"Recently at Santa iinrbura, In southern California, I met up with Jack Viewers, who many years ao in the Western country was culled the niun too bud to pack n gun," fnld a New York roamer. "He's u peaceful, iulet spoken old man now. "Jack Vickers always was a quiet spoktn man for that matter. He pot his name because he beat to tin' ground with hands and let Hi a wlioU passed of bad men who attacked him at different times. He had a theory that a man who could think quickly and handle himself quickly and knew a little bit about tho art of actlti? didn't need any shooting tool to pU It on thhe sklltullust gun tighter that ever fanned a .il. "Vickers had been everything about the West and Southwest prospector, miner, freighter, cow gous-r betore I met up with him. He a an editor when I worked for him in Le.uhillo. He was a printer by trade, from Phila delphia, of all towns. lie was rather undersized lint muscular. "During the time 1 was with Vick ers only one of the gunners got after him. Vickers In the paper took a fall out of a braggart named Jeff Hudson. "Vickers had known Hudson in Tombstone and had his record pat. He pread the record on the minutes, too. Hudson was doing a lot of claim Jumping around Leadville and get tin; away with that stuff on his reputation as a pun man. "There were a lot of Eastern chaps In the Leadville rush, and thee were the kind Hudson picked out to Impose i upon. One of these Easterners told j Vickers how Hudson had run him off a fairly staked and duly registered ' claim, and then Vickers got his punc , turlng tools out and began to hand It I to the hard one from Arizona. I "Jack wrote the stuff and set It up , himself. He said that Hudson was an imitation and a bogus; that he'd killed three men in Arizona nnd New- Mexico by shooting them In the back, and that he'd shot one man In Kern county, Cal., while the man slept In ! his bunk; that he really didn't have I the nerve of a fiddle crab, but Just a big way of talking; that lied never earned an honest dollar In his life; ' that Leadville didn't need him a lit Mo bit, and that if the decent folks of Leadville Intended to preserve their ! self-respect and to keep the camp from becoming a hog camp It was up I to them to boot Jeff Hudson over the ! south trail Just as soon as they could I spare the time to do It. And all like ' that. Fighting, gilling stuft, of course. I "When I saw that stuff sltyped bang in the middle of the first pase I figured that that office wasn't goinr. to be very sanitary pretty soon. I was Just out from the East. Moreover. I had met up with Jeff Hudson, and 1 considered him plzen bad. "'You're coins to get killed, Jack,' I said to Vickers the minuate I read i that Jeff Hudson thing. "Vicki'is only laughed drily nnd went on smoking his corncob pipe. "When the story was read and di gested a lot of Leadville's quieter folk dropped in on Vickers and told him that he was taking a needless risk. " 'You don't stand to get any thing by Jumping on Hudson, Jack,' they told him. 'He's In camp to stick. Y'ou can't run him out. More over, he'll kill you as sure as eggs is egirs. Better vamp back to Arizone, eh?' " 'Hudson will do the vamping,' was Vickers' only reply to that. 'I am go ing to run hlni out of ibis camp and I'm not going to be killed. Let It go at that.' "Hudson was In Denver when the tiling came uut, and he didn't get back Into camp until two days later. He heard about the attack on him in the paper as soon as ho lit back. Some barkeep flashed it on hlni. "Hudson had his usual rum parcel with him, and when he read the story he did a teeth grinding specialty that made the barkeep duek under the counter. . Hudson didn't recall Vick ers, hadn't met up with him in Lead ville, and so he didn't know who was back or the wallop. " 'Who is the coyote?' he howled at the barkeep. " 'Little feller a rawed off named Jack Vickers; come here from Tuc son; some quick in handling himself too," explained a bystander. "Hudson started right away for our office. I'd heard that he was in camp, and that's why I happened to decide that there were some new stamp mills 'way on the west edge of the camp that I'd been wanting to In spect for some time. "It was late In the afternoon when Hudson climbed the rickety stairs of the two-story wlckleup where the pa per was got out. Jack Vickers, seat ed at his desk, a pine table, with his right side turned to the one door, was reading over a bunch of the Ready Prints for the next day's issue when Stidson i;tui!:td In without knockim-'. Hudson Initaiitly recognized Vickers. Oh vou're an ediior now, you sand toad are votl?' was Hudson's gleet liir ns he stop ied in the middle t; tho roam with his risht hand on h.. ta-board cun, "So you're the Tuc son mule whr.cklns fMn'inip that writ this thing about me, hey?' "Vickers pretended to look scared almost to death. He placed his pip on the desk with n hand that seemed to shake with a palsy of fear. Then l:e becan to stammer Inconsequential thlr.gs Vlcker3' acting in the ttglr pinches was what helped to get him out of these messes. "None o' that damned whimper ing:' bawled Hudson, taking a few steps closer to where Vickers sat trembling realistically, and at the fame time whipping out his right hand gun. "Vickers burst into wrenching sobs, the sobs of a cornered man with the fear of sudden death upon him. He had figured up the effect that sort of thing would have on Hudson, nnd his dope was correct. "Hudson enjoyed his sobs keenly. The bad man meant to kill Vickers. but he extracted so much enjoyment out of the spectacle afforded by Vick ers' apparent anguish that he was will ing- to protract the misery of the un derslzd man. "Vickers, his face drawn Into nn expression of agony, rocked back and fo; til lu his chair, letting out the dry tearing sobs that seemed to rend hlni apart, while Hudson, his gun In his hand, stood regarding hlni gloatingly. "' Trald o' th' blazin' thunder you're polii' to, hey?' he said croaking to Vickers. 