In his flight Rube accomplished the most
daringly reckless feat of his life In dlsgulxo
ho actually joined tho pose anti aided tn
searching far himself Ills Identity was not
discovered until he bad disappeared
With three ot the tlnest bloodhounds tho
State the chase was renewed on Tuesday
morning but tho trcks renlwot outlaws had
grown cold and the dogs could not follow
Irown crowd had become weary of doing noth

carrying n Winchester and two pistols dashed
into the group on a Ueetfootoil black lucre

Grove three miles off somo on horses mules
and ponies a few walking nnd a dozen riding
In wagnnn During the march tho big man on
the black horse was ut the head of the line for
awhile anti then at the rear or In the centre of
tho crowd listening but talking very little
The man was lube Burrow but not moro titan
two men in the posse who were his Irionds
and whu had joined to help protect himknew
him
At the place where it was supposed Rube had
crossed the road inn does scented something
and sturtud through the woods The posse
followed at gallop arid for a mile the chase
wax lively The trail then turned nnd ended
a a cabin Bubo was not there The only
person there was an old man who said ho had
been walking through the woods Tim croud
was angry und looked for the big man on the
nnlr
black niece hut ha had gone Ruhe had sent
the posse off his track and had returned to the
house of a friend on one of the mountains
Whoro ho had left Jackson
That ended the chase In Blount county The
posse disbanded and the detectives left that
section to await another train robbery and
start another chase not however without
heavily armed assistance for none could bo
found to attempt recapture Rube singlehand

A day or two after tho battle in Sand Moun
tain the writer spent a few days In Lamar
county at the homes of lubes father nnd Jim
Cash his brotherinlaw Ho bore a letter
from Congressman Bankhead of Alabama
who Is a native of Lamar county and who
knew Allen Burrow Old man Burrow who
in his younger days I Is said conducted a
moonshine still has for years lived quietly on
his farm In a neat little house that Rube built
for him Although OS of ha Is
AIhoulh ear ago a
srralcht as nn Indian and very tall and mus
cular He talked freely about Huba and ex
1rossed himself a proud ot his many daring
achievements In train robbing
I am not afraid of Bubo being captured
be said Des too sharp for any of tho do
teethes that have been around hero and b
sides hes a powerful good rifle shot
Tlio old man did not believe Bubo murdered
Postmaster Graves Bubo hasnt lone half
the things he I accused of he continued
Every time a ptoni Is broken open or a safe
robbed anywhere aiound this country lube Is
accused of It Yes 1 ramomber be was here
once when a robbery was committed over In I
another part ot the State and the paper all
said Butte Burrow did it ltub roin trains
sall ho dont do the other kind of stealing
Are you uot afraid Bubo will be Llllod some
tlmn while he Is robbing a train 1
Not a bit of It ho replied Why Bubo
SS Its as easy to hold URn train as it Is to rob
a hens nest
Itubes boy is now U years of age and he Is
a chip of the old block He is thoroughly
familiar with hlB fathers record and a year ago
when asked what ho was going to do when
grown ho replied 0 Im just wulilnn to be 10

During the visit to old man Burrows homo

while longer and then the fun commenced Wo
took good aim ivory time and who cm the
bost our Winchesters hnd I bellevn my llrnt

one on that fellow Woodward I reckon and

comlortablo been in uur feelings as wo might ha > o
As wo run out Rube continued we kept
up Bhootln ut every tallow who bolo1 up and
then wo left nnd wo was In a pretty big hurry
too for If them fellows was scared there aint
no use In taking ton many chances
Then Ituho told of spending a part of Satur

VII
The day following that of the Interview Rube
boarded a train on the Kansas City Memphis
and Birmingham Railroad attho little station
lto staton
of Gattman Miss Ho was accompanied by
Jackson and a red bloodhound Tho men took
tho rear seat of a passenger coach In order
that the > might not bo surprised When tho
conductor cause In for faros he evidently sus
pected the men but ho said nothing They
role to Amory a station twenty miles distant
in Mississippi and went through tbo woods
Bubo was heard of and seen many times
during last winter On one occasion ho board
ed a Georgia Pacific train In Alabama and rode
Quito a distance He was heavily armed but
interfered with nobody and nobody cared to
interfere with him He had boon In Birming
ham frequently within tho past few years but
bo was not recognized In fact ho would go
wherever he chose without fearing arrest
He was noted for taking desperate and reck
less chances In Lamar county however
generally remained in hiding knowing that I
discovered by detectives or his enemies they
I would bring troops down on his relatives and
cause trouble for them row people In Iamar
county care to say anything about Rube or
an of his family The Invariable reply is
lubes never dono anything to me and Ive
nothing to say In7thinf It Is however
evident that tbo death of tho outlaw Is 1 relief
to the entire county
For tho past six months Tube had been
chased by a score of detectives some In tho
employ of the Southern Express Company and
others after the reward of 7UO Jackson and
huntS hobos cousin captured
Hmlh Jubce wore c llured recently
lube was chased Into Florida three months
too but he successfully eluded the detectives
without a fight

only a few weeks ago when slnulohandod the

express car but of how much the express com
pany oltlclalg have never told All told hn
pipbably rohbed the Southern Exi > ro s of
KifiUOO and thuinmpany spent 20000 in ef

But for Bubo burrows utter recklessness bo
would have been free today Ho met u man

and not by a professional detective
VI r
The great outlaws death aa the readers of
THE BUN already know was a dramatic onl
nilnntlon of his violent career Courage a
matchless as his own punished with death a
re < kltes piece ot bravado to which the robber
resorted after he had freed himself from bonds
by ono of the simple tricks which hU fertile
brain supplied for every emergency Ha
was always reckless but his unfailing success
In outwitting every plan for his capture had
made him as careless as a man on whose head
rested no price The reward offered for his
capture was a fortune in the estimation of the
people of the Alabama mountains
Burrow often rotortod to disguises but
when wandering about the sparsely settled re
gion eight or ten miles from Linden a week
ago he wo recognized by a crossroads store
keeper named J Carter Without betraying
his suspicion Carter followed the outlaw a lit
