1 -member one instance , however , in
which u visible snug sent a good sldo-
wlicol boat to the bottom ono of the
clearest , brightest nights that overhung
hung over the rlvor. It was in I860 , or ,
perhaps , a year later. The boat was the
Martha 'Mitchell , a trump from the
lower waters , running from Cincinnati
to New Orleans. She was making u
trip to St. Joseph with provisions for
the plains , mostly bacon , and bacon , lot
mo tell you , was n necessity in the west
then. The passenger list of the Mitch-
oil was heavy , so Unit many of the trav
elers were forced to remain on deck. It
was 12 o'clock on n moonlight night in
August. The captain hud gene to bed
fora wonder and only a sleepy watch
man who nut astern represented the ox-
ccutivo among these awake on deck. A
* do/on passengers were seated about the
big boll forward , tolling stories while
they reveled in the bounties of thonight
The moon was shining with a clear ,
white light that made everything for
100 yas da ahead as plainly visible as at
noonday. There was no nolso aavo the
dull throb , throb , throb of the engines ,
the gcntlo putT of the released steam ,
nno Iho breaking of the water on tha
wheel's paddles.
Suddenly .Tack Caruthors , a young
follow from St. Louis , gazed forward in
the course of the boat , and pointing to a
email , black object just discernible in
the distance , naked :
"What's that thing , boysV"
"A log , probably , " returned an old-
timer. "They're always floating about. "
"But I've boon watching it , " Curuth-
era wont on , "and she hasn't moved
much. "
Tho.ontiro party lookednt the black
object in tlio distance. It grow plainnt *
as the butit climbed the strcum , but not
as if it were lloating down on the cur
rent the approach was too slow.
' 'Son thorol" Carulhors exclaimed.
"It's swingitfg from side do sldo. "
"Funny , ' said the old-timer , "but
if she's a anng the pilot'll got around it
all right. "
By this time all of the deck passcn-
pors were looking at the black object ; .
Tlio boat did not change its course.
There was no more comment all eyes
were riveted on the dark spot In the
river. When the bout was within forty
fcot of it the old-timer sprang up and
placing his hands in trumpet fashion'
about his mouth called back tn the pilot :
"Hello , up there. "
There was no reply , and the nose of
the big bout continued straight at the
"Hollo ! " chorused the party.
"Well , what IB it ? " cotno a , gruff an-
"Throw her hard to larboard" ' the
old timer said ; "there's tv big snag
twenty feet in front. "
Thotowa&n clanging of bolls below
decks , and the pussonzcrs in their berths
felt the boat li rch violently as the ma
chinery was reversed and the steamer
unsworod her rudder. But it was too
Into , In thirty seconds there was an
other jar , greater than the first. The
Martha's nose seemed to climb into the
nir. An effort was made to back the
boat , but It would not budgo. Then the
passengers became panic-stricken , run
ning about in their night garments and
threatening to jump overboard. The
clear-headed captain was on hand in a
moment , however , and before the old
Btonmur huu settled a foot every passen
ger was started for the shore.
" } In the morning wo watched the cabin
of the Martha float elf while wo stood on
the great blulTs just above Kochoport.
Then the hull sank out of sight.
The owners of the Murthudld not save
their bacon. The sleepy pilot saved his
by escaping through the woods. Wo
only wondered that ho did not run us
nslioro before the accident , but the cup-
tnin said thut ho know the river so well
thoto that his work was mechanical.
Llnorty Landing Is the jiuino of u
Email place touched by the Wnbush rail
road and the Mibsouri river. Before the
riulroud.e imn it was the place at which
boats stopped to send goods ever the hill
to the town of Liberty , in Clny county ,
the old homo of the James boys. Of
course the landing never amounted to
\ory much those placet ) never did ,
lioing only depots for larger towns somewhere -
where Imcic from the river , from which
they got thulr mimed. There- was but
ono" exception to this rule Wostport
LnnUing. The town of Wostport was
five miles back in Jackson county , and
it had the start of the landing , but before -
fore long the tide turned. In n few
youra Wcstport Landing was changed
to Kansus City. But I must not forgot
Liberty nnd the landing. Our boat
reached the landing one beautiful Juno
morning just after sunrise , and there
was n larger crowd to greet us than
Among the visitors who came on board
was u pretty girl of 20 , nil spick and
Bpin : in a new calico of modest design ,
while her Hwcqt face peeped out coyly
frinn the great , old-fashioned bonnet
that enveloped It.
She smiled. There WHS an Instant
rush of all the young follows on board
the boat to ehow her through the
Btoumor. Sylvester Cobb of LouUvlllo ,
n wealthy youth of a wealthier father ,
u planter , was the first to reach her side.
