BUFFALO BILL FROM TRUE TALES OF TIlE PLAINS CCIPt11OK1 ssoeIY WUJtAM 1 CODY HAVE often been asked for torte I about the bad men of the west iu the early days I am 60 lug to tell now of my first run In with the worst kind of white men that then Infested the frontier These were hurse thieves And horse stealing in those days was a crime that came close In ranking with cold blooded murderOnce I wanted a grizzly bear skin or rather one of my sisters wanted It torn tug 1 had promised as soon as I should have time to get her one for even in those times a big grizzly could not be shot In ones dooryard It meant a long trip through the hills and more than a little danger After shooting a bear and skinning him I starUnl back but the going was bnd By sunset I saw I couldnt hope to get back to camp that night So I looked about for a good sheltered spot to camp Just then my horse whin nied His call was answered from a hollow just behind the creek bed along which I was riding I dismounted fastened him and rifle iu hand went on to Investigate There ulddcn In a little gulch were about twenty horses They werent guarded Looking around In the dusk I saw a dugout about n hundred yards up the hilt Lights appeared through the cracks I clambered up to learn who was there I knocked at the blanket door The voices I had heard as I climbed the slope were hushed all at once Then I heard a half dozen sharp clicks That meant the cocking of rifles or revolvers I began to wonder what company I bad stumbled into Before I could move back some one called Whos there A frlcnil and a white man 1 re plied The door opened and a big ugly looking fellow stepped forth and said Come In I accepted the Invitation with some degree of fear and hesitation which I endeavored to conceal as I thought It was too late to back out and that It would never do to weaken at that point whether they were friends or foes Upon entering the dugout my eyes fell upon eight us rough and villainous looking men as I ever saw In my life Two of them I Instantly recognized us teamsters who had been driving In Lew Simpsons train a few ivmtlw before mid had been dis chargedThey nero charged with the murder- Ing and robblug of a ranchman nnd having stolen his horses It was sup Ivjed that they had left tho country I gave them no signs of recognition howovor deeming It advisable to let them remain In Ignorance as to who I wns It was n hard crowd nnd 1 concluded the sooner I could got away from them the better it would be for me I felt confident that they were a band of horse thieves Where lire you going kid and whos with you asked one of the men who appeared to be the leader of the gang- I am entirely alone I left Horse shoe Station this morning for a bear hunt and not finding any bears 1 had determined to camp out for the night and wait till morning said I and Just as I was going Into camp a few hundred yards down the creek I heard one of your horses whinnying nnd then I came to your camp Wheres your horse demanded the boss thluf 1 loft him down at the creek I an Bworwl They proposed going nfter the horse but 1 thought that would never do as It would leave me without any means of es ape and 1 accordingly said In hopes to throw them off the track Captain Ill leave my gun here and go down and get my horse and come bath and stay all night But my clever little game did not work at nil as one of the desperadoes spoke up and said Jim and I will go down with you after your horae and you can leave your gun here all the same as youll not need 1t All right 1 replied for I could certainly have done nothing else Come along said one of them and together we went down the creek and soon came to the spot where my horse was tied One of the men unhitched the animal and said Ill lead the Jjorse Very well said I Ive got a cou ple of sage liens here Lead on I picked up the sage hens which I had killed n few hours before nnd followed the man who was leading the horse while his companion brought up the rear The nearer we approach ed the dugout the more I dreaded the Idea of going back among the villain ous cutthroats My first plan of escape having failed I new determined upon another I bad both of my re volvers with me the thieves not hay ing thought it necessary to search me It was now quite dark nnd I purpose ly dropped one ot the sage hens and asked tho man behind me to pick It up While he was hunting for it on the ground I quickly pulled out one of my Colts revolvers and struck him n tremendous blow on too back of the bead knocking him senseless to the I ground I then instantly wheeled around and saw that the man ahead who was only a few feet distant had heard tho blow and had turned to see What was tho matter his hand upon his revolver We faced each other at about tho same instant but before he could fire as he tried to do I shot him dead in his tracks Then jumping on my horse I rode down the creek as fast as possible through the darkness and over tho rough ground and rocks The other outlaws In the dugout having heard the shot which I had fired knew there was trouble and they nil came rushing down the creek I shot Mm dead in his tfracfcs I suppose by the time they reached the man whom I had knocked down that he had recovered and hurriedly told them of