THE RUSTLER’S CONVERSION Kindness Subdues a One Time Border Ruffian. Some years ago I visited the far west, passing through a region that had been Infested by the worst ele ment of society. 1 put up one night at the house of John Murphy, a sheep raiser. His ranch house was not large, but com fortable, and Its decorations showed evidence of refinement. His wife was • woman who impressed me as one having considerable equipolae and Character. After aupper 1 went out on the porch to have a smoke with Murphy and listened with Interest to bis account of the building up of his region. During our conversation I stated the opinion that men were what women made them. Then he told me his story. "You're dead right stranger." he said, "and I’m one of the men that have been made by a woman. When I came to this country It was from an eastern city, and my education was derived from the dime novel. 1 was a waif, with no father or mother to Instill into me the fact that however brave the road agents and others of whom I read they were acting on a wrong principle. Ae It waa. 1 ad mired them, and almost before 1 be came a man I scraped up enough money to bring me out here to live the life of my heroes of the dime novel. "I soon got to be a head man among them and for eight years lived a life that I would give anything I have to forget. I have to be thankful for only one thing. During that frightful i»e rlod I never took a life. 1 didn't ac cumulate any money, and If 1 had I should later on have got rid of It. "One evening I stopped at a house End knocked at the door. I Intended to ask for some supper, expecting once inside to get my bearings for valua bles and take them away with me. I had started in with the Intention of confining ray operations to stage coaches. army paymasters and the like, but man Is always going either uphill or downhill, and as I was neces •arily going down 1 wasn’t above tak ing anything I could get my hands on. even from a woman. "A woman came to the door. She was young and fairly good looking. To my request for some supper she gave a smiling assent, asking me to come In and make myself comfortable. She went into the kitchen, and I looked about me. There was a chimney in the room where I was with no fire. 1 |tgew a chimney was a favorite place to bide money, end. going to the fire place. I stopped and looked up. On a projecting brick I saw a small box. which I appropriated and. lifting the cover, saw a lot of bills and loose change. I slipped It all In my pocket and put the box back in the chimney. "By and by the young woman came in and set n good supper on the table, f ate my fill and when I find finished took out one of the coins I had taken from the box and handl’d it to her. “‘No.’ she sold: 'there's nothing to pay. You're quite welcome to your supper. I hope it has done yon good. You looked tired and hungry when you came Id. and I felt sorry for you. So I hare given you the best iu the house.' “That was the first lesson In kindli ness I ever received. At any rate. It waa the first that ever took hold of me. When I thought of the contents of the box In my pocket and my offer ing one of her own coins in payment for her kindness, not the least part of which was the way she offered It. my despicable meanness seemed to shrivel me all up. I couldn’t look her In the face. •* ‘You don’t need to go on.' she said ‘We have a spare bed upstairs.’ “I was thinking how I could get the money back In the box tn the chim ney. and It occurred to me that If I stayed there all night I could slip down in the night and do the Job. 8o I said: 'Thank you. miss. If yon don’t mind I reckon 1 will. It’ll be a great accommodation to me.’ “ ‘No more than to me. My brother and his wife have gone away for a few days and left me alone with the children. They say that Murphy s gang Is operating In the neighborhood, and I wouldn’t mind having a man In the house.’ “ *ln that cesr.’ I said. *1 think I'll aleep on that lounge, and I’ll guarantee that no man gets upstairs unless he goes over my dead body.’ “1 knew two of my men would he along there that.night, and I reckoned they’d take in anything by the way. The first thing I did liefore turning in was to put the money hack In the l»ox. When I'd done that I felt the first of a kind of comfort I’d never experienced before. I didn’t go to sleep, wanting to be awake If any one called. In tlx* middle of the night my two men. Pete Barnlckel and Colorado Bill, did call. I showered bullets everywhere about them except Just where they were, and they concluded there must be a whole vigilance committee Inside. When they bad gone I heard a soft voice call down the stairs: “Thank you.’ “ ‘Just you go to sleep. I’m in com mand here.’ “And I’ve been in command here ever since. I married the girl. I didn't confess till shortly before the wedding and have l»een living here ever since. My wife owned the property, and after I came In her brother’s family went off to a ranch they bought farther west" Notice for Publication Serial tWHUH Department of the Interior. U. H.
