husband made up his mind to try his

to his plans. After it was settled that

next victim, and not a vestige of her

There is a fierce contention among a
number of the great western cities for
the hohor ot being the seat of the next
National Democratic Convention., Chi
cago wants it, Cincinnati wants it, and
St. Louis wants it, and especially Lou
isville wants it. The latter metropolis
backs up her claim by the vaunt of bet
ter hotel accommodations than her ri
vals, and a!so of being more central and
accessible. Furthermore she "has a hall
capable of seating 20,000 people." Lou
isville is in deal earnest about this mat
ter, and means to corral that Conven
tion. If Chicago or Cincinnati or St.
Louis expect to get it it will be necessa
ry in order to win, to walk right over
the dead body of Louisville.

the old man ; "there used to bo heaps
0' reds out here, to say nothing of the
wolves, b'ars and rattesnakes, an' thar
win times when death rose up to shake
hands with me." . '
"Ever taken prisoner ?" '
t "i nought have been I guess I was!"
he said, as he uncovered his head. '
"Why, you've been scalped ft'-.-ri
, "They call it sculping, stranger !"
"And who did that ?" y
"This same blasted Red Cloud He
didn't use the knife, but lie stood by an'
hollered and encouraged the chap who
did do it." m
"Your sensations must liave been ter
rible?" "There wasn't any time to feel any
sensations, stranger. . , They sneaked it
on mo an' Tom as we dozed, an when I
woke up Tom was riddled an my scalp
was hanging to an Injun's belt I"
"And what then V
Nothing much. I got up and-killed
two, wounded another, and legged it up
a canyon aiid got away. If it .was to
do over again, I'd get my topknot back
or fight . the whole Sioux nation till
snmbody went nnder.'
He seemed lost in reflection a mo
ment, and then continued :
"I don't know what skulps are wnth
in the market, but I guess I've got the
full va'ne of mine. I've knocked over
nsin' of thirty Sioux since that iih'ht,
an' I guess I'd be willm' to pass "re
"P suppose you've had a turn at a
bait dozen different tribes ?"
"Less see," he mused. "Thar's the
Sioux, Blackleet, Pawnees, Arrapahocs,
Shoshonees, Cheyennes, an' three or four
other tribes. They've all hunted me,
an' I've hunted thorn, an' I can't say as
they owe me anything."
"I notice a bad scar on your face."
"Purty good scar for a common man
but I kin show ye the sculp-lock ot the
Pawnee who made it. He jumped on
to me just after I had swum a river. au'
he thought he'd got hold ot a jack-rali-bit.
T was a bad cut, p.u it kind o'
'mazed me at fut, but when I did cum
to, he was gone afore he could yell
twice ! 1 said it was a purty good scar
out it isiri quite ekat to this."
And he pushed up the legging on his
right leg and exhibited a war whleh
made me draw back. The foot, ankle,
ana teg, as high as I could sec, had been
burned bv fire.
"The Blackfeel had me fat to a stake
once, ye obsarve, he explained. "That
was the time when thev noked rarh
other in the ribs an' said" they had a
ueau-sure ining on KJia carter, but they
wuz mistaken. They had me three
days, a-id I'd bin kicked an' cuffed
around until there wasn't any more fun
in it. an' then thev tied me to a kIaI-a
an' lighted a tirp around me. 'Twas
pretty el us, stranger pretty clns."
"Al.d how did you esefloe?"
j 1 -"Halt
a dozen ot my old pards came
a long jiM in time 10 knocu over bait the
baud, and savp me "
There was silence again while he un
buttoned his shirt and showed me a
bosom literally srrid-ironoil with se.irs.
"Well, there may Ikj two or three
Kiuie cuts mar," be explained, "but the
heft o' them scars wuz made by a rriz-
zly. He wasn't one o' these b'ar calves
that some folks kueck over an' then
blow n1out. but a r'!ar tl
old-fashioned grizzly, such as ye don't
find outside o' the darkest canyons in
the Rockies. I wuz bendiu' over the
fire when the varmint slid down a can
yon an' wuz right on hand afore I had
And was it a hard fight?-'
"It wuz a purty fight, stranger, be
cause it wuz a tu'r fight. I had a big
knife, an' he had teeth an' claws.an' we
went in tor kill. He wuz go,d grit,
but a leetle slow. Thar wuz about
thirty days after that little cpysode that
my pard had to nuss me like a child.''
"And you mean to die ont here?"
"That's tor the Lord to sav, but I
'sjwets yer moro'n right. The Injuns is
purty quiet down here, an' these keers
ar. hringiu heaps ' people West, but
I'm goin' up whar a whito man won't
disturb the Lord's work tor a bundled
years to cum ! 1 feel kinder mean and
small down here .is if I wuz huutin'
rabbits ; but up the Ye'lowstone a teder
kin brace up a'ter he's knocked over a
red or two, an' feel as if he wasn't f'oolin
away his young days!"
