Black Bart., the Votori
ou Hlahwayman ol
Met a ReaI Amerlcan
Woman Who Played Garae of Poke.
With niin l'o Odd Stakes.
Black Bart, tae notrim,..
of California, once durinK Lis career ctime
across an American woman who turned the
tables on him ery cleverly. Bart was c
centric, and wh le holding up the coaches
in the Sierwa he did the most uuusua.
It happened in the sprinar of 1RT3 mti,.
east of Sacramc!nto, about 23 miles, in the
Sierra Nevada mountains, is a deep can
yon, at the head of which is abeautiful fall
of water known as "The Maiden's T "
The Nevada C.ty trail wound throutrh the
canyon. Near the falls the trail 1 JIT nrrnas
a flat, open space, with the stream on one
side and piles of huKe bowlders on the
A coach was crossinc thponen m ti,
Kuard, on the s,-at by the side of the driver
was dozing in the heat of the sun, and the
driver was strt ggling to keep his eyes opem
,UD tm:cu were seven passengers
among whom was a young woman bound
for Nevada to teach school. She was good
looking and plucky. She had been a teach
er four years iu the mining districts of the
west, and she was thoroughly acquainted
w ith the cust mis of the rough element in
mi! iiuii.M, oi w men she lived.
Ihe coach h 1 reached the center of the
open space when the noose of a lasso flung
from among the bowlders overhead settled
over tlie shou ders and arms of the drowsy
Buaiu, nun mine iwinuimg of an eye ho
was hauled to the ground. At the same
time a dwp v ice, calling from among the
rocks, ordered the driver to stop the horses
and hold up 1 is hands. The driver obeyed
without a protest. The passengers stuck
their heads through the coach doors just in
time to recehe an invitation from the voice
among the r cks to step down and line uti
with their Lands over their heads. The
order was promptly oheyed. When they
were in line, Black Bart, holding a revolver
in one hand and the lasso in the ot her,
stepped out irom among the bowlders and
came down to where the coach stood.
After biud tig the guard securely, he nro
ceeded to rt lieve the passengers of theil
monuy and valuables, tossing the plundei
into a big so ubrero that he had sat crown
down by the side of the road. In the pock
ets of one of the passengers he found a pack
of playing curds. He threw them with the
rest of his plunder into his hat. When he
had hnished searching the passengers, he
"You can put your hands down now. iren-
tlemen. H i mst le kituhr awkward stand
in iu that position. Tin sorry to mit von
to so much trouble; hut, you sec, I had to
have uioue, and 1 thought that this would
le a pretty Kood crowd to strike, I'm
kinder ashunitd of myself to put so pretty
a woman a.-t!iis latly is to so much trouble."
The highwayman smiled apologetically
on the yo mg schoolteacher, who aston
ished her fi llow passengers by smiling back
at the robber and saying:
"Don t worry yourself, Bart. It was n.
inconvenience at all."
"You kn yvr me?" said Bart iuquirincly.
"I've heard you descrilx'd so often tint 1
ieci pretty wen acquaiuteii wiiu jou, re
plied the S'-hooltencher.
The higl wayman appeared to feci flat
tered. '"I admire your spunk," he said.
"Most wot len faint when they see me."
"I never saw a man yet that I'd faint
for," replil the woman, to the horror of
her fellow passengers, who were afraid she
would anger Bart and drive him to some
desperate end. A second or two later they
were stricken dumb with amazement when
"Bart, 1 11 bet you that I can leat you
one deal a; stud poker. I U don't, you may
kiss me. If 1 do, you nm let this coach
and its ia Hsengers go on with their property
without f irther trouble. Will you do it?"
The pro position staggered Bart for an in
stant, but he recovered himself, and laugh
ing heartily said:
"Waal, miss, you beat any woman I ever
came acre ss before. I never kiss a woman
unless she's willin, but if you want to take
them chi-nces I'll play you, but I reckon
you've gi rin me the best of the bargain."
The woman promptly intimated that she
was really anxious to play for those stakes,
and preparations were made for the game.
It was ae reed that the driver should deal
the ciirds, and Bart insisted that the half
dozen passengers should stand up in a row
20 paces away, so that he might detect any
attempt it treachery. The teacher seated
herself c n a mail pouch that Bart had
dragged out for that purpose, and with his
rifle rest ng across his lap he settled him
self on o ie knee a short distance from her.
Word was given to start the game, and
the driver threw the first card to Bart face
down. The next card fell at the feet of the
schoolteacher. Each player was now en
titled to four cards, to be dealt faceup, and
Bart ca Jght the ace of clubs, while to the
teacher fell the seven spot of diamonds.
