A Leadville Col., letter to the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat says: The ltio Grande
train climbs a long hill and steams into
Leadville ujion a ridge. To the east of the
track is spread out the city of the living.
On the slope to the west is the city of the
dead. leadville started a graveyard early
and patronized it well. For a time the head
boards were planted almost as rapidly on one
side of the hill us tho claim-stakes wero
driven on the other. There are lid,ooo reel

The mortality of the early history of this
10-year-old city was frightful. Men lay
down at night to sleep off a drunk and never
awoke. Nature plays queor freaks with
vital organs at an altitude of 10,035 feet.
Health was neglected in the wild mad rush
for carbonates. Men ato when they cmdd
get time, slept uny where, and never refused
an invitation to drink. Under such condi
tions Leadville acquired the name of ‘‘The
Pneumonia City,” and graves were in great

whole number, and such a strange assort

covers. In what other burial place can tho
visitor stand and moralize beside the grave
of a man who was given twenty hours by
the Vigilance Committee to leave town
and who died of pneumonia before tho time
Perhaps the most conspicuous object at
Evergreen is the Homcstake Monument. The
inscription tells tho whols story so far as it
is known. It is simply this:
MiCMOIUAL EIIECTED BY
CITIZENS OF LEADVILLE
To the Victims of a Suowslide
AT IIOMESTAKE MINE
And on the sido panels are the names of
the ten mon whose bodies were dug out of
the snow. They wore living in a cabin on
tho mountain side, near the mine. One
morning Leadville looked toward the Home
stake, rubbed her eyes, and looked again.
There was no cabin in sight—nothing but a
groat mass of snow and ice, which hod
slipped down and buried all. Tho monu
ment stands iu the centre of a little plot of
sacred soil, dowu upon which the kneeling,
anguish-stricken woman looks and forever
Nature bos provided a beautiful grove of
young pines, but tins is all she has done for
Evergreen Cemetery. The soil is the coars
est gravel. Soil is brought from the banks
of tho Arkansas, miles away. Two Mis
sourians, the Bulls, father and son, from
near Hannibal, have charge of the ceme
tery, and the}’ have done much to beautify
THE LITTLE ONES.
The saddest of the peculiar features in
which Evergreen abounds are the little clus
ters of short graves. “When dpath gets
into a family here,” said a Leadville man,
speaking of the mortality, “you have no
idea how it wall clean them all out.” As an
illustration of this the children of Mrs. Pitts
were referred to. This unfortunate woman
lost a child every Wednesday and buried one
every Thursday until her house was empty,
the Breene family—mother and three chil
dren—wero carried off in one winter. Two
of the Connors children came at one trip of
the hearse, and near by ure buried all the
Crilleys but the wife and mother. The Mc-
Kennas have four little graves in Evergreen
and perhaps twenty families have as many
as three children here. The Praters —mother
and four children—lie in tho Odd-Fellows’
lot. There are lots in the free ground and
the potter’s field. In the free ground
only the graves are paid for, and the
squares—live graves deep if grown persons
and six deep if children—are filled ns tho
bodies come, without regard to past associa
tions. Tljpre the dead lie iu methodically
MEETINGS ON RESURRECTION MORN.
When tho last trump blows what strange
ly assorted groups will arise from those
solid squares of the Leadville Cemetery!
Here, tor instance, Charles C. Windoai, who
took morphine at the Tabor Grand Hotel;
Richard Driver, who was killed in tho
Robert E. Lee mine: Lizzie Harmon, the
actress, and Charles Stewart, hung by tho
Vigilauoo Committee, will find themselves
near enough together to shake hands. A
little way off will lie Frank Gilbert and
Merrick Rosencranz, who were hung by
process of law. Rosencranz shot his partner
because they wero both smitten with tho
charms of one frail maiden, and Gilbert
shot his paitner because he was not divid
ing fair on the charcoal they were making
and selling. “Pay me, or you go East in a
box,” Gilbert said, and the result was boxes

himself; John Kramer, whose bones were
found out on the boulevard when the spring
run melted the snow a year ago; and Cyrus

