A tripling of effeminate rosins
and neat attire sat In the corner of a
frontier saloon modest silent and a s
far out of the way as he could get
He bad stepped from the train and he
was waiting for the stage It was
starched linen that he worst the city
showed quite plainly In his bat and
It Is still In dispute whether any down
was visible upon his lip But he was
old enough to be smoking a cigar with
all the appearance of habit This
clear also was not a native of the
town In fact the young man had
made no purchase upon entering the
saloons I nevertheless the proprietor
could scarcely complain of him The
stranger had asked If be might wait
here for the stage and bad thanked
the proprietor for his permission
Then he had sought his quiet cot
ner and lighted his cigar
asA citizen walked out of the back
j room and op to the bar lie had l
left a faro game and the proprietor
I was friendly with him but respect
1t I s
flavored delicately with just enough
I familiarity to bring it out It U prob
1able I that the citizen had had more
drinks than the one he POW tlVk It
It aim likely that fare had Lot gone
IIwell I with him this morning ai he
considered his due Hit ilitutlified l
eye fell upon the rosy youth and bit I
cigar and he took the glass from hli I
lips and held It considering the I
At length without removing hit
Christmad s
tree did that drop off l
The proprietor battened to take
j this view Its express tag has But
tered away I guest he whispered
The citizen remembered nil whim
ky swallowed it set the glass gently
down gently drew his sixshooter and
shot the cigar to smash oat of the
young mans month
isshould have done ttt Ihe young mans
place Something sensible I hope
Whit the youth did I know I should
not bare done You see that his be
havior ws out of the common lie
stooped down picked np hU cigar
found It ruined put It In the spittoon
got a fresh one out of hit pocket
found a match In his waistcoat slid It
along the seat of his nice breeches
lighted the new cigar and settled
himself once more In his chair with
out a word of protest or an attempt
at resentment The proprietor saw
him do It all and told about It after
The citizen took the second cigar
smash like the first Perhaps he
went a trifle nearer the youths Up I
What were the card pbyen In the I
back room doing at all this noise
They all lay flat on the floor like the
welltrained Indigenous people that I
The Real Bad Mm
What Hit friend Wanted
they were minding their own bust
ness For there was no rear exit
The youth felt In his waistcoat
pocket Dot brought no match from It
So he rose with still another fresh
Ill have to ak yon for a match
he laid to the proprietor who at once
accommodated him
Once again he slid the match be
neath hlicoattallt and bringing up
bit own ilxihooter shot the citizen at
Instantly dead ai that can be done
