Hm Bruner, Ualted State marakai
of Indian territory in the early diya,
enjoys the rare distinction of haring
a eetacterjr named after him. And the
trance part of It la that no one is
buried there except hie own victims.
There are twenty-eight msunds in tho
cemetery. Under each lies the bones
of aome bad man who brushed up
against Bruner and got the worst of it
When Bruner was marshal the In
dian territory was about as wild as
a country ever gets. It was filled
with horse thieves, cattle thieves, train
robbers and desperadoes of all kinds.
A law abiding peaceable citizen did
not stand much show. Murders were
ao common that they were not con
sidered news. Thefts attracted no at
tention whatever except from the ones
who suffered loss. The country was
run as near along anarchistic lines an
the most ardent anarchist of New York
or Madrid could hope. Little atten
tion was given to the "consent of the
governed." The desperado with tho
quickest movement of his shooting
hand and the mo.it nerve ruled the
roost. That was the condition until
Hec Bruner was appointed United
States marshal. When he took chargj
of the office he decided to revolutionise
things and make Indian territory "a
good place to live in." His friends
laughed at him, although they knew
ho had nerve. To go up against the
notorious gangs of the country, they
said, was foolishness. It might result
In cleaning out a gang or two, but in
the end would result In the marshal
being wiped off the map. What was
the use to endanger one's cwn life in
order to make trouhle for the desper
adoes, they would ask. To this Bruner
replied that he would drive the open
ing wedge toward civilizing the terri
tory if it cost him his life the first day.
He stuck to his resolution, and he did
not lose his life, either. But he had
several narrow escapes. He was punc
tured by bullets until his frame eouU
be "used for a sieve," and he had his
blood spilled in many a fight, but
not enough of It at any one time to
make him bite the dust. While tho
desperadoes were making It interest
ing for Bruner he was kepplng them
busy. He was a dead shot, and when
ever he pulled the trigger on his man
It meant a separation of soul and
body. There was no discount on that.
Bruner began to hunt down the des
peradoes. The first one he killed was
buried in a grove south of Tahlequah.

"After a miner has handled dyna
mite for eight or ten years without a
serious mishap It is a good Idea to
put him to doing something else about
the works," says one who has had a
great deal of experience with high ex
plosive. "The chances are 100 to 1
that his long Immunity from accident
has given him such a contempt for
danger that he Is an unconscious men
ace to everybody on the premises. Ho
will do things that not only imperil his
own life, but the lives of his com
rades. To give you an Illustration,
I once had an old Cornlthman at
work at a mine In which I was in
terested and had Intrusted him with
a general supervision of all the blast
ing. He had been handling dynamite
for twenty years or more and was Just
ly regarded as an expert. During the
entire period he had never had an ac
cident worth speaking of ,and by de
grees the care and vigilance that were
responsible for his excellent record had
worn away until he was beginning to
entertain the delusion, common to old
hands, that the danger of the stuff
wag much exaggerated.
"One day I was parsing through a
cut where aome blasting had been go
ing on and noticed the old Cornlsh
man hammering a drill Into what
seemed to be a boring in the ground. I
asked him what he was doing and he
told me cooly that there wa a cart
ridge in the hole that had failed to
explode and that be was 'Just knock
In' out the tamping to reprlme it. I
was horrified, for at every blow he

And so It went unt"-. the carcasses ol
twenty-eight bad who had met
death at the hands of Bruner while
he was acting In the line of duty wer
buried In that grove. A rail fence waf
run around the grare and the ceme
tery was named "Bruner's graveyard."
Only one grave in the yard is marked
with a marble stone. That is the grave
of a noted horse thief. His pals chip
ped In and bought the tombstone be
cause he waa a "good fellow." AY.
the rest of the graves are marked with
wooden slabs. Many of them are in
closed with slab fences, while others
are inclosed with rails laid in hog
pen fashion. After Bruner got hie
graveyard pretty well filled up the des
peradoes began to realize that he
meant business, and whenever one
wouia hear that Bruner wanted him
he would come into town and give
himself up rather than run the risk of
being the next one to occupy space In
Bruner's graveyard. From that time
on Bruner had an easy time. He had
accomplished his object. He had driv

