Cleveland Loader : It Is roundup V time In the \vcst again. Across the broad , spreading plains , along the sun- kissed valleys nnd on the grass-cover ed hills of the big cattle ranches on the sunset sldo of the Mississippi the cowboy is once more dragging his lariat and hallooing to his long-horned charges , Smoke from the chuck wag on and the branding Iron fire curls into the blue. The artist of the long- looped rope has conic again unto his own in every outfit camp. It is the heyday of the "puncher's" life , is this Indian summer Interval before the coming of the snows and cold winds. All summer long he has been a. com parative nonentity. Mayhap he has been "riding fence" keeping watch nnd ward on the miles and miles of barbed wire stands that mark off the ranch's areas and several divisions. Maybe he has been a member of the "scrow-lly" gang , or if nn adept In the business ho has perhaps spent the heat-scorched days in breaking bron chos in preparation for the start of the wagon. Or , worst of all , he has been just a common farmhand , helping to garner feed. At any late , his mldseason work had been comparatively dull , prosaic nnd devoid of nny excitement. In short , ho hnsn't been n cowboy nt all , but an ordinary man of all work about the ranch. He hasn't hnd n thrill since the Inst seml-nnnunl roundups of last spring , and the monotony has pall ed on him. But now It's different The first "norther" Into in September blew away nil danger of 'screw-flies" nnd snug n song of coming activity In the .enrs of the discontented puncher. The second north vlnd snw the stnrt of active prepnrntions. The puncher got down his highest heeled boots , laid In an extra rope or two , donned his hair- w covered legglns and took up his trail with the chuck wngon. Ho will con tinue with It until the entlro ranch Is "covered. " which will be well up to ward Christmas time. The weeks will be some of the busiest of his life. Sny , but It's grent , this roundup time. It represents nil that Is wild nnd active nnd picturesque In western life. It epitomizes the puncher's en- reor. It comes but twice n yonr once In the early spring and ngnln In the fall. It Is fraught with plenty of hard work , but your true cowboy nlwnys welcomes It. It is so varied , so full of experiences , so different from the work ho has been doing all summer. Whether In rk'lng ' ns n member of the grent circles thrown out for rounding In the cattle to the spot selected for the roundup , helping to hold the herd in Its conflnom-'nt until the day's work is over , roping , throwing or wielding the branding iron , ho finds plenty of spectacular work to do. The "outfit" In these undertakings consists of n chuck wagon , which Is driven , of course , by the cook ; the horse wrangler , who Is charged with the duty of keeping mounts In readi ness for the more active workers , nnd ten or fifteen cowboys. The first roundup of the series Is generally held nt the much headquarters nnd Is for the purpose of looking nfter cnttlo which hnvo formed the hnblt of browsIng - Ing In that particular vicinity On the morning of the start the members of the outfit mount their freshest horses to ride out from the starting point In different directions , their routes di verging llko the spokes of n wheel. When out nome three or four miles each man begins to ride at right angles to the course ho took outward , iianoolng the meanwhile with a vie * to frightening the cattle toward the central point. Soon the thousands of cattle are gradually undergoing the process of being pushed toward the central point. They are gradually pushed In and In until finally every cow and calf of the big circumference Is pushed Into a compact herd , In this Instance In the headquarters corral. With this preliminary , the actual wet IE of the roundup begins. One member of the outfit , who has established bin claim of priority with the rope , whips the stiffness out of his trustlost lariat , ties ono end to the saddle horn , swings the other Into a big loop and goes forth to conquer. His work Is swift nnd sure. Time nfter time ho swings the big hooso around his head nnd sends It hurtling around the neck or forefeet of some unbranded - od calf. The calf Jerked swiftly from its feet , the roper spurs his horse tea a swifter gait nnd soon hauls up at the branding lire , mme flftv vnrds dls- ! ' taut , with the : nlf In