"Lot me have the pleasure of showing
vou ever the steamer , " ho suid , raising
his h t with much ceremony.
"I don't euro. " said the inuld simply ;
"I bullevo I'd like to sou howsho looks , "
So they went on the upper deckwhoro
& good viinv of thu river w.ia obtained ,
then into the olllcers' quarters of "tho
Tox.is , " aa ttto llttloooop under the nilot
house IH callud , they wont ; then into the
pilot house Itself , where the youngKcu-
luckian explained the working * of the
big wheel. Tlmy rumbled about for
nioro than an hour , examining iho en
gines , the furnaces under the long boil-
em unidshlpj , the long "social hall , " or
aloon. with Itn litllo doors opening into
atntotooms ; the nluno was looked upon
wondufliufly hy tlio Clay county maid
and tha bull rang1 , warning visitors to
go u horc.

young Cobb , im ho helped the girl along

"And when I come back next month
I'll likely bo on another bo'at. I'd llko
to showyou ever her , too.'r
"I'd llko It , " shi ) flald. "but I reckon
we'll have toglvo it up. "
"Glvo it upl" Cobb was tntorested.
"How's thutV I'd bo delighted , I'm
sure. "
' Oh , I cnn't toll , " she said , with
something of a coyness In her sin Ilo.
The second boll was ringing.
"Well , good-by , Miss ah , or good-
by. " Ho extended his hand and she
took it.
"Yes , I'd llko to look ever the next
boat with you , but " and she glanced
under her lashes up the hill to a little
crowd that stood there "only to tell
the truth , I'm going to bo married next
month. "
"Oh ! " exclaimed Cobb , "and I can't
bo horo. Can't you put it oil ? " ho
"Not now , I reckon , " the girl an-
Bworud , holding his hand nnd glancing
up the hill again , "but but you can
s'luto the bride now , if you want to. "
The miito had given the order to hoist
the gangphmu , nnd already the ropes
were creaking , while the Dig stern
wheel of the boat bo an to turn slowly.
Cobb know that overbody on board was
look-ine at him , nnd ho know , too , that
the lucky swain must bo In the crowd on
the hillside. But ho saluted the bride.
It was a rousing kiss. As ho stooped to
imprint it , u young follow dashed out ot
ono of the little groups ahead and
bounded toward him.
"Drop 'or ' ! " ho shouted.
But Cobb was away llko the wind , and
ai ho aiming on the stage it swung down
eo as to * almost throw htm in the water.
The young man shook his fist angrily.
"Don't , " pleaded the girl , laughing.
"Didn't you know I was only foolln' all
the tlmo. "
"But ho kissed youl" yelled the stnl
wart young man.
"Oh , John , " two laughed , "ho was
only sulutin' the bride. "
And the laugh that rang out from
deck and shore was 'echoed time and
again from the hills of old Clay.
"Seo that trco there. " said Billy Al-
ford , the engineer , as wo neared Wolf
Island. "Yes ? Well , Hint's where wo

Evoryb'odv who took a trip on the
Missouri a do/.en or twenty yours ago
romombsrs Captain Duvo Silver , ono of
the handsomest men that ever guided
the destinies of those old-timers. Cap
tain Silver is still alive ho is some
where in the south , I think. Butwhoro-
ever ho is , ho Is still the courtly , stately
figure that used to stand forward and
bow to the Diissongrors leaving the boat
at JolTorson City , St. Joe , Omaha , or
Kansas City Wostport Landing it was
then. They all know young , handsome
D.IVO Silver thuy all liked to ride on
his boat. It was the Lucas , I think , ono
of the fastest that ever rode the river.
She were the champion's door horns on
the pilot house for years.
It was hard on Captain Silver for all
of the lloating palaces to pnsa nut of the
t Ivor forever , but ho hud another mis
fortune. Ho had a brother. How ho
loved him ! They were inseparable. Ono
day they were standing near the rail of
a big bout just as ( she wis pushing olT.
The brother leaned forward a bit , the
rail broke , nnd before Captain Duvo
could catch him the man had fallen into
the water. The boat swung around at
thut instant and poor Silver wus drugged
under the wheel ,
"It's Joel''gasped Cuptuin Dave. That
wus nil ho flald. Ho hud soon his
brother go under the vicious paddles ,
and ho fell into a partial faint. Thut
wus ono of the reusons that this tall ,
handsome man , with the elegant manner - ,
nor and gray hair and board , loft tha
Missouri for thu low banked streams of
the far south.
