CASTLES IN SPAIN.
1
How fair fbey rise Tbs perfumed breeze
Trom hyaciuthiue meadow-ground that Comes through the branches of fruit-laden
lies trees.
^Vithin the shade. And .song of bird,
By snow-capped heights of wild sierras Flute-like and mellow, from the copse is
made I heard.
How gloaming white
Those battlements beneath the morning
light!
How marbles show
Their brilliancy against the eternal snow I
How roof and spire
Are daily Jndled to a flashing fire,
And over all
Folds of silken banner rise and fall!
The court below
Is moated with a stream of gentle flovr.
Whose crystal face
' Eeduplicates the beauty of the place.
With soothing sound
Cool fountains scatter jewels all around,
In flashing spiny
The rainbow bends its arcTi above our way.
We enter there
With bosom friends we bid our joys to
share;
W'e rest at ease;
We go again at any time we please.
From mortal eyes
Were veiled the glories bright of Paradise,
Yet there remain
These glorious castles all our own—in Spain.

◄ THE GRAY STEER.
Tivelve humlred feet bigli is the
sun-dial of tlie Lazy J Ranch and
nearly as broad—that cliff of divers
hues which stands out from, the wall
of the canon of the Grand river.
The opposite preci])ice serves the
)S'S as gnoraoii pr_ index to,the
dlav,". . ■I;s~’siiadow sweeps
over the stupendous, variegated face
and marks the course of the sun
through a sky that is always un
clouded. A ledge of porphyry, fifty
feet deep, crowns the dial; often it
looks like a strip of pink ribbon to
the men below by the stream. But it
■was a glorioits coronal, kindling in the
first rays from the east, when Holden
hailed it with uplifted eye and hand
as he quirted his horse through the
bai'way of the corral.
“Sunup!” cried Holden, the young
foreman, filled with the joy of the
morning. He is the son of the presi
dent of the cattle company; he had
come straight from’college to the cow-
camj), and the old stroke of the ’var
sity eight-set a hot pace in saddle for
the Lazy J riders.
He rode that morning a big-boned.
Roman-nosed, blue-roan “outlaw”—a
horse pronounced irreclaimable by the
boys; he had tied a bucking roll
across the shoulders of his saddle to
supplement the grip of his knees, and
on top of that lay the big, loose coil
of his fifty-foot cable line, for he w'as
still young enough to disdain a lariat
of lesser length and caliber.
Behind Holden Navajo Jim lifted a
light left foot to the stirrup; then his
spurred right tripped clinking to the
evasive dance of his young horse, and
he slipped,inimitably into his saddle.
To its right shoulder hung the trim
coiled ring of his rope of braided raw-
hide, which, to that of the foreman,
•was as steel to iron and would hold
anything on hoofs.
Foreman and follower struck out
through the greasewood over ground
without grass; the grazing range lay
high on the mesa, fenced by the lofuy
-the caxioh. Its seemingly in
accessible height Avas scaled by the
sure-footed, agile range cattle at a
break in the ^ porphyry ledge not far
up the canon,’ and presently they took
to the dizzy trail.
With slack cinches the blowing
horses clawed up the loose footing at
the top of the break and moved out on
a nav]-ow projecting tongue of the
mesa. Still higher the mesa broad
ened and was set Avith squat cedars
and pinons. Here the riders saAv cat
tle already cheAving their cuds in the
shade.
“We’re too Ioav doAvn. There’s
nothing here, ” said the young fore
man, liis eyes roving over the stock.
“It’s beef I’m after. I’ve got to
get a train-road off by the first and not
a luindred steers gathered yet!”
“Quaking-asp putty good place
for steer noAv,” said Navajo Jim.
“Water sweet there and stampin’-
ground close. ”
“i’es, IkuoAv,” Holden returned,
imimtiently. “The boys started
twenty head doAA'ii yesterday and had
them pointed for the corral, Avhen
that blamSd gray steer scattered the
bunch, and they broke back for the
hills.”
