Like Saturday's gatno that of yesterday
Is not worthy of n very extended notice. The
playing of the visitors was almost devoid of
anything that approached the brilliant ,
while that of Omaha was far below their
standard. Both sides made costly errors ,
and the hits were scattered after a fashion
that did not call for much enthusiasm , al
though there were about twenty-live hun
dred people there ready to enthuse on the
slightest pretext. No scoring was done until
the third inning , when the Oniahas earned a
run on three singles , Wilson being the lucky
man to get homo. In the fourth they added
another on n hit nnd two bad passed balls.
In their half of this inning the visitors over
hauled the Omahogs and passed them by
Muskroy got his base on balls.Pettco made
n hit , and on Crooks' wild throw on Urlfllth's
hit , Maskcry crossed the plate. Mills then
lined out a safe ono and ran homo ahead of
McAlccr , who smashed the ball way out to
loft center for a homo run.
The Omahogs came right back at thorn ,
though , nnd tied the score. Wilson hit for n
cotiplo of cushions , Miller got his base on an
error by Forster and both scored on n second
error by the same unlucky Individual.
The Jiadgcrs could not help their position
) n their half , and in fact failed to score after
Tn the sixth the homo team piled up three
moro runs. O'Connoil was hit by the
pitcher , Coonoy made n two bagger , nnd
both ran homo on two successive passed
In the eighth , Moffott , who took Annis'
place in the fifth Inning on account / an In
jury sustained by the latter in making u
brilliant running catch , scored on Coonoy's
second handsome drive.
In the ninth the Poet hit n long fly to Me-
Aleer. who graciously muffed the same , and
and the Highlander went clear around to
third on his miserable throw in and scored
on u passed ball.

ivho espoused the lady's cause would
meet her outside. "After a hard corn-

of a duel between Fournier and Dupont
that lasted nineteen yearsi They agreed
by treaty to moot when within 100 miles
i each other , and they had some des
erate sword combats. One day Du
pont said : "Wo must end this quarrel. "
Ho wanted to gotmurriod , and proposed
pistols. Fournier , who was a crack
shot , said he was mad. They arranged
to moot in a wood , have two shots each ,
and fire from behind trees. Dupont

Lewiston Journal : When ono of the
early settlers of Gouldsboro , Mo. ,
bought his farm ho had to leave a $200
mortgage on it. Ho paid the interest
promptly for many years and raised a
urge family. One year , when the col-
octor of interest came around , ha found
the farmer's wife reeking the cradle in
ivhioh slept her twenty-second child.
The collector jokingly told the woman
if she would inuko up the even two
dozen , whenever that might occur , ho
would lift the mortgage and give them
an unlncumborod title to the placo.
The next year ho was on' hand promptly
to collect the interest duo , when lot in
the sixmo crndlo lay a line pair of twins ,
which made up the two dozen ; and of
course there was nothing to Uo but free
the proud parents from debt.

