How the Cowbows Came to Ex
hibit the Circus Elephant.
Ever since sunset the prairie breeze
had fanned a fever-flushed Iittlo face.
Bolt upright in a hplint-bottomcd chair
by the bedside, a man had fallen asleep
again and again, in spite of his de
termination to remain awake. But,
notwithstanding his weariness, he had
slept lightly, and had often awakened
at the sound of a faint moan, or tho
touch of the night wind as it softly
stirred the erect and unruly wisps of
his mop of tangled hair, and often
seemed to him, half waking, lileo tho
soft, caressing touch of childish
fingers. Every time he woke with an
anxious start he aw that the fever
bright eyes of the sick child were fixed
longing upon the pictured handbill up
on tho wall, as it fluttered in thogcntlo
night wind. And. eai-h, time when tho
man bad cooled the parched lips with
water or patted the scanty pillow, the
child had piped:
"Tell momore'boul the ole elephant,
And the man had told again of tho

child would bo bent more eagerly up

wall, and, in spite of his loving anxi

most out, the eat grow gray, then

winged her way through tho misty
half darkness to a resting-place upon
tho topmost strand of the settler's
piece of barbed-wire fence, greeted tho
coming morning with her soft, solemn
If they had looked from the window
of tho shack," and tho gray of the
morning had turned a Iittlo moro to
gold, the settlor and the sick child
might havo seen a novel procession
passing along tho section-road, a quar
ter of a mile away. There wore queer,
canvas-wrapped vehicles and queerer
blanketed animals that looked btrange
enough in the coming light, but which,
denuded of thoir wrappings in tho
glare of the sunlight and on tho main
street of Range City, would blossom
out into tho moro or less gorgeous
chariots, cages and curiosities of a
This last crawling end of the proces
sion was dimly discerned by a little
squad of broad-hatted, jangle-spurred
horsemen, whoso galloping cayuso
ponies had carried them swiftly across
tho prairio in the direction in which
the circus was slowly taking its way.
Thar!" cried one of the cowboys,
as they reached the forks where tho
little-worn, by-road that passed tho
settler's cabin left the section-road.
Thar they air! Come on!"
The squad seemed on the point of
dashing along tho' section-road in tho
wake of tho circus. '
"Hold. on thar, .Scotty P cried the"

He completed the sentence by letting
his hand fall to the butt of the huge re
volver at his hip.
"That's what's the matter," growled
Scotty, full of wrath at tho innocent
granger, who ought to have known
that the cattle interests were the only
ones regarded on tho range, and havo
governed himself accordingly.
Tho turtle-dove flew from tho pieco
of a fence as tho squad came close, but
tho half-sleeping, half-delirious child
did not notice tho cessation of her
soothing, mournful coo. The orange
in tho eastern sky was climbing higher,
and the myriad forms of prairio-life
were wakening all about to greet the
Impatient at any delay, Scotty sug

of action, but this was rejected by old
"Yes, 'n' run yer head into somo
durned trap!" tho latter said, scorn
fully. "Kain't tell what these grangers
'11 do. Some uv 'cm air pizen!"
Then old SI ado crept forward to re
connoiter. The cayuscs were with
drawn to one side, almost out of rango
of the little window of the shack where
the night wind had drifted in, fanning
the sick child's feverish face. Soon a
shaggy head wsis lifted cautiously
above the window-sill, but when tho
sick child's eyes opened they rested on
the bill that fluttered gently upon tho
wall. Then, as the candle-flame, as if
wearied with its spluttering struggle,
expired, thechild tossed uneasily, pant
ing in feeble gaspj, and tho man in the
splint-bottomed chair awoke with an
anxious start. He did not sec tho old
cowboy's fhaggy pate, for it had been
quickly jerked below the silL
j The ole elephant likes little boys,
don't he, pappy?'' the child's voice
To tho anxious father tho weak
voice seemed weaker still, and it was
with a face gravely apprehensive, and
tones a-tremble, that he told of the
old elephant, in obedience to the pip
ing. "Tell me mora 'bout tho ole ele
Presently the sound of the granger's
voice had ceased, and after several
moments of silence old Sladc cautious
ly raised his head.
Upon tho opposite sido of the poor
bed tho granger was kneeling, with
his bearded face buried in tho quilt
beside the sick child, and his framo
shaking with soundless sobs, almost in
unison with the child's gasping.
Then, impatient and wondering at
old Slado's delay, the rest of tho cow
boys, with the exception of ono who
held tho cayuscs, hurried, and then
crept forward till they were all squat
ted toucnth tho window. At first
their hands wcro on the butts of their
huge revolvers, but as tho granger
spoko in trembling tones every hand
was withdrawn from its weapon.
Then, ono by one, they peered cau
"Prayin!" Scottv whispered softly
to his neighbor.
Then the child's feeble voico inter
rupted the prayer.
"Pappy." it moaned, half reproach
fully, "I never saw a ole elephant!"
"I'm afeard ho never will," old
Slade whispered, softly.
Perhaps nono of the eowbovs squat
ting beneath the window wore marvels
of acumen, but ns the prayer vehe
ment, almost agonizing went on,
they understood most of the story of
tho struggles of the despised granger.
The prayer ceased presently, but
the granger still knelt with his head
bowed, and tho cowboys heard somo
sounds that made Scotty whisper husk
ily to his neighbor:
Then the ono thought that was al
ways uppermost in tho lild's delir
ium asserted itself again.
Pappy," tho little voice piped,
gaspingly, "tell me more about the
ole elephant ! I never seed him ! "
The prayer began again, more fer
vently, despairingly than before.
O God ! " the granger prayed,
"spare him ! Let him liro to see the
ole elephant!" As ho went on the
prayer grew more rambling. "Let
him live ! Think of the pore little fel
ler; never seed tho ole elephant ! Fer
days ever since that bill was dropped
out thar he's looked an' longed fer
to-day. that he might see the ole
elephant An' now" He brake
down for an instant, and the men
squatting outside stirred uneasily.
"Never seed tho ole elephant!" the
prayer went on, half incoherently.

