A Joke That Is Not Half True.
It is a common joko that when a
man's wife is out of town ho writes a
mournful letter, and then poes around
nnd has a high old time. There is not
much in that joke. It does not begin
to do duty with tho mother-in-law joke,
and that is pushed far beyond its
deserts. The fact is that out of a dozen
men whoso wives are put of tho city
for the summer there will bo at least
eleven who nro really lonely, and, in
fact, put in a very miserable time.
They do not feel willing; to acknowl
edge it at first, and few liko to have
sympathy thrut upon them, butv.thero
arc mighty few who do not in their
hearts pay tho highest kind of tribute
to their wires nnd wish for their re
turn. Washington Star.

I calls to mind a-killln' down to old Ilea
"There was a big crowd nt Stockton's
that June day. Tho corrals was full of
pack mules, an' bull teams, an' wagon
trains from tho east, an white men,
Mexicans, half-breeds an' Injuns was
a-mixin' an mcanderin' 'round, a-lyln'
an a laughin', an' a-drinkln' old Ike's
whisky mighty profuse. Four or flvo
mulo-sklnners had their long, limber
10-foot whipB, which nro loaded with
dust shot from butt to tip, nn' was
crackln of 'em at a mark. I'vo seen
ono of 'em with tho most easy, delicate,
deliberate twist of the wrist make his

with tho crack of twenty rifles, an tho
buckskin popper would cut a holo in a
loose Buffalo robo he'd hung up an' all
without invcstlr.' two ounces of nctooal
strength. Several of us was a-lookin'
on from tho hotel porch npplaudln' of
tho good shots, when Short Crook Davo
speaks up to Jack Moore next to mo
an' says:
" 'Jack, you mind that old Navajo
you downed over on tho San Simon last
'"I mind'B it mighty clear,' says
Jack. 'Ho was a-stealln' my hoss at
tho time, an I kin prove it by hl3 skolp
on my bridlg right now.'
"'Well, says Short Creek Davo,
polntin' to a dirty saddled colored half
breed who was makln' himself pretty
numerous, 'that feller they calls Pickles
Is his ncphfy, an' you wants to look out
a whole lot, fer I'vo heard him allow
that tho klHn'.of his undo was mighty
rnnk, nn' ho didn't like it no how.'
" 'That's all right,' says Jack, 'Pickles
an' mo has been watchln' each other fer
an hour an' I'll tall you alls prlvato If
ho goes to piny hoss a llttlo bit, ho and
his uncle will bo able to talk things
over before night.'
"Blmeby Pickles comes along whero
we are.
" 'Hello, Jack,' ho says, 'been makln'
It smoky down on San Simon lately?'
" 'No, not since last fall,' says Jack,
'an now I thinks of It. I see that old
Navajo hoss thief of an undo of yours
when I was down there last. I ain't
met him, lately, though. Where do
you reckon he's done 'loped to?'
" 'Can't say oyself,' says Pickle3,
with a sort of wicked cheerfulness; 'our
family had a reunion over on Bear
creek last spring an' I couldn't count
his nose among 'em, nohow. Mebby ho
had an engagement, an couldn't git
there. Mebby he's out sloshin' 'round
in tho high grass some'ers now. Great
man to go 'round permuscus, that Injun
" 'You see,' says Jack, 'I didn't know
but he might bo dead, because tho timo
I speaks of I was settin' in camp one
day and happens to look up nnd thar
was my hoss, Alazan, with a perfect
stranger on him, an' it looks like he
was goln to cripple that stranger shore.
Well, you know me, I'd rather lose two
horses than have a man I don't know
git hurt, so I grabs my Winchester an'
allows to kill Alazan. But it was a now
gun, an' you know what new sights la
coarse as sand burrs an' I holdn too
high an' I ketches tho stranger, bang!
right back of his left y'ear, an' the
bullet conies outen his right y'ear. I
never was so displeased with my
shootln' fur ten years. The Idea of me
holdln' four foot too high In a hundred
yards. I was so plumb disgusted an'
ashamed, I never went near the strang
er 'till after I'd finished my grub.
Alazan, ho came up all shlverin' an'
sweatin', an' stood there, an' In an hour
or so I walks out to the remains, an'
when I seed 'cm, they was nothln' but
an old Digger Injun. You kin drink on
It, I was relieved. Bein' a no-account
Injun, of course I didn't paw him over
much for brands, but It struck me at
the timo It was mighty likely to bo your
uncle. This old cuss' skelp is over on
my bridle, if you think you'd know it.'
" 'Oh, no,' says Pickles, mighty vtn
consarned, it couldn't be my une no
how. If it was one of my fart'ly it
would have been your ha'r an his
bridle, so it must have been some old
short horn of a Mohave you seed. Well,
let's all tako a drink on it.'
"So we all went In for our whisky.
Jack an' Pickles watchln' each other
mighty close an' all the rest of us on '
the keevee, as tho French say, to hop
outen range if they took to shootln'.
" 'Well,' says Pickles, as he secreted
hus nose paint, 'I must saddle and git
ut of here. I want to see Enrlgbt, an
'fi3(7s sffife""? JBs-vmL J
I don't reckon I'll And tho old Pinto
this sldo of Prescott, either. Whoa rto
you think you'll loavo yourself, Jaolf?'
