THE HUNTER'S LAST BULLET.
A WESTERN ADVENTURE.
BY CAPT. T. MAXWELL, U. S. A.
One bright, beautiful forenoon, some four
days, and three hundred miles after we had
pnfsed the last outpost, some live or six of the
old veterans of the North West Company's
men, who were returning with us from the
lower 6tation on the Yellow Stone, proposed,
as the Btenmer drew along side of the bunk to
wood which fur the last lour days had been
done by cutting and splitting the green scrub
oak, poplar, nni such other small growth as
grew along the bank most convenient to the
boat, and placing so much ns we could of it on
the top of tbe boilers to kiln dry those old
hunters proposed, as 1 was about to say, to
have a vbort bulTalo hunt while tbe steamer
"Now then, lads," said old Judah Gaily, as
he led his Indiau mustang ashore and tlung
himself into the saddle the last of our party
"now lads, we're all ready, and we'll keep this
trail right on up tbe river to the little Walnut
Bottom where we shall find buffalo any lime
Off we went at a "brisk canter, all excellent
ly mounted and each armed with a prime ritle,
besides the usual oalin pecHliar to the front
ier, coimisliug of pistols, and a delicate piece
of steel some fourteen inches in length, hnlf
an inch thick in the buck, and keen enough
shnve very ck-veily will), which arbitrary cus
tom had christened and made famous as the
It was ubfut ten A. M., when we left tne
steamer, and so well did our horses perform
after their six day's rest, that by half-past
twelve we raised the sharp ridge which cut
the course of the river at right angles, nearly
twenty miles by the channel, and over hlteen
by the route we bad come, from the steamer;
and ten miuutes thereafter we were tearing
headlong down the northern slops of the ridge,
urging our horses like mad men to fall upon
herd of full a thousand buffaloes, most
whom were drinking when we first discovered
At first old Judah raved and shouted and
cursed us for crazy, know-nothing fools for thus
driving right in among a herd of buUaloeR,
among which thero were doubtless at least
thirty monster bulls, who would trample
to death as easily as a mastia could crush
mouse beneath bis paw.
But the old hunter's warning was lost upon
my companions, who bad sucked at their side
arms during the ride till they were utterly
reckless of every thing. As for myself, that
was my first appearance upon tbe prairie
stage in the character of a buffalo hunter, and
little did I know or care of the danger attend
ant upon an experiment like ours.
When Gainly saw that all warning was use
less, he gave a tremendous whoop, and dash
ing forward at the head of our little troop,
"Come on ye cursed fools I ye'll learn some
thing before ye git out of this bottom, or
name aint Judah Uainly."
On the level bottom, and about a hundred
rods from tbe base of the ridge, was a belt
wood, or rather brush, which hid the buffa
loes from our sight as we gained tbe level
ground; but from the great tramp we could
hear on the other side, we judged that
herd were all a-foot and rolling off towards
We were mistaken; for just as we reined
in our horses on the edge of the belt of brush
wood, which we found to be impassable,
quick cry of alarm from one of our party, call
ed our attention to the river bank not three
hundred yards distant, and there stretching
from the wood to the base of the ridge, was
solid wall of curly pates, vast humps
brawny shoulders of at least two thousand an
imals, which had been erncealed by the bank,
so that we bad not seen them Irom the ridge.
On they csme that avalanche of monsters,
with smoking nostrels, gleaming eyeballs,
their short, stumpy horns forming a serrid
hedge more formidable than ever did the bay.
onets of Napoleon's favorites, the invincible
"Back to the ridce. before they corns upon
us!" yelled two or three of our number; and,
very calmly. Old Judah commenced to reply:
"Back to the rides, eh? Fools t which
roil have ever seen a horse which has been
ri.irlan fifteen mile, keen Base with a buffalo
hullf It is full three hundred rods to
foot of the hill, while those fellows are less than
so mnny yards from us. You soe we must
"Hal by the heart of John Jacob Astorl
we are in a tight place now, lads," he yelled
out, as he was interrupted by the dull, lazy
w liia of at least a dozen rifle bullets, somo of
which came most sociable near our persons,
as I myself judged from a sharp lap on my
metal canteen strung under mv left arm and
a rather keen cut aperture through the lap'
pell of my hunting frock.
"Wow ye see, lads, we must work our hor-
sen into this thicket if we can, ao far that none
of them rollin devils will get afoul of us, and
wben they are nil past, wo must steer for the
river, for yon fellers are Crows, and we had
butter take our chance among the horns and
hoofs of these critters, than to get within range
of ihc:n red nitrsrer's rifles. Cornel come,
lads I In with ye 1"
But tho old hunter's advice hnd occupied
several moments of our time that should have
been devoted to digging into tho brambles,
and ere a single horse had made a break in
the densa wall of briars, twigs and foliage, the
buffaloes, with a plunge, a roar and a crash,
were upon us.
