Those were tbe dsys wfeea every ma a carried a gun in lieu of a buttonhole bouquet, and gave a bullet ia place of 'a good morning.' I was sent there by the Continental Cattle Company of Illinois to do what I could toward breaking np a gang of desperadoes snd cattle rustlers known ss tbe CIsnto gang. My wife and I drove from 1'ecos Station. Texas, to Arisona In a wagon, and went direct to Springerville, which was tbe gang's headquarters. headquarters. They were a tough set, who would rather shoot s man than stop to argue a question indeed, it wss customary in those daya to 'have a mil for breakfast breakfast sbout six times a week. "Their system of operating was to steal from the stock people, who were mostly Mormons, and then run rbe cattle down into Mexico, where they would be disposed disposed of. l got in witn tne gang wiioout tneir knowing wbo I waa. and assisted in all their work, keeping in touch all the time with the proper su-thorities, su-thorities, su-thorities, but tbey finally got auspicious and laid plans to do me up.

Of course I told them I was not, and tbey came to tbe conclusion that they had been a little hasty. 1CBT HIS CRAMCB. "All this time I wss forming my plans to kill or capture tbe whole outfit, snd sn opportunity to partly tarry out my plan came when a tenderfoot from tbe states came into that part of the country and bought op 200,000 head of cattle and started a ranch. rae leaders of tne Hanton gang applied to tbe tenderfoot for positions with bn outfit to look after tbe cattle, but he rnsed to nave anvnung to do with them. Ods day tbey sent him a note, ssking him to csll st tbeir ranch, snd when be arrived they deliberately shot tbe msn desd The ganr fled to tbe mountains, and wanted me to go along, too, but I excused myself bv saying I waa going 'hunting.' I meant it. too, for I jumped on my horse and rode to the county seat, where I talked up my plans to the Sheriff. He wanted to send out a posse, but I said I could do better alone. I did. how ever, take one deputy deputy along. I had been over the trail, of course, snd also knew every - member or the rang by sight. "e rode post baste to wiieox. ana were told there that the gang bad fled to Mexico. I knew this was untrue, and on the way back to Holomooville I learned that they were biding in the bills near there. I went to the Bberiff of the town and notified him that the gang were there, and to arrest any of them wbo came to town. "While I was ssddling my horse in the corral the hostler told me be hsd seen one of the Clan ton boys in town that very morning at the Sheriff's office, getting some checks cssbed. I also learned that rbe Bberiff himself was as tough a nut aa any of tbe Clan tons, snd wss told tbat be wanted me done up. and tnat severs l of his own deputies were cattle thieves and murderers of the toughest type. "Miller snd I saddled un and rode across tbe Oils River and lay in the hills sll day. Tbe next morning we struck the camp of cowboy named rec-Lec rec-Lec rec-Lec W llson. snd here we stopped to get breakfast. As we were kindling a fire we heard the clatter of horse's hoofs along the trail, and glanc ing up we saw 'Ike Clanton approaching Miller straightened up and Clanton ssw snd recognised him immediately. He wheeled his horse sad unslung his Winchester, Winchester, starting to ride around us. I rrabbed my rifle and covered him, shoot -ng -ng at the same time to hold np bis hands and to halt. MiUer yelled: 'Shoot the !' Clanton refused to halt and I fired at him. hitting him under the arm. He reeled in tbe saddle, and I gave him another, which struck the castle of the ssddle and went through his body. He dropped, and when we ran np we found him as dead as a mackerel. One of the gang had been wiped out, and one of its ! worst members OOT HIS BOOTS. "Tying the body on his horse, we con tinued on our way and soon met three cow boys, who helped us bury Clantoa s body. As vre were about to place tbe body in the grave I happened to think that Clanton had on tr told me that if I waa present whenever whenever he turned up his toes' to be sure nnd prill off bis boots before he waa buried as nis people hsd often declared that be would be buried with hia boots on. and he wished to show that they were mistaken. I pulled off his footgear, high ton boots tbat cost Clanton alar and were Inlaid with rnrver stars and bsd a fine pair of silver spurs st tbe heels, and put them on my own feet. V ben I got back to epnagerruie a man wbo waa a friend of Clanton saw me and recognised the boots and asked me where I got them. I told him a batehed-up batehed-up batehed-up yarn, bnt he refused to believe It. snd we came near having a fight over the matter. Clanton wss aa sit-round sit-round sit-round bad man, and had a record af 19 kills to his credit. I saw him kill two men myself, inst for the mere fun of the thing,- thing,- be called It. "KDrinrernile and KetomonrUle were at that time the two toughest towns in the l uited State without exception. After the Clanton gang were indicted I waa arrested for the shooting of Ike Clanton. and while on my way to the fort told tbe officer who had charge of me thst his deputies were all horse thieves and all-round all-round all-round deapera-doea. deapera-doea. deapera-doea. I was released after six days' con finement, and went to Solomouville. where I met oae of these deputies, who asked me if I had told the Sheriff, that his deoa- deoa- ties were deeper does. I said I had done nothing of the kind. I had to be more than once te Bare my bfe. "While at breakfast this Sheriff who bad taken me to the fort happened to ride into town, ana tne ueputy went to him with my denial of bia story. He came tearing over to the restaurant aad naked if I hadn't told him that hia Deputies were an di awradots.

Then they held me while the Sheriff tnrned the tables, and betabored me to hia hearts contentjafter which they let me go and fare me mi to nay a aew gun, remarking remarking that I would betanr ha careful what 1 said la the future.

Southampton ru I Cor. N. T TIB. A clergyman of Aquebogne presented a curious appeal to hia congregation a Sunday Sunday or two ago. It was in the form of a letter sent him from Washington, asking information concerning an old tombstone. Tbe stone is wsnted for s date upon it, which will form a much-desired much-desired much-desired link ia a renealorieal chain. Thia part of Long Island la accustomed to the genealogist and all nis vagaries, so ! many people trace their ancestors back to the early days or tne island tnat tne re are constant requests for information concerning concerning the old settlers. The present inhabitants inhabitants are also most of them interested in the cultivation of genealogical frees, and tbe most csrefully read columns in tbe local papers are those relating to genealogy. genealogy. The letter, which was seat to the clergyman clergyman as an old resident of tbe part of the country where tbe tombstone was placed over tbe body of one of the early inhabitants, a man named Beale. This msn died msny yesrs sgo. on s date which the tombstone alone can tell, of smallpox, and was buried, according to tbe custom of tbe time, in the orchard of tbe farm. The stone was laid flat npoo the grave. When, a good many years after, strangers bought tbe lsnd, they st sited to put up a bouse, aad the stone was incorporated in it. Tbere wss a place in ihe chimney into which the tombstone would exactly fit, and the builders, having no sentiment concerning concerning it. used it. That was tbe rnd of tbe second chapter of tbe tombstone. The house with the tombstone in the chimney was burned after a time, and the ruins, with the old stone, were left until soother family came to put up another house. When this one was finished it lacked a doorstep, and tbe old stone was sgsin just the size for the purpose required, snd was put into place, and performed its third service. But from tha time the history is lost, snd tbe Washington people would like to learn something of it. Knowing the general interest of bis congregation congregation in genealogy, and as one of tbe effective methods of obtaining information concerning the stone, the Aquehogue clergyman clergyman presented the subject to nis congregation. congregation.
