   Newspaper Library, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1894, Milwaukee, Wisconsin                                2 the tent is I should never think of drag mighty I should ging that with CHAETEB Capt Hampton find It veiy hard to work It perhaps it may have I suppose Jacob these fellows seldom interfere About with a man unless they think it safe to do I would much rather in future you did not invent any stories about Always stick to the lad ly ing never pays ia the long Got CHAPTEB Two men were aninner I was never surprised than when you came in Bob regular flooredI It was only a few day sago I was thinkingover that rig we were in We made a good bit out of we didnt do I have wished sometimes since that I had been as deep in it as you and had bolted and cleared out I made Boost out of it but then yon see I ran more risk by along Yon might have got ayearortwo jer being mixed up iri but what with nobbing the horse and what with hav ing to pretty near choke stable I should have got fourteen years You could have been with we in that part If you had been instead of only taking the partof getting round the and persuading her to get the stable boy to slip out to see her for five If the fools had played their part better we should have got off without my having to meddle but she made euch a poor story of it that something was up and came back again and just met me was dropping the window of the He knew me by and there was nothing to do but to while as you had been swelling it with those false moustaches no one twigged you from the girls description and you were able to spend your money at it did not do me much It went after the rest quick You knew where to find me from I suppose know he is a pal of we work together We knew each other years and years when we both had money to and spent it and more He had more than I He came into a big gish fortune when he came of but ran through it in a couple of Then he had a bit of luck on the and more luck still they used to say at till He was one day kicked out of one of them and that did for him and he came down to the threecard dodge and games of that he was wonderfully clever at cardscould do almost anything with 1 have seen him beta company all round that be cut a king three times let them shuffle them as much as they and he never touched the cards till he and I never saw him miss it though there were a score of men round looking at his I have seen him do that and nobody was ever able to make out how he did He could make the cards do most I have written to him half a dozen times within the hist few telling him what an opening there was out here for a chap with such talents as he has got but I told him straight it was of no use his coming un less Be was ready to play with pistols as well as with and I expect that is what has kept him I fancy it from what he Laxev never had If he coufd have made money he gaveme your It suited my book to be out of England for afew and when I had got across the water 1 said to I will go and see Joe Murdoch at New I am not as handy with the cards as I dont know who but I have worked the three card and many an evening Laxey and I have been in my room or liiflj we spent an hour or two over the and he has put me up to some of his and I have worked at them when I have had nothing else to do and could not till I have come to do some of them pretty near as well as he I dont mean to sny that I thought of going into that line when I came down but JLsaid to myself There is Joe Murdoch we have played more than one game and I can trust him and I think lie can trust He has been here six and I expect he must know the ropes and can give me some good whether we go in for anything together or That is We can run straight or if we dontrun to gether perhaps I can put you on to a line of country whore you may make good running for You left England 1 suppose The other Turf business No I suppose they would call it money under lalse I onlv ran dark it wns a gjrlI have got here with me that did the Brought a girl over with Warbles I should not have thought you would have bothered vour self with a girl out I dont suppose t should if it hadntbeen that I expected to make her She goes as inv she looks on me as an old friend of her Is that so the other asked doubt 1hat is BO The girl is straight straight as a I inct never mindhow 1 met I saw she was a cirl and would be a poodlooking and it struck me that such a girl could be made very I had her taught a bit and and I fancy she could pass anywhere as a you know when a respect able gentleman of my with an un common pretty daughter arrives at a big sayat Scarborough or Brigh and the girl is you can see for yourself that there is money to be made in lots of Young men make the acquaintance of the gentle man for the sake of the Thev will come up to his rooms after alittle they may Kike a hand at Then you see a young girl can get round a loung flat with some pililul story other and get a loan from him to tneet some when the time pets near for she may take a fancy to afew things from jewelers andhave them sent to choose Altogether there it no end of money to be made if the game is pluved I see But your coming The other smoked in silence for two or three Twentyfive hundred he idd at is a tidy bat it would not gofar if vou we thinking of doing anything with the cwAU yon would have move It wouldnt do to bide too lone They are up to most I can tell and4hey would think no more of shooting a man they bad suspicion of false than you would of eating your Stores are paying well became there U a crowd of people going through