What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

We know little of the cowboy of ancient times. That the evolution of the ancient cowboy was equal to that of his cattle there is no doubt, but it is the cowboy of modern America in which the greatest change has taken place. The metamorphosis and ever- changing conditions. The old-time cowboy is rapidly passing from the stage of human action. In thé early days of the range cattle industry he was the pioneer, making and administering the laws and developing by degrees the wonderful wealth of the western country. On the plains the red man was at first the king, buthe was compelled to surrender to the superior intelli­ gence - and power of his paleface enemy. These early pioneers, while not vastly different from their follows lived a life and possessed traits of character that placed him in a die tinct class. It has beon said that the typical cowboy of twenty to forty years ago had more types of char­ acter in his make-up than any othor class of men. ’ Mr. W. S. James, for twenty years a cowboy on the plains, says that plainsmen might be divided into three classes, the first of which is the true man and loyal citizen, good business man with lots of hustle and energy; second, the truo type of western hospitality, liberal to a fault, especially so iu his moral views, so much so that his conscience is pos­ sessed of an elasticity as to serve him in any emergency, and third, the reckless, devil may care, easy going fellow, who cares for nothing but a saddle, quirt and a $50 job. Number two.isa rustler aud manip­ ulates number three to suit his own ends, but ho is a friend who will divide bis last crust with the needy if necessary. If some one who iu iu danger of arrest applios to him fur shelter it is giv¿n willingly. A gen­ uine number two never forsakes a friend. Number three is the ne’er do-well of the fraternity. Big-hearted, reck­ less fellow, slow to make enemies, but quick as a Hash with a gun when defending his honor, ho will save his money for a year and when an op­ portunity is presented will drink like a fish or gamble like a mining king; he generally spends in two days, and often in a single night, what it has taken months to accumulate. It is number three and an occasional num­ ber two that have caused the name “cowboy” to become synonymous with bowie knives, six-shooters and unrestrained outlawry. Numborone, the highest type, was rarely known to resort to force of firearms except in the protection of property; on the other hand, ho represented the dignity and shrewdness of his profession. There is a wildness, a freedom and a fascination in this life that enchains the young man to such an extent that, after two or three years, he is not satisfied to do anything else. He works hard, never shirks danger, and tobacco, liquor and woman constitute his trinity. Letter of Senator Carter. Evans Ha9 Resigned. Washington, March 31.—Commis­ sioner of Pensions Evans has placed hiB resignation in the hands of the president. It will not take effect until some important position in the % diplomatic service is found for him. The pension committee appointed al‘ the last annual encampment of the G. A. R. to investigate the affairs of the pension bqreaq hM made its report to the president. It has not yet been decided when the report will oe made public, if at all. It is stated that the policy of Commis­ sioner Evans will be continued by his successor. Soon after Mr. Torrence left the White House Mr. Evans called at the requeet of the president and re­ mained with him for frame time. He declined to discuss the question of his retirement from the' office of com­ missioner Qf pensions. Subscribe for 'Çh.e Nfoptanian an(l Çhro^icle—$2.00. per year. A friend of ex-Senator Thomas H Carter yesterday roceived from him at St. Louis the following letter, savs the Anaconda Standard: “ Your thoughtful telegram directed to mo at Pana, 111., was forwarded hero. Your expression of sympathy is thoroughly appreciated. While father lived to a ripe old age, as the average runs, his death was unex­ pected. He was ill but a week. I was with him the last day of his life, and one of the pleasant memories with me rests in recollecting how cheerful and contented ho was. At 5 o’clock, two hours before his death, the doctor asked him how ho felt, to which he replied, ’About liko an Irish potato cake, half and half.’ Ho was a dear old gentleman. “A strange coincidence connected with his death is that he died on the 15th of March aud was buried on the 18th. My mother died on the loth of March aud was buried on the 18th. just twonty-throo yoars previous, and they now rest Bide by side.” Destroyed a Monument. Mail advices from Skagway, slate that during the latter part of lust summer and within tho past six monts, Dick Frazier, an official engi­ neer of the Canadian government, Cattle and Sheep Men Fight. Cheyenne, Wyo., March 30.