BTAKTIO AN AVALANCHE.
Is It true that the sound of the hu
man voice may start a snowsllde? Jan.
Ferchard, clcik of the state court of
appeals. Is Inclined to gimer the ques
tion In the affirmative. He has for 20
years past been almost of the belief
that a word of farewell which he
shouted In one of the mountain canyons
cost the lives of two persons.
"I never think of the event without
a shudder," said Mr. Vtri hard. "I was
mining at the time In the region above
Georgetown. The snow had fallen to j
an unusual depth that winter, and mln- (
ers moving from one cabin to another
were warned to look out for slides. 1

with him, but I felt nervous and impa
tient for some reason, and declined as
politely as possible the kind invitation.
X arose from the table, and, without de
lay, stared on my jou. noy. Crossing the
canyon I turned to wave a farewell to
the friends who had entertained me.
The man and his wife were standing at
the door of the cabin and a third per
son was In the houBe. The air was per
fectly still. Not the slightest Intima
tion was given of the awful disaster
which was about to happen. I waved
my hand and shouted, 'Goodby.'
'Hardly had the echoes of my voice
died away hefote a mufiled sound
struck the ear a noise like the boom
of a cannon and the whole side of the
mountain seemed to be In motion. The
now, ice, trees and rocks started to
ward the bottom of the gulch, and
within five seconds the cabin was over
whelmed and the spot on which I had
stood one or two minutes before was
burled under fifty feet of snow. I sum
moned assistance as quickly as It could
be done, and we frantically dug out two
dead bodies. The third pet son after
ward recovered, but I have never en.
tlreiy forgiven myself for the word
which I shouted on that never-to-be-forgotten
whoop clear back to the transports,
t'retty soon along came another Maus
er and raised a blister Jin-t about the
size of a lead-pencil clear across his
chest. I understand they heard 'l'el's'
whoop In Santiago about that time.
Then along came a third one of those
'leaden messengers' and this time It
catches 'Pet' In the side. Of course,
this Jridlan goes over like he'd stepped
on a live wire. Hut he comes to pretty
quick and he patc hes the hole up with
one of those fancy bandages and gets
up on the flrin' line. Hut Teddy gets
on to him, through seeln' him bowled
over, and orders him to the hospital.
'IYt' says 'Yes, sir,' as meek as Moses,
drops back a little, and then makes a
quick sneak for the flrin' line. Hut
pretty soon he gets warmed up like and

gets on to him again, an' this time

Teddy, tryin' to look fierce. 'Discharged

at Jilockhouse No. 2, north of Mani'a.
At half-past 6 In the evening Private
Smith went on picket duty. His beat
was one of the most dangerous patrolled
by American soldiers, passing along a
narrow road thickly fringed with trees
and bamboo thickets.
Shortly after 7 o'clock, the sun having
set, Private Smith discerned two Filipi

their way to Manila. They were
dressed In white and walked in single

promptly, the first greeting him with
the words, "Buena noche, amlgo"

repeated the greeting and accompanied
it with a military salute. Smith re

"I am afraid that I once spoiled a

"We had gotten out an expensive re

"Among the numerous applicants was
a tail, lanky youth. I asked him if he

aid that he reckoned he could.
m Very well,' said I, Til see what you

that I am your intended victim. The
price of the book runs from 2 to H. but

selling me a book I will hire you. Now

the young people much; they were too
far gone. When the rough riders were
ordered north 'Pet' went with them,
of course. But the girl had his promise
to come back. And back he went the
minute he was mustered out.
"When 'Pet' arrived and demanded
the girl the old man refused flatfooted.
Pretty soon after that he died sudden

with his boots on. There were also
those who said harsh things about his

did not bother "Pet." He had been there
himself. He and the girl borrowed a
name apiece, and got to New York
all right. There they were married.
They missed a train or something In
Chicago, and had to stay there over
nleht. That's where you missed a good
story, my boy. They went straight to
the Chickasaw nation, and they are
living there now on a ranch. They
stick pretty close to home. I guess the

Moval Occupation in tha West For
the Now Woman.
Two women are ln Jail ln western
States on a charge of being bandits.
One of them made a desperate resist
ance to the posse sent to arrest her,
and killed a deputy sheriff before she
was shot down herself and captured in
a badly wounded condition. The other
prisoner was secured in more prosalo
mannf r, but her record is none the less
tragic and Interesting.
Emma Hendrickson, a girl of 18 years,
is confined ln prison in Stoddard coun
ty, Missouri, suffering from a severe
p-ffle wound In her breast. Her story,
according to the reports made by tne
law officers, Is almost equal to that of
Jesse James. She isn't pretty. She
was born on a cattle ranch. Book learn
ing she has none. But she's at home ln
the saddle and handy with a gun. She
never misfes her mark, and when she
shoots at a man she shoots to kill. She
killed Deputy Sheriff Booth of Stoddard
county, Missouri, two weeks ago.
A year ago, In Franklin county, Mis
souri, she and her father are accused
of having organized a counterfeiting
eang. It had twenty members, each
with a price on his head. The girl of
18 was the leader; her father was her
chief lieutenant. At first they operated
in Franklin county. They stole horses
and cattle, looted country stores, held
up travelers, rifled postofflces, and
finally, ln one of their many pitched
battles, killed three men.
Then the gang separated into squads
and met later ln a designated place In
c-ia ommtv. The new scene of
operations was well chosen. The coun
try was rich. The bandits, however,
became so reckless that the county au
thorities easily located them.
A week ago the sheriff, at the head of
a score of armed men, rode out of
Bloomfleld, the county peat, to storm
the outlaws In their camp. He located
them ln an Isolated house a few miles
from Dexter. The sheriff and his men
did not ride out Into the open In mak
ing their attack. They knew the char
acter of the outlaws too well for that.
Instead, they scattered and surrounded
the house. As they did so rifles began
to bark from the windows and loop
boles ln the house. They were answer
ed from behind trees and a rail fence
that zigzagged round the clearing. The
fusilade kept up for two hours.
There were, nine desperadoes In the
fcouse attacked by a determined posse
of twenty men. The outlaws had lit
tle ammunition left. The fight was get
ting more uneven every minute. Then
the daring of the bandit queen asserted
Placing herself at the head of her
