THE 8 OUX COUNTY -
BY THE , ,
JOURNAL PUBL SHOW COMPANY.
The Republican Knows Better.
The Republican accuses us of having
allowed Mr. Hull, or some one else, to
cast slurs upon the family of its proprie
tor. Wil they kindly note just one in
stance of the kind? His family is an es
timable one and if ever by word or
thought we have beeD guilty of wrong
ing them we humbly beg pardon. Our
readers know we have not and so does
the Judge, but he probably feels t the
guilt of having done bo hiigself and
wishes to saddle it upon some one else.
We have never seen a plainer case of
"how truth hurts," than the one display
ed by the Judge last week. After read
iug Weed Wrestlers article in the JoUR
NAI, his frame trembled and with a'look
akin to "blood on the moon," he pro
Celled to look up the editor of that' no
torious sheet, finding him at the Ranch
Supplv House, i With a mighty flourish
of "big I and little You" the Judge de
manded; "Patterson who is Weed Wrestler'"
The innocent and youthful editor
glanced up, and awed by the Judge's
mighty presence failed to immediately
'f: wnnt to know who that correspond
ent in vour paper who signs himself
Weed Wrestler, is?' he demunded again.
"And suppose I refuse to tell?"
"B-(J I'll make you telL My
record in akota is clear and the son of a
who says it is not is a dirty liar
and you'll have to tell. I'll know in
the morning I'll bet you: It's not the
one I thought it was,'' he added. "This
last letter was not written by the same
person the other one was."
"Then you do occasionnJly make a
mistake Judge?" the timid editor dared
to interpose. : ' . .
"Well " and taking another quarter
section out of his ten cent plug of J. T.
and with promises that the mighty jaws
of the law would close around tne Joitr-
Nal and its editor, unless, the original
name of the correspondent wasfliselosed,
the Judge and his wrath departed in
company of course, and now that chol
era morbus looking, electrotyped smile
of the Judge's shines forth as of yore.,
- The 011 Range Bull.
Ranging near Husk is an ancient bull
whose horns ore broken, tail half gone,
and one hind foot swollen and lame.
Years and years ago ; he roamed the
boundless prairies in youthful glee. He
was the idol of a bevy of bucksome and
thoughtless Short Horn heifers. He
turned his soulful ortis upon the belle of
the herd, and her gentle brisket heaved
in fond, strange, response. Now the
crunipie-horned Texas cow looks into his
bloodshot eye, and sees no love light il
luminating their leaden depths.
In years gone by his limbs were shape
ly, and his step was as light as the pro
verbial Indian maiden; but now, like her,
he cannot get his olf hind foot into a half
bushel measure. ; .
Jn the days of his youth his coat was
as glossy as the painted wing of the but
terfly ; now his scabby hide is an iuch
thick, and the hair thereon looks Jike
dead hunch grass on ah alkali flat.
Once lie led his herd beside the pleas
ant waters, and feasted on the green
paj-iures: how he lills his ancient anato
my on the refuse of Rcdington's livery
stable, i r . , - .
Poor old bnll! 1( His days are numlier-ed-
When the baltiiy zephyrs .of spring
kiss the velvety face of the first daisy,
Ins toes will lie tinned toward the azure
vault of heaven, and his once proud spir
it will l! roaming where no cro-eared
hull dog will ainputata his caudal ap
pendage. Long before the genial spring sun shall
have played the resurrectipn act with
vegetable nature to crowded Jiousesj the
brittle 1 nines of the old nlnge' bull will
have been polished by the ye low dog.
His mournful yet resonant . bellow will
not mingle as a grand diapason' in the
shrill anthem of next spring's frog pond
choir, for the excellent reason .that the
old range bull will be dead. Lusk Her

Th tunipamturo of wate for lionet is
not so much of an object as the purity
of it While it is best to liave tlie water
cool, it is more important to have it free
from all impurities.
Hares in foal should have exercise and
moderate work, and undtr no circum
stances should they be subjected to harsh
treatment, nor should they ever be al
lowed to go where tliey wonld be in dan
ger of being frightened.
The horse which can plow an acre
while another horse is plowing half an
acre, or that which can carry a load of
passengers ten miles while another is go
ing five, independent of all considera
tions of amusement, taste, or what is
called fancy, is absolutely worth twice
as much to the owner as the other.
Affection cannot be pounded in. Kind j
treatment insures the affection of an an
imal, while rough treatment is sure to
cause its hatred. .
It is alike dangerous to the life of
horse and man to spare the life of a
glandered horse. Glanders is a highly
contagious, incurable disease, and, as a
rule, fatal in the human subject.
When horses are suffering from the
bites of flies, or sting of other insects,
sponge the parts that cannot lie protect
ed by nets, with water, in which insect
powder has lieen mixed a table-spoon-full
to two gallons of water.
Of two colts similar in disposition and
sense, one may develop into a steady
and valuable family horse, while Hie
other may be vicious, treacherous and
unsafe all liecuuse of the difference in
the men hsndliiig them. Medical Class