to the and most of tiiem lay in their stores for the but twentyfive hundred dollars would go no way towards a If I were to sell out I could with what I could get for this place and what I have got me put as much more Still five thousand dollars would be no use for a store as would make anything of a I a good deal about going West West tht other repeated doubt to California there is big money to be made out I dont mean in digging for but in a place like that it dont want a deal of A big tent and a few casks of spirits and a stock of cheap wines and some tables and benches is about all but that would be too much for me by the time I had made thf fourney your money and mine I dont know as we mightnt manage and if we could it ought to pay big I could run the you could work the card rig in a room and if the girl is as goodlooking as you say she she would fetch them in crowds if she looked alter the There are no end of mining I and the miners just chuck their and one could move off from one to another when we found the game playing It sounds a good Warbles but it is a long isnt it its a long theres no denying but there are hun dreds of people starting every and lots of mem succeed as well as Mostof them go by the South ern I am told it is a much better way to go up the river by steam er to a place called which is growing into a big and strike across from It is not the but the I am thinking I only intended to stop for a difference will that make You want to get I suppose you would get so much in a week there as yon would in a month by your which might be cut short any and you find yourself with your hair cropped and in for five from what I have there are men coining out there at drink ing and after two or three years of it we might cut it and go home and keep raeehbrses of our own if we I will think it It is a biggish thing to but there ought certainly to be money in As you say there is no chance of five but seems to me what I have heard of it there isa goodish chance of a pistol bullet or a stab of the bowie I expect all that there is exaggerat ed besides the rows are betweenthe men that drink and not between those sell drink as to the cards there is no occasion to do hankvpanky with unless you see you have got a greenhorn to deal with and the chances are The cards pay any how they bring men into the place and they help to Bell the I will think it Warbles I am getting tired of doing nothing all day how I shall get through three or four months of it than I can Perhaps I might as well do this as anything The girl would certainly be useful To tellyou the is pretty difficult to and I am not sure she might not after a time kick over the traces altogether but I dont think she would mind what are talking about I am sure it will be more to her taste than the I will cotue in again in the morning it is too big a thing to decided on straight Warbles went back to his A girl was standing at the looking out Upon the round as he have you settled she II am sick of doing noth but just thinking and Care killed a the man said Thinking is a pure waste of I have bad a long talk with and he has put an entirely new idea into my An honebt she You may scarcely believe but are my dear it is a strictly honest The girl looked at him let us hear what it she said you promised me the other should be tire I did not believe and told you I shall find it hard to believe that there is not something crooked about this there isnt it just honest trade and he repeated the conversa tion he had had with omit all allusions to his skill Her face brightened as he got to everyone and not to give a smile more to one than to another not to give one the right to think that he hag or cause him to believe that toother has a better one than he I think that rather too Sal I have always been kind to ta no occasion to have any lying between she broke Why yon took me up and paid for me for I dont and I dont ever shall but at any I know you well enough to be that it wag not out of pure kind If it bad would you have put me into the hands of a woman who was always drunk Would yon have left me to be brought up in that to grow np a young who might any day have taken off and hanled before Do you think I am such a fool as to swallow that Then came the time when yon took me I yon look me I saw that you said to She will v What I was to do for yon I neither knew nor You said you would have me was enough for Then I had three quiet and I made the most of You told me something that first day about expect ing me to be useful to and when the time came I carried out your It was only right to do BO yon had bought my It was a but dont let us call it anything From the first yon had an object in Bar ing me from starving or from the work and I you thought that object was worth spending money But certainly the object wag not kind Yon were always kind when yon came to see me once a week all the time I wag with that and itis for that more than for anything else that I am ready to help you to carry out your but I dont want to be altogether at your still less at the mercy of the man you are going to takf as a part I will work with not under I dont want to interfere in your and as you would two one of course you would overvote me if I Still it will give me a better posi tion if it is known that I am your part ner and not your and Ishall know that I cannot be cast off or thrown aside and left alone and and that I ii I wash my hands of I would not mind Warbles after sitting rubbing his chin for some I not mind your having a third of the and I think that would be fair enough seeing that you