HEROIC RIDE OF A SCOUT. Gladness Copies W ith a better understanding' of the transient nature of tho many physical ills, which vanish before proper efforts — penile efforts— pleasant efforts— tightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge, that so miiny forms cf •iekncss are not due to any actual dis- «aae, but .simply to a constipated contf'- ttan of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs. promptly removes. That is why it is the only iMnedy with millionsof families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value pood health. Its beneficial Effects are due to the fact, that it is tho CM remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without clobilitat : Tig the onans on which it acts. It is therefore «U important, in order to get its bene- •euU effects, to note when you pnr- , that you have the genuine nrti- ' «le, which is manufactured by the Cal'i- fiornia Fig Syrup Co. only nncl sold by all reputable druggists. If in the enjoyment of good health, ;*nd the system is regular, laxatives or «ther remedies are then not needed. II sflicted with any actual disease, one m*f be commended to the most skillful ^physicians, but if in need of a laxative, «oe should have the best, and with the •well-informed everywhere, Syrup of tigH stands highest- and is most largely ••edandgives most general satisfaction, Savril th« Gurrlion »t Port Kearney from itn fndtnn Hor<|o.' .

There was but one ray of hone. At Fort J.ariijnie, -'M miles distant, there were troops. If they could be secured the Sioux might be vanquished. Pour messengers'were, sent, but their rider- less horses leturncd, showing that the men had been killed. John Phillips was requested by Col,' Cnrrington to carry the message tp Port Laramie. He refused a.ll o.Ters,' but going to Jfrs. Gammon, rendered a widow by the nms- sacre, lie proffered his services without reward upon condition only that-hcbe allowed to I'hooso his horse. lie. took a blooded animal belonging to Col. Carrington. With a few biscuits in bis pocket, he rode forth ir. the night, the thermometer registering over 20 degrees below zero. All night he rode and in a bunch of mesquite bushes he hid himself and horse during the day. Twice he was chased by Indians, but escaped both times, reaching a telc- gro.ph» office just as the Indians had Je- stroyed it, then, pushing o-n to Fort Lar-amic. There the soldiers were ignorant of the troubles the troops at Fort Kearney were enduring, and it being the night after Christmas when Phillips reached his destination a masked ball was in progress. As he entered a murmur of applause went through the crowded room. Icicles were hanging from his clothing, his beard and }iair were ma-t- ted with ice and snow, and t.he revelers thought he was the most realistic representative of Santa Claus ever seen. He soon undeceived them when he delivered his message. The scene of festivity became pue of mourning, for ronn.v had relations and friends among the slain. Then the faithful messenger fell unconscious and it was several hours before he revived. Troops were'at once sent to the doomed garrison, and just in time to save it. J\"o recognition of any kind was ever given Phillips—he asked none. The In- Icliuns ever afterward hated him and de stroyed his cattle. When, .he died his, widow, who was destitute, filed a claim for the value,of these cattle, and government appraisers forfhd that they were worth $2,200. But it was-learned that Phillips did not become an American citizen, until two years nfter the cattle were destroyed, and under the laws ho had no valid claim against the, United States, government. Now, through Col. James A. George, the matter has just been brought to the attention of congress, and in 'the case arc filed, theaffidavits of Col. (now Gen.) Carrington, Mrs. Carrington and Mrs. Phillips. These all speak in unmeasured terms of praise f<jr Phillips' heroism in undertaking the mission to Fort Laramic,—St. Louis Republic.

This Clicyir.ol, it. nppenj's. w:i.s found guilty of a inijior breach of discipline. On the African station oominaudinij officers ire not bound strictly by the 7 - c(,'ul:ition.s of the service. They have introduced punishments auc&riHinff to their own ideas. One of these is the "Mn/.eppa vide,'* nnd Cheymol was sentenced to it, An ui:shod stnllion was brought, into a ring-, as was the prisoner. They stripped the man nnd tied his hands. With a strap they fastened his bound bunds to the stnilion's tail. The sentence )vad "to be drag-pud threo tinies" round the ring. The colonel of the le- gic-n, who wiis present with his stall', gave the word :md t,he fierce horse was loosed. He immediately begun to lush ,out and plunge, but with whips t.hoy got him starl.cd.

