A FAMOUS BUFFALO HUNT
Recollection! of the Chase limned
for Grand Duke Alexis.
HUNTING PAETY MEET IN OMAHA
JVoled Army Officers and Plalnamea
Kacort Royalty and Participate
la the "-sort and
The late Grand Duke Alexis of Russia,
uncle of Emperor Nicholas, whose funeral
took place In St. Petersburg lust week, was
the chief guest in what Is classed In plain's
history as the most imposing and distin
guished hunting party that ever chased
buffalo. Ornaha was the rendezvous of the
hunters, the grand duke arriving here
January 13, 1872, and was given a reception
at the residence of lion. Alvln Saunders. -
The origin of tfie hunt and the details of
It have been pieced together by James Al
bert Hadley from the records of Hie Kan
sas HisloVlcal society and reprinted in the
New York Evening Post The affair, as
shown by the records, , was arranged for
the benefit of Alexia, a brother of the then
emperor of 'Russia, who came here when
the country's appreciation of Russia's attl
tltude toward the United Stales during the
civil war was still keen and grateful. Alexis
was sent as the special ambassador to bear
his country's congratulations to President
Grant and the United States, and nothing
waa too good for him.
It was at a dinner at the White Houee
that General Phil Sheridan suggested to
the grand duke that he should go west to
get a real appreciation of the siie of the
country, and that while' on the way he
should participate In a buffalo hunt to see
what American sport really waa.
That Idea appealed to Alexis much more
than the thought of continuous entertain
ment in the eastern cities and the nightly
swapping of International compliments at
the banquet table, for he waa not only a
true sailor, but a sportsman and a great
horseman, and he loved adventure. Further
more he was only 22, and, doubtless, the
thought of going for big game in a new
country was as attractive to him as the
prospect of a jungle hunt In Africa Is to
the young men of today. To General Sheri
dan and General Custer was assigned the
honor of taking the nation's guest to the
General Custer, who Joined the party at
Omaha on January 12, 1872, was in command
of the field operations, and his following
included, beside the grand duke. Vice Ad
miral Posslet, commander of the Russian
fleet, then in American waters; count
Olsenfleff and Count Shouvaloff, and vari
ous other Russian nobles of the ducal re
tinue. Among the Americans were Generals
Sheridan, James W. Forsyth, and George
A. Forsyth, General Ord, commanding the
Department of the Platte; General Innls
N. Palmer, Colonel Michael V. Sheridan,
the general's brother, and the great scout,
Buffalo Bill. Kvery one of the Americans
waa an expert hunter and thoroughly knew
the short-grass country between the "Big
Muddy"' and the Rookies.
Two Troops aa Escort.
As an escort for the hunters there were
wo troops, B and K, ef the Second cav
alry, with the band of the reelment. and
there were almost as many servants and
valets In the retinue of the Russians as
there were troopers in the expedition.
Surely an elaborate outfit for a hunting
But yiere was ao much real roughing it
that the frills, the band, and the cham
pagne wagons could not take the edge off
the adventure for the grand duke.. -He and
his personal guards were ail fine horse
men, and kept to the saddle every day long
after the counts had taken to the ambu
lances. From Omaha a special train took the
hunters to North Platte, where they
mounted for the first day's ride, a fifty-
mile walk, trot, and gallop, to Camp
Alexis, which General Palmer had estab
lished for the occasion on Red Willow
creek. The camp outfit consisted of two
hospital tents. In which the meals were
served; ten wall tents, and a tent for
soldiers and servants. There was a stock
of 10.000 rations each of flour, sugar and
coffee, to say nothing of the delicacies and
the wine, and 1,000 pounds of tobacco te
give to the Indians.
The grand duke was Interested In the
Indians almost as much as he was In
the buffalo, so General Sheridan had a
tribe of Brules, under command of
Spotted Tall, moved bodily to Camp
Alexis, so that the guest might studyj
them at hie leisure.. There were fifty
warriors with all their squaws and chil
dren In this tribe.
First Herd Reported.
On the first night of camp General
Custer sent out scouts to look for buffalo.
The report of a herd within three miles
was brought, back before midnight, and
the duke turned In with as much Joyful
anticipation of the morning as a small
boy has on. the night before Christmas.
fie was up when the cavalry bugler
founded reveille, and found General Cus
ter down on the picket line, personally
Inspecting the horse that was to be rid
den by a Russian guest. Before break
fast was over the early morning scouts
came In with the report that the main
herd was between Red Willow and Medi
cine creeks, about fifteen miles from
camp, and the order to mount was given.
Before the start was made, however. Gen
eral Custer announced the following rules
for the chase: The first attack to be
made by Alexis, accompanied by Custer,
Buffalo BUI and two Brule Indiana; the
main party to remain in the background
until the grand duke had made hla first
"kill," after which the hunt was to open
to all. An experienced buffalo hunter was
assigned to ride beside each member of
the grand duke's suite, and to Instruct him
In the game of getting alongside and kill
ing a buffalo.
General Custer was instructor to Alexis,
and on the way out the latter asked thou
sands of questions and practised shooting
at many Imaginary buffalo. His hunting
costume consisted of heavy gray cloth,
trimmed with green, with buttons bearing
the Imperial coat-of-arms of Russia, and