would put in a third of the capital and as you rightly we consider that you would prove a great Kelp to But suppose you took into your bead to where should we be then The girl waved her hand am not likelv to she So you think at and so a good many other girls have there it I have got to put the matter before Murdoch and it has got to be put in a business Would be if we agree with you as long as you remain usyou take a third share of the in case of your leaving either to marry or for any other to forfeit your third concern Yon see if you werent to do your if you had might set bimselJ as third owner1 or supposing you did not you might get a good offer for your share and sell and that would not be fair on that would not be would agree to I am to be joint proprietor with you to take my third of the profits to Ob what I but if I leave you I forfeit all I have in the We will have the agreement made before a As far as I am there shall be two copies made one I will take with the other I shall leave with so that if byany chance I lose mine I shall be able to prove iny Of will to keep us be the sooner we are off the i suppose yon know pretty well what the things people take with them It ft generally about the same tea and mo and baking ofcpnrie we snail want pounds of salt and some pepper and and a of salt That fills the brace Doltsthafs you bowie which is nandy for all sorts of I have got The first thinn to do is to have this agreement made I can find a man it That wont The rirl said this morning that she should ask the land lord of the hotel for the name of one of the most respectable lawyers in the place and ehafl gb with na when we give our instructions to t Murdoch said she must be chock full of good It is clear that getting over her ene is yon quite right for the man I was thinking of going to might not have taken sufficient care of her And he winked at his as is what she no Warbles in aninjured After all I have done for it is hard to be distrusted must I should migntily as yon all you have done for She said when came out shed eel the name and address before I come and that I had better bring you with so that we could go together at Yon had better tog yourself up I should think You are such a respectablelooking that 4 ain t fit to walk down the street with let alone to be introduced to a young just look at that paper for a few Warbles sat down and amused himself until Murdochs return in watch ing the young man in charge of the bar having been up till 4 oclock in the was now languidly wiping down the decanting liquids from onebottle to washing generally setting things over here shows that tie game can be cut is the game I am going tc play when 1 go We viorked in a ditlvrent direction last time and brought it I think we might have Biuely but I cadpar reaKpns for wanting to cet her out of the as I tell you I ran off the track and came over Do you think that game could played here Kot the other At some of the summer resorts it might be but it conl i not last There aint enough big towns and places to work in besides at our hotels aint the same chance of getting to know people that there ii at or in or in those People ait down to a little table to themselves to tboir and there is no sort of eneral meetine You would at went That will she said I should say that will do When I was a young un 1 used to peep in at the doors of big public I used to think the women behind the bars Bad a fine time of I should not think so not in a big in places like oiit would be different I should like the too it wouldbe like going with which I used to think would be the happiest life in tht I was alraid when we got out here vou would be wanting to do another thing like the and I would not have helped any not till we were getting down to our last But I like the thought of and I will dor my best for suppose thev are a wild lot out but I think 1 can take care of But this I shall want a share I am not going to work for years and then be thrown over when it suitscyoui I will have my share of the profits paid over to me once a week oronce a month at the and will put it away where 1 How much are yon going to put into this thiu6 1 told him 1 could manage five hun and he said he could do the hat I doubt whether that will be enough to curry it out you have got two thousand left You said vou would go halves with I dont want but give me live hundred and yon can tell this man that I have got that mouev of my own and am ready to put it in with yoursi but that lam going an even 1 know you are calculating that my good will and no doubt they 1 am not a can what you are after and I can that it wont be an easv game for nie to These with their pistols and their are not like the young fellows who come into a London They will be in real earnest out andit Will be a dan gerous puna to play with One I have jo fear with papa no man would wrong his but when thereis a third person in the matter it is as well that one should look after ones Warbles with difficulty repressed an angry ejaculation he was so impressed with the value of his aJlv that he mastered himself and said with an attempt at a I had no idea you weresuch a businesslike young I have always hud to take care of aaood she and I mean to do so as as I No wit is time logo down to I think then we might go fora driveand have a Ibok at the Are you going to see your friend again today I told him I must think the mat ter over and see whether you like the idea before I decided one way or the Joe Murdoch offered no objection whatever when Warbles informed him ol the conditions on which alone they had adopted an