The President at the break of day Had packed his duds and moved away. A blrar e Shoshone chief came out With his willow pole to fish for trout. It was half-past six when he cast his line, And he kept on fishing till half-past nine; And then he baited his hook anew And patiently fished until half-past two- The meanwhile swearing a powerful sight For tishing all day with nary a bite. And he swore and fished. and fished and swore Till his Elgin watch tolled half-past four, When a b:g fat trout came swimming by And winked at the chief with his cold, sad eye. "And do you reckon, you pagan soul, You can catch us trout with a willow pole? The President taught us manners while iHe fi-hed for us in the latest style. You've no idea how proud we feel To be jerked ashore with a Frankfort reel !" The red man gathered...

Rorse Thieves. From W. E. Clark, who is just in from Barker, we learn that the horse thief, Davis, who recently escaped, with the Chinese murderer, fr'om the Meagher county jail, is now lurking around in the vicinity of Barker, with deputy sheriffs Wilson and Kyes hard on his trail. It seems that Wilson has at his feed stable the famous race horse, Bunch Grass, belonging to the escaped prisoner, and the fellow swears he will get his racer or die in the attempt. The horse and stable are kept securely guarded, and any attempt of Davis to get him will probably result in his death or cap tyne. Tuck Lambert saw the escaped horse thief in Belt Park last Friday, Davis going from there to Capt. Payne's ranch above the mouth of dry fork of Belt, where he stopped over night. The next seen of him was at Sellew's, Saturday. The boys at Charley Martin's ranch say he took dinner there Sunday, striking for the mountains after the meal. Davis is mounted on the horse he stole at the Springs the nigh...
