A Remarkable Shooting Scrape
in Northwestern Missouri.
Those Were th» Times That Tried Men's
Nerve, When All Carried Pistols and
Many Used Them—Shooting; at Close
Quarters —Jesse Saved tho Boy.
A recent writer in the Cincinnati Com
mercial reports the experience of a tele
graph operator in Princeton, Mo., many
years ago, when things in that region were
"powerful unsettled like," as the Arkan
«as people say. The operator, who had
never been west of Chicago, was delighted
with an assignment in the new free coun
try, which he had so long admired at a dis
tance, hut lie soon found that a certain ele
ment of the population was a little too free,
especially with revolvers. The rest of the
Btory is best told in his own words:
One evening I rented at my usual hour
of 7 o'clock and found the usual relay of
bangers on smoking, chewing and dis
cussing the latest "scrap," which sent
"Long Jim" Pike to join the silent majori
ty and St. Joe Bill to an improvised hos
pital iv the back room of the Golden Sun
Be n, with his carcass full of knife
wounds. The weather, however, was evi
dently not encouraging for discussions
that required an effort, and this one grew
lifeless and uninteresting, till one by one
my companions dropped out and I was left
At 3 in the morning a through passenger
train was due from the north, and about an
hour before train time there entered the
one waiting room of the depot a man about
medium height, dressed in the rough fash-
son of the country and wearing a slouch
hat that well shaded his face and left one
to guess at the character of tho wearer.
"Ticket to Cameron," was all he said as he
stepped to the window, and receiving his
piece of cardboard retired to a dark corner,
where he sat down.
I might have paid a little more attention
to his appearance had he not been shortly
followed, first by a party of six or seven
rather hard looking customers, who were
evidently under the influence of "Missouri
lightning," and a moment later by three or
four ladies with escorts. One of the gang
of roughs commenced using language tha*.
was more expressive than elegant, and T
had no other recourse but to go over anil
remonstrate with him. Somehow as 1
stepped across the room the feeling crime
over me that I was to have trouble, and a
little tremor of fear passed np and down
the seam of my waistcoat.
However, I kept bravely on, and in a
gentle and gentlemanly way reminded him
of the fact that there were ladies present,
and it was necessary for him to modify his
language. His friends sided with me and
attempted to keep him quiet, but Without
avail, and they finally arose and went out
on the platform, expecting of course that
he would follow. With drunken perverse
ness, however, he remained, and his talk
growing more and more vulgar I forgot
my fear, became mad, and walking over
to the tough seized him by the collar, and
before he had time to offer any resistance
had thrown him out of the door and on the
platform, where I left him in the hands of
his friends.
A half minute later I sawwhat made my
bair stand on end. In the door stood the
man I had thrown out, pistol in hand and
ready to shoot. Were you everunder fire?
Do you know what it is to stare death in
the face and realize that within the next
second a bullet will go plowing through
your body and but the tick of a watch
separates you from eternity? In a moment
I thought of every incident in my life, and
closed my eyes to receive the leaden mes
senger that would send me, fearfully un
prepared, into the great unknown. Almost
instantly two shots rang out, sounding like
the reports of cannon in that small room. I
felt a sharp twinge in my right knee, and
then all the animal in my nature was
aroused and I thirsted for blood. We
always kept a revolver in the money
drawer, and with a quick lunge through
the ticket window 1 reached it and turned
to kill, i£ possible, the man who bad fired
at me. I was too late. He lay on the flooi
clutching at his breast, from which the
blood was flowing in a crimson stream.
His revolver lay beside him. Over in the
corner sat the man with the slouch hat,
revolver in either hand, but not moving ft.
muscle or giving a sign.
The friends of the apparently dying man.
rushed in, and seeing me standing with a
revolver in my hand reached for theirs to
avenge tbeir companion. At the first
movement a quick, sharp voice rang out
from under the slouch hat in the corner in
no undecided tones.
"The man that pulls is a dead man!" and
the words were emphasized by the click of
the two guns that covered the party. No
one "pulled," but they looked sullenly at
the man who had dared single handed to
call them down.
There was an awful pause of a few sec
onds; then the rough nearest to the stran
ger, after a close scrutiny, sprang back
with the exclamation, "Jesse James, by
!" It was enough. That name carried
with it a power to subdue fiercer, more
bloodthirsty and braver men than those
in front of me.
Carefully they picked up the wounded
man, and as they carried him out again
that voice was heard, and this time it taid,
"The titan that harms that lad will answer
to me."
The train soon arrived and he departed
with it. My wound was slight and the
badly wounded man eventually recovered.
A few days later a train was robbed ou the
same railroad, only a few hours' ride from
Princeton, at the little hamlet of Win
ston. Two men lost their lives because
they resisted, and yet I somehow find a
very tender spot iv my heart when I think
of Jesse James.
Titus died in the third year of his
reign. Suspicions were entertained of
poison, the poisoner being believed to
be his brother Domitian, who succeeded
In the fall of' IS9O G. 0. Sexsmith, a