II Could Abbreviate.
An amusing story illustrating Brit
ish officialism comes from South Af
rica, and will bear repeating. The col
onel of a pioneer regiment, repairing
the railroad after one of Gen. DeWet's
many breakages, discovered a fine
empty housd, which he proceeded to
occupy as fceadquaiteia. When the
news of the colonel's comfortable quar
ters reached Bloemfonteln he received
a telegram which read: "G. T. M.
wants house." The colonel was unable
to make out what "G. T. M." meant,
and inquired of officers, who translated
it 'General Traffic Manager." "All
right," said the colonel. "If he can
n hieroglyphics so can I." So he
wired back: "G. T. M. and G. T. H."
Two days later he received a dispatch
from Bloemfonteln ordering him to at
tend a board of inquiry. On appear
ing In due course he was asked what
he meant by sending such an insult
ing message to a superior officer. "In
sulting," repeated the colonel, inno
cently: "It was nothing of the kind."
"But whut do you mean," demanded
nls superior, "by telling me I can 'G.
T. H.'?" "It was simply an abbrevia
tion," replied the colonel. "G. T. M.
(general traffic manager) can G. T. H.
(get the house)." New York Herald.

and I ordered him sternly to stop and
never to repeat such a performance.
The proper method would have been
to have drilled a new hole near by and
exploded the first cartridge with a sec
ond blast. He obeyed sullenly .grumb
ling to himself, and In less than a
month afterward was blown up while
doing exactly the same thing. He
lost his left arm at the shoulder, his
left eye and part of his left ear. He al
so lost his contempt for dynamite,
and when he finally emerged from tho
hospital I gave him back his former
Job. I never had a more scrupulously
careful employe than he waa from
that time on. It seems a brutal thing
to say, but there is nothing that does
an old dynamite hand as much good
as to get blown up once or twice."
Weird Tale from the TarlHe Coaau
The Chinese residents of North Ya
kima have many sacks of rice supposed
to have been poisoned by the official
and missionaries In China. One mer
chant has twenty sacks put away, and
refuses to eat any or sell to the Chi
nese. Those who claim to know say
that at least $500 Is Invested In pois
oned rice In that city. The rice Is sold
to Americans, but the Chinese purchase
their supplies from local merchants.
They say that six years after eating
the rice the victims die. The object
of the poison, It Is said. Is to kill off all
the Chinese In tho United States.

"I Cheerfully Recommend Peruna to All Who
Want a Cood Tonic and a Safe
Cure for Catarrh."
Prominent members of the clergy r'e giving Peruna their unqualified en
dorsement. These, men find Peruna especially adapted to preserve them
from catarrh of the vocal organs which has always been the bane of publie
speakers, and general catarrhal debility Incident to the sedentary life of the
clergyman. Among the recent utterances of noted clergymen on the cura
tive virtues of Peruna is the following one from Bishop James A. Handy,
D. D of Baltimore:
"I take great pleasure in acknowledging the curative effects ot
Peruna. At the solicitation of a Mend I used your remedy and
cheerfully recommend your Peruna to all who want a good Tonic
and a safe cure for catarrh." -James A. Handy.

Mrs. Edward Stevens of Carthage,
N. Y., writes as follows:
"I now take pleasure in notifying
you that my husband has entirely re
covered from catarrh. He is a well man
today, thanks to you and Peruna. He
took six bottles of your medicine as di
rected, and it proved to be just the
thing for him. His appetite is good
and every thing he eats seems to agree
with him. His cough has left him and
he is gaining in flesh, and seems to be
well every way. I hope others will try
your medicine and receive the benefits
that we have." Mrs. Edward Stevens.
When the ;atarrh reaches the throat
it is called tonsilitis, or larnygitis. Ca

bronchitis; catarrh of the lungs, con
