ttow often one hears a man say, "Ohl

different when properly construed,
Sol very long since a man who is well
known in Oklahoma was connected
with the arrests of numerous outlaws,
and was spoken of as a brave man from
tho fact that ho placed himself .in bodi

deputy marshal. Tfils "brave man" in
some way1 was suspleioned asliclng Im
plicated In the escape of criminal
from jail, and was placed under bond
Tho time catno around for him to re
cvlte a trial, when lo! this "bravery"
deserted him, and his bondsmen are at
present what is commonly called left.
Was this the act of a brave man? His
conduct nt present proves him to bo an
arrent coward. Tho man who is com
monly termed bravo is tho dauntless
man; he is of such a naturo that the
presence of fear Is unknown to him