She Was Doing Her Share.
The young physician was tired when h«
returned from his evening's calls, but as
he settled back in his easy chair and his
pretty wife of only a month or two took a
seat beside him he asked affectionately:
"And has my little wife been lonely?"
"Oh, no," she said animatedly; "at least
not very. I've found something to busy
myself with."
"Indeed!" he said. "What is it?"
"Oh, I'm organizing a class. A lot of
young girls and married women are in it,
and we're exchanging experiences and
teaching each other how to cook."
"What do you do with the things you
cook," he asked interestedly.
"Oh, we send them to the neighbors just
to show what we can do. There's one
boarding house gets most of it. It's lots
of fun."
"Dear little woman," he said, leaning
over and kissing her. "Always thought
ful of your husband's practice. Always
anxious to extend it." —Detroit Free Press.

Stories of Lord Tollemache.
After landing on the south coast of Eng
land, Lord Tollemache put his wife and
children in a cab and himself walked to
the station. Stopping suddenly before a
barber's shop, he said to the shopman: "I
like the look of that wig in the window.
How long would it take to shave my
"A quarter of an hour, sir."
"I can give you twenty minutes, and I
shall then have five minutes to catch the
train." When ho joined his wife and
children he had the wig on. This story I
had from my father's own lips; the other
came to me less directly, but I have no
reason to doubt it. My grandmother-
Lady Elizabeth Tollemache—had a house
in London, and another Lady Elizabeth
lived in the next house, which was exactly
like it. My father, calling accidentally at
the wrong door, asked the servant, "Is
Lady Elizabeth at home?"
"Her ladyship receives nobody, sir; she
is ill in bed,"
"Stuff and nonsense I She is my mother."
And rushing past the astonished foot
man he ran up stairs to what he supposed
to be his mother's bedroom. —Spectator.
The Inspiration of a Famous Line.
The Drawer has very little sympathy, as
a rule, with those who inaike light of the
thoughts of great poets, but once in
awhile there comes a time when such per
versions arc quite excusable. One of these
times occurred recently, and the result
will not prove unpopular with those who
have suffered from the irregularities of
Bridget or the idiosyncrasies of Dinah.
Two men seated on a hotel veranda were
looking at the moon and quoting poetry,
when one of them said impressively:
Man may work from sun to sun.
But woman's work is never done.
The other turned his back upon the
moon at once, and breaking away from the
sentimentality of the moment ejaculated
to his wife, sitting at his side:
"Gad! The poet that wrote that must
have had a hired girl like ours!"— Harper's
Reudy for an Emergency.
Young Tutter (nervously)—l hope, Miss
Clara, your young brother won't touch my
new silk hat in the hall. I bear him play

me speak to him about it?
Tutter —Yes; I wish you would.
Miss Pinkerly—Willie, bring Mr. Tut
ter's bat into the parlor and put it down
by his chair, where he can reach it at any
moment. —Clothier and Furnisher.

