A NKW YKAl.'.i STOUT BY J. FHKDKMO
(Copyright, 1886, by tho Author.]
"Say, boys, them two kids didn't bev
?no Christmast bat, by thunder, they has
got tor hev a New Year. Jest oause they
ain't got no mothor's no reason they
should ho counted out of the deaL "
"Right you air, Pete."
"Them's njy sentiments to a tee."
"Boon so long sonoe I knowed what
New Year's was I've most forgot thar
was seoh a thing."
"You don't hov tor know. All yon
wanter do is tor ohip in. "
"Bet yer life I kin do that Mosey
along tli" hat"
Tho crowd of men lined along tho
bar in tho littlo frontier town had soft
hearts beneath their rough exteriors.
"FOUND 'KM A-GRYIN BY TnK SIDE OF TITB
and the hat did not have to make a seo
ond trip to be oomfortnbly filled. In
deed, as tho last man threw in his con
tribution it made a sum that gnarantood
"no slonoh of or New Year," as Yank
Hawkins said. The man at tho ond of
tho line dropped in a Colt 45, and in
answer to a look of surprised inquiry
waved his hand and said, "Busted."
Tho "two kids" had arrived in tho
town a mouth before with their worn
out, woarynud, as was easily to bo seen,
dying mother. Sho was looking, sho
said, for hor huBband, who had loft her
nearly a year boforo to try to oarvo out
a better fortuuo than was tho lot of a
Methodist minister in a small eastern
Whether he had stuok to his calling
or had tried his hand at moro socular
work sho did not know, but she had
hoard that ho had started for Sluice City
and had come thero to seek him. Lifo
away from him was nothing, sho added.
Tho disappointment at not finding
her husband scorned to sap what littlo
strongth she had left
Tho morniug after the arrival one of
tho denizens of Sluice City, passing tho
tumblo down oabin in which sin? had in
stalled horsolf, heard tho children cry
ing. He stoppod, listened, made ns if ho
would investigate, and then, muttering
"It's a shame 1" passod on. He had not
taken ten steps, though, until he sud
denly turuod book, and, walking to the
open door of tho cabin, peorod In.
What ho saw made him uncover his
head and stand staring nt tho bed.
There tho littlo woman lay, and it
needed no second glaneo to toll Poto
that sho had passed hoyond nil earthly
Tho two littlo tots wero standing by
tho sido of tho bod, crying and calling
for their mother to give them something
to cat But that ory failed to rcaoh
her oars. They wore past all mortal
A lump oamo in Poto's throat ho
swallowed hard two or throe times, and
then, for want of knowing what olso to
do, swore softly to himsolf.
Pete's experience with children had
boon limited, and ho gazed from tho two
children to that silent form and back to
tho children again.
The oontiugont who wero taking their
morniug "eye oponors" nt tho bar gasp
ed in astonishment as Pete stalked into
the room with a tear stained baby on
"Startin a family?"
"Didn't know you was a married
"Was you over a parson, Pete?"
"Conolndod tor run up, hov you?"
"YOU fellers shot up 1 Tho little
woman's dead, and these yore two kids
is left all alone. Found 'em a-oryin by
tho side of the bed, an her a-layin there
stiff an cold."
An awkward silence fell npon tho
group at this, and Pete oontinned:
"A conple of yon fellers go ont an dig
her a grave while I git those kids
somothin tor eat"
Pete set the two children on the bar
and with the holpof tho bartender, Vit
riol Jim, soon had thorn eating heartily
of broad and milk, wholly forgetful of
their bereavement. At 8 ond 6 our
troubles aro bnt summer clouds.
The oamp buried tho'mother with all
tho solemnity due the occasion and sot
up a rough hoadboard which read: "A
Parson's Wifor Sho Has Gono Bofore to
Blazo tho Trail."
Thou Sluioo City adopted tho two
orphans. Pote lnsistod that they should
be nnder his personal supervision, and
as what Pete said "went" in Sluico
City tho twoaohiidron slopt on one sldo
of his onbin and ho on tho other. Tho
swoariug, drinking, shooting six footer
showed them all the care and gentlencsB
that any ono not a woman could show.
Ho soon solved tho littlo mysteries of
their olothos, and it was a sight to
bring moistnro to tho oyos to soo tho fin
gors whioh had boon hnndior nt a pistol
trigger or a whisky glass fumbling nt
tho buttons and strings whilo tho object
of his attentions soriously imperiled tho
sight of his oyes or attempted to doprivo
him of a little handful of beard.
Many anight ho had started up in his
sloop, grasping his revolver, at a cry
from one of his chargos. Ho was joalous
of tho time ho had to bo away from
thorn, and Vitriol Jim, to whom they
wero intrusted during the day, was
threatened with diro and awful vongo
anoe should any harm befall them.
"Ono of you follers," said Peto, ''has
got tor ridoovor ter Tucson with mo ter
git tho fixin'sau presents. Wo'rc a-goin
tor do this thing hi bang up stylo. Whilo
we're gone the rest of you kill git the

