The everlasting plain embraced it. Two solitary "buttes, named Hurlbut" and "Lawrence," had been placed on guard over the region by na ture, and looked as dismal as sentinels in a penal settlement. A month's hammer ing, and the new town was built. Before one street was surveyed, however, the en gineer was called upon to locate a grave yard. This he did upon a ridge overlook ing the town. 'Til give you a high lot" was a threat in Sheridan, and meant six feet of soil on the hill-side. During the first week three of the inhabitants moved into that country "with their boots on." During the winter the number increased to twenty-six. There were many queer characters dev eloped in this rough town. For instance, a pettifogger from rural New York be came "Neb, the devil's own." Neb waB an abreviation of Nebuchadnezzar, which name he won from "taking" so naturally to grass, or, more correctly to the prairie, when it was necessary to hide on account of misdeeds. Had any one been interested enough to make weekly inquiries-about Neb's whereabouts the answer would generally have been, "Out at grass." On two occasions he assisted men to enter eternity without previously using a boot jack. Once when an Irish mob was cele brating pay-day in "Rat Row," a favorite street of the Paddies, Neb ran out of the hotel opposite, aud emptied sixteen shots from a Henry rifle among the Patricks and Bridgets. No one was killed, but the 'devil's own" found it necessary to go in to exile on the back of a stray mule, fol lowed for hundreds of yards by a howling mob and shower of bullets. When, one week later, Neb appeared in Sheridan so ciety again, he wore a pair of Uncle Sam uel's bracelets, and was charged with counterfeiting said Samuel's paper. From the rickety jail he was taken the ensuing night and hung to a railroad trestle ad joining town. It then transpired that he had been chief of a gang who manufac tured the "queer" in a "dug-out" near Sheridan. Under the body, as mourner, next morning was found his daughter, who had never been seen in that vicinity before. She was a bright, sweet-faced girl. from the vicinity of Rutland, Ver mont, and it was learned, had been sum moned West that week by her father for the purpose of accompanying him to California. Neb had accumulated quite a little sum of money, and evidently inten ded settling down for life elsewhere, when the last fatal spree settled him under the wailing grass, over which he had so often fled like a fox. Some effort was made to send the young girl back, but her better nature was crushed by the shame of her father's life and death. Poor thing! I saw her some months afterward, and felt that better it would have been had Death spread his cold but charitablewings over the daughter when he smote the father. Judge Lynch was Justice's favorite of ficial, and the railroad trestle the gal lows tree which bore monthly and some times daily fruit. Passengers standing on the platforms of the cars have occas ionally drawn back in affright as they be held gazing up at them the distorted, grinning face of some Texas Jack or Cal ifornia Joe, swinging back and forth like a pendulum before the prairie gale. Vigilance juries sometimes brought in queer verdicts in Judge Lynch's Sheri dan Circuit. For instance, one man ar rested on suspicion called the court names, and incurred the following sen tence, "Thisyere court feels herself in sulted with out due cause, and orders the prisoner strung up for contempt." And strung up he straightway was. Another character of celebrity 5n Sher idan was "Ascension Stephen." This worthy was a half-witted Millerite, who climbed the two buttea twice every month, with a saloon table-cloth in his pocket that might aaawer for a wrapper when the great trumpet should soand.
