The Editor's Song.
The editor sits at bis table,
Writing as well as he's able,
Paragraphs, leader and puff;
Bis scissors beeide him are lying,
Wilie he ls in agony trying
Of copy to furnish enough.
"Toil, tolL toll !
What a weary life is mine !
Wasting the precious midnight oil
On leader, and column, and line;
Working from morn till night,
Working from night till morn !
Oh I why was that sr cum press ever made.
Oh 1 why was the editor born ?
"Toil, toll, toil !
And whose ls the gain when won?
Whose are the trophies we achieve ?
And for whom are thc laurels won ?
To stand in the foremost rank
Of each hard-fought party fray
To toil and toil, and only get
Abuse and neglect for pay.
"Toll, toll, toil !
What a thankless task is onrs,
To bake the bre*.d and press the cheese,
That Senator Jones devours l
To sit on a three-legged stool.
While others have hair-stuffed scats.
To prepare the hash and cook the stew,
But never to taste the meats !
"Toil, Uti), toil i
As the constant drop on the stone,
Se the ceaseless, endless work,
Wears away body and bone 1
Though the poet splutter and write,
Though the orator bully and brawl,
li lt were not for the editor's pen,
What were the use of it all ?"
TUE GEE?T LIVING SCOUT!
BUFFALO BILL.*
TEE' KING OF BORDER MEN.
The Wildest, Truest Story Ned Buntllnc
ever Wrote.
An oasis of green wood on a Kansas prairie
a> bright stream shining like liquid silver in the
moonlight-a log house built under the limbs of
grest trees-within this humble home a happy
1 group. This is my first picture.
Look well cn the leading figure in that group
Ton will see him but this once; yet on his sad fate
Unges all the wild and fearful realities which are
to fallow, drawn to a very great extent, not from
Imagination, but from life itself.
A noble-looking, white-haired man sits by a
Tough table, reading the Bible aloud. On stools
by bia feet sit two beautiful little girls, his twin
daughters, not more than ten years of age, while j
ft noble boy, of twelve or thirteen, stands by the
back of the chair, where sits the handsome, yet
matronly looking mother,
i It ia the hour for family prayer before retiring
for the night, and Mr. Cody, the Christian, always
- remembers it m the heart of his dear home. *
He closes the holy book and ls about to kneel
and ash Heaven to bless him and protect his dear
ones.
Hark I The Bound of horseB gallcppicg with mad
.peed towards his house falls upon his ear.
"18 it possible there is another Indian alarm P'
fee anya, inquiringly.
Alas, worse than the red savages are riding in
bot haste toward that door.
"Hallo-the house?" ls shouted loudly, as a
large cavalcade of horsemen halt before the door.
"What is wanted, and who are ye?" asked the
good man, as he threw wide open the door and
a?ood opon ita threshold.
"Ton are wanted, yon black-heart-.*! nigger
' "worshipper, and /-Colonel M'Ka'idlas-have
come to fetch you I And ther. 's the warrant I"
As the ruffian leader of the band shouted these
words, the pistol already in his Lands was rais?
ed, levelled, fired, and the father, husband and
Christian, fell dead before his horror-stricken
mmUy.
"If them gala was a little oh'er-but never
nlnd,^oys, this will be a lesson Tor the sneaks
Shat come upon the Border-let's be off, for there's
plenty more work to do before daylight I" con?
tinued the wretch, tu nt m g the head of his horse
torWeaway.
"Stop r>
lt was but a single word-spoken, too, by a boy
whose bice eyes shone wildly in a face as white
?a new-fallen snow and full as cold-spoken as he
artaod erect over the body of his dead father,
"Weaponless and alone.
Yet that ruffian, aye, and all of his mad, reck?
less crew, stopped as if a mighty spell was laid
'Won them.
"Tbv, Jake M'Kandias, have murdered my
Cather I Ton, base cowards, who saw him do this
dark, deed, spoke no word to restrain him. I am
cary Little BU), his son, but as Oed In Heaven
bears me now, I will kin every father's son of you
before the beard grows on my face I"
"Hear the little rooster crow. He'll fight when
fels spurs grow, if we don't cut his comb now,"
. cried the leader, with a mocking laugh, and he
raised his pistol once more.
