AN OLD ALUJAMA FEUD.
THE SPEEDY JVSTICE TO A DES
How Hart Adieu tiled Nuiarrom l ow-
ardlj Mardcn by Man Who. Sup- ,

i m Violent Iteath.
In 1315 there lived in Southern Ala
bama two planters who-te land joined
and lay ia that fertile delta between
the Tombigby and Alabama rivers.
TiaJr names were respectively Adams
and Doran. Burton Adams was gener
ally regarded as a dangerous man,
ready to cut or shoot on slight provo
cation, but it was believed by his
neighbors that his evil temper and bud
habits were fostered and aggravated
by his wife's teaching and example.
She was at strife with, all the families
around and bad no associates. Espec
ially did she hate the Doi-ans. The ro
were three brothers of this name and
they and Adams had been schoolboys
together and they did their best to
maintain friendty relations with their
quarrelsome neighbor, but the trouble
came at last
On a visit to Mobile Mrs. Adams
mot two of the Doran sisters in a large
millinery establishment. Kcgardless
of the public charaoter of the place
she gave the. two . ladies a vulgar
tongue-lashing and was at once ejected
by the proprietor. Wild with rage
the woman. looked up her husband.
Between drink and his wife's provo
cation Adams scarce knew what he
was doing. lie attacked the store
keeper with a knife and cut him fear
fully and .then mounted his horse and
rapidly rode away.
The Domns were at ouco warned,
and towards evening Pierce, the old
est brother, accompanied by several
well-armed friends, started for home.
Tho road ran by the river bank and
was bordered by dense shrubbery.
Pierce was abend, and suddenly n gun
cracked and he dropped from his sad
dle. His friends rode into the thicket,
but saw no one until a negro servant
called out: "There he goes!" Sure
enough, Burt Adams, on his big sorrel,
was galloping away up the river road,
lie was closely followed and at the
cry of ''horse thief a number of peo
ple ahead drew up across tho road and
turned the fugitive.
The Alabama river was in flood, the
current running like a mill race, and
full of driftwood, but the murderer did
not hesitate to plunge in. Before he
was fifty yards away his pursuers were
on the bank, and under a volley of
rifle balls Adams went under. His
horse made a struggle, but whs swept
away; but nothing was seen of the
rider. "A good riddance," was the
general verdict. Pierce Down had a
fight for life, but finally recovered. ;
Mrs. Adams had always been a cruel
mistress, but now her wickedness knew
no restraint Her servant wero beaten
and mutilated until her neighbors be
came indignant and protested, but in
vain. At length the end came. One
night in December the sky was lit by
a red glow and it was known that tbe
fire wns at the Adms pluntation.
When the neighbor enlloped up the
mansion wes glowing like a furnace
and tho negroes wero all shut up in
their quarters, und tho only answer
they made to the Inquiries of the
whitos was: "Fo' de Lord, Mnssa, we
don't know nuthin1 'bout it." No one
doubted but that the woman had been
murdered by her outraged bondsmen
and the house fired.
There were no witnesses but negroes,
and they wero not com potent to testify,
and so the matter ended. The planta
tion and hands were sold imder a mort
gage held by one of the Mobile banks,
and bought by Bainos Doran, who
built a new house and moved there
with his family. This was two years
after the killing of Adams.
One day a servant brought Mr. Doran
a paper he had found on the house
porch. It was addressed to Barnes
Doran and warned him to leave the old
Adams plantation, as the writer was
resolved to avenge Burt Adams' death,
nnd would kill any one living on his
lands. There was no signature, but
Dornn made investigations Hnd found
th t one of his negroes who had buea
a slave of Adams', had left the planta
tion that morning. Going to his over
seer Doran said: 'Here, Jonas, got a
horse; take tMs note to Constable
Duffy, and stop at Beimou's and tell
him to curou at once and bring two of
bis bet di)','s." .Anoiher mesngor
whs sent to ssverrtl of the neighbor
nnd inside of two hour a putty of six
armed men crowd the river. A rout
of Sam's wtia produced and snuffed at
by the dugs aud, held In hand by the
tracker Bnison, thoy entered tho

MliiUlnpi ktnte line, but there were
numerous hog tr.ieln, and Into ono of
tint o the tluj turned, iui't to the
ground. An hour's walk brought them
to n smalt clearing, in which stood a
low, log cabin, Suioka was coming
out of tbe rhlmney at tho end. "I

