The Wyomuie Cowboys and Their
As you'iningle with these cow- ;
boys yon will find them a strange
mixture of good-nature and reck
lessness. You are -as safe with
them alone on the plains as with
any class of men, so long as you
do not impose on them. The
will even deny themselves for your
comfort, and imperil their lives
lor your safety. But impose upon
them or arouse their ire. and your
life is of no moie value in their
esteem than that of a cayote.
Morally, as a class, they are foul
mouthed, blasphemous, drunken,
lecherous, utterly corrupt. Usually
harmless on the plains when sober,
the are dreaded in the towns, for
then liquor has the ascendency
over them. They are also as im
provident as the veriest "Jack" of
the sea. Employed as cowboys
only six months iu the year from
May till November their earn
ings arc soon squandered in disso
luteness, and the' then hunt or
get odd jobs to support themselves
until another cattle season begins.
They are never cumbered with
baggage. "What little they may
have besides the clothes the wear
and their revolvers or gun is car
ried in a bag, which they call their
"war bag' Several weeks since
one oLthem slung his war bag into
the wagon with the careless re
mark: "There, that holds all I've
earned for several years." They
arc utterly reckless of their own
lives. Dr. Davis recently shot and
wounded a huge bull buffalo a
most ugly antagonist in a fight.
Three cowboys immediately
lighted out after him. One
lariated him by the hoins, another
by the hind leg, and the third
dismounted and leaped upon the
enraged buffalo for a wild ride.
"Missou," another of these reck
less chaps, came upon four grizzly
bears, two old ones and two large
cubs. Unobserved by them, he
dismounted and shot at one. The
wounded bear turned upon the
other as though its mate was the
offender. For a little time the
fur flew, and the very trees
seemed to shake with the roar of
the fighting beasts. "Missou" says
he lay in ambush and shook his
sides with laughter while watch
ing the combat. Then he shot
again and laid out one of the cubs.
This shot attracted the attention
of the bears and they made for
him. Dropping his gun, he hast
ily grabbed the pommel of his
saddle, and just succeeded in
drawing himself upon his fright
" encd and running horse. The
name of this fellow, so called from
being a Misourian, suggests the
fact that each one is dubbed with
a name, and always one suited to
seme peculiar characteristic. For
example, one upon this ranch is
called "Gun Sack Pete;" another
"Windy Jim," suggested by the
scantness of his wardrobe. These
combined facts will show the ap
propriateness of a title given these
fellows in a previous letter the
Bedouins of the plains. They
never own any interest in the
stock they tend. This dark pic
ture of the cowboys ought to be
lightened by the statement that
there is occasionally a white sheep
among the black. True and de
voted Christians are found in such
company men who kneel down
regularly and offer their prayers
in the midst of their bawdy and
cursing associates. Thev are like
Lot in Sodom. Dakota Paper.

"Washington Territory Hops.
Puyallup valley, located about
ten miles east of Tacoma, i the
great hop producing section of
the Pacific coast, and. 1 believe,
of the United States. This year
there is a hop famine in Europe,
and as a consequence the price
has advanced from four to five
hundred per cent. The hop
growers in Puyallup are in high
clover, so to speak some of them
clearing fifty thousand dollars on
their crop. Before the picking
season opened, they sent a mes
senger up the coast to nolifv the
Indians of an advance in the price
of picking hops, for all the hop
picking is done by Indians. This
welcome news had the effect of
bringing Si washes from the north
ern part of British Columbia, and
when we were passing from Ta
coma to Seattle, the Sound was
completely dotted with their
canoes, all heading for Tacoma.
Each canoe contained from two
(buck sind squaw) to a dozen
children of all ages, occ:isionally a
dog or two in fact, the whole
outfit, household goods, gods and
possessions!" the family. Many
of the canoes were thus loaded
down almost to the water'a edge.
