numerous hard saloons in his place the
other night, Jake mounted a chair and ,
, commanded silence. The games and
the drinking came to nil end, aud about
i twenty men, young and old, looked
| up. One fellow undertook to edge out,
v but Juke stopped hitu.

' ' When you get *..» hell you’ll have chances
' enough to come h sneak on somebody,
v but you can’t do it here." Then straight
1 i citing himself up, he yelled in n voiei
I that made things creak:

oughly branded steer when you soo one, i
and you can tell whose it is and where it
> 1 belongs. There's a man that owns it.
! Tilde's a place for it to go. There's a
law to protect it. llut the Maverick—
who's is that? You'eral! Mavericks and
' worse. The Maverick has no br.aud on
him. lie goes hollering about until
somebody takes him iu and claps the)
branding iron on him. But you whelps
you've gel the devils brand on you (
You'vo got bis lariat about you. He lets
yon have rope now, but he’ll haul you j

"There ain’t noaitccp herders on these

is as clear as the sky. There’s the Lord
for thc’boM, and the everlasting arms
reaching out for all us poor Mavericks,

you've got to bleat. There a the devil

You dassent yelp now. Y'ou’re a nice

pale if it saw you coming? Y'ou know i',
