A WILD WEST EPISODE
In the early summer of 1884 I left my na
tive state ami turned my steps toward that
goal of all youthful aspirations, the "'Gold
en West,'' or, to lie more explicit, that part
of the west embraced In the territory of
Dakota. At Man dan, a thriving young
city on the Northern Pacific railroad, 1

with no certainty of bettering myself and
Without the prospect of a position.
Fortune, however, Favored me, and a
temporary vacancy in tin-telegraph depart
ment at Mainlan afforded me employment
until something better should offer itself.
I was fast making myself at home in my
new situation, when one morning I was
Balled into the superintendent's oflice and
Informed that a better position, financially
speaking, was to be had a day's journey
up the road: "but," added the superin
tendent, looking me over critically, "it is
a rough, wild place. Baxter, and we must
have a fellow of nerve."
What young man of twenty-one would
not have jumped at an offer like that when
refusal virtually meant acknowledged cow
ardice? Not , at least, and so eager was I
to be off that I set about packing my traps
at once, and the next train up nc inhered
me among its passengers.
Gazing idly from the window- ns we
whirled along. I noted that, after miles of
trackless, treeless prairie was crossed, the
country changed and grew more broken,
the rolling hills finally merging into pre
cipitous "buttes." cleft by deep Canyons.
We had entered the Bad Lands, ud a
dreary stretch of country it was. As tar
as the eye could see huge masses of sand
stone in fantastic shapes strewed the h wl
Boor of the alkali plain. It seemed to Ik

anything save coyotes and cacti grew up
With that part of the country.
The conductor, a pleasant young chap,
presently sat down beside me for a chat.

"I have been sent to take charge of that
station," I replied.
"You don't say: I heard that the agent
skipped out the other day with a ballet
hole in his hat. Sent yon on to t;i!:t his
place I reckon."
"What hail ,he agent done?" I inquired,
"Wore a stifT hat -he was green in tlie
business, you see. One day a lot of drunken
cowboys was hnntln around lor .: target,
and when he showed Up they filled that
hat plum full of holes. Them fellers just
about run things up here."' he continued
cheerfully. "Well, here's lack to you. My
stop-oiT: So long!" and he left me to my
reflections. I wan in for it now and must
make the best of it, but daring the rest of
that ride I thought of a certain small
Michigan office with regret.
It was far into the night when I arrived
at Mingusville, and standi!.;..' on the plat
form 1 gazed sleepily after the n eed,:.,
train until the glimmering row of lights
was no longer visible; then, feeling that I
had severed the last link with civilization,
I turned and made my way into the dimly

Hotel straight across. Good night."
It was not until the next morning that I
took my bearings. The "'town'' consisted
of four solo ns, one store and B dozen
houses, besides the hotel and depot. I
made this discovery in a hasty glance from
my room window as I went below at the
summons of the breakfast bell. The hotel,
a roughly hoarded structure, was divided
into dormitories where herds of men rolled
themselves in blankets and slept on thfl
floor. The railroad employees fared better,
and a narrow hunk in a. small room was
. Entering the dining room, which would
have seated a regiment, I was nattered
past the loug tables and seated at a table
set for four. I was early, but was soon
joined by the night man. Maxwell, who. '
Subsequently learned, was on all occasions
as briefly to the point as upon our intro
duction. Soon the long tables began to fill up, anil
I forgot breakfast in watching the hurry
big, pushing crowd rough, uncouth men.
the majority of them, but not the dangt r
OUR cutthroats I had pictured. "Will you
have sugar, please?" I gave a start as the
brisk voice broke in upon my musings, nod
(or a full minute did not answer, so dum
founded was I at sight of the apparition
that, unperceived by me, had glided to the
head of the table and was smiling roguish
ly at me over a coffee cup. Even the se
date Maxwell smiled at my evident em
barrassment, but I managed to pull myself
together and to acknowledge the crnietly
spoken "'Mollie Brant, your landlord's
daughter, Mr. Baxter." .She then turned
her attention to the stout, red armed Swed
ish girl who was waiting on the tables.
This afforded me a chance to observe
that Miss Mollie's profile was very regu
lar, her huir, worn in two heavy braids,
dark and wavy, and that her eyes matched
the color of her hair I knew from the
glimpse I had of them as they smiled at
me across the coffee cup.
Although I was not an authority on the
subject of feminine charms, I ventured
to decide that the young lady was very
nice looking and marveled much at her
pretty wayB and correct speech amid such
prroundings.. We were in the midst of
an animated cottveraawun, wncn tne-uoor
opened and a youth in corduroy shooting
jacket lounged into the room, bestowing
on his way to tin fourth seat at our table
a careless nod to Maxwell and a beaming
smile on Miss Mollie.
