On one occasion our ranch had a very Koocl running horse and he was slipped In without the public getting on to tho game. After he was tried out a ma>tch was made with a neighboring ranch to which we adjournal, upon a "Sunday/* because tho raco ground was better there. As noon an the terms were arranged and tho tnonoy up the horses were ptvipur>�'l. All people available came out to the race among wllch were two most atKipectable aged ladles, cither TO years'of age or thereabouts. They i>ut up their money like men, and as the excitement rose higher, and possibly being accustomed to pok. erf put up more and more staking everything even to their earnings on our opponent. Our horse won .amid great excitement, and having a wagon along we rounded up the -Spoils and started for home. When we came to auke an Inventory of the -spoils at our bachelor diggings It was hard -to divide up for we had something of everything and nobody want *d the old ladies' earrings. We had flhapR and spurs, bridles and bits, a saddle or two, clothes of different atorts, knives, scissors, boots, shoes, gold and silver watches and anything that was i�nrtuhlc including a horse or two. Wo believe the trinkets were Inter restored to the old ladies but they had been game In the first place paid thi/ir htrts and Mover squealed.

Tho committors fenced for time, I.e., neither one wished to Im the first up but put a foot In tho Ktlrrup and watched tho other, keeping a leery eye upon his cow's horns, the cow bawling und foaming and swishing her tatl. At last Hock Ing got to a place where he had to drop his other leg over the noddle and Urtght waited a little, then plop |K�d on. The first man stayed on a Jump or two then went over the cow� head with llrtght following soon after, but as he was tho last man down he was adjudged the winner and tho other paid for the whiskey. Most of us old fogies sit In grand stands now and watch the amusements we must pay to go and see, for to look at us Wo seem as harmless as the rest of mankind. The most approved method of riding cattle Is to put on a big pair of Mextcun spurs, then drop on the cow face to tall, tie full length with logs locked under the neck, with hands dropped down tho flanks with a secure hold on to the loose skin of the flanks with each hand. The only objection to this mode is that you citi>-not see where you arc going to *>ut you can stay longer.

Cut the plaster into triangles and strips to fit the wrinkles and paste on in the night. Itemovo in the morning and massage gently for five or ten minutes with a good cold cream. Use a strong plaster and one that will stick well. The black variety is best for this purpose. CLEANING SK1IITS t Here Is a practical plan for cleaning and pressing skirts: Brush them first, then whisk off with a clean I)rush dampened In ammonia and warm water. Any stain can bo removed if rubbed out at once with a mixture of equal parts of ammonia alcohol and vtiter. After the skirt Is thoroughly cleaned brushed and dried, lay It on the pressing table or board, *Jpln each plait down In a proper fold, cover the skirt with a piece of dark woolen goods which has been previously dampened and then press.. To remove dust, from silk skirts do not uso a brush, but wipe them with a plcve of velveteen', which will not wear the silk and will remove tho dust very much more satisfactorily than a brush.
