In theapring mottos the great cattle
drive to Kansas takes'place. Formerly,
before the war, Teias cattle were driven
to some point on - the Mississippi river
and shipped to Kentucky, -Tennessee,
Ohio, and other Eastern States; but
owing to the stringent laws 'passed by
these States, prohibiting the importa
tite. of Texas cattle because of the fever
they were supposed to bring, and the
turmoil consequent upon the outbreak
of the civil war, the cattle, compelled to
seek a market elsewhere, were driven
across the Red river ; and through the
Indian Territory_ta the - stations along
the Kansas Pacific and the Union Pa
cific. Railways. The first drive to Kau
-8113 took place in 1860, when 'twenty
five thousand b - eeve; were driven
through. During the war, - when the
men were to a great extent in the ranks
of the Confederaey, the drives were
small, and the cattle accumulated to an
immense number on the ranges.—Steers

the e::ormous weight of three thousand

- There is a peculjni fascination in this
wild life of the,po* boYs which tempts
many young men of culture and re
finement, reared iu the enjoyment_ of
every luxury in the East, but of adven
turous dispotitions, to come and live
with th - eie rude spirits on the frontier.
Often for thirty-six hours continuously
in the saddle, the hardships of their lot
are apparent. Cold black coffee, without
sugar, drunk whene7er the opportunity
offers, is the sole luxury of the cow-boy.
With a piece of bread in one hand and
some jerked beef in the other, he r will
ride around a stampeded herd, eating,as
he goes, and as happy as a king on his
throne. When night comes, provided
his ;cattle are quiet, he will tie his horse
to his leg, and, l 'covered with his hat,'
with a hummo ck of grass for his pillow,
will sleep peacefully on the broad
prairie and dream perchance of his
sweetheart far back iu country.'
Herhapa his dreams will be rudely dis
turbed b 3 the thunder of a thousand
hOofa. - as his cattle, beComing . frighten
ed, at some noise, have stampeded and
the grass fairly pops heiustli their clo
ven.feet. Then it is he does his tallest
riding, and; circling around his cows,
brings thoi3 back to where they started.
If wild bill beconies obstreperous and
unruly, a rider dashes; mist him, and
seizing his tail as . he l goes by. gives it a
twist around the born Of his saddle and I

applications of this discipline will'
generally reduce the stiffening in a l
bull's tail to a minimum and render him
as docile as a calf. An expert cow boy .
can rope, throw down, and tie up a
cow in jest one minute from the time
be rides up to her. Rut a man knows '
nothing of 'punching the heifers' who
has not been throrigli on the 'trail' to
Kansas. Going for dayi together with
out eating, never out of the saddle,
mounting a fresh horse as one is broken'
down, the limit of eneurance is reach
ed, and one who hadstood the test and
can boast of having 'busted the Indian
Nation square open,' attains respect in
the cow boy's eyes and is considered to
have taken his degree.,
In 1874 the largest 'drive to ;Kansas
ever recorded took , placey , when half a
million beeves were driven through.
The trail was beaten into a broad path 1
a mile wide and extending fifteen hun
dred miles in rength. For miles and
miles the string of !Owing bands stretch
eifalopg. while the' keen riders darted
hither and thi th er, keeping them well
on the trail. At night the voices'of the
men singing to their sleeping cattle,
could be heard all along the line, while
the long string of camp fires, throwing
their lurid glare against the black Vault
overhead, called back to minds of many
gray-bearded cow-boys the stormy
times when similar lines of light glim
inered along the Rappahannock and
pierced the murky gloom of sonic, Vir

compelled the white owners of.the stock
to cut them out in a separate flock, when
the Indians will gather around them and
run them off. ' Some years ago a party
of Indians came riding down on a herd
that teas resting on the banks of a small
creek, and demanded of the boss herds

give free rein' to their exhuberant
spirits, taking some quiet 'Kansas vil

laws at defiance and compelling the
authorities to acknowledge the soya-

common- for two bossds having charge
of ditiarente.herds to jump down from
their horses and proceed to. crack away
at each other until one has bitten the
dust. When a violent storm, accom
panied by thunder end lightning,
stampedes tho cattle, they will probably
get mixed up with two or three other
herds, and much - labor and confusion
results, and a conisiderable amount of
tall 'swearing and ifighting takes place
before they can bh separated and each

them to be up and gone in the twinkling,

the cattle in Texas die every winter not

the fires sweep over: the prairies, there
grows up in the spnng a short, green
grass. The cattle get on these "burns"
and thousands perish while trying to
derive a scanty ' subsistence from the
short green growth.
Cattle are like buffalo in their habits,
and wander from place to place in march
of. fresh pastures. They drift down

is the largest horse-raiser in the State.
The tide of emigration gradually
sweeps the cattle westward, following in
the trail of the buffalo and. the wild
game. Perhaps one of these days the
broad ranges of Texas, instead: of being
dotted with herds of grazing cattle
will be cut up into farms and planta

that she was badly disappointed iu his
