This is a story of the two boldest high
waymen ever known in Arizona.
They hailed from Boston and went to
Tucson !n the spring of 1S79. They were
named I fen Elkins and Gcorgb Wilbur,
and the men and their exploits are still
well remembered by tho old settlers of the
southwest. They encaged themselves as
workers about th"e livery stables In Tuc
son, where the teams that drew the coach
es from the mines across the alkali deserts
to Ixjs Angeles, In southern California,
rested and were replaced by. fresh teams
and drivers. The two men afterward
said they went to work there to learn
about horses and to especially know tho
habits and dispositions of stage drivers.
They height two very fine horses for
saddlo use, and while pretending to be
looking about the country for other horses
for their stablo they were really learning
the lay of tho country.
In tho fall of 1879 highway robberies be
gan to occur along the lines of the stages
from Tombstone to Yuma and El Paso.
They were always done by two men who
wore white masks. The mode of attack
was varied. They stopped the stage to
California three times near Florence, and
then tho next week tho El Paso stage was
robbed 250 miles away in another direc
tion. Tho driver was killed in two in
stances, and another time a miner from
Tombstone who was slow in getting out
of tho coach with his bags of gold dust
was shot dead. TJno attack was in tho
night and others at different times in day
light. Once one of the robbers took pas
sago on the stago at some little Mexican
pueblo near Maricopa. He was, of course,
well disguised, and said he was on his way
to Los Angeles. At a certain spot on tho
way he drew two pistols and compelled the
passengers who were lolling back on tho
cushioned scats inside- the coach to sud
denly rouse from their sleepiness with tho
cold muzzlelof a revolver pressed against
their respective faces.
Then in a few words in an undertone,

from inside tho coach and helped in tho
coercion of tho unwilling johu by sending
a few Xo. 44 bulla 9 whizzing dangerously
near his head. Tho money under the
driver's box was thrown off in a second,
the driver was ordered to go on as fast as
possible, and tho stage went creaking

toward Fort Yuma, some 200 miles

were several others of smaller sums. There
seemed to be no clew to the men.
The government officers finally suspect
ed that Elkins and Wilbur were the high
waymen, so one night the marshal and
his deputies made a descent upon the
adobe hut that tho robbers used as a home
on tho extreme outskirts of Tucson, El
kins or Wilbur must have seen the officers
approaching their habitation in the moon
light, for no sooner had the men cautious
ly dismounted from their horses than tho
door flew open and the two robbers came
out Quicker than thought the marshal
was knocked down unconscious by an aw
ful blow on his head with the butt of a
revolver, and three of his deputies were
shot Two of them were killed instantly.
A half dozen shots went toward the rob
bers. In less time than it takes to tell it
Elkins and Wilbur had run to the corral
at the back of their adobe, and, eneh hav
ing thrown a bridle across a horse, they
were off at a terrific speed. A heavy wind
storm came up the next day, and It was
absolute!- impossible to trail the bandit
jn the shifting sands.
Dan Elkins is remembered as the orig
inal lone bandit of the southwest because,
single handed and alone, he once held np
a stage load of eight passengers besides
the driver, when all were armed. Judge
Bennett now of San Gabriel. CaL, was one
of the passengers that day, and he recently
told a St Louis Globe-Democrat corre
spondent how the robber worked his des
perate game, -
"We on the Inside of the coach bad just
been talking," aaSd the jndge, "of therob
beries that Elkins and his partner, 'Wilbnr,
had made in the territory, and the shame
It was that an organized effort was not
made to go and keep after the villains un
til they were killed, even if it took a year,
when we heard a rifle crack and a man
about to the driver. 'Come, now, stop those
horses, or you'll drop dead I'
"Wo were traveling through a rocky re
gion along the foothills, and each of us
knew Instantly that wo. were in for a hold
up then and thcro. Every man wondered
what his neighbor would do with his pis
toL " 'IU be blanked!' said a big man from
Texas, 'if 111 stand this infernal non
sense,' as he snatched his big shooting
iron from the scat at his side.
"The driver put on tho brakes and the
stage was stopped at once, when we heard
a voico outside saying:
" Xow, you fellers on the inside, get
out on this side. Tho first man who gets
out on tho other side will drop dead as a
smelt. Don't bo lazy. Now all of you
throw down your shooters as yoa fllo out
of the coach, for there's a lot of rifle shots
that's got their eyes on you and are hiding
in these bcre rocks to lay you out cold dead
if yon don't mind what I'm telling youl'
" 'Throw np your hands, gents,' said
the masked robber when we were on tho
ground and our pistols lay thcro in a pile
by the side of the coach wheels.
" 'Xow, get In line thcro quick and
face this way. Keep your hands above
your heads. Don't move. Keep your
mouths shut, or you'll know how quick a
man can go plumb to belli'
"We got In lino facing our commander,
in a moment, and nono of us could extend
his hands quite high enough.
" 'Now, yon young fellow with tho mon
key whiskers,' said tho highwayman, 'you
just shell out there where you stand.
Turn your pockets inside out so me and
my partis over in the rocks can boo that
you'ro dealing fair. That's right. Now,
whilo me and my pards keep you in gun
range, you search that next man and turn
his pockets out Keep your hands up high,
gentsj and save trouble. Don't speak.
"In a few minutes, that seemed liko
ages of an awful silence, each man was
searched, and wo all stood thero in a row
with our pockets turned out and flapping
in tho morning breeze, our hands a foot
above our heads and a small pilo of wal
lets, watches, litUo pocket k-ather and
cloth bags of coin lay nt tho feet of tho
young man of our party who had been
compelled to searoh his companions.
" 'Now, you driver, throw your money

