Has Made His Mooer by; Hal
las; the DcBperadoea .
Jim Jenkins, the man, who1 ha for
forty odd xcars beeti the great nigfit- '
mare of evcrx outlaw in the xxvst; a
man who, in his time, has brought 10
earth mure bandit than any other sin
gle man in the world, ar.d who has al-nio.-t
sir.s'.e-liandtd arrested over 15C
famous dt pcradocs, such as the Dal-ton.-,
the James boys and others, has
now tuti.id a nw leaf in his life. He
ha.s t urn d -philanthropist. Xot only
that, but he has the strangest scheme
:n;agirable into which he has now be
liin to pour his wealth.
Jvi'kir.s is counted as a very wealthy
man cut ".round Wichita. Kan., where
he lives., for he has over $50,000 at his
personal disposal, and men with a sum
like that ar scarce out there.
Jim Jenkins accumulated this great,
sum as prizes for running toearth some
of the nx-'St notorious outlaws th- wild
west has ever known. Jim is still at
work runnirp criminals to death, but
in the meantime he has planned and is
putting into execution one of the queer
est srhttucs of philanthropy that have
ever been known.
It is estimated that there are still in
prison in this part of the world rtearly
HH men who would not have been be
hind the bars were -it not- that Jim
Jenkins caught them and bad them
placed there. In most of these cases
the wives ard children of thes prison
ers are tkirp out miserable existences
in various wa.is. bat none of them can
afford U throw away a rent, and still
others are in aetual w ant. This is where
Jim Jerkins" great scheme comes in.
For capturing these men. who are now
in prison, he has received from the gov
ernment, the state and county authori
ties, and the express aud railway com
panies, prizes which have made him
wealthy. Jim is petting old. and he
knows it. He knows that- in a com
paratively short time he will be- laid
under the sod. with co one to weep over
what is left of him. He has no near
relatives, and his mcney would get all
tw ist' 0 up in the courts. Therefore he.
has decided to do what good he can in
this world, and he has begun to build
l very nice home, which will cost him
f-vUxu) in cash. In this building aud
with the odd COu.UOM which he will hate
left Jim will found a home to whirh the
wives and children cf the criminals who
are now in prison because Jim got the
best of them will always be welcome,
where, they can live, eat and be merry.
The home is to be open to all of them,
free f charge. It is to be located at,
Prj or Creek. Indian territory.

Jenkins has helped capture Jesse
James. Dob Ford. Dill Dalton. Dill

among the outlaw fraternity. He was

. THE BROAD PENNANT.
The Coaasas-dore'a Swallowtail Flag
Disappears frona American
The enactment of the navy personnel
bill is going to make a great change in
manv navsl manners and customs. For
one thing there are IS rear admirals and
ten commodores, instead of seven rear
admirals and ten commodores; and the
officers without the gold stars on their
cuffs arc to be. hereafter just as good
as those with the stars. Iuotherwords,
the distinction between the line and
staff is to be done away with.
The' most interesting change is the
abolition of the grade commodore. It
Mill not mean so much for the commo
dores as for outsiders. They will be
come renr admirals, but will have only
ttic pay of commodores. Thay will
wear more braid on the cuffs of their
uni forms, and have a few more expenses,
and be entitled to have 13 gun fired
in their honor instead of 11. and to hoist
a blue flag with two white stars on it in
stead of a swallow-tailed flag with one
star. - But in other respects, except for
these things, they will be about the

have had it as such only since 1S2, bu
before that the title, though not the

THE CUBAN GOLD' MYTH.
There Is Kothlna; on aba Island
-Which Mar lie Dlsnlfled br
tbe Xante Mine,
If wc listen to the voice of the charm
er or to the books on Cuba for our
information wc shall liud that the min
eral resources of this island include
gold, silver, mercury, lead, antimony,
copper, chrome, iron, manganese, pitch,
bitumen and even coal; but when wc
come to look for practical metallic re
sults commensurate with these varied
mineral resources wc 6hall be disap
pointed, says the Engineering Maga
zine. The gold fiction is the most time hon
ored, for the original Spanish settlers
expected to find rich tfold mines in
Cuba. According to their historian
much gold was taken from this island
lit the beginning of the conquest, but
it seems probable that most of this was
takeu from the chiefs or caciques of the
Indians and very little from the prouud.
El Viugcro Universal, Madrid, 17'J7,
says: "Some of this metal (gold) is
bt ill found at llolguin." Whenever the
existence of gold in Cuba is discussed
this "mine" at Holguin is invariably
brouirht forward. It is true that some
work has been done tit this point and
a little irold has been extracted, but
there, has never lieeii uny systematic ex
ploration, and there is nothing there
which may lo dignified with the name
of a mine.
