A Bit of Expensive Lace.
There is a museum here devoted to the
preservation of old laces. Here the em
broidered fabric of hi-story and romance
enrolls itself before you somber with
tragic stains at one place, gay at another
with the rosy smiles of life. The most re
markable piece on exhibition is a flounce
made especially for the Kmpress Marie
Louise by order of Napoleon. It is quite
probable that the equal of this pnttern will
never lie produced. The texture of this
article is so fine thnt one could imagine it
the work of a fairy. It is point d'Alencon
with flowers, candelabra, symliolic vases
and birds which lose themselves in a mass
of delicate tracery.
This precious piece was the heritage of a
family of Parma, who sold it to the mu
seum for an enormous price in cold. In

t1 Lone Cfatw Made fey Soldiers After
Tiger Cat," and Row She VTaa Finally
Ban to Earth, bat Died Game at the
Copyright, 1892, by Charles B. Lewis.
The close of the war left the southwest
ii the hands of a desperate lot of rqen.
Ihe regular soldiers as they returned to
their homes accepted the situation, but
the partisan rangers and guerrilla bands
were loath to disperse. In hundreds of
cases they defied the Federal troops which
took possession of the country, and in scores
of instances they were hunted down and
kjlled. Among the worst of the lot along
the Red river were a dozen men who had
served under the notorious Quantrell, but
3one of them was the peer of a young
woman named Fanny Davis. That, I be
lieve, was her real name. She was the
daughter of a Missouri farmer, and left
home in 1863 to join QuantrelL She was
then twenty years of age, stout and robust,
but had a face which even her parents
called ugly. Three different members of
Quantrell's band have told me the story of
her introduction. The guerrillas were en
camped on the Neosho river, near the
boundary line between Kansas and the
Indian Territory. Tbey had nineteen
prisoners, twelve of whom were federal
soldiers and the remainder citizens who
bad been arrested as Unionists. The young
woman entered ramp on her own horse
armed with a shotgun and a revolver. She
told Quantrell she had come to join, but
he replied that such work aa his needed
stouter hearts than women could boast of.
"Who are those men?" she asked aa she
pointed to the unfortunates.
"What are you going to do with them?"
"Then I'll show you whether I have the
nerve of a man or a woman!"
The prisoners were under guard, but not
tied. She walked over to them and stood
six of them up in a row four soldiers and
two civilians. Then she drew her revolver
and passed down the line and shot every
man through the head. Two of the soldiers
belonged to the Third Wisconsin cavalry
and a third to the Second Kansas colored
regiment. Not a hand was r; ised to pre
vent her action, and when she had finished
Quantrell accepted her as a member of his
band. It was at this same time and place
that the guerrilla chief and his lieutenant
got into a dispute as to the killing power
of a carbine captured with one of the Fed
erals. To settle the question seven of the
prisoners were ordered to stand one behind
the other as closely as possible, and a guer
rilla stood about six feet from the first man
and fired at his ttody. The bullet killed the
first three and wounded the fourth. Two
of these men belonged to the Fourteenth
From this time on Fanny Davis was
called "Tiger Cat." and she never left the
band for a day. She was with it at Baxter
Springs when the horrible massacre took
place. In October, 183, General Blunt
started to remove bis headquarters from
Fort Scott, Kan., to Fort Smith, Ark. He
had an escort of ninety men, eiht or ten
wagons, the brigade band and a score of
staff officers, headquarters clerks ami non
combatants. As they neared the Springs,
which post was held by a small Federal
force, they were attacked by Quantrell's
band of fiOO men. About ninety of Blunt's
force were killed. Of these not more than
two were killed while fighting, the others
being shot down after surrender. The
wagon containing the entire brigade hand
was captured early in the fight, and no
sooner were the men deprived of their re
volvers than the guerrillas, led on by the
"Tiger Cat," began a massacre. Even the
little drummer boy was not spared. With
her own hand Fanny Davis killed five of
those unarmed men. She boasted of the
fact a dozen times afterward. It was this
she fiend who set fire to the wagon after
the bodies had been piled up in it, and who
rode over the battlefield firing upon the
wounded, Federals and shouting: "No
quarter!" No quarter!"
