Those who arc strong- enough to resist the temptation of drinking- whisky and shooting' out the lights a't, dajice houses, invest, their money in cattle and evolve into "kings."

If wa(<'r is short on his domniti hf; cuts divert, n. slrcnni, nntl as the streams iu t:hc westiuui south a.re uniformly small it is fompnratively an oosy tusk. Craning cattle on the lands of others, nnd diverting the water, which belongs tn tho laud through which it flows, is^hn main cause of the feuds between the "barons." Sometimes the chuis of One, br.ron. attempt to stampede the intruding stock, and there is a fusillade between, the boys. As all arc good sboUs, the result is always more fatal tha.n a 'irreiicli duel. Another thing that ni stockmen have to contend against i the "rustler" nntl the "ladrone." "37nst )cr" signifies in cowboy parlance cattle thief, h.ud "ladrrjTjc" is the Span iMl for it. Cuttle thieves arc • yer they do not risk a general for the pursuing party is general!}- the larger—th'ii cowboys considering the pursuit of rustlers as a. holiday excursion, find volunteering in large numbers. The Mexican "rustlers" or "la- drons" operate individual \y —they rarely organize into gongs, and their operations are a.g-ulnst the rancher, mainly. \Yhile the ladrone is an, expert with tho lariat, and would tneet even u. cowboy on neutral ground, as it is bis natural weapon, he does not like the revolver practice. So ho prefers to act ihdi- vidunlly,and confines his depredations to the ranch—and while the rancher is asleep. The iadrone steals onlj' for homo consumption and the local market. He takes the hide off of tihe beef, which is used for shoes, and sells the meat in the neighboring- towns or mining camps. Sometimes the rancher gets fresh on the trail of the ladrone, and there is an interesting-race. Mexicans are good riders, and being expert with the reins can so direct the course of the horse as to elude even a swifter rider. Hut being armed with ,1, lariat the rancher does not care to come any nearer than pistol shot, as the Mexican's strategy is to make a sudden turn, throw the ;ariat over the head of his pursuer and drag him to death. Sometimes a ladronii is captured by a number of ranchers, and if r.ot dead when brought down by a shot he is token into the woods and hanged with bis own lariat. Owing to this heroic treatment la- drones ore not so numerous in southern Colorado as they were a-few" years ago. But the number of rustlers seems to be increasing nnd their depredations are more numerous. Each baron, king and rancher has his cattle bra-nd, designed according to his taste, or lack of it. The brand is recorded, and to counterfeit it is a felony. Ju the spring 1 or early summer there is a round up," or "rodeo, 1 ' the signification of "rodeo" being 1 "to gather.'" The cattle of each, owner are gathered so that the young- oilves m;iy be branded. In fact, three or four "round-ups" are necessary during the season; not only to braijcf the 'hew caJye.s, but to brand anew the cattle where brauds _ar« partly obliterated by the growth of huir. The animals arc caught with a lariat and thrown down and held firm while the branding iron is applied. Th-'j feet of the kicking ones arc tied.

They prey alike upon the small rancher and tins cattle'king. The "rustler" is frequently an ex-cowboy, and is very handy with a gun and lariat. The "ladrone" is a Mexican out- Jaw, who deals montf. in the towns of southern Colorado when he is not on the trail stealing cattle. Stolen cuttle are driven to some little hut secluded in the foothills, which has t.he appearance of an honest ranchman's faii-m, and there the cattle are rebranded— another bra-nd placed over the first, so as to defaxie it. The cattle are then driven into some other section and sold—or shipped, cast by cattle trains. When ft gang of "rustlers"—half a dozen or niore—have stampeded a "bunch" of cattle, the cowboys who are on guard give the alarm by firing- a few pistol shots at them, and a general pursuit follows. . But usually, the tlheft is mada at night, and so quietly that it is not known until morning, when the cattle nro missed bj their tracks. Then a designated number of cowboys take the. trail, each, carrying a small armory, and from 50 to 100 rounds of ammunition. If the "rustlers" are overtaken there i* lively time for awhHe; Imt as the human in f.hc expression of but it is amusing* to the cowboy. Thcru is n fe.is:. during l.he round-up which lasts several days, and in the. evenings there is n rout—a "stn-g-- dance" nnd several fights.

