REFORMED BANDIT NOW TAKES TUCK ETS ON A THEATRE DOOR. ^ His Eyes H»vc the Same Hard, Cold G but They are Only V«d to Throw a S. Into Deadheads-Odd Ambition of Ex-Train Robber. £ If you should happen to be in *l Louis some night during the theatric* season, and should drop into tfi. Standard Theater at Seventh and Wai nut streets you would see a tall, uao rather elderly man standing at th.( door. You will find him clad in sobei black, with a large Mack slouch hat creased in the middle and pullled dowi slightly to shade the left side of hii face which is thin almost to emacia tion. His nose is long and sharp, hii chin protruding, his lips thin an« bloodless, closing tightly over mi teeth. A slight, drooping, grayish mustache does not serve to conceal then firmness. Above all, his eyes will attract your attention. They are smal and set close together. Their color 11 a light bluish gray. Over them ther< seems to float a film which render! them opaque at times, and yet if Hi with friends. looks at you sharply there Rill com* a hard cold glint into them that will: tell you their owner is a safe customei to be let alone when he is roused. Still when the lips break into a smile thesi same eyes can twinkle and dance witt a merriment that is magnetic. Thej say in Missouri that this eye is typica, of men whose proudest and most truthful boast is that they have nerve, bu< no nerves. This man is Frank James, brothei of Jesse, train robber and outlaw gen- erailly. says a correspondent of ta< New York Sun. He is doorkeeper, ano has been for three seasons past Colonel James J. Butler, politician anc! son of the Democratic boss of the town. Colonel Ed Butler, put him in this place. People flocked to the theater at first Just to see the old outlaw, but the story became an old one by and by, and none but strangers in the city took any particular notice ol the doortender. He comes and goes to bis work as regularly and as soberly as any man could, and holds his head high. He has two ambitions. One is that he may some day be made a police commissioner, and the other that he may be chief of police. One day he was standing in the theater lobby talking with some of his friends about the appointment of a new chief of police. "How would I do for that place?, he asked with a smile. No one knew exactly what to answer. There was an embarrassing pause, and then the old outlaw drew him elf up and let that hard glint into hi- eyes. "For twenty years," he said, ' I defied them all to catch me, and I suess I could do a little catching my-.elf if I tried." Still there are other times when James seems to r< alize the forbidding handicap under w ich he labors. The newspapers of St. '-.ouis are continually referring to h' n as the ex-bandit and ex-train robbe , and it angers him terribly. "Why can't they leave me alone? he cried out one day, after reading one of these references. "For twelve years I've been trying to do the right tains. I've been working r-s hard and as honestly as any man ?,;ive to earn an honest living, and they won't let me alone. They won't give me a chance. But I'll tell "you this"—and as he uttered the words he took off his hat and raised his right hand—"before God I never did an act in my life that I was ashamed of, and I never stole a cent. They tried to hang me on perjured testimony, but, they couldn't do it." Colonel James believes in "personal liberty." It was this sentiment that drove him under the black flag with Quantrell in his terrible border warfare, at which Mi; -,ourians still shudder in memory. It was this sentiment that made him a hunted outlaw for twenty years. Although poor, James is proud. He is also modest, and refuses to take advantage in a mon. _ary way of his unwelcome notorietj. Two years ago, after Steve Brodie had made his success on the stage, an effort was made to get James to follow suit, but he steadfastly refused Tom Miaco, a variety manager, m. de him an off-r to star in a melodrama to be wn ten ITCHING DISEASES Thos.