time we git baok. Wo'll start over this
a'tornoon on git baok tormorrer. I hate
(er loavo 'em thot long, but I ain't a-goin
ter let no ono else 'tend ter bnyin the
things?thot is, of course, onless you
boys hev some objections tor me a-doin
No ono had any objections to offer,
or, if they had, they failed to mention
them. Objections, ns a ruin, woro not
mado to any i hing Pete eine e to do un
less theohjeotor"liad the drop on him,"
and thon it was a risky experiment.
With the oontonts of tho hat safely
stowed away Pete and Indifferent Iko
mounted their horses and took the trail
for Tucson amid a shower of parting
injuDOtions from tho crowd.
Tho tree and greens hod been out ac
cording to Poto's Instructions, and the
usual crowd were*calcining their in
their a-blowin lb the dost an forfeitten
what they went for, do you?" ventured
"You'd better not let Pete know you 1
made that remark. You might spend
yer New Year In a warmer climate
Tho argument that threatened was
averted by a yell from Con Brennau,
who had been gazing up the road.
"Here cornea one on 'em, hell bent
fer election 1"
Rushing out into the road, oalled by
courtesy a street, they saw in tho dis
tance a horseman bent down over bis
animal's nook and lashing the beast
As they, running, oame up to him he
stopped his horse with a jerk and sway
ed in the saddle. It was Independent
Ute, and as he slipped from bis panting
horso into their arms he gasped:
"InJona. Pete's holdln out down at
the Bowlders. I come after yon fellers.
Must save presents fer the kids. Git a
move on. I'm afraid I'm?done?for."
The laut word was not uttered before
thore was a rush for horsos, a quick
saddling and quicker mounting and a
scoroof mon swept down the road to tho
resouo of "the kids' New Year's," and,
At the foot of the immense rocks,
seemingly dropped there from tho sky
and which woro known as tbe Bowlders,
there lay a dead horso with bundles and
packages tied to his saddle, and abovo,
in an opening between two of tho rocks,
thore shone tho long barrels of two six
shooters, at the other end of which was
A dozen yelling redskins, hideous in
war paint, circled around 4he spot, fir

ward the dead horse and his bundles.
Eaoh timo that thoynoared bim puffs of
smoke would issue from those two bits
of stool and the Indians would swerve
off again. Three dead braves lying on
tho sand wero warnings against too
near an approach.
"They won't git them thar flxln's of
yours, kids, as long as I kin pull trig
?;er," soliloquized Pete. "J wonder if
ke got through. 'Bout timo the boys
was here if ho did. I wondor"?
His monologuo was out short by a
movement on tho part of tho Indians.
They had spread out in a half circle,
with him as a center point, and now,

at a shout from thoir lender, thoy dashed
toward him, yelling and firing with nil
"Woll, I guoss it's goodby, kids; but
I'll jest take a few of them devils along
wtth me fer company. They'll make
pretty ornimints fer the cabin. "
As they onmo within range Pete
opeued fire. Two dropped, aud thoy
wero oheokcd for a moment; only for n
moment, though, and it would have
boon goodby for Peto, when " Whoop 1
Yi-yi-yi-oopl Qivo tho devils hell!" and
in another moment the government

It was a triumphal procession that
entered Bluico City with Poto and the
"New Yoar fixin's" at thoir head. They
orowded around tho bar and kept Jim
busy supplying their demands. Inde
pendent Iko, stretched out on a bench,
raised up on his elbow und announced
with emphasis that ho"wa'n't so badly
hurt but what ho could still take lickcr."
Tho "liokor" rovived him so that ho
took a prominent part in tho hot discus
sion that arose as towhethor '.'tho kids"
should havo tho presents unfolded to
them that night or iu tho morning.
Tho argument ran high and trouble
was brewing when a soft voioo broke in
upon thoir wrangling with:
"What is tho trouble, my friends?
May bo I can mako an Impartial judge
for you. This is not the time of year for
quarrels betwoon brother men."
Poto and bis companions whirled
around and faced tho speaker who had
had the temerity to interfere in their
Ho was a small, tbin man, with hol
low cheeks, large, blue eyes sot far baok
in his head and a olean shaven face. He
was dressed in an old, black frock coat,
shiny with wear and showing its ago by
the bald snots at tho elbows and along
the edge, blaok trousers which bagged
at the knees and hung in fringes around
his dilapidated shoes and a nondescript
hat that had once been blaok also, but
now showed green from the weather.
"Can you spare me time enough,
friends, to auswer a question or two? I
am looking for a woman and two chil
dren, my wifo and babies, whom I
heard had como this way. Can yon give
mo any information in regard to thorn?"
Poto started forward with an angry
light in his eyes as ho thought of the
woman who had died and the two chil
dren who had been loft helpless on ac
count of this man's desertion. But tho
man's noxt words disarmed him:
"I was coming here, but fell ill and
lay two long weeks in tho hospital. Tho
first duy I was a bio to sit up thoy hand
ed mo a lottor from my wifo, in which
she said that sho was starting for bore

for the occasion by Vitriol Jim, and,
turning to his congregation, who, with
bared heads and rospootful attention,
woro groupod around him in front of
tho saloon, ho spoko, while the tears
rolled down his thin ohoeks and drop