As soon as possible after the close of the
war the Federal authorities began to hunt
down Quantrell's guerrillas every man of
whom deserved hanging. The men scat
tered over a wide territory, and when the
pursuit became too hot some of them
crossed into Mexico and others "hid out"
in the swamps and had a price set on their
heads as outlaws. The "Tier Cat" took
up her quarters in the southeast corner of
the Indian Territory, where she had friends,
but was seen and heard of for a hundred
miles along the Arkansas line. Being a
woman, and, falsely suiting that the Fed
eral soldiers had wiped out her family in
Missouri, she gained the sympathy of a
lare class. Had she remained quiet and
peaceable she would not have been dis
turbed, but she went riding over the coun
try to stir up discord and gratify a hate
which had become a mania. She killed a
Federal soldier on the highway between
Doaksville, I. T., and Locksburg, Ark.,
and whenever she heard of a settler who
had favored the Union cause she sought to
revenge on him. Sometimes she had two
or three of the old band with her, but
of tener rode p'.one. She dressed entirely in
men's clothing and was generally taken
for a man. My orders from headquarters
in Arkansas in regard to this woman were:
"Take such force as you think necessary
and go in pursuit of the woman known as
Tiger Cat. If possible capture her alive,
that she may lie hanged for her many cold
blooded murders. You are expected to
ither bring her in as a prisoner or furnish
conclusive evidence that she is dead."
I took only one man with me a soldier
who had served as a scout the last two
years of the war. When last heard from
the "Tiger Cat" was ou the Arkansas
river, to the west of Van Buren. Had a
price been set on her head some of the In
dians would have turned out to hunt her
down, as they had others of the band, but
as there was nothing to be made they had
no interest in the case. Indeed they were
disposed to shield her. We had been
scouting for a week before wo got track of
her, and then we met her face to face on
the highway. We were dressed as citizens,
and passed ourselves off as horse buyers.
She had crossed the mountains and was on
her way south. We had a fair description
rf her, but she had somewhat disguised
herself. She usually wore her hair down
on her shoulders. On this occasion it was
cut short. Up to this time she had always
worn a black felt hat. She now had on a
cap. While she was smooth faced, her look
and bearing was exactly that of a man.
She bad reason to suspect every stranger,
for she knew that she was being hunted
tlown, but her conduct aa we met was cool
ness itself. We saw her when yet half a mile
away, and had she even slowed down we
ihould have suspected her. She came gal
loping up, halted aa she reached ua, and
after a "good day, strangers!" she addedi
"Half a dozen at ua are camped -over
there on Sugar creek. One of our mules
got away early this morning, and we are
out looking for him. Seen anything of the
critter along this road?"
I could say that I suspected her, but it
would not be the truth. I was dead sure
the stranger was a man, and when he ex
tended a flask and asked us to "nip," I put
him down as a good fellow. He was in no
hurry to go, and it was a quarter of an
hour before we separated. There was just
one unpleasant thing about him. While
bis talk was (riendlj and his smiles fre
quent, his eyes had a menacing look. Thev
never softened for an instant, but seemed
to thirst f or. blood. Both of us were struck
wilu IBM iacL, sua as we roue along we
concluded that the stranger was a bad man
! t f??l TS3tn- We had gone a distance of
in roe nines wnen we came upon an emi--grant
family in their wagon. It consisted
of husband, wife and five children, and
they belonged to the squatter fraternity.
All were scared half to death, as the man
we had encountered had held up the squat
ter for his money, which amounted to only
fourteen dollars. After securing it the rob
"If you meet any one looking for 'Tiger
Cat' tell them that she is still doing busi
ness at the old stand and can't be captured
or run out of the country!"
The squatter had never heard of the no
torious woman, but when he gave us her
message we knew that we had missed a
golden opportunity. We returned down
the road at a gallop, and then bean a pur
suit lasting three long weeks. All that first
day we were not more than five miles be
hind her at any hour, and we rode over
forty miles. She was headed for the Choc
taw country, and as she knew the roads
better than we did she gave us the slip
when night came. We picked up her trail
next day, but it was slow work following
it. Some of the people we met gave us
straight information, but others who evi
dently knew the woman and sympathized
with her put us on the wrong scent. Mile
by mile we traced her south to the Texas
border. She rested for two days with a
family living on the north bank of the Red
river, south of Doaksville, and then fol
lowed the stream down into Arkansas. In
some way she got information that she was
pursued, and she laid a plan to wipe us out.