Mother (sitting down just as the train
starts)—Oh, would you mind changing
seats with me, sir? My baby wants to look
out of tbe window.

politeness)— With pleasure, madam. I
have been saving this seat for him for half

Reflections on Poesy.
When the snow falls in the winter;
When it falls upon the mountain.
On the meadows, in the valleys.
Soft and white aud rather pretty.
Then the poet siDgs the praises
Of the Frost King, with his mantle
Made of ermine, very royal.
When the spring comes and the weather
Makes tho mantle somewhat dingy.
Quite malteso and not so pretty, '
Then the bard begins another
Song of nature light and airy, 9
With a soft refrain of verdure
And the breaking of the shackles
That the Frost King forged and welded—
•, That which used to be the mantle.
[ In the summer he is full of
I Gush about the blooming daisies
And some other things and nothings
Which would take a mighty volume
Just to mention in their order.
Then in autumn he becomes a
[ Devotee of smiling Ceres,
I Dedicates his pen to singing,
His new fountain pen to singing
Songs of bursting bins and harvests;
Makes the corn grow en the marshland
And some other things as doubtful.
For your poet is a dandy.
Facts have never yet disturbed him;
Nothing scares him; nothing stops him;
He is there at any angle;
Till hia ink runs out he'll go It
Up one side and down the other.
Neither flies nor brakes are on him;
He's a cyclone, that's what he is,
And he doesn't care who knows it.

Bow Thrifty People Utilise the Stat*
Flower of Kansas.
[Special Correspondence.]
Atchison, Kan., Oct. 4.—Beginning with
the middle of July and lasting until late
in October, Kansas does her best to earn
her right to the title of tbe Sunflower
State. The little black eyed Susans that
grow along creek banks and hide under
the trees are the first to make their ap
pearance, and as many as a hundred will
be found on one little bush. They are fol
lowed in a few weeks by a larger yellow
hearted sunflower, which is the shiest of
all varieties.
It is found only In occasional spots, bear
ing but one or two blossoms on each stalk,
that lack the peculiar resinous smell that
is part of tbe beauty and attractiveness of
the other varieties. From its delicate ap
pearance it might he called the invalid of
the sunflower family.
There are about twenty different kinds
of sunflowers in July that straggle along
one after the other—a sort of an advance
guard to proclaim the coming of the real
Kansas emblem flower that bursts into
bloom about the middle of August. It is
a drooping plant and often grows to an im
mense size. The leaves are heart shaped,
and the sunflowers are the largest knowri.
"When cultivated in gardens the seed pod
alone often measures seven inches in diam
eter. It grows on creek banks, fills up un
sightly hollows in the towns, casts a shade
along dusty roadways, claims a corner in
every flower garden, nods in at the second
story windows of houses, runs riot in the
fields, climbs the.fences to get in the way
of the plow in tbe corn field, and in a
saucy, impudent way claims the whole
state as its territory and empire.
Thrifty people save the seeds for chicken
feed; the leaves are used for fodder, the
stalks make good fuel, and the time is
coming when the farmers will convert the
seed into oil. They make an oil that is
little inferior to olive oil. An acre of land
will produce sixty bushels of seed, and
each bushel is equivalent to a gallon of oil.
The flower yields the best of honey, and
besides being the prettiest thing in the
state it can be made very useful.
The women wear them for corsage bou
quets, fill vases with them for every room
in the house, paint tbem on china for the
dining room and on lambrequins for the
parlor. The emblem of the state is found
all over the house. The children make
gum of the wax that accumulates on the
stalk. The maiden who wears them in her
hair has a lover who wears the badge of a
sunflower to denote his patriotism, and the
old folks love their brightness while con
demning their cheerfulness in sturdily
growing and blooming where corn and
oats will refuse to live.
They are the state emblem of loyalty and
patriotism. Interwoven in every part of
the state history, they have furnished a
theme alike for the patriot and poet. Al
bert Bigelow Paine, the Kansas poet, says
of the sunflower—and all Kansas people
echo him:
When all the sky above is jest ez blue ez blue
can be.
An the prairies air a-wavin like a yallerdriftin
Oh, 'tis here my soul goes sailin an my heart
is on the boom.

