STORY OF AN OLD FRONTIER FEUD.
A Gang of Rustlers Wiped Out to Avenge
a liungo Klder'tt Murder.
E. F. Beckwith, of Ula, Colo., has sought
entertainment at the Great Northern. As
he stalked through the lobby to the desk
the attention of every man in the place
was centered upon him. There was that
rolling something about his gait that itt
once proclaims the sailor or the man who
has spent his life in the saddle. Mr. Beck
with, who is a superbly proportioned man
of 8 feet 2 inches, wore a natty gray frock
suit, dun colored sombrero and a pair of
patent leather shoes with high heels heels
such as cowboys wear. It might be inci
dentally stated that Ed Beckwith, as he
is known throughout the west, is a partner
in the firm of Beckwith Bros., cattlemen,
and among the wealthiest in that line in
About three miles from Ula is his ranch
house, a bungalow painted white, with six
teen foot verandas on all sides. The bun
galow is fitted as no other house in exist
ence, the only thing American being a
range and a bathroom. For the last dec
ade Mr. Beckwith has employed his win
ters traveling in faroff lands and picking
up curios and articles of vertu. These
have been shipped home, and as a result
his house looks more like a museum than
anything else. Although a bachelor, Mr.
Beckwith is a sybarite, and the incongruity
of an Egyptian mummy leering under an
electric light rather amus'.-s him. Be it
known that no woman save his sister-in-
law has ever set foot in the charming place
he calls the ranch. '
Several years ago there was a gang of
rustlers known as the McCoy gang in cen
tral Colorado that robbed the cattlemen
right and left. So bold did they become
that tenderloin steaks were sold in Coropai
for a cent a pound. It was through the ef
forts of Beckwith that the gang was prac
tically annihilated, and that Dick McCoy,
one of the worst desperadoes ever unhung,
Is now "doing life" at Canyon City.
But for Beckwith b story. "It was in
October of 1838," began he, "that I found
Fred Arnold dead on lexas creek. Arnold
was one of our riders, you know. There
was a big hole iu his breast, and his legs
were riddled with Winchester bullets.
Both of his guns were in his belt. I knew
that Arnold was a quick man with a gun
and that he must have been ambushed. As
a matter of fact be rode the western range
because we knew him to be a fighter and
able to take care of himself iu any trouble
he might have with the McCoy gang.
A quick search showed tracks of a
couple of men and horses behind the wil
lows on the other side of the creek. The
trail of one of the men revealed that he
had dragged his left leg a trifle. That
meant Dick McCoy sure. After following
the trail of the horses for five miles, and
seeing that it pointed to the McCoy ranch.
I turned hack and pickeaf " ixior Arnold up
and took him to the ranch. The verdict of
the coroner's jury was, 'Murdered by per
sons unknown.' It's the regulation form.
but it didn't suit us. So we called a meet
ing of the cattlemen ahl talked it over. It
didn't take long to come to the conclusion
that if we wanted to pj'jtect our interests
and save the lives ot our riders and our
selves the McCoy gang had to be wiped out.
"In the early mornug two days later
sixteen men rode through the gulch that
ended at McCoy's 'lUiee. There wasn't
any shelter, and we h.td to ride for it. In
the corral were seven Bien killing rustled
cattle. On the fence .'Vrere half a dozen
hides with the brand?! cut out. The sight
made us crazy, and ulih a yell we dashed
forward. The rust irs "cut loose' first and
two of our men droifped out of their sad
dies. One was killed, the other shot
through the lioul"i-. We got six of the
seven. 1 he 8evi;-..ii was old Dick McCoy,
whom I winged s lie was trying to hide
behind a cow. The rustlers in the ranch
skipped out when t hey saw how it was go
ing. IVg Ieg Smith and a couple of others
who got away are now doing time at Can
yon City for robbing a Denver and Rio
Grande express train.
V e didn t kill McCoy and put him out
of his misery, but thought he'd suffer moi e
if ho was patched up and sentenced for life
for half a dozen murders. He's enjoying
himself in a tt-nnis suit in the 'pen in Can
yon City now." Chicago Inter Ocean.
J 'or Lean Women.
"The papers teem with advice to stout
women ou how to rid themselves of super
fluous flesh," said a woman who is not
stout the other day, "but I seldom find a
paragraph on the opposite side of the ques
tion. I should lie very glad to take on a
few pounds of nvoirdupois, and in a recent
visit to my physician .1 asked him how I
could accomplish it. To liegin with,' he
said, 'don't worry; toend with, don't worry,
and between times don't worry. I never
saw a thin woman yet,' iie went on, "who
was not a nervous one, and worry is a large
part of nerves. Stout women are often
nervous as well, but thin women are sure to

Where Fishing Is Exciting.