what had happened They lid riot stay with the man whom I had shot but came ou in hot pursuit of me They were not mounted and were making better time down through mountain than I was At last they came HO near that I saw that I must abandon my horse 1 Jumped to the ground and gave him a hard slap with the butt of one of my revolvers which started him on down the valley while I scrambled up the mountain side I laid not ascended more than forty feet when I heard my pursuers coming closer and closer I quickly hid behind a large pine tree and in a few moments they all rushed by me being led on by the rattling footsteps of my horse which they heard ahead of them Soon they began firing In the direction of the horse as they no doubt supposed 1 was seat ed on his back As soon as they had passed me I climbed farther up the steep mountain and knowing that I had given them the slip and feeling certain I could keep out of their way I at ohe struck out for Horseshoe Station which was twentyfive miles distant I had very hard traveling at first but upon reaching lower rind bet ter ground I made good headway walking nil night and getting into the station Just before daylight footsore weary nnd generally played out- I Immediately waked up the men of the station and told them of my ad venture Slado himself happened to bo there and he at once organized a party to go out In pursuit of the horse thievesWe n brisk rldo and arrived in the immediate vicinity of the thieves rendezvous at about 10 oclock In tho morning We approached the dugout cautiously but upon getting in close proximity to It we could discover no horses in sight No one was inside and the general appearance of every thing indicated that the place had been deserted that the birds had flown Such indeed proved to be tho case Among one of my earliest acquaint ances was a young man older than myself who was destined to become famed in frontier history while at the same tlmo legendary gossip has caused his career to be somewhat mlsunder stood owing to Its varied character This was James B Hickok who al though his namo was James will live In song and story ns Wild Bill While probably no man In western history had so many notches on his gun it may bo said that no man recorded them oftener in defending right enforcing law nnd dealing Justice In our early youth we wero associ ated In many adventures on the plains In Indian warfare wagon trailing hunting and trapping and we hap pened to be on the same side of the fence when the civil war between the north and tho south left the plains al most alone to the rod man Wild Bill soon became one of the most noted men In tho confidence of the Union generals in the extreme louthweat Ho was a magnificent specimen of manhood and oofthe most deadly shots with rifle or pistol that ever lived In blsen thuslasm as a Union spy he made a detour around down into Texan and back to southwest Missouri und Joined tho Texans under an assumed name nnd accepted service ns a Confederate spy consequently giving himself the double danger of a spys fate There fore by this means he became of im menso service to the Union forces For many months he was confidential secret service pgent for the Con federate forces under General Price in an invasion of Kansas and in one bat tie while among their advance guard he saw n maneuver of which he thought the Union general should be informed He therefore made a dash from the rebel to the opposing lines His action was so sudden that the southerners thought his horse had become unruly The audacity of his movements did not dawn on tKem for a few moments when with yells a squad took up hot pursuit Both ar lutes watched In breathless suspense but always famed for picking superior mounts he quickly distanced all save one who followed close up behind him firing several shots which whistled close to his car Just when HIckoks horse was compelled to vault a small creek he turned in his saddle and with his unerring aim dropped the gallant pursuer from his horse and rode safe ly into the Union lines Here ho de livered his Information to General Plcasonton which turned the tide of the day Probably the most noted event in his career was his single handed fight with Jacob McCandles and his gang of nine men at Hock Creek western Kansas while riding pony express in 1801 This was his first great fight while covering his route armed only with two Colt revolvers Ho halted at Rock Creek Station to find the stock tender dead and his wife excited by his presence As ho approached sheexclaimedMy Bill McCandles and his gang arc in the neighborhood or were this morningI This gang of bandits had been lay Ing a trap for Hickok to get him out of tho way Rushing to the door to remount and get back he saw several heads pop up out of the grass and a bullet struck the door jamb Jumping back and telling the lady to escape he was fortunate to find a loaded rifle left by the husband which the Mc Candles gang did not think of as they saw that Bill was armed only with six shooters There were some raillery and badinage between him and McCandles of a defiant nature when McCandles nnd nine bandits rose and with a yell charged for the door They depended on taking the chance of losing some of their men and made a