wo had been searched. 'There, that's

The morals of French students are much

writes William E. Curtis in tho Chicago
Kccord. It is a dangerous thing for a for
eigner who is accustomed to the conven
tional restraints of American society to at-
tend tho University of Paris until ha haa
reached the ago of discretion. Tho temp
tations arc greater than in any other city,
and no socuil pleasures aro offered him
except those which tho students provide
for themselves. They aro cot usually such
as American mothers would approvo.
The griscttc seems to bo a part of tho
university system, as essential as the libra
ry or the laboratory, and sho is a very In
teresting person. Slio generally comes
from tho shopkecping class of Parisians
and the families of artisans, end she un
derstands that tho ntbichmcnts sho may
form will last only during the six semes
ters, or three years, which constitute tho
university course. When her loverrccclvce
his diploma or his bachelor's degree, their
relations are dissolved forever unless he
chooses to make her a rare exception and
lntroduco her from tho Latin quarter Into
new scenes and surroundings. Thus tho
griscttcs aro passed down from class to
class until they get old and lose their at
tractions. Then they becomo concierges,
or janitrcsses, or take up dressmaking for
the younger generatiou that has followed
them into student lifo. Perhaps they may
set up wineshops ortako in washing or
marry laboring men.
At tho Bal Bullior one night a pretty
girl related to mo thnt sho left tho Latin
quarter for a year after tbo departure of a
certain American student from Paris and
took a place ho obtained for her in a shop.
Tho hours were short tho wages were
good, the labor was light nnd her em
ployers wcro very kind to her, but' they
were not congenial or sympathetic, and
she despised people whoso aspirations wcro
sordid and who were always talking about
money and trade. Therefore as soon as
her time was up sho "returned to tho uni
versity," as she put it Sho would havo
gone distracted if sho had been compelled
to rcniutn cwny another year. She would
rather livo in a garret in tho Latin quar
ter, where tho associations wcro refined
and intellectual, she said, than in a palace
on tho other side of the river.
Such girls are sincere. They aro willing
to share the poverty nnd privations of the
students as well as their prosperity and
take their breakfasts without murmuring
at the fountain of St Sulpice, as the prov
erb goes, which furnishes nothing but
water, when their pereonal attractions
might purchase them a life of luxury in
other sections of the city.
"Trilby" is a true story, a composite of
the experience of innny poor girls of whom
sho is an acc urato typo. They know no
better life than they are living. Then?
moral envelopment is limited, and there
fore their untaught souls feel no conscious
ness of shr.me. The grisct tcs aro not al
ways wicked or always gay. Their moral
perceptions arc not as acute as those of
some people, but they arc true to their own
standards of honor nnd propriety. They
have troubles, like ot her women. Many of
