veti that never brought any spark of

was simply copyist, He carried this to
such an extent that he even tried that

cowboy playfulness that was once look' 1
upon as tixiug at once the title of bad ni..u
on the cheerful chap who tried it the forc

made an effort at this trick one night at
Lordsburg. Instead of the tenderfoot trem
blingly swallowiug the liquor he laid hands
on Bob. He took bis revolver away from
him and then good natumlly whacked one
of the would be bad man's ears off close to
his head with his burning knife.
"After that Bob lost caste faster than
ever. He became known as One Ear Dodge,
and he got lots of hints that folks around
there only wanted one thing to make them
perfectly contented and happy, and that
thing was Oue Ear Dodge's perpetual ab
sence. But he wouldn't take hints and got
to be a bigger nuisance than ever. There
was abig cattle ranch just over the line in
Old Mexico, and one day a lot of stray cat
tle came strolling in among us. Their
brands showed that they belonged on the
Mexican ranch. One Ear Dodge had been
unusually disagreeable for a day or two
and was hanging around, ugly and broke.
When the boys saw whose cattle the strays
were, they said it would be a good thing to
get One Ear to drive them back to their
owner. The matter was suggested to him.
" ' 'Sther anything in itf snorted Dodge.
" 'Big reward in it, of coarse,' was the re
ply. "The upshot of it was that One Ear got
on his pony, rounded up the strays and
started with them for their owner's ranch.
After he had been gone an hour or so oue
of the boys said, as if he had just happened
to think of it:
" 'One Ear will have to drive them cattle
onto and across that Mexican range before
be gets to the ranch, won't hef
"The reply was that he would.
" 'If any of them Mexican ranchers should
see him doing it they might think it looked
suspicious, mightn't they?'
" 'Naturally they might,' was the reply.
'But maybe they won't see him.'
"That was all there was said on the suL
ject just then. One Ear Dodge didn't come
back that day nor the next. Along toward
night the next day some of the boys came
" 'Well,' said one of them, 'I guess they
must 'a' Keen One Ear.'
" 'Looks that way,' was the quiet reply.
"Then the subject was dropped. Two or
three days later word came from over the
border that some Mexican ranchers had
captured and strung up a one eared cattle
thief, taken in the act.
" 'Yes, they Been One Ear,' said one of
the boys. 'I was afeerd maybe they would.'
"And I said then, and I say now, that

A STRANGE AFFAIR
At a wayside It n, on the old road that
then ran between Philadelphia and C ,
in the state of Pennsylvania, a very strange
and curious affair occurred in the fall of
1797. One dark, rainy, disagreeable night
a mounted traveler, well muffled tip in a
great coat, with its broad cape turned-up
over his head like a cowl, his chin ami
lower part of his face buried in a large
bandana handkerchief, and with a broad,
black patch over his right eye, rode np to
the tavern and called for supper and lodg
ing. At the large fire burning in the chim
ney of the barroom he sat and warmed ami
dried himself while his meal was being
prepared, without removing any of his gar
ments, not even so much as his hat, and
when the landlord at length announced
that his repast was ready he simply re
"I have a severe pain in my face, so you
must excuse my going to the table as I
He ate his aupper in silence, and showed
no disposition tor conversation, called for
strong glass of brandy and water, and
soon after asked to be conducted to his
room, adding that he was very much fa
tigued. "By the way," he said to the landlord,
who in person lighted him to his bedroom,
"I may as well leave my pocketbook and
watch in your possession till morning," at
the same time handing t hose articles to
the host, who took them with some reluc
"I reckon they'd be quite as safe here
with yourself, though I'll keep them for
you if you wish me to." -
"You'll oblige me by doing so." relolned
the stranger. ,
"Well, then, said the innkeeper, "I must
know how much money you've got here if
I've got to be responsible for it."
"Please open the pocketbook. then, and
count for yourself," returned the stranger.

cautiously opened the door, looked out and
listened. The storm beat into his face and
howled around his dwelling, but he could
see nothing, not even a light at the inn,
and he heard nothing more that sounded
like a human voice. He shut the door and
fastened it, and then woke up his wife and
told her all. She happened to be a woman
of unusual nerve and courage, and after
putting a few questions replied with a

down to his supposed customers. On open

with two rough looking men, well muffled
up against the storm, which as yet had
scarcely abated in fury. Their horses,
panting, splashed with mud, with droop
ing oeaas, were nitcnea at tne nearest post,
and showed by their looks that they had
been ridden fast and far.
"Did a mounted traveler stop at this inn
last night," abruptly inquired one of the
"Yes," was the answer.
"Is he still here?"
"Will you describe his appearance?"
"As well as I can," said the wondering
host, "for I didn't get to see much of his
face." And he not only proceeded with the
description of his person, but added al!
that the traveler had said and done, in
cluding the affair of the money.
"I think we've got him this timet" said
the one who had addressed the landlord,
turning to his companion.
"It looks like it," was the reply; "but
he's no doubt a desperate fellow, and we'd
better proceed with caution till we make

speaker in a low tone; "a word in your

"I hope the fellow has not heard nsl"

