TIIE PCP ANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY MORNING,' -FEBRTJ ART 28. 1890.

Tara-tara-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra! ransr out
the shrill tones of the bugle. As far
as eye, could reach from west to east,
from woodland, bogr and prairie, a non
descript, feverish. Impatient mass of
ruBhlnsr humanity was seen, fully 20.
000 strontc. The hundreds of United
States marshals and troops who had
for so many days wearily guarded the
coveted territory from trcspuss slirhed
with relief when the first notes of the
preemption slKnal were heard. I.oiik be
fore noon the thousands who had start
ed for Arkansas City, who had ramped
at Ponea, at Ulack Bear Creek, who
hud pushed on cheerfully in spite of
the swollen rivers, bottomless mud and
all the woes incident to an invading
army, were ranKcd along the wire fem e'
Ihut marked the Oklahoma line. Open
wagons, prairie schooners, sulkies, bus
Kles. carts pulled by donkeys, mules,
oxen and horses of all kinds and every
blood were stationed on the line. The
great majority of the settlers hud
slaked everything on Oklahoma, ami
many of theHe were seated on horses
prepared to race for their future homes.
On the dead Hue, next to a wagon
which bore the following words on its
canvus cover: 'Chintz-Hugged in Illi
nois, . Skinned In Nebraska. White
capped in liuliiuui, Uald-kuobbed in

liumy or Must," was a modest und neat
ly covered wagon, Though filled with
u miscellaneous assortment of house
hold utensils ami farm Implements,
tills wagon presented a curiously fem
inine appearance. Harnessed on one
side of its pole was a hopefully feeble
nag that seemed inspired to pull or
die. On the seat was a boy T eight
winters. He was not humpbacked,
though he gave that unfortunate Im
pression: but the snows of life hud
somehow shriveled his little form, and
he bent like a bow. He clung to the
battered reins, while a look of deter
mination was set upon his weuxened
"Keep a cool head. Hub; after I've
slaked my claim and dug a spadeful of

It came from a woman on horsebuck
Hub's mother, who hail mounted the
nigh 'horse to make a surer race for
lund. In front of her Wee was safely
""Tied', her baby girl, just three years old.
Hub was too young and feeble to drive
and care for his sister at the same lime,
so Wee went on horsebuck with the ud
These three people were among the
great army of Immigrants who hud
staked all on the president's proclama
tion opening the new territory of Ok
lahoma to the public.
Tom Korall, the children's father,
had died in the saddle booming some
where In the Indian territory; and
Caddy Korall. his wife, was left In
Kausus with tile two children. It was
In her blood to scrumble for new land.
Kxcifement and the hope of u nimrter
section were toon strong, und now.
mounted on Jerry, she saw land and
home wultlinj for her on the bunks of
the Cimarron river.
The rustling now became a rushing
..and,, a shunting. Yells und shrieks
quickened tile hoofs of even the most
decorous mule. The hour hud come.
Twelve o'cl.m k was at hand. The bugle
blew. At noon precisely, on Monday,
April 'i'i, begj;n the desperate nice, that
nil the world has heard .of. for Oklahoma-land.
. There was no time, for
pood-byes now. Caddy wanted to kiss
hei' boy again. She couldn't reach him.
She kissed her hand instead, and gal
loped off. Bub urged his horse to the
mockery of u trot. The land sharks
who but now hud made Jokes at the
boy's expense und tried to chaff the single-minded
nthcr? were olT und gone
on their Meet bronchos the liullini
ponies. The day was bright and clear.
The race could be seen for miles over
the rolling prairie. Hub strained his
eyes itnil kept the two Hying llgures on
horseback in sight as long ns he could
see for teurs and dust, lie heard men
swearing violently and saw many
brandish weapons. The untamed emo
tlunal natures of the boomers found
vent In yelling: "Yahoo! Yahoo!" ut
the top of their lungs, and in tiring
shots from revolvers and Winchesters.
The mother lied, well in the van. among
honest citizens and "parairle toughs,"
who meant to get land at any cosi. T
said that Caddy was well at the head?
rio'she was, Jerry outdid himself on
that day. Yet she was not the first.
One, who had the bold eyes of a cosmo
politan belle, the assurance of a Tcxun
cowboy, and who kept her saddle like a
cirrus rider, was full a quarter of a
jnlle ahead. Sire led the race on a mag
nificent roan. . She turned and chal
lenged them all with a laugh and with
gestures of .defiance. Though she
smiled insolently at the men. she looked
sympathetically at the pale, slight
mother who, with one arm around the
child and with the reins in the other
hand, urged Jerry by sharp clucks.
Close behind Caddy rode the leader of
the notorious gang of desperadoes who
had done so much to fleece and terror
ize the farmer boomers. This man
went by the name of "Orlzzly Jim."
The pace was terrific. The three had
turned more to the eastward away
from the railroad. Grizzly Jim began