In a moment we were separated, and one
here, another there, in among a hedge of horns,
and amid a continuous roar of buffalo bull
thunder, we were borne on, helpless and im
potent in the centre of the vast herd, while at
short intervals, I could hear the sharp ringing
report of the Crow rifles, followed by the
whisllo of their bullets; but as if by a very
miracle for full twenty minutes, during which
time the herd was confined between the belt
of brush-wood and the ridge, we were hurried
along with them, without any one of our num
ber receiving the slightest injury cither from
the bufialoes or our friends, the Crows.
At last wben the head of the belt of timber
was gained and the herd began to spread out
and swept away to the westward, by some
singular chance the old hunter and myself
were flung together and at the same time, out
clear of the buffalo stream on the left.
For a singls instaut we reined in our horses,
and as we did so, I pointed to the Indians
some fifty in all, I should think who had rid
den along the summit of the ridge, keeping
just about the same distance from us that they
bad been at first.
"Yes, I see the red thieves," said my com
panion very calmly, as his eye followed the
direction of my finger. "I see 'em, Leften-
ant, and I a an teil ye that they all carry the
Cincinnati rifle. Too light to kill a hard shell
ed old feller like me this distance. But our
boys are all off west with the buffaloes; and
we are left here to hop and dodge with these
"Well we must back towards the river, and
ford it somewhere; for you see them skunks
are dividing about forty of 'em are coming
down to follow the buffaloes and our fellers,
and them other sneaks ten of 'em will hang
round till they wing us, unless we play Indian
better than thev can. Come Leftenant," and
the next moment wo were dashing along to
wards the river, while the ten C rows were
gradually closing iu with us they urged on
their horses towards the river.
We were within perhaps two hundred yards
of tho bank, wben the heads of at least thirty
Indians were thrust up above tbe feathery
scarf of fern that drew along tbe edge of the
"This won't do, Leftenant," said the old
hunter, apparently not in the least moved
far as 1 could discover. "It won t do, sir,"
and he caught ray left hand bridle rein whirl
ing mv horse's head awav from the river along
with his own; and both dashed ott over the
ground jus-t traversed. Old Judah went on
"It 8 no use Lieltenimt, to try tor tne river
now. lnere s five liunurea ot tne inievin
Crows on the. other sido ; and our only chance
is now to distance the devils on the bills there,
and get far enough ahead of 'em to cross the
river and pull out tor the steamer. Ana now
Leltcnant, don t worry your animal in the
start, and above every thing else, don't waste
a single bullet We shall want 'em every
one before we ever get clear,
At the moment we turned to retrace
steps, the savages whose beads wo had only
seen above the fern, now. rose fully into
view, horses and all as they rushed up
bank; and in less than thirty seconds, fifty
the red fiends were thundering along the nar
row prairio on our trail, while the warriors
the hill-side came yelling on after, or ra'her
abreast of us, keeping up a drooping are which
we were too busy to reply, until they come
within surer ranee of our heavier pieces
which ,ot the rate we were going we began
hope there was a little prospect of their doing.
For nearly ten miles along tne nortnwest
em base of the ridge, our flight had contin
ued ; the herd of butUloes, with our compan
ions, had lone since disappeared in the north
ern bend, tho crows had dropped off, one
ter another, until not more than a dozen
sides those on the ridge, continued the race,
and those were mostly a mile or more behind
and losing ground every moment
But them was seven of the warriors
whom in all that desperate race we had
trained a single inch
Four of these wero of the party on tiro ridge
while the other three were of those who
followed along the plain,
"Look ye here, Leftenant this won't nev
er answer," said Old Judah, suddenly reining
in his horse and at the same moment grasp
ing the bridle of mine and almost flinging
back upon his haunches; "I tell ye sir,
must drill a hole or two in them chap a skull:
or they'll cut us off sartain sure, before we
cret across the ridce. Now my advice is, Lef
tenant, that you take these three rascals
the prairie in hand, while I look after those
other becrarara on the bill side."
"But listen youngster you must mind
the cunning devils don't dodge your bullets.
Thev' exnect vou to aim at their neaas,
then t the flash of your piece, they'll
themselves flat along their horses' necls, or
may be drop ncrht down along side of the
imal so that your bullet'll go wbistlin without
touchin nothin, So you see you, must

and ten to one you'll bora hole square in

4 he last word did scarce pass me upsoi
companion, when I followed bis advioe to
the Utter, bv sineW out ths foremost Indian, In
drawing a "bee" on him, or rather on his liorse
just clenr of his shoulders. I observed that
at the flush of my riflo, every one of the three
Indians fell prostrnlo on' the necks of their
horses, wiih their beads no higher than those
of the animals.
