The career rif Luke Short. p-rt and "bad
man," form ths subject of Hat Mastcr
on'a third article on "Famous Fighter of
Uie Western Frontier" Id Human Life for
tha current month. Rat haa had consider
able experience along tha llnea deecrllied
and la reputed to have u few notrhe on
Ma gun. Aa deputy I'nlted Slut marshal
for the district of New York City he ha
time to cultivate the story telling talent
and paint anew the gory scenes enacted by
rgood and bad In border dayi.
Luka Ghort'a career began on tha north
ern border of Nebraska and. strange to
relate, cloaed peacefully in Texan, twelve
years ago. A little fellow, barely five left
six and weighing about 140 pounda. he waa
an example of energy and great force,
supplemented with unacrupious cunning.
Hie career in Nebrexka waa comparatively
brief and la thus told by Masterson.
At tha time ha left hla father's ranch In
western Tsxcs, where he had been occupied
aa a cowboy In th middle seventies, for
the Red Cloud agency In North Dakota,
tie waa nothing; mora than a white Indian.
That la, he waa an Indian In every respect
xoept color. And, aa nearly all of our
American Indiana living went of tha Mis
souri river In those daya were both wild
and hoetlle and on the war path mnst of
tha time, a fair Idea of Luke Short rr.ay be
Cleaned from thla statement. Luke bid re
ceived none of tha advantages of a school
In hla younger daya; he could hardly write
hla name legibly. It waa, Indeed, doubtful
If he had ever seen a school house until
lie reached man's petate. But he could
ride a broncho and throw a lariat; he could
shoot both fast and straight, and waa not
I He had no aonner reached the northern
II boundary Una of Nebraska, hard by the
" Sioux Indian reservation, than he estab
lished what he waa pleased to call a "trad
His purpose waa to trade with the Sioux
Indiana, whose reservation waa Just across
the Una In North Dakota, Instinctively he
knew that the Indians loved whisky, and
as even In those daya h carried on. 'his
shoulders something of a commercial head,
ha conceived the Idea that a gallon of
whisky worth 90 cents was not a bad thing
to trade an Indian for a buffola robe worth
110. Accordingly Luke proceeded to lay In
a goodly supply of "Pino Top," the name
by which the whisky traded to the Indiana
In exchange for their robes waa known.
Incle Sam Objects to Hla Business.
Ha waa not long In building up a lucrative
business; t jr waa It long before the Indian
chiefs of the 81oux iXlbe got on to him.
Drunken banda of young bucks were reg
1 tilarly returning to their villages from the
"direction of the Ehort rendeivous, loaded
' to the muzsie with "Pine Top," and, as
a very drink contained at least two fights
and aa it usually took about ten drinks to
cauaa an Indian to forget that the Great
White Father abode in Washington, the
condition of those who had found enter
tainment at tne Bhort ranch, when they
reached their camp, can better be Imagined
Tha Indian agent In cl.arge of thla par
ticular branch of the 8ioui tribe with
Wiom Short had been dealing Boon got
lisy with Washington. He represented to
4 he Department of the Interior that a band
eDf cutthroat -white men, under tha leader
ship of Luka Short, wee trading whisky
to hla Indiana, and that he waa powerless
I to atop It. aa the camp of the whlta men
JeVwas located Just acroas the reservation
"line. In the state of Nebraska, which waa
utalde of hla Jurisdiction. He requested
tha government to Instantly remove the
whisky tradnrs and drive them from the
country. Otherwise, said ha. an Indian
uprising will surely follow. The govern
ment, as was to be expected, forthwith in
structed the post commander at Omaha
to get after the purveyors of tha poisonous
"Pine Top," who were charged with caus
ing auch havoc among the noble red men
Of the Sioux reservation.

"There will be no time for eating." said
tha officer, "as wa must reach Sidney by
tomorrow morning, tn time to catch the
Overland train for Omaha. Bo get to
gether what things you care to take aloDg,
and we w ill ba on our way." ,
"I have nothing that I care to take

a pair of Colt's pistols and a belt of
cartridges, tha officer aoon had them In his
"Where are your partners?" queried tha
"I have no partners," replied Short- "I've
been running this ranch by myself."
But Luka did have a partner, who was
at that very time In Sidney procurinc pro
visions and more 'Tine Top." .
After everything around the ranch resem
bling whisky had been destroyed by order
of the officer In command the trip to Sid
ney, about seventy-live miles away, was
taken up. Luko was put astride a govern
ment horse, his foet fastened with a rope
underneath the anmlal's girth, and told to
rlda In the center of the company of cav
alrymen, Sidney waa reached in time to
catch the Overland train, and Luke was
hustled aboard with as little ceremony as
Ha Made Frleada.
Luke had, by his quiet and diffident man
ner during the short time ha had been pris
oner, succeeded In bavin tha officer regard
him in tha light of a harmless little adven
turer, who really did not seem capable,
even It so disposed, of committing a crime
of any sort; and for thla reason did not

Sidney, Neb., was a very mall place In
those daya. Tha permanent population In
ail probability did not exceed tha thousand
mark. Sidney, following the custom of all
small hamlets, however, would turn out
when there waa anything unusual going on.
And the sight of a company of United
States soldlera lined up at tha railroad sta
tion was enough to arouaa Its curiosity and
cause Its townsfolk to turn out tn a body
and Investigate the cause. Luke Short's
partner was among those who came to see
the big show at the depot, and his surprl.se
can well be Imagined when he discovered
that no less a person than hla partner was
responsible for the big event. It did not
take Luka and hla partner long to fix up a
code of signals by which they could com
municate with each other. Luke could say
a few things In the Indian language that
his partner could understand, and to which
ha could make comprehensible reply.
Escapes from the Soldiers.
'Sltldoo" and "twenty-three" were terms
familiar to Short, even In those days. But
they were conveyed by the sign language
Instead of being spoken aa now.
Luke made his partner understand that
he would soon be back in Sidney, and to
have everything In readiness, so that they
could skip tha country with as little delay
aa possible, aa aoon aa ha ahowed up. The
charge of having unlawfully traded whisky
to the Indians did not seem to concern him
In the least. "I can beat that sure," he
said to himself; "but supposing that agent
should take a notion to call for a count of
heads. What then? I know that there are
several young bucks, whom I caught trying
to steal my 'pine top,' who will not ba
there to answer roll-call In case one Is or
dered. I planted those bucks myself and,
outside of r.-y partner, no one knows the
exact locat r of the cache. While I have
no notion of putting in a claim agalnat tha
government for tha work, I must be care
ful and avoid having it endeavor to ahow
that I really did perform auch service."
These were perhaps the thoughts ha waa
conveying by signals to his partner waen
ha boarded the train at Sidney that waa to
take him to Omaha.
To state tha story briefly, Luka did not
tarry long with the soldiers aftet the train
left Sidney. That night found Luka. back
In town, and before tha following morning
both ha and hla partner were well on their
way to Colorado, driving a big apan of
mulea hitched to a canvas-covered wagon.

he achieved popularity by killing a notori