an Australian turban.
His first experience was with an Immense
herd that covered several square miles.
The hunters approached against the wind
and halted in a shallow rsvine, within
three-qusrteTs of a mile of the nearest
bison, acting as sentinel. The ravine af
forded concealment for another half mile.
and then it was an open rush.
The grand duke, Custer and Cody, all
spurring their horses to the utmost, dashed
out of the ravine and went full tilt for the
herd. Alexis had selected a big bull for
lila victim, and, ao well had he been coached
before the hunt, that the animal was soon
seen to stumble, rise, ' stumble a-raln. and
fall the first buffalo, probably, ever killed
by a titled marksman.
Then the free-for-all chase began, and
there was a wild rush of counts and cow
boys, troopers and Indians after the stam
peded herd. Alexis stopped long enough to
cut oft the tall of his first victim as a
trophy, and then Joined the rest Four
buffalos were taken on that first day.
Luncheon waa served la the field and
sevral Indian warriors armed with bows
and arrows hung about begging for the
food scrspa that we're left. Alexia wanted
to know why the Indiana carried their ant-lent
weapons and was told thst they pre
ferred them to their flrenrma for killing
buffalo. As the grand duke seemed skep
tical, General Custer secretly sent out two
Ilrule bucks with orders to find a. buffalo,
run It into camp,' and there kill It In the
presence of the Russians with an arrow.
Within an hour the' Indians, whooping
and yelling, rjde back chasing a buffalo
cow. In spite of her eTTorts to escape she
was guided straight Into the camp, where
Two I.ance, one of the bucks, swiftly cir
cled to her left and With bow full drawn
drove his arrow Into the body behind the
shoulder. The animal fell, pierced through
the heart, and so delighted was the grand
duke with this exhibition of skill that he
gave he archer a 20 gold piece and then
paid ae much more for Two Lance's bow
and quiver of arrows, which he took to
Russia as souvenirs of the plains.
There was a great dinner In camp that
night and the stories of former hunts lost
nothing from the champagne which helped
In. the telling. . .. . , .
As Indian Sham Battle,
. After the feast the ' Indians . entertained
With a sham battle and then, there was a
war dance, and the day closed with a
powwow, at which General Sheridan, the
Grand Duke Alexis, Spotted Tall and all
the rest smoked the peace pipe. The duke
would not make a speech, although urged
to do so by the hosts, but he pleased the
Indians even more with gifts of sliver
coins, blankets and hunting knives.
That ended the burfalo hunt for which
formal arrangements had been made,, and
the party went on to Denver, where tl.e e
was some sightseeing among the m nes and
a grand ball was given in honor 'of. the
grand duke. C. M. Beeson, a famous buf
fulo hunter and Indian fighter, who hap
pened to be playing a fiddle that night in
the orchestra, told General Sheridan that a
large herd of buffalo had been reported In
the neighborhood of Kit Carson, 130 m lee
east of Denver The general told the grand
duke, who immediately became keen for
There were no mounts available ex ept
tbe troop horses of the cavalry In the Den
ver region, and these animals were not
used to bison hunting. The general ex
plained this, and added that an untrained
horse, when confronted by a roaring mass
of frightened buffalo, becomes frantic and
a very unsafe animal to be astride of. That
only made Alexis more determined to go
after the herd, so General Sheridan gave the
necessary orders and the second expedition
The herd was located without difficulty,
and the same tactics were employed aa be
fore, except that General Custer was the
grand duke's only Immediate companion
when the attack was made. The troop
horses were as unruly as had been antici
pated, and added mroe than their share to
the excitement of the chase.
Caster's Fine Horsemanship.
When the general and the grand duke
approached the thundering avalanche of the
herd, their mounta became unmanageable.
Bit and spur was useless, and finally, in a
frenzy of excitement, the horses ran away,
straight toward the herd, and to the hun
ters watching from the background it seem
ed as thought the son of the czar and an
America! general were about to be killed
in a stampede. But Custer's matchless
horsemanship saved them both. Abandon
ing useless attempts at force, the riders
lured their mounts away from the herd by
strategy. Little by little they were guided
out of the danger zone, and when once
away from close contact with the excited
bison the horses were induced to make a
wide circuit over the plains at the top of
their speed, and then, by means of whips
and spurs, the riders regained control.
In the meantime the herd ,had escaped,
but after a long chase the hunters again
got within killing distance, and the grand
duke brought down his second buffalo.
Once more the hunt was open for all hands,
and the green troop horses were ridden
hard toward the herd, with the Inevitable
results. One of the Incidents of the flight
that followed was the riding Into a prairie
dog town at full gallop. Scores of horses
stumbled, sending their riders over their
heads. In the meantime, everybody was
shooting at will and without much regard
for the mark. One horse was gazed by a
bullet. Another shot went through Colonel
Mike Sheridan's coat, and after the ex
citement was over Count Bodlsco sheepishly
confessed that he had fired it. There was
hardly a man who did not return to camp
with a cut or bruise of some sort, but the
real wonder of the day was that nobody
had been killed or seriously hurt.
That was the end the the grand duke's

