"Buck Roberis is in town," he exclaimed,
as he disappeared. And a
moment later a young man came galloping
furiously down the road by
oourtesy dubbed a street yelling liko
a Comanche, and firing a pistol with
every'plunge of his excited horse. Tbo
stores had a continuous front porch or
gallery for soveral hundred foot, and
when Buck camo to its commencement,
he forced his animal (o mount tho steps
and continued his triumphal ontry in a
walk, shooting at signs, doors, Ac. Ho
was forced to practice his marksmanship
on inanimate objects, for tho people,
as he approached them, would run
to their holes.
Buck Roberts was drunk, of course,
and was having a little "fun" at the
expense of tho villagers. And the
business of the town was suspended un
til ono of his relatives was sent for to
quiot him down.
The next time ho visited the place,
to tho surprise of everybody, bo was
sober and declared be bad como to
town to take bis last drink.
"Well, let's have it now," said one of
his boon companions.
"No: not now. I'll wait till night.
I've just engaged myself to a nico girl.
I'm going to get married and q uit my
foolishness. So I've come to town to
swear off and take my last drink."
DEAra wnn ma last dbink.
The saloon was in a corner. In its
rear was a long walled. in yard, and
back- oHho yard was a hilly old field,
interspersed with bunches o'f scrubby
trees. In tho ovoning about 8 o'clock
Buck Roberts was on the porch of tbo
saloon protesting to bis incredulous
friends that ho was about ready to take
his last drink. Tho sky was clear and
tbo nearly full moon was shining in its
fullest splendor.
While Buck thus ontortainod his admires
on tho porob.a negro lying on tbo
gross in the shade of an aok on tho hill
side behind tho house, saw something
that struck him as singular, though be
bad no warning that anything
was impending.
Two men a large and a small one-emerged
from a small thiokot and came
skulking down into the road or street
near whiob tho blaok man lay,obsoured
in the tree's shadow.
The largo man was onvoloped in a
long cloak. Ho walked rapidly in a
stooping poBturo, and seemed to carry
something conooaled under the oloak.
Tho two stealthy figures entered an
open goto at the end of the yard, and
for a brief space of timo tho wall cnt off
their movements from tbo black man's
sight. But tho rear of the saloon being
on a hillside, was quito high from tho
ground, and the sole spectator soon
saw the two figures appear at tho top of
tho! steps and onter tho baok room,
which was in darknoss. Tbo iront
room, tho saloon, was lighted by lamps.
"No, I'm going to tako it by myseli"
said Buok Roberts. "I don't want no
oompany." And ho entored from the
gallery, and, walking up to tho counter,
gavo bis ordor. Ho took up tbo glass
And said with a smile:
"Boys, hero's my last drink."
And it was. For as tho glass touobed
his lips there was a flash and a loud report
through the open doer of the dark
baok room, and the boy dropped dead
in his tracks. A ohargo of buckshot
had passed through bis heart. Tbo
negro in the shadow on tbo hillsido
heard tho report of the gun and sprang
io his feet
"Dar den I" he mnttored. "I lay
dats dem boJv two men I seed. I
thonght doy wus up tnh some debil
Old Joo Roberts, Buck's father, had
ran to tho saloon a few minutes aftor
the killing. Ho soemod much grieved,
but moro exasperated as ho looked upon
the oorpso and questioned the nogro.
"Yuo say one was a big man and ono
little ono?"
"And the big 'un had on a long ooat
and oarried a gun under it?"
"No, suhpl didn't say he had no gun.
Hit pear'd like ho belt sump'n nnd' do
cloak, en it might nb ben uh gun."
"And you say thoy run off that a-way
cross the old flold? Northeast?"
"Yea, sub; dat'a do way doy went. I
kin show you, sub, any minute."
Old Joe turned to tho orowd with tho
air of ono who has mado up his mind.
"Gentlemen," he said, "my boy was
shot by Nick Robins. The big man
was Niok Robins, and the little 'un was
that trlflin' Tobo Elkins that lives with
Nick an' follows him like his tbadder.
You know my boy and Nick was cousins,
bnt thoy hated caoh othor liko

of Nick's houso, aud wont back that n-way.

And tho old man started for Robins'
homo, which was half a milo away, followed
by officers and many others.
Arriving there, Mrs. Robins camo to
tho door.
"My husband and Tobo Elkins aro

Then there was n huo and cry and
search for weeks for the missing men,
and at longth discovery of tho fact that
they woro being harbored and fed in
tho woods by a relative of Niok Robins.
This relativo lived somo twenty miles
from the place of tbo killing. In some
way it was learned that tho fugitives

