The Last of the Balhles I I was standing in front of a sketch by Bierstadt, the artist, the other day, says a newspaper correspondent, which rep resentted an old buftIa bull, pierced by an arrow and struggling in death throes on the prairie, while an Indian came riding up to his victim. In the back. ground a herd of buffaloes were seen throing up their heels as they loped away. A Western man at my side said: "Tlat is a life-like picture, but we shall never see the herds of buffaloes again, and I doubt if there are over a hundred in the country to-day. They have been literally exterminated. The great hosts which used to roam unchecked over the prairies were a wonderful sight. I have seen herds which the bordermen have told me contained fully 100,000 animals. When they moved over the prairie they swept everything iaefore them. In a stampede no living thing could hope to live in front of them unless it could out run their leaders. Twenty years ago there were millions of buffaloes on t...

A ,enatt.r who sailed for Europe lst week thought a passport might be useful on the other side. He cal-ed at the State Depart'lent one morning shortly before leaving the city, and was informed that he must apply to the chief clerk for the pa .port.

But he was out, and his more aristocratic us sistart, who is a conspicuous success as a "'soiety young man," did not know his vi-itor. With the merest glance, and in a tone of lofty indlifference, he said: "A passport? Oh, you will have to go down to the floor below, where they are made out."

Friends who had proved themselves true as steel and loving as brothers. We were parting from them, lured by hopes that might be deceitful, and when we grasped their hands in a last farewell, words failed us, and our tears and stifled sobs alone told them of our gratitude for the bene fits that they had showered so generously upon us. They, too, wept, touched to the heart by the eloquent though mute ex pression of our gratitude. Their last words were words of love, glowing with might be realized.

When the war closed, and for a nunmber of years after, the changedl condition of affairs led many young men to believe that the cities and towns afforded the best fields for making a living. Farms awl farm houses were in ruins, labor was disorganizedl and there seemed to ie no prolt in tilling the ground. To avery great extent, therefore, vyoung men sought the centres of lpopulation, while their fathers renttel the farms to neigroes. Many found emplvrnent as clerks in stores, others entered some one of the learned profetsios. As a rule the clerks received small asdaries, and when the busy season was over their occupation was gone until the return of fall. In the summer months  'ntme went lbs.k to the farms, and eugaged in irregular work; but the maj:',rity...
