themselves, have made allotments to
their own members, with only two
dissenters, and they, \\Uh the Miamas
and Peorias, are anxious to inake a
division of the surplus lands and sell
same and make a final settlement
with the government. The Senecas
and the Shawnees of the agency are
mainly desirous of the same advance-

name was Richard Dolong, but known
among his associates as Long Dick.
When the Mexican Central railroad
was tirsl constructed Dick was em-
ployed by the company as a carpen-
ter, and, tho wages being good, he
rapidly accumulated a stake of sever-
al thousund dollars. This done, he
started back for thd states, and as
luck would have it, in a train thai
was held up by bundits. That is to say,
a numbor of bandits bourded a train
at a station and started through th#
Mill two to •Mb ear. to |*ob tli4
passengers. Dick had been in Mexi-
co long enough and understood such
circumstances a* to acquire a violent
prejudice against tho ordinary in-
habitants. it riled him greatly t<f
have ono of them get the drop on
him, and he sat with his hands undor
the muzzle of tho bandit's revolver
as palo as death. When the thief
who was taking the valuables came
to the seat he noticed Dick's pallor,
but mistook it for a sign of fear, and
so, having been very successful so
fur, ho lost bis caution for a moment
and turned his head to call the otkor
bandit's attention to Dick. That
was a very bad mistako for the ban-
dit. The moment ho turned his head
Dick s big fist took him under the
tar. Dick was as strong as an ox,
mid the blow killed the bandit, broke
his neck, they say.
Nevertheless, in falling tho thief's

on the bandit who was on guard,

off t ho train, and then the rest of
the passengers gathered around Dick.
A surgeon found tho bullet was
lodged somewhere in tho muscles of
the back, but had no instruments to
cut it outi So he dressed tho wound
and by tho time Dick got up tho road
to Socorro, N. M., where ho intended
to stop, ho felt so woll that he de-
cided not to havo tho bullet cut out
at all. lie eventually recovered, to
all appearancos, and coming to the

He had been here a few weeks when

word, and both got a good shaking.

ponies know how to do, but both

so nearly oquul that tho contest was
