A PLOT FOR A STORY.

"Plots for Htoiies hav nut all been
used, as some people aiwert," remarked
W. A. Jennings, of Wyoniing. to a Phila
delphia Press reporter. "A friend of
mine," be continued, "who lives out in
the cattle country of the Big Horn basin,
was a witness in 18M to one of the most
remarkable weddings of which I ever
heard. At that time a few settlers had
gathered in and formed the nucleus of
what is now a prosperous farming region,
but the away of the cowboy vraa undis
puted. The tirst wedding in that section
on Owl Creek was that of Big Charlie
and Meettitse Nance, a native sage
brush belle. The bride and groom came
9e mity-fi ve mileu on horseback to the
'quire's, and in exactly the same fashion.
When within a few miles of the squire's
home they met tbat otticial, surrounded
by half a dozen Oowboya. Then the bride
got restive and nervous, declaring that
she wouldn't marry any man on earth.
But the jude, the eowboy and the
groom were equal t. the occasion. At a
short distance stood a oornl.
"Take her over ti 1mm msJ, '..-.. mat
put her in," i bis honor.
"As Meetutse Natn-e heard this order
she made a w ild break for the hills, but
In r il ivs of freedKn v mn over. She was
quicl.ly run down am! SMSid a volley of
femitiiiii sage brush eloquence, the de
lighted U)s started on a lope for the
corral. Reaching this, Nance leaped
from her bronco and started like a
scared deer for some adjacent brush,
but it was no go. However, she fought
.igorously. and his honor ordered:
Hobble her. bojS.1 The boys wei in
rcsUMes. A pair of rawhide hobbles
were stripped from a cayuse's neck, and
their twist adjusted about the sturdy
ankles of the struggling bride. She was
taken into the corral, and his honor,
mounting the fence, bade the groom
lake his place by her side and catch on
to her hand. This done, his honor as
Mimed the look of dignified importance
called for by the occasion, and said:
" "Big Charlie and Meetutae Nance,
you come into this ton al single. I now
pronounce you a couple. Big Charlie,
uuhohble vour wife.'
But this Big Charlie found it difficult
to do, and it was not until one of the
cowboys had gently cast his lariat over
the newly made wife that the husband
was able to turn the lady loose. Then
t lie justice called his loys together, and
saying "come on, boys, we hain't got no
I'usincss bere now,' led them awav. One
of the boys looked back, and the happy
couple were busy unpacking their camp
