IRSTof all, contompiato for
a moment tho bcoiio upon
which tho ovonts I am about to
narrate took placo: Tho pam
pas of Patagonia, limitless
IcaguoB of harsh grass, of
thorn, of gTanlto pobblo and of
black baaaltla rock. Upon tho
Atlantic rim of those mighty
plains a fow sheep and cuttlo
farms oxlst, a few sottlomonts
such ns Santa Cruz and Gal-
legos; In tho far Interior a
fow Tehuolcho Indians lead tholr nomadic life.
Otherwise the pnmpas throughout nil their
enormous extont nro given over to bird nnd boast,
utid upon them Is carried out a perpetual wurfnro.
Hugo condors, measuring as much ns eleven feet
ncrosH their wings, hawk-llko cbitnnngos and
coranchos, pumas, hoary dogs, Magellan wolves,
carrion-caters nnd creatures of prey exist in almost
inconceivable numbers.
Traveling through this country, ono Is forced to

his brldlo upon tho ground for tho night and all
tho leathern parts of It will havo been devoured by
morning. This Is tho work of tho hoary dogs or
tho Mngollan wolves.
It is easy for a murderer to get rid of all trnco of
his victim upon tho pampas. A shot at twilight.
a body lying stripped of its clothes, nnd two hourB
aftor dawn thero will be nothing snvo a fow bones
to toll that tho deed has boon dono.
Ascenslo Ilrunol, tho wild man of Santa Cruz,
was by 'birth a wlas, but in very enrly years his
parents emigrated to Argontina, nnd whllo still a
young man ho broke away from them, nnd with his
brother, whom I know but whoso namo I forgot,
worked his way south until ho came at last to tho
Sunta Cruz province of Patagonia. Hero for somo
years ho nnd his brothor, whom wo will call Henri,
worked ob pcones, cattlohordlng nnd sheep-tending,
but, growing In tlmo wenry of tho
unoxclting nature of their calling, nt

Now a horse-tamer In Patagonia

thoy beenmo tho owners of a comparatively largo
troop of horses. Asconalo, though a savage and
merciless rldor, novor during nil this tlmo gnvo

At length the two brothers happened, In tho
natural com so of their nomadic profession, to

anything from a large residence to a mud hovel

Thq farmer gave tho brothers a horse-breaking
contract and for aomo weeks nil wont well.
Ono oVbtiing when tho farmer, tired from a long
day In tho saddlo, had Just como home, Ascenslo
lirunol entered, and having, It la anid, put him off
his guard by making somo alinplo llttlo request,
murdered him In cold blood.
Tho actual details of this, Asconsio'B first, mur
der nro hard to como by. Henri, whom 1 mot
near Ultima Casa, novor told tho snmo Btory twlco

tho murdered man, passed through Bomo terrlblo

Tho main fact'romalns:

might carry off his wlfo, which he did, besides
driving tho whole stock, tho cnttlo, shoop nnd
horses of tho dead man, Into tho heart of the

first It had boon In his mind to kill him In his
Bleop, but for their mother's snko ho had ro

and stock to n safe distance, and that If Ilonrl fol
lowed ho would unhosltatlngly shoot him down.
Ho then rode away without more words.
Ab Honrl had nolthor horso nor weapons ho did
not follow. Indeed all his efforts woro directed
toward getting out of tho wlldornosa allvo Living
chiefly upon berries, ho wandered for many duya.

