An Ex - Bandit's Haunting Fear. A gentleman who recently returned from Dallas, Texas, says of Frank James, the brother of the dead outlaw, Jesse: , "He is a "flic ted with consumption, and it is onl v a question of time until he - mr i ' . - a , dies, ine scram upon mm must oe something terrible, as lie is ever upon the alert, not knowing at what time nor from what direction trouble may come to him. I heard him say once, in n semi - confidential way, that he trusted no man living. 1 Know tne world is against me and I am always prepared, were his words. "When introduced he invariably places his hands in his pantaloons pockets, and, simply bowing, acknowl edges the introduction by saying: 'I am glad to know you, sir.' "When his hands are shoved into these pockets they grasp two ugly - look - in? guns," continued tbe gentleman. They are always in his tronser's pock ets. His eyes are sma 1 and piercing. Not long ago he went into a big saloon in Dallas, owned by Tom Angus, who has the reputation of being a bad man himself. Tears ago, it was claimed by James, Angus tipped off the James gang to the police. - James bad one of his bad spells that day, and, with his hands in his pockets, he walked up to Angus. Such a scoring I never heard in my life, and all the time Frank James's eyes glittered like a cat as he watched every move of the man." Cincinnati Enquirer.