The fjono Herd.
MEEKER , Colo. , August 4 [ Special
toTHK Bun. ] Soventy-flvo miles north
west of this pliieo is the modtvondertul
cnttlo ranch in the world. Within a
space five miles in length and n half
lu width roam a hurd , upon whoso sides
Lho branding iron has never hcon
placed , and around whoso horns the
lariat lias never tightened. But a score
or even fewer of them hayo over even
soon n man or horse or other animal
than of their kind , and in truth their
kin , except at a distance of nearly six
teen hundred feet high above them.
The Indians call them " ' "
"p'chok-up , erred
rod buffalo , and yet if an Indian who
lias seen them should bo asked about it
lie would laugh and shako his head and
all the information obtainable would bo
"P'chok-up 'em rod ; no ketch 'cm. "
There are more than four hundred of
this herd , and yet no man owns them ;
nor is there a man , white or black , or
copper colored , who has over boon able
to possess a single hoof of these fat and
The cattle are in a prison , out of it
there is ono method of escape , but to
travel that road means death to the ad
venturous brute. There is no way to
got in except it bo by the use of a rope
a thousand feet in loifgth. As the In
dians say , "Heap bee 'em ; no ketch
"cm ; no come away. " On the two long
sides of the oblong space in which these
cattle roam rise precipitous , and even
concaved rocks for live and six hundred
feet , yawning black and unsurmount-
able. At either end hcothea and rushes
the Yamim or Bear river. For miles
above and for miles below it plunges
and stumbles on in its headlong haste
to reach the arms of its parent , the
scarcely less tumultuous , but deeper
The story of the way in which these
cattle came there is asstrriiigo as their
existence is curious.
Fifteen years ago when the govern
ment troopi wore pursuing the Mor
mon murderers of the innocent victims
of the Mountain Meadow mas
sacre , the Dauites , or aveng
ing angels of the Mormons ,
lied for their lives into what-was then
literally the wilderness. A few of those
who hud been the blindest followers of
Leo. the Mormon fiend incarnate and
whoso hands wore red with the blood
of women and children , found iu their
wanderings a pretty valley on a stream
which flows from the Wasatch range
into the Green river.
They stuck tboic stakes , built their
camp-lircs , and during the night their
sagacious leader had a vision which told
him there to stay. Thcy : could hardly
have chosen , in all .Utah , a moro tortile
or moro isolated spot. They callnd it
Ashley , and about them.have'sinco gath
ered moro of their facet , until where the
refugees posted thplr-picket of guards
on the lonely njghts oTjtho first summer
has grown a thriving Village.
Like the wonderful' flat top moun
tains of Colorado , this homo of the im
prisoned herd has no likeness in the
It recalls in its inaccessibility the
marvellous stories of the vivlley of ver
dure into which May no Raid's adven
tures only found their way by the assist
ance of the balloon.
It is MO miles from the Union Pacific
railroad , south , and 145 miles north of
the Ilio Grande Western. Until within
llvo years it has boon ibolated entirely ;
but now it is but thirty miles from the
Unita reservation , and furnishing sup
plies for the agency forms quite a busi
ness for the community.
It is u tenet of the Dnnitos that rob
bery or theft from a gentile is no crime.
So it was thought to bo only a cunning
trick when John Wycliifo , ono of the
Mormon settlers of the now town , and
his throe sons made tt night sortie On
Henry's Fork , in Wyoming , and carried
away three hundred head of cattle
ranging there. This was in 1870. The
owners of the cattle discovered the loss' '
of their stock a few clays after they
wore gone , and started in pursuit. The
WyclilTo's had their friends along the
trail and wore warned by signals of the
coming of the pursuing party. Accord
ingly they drove the cattle
tlo as fast as they could
travel on eastward , across Green River
and up along the Boar , with the inten
tion of reaching the Elk mountain
country in northwestern Colorado ,
where they would bo practically safe
from detection and their stock also
could secure the most succulent of food.
The thieves and the stolen hurd had
reached a mesli of inviting grass at sun
down ono day and halted to camp for
the night. A terrific storm : iroso. The
lightning flashed incessantly and the
thunder pealed and cracked with unin-
tormitUng fury. The four men des
perately hold the torror-stricken cattle
by riding about them constantly. Hut
the wild fearfulness of the furious storm
excited the brutes beyond measure.
They surged and ginned , every moment
growing less subject to control. All at
once , as if by ono mad impulse , they
A stampede of cattle by day is a sight
calculated to strike terror to any heart

in the pathway. A stampede by night
and during a furious thunder storm ,
with the lightning revealing the hugo
mass of frenzied brutes hurling itsoif
on like a living catapault , frantic with
fear and as restless as the storm itself ,
is ono of the grandest and most appall
ing of spectacles. All the mad might
of frenzied animal force is aroused ,
nnd , Bolf-dcstroying , aa well as destroy
ing all in their way , they rush on until

John Wyckliffonnd his sons mot their
fate amid the lightning's glare and the
thunder's roar. They endeavored to
head oil the stampeding herd. Instead
they and their horses were swept on
and driven , in their terror to escape the
charge of maddened animals ,
over the brink of the awful
prociplce which frowns up from the
waters of the Hoar. After thorn
plunged the whole fnght-crazod herd
and down to the bottom of the fcarfn
fall wont horses , riders , nnd horned
creatures. Out of this plunge of life to
what was seemingly certain death for
all , a few of the herd wore not killed.
Those which had gone ahead formed a
cushion of death. Maimed , ttunnod ,
but sttll invested with a ipai-k of life ,

ad 'cpon this the cattle have
propagated and thrived. To those who
look at tliom from the edge of the procl-
pico , they are small and nswild as

see the elfect , nnd have learned
to regard the appearance of a mnn ,
whether Indian or white us a menace
from which they Hoe , clambering over
rocks nnd through under brush in the
chase to a point of concealment. The
place where the thieves and their
horses and the herd foil is plainly
marked by a pyramid of bones which
rises to a height of twenty feet.
The ghastly reminders nnd relics of
the human and animal victims of the
terrible leap shine forth white nnd
glistening when the sun is high nnd
roaches that spot with its full glare.
The progeny of the surviving animals
from the fall ate fat and sleek though ,
and have their sunny beds , doer like ,
whore they Ho for warmth in the winter
and to thorn the monument of skeletons
is no source of disquietude. There is no
llorco mountain lion or moro danger

