It is of one of these unknown and unhoaored heroes I wish to his name is Pat Durack. Everybody from the Pecos to the Yaqui knows him; he has lived so long in that section that he has forgotten when 3e first breathed the aroma of the Mesquile or washed down the "reu f re" of the Mescal with the turbid water of fhe Rio Grande. His hearty words of good cheer and happiness or friend have made his name the synonym of all those vir- tues that draw the affections and confidence of men that recognize those manly qualities, the attributes of many in the borderland. I met him recently, when by the 1'ght of fhe moon, I was wandering around a little Mexican village en- deavoring to secure a place for a Right's repose; with his usual large heartedness. when he learned of my quest, virtually seized upon me and though generally an American is treated by the courts with greater consideration than a Mexican. Judge Core was ready, act I pre- sumed he -would be, to listen to a 1'ioposal and finally agreed to ac- cept a if being understood that in consideration of 5200 he would use his good offices to have the execution delayed at least two clays. It was the rainy season and Utterly cold in crossing the moun- tains but I got on very well until I reached the Yaqui river, towards morning, which was a raging torrent I saw the light of a camp fire on the opposite side of the river and finally by much shouting, aroused the camp- ers, who proved to be a couple of American cowboys who were out on prospecting trip. I explained as as the roaring of the river would permit, the nature of my Mission and because certain destruc- tion seemed to be awaiting me if I attempted to cross, begged them to carry my message to C-ises Graudes and then to Juarez, and save the men's lives, if possible. To this they demurred and finally refused. It was up to me then to cross the lived with all the chances against eucceeding. If I missed the opposite landing, the stream below was a huge cataract through which no man or horse could, with the river at its then present height, hope to pass alive. Calling the cow punch- ers to help me if they could, I went ;ip the river for a considerable dis- tance in order to get the advantage of the current, stripped off my cloth- es, tied them to the saddle, drove the horse in and together with one with which I swam with ti'e horse, and holding on with the ether, started across. We missed tne lauding, as I feared, and were being swept down stream when one of the punchers, throwing out his rope, fortunately dropped it over the horn tf the saddle and together they man- sged to drag us back to the landing.
