years riding the range In the Interior.
- This particular bronco buster had
always enjoyed the reputation of per

every Job he ever bail tin 'Irst time
the boss "called him down."
.V cording to Cat's story this hue
oerOO wus assigned to the remount
division and was out on the field
with a bunch of men training anil
lerv horses when oiui of tho animals
broke und ran. He wus ordered to
bring the horse back. When he las
oed the animal ho handled It rather
roughly and the Sergeant In charge
"called him down" tartly informing
him he was handling Uncle Sam's
horses and not cayuses on the range,
At the barracks later a number of
bis bunkles were kidding him for
they had known him over in Harney.
When one of them asked him:
"Why don't you quit, Jack, after a
call down like tiiul?" he was greeted
with this reply from the recruit:
"1 would quit the blame Job, but
they're short handed here." -Ontario