" 'I don't put it up I'll loavo for a long
timo,' says Jack, 'mobby not fur a
month, so don't go makln' any frlentUy
waits fur mo nowhar on tho trail,
Pickles, 'cause you'd most likely run
out of water or uomethln' bctoro I sot
along l
"Blmoby Pickles ho glta saddled up
and cornea chargln' 'round on his little
buckskin hoss, cuttln all manner of
tricks, rcachln' fur things on tho
grou.id, snatchln' off Mexicans' hats,
an a-Jumpln' his pony over wagon
tongues an' camp flxln's. All tho time
a-whoopln' an' ycllln', an havln' a
high old timo all by himself. You
could seo ho was a-glttln up his blood
an nervo rcglar Injun fashion. Pretty
soon ho takes down his ropo an' goes
to whlrlln' that Two or three times
ho comes flashln' by whar wo were, an'
I look for to seo him make a try for
Jack. But ho was too far back or too
many 'round him, or Pickles couldn't
git his hoss' step, or somcthln', for ho
didn't throw It, but Jest kept yollln'
nn' rldln' louder an faster overy min
ute. About this timo Stockton camo
out from his bar room.
"So old Ike ho goes back to his bar
room, an Pickles gits down an' leaves
his hoss Btandln an comes back up on
his porch.
" 'Do you know, Jack,' says Pickles, 'I
don't like tho onrespeckful wny you
talks of Injuns. I'm Injun part myself,
an' I don't liko It.'
"'No,' snyB Jack, 'I s'poso that's a
fact, too. An' yet, Plcklea, not Intend
in' nuthln' personnl at all, for I would
n't bo personal with a horned tond,
I'm not only onrespeckful of an Injun,
an' thinks tho guvment ought to pay a
bounty fur tholr skclps, but I states a
bollef that a mean, onery, mud-blooded,
sneakln,' hoss-stealln' mongrel of a
half-breed is lower yet. I holdln' ho
ain't oven people ain't even nuthln',
in fact. But to change the subject, au
well as open nn avenue for anuther
round of drinks, I'll bet you, Pickles,
you stole that hoss down thar, an' that
tho '7 K' brand on his houlder nln't no
brand at all, but Jest picked on with
the point of a knife.'
"When Jack puts it all over Pickles
this way, wo looked fur some shootln'
shore. But Pickles couldn't steady
himself on the pinch. Ho was jest
liko lots of ponies I've Bced. He'd ride
right at a thing as though ho was goln'
clean through or over, an' Jest the last
second he'd shy, an Hindi, an' weaken.
Tho fact Is, son, It wasn't Pickles' fault.
Ther nn't any breed of man on earth
but tho pure white as will play a des
perate deal clean through an call tho
turn for life or death at the close; an'
of course, Pickles was oDly half white.
So ho laughed sorter ugly at Jack's
bluff, an' allowed he'd order drinks
without no bettin.
" 'An' then, Jack,' ho says, 'I want you
to take dinner with me. I'll havo Ike
get us somethln' right.'
" 'IiUgo you,' sayB Jack, 'If it ain't
nothln' but Bowbelly.'
" 'I'll fix you peoplo up a feed,' says
old Ike, 'but you can't do your fcedln'
In no dlnln' room of mine. I'll fix It
over In tho camp houso, t'other sldo
the corral, an' you kin be jest as socia
ble an' smoky as you please. There
won't bo nuthln' nor nobody fur you
to hurt or disturb over there.'
"After a llttlo their grub was got
ready in tho camp house, an' Jack an'
Pickles walks over side an side. They
goes in and shuts the door, an' in about
flvo minutes bang! bang! goes two six
shooters, an' wo all canter over an'
finds Jack eatin' away all right, an'
Pickles over tho other sldo with his
head in his tin plate, and hid brains
runnln' out over his left eye."
" 'It don't look like Pickles was hun
gry much after all,' says Jack,
"They'd both pulled their guns na
they sat down an' put 'em on their
laps, but Jest as I say, Pickles couldn't
stand tho pressure; an' gettln nervoua
ho grabbed for his gun, an' as he went
to git It up the muzzle caught under tho
tablo top an' thero his bujlot was all
Bafo In tho wood. Jack bein' clean
strain' had better luck.
"After dinner we Impaneled a Jury
an' tried Jack for the klllln'. Of
course, wo knowed he'd got to bo ac
quitted, an' tho klllln' was right, but It
bothered a heap to And a ground to put
" 'You see,' says Dan Boggs, 'this kill
in' was bound to be all right from tho
Jump, no matter who got Baited. Each
was agin' the other un, sn' they Jest
wont to this shootln' hand in hand like
brothers. Neither was to blame, an'
that's what gits me.'
"Finally, Cherokee Hall gits up nn'
says: 'This horo killin' was right, but
there bein' some present difficulty of
givin' tho reasons why it's all right, an'
owin. as wo do, a dooty to the pub
lic, I moves you that our verdict be
"Justified homicide," based on tho
ground that Pickles commits Biilclde.'
"This was good enough. Of course.
Pickles didn't commit suicide non.
but that didn't hurt It for a reason Just
the Bamo."