other name when booking for New Or to join in the It is her I that she puts in he It is her half of the last thinK we pulled well it is hers it is only lair that she should have a You were quite right in insisting that if she left us she should share in Idont like her any the worse for being able to look after her own One a longheaded girl for this business a weak who would be ready to throw herself away on the first goodlooking miner with his pockets well would be of no use to us at One thatwould be inclined to flirt and left might be worse for there would be a shootingaffair in the place in no One wantsjust what I think by your account of what she a clever who has the wit to see that the best game is to steer clear them show nx preference to and to give one an excuse for being She is exactly the one i think even better of thing T did The extra five hundred will make all the difference in our outfit I should would take us five hun dred to but then we should have tlie wagon and and thev would do to take the tent or the frame and boardings of the house to work backwards and forwards to the nearest town for spirits and and would pay its expenses by hauling things for I reckon it is a firstrate Where would yon buy the outfit we can 8et wagon in nieces all numbered and ready to put together when get to We shant want a very heavy cne as there are only three of We had better buy borees hare there is no Eayins how much we might have to pay at or what would be better I can send a letter by a boat that starts this to a man I who has Jarm near the last steamboat about a hundred miles this gide of and give him a commUsion to buy me four of the strongest horses he can get and to drive them to Omaha so as to meet na by next Thurbdayi When Murdoch appeared hV was and Warbles looked at him approvingly This is my English I have not put it on ten times since I came You people here mostly wear either black or with waistcoats cut low so as to show a lot of white of course as a rule it dont dp to look peculiar there is rather a prejudice against Britishers down and it down the wrong If yoii dress as other people and keep a quiet tongue in your yon have a good chance of steering clear of Of course you cannot always do that when you are ruuhing a hereyou can do fairly well if you keep your eyes open and act according to II it is a great big swaggering sort of bully who gets drunk and kicks Up a I have pistols always handy be hind the and when I jump over with one in each hand I can generally get him put as quiet as a If I see that it is a regular hard a means downright lie low and take no only send ing out my man quietiy to fetch a con As a rule he never finds one still it makes all the If there is a man shot and an inquest the next morning I atn able to prove that I did my best to put a the and so I get oft without being blamed for a New Orleans jury are not fools enough to suppose any oneis going to shove himself between two angry men when their hands go to their When they arrived at the Warbles asked his companion to stop outside while he fetched the girl John Murdoch had been prepared to see a goodlooking young but he was completely taken back by the appearance of the girl who came out with He had been on racecburges long enough to be able to distinguish a when he saw and he at once decided that this jcirl wouldvpass for one She was well but quietly hada graceful walk and a good while her face was My he muttered to wherever did Warbles pick her up 7 This is Joe Linda the name of Sally had beendropped as being vulgar and from the day her training had This is my adopted Glad to meet I am with a humility alto gether uncommon to I am verv glad to think that we are going to travel Miss Myrtie I shall be glad to travel This seems to me a dreary Not dreary when yon know it far from It is a stirring except in the old French but one wants to know Wetook a drive Linda and it seems to me that it is the worst smelling and most unhealthy sort of place I was ever I cant say much for it in that and oticiisionaltv we get yellow fever here but I have never hsd an attack Whose office are we going Warbles I wish you would call me the latter said there is no pood in calling up that old name We are goingto Linda quietly this is the streetI I got the directions how to find it at the He is a respectable Lam Very much Miss quite I believe that is a very jharp fellow too and it is not always the two things go He was price to fired upon by an umpire agreed upon by have question to the jprl said Would sucha deedas thiii rendered useless orInvaUdif the names one or motoof the parties were not thoie properly belong ing to them lawyer looked at Jt would certainly be verrdeefiable that the real names should would notbe indispen sable if the Identity of the parties with those named could toeproved for instance if yon were to come here to prove the deed Iconld testiffcthat you were the lady who signed Tte Linda and that under that name for yon registered the and were generally Did you wish to prove it elsewhere yon would take an affidavit that yon were the per son designated and known as Linda TMd you sign under your real whatever it might it would be just as difficult for you in California to prove that you were entitled to as to that under which yoa Yon I to continue to pass under the name and wfll be gen erally known by in case of necessity you might write to me and lorward your likeness and I conid then make an affidavit to the effect that the original of that portrait was the lady my presence signed the deed of partnership under the name of Linda