I am really too weary to answer ques

"I have no desire to obtrudo myself,"
replied tho reporter; "and my questions

Mrs. James evinced a doslre to avoid

Into which sho has been brought by the

During the last snow storm Jesso
and a companion entered a cer

was Immediately recognlzsd by the lady
of the houso, who had inet both Frank
and Jesso at a bouse of a mutual friend
in some other state, whero sho was at

stances .wero under whlfeh they became
acquainted tho lady positively declines to
tell, nor will sho allow her namo to bo
used In this connection. Jesse greeted
her With a very pleasant smtlo and po
litely requested a hot lemonade for
his friend and himself, saying he had
passed a miserable night which
he had almost despaired of surviving.
Tho lady, who was alone In the store,
ushered them Into a room separated from
tho store with a curtain and Intended for
an Ice cream parlor, and secretly armed
herself with two pocket pistols. ' Jesso
looked about the parlor and enquired if
she intended to koep'lce cream during
tho summer, to which she replied in the
affirmative. Requesting that , a
strong allowance of nutmeg be
added to the lemonade, the lady
started for tbo door to look about for a
boy to procure them tor her from a store
near by, seeing which, tho outlaw laugh
ingly told her to go for them herself, that
ho would take nothing lu hjr nb -rnco,'
and that she might be cat1 lent lir. Would
charge full price for anything ho might
dispose of to a tjustomer during her ab.
sence. Bti went for tho nutmegs,
fZa returning, Jesse asked her It
she noticed anything was gone.
She replied that no such a thought
had entered her mind, and prepared tho
lemonade. Jesso ata his companion
then purchased some oranges, and sat in
tho store ior nan an nour, conversing
together about an intended trip to Kansas
