
up the kiinie with the pole and Marled
for the Inl1. I he bear I an old ot
fender in those part, and Mr. (iuinn
boors to lllid It yet.

The transplanting of fruit trees in the

fruit trees on a farm which could be

instances to obtain a half-grown tree and
plant it in the place of the old one.
