Passing of the Cowboy
^ * Once King of th« Prairie now Fast Disappearing.
* | '■HE passing of the cowboy from the
western ranges is an inevitable
part of our national development.
With the restriction of pasturage and
the introduction of fences, the neces-
sity for guardians of our grazing lands
is fast disappearing, and the erstwhile
fantastic flgure immortalized in art
and literature must go forever.
Those pioneers who have lived in the
West for many years have vivid recol-
lections of the cowboy in bis pristine
glory. He was a picturesque person
age, a terror of the frontier and at the
same time a paragon of bravery and
gallantry. Humanity baa never had a
more striking or higher exponent of
knight errantry than is represented in
those men who rode the ranges and
guarded the herds. In the storm which
incited the stampede: in the silent
night beneath the stars, and during
the burning heat of day, the men who
sat in their saddles for many hours and
faithful); kept 'heir lonely vigil were
heroes who may well be immortalized
in verse and sfory.
The great West, especially that por
tion which is given over to the cattle
raising industry, owes its development
largely to the cowboy. As a spectac
ular and at the same time faithful and
necessary adjunct of livestock produc-
tion, this type of man stands out in
scenic interest. One cannot contem-
plate the old-Muie cattle business with-
out including in the retrospection the
"cow puncher" now fast disappearing.
The civilized tendencies of tranquility
and progress have rung down the cur-
tain upon the dauntless men who for
half a century earned sustenance upon
the range and lived under the patron
age of the ranchmen. The man of the
chaps and the quirt is no longer the
king of the prairie. All tribute to his
personal trustworthiness and his in
domitable courage. The wreck of the
storm, the fever of heat and the roman
tic associations of his employment have
cast the cowboy in heroic mold.
With the disappearance of the prim
itive conditions of the newer West goes
the picturesque figure of the cowboy.
Fearless, generous and almost alwayB
admirable, the cowboy must take his
place in the silent profession of the
passing and his occupation must yield
to those who sow the seed and reap the
harvest Id the peaceful pursuits of ag

No one who is acquainted with its
good qualities can be surprised at the
great popularity of Chamberlain

harmful substance and may be given

consideration it is not surprising that
people in foreign lands, as well as at

and very few are willing to take any

The court had such terrors for Levi
Still, that in preference to justice he
risked his life in a dash for liberty and
jumped from a running train at a full
rate of speed. Still is an Indian and
was arrested for horsestealing, and in
charge of officer Dick Vann, had
boarded an Iron Mountain train at Illi-
nois station Monday headed towards
this city. As soou as the train ob-
tained a full rate of speed he jumped
through an open car window, landing
uninjured at the bottom of a high em
bankment. In an instant after reach-
ing the ground he was cn his feet and
made his escape In the woods before the
train could be stopped, and the search
made by the officers has so far beei.
Saves Two from Death.
"Our little daughter had an almost
fatal attack of whooping cough and
bronchitis," writes Mrs. W. K. Havi-
land of Armonk, N. Y., "but, when all
other remedies failed, we saved her
life with Dr. King's New Discovery.
Our niece, who hafi consumption in an
advanced stage, also used this wonder-
ful medicine and today she is perfectly
well." Desperate throat and lung dis-
eases yield to Dr. King's New Discov-
ery as to no other medicine on earth.

In an interview at Ardmore a few
days ago, in fpeuking of the proposed
plan of Senator Stewart, the Ardmore-
ite quotes the following from Kx-Con-
gressmau Peel of Arkansas:
"The government'* policy In land
matters in Indian Territory is well de-
fined, and In my opinion there will be
no change made hy congress at the
coming session. Toe treaty has been
made and ratified. The Indians want
that treaty to stand, and congress ought
not to abrogate this treaty which has
been made after c-uch reflection on the
part of the people. For the life of me
I cannot see auythiug wrong with the
lease question.' Of oourse there have
been abuses, but the federal courts have
authority to regulate this matter.
"I consider the plan advocated by the
chairman of the cemmittee on Indian
affairs, Mr. Stewart, wholly impracti-
cable. In the first place it would ere
ate much chaos, upsetting business
conditions to a great exteni. Most of
the leaoes have been made for a period
of five years. To suddenly wipe out
leases would prove disastrous to the
"What plan can be substituted?" was
I cannot think of any legislation
just at preseat that would improve mat-
ters. Soon after the patents are signed
the Indian can sell a portion of his
land, and as lime goes on be can sell
still more. It seems to me that the
business interests are well satisfied,'
with the government's policy. Let
well enough alone would be my motto."
The force of Congressman Peels re-
marks is best understood throughout
this country. While it is the view of
the outsider It must not be understood
that he is unfamiliar with affairs in the
territory, for he is considered one of
the ablest authorities on Indian mat-
ters In the Union, having been chair-
man of the house committee on Indij.nJ.
affairs years ago In congress, and thai
his advice was always sought in con-
nection with any legislation for the In-
dians. He served in the house a por-
tion of the time when Judge Townsend
was a member from Colorado. It
might be said that Mr. Peel has al
ways been a staunch friend of the ter-