Somebody durlnR the courso of an inter
view nhvays thinks to ask that crazy
"How do you expect to put in your time,
Mrs. So. and So, whllo you are attending
Hie convention?"
And the Interviewed usually tries to
frame up somo elaborate reply. The ques
tion was duly put up to Mrs. William E.
Uornh, wife of the sonntor from Iditlio,
on her arrival, and right off tho bat she
"The first thins I mean to do is to
straighten up this room. I thought I'd
try to make It look ns if a woman ever
Baw it. You never saw such n. looking
'place as It was when I got In. Papers
papers everywhere; and books! I'm al
ways afraid to move ono far, for If I do
Mr Dorah can't find it.
"I was In California and ho telegraphed
me to come to be with him. Well, I haven't
seen 1dm but about ten minutes. I think
le forgot I was here. Ho went down to tho
barber shop this morning nnd I wont
down to meet him for breakfast. Wo
catno together in Peacock alley, and I
don't think ho recognized me. I stepped
up to him and ho looked nt mo as much
as to say, 'Where havo I seen her be
fore?' "
Deserted Wives Retaliate.
Much dissatisfaction Is expressed by tho
wives of politicians here assombled for
the convention because thyo haven't seen
their husbands for two weeks.
'What do you think of such nnd such a.
measure, Mrs. Hcyward?" asked Borne
one of tho pretty young women In her big
suite overlooking the lake.
"Gracious me, I haven't seen my hus
band slnco that came up. Don't come to
me for nny news of tho convention. When
I hear It It will be stale Indeed."
In retaliation tho women havo Insti
tuted what might bo mildly called a boy
'cott. They havo appropriated tho ma
chine rented by the politicians for their
stny In Chicago and have scattered to tho
four winds. Mrs. William Hayward, In
tho temporary family car, took her small
son. Leland. to the South Shore country
club for the day and evening. Mrs. Vic
tor Itosewater went on a sightseeing tour
from 9 In tho morning until well bond
dinner time. The latest seen of David
Mulvane he was wondering wildly where
his wife was. Mrs. Joseph Keallng went
out Into tho suburbs "where she would
havo some one to talk to It was lonely
to be alone In a big ohtcl."
Mrs. Joseph DIvon nnd her largo family
had no complaint to offer and remained
"on the Job." She and the little Dlxons,
Including tho 2-year-old Betty and Mary
Joe. who Is 5, entertained a reporter for
more than an hour. It was extraordinar
ily fine entertainment, too, and led to tho
formulation of an axiom. "Simpler Is It
to manage a presidential campaign than
to bring up ono Mary Joe."
Envies Chicago Policemen.
"I can't think of anything that I would
like to do more than to bo a policeman
In Chicago," Mrs. Sarah I-'. Bond of
Oklahoma City, whoro she has been po
llco matron, patrolman nnd deputy sheriff
nnd had n. uniform, too, mado this wish
from a fund of experience. Sho Is hero
to nttend the Republican national conven
tion, tnough not a delogate. Sho fears
that tho proposed suffrago plank will
never bo nailed on tho platform.
"Wo havo to get suffrago,' sell Insisted.
'It's tho first wedgo for redemption."
Mrs. Bond has been pollco matron and
deputy sheriff In Oklnhoma City threo
times. Tho first tlmo was when It was a
fierce young town.
"Then they hnd nlnety-threo saloons,
and killed their man dally," she said.
"The Republican party ought to know,"
said Mrs. Bond, "that tho party that
gives women tho votes Is tho coming par
ty." Governor Stubbs Stumped.
Governor Stubbs was remarking on tho
serious nature of tho crlmo of delegate
'Why, don't you know that It's an bad
ns stealing horses," said tho governor.
'Delegates or horses. It's all one.'
"But don't you know that It was Col
onel Roosevelt who Invented tho steamer
roller" asked tho man addressed. t'Don't
you kno wthat he took all tho delegates
In sight that way?"
Kor a motnont Governor Stubbs seemed
at a losd for an answer. -.
"No. I don't," ho nnally said. "This la
my first convention."
Green and Orange Decorations.
"An Irishman picked It!"
That's tho never-fnlllng exclamation
when a Republican convention delegate
enters the holy of holies where the na
tlonal committee sits.
By "It" ho means tho color schome.
Green walls, green matting, green furni
ture, green palms and ferns aro scon, and
last, but by no means least, tho greon
bound lists of contests.
All but the celling. That's orange.
"That son of Erin must have como from
the north country," was tho caustic com
ment mado by one Irish delegate. "Tho
Idea of picking green nnd orangol"
ghost may find his way upon his long tinrk Jour
noy. Aftor that thoy light no more Area, aB they
consider that thd dend man haa had tlmo to finish
his Journey.
Whether Aacenslo grow deranged suddenly or
whothor It was a Blow and gradual process, no
ono can over know, yet tho fact remains that ho
camo to bcliovo In tho religion of tho Indians
with somo variations and startling effects of hla
own. Believing, ns ho did, that death was only a
road by which man passed into a longer nnd more
enduring, though not neccasarily an eternal life,
ho conceived tho Idea of building up a fortune
for himself In that futuro life.
In Asccnslo's diseased brain thero aroso tho
idea that whatever ho slow In this world would
bo his property in tho next. On that point ho
was a mnninc; on all others, perfectly Bane. Now
beg.nn tho sorles of thofts which mado Brunei's
namo known from tho Rio Negro to tho Magellan
atraita. Ono aftor another ho raided tho horso
farms near tho const, drovo away bb much of tho
stock aB ho could,, nnd, shaking off his pursuers
in every instanco, escaped into tho wildest parts
of tho pampas,
So for a long time, for years Indeed, Ascenslo
Brunei, tho Wild Man of Santa Cruz, lived his
llfo boyond tho reach of tho Bhort arm of the Ar
gentlno law. ComaBarloa hunted him, various
Juocoa do Paz declaimed about him, and tho garri
son of cavalry In Chubut "bolted their beef, and
started again on tho track of the thief." And
then suddenly, ono morning, tho news flew acroBs
tho countrysldo that tho Wild Man had been cap
tured. It was true. Tho way of It was as fol
lows: In tho very heart of Patagonia, upon the banks
of a rlvor called the Mayo, lived, and lndocd etlll
live, a trlbo of Tehuelcho Indians, tho tallost and
perhaps tho strongest people on earth. They are
hunters and horso-breeders, wonderful rldora nnd
good men. Thoy worship horsemanship and have
a number of atrango rltoa which thoy practlco at