French officer!! are not. .usually inhuman to their men, and the barbarous practices disclosed in the foreign legiion force the. conclusion that, the rough life on (he African,station has brutaliw'd them. If tho Cheyn'Ol episode were not vouched for by the semi-official notice which lia« already been til ken of it the story would seem almost incredible. Perhaps the worst part of it is that t.lie execution of the sentence should be looked upon rather as an entertainment. It is said that not only do the officers of the post attend these "Mazcp- pa. rides': as idle spectators, but that women, too, are often present. The spectacle i.s treated like a bull fight.

'Exciting Scnno Kow Heine Ennctod oo CtttUc nnuffcn In Dakotu'. All niong tiic western borders the ronnd-up campfircs burn brightly now. Far .in tiie west, .bounded only by the snow-capped Rockies, hundreds of mess wagons sulked cnmp for the /irsttime recently. The Jf issom-i river marks the eastern border of the great western r:inges. In Dakota alone at least 1,000 riders nrc now engaged in roumliug'-iip cattle and branding the calf crop. Twenty-live outfits have planned and laid out t-heir routes, and a.t least six weeks of continuous riding will be necessary to do the work. Fifty to sixty riders will follow e.ich wagon or outfit. The outfit consists o£ the mess-wagon, drawn by four or six horses, loaded down with provisions necessary to feed the crew; the bed-wagon, containing all the bedding and camp equipments; the horse wrangler, who takes charge of the bunch of horses to be used in the work, usually consisting of 200 to 300 horses. These horses are moved with the camp, and whenever a rider wants a fresh horse he throws a rope into the bunch and brings out his animal. Then follows the scene of "bucking'.'; and plunging, for often the broncho has to be "busted" before he can be used on the work. Cnmp is moved every day, or at least every Second day, from five to eight miles along the route. Every morning the line rider foreman leaves camrj with his crew of riders and takes a coiirso at right-angles with the route; every half mile or mile he starts a.couple of riders to ride parallel with the route, to throw in nil t-he cattle they find toward the route and cnnip. After five or six Jines are started out the foreman takes the balance of the riders and swings "around in front to drive a!l the bunches gathered toward camp, coming in for dinner. In the afternoon the same course is adopted in the opposite direction", and both sides of the camp arc worked. Th» cattle gathered nre all thrown into one bunch, which is known as the "cawy," and are moved along- with the camp. Calves are branded each day, nnd everyone is branded the same brand as its mother, no matter where or who the owner may be. This part of the work is dore with the greatest care, and every cowboy is faithful to this trust. Whenever -1.000 or 5,000 cattle are in the "cawy," and while, cattle are on their own range, the work of "cutting out" is carried on. In this the peculiar skill and ability of the cowboy isdrawn out, and only men of well-known cx- pertness with brands and cattle are der tailed to do this work. The cutting horse-must learn his part as well a« the rider; he must be agile to turnaboutas •quickly and.on Jess ground than any other, and tlodge the attacks of the wildest steer with as much oaseand g-ra-ceas the circus horse. The rider dashes into the "cawy" nnd separates the cattle of each particular brand belonging on the range they arc passing over. He.drives his atiimal to the outside of the bunch, and dashes back after another. On"the outside are a number of riders who drive these cattle off to the owner. "Each brand held in this way is 'driven back on its own ranch, for these range cattle become located. This is called working the cavvy, and the main bunch is pushed ah'cnd until everybody's cattle are cutout and the calves branded. In this state r.ot less than -100.000 head of cattle will be bandied by the present round-up. The country traversed will be upward of 25,000,000 acres, which constitutes the great South Dakota pasture or range country. Each wagon is assigned its particular ronte, and the entire country is thoroughly worked. The calf crop will be fully 25 per cent, larger than last year. The cattle industry has developed wonderfully during the past four or five years. Over S:,000,000 worth of cattle are shipped annually from this point. The interest taken in grading up stock cattle and purchasing grade stock in- creases'each year. The industry has paid a yearly profit of not less than 50 per cent, for the past five years, and t.he loss of the past year was less than 1 per cent.
