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

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,
" 'Hudson will do the vamping,' was
Vickers' only reply to that. 'I am go

I'm not going to be killed. Let It go
"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

on the desk with n hand that seemed
to shake with a palsy of fear. Then

out of these messes.

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

"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

to Vickers. 'Curlin' up, hey, at the'

"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
"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
"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.

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
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.