desperado could not overtake the lead
ing girl. In his anger the blood surged
Into his eyes and blinded him. Caddy
was not ten rods ahead of him In a di
rect line. He raised his Winchester,
took rapid aim and blazed away. At
which of the two had he fired? Alas!
which had he hit? Caddy's right arm
fell helpless. Jerry gave a desperate
plunge In fright. The woman swayed
a falotness seized her, and she fell.
With an oath the brute passed her
where she lay. Jerry, conscious of a
lighter weight, raced onward with the
Now, the bold rider of the yellow hair
heard the shot. She looked around and
took in the whole scene with her quick
eyes. With difficulty she reined her
wild horse and tried to intercept the
baby's perilous ride. She set her teeth.
The wlldness of her nature wrestled
with Hie womanly. This was her hour
of glory that she, a girl, should beat
thousands of men In the struggle for
lund. What would she not do to stake
the first section on the northern bunks
of the Cimarron river? She could see

"1 guess I'll have to give It up."
The girl turned once more to the south
ward towards the promised land, and
then the adventuress in her yielded
to the woman. She rode bravely buck
to where the heap of mortality lay
close beside a scraggly tuft of sage
"O, you ruffian!" She shook her list
in the astonished Jim's face us she
passed him like a Hush of yellow light.
The land shark turned and saw her
tenderly lift the fallen woman's head
upon her lap and kiss the tremulous
"Well. Til be stewed! I didn't think
she had It In her; she's no slouch, you
bet;" with that semi-colon of admira
tion he spurred Ills hard-breathing
pony for the home stretch.
Of all the fertile spots In the Cimar
ron valley, this was the greenest. So
at least a Jaded horse thought us he
cropped the tender grass and pawed
Joyfully In the dark loam. He was
saddled; from a distance a snude could
be easily distinguished secured length
ways along his side. A nueer bundle
seemed to dance in the saddle, and one
might almost swear that tiny hands
clutched the mane from time to time.
And now from behind a large stump
nppeared a head. It hud on It a broad
biiiumed. mouse-colored sombrero,
embroidered about the edge, with silk
cords dangling from the sides. A
tierce,, scowling face peered down Into
that quiet valley. The eyes scanned
It and then rested on the peaceful horse.
One hand nervously twirled a coarse,
bluck mustache, while the other played
with the trigger of a gun. Wonder was
expressed In every feature from the
arch above the eyebrows to the mouth
which puckered Itself lii a silent
whistle. The mouth did not look
cruel now. It Is strange how the lines
of tenderness and cruelty cross each
other, und how in some faces there Is
implacable feud between the two.
"I'mph! If any sojer or govn'ment
cuss hez got ahead o' me, I'll have the
drop on him ez sure us he's a born
critter." Presently the look of wonder
Increased to a curious astonishment:
"If it hain't the bebby! No use for
this," he tupped u modern repeutlng
rifle, "to git the land, you bet."
drizzly Jim stood face to face with
Wee, the baby boomer. The child's
big violet eyes looked confidingly upon
"Ill' me dlnk-o-watah." The tiny
face puckered as If It were going tu
cry, then controlled Itself bravely.
For the tlrt time the thought of that
dastardly shot crossed drizzly Jim's
mind. He was so used to deeds of
violence that they did not easily prick
his leather conscience. What could he
do before a buby? Bravado was use
less. He looked Into the trusting face
of the three-year-old girl. Then lie did
the only thing he could. He took from
his holster a tin canteen, went to the
brook and returned.
"Tank mi," cooed the baby. Then
after a short pause, during which u
hundred expressions Indicating inde
cision passed and repusscd the man's
durk fuce, the child went on:
"Take me down, I'se tired."
The strong, urms tenderly unstrap
ped the buby girl and he took licr in

she clung to his neck.
"You'se a goody man; tiss me."

blushed before he touched Wee's
"I'se so tired Jerry Jiggled me.
Where's mummer? 1 tink I do to
sleen." And there and then Wee- laid
her curly head upon the rough corduroy
shoulder and went to sleep as If upon
her mother's breast.
"Wall, Jim, you're euchered this trip,
an' no mistake I wonder whar the
boys be!" muttered the man as he
carefully sat ddwn upon a stone. He
looked at the sleeping child In his arms.
In his belt were two pistols and a
bowie-knife. At his feel whs n rlilp
Yet never had he been so disarmed f
Bince since a bady of his own had
nestled there oh. so many years ago.
What a wild night that was, when he
had kicked his sick wife senseless, for
throwing the whisky out of the win
dow; had given his baby girl one last
hasty kiss and had ridden away never
to return. Afterwards he read in a ni
per that the baby died In a week. It
was twenty years since he had held a
baby ,and all that time he had never
received from any creature a touch of
confidence or love.
"I couldn't hev killed this critter's
mammy; 1 never aimed on her." He
consoled himself with hat thought.
At this, moment hoofs were heard in
"The uebby shall hev her claim If I
hev to stake It with my life," whis
pered Orlzzly Jim. He laid the child
down cautiously upon the grass. He
ran for the spude and dug into the
rich soil with quick energy. Shouts
were now heard: "Yahoo! Yahoo!"
They came nearer.
