from tho heavy breastplate of the ma

there. A shot struck tho pinto square

Franklin crossed tho Missouri river,
that dividing stream known to a gen

dary between tho old and tho now, tho
known nnd untried. When ho de
scended from tho rttdo train ho needed
no ono to toll him ho had como to

Bald tho fireman, who was oiling tho

amiably as ho spoke, "you're Buro at

Franklin had not advised his friend
Dattcrslelgh of his intended arrival,
but as he looked about fllm ho saw
that ho had little need for any guide.

glad to do so In case he had tho need,
and was about to turn away. He was

him with an explosive "Say:

looking about him at tho strango, new
country, In which ho felt tho proprie
torship of early discovery.
As Franklin was walking on, busy,
with tho impressions of his now world,
ho becamo conscious of rapid hoof
beats coming up behind him, nnd turn
ed to see a horseman careering across
tho open In his direction, with no ap
parent object In vlotv beyond that of
making all tho nolso possible to be
mado by tho freckled-faced cowboy
who had beon up nil night but still
had some vitality Vhlch needed venL
"Eeeeco-yow-heeceeo!" yclleof tho
cowboy, both spurring and reining his
supplo, cringing steed. "Eeeeeeo-ylp-yeoeeej"
Thus vociferating, ho rodo
straight at tho footman, with appar
ently tho deliberate wish to rldo him
down. Finding that he failed to create
d panic, ho pulled up with tho pony's
noBo almost over Franklin's shouldT.
"Hello, stranger," cried tho rldr,
cheerfully; "whero aro you goln', this
bright an' happy mornln'?"
Franklin mado no immediate reply,
and tho cowboy resumed.
"Havo a chaw?" he said affably, and
looked surprised when Franklin thank
ed him but did not accept
"Say," said tho cowboy, after a
time "Bay, I reckon I kin lick you."
"Do you think so?" said Franklin
calmly, pulling up his shoulders and
feeling no alarm.
"Shorely I do," said tho other; "I
reckon I kin lick you, or beat you
shootln', or throw you down."
"Friend," snld Franklin, "get down
off that horse, nnd I'll give you a little
wrestle to seo who rides. What's your
"Whoa!" snld the other. "Name's
Curly." Ho was on tho ground as he
said this last, and throwing the bridle
over the horso's neck. Tho animal
stood aB though anchored. Curly cast
his hat upon tho ground and trod upon
It in n sort of ecstasy of combat. He
rushed nt Franklin without argument
sundry exclamations of surprise.
Tho latter had not attended coun
try school for nothing. Stepping light
ly aside, ho caught hjs ready opponent
as ho passed, and, with one arm about
his nock, gave him a specimen of the
"hlplock" which sent him In the air
over his own shoulder. Tho cowboy
camo down much In a heap, but pres
ently sat up, his hair somewhat
rumpled and Bandy. He rubbed his
head' and mado sundry exclamations
of surprise. "Huh!" said Jie. "Well,
I'm d-; d! Now, how you s'pose that
happened. You kain't do that again,"
he said to Franklin, finally.
"Shouldn't wonder if I could," s.aid
"Look out fer mo I'm comln'J"
Thoy met more fairly this time, and
Franklin found that ho had an antag
onist of little skill in tho game of
wrestling, but of a surprising wiry,
bodily strength. Tlmo and again tho
cowboy writhed away from tho hold,
and camo back again with tho light of
battle In his oye. It was only after
several moments that ho succumbed,
this tlmo to tho Insidious "grapevine."
Ho fell ho sharply that Franklin had
difficulty In breaking ireo In order not
to fall upon him. The cowboy lay
prone for a moment, then got up and
dusted off his lint.
"Mount, friend," said he, throwing
tho bridle back over the horse's neck
without other word. "You done It
"I'll toll you what we'll do," said
Franklin, extendlng'hls hand. "We'll
Just both walk along together a way,
if you don't mind. I'll get mo n
borso pretty soon. You see, I'm a new
man here Just got In this morning,
and I haven't had tlmo to look around
much yet. I thought I'd go out and
meet my friend, and perhaps then we
could talk over such things together,"
"Shore," said Curly. "Why didn't
you tell me? Say, olo Batty, he's
crazy to ketch a whole lot o' hosses
out'n a band o' wild hosses down to
tho Beaver Creek. He always a-want-In
me to help him ketch them hosses."
"Batterslelgh Is fond of horses." said
Franklin, "and he's a rider, too."
"That's so," admitted Curly. "Ho
kin ride. You orter see him when he
gits his full outfit on, sword an' pistol
by his side, uh-huh!"
"He has a horse, then?"
"Has a hoss? Has a hoss has
what? Why o' courso he has a hoss.
Is there anybody that ain't got a
"Well, I haven't," said Franklin.
"You got this one," said Curly.
"How?" said Frank, puzzled.
"Why, you won him."
"Oh, pshaw!" said Franklin. "Non
sense! I wasn't wrestling for your
horso, only for a rldo. Besides, 1
didn't havo any horse put up against
yours. I couldn't loso anything."
"That's eo," snld Curly. "I hadn't
thought ot that. Say, you seem llko a
white sort o' feller. Toll you what I'll
JuBt do with you. I think a heap o my
saddle, an' long's you ain't got no

