A Cowboy nnd a Ualoou Keeper Knjoj-
n Dancing LCHHOII.
Tlio police have just been apprised of a
Jittlo adventure which a short time ago
befell Mr. John Kelkcnny , tlio well-
known South Thirteenth street liquor
dealer. Tlio story , though a tnilo "chest-
imtty , " is given as related at police head *
Ono night a tall , roughly-dressed fel
low , whose style of costume showed that
ho was a cowboystepped intoKclkcnny's
saloon. Ho was plainly under tlio in-
ijiicnco of liquor. Throwing ; his hat back
on his head , ho swaggered up to tlio bar
nnd asked :
"Ho you the proprietor of this yero
place ? "
' . 'I guess I am , " replied Mr. 1C. , calmly.
"Well , then , " ( drawing a big Smith &
g Wesson revolver from his belt , ) "L want
f to SPO you dance a liille for me ! "
' 'Hut ' 1 ' dance " returned
i can't , the proprietor -
' priotor , keeping as calm a demeanor as
ho could under tlio circumstances.
"Yes yer km. Yer hot you'll have to if
1 say so , " replied tlio drunken cow-
border , brandishing his gun threat-
Mr. K. thought of tlio ancient maxim
that discretion was tlio bettor part of
valor and coming out from behind tlio
bar. went through all tlio dunce steps ho
could think of. He Hung his fcot in
lively slylo for Ion minutes before the
cow noy was satislied.
"That'll do , now , " said the latter. "I
guess yer all right , Nowgi1 mo a horn
of vor best whisky. "
Air. Kelkcnny obeyed with an alacrity
which was born of a dcsiro to please a
dangerous customer. As the cowbo } '
was enjoying the whisky John looked
cau'lessly at the lovolvor and remarked :
" 1'ino revolver you've got there. "
"Yes , " ntplicd tlio cowboy , ov'dently '
flattered , "its a daisy. "
"Let nio look nt it a minute , will you ? "
asked KelKcnny , pouring out another
glass for tlio cowboy.
"Certainly , " replied the cowboy , hand
ing over the weapon with ono hand and
eei/mg the ulass with the oilier.
Jiu unvor drank the whisky , for aspoon
as Mr. K. had thu weapon in his hand lie
pointed it at tlio cowboy and uttered the
stern command , "Now you dance , " and
ho put the cowboy through all Iho paces
imaginable , fast and slow. For half an
hour ho was compelled to keep his fcot
going at the point of his own weapon.
When the ordeal was over , iio slunk out
of tlio saloon , a very tired ami ashamed
but wiser man. Ho was minus his re
volver. _
A Wlfo'H Buiry.
" 1 have suilbred more for the sake of
that niau than any other woman in
America would have endured for her
husband. "
The speaker was Mrs. Mary Kratkl.tho
woman who , as mentioned in Thursday's
UKI : had tracked a runaway hubbaud
from St. Louis to Omaha.
She had found him living with another
woman ht'ro.just beyond Hanscom park ,
and she hail him arrested on a charge of
adultery. When arraigned before Judge
Ster.bcrg in police court yesterday morn
ing , Kratkis ullonly rcnuukcd lliat ho
thought ho could cl.nir . himself. As
Kratki lived outside the city liniits.Judgo
Stcnberg concluded that he had no juris
diction in the case , and accordingly bent
him befoio Justice Anderson. Tno hear
ing of the case was sot by Judge Ander
son for next Monday , and in default of
§ ,100 bail Kratki was tent to jail.
To a reporter Mrs. Krnlkf made a par-
\ial outpouring of her woes.
"Xwelvo years.ago , " she. bald , "lYras
Iv , V
married to Kratki in St. Louis. Since
that time lie lias done almost nothing
toward supporting mo or our children.
Ho was a blacksmith by trade , and
as fast as lie earned his inonej , instead of
spending it to buy bread for his wife and
children , ho would gamble it away. Uo
had a perfect mania for gambling. Many
a time I have gone to the gambling house
at the corner of Third and Washington
avenue's , in St , Louis , and waited for
hours for him to leave the table. Then
I ha\o had to actually drag him away ,
with his red , white and blue gambling
chips still in his hand. All this while his
children were suffering at homo.
"Soycn years ago , " continued Mrs.
Kratki , "my husband deserted mo. I
found that no had gone to Chicaso. His
feeble cxcnso was tliat ho could not bear
to have Ids mother-in-law my mother
live with us. 1 did not believe that this
was tlio real reason , but as I loved the
man still , 1 followed linn to Chicago. I
had no money , and to raise enough to
purchase a ticket I sold all our fur
niture and household goods , left my chil
dren in good hands and started
for Chicago. 1 finally succeeded
in Finding my husband and induced him
to go back to St. Louis with me. Wo had
no money to buy tickets with , and so wo
determined to walk from Chicago to St.
Louis , a distuned of about 250 or i00 !
miles. Wo walked for days and days ,
and finally reached Springheld , Illinois ,
which is about ninety miles from St.
Louis. There a kind-hearted conductor
on tlio Chicago iSi AJton mot us and said : ' 1
have passed you three times on your walk
from Chicago and I'll see that you ride
the rest of the way to St. Louis. ' He
punched the ticket and that way wo
readied our homo in St. Louis.
"My Iniiband refused to give up gam
bling and wont from bad to worse. A
year or two afterwards ho ran away to
Chicago and I again followed him up
and brought him back. Two years ago
ho again ran away this time to Omaha ,
I leave him now in the hands of the law.
I propose to make him duller as I , his
wife , have sull'ercd , "
