StoHos of famous California slago rob
beries' hnvo of late appeared moro
abundantly than usual but of the really
picturesque pictures in frontier desper

notoriety. Tales of their adventures yet
told in pioneorH1 cabins , have never yet
reached permanence in printed form ex
cept in the merest fragment.
The first of these questionable heroes
was "Shoot-Iron Jack , " an audacious
brigand , whoso real uamo is involved in
obscurity. Fifteen years ago ho was a
terror to several counties of Northern
California. Ho was well educated , hand-
sDino , tall ; the son of n minister , BO all
accounts agreed , and his natno had boon
gained by the immunity from bullet-
wounds that lip appeared to possess.
Men did not hesitate to dcchro that thoj

became known as the most export horso-
thief in the region , and Innumerable ex
ploits of his are related in Shasta and
Tolmma counties. On ono occasion

lumod a disguise , met the sheriffs party ,
delighted them with his aongs and stor
ies , put up with them at a little village
inn , and durintr the night escaped with
; ho three best horses in the party , after
laving turned the others loose in the
woods and leaving a saucy and funny letter -
tor of thanks ending with an apt Latin
juotalion for the sheriff , whoso wrath
was of such an abiding sort that brief

boon overhauled ; in less than two min

Shoot-Iron Jock , with a moro bigatollo
f twenty or so warrants hanqing over his
head , once ventured into Hod Bluff , quite
a largo town on the Sacramento river ,
whoso broad , rapid and bluff-walled cur
'out ' sweeps in a semicircle past. Ho hat
i world of disguises , but on this occasion
ho was recognized in the main street an
pursued by an armed and excited crow
of citizens. Ho ran into a stable , cut

but under the circumstances ho is not t <

appeared and excited much comment. 1

taken out on the floor by her partner ,
and suddenly the stranger stopped up !
and with great politeness requested the
gentleman to resign the lady in his favor
Ho whispered his name in the young
man's car , paid a compliment to thi
young lady , took her forth and led thi
danco. The word wont around that Shoo
Iron Jack had come there to dance with
all the pretty girls ; that ho had sovora
revolvers , never missed a shot and proba
bly had friends hid within call. The long
and the short of it was that the thirty
youn men present were terrorized , and ,
ono after another , the handsome brigand
danced with the prettiest maidens in the
room. Then ho bowed to the excited as

