stumbled over a cowboy s outfit, con
sisting of a saddle, bridle, spurs.
blankuts and two revolvers. Not far
from these lay a cartridge belt half
filled with .is calibre shells.
McMlllen collected the articles and
took them to his hous, and on the
ne.t day a vigorous search was insti
tuted in the hope of making other and
probably moro startlicg discoveries
but fortunately, or unfortunutoly, no
dead bodies or horses were found.
McMillcn says all tho articles picked
up aro comparatively now, the saddle.
especially, having bee- used but little.
However, it wns badly weatlicrstaincd,
showing that tho"flnd" had lain where
it was found a long time
McMillan, as well as his neighbors,
have no idea how the articles camo

they may be the link in u story of n
bloody tragedy, or mayhap, the mem
bers of thu Dalton banditti may know
