to the capacity of the pupil. The
teamster should drive with the team
to the right. When ho cries ' Gee" the
team should go from him ; ' Haw'should
bring them toward him. The consequence
quence is that whenever a piece of
rough or difficult road is encoun
tered the shouts and cries of 'geeing'
and 'hawing' and the cracking of
whips are most terrific. ( Ed. The
regulation ox gad does not seem to
have been adopted. )
' ' "I saw a most curious little animal
* called a prairie dog. It is as much
like a squirrel as a dog. It very
much resembles a fat puppy of a light
fawn color. It burrows in the ground
like a rabbit and usully shares its
habitation with a rattlesnake and an
owl. I have seen owls pop out of
sight into dog-holes but I have never
seen them together.
A Buffalo Hunt.
_ "Oiie day the boys raised a cry of
' Buffalo ahead , ' and away scampered
men and dogs in pursuit. ' Ah , ' said
Elder Miller'let them go , they'll get
tired without killing one , I'll "be
bound. ' The buffalo did not seem in
clined to retreat until they caught the
1 k. , scent of the men , and the dogs were
close at their heels. They then
started off at a pace that surprised me
and in a manner closely resembling
the gallop of a hog. The chase did
not continue very long until the boys
found that for speed and wind they
were no match for the buffalo al
though so clumsy looking. They
therefore scattered themselves and
.urging on the dogs succeeded at last
in scattering the game. But they
were green hunters and bad judges of
distance. A very red-headed Wolch-
mau was the first to fire , but instead
of bringing down the game ho only
made him roll away the faster. At
/ last Elder Cooley got his ambition up
a nd taking his Jiorso from the sheep
driver , and borrowing Elder Miller's
flint-look pistols joined in the chase.
Although the buffalo had been chased
for some time they had not succeeded
l" } ' in getting much further off than at
first , as the river was on ono side ,
the camp on the other , and the hun.-
tors at all points. Elder Miller's horse
/ carried him well , and I saw him over
take ono animal , ride round him once
o/r twice , then extend his arm with
the evident intention of firing , but
there was no smoke and no report
consequently death did not result.
Elder Cooley had in his hurry oithei
shaken the powder out of the pan , 61
lip had started without any. Later in
the evening one of the boys came in
and reported that ho had killed a
buffalo , but so far off that it was use-
logs to think of going to it. I would
have brought in its tongue as evidence
if I had shot one , which , however , I
: iad no ambition to do. ( Ed. This
goes to prove that even "saints" are
no more voracious than ordinary sports
men ) .
"While I was at Winter Quarters a
man named Furze asked me to call
upon his friends in London and tell
them that he was well and on nis way
to California. Today I passed his
grave which had a board at the head
stating that ho had been killed by
Indians while on guard. ' '
