A TEAR. Al.sUwmU4.UOAU
A C3rrepondont, writing from Tucson,
Ariionn, to tho Pittsburgh Telegraph, tells
tho following interesting story of frontier
"There cnmes'Mountain Joo'on bis pony,"
s.ild my friend, Col. Fleiinco Fitz Roy, to
day, ns wo were seated in tho ahido of a
spreading mulberry, in tho Grand Plaza.
The person referred to waia liandsotno-look
ing young young man of perhaps thirty-five
bometlilnc nbovo tho medium height, of
giaceTul carriage nnd ngile appearance. He
was nrmed with n bnlf-carbine, bnlf-navy
revolver, tlint hung in a belt by his left side,
and wa clad in a belt by his left side, and
was clad in a buckskin suit.
"Mountnin Joe,' as you call him, colonel,
seems to be rather a fine specimen of the
frontiersman, but I don t seo anything re'
markablo about his pony, to which you par
"Thereby hangs a tale, which I will un
fold if you feel like listening to it."
"Go on j tell it by all means."
'"Mountain Joe,' as he is called, was born
somewhere in tho Eastern States, and in
fatuated with the Indian stories he had read
ran away from his parents and came to the
Southwest. But he has had some hard
knocks since, and the hardest were received
in earning that pony,nr rather the worth of it.
You see, a few years ago old Senor Romuldo,
whose ranch lies out along the road, owned
hat pony and one of the loveliest daughters
in all these parts. He was immensely
wealthy and owned several valuable mines,
and there was no telling how much gold and
silver bullion be bad stored away.
'Now, all the young fellows around here
wero craiy after the girl Inw;,but Joe set his
heart on the pony, and wanted to buy it.
He is a fellow who always has his own way,
and it is a blessed good thing that his head
is always right, otherwise somebody would
get into trouble. But when Joe tried to buy
tho pony everybody thought ho was balked
'The Senor asked JC5 for it, and Joe dug
around to raise the money. He raised it,
all except $5, and wanted Romuldo to trust
him for the rest of it till be would come
back'from a hunting expedition. This the
old Spanish curmudgeon refused to do, and
Joe vainly appealed to his friends to loan
him the other V. Failing he got mad and
swore that he would, not livo in such a com
munity. One day he left and was not beard
from for nearly a year,
"In tho meantime a band of Kickapoo
Indians Bivooped down upon Romuldo's
ranche, during his absence in town, ran off
his stook and carried the pretty Inez away
into their mountain fastnesses. Several
parties went out in search ol tho captive,
only to bs ambushed and whipped. Then it
was that Senor Romuldo began to bewail
the ab-cnte of 'Moil"" - Joe," for every
body had laitb that he could liava rcued
the lovely Inez from the dreadful fate m
store for her. '
"Finally, just as tho unhappy Spaniard
was giving up in despair, Joe suddeuly put
iu appearance. 'If you will recover my
child,' said.Romuldo, 'I will give you a half
million dollars. You may have half my
property, and whatever else you may ask,'
"The jerked meat on his person satisfied
the cravings of his appetite, and he found
plenty of puro water to drink. At last he
gave up, and gave up to die. Listening in
tently be heard what seemed like human
voices, and this once more rave him heart.
Crawling in the direction from which the
sounds came, he at length reached a point
from which he was ablo to look into a vast
rotunda, fitted up in barbaric splendor, and
lighted with pine knots and sputtering
lamps, and there, reclining on a couch of
bear skins, Ito beheld Inez Romuldo talking
with an old Indian squaw, who apparently
was her jailer.
"At length tlio oltl ling withdrew In an
opposite directionand Joe speedily made
his presence known to the fair captive. A
hurried consultation followed, and tho whole
situation was taken in.
"Inez explained that sho was held a prison
er by the chief of tho tribo, Red Etgle, who
was a half-blood,hU father being a Spaniard.
The entrance to the cave was narrow, well
concealed, and its existence known only to
a few of the Indians. They still swarmed
In the mountains, but in two weeks wen ao-
ing south for a raid upon the settlements,
and only a small guard were to bo left iu
"All thisInez hurriedly explained to Joe,
and it was agreed that he was to lie conceal