The hig'iwayman next caught the five spot
of hears, and his face flushed and he
smiled t onfidently, for the first card dealt
to him was a five spot, and he now held a
pair. 1 he teacher drew the deuce of dia
monds. Bart showed his elation when the
next card that fell before him proved to be
the five spot of clubs. He now had three
fives, and he was sure the game was his.
To the t eacher fell the four spot of spades.
Her lu:k was indeed wretched, but she
didn't teem to be the least disconcerted as
she loo'ced over at Bart's pair of fives and
then down at her seven spot high. The
last turn came, and the queen of clubs fell
in frotit of Bart, and the seven spot of
spades was the teacher's draw. She had a
pair of seven spots in sight.
Bart smiled. "Your luck came late." he
said. "I'm afraid you'll lose the kiss, for
here's another five." lie turned up the
first card, and it gave him three fives.
"You did well, sir," said the teacher,
"but I've got another seven spot here, and
I believe three of these are better than your
fives." She turned up the "roll" card, and
sure enough it was a seven spot.
Bart was set back for an instant, but
when he realized that he had been fairly
beaten he smiled, and helping the teacher
to her feet said: "Gentlemen, I've lost a
mighty big stake. Conie up here, one at a
time, ind get what belongs to you out of
The passengers joyfully obeyed the order.
Bart i etained their firearms. In a few mo
ments the passengers were in the coach and
were ( ;oing up the trail with a dash.
What the story of the schoolteacher's
pluck was told at Nevada City, the citizens
presented her with a handsome gold watch,
and t ie express company gave her a check
tor $1 000. The brave woman still lives in
a pnnperous Nevada town, where she be

Passenger Who Resort to All
Tricks to r.lde Free.
"It has to be a very pious man who won't
steal a ride when he gets the chance," af
firmed the conductor on the suburban train
to a reporter, who asked whether he ever
nad any difficulty in collecting fares from !
It is both amusing and interesting to i
watch the delight most people take in get
ting a free ride. The conductor passes
through the car saying, "Tickets, please,"
and turning from side to side, trying to
pick out all the new passengers aboard. The
majority of course have their tickets ready
and hold them out so that hecannot possibly
fail to see them, but there are a great num
ber of people also, who from the time they
enter a car begin reading the newspapers,
and the conductor might mildly say,"Tick
cts, please," till the dawn of doomsday be
fore he succeeded in attracting the atten
tion of these earnest readers.
If he is sure he hasn't punched the ticket,
he stops fairly in front of the passenger,
holds out his hand in a positive fashion and
sharply says, "Ticket!" Then the negligent
passenger will unbutton his coat and from
a flat pocketbook stored away in his vest
will slowly produce a ticket. A conductor
has to be positive in Ins demeanor, too, for
let a timid, "not sure'' glance betray to the
wily passenger that he is not going to have
his ticket demanded of him, and he will at
once put on a bold front and unconcernedly
watch the mau next to him handing over
his fare to the puzzled conductor without
once changing color.
"Tire women? Well, they may wear their
little silver crosses; they may even lie go
ing to church on Sunday with their Bibles
with 'em," said another conductor, "but
they will sneak a ride every time." And it
seems to lie true. The reporter watched,
and pretty soon a rather pretty woman
boarded the train at Thirty-ninth street.
From her watch chain hung the King's
Daughters' badge a little silver cross. She
sat down, aud soon the conductor came
along. He was not a hardened veteran,
and he seemed half afraid of making a mis
take, so he said in an undecided tone.
"Tickets!" But, oh, that questioning tone
and doubtful glance! lie passed the little
lady by, and she let him do it, just as if she
hadn't been a Daughter of the King. At
the next station he again came into the car
with the same expression and the same
question. He noticed her this time just
stopped and looked at her as he took up a
ticket from a man who sat next to her, and
she? well, she kept on reaumg. .Now, is
it possible that she didn't congratulate her
self upon being one ride ahead? Of course
she did, and she'd make that one ticket of
hers last forever if the conductors would
only let her.
Another passenger, well dressed and
gentlemanly, allowed the conductor to go
by without giving up his ticket, aud when
the official passed through the ear again he
looked hard at the man and said, "Ticket!"
But the interrogation in his voice settled
it. The man stared over the top of his paper
quite unconcerned. The conductor didn't
insist,, and when he turned his hack Mr.
