A FIGHT ON THE BORDER.
"It wan iu Tj," tMiid the f rontierema 1,
!mt I first crossed the plains. A minir g
x)!ii was in progress at a place that I will
all San IV'lro. It was about '200 mil-a
.'nmi Denvt-r ail not a railroad near it.
So I went down hy stage. I worked a
while at niii:i:;, i;:it 1 didn't make a
strike, so I drifted down to a small to n
then known as Cow Gap, but dignified now
by a longer name. I spent mr of my
money there, and one day I took it into ciy
head to stsrt out oa u tramp. I bead "J

on some kiu 1 of a wagon road I didn't
oinr.e to any ranch. I had some baccn,
-iit. nuiti lies, five pounds of flour aud a
ln,- -n Iv.re potatoes with me, so I hal no

t h' idea of camping out, as I hail no
ii:i;ket, b.U had about resigned myself to
It when I saw the smoke of a ranch.
''ViiLii I reached the house I was at
a. ked i iy tivo enormous dogs, lmt I beat
;hein o;T and shouted until a woman ap
peared. Mie seemed surprised and some-
what annoyed to see ut; but when I offered
to pay fur my board she asked me into the
house, where a una was sitting by a hi ge
lire. It seemed that he was simply a neigh
bor. The master of the house was aw iy,
the woman sum. The neighbor was j i
keeping her company during his aWnee.
'ihe neighbor was very sociable, but he
set ineil a n ine uneasy and wanted to f nd
iul :il':.t me. I had nothing to cone al,

struck 1. The woman ditl not seem .in
easy at los absence. She and I Lad Iven
c!iatt;i:g a!. not many thiugs. r-'he had jast
shown me where I could sleep and I was
pr.pailiig to turn iu when 1 heard a horse's
hoofs rifi-fing on tlie frosty road. It struck
uie that the animal was being ridden for
all it was worth, and I wondered whet her
any accident had befallen my hostess' hna
haud and if the rider had come laden with
had news. The horse was reined up cho rt
at the ga:- 1. aditig to the house. I peered
out through t be window. A mediumsied
man with a handsome liciml was rapidly
removing the saddle and bridle. Thesi he
tossed Inside the gate, and then gave the
horse a smart cut with Lis '"quirt" or
whip. The animal a fine Kentucky bred
black wheeled and galloped o.T at a tre
mendous pace. The man listened until the
hoof beats died away in the distance and
then entered the house. I beard him talk
ing with his wife, for I did not doubt that
the newcomer was the owner of therarch.
I wondered why he had ridden sofurioi:sly
and then turned Lis splendid horse adrift,
for the night was chilly and the horse very
warm. Presently footsteps approached my
door anil I heard my hostess' voice.
" 'My husband wants to speak with you
at once,' she said. 'Will you please m ike
haste?' Wondering more than ever at t his
request, I hastily resumed such of my
clothes as I had thrown aside and joiaed
the couple in the living room. The man
was eating some supper that fdie had pre
pared, lie seemed hurried, but perfectly
cool. She looked worried.
'".orry to disturb you, stranger," he
said, looking up as I entered the rom.
'My wife tells me that you asked for shel
ter and she has given it to you. I'm glad
t.i meet you. but it's unfortunate that you
happened here to-night. From the look of
you I don't think you'd lie tray the uan
whose urub you have eaten, but I cun't
afford to take chances. Fm Tom King-.'
"While he was speaking a dozen conject
ures Potted across my mind. Did he mean
to kill me:- I wondered, and as he deck. red
his determination to risk nothing I in vol
untarily felt for my revolver. As h Untune
that of a noted desperado left his lips,
however, I gazed into the muzzle of a (Jolt

knee. It is scarcely necessary to say that

when a man got 'the drop' on me. Ob
serving this he lowered his weapon.
" 'Don't take offense, young man." he
said. 'Don't fool with your gun either.
Lay it on the table.'
"'You are recently from the cast, are
ou not?' he asked. I answered in the af
firmative. " 'Ah,' he said, reflectively, 'I wai in
Wall street lifteeu years ago.'
"Something in his appearance, I knew
not what, made me look closely at him.
'So your name low is Tom King,' re
marked. 'Did you ever meet my fai her,
lie started from his cuair. 'Ion i on t
mean to say that you are little ed
Greener? I see the likeness now, though.
Well, your father did me mauy a ,.jood
turn. I'm more sorry than ever that you
t-hould have come here at this time. The
sheriff and a large jxsse are after me, aud
I guess there'll le a fight.'
"The ranchman was an old friend of my
father's. He used to visit my family very
frequently when I was a youngster in
knee breeches. lie wore no beard iu those
days. He had often given me tips, at.d he
w;is, I knew, theu a most extravagant
man. I dimly remembered that he had
held a prominent position in 'the street'
and that he suddenly ceased coming to our
house. I remembered also that my fathet
had spoken regretfully of his fall, and that
tbe commercial world had been astounded
at the magnitude of the series of robleries
t hat he had committed. I aiso knew that
he had been arrested and 'jumped' his- bail
I think with the consent of his sureties.
He watched me for a momeut while I pon
dered on theae things. Then he spoke
" 'Don't breathe my name to any 1 ving
soul, Fred,' he said. 'It was supposed that
I was drowned on board the Merry uon
arch, bound for Buenos Ayres. Never cor
rect that impression. Now for the cents
of the present. If the sheriff happens to

