all came in lined up. and seemed to say:
"Po I Icok nice enough to draw a prize for

had the failing, but many were turned
away because they failed to make street

Tho General's encounter with the desper

It became necessary for Governor "Wallace

and. in readiness for the occasion, two
men. a few minutes before midnight, sat
silent, eager, exr-octant. huddled together
In a little hut on the outskirts of old Santa
Fe. X. M.
Their gaze was fastened on the door.
One man was the owner of the rude homo
that stood desolate on the shifting sands
of tho great mesa. The other was General
Lew Wallace, Governor of New Mexico.
The hands c.f the clock pointed to the
hour of 1Z. The hush deepened. Suddenly
It was broken by the bound of a resolute
knock on the door of the cabin.
"Come lji." said the Governor of New
In night Hand a ntfle.
The door flew open, and, standing with
his form outlined by the moonlight behind
lilm. was the most feared, " the most des
perate, and most hunted man In the great
Southwest "BJly the Kid." In his right
hand he carried a Winchester. In his left
was a revolver. The weapons covered the
two occuinnts of the room.
"I was to meet the Governor here at
. midnight. It is midnight; is the Governor
f here?"
The light of the candle flickered against
a. boyish face, yi.t the man who stood in
the doorway was the most notorious des
perado In New Mexico. He had killed scores
of men; he was the quarry of every Sheriff
from the KIo Grande to the bordering foot
hills that shut in Death Valley. In facial
features "B.Ily tho Kid." the notorious
bandit .and fugitive from Justice, was a.
mere stripling. His narrow shoulders were
rounded, his posture slightly stooped, his
voice was low and effeminate. But his eyes
wore cold and piercing, steady, alert, gray,
like steel.
General Wallaca rose to his feet and
held out his hand, inviting the visitor for
ward for a conference.
"Your note gave the promise of absolute
protection." said the outlaw, warily.
"I have been true to my promise," re
plied the Governor. "This man," pointing
to the owner of the cabin, "and myself are
tbo only persons present."
Tho rlfto was slowly lowered, the revolver
returned to Its leather holster. "Billy" ad
vanced and the two seated themselves at
opposite sides of tho narrow table.
Hilly it Xevr Yoric Waif.
Explaining his midnight Interview with
"Billy the Kid." General Wallace says:
"The man whose deeds of blood had
drawn upon him the gaze of an entire na
tion was born a New York waif. Before he
was more than 10 years of age he was
brought to Indiana, and in Terrc Haute and
Indianapolis, where he was raised, he was
known a9 William Bonne. In 1STC when he
was about 17 years, old. he suddenly left
his home, crossed the Mississippi, and came
into the country of the men of his kind
the frontier of the far West.
"Billy bezan his career with an oath to
kill John Chlsum. hU first employer when
the lad reached the plaina Chhrom and
the 'Kid' had been unable to agree on
terms of settlement for a seasons' work.
The result was the lad's fearful vendetta
sworn not only against Chlsum, but against
all of Chlsum" s other employes as well.
" "For rarh herdsman employed by you
whom I kill.' 'Billy' sent word. 'I will de
duct J3 from our - nsquared account. If I
kill you.' he added, grimly, 'my bill will
be receipted in full.'
"Then his bloody career began. It was
not long until William Bonne, the wulf.
reared in the midst of the peaceful sur
roundings of Indiana, became the most
feared man In the Southwest. At the same
time he was the mont reverenced, the
most adored, and the most respected man

For several reasons the contest was one
in the Territory. It was the kind of good
reward that sometimes comes to bad men.
"Shortly before I had become Governor
of New Mexico. Chapman, a young attor

a dozen men were arrested, accused of the
crime. Among them wa Jesse James.
"While It was more than probable that
one or more of the men charged with the
murder were guilty, it was impossible to
prove the allegation, for the witnesses,
tilled with terror, tied the country. When
1 reached New Mexico It was stated on
every hand that 'Billy the Kid' had been
a witness to the murder. Could h be made
to testify? That was the question oa the

Youth's Companion.
One of the youngest grandchildren Is a
boy of 8. who Is possessed of a quick and re

lating upon this fact to his grandmother.
"Tisn't only In school I can remember
things." he said, proudly. "It's everywhere.
I remember dates and names, and places
where people live, and signs and placards,
and all sorts of things. And In Sunday
school I always know the whole lesson by

Xcw York. Julv s. r:em r --.,,.,.
sophomore at Harvard University, and a
son of President Henry W. Cannon of the
Chase National Bank of this city. Is the
inventor and builder cf a steam motor car
which has been repeatedly run at the rate
of more than a mile a minute upon an ordi

and last year he took an ordinary steam
automobile. whl:h"was not speedy enough.
to suit him, and by changing it to conform
to his Ideas he Increased the speed to about
double Its former rate. He entered this
car In tho free-for-all class rate at Provi
dence last fall and led tho field over a con
siderable part of the course, flnallr falling
behind and losing because of Inability to
pump water Into the boiler fast ennnc-h m
generate the amount of steam required to
maintain the high speed.
The results cf this experiment were so
satisfactory to Mr. Cannon that he began
last winter the construction of a complete
machine, embodying all the novelties of.
destjrn and construction which he had In
vented. This vehicle was completed a few
weeks ago and delighted Its Inventor by
miking a third of a mile, straightaway
over a rough road In 0:211-5. The steam
pressure at the start of the trial was r
rounds, and at the finish 2 pounds. Tho
next trial was over a smooth road, when
half a mile, straightaway, was covered In
0:13 4-3. with a steam prcssu of 300 pounds
at the start nnd 3T6 pourdsat the finish.

The machine was then tried on a circular

A particularly rakish effect Is glrta to

The large boiler gives the machine the
appearance of being much heavier than It

use than for general road work. The framtk