"Monster, you hare robbed me of a husband;
yon shall not kill my boy," shrieked the mother,
as she sprang forward and drew her son up to
ber bosom.
' "Oclonei, there's a big gang of men comin' over
the prairie. We'd better git," cried a scout, rid?
ing in at this moment.
"Aye 1 For I don't want to kill a woman ir I
eas help lt. Column to the right, boys, and fol?
low me,"
In a minute, at full speed, the party dashed
away after their leader, and the wretched family
vere left alone with the dead.
Fror.cn with terror and awe, the beautifn! twins,
Ullle and Lottie, crept out to thc doorway, where
their mother and brother knelt over the stiffen?
ing form of him who had been so good and kind
their dear father.
Oh, what a picture I Grier was still. Nor sob,
aar tear, not even a moan arose. They were
?dumb with agony-paralyzed with a sense of
otter bereavement.
. . * . ? *
It is now 1801. The old log house has disap?
peared, but m the same noble grove a pretty white
cottage ls seen. Barns and haystacks all tell a
?tory of good farming and profitable results.
On the embowered porch of this cottage sits thc
widow, still in her mourning garb, worn for him
whose death we hare already pictured, and near
ker stand two lovely girls-the twin sisters, Lillie
and Lottie-now ia the early bloom of beautiful
womanhood.
They look alike, are dressed alike, and arc ex?
ceedingly beautiful.
Lillie held a letter ia her hand which the mount?
ed mall carrier had left as he swept by.
"Oh, mamma, mamma! brother is coming
borne I He says he will be here before thc sun
.eta en the twenty fifth I The letter is from Fort
Kearney, and has been long in coming."
*1B not to-day the twenty-fifth?" asked Lottie.
"To be sure lt ls, and he will be here. Our Wil?
liam is wild, bnt he never tells a falsehood. He
4a too proud for that 1 Heaven bless him !" said
the mother, in a low, earnest tone.
"He ls not coming alone,".said Lillie. "He
brings two friends with him. "
"It lacks scarce a half hour of sunset," said thc
mother.
At the same instant Lillie, who had been glanc?
ing through an avenue which led westward in
the grove, cried out:
4,They are coming ! They are coming !"
And three minutes later, their horses frothy and
bot, three riders at full Bpced dashed np to thc
gate fronting the cottage.
"Oh brother I" cried the two sisters, Joyously,
and an heedless of the stranger eyes now look?
ing on them, they rushed out to embrace and kiss
bim.
Buffalo Bill, for this was he, had learned to hide
all his feelings, but with a gentle tenderness he
abook himself ont of their embraces, and present?
ing his two mends by name, hurried on to meet
Ahe dear mother, who with glistening eyes, waited
lo gre^t her idol and her pride.
"My good mother I" was all he said, as he
pressed his manly lips to her white forehead.
"My dear son!" was all she said, but pages
-would not not describe the reverence in bis tone,
cr the undying love in her look.
Bili now presented his friends in more form to

"This, mother,"' said he, presenting :

himself very closely, though he was an in
and hardly so muscular, "this is my mi

Wild Bill, with a natural grace, gently 1
proud head aud took the hand of thc lady,
in a tremulous tone:
"I'm glad to see yon, ma'am, for i've go
old mother that I haven't seen this many
and this rather brings her up afore me I"
"And this other," continued BUI, "i
Tutt. -tie is good on a hunt, death on th
and as smart as bordcrmen are made now
Sow, boys, you're all acquainted, make
selves at home. The darkey out there has
horses, and he'll sec them all right."
Three more perfect men in point of p
beauty never trod the earth.
Wild BiU, six feet and one inch in
straight as an ash, broad in shoulder, rou
full in chest, slender in thc waist, swelling
muscular proportions at hips and thighs
tapering limbs, small hands and feet, hi!
was a "study." His face, open and clea:
regular features, the nose slightly aquilim
large bright eyes, now soft and tender
pression, were a bluish gray in color, sha<
lashes which often drooped over his bi
cheek as he looked down, somewhat confn
female society, to which he was unused
long brown hair feU in wavy masses ov
shoulders, but it was Une, soft and gio*
silk.
The same picture will do for Buffalo BU!,
this difference noted. The eyes of thc lattei
nearer a blue lu color, his height one inch
and his bair a little more wavy and a
lighter.