—Late this afternoon a telephone message was recoived from Big Piney, a small town in Uuitah county, stating that a fierce fight occurred on the range near there yesterday between cattle and Bheep men and that two brothers named Hall had beon killed as a result. No further particulars were recoivod at Big Piney, but a mes­ senger was at ouce dispatchod to the scone of tho conflict to secure further details of tho battle. The roportjhat battle had been fought iu the Upper Green river country caused uo surpriso in Cboyonuofor the cattle and sheep mou of that section have beon at war over a division of the range for (he past two years. Several collisions have occurred between tho two partios, although until tho pres­ ent conflict no fatalities had been reported. if I get s m i- , to say right here J hat jority of the votes cast in the t o n t h 'ii;'^ ^ district I will go to congress »11 right, and there is no law that will' prevent me.” Still Rushing to Klondike. Arbor Day Proclam ation. Govornor Toole yesterday issuod his proclamation for the observance of Arbor day, iu accordance with tho aw of tho stato. Tho date is the socond Tuesday iu May, and tho ob­ servance of tho day this year will have an addod significance by reason of tho Biiggostionof tho governor that wherever tho day is observed at least In all the history of the Klondike there has never been such a crowd of people journeying over the ice from White Horse as now. People' who arrived &t Skagway ten days ago met 500 to 600 people goiag in. Since then steamers have reached Skagway with over 1,000 more miners and prospectors bound for Dawson. Only a very limited number take the stages from White Horse. The balance start out afoot, on bicycles, horseback or with horse sleds. Many of those having horse teams are now freighting in supplies of fancy arti­ cles and hardware; two hardware shipments, one of twenty and one of twenty-five tons, being landed at Skagway last week. Outcoining passengers say that the trail between White Horse and Sel­ kirk is strewn with all manner of wrecks. Bicycles are abandoned everywhere, and broken sleighs of every description have been set along­ side of the trail. Jaded homes are frequent. Because of the rush the White destroyed a Russian boundary monu­ ment. The monument was of stono, resting upon a stono base, and there was a Russian inscription on it. It was situated 18 miles koyond the modus vivondi lino on tbo Canadian side. In the prnsonco of two Amorican minors, Mr. Frazier ordered his men to destroy tho monument. It was torn down, brokon into small pieces and covered with sand and grayel. The affidavits o f the witnesses liavo been taken and sent to tbo stato do partment. James R. Garfield A ccepts. James R. Garfield, son of tho late President Garfield, has accepted tho position of civil service commissioner, tendered him about ten days ago by President Roosevelt. He takes tho place vacated on tho 1st of April by William A. Rodenberg. Garfield is a comparatively young man and is engaged in the practice of law with his brother, Harry A. Garfield, in Cleveland. Ho is a very notable figure in Ohio political circles and has served as state sonator from his district. Ho was the author of the law known as tho Garfield elec­ tion law of Qhio, which required all nominees for elective offices to file with the secrectary of stato a sworn statement o f the oxpenses incurred by them during the campaign. An Up-TQ-Pat<i Obituary. This obituary notice is from tho pen of a Missouri editor who does not have to be shown how to get up such tender stuff: “He was born May 3, 1875, and therefore escaped this earth ’ in time to celebrate bis 27th birthday in thg home o f bis eternal gbpde beyond thp arching skies, leaving this terres­ trial land on Friday, March 19, 1902, at 9:30,p. m., central time.” one troo bo planted in memory of William McKinley, the martyred president, Govoruor Toolo’s procla­ mation follows: “I accordingly dosignato Tuesday, May 13, 1002, ae Arbor Day, and urge a general and cheerful observ­ ance of tho day. \Romcmboriug th e ’ sad death of our lato lamented president, and how well ho loved tbo troos, and re­ calling tbo morning of bis last day on earth when ho ploaded with his nurses to raiso tbo blinds that he might see tho trees in their boauty, I further reeommond that wherever Arbor Day ceremonies are observed, pursuant to this proclamation, at least one treo bo planted in memory of Ex-Prcsidont McKinley. But aside from patriotic sontimeut and civic pride, who can count or measure tho .widespread and far- reaching good accomplished by him who plants a tree? Woman To Run For Congress. Louisvillo, Ky., March 31.—The race for congress in the tenth district is boing enlivened this year by Miss Mary Burkhart, a good looking and wealthy young woman, who is a can­ didate on the prohibition ticket. Miss Burkhart is a resident of Lone Wolf county, and the daughter of a wealthy lumberman, with $100.000 in her own name. She is the first can­ didate in the field and is making a houso to house canvass. Lone Wolf county is a mountain county, as is much of her district, but she is un­ daunted by the almost trackless forests and the mountains, going over most of the ^¡strict on horse­ back. Miss Burkhart is full of vigor* In discussing the race Bhe said:. “Some of tho men up here who are talking about running for4 congress' tell me my race is useless, and that if elected I cannot he seated.
