lu-lle ol the tribe, who. like Juliet, would sten out

knee, lay down his lute, and conjure her to fly
instantly fly with him lo lbs prairies fly any
where every where, so tli.it sho wns with him
and only him. With bcuting heart and lip trcm
bling Willi emotion alio would tell him thai her

not dare, even for his sake, run the risk of brcuk

Little akilled am I iu.th" vocabulary of an
Indian girl's pledges of love ; but aa in those elTiirs
between parlies in civilized life, each one niahea
out ns lung a catalogue as possible ol what ho or
she in'onda to do its order lo make the other com
pletely hnppy,il is more than probable that the
ciiso is the eamj among the uncivilised children ol
the prairies. Love is a very pretty theme f r
poc!a to dwell iipou, and many of them have been
known to liveupon it ia the absence of more auu
ttanual food but there ia fur more of matter of
fuct even is tins same I 'vojliuu your sentimental
ista would make us believe, and nine tenths of
those airlifted with it Ijavo a decided preference
for rnuh and mutton over moonbcims or mus
banks, especially when they are blessed with good
nppeiiies and renoire real no rishmenta. So it is
in cities, in towns axid in villages so it is iu tlift
lodges of the untutored savage tribes of the West,
or 1 am much mistaken.

The stranger was usked :o tahe a "horn," lo'
which liu readily agreed. Tim parly travelled ou

It ..was finally proposed and agreed io, that the
stringer hitch his horso to the hind part of il-o
cart and ride with tho chicken men. The animal
was eccoidmgly tud by'the neck with a roje,
and laidcned to tbo chicken wagon. , Thoy ' had
not proceeded more ihuua mile hi lliiay,beforo
they discovered their cart hoise pulling Very hard.
The whip was applied however, und he kept mov

Ihe horse slopped. I he parly vent rouud to ptisli
at the Wheels, when it was dicovercd that Iho
traveller's horso was as dead ae a hummer, end
had boon dragged by the neck several hundred
yards, after boing choked to death. ,
ltey soon proceeded en their jnarncy notibrr
getting to touch the overjoylu! uo asionally. They
campod iifwr a creek swamp tor the night. Next -m

tiavelier had been left alone, he touched the jug;

chickens must be Very muchlrrwanr of water J ohd
finally turncjj tliom out to drive them to tho creek.
Tho chickens wero no sooner at liberty than thoy