quick charge Bills instructions were to me in such cases Will al ways get the leader This he did as he fired straight at McCandles the bullet catching him full in the heart and he dropped Instantly By this time the desperadoes were close upon the cabin Jumping aside he emptied the revolvers through the cabin door Four men fell dead besides McCan dIes at this stage of the game Although wounded with buckshot and bullet and struck over the head with a rifle that caused him to bleed at the mouth and nose he still stayed with em At this time as ho told me himself the cabin was filled with smoke and anything he struck or hit was an enemy and In the gloom prob NIne bandits charged for the door ably they assisted him in their de struction But with his faithful bowie knife ho never faltered until all was quiet calm and still for he had struck savage blows following the devils up one side of the room and down the other and Into corners striking and yelling until ho felt sure that every one was down Hlckok was wounded by three bullets and eleven buckshot and cut in thirteen places It was six mouths be fore Wild Bill fully recovered from the results of what was one of the most thrilling exploits in border story one that is not created by tho romancer but is well authenticated that Wild Bill in single handed con filet killed ten men men of the most desperate character The

the office and told of the vast benefits the farmers of the country were receiving through their distribution He refer ral specially to the efficacy of the split log drag as a road builder and maintainer ami read letters from men who had attained the most gratifying results from the use of this simple but effective device Last year the 2000000 miles of poor roads in tho United States cost a vast fortune to the farmers and Incidentally another to the city men the added cost to the farmers of hauling fanii products over the well nigh impassa ble roads being In the end paid by the men who consume them Statistics gathered from the leading countries of Europe prove that tin cost of hauling over the American roads Is far higher than in any other country the average in France Germany and England being 12 cents n ton mile last year to a cost of 25 cent here That difference of 13 cents Is the unnecessary tax burden the Am r- Ican farmer is forced to bear because state and county authorities have long been blind to the benefits which woul follow an awakening tb road impor tanceAs the average length of the haul of all American farm products Is 04 miles it will be seen that every ton hauled cost the farmer who hauled It 122 more than the hauling of n ton of similar products would cost the farmers of England France or Germany Last year nearly 80000000 000000 pounds of farm products were hauled over the country rondsne duce that vast weight to tons charge it 122 a ton nnd it proves an annual loss to the farmer of 52460000 And the saving of that sum would be a trifle of a fraction of the benefits that would come from an immediate construction of perfect roads for It 1If- but a portion of the weight annually hauled over these roads the statistics of the department of commerce and labor after liberal deductions placing the Quantity at approximately 250 000000 tons The saving in the han tiling of that stupendous bulk would be 305500000 annually It has been ascertained also that the construction of model highways in a rural community brings an immediate increase in the value of the property which such roads traverse There are 840000000 acres of farm lands in the United States at the present time Statistics show that the improved road Increase in farm values is from 2 to 9 an acre Were all the acres to benefit even the lowest amount the gain would be 1080000000 wbch might be saved In hauling nnd the total would bo amply large enough to gridiron the length and breadth of the continent with macadam roads as fine as those which have given the fame and wealth to France the land of perfect highways Sales 6000 A Year A splendid business stand store house stock of goods good will etc yearPQstabout 120 per year Three miles from railroad station on

passing of 1908 and the coming of 1909 Rev Lewis said that the New Leaf was turned for man by the divine hand and the acceptance of its appointments was loft solely to the mind and desire of the individ ual While tho bells were ringing out the old year and ringing in the newGods call could be heard directing men in all the walks of life andhe adaed that those who at this serious period of time had not heard the still soft voice were to be pitied Ho further stated that in many cases mans worst fault in 1908 was ho kept his spiritual light turned so low that it failed to shine in Ibis socialandl business circles He emphasized the thought that tho most important work fo all in 1909 was to be fishers of men His tribute to tho memory o1 tho late DrFrancis M Smith was loving and thoughtful Taking Kev Lewis discourse all in all it was refreshing indeed and matle ono feel the New Leaf a great and glorious blessing wWORKTEE EDUCATIONAL REMEDY Beneficial and interesting to the readers of the News especially the teachers and pupils is the Educational Column wo have just opened Supt Joel H Pile who