brave Utile lrUhmn. "thU U Bailey's

ened and told all.
Although wounded Adams bad clung
to a Hosting log in the river and
reached tho opposite sido tiueon. lie
then made his way to Bailey's, a local
desperado of the worst type, and here
remained until bis wound healed. He
knew Bailey well and distrusted him.
and took means to insure his silence
by shooting him through the head at
the first favorable opjiortunity, nnd
then m ule his way to the -Low or Mis
Ilearlii'f of the death of his wife and
the loss of his property he became
desperate and returned to Alabama
with the determination to kill every
Dornn on sight, nnd bo found in his
old slave a faithful nnd efllciout co
ndjutor, who was now awaiting his
coming. : Benson nn 1 the dogs were
sent away, the negro was threatened
with death if bo gave un alarm, nnd
tho party set themselves to watch
through tbe chinks in the logs.
After two hours' watch one of the
parly gave a "hist, here ho comes,"
and a tall m m came trolling through
the clearing, mounted on a big bay.
It was Adam, sure enough. Ho gave
a low whistle, and muttering t him
self, dismounted, hid bis hore and
pushed open tbe puncheon door. Duffy
was behind it and al once seized him.
"Burt Adams, you are my prisoner in
the name of the Slut of Alabama."
In a flash the outlaw's bowlo was
out nnl the constable rccolvel a
deadly thrust. The others nt once
pitched in, but Adams fought like a
tiger, and it was not until he had
been thrice shot through the body
that he dropped. He uttered no word,
but looked at bis captors with a wild
glare, aud making a threatening gest
ure with his hand, gave a shudder and

The fashion of letting the beard
grow as a protection to the throat was
never, It seems to me, so general ai It
was last winter, says the New York
Star. The addition makes a wonder

some faces. I heard a lawyer tell a
story last winter that illustrates that
"Vou will notice," he said to a party
of friends, "that I have quite a
strong growth of beard. I stopped
shaving early in October. The other
day I wns riding on the front platform
of a car, as 1 was smoking, and among
the passengers who got on board wa
u cousin of mine, her husband, and
their young baOy. I hal not seeu tho
lady since the day she was married,
in the summer of 1889, and the hus

did not return tho1 ralutatiou. I
repeated it. but still there was no
response. Being convinced that sho

some (un, so I kept smiling at and
nodding to her. She began to be evi
dently disconcerted, and in n few min

to her husband. After the talk the
gentleman left his teat nnd went to
the rear platform, when he spoke
excitedly to the conductor. That
worthy camo through tho car, i;nJ,
opening the front door, nuid to me:

A writer for the New York Ledger
thus describe bis first kangaroo hunt:
'In my first kangaroo hunt I came very
near 'losing the number of my mea.'
Mr friend had a pack of kungaroo
dogs that were considered tho best in
that part of the country; they were
bred and trained for that purpose just
as fox-hounds are bred and trained in
your part of the world. We were
mounted on two of the best horses on
the station, and had two blacks along
also well mounted, their business be
ing to tuke charge of the dogs and
make themselves useful. A black was
sent out two or three hours ahead of
tis to locate a group of kangaroos and
meet us st a designated point.
"We met him as agreed, and he in
dicated where some kangaroos wero
feeding, u little distance beyond a
clump of trees which ho pointed out
We went along very quietly, using the
trees as a screen, and managed to get
within a quarter of a mile of them be
fore they saw us. Then they stood on
their hind legs and took a good look
at us, and then they jumped os though
on electric battery hud been turned on
"We started the dogs, and it was a
harp race between them and the kan
garoos, the latter having Bucb a good
start that the dogs didn't seem to have
much of a show. We had roused up a
kangaroo family of seven in all, the
younger being a "joey" that was soon
overtaken by tho dogs und killed. J ho
bead of tho family was an "old man,"
a wo oall the full-grown males, and
he was a fine fellow, standing-nearly
six feet high.
"The 'old rarta' led off ,as though
he had started to win tin Melbourne
cup, and his leaps seemed to be 30 or
forty feet long, but, of course, wero
not Ho went over the ordinary cat
tle fences as though they were so
many straws, and tho rest of them did
the same, all save another joey that
came to grief und wus disposed of by
tho dog as the first o.io had been.
The killing of the joeys delayed things
so much that the dogs had not yet got
up to the old man when ho reached a
water-hole nnd I realized the dangers
of a kangaroo hunt.
"The old man was In the water, up
to his neck, und the dogs wero swim
mlng around or standing at the edge
of tho hole as we came up. We came
on ut full speed, and my horse stopped
so short at the edge of the water that
I wus pitched over his head right into
the pool. The impetus carried mo a
good distance forward, und as the
water-hole was a small one I was
within a few feet of the kangaroo,
who was standing at bny, ready to
light to the last. He made for roe at
"When a kangaroo Is pursued and
can get to water he has men and dogs
at an advantage. I'he experienced
dogs know enough to keep out of his
reach, but the young ones uro apt to,
vonturo too near, and are suddenly
seized In the creature's forelegs, which
servo him for arms, lie holds the
docs under water till he drowns them,
or ho may rip. them open with his hind
leg, which has a powerful claw in
front; this claw can inflict a fatd
wound at a single blow, and very oi'ton
in a hunt one or more of the dogs are
apt to be killed by it Whon he can
not get to water, the kangaroo places
his b.ick against the largest tree he
cun find and defends himself with a
bravery that is worthy of admiration.
It is dangerous for dogs or men to
venture within his reach at this time,
and if his hunters are unprovided
with firearms, the fight may last for
soino time and quite likely result in
favor of the kanzaroo.
'Tho kangaroo reached me with his
fore paws, but before he could grasp
mo one of the dogs hud him by tho
throat d diverted his attention long
enough to t-naijlo me to gel out of tho
way with tho aid of one of tho blacks,
who jumped into th pool almost us

water was about four feel deep, i nd i
