safety and of the revolt:

FROM New York exchanges it is
learned that Lorena Trickey, an
Oregon horsewoman, has ar
rived in the metropolis for thei pur
pose of receiving the McAlpin tro
phy, awarded for all-around horse

celebration, at Cheyenne last
July. She expects - to remain one
week as guest of the McAlpin hotel
and incidently look over eastern
styles in women's dress, with a view
to taking home a few gowns, hats,
shoes and other things that delight
the feminine heart. Incidentally,
she has made application for a li
cense as a jockey.
Miss Trickey, who is but 22, is
small in stature and the possessor
of an attractive pair of gray eyes
and brown hair. Her home is near

the McAlpin hotel the day after her
arrival. It carried with it an invi
tation from the hotel management
to visit New York and stop oni

being- paid by Managing Director
One news account says:
"Miss Trickey has been delegated
by the cowgirls and rancher 'flap
pers' to return home with some of
New York's latest fashions. She ex
pects to begin her search of the
shops soon. She spent a portion of
her time looking for a Stetson that
was to her liking, but failed to
find it. -
" 'I like pretty things to wear al
most as well as I like riding and
breeding beautiful horses,' she said,
'but one can't wear pretty gowns
while working about a ranch.'
"Miss Trickey declares the key
note of her success is lack of fear.
After the next meeting In Cheyenne
she will travel from town to town,
wherever there is a wild west cele
bration. Occasionally there has been
found a woman who can stay aboard
a broncho as successfully as this lit
tle lady, but none has been found
who can duplicate her entire list of
feats, which include such hazardous
things as wild horse racing, relay
riding and 'riding Roman. -

A meeting of the foreigners was
called at the T. Mv C. A. to discuss
plans for protection. The supposi
tion was that if General Chow Sau's
army was defeated, they would re
treat to Kaifeng and loot the city
before Feng could arrive.
"The old governor called a few
foreigners together in secret ses
sion, and asked them to get through
the lines to Cheng Chow and ask
for peace. The peace party left at
midnight and arrived at the firing
line at daybreak. - - General Chow
Sau was in his car smoking opium
and would not be seen. He didn't
want peace and had promised his
men $5 apiece to fight on. The
wounded and dying were lying
about with no one to take care of
them. The delegation sent a 'mes
senger out to go through the lines
with a letter to General Feng. He
was given $50 with the promise of
another $50 if he returned the next
morning. The peace train then re
turned to Kaifeng. They started
out again that night, but the mes
senger was ' probably shot. Still
Chow Sau would not give up..
Troops Lose Morale.
"By this time the Honan troops,
had lost their morale and every sol
dier was shooting at whatever he
pleased. The soldiers began to de
sert and turned toward Kaifeng.
The wounded had begun to come
