THE "FIRST LEUDiy."
Mrs. Nora FI;nn i; a: Rocky
Mountaiun Mining Canup.
Many queer characters drift into
the new and suddenly famous min
ing camps of the west. Nearly all
of them]are drawn thither by the
hope of gain, but now and then one
meets some forlorn, nomadic cren
ture wandering around as though
driven from place to place by a
spirit of unrest. Such a seemingly
purposeless wanderer was Nora
Flynn, an elderly Irish woman,
who some years ago suddenly ap
peared in a Rocky Mountain min
ing camp, 'which was just then
coming into notoriety.
Mrs Flinn was the fir toman
who reached the camp, anrdin the
months that followed, wf.en the
camp had grown to be a ýpiiostls
city, she did not al!ow hisigh
bors to forget the fact.
"I was the first leddy thalt iver
sthruck this town," she wa s fond
of saying. '"Indad-:d an' I was
that! tLere's plinty comie since, hut
mine was the first fenale feet thati
iver walked these strates!"
Mrs Flinn cl:aimed for herself thc

fifty miles to reach the camnp in
which she held this queenly posi

she said frankly, "for I'd not a

Mrs. Flinn seemed to be a woman
without a past or future, since no
one over herd her speak about the
one or the other.
Being a good cook she found im
mediate employm2nt at one of the
large mines as mistress of a board
ing house where there were thirty
five men. Her good humor was as
unfailing as her industry, and sle
always had a bright smile and a
cherry word for the "byes" when,
tiared and hungry, they came home
from the mines to the neat and
Her jokes and ringing laughs
were so constant that there did not
seem to be much depth to her
character, but time proved that she
had a warm and true heart that
could be relied upon in time of
The winter was severe and pnen
monia raged like a scourge in the
camp, its attacks always being se
vere and often fatal at such high
"Have a care nov byes, or you
will be comin' down wid it," Mrs.
Flinn often said to the men at the
cabin. "l)on't go to carousin' round
noights an' w'akitning yerselvcs wid
strong drink an' loss of slape.
Moind that !"
But some of the "byes" did not

of them was brought home wvith the
Then Mrs. Flinn's force ofeharac
ter displayed itself. Night and
day she watched by the sick, one
of the most patient and tender
and faithful of nurses.
Some of her patients died, but
many of them were saved by Mrs.
Flinn's wise and faithful care.
"Brace up, me bye, an' I'll pull
ye troo all roight," she would say,
cheerily; and so she did.
The last one of them was able to
walk around feebly in the sunshi:e
when Mrs. Flinn dropped werily
into a chair one evening, and said
in her usual bantering tonle:
"Well, byes, ye're not goimn' to
have all the sport yerselves. It's
me own turn now to have a round
wid the pneumonia, an' ye can have
the ecrj'yment of takin' care o' me.
How'll ye loike that, ye rascles?"
Four days later a little procession
of roughly dressed men, not
ashamed of the tears in their eyes
and on their rough cheeks, walked
slowly out of the cabin and down
the rocky mountain side. Four of
them carried a cheap, stained pine
collin, the best the pltce affordel,
in which was all that was mortal
of the "first leddy in the camp."

e at.Austin, Texas, and the meeting
0was not in a saloon, a gambling
house, nor even a hotel. The place
was a quiet, orderly ice cream par-'

Thomlpson was a smnll-sized man
n yet not slender. He was elegently,
e yet not showely dressed; his clothes
e indicateda co~- -- taste, a diamond
stud ati'da thread of gold waich
chain comprising all his personal
jewelry. He was a hanlome maI:
r of 45i, with a small, block mustache
and hazle eyes.
s Yet this man had a record of
t having killed 13 white men and
twice that number of Mexicans
and Indians. A few months later
l e was himself killed in San Anto

store he ordered a man with whomii
lihe was engaged in a lively dispute
to go outside and pass around the
block to thie right; he would pass
amound to the left and meet him.i
They did ro; the man i blazed away
at Thompson with a shotgun loaded
with buckshot, mi.ed, went intoI
the air at the crack of lBen's revol- i
ver and fell a corps. º
And thus with every case of
Thompson's numerous killings the
preliminaries were always flvored
with a dash of dr..matic sensation