T. Montgomery at Manistifjue, Mich., recently marked the close of a strange life. lie was a pioneer resident of Kokomo, Ind., a veteran of the Mexican war, also ^serving through the late civil conflict, enlisting' in Company I, Twentieth Indiana volunteer infantry. At the close of the war Montgomery began the publication of the Kokomo Daily Herald, and tor years was associated with the late T. C.' Philips'iu the conduct of the Kokomo Tribune. In 1870 he went to Mishawaka, near South Bend, and published the Mishawaka, Enterprise. At the destruction of the Studebokcr wagon works by fire Montgomery was .at the scene of the conflagration, and it was thought perished in the flames, He was not seen afterwards, and the family, thinking him dead, returned to Kokomo. Six years later Will Montgomery, the oldest of the children, a printer by trade, found his father at La. Grange, 0-, a village near Klyria, where he had married an estimable woman and was serving a.s iniiyor of the town under the jiame of '"Maj. Wright S. Clarke." by which name he was known the remainder of his life. Locking the secret in his heart, J'ouug Montgomery, who did not make himselH known to his father, returned to Kokomo. About that time Mrs. Montgomery died. For years she had kept a light in her window looking for the return of the wandering husband should he be alive. At last lingering hope was !ost, and she died in the firm belief that he liad preceded her to the life beyond the grave. The son knew better, but he refused to divulge the secret. "Maj. Clarke" was not'molested. Ten years' 'later Will Montgomery saw his father, "Jfaj. Clarke,'' again, With a_ theatrical troupe the young- man stopped at iianistique, Mich., a lumbering town in the northern peninsula. Here "Clarke" was the editor of the Mr-.r.istirjuc Pioneer. This time Montgomery made himself known, going icto the. oQU'Q and yil-rotTucing himself to "Maj. Clarke" as his son. The elder Montgomery acknowledged his identity, but the secret-went no f.ir- tlier. Young-Montgomery remained at Munisliquc and obtained control of the Manisticiuc Sun, which he conducted for several years in opposition to lii.s father. The papers were opposed politically and in'every oUicr way, A more fierce newspaper war was never conducted than that of the Pioneer and Si:n. the feet that t hey were, owned by father and ?on being known only to themselves. Five years hi.t.cr (he son wer.t to Tk'publie. a copper mining; •town, where he published a paper. Four years ago young Montgomery was burned to death r.t Republic.

D., arc almost regretting: the discovery ot what they consider almost positive evidence establishing the identity of a thief at whose lianas the merchants of Kimball have bcc-n suffering for the past two years. 'Tliu robber, they believe, wn.s Thomas Delnney. of .Kimball, an old mid one oi: the most highls esteemed residents of ' the place, who recently died in Sioux Ciiy, while on lii.s way to Hot Springs for his health, which was vapidly, failing. Many mouths before Kdward Erenne. the proprietor of a general store at Kimbal'!, had complained to the police of the disappearance of jewelry and clothing-from bis place of business.-. Kvery effort was made to stop J.he thefts ami discover tho thief, but without success. The goods con- .tiuued to go, and the guilty party remained af liberty. When lielanoy left Kimball for Hot Springs he grew rapidly worse on the train and at Sioux City had to be removed t.o the hospital, where he died. Wlvn his valise was opened several articles which were described by Brenne n.s having been stolen from his store were discovered. The Kimball authorities were notified find a search made of Delcney's effects there, with the result that quantities of the missing goods were found among (hem. Delfiney's friends are greatly pained at the discovery, and many refuse oven yet to believe that n man with so long a record for honesty cotikl have been ..guilty of the crimes charged against him. ^\\\\VSS^\>N\w>\N>w^ • v • ^» xv «' ' CASTOR I A for Infants and Children, M OTHERS, Do You KNOW * Caleman'tt Drops, Godfrey's Cordial, many scwalkd Soothing Syrup", an* mart remedies for children arc composed of opium or morphine?