Near the Arkansas line, where the high
way crossed a swamp, she prepared to am
bush and await our coming. We were
then one day behind her. There was a
squatter's cabin at the west end of the
swamp. She got there at noon and re
mained over night, passing for a man and
claiming to have been grievously wronged.
She carried the idea that a sheriff was after
her, and the squatter loaned her a double
barreled shotgun and selected her ambush.
This was known some weeks afterward and
he fled the country to escape arrest.
Just at the cabin a road came in from
the north, and as we reached it we met
two men on their way to Fulton. We
made inquiries of them and found that
they hail met a horseman about ten miles
up the north road. The description was a
fair one of "Tiger Cat," and we at once
started off on the gallop. The two men
Amos Fox and George Cunningham took
the road across the swamp and were shot
from their saddles by the woman in am
bush. This was at noon, and we did not
get back there until night. She then had
half a day's start of us and was doubtless
aware that she had killed the wrong men,
as she went off in great haste. She went
within four miles of Fulton and then
turned north and made for the mountains.
Our pursuit was slow, as we were strangers
to the country, but we managed to keep
the trail and finally reached a roadside
cabin at the foot of the mountain where
"Tiger Cat" had remained ot'er night.
Here she was also supposed to be a man,
and she again told a story to gain sym
pathy. When we had satisfied the settler
as to her true character he informed us
that she had gone to the northwest, over
the mountain. We were then only three
hours behind her. Her horse had cast two
Bhoes, aud she would likely halt on the
crest of a mountain at a hamlet called
Nobletown to get him reshod.
The mountain road was a rough one, but
we pushed ahead at a reckless pace, while
she had to let her horse take it easy. As a
consequence she arrived only half an hour
MlipKil of us. Wp.t liorsft was in the hands
! of the blacksmith, and the woman sat on a
stone at the door of the shop. She did not
see us nor we her until we turned a bend
in the trail about thirty rods above the
shop. She instantly dlrined our identity
and our mission. She had a repeating rifle,
which was standing against the rude log
shop. She sprang for this and had the gun
to her face almost as soon aa we had made
her out. Sh-) fired three shots as fast as
you could count. One of them passed
through my companion's hat a second
through the right ear of my horse the
third between our heads. Then, as we
dashed at her, she turned and retreated
into the shop and closed the door. Her
horse and the smith were outside. There
were two windows in the shop, and both
were open, while the space between the
logs had never lee.n chinked. We dis
mounted and took cover where we could
command the door. Opposite it and not over
ten rods away was a natural sink which
made an excellent rifle pit, and though she
got two more shots at us before we were
under cover her aim was not good. The
"Tiger Cat" had been driven to bay at last.
Our first move after getting into position
was to make use of the blacksmith and a
flag of truce. He was instructed to de
mand her surrender in the name of the
military authorities, and to say that our
orders were to capture or kill her. She
talked with him through a crevice, and
sent us her defy as follows: "Tell those
whelps that they can neither capture nor
kill me, aud that I give them ten minutes
to get out of this!"
At about 2 o'clock in the afternoon my
comrade got into position where his fire
could be directed on the end of the shop.
He fired for the crevices and through the
window while I did tbe same on the front.
The woman returned almost every shot up
to about 5 o'clock. Then she fired at longer
intervals, and finally ceased altogether.
We hoped that she bad been hit and dis
abled, and tbe blacksmith was advanced
with another flag of truce to ask for her
surrender. He walked up to the door and
called to her, but she did not answer. He
pushed tbe door open and saw her lying on
the ground, but at the same instant a bul
let from her revolver chipped his ear.
When he reported the state of affairs to us
we advanced upon the shop and finally
made a rush through the door. We ex
pected to be fired on from a corner, but the
woman lay on her side on the hard beaten
ground in the middle of the shop, and her
life had gone out. Thr;e of our bullets
had hit her and she was lying in a great
pool of blood, her right hand still firmly
holding the weapon fronu which she had
fired her last shot. Thus .fitly ended the
career of a woman whose record has no
equal in the history of our country.
Dig- Joe's Atmeaaen.