“That gray steer like bull elk. Bet
ter corral him Avith si.x-shooter,” said
Jim. “One steer not much Avorth,”
“Six-shooter nothiugl What’s our
ropes for?*’cried Holden. “That big
grizzly brute Avill fetch up a whole
carload to the top notch in the stock-
pens. He goes on hoof to Omaha. I
told the boys I’d give a $50-doliar
saddle to the first man that ‘tAvined’
him and stayed Avith him.”
“I already got putty good saddle,
fc3Ir. Holden/’ saicL^iit,. itlu- a-grin».-
- year old n'OAv,
Horns so long
;iirough horse. ”
^Vell, beef’s up in the air; horses
are doAvn, ” returne(I the foreman,
“Quirt up, Jim. We’ll strike up
higher.”
On the loftier grazing-ground they
found the cattle-still at feed. Through
thickening hosts of deer-flies and
horse-flies their horses strained up the
steep oakbi-nsh slopes. In banded
resistance to like AAuuged attacks, the
cattle of the higher range Avere begin
ning to “bunch” on each open stamp
ing-ground. ToAvard these trampled
circles the scattered steers Avere one
by one making their Avay.
“The boys can run in all these
steers tomorrow,” said Holden. “You
and I, Jim, are going to tAvine that
gray steer today.”
“He got big scare yesterday; too
sharp to show rip on stampin’-grouiid
today,” Jim suggested.
“Like enough,” Holden assented,
“but Ave’ll rustle him out. The boys
lost him late yesterday in the long
quaking-asp patch in that gulch up
there, just beloAv the rim-rock. ”
He pointed to the rini-rock of the
spruce ridge, rising yet loftily above
them Avith innumerable aspen gulche’s
and brushy slopes draining down into
the side canons.
Quickening their horses, they pres
ently rode into the green gloom of the
gulch, Avhere the .o,u?’ ‘:ig-aspeus
ifere'
mighty hootprints dinted 'deep the
mud and the sodden trails.
“Dere his track, fresh,” said Jim,
stooping from his saddle over a print
like a post-hole. “He lie close, some-
Avhere. ”
“We’ll put him up,” said Holden,
confidently; “and once he shows,stay
with him, Jim.”
“You bet I stay!” said Jim, simply.
They threaded the Avinding thicket
on separate trails and met near its
head Avithout a sight of the graj^steer.
“It’s no use looking for him
doAvn in here,” said Holden. “He’s
gone up higher. Let’s try in the
spruce beloAv the rim-rock.”
He led the Avay upAvara along tlie
steep, brushy side of the gulch until,
stopped by the rim-rock, they sat in
their saddles and looked down and
back in disappointment.
Below them the gulch enclosed the
fastness of the deer, a space darkened
to twilight by a growth of young
spruce and aspen saplings.
“Maybe he doAvn in those,” said
Jim, Avith a drop alike of voice and
hand. “Hide hisself in daytime like
blacktail buck.”
“But we can’t get into that ‘pocket’
on horses,” Holden replied loudly, in
vexation. “Wait! I’ll try for him!”
As he spoke he dismounted to act
on a boyish inspiration.
He had noticed a big block fallen
from the rim-rock and lying tilted up
on the slope. With mighty heaAung
he overturned it, and down the slope
it crashed in smashing leaps through
the brush and SAvayiug timber to the
very heart of the spruce thicket.
Snorts came up from beloAv; Holden
marked the course of startled, hurry
ing creatures by the lines of swaying
lops furi'OAving tile still, green sur
face, and three graud bucks sprang
out,their horns shoAving bvoAvn in the
velvet as they topped the lower brush;
but a bearer of mightier horns Avas
breaking through the pliant young
trees, and a glimpse of a grizzly hide
Avas exultantly caught by the young
foreman.
“Ah, he shoAv up noAv!” shouted
NaA'^ajo Jim, erect in the stirrups, as
the great steer came out beloAV.