prove something against me. Now I don't
want you to get into trouble, but as you

During our conversation Mrs. Kin had
lieen 'clearing the decks for action,' as a
sailor would put it. She had brought half
a dozen rifles, a shotgun and two Colt's re
volvers into the room. Boxes of c'rtridtres
already lay close at hand, and thick shut
ters, evidently constructed for the purpose,
were iasrenea on the windows. Mr re
volver still lay on the table. King trans
ferred it to his pocket. 'If I am killed tell
your story, omitting any reference to our
former acquaintance,' ho said. 'This will
confirm it, and so will Mary here. Won't
"A tear trickled down his wife's cheek.
'Don't talk so, Tom,' she said. 'Bat of
course if anything should happen I'll see
that this friend of yours is not arrested.'
"Tier people live in Kansas; she is pro
vided for all right if 1 die, said King, as
his wife left the room. 'Hello, here they
lne sound of horses' hoofs was dis
tinctly audible. The honse was protected
in the rear by a bluff too precipitous to
ciimo. une of the windows, at which
b.ing took Lis station, commanded the
road and all approaches. The night was
moonlight. The thud of hoofs came very
near and then ceased. I watched the road
from a loophole in one of the shutters.
t-oon a white flag appeared from liehind
t he bluff. It was followed by the mau who
carried it. lie halted at the gate for a mo
ment, and ba.led the house. Tbe doirs
sprang savagely at him, but seemingly
recognized an acquaintance, for when he
spoke to them the creatures licked his

"Answer him, Mary,' said King. Mrs.
King opened the door.
"loin's not at. home. Mr. Thornton,'
she s-.il. 'It's so late that I can't ask
you i'i.' (
' 'The sheri J is here, Mrs. King; he
knows that Tom is al home. I came along
so as to prevent trouble, if I could. Now,

and be means to take him if he has to burn
down the house. Don't let him make trou

"'Shut the door, Mary,' said King; a
half smile was on hU face. His wife sighed.
" "It's no use, Mr. Thornton; you must
tell the sheriff that Toms not at home and
that 1 can't open the house at this time of
night.' she said. Thornton shook his head
Sillily aud retraced hs steps.
Five minutes elapsed. They seemed an
age to me, but King lighted a cigar and
smoked it as placidly as if he were back in
New York, waiting to take his wire to the
theatre. Then a dozen men appeared from
behind the bluff and started for the gate.
King swung his Winchester to his shoul
der, flung open the door and hailed them,
'Go back or throw up your hands!'
"The barrels of a dozen rifles gleamed in
the moonlight as they were focused on the
door, but King had shut it almost as he
"The sheriff aud his men slowly retreat
ed. Neither side seemed desirous of begin
ning an attempt at bloodshed. As they
reached tbe shadow of the bluff the posse
halted, and the sheriff stepped forward and
formally culled upon King to surrender.
King took no notice of the command.
Then the sheriff said something to hU fol
lowers, and they started on a run for the
gate. King raised his rifle again, took
steady aim through the hole in the shutter
of his window and fired.
"The sheriff dropped. The others came
on. King ured again. Another man fell,
clutching at the ground and swearing
horrfWy as he rolled over in agony. Then
hU companions halted.
" Drop!' called King, and I crouched be
low the level of the window. King and
his wife were both on their knees out of
danger. A I stooped there was a sharp
volley. Bullets struck the walls, which
were impenetrable, aud two holes in the
shutter of King's window showed that the
marksmeu had selected the right target.
King had risen to his feet and fired three
times, wounding two more men. Another
volley rang out. He was iu the act of
pulling the trigger. Three balls pene
trated the shutter and one wounded him
in the shoulder.
Mrs. King turned pale, but she said
nothing anil brought ymie warm water
from the kitchen, with which she stood
ready to bathe his wound. He had no time
to stop for that. The sheriff's men were
aimost withiu such an angle of the door as
would render it impossible to aim at them
from the loopholes. King's rifle cracked
again; it was answered by another volley
from oubside, and he reeled back, wounded
in the neck and thigh. He fainted from
the pain, and I, too, fainted from the nerv
ous strain, I suppose; I was only a young
ster then, you know.
""hen I retrained consciousness thu
sheriff was inside the house. He had been
only slightly wounded. After King fell
Ins wife talked with the
and admitted them on the sheriff's promise
buiu. uer nusojuia s lite should be protect
ed, it wouia nave been madness to bar
them out, as they told her plainly that
they would break tn at any cost, even if
they risked her life.
"Two of the meu wounded by King were
very badly hurt. A doctor had come uo
from Cow Gap with the sheriff, anticipat
ing hlooaslieU. lor King had often quietly
uui iorciuiy ueciareu uis niteution ot re
sisting to the death any attempt that might
be made to arrest him. The doctor had
remained with King's friend. Thornton,
behind the bluffs while the fight was in
progress. He attended to all tbe wounded.
King was painfully but not mortally hurt.
Une of the others, however, was in a very
dangerous condition. Tbe whole party
camped for the night at the ranch. I was
placed under arrest on suspicion of being
an accomplice of the horse t hief who bad
been my father's friend,
"The next day we went down to Cow
Gap, where I was released on proving tbe
truth of my story, but I was enjoined from
leaving town, as they wanted me for a wit
ness at King's trial, which would take
place as soon as bis condition permitted
A week later he was brought down and
locked up in the wooden shanty that they
called i. jail. He broke out oue night and
made' good bis escape, much to the disgust
of his jailers, who supposed that weakness
would effectually debar him from any at
tempt f that kind. A hunt was instituted
by the slieriff, who had quite got over his
wound, but King had covered his track as
skillfully as when he fled from New York,
and the search was completely fruitless,
flis wife vanished at the same time, and an
attempt was made to track her, but she
lid not go to her parents' home, and the
authorities never solved the mystery of her
disappearance. " Detroit News,
