' THE EVENING HERALD, KLAMATH FALLS, OREGON
(By Badger Clark)
The horseback men were the bravest men
Since the days of the great ice pack5
When the first man crawled from his musty den,
And followed a horse's track.
The cave man crouched in the dark and died,
But his son found out that the world is wide,
When he straddled a horse's back.
H(Hseback men, horseback men,
How-legged brave old crew;
Here's to your kin
Where the free stare spin,
Cow-puncher, Cossack and Uedouin
G audio, Mongol and Sioux.
The bold Goth spurred into ancient Komc,
Great Ghengis loped with his force;
The Westerner conquered his wide, new home,
Astride of a bronc, of course.
New land, new freedom or just the deuce
Wherever the spirit of Man broke loose,
He went and straddled a horse.
Horseback men, horseback men,
The weak hide under their roofs,
Cut only the strong to your tribe belong,
So history is mostly a horseback song,
And set to the thud of your hoofs.
But the sword gives way to the monkey-wrench,
And the saddle fades from the scene;
While the warrior squats in a miry trench
Or chai-ges by gasoline.
And Old Time, quitting his old horse jog,
Hurls us onward into the fog,
On the wings of a fast machine.
Horseback men, horseback men,
Your long day dims at last
But your fame will rise
As a myth sublime
From the horsetracks
Thick on the trail of Time,
And the echoes of hoofs from the Past.

"Despite the Increased number of

the smaller number of passengers
riding during the earlier months.
Several -faro decreases brought tho
average rate of fare of these com
panies down from T.ltfe in 1921 to
7.12c in 1922. Fares federally are
remaining practlrally stationary. j
"Increased efficiency of operation I
Is roflected clearly In operating ex
penses, whlrh havo been cut down

of one-man cars, automatic sub-sta- i
