ing out a sentence at the Pratt mines
by stating that he was about to make
a full confession of the entire tacts of
the stealing. '

money and during the trial at which

A HORRID DEM).
A Eamily Massacred For a fall.
Denison, Tex., Aug. 5. Two trap
pers passed down Red river last nicht
from a trapping expedition and they
imparted a honble story.
About July is the entire party, con
sisting of a man, wife and two little
children and two other men left the
mouth of Cacke creek and started
down Deep creek, a confluence of
Ped river, for the purpose of boating
down to Fulton, Ark., to dispose of
their furr, The party traveled
IN TWO FLATllOATS,
the man and family in one and the
two men in the other After being on
river two days one of the boats sprung
a leak, which necessitated stopping
for repairs, and it was accordingly
run ashore and the two trappers spent
nearly a day and a half reparing it ere
it was able to continue the journey.
The other boat proceeded down the
river and nothing more was seen of it
or its occupants for three daysl when
the first boat passed them and anch
ored below. The next morning they
awaited several hours for their friends
and one of them started up the river
to see a horrible sight. When he ar
rived he was horrified to find the entire
party dead and the buzzards were
making their morning rr.eil off of the
Abaft lay the father with a bullet
hole through his head, with his arms
hanging over ihe edge of the open
boat. The woman was lying out on
the sand bar, fifty feet away, with a
great gaping wound through her body
the work of a deadly Winchester.
The body of one of the little ones hadf
almost been devoured by the vultures,,
but the cause of its death was plainly
visible, for the under jaw was broken
and shattered, and the head was only
hanging to the body by the tendons
tendons aud two muscles of the neck.
The neck was broken by a bullet.
The body of the other child was found
near where the man had made hi
camp fire, and the vultures had picked
out its eyes and already a swarm of
flies had congregated. Near by was,
THE CAUSE OF THE MASSACRE.
A yearling calf partly skinned told
the story. The man had killed the
calf for the ostensible purpose of re
plenishing his larder. No doubt the
act was witnessed by some one who
roported the facts and a volley from,
the Winchesters of the ever present
linemen, who ride along the river to
release bogged cattle, told the story.
