snw them. There Is a well authenti
cated story Hint the garrison at Tort
Kearney actually tired their cannon at
tin linmome herd ome to pent thein
Inking the fort In n rush. .Many olllcera
nnd cavalrymen who were stationed
on the frontier years ugo tell of trnvel
Ing for months nt n time nnd never
being out of sight of their countless
numbers. Tho bison wns particularly
numerous In Knnsns nt one time,
owing to Hie fnct that the buffalo
grnsa wna tbero moat plentiful. At
times the plnlna were a solid, moving
n nsa of monsters; as far ns the eye
rould seo they were visible In enor
mous numbers. Trains were often tie
Inyed while a herd crossed the tracks
ot the I'nlon Taclflc Ilnllrond.
At one time they roamed all over the
' otintry. Nnturally migratory, the In
dians knew their wondering habits,
nnd followed them. They were In thosj
ilnja of the greatest vnluc to the In
timitis. They supplied nenrly all of
their food, ami mlllloiu were slaugh
tered each yenr for the sustenance of
Hie red man. Not only did the buffalo
supply food, but furnished them with
robes nnd hides for clothing nud
The Indians tundo tools from the
hide, burns and bones of the buffalo.
The hide of the bulls was tanned nnd
used for lodge covers. Dried In the
sun after the hair was removed, tho
tilde became almost as hard as flint,
And was mcd for moccasin soles and
belts. Ijild on the ground, the dried
hide kept out the dampness and form
ed n fnlrly good bed. Itnw hide was
cut into strands nnd braided Into
ropes. Green hide was converted Into
kettles mid nl-o Into rn'noes. llattle
shields, which were impervious to nr
rows or Innces. were iniiile from the
thick hide of the neck of the buffalo.
No pnrt of the valuable beast went to
waste with the Indian.
Kiiougli has been told to show that

tho practical extinction of the buffalo
was not due to the Indian, but to tho
white man. While tho Indian never
Killed more than was needed, the whlto
man slaughtered relentlessly. Then,
too, tho white hunter, when ho wns
a hunter nnd not merely a tenderfoot
cut on a sporting excursion, would
simply take the fur hide and leave tho
carcass to tho wolves. He was very
wasteful, and the "sportsman" who
spent a day, killing off perhaps htm-
ItUMNAJS'T OV A
dreds, would not touch the meat, al
though the knowing ones found the
buffalo ate.tk attperlor to that of tho
beef of comineno.
Tlm excitement of the old-time buf
falo hunt wns whetted by the danger
which It cntnlled, for, whilo tho lingo
nnlmnl of the plains wns, generally
apenklng, n peaceable beast, tho hnbita
of the bison were stich Hint to becorns
entangled In a herd was a perilous po
sltlou for both horse nnd rider. They
were easily frightened, nnd, like sheep,
lollownl their leaders blindly. This
fact also mndo tt illlllcttlt for tho old
bulls who nlwnyn grnzed at the bend
of the herd to stop ,i stntnpeile, when
once It occurred. The force behind
them would push them forwnrtl, nnd
many Instances nre known where the
iHulen, stumbling or pushed over a
cliff, would have the whole herd piled
up over them In n mangled mass. It

"However smart a man may be,
however deep a brain, there is yet a
tiact ot superstition In bis makeup,"
said a thoughtful man to a writer on
the New Orleans Times-Democrat,
"and often It exists and controls him In
various ways without bis knowing
anything about It If you should tell
him that he was superstitious he would
resent It nnd In no uncertain way. Out
all men are superstitious In some way

nbout wlilch men nre a bit cranky and
they develop Into well-rounded super

a queer little notion that If he gets up
Thursday morning without mouey In
his pocket it Is bnd luck and he be
lieves In It so tlrmly that he will not
venture out of the house and will not
turn his hand to a piece of work If It
happens to him.

that he has something left over