ODD EXCUSES FOR DIVORCES

Divorces may be obtained with greater or
less ease, depending: on the locality, nature
or grievances, unanimity of opinion, prac
tice of the 'court and other circumstances
and conditions. The grounds for separation
are based on reasons and excuses of which
the latter are perhaps the more common.
After an excuse has been mentally housed
for a sufficient period It becomes a reason,
or, falling in that, it generates a reason on
the other side. Since the result is the
same, the variation Is not material.
In two cases recently dragged into pub
licity, strange as it may seem, the allega
tions were that the offending spouse was
too religious. It had hitherto been sup
posed there could not be too much of that
commodity to cement family structure, but
In two cases at least, If complaints are to
be believed, the devotional atmosphere be
came too heavy.
In the two cited, Tessle Brennan and
John Hancy are alleged to have devoted
too much attention to spiritual things,
which greatly grieved their matrimonial op
posite!. Tessle lives In 8t. Louis and John
in South Dakota, and so far as Is known
they have never met one another. They
are brought Into close proximity merely
because of their happening to be In the
same boat, as it were. There Is this dif
ference, however, that Tes e is complaining
because her husband made fun of her de
votions, while in the South Dakota case
John Is the defendant. John's wife has
obtained the separation she asks; Tessle
Is awaiting the court's decree.
Tessle or Mrs. Brennan, as she should
perhaps be called alleges the most surpris
ing conduct on the part of Clifton, her
husband. It seeme they had been married
only six months when he began to become
annoying. He would laugh at her when he
found her reading the Bible and would tell
her it was no better than a novel. At other
times he would accuse her of being hypo
critical and would mock her. She stood
this until one morning he snatched a
prsyer book from her hand Just as she was
dressed ready for church, and 'that capped
the climax. She left hlin.
There Is little to laugh at in the home
desecration of the Brennans and Clifton
shows as no hero according to the evi
dence. In the ense of the Hancy Imbroglio
there is a humorons side that cannot be
rvtrlooked. Mrs. Hancy asked for a dl