A few terse vords from Maxwell in
formed me that I was in the presence of
Mr. Shaw, who r -presented a stock buying
firm in Chicago, tnd as I returned his lw
I felt that it would lie a luxury to knock
that man down. Not that he was an ill
looking fellow by any means, for he was
something of a 'ladies' man"' in appear
ance, but 1 felt that we were antagonistic.
I doubt if he g; ve me so much as a pass
ing thought, for 1 e devoted himself to Miss
Brant, who, bent on wholesale conquest,
distributed her iright glances with great
During the month following my arrival
business at the st ition was quiet, the stock
shipping season n it yet having commenced.
A small band of owboys would sometimes
dash up to the st ition, breakneck pace, on
their wiry ponies, and although their broad
sombreros, clank ng spurs and well tilled
cartridge )elts, ornamented with a gun
and perhaps a knife or two, gave them the
appearance of bat dits, they seemed rather
a good natured set,, if a bit lawless.
Now and then a copper lined face,
streaked with or rht paint and surmount
ed by a shock of s raight black hair, would
peer at me through the office window, and
if I gave a start f surprise it seemed to
afford the noble red man a certain amount
of amusement; then, after a prolonged
stare, he would grunt and stalk majestic
ally away. The event of the day, however,
was the arrival of the west bound train at
night. The entire population was on hand
at this time, and no matter hcav belated
the train not a lounger left the platform
until the harrying, panting thing, trailing
its way across tin prairie like some huge,
glistening Serpent, was lost to view.
Meanwhile 1 1 ad Wen making great
strides in Miss ollie's good graces, dis
tancing Shaw, wh was a zealous applicant
for her favor. The coantry around about
had Something ot the pieturesqueness of
the Bad Lands, although not so broken,
and at such times as I was free from office
duties Miss Mollie mounted on her nimble
black pony, and I on her father's gray,
scoured the hills and vales, returning with
appetites that can ;1 the cook to eye us
with scant favor. In an exchange of con
fidences I told her that I was alone in the
world, with none mt distant relatives.
She had no ore but her father, her
mother having died when Mollie was a
child. "I was at school in Helena when
mamma died." si e said, "and came di
rectly here with papa, where we have since
lived." - That explained the situation.
Miss Mollie had been given advantages
Coming in from i longer ride than usual
one evening we f mnd the whole settle
ment in an uproar. Some twenty cosy boys
were reported can ped within two miles of
the place awaitini' daybreak to bring into
the corral SCO bead of cattle. We discussed
the matter at the supper table, and I re
marked that the g -nns cowboy, so far as I
was acquainted with him, did not sustain
his hard rejtutatioi .
"Wait until yon see him drunk," was
Maxwell's rejoindt r.
"That's all swagger mire braggado
cio," said Shaw. " Let them sec that you
ore not afraid of them and they'll leave
yon alone test eno igh. Rascally beggars
though, the most of them."
Maxwell smiled quietly, and turning to
me observed, "Even the cowboy has his
good traits; if he d images a piece of prop
erty while drunk ten to one he will walk
up and pay for it when he gets sober if it
takes his last cent."
"Cu'rous how r.spectful like they air
tew wimtnen." eh med in Brant. "Ain't
never seen one yit too drunk tew forgit his
manners when wirnmen folks was around.
I reelect onct twimt mor'n a year ago. I
reckon two on 'cm got ap a rumpus about
uthin in this very oom, just afore dinner.
One on 'em had the drap on t'other, and
there they stood, like a couple of coyotes,
waitin ler a chance to spring, when my
little Moll. here, walked into the room.
Lord! You should 'a seed 'em drap into
their cbeejs, like they'd been shot. After
dinner they kim over to this table and axed
her pardon, like real gents."
"That goes to prove what I said,"' re
marked Shaw loft-fly. "If I had lieen
around here, Miss Id illie, the fellows should
have been kicked out."
Miss Mollie smiled her sweetest, and I
felt a wild desire to throttle some one, for
be it known she and I had had a little tiff
that evening, and the was driving me to
the verge of deeper ton with her vagaries,
while Shaw appeared to Ik- iii the sixth
heaven and anticipated the seventh.
Shaw's last rema -k was of course taken
for what it was worth, but we were des
tined to remember that evening's conver
sation. In the morning, bright and early, the
fun lagan. The cam, ordered by tele
graph, were waiting in long rows opjiosito
the stock yards, and away off in the dis
tance, just coming over the brow of the
hill, was a widespn ad brown mass that
circled and eddied u arer and nearer until
we could finally make out the wildly toss
ing heads and hear the lowing that was
like the rambling of distant thunder.
