The Greaser
By Phil Stmma
The blistering sun pelted with Its
fire the shanties of Santa Rosa by the
Rio Pecos Already the Bar Q
bunch had started on their wild Satur
day drunk the broncho rack outside
Miguels 40rod emporium being A
tangle of restless pony flesh
Far up the shadowy valley broad
and arid developed a speck which
enveloped In a cloud of alkali grew
rapidly bigger
A slender figure white with dust
tumbled off a staggering horse and
dashed up to the door then through
Huh Its only Jose Pimas the
Greaser the men exclaimed con
Perhaps some of you gentlemen
can tell me the news of Escalon
my home said Jose turning his boy
ish face toward the men
No replied Tarna the Swede a
malicious twinkle in his eye nothing
except that Gloria your sister ran off
with Onovas the murderer
Joses hand flashed to I1I3 holster
but he replied quietly
I know that
Did you know Tarna went on
that the committee will string him
up at noon today for killing Gonzales
and robbing him
Then its true Joses da t face
went ashen
True as gospel Onovas Is a goner
at 12 oclock
Men cried Jose addressing tn e
crowd my horse Is done for Its
100 miles to Escalon and I must get
there by noon Ive got to get there
Heres 5100 In gold for a broncho
There was a dsrisive laughfrom the
Who wants your gold Tarna
sneered f Whove you been sticking
up for it eh
Take 2007its f Gloria Joe
pleaded 1
Tarna moved threateningly but
Jose darted through the door
The Jeering cowboys followed
Tarna In the lead At thethreshold
he yelled and sprang Into the open
Hes on my hoss
Tamas gun was In his hand but
ho was too slow Jose wheeled i and
fired as he dashed away and Tarna
The1 telephone one man shouted
The Greaser go through Sablnal
20 miles this side of Escalon Well
head him off the dog
At Corral Blanca Jose swapped
steedswith litUedifflcidtyXorhe
his own tired animal and rrnu chj gofd 5
In exchange t ftC V M JT
Poor lltilasist e rjhe kept mur
muring to himself as hV rodel Again
and again he exchanged steeds for
money even if bloody and stolen will
buy almost anythihg
An hour anil a J d before noon
with it fresh pony > der him he sight
ed Sablnal In front of a group of
frasae buildings 50 or more men from
the ranches bunched themselves
against his coming
It was too late to turn back now
Like the wind he was upon them Ha
answered their shouts by drawing his
Colts and flattening hl3 thin body
upon the horsea back
Like the Red sea opened before the
Israelites the mob parted and be
tween the human walls Jose darted
like a bird A fusillade followed a
bullet grazing his temple and covering
his face with blood He fired back as
he loped away
At last Escalon In the main streets
the regular Saturday crowds ha3 gath
ered from the ranches Jose knew
what it meant today The sun was
straight overhead and Joses brain
reeled frightfully but his eyes wero
not too dim to see the rude gallows
erected by the committee fora publics
execution a lesson to all outlaws
A few hundred feet away now Josa
descried the erect form of Onovas
good Onovas mounted on the scaffold
his hands tied behind his back Her
arms about his heck Gloria stood by
him weeping
For the murder of the commit
teeman began but a commotion in
the crowd stopped hlm
Jose hit face dirty caked with dust
and blood reeled up the steps
It was not Onovas senor he
cried faintly staggering and falling
to his knees it was I senor I who
killed Gonzales See tossing a hand
ful of gold at the committeemans
feet see theres the gold I did it
The rope was fastened about his
neck the law was avenged
HldlngPlacet of Diamonds
If the Regent diamond as shown tn
the Louvre in Paris is only a model
in paste and thereal stone is hidden
away It Is a case of history repeat
ing itself for in 1797 when the Re
gent diamond was pawned for house
furniture to Vandenberg a banker of
Amsterdam and he was remonstrated
with upon the danger of exhibiting it
to the public he replied The Re
gent that is in the glass case Is a
sham the real Regent Is In my wifea
Unconscious Truth
Dont you ever go to Mme Chiffon
for your gowns Inquired one society
girl of another
No indeed emphatically replied
the other If I went to that woman
and she made a gown to suit my fig