answers every beck and call of the countys schoolswill gather the material and we hope its publication Will tend to start a strong and steady work for perfect schools in Breckinridgo It is deplorable to hear of a childs school attendance n one term limited to three days This fact was in Supt Piles notes last week It is distressing to see the number of boys and girls between the ages of fourteen and twenty years absent from school in Clovorport Who ore responsible for this neglect of opportunities Not thoteachors we dare say but the parents and tho pupils Workjis tho only remedy and every parent knows it must begin at homo Itlis hard for a child to leave the bright warm fire and go- out on the cold bleak roads to the school house when ho cannot see the advantage that awaits him in an education Shall we let him sit with his toes in the ashes and then when the fire has gone out and the powers of youth have slipped away listen to his reproach Why didnt you make me study I was too young to understand the use of know ledge There aromany parents who have heard the reproof and others who willhear it unless they put a foot foremost to keep their children in school To our minds there will be no decided onlightment unless more school work takes place in tho homes To keep a childs attention on his studies means constant efforts on tho part of the mother and father and not until they make every advancement for the children will this young generation be trained properly True many parents ate ignorant themselves and know not the value of in iprmationHbutthose realizing it should work without ceasing to see what good thoj can do for those who dwell in such pitiful darkness We urge the teachers and parents to give Supt Pile their cooperation in everyway if they do Breckinridgo will progress with the rest of Kentucky in educational development GARFIELD

Graydons first visit to the place weeks after their return td Non York He had not felt friendly to Droom since tho day at the prison but now he was forgetting his resent ment In tho determination to wrest from him the names of Janes father and mother He was confident that the old man knew Better than Wells street ch Well you see I was In trade then Different now Im getting to bo quite a fop Do you notice that I say By Jove occasionally He gave his raucous laugh of derision Dined at Sherry tho other night old chap he went or with raw mimicry They thought 11 was a Christian and let me In I use to look like the devil you know By the Lord Harry Elias cried Graydon you look like the devil now Ive got these carpet slippers on be cause my shoes hurt my feet ex plalned Droom sourly My collar rubbed my neck so I took it off Other wise Im Just as I was when I got In at Sherrys Funny what a difference n little thing like a collar makes Isnt It I should say so I never gave it n thought until

GraydonIt hard to read your mind these days What do you hear from her Graydon went back to the subject after n few moments I am morally certain that I know who her father and mother were but It wont do any good to tell her Hows your father After this night Graydon saw the old man often They dined together occasionally In tho small cafes on the west side Droom could not for some reason known only to himself be In duced to go to Sherrys again When Jane comes back Ill give you both a quiet little supper there after the play maybe Itll be my treat my boy The old matt worked patiently andI fruitlessly over his inventions They came to naught but they lightened his I otherwise barren existence There was not a day or night In which his mind j was wholly free from thoughts of James Bansemcr counted the weeks and days un IlIO man would bo free and his eyes with these furtive glances into the future Ho felt in his heart that James Bansemer would come to him at once and that the reckoning for his single hour of triumph would bo a heavy one to pay Sometimes he would sit for hours with his eyes staring at the Napoleon above the bookcase something like dread in their depths Then again ho would laugh with glee pound the table with his bony hand much to the consternation of Chang and exclaim as if addressing a multi tude I hope Ill be dead when ho gets out of there I hope I wont live to I see him free again That would spoil 1 everything Lot me see Im soventy one now I surely cant live much longer I want to die seeing him as I saw him that day The last thing I think of on earth must bo James Ban seiners face behind the bars Ha ha halI It was worth all the years that one hour It was even worth while being his slave Im not afraid of him Nol Thats ridiculous Of course Im not afraid of him I only want to know bos lying In a cell when I die out here In tho great free world By my soul hell know that a handsome taco isnt always tho best He laugh tdat my face curse him His taco won her hlc good looksI Well well woll I only hope shes where she can ace ids face nowI Ho would work himself Into a frenzy of torment and glee combined usually collapsing sit the end of Ills harangue It disgusted him to think that his health was to good that he might be expected to live beyond the limit of James Bansemers imprisonment At the end of eighteen months Jano was coming home She had written