hungry and footsore , trudging along the
roadside , hoard the rattle of hoofs as a
man on horseback approached , was halt
ed , questioned sharply , ilung a five or
ton or twenty-dollar piece with the in
junction -'drink no whisky and don't
believe all the hard stories you hoar
about Shoot Iron Jack. "
The following Incident was told to the
writer by ono of the principal actors
therein , a number of years ago. It was
a bright August day and a young Gorman
was riding along the mountain paths of
the Northern Coast range , Suddenly
his horse , a fine and valuable animal ,
began to show lamonoes and in an hour
was unable to moro than hobble forward
at moro than snail's pace. The youth ,
ignorant regarding the ways of horsollosh
was in despair , Ho had invested § 150
in the creature and how was ho to pro
coo-1 on his way ? A mild-voiced , bonov
olout old man of farmor-liko appearance ,
but in reality the shrewdest horse trader
in the mountains overtook him at this
juncture , won his confidence , examined
the horse and pronounced it a case of
"founder. "
"And it'll take a year for him to git
wall , and ho won't bo the same hess ag'in
nothor. "
"What shall I do ? " cried the sorrow
ing Gorman.
After a long talk the shrewd trader
offered the German thirty dollars for the
liorao , saying that ho ahoulu turn him out
to pasture a mile distant , and leave him
there a year or two. Ignorant , bowil-
Jorcd , the Gorman consented , took the
money , delivered thu limping horse , took
his saddle and bags and started to walk
to the nearest stage station. Meanwhile
the sharper waited until his dupe was out
of sight , tlioij took a pair of smith's pin
cers out of his saddle-baps , and in live
minutes ho had wrenched off all four of
the now stool shoes from the horse's
hoofs. In half an hour the horse was
able to walk easily.
"Thar , 1 tho't BO , " the now owner
"Tho ininit I seed them now shoes I
knotted sumo fool hud tight shod him.
That hess IB wuth two hundred at least.
Lordl 1 wish 1 could find aoch a fool
uvory day. "
The poor Gorman plodded slowly on
his toilsomo.wny for several miles , when
a man rode out of the bushes and do-
maudod , ' 'Where in the devil was his
homo ? " Ho told the story brietly , and
with riling suspicions that it had two
lidefl. The uian listened attentively ,
broke into merry fits of laughter , sitting
lidewlso on his great brown horse , with
3iio KIICO thrown over the saddle , pulled
hi moDstacho refloctingly it was Shoot
Iron Jack. Ho began to nsk questions
about the aged and benevolent stranger.
Finally ho said :
"You'vn ' boon swindled shamefully ,
and as this is my boat , I suppose I must
help you out. You walk in these bushes
till you como to a camp. There's broad
and dried beef plenty. Then you lie
down and go to sleep. "
An hour later ho overhauled the now
owner of thohorso , and at pistol point re
covered the property.
"But I ortor hev back thot $30 I paid
the fool Dutchman. "
"My honest sir , that goes for my fees
as counselor In this case. Now I think
of it , it is scandalously small ; turn out
your pockets. " And ho took § 000 from
the trembling and conquered sharper ,
onjoycd his despair a moment , tossed back
half of it and rode off.
The young Gorman was roused a little
later by Shoot-Iron Jack. "Hero's your
horse and outfit ; I'vo filled your saddlebags -
bags and given you a pistol. Don't 1)3
afraid ; I bought it with honest money
onco. All I ask is that you keep the
story of this adventure secret fora month ,
Tonight I must move my camp. Ride
off . " And Shoot-Iron
as soon as you can. -
Jack retired to his tent. Somehow this
talented , educated , brilliant man escaped
the tallons of the law-hawks , and was
shot dead in a quarrel a few years later.
"Big Sandy , " now in state prison for
murder , was a desperado of a very differ
ent typo. Ho was a red and burly giant ,
twice the size of ordinary men , Ho and
n brother lived in a cnstle-liko and forti
fied house on the headquarters of Cow
Creek , noithorn California , and with
their hangers-on they terrorised the
whole region for years. The place was a
resort for thieves and murderers , so it
was surmised with justice. Cattle and hogs
were shot in thn woods. Mon who ex
pressed themselves strongly nn the sub
ject were likely to hoar a bullet whist
ling past whllo they were milking or
chopping wood.
Sandy had boon a slave driver in the
palmy days of that ghastly occupation ,
and ho had neglected none of its lessons
of greed , cruelty , and hypocrisy. The
story is told against him , gathered from
his own admissions and boasts whllo
drunk , that ho had once grno to two or
phan nieces of his , in some western vil
lage , told them that ho was wealthy and
prosperous in California , and with con
summate villiany persuaded to sell their
property , place the proceeds in his hands
and start to California with him.

