THE gCRANTON TRIBUNE-WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 1902,
JEB STARK lay beneath the shade of
the only tiee in Scaly City which
tiff ot ded any icul piotectlon from
the blighting sun of an August day In
Arizona. Not twenty fcot away the
tmckst of tho M. K. and T. ro.ul trcin
Lied befoie the eye In tho heat haa
beating up fiom cinder roadbed. In tho
distune" the lonely passenger shanty
loomed out of the tiecless waste, the
ugliest object In an ugly prospect. Eutly
in the morning Jcb had finished his
"chords" about tho shanty. For a time
thoieufter he hud considered taking a
nup In the "waiting loom" on one of
the side benches, but Krause, tho op
erator, was in such uncertain temper
that h moment's rcllectlon decided him
on the wiser course of keeping out of
sight. llu betook himself, thetelore,
to tho scraggy shelter previously men
tioned, and c.inled with hlni Into his
retirement hla two deaicst possessions
(sacred because they In themselves
represented tho highest pinnacle of his
ambition), a battered old telegraph
sounder and key and a coll of whe.
Jcb was some day going to be an op
erator, and these weie tho means to
With the agility born of long prac
tice ho had shinned tho neatest tele
graph pole and made a working splice
to tho main line who. Fiom the mo
ment that was done nnd the Instrument
adjusted n lonely Arizona waif In the
midst of a sandy dcseit bashed in the
fascinating details of a woild far be
yond his ken. Absorbed In what to
most people would have been dry nnd
unlnteiesting enough, the loutinc of
train orders and business mest-ages held
him Inteiostcd to a point v.hetc he be
came oblivious to what w.n going on
about him. Thcrofoic, he failed to
notice a thick-set man In blue oveialls
and jumper, who suddenly appeared
out of tho plain and glided Into the of
fice of the bhanty. From thoie ho
emerged In a minute or two picceded
by the operator, neatly triced up with
clothesline and a btoom handle after
the appiovod method of the plains. It
was not until they were closo upon him
that Job saw the pair. His flrht In
stinct was to hide his Instrument as
much froih Krause as the outlaw.
"Who's tho kid?" the stranger asked
Krause shaiply, as they came to a halt
in front of him.
"My help," the operator answeied
"Sonny," the other .said, addressing
Jeb, "we'ie a-going down che load a
piece, and If you want to giow up to
Ibe a man like your pap, don't you take
no notion to see what wo'ie about.
As he spoke the outlaw lead justed the
bandanna handkerchief nctoss his nose
kind mouth, and, with a &hovo, sent
Crause forward down tho tiack in tho
lirection of Miner's Gulch, a soft stone
cutting not more than a quaiter of a
rule from the station.
"Well, I icckon Krause is drunk
again," the opeiator at the Junction
fluttered to himself as he banged away
It the key of his tender in a vain effoit
to laise the Scaly City office. "Some
thing's fcuie the matter," he said aloud,
ror tho comfort the sound of his voice
Save him in his perplexity.
"No answer from Scaly; No. 10 duo in
six minutes. What shall I du?" was tho
ttnessage he sent direct to the train dis
patcher at tho head of the line.
Befoie ho had had time to lecelvc an
answer from his chief the Junction op
erator was further pu.zled by the slow,
irregular ticking of tho instiument on
the Scaly City ciicuit. At llrst he could
not make out anything from the jum
bled beats of the sounder, save that
something was materially out of gear
in the system. As he listened, how
ever, his trained car began to pick out
here and there a letter of the message
that was coming through.
"Scaly City: Robbers Is heie, Krause
is killed. Jeb Scaly City; Robbns is
here, Krause is killed, Jeb" was tho
repeated warning that finally levelled
Itrcrit to the Junction man's bewildered
"I have you I have you I have ou"
he clicked back, as soon as tho full
meaning of what ho had heaid dawned
upon him. Darting to the comer of the
office he beized a red flag and toro up
the main track in tho diiectlon from
which tho mail would uppioach in a
scant minute and a half.
Tho conductor and chief mall cleik
were both hanging from a step as the
train ground by the operator in com
ing to a stop.
"What's the matter?" they asked In
one breath as soon as they could get
within hailing distance of him.
The opeiator icpoatcd his expetlenccs
of the last ten minutes, nnd the tluce
twirled to tho office for iiistiuctlous
from headquarteis. f
"Word liom Scaly robbeis. ring No.
10; proceed cautiously with empty cats
and effect captuic," was being ticked
off over and over again as they came
Tho mall was hastily transferred
from two cms into a third; u day
coach and smoker weio emptied of pas
sengers, nnd tho loadejbturs backed out
of harm's way dovP a siding. With
the dummy tniln In tow tho locomotive
started for Scaly City with six heavily
aimed mall cleiks distributed over tho
tender and in the cab as a giintd.
The engineer felt hl3 way cautiously
down the line, icady at a moment's
notice to bilng his train to a stuud
etlll. No sign of anything out of the
ordinary was to be seen as they camo
In sight of tho shanty. Tho tliemun
and two mail clerks made their way
Very Remarkable Cure of Diarrhoea.
