And those who heard, thrilled with the savase music of that bay, which awoke in their own breasts the latent savagery of the human beast. Their pulses beat to a faster measure, the righteous indignation of an outraged neighborhood, for the moment gave place to the fierce exultation of the hunters of wild beasts. Primeval man t awoke in them and, scorning the chas- leinujf euects oi centuries, rejoiced its the chase. Easterly the dog- tugged at his collar, as eagerly the crowd of young and old pressed in its wake. Yes, here was where he got through the hedge. It could be seen plainly, the gap, now that the dog pointed the way. To the right along the lane as far as the stile: over ! this and across the fields by the foot i path to the parsonage, straight on into the village. What stranger had passed through that day? Kagerly they asked eai h othtr the question. None could answer it. Ard the wonder grew a? step by step the keen-scented dog tracked the footsteps of this unknown fugitive, followed them into the various familiar places jn the village, the store the blacksmith shop, the Dostofrice! Men looked at each other with wonder and suspicion. What did it nin.? Kagerly the dog strained at his leash; quicker and even quicker he dragged Ids keener alone Again into the fields, back again into the vtlla-e, then along the road, bark to the house of death. Unerring!-.-, without a moment's hesitation, thi great, beast tugged along, waking the echoes of the coming night with his deep-throated bay, which announce.-! that he still held the trail and it wa. growing warm. Tense with the eager ness of the quest, they followed 'the hurrying dog, shrinking each from th other in the nameless suspicion fast growing in every breast. Arrived at the lawn before the house the hound turned prnmntlv toward the lilac bush. But it did not go quite, to it. At a point some dozen feet short of the shrub it turned off and headed again across the lawn toward the gap m th? hedge. Again to the right along the lane, over the stile, across the fields. The dog was tracking the track ing tarty. Among those who followed this hunt for a man was the hunted man himself, lafelong friends eyed each other as kance; in each face was a look writ by horror nd trepidation, which to the superficial might appear the look of i Emit itself, bach suspected his neigh j bor and felt himself suspected. Vain 1 in that universal un-asiness to s. ek to iread the guilty one. Nothing to do but to follow on this overlying trail. around and around until the end. P.ack a third time to Rose Oalile. the attendant fol lowers now lengthened to a trailing queue, as the dog pressed more eagerly forward, and the more infirm among line followers list ground, unable to , keep up., though none dreamed of drop ! fiing out. Panting, nearly overcome, a ; little group brought up the rear, enter ing the gr iunds just as the head of the : party, led by the indomitable hound, i was emerging from the gap in the hedge. The man holding the leash stum bled and the dog throw ti forward by his j own weight overran the scent and for a moment was at fault. He had it t as tin in a second, however, and w ith tt j bay of rejoicing resumed the tracking, i but in the o-th. r direction. Back again 1 to the gate of Rose Gable, back across i the- lawn, and with a snarl of rage the great beast tore itseif free from the re straining hand that held him and i spvuiir at the throat of Jasper rew nes. 1 "And th" sentence of the court is that . you be taken back to the place where I von have been confined and lie kept ! there until the 29th of March, when you ' shall be hanged by tlie neck until you be dead. And may iod have mercy on your soul." j ' The famous trial was over at last, and the villagers filed out of the court room, 1 silent and awed; still under the intlu : once of the impressive scene in which thev had just played a part, i "Who'd 'e thought it? Jasper IWwnes. ! of all men! Why, I'd 'most as soon 've i believed it of myself." It was Homer (lough who spoke to 1'ncle Amos, but he voiced the thought o the country side, which had not yet recovered from the amazement into ; which the une xpected climax of the : Rose (fable tragedy had thrown them. I For Jasper Wovvnes had lived all his lite amongst them, beloved for his gentle ; nature. "The human heart is a curious puz zle," said Uncle Amos. "There's never any telling what anybody'll do. You all : know how Jasper loved his half brother, ' and how- he took that brother's going ; to the bad to heart. Of course he I thought it was the wife's fault, and when he saw her living respected by the community, happy apparently, while his mother's son, the man he loved bet ter than he loved his life, was an out cast and drunkard, he lost his head." 1st.

