THUS THEY WEDDED.
Colorado Charlie and Sophia
Blossom Mads Man
I went into the little New Mexi
can village just as dusk was deep
ening into night- As the stage
with its jaded team rolled into the
outskirts of the place I at once no
ticed something unusual was going
on. Cowboys gotten up iii their
fanciest togs rode by us on gdly
caparisoned bronchos, galloping
gaily to the merrily jingling of the
huge spurs on their riders’ heels
Men and women on foot, evident
ly of the “society” element of
the town, walked alongside the
road, all going in the same direc
Presently we passed the lit’le
adobe church, which was brilliant
ly lighted, and, as I could see
through the small windows pro
fusely, if not artistically, decorated
with evergreens and clean white
“What’s up?” I ventured to ask
the driver, who had not spoke a
word for the last twenty-seven
“Weddin,” he replied, laconi
•cally, and gave the horses a vicious
cut with the whip which started
them into a trot.
I said no more and in a few mo
ments we drew up at the door of
the “hotel,” another low, rambling
adobe, whose front rose squarely
up from the street.
The landlord was at the door,-
and welc med me with a grunted
“good evening, sir.” I went into
the house and, laying aside my
wraps and seeing my grip safely
set behind ihe little office countei 1
and cigar stand, was led by a frow
sy lad of 10 to the rear of the
house, where I found water, soap
and towel. After washing the in
evitable desert grit out of my eyes,
ears and nostrils and from my face
and hands, I walked out to supper,
which was announced at that junc
The meal was clean and well
prepared by the landlord’s wife,
who did her owh cooking, and I
was in the proper condition to
enjoy it, which I proceeded to do.
“You are goin’ to the weddin,’ J.

she poured my second cup of cof

“They must be an interesting
couple,” I remarked, “I think I
Having finished supperl walked
into the front room, paid fifteen
cents for a five cent cigar, lit it
and strolled up the street. When
I reached the church it was filled
with cowboys, Mexicans, fine peo
ple and coarse people, large and
small, all busy talking and guying
each other, smoking and waiting
for “the fan to begin.”
Presently there was the sound
of horses’ feet at the door, a half a
minute of silence, then two big
burly fellows in Mexican sombre
os, whom I afterwards learned were
the ushers, elbowed their way in
and by main force cleared a pas-j
sage from the door to the altar, be- 1
hind which the dapper young
preacher, who had entered from the
rear, took his place. The groom
could be seen peeping in at the
’back door anxiously.
Every head was turned toward
the front door as the tramp of the .
bridal party was heard entering,
i First came the ushers, who had re
i turned to the door after clearing
i the aisle. The spurs rattled on
1 the rough floor as the stalwart fel
i lows stalked in stately manner
. through the room, and after the}’
: were past my station I noticed the
' big bump under the coat of each,
made by the indispensable six
shooter. Then came the groom’s
attendants, bigfine looking fellows
with long hair aud fierce mous-
taches, waxed for the occasion.
But one of these wore his spurs.
The other was with ut them, but
made up the difference with a
“laundered” shirt aud standing
collar. Both carried “guns” .of
The bridesmaid followed, each
chewing her gum vigorously and
looking her sweetest, one in pink
and the other in white, with bou
quets of wild flowers in their
hands. The bride followed, alone,
looking superb —Tier complexion
fair, her hair thick, long and
brown, dark, fiery eyes aud smtll
firm mouth. She walked with the
stately confidence of a western wo
man, born and raised in an atmos
phere of independence, where every
one looks out for himself or her
self, as the case may be.
The groom meanwhile entered
and met the bride at the altar,
where he saluted her with a kiss,
vigorously applied to her lips.
“Colorado Charlie” was not so
large a man as either of his atten
dants, hut was a muscular and
firmly knit fellow, with a cool,
gray eye, cold, thin lips, and jet
black short hair. He was not a
vicious looking man, but certainly
impressed the beholder as a lion in
disguise for courage and resolu
tion. There was withal some
thing about him to compel admi
The minister, who was shaking
from head to foot, commanded the
contracting parties to join hands,
which they did.
Turning to the audience he said :
“If there be any present who
would forbid that this man and
woman be joined in holy matrimo
ny, let him now speak, or forever
after hold his peace.”
The groom and attendants pulled
The minister almost fainted.
The bride looked at him curiously
for a moment, then burst into a

groom, assuringly, “wo just wanted

marked the principal attendant,
who stood beside him.

