about thirty feet each. One hundred
and twenty-five volts of electricity aro
turned on, enough to make a sharp,
stinging sensation, without leaving a
mark or bruise on the beef. The work
of punching Is done in one-half the
time and with half the exertion. The
effect 'of the magic touch on tho steer
is amusing to see.
A steer touched on the left hip imme
diately throws his hind quarters as-far
as he can to the right. Then he cocks
one ear straight ahead and one straight
back, switches his tall and starts
straight ahead. Ho don't care for a
second attack. The electricity speaks
to him In a language he doesn't un
derstand. There Is a look of surprise
In his eyes, and he seems to know that
all the trouble lies in the end of tlmt
stick. He doesn't stop to get mad or
howl. He has urgent business at the
other end of the pen. That Is exactly
where the drivers and knockers want
him. The now method completely does
away with all back rushes und drag
ging In with chains, for just as long
as the puncher Is behind the steer Is
just as far as he can get in front. The
saving of time and bruised meat ure
also Items to be considered.
A Rare Sport Which Is (it Its Best
in September.
From Country Llfo hi America.
Shooting in tho greenwood Is more
or less difficult because of the foliage,
but along the seacoast and on the .open
marshes sport Is at its best. Septem
ber brings the great lllght of wander
ers, the yellow-legs and plover and
their sniuller cousins, the sand-pipers.
Yesterday the marshes stretched Hat
and 'brown, a desolate waste over
which a fish crow croaked dismally
and a nlght-herron labored with heavy
wlng This morning ns you set your
decoys and established yourself com
fortably in your snug blind an hour
before sunrise, out of tho dusk north
and eust nnd west conies the clear
piercing whistle of yellow-less nnd
tho long-drawn, plaintive call of the
black-breasted plover. Above the
white sand dunes rises tho rod rim of
the sun. Reforo Its broad bhafls the
hosts of the night flee to tho distant
hills. The browns and greens of the
mnrshes assert themselves. IlnrkS
Those whistlers are In tho creek-bed a
mile away. You tnko out your little
tin call and reply. Presently you know
that the birds are n-wlng. Call for
call they answer. You can sec them
now, a uossen specus against tne sicy
liiiG far Hi) thd niai'sh. Nearer thov
come and louder nnd clearer becomes
the whistling. In xplendld lllght, they
nro passing. Now for your art as a
caller! Carefully tho little tin whistle
talks for you. The birds reply. A
few coaxing notes bring doubtful In
iuliles. Then the birds see the decoys
and swing to them sharply. Now must
tho little tin whlstlo tulk to them un
ceablngly. What does It say'.' Only
the birds know. All tho air. Is filled
with their whistling as they wheel
over the decoys. Now the long legs
drop and tho equally long wings meet
above their heads as they alight among
tho decoys. It Is the moment you have
waited for, The good gun speaks, and
speaks again. Then as sounding the
alarm, tho burvlvors tuko wing, tho
seductive traltomus little tin whistle
begins again, Tho birds hesitate, clr
cl, then back they come.
So tho day passes. Now It la a (lock
or mnyhay a single bird, n yellow
legs, 11 curlew, a black-breasted plover
or beetle-head. A sudden bliowcr
sweeps across the maishes, and as tho
Min 'breaks out nsjuln, behold each
blado of grass tipped with u diamond,
On one side low sand dunes shut out
tho sea. On the other sldo In tho far
distant circle tho highlands. Between
Is tho level stretch of brown marshes
broken by stilled stack of null hay
nnd rut by winding ciecks. Theso aro
tho environments of 11 sport with
which comparatively few shooters are
acquainted, the sport of marsh bltd
shooting. And It Is ut its best In this
llrst month of the full.
