Tale of a Precipice Something About
Copyright by Edgar W. Nye.
There has been recently placed in my
hands for review a rectangnlar, liver
colored brochure, waned for the summer
trade, which is a resume of the publio
services of tho Younger brothers, who,
as it will be remembered, were engaged
for some years in soliciting donations of
funds and goods for the use of persons
in need, anil who reside, when at home,
mostly in Clay and Jackson counties,
The book is handsomely gotten up,
though sold at twenty-five cents per
volume, and breathes a spirit of kindli
ness and lmmanity which should teach
as all a valuable lesson. I have read the
ROBBING INNOCENT" PASSENGERS.
entire book carefully because I did not
desire to jnd.;e it unfairly. My atten
tion was especially called to it because
I had heard so much of the devout spirit
manifested especially by Coleman Young
er, loth before and since his incarcera
tion. It is only fair that the world should
know the truth about both the Younpers
and the Jameses, and that while they
were at times unconventional and almost
rude they were really at heart refined
and devout. Coleman Younger or Cole,
as he was called by his publishers, who
of course naturally feel most intimate
with him, having no doubt often ex
changed ideas with him as to methods
of working that would be profitable
without involving too much risk or
brain fag, was the son of Henry Wash
ington Younger, a native of Kentucky,
who afterward moved to Jackson county,
Mo. Mr. Younger, Sr., never did much,
aside from becoming the father of the
Younger brothers, that would serve to
pass his name down in history. Having
successfully done this ho died suddenly
by rpqnest of many citizens. The elder
Younger, if such a term be proper,
began to wield a lasting influence
over his sons, however, before his
death; for while Cole was at school he
was quite rude, and sometimes fatally
injured his playmates in thoughtless
glee, and as a result of pure animal spir
ite which he carried almost constantly
concealed about his person. As a result
of this the teacher threatened to whip
Coleman. The elder Younger then in
formed the little pallid tutor that if
he did so he, the elder Younger, would
whip the little pale teacher. Many boys
witn parents use tuat nave grown up,
gone into society, and at last put on the
beautiful tennis suits worn so extensively
at bing bmg. Later on, growing heated
over a discussion with the teacher re
garding the question whether "pollena"
was or was not the correct orthography
of the style of overskirt then being largely
worn in Clay county, the Younger broth
ers inserted the tutor in the river, head
first, through a hole in the ice, and left
him there in a most compromising posi
tion. This was the origin of the expres
sion "getting a man in a hole" which
has since come into popular favor, having
been used by Undertaker Merritt this
summer when Dr. McGonigal brought
him the body of Annie Goodwin at 8 a.
m. in his pig. and asked him to kindly
bury it for him.
The tutor was pulled out by spectators
finally, and he said then to those about
him that if the Younger boys didn't do
"different" they would come to a bad
end, possibly several of such.
Cole Younger has become such an earn
est, consistent Christian since his incar
ceration in the penitentiary that his past
ought not to 1 raked up here, except it
be, perhaps, to show that he has had a
great deal to overcome in trying to lead
a Christian life in a penitentiary, where
there are so many temptations to be friv
olous anu gay.
Some years ago there was a robbery
on the Rock Island road, about fourteen
miles east of Council Bluffs. Cole
Younger and Jesse James planned to
"throw" the east bound train at this
point. It was in the drowsy dawn of a
beautiful summer Sabbath that these
now kindly and gentle natures pried up
the rails and let tho flying engine plow
into the cut and wreck the train. It was
tho sunrise of that Sabbath morning
when poor RaflVrty, the engineer, with
ashy face and staring eyeballs turned
toward the quiet sky, lay dead beneath
his engine. He lies in an unknown grave
today because he foolishly tried to reverse
his engine and save his train; whereas if
he had been engaged in wrecking it
people would have come for thousands
of miles to see him and hear him tell how
he found salvation and helped himself
The boys now had the train to them
selves. They began to feel in the pockets
of comparative strangers, and get the
time of day from people with whom
they could have had but a slight acquaint
ance. Sometimes a lady who h;ul never
been robbed at all before, and who had
not read the etiquette of the thing, would
thoughtlessly shriek, but before she could
apologize Mr. Younger, who it is said
carried a Bible with him through all his
train robbing career, and always had a
good voice for exhortation, said: "Sit
down, damn yon! Keep still or you'll
go to hell!" These we tho words testi
fied to by those present. Mr. Younger
always road one of tho Psalms just be
fore robbing a train, and one of liia
prayers, it is said, would have sounded
well even-in the house of representatives.