My customer was mistaken that time, how
ever, for a moment after I fired, he sprang
bolt upright, dropped his rille, an' after fling
ing his arms about in the most violent man
ner, for a few breaths, he toppled over back
wards and fell heavily to the ground.
"Thai's the fashion to count up our tallies
on the bloody red thieves, Leftenant I" obser
ved Old Judah, in a tone of exultation, as the
sharp crack of bis rifle followed mine, and one
of the sidchill warriors plunged headlong from
his saddle "that is the way to talk to 'em
lad. Both them chaps got our bits of lead
square in the top of their gourds right thro'
their brains if so bo these infernal red skunks
have got any brains."
"They're cunning devils though, and our
next bullet wouldn't wing 'em iu that way.
No, no, you hold on your fire, till you see how
no hangl asoon as you're ready, we'll both
fire togclhet but this time aim about four
feet from tho horse's back just about at
their heads as they sit in their usual way.
What say are you ready?"
"Aye, aye, Judah all ready."
"Well, blaze away fire"
At the simultaneous flashes of our rifles
the five surviving Indians leaped to their feet
on the backs of their heroes, and then quick
as thought, two of them dropped their weap
ons, clapped thetr hands to their breast and
plunged headlong forward over their horse's
heads to the ground.
"Fooled again 1" shouted the old hunter in
an exultant tane; "Leftenant, there's not ma
ny of thase red western niggers that has got
cunning enough to play rifle and tomahawk
with old John Gainley."
"But look ye here ye may venture to
cross the ridgo now." and within fifteen sec
onds we were dashing up the ascent, crossing
the Indian s course at right angeles, not six
ty yards distant; but as there were only three
of them left, we had little apprehenswn on
their account; having up our minds to pick off
ths three fool-hardy fellows before we had
gained the summit of the ridge, and then
rido back to the steammer more at our leis
We were hall way up the bill, with our
rifles loaded, and iuBt about to rein up for
another pop at the Indians, when I mado the
iscovery that some how in dashing through
the brushwood, the hammer of my rifle had
got cought and wrenched entirely off so that
the gun was useless.
Almost at the same moment that I discov-
red the accident to my rifle, an exclamation
of despair from the lips of my companion fell
on my ears, and as soon as he could speak co
erentlv, l learned tnat he bad met with an
accident little less serious than mine, in as
much ns he had lost his bullet pouch, some
where below us, and there he was, with only
a single bullet and that one tn his gun.
for a few moments tins stalwart, hard fea
tured old hunter fairly foamed at the mouth,
like a mad dog, and roared in his mad excite
meut But he soon quieted down, and after
trying my bullets and finding them considers'
bly too large for his rule, he spoke to nie as
calmly as ho had any time during the day
"This is bad Leftenant mighty bad. We
must make the best we can of it, and we must
trutt to Providence and our horses' bottom
But look ye here lad 1" he sung out, just as be
had gained the crest of the ridge 'two of them
red devils are belter mounted than we are.
I have seen that since we have began climb
ing this ridge. And now with your assistance
Leftenant I'll try and clip them two fast ones
at one shot, nfter which we can settle tbe last
ono unless he runs away; or run away our
selves, just as we please.
Old Judy dismounted as he spoke, and giv
ing me the bridle of bis horse, which he re
quested me to lead down the hill side at
smart gallop, and in a straight line as we had
been going, he began looking about him tor
some place ot concealment his quick ey
caught a cavity in a huge old chestnut tree
close by the sido of tha trail, and as I urged
my two horses down the slope at their best
speed which, considering that the descent wss
at an angle of tull tbirty-uve degrees from tne
plane of tho horizon, was not at 2,40 speed or
m the most approved stule of equestrian ele
gance-as l went uown tue niii t saw oiu juue
crawl into the hole iu the old tree, and disap

I was half way down to the bottom of th
hill when two sharp reports and a moment la
ter. the hissing of two bullets as the cut tt
air (I guess) within ten inches on either sid
of my head ; told me, beyond question that my
lndiand friends two ol tnom certuiniy wereae
termined to keep up a leaden correspondence
with mo at least.
A single glance over my shoulder, showe
me the two Crows, urging their horses aow
the steep slope at their best speed, while by
the way tbey had slung their rules across inoi
sbuuldiers, without reloading tnem i Koe
thev iudged my companion must have fallen
from a wound received on the other side of
the ridge, and as they considered me sure
came, tbev did not deem it worth while to lose
anything of the distance between us, by reiu
ing in their horses to reload their rifles.
