THE FITTSBTJRG DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY, ATJG-TJST "14, 1889.
A FRONTIER TRAGEDY
The Sad Death of a Texas Gambler
and the Girl Who Loved Him,
PETEIFIED ON THE RIYER PECOS.
Their Bodies Turned to Stone and In
humed After Seven Tears.
0KB WAS TAKEN AND THE OTHER LEFT
The body of Hcury Bertram passed
through Philadelphia yesterdayen route for
the family burying ground in one of those
quaint and quiet New England towns in
which witches innumerable are buried.
Henry Bertram was known ou the South
western irontier as "Handsome Harry."
He was a gambler, and, in the vernacular of
the frontier, accounted "a square man." In
1882 he appeared at Murderville, in Pecos
county, Texas. Murderville was the city
of a day. It was a barren alkali mesa,
about fire miles from the confluence of the
Pecos and the Bio Grande rivers.
The Southern Pacific Bailroad was pro
jected through that country, and Murder
Title, from a one-tent saloon, sprang into
metropolitan importance in a few weeks.
The one saloon was supplemented by
dozens of others, and in three weeks after
iti inception the town boasted a justice of
thu peace, a company of rangers, 42 saloons,
three dance houses, two hotels, three barber
shops, a laundry and half dozen dining
saloons. All the saloons had gambling ad
juncts and poker, keno, Spanish monte.faro,
1 rouge et noir, the mustang game and other
ecu ernes of chance flourished in erery drink
Jack Harris, afterward killed at San An
tonio by Alarsnal Ben Thompson, one ol the
worst men in Texas, ran the principal dive.
His patrons were found among the 20,000
navvies at work upon the Sunset extension
of the Southern Pacific Bailroad". They pat
ronized his bar, got drunk and when half
crazed with the wretched liquor sold lost all
-.that remained of their earnings at faro or
AIT ALL BOUND GAMBLER.
"Handsome Harry," and the name did
not belie him, was a monte dealer at Jack
Harris', and, in the language of the fron
tier, he was exceedingly "slick." He lost
no money for his backer, but steadily added
to the "velvet" with which ne was pro
Tided. "Handsome Harry" differed from the
other gamblers. He was not profane, he did
not drink, he did not use tobacco. He did
carry a murderous six-shooter in his belt,
however, and he used it on the slightest
provocation. Ho one knew whence he came,
and as he did not associate with any of his
fellow-gamblers but little was known of his
life in Murderville. He had a tent on the
outskirts of the town, and to this he retired
when business was over, always sober, al
wavs the gentleman that he was.
One night when the stage came in from
Del Bin a woman, young, and with a face
and manner that stamped her as above the
common herd, alighted. She secured apart
ments at one of the hotels, a wretched con
cern of canvas, and when nfght settled down
upon the town and the revelry began, she
, ventured forth, alone and unprotected, and
atter a short conference with a rough turned
her steps toward Jack Harris' dance hall.
Just as she entered the door an altercation
occurred among the gamblers about the
table where "Handsome Harry" was deal
ing. Pistols were drawn in a twinkling,
and a half dozen weapons were leveled at
the dealer's heart. He pulled his six
shooter, bat, just as he was about to fire, the
woman, who had entered the tent unob
served, sprang forward and threw her arms
about his neck.
THEY FELL TOGETHER.
There was a succession of blinding flashes,
a chorus of loud reports. Handsome Harry
and the girl clinging about his neck fell to
gether to the rude floor, and their life blood
was commingled. One of the opposing
party dropped dead also, but this did not
atone for the murder of Handsome Harry
and the girl that had sprung forward to
They Vere both killed and the gamblers
and the saloon-keepers and the rustlers con
gregated at Murderville, suspending their
business for a few hours, followed the
blanket-shrouded remains of the two to
their last resting place in the vallev of the
Pecos close beside that alkali-tainted
stream, within a few hundred yards of
where it empties into the Bio Grande.
All along the bank of the Pecos, at this
point, are quicksands, and everywhere the
soil is impregnated with alkali. Handsome
Harry and the unknown girl who died in an
effort to save his life, were buried in one
common grave in that shifting alkali soil of
the Pecos bottom. A rude gravestone of
wood a mere plank was set above their
graves, and upon it in rude lettering was
painted the known story of their lives.
Breast to breast they lay for seven long
years. The railroad, completed, wound
about their heads, and daily the whistles of
the locomotives as they crossed the Pecos
bridge sounded their requiem.
Last week a gray-haired man and a woman
in.deep mourning alighted at Langtry, the
railroad station nearest the Pecos. As they
stepped from the cars, the eyes of the woman
were turned across the mesa, and she saw
glistening in the August sun Murderville's
monument an immense pile of broken bot
tles, which had been thrown out by the sa
loon keepers when the town was in all the
glory of its crime and debauchery.
TIIEIB BODIES TUBS ED TO STONE.
Some of the railroad laborers almond
eyed Chinamen, who felt no emotion in
common with the strangers assisted to hunt
up the lonely grave and throw out the shitt
Seven years of chemical action had
wrought a wondrous change. The bodies of
Handsome Harry and the unknown girl,
still lying breast to breast, were exhumed,
but the action of the alkali soil had petrified
them, and, perfect as in life, they were re
produced, wrapped in the blankets that on
the frontier suffice for shrouds, in indissolu
ble and indestructible stone.
When the spades of the Chinamen re
vealed the bodies the face of the veiled
woman flashed, perhaps with anger, per
haps with shame. Anyway, this was her
order, delivered in clear, metallic tones:
"Lift out his body, but leave hers."
The Chinamen obeyed, and the stiffened
body of Handsome Harry, as lifelike as
when he rose, pistol in hand, to face his last
msulter, was lifted out His features were
perfect, ana, bending over him, the veiled
woman dropped a tear.
"Poor Harryl" she murmured, and then
she signed for the Chinamen to fill up the
Mechanically they obeyed her order, and
the marbleized bodv of the unknown woman
who had sacrificed her life in a vain effort to
save that of the handsome gambler was
recommitted to the petrifying soil bv order
