was piayin' poker with one of the
judges), and I says to hfm 'Mr. Mayor,

Forfeited by this cordial approval of
tne executive and Judicial branches of
the government. Mr. Himpson started
on his quest. Meanwhile, however.
Fowler had cut up another prominent
citizen, and they already had him In
Jail. The friends of law and order
feeling some little distrust as to the
permanancy of their own zeal for
righteousness, thought ft was best to
settle the matter before there was time
for cooling, and accordingly, headed
by Simpson, the mayor, the Judg, the
'Turk, and other prominent citizens of
the town, they broke Into the Jail and
hanged Fowler. The point in the
hanging which particularly tickled my
friend's fancy as he lingered over the
reminiscenced was one that Was rather
too ghastly to appeal to our own sense
of humor. In the Turk's mind there
still ranked the membry of Fowler's
very unprofessional conduct while
figuring before him as a criminal.
Said Simpson, with a merry 'twinkle of
the eye: "Do you "know, that Turk,
he was a right funny fellow after all.
Just as the boys were gtilng to string"
up Fowler, says he, 'Boys, atop; one
moment, gentlemen, Mr. Fowler,
good-by,' and ho blew a kiss to him."
In the cow-country, and elsewhere
on the wild borderland between sav-
.'igry and civilization, men gp quite as
often by nicknames as by those to
which they are lawfully entitled. Half
the cowboys and hunters of my ac
quaintance are known by names en
tirely unconnected with those1 they In
herited or received when they were
christened. Occasionally some would
be desperado or make-believe mifchty
hunter tries to adopt what a title he
deems suitable to his prowess; i but
such an effort Is never attempted in
realy wild places, where it would be
greeted with huge derision; for ail of
these names that are genuine are be
stowed by outsiders, with small regard
to ,lhe wishes of the person named.
Ordinarily the name refers to some
easily recognizable accident of origin,
occupation, or aspect; as witness the
innumerable Dutcheya, Frencheys,
Kentucks, Texas Jacks, Bronco Bills,
Rear Joes', Buckskins, Red Jims, and
the like. Sometimes it is apparently
meaningless; one of my cowpuncher
friends is always colled "Sliver" or
'Splinter" why, I have no idea. At
other times some particular, Incident
may give rise to the title; a clean
looking cowboy formerly in my. em
ploy was always known as "Muddy
Fill," .because he had once been buck
ed off his horse into a mud hole.
The grewsome genesis of one such
name Is given in the following letter