"We will all go np softly and try his

"and if we find it fast perhaps it will be
better for us to remain on guard and wait
till he comes out himself."
The host, light in hand, led the way,
though with seeming reluctance, as if hot
over courageous. On reaching the door,
which the three parties had approached
with light, stealthy steps, the landlord
tried it very gently, and finding it unfas-

next moment the innkeeper exclaimed in

was a deep and ominous silence, and then
one of the officers said, slowly and with
"Landlord, this is very strange!"
"The st rmigext thing I ever knew!" fairly
gasped the innkeeper, glancing around hltn
in frightened bewilderment. "Where can
the man have gone to!
"And this blood too!" sternly chimed in
the other ollicer. "V hat does this mean,

the other ollicer; "for how can we help it

- remap ne s nnout Here yet some

The idea was worthy of atteution, and a
search for the missing mail was forthwith
begun. On looking under the bed blood
was discovered on the floor, and the trail
of this was found to lead out of the room,
aown me stairs nuti out or the front door
showing that the object of search, either
living or deird, hud gone out of the house.
Beyond the building there were no traces,
for the storm had obliterated them. The
hostler was called, the only other man
about the House, but he appeared to be a
kind of stupid fellow, and evidently knew
nothing of the matter, and a look in the
barn showed the stranger's horse still

aud there beheld the hotly of a coarse

believed from its general appearance to be
that of the villain they were seeking; but
whether that of tiie stranger who had
lodged at the cabin no one could tell. The
body was covered with blood, and the man
had evidently died from knife wounds in
Throughout that thinly peopled section
the news spread rapidly, and before night
a large number or excited spectators, in
cluding the sheriff, coroner and two mag
istrates, had collected at the inn. Ad
inquest was held and a verdict rendered
in accordance with the facts; and, though
there was no direct evidence against the
landlord, yet suspicion pointed so strongly
to him as the murderer, that he was taken
into custody and committed for trial,
In due time the trial came on, but the
jury could not agree and were finally dis
charged. A second trial resulted like the
first, and the innkeeper, whose name was
Williams, was kept in prison over a year.
How the nffair would have eventually
terminated had the mystery not been
cleared up in an unexpected manner it is
impossible to say, but ere the time fixed
for the third trial arrived a stranger ap
peared before the magistrate of the couu
ty and deposed that be himself was the In
dividual who had lodged at the iun on the
night of the murder, and for taking whose
lire tne landlord was still in prison.
In the course of his evidence he stated
that he had been a merchant in Philadel
phia, who finding himself on the eve of
failure hud collected a large amount of
money ami run away; and that all trace of
himself might be lost and his death ex
pected, he had adopted the plan of putting
a small part of the money in the hands of
the innkeeper, ostensibly for safe keeping,
and secretly departing in the night on foot,
not Bupponing anything very serious would
result to the landlord from this course of

would explain the traces of blood he had

had for the first time learned with horror
of the almost fatal consequences to the inn
keeper of his unjustifiable disappearance,
and bad hastened to make what reparti
tion lay in his power. His testimony whs
subsequently corroborated on all impor
tant points, and the innkeeper was honor
ably discharged, to the great relief and
joy of his sympathizing friends. As a par
tial recompense for what he had suffered
on his account the merchant made him a
present of the horse and money he had
left with him and (3,000 besides.
But the clearing up of one part of this
strange affair only seemed to involve the
other in still deeper mystery. A murder
had surely been committed, but by whom?
And who was the unfortunate victim?
Even this, in course of time, was also
made manifest. Some years after a vil

that he was a partner of the bank robber.

About Women's Clubs,
Speaking of women's clubs and their
management, a cynical man remarked
thnt he had often thought what curious
gatherings they must be. "Why," he
said, "you don't smoke, you don't drink,
you don't play cards. For goodness
sake, what do you do with yourselves?'
"Well," came the answer from an in
dignant member, "I'll tell you what we
do. We come home sober about 10
o'clock, we don't lose our last cent play
ing poker, we don't smell of smoke and
we don't wake in the morning with a
head and a thirst that makes us empty
the ice pitcher at one gulp. Those are a
few of the incidental things we manage
to accomplish outside of some discus
sions that are not gossip or fashions, nor
yet concern sporting news or politics." -
It is a Chinese superstition that hav
ing a baby's picture taken is a sure pre
cursor of illness, if not death. Strange
ly, the superstition has been apparently
verified in the case of the babr of the
Chinese minister at Washington. The
minister refused to permit the child's
portrait to be made, but the secretary of
the legation, who was disposed to be
skeptical, took the child surreptitiously
to a photographer's. Since then the
baby has been very ill. Chicago Dis-natch.