crowning misfortune. The talcs ho
had heard of their reckless disregard
for tho persons and property of
strangers were fully as Munchausen

ger's fears seemed realized as there
was a nervous rush upon tho part of
tho cowboys which hurried the ele
phant, driver and all out of tho pro
cession.' Perhaps if ho had beheld tho
bank-bill that found its way into tho
ready hand of the elephant-driver, ho
would not havo wondered at the slight
resistance of the hitter.
When ho had recovered from tho
astonishment into which ho had been
thrown by tho summary proceedings,
tho few words spoken, and tho bank
bills old Slado dropped as he hurried'
past, the old elephant was lumbering
rapidly away in tho midst of tho
frightened and flouncing cayuscs.
Tho turtle-dove flow from tho pieco
of a fenco as the elephant and his cap
tors hurried up to the shack. Tho
grass muffled the footfalls of the ani
mals. The granger was still on his knees,
with his face buried in tho quilt of tho
poor bed, and tho morning breeze
that fanned the sick child's faco and
fluttered tho pictured bill on tho wall
ruffled tho unruly tufts of his hair till
it felt like the touch of baby fingers.
Tho Iittlo face was less flushed now,
and tho gasping feebler. Tho child's
dim thoughts wandered still more, and
his dim oyes could hardly sec the flut
tering bill. " Pappy," tho weak voico
whispered, ' will the ole elephant ever
A great bulk barred tho sunlight

softly clasped the sick child's hand.
"Oh, pappy! pappy! Tho ole ele

Tho bowed head of tho granger was
raised. Tho child had started half
upright, and tho little hands were
clasping the caressing trunk of the old
Then, before the granger could give
expression to astonishment the cling

softly back to the pillow again.
And tho turtle-dove that had re

When tho elephant went away, tho
granger was kneeling besido his dead,
and on the pillow near tho still face
lay tho bank bill that had been given
to old Xero's driver, and besido it
wcro other bank-bills.
As tho little cavalcade journeyed
back towards the place where tho sec-tion-road
wound into tho Iluzzard

This is a very important subject, for
carelessness in the purchase of land is
a fruitful source of expensive litigatioa
and serious loi. A titlo to land may
be obtained by Government grant
judicial decree, inheritance, will, deed,
or by long-continued open, notorious,
peaceable and uninterrupted posses
sion under a claim of ownership. As
a title may pass by judicial decree or
may become involved or clouded with
out such decree, a purchaser who looks
no further than the registry of deeds
raay learn an expensive lesson- To all
appearances there, tho title xaay be
perfect; yet the town records may
show an attachment; tho court records
may show that a judgment against
the land has been rendered, while the
records of tho court of equity may
show that a conveyance has been
ordered to enforce a bond for a deed,
or to annul a'deed obtained by fraud or
mistakc.or the owner may have become

When any portion of the mechanism
fails to respond correctly, it is usually
from somo very trilling cause, and tho
first endeavor should bo to find out
exactly what is the matter. To bc
como a master in tho art of repairing
sewing machines, it is requisite to
understand tho principles upon which
the stitch is formed and tho work fed.
Very Iittlo manual skill is really
needed. Tho breaking of thread or
needles and tho skipping of stitches
are due. nine times out of ten, to the
loosening of some screw, allowing
some part to become slightly dis
placed. If your machine breaks the thread,
first examine the broken end to de
termine whether it in cut or torn.
Then measure tho end down from tho
take-up, and you will discover at what
point in tho revolution the trouble oc
curred. Turn tho wheel slowly, and
watch the thread pass around tho
shuttle at tho point where the accident
occurred. Many times a machine can

Diphtheria is an infectious disease
readily communicated by the sick or
by clothing from th sick room, and H
therefore hard to check when onco it
gets a hold. The State Hoard of
Health in its instructions on tho pre
vention of diphtheria says:
Tho persons who nurse tho sick
should be kept entirely away from
others, especially from children, and
to such care should lie added cleansing.
Tho sick mu?t be nursed in a clean and
airy room on a floor where there are
no other children. Every cloth and
cup and all clothing and bedding used
in the sick room must be clcaned and
disinfected before being handled or
used by other persons. Tho houe
itself must be disinfected as soon an
the sick recover or die. Cleanliness
and ventilation should be enforced
night and day.
Relative to cleansing and disinfec
tion tho board set forth: Open win
dows and ojen fireplace with tire in
them day and nigh protect the sick
and all who attend theca. The cloths
and dishes used by tho Ick should bo
put Into boiling hot water as soon as
removed, without being? taken to
another room. The soiled clothing
from the sick and the bed. that can bo
boiled, should bo thrown into a disin
fecting fluid made by di.oiving
four tablc-poonfuls of su'phate
of zmz "white vitnol and two
table-spoonfuN of common fait in a
gallon of boiling water, one-fourth
pound 'Of sulphate of zinc to two ounce
of table salt to the gallon. When the
time for washing cornea, thoroughly
boil the clothing, etc. before washing.
The woodwork, chairs aad stools of
the sick room should be washed with
the disinfecting fluid. The chamber
vessels and spit cups jused by the sick
should be drenched with this fluid be
fore they are removed from the room.
The grounds surroendin? the houe.