Dave Tatt, nearly of the same heighi
equally well formed, but there the resemt
ceased.
His eyes were black as jet and deep!
though his features were perfect, and, wht
chose, his expression soft and winning. His
curung slightly, was black and glossy. But
all his beauty, there was a sensual expre
about his mouth, so utterly different from
in thc other two, and a fierce, passionate lo:
in his eyes, which marti the two girls, instit]
in their purity, shrink from him.
After supper the reunited family and
guests were cosily seated In the sitting-:
when Mrs. Cody, whose face was toward the
dow, screamed out in sudden terror, and rc
her feet with a face so deathly pale that it sci
as if she was death-striken.
"What is it, motlier?-' cried Bill, sprlngin
her side.
"The window-.V was there !" she gxsped,
then she swooned away.
..Ile? Girls, look out for mother ! I'll soc '
Tie was at the window !" cried Bill, and he sp
to the open casement.
As he did so, a bullet whistled past his car
struck'.ho opposite wuU, while a hundred
yells proclaimed that Indians had BU ITO Ol
the house.
Wild Bill, cool and collected, instantly blew
both the lights, exclaiming:
"Darkness here and moonlight ont thar I 1
be all right in .a shake. Jump for your u
boys, mine's handy ! Gals, lay low out o' rr.i
we'll soon let the reds know old hands arc he
The three young men, reinforced by three
groes and one white man, thc farm hands, v
ready for work In less than u minute, and as
Indians did not seem disposed to make a rust
the inside of thc house, crept quickly to po
where from tho doors and windows they cc
pick the fiends out from their coverts among
trees aronnd.
Meantime t' <? twins had succeeded in rcstor
the mother to consciousness, and to the hun
inquiry of her son as to whom she had seen at
window, replied that she had recognized the f
of Jake M'Kandlas, the murderer of her h us tia
glaring In with a look so full of hate and vim
Uve cruelty that she was completely hon
stricken.
"There's too many reds out there, or I'd mal:
rush and settle his hash !" said her son. "If h
only stay 'till we thin 'em down a few, I'll acct
modate him with a private entertainment. Li
out for yourselves, girls-the boys are giving '
Jessie, and its about time my hand was in !"
A rapid tiring had been going on from the i
ment WUd BUI got to the door, the Indians she
lng at random, for aU in the house was dark <
cept the flash of the guns; but every now and ti:
a yell of agony told that thc attacking party wi
not going unpunished.
They could only be seen as they sprang fr<
tree to tree for cover, but their terrible yells, rli
lng tbrongh the air, told that in numbers th
were at least ten to one of the defending party
"Whare's the stock? Won't tney try to r
that off I" asked Wild Bill, as his mate, standl
by his side, sent a red to eternity with a sh
from Iiis favorite long rifle.
"I expect they will. I would almost as sc
lose my hair as to lose Powder Face, for the inst
has carried me through more bad scrapes th
I've time to count," Bald Buffalo Bill, referring
his favorite horse.
"And I will lose my hair afore I'll lose Bia
NeU, for she never deserted rae. She'll kick t
head off any red that trios to mount her. B
can't we get to the horses?"
"Wait till I give Dave and the boys in here tl?
orders, and then yon au' me wlU get to the hors
and come lu on 'em as If we were fresh hands
the fight.?
"That's the talk, Bill-that's thc talk. Only 1
me and Black Nell and you and Towdcr Fa
give 'em a charge In the rear and they're go:
in I"
"Pepper into 'em then till I tell thc boys he
where we're are goln', so they'll be keerful ho
to shoot when we're a comln'."
Buffalo Bill now hurriedly told Dave Tutt ar
the meu, who were firing at everything they sa
move among the ti ees, what he and BUI in tea di:
to do. Thc girls and his mother were to kno
nothing of it till lt was alt over, for thc two Bil
felt as sure of driving off thc foe by their plan i
if they were already tn full chase of them.