Gentleman smiled audiblj-, and those who
sat mar him decided at once that he was a
most dishonest person, "though they'd all
been there before many a time, mrtny a
time." Chicago Journal.

It is of Byron's IVilidoti that one has
heard in that model biography the biog
raphy in which the sedulous Moore sidled
and ambled in accompaniment to his noble
friend's dramatic work. It is too clear that.
Byron took little trouble to disguise the
fact that he found I'olidnri intolerable. The
young physician "had become jealous of
the growing intimacy of l:i tml:!e patron
with Shelley," and a plan fur leaving lii:i.
out of an excursion on the lake of Geneva,
in which Shelley, Miss Goodwin and Miss
Clairmont were taking part, "completed
this mortification." In the soreness of his
feelings he indulged in some intemperate
remonstrances, which Ixtrd Byron indig
nantly resented, and the liquid bounds of
courtesy lM-ing passed on both sides the
dismissal of I'olidori nppvi'red even to him
self inevitable. The young Italian rushed
to his room, where he was interrupted
while attempting "that fatal act which
two or three years afterward he actually did
Byron, to his credit, followed up the doc
tor with a reconciliation. Byron permitted
himself to boast to his follower, who in
childish irritation asked him, "What, after
all, can you do that I cannot?" "Since
you force me to say," was the solemn reply,
"I can swim across that river. I can snuff
out that candle with a pistol shot at 20
paces, and I have written a poem of which
14,000 copies sold in one day." All through,
the unequal association was an incident to
the one man, life and death to the other.

Religions Training of Japanese.
Little or no importance is attached to the
religious training of Japanese children.
Whether the parents be Buddhists or Shin
toists it matters not, for in either case the
children rarely take any part in the reli
gious life of their parents or elders, and in
deed usually grow up in blissful ignorance
as to what it is all about. True, they may
be occasionally taken to the temple and
taught to rub their palms together, clap
thrice and incline their heads toward the
shrine as they toss their offering of rin
through the wooden grating of the huge
money till. They may have tome vague
notion that there is something meritorious
in all this, but nothing more'although ev
ery Japanese home has a latticed niche, or
kamidana, dedicated to the service of the
household Lares and Penates, or Daikoku
and Ebisuas they appear in Japan. Dr. W.
D. East lake in Popular Sciencti Monthly.
A Complete Outfit.
Princess Clementine, mother of the Priace
of Bulgaria, is the heroine of a good story.
The 'princess is a daughter of the late King
Louis Philippe. One day she asked her
sailor brother, the Due de Joinville, who
was starting for a cruise, to bring her back
the complete dress of a redskin chieftain's
wife. The duke returned in duecourse and
distributed presents among his sisters.
"This is for you, Clementine," he said as
he put a string of glass beads on the table.
"Very pretty," said the princess, "but
you promised me a complete dress."
"This is a complete dress,'' replied the
duke. "I never saw them wear any other."
To Dissuade Widows. ,.
The way things are in England is shown
by the proposition of a London periodical
that an association be formed to dissuade
widows from marrying a second time. This
is a mere matter of justice to the sisters
who had not yet had an initial chance in
the matrimonial market.

Humorous Views of Legislation.
The woman suffrage women hare arrived
at the story telling period, which is of it
self significant as showing that the hurly
burly righteous indignation period is past.
Their stories are about the absurdities of
legislators and their delilierations. These
they tell figuratively lying back in their
chairs wit h thumbs in their vest pockets.
A group of Massachusetts women set out
to memorialize the legislatu re on the sub
ject dearest to their heart.. The legislature
replied that it was too occupied with press
ing affairs to give attention to this subject.
The question then before the ouse was
whether fish should be caught with a seine
or with a hook. Three days were given for
a discussion of one side and three days for
a discussion of the other side of this ques
tion. At length, after a week's debate, the
question came to a decision, and it was re
solved that fish should be caught with a
seine and with a hook.
At another time some questions perti
nent to the protection of young girls was
prominent, and the same group of women,
who appear to sleep with one eye open on
the Massachusetts legislature, were ready
to Cmg themselves upon that lody when
the legislature took up the subject of lob
sters. The destruction of the young imma
ture lobster was argued with as much pa
thos as that of the young seals off Pribylov
islands. At length it was decided that for
the protection of the immature lobster in
its natural rights only lobsters of a certain
length could be legally sold in the state of
Massachusetts, and the legislature ad
journed. The result of this legislation was
that all the succulent, tender lobsters were
eent to New York, and Massachusetts ate
what was left. New York Evening Sun.
