Calhoun was a cattleman's town,
LI in this warm May weather Jeph
son's saloon bubbled over with cow

grade of blackguardism. Here and
there, however, you might find an
American, and even more frequently
an Englishman of good up-bringing,
-ho had drifted into the whirlpool of
cow-punchig" as some men drift to
sea before the mast, through inclina
tion, possibly for a wild, unconven
tional existencc. An Englishman, of
this 'class, one May morning, swung
himself out of his saddle at Jephson's
to fortify nature With a 'whiskey on
his way south. lie was the son of a
manufacturer in Lancashire, England,
and his brothers vere being educated
for the Army and the Church, while
he, John Ogden, the eldest, twenty-one
years old this day, was a wanderer on
the western prairies, earning a living
as a "cow-puncher."
John Ogden had done fairil well.
He was not without self-control anI
living in a land where all men went
about armed to the teeth. he had kept
his temper so far, and had never been
in z-ious trouble.
The bar was crowded at Jephson's
today, and it was some minutes before
'John could _et his drink. When
served, he withdrew to a table and sip

They both laughed, and then re
lapsed into silence, while John looked
curiously at tl-e- man who had aroused
this comment. He was tall, broad and
stout, with long heavy face, thick lips,
and beetle brows, Coarseness and
brutality were written in every line
of that face, and his eyes small, rest
less, and near together, containedl a
sinister expression that madle the Eng

Sheriff did not notice Ogden. He was
seeking for familinr faces.
The swing door opened again to ad

A nionth later the spring round-up
was over, and John Ogden was a free
man, with $10) in his pocket, prepar
ihg to take summer holiday. This he
dlelded to spend in Caloua City. The
reason which drev him to Calhoun
was one which he would not even own
to himself-homesickness. ''he rail
road had now reached the town, and,
it was sail, had brought a cargo of
1eople from the East docked out in
the glories of civilized attire, and John
longed to see anything that would re
mind him of old days. So to Calhoun
he went straight away, an~d to Jeph
son's. There, on the second day, he
met the Sheriff, and a pleased light
came into Lassiter's crafty eyes as at
the sight of something he had wished
to see for a long time.
"Hlev a drink." he said cordially.
'My turn now. Order yourself."
Ogden did so, his rigl.t hand within
easy grasp of his revolver. But no
move was made against hini, and after
close observance of the nian he came
to the conclusion that none would he
ma-le. Durt Lassite:- was a coward.
This matter cleared ii. John settled
down for a game of cards. He was

with a wrinkled face like a monkey's
and a high-pitched voice.
He took no notice of John's request
excpt to say sharply:
"Come in an hour."
Now considering the mail-hag was

Wealthy Woman Lawyor Who is
friend of the Pcnnifess Prisoner.
Filly years of her life spent in help
ing others to freedom. That is the
record upon which Marilla Ilicker.
one of the greatest women philan
thropists of the country, may look
back upon as long as she lives.
Keen knowledge of the law, a
supreme sense of justice and money to
spend where and when she will, are
the three things which have helped
Mrs. Ricker to open the gates for
thousands of accused persons and per
mit them to go again into the light
of the world for another try at life.
Fra Elbertus. that interesting man
those picturesque haunt at East Auro
ra is a garden spot. has said that
".Justice is a cOlUludity and the price
:s high." Not so where Mrs. Richer
is concerned. The unfortunate man
or woman who finds himself or her
self in the prisoner's dock and calls
for aid from this public spirited Wo
man may pay if the money is there
if not, Mrs. Ricker sees the case
through, goes on to the next one with
necvcr a thought of the unpaid justice
In the long fifty years during
which Mrs. Ricker has worked un
ceasingly for the acquittal or release
o' accused persons she has known
every class of criminal from the mur
derer dovn to the tough broughit up
for petit larceny. She has known
gamblers and thieves, great and small;
v omen of the streets and men about
town, but for all of these she has
found place in her heart and her prom
ise to "see them through" has uone
more for many- a man and woman than
the services of a hundred clergymen.
Mrs. Richer does not pray with her
clients. She brings to bear that great
common sense in which at that time
sound argument rather than religious
prating does more for the cause of a
c'riminal in the dock and brings to
the court's mind a clearer insight intc
the case righr. then before him.
Mrs. Ricker has a unique person

her ready' wit, in~fectious laugh and
clear insight makes everybody about

the one who of all in the vast army
of wealthy women devotes her time
and money toward freeing unfortun
ates. Mrs. Richer believes in free
dom. It makes no difference whether
or not the person she is defending is
guilty or innocent. She is working
for his freedom and means to get it.
Elbert Hubbard, (Fra Elbertus)
wrote of her recently: '"Marila! who
is MarIla I'll have to tell you-she
is Marila Ricker. Crank? I think so.
Wheels? By all means. Bughouse?
Beyond a doubt. Everybody who
knows her loves her: those who do
n:>t love her do not know her. And
there are plenty of people who do
not know Marila Ricker because their
mental processes run on a totally dif
ferent schedule from hers. They are
n:>t on her wire. I once heard her
cquote the prayer of St. Augustine:
"O Godl I thantik Thee that thou hast
seen fit not to allow me to be tempted
this day beyond my strength to re
sist." The life business of Marilla
Rick-er has been to he a friend to the
friendless-to be a friend even to those
who were not friends to themselves."