tho birth of a man child In order to lnsuro thnt
ho shall turn out a good ildor
Into tho nature of those rltea wo need not go.
Thoy are very cruol. I merely mention thorn
that you may understand what a task the Wild
Man sot himself when ho decided to stenl n hun
dred mnrcs from men such ns theso poorioss rld
ora, trained In every phnso of horsemanship, much
of whoBo lives la Bpont in sonrchlng for strayed
horses and who can rldo a hundred miles a day
without fatlguo.
It nppuora that tho herd of maros that Ascenslo
atolo woro feeding In a voga or marsh thnt
Btrotchea on the southom banks of tho Mayo. No
ono was watching thorn, and, ns thoy woro woll
uaod to tholr paaturago, It seemed unlikely that
thoy would stray. Therefore, when shortly after
dawn an Indian lad came galloping to tho toldos
with the nowB that tho narea hnd disappeared, tho
men of tho tribe woro soon on horseback nnd rid
ing upon tholr trail.
Haul on (he trail tho Indians rodo nil day, and
before sunset they were nware of a man clad In
sklus driving the mnros boforo him. Swiftly somo
of tho pursuers closed In on him, whllo others rodo
to cut him off by a canndon or rift, in tho pampas
which luy acrosB his path. Hnd it not -beon for
thla canndon tho Wild Man would uovor. In all
probability, havo been taken.
Ab It was, ho galloped down tho shcor wall of it,
hut only to find hlniBolf cut off by tho IndlnnB who
hnd heed detached 'from tho main body by tho
caclquo for tho purpose Hiding In upon hltn tho
IndlnnB flung their heavy bolcnndores tho
Tohuelcho weapon of threo rnwhldo thongs, each
weighted at tho end with a hall of stone which
entnnglod tho logs of tho Wild Man's horso and
brought It crashing toba ground. On tho ground
tho Indiana captured tho Wild Man, snarling and
They dla ot slny tho Wild Man, but bound him
upon a horso and conveyed hlra over threo hun
dred mllea of pampas to Gallegos, whore, they
handed him over to the authorities in duo form.
Ho wns thrown into prison and tho Indians de
parted for their wildernesa homo onco more.
In the Argentine Republic thero Is no capital
punishment, so that after his trial, tho sentence
that would bo passed upon tho Wild Man waa cer
tain penal servitude for llfo.
But It never camo to a trial, for It was not long
before the warders of tho prison awoko ono morn
ing to find their prisoner gone. He had cut his
way out through thp walla of wood, Btolen a horso
that had been tied by somo Into vialtor boforo
tho door of a house In the main street, ridden
through tho night until, at dawn, ho found him
solf fnr out mfon tho pampas.
All along this belt of country from Gallegos to
Santa Cruz are scattered farms set nlong the coast
at frequont Intervals. The Wild Man turned north
and, on tho second day of his escape, caught a
stole a horse from ono of these farms and .
rodo on up the coast. While tho ordinary traveler
dismisses tho horso which has borne him gallantly
and well with a pat and a kind word, the Wild
Man, each tlmo he procured a fresh mount, re
turned to his tired nnd weary beast and killed It.
And then ono night, before tho Indians had
even heard of his escape from Jail, once more
ho raided tholr mares and drovo away a great
troop of them. His intention doubtlesB was to
get them to some sultabio spot and thore kill
them, thereby gratifying his own peculiar and
bloody-minded beliefs, and at the same tlmo re
venging himself upon the Indians.
The Instant they discovered their loss the
Indians rode on the trail of the mares, but
thla, tlmo Ascenslo drove them like a madman, as
indeed he was.
Tho sun waB already falling toward tho weal
when they spied him at last. He waa nearly
naked, for ho had flung away tho clothes which
had been supplied to him id the jail, and waa
mounted upon a gigantic horse. A3 he rode,
he uttered a cry of a lion, and the fronzled and
terrified mnros galloped wildly In front of him.
Tho sun aank and tho chnse continued. Ono
by ono tho Tehuolchoa dropped away until nt last
tho Wild Man and a single Indian alone remnlned.
Now tho moon was In tho sky and by Its light tho
Indian Baw tho Wild Mnn slacken his paco and,
with fentures convulsed with rngo and hate, turn
at bay. Tho Indian grew afraid and paused.
They looked at each other for a moment and
then the Wild Man laughed aloud and, turning his
great yellow horse, rode slowly to the west,
whllo tho Indian returned to his companions,
whom he rejoined on tho following day.
Near tin Cordillera of tho Andes an adven
turous Gorman sottlor had squatted with hla fam
ily, and had built himself a small houso or hut
Ono, night tho German was awakonod by a knock
ing at th'o door and opened It to find a man clad
In skins facing him.
The man nppenrod to bo emaciated and was
certnlnly of tho most extraordinary appearance,
his whole face being blackened by an aimosi
continuous growth of hair
Tho man demanded food, whereupon tho Ger
mnn Invited him to enter nnd. taking a frying
pan, commonced to cook some meat. As ho bent
ovor tho llro tho Wild Man, with senseless nnd
brutnl cruolty, shot him through tho back and,
helping himself to various provisions, loft tho
houso nnd the dead man lying In It.
Tho news of this crjmo nnd 6f others, which
followed closo upon it, aroused tho wholo dis
trict. Nolthor man nor woman could feel safe
whllo the Wild Man lived, and nt last a body of
armed Bottlers ran tho criminal to earth in a
houso which he had entered for purposes of
plunder. He never left that houso allvo, but fell
on tho threshold tlddlcd with bullets, yet not be
foro he hnd loft hU mark upon more than ono of
his assatlauta.
Thayer's Mountain Lion.
A new ono has bene uncovered about
Colonel Edward Thayer of Indianapolis,
nsslstant sergeant at arms nt tho Coli
seum. The colonel hnd a near adventure
with a near mountain lion, and, tnko It
from him, It was a thriller.
"Colonel Ed" has a bungalow In Ari
zona. Ho started for tho woodhouso ono
evening to get a back log for his fire.
Hero's tho rest of the story' as he tells
"When I got to the shanty I started
to feel around for tho lock on tho thing.
I put my hand on something that was
nllve. Every hair on my head stood
straight up and I don't know now why
I didn't let loso a yell that could bo
heard In Maine.
"I thought of mountain lions first then
panthers, wildcats, wolves and In fact ev
erything In tho wild west chased ttself
through my mind. I scuttled back to tho
house without the log and couldn't rest all

