The 26 year old mountain Tar- z a n s - trail of terror ended in a home town bank which he tried to rob Friday after killing four pursuers during a nine-day flight from the law. The fantastic bank robbery attempt also cost the life of a 20 year old teller. Felled by Boy, 17 Durand, who had eluded capture by a posse that grew to more than a hundred determined men, was about to escape in a hail of-bullets when a 17 year old boy fired the shot that felled him. Durand then fired a bullet into his brain with his own six-shooter. So ended a bloody postscript written in the history of the west oy a mountain-wise young man angered by his imprisonment for killing an elk out of season. He ?I°^,, frorn the Cod y J ail March 16, killed two officers who sought to apprehend him, killed two more men when a posse tried to trap him in northwestern Wyoming's mountains, and then came back into towzi io rob a bank Tipton Cox, the 17 year old school boy, said he felt "pretty sick when he viewed his victim.

The letter challenged the sheriff to have my head mounted and hang it up in the courthouse." The wily fugitive knew, he wrote that he was "done tor." ' An awed calm returned to Powell Saturday.