tow. There hulf n do/on cowboys fall on the strug gling form nnd hold It to earth , while the brainier soars Its side with his hot Iron. I While the bninder Is at work an other "puncher" is busy cutting the I I i company's mark In the calf's enrs. Once the entlro herd Is culled out , the day's work Is complete. The "outfit" breaks camp nnd journeys on to some other point of operation. I Most ranches during late years have laid out regular roundup sites. On these they have built corrals of plank , | with wings extending out In front to aid In shoving the roundup herd into the IncloBure. With the herd thus con fined , the work Is easy. The outfits are usually out for severnls weeks. Sometimes the roundup lasts over Into the second day. In such Instances the herd collected has to bo held to gether by a night watch , in which the "puncher" force works In relays of , say , one-third of the whole force each. By this arrangement each man finds n chance to sleep for n portion of the night , standing guard for the remain der. der.In In fnvornble weather this latter named work is tolerable. When it does not corns1 too regularly it is en joyable. With the herd all safely "bedded , " that is , settled down for the night , the puncher on guard casually throws his leg over his saddle horn , begins a steady backward and forward pace and unites his voice with that of his fellow guardsmen in "singing to the herd. " These songs , generally plaintive in melody , serve n twofold purpose. They soothe the uneasy spirits of the long-horned sleepers nnd nt the snme time give vent to the lone some feeling of the singer. FRANK GOULD CABLED "TEN. " It Meant Bessie Devoe Could Get Only $10,000 , in Her Suit. New York. Nov. 15. "Ten , " Frank J. Gould cabled laconically from Europe. It appeared that "ten" was $10,000 , the heart balm which Mr. Gould paid Miss Bessie Dovoe , the dancer , to end her suits against for alleged breach of promise of marriage. Miss Devoe had demanded $200,000 to solace her wounded affections. Incidentally , she > made public letters expressing her fervid affection which she said Mr. Gould had written to her. Her suits never cnmo to trial , and secret reasons why they did not were 1 revealed before Justice Finelito In the city court. Henry S. Wallensteln , a lawyer , sued Miss Devoe for $1,000 ns due him for legal services In her nc-1 tlon against Mr. Gould nnd in a suit she brought against n woman who , , Miss Bevoe alleged , slandered her re garding her action against Gould. Mr. Wallensteln , who had W. S. Armstrong for his lawyer , testified that : Miss Dovoe retained Julius Sllverman i to push her suits. Wnllenstein was a i clerk lu Mr. Sllvermnn's office. Silver- man died nnd Miss Devoe called up i his o111co and asked who would press i her suits now. Wallensteln said he ! would If she retained him , and she did. . Wallenstein swore further that ho > went to the Western Union building ; nnd saw a Mr. Taylor , who seemed to 1 be Frank Gould's manager , guide , phil osopher and friend. Mr. Taylor , Wnllenstein testified , said ho would try to Induce Mr. Gould 1 to make a compromise with Miss De- voo. After long negotiations It was i decided that Si5,000 would be paid to i Miss Devoe provided certain letters i she hnd were surrendered to Mr. Tay lor. Wallenstein asked Miss Dovoe ! for the missives ; she told him she had I hypothecated them with n wonmn , whoso name he did not mention , as 1 security for a loan of $250. Wallensteln testified further that he ! visited the lawyer who represented | this woman and discovered that the letters were In the Equitable snfo de posit vaults. Two thousand dollars was demanded to return them , but n compromise fixed the price of delivery at $1,400. Back to Mr. Taylor went Wnllen , stein and was Informed that Mr. Gould was In Europe. Mr. Taylor said ho . would cable the sum set by Mr. Scott to Mr. Gould. Next day Mr. Taylor In \ formed Wallonsteln that Mr. Gould's reply was "ten , " which was taken to mean that Mr. Gould would give Miss Dovoe not a cent more than $10.000. Julius Sllvorman's heirs alleged that after retaining him as her lawyer , Miss Devoo borrowed $1,000 from him , giv ing as security n line sapphire pen dant. The heirs sold the pendant at I auction for $350 about a fortnight ago. RIVAL FOR OBERAMMERGAU. The Protestants Laying Plans for a Passion Play. Berlin , Nov. 15.