After the Rock Island train robbery
the Youngers and Jameses scattered in
order to avoid detection. Each took a
peach basket full of gold watches, so that
he would know what time it was, and
started off in different directions. Curi
ously enough, four of them came to
gether, viz., Cole, Jim and John Younger
The four outlaws had halted in a thick
grove of trees to rest their horses, swap
watches, and pray, when late in the af
ternoon two deputy sheriffs and a con
stable who were looking for the train
robbers suddenly came upon them. In
an instant Cole Younger took in the sit
uation, and revolvers were drawn and
lflsdjon. .the officersj says the narra
tor, while with terrible threats ana oaths,
indicating that if they did not hold their
hands as high as possible they would,
almost at once, look like the zodiac man
in the front of the almanac, they were
"Where are you going?" asked Cole
man Younger in a rich Union depot
"We are hunting for the Youngers,
who robbed the train on the Rock Island
road," said the deputy, who had once
empaneled a jury, but aside from that
had never mixed np much with carnage.
"You were!" exclaimed Coleman
Younger. "Well, d n you, pray!"
He was almost morbid on the subject
of prayer, Coleman Younger. He did
much harm, I think, by suggesting it at
the most inopportune rimes, and showed
great intolerance that way.
'"What do yon mean?" asked the trem
"I mean you have just ten minutes by
our large and choice assortment of
watches to get ready for the other world,
and I don't want to send any man to the
other world unprepared."
He was always that way. ne did not
want to see a deputy sheriff die in a
crude state. Ten minutes soon passed,
and then the men were blindfolded.
They were not far from the steep bluffs
of the Missouri, some of which were 800
feet high. The three men, with their
e3es bandaged, were taken to a cliff and
Bwungover it so that they caught by
their hands. Below was a perpendicular
"Hold on as long asm can," said the
eccentric robber, "and when you fall
that will be the end of yon."
With that the helpless men were left,
and above the tumultuous beating of
their own hearts they heard the clatter
of retreating hoofs. Yon can dimly im
agine the horror of such a situation.
The cold, glittering stars looked down
upon them, but they saw them not.
With bandaged eyes and sinking hearts
they clung to the rergo of life until their
nerveless fingers one after another re
laxed, and with a deep moan they fell to
the bottom, a distanco of nearly four
As soon as they recovered they went
homo with a feeling toward the Younger
boys which almost amounted to resent
ment. The book is full of interest, and shows
that the James and Younger people re
gard themselves as more sinned agaiust
than sinuing. They always excused
themselves for killing people on . tho
ground that society had not treated them
well. They foolishly kept alive the old
war sentiment, and instead of bnrying
their sectional animosities they allowed
their strong political likes and dislikes
to warp their better judgment. -
John Younger was less dignified than
Coleman. He wjis more apt to be mer
curial, and also impulsive. One night in
a barroom at Dallas he was feeling quite
chipper under the influence of Texas
vintages when he proposed to shoot just
near enough to brush the nose of an old
gentleman who sat around the place.
John made a bet with another man that
he could do so without shooting off the
nose. The bet was accepted, but great
ly to the general regret, a regret which
was also shared by the old man, John
The volume contains a good, full page
picture of Jesse James taken after death.
It is well worth the price of the book,
and has been a source of great comfort
to many people who survive him.
It is doubtful if this country will ever
again produce the same aggregation of
highway robbing talent again. Mr.
Gould, with his active little Western
Union telegraph, did much to cut short
the career of these men. and for this, if
j for nothing else, I feel for one like taking

All this may be true, but it is of little
use, I find, to appeal to the moral nature
of n county. It is a thankless task. Yon
may talk to a county and appeal to its
better nature till you are black in the
face and it will not even feel ashamed
of itself. It is a good deal so with
congress. I have done much to prevent
congress from bringing my gray hairs
with sorrow to the grave, but what has
been the result? Members have gone on
pairing with each other in a brain sap
ping way, while as a body I can truth
fully say that congress never even went
away by itself for a single moment to
consider what I have said.
Returning again to the subject of a
tacit endowment of lawlessness on the
part of communities or parents, I must
say that thoy are the parties who suffer
at last. Willful blindness to the defects
and misdemeanors of a child especially
brings its sorrowful reward to. the
parent at last, while careful and whole
some discipline are sure to pay the pains
taking parent in the end.
I once knew a dark haired lad whom
I will call Henry Escariot. He was a
bright boy, of a little mon than my own
age. His father was sevire with him,
and many a time and oft as I went in
swimming with Henry I have seen
parental welts on him as., wide and
cerulean as the back of a l luefish.
