The Graphic Story of Mr. I. . McCoy ,

Deadwood , to settle up a mat-
tar of bug standing which
involved iioarly two thousand dollars.
Ho was at the time in apparurilly
good health , with every prospect of a

the startling flOWO was received by Imis

Am to his subsequvn fate and ao

Mr. McCoy , first maid that Aust had
jtiIm11)Od offabout two hundred yards
troun Snake Creek statiom but afterwards -
wards , on being more cosoly questioned -
tionod confessed that ho did not know
whioii his passenger did get oil' . There
was no other passenger emi the stage

amid on coucitmclir.g his meal , mnounted
to his cent , whipped Up the horses and
left time station cmi a run , never once
looking into the vehicle to moo if his
pastsolmgor was there.
It is doubtful at what point this
driver actually did discover the loss of
liii passenger , but olmu thing is cur-
tam , and for this ho is very nmuch
blamed by Mr. McCoy , that he nuver
notmfiod the superintemidout or ammy of

that Imo wou'd ' have boon found in a
few hour's time and would have today -
day been in all probability , alive and

The probabilities are that on bay- '
lug the route travelled by the stage ,
Aust wandered CIT toward the sand
hills , some five or ton miles. He had
only crossed time ridge and reached
the foot of time hills when found. Ills
boots were soimie what mu dowit at the
heel and as ho sank in thoyioldimmg sand
at every stop they must have begun
to hurt him and he pulled them off

was hot discovered. Ills hat , also ,
