was tho uhUky. The two gallon demijohn

Lmte the Ku-k saddle was empty. I led him
back to the Hawkins' Bar store with a few
I.taloes iu my hands that I liad gathered up,

of the one 1 had lost, there nos
sent a man w ho would not let that horse get

catastrophe to a "yellow Jjacket" that stung
the animal on the flank. I did not see the

somehow it kicks dignity. It looked to me a

Now, 1 don't pietend to say that Mark
uiatiufactuieil this story for the occasion; on
tin? other hand, 1 mut take it us au actual
occurrence. haiemtig in Nevada just about
as descijiied, for has not Mark seriously in
formal usth.it 'I have scan-elyexHggerateil
n detail of this curious and absurd adventure.
It occurred almost exactly as I hnve ttatd
Mark's citizenship in Keokuk, had he not
been so positive iu his demands that we
should lelieve even tho details of his snow
storm frtory, would have caused a suspicion
to take iws.sev.iou of my mind long siucethat
his Hory was really founded on n similar oc
currence, not so hairbreadth in its details or
tragic iu its itox-dbilities, which occurreil at
Foit Madison, in this comity, away back in
the '40s. (Jeorge C Dixon was au able law
yer of that day, and, fu connection with K.
S. Rlennerhassett. a notisl criminal lawyer
of St Ioiiis, said to have U-en relatel to tho
liisinnau hlcnneihassett whose name at
tached to the tivuoimble designs of Aarou
Burr, were employetl for the ettlera in fifty
or more ejectment -uits growing out of the
old half breed litigation. '1 hey were ruesti

thee suits were pending. Only about a half
square away Jo SchmeUe kept a restaurant
and pigeonhole table Between the hotel
and this restaurant was an 0eu space which
was Used only for ciicus aud menagerie pur
iosest and there was always ou the ground a
regulrti circus ring or pathway, for the ele
phant and horses tramped into the earth.
It was a very dark night when
Bleuuerhas-ett, Dixon ami a citizen
named Uhailey Hyde went to Jo.s to play
a few games of pigeonhole. Amusements
iu those days were rare in little western
town, and time hung heavily, esjiecially on
the hands of stranger, aftr the days busi
ness was over IVtained at first by a rain,
they Itecame much interested in tho game,
ami It was after midnight when they con
cluded to rt turn to tho hoteL Dixon, al
though lame, one leg tieing shorter than the
other, was au excellent walker, aud he took
the lead, his companion following without
questioning whele he led. It seemed to them
a long way to tho hotel, but noUnly mur
mured, and they marched on, tramp, tramp,
tramp, in the thick darkness. The gray dawn
of the morning legan to streak tho east, the
cock bad crowed for day, and this brought the
landloid, W. (.'. Stripe, now an old c:tizeuof
Keokuk, fiom his Usl, he lelng an early
user, and withal a jolly joker even
to this day. W.iILing out into the morning
air, be espied the three tired wanderers
trudging wearily around the circus ring,
Dixon still m advance, his short leg in the in
ner sidoof the ling, lohbingup und down as
hestuidily led his companions. Stripe saw
his guest, called to liwu with a uiornmg sa
lute and a suspicious tiu;kle in his eye, aud
tho ina'ter was mmhi rxplainsl. They had
lieen innnning around that circus ring all
night. Mure they left the pigeonhole table,
to get half a square to theMadison house,
ami were not theie jet, though all the time
they thought they wtreou the way. I have

and alisurd advetitun. It occurreil almost
