Ccsrr.ii CITT , .S. D. , August 12. To tbo
Editor of TnuBne : Thinking it would beef
of interest to traveling men who rnnko this
territory. I would llko to toll them how I
liavo put In llvo days , nud possibly they may
profit by my experience. I arrived lu Buffalo
Gap Saturday evening at 0:35 : , uavo my
checks to the Janscn stage line to have them
transferred to Hot Springs. I took the stugo
lor Hot Springs nnd arrived there after a
journey ot llvo hours , thirteen miles. My
trunks did not como Sunday , The explana
tion was that they had been forcotten , which
of course was satisfactory "to them. " I bad
to change my plans , and so hired n team to
drive over to Ouster City on Monday , and
gave the stage written directions to take the
trunks from the Gap over bore. I arrived
hero Monday with no trunks. They bud been
Bent to Hot Springs , but would bo brought
back and sent to Custcr City diiro. I received
n message thnt they were on the way. The
stage Is lu and I nm bore with no trunks. The
explanation is that the stage would not carry
them. Ills only costing mo f3 ! per day. I
would like to know if such an outfit us the
iTnnscii stage line had not ought to bo plvcn
the cold shoulder by all traveling men. I am
told to hold the proprietor of the line respon
sible. I once heard thnt it is "bard to squeeze
blood out of a turnip. " It could bo applied
In tbls case nicely.

How It Wnn Done , an Itclntcd by tlio
Honest VOIIMJC I'lrciimn.
As the train wns nbout to pull out of
the Broad street station , Buys u writer In
Iho Philadelphia Inquirer , I oecognl/.cd
nn old friend in the engineer. IIo nodded
to ino nnd I Jumped Into the cab. Dick
nnd I shook liandB , aiul ho introduced
mo to his fireman , a young follow , with
largo , truthful , honest oycs , nnd the
most Innocent looking face I over etiw.
Perched on Iho Boat was n hugo black
nit , ugly , scraggy , and with a ground
hin of fur that looked like a railroad
U : uap , it was so plowed and cut up. Nat-
rally I noticed the cut , aud naked what
L wan doing there.
"I'hnt's a wonderful cat , " fald the
outhful fireman , "and thereby hangs u
nlo. Do you want It ? "
"Of course. "
"Well , nbout n week ngn we Dick.
, ml mo were making the run between
hlladolplila nnd Trenton. It was a
.ii-ty , black night cold nnd n driving
ain , nnd vro wore that id , Dick was
elilnd time , nnd wo were that is , Dick
vns making her hum for nil she wns
ivorth. Wo that Is , Dick had a clear
nick nnd the right of way , A few feet
ihend of the pilot it was as black ns
nothing. Wo were driving Into the
chaos nt the rate of sixty miles an hour.
I I could not help thinking that If wo ran
into anything we'd know more about the
other world than was over written in
books , and I said a little prayer tlmt I
learned 111 Sunday school. Tlio prayer
didn't scorn to do mo much good , and I
: isked Dick if It wns necessary to run so
'ast. Dick gave mo n look of mild con-
.empt , and then I got on my dignity and
'elt as If I'd rather like to strike some-
, hlng just to change that look of Dlok'n
, o ono of surprise. This was wicked , I
mow , but I couldn't ' help it.
"Suddenly there was an awful crash
directly in front of me , a splintering of
glass in tlio cab window , nnd this cut
nmo tumbling in. ftly heart got right
up iu my throat and I thought I'd choke.
I saw Dlok turn pnlo. nnd , toriilletl as I
was , I remember being glad of it. IJo
didn't lose his head , though Dick never
does but reversed the machine , and
when , the train wns stopped wo that is.
Dlclc got out to investigate. And what
do you think ? There wns a rail mis
placed within a dozen feet of where wo
and stopped. The tlagman at the switch
had seen It and hud stationed hiuibvlf up.
the track to signal us.
"IIo had a pot cat which followed him
wherever ho wont. The cat was with
him as usual. When ho hoard us thun-
luring down upon him his lantern wont
out. lie laid it down to relight
it ; a gust of wind caught it nnd it
rolled down the embankment. Hero
was a state of things. The llngman wns
quick to act , however , and grabbing his
faithful cat by the tail ho hurled it at
tlio cab ns wo rattled by. Hero is the
ent that saved our tram. Didn't you ,
Danger ? "
The cat humped its ugly back in
recognition , nnd I looked at the frank
innocent fuco of the boy. Ho returned
the look with wide open , truthful eyos.
"Shades of Mount Vcrnonl "What a
liar that follow is ! " said Dick to mo in a
whisper. "IIo has the reputation of
being the biggest liar on the road. He'd
finish first in a race with Tom Ochll-
trce. That cat story is hla latest 'saved
tlio train' ' business. I saw him fish that
cat out of the ditch two clays ago. "