The Career of Montgomery Schuyler, of
the TCew York Times.
[Special Correspondence.]
New Yoek, Oct. 3. —Among the news
paper wTiters in New York there is no one
who has a more attractive or more engag
ing personality than Montgomery Schuy
. ler, of the New York Times.
In appearance he is handsome, strikingly
so, and in manner he is genial and demo
cratic, but he is plainly a person with
whom no one would care to take a liberty
or to make a joke with any personal bear
ing. For an amateur Mr. Schuyler has
singularly accurate knowledge of archi
tecture, and upon this subject he writes
with understanding and appreciation. An
architect whose work meets with Mr.
Schuyler's critical approval is usually a
very happy man. In music, too, he is a
He is descended from the first Peter
Schuyler, of Albany, and was born in
Ithaca forty-nine years ago, though he
does not look nearly so old. He entered
Hobart college in 1858, but was not grad
uated. His first newspaper work was
in 1865 on the New York World, when
Man ton Marble was editor and Willium
Henry Hurlbert and the late Ivory Cham
berlain the chief editorial writers. Mr.
Schuyler soon made his mark even in such
brilliant company as this, and for eighteen
years he retained a desk in that office, now
writing editorials, now art and theatrical
criticisms, and again serving as managing
editor. He was managing editor three or
four times, but he had a hearty distaste
for the drudgery of executive work. On
several occasions he did reporter's work,
and each time he showed the youngsters
in the office what could bedone iv the way
of first class descriptive writing. He re
ported among other occurrences the burst
ing of a dam in New England, several col
lege boat races and the hanging of Guiteau.
In 1883 Mr. Schuyler joined the staff of
the New York Times. Keeping up his
work on The Times he served for several
years as managing editor of Harper's
Weekly. The work in the two offices
after awhile became too burdensome and
he relinquished his place at Harper's. As
an editorial writer he is singularly happy.
It matters not how dry the subject may
be upon which he treats, he always makes
it interesting and never fails to say some
thing bright. The view he takes upon
any public or social question is that which
is natural to a gentleman and a clean and
cultivated man of the world, and what he
has to say is usually expressed in language
which it would be very difficult to im
prove. Jho, Gilmer Speed.
Swallowed a Trout.
A calf belonging to a Nazareth (Pa.) f arm
el:, while driuking water from a stream
Swallowed a trout about teu inches long.
The fish ran down the calf's throat, caus
ing the animal so much pain that the own
er was obliged to kill it.
They call a bicycle "the devil's chariot"
in Turkey, and the sultan forbids its use.
A Fortunate Cat.
A cat which patronizes the soda watel
fountain is an attraction of a drug store
in Sixth avenue, near Jefferson market.
It is a fine plump animal, with a layer
of fat for each t>f its thirteen years, hut
between its age and weight it is most
deliberate in its movements. Its teeth
are not what they once were by any
means, and so it gets along most easily
with liquid food. Long ago it discov
ered that the "cream" of the fountain
suited its tastes, and it has a habit of
going up to the counter and waiting
until it is served with light refreshments
in its own particular saucer. Then it
sits in the sunlight and blinks content
edly, the envy of all the small boys of
the neighborhood, whose visits to the
fountain are limited by circumstances
over which they have no control. —New
York Times.
A Possible Use for Serpents' Poison.
The experiments which I have been
making consist chiefly of soaking scraps
of meat, bits of hard boiled eggs and
things of that sort, in tho poison of
vipers and analyzing the changes which
resulted in them after a given interval.
From these and from similar trials it
was found that this fluid had the power
of dissolving the albumen of flesh like
the gastric juice has, so it is thought
that one great use (perhaps the greatest)
of the venom is to aid in tho digestion of
the serpent's food. Of course it might
do that and serve as ammunition to kill
the prey as well.—-Manchester Times.