Around and around the herd the cowboys
swung their nimble ponies, ever aiming to
Keep the cattle in a -omnact buncfi aid at
' the same time urging them forward. The
sunlight shone on the forest of gleaming
: horns and brightened the clouds of dust in
their wake into go den mist. Now and
then one of the anirmls would break away
from the herd and dash off, closely fol
lowed by a cowboy, 1 isso in hand, and ere
the creature was secured and dragged
buck, panting, to t le herd, an exciting
race was often witnessed.
As they neared tl e corral the cowboys
fell to the rear, and spurring the animals
forward with "quilts" or long lashed
whips they were drh en into a vast pen, V
shaped, the entrance being the mouth of
the V. This in turn opened to auother
large pen, square, an 1 at the further side
of the square were ranged six small pens.
Once secured in the square pen it was no
difficult matter to dr ve the cattle into the
smaller pens and the ace up a chute to the
cars. Right in amon the trampling hoofs
and tossing horns the horses were spurred,
and the cruel, cutting whips were laid on
right and left, drivii g the beasts Into the
small inclosures. wh ;re on high platforms
stood other cowboy? with long handled
prods, which they med effectively when
ever a particularly i nruly beast declined
to go up the chute It was a novel and
exciting scene to mj unwesternized eyes,
and even Shaw admitted that it was "'quite
After the arduous task of loading the
cattle was done the cowboys vaulted into
their saddles and dis ippeared in the direc
tion of the saloons.
'"There'll be the deuce to pay by night,"
announced Maxwell racularly. They kept
clear of the station during the day, but
when 1 went over to the evening train the
place swarmed witli them. They were
rather frisky and ma le a number of jokee
at my expense, but ofered no demonstra
tion, thinking, doubtless, thatji slight boy
oi my years wasn't wortn scaring, miaw
had declined to accompany us that even
ing, and whether it was Miss Mollie's
smiles that held him captive or a sneaking
fear of the boisterous crowd, I could not
determine. I should have explained that
this was Shaw's first venture into the re
mote west; consequently he, like myself,
had never braved the COW boy in his lair.
The night train came thundering in on
time. "There's a new conductor on," said
Maxwell in my ear. "The boys have
Winded it ami there'll be music."
Sure enough. Scarcely had the conduct
or entered the office for orders when
"Pingl" sounded a gun and out went the
light. What followed beat bedlam let
loose. "Pop! Pop Pop!" went the guns,
and in the interval we could hear the con
ductor's howls for mercy. As soon as pos
sible Maxwell struck a light, and at the
sight of that pallid, trembling wretch a
shout went up. "Dig out" was the order,
and he dug, but before he reached the
door "Ping" went a gun, and a neatly
aimed bullet clipped a piece off hislioot
neel. "I'op; and the other beet was
winged. The train pulled out in short or
der. I found next morning that the shots
fired in the dark were "blanks," but how
was the conductor to know that?
In the course of time I became accus
tomed to the antics of these knights of the
saddle the only testimonial of regard
which I received from them being a bullet
hole through the crown of my Derby. I
was glad to get off with that, and in defer
ence to their well known prejudice I speed
ily exchanged the Derby for an orthodox
sombrero. 1 daily became more and more
interested in Miss Mollie. and we got on
capitally together so long as I refrained
from sentiment, but any exhibition of ten
derness on my part always resulted in
snubs or. worse yet, in open encouragement
of my rival, as I mentally styled Shaw.
This was very distracting when a fellow
was beginning to have serious thought! of
settling in life, and devote my efforts to it
as I would, I saw no way of securing the
owner of the black eyes for the "party of
the Becond part," In the forlorn hope of
engaging her father's influence I took
Brant into my confidence. 1 might have
pared myself the trouble.
He was a stout, comfortable sort of a
man, with the air of one who had been
"managed" all his life. It was plain t,, the
most casual observer that Miss Mollie was
the apple of his eye ami that her word was
law. We had merry times at the old ho
tel, for there was quite a party of young
people when the settlement rallied, SO we
hail dances, impromtu concert-, candy
pulls, and more frequently than anything
else horstdiack excursions.
A favorite rendezvous was the "Arm
chair," a huge rock within easy walking
distance of the hotel, and whenever we pic
nicked at that place Miss Mollie was wont
to enthrone herself in the chair, and none
disputed her possession, for she queened it
over us all right royally. I found still
another source of amusement. Small
game was abundant, and I developed a lik
ing for sport, although my Buccess at that
pastime was but Indifferent.
Our "affair" at t' is period was in a niot
critical condition. Shaw and I being neck
and neck, with the odds a little in Shaw's
favor. Mollie's spirits went up as mine
went down, and in a moment of inspiration
she suggested that we outdo all our pre
vious efforts and have a grand ball. The
suggestion was received witli enthusiasm,
and preparations were at once commenced.