We should each wish to have copies of the deed of and I desire that a fourth copy may be this I shall request yon to hold in cljarge for so that in case I should at any time lose or be deprived of my copy I should by applying to yon be able to ob tain another Twill certainly do Miss and I think it a very wise precaution on your I wul have the draft ready this the lawyer said I shall be glad if you will call in at 3 o clock to see if it meets your joint i and if I will have the deed lahould not have given yon credit being so which will be a very short four times in readiness for the signa tures iu the What did you want to go on like this Linda Warbles as he went out into the the man will suppose that you suspect UB of some plot to rob I dont suspect anything particu but there is nothing like having things put on a satisfactory I see that our interest that we should act square to each and I certainly see no reason whatever why you should wish to get rid of no one can say what After I am only ensuring to myself my share of the profits so long as I do my share of the business as well as I I should think from what you have seen of my powers of yon can rest well assured that I shall do it very I want to indepen and I will be I dont know of this place we are ebing except that the men are rough and and I if after two or three months trial I find the life altogether unbear to be able to with money enough in my pocket topay iny fare to San if not and to be able keep myself until I can find some You are right Misa Joe Murdoch broke and I havent the leastfeeling against you for what said and I like yon all the better that you can for and though am not much of a fighting man I will promise you I will stand out there whatever Any man that says a word to yon that he ought not to Bay I will reckon with I aint a straight man myself and never have been since I was a by I would be cut in pieces rather than see anything happen to a girl that is as straight as you Thank she quietly holding outher baud to I did not know yon but now thatI do I feel that there is no occasion for me to have that fourth copy You have it Miss it is best it shouldI might go under Bob might get another or he might go under and I might get and in either case it would save trouble if you have your rights clearly marked out and set Let us go downto the hig comrade changing the conver is all as good as settled and we may as well begin to get the How will it take us It would take more than two Joe There are big here where we an every we We could go by the boat tonight if we wanted but we dont want In the first place I have gotto settle about selling my and in the second the order for the horses ia only going by tonights and it aint no manner of use our fetting into harbor before they t would cost us twice as much to in a where every square foot occupied than it would f for iu after seeing the girl into the they turned away I dare lay Softness aint much in my but that girl fetched me al Here she rightaway from England and without a friend in the and she speaks out as firm and ai brave as if she had twenty men ready to help her within If she had been one of the crying sort she would nave got no pity from but she regu lar my breath away when she and I says to ray She has rwt be ridden on asnaflle just touch the curb and she will bolt with you and will break your neck as said for all is just the girl for what we and if she findg we treat her well and act square by her she will act squareby She will keen them all at a and keep her head straight all the time only yon will have to humor I dontknow where you picked her but I should wager a dol lar toa cent that she is thorough would not have said so if vou had seen her three years and a half ago when I picked her out from a slum in I might not have said so that is hkely enough one cant always tell whether a yearling is going to turn out and a good many who think they are clever Ret sucked in over it a man who has an eye to horse flesh can tell whether a threeyearold is Well bred or and I guess I am not far out with this I am struck over It is not often that or men either for that get on the sort side of You know pretty well that I wasnt afraid of running a bit of risk in the old and you may guess that this country doesnt make a baby of I have seen pis tols and knives out pretty often since I came and would use them myself uvv VUVUA if there was any and I guess that if we ever get into a mess you will find 1 shall play my part as well as you dp only I want it plainly understood that in this job we are going in for lam ready to go through it whatever but I am fixed iu my mind that we are going to act straight to that Who wants not to act straight the other Havent I brought all the wav out here be cause I thought she would be useful Couldnt I have slipped away with all the pot we had and left her be hind me if I had wanted to And who is talking about my not acting sauare with her how That is right we wont quarrel over So that we three act straight to each other all round lam They did not get away from New Or leans as soon as they had Ihe various purchases were all made in ample but the business of dispos ing of Murdochs saloon was not so speedily He suggested that the other two go on by the Mississippi and that he should follow by the next bnt Truscott was against A week wont make much difference one way or the be It ia better that we should keep You are more up to the routes here suppose they will change our tickets for those of next weeks boat There will be no difficulty about that I could change them in five min