Xha Editor of the Famous Arizona Kicker Makes a Statement. Some few weeks since, as published in this paper, we received a letter from a person in Montana signing himself "Bloody Bill." In that letter he stated that he felt it his duty to remove us from this cold world, and that as soon as the snow drifts melted and the walk ing got good he intended to show up at the Gulch and perforate our anatomy with hot lead. William of the Carmine did not ad vance any special reasons why he in tended to cut short our days, and his letter was tossed aside as having no great bearing on our future. The writer I and t'ne missive were forgotten in one j hour, and we w-atched the snow melt ! away and the crocuses rear their yel 1 low heads without the slightest feeling j of uneasiness. I Sunday last dawned bright and beau : tiful. We got up to find the birds sing ! ing, the saloons open for business, and a dreamy haze settling down over Big i Hob mountain. It was a day to make a man glad that he was alive.. We hadn't wanoered a quarter of a mile before we had forgiven all our enemies and wish ed every human being in the world good luck. There was a shadow over us, but we felt it not. There was a grim spectre on our trail, but the echo of his foot- steps did not reach our ears. I We had just passed the "Square Deal" ; poker parlors when we met Major ; White, who was wiping his mouth with I the back of his hand. He informed us I that a beetle browed man with two ! suns on him had iost aske.t him n-lipi-p we could be found, and whether Ari zona would miss us much if w e were to A JIKKTLE-BROU'ED LIAX TTiI TWO GUNS ON HIM. be laid away. It was the Major's opin ion that the man meant business, and he advised us to return to the otlice and get our guns before starting for church service. The advice was heeded. When we next a pP'-'ared on the avenue we were heeled. As is known to all our local readers. 1 we lead the church choir. That is, we : come in on the basso profundi.) In a way ; to ii waken the conscience of every sin t ner under the roof. We were making our way towards the sacred edifice, and j wondering whether old Jim Hewson would get drunk (did disturb the service, when a stranger turned in from Coyote 1 street and stopped us in our tracks. It j was the beetle browed man, and his I face wore a smile. He softly inquired t if our name was Jim Hellso, and when we replied in the affirmative his smile I broadrned and he observed: , S "Tncn you are the critter I am look- ing for and you can get ready to die! j I am Bloody Bill, of Montana. You ; must have got my letter some time ago." i We started to ask William why we ; shouldn't keep right on living, but , both his hands went back to his guns land we could read "shoot" in his eye. 1 That he meant to whizz from six to twelve bullets into us at close range there could be no doubt. We acted upon instinct. He was two or three seconds ahead of us. but the four ; guns came out as one. Where we got j the advantage was on the trigger, but i it was only by a hair's breadth. As ; William went dow n his bullet passed i through the rim of our hat. I ( nly the twrj shots were fired, Wil l liam was not killed outright, but lived j for about an hour. Ir. Johnson was I sent for, but said from the first that it j w-as a hopeless case. Wdlliam was con scious to the last. In the presence of ' several reputable witnesses he stated jthat he had come a distance of over 200 miles to remove us, and had just ar- rived that morning. As to his motive, ! he had decided to kill five great men durinsr the year IMP., and we were first ion his list. He had nothing against us personally, and was a constant reader of The Kicker. It was simply that we run the United States in a way that marked us for a victim. According to our . well-known custom, we gave orders -'to the undertaker to spare no expense, and Monday after noon the man was buried and we rode at the head of the funeral procession. A grave was made for him in our pri vate editorial graveyard, and as soon as his headstone is set up it will be num bered 15. In other wovds. in conducting the greatest weekly newspaper on earth for the last seven years we have had to dispose of fifteen different individuals who had an ambition to dispose of us. In each and every instance it his been a case of self-defense, and the coro ner's jury has promptly acquitted us. We do r.ot like to remove our fellow men There is something about it that oaddens us for days after, a fid it gives us a refutation that we by no means crave for. Many and many an evening we have walked through our graveyard and read the epitaphs on the head stones and sighed that it had to be so. We hoped to stop short at the tenth, but the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth came as we hoped on. Last year, when headstone No. 14 was reared we almost decided to run instead of shoot here after. The 14 has become 15. and our heart is heavy. While Bloody Bill was firmly bent on shooting us down, we have forgiven him. We lament his un timely fate. We would that he had gone "about his everyday life with a song in his heart instead of seeking tit out for slaughter. We have done all that we can for him except to trail the arbutus over his headstone when it is set up, and we hope that he is happier in the land which now records him as an eminent citizen. We are sure that if he had it to do over again he would turn his attention to some one else some one who is not lightning on the draw. His personal effects await the order of his relatfves, if he had any. Life-Cost of Accidents. It is strange how negligent we are as prcf credo:... " d especially as a nation, of the loss of life and t'c? cost of ac cidents. It is calculated that more dis ability is caused by them than by con sumption, pneumonia and cardiac dis eases combined. Compare this fact with the space taken up in medical and other literature by the consideration of acci dents. Has there been a single paper read in the last two national medical conventions on accidents? And yet is it .tin n n tn ':-'r-i I. - : J V FULL AN A. D. T.

Sta tistic ians reckon that 10,000,000 acci dents occur in the United States each year, killing 60. 000 persons. This num ber, says Dr. D. J- McMabon of New York city, is greater than that of all the casualties of the seventeen years' Na poleonic, wars. In all 68,000 working people are annually disabled for life in our country. 55,000 for more than three months and 400.000 incapacitated for less than three months. American Med icine. Losses of Horses in War. Deaths due to wounds received in bat tle constitute but an insignificant part of the losses of cavalry horses in war. It was only after a war experience of two veins that a cavalry bureau was established in 1863. This resulted in economy and increased efficiency, for an enormous number of horses, temporarily disabled through excessive marching and lack of forage, were turned in at the general depots and recuperated suf ficiently to he again issued. The num ber tur ned in was but a fraction of the whole number issued, owing to the diffi culty of returning worn-out horses from j distant and isolated points, some idea i of the dimensions of the remount busi ! ness may be had from the statement I that 1SS.71R horses were purchased dur I ing the fiscal year endinir June 30, 136. ! During the first eight months of that ! year the cavalry of the Army of the I Potomac was supplied with two cora i plete remounts, which required 40,oo0 j horses. The total number of mules and ' horses required to keep up the supply I for all the armies was 500 each day, and the data collected showed that for every two men of the whole"" force employed one animal was required in the ranks or trains. The recent experience of the British army in South Africa indicates that the loss of animals in the civil war was not exceptional and that whenever campaigns are undertaken in a sparsely settled country history will repeat it self.
