Walter Sample goet to the peni
tentiary after wandering about in
different climes since a lad in knee
breeches, and having experieneei
which makea up a truly variegated
career for one of hit age. Over half
of his life hat been spent in other
countries. But be returned home to
commit tbe crimes which have
landed him behind prison walls for a
term not to exceed 40 years. .
1 naa only been home from cuds
a few wtcks when I assisted in the
jobs for which I go to prison alone,
saia young sample in talking witn a
newspaper representative at tbe lati.
When l was 10 years old ana while
oar family was living at Des Moines,
l took a notion that it would be a
rather romantic stroke to ran away
from home and see the country. And I
aid so.- My parents never knew
rhat oicame of me until I bobbed
up serenely about six years after
ward. Unring that time 1 traveled all
around Europe and Africa. I went
straight to New York and laid
around the hartjor tor a few days
and finally struck a job as cabin boy
on the steamer North America, on
which I sailed to Liverpool. Then 1
went to France and in a short time
returned to England, wbere after tour
months bumming I picked up with
a mineralogist wbo offered me
chance to go to Africa with him.
And of course 1 went. W e traveled
through that country for nearly a
year and a half. I got plenty. We
came back to London, where I tar
ried for a while, and then crossed
over to California, where I learned
the baker's trade. Then I came
home, the folks having moved to
Sioux Falls, S. D. I was 16 then.
Enlists la taa Navy.
"Home was too tame and after a
few months I struck out for Califor
nia, where at Mare's Island I enlisted
as an apprentice in the navy, going
with tbe steimer Marion, which put
in most of its time patrolling the
Behriog sea daring tbe sealing con
troversy. We also went up into
Siberia and down to the Sandwich
Islands, here we remained two
months. Then we went to Yoko
hama and np the Yanjtf t Kiang in
Chinaand visited the several cities in
the East Indies and the Pnilippine
Islands. When I had put in about
four years on the Marion I was dis
charged while we were anchored at
Yokohama. Christmas day of 1894 1
took passage on the City of Pekin for
America. I came straight home. I
bad more sense and experience then,
yet I was not satisfied. So . last
August 50 young fellows, of whom 1
was one, organized at Chicago to go
down and battle for the Cubans, and
we went, arriving at our destination
after no little hardship. We joined
the insurgent ranks and took part in
several battles. In one of them
last January four of our crowd were
killed and three wounded.
"To make a long story short, two
of our, boys Frank Houser and Fred
Houston, both from Michigan, were
taken prisoners by the Spauish. And
it was td intercede for them that I
came . home. I iirst went to
Washington and laid the case before
Lieutenant Perry, a friend of mine,
who pro.mised to have the matter at
tended to by the proper authorities.
My record was clear so far as crime
is concerned when I reached borne.
Plaaa tLa Holdups.
"In Chicago I met a fellow I'll
not tell vou bis name wbo came
down here with me. He suggested
that we do some lobs, promising me
that he would stand by me to the
last. So at Cash's he told me to lead
the way ; he agreed to follow and
gather the money which I proposed
making tbe people shell up. When
I got inside he backed down. Get
ting out of that case safely gave me
courage. He made all kinds of excuses
and "promised faithfully to do the
right thing the next time. At Don
aldson's he plajed thesamegame;
and 1 was caught.