Thirty seoonds might have passed after the
two shots were fired, and I had almost gained
level ground, when I beard a most unearthly
whoop, which I knew in a moment to come
from the old hunter, and turning in my saddle
I saw the two Indians who had fired at me,
stopped, stock still, and were loading their ri
fles, apparently in the grea.est possible hurry
while some hundred and fifty yards furtheriup
the hill side, stood Old Jude iust in the act of
taking aim at the third savage, who had raised
ths ridge and how came sweeping down the
trail with his rifle levelled on the hunter. At
the instant that I was looking for the flash of
ray companion's rifle, the old frontiersman let
fall the muzzle of his weapon, and a breath la
ter, dropping it entirely, he drew himself np
to his full height, and turning toward the sin
gle Crow be uttered a taunting wnoop ot oen
ance which drew forth a wild yell of rsge from
ths savage w ho earn driving on with furious
speed, still covering tho hunter with the muz
zle of his ride.
He was scarcely thirty yards from the old
backwoodsman, when withunt checking the
speed of his horse in the least, he fired; but
his bullet whistled harmlessly ty, over the
prostrate form of the wary old hunter, who
quick as thought dropped to the earth at the
Hash of the Indian s rule.
The treraenduous whoop of the hunter had
startled the two Crows beneath him, and with
their half loaded rifles tbey sat there apparent
ly bewildered and half slupified by tlm sudden
appearance of Old Jude there in their rear;
while the single Crow came thundering along
down the hill-side, his horse grown unmanage
able, his rifle unloaded, and hiraswlf accustom
ed as he was to rough riding, scarcely able to
maintain his seat in his wild, plunging course
down that rugged steep.
Almost before one could have counted ten
the horse had borne his savage rider to the
spot, where the hunter now no longer prostrate
but standing in the path, grasping in his hand
fragment of rock that a giant miirht have fail-
d to wield, while his left was outstreched, as
to the next breath revealed hie whole in
tention; for as the horse came dashing on, the
veteran hunter grasped him by the nostrils
itb such a powerful grip, that in an instant
tbe frighened mustang was quivering back up
on its haunches, while the Crow was hurled
iolently to the earth, which he had barely
touched when down came the ponderous rock
pon his naked head, mangling and crushing
is face and skuil out of the very shape of hu
Scarcely bad the rock left bis hand, when
old Jude snatched his rifle from the ground,
leaped upon the tack of the dead Indian's po-
nnd with an unearthly wboop, dashing
ght on down the steep pbthway towards the
wo remaining Crows, who at if panic stricken
at the death of their comrade and the strata
gem of the old hunter, turned and find for life
while- the cause of tneir terror came yelling
and whooping on in swift pwisuit
When the two Crows passed me thpy were
so near, and so wholly defenceless, that I could
easily have brought either or both from their
horses with the butt of my gun. But I was
so abrorbed by the interest 1 took in the sin
gular race that I scarcely noticed the tu-
itives, permitting then, to pass by unmoles
As old Jude passed use, I observed that be
was guiding his horse from side to side as he
dashed uloug the trail, holding the hide reins
between bis teeth, while he every few mo

that his intention was to get them in ranga

He had passed me perhaps thirty yards and
the Crews were some fifty more ahead of turn
wben a sudden turn in the truil brought them
into line and in less than three seconds the
bullet from old Jude's rifle, sped on its mission
Striking the nearest in the back of the neck
at the junction with the spine, it passed out
through his throat, and hit tbe other who
must have turned his bend on the instant as
the bullet bit bim in the right eye, which it
tore from its socket and then buried itself in
Thirty minutes later, we were scouring a-
cross the prairies towards the steamboat lund
ing with three extra rifles, the same number
of horses, and several articles of Crow proper
ty which was of small value except as troph
ies of victory.
On the following day we picked up tha re

hour thereafter, we were off on another buffa
Save your Earnings.
The practice which apprentices, clerks,
and others have of spending their earnings
as fast as tbey accumulate is one great reas
on why so many never attain a position above
mediocrity in life. A person who receives
but a small compensation for services will,
with a little care over his exchequer and
system of regularity in his expenditures find
that at the end of the year he is prepared to
encounter any emergency or mishap. But,
as a general thing, they manage to get rid of
their earnings quite as quick as their due,
thus leaving them wholly unprepared for
emergencies by sicknes or otherwise. A
system of curtailing unnecessary expense,
adopted by our younger folks would bring
around the most happy and gratifying results,
and be the means of raising to eminence and
standing in society many who now have con
tracted the habit of parting with their earn
ings so readily and foolishly; for the habit
keeping continually in debt begets inaitter
ence and disipation. a lack of self-respect, and
an utter disregard for futuare prospects.
The real cause for a groat deal of crime may
be traced to the habit of a foolish expendi
ture of money in earlier days. Albany
