"Time and again -since I have" cdme to New York I have spoken

Walker, the famous Montana girl horse

at McNeil's Island and a possible fine

He was sentenced to serve five
months In the oounty Jail.- ' -
tihuman put up a plea full of heart

which, he told of the wrongs perpe
trated upon him by the strenuous An

attempt of .Annie to kill ! him. Five
Cartridges whistled about and through
his body before hs could put bullet dis
tance between himself and the. fair

wildly at his arm and hand, where some
of the girl's bullets plowed their wsy.