On the giiutct Tr.ill.
CMcaaa Inter Uctan ,
Danny Redmond was the mall
carrier on the Sunset Trail , and
ho full } ' roali/.od the importance
of his position. Tronic might
stagnate , civilization might pall , but the
United States mail must go right ahead ,
and on schedule time ut that. As for
the Sunset Trail.it wound its way far
ever the dreary plains of Kansas , across
the Cimtnnrron , and on nnd on into the
great state of the Lone Star.
aBut Danny "H route only extended to
Crooked Crook , a town consisting of u
grocery store. At this time tha popu
lation of Ford county could have boon
ousily corralled on u quarter section nnd
had comfortable standing roam nt thut
Danny was an iipoitlo to those lone settlers
tlors , and only ono who had experienced
the tippalllnff loneliness of existence In
these thinly peopled plains , where you
can POO your next-door neighbor's dhan-
tyon clour days only , can realize the
joy with which they heralded this blue-
eyed , brown-haired bunch of turbulence.
"Two o'clock , " would comment some
unkempt denizen , consulting the sun.
"Dunny'll bo hero In ton mlnutos. "
Then they would look till their oycs
nohod ufur to where the Sunset Trull
tipped ever the roll of prulrlo at the
horizon. Soon tholr wutohlnsr would bo
rewarded , und steadily uud swiftly would
the bay mare Dolly hour her rider down
the trull in thut swinging , indefatigable
gallop of the mustang.
Perchance some settler coming into
the postolllco would jog in the path that
Danny chose.
"Git out o' the way of the United
States nmill" would como the warning ,
nnd ho would prudently "git" to the
other sldo of the road , for Danny could
und would shoot , nnd , besides , didn't ho
have every ono of those follows down at
the olllco to stand nt hla back to the last
shot ? So no matter how much of a ilro-
enter the old obatruetor m'ght ' bo hu i
switched off when the carrier domtmdcd '
right of way. .
And that was often. For that lad had
the idea inculcated Into his being that
all ether powers , torrostlal mid celestial ,
were secondary considerations when the
United States mall was concerned , and
ho seized ovorjr opportunity to exorcise
his authority.
How longingly and expectantly thoao
ongor pioneers would watch the loiters
dlstrlbutodl Thouph , perhaps , they
had no grounds for expecting a letter ,
yet tholr hope did not sink until the last
ono was put away.
Then the return mail would bo made
up , and nt the oxnct mlnuto Danny
would vault into the largo Mexican saddle
dlo almost as largo ns ho or Dolly and
with the nil-potent mall securely
strapped to the clrdlos on oa.ch side , ho
would rccomtnonco his long rldo , never
stopping na'ho tried n shot nt some unwieldy -
wieldy rattlesnake that had dragged its
mottled form out on the trail to loll in
the sunwho would not bo able to wlpglo
into the tall grass ere the United States
mall was upon him. Along the route
the settlers would cotno out ot tholr
shanties half bent , und wave their som
breros nnd cheer the buoyant rider.
Wubash was the only stop. It was of
the sumo importance an Crooked Crook ,
onlythore vvero two houses instead of
ono , or , rnthor. a double house ; for the
owners of the claims that joined uo there
occupied a shanty of two compartments ,
ono on ouch claim. Somehow or ether
the scamp would sit struightor in tbo
saddle nnd pull Dolly's houd up higher
when they approached Wnbash , nnd n
pretty little pouch of a girl would como
out and chat with the currier while her
spectacled father's attention was rlvotcd
on the letter packages. Dolly would
probably think that Danny was getting
rather weighty on ono sldo as ho bent
low In the saddle , dangerously close to
that pink sun bonnet. Ana the scolllng
pophor thut sat up conveniently close to
his burrow would wonder for what reason
n follow would want to olto a pretty girl
like hor. But Koslo didn't sonm to mind
the punishment a bit. Ah , I feur Dunny
would feign have lingered longer nt the
unprepossessing post of Wubash , but
the United a tales mail must bo carried
on ,
Nitrht would fall ere ho crossed the
dark" Clmmarroji , nnd on nuspicious
nights the moon was well up in the sky
when ho rode , with n whoop and halloo
that stilled the howling of the coyotes ,
into Fort Dodge the journey done ,
Ono day a cowboy came into the fort
with n jaded mustnng and a slosh across
his cheek und reported that ho hud boon
chased by n bund of Arupuhocs , These
children of nature had grown insolent
with well feeding nnd little work. They
of ten became thus at irregular intervals ,
and , breaking from the reservation ,
swept north upon the scattered settlers
of the plains , considerably depopulating
these sparsolv inhabited districts. Their
great father in Washington , they com-
pluinod , was not giving them enough
blankets , and in consequence they were
compelled to trade their moccasins for
"firo water. ' '
Then a wild flight would commence
for the fort and larger towns for protec
tion. The heathen would rage about
with fire and sword. Occasionally some
wandering cowboy in search of mave
ricks would share the fate of the sottlors.
