ROBINSON Secy.-Treas. The Talxsr Free Press says: The Taber ferry has been located down near Grassy Lake, washed up In one of C. E. Furman's fields. Herbert Itusscll went clown Tuesday to sec what is necessary to launch the craft. We understand it will likely be taken down the river to Burdctt, where it is proposed to establish a ferry sys tcm of crossinf the river. A new- ferry is now being built for tiw, Taber till the bridge is completed. saddle in unknown iu. the big of the Miller Courfort, safety and health ay argue for live cross-seat, in the juiuds of these young wouieu, who spend more hours thaju under roof. Jewel} Mix, a 101 Ranch belle, than whom no mounted cowboy more fearless or bkillful, sounds the praise and popu- larity for the cross-saddle as .follows-. Tho side-saddle is fust being rek- to the oblivion of the hoop- skirt of our grandmothers, aad ail women lovers of the horse should re- joice. False modesty instigated both the hoop skirt and the uide saddle. Comfort and grace and freedom of movement condemn them both. Astride riding had its origin in this country on the vast reaches of the-western prairie. There it is a practical necessity. The western wo- man is frequently in the saddle for hours at a time. She acts as mail- carrier and purchasing agent for the household, and the trading points are generally miles distant from the ranch house. Often she joins in the roundup of the cattle, in which she is as proficient as the cowboys, and it is not unusual for her to take a twenty-mile jaunt for visit or festi- val of the plains. No woman endure these equestrian undertakings in the side-saddle, with its impossi- bility of changing position. There is some innate prejudice in the minds of the feminine residents of the cities against the cross-seat, but the example of the woman of the prairies is fast overcoming it. We girls of the 101 Ranch who are now touring the country notice in the parks and on the highways that our staters are fast abandoning the for- mer favorite seat. Astride riding is now being taught in prominent riding academies nnd many saddlery houses have en- tirely stopped the manufacture of the side-saddle on account of the small demand. They are producing a dainty padded cross-saddle. In the livery stables, too, it is un- usual to find a side-saddle. A well- known stableman in Oklahoma City, Okla., told me that he would not per mit a side-saddle to be placed on his horses. The unevenly distributed weight of the body iu side-saddle, he said, frequently wounded the horse's back and the strain caused internal (injuries. The tight girthing required for the side-saddfc in order to keep it from slipping, he added, had done permanent harm to several of his an- imals. The long equestrian sk'irt, necessary for wear with the side-saddle, is a' dangerous adjunct. If the horse falls it is impossible for the rider to pro- tect "herself. The flowing cloth comes entagled in and the rider is at the mercy of her fran- tic prostrate mount. It is generally an easy matter for the woman vith divided skirt to free herself from the cross-saddle of a fallen horse. I recall a New York Society wo- man whose name is familiar all over the country as an owner of blooded saddle horses, who spent several :honthg on the 101 Ranch last fall. She brought her sidesaddle with her and_ was quite scandalized at the sight of us girls galloping over tlie plains in cross-seats. In a week had returned her side-saddle east and was sounding the manifold praises of the cross saddle. She. discovered that tho only purely natural position was iti the saddle of the ranch. She has never before appreciated, how cramped and "twisted her body had been and how its normal funflons had been retarded. She found, too, that she was able to dismount and rest and remount again, whether alono or attended, and she found that -when one position became tire- some there were a variety of others she could assume. I am sure a trial will speedily con- vince the most skeptical woman of the superiority from every standpoint of Ihc cross-saddle over the side-sad die. Its adoption assures the ending of punishment of both rider and mount.
