There have been instances where the
kwses reached a-n much as 50 per cent
of fine kit. in which the animals were
valued at about J8 each. As a re-
:lt of these losses the owners make
a practice where possible of shelter -mg
their shorn sheep in canyons and
keeping them near shelter during- un
Mitie.i weather in ear'y spring. Later
the sheep are allowed to graze- more
widely, and the herders mart have
w.iin.ns of storms sufficiently In ad-miti.-
to enable them to drive tii
sheep to the nearest shelter. During'
the springs of ISH and 19ir thou
sands of sheep beyond the reach of
shelter perished in severe storms that
swept over these states.
The service during the spring was
operated through 25 distributing cen

and special warnings covering tem-i
perature. ra4n. snow, winds, clouds,
and clear sky. all . of which have a
bearing on the safety of sheep, were
distributed to nearly inn other com

by telephone to several hundred ad

warnings reached the owners of most
of the sheep In the states by noon.

H. v Xieter is no cowboy but he
wants to be. His desire plus a nerve
not easily daunted may qualify him
some day to ride in the Round-t'p
finals, but just at present he is pay

Nieter is of German extraction and
the lure of the west got him. Dur
ing the summer he hired out as a sack
sewer to John Adams, who farms
near Adams, but that was a means to
an end. He had his eye on the
Hound-l'p and wanted a chance to
ride in the bucking contest. To get
the chance ha must first have an
outfit and then he must have prac
tice. With a goodly portion of his sum
mer wages he purchased a cowboy
outfit from saddle to chaps, and he
showed up at the first tryout of
bucket. He was the first to volun
teer to ride. He was thrown three
times that afternoon, a strange horse.
Bugs and Hotfoot each getting a fall
from him.
At the very next tryout he was back
on the job. He was thrown three
times more, the last tie by Sharkey,
the bucking bull. He struck on his
head and was stunned for five or ten
- .
minutes, but he recovered with his
nerve unshaken.
At the third tryout he asked to ride

Slogans may come and slogans may
go, but this slogan goes on forever. It
has been the official slogan of the
Round-Up since the first year.
"Let 'er Buck!" There's something
about It that compels utterance. Once
heard, never forgotten and frequent
ly repeated. That's It You can't get
away from It, no matter how utaid,
how sedate, or how taciturn you are
Fathers may reprimand their buys
for mouthing It, but they might an
well try to dam the waters of Niagara
Mothers may admonish their daugh
ters In tones of holy horror u;anvi
unlng the unrefined cry of the Kound
L'p, but they cannot suppress It. They
themselves cannot refrain at time?
from making It the expression of
their exuberance.
Since the origin of the Round-Up
this unparalleled slogan has spread,
until It no lunger has a mere local ut
terance. Its popularity has led the
management of other frontier shows
to adopt it, or weakly to Imitate It;
but never can they steal It away.
It poewsses all of the qualifications
neceo-ary for a really good slogan
namely, brevity, originality and nap
Furthermore, It is typical of the fron
tier and charged with the very spirit
of the Jlound-Up,
Who originated the slogan, do you
ask? There are several who claim
the credit, but the community has
never cared sufficiently to try out the
claims. They have the slogan; It has
become fumous, and they Intend to
hold on to It until It dies of senile de
cay. Until then, "Let 'er Duck!"

Report of fight between Captain
Wilson's company of volunteers and
Snakes. We camped at Captain Mar
tin's ranch on Camas Prairie. There
were 25 men In the company. Six or
feven more were with us who did not
belong to the company. At half past
six we started from camp for Alble
ranch on the other side of Camas
Prairie. After going about three
miles we saw one hostile Indian spy.
We run him down and killed him.
Took a good American, four year
old horse from him and his outfit and
scalped him. We then rode down
to the Alble ranch five miles from
our camp last night Halted an hour
and concluded to scout Camas Prair
ie. We then started and went around
to where we had killed the Indian.
Made a slight halt and while we were
there we heard them firing on two
herders we left at AlWe ranch, which
we suppose are killed. We started for
that point to see what was done and
found the Snakes leaving the Alble
ranch and coming In the direction of
Pendleton. At the sight of the In-
dians all the men except Dud Ptrsglt
and Henry Willis started for the cam
of the night ibefore where we Intend
ed to fort. Beagle and Willis started
In the direction of the Indiana and as
soon asthey struck open prairie firing
commenced between them and the
Indians. After firing five or six
rounds apiece Willis, while aiming to
shoot, was shot In the hand, the ball
passing so close to his head that he
was stunned, so that he fell from bis
horse and could not get up for about
two minutes. After rising and falling
the second time Beagle seeing that
he was able to ride, rode back to the
company which was halted about it
yards dLstant but he could not get
them to go to th assistance of Willis.
After this he tried to catch Willis'
horse, but was unable to do so. All
this time he was exchanging occasion
al shots with the Indians. Finding be
could not catch the horse he rode
back to where Willis was, got him up
behind him and brought him to the
company, which was retreating.