Henry used to steal movable things
from my desk at school an i barter them
to others. He grew to manhood and
stole a horse. He was am sted and tried
and found guilty. Before "ie was sent to
the penitentiary he got hold of a case
knife, however, and with it he dug his
way out. Taking a few whiffs of the
fresh young morning he lit out for home.
The next morning, whild reading the
paper, the old man espiect Henry while
he was yet a great way off, and knew
him. Calling him in he hi d a large and
arrogant gobbler killed for him, and
while Henry ate this tooth some bird the
old man telegraphed the sheriff and
turned him over to the authorities, re
ceiving therefor the reward not only of
a perfectly limpid conscience, but eight
hundred dollars (f80O) in cam.
So I say that parents who do their plai n
though painful duty by their children in
that way are almost sure ol a reward.

"Mr. Gest is up to his eyts in work.
says the blooming champion of that gen
tleman in Sunday's Union. All these
yarns about Mr. (Jest's work In Washing
ton are the very worst samples of hog
wash, and are only retailed now just be
fore election In order that sj mpathy may
be manufactured and votes captured
The attempt is being made to create the
impression that Mr. Gest is so wholly oc
cupied with great exploits that he is hav
ing a very arduous time of it indeed.
One would think he was driven to death
looking after the interests of this section
of the state. If so. in what way does it
manifest itself? Has he done so much
for the district that be is up to bis eyes
in work all the time? At that rate be
must create a vast amount cf unneces
sary iabor for himself . Dickens tells of
a man who felt that he mutt work in
order to accomplibk something in the
world, and so he could be sec n racing up
and down the streets at a gree t rate, with
no destination or object in view, but
simply that he must work. Mr. Gest
must be troubled with the same kind of
an idea. If he is working in secret what
is it for? He is not doing it in public.
Was all this "work" with reference to the
preparation he made for Lis trembling
appearance before the house the other
day on the eight hour law? The time cf
the house was not greatly engrossed by
that effort. Was that the ponderous labor
over which so much midnight oil was
burned? Did Mr. Gest feel himself over
whelmed by the undertaking?
There are those in this woild who, as
soon as they undertake anything, imagine
that the rest of the world stands still in
admiration and applause, when the fact
is, nobody is thinking or carint: anything
about it. These are the m ;n whose
world is within the limits of a talf bushel
measure and yet they are scare ly notice
able in the area. Mr. Gest is but the fly
on the wheel. The world move on with
out his assistance.
The truth is, however, that Mr. Gest
feels his own insignificance at the nation's
capitol. He sees men who have a grasp
on human affairs such aa he knows be will
never possess. He notices around him
those who have force, directness, intel
lectuality, experience, determination and
the powers of speech, and he mist feel as
it being looked at through the rong end
of the telescope. He can sit ard admire
the efforts of others and draw unhappy
comparisons between them and himself.
And when he finds himself goaded to do
something for those who sent h m there,
be must undertake it with reluctance,
knowing what a sorry figure he will be
compelled to cut in its presentation. Ob,
no; Mr. Gest knows he is not up to his
eyes in work in Washington . The field
is too large and be feels himself rattling
around like a pea in a barrel. When his
acquaintances call upon him he cn make
a pretence of being pushed for time and
that he has the world on a shaft and binv
seif the only man at the crank.

Two Moline young ladies are said to
have hired a livery rig yesterday to take
a trip to Black Hawk. Tbey were both
good horsewomen, they said, as the reins
were placed in their hands, and they
bowled along Third avenue for their des
tination. Their knowledge of boiseman-
bip, however, was limited to being able
to steer clear of other vehicles an 1 turns
ing corners moderately well. But taking
care or the horse there was tie rub
When they arrived at Black Ha k they
concluded that the horse needed water.
A pail of water was placed on the
irround under the brute's no-; but
in spite of the most frantic efforts
the animal was unable to reach it
how should the young ladies comprehend
the restraint of the horrid check rein?
They concluded that a horse must be
tipped over, so to speak, in orler to
drink; but bow about the buggy? Past
exploits on a teeter came to their vision,
and they concluded the same principle
would apply to a horse and buggy. With
this in view they lifted the back part of
the vehicle as high as their- strengi h and
low ahoes would admit, and felt dhcmt
ed that the horse's nose did not go down
worth a cent. They were finally belped
out of the dilemma by a man who loosed
the check rein. Dispatch.