"AboutvsIx years ago for the Hist
time In my life I had a sudden and se
vere attack of dlanlioca," says Mib.
Alice Miller, of Moigan, Texas. "I got
temporary relief, but It came, back again
and again, and for six long yeut s I have
Buffeted more inlseiy and agony than
I tan tell. It was wotso than death,
My husband spent hundieds of dblhits
for physicians' preset Iptlons nnd treat
ment without avail. Finally wo moved
to JJosrjuo county, our ptcsent home,
and one day I happened to see an ad
vertisement of Chamboilaln'a Colic,
Cholera und Plaiihoea Remedy with a
testimonial of a man who had been
cured by It, The case was so similar to
my own that I concluded to tty the
remedy. Tho result was wonderful. I
could hardly tealUo that I was well
again, or believe It could be so after
having suffered bo long, but that one
bottle of medicine, costing but a few
rents, cured me." For sale by all drug
carefully toward the building to Investi
gate. On tlie floor lay Kruusc's revolv
er. The room was In confusion, nnd
theto had evidently been tt struggle.
Not slopping to scaroh further, tho men
Inn lied back to the locomotive und re
ported. Without a word tho engineer start
ed his machine ahead down the tiack.
Ftu thct mote, ho no longer tan nt a
cautious ciuwi, but opened tho throttle
wide nnd plunged away as If making
up time on his tegular schedule. Tho
clerks got their tevolvets icady nnd
waited. At the gulch they were Hugged,
as the engineer , hud expected they
would be. As the locomotive slowed up
In passing the head mull clerk shot tho
man with tho Hag dead. A fusllndo
ltom tho side of the truck waB tetuinctl
by tho other men on tho locomotive,
and then silence, bavc for tho stcudy
pant of tho engine.
Two of tho clerks tossed the dead man
roughly on top of tho coal In the tender
and started with their companions on
a run In the diiectlon in which the rob
bers had disappeared. They weie Just
in time to see four men Jump on bion
chos nnd ride for dear life acioss the
"What can have become of Kiauso?"
the chief mail clerk asked as they
g.ued disconsolately after the retreat
"Maybe they took him with them,"
one of the number hazarded.
" 'Tnln't likely," the chief answeied.
"They've got enough to attend to in
getting away without lugging him
"Sptcad out and we'll beat the
gulch," the engineer said. "Wo tnn
only spend ten minutes at it, but If he
is anywhere about we can tuin him up
in that time."
Tho men moved out fan-like nctoss
the gulch, pecilng behind the rocks and
low -lying bushes, to see If by any
chance ho had been killed and hi& body
disposed of in that way.
One by one tho paity t etui tied to the
locomotive with no news of the missing
man. The engineer held down his
whistle tope for a. good two minutes,
and waited five more for lesults. As
nothing came of it the trip back to
Scaly City and the Junction was re
sumed. As they ncatcd the platfoim at Scaly
City a lonely little Hgure stood sil
houetted in the twilight against tho
passenger shanty. It was Jeb.
"I want tor git outer here,". he said,
teat fully, as he climbed into tho cab.
"Theie ain't nothln' going to keep me
atound this place."
"What happened, sonny?" one of the
clerks asked, as the dummy ttnln ran
swiftly back tow aid the Junction.
Then between sobs, despite his prai
rie tiaining, for he wasn't a ery big
boy, Jcb told of watching Krause dis
appear in the gulch in the custody of
He had sent the message down the
line as well as he could with the old
.sender, and his knowledge of the code.
It had taken him a long time to make
sure that anyone had it, though, and
even then he did not know where it
had been lecelved, as he knew nothing
of tho calls. After the Junction's reply
hud i cached him, he said, he ian to the
head of the gulch by a loundabout way
and saw the jobbers ride up on their
ponies. There were four of them, not
counting the man who had Krause in
custody. Fiom their gebtuies he said
they seemed to be aiguing about some
thing. At any rate they shook their
flbts In Kiause's face, and one man
finally knocked him down and fired a
pistol at him. Hence Jch said he con
cluded they had killed h p. He was
afraid the robbers might catch him if
ho stayed any longer, so he went back
to the station and reached thoie just
after the dummy train had left for the
While Jeb had been telling ills stoty
tho chief mall clerk had climbed oxer
the coal to the body on the tender. Ho
came back pale and with body all
"We got the wrong man, boys," he
said, "it's Krause up theie."
Tho other men on the locomotive wore
moved according to their natutes, Some
swore sympathetically, while others
simply shook their heads. The engi
neer did neither of thebe things, Ho
opened the thtottlo a tilde and rc
maiked; "Well, he Hugged us for them,
"Yes," someone absented.
"Well, he got his wages."
Jeb spent that night with tho opera

To obtain the facts of tho case a

the' ucused, the accuser, a few friends
of both parties, und tho little children
of the accuser.
The statements of both sides were
heaid, and stiange to say they were
exactly tho same. The word construc
tion was of such a character however,
as to lead some persons of mutuie ago
to apply a wrong meaning to them.
The evidence obtained proved that
rumors were due entirely to the
children's words being misconstrued,
and an evil meaning being applied to
them by pet sons other than the par
ents of the chlldtcn.
