Hay seems to Ueve been little known
In the middle n**es. Stock was win
tered mostly on straw and leaves. Tus-
ser, who wrote in the reign of Queen
Elizabeth, gives much advice to the
farmer as to the cutting and storing of
green branches, which might serve as
fodder when pasture failed, lie is par
ticular as to the desirability of saving
the beech cuttings for the milk cow’s,
w’liereas for sheep anything would do.

Nothing troubled him so much
as to have a difliculty with any one.
On the day of his departure one of his
friends said to him:
“ it seems to me, Mac. that you will
be out of your element iu a couutry
where there is no law except gun law.”
“ Oh. 1 won’t be troubled.” was the
reply. “ I ’ll not offend any one, and If
any oue offends me and 1 have to tight
I ’ll try to arrange for u substitute of
fists Instead of guns.”
“ You’ll not be likely to effect such an
arrangement: you're too strong. Those
fellows won’t care to tackle you iu a
trial of muscle.”
When MacDonnell reached Ills new
home he astonished the inhabitants of
the country by going about without the
customary enormous revolver slung to
his side. lie was warned by friends
that such a course w’as unsafe. True,

The only trouble he had was with a
neighboring ranchman named Haw-
kins, who insisted on claiming Mac-
PonnoH’s sheep. For a time, when
ever there was a question of owner
ship between them. Mac would give in.
This encouraged Ilnw’ klns to increase
his demands, and it finally became ap
parent that if Mac did not call a halt
nil his sheep would in time be trans
ferred to Hawkins’ ranch.
One morning Hawkins rode up to
MncDonnell’s ranch house, called him

Mac waited till lie had finished and
was about to ride away. Then he said

will give me such satisfaction as may

“That kind o’ fightin’ may do for a
milksop like you, but* it isn’t the kind
we’re used to in this country. When
we fight out out here we fight to kill.”
With that he rode away.
MncDonnell did not take this attack
kindly. Several of his employees, in
cluding one of his herders, witnessed
the torrent of abuse heaped upon him,
and it galled him to live under the
obloquy of having taken it without a
fight. Besides, lie knew that such a
public insult would be spread abroad,
and he feared that the community
would consider him a coward. Finally
he made up his mind that he must fol

day after the insult the 42 caliber re

of starting the motor is to jack up one