The most striking monument of all is that
which marks the resting-place of Texas
Jack, as he was 1 jet ter known than by his
name of J. B. Onbohundro. Texas Jack
entered the show business about the same
time that Buffalo Bill, did and he was only
second to Cody in promise. He had married
a famous ballet dancer, and was filling an
engagement here when pneumonia carried
him off. His grave is in a well-cared-for
lot, and is marked by a slab bearing thejiu
Snore i to the Memory of
(.1. B. OMOHCNDRO).
Died June 38 isso.
The inscription occupies but a small place
on the slab, w’hich is fairly covered with
artistic work. First there is a good repre
sentation of a cartridge belt, with pistols
crossed and bowieknifo sheathed. Below is
sketched the trusty Winchester, ami then
the head of Texas Jack’s favorite horse, Yel
On the reverse of the slab are fingers
pointing Heavenward, and the inscription,
“Rest in peace. Remembered by his young
friends, J. J. Levy anil M. C. Levy.” If
Texas Jack had designed his own head
board he could not have done better. His
wife, in respect for his memory, retired
from the stage.
THE DECORATION IDEA DEVELOPED.
To the credit of Leadville let it be said,
her dead are not forgotten. Decoration
day means more here than the remembrance
of those who fell in battle. This city did
not come into existence until twelve years
after the war was over, but there are few
places where Decoration-day is so generally
observed in a literal sense. At the foot of
the Homostake monument there is a great
wreath of evergreen bearing the date of
May 30, 1887, and the inscription:
“Decorated in Memory of the Homestake
But little leas imposing than the Home
stake monument is the one “erected by the
employes of the Chrysolite mine to their
fallen companions.” .And here are nine
names and the recent decoration which is
general throughout the cemetery. Ono of
the Chrysolite victims was impaled by.au
iron pipe, which went through his body' and
bored its way into the timbering of the
shaft so far that it could not be loosened by
hand. And there the brave miner stood
pinned to the timbers, fully’ conscious
and calmly giving direction. Not until a
rope was fastened to the pipe and the engine
started was he fret'll from his place of tor
ture. The carbonate hills have furnished
many a hero. Two of tho Chrysolite vic
tims died from bail air. One was over
come by the gas in the shaft and a comrade
went down after him. He raised tho un
conscious man in his arms, put him in the
bucket, gave thy signal to hoist and fell
back. The buckets reached the top, but it
contained only a dead man. The wouldbe
rescuer had given his in a vain effort to save
his friend, but he was just as much a hero
in Leadville’s calendar as if he had fully suc
ceeded. Why shouldn’t such graves be

Side by side lie the O’Connor brothers.

LOVE IN PHILADEPHIA.
An Heiress Outwitted in Her Attempts
From tlie Missouri Republican.
“It’s a mighty sharp old man who can get
ahead of a young couple who have taken a
notion that their future happiness can only
be secured by a nuptial knot,” said Henry
C. Jordon of Philadelphia at tho Lindell
yesterday, “and while the papers are daily
chronicling the particulars of successful
elopements, the cases where the old gentle
man breaks up their little plans are few and
far between. But I know of one instance
at least where paternal sagacity got the best
of youthful energy, and it happened in
Hhiladelpliia only fast week, and, the Phila
delphia reporters didn’t get on to it either.
On one of the most fashionable streets in
that city is a big. square, stone-front resi
dence, standing away back in tho centre of
a spacious lawn. In this building resides
one of the richest merchants of Hliiladel
phia, a fat, jolly old soul, who rather likes
a bowl of good punch and is partial to whist.
His only living relative is a daughter, who
is a rather handsome girl und remarkably
bright, but rather eccentric in matters of
dress. The young lady is given as much
liberty as any other girl moving in good so
ciety, but her father very’ properly koops a
sharp lookout for adventurers mid fortune
hunters, and no man can have the pleasure
of her company without tho old gentleman
knows something of his antecedents. About
a year ago a young friend of mine began to
pay attention to the heiress. Although work
ing on a salary he had excellent prospects
for the future, and was a number one good
fellow in every particular. Upon first ac
THE YOUNG LADY’S FATHER
seemed to look upon his visits with favor,
and my friend was apparently iu smooth
waters until at last it dawned upon the old
gentlemen that his daughter was beginning
to show a decided preference for Wilson—as
I shaU call him—and he grow cold and dis
tant and finally wound up by writing Wil
son a curt note, requesting him to discon
tinue his visits, and, at the same time, he
gave his daughter a bit of fatherly advice
in the same connection and warned her
against recognizing my young friend in any
way. Why this sudden change in parental
demeanor I could not, at that time, under
stand. The girl, however, was full of spirit,
and being by this time deeply in love with
Wilson, the warning only angered her, and
as the old man doubtless expected she would,
mpt him in the park whenever she had an
opportunity, and,as a matter of course, op
position only strengthened their attachment.
These secret meetings wont on for some
time and at last the young couple, both be
ing of age, decided to settle the matter by
getting married. Wilson’s prospects hud
been greatly improved, his salary hail been
raised and he hail been promised on interest
in the concern for which he wus working, so
he felt himself able to tako cark of a wife.
They had laid all their plans and all they
lacked was a parson to tio tho knot, when
A CLERICAL-LOOKING GENTLEMAN
approached them as they wore discussing
matters in the park, and, handing them his
card, offered his services, volunteering tho
explanation that, he had accidentally over
heard their conversation. Such enterprise
on the part of a preacher looked rather sus
picious, but tho name on the card was that
of the pastor of a very respectable congrega
tion, so they decided to accept his offer, in
the meantime the old gentleman had been
suspiciously blind to all that was going oil.
Well, they prepared to make the jump last
Tuesday night when the futlier had gone to
tho club, and about 10 o’clock that evening
the young lady slipped out by a side door
and made her way to the street, where a
coupe and Wilson were waiting for her.
They drove directly to the minister's resi
dence and were ushered into a private
parlor, whore the clergyman awaited them.
He at once asked where were their wit

to s*s* tho joke, finally the old man recov

bride and groom.

Wilson, which caused him to so suddenly
turn uguinst him. anil finding out after
ward that they were untrue and that the