1 don't know what ailed Big Joe that
afternoon the emigrant family came Into'
camp. He woa aumerlmea 'gnen to queer
whims and notions, and now and then the
devil in him would flash out in a way to
make us keep as far away from him as
possible. He never mentioned home or
wife or children as other men did, and(
when he heart! them speak of such things
he would go off by himself and sulk like a
wounded animal. I always believed he had
been married and had a happy home, but
that he had suffered some great wrong and
was brooding over it. j
The emigrant family consisted of hus
band, wife and three small children. The
J horges were jaded, and poor, the wie ajjd,
1VS,J 1. " T l.l -.Mm n t anil V O
rauureii buuiuuKut; "
husband, bitterly repented of the enter
prise. We were in hard luck at Robinson's
Bend just then, but we could spare them a
little. They had awelcor from all but
Big Joe. He had one of his fits on that
day, and wlien asked to contribute he
cursed the emigrant for a fool and hoped
him all sorts of bad luck. Wife and chil
dren were frightened by his violent speech,
and the husband, though realizing that all
the rest of us made him welcome, hitched
up his team and drove on within an hour.
An hour before sundown a courier came
into camp from Washoe Flats, to the east,
and reported another raid by the Indians.
They had killed three prospectors out from
Washoe, and he himself had barely escaped.
Big Joe heard his statements along with
the rest of us, but we had nothing to say.
I remember that he sat on a rock, chin in
his hands and his eyes on the ground, and
when the rest of us went to supper he still
held his place. Twilight was coming down
when he arose and walked to his shanty,
and four or five minutes later he reappeared
with his rifle in hand. His face had lost
much of its ugliness by this time, and we
dared to question him.
"Whar am I goin?" he echoed as he
looked to see if the rifle was in order. "I'm
goin down the trail to find that fam'ly and
bring 'em back here. The fool orter knowed
more than to drive on."
"But you abused him, Joe."
"I didn't mean it for abuse. Folks hadn't
orter lie too mighty sensitive out this way.
You are a nice set of men to let that fam'ly
go drivin plump into the arms of the in
fernal redskins! Why didn't yon smooth
it over with the bighstrung tenderfoot?
Why didn't you insist on his staying?"
"We'll go with you, Joe adozen of us."
"No, I'll go alone. If I driv 'em away
I'll also bring 'em back. If I hurt his
feelins I'll ax his pardon."
The emigrants would be camped at the
spring, three miles away, and they would
fall an easy prey to the Indians if attacked.
We felt that we ought to go along with
Joe, but he insisted on going alone. I be
lieve he meant to humbly beg pardon for
his rudeness, and our company would have
embarrassed him. The night came on dark
and cloudy, and as a matter of precaution
we posted sentinels about the camp. Not
one of us slept till past midnight, waiting
for Joe to return with the family. It was
a plain trail down to the spring, and it
wouldu't take him over three-quarters of
an hour to reach the camp. Allow half an
hour for hitching up and a full hour for
returning, and they ought to have been in
by 11. We finally concluded that they had
decided to wait for daylight to return, and
those not detailed for guard duty turned in.
In the gray of morning the enmp was
aroused by the report that rifle firing had
been faintly heard in the direction of the
spring. As soon as it was light enough
to pick our way twenty men started out.
We looked for signs of Joe or the wagon
all the way down the trail, but found noth
ing. We finally reached the spring to find
our worst fears confirmed. The emigrant s'
horses lay dead on the grass, their throats
cut with Indian knives. The wngoti had
been fired and was now pretty wt-ll burned
up. On the grass near the smoldering camp
fire lay the emigrant, his scalp torn off and
half a dozen arrows bristling in his dead
body. Thirty feet away lay his wife
tomahawked and scalped. Beside her was
the youngest child, its head crushed by a
blow from a war club. All the liodies
were yet warm. To the south, just at the
edge of a thicket and at the foot of a lone
tree, we found Big Joe and he other two
children. When the attack came, or when
he realized that successful resistance could
not be made, the miner had tried to save
the little ones. He had leen shot and
scalped; the poor children had been toma
hawked. We had gathered about the body of Big
Joe, horror stricken at the swift and
bloody butchery, when he suddenly opened
his eyes and we could see his chest heave.
Water was brought and he drank it, and
as his head was propped up he whispered:
"Were they all wiped out?"
"Yes, every one but you."
"I I couldn't git him to go back," he
gasped with painful effort, "and so so I
staid to die with 'em."
More water was offered him, but as it
touched his lips he fell back dead.