The nearest town of any size. Glendive,
was ransacked for gay bunting, Rags, etc,
and when tlie bare walls of the big dining
room blossomed out the place Won a festive
appearance quite foreign to its usual asp el
The day before the ball word was received
that the largest consignment of cattle yet
shipped was on the way and would doubt
less reach us by morning. There was seri
ous talk of postponing the ball, but the
majority overruled the suggestion and the
work went merrily on.
In the morning the place was astir, and
all through the day "bunches " of cattle
were driven in until a thousand of them
were lowing in the sidetracked stock cars.
It was a big day's work, bat we hustled it
through, for right behind this consignment
marched another, and we were obliged to
keep things cleared up. The bail was
therefore delayed until late in the, veiling.
The myriad lanterns secured to illuminate
the scene had long been lighted when at
length we straggled in. Brant, with much
scraping and nourishing of the bow. was
"tuning Qp," when a knock sounded a; the
door and Shaw was informed that In-was
wanted at the station.
Me bent down toward pouting Mollis
and whispered something that might have
been excuses, but which did not dispel the
frown upon her brow. I at once regained
my good humor. I had found, to mj great
disgust, that Shaw was to open the ball
with Mollie anil had made in effort to se
cure a partner, preferring to sulk it out in
a corner. It took me but a moment to
seize this golden opportunity, and before
Shaw crossed tin- outer threshold 1 was
leading Miss Mollie to the top of the room.
It might have been live minutes that we
stood there laughing and chatting. The
fiddle had Bounded the first aote when the
great door burst open and in rushed Shaw,
hat less and gasping for breath.
"For God's sake, hide!" he shouted.
"The boys have taken the town. They are
shooting at everything in sight, and a
ilt'2-en of them put after me." Scarcely
Were the words spoken when zip went a
bullet right through the window pane, and
the old eight day clock on the opposite
wall stood stock st ill, with a bullet in its
vitals. At Shaw's first words Brant drop
ped his fiddle and drew the iron bar across
the outer door. Everythinjfwas in confu
sion. I found Mollie clinging to me, and I
rememlier telling her, incoherently, that I
would protect her with my life. Then I
Saw something that drove all other ideas
from my head. In one corner. of the room
waa a trapdoor leading to a dugout below,
where potatoes were stored.
I saw Shaw stoop and raise the door, and
as he sprang into the hole the door closed
noiselessly after him. A tremor ran
through the slender form I was supporting
with my arm. I glanced at Mollie, whose
eyes had followed my own, and would
you believe it? she was laughing.
At this moment there was a thundering
knock at the door. Stepping quietly up,
but making no motion to draw the bar,
the landlord asked, ' What do yer want,
A volley of shots was the reply, and then
a voice shouted, "Open up if yer don't
want to get a scorchin." this interlarded
with epithets more forcible than polite.
Before I fairly knew what she was about
Mollie sprang from my side, and fearlessly
drawing the great bar stood alone upon
the threshold. Maxwell stepped forward
as if to protect her, but she waved him
back. "Gentlemen."' she said calmly, "I
have a few friends here tonight, and the
hotel is full. Will you be so kind as to go
There was a moment's silence, then a
shout, but every man of them faced about
and marched, leaving pretty Mollie with
flushed cheeks mistress of the situation.
In the couiusion that ensued Shaw crept
out of the cellar, and I think no one but
myself and Mollie noticed his hasty exit.
Once more the fiddle sounded, once more
we took our places, and nothing occurred
to further mar the evening's enjoyment.
When Shaw, a little later, claimed Mol
lie's hand for a promised dance, she bent
on him such a look of scorn and contempt
that the few words she added were not
needed to complete his utter confusion.
There was a vacant place at the table set
for four next morning we had seen the
last of Shaw.
With my hated rival retired from the
field I now felt confidant that I should
eventually win Mollie and redoubled my
attentions accordingly. A week after the
eventful ball I sallied forth one afternoon
wheu work was dull, shotgun in hand,
bent on rabbit stew. Unconsciously I took
the pat h to the Armchair,- our old time ren
dezvous. Babbits were not plentiful that day, and
so busily occupied was I in castle building
that In-fore 1 was aware of it 1 stumbled
upon a scene not Intended for the eyes of a
third person. A jutting corner of rock hid
me from view, and 1 think I was justified
in lingering for a second glance. There in
the chair sat Miss Mollie. her arms twined
aliout the neck of Maxwell, who was kneel
ing at her feet.
Even in my dazed condition I recognized
the propriety of getting away, and without
waiting to secure the iubbit stew I rushed
back to tiie station and telegraphed my
resignation. There was a moment of em
barrassment as we met at the table that
night, then Maxwell stepped forward and
said. "Congratulate me, Baxter: Mollie
and Ian; going to the parson next Sunday."
