Copyright. 1INM, by Moffkt. Ytrd t? Company. Wben "gtampeded cattle get to mill- Ing they turn ID upon themselves, either involuntarily or because of pres- put cpon them by cowboys ieek- Inf to control them. They Yweep around In concentric circles in a great spiral. The pressure on the outside to constrict the circles more and until the cattle are jammed into a whirling vertiginous mass, of which nothing can be seen but uplifted heads and uptossed horns. This mass, fran- tic wlta fear and fury, sways and whirls over the ground like a tornado, with a motion of rotation and transla- tion the same time. Above the dnst of Iti trampling comes the dieting o" the "dew claws and the cleft hoofs as- the-feet are lifted sharply froza tae ground. These, vrith the rattling of horns and the bellowing of those on the outer edge, make the animal whirl- pool a perfect Inferno of noise and clamor. The mill sweeps around aod around, and: the only way to break it is to un- wind is. to cut into tbe bunch and ttart tbe outer edge off on a tan- gent, so that the whole unwinds itself mechanically by reversing the process which brought it together. This is an operation of much difficulty, attended with great danger. The man who breaks in must do it backward, as it were. He must follow .the movement of the perimeter of the great circle, heading cattle do. and, by skill and dexterity force ont first one and then another until be gets the circum- ference broken. In tbe end tbe break Is apt to come quickly, and tbe awful maelstrom of maddened animals dis- solves into a peaceable herd almost as quickly as It wound itself into a fran- To be "caught Inside such a mill is death- Fortunately Harriet Renwyck was on the outskirts. The situation, was sufficiently terrifying as it was, however. Above the dost she conld see a quivering expanse, of horned heads. She was riding a man's saddle and in man fashion. The pres- sure upon her horse was so tremen- dous tb.-it in order to from beintf crushed she'shook, her feet from the stirrups and drew her legs up about the safldlehorn. She had no control whatever of her pony. Although she .was fortunately on the outer edge of j the ring, there were still a half ..dozen of the cattle between her and tbe open prairie, all crowding into the center, and with every turn she was being car- ried toward the vortex with irresisti- ble force. She was utterly terrified, yet she realized that her only possible hope of salvation was to keep her senses and her seat. If she fainted and fell the result would be death. The love of lute was strong In her, and she clung to her saddle and prayed as never before. Her eyes were blinded with dust and fear. She could see nothing bnt cattle and the terrible gyrating mass. How long she whirled about with them In giddy rotation she could'not tell. It seemed hours, ages, before a voice pierced her ear. Where did it come from? She turned her eyes toward the sound and dimly made out tbe figure of a man on the edge of the circle above the cloud of dust He seemed to her of gigantic stature. What was he saying? strained every nerve ,tp understand. Presently she made out: "Keep up! Don't let go! "We'll get you This was reassurance, but not much. The prospect seemed hopeless. The cattle were going slower now as she worked toward which was yet a great way off. Her pony was wedged in so tightly that he could not falL The voice kept up a continual cry of encouragement It seemed to be drawing nearer, but the terrible strain under which she, was laboring was telling upon her.. Although she clutched the pommel of her saddle with the tenacity of despair, she found her- self swaying dizzily. 'She clinched her teeth and summoned all her resolution for a last but realized with a growing horror that her end was near. If help did not come quickly she would be prostrate on the mass of horns. BtiU the voice appealed to her, called to her, pleaded with her, implored her, stimulated her. She held on and on desperately as she swept around and around- tney drew near tbe two cowboys recognized that this was one of the worst mills they had ever witnessed. There was a little dip to the ground where the cattle had swerved that had thrown them even more violently to- ward the center than would have oc- curred on level prairte. The first man thought he had never seen any steers tighten so quickly and whirl so fast Els impulse was to leap his horse across the intervening cattle straight He ncevt tier to his breast at last and held her. at the figure of the girl, as a cavalry- man rides down an obstacle, but be knew that such a step would be fatal.

The first blows had no effect, but the repe- tition at last met with response. They swerved slightly, and he forced his horse into the outer edge. Having ef- fected this, entrance, he knew .that he had made a sufficient beginning to en- able him in the end to loosen the tight- ened ring. He was just a little in front of the girl, and back of bim the other man was nobly seconding his ef- forts. Would she be able to keep up long enough for them to accomplish her rescue? They worked desperately. Men al- ways work desperately under such cir- cumstances, bnt in this instance It was with added Incentive.

All that is ber of Myers' family rushed out into is for the members the rain and calling Constable Mat- lect. from those Unionists m thias, implored him to lend his as- sistance, as Mr. Myers had swallow- ed poison. Matthias responded at once and utking a jug of inilk and throwing in six raw eggs, command- ed the sufferer to swallow, which he did. Meanwhile another excited member of the household had rushed out and called P. C. Watson. The second constable prescribed Epsom salts, and a hurried rush to the drug store was followed by the ab- sorbing on the part of the victim of a half pound of 'the salts. Then while someone was excitedly calling the ambulance, Drs. Leviue and Johnston rushed in fully prepared to cope with a desperate 'case of poison- ing. Later they made an examina- tion of- and came to the conclusion that there was not and never had been any trace of poison in his system- A case of somewhat- similar 'kind gave Constable Charles Bell a bad scare and Ambulance Driver John run" the necessary to col- their particular vilage or town an annual subscription of sixpence or upwards. By this means., and with very little trouble, the greater part of the ex- penses of organization might easily b? defrayed. But, far more than this, there is the moral effect of a personal sub- subscription compared with which the actual money ...is as nothing. It works but in this way. Every man who subscribes one penny to the lo- cal party funds at' once feels that he a direct interest in the political welfare of the constituency. If a candidate is to be selected 'he wish- es to see him or know something about him; if a meeting is to be held in the village, he must be there to watch over the .utterances of the speaker he reads his local paper with the greatest care; he has help-" ed forward the cause by his money, and, come what may, he intends to get full value for it. Is it possible to conceive a more frenzied drive 5n the early I healthful political atmosphere? And all this because the electors, from the richest to the poorest, are asked to contribute their share towards the upkeep of the organization. In a few .constituencies this system has been, tried; and what is. more to the point it has succeeded in. exactly the manner, here described, and if hours yesierday-morning. pa- trolling his beal about 4 o'clock Bell was alarmed: hy the spectacle of a woman wearing only a nightdress artd a skirt .rusMag_ towards nim.