They live in these canoes by day,
stopping at night on the shore at
any convenient spot, cook a
salmon, then repose beneath a
blanket, a tree, a rock or anything
handy. The squaws and children
do most of the hop picking, the
head of the family considering it
beneath the dignity of his lord
ship to labor, feeling better satis
fied to indulge in the to him more
congenial pastime of loafing
around and uamblui":. I should
judge we saw not less than thirty
of these canoes, and they certainly
presented a very picturesque ap
pearance as all hands paddled
along on the mirrored waters of
the Sound, reminding one very
forcibly of the gondolas of Venice.
S. F. Bulletin Correspondence
A Bear Story.
The Dalles Times-Mountaineer
learns that some two or three
weeks since a German had a band
of sheep on the head waters of
Mill creek, and among the rest he
owned a couple of thoroughbred
rams. For safe keeping he tied
them together with a rope leaving
some five or six feet of slack be
tween them. During the night a
bear came along and captured one
of the ramsand carried it off into the
woods within three or four hundred
yards of the house and made a
meal of him, the other being1 with
the unfortunate ram all the time,
and when found was still tied to
the dead one. Barring a few bruises
and scratches and the fact that he
had lost considerable wool, he was
all right. In going over the route,
so our reporter was informed, the
bear had taken the two sheep over
logs that were from two to five feet
through, and along the road were
evidences of desperate struggles
but with the inevitable result that
bruin came out master, and
marched riht along. Once in a
while could be seen where the ram
set his feet iu the earth and made
a stand for liberty, but it was no
use. Our reporter thinks that ram
must have had a very lonesome
night of it listening to bruin
crunching his companion, and if
ever he had serious thoughts in his
life he must have had them at that
The method in which Japanese
newspapers are conducted is of
ten amusingly naive. A recent
issue of the Nichi Nichi Shimbun
which, like all its native con
temporaries, is printed, not in col
umns, but in squares came out
with one square blank, the empty
space being covered with a num
ber of straight lines. The editor
apologizes for the extraordinary
appearance of the paper, informing
his readers that at the last moment
he found that what he had written
was all wrong, and he had to take
it out. He had no time to fill up
with anything else, and there was
nothing to be done but to leave
the space with nothing in it.
Keeping the Baby Quiet
An English gentlcmau who
passed months hunting among the
Rocky mountains, says hi, fir-t
genuine impression of the west
came while he was riding over an
arid plain and from a squalling
babv. It icvealed to him the in
genuity with which a western
woman adapts heitelf to ciicum
stances. and makes the most ol her
limited resources. "There was
nothing," he sa'S, '-very peculiar
about the appearance of this baby
that 1 saw just ahead of me. It
was not overburdened with gar
ments, and was strapped. Indian
fashion, to a board about two feet
long and one broad.
"The board and the baby were
leaning against the log wall of the
shanty, on its shady side. Theie
was nobody near. The baby
seemed very happy, lus little
arms were free and kept up con
"As my horse came nearer, 1
saw some strings were dangling
about the child's neck, and that
one was tied to the big toe of its
rosy little feet.
"I was puzzled. Dismounting,
I had the curiosity examine the
tape arrangement. The child was
sucking at a bit of raw pork about
the size of a walnut. This was
tied to one end of the string, while
the piece of twine, knotted to the
board over its head, prevented the
pork, from falling to the ground
should the child drop it.
Suddenly the child grew very
red in the face. Then its eyes
filled with tears, and its little arms
beat the air with frantic energy.
At that moment the mother made
" 'That baby is choking, madam,'
" 'No, he ain't, he ain't,' she re
"At this instant, the infantile
legs began to work. One kick,
two kicks, and there on the bib lay
the piece of pork, jerked from the
throat of the baby by the string
tied to the big toe.
" 'Ain't you ever seen this afore,
mister?' asked the, mother, observ
ing the Fnglisinan's surprised
" ' No o o,' he answered
" 'Then kinder o' remembrance
it. Mayhapsyer wife won't go batik
on it.' " Boston Herald:
My wife's mother was afflicted
with rheumatism for twenty years
and tried almost every remedy,
without any relief until she used
St. Jacobs Oil. Three bottles en
tirely cured her. It is the best
remedy 1 have ever seen," writes