Ban Marcos this spring, why, ho got
killed night before last S'll Just talto
one o' his hossos, I reckon. I kin fix
It so'st you kin git his saddle, if you
tako a notion to It."
Franklin looked twlco to see if there
was affectation in this calm statement,
but was forced, with a certain horror,
to believe that hfs new ncqualntanco
spoke of this as a matter of fact, and
as nothing startling. Ho had made no
comment, when he was prevented from
doing bo by tho exclamation of tho
cowboy, who pointed out ahead.
"There's Batt'y's place," said he, "an
there's Batty himself. Git up, quick;
git up, an' rldo In like a gentleman.
ltB bad luck to walk."
Franklin laughed, and, taking tho
reins, swung himself Into tho saddlo
with the ease of tho cavalry mount,
though with the old-fashioned grasp at
tho cantle, with the ends of the reins
in his right hand.
"Well, that's a d d funny way
glttln on top of a hoss," said Curly.
"Are you 'frald tho saddle's goln to
git away; from you? Better bo 'frald
'bout the' hoss. Git up, Bronch!"
He slapped the horso on the hip
with his hat, and gavo the 'latter a
whirl In tho air with a shrill
"Whoooop-eeo!" which was all that re
mained needful "to set tho horso oft on
a series of wild, stiff-legged plunges
the "bucking" of which Franklin had
heard so much; a maneuver peculiar
to the half-wild Western horse3, and
one which is at the first experience a
desperately difficult ono for oven a
skilful horseman to overcome. It per
haps did not occur to Curly that he
was Inflicting any hardship upon tho
newcomer, and perhaps he did not
really anticipate what followed on tho
part either of tho horse or Its rider.
Had Franklin not been a jtcod rider,
and accustomed to keeping his head
while sitting half-broken mounts, ho
must have suffered almost Instantane
ous defeat In this sudden encounter.
The horso throw his head down far be
tween his fore legs at the start, and
then went angling and zigzagging
away over the hard ground In a Wild
career of humpbacked antics, which
Jarred Franklin to the marrow of his
bones. The air became sclntlllant and
luminously red. His head seemed
filled with loose liquid, his spine
turned Into a column of mere gela
tine. The thudding of tho .hoofs was
so rapid and so punishing to his
senses that for a moment he 'did not
realize where he actually was. Yet
with the sheer Instinct of horseman
ship ho clung to tho saddlo in some
fashion, until finally ho was fairly
forced to relax the muscular strain,
and so by accident fell Into tho secret
of tho seat loose, yielding, not tonso

MAKING A PUMPKIN PIE.
Here's a Description of How Grand
mother Did It.
.Does any one remember the rmp
kin pies which grandmother used to
make? Grandmother opened tho
pumpkin and took out its works and
peeled and sliced It and put it In tho
kettle, where it was boiled until It was
soft and mushy, but not too mushy.
Later sho pressed tho result through
the holes In a colander, and when sho
had dished out a portion for lmmedlato
use, sho was ready to begin tho
construction of the pumpkin pie. A
big and square iron bake sheet was
lined with Hour crust, which covered
tho bottom of tho pan and reached up
along tho four edges until tho pastry
could look ovor tho rim. Then Bho
put an egg and a sufficient amount of
sweet milk in among the pumpkin and
added a whole lot of black molasses
and a pinch of salt, nnd a big lot of
ginger, and a pinch and a halt or
grated nutmeg to the concoction, and
when these had been stirred In among
tho milk and tho pumpkin, the mass
of Ingredients was poured Into tho
bake pan and the pan was closed up
Inside of the oven to bo cremated,
while the children waited outside with
the water oozing from our mouths
until tho wonderful experiment war
And nobody except some. few of us
lucky old chaps ever tasted anything
like one of those pumpkin pies. It
was deep and spicy and sweet and
satisfying. It was more like a pump
kin pudding, so thick it was, and
wholly like unto ambrosia steeped in
nectar, so toothsome it waB; and
when we think of those great squares
of pumpkin pie which found their way
down our ravenous gullet, we wonder
how It Is that modern boys manage
to live at all without pumpkin pie.
