early western bandits
Mason and the Harps, and their Den
in the Cave-in-the-Rocks
on the Ohio.
A writer who is contributing a series
of interesting sketches oi early Bfieaea
in the Southwest to the Natchez Cou
rier, thus tells something about some
lamous robbers who were the terror of
the country aboOt sixty years ago:
In those early times the Western
men brought their produce down the
river in Matboats, and when they sold
out their cargoes they would return in
large companies together by land. 1
once noticed that three men made
their appearance here, oue of whom
was remarkable for his very ferocious
appearauce. He had a scar of a deep
saber cut aero his brow. They were
drer-sed like backwoods fanners, and
minified ireely wilh the boatmen.
They " chaffered" a good deal about
the price of a great many articles, but
nothinir seemed to satisfy them. Hav-
iug made themselves acquainted with
all the boatmen and caroused with
them a good deal, they at last disap-
Beared. As they were walking up the
hill 1 heard something like the follow
ing conversation, though it was in a
suppressed whisper: "i say, Captain,"
saiil the smallest ofthe three, " there's
treesc worth nickiiiir down there."
Hold your jaw, Little Harp," replied
the other, "you are everlasting MaQi
bing; I'll have to masli your mown lor
you yet, before 1 get you broken iu,
you infernal villain, you."
About two monlhi alter these ruf
fians had disappeared, the whole couu
tiy was startled by the news that a
large company of Keiituckians had
been robbed liya band of robbers upon
the Nashville trace. Shortly after,
three gentlemen, a father anil his iwo
sous, started to Kentucky, and w ben
they had got pretty well into the
wilderness they, too, Were met and
robbed of everything they had. This
excited the community to the highest
pitch of indignation. They besought
Gov. Claibourne to bring the power
of the Government to bear and an t
the robbers. He accordingly offered a
large reward for them, dead or alive.
Great was the merrimi at made by
Masou that was the bandit's name -and
his men when they read the Gov
ernor's proclamation. They laughed
at and ridiculed it. How long he
could have defied the authorities no
one knows, if there had not been
treachery in the band. The old adage
that there is honor among thieves did
not hold good in this case. Ope niglil
they were sitting around their blazing
camp fires. Tbey had just made a
successful raid upon the settlements,
and Mason was distributing the
booty. Little Harp crept op behind
him and buried a tomahawk in his
head, tfaaob fell dead and his guilty
soul was Ushered into the presence of
his Jlaker. Jhe eunspirat'.rs tnen
ehopped off his hegd and brought it to
wa-mngion, tne scat ot Government,
and claimed the reward. lieu it
was noised about that the great rob
ber, .Mason, was killed, and thai his
head was in Washington for identifi
cation, all the people in the settlement
Du near Hocked to see it. Many
whd had be, victims recognized it at
once nnd swoVe to itj twruwaano
mistaking those ghastly grim features,
with the terriole scar. The men who
had done the deed w ere halted at first
as public benefactors, lor they had rid
the world of monster.
Now, although the QOTejrnor had
promised a large reward, yet BUfbCt
Innately w hen he called for the money
it was baud that the treasury was
empty (this seems to Lr R chronic
complaint with my dear otd hiato.;
Of course the captors of Mason Were
delayed i getting their pay. This
led to the UrtrrhnT) Of the conspira
tors, and it so happened the old
gentleman and 'his two sons, who
had been rubbed, afupp among th(.
numlier who came to look si the
robler's head. The moment they laid
their eyes on Little Ham they ex
changed glances. The father Hipped
out, and in a little whiie appeared
wilhpn officer. Raising his voise and
pointiiie, finger at Little Harp,
he said, '! chargi- you, t'r as being
one of Mason's bund of rot.u.i-.."
Little Harp was seized, and his ac
cbmpilue also. This was almost as
startling to the crowd as w as the sight
of Mason's bead'
At that tune thero was a little town
in Jefferson County, near the Chab
ley's fork of Cole Creek, named Green
ville, in honor of Gen. Nathaniel ,
Green. The original site was bought
from the estate of (Mum, was alter

were its-trustees: 1. V. Bauc.de, ij.

Hobert Cox.
This little town, which has since
passed into the "tilings that were,"
was then the county seat; thither
I.itJIe Harp w;r conveyed, anil was
regularly tiiud and convicted. He
was hung,' and the omi.'J of Mason

All ol vou have, no doubt, heard Of

The story of ' LittiiS 12an" has
already been written in a lut.c b iok
called ""Hall's Legend! of the West." '
It jfiCIiis that there were two brothers :

Big Harp was pursued by ft rigantlc

for hours oil h,ieback, until at lasl
Harp's horse fell ; then came a hand- j

Modeling from Memory.
I union, the celebrated caricaturist
who died recently at Baden-linden,
bhi nee. Numbere of anecdotes are
told of his feau in this way. One day
a young man came into his studio and
told him that he had a sister mortally
ill, and that bin family wished to have
her portrait. They dared not ask her
to sit; to do so wouldriiave been to
awaken her suspicion. In a word,
Danton undertook to reproduce her
f-atures from memory. 'Ihe next day
the brother informed his sister that he j
intended to make her a present ot
