Sam Iiurkee had a girl. Her name

dried niece of mud from his left boot.
I thought at first he was going to
swear a vendetta on the blade of it or
recite "The Gypsy's Curse." The few
feuds I had ever seen or read about
usually opened that way. This one
seemed- to be presented with a new
treatment. Thus offered on the stage
It would buve been hissed off.
"I wonder," said Sam, with a pro
foundly thoughtful expression, "if the
cook has aiiy cold beans left over!"
He called Wash, the negro cook, and,
finding that be had some, ordered him
to heaf up the pot and make some
strong coffee. Then we went into
Sum's private room, where he slept
and kept his armory, dogs and the
saddles of his favorite mounts. Ha
took three or four six-shooters out of
a bookcase and began to look them
over, whistling "The Cowboy's La
ment" abstractedly. Afterward he or
dered the two best horses on the ranch
saddled and tied to the hitching post.
Now, lu the feud business In all sec
tions of the country I have observed
that In one particular there Is a deli
cate but strict etiquette belonging.
You must not mention the word or re

feudist. It would be more reprehensi
ble than commenting upon the mole
on the chin of your rich mint.
It yet lacked two hours to supper
time, but In twenty minutes Sam and
I were plunging deep Into the reheat
ed beans, hot coffee and cold beef.
"Nothing like a good meal before a
long ride," said Sam. "Kut hearty."
I had a sudden suspicion.
"Why did you have two horses sad
"One, two one, two." said Sum.
"You can count, can't you?"
His mnthemutlcs cnrrled with It n

me not lo rldu at his side on that re.l
road to revenge and Justice. It was
the higher calculus. I was booked for
the trail. 1 began to put more beans.
lu an hour we set forth at a steady
git Hop eastward. Our horses were Ken
tucky bred, strengthened by the nies
qulte grass of the west.
I knew that Hen Tiitum's curd to
play wus flight flight until he enme

big even for the words In the "Una

feud code, but not having practiced It
sulllclenlly 1 overdid the thing by tell

"You don't understand, but he does,"
he said, "lie knows. Mr. Tenderfoot,
there's a rule out here among white
men In the Nation that you can't shoot
a man when he's with a woman. I
never knew It to be broke yet. You
can't do it. You've got to get him in a
gang of men or by himself. That's
why. He knows It too. We all know.
So that's Mr. Hen Tutu in! One of the
'pretty men!' I'll cut him out of the
herd before they leave the hotel!" .
After supper the flying pair disap
peared quickly. Although Sum haunt

fugitives eluded him, and In the morn

with the accordion plaited skirt and
the dapper young mini with the close
cropped hulr, and the buckboard with
the prunclng nags were gone.
It Is a monotonous story, that of the
ride, so It shall be curtuiled. Once
again we overlook them on a 'road. We
were about fifty yards behind. They
turned lu the buckboard and looked ut
us, then drove on without whipping up
their horses. Their safety no longer
lay In speed. Hen Tatum knew. He
knew that the only rock of safety left
to blm was the code.
So you may perceive that woman, on
occasions, may postpone instead of pre
cipitating conflict between man and
man. .But not willingly or consciously.
She Is oblivious of codes.
Five miles farther we cume upon the
future great western city of Chandler.
The horses of pursuers und pursued
were starved and weary. There was
one hotel I bat offered danger to man
and entertainment to beast; so the
four of us met again lu the dining
room at the ringing of a bell so reso

"There's a code," I heard Sam say,
either to me or to himself, "that won't