crank to wind each weight up.
It requires 700 feet of thrco inch rep _

noon I urn speaking about. AlrCool got into a
a poker g.tmo ( good old draw pnker it wns )
with a wealthy gambler named Brady. Nei
ther McCool nor Brady belonged to a temper
ance organization , and a feature of the g.uno
was the frequent turning of the low card for
a drink. It was about .sundown when the
deal began which ended'tho game mid left
McCool afoot and bankrupt.
' "J'bu do.il was Brady's , nnd the first card
had been given to curb of thciri , when Mc
Cool wanted a card turned for another round
of drinks. Brady turned it , and a four-spot
fell to each.Vith a rocklessnes' nnd
gambling informality which had character
ized the puna throughput , MeCool threw n
largo sum of money on'tho tublo nnd Bradv
called It. It seemed to bo merely u but bJ-
forotho draw , and the players tacitly under
stood in what manner it would bo won or lost.
McCool called for another card to bo turned ,
nnd It was done. Encliijot a live spot. Mc
Cool made another addition to the pot , which
Brady covered , and a third card was turned.
Each got a six. Up to tbls tinio the players
had Intended thataf tor deciding the question
of drinks , the draw should bo proceeded
with ; but now the game took another turn ,
nnd it was decided to sotllo the hands with
out drawing. The fifth card was accordingly
turned , and it was a deuce. There was an
immense pile in the pot , and the Interest
among the crowd , which was packed around
tbo table , was so Intense and the silence so
deep that the ticking of the tall clock behind
the bar sounded like a hammer striking on an
anvil. Both men sat deeply absorbed in
study. McCool's buried card was a six spot ,
and lie was certain enough that hU pair had
Brady beaten , Brady's ' buried card was a
tray , nnd ho had a straight and a sure thing.
Ills credit , sitting behind that hand , was un
limited , and ho was prepared to play It out.
"Tho scene at this time was the most im
pressive that I believtd I ever witnessed. I
never saw an agKrcgatlon of men so thor
oughly Imnpresscd with the fact that a tre
mendous Btnko hung In the balance. The
betting proceeded heavily but slowly until
llnally McCool bad all his earthly possess
ions represented in the stake on the table P.V
copt two objects. Ono of these was his stnl
lion , who stood champing his bit In the street
outside ; the other was his old negro slave ,
wuo stood holding the horse. Finally Mc
Cool ordered tbo negro to bo brought In , and
Brady deposited g'.oiw against him , at the
satno tlmo raising McCool $ > ,000.
"Aftersome moments of cool study Mc
Cool told Brady that nil ho owned wits on the
table , with the exception of his horse. Ho
was willing to put him up against the last bet
that Brady had mado. The proposition was
accepted , nnd McCool ordered the horse to ho
led in. Ho was. The interest which IJIiavo de
scribed as attending the gaino before now
seemed Intensllled , if Unit wore possible , and
tbu picture there presented , with the faithful
old slave standing by his master's chair , the
agony of the suspense of which ho was un
dergoing plainly depicted upon hit face , the
magnificent horse , who seemed all
but conclous of the wealth at
stake and lastly tbo players nnd spectators ,
was one never to bo forgotten. AVhen the
betting was at last over and nothing was
lacking to decide tbo game but tbo appear
ance of the two buried curds , McCool callet
for a glass of liquor. It was not until ho
had emptied this that ho asked to see his op
ponent's ' card.
"When it wn * shown down ho silently getup
up from the table nnd walked through the
crowd , which parted for his passage , out Into
the street , ho never sat in a gaino that drew
a crowd again , and It was but a few months
from that tlmo when ho disappeared per