Bred from the finest of the Lazy J
stock, he Avould have Aveighed near
2000 pounds; but such speed and bot
tom Avere his “rustling” on that rough
range that the big body rose over the
brush Avith the Avild grace of a buck,
and Avith dper-like ease his^frontlet,
black and - tlireateulug, Avas throAvn
back over his grizzly shoulder as he
stopx)ed and eyed his hunters for an
instant. One defiant shake of his per
fect horns, then he raced oiiAvard,and
only bending, brush marked his path.
Holden Avas already galloping after
him, smashing the undergroAvth in a
straight course doAvn the slope to in
tercept him beloAv, shouting as he ran.
Jim, with Indian circumspection, ran
his horse in an easiey descent along
the slope, keeping his eyes on the
swaying brush beneath and Availing
for an opportunity of closing in more
open ground.
Now Holden’s horse, the blue out
law, shoAved once more bis si)irit and
brought Holden close behind the
game. Navajo Jim emerged from the
thicket to see the young foreman fii
full career, SAvinging his big rope,
Avhile the haltered head of the horse
and the huge-horned frontlet of the
steer reached out in an even race
across .the little open ^pace beyorj/’..,
■' tii’e'iooplif Hbldeh’s cable liJ fairly
OA'er the widespread horns; but his
hand was hardly quick enough in
closing it. While it hung slack the
steer leaped Avitli both front legs
through it, and then Holden’s tardy
jerk brought it tight around the grizzly
flanks.
The beast belloAved as the plunge
of hi& great gray body drcAv the turn
of the rope sAviftly from the saddle-
horn. Vainly Holden tried to stay it.
Recklessly he threAv the slack end in
a hitch around the steel horn and
clapping his hand OA-er it braced his
horse for the shock.
With forelegs outplanted and quar
ters lowered, the stubborn blue out-
laAv stanchly set himself to the tight
ening rope. For an instant he was
jerked along, stiff-legged, then over
they Avent, dragged doAvu, fierce horse
and reckless roller.
Clearing his legs, hanging at the
side of his struggling horse, Holden
still held the saddle-horn with poAver-
fui grasp. Another baAvl, a plunge
that no cinches could Avithstand—and,
lo, the sacldle Avas stri2)ped from the
outlaAv and jerked high and far from
Holden’s hau.d! - «
Navajo Jim checked his horse, but
“On!” roared the young foreman, and
on the obedient Indian spurred after
the wild steer and the hying saddle.
The great steer seemed scarcely to
feel the 50-pound drag of the bump
ing saddle. Y'et it tightened the rope
about loin and flanks, and by making
it harder for him to breathe so lessened
his speed that Jim easily kept him in
sight. Through yielding brush and
swaying thicket, through bunches of
frightened cattle that split to let him.
pass and came stringing after,bucking
and baAvling in sympathy, the brute
plunged on.
Each bawling bunch in turn was
distanced. The brushy slopes broke
aAvay. As the mesa, sjjrinkled Avith
piuous, began to offer to Jim smooth
spaces for handling his horse, he un
buckled the strap that held the coil of
his rope, but still, as every leap of
the steer took him the nearer to the
corral, the wise Indian only held the
rawhide ringed ready in his hand.
LoAvn the rapidly narroAving fejiigne
of the mesa—the mesa Avhich tipped
precipitously out into the river-gorge
and Avaa bounded on either side by an
abyss—the trapped steer sped. He
must soon be at a standstill or at
tempt to return on his tracks.
The Indian’s eyes had already kin
dled Avith anticipation of triumph, Avhen
at the last of the pinons the bumping
Vaugiii lasT^ b^we- ••
}5rojeeting roots. It scarcely checkea
the steer! Holden’s cable tore loose
from the saddle-horn, and its slack
ened iooi^ Avas speedily kicked from
the steer’s high-plunging haunches.
Once more the great gray brute Avas
free.
“Ah, he on the push noAv!” said
Jim and looked to his loop as the steer
reA'ersed his big body, gave a high,
Avritbing leap, over the spurned rojje,
confronted the herder Avith the threat
ening crescent of his sharp horns and
plunged forward to the combat.