Now York Journal ,
A hlt h hoard fcnco inclosed the back
yard of Mr. llobert Bounor'a handsome
roaidonco on Fifty-seventh street , neat
Fifth avonuo. A red brick st-.blo with
granite tritnmlnga occuuies the middle of
the yard. A covered path of tanbark -
bark tana around the stable , inside o
which the fastest trotter in the world ro.
cnivcs her visitors. A gate loads through
the fence from the Fifty-sixth street side ,
and small boys stand nround and endeav
or to obtain a poop nt the queen of the
turf through the holes in the fonco.
A dozen of boya nnd half that , number
of men were on the sidewalk ycitorday
afternoon when the gate opened and the
nose of the beautiful mare peeped forth ,
The nose waa followed by the sparkling
eyes , the nrched neck nnd the glistening
body of Maud S. She was to r-.ko her
first exercise in Now York sincz she
came In the hands of her now owner. A
light road-wagon was hitched to the niaro
and the colored nttpndaud , "General"
Grant , attired in n linou duator and a
straw hat , was seated in the wagon.
Maud reared her head proudly as she
glanced at the observers and evidently
intended to say : "Look nt mo. I can
boat 2:093 : if 1 like. "
Tlio slick-looking driver used no whip ,
but chirruped to the mare as she pranced
leisurely nlong Fifty-sixth street' , un..1
Grant turned her head into Seventh
Ladies stopped upon the sidewalk nnd
Riancoi admiringly at chohandsome mare
and the few hproemon on the nvenuo
looked at her with critical eyes and sized
her up aa n llyor oven if they were not
aware that she waa Vandorbilt's lost
troaiuro. When the trotter had reached
Eighty-fourth street ho waa feeling lively -
ly and the General little dilliculty
in holding her head steady. A robust
man with a heavy black beard and a soft
felt hat shading hia eyes , came bowling
owiftly nlong behind Maud S.
Ho drove n mettlesome looking dark
bay _ horse that moved along with n free
springy motion and covered the ground
rapidly. The robust man drove right by
General Grant nnd Maud S. turned her
pretty head around indignantly an if to
ask , "Well , what does this mean ? "
The big dark bay was 200 yards ahoa
when the General tightened the reins ov
er Maud and whistled lowly. What ni
poarcd to the spectators on Seventh nvi
nuo to bo n streak of red lightning , fo
lowed by abyciclo. daahot ? along the roa
in n cloud of dust. The big bay hora
hoard it coming and tried to get out th
way. Ho wont straight nhcad with tha
object in view , but ho couldn't do i
The red streak whizzed by like a Has
and did not stop until Ono'Hundrod an
Tenthstreot. General Grant pulled he
up there and waited until the robust ma
and the big bay horse ciught up to hin
When they did the man said in a star !
led tone :
"Say , mister what , is that your'odriv
ing ? a comet or a cyclonoV I was nove
loft behind like that before.
Grant showed hia white tooth in
grin and answered : ' 'This is Maud i
sah. "
"Great ScotU" exclaimed the robua
man , "that explains it. "
The -wondeaful mare waa kept out fo
two hours and was then driven back t
her finely furnished stable , which riva
many a fair lady's boudoir in its arch
tocturo nnd dainty fixings. Maud wa
rubbed down and polished for th
twentieth time in a day , and shook ho
little head at old Dexter , who conton
odly munched oats in his stall , as if sh
pitied the veteran record breaker.
"Sho fools like a school girl , " sai
Grant to the reporter. ' 'She bohaye
well , although a little frisky , and I thin
she can boat the record tomorrow if ah
pleases. "
At which Maud hoked up and vrinkc
wor left eye knowingly.
"What causes tha great rush at Schrotor i
Bocht's Drug Store ! " The free dlstrlbutio

The very smallest of all the kinds o
ihoop is the tiny Breton ( sheep. It
too small to bo voiy profitable to raiao
'or of course it cannot have much wool
md ns for eating , why n hungry mai
: oiild almost oat n whole ono nt a meal
ft ia so small when full grown that it cm
lido behind a good sized bucket. I
akos ita name from the part of Franci
vhero it is most raised. But if not t
> rolitablo sheep , it is n dear little creature
or a p ot , for it is very loving , and bo
: .uiao it is so small , it la not such a nuis
inco about the house as was the cole
> rated lamb which belonged to a littl
; irl immod Mnry * It would need to bet
t very largo little girl n giant girl in
Iced who could take nn ordinary sheep
nhor lupandcuddlo it there ; but anj
ittlo girl could find room in her lap foi
i Breton sheep quite as easily as for ono
if those very ugly little dogs called by
ho ugly name pug. Ono of thi a little
ireatlire's poculnritios ia its extreme
ymp.ithy with the feelings of its humat
Honda , when it has been brought up as
i pot in thu house nnd has learned to
liatinguish between happiness and un-
lappiness. If any person whom it likei
i very much pleased about anything mic :
hews it by laughing the little sheep will
risk about with every sign of joy ; but ,
f , on the contrary , thia person sheds
L-ars , the sympathetic friend will evince
: s sorrow in an equally unmistakable
ay. A kind word nnd a loving caress
ill also fill it with happincaa while a
roan word or harsh gesture will cause it
vidont distress.
