“Ab was a fair player, but I was
fresh from Chicago, and up to all
the dodges of a professional; and
gradually I pocketed all the loose
change that he could rake and
scrape; until finally, I got him
down to bedrock, and had to hold
up until Uncle Dick paid him his
next quarter’s salary. Then I ful
ly intended to wade in and gobble
the entire hundred and fifty, and
pull back for civilization.”
“It was a pretty scheme, bat
somehow it failed to work Ab
Skninner was doing a little schem
ing at the same time, and his brain
was clearer than mine.
“A week before pay-day, he
went over to the ‘circle bar’ ranch
and when he came back I saw that
he had been drinking,-and was as
happy as a wolf in a sheep-pen;
but he simmered down again, and
so things rocked on for a few days
“We had just moved our cattle
in from the upper range and
throwed ’em in on a little valley
west of the shanty, where not a
blade of grass had been nipped all
summer long, and there they were
feeding—four thousand head of
’em; and as wild a lot as ever waved
a horn in a stampede. One day,
about noon, as Uncle Dick was
coming in from town, the whole
herd lit right out after Him, crip
pled his horse, and nearly scared
the old man to death.
“‘Them cattle are terros/ he
said, as he slid. off his horse,
and spread himself out on the ve
randa, where Ab and I were talk
ing to the Deputy Sheriff, who was
down looking up some stolen
stock—‘I thought ol’ Die’
a gone coon, sure.’
“ ‘They didn’t like your looks,’
said Ab with a laugh. ‘You couldn’t
git ’em to run a genuine cowboy.
Ill bet I could walk clean across
to that knot yander/ and he indi
cated a little hill entirely beyond
the herd; ‘walk over, understand,
afoot, and alone, and never get a
scratch from a horn or hoof.'
“ ‘I would like to bet you some
thing on that,’ said I; and I had
hardly spoken the words before
Ab drew a buckskin bag from his
pocket, and shook out a pile of sil
ver and gold
‘“There is fifty dollars/ said he.
‘If you want to make some money
easy here’s your chance. The
Sheriff.will hold the stakes.’
“Fifty dollars was just the size
of my pile, and Ab'knew it. I
was positive that if Skinner made
a break out in that prairie, one of
them old Spanish steers would run
him down in three minutes; but
still I hesitated.
“ ‘Stick to him Charlev/ said
Uncle Dick: ‘the dad-bJamed tool
will be killed, but that ain’t your
lookout If you don’t bet I will!’
“1 went over and handed Sheriff
Smith the money, and as he put it
in his hat along with Ab’s fifty,
the old man chipped in Again
“ ‘Bein’ as you’re throwiu’ away
your money, Ab, why not give me
some of it?. Thar’s that hundred
an dfifty I was goin’ to pay you to
night—suppose I put it.into the
hat with as much more, an’ if you
get through to the knot, Smith
kutride ever an’ give you the BpU
‘“Good enuff/ replied Ab, and
and then another, and another, un
til there was a .wall of white horns,
fifty yards long, barring Ab’s road
to the mound, and hundreds of
cattle coming in every direction to
take a hand in the frolic. A man
afoot was a cariosity to them, with
which they were evidently bound
to become acquainted, if possible.
“ ‘They’ll kill him in a holy min-
nit/ muttered Uncle Dick Scho
field. ‘It’ll be another sad gath
erin’ of friends around the cigar
box that holds his remains. I tell
yer Smith, human life is ter’ble
“ ‘Ab Skinner’s haint,’ replied
the Sheriff. ‘He’s the luckiest
feller in forty-three States. I
don’t see how he’s going ter make
it, but he’ll come out somehow.’
Just then we saw Skinner stop
and put his hand in his pocket.
He had approached within sixty
yards of the herd, and every hoof
was watching him, with a general
head shaking and bellowing, that
would have frightened a common
man into fits.
“ ‘He’s gittin 1 his gun/ said un
cle. ‘Mebby he thinks he Mn bluff
’em with a little shootin’, but he’ll
miss it, an’ if he Mn Mil two hun
dred dollars worth at six dollars a
head, I’ll try ter stand it.’
“But Ab did not intend to shoot.
He had dropped down: out of sight
in the tail grass, and as we. were
wondering what it all meant, we
saw a tongue or flame leap up in
the air, and rapidly spread, with
the wind fanning it in the direc
tion of the cattle at race-horse
speed. Then the bellowing and
scraping ceased; the wall of gleam
ing horns fronted iu the other di
rection, and the whole herd made
a break for the bare hills, while Ab
stepped in the blaze and followed.
“The smoke settled in the little
valley and hid everything from
view, and L for one, was quite sat
isfied that it should be so. There
was no danger to be apprehended
from the fire—for the ranch was
protected by a stream that the
blaze could not cross with the
wind against it—but I knew.
my fifty dollars was gone, and I
felt as sour as vinegar. *
Unde was feeling no better.
He seemed to be paralyzed, and
never made about the fire ruining
Ms range; and when three pistol
shots from the knot notified us
that Skinner had got through, he
looked as though he had been sen
tenced to the ‘pen’ for life.
“The money is Ab Skinner’s’
said Smith, and we knew if we
Mcked we would have the Sheriff
to kill, and not only him, but all
four of his brothers; and they were
all bad men.
‘Tell him not to come back;’
said uncle, savagely, as Smith got
on his horse, to deliver the stakes
according to agreement. ‘Ab is a
good fellow, but he is too allfired
smart. He would own the raneh
in less’n a week.”
“So! Dot yos der vay of it,” put
in Dutch John, soberly. “He gets
your money already, eh! Dot vos
goot—I vos glad of dot”

Virginia is thus far the only
known state which boasts of hen
dentists. Some time since the
Page County Courier published an
account of a hen there angrily fly
ing at a farmer and pulling out
one of his teeth. George E. Heath, j
who lives in Hanover county, states
that on Saturday morning he went
to his hennery and attempted to
take a-hen off her roost, when she
flew at his face, pecked him in his
mouth, and took out a tooth which
had been troubling Mr. Heath for
some time, and which he intended
having extracted. This is the sec
ond hen dentist in Virginia.

the management of their relation
and affairs, the race problem will
settle itself, and the result will be
far better for all than that produced
by the intermedling of those who
really know nothing of the real

Every industrious negro, that re

meets its demands, and moves in
proper bounds, finds in the south
an open field for himselE and as
true white friends as he will find
upon the globe. But if the negroes
