The "Utah Terror Comet Near Losing;
His Life Through a Misunderstanding;.
A SlUAHOM's MlSTARI A chap
calling himself the "Utah Terror" struck
this town last Tuesday with a whoop.
As ne.ir as he could figure, the wave of
civilization was nnt due here for five
years yet, while as a matter of fact it
rolled over us more than a year ago.
He was about six years out in his cal
culations. The terror was mounted on
a mule. Once upon a time it was the
proper caper for a terror to ride his
mule into a saloon and drink his
whisky while seated in his saddle. The
stranger headed his animal for the Red
Front saloon and dug in the spurs and
uttered his wjrwhoop, but the next
thing he knew the doctor was probing
for bullets, and he had gone out of the
warwhoop profession. The city r..ar
shal had been looking for such a break,
and he was on the spot to check it
The mule wns killed at the first shot,
but it is believed at this writing that
the man will, in time, recover suftici
ently to .imp out of town in search of
some spot where the good old fashioned
customs are preserved in all their
Not IDENTIFIED Tuesday after
noon last R stranger wha looked as
solemn as if be had buried a wife and
ten children came into town by the
Cherry Valley road on a bay mule and
dismounted at Scott's bank. Some of
the boys sized the stranger up as an
undertaker looking for an opening,
while others had a suspicion. that he
was up to snuff. This state of uncer
tainty lasted about fifteen minutes,
during which time someone unloosed
the saddle girths and attached the
saddie to a hitching post by a rope
about twenty feet long. The stranger
found Mr. Scott alone in the bank and
pulled a gun on him and asked for a
loan of $500. Mr. Scott never loans
money without good security. He
dodged the gun and raised an alarm,
..rid the solemn man bolted for the
street and his mule. He jumped into
th.r saddle with a whoop of defiance,
and when the mule went out from
under him he was probably the most
surprised man in Arizona. He got up
and began shooting, but our efficient
City Marshal, assisted by about twenty
prominent citizens, turned loose on him
and brought his career to a dead stop.
The mule made a bolt for it and could
not be caught, but he bore the brand
of a New Mexico ranch. Nothing was
found on the man to identify him. He
had two guns, . fifty cartridges, $2 in
cash and a plug of tobacco. He was
buried at the expense of the city, and
the look of chagrin which covered his
face as he was laid away was so marked
as to excite general comment. He
probably lived in some back township
where no newspapers are taken and
therefore knew nothing of the changes
of the last five years.
The Sailors Got Seclusion.
Years ago, when the full rigged man-o'-war
was "right in line,'' the Hartford
put into Bjstyn harbor and dropped
anchor off the Charlestown navy yard
one fine day. The Hartford at that
tune was as much an object of wonder
and admiration as the gallant New
York or Boston is to-day, and visitors
flocked aboard her in great numbers.
Her captain, an obliging man, made
every effort to see that his visitors were
well cared for, and personally he
showed party after party over the ship.
At the mess hour it was his habit to
take the curious down to the berth
deck that they might see bow the sailors
ate their meals. That was before they
had tables on board the vessels of war,
and when the mess cloth was spread
on the deck.
The sailors did not mind this at first,
but after , a time it became irksome
They came to the conclusion that their
privacy was being interferred with, and
so finally they decided to put a stop 10
it. The next time the captain took a
party d wn to show them his hap y
family as it paid tribute to the inner
man an old salt, the acknowledged
leader, reached for a certain bowl.
This was the signal, and forthwith a
dozen sunburned, brawny arms weie
stretched forward toward that self same
bowl, and a lively tussel for possession
ensued. Tne captain stood aghast.
Such unseemly conduct paralyzed him,
but b. fore he could recover there was
an appearantly vicious "scrap" going
on, and before his visitors, too. This
was too much for him, and afterward
the sailors partook of their meals un
interrupted. Boston Globe.
