From the Memphis Avalanche, 29th.]
Vaty persons in North Mississippi and We.
reatensee are familiar with the names and deeo
of William Cullen Baker. the notoroous deaperad

worst characters of this age. and a brief stet -h of
bis career is worthy of record as a part of the hi,.
tory of the great Southwest. His lite. taken as ,
whole, demonstrates with peculiar fore the weak
ness of trail humanity, and the tenacity wit.
which events shape man's destiny.
Collen Baker, the almost beardless lad, who, hy d
his daring demeanor and insatiable thirst for hu.
man blood has been for months a terror to the a
citizens as well as to the military authorities, wa- d

never surrender until the Confederacy was fully

In the fall of 1865 a reward of one thousand
dollars was ottfred by the federal military au
'hraties of lexas for his head. rcooting parties
were sent out in all sections of the country t,
catch him. He warned the ioutzeus that if any of
them dared to intimate to thooe who sought t i I
capture him sa)thing in reference to his move
ments. he would visit noon theru the most ter
rible punishment. So well they knew the min
that no citizen could be found with suli at N
knowledge of the stopping places of Cullen
Baker to enable them to tell with any degree of p
accuracy where ('allen Baker could be found.
So terrible did be beconme that the mititary an. 3
tbhrities raised the reward offered for his head
from ose thousand to ten thousand dollars. a
While riding alcog the road on one occasion he I
observed the proclamation offering ten thousand a
dollars for bia head sticking on a tree. He read b
it, and, dianiounting.from his horse and coolly a
seating himself by the tree upon which he 'tond
it. he issued a counter proclamation, under his
own band, and offered ten thousand d liars tor the
head of any one of Ithe military satraps who
were imnlifesting so much anxiety about his own.
He put Lis proclamation on the true below the

" Oh well, that is more talk than anything else.

" No," said the hero of the epau'ets, " but I
don't care for that, I'll be apt to make his acquain.

you want liaker's hbad, and you say you are
WulI.bg to give $0,0AO for it, well, I am Cullen
Baker and am ready to furnish the head on your
order, when the money is paid." The ma~-r's
foce turned dead~y pale, his eyes started Irom
their sockets and in half gasping tones he said.
SesHlly, sir, I was not aware I was talking with
Mr. Baker himself. Of ceurse I could have noth
ina peisitial against you, and I don't see that it's
ary of my affair to be running myself into danger I

" No," said Baker," one should not always be

left the office of the major with uas moch uocon

the " wilds of the bulphur."
As soon as the majr could recover from what
be was pleased to denominate his surpri-e, he ral

"daring wizard." Reaching Boston, Bowie conn'y,
the mnjor and his party learned that Baker and a
corrpsnion were at the "tippling house enjoying
drTILk." The public aquare was at once surround
ed, and a demand made upon Baker to surrender.
Baker responded " all right," and casting his mild
blue eye around him to see bow many he had to
fight, meae a leap for his horse, reached him, and
in attempting to mount him dropped his pistol. He I