Dave Tutt did not express any wish to p
along, which rather surprised Buffalo Bill, for
was a duty that brave men would sorely cour
But there was a reason for this, as there is indee
for everything, as the reader will learn by and bj
The two friends, carrying their arms and bern
lng low lu the same shadow of the garden bu6bc:
crept away from the honse until they reached
grain-Held beyond the trees,Into which they move
swiftly. They bad bat a Uttlc distance now to g
to reach the stock pasture, and they got to th
last in tho very ulck of time,
i A half-dozen dusky figures were already then
and the horses, disturbed by tho firing, were vcr;
uneasy as these advanced.
Two shrill calls, understood well by thc anima!
for which thoy were intended, brought two nob!
animals, "Black Ne'i" and "Powder Face," ti
the edge of tho grain-field. The next Instant
needing neither saddle nor bridle, the two mei
were mounted, and without a word, both dashei
forward upon the Indians who were after Uti
stock.
So suddenly aud unexpectedly^ were these over
whelmed-not by a shot being fired, only tin
tomahawk used-that there was no alarm in th<
grove. Then the two men sped on, not noise
lessly now, but whooping and yelling lu wild cou
cert, and urging their steeds faster by their cries,
till they wera u;>on the rear of the astonished red
skins, pouring out shot after shot with deadlj
effect on t he enemy. '
Wheeling and circling herc and there, nevei
missing a shot-;t seemed as if there were i wen
ty, rather than two-Wild KUI and our herc
dashed on, carrying death at every leap.
Thc Indians, who were Cheyennes, supposing
thistobea reinforcement to those who had de?
fended the house so well, aoon gave way and Aid
in every direction, but not before full hair their
number had fallen.
"Curse them, why do they shoot so careless
I 11 F. v. n.iuLijc i UJ
from Hie house-this is the second graze I have
had from there," cried Wild Bill, as he wiped the
blood from a wound grazing his cheek.
"There's a hole in my hat from thc same quar?
ter," said Buffalo Bill. "I'd like to know what
they mean. It can't be but they know where we
are. Never mind-I must hunt np old M'Kandlas
now, for if mother saw him he must be here.
Let's chase them, Bill, as long as we can."
The two men dashed away, and again a bullet,
evidently from the house, passed so close to
Buffalo Bill's head that he felt ita wind.
The Indians scattered far and wide, but the two
men succeeded in knocking over a half dozen
more, when the thought struck them that it was
better not to ge far from the house lest some lurk?
ing behing would continue the attack, and they
rode back.
The search for a white man among the bodies or
the slain was unsuccessful, so Bill decided In Ms
mind that if M'Kandlas had been In the party he
had escaped this time.
As tliey approached thc house they took pains
to make their individuality known by signals
which could not be misunderstood, therefore they
were spared the perils which it seemed friends
rather than their foes had cast upon them during
the charge.
Inashort time, their horses lett close in the
shadow of the house, the two brave friends were
in it once more.
"You can light up, I reckon," cried BniTalo Bill
when he entered. "The reds, or what's left or
'em are on" to their tribes on the run."
"Thank Heaven, you are Rufe," said Mrs. Cody
as she heard thc voice ol her son. "I hope yon
and your brave friend are unharmed ?"
"AU right, mother, but a scratch or two that
cold water will heal-but are yon sure yon saw
the face of Jake M'Kandlas nt the window?"
"Yes, my son-I never can rorgct bis race. I
surely saw it."
"Then he has got off this time. I knew most
ol his gang had gone under, but I didn't think he
had taken up with the Cheyennes. They say that
every tribe in the West except the Pawnees are
going with thc South. If they are, we border
folks will have our haifds full. But we're good
for 'em, aren't we, Pill?" .
"I reckon we are, ir we know ourselves," r-ald
Wild Bill.
The moon had gone down bcrore day dawned,
bat thc repulsed Cheyennes never bated in their
headlong speed until a couple or hours after .sun?
rise, when they had reached a thick cottonwood
grove on the south bank or thc Kepublican Biver.
Here, at thc call or their cider, they dismounted
and gathered around him. By his side, with a
scowl or anger and some show or distrust, too,
in his race, stood Jake M'Kandlas. the White ruf
flan who hud planned this foray.
Looking sternly at him. niter counting Hie war?
riors left, thc old c>.lcf said:
"There will oe a great cry among the squaws in
the lodges of thc Cheyennes. Many warriors
have gone down-their scalps are in thc beits or
i>ar enemies, and we have not a scalp to show
that has been taken in return for ours. What
lias tho Hawk or the Hills to say to this?"