Then the great father in Washington
would order out his bluo-coatod disci-
plitiors and poor Lo would start back to
his reservation with becoming humility.
Then a delegation would go to the grout
father with a spurt of oratory about the
treading of his people into the earth by
the foot of the paleface.
Danny was preparing to sturt upon his
route when the news cumn.
"You oughtn't to go. Dan , " they said ,
"for they'll strike right up the Clmmur-
ron like they allays doand , moro'n likely
full tilloul of you. If you do your sculp'll
dunglo from some red nigger's bolt before
fore mornun" . "
"I'm not skoort , " replied ho , settling
himself in the suddlo , "and besides the
folks at Wubush and at the Crick ought
to bo warned. And you know the mull
ought to go as long ns it's anyways pos
sible. "
The spur touched Dolly's flank moro
often than usual , but she kept up
bravely , and Dunny clattered into Wa-
b.tsh ahead of tlmo. Impartincr the
alarming intellieonco to old man Beck ,
the postmaster , und cautioning him to
got I ho family ready and start for the
post without further delay , ho rode on
toward Crooked Crook.
"Jowhlllukors ! " exclaimed ono of the
watchers. "What's Danny ridin' so all-
fired fast about ? Must bosuthin' up.1'
They soon know , and scattered for
their itMfectlvo claims to prepare for
flight 6o < ho storm burst
Danny cinched the suddlo tighter and
looked to his weapons ere ho mounted
for the homo ride. Ho was not afraid.
Had ho been a coward ho would havoro-
malncd safely at the fort But nn omin
ous dread foil upon him ns ho thought
of the dark Cimmarron. Ho arrived nt
Wubash and looked in at the open door
of the Bock and Larton households.
Everything was topsy-turvy as loft in
the hurry of departure.
"Well Rosio is sufo " ho
, anyway , con
fided to Dolly with n sigh.
Their flying shadows grow longer and
lonpor , and finally nltrht dropped on the
plains. Before him loomed the Clminar-
ron. Ho could see the misty vapor roll-
inir up llko smoke.
"If they're anywhere they'll bo down
there " ho mused. ' '
, 'They'll want to lay
along the trail and catch some of the
settlers making for Dodge. Wonder if
I hadn't bettor cross further down ? "
It was u good idou , and ho turned
Dolly from the trail nnd directed his
course further down the rivor.
The reins changed from right to loft
as he ontcrod the mist , und hia right
fell upon the protruding butt of n re
volver in hla bolt. A twig cracked under

"Ylp-.vlp-ylp ! " It was the war cry o (

was on. With a yell df dofiitnco ho llrod
at the dark mass touring- after him , and
bonding low ever the smldlo horn spoke
encouragingly to the horso.
"Dolly , If you ever run , do It now.
You'ro faster than any of them. Dolly ,

Ana ho clung to the saddle horn and
gave the mustang free rein.
Uorso seiiso. Wo hoar It alluded to
In a jocular way. Did Dolly roali/o that
in her Hoot foot lay her muster's only
salvation ? I think so ; you may not.
But she ran like a frightened antblopo ,
hardly Booming to touch the ground ,
while Danny , with closed eyes iintl
clenched teeth clung to the saddle horn
with the desperation of death.
"Haiti Who cornea thoroi" ! challenged
th .guard , as a horse and rider came
into tSo fort. ,
"Tho United States mail , " came the
faint roplj\ and Dolly galloped up with
blood in her nostrils and blood on hot'
Hanks , quivering like an aspen.
"Dan , are you hurt ? " nuoried the soldier -
dior , lifting him from the saddle ,
"I'm hit dead , " ho replied , with n ,
moan , They carried him into the bar
rack room , mill the surgeon was sum
moned , but there was no hope , ho said.
It was ti wonder ho hud lived as long as
ho had. Soon the news spread to the
camp and the rough soldiers and fugi
tive settlers gathered around him ,
watching with breathless interest for
the end to come. A girl came pushing
her way through the crowd , wringing
her hands in agony. She bent down
and took the suil'oror's hand.
"Rosic , " said ' ho with a pained smile ,
"I'm a goner , I'guess. Good by , Hosio ,