ment. Nobody could miss him If told to
look for that hat. Governor Stubbs may
bo found beneath a funny little white felt

a state executive
There aro at least twenty Texan som
breros, each having exactly tho same
kind of a little strap around them and
tho same kind of a brown and be-mus-tached
faco beneath them. Also, there
Is Colonel Younger, from Alabama,
whoso hat looks as belligerent as Its own

mouth, which Is about as often as any
self-respecting person would deslro to lose
his hat.
Looking for Taft Money.
The corpulent man who looks llko Taft.
talks Roosevelt and exhibits monoy In
peck measure lots Is Major Thomas Dun-
phy of Topeka. Kan.
Ho took tils stand in me miuaiu i mo
Congress hotel lobby and began offering
to wager money on Roosevelt's chances
of nomination. He wanted to bet any
figure, from $1 up to $50,000.
Major Dunphy Isn't a delegate to tho
convention. Ho simply Is a Roosevelt
advocate at large.
"I'd like to bet this roll on Colonod
Roosevelt's chances of being nominated
nnd elected." said the major, exhibiting
tho Interior of a pocket that might have
been n section of a subtreasury.
Tho Interviewer suggested that he might
be prevailed upon to take n little If tho
bet .was broken up Into car faro lots.
"Say, this Is no Joking matter," said
the Indignant Roosevelt man, 'I came all
tho way from Topeka nnd I am going to
find some barker of tho president with
sand enough to take It."
So he stuniped away In high dudgeon.
Keallng Picked the Winner.
Taft headquarters at tho Congress hotel
resolved Itself Into a baseball grandstand
nnd 'tho occupants devoted themselves to
watching an International contest on tho

A team of Italians from the Gault court
district clashed with n picked nine from
tho West Side. Numerous bets Hew back
nnd forth between spectators of the game
and excitement ran high when tho gamo
neared an end. After It was all over and
the bets wCre paid Joseph Keallng had
amassed n largo Btack of Taft buttons
and emblems. He says ho can pick a
winner In tho national contest Just as
easily as he did In the ball game.

No "Photos for Niedrlnghaus.
Thomns K. Niedrlnghaus of Missouri

"No, sir, I will not stand for my photo