There are lots of people who could not get berths in and have bad to take them in the next and thejr would jump at the chance of going It was not until they had been at New Orleans nearly three weeka that Mur dochs business was finally arranged and everything was ready for a Truscott was in no particular hurry he had been accustomed to do a great deal of aimless loafing about during hia and found plenty to amusa looking at the bnsy scene by the river but at last all was and their goods were all on board tie steamer that wad gjEart on the following morn with his father the old man died two and now the young one has got it all his own He does all the best shipping On entering they found that Searle and were at once shown into his B We wish a of partnership drawn put between John that is Linda Myrtle and Joseph Each of the1 three parties agrees to put in the sum of five hundred which is be jointly expended on the journey to and on starting and on a saloon or other establishment the profits to each of the three parties becoming absolute i possessor of his or her Inthe event of Linda Myrtle marrying or leaving the for any reasons she is to forfeit all share in the property or effects of the partner The lawyer listened Do either of the other similarly torfeit their share on leaving tneoartnersblp No bnt it might be as well to put in a clause that in the event of his doing so the partner remaining hag the first to stop confoitably in an hotel I shall not be Ibng in getting rid of mv Two or of the men who use it have asked me at one time or an other what I would take to clear out of It is handy for the and I do a fairish trade with sailors of an it would take a day or two to arrange and it will never do to look as if one was in a they thoneht I wantedto clear out they would not offer half the sum they would if they thought that I did not care one way or the other about making a walked along the wharves look ing at the There are plenty of them goingup the Murdoch but Thursdays boat is the first that goes up to and is about as close as we can cut It is Monday and the day is pretty gone I reckon I shall want all the time Tor carrying out my will go now and seo one of the chaps I spoke At 3 oclock we have got to meet at that and then if you like we will go and get our and take our I have got more than enough money to pay tor my If you will take my yon will go back to the hotel and overhaul your things and see what yon want tor the You will want some good strong plain dresses and serviceable things for it is a rough business I can tell You want a store of all sorts of little and likey needles and threadand all that sort of and plenty of stout shoes that will bear You must remember yon wonft see a shop for four five months bnt remember yon take the as I have heard that many a wagonload of emigrants goingacross the plains have had to chuck every thine and food all except a sack of so as to lighten the wagons when the horses not that it would be wiser towrite lor six or better still for two mulerfior wheelers and four It may cost bit but it will make things more easy and give us a better chance of getting to the end of bur journey with all our All Joe you know more of these things than I If yon think six are order I suppose the we shall get out There is a New York steamer signalled coming Murdoch as they stood together smoking on one of the She will be in bv 5 It is the Savannah she is a smart and I guess she has made the passage down in four or five days quicker time than you I am glad sha is in before we I dare she will have papers from England a good week later than any we have cot It is as well to get the last news while we We shant have the chance for some months care for English papers I look at thenvbecause sometimes an English skipper or mate comes into mv and when they find I am a countryman and know something about the they will put a jew dollars on some horse or otlier for the If the newsis expected in before they sometimes they will turn to the English paper and pick out a horse just for the fun of the thing for some other race of which tlie news ought to be in a day or and put i wo or three dollars on If it was not forrthat I should never take the trouble to look at though Ialways took them in the It was not long before a steamer appeared from a distant turn of the as she came up to the city the two menValked down to the where she would and where a crowd of idlers like themselves had already As she wharped a sudden ex clamation and nervously grasped hia companions What is up the ktter asked Confound there is no occasion to grip a man like that I thought for a moment a big dog had got hold of What is the matter with you Truscott had pulled his hat far down over his Do you see that man the hur ricane with bis hands in his pockets smoking a I sec him fast enough he is an one can tell with half an what about him Take a good look at him so as to know him and then let as get out o this and I will tell Murdoch took another look followed his companion OOJ yett look as if you fiSdtfcad a be when tbev bad moved a hundred yards I have seen took like that when they have had everv penny they awn in the world on the favorite and has not even been I feel something like I believe that fellow is on my You do how can that How can he have followed vou here That is more I can but it dont much matter if he has followed Are you sure it is the man Quite I am a good band at One wants to be when one is a bookmaker and dont always find it con venient to pay I saw that man at t

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