everlasting praying, shesald:
"I was the victim of two matchmaking
families." she told the court, "but It took
me only five weeks to get enough of my
It appears that John Hancy wore a long
face about the house whenever he hap
pened to be there, which was rather more
frequently than desirable. Whenever Mrs.
Hncy looked out of the window and re
marked that the sky was blue John In a
lugubrious tone would reply that all things
were vanity and that life was short. If
the devoted wife happened to mention mil
linery and the pre-ill ng shades John was
almost certain to moral'se on the sinfulness
of human ornament. On one point, how
ever, John Hancy was at least consistent,
he gave a thlid of lis Income to th
rhuith. That must be true, because Mrs
Hancy says it herself.
"He did give that much to the church."
she remarked tearfully, "but I had to suf

Mrs. Caroline' Jones when she testified in
a Boston court how her husband. Frank

regard to the ' support of his wife. Once
In a while no of tet er he would slip into
Mrs. Jones' room and pin a 13 bill on the

Just as she liked,' and when it waa gone
she could whistle until some more was
pinned on. In many ways it la the only
authenticated instat ce of real pin money.
One day Mrs. Jones grew bold and asked
her husband It he couldn't pin something
bigger to the cushion, or pin a Uttli
oftener. Do you suppose Jones gathered
her to his arms and explained that he wss
merely teasing her as they do on the stage
and to come around to the back yard and
ho would show her where he hod a whole
barrel of money hid out? By no means.
Jones simply threw a clothes wringer,
which grazed her coiffure. ;

allowance from her former husband. She

to be done she does it with a hatpin.
Mrs. Mattie Holmes, at Bellvllle, III ,
doesn't allege in her divorce proceedings
that John Holmes was stingy or that he
beat her she simply declares he "poked
fun at her." Malediction on his Jolly soul!
lie JuBt couldn't leave her alone. John had
a fund of humor for every day, a Joke for
every hour, a quip and a grin for every
minute; he teased and he tormented. It
was unbearable she declared.
Finally, one day, it became more than
she could stand, so she switched right out
of the house and stayed away for sixteen
years. This is no typographical error it
took Mrs. Holmes that long to decide she
wanted separation without any conditions.
She admitted In court that It Holmes had
made overtures ten years ago there might
have been a reconciliation. Indianapolis

7.87 inches) and it should be rammed witii
the back of shovels used In this work, and
given the exact form which the roadway
Is intended to have, without the necessity
of making later additions of concrete to
bring the surface to its proper proportions
The kurface of the concrete should be regu
lar, so that the layer of asphalt may hav
a uniform thickness. This foundation
should remain three to five dnys, accord
ing to the season, until it has acquired
sufficient hardness to support the rammlni
of the layer of asphalt. The surface of the
concrete having been well cleaned, is cov
ered with a thin coating of special material,
which Is laid on with a brush, upon which
the rubber-asphalt powder is slightly
sprinkled. Shortly after these preliminary
operations the uniform layer of rubber
asphalt powder Is spread t the thickness
of 3.6 to 4 centimeters (1 37 to 1.57 Inches),
which is compressed progrelvely by meins
of a rammer. This done, the surface may
be opened immediately to travel. It is said
that by this process the top-dressing of
asphalt, when laid on hot, may be one
half the thickness necessary when the as
phalt Is laid on cold.

Amiability Opened Many Doors.
A young man of my acquaintance, who
became a social favorite in New York and
Newport, owed Ids success to the absence
of self-assertion which happily distin
guished him. Brought up in a quiet family
In a small country town, he whs iRimrant
of many conventions of life In lurtte cltWis.
Nevertheless, his unfailing amiability and
natural charm made everyone like him.
When some complicated fivestlon of eti
quette was discussed In bis presence h-
would say. quietly: "O. I really don't
know anything about that. I am a coun
try boy, you must remember." Everyone
was willing to enlighten such an agreeablo
pupil, one who "never put on airs." Har
Is an ordeal which'all women
approach with dread, for
nothing compares to the pain
of child-birth. The thought
of the suffering in store for
ler robs the expectant mother
)f Dleasant anticipations.
