How an Insane Miner Terrorized a Nevada Town. BRAINED EVERYBODY HE MET. A Night of Anxiety Which Shattered Fron tier Kerves Honsea Barricaded While Armed Men Hunt the Destroyer Safety Restored In Western Style. In a enimnillllr thrown fonelKn ma tt,n .......... IU.III in Austin, Xev., was in its early history lliailV enisodns. traolrnl nrthn rcirnren vm. bound to occur. One of tho most noted in tho annals of tho young town was the one that was long known and spoken of as tho tragedy of "the man with the ax." In the oc moo, says me nan r rancisco Chron icle, a riartv of flvo men frmu a nnlnicnmii. where in California arrived in Austin and pitched their camp in Cedar ravine, close to tho town. They put up their tent near their wagon and did their rooking at their canipflro in the open air. This gypsy wny of living was rather 'the rule than the cx- oiiiuu in uiisiimt, as lew nan nacl suf ficient time to erer t morn sitlietiinHnl nml comfortable quarters, and at night the ruvinca and hillsides were aglow with the campfires of the emigrant. One man of this party of five had been silent, morose and irritablo for several days, as had been ouscrveu :iy nts companions. They thought "mil n cney expressed it, "a nttio nutty,' but dreamed of no danger nt his hands. After dark ono nicht the differ,. nr. mem. bers of tho party, except tha moody one, Wi rcennaged ulioilt tha i-mnnln i.ren irioCT for the night. Ho sat by the cninpfJre ei- tsni anci gazing into it. One of tho party was bending over it preparing the eve., ing meal when, without warning, the silent ono sprang to his feet and with r frenzied yell seized an ax and sank it into tbo brain aaaX aaj slalemheileM I ! iL i . A raUKIUUC TIJAGEDV. of tho roan engaged In preparing the sup per. Anoiner oi wo party sprang toward him, when he, too, felt the keen edge of the nx in tho hands of the madman, and With nnothorclemnnlnenl tinwl I lie mnrrli... ous maniac vanished into the glcoin of the night. In an instant in and about tho camp nil was horror nnd consternation. Parties from adjacent campfires crowtlod around ro iinu ono man dead and another wound ed and liable to die and tho neriietmtur ol tho crimes, n man bereft of reason, gone nono knew whither, out into the murky nignt, with the weapon of destruction still m nis nanus, adovo and below them ootild be seen the glow of many campfires, about which flitted the forms of men, women and oven of little children, all un suspecting of danger. Thoso must bi warned tit whatever risk. Soon tbo clnt tcr of swift running feet was heard rush ing through tho ravines and up tho hill Sillt S. and Stentorian tones vr.leml t ko warn ing on the still night air: "Look out for tho man with tha ail A nun Hntcn in Cedar ravine has gono crazy and hus m-aincd rwo ol his partners with nn ax ai d has escaned. Xo nnn knows vrhnf. rtl n tlon ho has taken. Look out for tho man with tho ax!'' At the warning men sprang to their weapons, and pale faced women, gathering their frightened chil dren about them, retired to tho recesses of tent wagon or shack, while husbands or fathers stood vigil by tho campflre, for none knew at what instant from out the Plutonian blackness of tho night would rush tho demented demon, leaving death and destruction in his wake. There was an hour or moro of suspense, when a man dashed brcuthless into tho principal saloon withthc news 1 1, at tho man with the nx had gone down tho grade to ward ltccsc river valley, and on his way had killed Johnnie Boulay, tho French gambler, whom be met coming up the grade. It appeared that Johnnie was com ing up the road from Jacobsvilie, where he had bM paying professional visit, all unconscious of danger, and with ono leg thrown over the pommel of his Middle was lightly caroling a chanson of la liclio France and thinking, if thinking at all, of tho appetite provoking cocktail and tho subsequent supper awaiting in the town whoso lights he saw in the distance, when out of tho gloom of the night dashed a grizzly figure. With a maniacal yell tho madman crashed the ax into poor John nie's thigh and disappeared down the road into tho darkness. An artery was severed, and tho Frenchman had just enough of life left to reach tho first house on the out skirts of the town. "Well, thank Cod, wo know at least which way he has gone!" said the brawny livery stable keeper. "Some of us must go after hist And stop his doing further mischief if possible." Soon half a dozen well armed men wera mounted and clattering down the trail, and word was sent to the anxious watchers around tho campfires. In tho gray of tha morning tho pursuers returned dust cover ed and spent They were remarkably taciturn when questioned as to the result of their night ride. The most that could bo got out of them was that the mar. with the ax would trouble them no more. After ward it was whispered that a stock herder, riding across tho sage covered valley of Reese river, ran across a corpse with a lariat around its neck and foil of bullet holes. For many a day thereafter the mothers of Austin bad In the story cf "tho man with an ax" one to cod jure with when they wUbed to keep their children In.