minister solemnly, “do you take

“Ee-yaw,yaw-yaw,” broke in the
voice of the omnipressent burro as
he put his head in at a broken
window and failed to reach the
dried grasses on the hat of a wo
man sitting inside and unconsci
ous of his presence. The woman
started at the warm breath on the
back of her neck and another wo
man in the next row turned and
leaned back to see “what was the
row.” At this moment there was
a flash, a roar like a cannon, a
shower of feathers in the air, sud
denly silence and the burro sank
back out of the window a carcass.
The feathers came from the dried
jaybird on the hat of the woman,
in the front seat, who came in
range just as the usher pulled the

HE DIED DECENTLY
But Ha Wouldn’t Consent to
Shuffle Off This Mortal Coil
Until He Was Prepared.
The Sunday Republic.
For weeks and weeks Tom Shep-
I pard had been a sick man at our
mining camp at Black Bear Valley.
Everybody felt soiry for him, and
yet a man in a mining camp was a
'great inconvenience and a burden.
: One day Judge Watkins went up
i to see him, and after finding him
no better and no worse than he
: had been for many weeks, he said :
“Tom, I don’t want'to seem cold
hearted about this thing, but the
. boys are beginning to wonder why
i you don’t die or get well.”
“Yes, reckon they are,” replied
Tom, “and you can tell ’em I’m
goin’ to die.”
“Do you feel it’s fur the best,
“I do. I ain’t got much to live
fur and might as well peg out now
as any other time. I’ve been wait
in’ fur a week or two.”
“Waitin’! Fur what?”
“Fur to die decently. I’m no
lord or duke, but I want things
fixed up in good shape. I want to
be washed up, shaved, hov my ha’r
cut and git into some decent duds,
and I won’t die till I do.”
The Judge told the boys what
was required, and that afternoon
two or three of ’em knocked off
work and fixed Tom up. A shirt
was borrowed of one, a coat of an
other; a vest of another, and by
and by the sick man was rigged
out in the best the camp afforded,
When all this had been done, he
“Now, then, I feel more like dy
in’, but there’s one more thing I
want. I want Joo Billings to come
up with his fiddle and play me a
“But Joe’s mighty busy today,”
protested one of the men.
“Can’t help that. He either
comes up, or I don’t die. I’m go
in’ out of this camp in decent
shape er hang right on fur the
next three months!”
Joe was sent for, and after con
siderable kicking he got his fiddle
and wont up to Tom’s shanty. Tom
was propped up in bed and waiting
and Joe sat down and gave the
“Old Oaken Bucket,” “Old Fol ,r s
at Home,” “Nellie Gray,” and a
half dozen other well-known airs.
He had been playing for an hour,
his eyes on the hills opposite,
Judge Watkins looked in aud said :
“Cut it off, Joe —Tom’s dead !”
And so he was, and when the
boys came in and observed the
placid and contented look on his
face they were agreed that he had
died decern ly and been given a fair
start on his way. M. QUAD.
How to Cure a Severe Cold.
A few weeks ago the editor was
taken with a very severe cold that
caused him to be in a most misera
ble condition. It was undoubtedly
a bad case of la grippe and recog
nizing it as dangerous he took im
mediate steps to bring about
speedy cure. From the advertise
ment of Chamberlain’s Cough
Remedy and the many good recom
mendations included therein, we
concluded to make a first trial of
the medicine. To say that it was
satisfactory in its results, is put
ting it very mildly, indeed. It
acted like magic and the result was
a speedy and permanent cure. —

THROWS WATSON OVER.
Says the Contest For Black’s Seat
Is Too Much.