. That which tue Great Spirit wills to bo. win
be !" said M'Kandlas in reply. ''If we had fought
?fi white men light, and charged right on them,
.?ve would new have their scalps in our belts. Rig
Map'c would net listen to my words. He fought
his way and lost hair his warriors. It Ls not my
rault. I have spokes."
"Thc Hawk ol the Dills lus spoken with a sin?
gle tongue. His words are trnp. Bu; thc races
of the tribes will be black when wc go back with?
out scalps. What has my brother to say to that?"
asked tho chicL
"That ir v.f go hack without scalps, we are
fools !" sahl M'Kandlas, quietly, "ir the gun or
Rig Maple misses lire, docs he throw lt away, or
pick the flint and try it ?gain ? There arc more
days and nights than one, and plenty or pale
faces are scattered about thc plains. The Hawk
or thc Hills knows other settlements which we
can reach in two or three days' journey. Wc can
go there tor plunder and scalps, and then come
back here, and when the fighting men arc not
here or arc asleep, we can sprinkle the bones of
our dead with the blood of vegeancc where they
fell.?'
"Thc Hawk or thc Hills speaks like a man. The
heart of Big Maple was weak, lt is strong again.
The warriors will cook meat and eat while their
horses rest and feed."
Light blazing fires, emitting scarcely any
smoke, were now made from dry twigs, and the
warriors made a hearty meal, the first ror twen?
ty-four hours. It was not finished when an alarm
was given by a scout. White men mounted and
armed were coming in from the south.
"They are not those we fought last night !"
said M'Kandlas. "They have not had time to get
to this side of thc river. I will ride out alone and
see who they are. Let my red brothers remain
where they are ready to light or to flee, if they
see that I ara among their enemies."
"The Hawk or the HHLs is a great brave. His
words are good and his deeds go with them,"
said the Cheyenne chief.
M'Kandlas now mounted his horse, pnt a bit or
white cloth on the ramrod or his rifle and rode
out from the shelter of the grove toward thc
group of advancing horsemen, some teu or a
dozen in number.
They halted as soon as ho was observed and
seemed to look to their anns.
He rode boldly on until within two or three
hundred yards when a shout of recognition rose
on both sides and men rode rapidly to meet him.
They were hts own men rroin the Black Hills,
1 whom he had left lhere to carry on his business
ol pillaging emigrant trains, while he came down
on an expedition on his own private account.
"Why are you herc?" he asked, as they rode
up. "What did you leave Cave Canyon for?"
"Because we got sarched out, and scorched out
and whipped ou: pi suid one, who seemed to head
the party.
"Well, boys, i'm glad you are here, for now I'll
do the work I railed in last night. Thal infernal
fiend, Buffalo Bill, with Wild Bill and Have 'Putt,
wiped out over twenty Cheyennes that I piloted
down to the Cody place last night."
"Have Tutt? Why he ls one ol" us-one of our
sort at any rate !" said Prank Stark, thc one who
had spoken first.
"Yea-he used to be, but he's with them now. I
couldn't get no chance to sec him alone, or 1
would have known what it meant. I had my
own idea that he was after one of the gals, for
they're punier than any plctnr that was ever
painted, an I know he's death arter that kind or
game. But ride on, boys, and get something to
eat, and then we'll pian for a nice bit or work to?
night. There's between twenty and thirty
Cheyennes len, and they'll fight like blazes for
revenge."
M'Kandlas now tnrnod and rode back with his
men to the grove, so busy in talkiug with them,
that he did not notice a single person on a hill
beyond the river, who had evidently seen all lils
movements, and who rode off swiftly when the
ruitlau leader entered tho grove.
"There are warriors from my band in the mack
Hills, come to tight by the side of their chief!"
said,M'Kandlas to the Cheyenne chief, as lie and
his men rode up among the camp-lires.
"They are welcome as the rain when the earth
is dry. Big Maple is glad to see them line."
"Kow cook and eal, boys," said M'Kandlass,
"and let your horses rest and reed till wc arc
right. We'll thcu wipe out Buffalo Bill and his
party, and make a raid down thc river as for as
we can and then strike tor the Platte for a rest."