A peculiar , painful nud extremely annoy
ing mishap befell William II. Harper of
Uutto City last night , says the Tacoma
Ledger. Mr. Harper is n miner who arrived
in Tacoma yesterday from the cast , nccom-
pauied by an abnormal appetite for strong
drink and a large , luxuriant beard , of which
ho Is very proud. Aftur depositing his bag
gage in a South liallroad street lodging house
Mr. Harper started out to sco the sights ,
taking his appetite nnd beard along. During
thocoursoof the day ho tooksever.il drinks
which his rugged system craved , nnd would
have prolonged the festivities until far into
the night. But at 0 o'clock a kindly disposed
stranger steered the inebrbito miner to his
lodging bouse and put him into his room.
Hero Mr. Jlarpuv attempted to light the
gas. The jot was suspended from the coiling1
lu the center of the room , and In reaching up ,
the drunken man dropped the burning match
into his flowing whiskers , rendered highly
tnilnnurmblu by the liquor spilled into them
during the day. With a wild howl the gen
tleman from Iluttc dashed out into the.hall
wit bids face and head blazing like u cam
"For God's sake , put me out. " yelled the
unfortunate man , as ho dashed back and
forth along the hall , clawing madly nt the
Humes with his hands.and nearly stilled with
the fearful odor. For , in addition to the
singed hair , thcra was a well defined trace of
burning tobacco and other foreign substances
acquired during ten years' sojourn in a min
ing camp. A man in the next room heard
the cries and ciuno Hying out with rare pres
ence of mind and a largo bowl of water , which
ho poured on Mr. Harper's bead. An instant
later tbo hotel porter arrived with a largo
and very dusty doormat , with which ho suc
ceeded in effectually subduing the conflagra
tion. Mr. Harper was also subdued for such
a hot-headed man , and wanted to know If an
iilarm had been turned In , before ho realized
just what hud happened. Instead of sending
for the tire department a doctor was called
in , who nmiuintod the sufferer's glorified fnco
with linseed oil nud lime-water. In addition
to bis balr and whiskers , Mr. Harper also
lost his eyebrows and several patches of
skin , besides one night's sleep that ho paid
for in advance , but lie Is in u fair way to re
cover , and will bo all right in a few days. It
is said that ho will Immediately return to
Butte City to raise a new crop of whiskers.
A novel duel was fought near Moore's Sta
tion between two Mexican cowboys named
Soso Cnrr.isco and Manuel'Bo.-sco. Carr.isco
was In possession of a Una mettled cow
which Bosi-o claimed belonged to him and
had been stolen some tlmo provlovs , SUVH the
Louisville Courior-Jouraal. The two men
met In the roadway. They were both on
horseback and their lariats hung from the
pommels of their saddles. Bosco hailed
Currasco and demanded the return of the
cow. The latter became furious at the sug
gestion that ho hud come Into possession of a
stolen cow , and his Mexican blood began to
boil. Words of a sulphurous nature began
to pass between the cowboys , -when Hosco
called Carrasco a liar.
Scarcely bad the words been spoken when ,
quick as a Hash , the irate Carrasco gr.ispeci
his lusso from his saddle , mid , twirling it
with a quick movement over his bend , sent
it with a swish toward Bosco's nock , The
latter ducked his head and grabbed bis lariat
as ho did so.
Then began one of the fiercest bloodless
battles that has over been recorded , Up and
down the roadway the two hprsumoi dashed ,
the lassoes of the duelists flying nud circling
in the nir. Not a word was .spoken. As fust
as the lassoes fell short of their mark they
were Jerked quickly together , and with a
twirl over the head each cowboy endeavored
to encircle the other's neck.
Tiio horses were flecked with foam , and
both of them dashed away In the same diroo-
tlon , seeming to realize the fight to the death
going on between the riders. On sped the
horses , but not n word spoke the fighters.
Bosco finally turned his eyes from tbo other
cowboy for na Instant , nud , ( juick ns a Hash ,
Carrasco dropped the noose of his lariat ever
his adversary's ' neck , swung his pony around
with a Jerk , and , putting spurs to the animal ,
started off in the opposite dlieeUon.
Dosco was Jerked from his horse's back so
suddon.ly that Ids neck wns broken , andho
wns dragged over the ground ut full speed for
more than u inllo. Tbo victor dlsenguged his

Mr. C , II. Anderson had a thrilling exper
ience with a devil fish In Commencement bay
last Friday evening , says the Tacoma Keg-
later. Ho hud been cruising around hi the
llttlo steam launch Daisy with a pleasure
party , and when opposite the coal bunkers on
tbo way Into port some obstruction blocked
the propeller screw. The boat was giv ° u a
terrible wrench , nnd the little screw began to
thump , thump , thump against the liull of the
launch. Imagining that a piece of kelp bad
become entangled la the screw , Mr. Ander
son , stopping the engine , calmly rolled up
his sleeve nud thrust his arm down ut the
stern and grasped tbo wriggling mass , the
outlines of which were only Indistinctly dis-
rcrnnulo In the gathering dusk. AH ho grasped
tbo slimy mass to loosen It from the screw ho
felt n crawling sensation , nnd know that his
arm was being encircled by some reptile.
Then followed a sensation as of u hundred
leeches sucking , and Iho strength of a man
being exerted to draw him overboard. Mr.
Anderson nerved himself for a final effort ,
and the tentacle wrapped about bis urm
parted from tbo body of the monster. As ho
ilrew himself upward the tcutnele relaxed Its
hold nud fell buck Into the water.
"t might have held ou to It , " said Mr. An
derson this momlnjr , "Inul 1 not boon moro
Intent In holding on to my own nriu. "
"How larpo win 111"
"Only n llttlo one. " said he.
"How big Is tlmtl" asked the reporter , mid
Mr. Anderson hullcated tliosbool thotonlii-
rlo thnt Inul enwrapped his nrm by holding
hU hands eighteen or twenty inches npnrt.
A mass of twenty-Inch tentacles with a
body nbout the slm of n water bucket would
mnkon very formidable monster , notwith
standing his protestations to the contrary.
The screw of the propeller wns wrenched
nearly off the rod by the nnlinnl , ntul Itn
blades show tlio nhrat ioni made by thump

Anderson' * nrm , In nn ndvnuelng circle , nro a
scries of llttlo spots , which on Friday night
were very sow , showing where the suckers
of the tentacles had fustencil themselves.
Mr. Anderson supposes his encounter to have
been with a devlllish.
