THE, INDIAN'S MUSTANG.
Horses' Were Introduced in America by
the Spaniards and Some Escaped.
The Indian Horses of the mountain
anil phiins tribes were originally of that
wild stock once found in vast herds all
over the intracontinent region, and
which had their beginning from those
that strayed from the Spaniards in old
Mexico, as there were no animals, of
that- character on the continent until
the SfKiuir.h conquest, if wc except an
extinct :;peei: s found only as a fossil on
the plains of Kansas. These were geo
logical specimens lony before the ad
vent of the Indian, :md of such a re
mote igc. s t bewilder the mind in its
1'vou until the middle of the
eighteenth ecntury the Indians of the
country i:::,t of the Mississippi used to
laugh at the white man, who could not
wall: but must ride a horse. The In
dian thought nothing- of keeping up a
'Vlog' trot" all day, making his fifty and
sixty miles during that time.
The wild horses of the American con
nnt. nnms roamed from the border of
old Mexico as far north as uaice Win
nipeg, says u writer in the Kansas
City Star. Twenty-three years ago
there were a great many wandering
over the broad, ffrassy bottoms of the
Cimarron, in southwestern Kansas; per
haps they are not all Extinct yet. All
the wild horses that I have ever seen
were of a small stature pony built in
every instance but possessing a won
derful amount of endurance; a tough,
hardy animal, will litted to perform the
peculiar duties the Indians demanded
of him. The savages arc very hard on
their animals, and nnless their horses
were constituted to '"live on cactus and
drink the green slime of the buffalo
wallows" they would have become ex
tinct probably long ago. When caught
young they are easily broken, but ii
taken at an advanced age they are per
1 remember one that used to do duty
on the old stage line between Ells
worth and Sterling, about seventeen
years ago. He was the most vicious
brute it has ever been my fortune tc
see. Whenever it became necessary to
shoe him he had to be knocked down
with an ax, and lcfore he recovered his
senses tied, and only in that conditior
would the blacksmith dare approacl
him. His endurance was something
marvelous; his driver, the only man thai
could do anything with him at all, triec
for years to wear iiim out, but with
out success, and he succumbed at las1
only to old ago. I have ridden behinc
him many a time, but in momentary

The Queer Fate of an Inquisitive Fct
A tame beaver kept by the soldiers at
a fort in Wyoming became quite famous
for his sagacity. Caught while young
and perfectly tamed, he became very
docile and a great favorite at the fort.
The little fellow could never be cured
of his instinct to build dams,' and it is
related that he once undertook to dam
the Platte river, working for months all
night long, and returning to the fort
every morning at sunrise. ' lie cut down
quite a number of trees, but life proved
too short for the completion of his
plans. While around the fort he was
constantly turning over every Kind ot
' vessel that contained water and collect
ing sticks to head it off as it flowed
away. One night by oversight the
beaver was locked up in the warehouse,
aitd during the night, in nosing around,
he discovered a ten-gallon can of mo
lasses that had been left uncovered.
rThat discovery proved his doom. The
I next day he was found gasping for life,
having been caught in' the sticky mass
as the can was overturned. He never
recovered from the shock, and was ten
derly buried in the presence of a large
circle of his friends.

WHISTLING A GIFT.
What Professional I-aly Whistler Says
" About the Art.
Mrs. ' Alice ' Shaw, the celebrated
American whistler, has this to say of
her-peculiar 'gift: "A clever whistler
must be born, not male. The natural
gifts necessary are a good ear, a sound
pair of lungs, a favorable formation of
the cavity of the mouth, regular teeth
and a flexibility and agility in the
orbicular and buccinatory-museles. The
strain on these, muscles are great.
After an hour's practice I have been
compelled to apply electricity to my
hps to get them into a normal condi
tion. I breathe like a . singer, from the
diaphragm, and whistle as any artist
would sing. . Trilling is to me as. easy
and natural as ordinary speech. It is
the notes which must be long sustained
that are most difficult. 'My compass is
two and three-fourths octaves. I never
whistle on : an inward breath. My
notes are always directed outward.
The higher the note the closer my lips;
the lower tne note tne larger the orifice.
The possibilities of a whistle arc almost
mlimited. The art is at present in its
Infancy. I phrase music as do the most
careful singers. During my first per
formances my lips became so dry that
tt was difficult to produce a clear, liquid
tone. I now use an ointment which
abviates that difficulty. I practice an
hOur sometimes more daily, and this
has had a doubly beneficial effect. It
uas not only enchanced my proficiency
as a whistler; it has caused my chest to
expand four inches in the last three
Faris Figuring; on Another Siege.
There are 8,800,000 souls within te
wall of circumvallation formed by the
outer line of works defending ' Paris.
The French commissariat, in a .recent
report to the French minister of war,
estimates that in order to provide for a
siege of six months' duration the follow
ing stocks would have to be laid in:
Breadstuff s, 243.000 tons; meat, 118,100
tons; salt, 14,793 tons; dry vegetables,
34,440 tons; potatoes, 295,260 tons; wine,
66,029,000 gallons; milk, 6,602,900 cubic
meters; coal, 1,000,000 tons; hay, 688,-
940 tons; straw, 68,894 tons, and oats,
50,052 tons. These supplies,- costing
about $100,000,000, would, in case of an
other siege,' be served out to the retail
tradesmen, who would each be held re
sponsible for supplying a group of
houses. Rosters would be prepared,
and each family would receive a card
on which would appear the exact hour