'Curlin' up, hey, at the' thouulit of ' "That's as far ns he got. Forgetful of Vickers' record as a quick thinker and looking upon the small man rock ing back in the chair as prey almost too easy, Hudson kept edging toward Vickers. probably with the idea of slapping him with his open palm or spitting In his face Hudson had a trick of spitting In the faces of tend crfeet before shooting him. "Sut he got too close. Vickers leached out with a cat grab of both hands and grabbed hold of Hudson's right arm between the wrist and the elbow. Jerking the bad man's arm to his mouth, Vickers fixed his teeth in Hudson's wrist and bit clean through the bone and then kept right on gnawing. "The pain of It caused Hudson to relax his hold on the gun which he had In his right hand, and the shoot ing tool dropped Into Vickers' waste paper basket. Hudson was hammering Vickers on the back of the head with his huge left fist to make Jack let go with his teeth. "But the instant Vickers saw the gun drop he reached wtlh his right hand into the basket and picked It out, never letting go his wolf's clutch on Hudson's wrist with his teeth. The gun safely In his right hand, though, he suddenly let go the teeth hold and Jumped to his feet with such force that the top of his head caught Hud son under the extended chin, and as the braggart's tongue was lolling part of the way out of his mouth at that instant he bit his tongue almost In two. "This caused him such agony and stunned him so that Vickers had time to wheel around and face the big one. Then, hauling back to get all the lev erage possible, Vickers banged Hud son over the forehead with the gun. and the power of an entire lifetime of clean living was behind those wal lops with the bad man's gun. "Hudson dazed, only half conations, weut to the floor like a log. Vickers put the gun on the table, pulled the other gun from Hudson's belt and placed that on the table too, and then leaning over he caught hold of Hudson by the two hands and dragged him to the door, which was still open. Hud son wriggled, but he was too far gone to put .up aDy resistance. "Yanking him to a sort of a sitting posture, Vickers gave the bad man a kick and Hudson's huge carcass rolled down the rickety stairs to the landing below, right alongside the pavement. The bumps he got going down sort of rouBed Hudson, and when he reached the bottom he sat up and put his hand to bis mouth. A number of passersby Btopped and looked at Hudson. "The bad one had hardly reached the bottom before Vickers was down stairs, standing alongside of him. '"You were quite right to look me tip, you big bogus string bean," Vick ers said to him, In a calm sort of Judi cial tone while the bunch gathered about to listen.

Elegant Public Vehicles That Tra versa Certain London Streets. Years ago a faorite means of transportation in New York City was the omnibus line on Broadway. It was superseded later by street cars, which at first were drawn by horse3. Later an underground cable was em ployed to haul them, and now for a long time electricity has supplied the necessary power. After the 'bus ser vice on Broadway ceased It was con tinued on another street here Fifth avenue. An omnibus has two advantages, at least, of not more. It can swing from one side of the street to the other, as occasion may require, and even turn off to another street. Tho rail way ear. on the other hand, must stick to tho rails. If there should be an obstruction on the track the cars must come to a standstill until It Is removed. When cars displaced omni buses on Broadway it was predicted that so many blockades would result in what Is really the busiest street In town that people would get tired of the new system and ask for a res toration of the old. The prediction was not fulfilled, because Broadway Is a pretty wide thoroughfare and the pollrenien exerted themselves to keep heavy wagons out of the way of the cars. Besides, the greater capa city of the cars, as compared with the omnibuses, and the higher speed which they developed made the in ex tremely popular and more remunera tive than their predecessors. In several foreign cities, where rath er slow progress has be n made with the Introduction of electric lines, om nibuses still continue in favor. From their tops a fine view of the region through which they run can be had. If a person is a newcomer and wants to learn what lie can about the streets, nnd if, furthermore, he can spare the time, a seat on top of an omnibus will suit him better than anything else. The ordinary omnibus, however, Is a humble not to say nn uncomfortnbli vehicle, and is drawn by horses. But an improvement on the old style Is being tried In certain parts of London. A few 'buses there are being run with gasolene engines, like automobiles. They are elegantly upholstered, too, and have chairs re sembling those of an American Pull man coach. To render tho service more attractive, the driver nnd con ductor wear livery. The fare Is six pence, or 12 cents In American mon ey. This Is less than a person would pay If he hired a cab, but more than Is demanded for a ride in the plainer omnibuses. The "Pullman motor cars," as they are called; run In only a few fevored localities, but are so luxurious as to Invite liberal patron age from those who can afford It. New York Tribune.