auout ouu rarinuges anu auout leu puuuus
of jerked meat in his clothes,and taking the
trail of the Kickapoos, set out in tho early
morning. He followed it all day cautiously,
and by night was far up the mountains.
Tho next day, near noon, as ho reached the
brow of an immense precipice, tho red-skins
opened on liiin In the rear.
"He was completely trapped. All means
of retreat were cut off, and there was death
both before aud behind him. But Joe made
up his mind to die game. Dodging behind
a rock, he opened with his shooting-iron and
made it lively for the ambushers. Every
shot told, and Boon a dozen dead Indians were
stretched out on the mountain top but their
comrades were undaunted, and nearly a hun
dred ol them made a dash to seize him. He
had already killed tweuty-Blx of them, but
he saw that he must Boon be overpower
"Fight was impossible, and preferlng to
kill himself rather than be tortured by the
Indians, ho rushed to the precipice, fully 2,'
000 feet high, and leaped into space.
"But during his fearful descent he did not
lose his presence of mind. He was going
down near the face of the rocks, and observed
that stunted pines and hemlocks grew Out of
the frequent crevices. He began grasping
in the tops of them, which first bent and
then broke, but he found that be was break
ing she force of hU fall. For the last 300
feet the bushes were thick, and. Joe was soon
going down, dropping from one to the other
in perfect safety,
"At last he reached the bottom, suffering
from a few bruises ant several rather serious
wounds received in the contest with the
Inalans overheard. Just as ho was con
gratulating himself upon his wonderful es
cape another pack of red deyils broke the
chapral and opened fire. Another hand-to-
hand contest took placo and Joe killed nlue
of his enemies. He then started to run along
the base of the cliff, when on a sudden the
earth gave way under him and he fell Into a
deep fissure. The Indians were immediately
upon him, and fired two or three volleys
down the hole and then covered it up with
"Joe had fallen twenty feet, aud realizing
the danger from shots from above, got un
der the shelving of the rock and thus avoid'
ed the balls, The Indians, supposing him
dead, made no further investigations. Re
alizing his desperate situation, Joe set about
extracating himself, and found that he was
in a vast cave with a large number of rami
fications. In the midst of pitchy darkness
he began bis exploration, which continued
four or five days, but which to him teemed

sho should have whatever she called for. Af
ter three weeks of weary waiting Inez learn
ed from the old woman that Red Eagle and
braves, had gone, that four had been left to
guard her night and day, iney took up
their places in tho far corner of the great
hall, and Joo waited impatiently until they
should go to sleep. Day and night were the
same in tho cave, but finally the braves
stretched themselves out one after another
to sleep. That sleep was their last, for four
shots from Joe's revolving carbine fired in
rapid succession killed them all before cith
er was aware of his danger.
'The old woman was forced to guide them
to the entrance of the cave, which was found
after many windings, and Inez and Joe
emerged from their (living tomb just after
sunrise. Joe then saw that he had passed
entirely through the mountain
"Romulo and his friends had long given
them both up for dead, and their feelings
may be better imagined than described when
they returned safe and sound after their mir
aculous adventures. Ever since then Joe
has ridden that pony and has been pefectly
"But you don't'mean to tell me colonel,
that Joe got no other reward than that mis
erable little piece of horseflesh. He married
Inez, of course."
''That's the way story writers would fix
things," said the colonel, "but they never
deal in facts as I have done. The Senor
was as good as his word, and got the survey
or to divide the ranch into two equal parts,
and showed Joe about fifteen cart loads of
gold and silver bullion as his share,
" 'No, sir,' said Joe, 'I want none of these,
I want that sorrel pony. Hero are the $60,
and I want to know If you will trust me for
ihe other ?5.'
" 1 11 give you the pony and anything
cUc you want,' said the Ssuor, You deserve
anything ou will ask for.'
But with all that the Senor could say or
do, Joo made him take the $G0 and let him
have the pony with $5 due on it."
"Well, that this is the most unnatural end
to a wonderfully romantic story 1 ever
heard. Col. Fitz Roy, there is something
wrong with tho sentiment and civilization of
'Now.don't deceive yourself there again,"
put in the colonel. " 'Mountain Joe' and
Inez Romuldo are to be married next week,
and we will both go to the wedding."

For he will gle us cause.

one of his friends a glass eye ; a Becoud

The third was thought to be a better
squinter than the other two, anc the fourth
better tnan all the rest. In short, language
cannot express how admirably they all
squiuted for they went one degree beyond
the superlative. At dinner they appeared
to have cork legs ; and their stumping about
made uioro diversion than at breakfast. At
tea they were all deaf; but at supper.whlch
