THE FORD BOYS. A Times Reporter Interviews Them at Chicago. "WVant to see the Ford boys? Why, of course; just follow me." And the Times reporter picked his way along a narrow passage and stood behind the : scenes of a State street variety theatre. Bob, whose pistol-shot rang through the United States a few months ago, has I been described be.:re, and by the des criptions recently telegraphed to the pa pers; no one would fail to recognizehim. A slim, smooth-faced boy of 20, with short, dark hair, gray eyes and regular features, he hardly realizes in his ap pearance the beau ideal of the dime-novel reader. Quiet and reserved in his man ner, he impresses one favorably, but it was the very SARCASM OF FATE permitted a lad like that to send a bullet through the brain of Missouri's outlaw. "You felt pretty nervous when you got the drop on Jesse ?" "Well, I couldn't miss him. He was standing on a chair almost as close to me as I am to you. He turned his head when my pistol clicked, and the ...

THE MYSTERIES OF THE SURF. A 8outhern Visitor's Experiences and Re flections. Surf bathing is a revelation! 1 went in with a lovely and modest woman from the North, with whom I had but a short acquaintance, although I had seen a good deal of her. As we stood await ing the coming of a huge wave she clutched my arm, and poising herself on one foot, bended the other leg, and pull.d her stocking over her knee-try ing vainly to make it cover :t strip of white. She thought nothing of this, neither did I. In an instant the wave was on us, and we were riding the swell as happy a s a pair of ducks. That evening this lady went sailing with the same party that had been bath ing with her in the morning. As she stepped over the side of the boat she ex )posed about four inches of her pretty silk stockings, and her face was crinm soned with shame and mortification. Now, why this difference? It was ex actly the same limb that had been ex posed to the knee all the morning with out any thought of' co...

A LETT R EROMl BEDPFOD. d Removing County Seats Changing County ) Boundaries-Various Matters of Interest Referred to. BEDFORD, M. T., Aug. 23, Editnrs of the River Prewas: As there is a scarcity of wheat and flour in the Missouri valley, I thought it best to put up at the Bedford hotel for the present. Bedford has the reputation of having a vigilance committee, but I don't believe that such an organization has ever existed in this place. J. J. Bunde, a steady, quiet man of this place deals out justicoe to all offenders in such a manner that they soon learn that the way of the transgressor is hard. A disorderly drunk was arrested here a few evenings ago and held over until the next morning for trial. The prisoner promptly disgorged Ai:ty-two dollars for the privilege of borrowing a silver watch from an acquaintance, and when re quested to give it back threw it on the floor and jumped on the watch and broke it all to pieces.