“And now it is announced that
Hon. Thomas E. Watson will con

A Sudden Death.
On Nov. 24th, Claudia Ellis, aged
three years and eleven months,
died very unexpectedly. He was
bright and playful as usual —
seemingly hearty and well, but be
tween 11 and 12 o’clock the older
boy called the mother to find
Claud gasping and ready to fall in
the yard. In a few minutes he
breathed no more. All efforts to
revive him had no effect. The
physician arrived only to find him
dead. T- H. Ellis was at his work
in Trion when he received the
message,“Come at once, your baby
is in a manner dead.” At once he
came aud found the baby boy
asleep in death. The pet of the
home had suddenly left for the
“Home Beyond the Skies.” A grea
ter shock never came to a devoted
father and mother. The father
looked upon the lifeless body and
said, “Goodbye my dear one, the
I Lord giveth and the Lord taketh
away, blessed be the name of the
Lord.” This affliction rests heav
ily upon the hearts of these par
ents and seem harder than they
can Bear. They ask for the pray
ers of the Christian people.

MEMORIES OF A LIFE.
Stories That Seem to Support the
Theory of Reincarnation.
“I have a number of friends who
have a shadowy recollection of a
previous existence upon the earth,”
said a theosophist, supporting the
doctrine of reincarnation.
“You doubtless have also had
experiences with an indefinable va
gue remembrance of something, or
somebody came to you, which puz
zled you and made you say, “I'm
sure I’ve seen that before.’ Yit
you may know positively that as
far as this present existence is
concerned it was impossible for
you to have received even an idea
of the place or person. I have of
ten met people with whom I be
came intimate at first sight. It
seems as I have often told them
that I had known them for years.
It was only the other evening that
I met a lady from San Francisco
whose face had been in my mind
for years. As soon as wo mot
there seemed to be something that
drew us together. Wo were as old
“The most remarkable instance
I ever heard is that of the daugh
ter of Isaac Fulton. Twelve years
ago he resided in Effingham coun
ty, Ills. While there he buried a
daughter named Maria, who was
taken away just as she was budding
into womanhood. About a year
later he rem >vod to Dakota, where
he still resides. About three years
after his daughter’s death he was
blessed with another little girl,
who was christened Nellie, it being
the favorite name of his wife.
When the little one became old e
nough to talk, she persisted in call
ing herself Maria. She became
quite angry when told her name
was Nelie. She said the nameb -
longed to her, as her parents used
to call her Maria. A matter of
business took Mr. Fulton back to
Effiingbatn county, and for compa
ny he took Nellie along. The
father was surprised at the intui
tive knowledge the girl had of the
place. She not only recognized
the old home, but many people she
had never seen whom the first
daughter had been acquainted with.
About a mile from the home was a
schoolhouse where Maria had gone
to school. Little Nellie had never
seen the place, yet she gave an ac
curate description of it to her fa
ther and expressed a strong desire
to visit it. Accordingly her father
took her out to the schoolhouse.
As soon as she was inside she
marched straight up to the desk
her sister had occupied and said,
‘This is mine.’ In telling the sto
ry Mr. Fulton said that it seemed
as if the dead had come back from
the grave, but her mother would
not have it so. She says, if that is
true, she had but one child, and
God gave her two.” —Pittsburg
Electric Bitters is a medicine
suited for any season, but perhaps
more generally needed when the
languid, exhausted feeling prevails
when the liver is torpid and slug
gish and the need of a tonic and
alterative is felt. A prompt use
of this medicine has often averted
long and perhaps fatal bilious fe
vers. No medicine will act more
surely in counteracting and freeing
the system from the malarial poi
