What C A. Totter Says.
Omaha, Neb., Aug. 31, 1895.-The
Howard Medicine Company. Gentle
men: I desire to say to all who feel the
strength of their manhood slowly slip
ping away, whose ambition is at Its
lowest ebb, whose mind is beclouded,
and the senses dulled, when you feel
dyspeptic, and lose your self-respect,
that your blood is out of order, and all
you need is some of Howard's Vegetone
Blood Powder to tone up your system
It will act almost instantly upon the
blood; you will feel the renewed life
and vieor coursing through your sys
tem; you will feel the old-time grip In
your hands; your mind will be as active
as ever; your friends will observe the
flag of health flying in your face, and
you will feel like a new being. I have
not felt so well for five years as I do
since taking one package of your Blood
Powder, and I feel as strong and active
as ever. I weigh 15 pounds more thsa
ever la my lire. The change la so
marked that it is the subject of com
ment when meeting my friends. I
recommend Howard's Vegetone Blood
Powder to be, a I believe, the greatest
blood-purifier on earth.

WILD HORSES IN AUSTRALIA.
The Methods Employed to Captor. Thea.
As a rule the herds number from ten
to twelve, made up of mares and one
stallion, says Chambers' Jiurnal. No
stallion will allow another etallion la
his herd, and stubborn fights frequently
occur between horses owing to this.
The lenten males, after being expelled.
toin herds exclusively of stallions. On
any herd being sighted by hunters, a
good Idea can generally be formed by
the experienced man as to which route
the animals will take In their way to
the rugged hills, for which they inva
riably make when disrupted. A scheme
is mapped out to cut them off, If possi
ble, and the party scatters, each to taka
up his allotted position. Of course,
while doing this, every advantage la
taken of the natural inequalltlee of the
ground, so as to escape observation.
When the alarm Is given, however, all
need for caution Is at an end, and each
hunter puts his steed to full gallop.
The stallion, the head of the herd,
boldly comes out to meet him and en
deavors to distract attention from the
In eome rare Instances he la lassoed
and captured at once, but he generally
manages to rejoin his wives, which by
this time have trooped Into single file,
with his favorite mare In the lead.
Should the herd be turned and get into
difficulties, the stallion takes up his po
sition in the van, and the great ob
ject is to cut him off from the rest.
Should this be accomplished, both he
and the mares become confused, and
the lassoers often manage to take two
or three per man. Instances have been
known where a horse has been thrown
to the ground by the hunter's giving a
violent Jerk to the animal's tall when
the horse was making an abrupt turn.
When this quarry Is brought down,
either by this method or the use of the
lasso, the rider jumps from his steed,
whips a "blinder" (a handkerchief Is
used when there Is nothing else pro
curable) over the prostrate horse's eyes
and straps up one of bis forelegs se
curely. If this is properly done the
animal may safely be left "until called
for," for no horse thus secured can
Should a man be so unlucky as to
capture a branded horse or a foal run
ning with a branded mare, he cannot
keep it, but all others become the prop
erty of the hunter, and after they un
dergo a rough-and-ready process of
breaking In, are sold at prices ranging
from 25s. to 25. The latter figure is,
however, seldom reached, unless In the
case of exceptionally fine stallions.
Great numbers of these horses die from
starvation In the winter time, but still
the herds show no signs of diminution.
A Fox's Fatal Leap.
Two months or more ago a Bioom-
fleld man brought Fred Dow, the Church
street groceryman, a young fox. It was
placed In a box In the store cellar un
til thoro'tghiy "wonted" thereafter be
ing allowed the run of that miscellaneously-filled
apartment, being fed
from the cracker barrels and meat
stalls above. It had come to be quite
at home, had grown big and fat and
was the pet of all who bad occasion to
go Into the cellar. The fox is nat
urally drowsy during the daytime, and,
although the door was always open by
day, It never had attempted to peer
out Into the big world that was only a
couple of bounds away. If It had cared
to do so by night the closed door pre
vented. Saturday had been a busy day
and the tired attendants forgot to close
the cellar door. Just when the fox dis
covered the oversight of course no one
knows, but It must have been before
the outside door to the apartment house
above the store was closed for the night
Early yesterday morning, while the de
livery wagons were being loaded, a
queer "swishing" noise was heard, and
before the boys had time to look up the
fox landed on the pavement among
them, Us breath being knocked too far
away ever to return. It appears that
the anln"l had emerged from the cel
lar, possibly been frightened by pass
ers, had gone into the hallway, up the
four flights of stairs and out upon the
roof. It must have spent Sunday up
there, end when It saw the boys below