thing within this cow Garden of Kden.
And yet too , no man has been able to
roach or disturb them.
The Utcs have a tradition that savors
of a romance connected with this won
derful spot. It is , that a young buck ,
who was of Piah's renegade band be
come enamored of a young quarter
breed Sioux squaw , and bouuht to take
her to his tribe. The Utos have a vir
tue , if such it may bo called , of total
prohibition from" mingling with the
whites in marriage relation. Even
where there have been instances of
women of their tribe becoming too
familiar with white men they have in
variably leen visited by the suverust
punishment , the progeny destroyed
with the almost equal certainty of bill
ing the indiscreet squaw. So for Sc-no-
jaho and his Sioux bride they had no
welcome. Added to her throe-fourth
white blood was the still worse odium
that the only Indian blood in her veins
was Sioux , a tribe which the Utes hate
as they hate no white or other being. The
bucks drove and the
away. After weeks of outlawry , often
pursued and clinging to an existon'cc
of terror , the young buck and his
squaw determined that they would bee
tliis cattle valley which the Indians
call the "lower earth , * ' and try to find
access. Once there they could dwell iu
peace and would bo rich in possession
of hundreds of animals , the lle h of
which they could cat , while from the
skins they could make their clothes
and a tcopee. They tried u bcoro of
ways iu which to gain access. Descent
way death. Tlio rapidtt of the river
wore the only course. The buck pa
tiently made a dugout from a log and a
paddle from a limb. Twelve miles
above they launched the rude craft ,
themselves lashed to it. and went whirl
ing and shooting on downward. When
they merged from the dark walls into
the opening which they had hoped
would bo their Impregnable refuge , the
dugout was bottom up and already
splintered by Ilio contact with a thous
and jagged rocks , while it bore on the
resistless current two lifeless
and bruised bodies. This re
markable spot is where the
Blue mountain and Cross mountain ,
both well-known landmarks , for the
hunter , bavage and white , rear their
precipitous sides out from the Bear ,
river. Among the now living witnesses
of the accuracy of the statements made
by the Indians of the existence of the
cattle in this inaccessible valley is
Alexander Powell , moro familiarly
known as ' 'Coon , " who makes his head
quarters in Mcolcor. Powell is an in
telligent man , of a good Virginia fam
ily , but , like many others who drifted
west years ago , has lost both ambition
and desire to return homo , ilo has
spent ton years in earning a precarious
livelihood as a guide and trapper , and
has frequently visited this particular
The other most curious physical for
mation which has separated animal life
from the possible approach of man is
ono of the Flat Top mountains in Gar-
liold county , Colorado. This mountain
stands up like a gigantic cubo. On ono
side is perceptible the place where the
conncctinglink with its broadlovol sum
mit was centuries ago. Marks of a"hog-
bnek , " which once ran out and down to
the other mountains , can bo plainly
scon. From vantage points some miles
away Hold glasses will disclose on a
clear day moving animals on the great
mesa. Those who have scon them pro
nounce them as beyond doubt species of
the moose , bearing the flat , broad horns
and having all the shambling actions of
these animals , now unknown to the
game seekers of this section of the
United States. Whether some day an
adventurous balloonist will alight on
this table land of the Flat Top moun
tain nnd bring down ono of those cu
rious survivors of an otherwise extinct
species of game , or whether a daring
party with great ropes will descend into
the valley of the "lower earth" on the
Boar river and enjoy a steak from the
loin of ono of the lone herd , can only
bo surmised. As yet the foot of man
has pressed the grasses ot neither.

Greek , Sanskrit , Arabic and Persian.
Ho has bomo knowledge besides , of
Turkish nnd Russian.
Tlio author of "William Shakosponro ,
Portrayed by Himself , " ( Now York :
Worthington & Co. ) says in his first
chapter : "I shall show that in the very
plays in which that extraordinary gon-
tlcman. Mr. Ignatius Donnelly , has dis
covered a cipher showing that they
were written by Lord Biicon , the real
author , Shakespeare , reveals himself ,
his life , his character , as plainly ns any
author over revealed himself in ono of
his works. " His work which identifies
the poet with Prince Henry has as its
aim the refutation of the Donnelly
cipher , which is characterized as "vain
and pernicious babble. "
"In War Times at La Rose Blanche , "
by M. E. M. Davis , ( Boston : I ) . Lothrop
Company ) is a picture of life on a largo
southern plantation during the war ,
when all the men , and even the boys ,
were away in the service , and only the
mistress with the smaller children and
the house servants were loft behind.
The narrative is not an imaginary ono ;
the characters are real , and the main
incidents are related as they really
happened. The author's style is bright
and half humorous. The story is full
of pathetic touches , and the reader who
docs not feel his eyes moisten in some
parts of it must have a particularly
hard heart. The ten sketches which
