"Ohs, sty eovereth a mltituade of sing," were th last words that 1Ford wrote befers he tprnes to face the fatal shot. They headed a sub scription taken to bury Nellie Rnssell "Oharity covereth a multitude of slns' were the Arst words the reporter hear when he worked his way into the tubea saole. Every seat was taken. It was a curlous assemblnse-a mixture o the godly and the ungodly-and they me in this cotunron place and prayed that th charity which covereth siu might be met.e out to them when they, too,. should q eove the crest of the great divide. Before us a we rode stretched the winding trail over tb mountains, and below lay the black an( ghastly ruins of the town. Just shea.l lying brown in the glare of the senlipht were the mounds which lie above the bodie of Joe :immons and Billy Wall and Jessi Lester, and the others" Who have yfbnd resting place at the end of a life that was none to bright. A little white fence aropne a baby's grave .ilared in startling contras to the neatral colors. . As the horses toiled up. the hill they stopped at times to rest, and the mourneri braced the wheels with their feet, lent their carriage run backward. So the end came and at last we reached the grave. Around it were already gathered the people who had walked ahead. The pine bo: stood upon its rests over the yawning hole, In a minute the bearean had taken the wal. nut casket from the wagon and placed it ii the outer covering, and as the undertake screwed down the cover the woman whe stood by Bob through thick and thin gave a pitiful little moan. Then the box grate( down the aides of the grave, and the voice of the minister rose up in the great silence reading from the vere which says: "Bn now is Christ risen foro the dead." From their wagons' coming down thi hill had some the miners in their shirl sleeves and overalls, and they stood with uncovered heads and listened to the firs prayer they had heard in many days. 8t we buried him there on the mesa, and we all came down to the town, and eael called for his favorite drink. Withii fifteen minutes after the elone had faller into the grave the roulette wheel and the bank which had for the time been deserted were again in operation. "Yes, that came king, seven, you lose,' and then turning to the lookout: "Thii feller gave us a good talk, didn't he? Gcu Almiehty, but this pack's full of sevens.' And from the other side of the room: "Twenty-one, black, high, odd." in a monotonous chant-and to a player "Yes, I'd like to have the opal Bob wore.' So the day went by. And the tragedy was ended.