The audacious and irrepressible small
boy who provides himself with a piece of
string, a bent pin and a few angle worms
and hies him to Central park gets no end
of exhilarating and exciting sport fishing
for catfish in the lakes, where fishing is
strictly forbidden. He may not catch
much fish, but all the same he gets just as
much downright excitement out of it as
any expert angler, who, with an expensive
outfit, goes all the way to Canada to try
conclusions with the mighty salmon.
The excitement is furnished by the
"sparrow cop," who, in accordance with
the official rules and regulations which
govern his being, is bound to give chase to
the small boy whom he discovers trying to
beguile any member of the finny tribe into
surrendering his rights and privileges as .t
pensioner on the city's bounty, with noth
ing to do but swim around and enjoy life
in the park lakes. As the small boy is al
ways agile, and the "sparrow cop" is usu
ally both stout and lazy, the small loy
very seldom gets caught. To see a ficet
limbed youngster flying before a gray
coated guardian of the law and disregard
ing all injunctions to "keep off the gr.-i.-s"
is a spectacle greatly relished by all who
I asked a little lad whom I found dili
gently fishing in a secluded corner of the
lake what luck he had had.
"I ain't caught nothin, mister," he re
plied, "but jee whiz! I'se had lots o' sport.
De sparrer cops has chased me tree times.'-
The element of danger certainly does
lend rest to sport. New York Herald.
Mr. Wallenhar's Remarkable Xtng.
A rug 10 by 15 feet, made up of the fur
of thirteen wild animals, is now in the pos
session of W. H. Wallenbar. Mr. Wallen
bar keeps his rug, which cost him $1,500,
locked up in the vault in his office, and
takes it out only occasionally to exhibit it
to particular friends.
The rug was made in Moscow and took
one man two years to put the pieces to
gether. Finished the rug has the appear
ance of a rich mosaic, the deep yellow of
the tiger woven into the coal black of the
South sea seal in diamond shaped blocks.
The center is made up of three rings of a
diameter of twenty inches, the patchlike
diamond pieces radiating from a circular
tuft of monkey skin and bordered by a rim
of otter. The groundwork of the entire
piece is in monkey skin. Outside the large
center pieces are two rows of circles. The
outside contains fourteen circles six inches
in diameter, made of mink, Angora and
otter. The inner rows contain sixteen cir
cles of Russian sable and monkey skin.
At either end and on the sides is a
6-inch selvage of Russian silver fox hide,
and twenty silver gray fox tails adorn the
ends. In the make up pieces of the furs
from the Russia sable, Persian lamb. An

lleautlful Italian Women.
"The prettiest women in the world are
those of northern Italy," said Henry C.
Bartow, who has completed a trip around
the world. "Pretty is not exactly the
word to ho used in describing them. A
wax doll may be pretty. The women of
northern Italy are gloriously, madden
ingly beautiful. They are a mixture of
the French gentry and the old Italian
nobility, and inherit the vivacity of one
country and the voluptuous, half oriental
beauty of the other. If you want to
understand what the poet meant by the
'dark eyes' splendor' go not to the Vale of
Cashmere, nor to Cadiz, but to Milan.
Greece in her palmiest days could not pro
duce such perfect figures, nor Spain such
coquettes. Add to unrivaled beauty of
face and figure the sweet cadences of the
Italian tongue, and I defy any youngster
to get away from Milan without regret.
Someone has said that Italian is the moth
er tongue of the goddess of love; cer
tainly there is nothing sweeter it is mel
ody itself." St. Ixmis Globe-Democrat.
Kefore the War.
A veteran sportsman, speaking of the
hunting in South Carolina before the war,
said the other day, "Ducks used to swarm
in our rice fields then. Turkeys, partridges
and other game filled the forests. Snipe
infested the rice stubble in millions, and
woodcock were ilentiful iu every swamp
when in season. Never in any country
have deer been more strictly preserved.
From the 1st of February to the 1st of
August the sound of a gun was never
heard in certain preserves, where deer mul
tiplied like cattle. It was nothing unusual
for a planter to reserve four or five thou
sand acres of woodland for a deer park. I
have seen no less than twenty-two doer
cross the road in one herd. Bears also were
very common." Charleston News.
When Money la Freely Spent.
East aids Hebrews are no doubt as care
ful of their money as any people in the
world, but they will "part with the dol-
i lar" freely under two conditions sickness
i or death in the family. There is one poor
little flat off East Broadway where a little
child was badly scalded two weeks nj o.
: The family have had a trained nurse '1
' that time ai.d have had the doctor throe
, and four times a day, and all the members
will willingly work harder than ever to
get the money for it all. New York Times.
A Delicate Criticism.
A preacher recently asked a college
president what he thought of his sermon.
"I heard in it what I hope never to hear
again." "What was that?" "The clock
strike twice. " Chicago Standard.
