'V T LANGUAGE OF LEGS. whom he has to deal.”—New York Jour nal. WHAT THE VARIOUS POSTURES AS SUMED IN PUBLIC INDICATE. A few days ago, while hunting antelope on the divide between Horse and Adobe creeks, I came in sight of a band of wolves, thirty or more, which were closely herd ing about 200 head of range cattle. My curiosity to learn their object induced me to remain a couple of days in seeing dis tance to observe their actions. When my attention was first drawn to the wolves they were together in the rear of the cat tle, but very soon they separated and sur rounded the gradually outspreading herd and chased the animals together. They would then await the notions of an ap parent leader, who would run into the bunch, cut out a calf, when the rest would rush to him, help throw and hastily tear out its entrails. Thus mangled they would leave it, separate, and run swiftly to surround the now fleeing cattle, again round them up, single out another calf, throw and leave it in a dying condition. If any of the older animals hung back and showed fight they would be instantly ham stringed and left thus disabled. In no instance did the wolves seem dis posed to further mutilate these old ani mals. This maneuvering was repeated time and again, until the wolves must have satiated their taste for blood. Then these varmints seemed to be inspired by the teaching of the author, “Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast,” for they would raise a hideous howl, which effect on the cattle was not satisfactory, for they would trail out and try to get away, when they would again be chased close together and held to await further action. How large this bunch was when the wolves first gathered them together I have no means of knowing, but am satis fied that the wolves and cattle will be in separable until the calves are all killed. Then I think they will gather another and again another bunch and kill all the young. I counted in two days eleven calves, some yet alive, with their entrails protruding from their sides, besides seven large and older ones with their hind legs rendered useless.—Ell<rt (Colo.) Tribune.

Only that any ob server can tell what leg a man will cross by the way he wears his clothing.” “You don’t mean to say. that you know from the appearance of a person how they cross their feet ?” I inquired. “Yes. that’s it. You don’t believe it 4 Well, co.nc with me. We’ll take a short yide on a street car, and I’ll prove my as sertion to l»e true.” A few moments later saw me aboard a car, the sole occupant being a German woman with a basket. “She don’t count?” I suggested, inquir ingly. “Oh, yes. You can tell women just as well as men. She will put the left foot over the right.” Almost before he hail finished, as if to prove the truth of his statement, the left broad shoe was slowly put over the right. ANALYZING A SUBJECT. • “There’s a subject for us,” he con tinued, as a thin young num with an im mense walking cane entered the door. “Ixxik how neatly his coat fits; see how his silk hat shines: observe his polished boots. You will notice the height of his collar and his spotless linen. All right now. That man will pull his pantaloons gently at the knee, and then with care cross the right leg over the left.” It was getting rather interesting, and it was with delight I welcomed another pas senger. He was fair and fat, but more than forty. His ruddy, over hanging cheeks rivaled his scanty locks in the fashionable tint, “town red.” His weight was something remarkable, judged from the space ho occupied, but, despite this fact, he dropped but one fare in the box. “A cherub, eh?” said the physiognomist. “Now, that man is lazy. See how limp his collar is, and how unclean his cuffs. Even the age of slobbering is not past, which is responsible for those marks on his coat. Now, one glance is sufficient to show that he will use great work to get the left leg over the right See him? It’s a difficult task, but he imagines that it is as nicely crossed as any man’s can be. “You will find the majority of people are not over neat al»ont their appearance. While they may bo cleanly enough, they haven’t much pride in the fit of their clothing; consequently, most people give the preference to the left foot. It is even noticeable by the hands. See our fat man; see how snugly be crosses the right hand with the left. It’s the most inter esting study one can have, the study of human nature. I practice at it contin ually, I have taught myself to read peo ple’s thoughts.” THE STUDENT CONTINUES. m Oregonian R. R. Co. limited [¡ne, Herders. A Wyoming Cloudburst. Of all the phenomena of the country the aerial are the most curious and uncertain. Your first impression of a great sand la^l “draw” is that it is the result of years* gradual washing, but the interruption of an old trail hundreds of yards from its head soon ends the beautiful theory, and a companion will show you a yawning gulch formed at the beek of a single cloudburst, whose discharge will fill the “draw” half full in an instant and raise a rivulet to which it is tributary twenty feet in as many minutes.
