"He's a cross between an owl
and a burro," says Broncho Billy
Woods, old $me rough rider, ran
ger and government officer. "He
travels only at: night and he has
ears that stick out enormously.
Those ears fan hear a' pack rabbit
crossing a sana paten nait a mile
away and I swear, he can move
up a rojky arroyo in the darkest
night and never rattle a stone."
And for forty years, nearly, he's
been moving back and .-forth

sometimes with smuggled horses,

with " opium, and certainly -often
with marihuana, the forbidden
weed Which, 'When dried and
mixed with cfg'aret tobacco is far
worse than opium.'
The descriptionof his . equip

with that whicTT-'teThad in July
of thisyear ;when Lee Hall, iic

for nearly as many years as Peg
Leg has been traveling got him
coming over the San Jose moun
tains, across the Iaco draw, mak
ing for the Huachuca fastnessnes.
Broncho Billy Woods first
caught him, a quarter of a cen
tury ag;o. That was long before
Bronhco Billy had the-big Stude
baker car. which now makes 200
miles seem nothing to him. ,
In those days. Peg Leg came
across east of BIsbee, working up
San Bernardino creek and. over
the'ridges toward Rio Blanco,, the
White River, and on up to1 Wilcox
where in the midst of firewater

"I hit out for Douglas before
daybreak one day and thought I'd
kind of keep an eye out for Peg
Leg. I'd. heard a lot about him,
but never seen him. Guess he'd
found the going kinda slow that
night, for he was making up the
draw over back of John Slaugh

during daylight in the gulch the

him, but I was about a thousand

"The description of his outfit
fitted Peg Leg,. but when I rbd up
side of him, I ,was on the side.of
his good leg, and I thought f was
mistaken. We rode along a bit to

off and I saw the peg leg1. 1 stop

through the stumpy soto. dodging
the prkklj ocalilla with its snaky
fingers of long spikes, . and over
hummocks of sacahuista (bear
grass.) Peg" Leg saw it was all
over' again. The Studebaker, even
in this "going, was faster than he
and 'the Hnachuca mountain
gulches were too far away for. a
run'. ';,'.
.So,. Lee came up to him trying
to look innocent. There was the
same description of an outfit
the good horse that looked. like a
"crow-bait"; the oTer-sized burro, I
the two 15-gallon kegs of mescal,
the bag of beans, the pearl-handled,
silver-mounted six gun. ,
Profit in the evil-smelling, fiery
mescal is $15 a gallon now, and
pro.baily more, for the two kegs
Peg Leg carried, contained white
mescal, which is the cheapest
grade. Even this evil-smelling
poison, stewed from the cabbage-
like heads of mescal plant and dis
tilled, is doctored and made more
poisonous in the effort to increase
Lee knew Peg Leg and there
were no ceremonies. Lee carries
a 45 six gun that has all the pleas
ing and ingratiating appearance
a French .73 field gun, when
one looks into its open race, ana
when he draws it. the proceeding
is like drawing a sabre.
But Lee Hall has been drawing
guns for thirty years and time is
an inconsequent element in the
proceeding no. So again, Peg
Leg gave up bis whole outfit, with
fairly substantial lift from "Lee's
boot and the incident is ended
for .the time.
It probably will be another
month before the pudgy old Mex
ican will be working up the San
Jose mountains at night again, an
other bedraggled looking but good
horse underneath him. an over
sized burro behind with a keg of
beans on his back.

fearsome character among the In

ago. He has . been takn only
twice in the forty years. Both
times - his ager hand sought his
