Experience of a Wheelman.
Teddy Dolsou a few nights ago had
an experience compared with which
Tarn o' Sbanter's famous rids pales into
insignificance. Instead of the horse
with which Tarn was equipped, Teddy
had a bicycle ; in the places of the
witches that pursued and plagued and
almost crazed the Scotsman, the Chey?
enne man was followed by hungry
coyotes. Tain, too, had taken a gener?
ous libation of usquebaugh, while Dol
sou's only refreshment was a hearty
supper.
On the evening in question, accord?
ing to his habit, Dolson started out lor
a bicycle run. He had intended to go
a few miles south, then return, but be
iug unacquainted with the country lost
his way, and in endeavoring to regain
his bearings lost himself entirely. He
wheeled on in the direction that Chey?
enne seemed to him to be, arriving at
8.30 o'clock at Wheeler's ranch. 20
miles from Cheyenne.
There he was directed how to get
back to town, and started back on the
trail. Un and on he rode, but in no
fixed direction, for in the darkness be
hud promptly lost his way again on
leaving the "Wheeler ranch. As he
wheeled aloig in the gloomy night over
the untracked prairie, wishing for noth?
ing on earth so much as a comfortable
bed, he became suddenly aware of the
fact that he was being closely followed.
Behind him was a pack of yelping,
howling coyottes, that were close upon
him before being noticed. There in?
tention was so evident that his waning
energies were awakened with a thrill.
He bent over his wheel and pushr d it
as fast as he could over hill and valley,
but always closely followed by the co?
yottes.
To add to his misfortunes, he broke
a pedal in attempting too great sj eed,
and was on the point of giving oui and
letting the hungry coyottes do their
worst when he spied a deserted shack
a short distance away. To this he has?
tened, and, abandoning his bicycle,
climbed upon the root that slanted up
from the ground. Even here the co?
yottes followed him, but a coign of
vantage and place of refuge was found
on the top of the chimney.
All night he remained there, at times
driving away his pursuers with frag?
ments of bricks, which caused their re?
treat to a short distance, whence, after
a series of lugubrious howls, the*
would return to the attack. At day',
light they departed with a parting sa?
lute of angry howls, and Dolson climb?
ed down aud mounted his bicycle, soon
reaching Pierce station on the Denver
Pacific, 3S miles from Cheyenne.?
Cheyenne Leader.
Ezeta Tells His Story.?Gen. An?
tonio Ezeta and his refugee companions
from San Salvador declare that the
charges of murder and robbery , prefer?
red against them are easily explain?
able.
Ezeta says that between the 20th of
April aud May three battles were
fought near Santa Anna, in which his
forces were defeated. Ezeta was wound?
ed in the head on May 3, aud was con?
cealed in a house. Two weeks later,
with 3000 of his followers, he made his
way to the seacoast.
There he found the Bennington and
asked for refuge until the steamer San
Boules on her way north arrived four
days later. When the San Boules ar?
rived, the refugees were not allowed to
board her, but were kept against their
will on the Bennington.
Ezeta explains the charge of murder
against him by saying that he did not
kill the man, but that thet amsterwho
tried to iutercept him was shot by one
of his men, an American. Lieutenant
Coffin corroborated the story as regards
the bank robbery. Ezeta says he took
the money from"the bank and gave his
receipt for it as president of the repub?
lic, and used it in the pay of his soldiers.
This he claims he had a right to do
under the law of the country." General
Bustamento, who is accused" of hanging
four men, states he hung them, but
said the men were deserters from the
army. In fact, all the offenses charged
against the refugees are explained by
them as committed while attempting to
fulfil the laws of the country.

Another word to the good people of Alex?
andria. To those who were wise enough to give
us a <all and to inspect the offerings we have
been making for the last few weeks, it is need?
less for us to say anything in the way of ex?
planation of what we are doing. Our bar?
gains are more convincing than columns of
argument and our prices more eloquent than
mere words. But to those who are sby and
back ward, and who are suspicious of "sales"
gotten up now and then by merchants to boom
business, we desire to say a few words to-day.
In the first place wo want you to under?
stand that this is no "fake" selling out. It
isn't done for pleasure, and it isn't done for
profit. Stern necessity caused the institution
of this sale. Stern necessity fixed the prices.
Stern necessity again demands a cut in prices
regardless of the value, cost and desirability
o'the Goods, Wares and Merchandise we have
still or hand
Tiic law says that this estate must be speed?
ily wound up, and wind up is the word even
'f wo have to practically give the goods away.
Now, if we have convinced you that this is
a bona fide clearing out. and have gained
enough of your confidence to have you be?
lieve that our object is to get rid of the goods
we have at any prices, wo will, for the pur?
pose of convincing those who have not visited
our MAMMOTH SLAUGHTER SALE that
we offer the bargains of a life-time, quote
some prices we have made on popular and de?
sirable goods. Figures, wo know, don't lie, so
we will let them speak for themselves. Look
over our list carefully, and if yoti see anything
you want, cut out the advertisemaut, aDd put
you finger on the article and come to ns, and
you will get the stuff exoctly as advertised.
To our numerous friends who have been in to
see us so often lately, we desire to say only
that this picnic can't last much longer. Make
hay while the sun shines. Our loss is your
gain. A word-to the wise is sufficient.
Watch our figures. Here goes:

in this advertisement
After perusing the prices given above, can
any one candidly say that we are not ready to
make good any promiso we havo m .de V Why,
we could sell to shop-keepers at theso'prices;
but we prefer to give the people the benefit
of thi? opportunity. Our unprecedented suc?
cess heretofore in this cale makes us anticipate
a very lively week after this great cut, and
we therefore advise thoso who intend to take
advantago of it. to call early, so wo can give J
them the benefit of a better choice and bet' )r
attention. The wide-a-wake man and woman
are the pe; Jons who get along best now; and
they are rrleep to tbeir own interests who
will permit this chance to go by without se z
ing the opportunity to profit thereby.