The Navajo lifted his horse aside
Avitli the spurs, swung the loop open
in his right hand and rose, half turned
in the stirrups, in a quick underthrow
for the front hoofs of the steer as he
lunged by.
Jim’s eyes saw, for an instant, low
ered horns and uplifted hoofs mingled
together, and his throAV Avas true. But
so quick was the play of the ponder
ous feet that the loop caught one fore
leg only and passed over the face and
hung across the horns.
The loop, draAvn tight by the roper’s
instantaneous jerk andkeptfrom slack
ening by his nimble horse,bound horn
and hoof together. Noav the steer
Avas in sad plight. With head drawn
sidewise, Avith tongue lolling from
open jaws, bellowing, he surged on
thi'ee legs, but bis spirit was un
broken.
The roper sloAA-^ed his horse to the
strain. From horn to cantle the sad
dle creaked as, trampling and tugging
in a wild, Avide Avaltz, straining horse
and hauling steer made the mad cii’-
cuit of the precipices.
The Navajo, active in the saddle
with rein, spur and rope, Avas, in spite
of all b.i« effort^, dragged- pa&t •i-Lg~
break Avhere the trail ran doAvn the
s’ope. His horse, ahvay's straining
desperately, was tugged on and on
until he circled along the perilous
l)0)’phyry brink, and Jim glanced
longingly from the saddle on the coV
riil, seemingly almost directly beneatfi
him, its great square shrunk to the
measure of his saddle-blanket. ’
Holden,pounding doAvn bareback on
the blue roan, bad stopped to gather
ujj his rope, but noAv Jim heard his
encouraging shout. The quickened
tramj) of his rushing horse, the Avhivr-
iugof'liis big rope as he SAvung it
aloft, sounded close at hand, and the
SAveating roper relaxed his strain.
The steer, alert to the slack, jerked
his hoof from the loop. Heedless of
the cutting rope, instantly tightened
across face and frontlet, his stately
head Avas lifted, and he stood, wild
eyed, quivering, cornered, caught but
not conquered. He Avas on four legs
again. Conquered? Never! With
resistless ijull on the rope, he Avheeled
and broke for escape across the cliff
that rises, red-banded, above the cor
ral.
“Stay with him, Jim!” roared the'
young foreman, swinging his rope,
sure the steer Avould stop at the edge.
Stay Avith him? It meant death
sirrely. Already under the plunging
front hoofs of the desperate rebel the
IJorphyry rim crumbled. Jim’s obedi
ence did not falter, although he Avas
fairly staring doAvn on the corral.
How Avould tlie falling feel?
The Indian had a swift picture of it
—the steer loAvest in the air on the
taut lariat, horse and man whirling
after—but Navajo Jim set hU savage
jaAvs. No forem'an should dare him
to_stay Avitb a 1^9-5?'''' +
hot look on the faces of Avliite rojiers
sneering. He was hired body and
soul—he Avas obedient—he avouIcI
stay.
Holden, for this mad second,watched
incredulously. The steer Ai'oald not
go over—surely not. What? Straight
on! And Jim! Was the man also
crazy? Then the Navajo haard once
more his master’s voice.
“For God’s sake, Jim—let go! .0
heavens!”
Jim obeyed. He flung- loo.se the
rope, but on his horse stag,; n-ed. And
the black length of the larbii Avas still
Avhipping out Avith the defl.iui;- horned
head that pitched off into ^paco when
the agile horse saved himr. df and his
rider on the very brivik.
Holden dropped his use less roj)e as
the Navajo, skimming lie jjorphyry
edge like a sAvalloAV, ro le back and
stared into the eyes of the white man.
“He was brave, that steer,” said
Jim,Avith a queer choke in his throat.
“He saved himself from the stock-
pens.”
Holden held out Lis hand and
grasi^ed the Indian-’s. “You beat my
time, Jim,” Avas ail he .‘'uid, but soiiie-
thing in the tone call -d a ne\v pride
into the Navajo’s ste-.i face.—Frank