Bwamp to a fenco at a certain place to
meet tho messenger who supplied them
daily with provisions.
snoi down in ms traces.
Ambushed by officers, ono of whom,
singular as it it may soem, was a near
kinsman of tbo late Buck Roberts,
Robins and Elkins appeared as antioi
patcd, and as they approaohed tbo
f onco' a gun was fired from tho ambush.
Robins dropped dead, and Elkins surrendered
in a stuto of abject terror.
Protesting innocence, bo mado a
of the most remarkable in
tho history of crime.
Elkins had no enmity nor canso of ill-
feeling against Buck Roborts, nor did
ho shoot or attempt to eboot tbo young
man. He simply went with his friend
and leader, Nick Robins, to seo him
commit tho murder. Nick informod
him of bis plan, and invited him to
bear him company.
Elkins was denied bail, and imprison
ed in tho county jail to await his trial
on A ehargo of murder.
Bnt Buck Roberts' friends wanted
tho prisoner's blood, and when thoy
learned that imprisonment at hard labor
for lifo would probably bo tho worst
penalty that could bo expected from
tho law, they resolved to lynch him.
Tbo jail was surprised and assaulted
ono morning about daylight, and whon
tho Sheriff arrived on tho econo he
found himself confronted by a determined
and unmanageable mob, who had
already captured tboir victim, and wore
bearing him away to tho woods.
Messengers ran wildly in every direction
to ronso up the lawyers and other
influential men of the town, and hun
dreds of people wore soon in pnrsuit of
tho lynchers, not to provontthem by
force, bnt to arrest their deadly purpose
by persuasion, if possible.
But the lynchers, led by the bereaved
father of Buck Roberts, wero resolved,
and after listening a few minntes to tho
excited arguments and appeals of a
number of law-abiding and influential
men, thoy put a rope about tho victim's
neck, and were about to silenco bis en
treaties for mcroy by strangulation,
when a wellknown and lo
cal preacher, tho Rov. Mr. L , camo
tearing his way through the crowd.
Ho bad run all tho way from town on
foot, and was pale, breathless, and per
"My, God, Mr. Roborts 1" ho gasped
seizing the old man's arm. "Let mo
pray for tbo man before you kill him."
Tho lynchers drew back before tbo
august aspect of the devout man of
God, who, without waiting for a reply,
dropped on bis knees and drow tbo
terrified prisoner down by his side.
Then ensued tho master prayer of the
minister's life. Beginning as it tbo
prisoner's condemnation was irrovoca
ble, ho appealed to tho young man to
ropont of bis sins and cast bimsolf with
out reserve npon tho Maker s mercy.
Tbon,addressing a pathotio argument to
Deity, ho spoko of Elkins' youth, temptations,
and weakness, and went on to
speak of the awful responsibility as
sumed by mobs in tho lawless taking of
human life. Interspcsing appeals to
God to open tho minds of tho lynchers
to tho orime they wero about them
selves to commit, and to tcaoh them
the sacredness of civil laws, tho duty of
oitizens to uphold thorn, and the ruinous
effects of lyncbings upon society, his
effort was a lengthy and masterly prayor
to the Almighty, intermixed with argu
ment and appeal to the maddened mob.
And it won. Old man Roborts
donly stopped to the preaober's sido,
laid his band on his shoulder, and said,
with teats streaming on his obooks:
"Parson, you're right. You've said
onough. We have no right to kill
Elkins. Let the law tako its course.
Boys, lot's disband."
And so the crowd dispersed, Elkins
was roturnod to jail, and a fowmonths

A Pioneer's Grave.
Helena (Mont.) Independent, May ;,
The funoral of Rov. L. B. Stateler,
Montana's first protestant pastor, who
came to tho territory and settled in
Willow Creek for a time, wbero ho
founded a congregation of tho Methodist
church, south, and who had labored
more than 30 years for the cause as ho
had begun, was ono of tbo most impressive
ever held in the State. It was attended
by many who had known the
old pioneer over sinco ho camo west,and
the coffin was laid lo rest on a hillsido
overlooking tho chapel whore ho began
his labors in tbo Stato, and whore his
wife, who bad gone beforo bim, was
laid.) An account of the ceremony is
thus given by A. G. Clarke, who returned
from Willow Crook yesterday:
"Tbo funoral sorvioes of Rev. L. B.
Stateler, tho venerablo pionceer minister
recently deceased, were held in
Stateler chapel at Willow creek, Mont.,
Tuesday, at 11 a. m. Moro people wero
presont than oonld find room in tho
bnilding. The ministers present wero:
Rev. R. S.I Clarke, Rov. E. J.
Stanley, Rev. E. L. Leo, Rev. J. E.
Squires, Rov. B. E. H. Warren, and
Rev, W. H. Kincaid. Old friends
from Helena, Butte, Whitehall,
Radersburg, and other portions of tho
surrounding country wero in
Rev. R. S. Clark preached tho
funeral discourse. The text was tbo
thirteenth chapter of Aots, tho soventh,
eighth and ninth verses. Tho sermon
was rich in thought and was listened
to with profound attention from beginning
to end. A biographical sketch of
tbe dead pioneer was read by Rov. E.
J. Stanley, and appropriate remarks
were mado by tho other clergymen,
who testified to tho noble character and
useful minister, Rev. Mr. Statolor.
"Tbo casket was covered with floral
offerings furnished .from homes scattered
from Gallatin to Bitter Root.,
But tho noblest tribute of all was tho
sobs and tears of tbo neighbors and
friends of tho man of God whom thoy
bad known more than SO yoars and who
bod shared with many of tbem tho toils
of a frontier life, Tho old pioneer
was buried by tbo side of his wife in
tbo family cemetery on tho hillside tbat
overlooks the littlo ohapel and not
more than one milo from where bo organized
the first society of bis
in January, 1805.
"Tho people of Montana owo a dobt
of gratitude to tbo momory of L. B.
Stateler. He identified himself with
her interests 83 years ago, having como
thither with other immigrants through
tbo wilderness under tho leadership of
tho famous guido, Jim Budger. Ho
was greatly attaohod to our country
