Heyday of "Puncher's" Life Betwixt
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
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
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.
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.
