Hin fame HH a inurkHinaTi among the TCXHIIH HOOII becamo notorious In the vicinity of Ooldie'H ranoh hvc<J ono William Dar- rell, or, an ho ^WUH moro familiarly U ruled, Hloody Hill. Thin Hlo<nly Hill wan u noted ruflian and denperudo, a ro4 k klenn <lHre-«Ievil. HIH featu in niark- rnatiHhip were hkewiHc aatpanding, nnd probably no man in tlie Jjone Star Htato excejled him io handling the rifle. Bloody Rill had boon engaged in many deeds of during, and wa* oearhr alwayn mixed up iu aomo row or nquahhle. He had already killed three mon, and hin HUmoronH acts of rufflantHm had made him a terror to tho frontier. Few cared to croft* hin path, an Inn dangerous char- acter and dexterity with tho riflo w#»re well known. Ooldic had met Hill on neveral oocnnioiiH, but had never been involved in any difficulty with him. Knowing hin turbulent diPinwition, he alwiiyn nought to avoid him. On ono Huntiay, however, Ooldio wan flitting in company with a ncoro of Toxaun, when Hill rode up and joined the party. Of lato ho had become quite jealonn of Ooldie'H notoriety HH a inarknman, and had frequently npoken dmparaf<ingly of tho latter. At lant tho Texann began to relate nomo of their rofniniHOO'ieon, and Ooldio cominen< % e«l relating an incident that had occurred to him. Hill, who had drank heavily and become rather moody, in the midnt of the narration Hiiddcnly jumped to bin feet and innultcd Ooldic, at the HAIUO time striking a blow at him. All wan inntantly commotion. The whole party were on their feet and revolvers were drawn. Ooldie demand- ed natinfactiou for the innult, and Hloody Hill, with a ncornful hiugh, HUggofit<Ml that they had better make it a trial of their roHjwvtivo nkdl with the riflo. Tho idea wan caught up by the Texann, and after a nhort conHttltation they ihMMded that a duel nhould be fought, but, in coiiAfy|ti««ncoof the extraordinary nkill of the pnrtien, at a long dintance. On the open pr.iirie, nbout two milen tlintant, grew two jMmt oak treon. They were i'JO pardn apart, and were the *>nly treen on tl-Jit npot. All around wan open, timborlenn nrairie. It wan d«M'idexl tliat Ooldio ai (1 Hill nhotild Ix.th take their nt!o« and en<*h take up a ponition be- hind tho reHpective treen an<l then blazo away at each other, ^iio Texann liope«l by HUH menus to f>re/ent bltHnlnhed, or at leant to prevent a fatal termination to tho duel. The preliminanen being w>tthsl, the whole party mounted their hornon nnd rode out on the prairie to tho niileeted spot. Ooldie U ok up bin t>oni- ton behind one of the treen. aud Bill onMConced himncJf behind the othor. The remaining party of the- crowd then rode to a alight undulating eminence to the ngljt, where thoy wore to remain an HpcctafcorH. Ono of them wnn to give the nigual for tbo beginning of tho con- tent by tiring hiH rifle iu the air, and tho V/HK to be tho signal to the duel- to begin w»th their bh ody work, awaited acxtounly for the det/m- ation of tho riflo, which suddenly sound- ed on the air. Then commenced the duel at the long- f M range ever re<v>rded. Ooldie Advan- ced from ttohind the trw in A kneeling p(*«ttire f whon, whir, f hin nombrero wan perforated by a bftll from Bloodv JMWH rifle.

Quickly taking aim he tired twice in HUCCCHMOIJ arul then rutired behind the. sheltering trunk. O^o of the bnlletH lie afterward diHCovercd had panned through the lobe of HiH'n 1< H ear. There wan a cennMion now of firing for some time, when Ooldie espied htnopponent'K head and nhouldern cx|H>hed. Quick HM lightning hin rifle wasAt JjiMHhoulder, and tho detonating report wan heard. Hloody liiU'n hat wiin carrie<l away by tho bullet.

He beat a hanty retreat. The duehnUt remained gazing at tho dintant tre^x, each watching for tho indistinct form which represented his fulvorsary. Kuch poenvl cautiously from behind the tree, endeavoring to gain sight of the other. Ooldie st lant saw Hill again advance, and the former stepped rapidly to the front and quickly brought bin rifle into position. Alrnont Himultancously the clear, nharp rej>ort of two rifles rang on tho air,.and both men fell Ooldie managed to raino Iiim nelf and crawl behind the trunk of tho tree. HM had been wounded in tho left shoulder. Presently he was JOIIHMI by tho Texans who had boon witnenHen of this mont exciting duel. They hud already ridden over to Hloody Bill and found him dead- a bullet had penetrated his temple. Another wonderful fart connected with Ooldio in that he in jiiht a* good a markn- rnAn and juM an dexterouH with the re volver an he is with the riflo. At nixty pacen he can hit tho center of tlm bull's eye and then put twenty balln in quick HiieeoHHion through the name onflco. A^t forty pacen he can with his revolver knock ofT the anli of n cigar which a geri ticman niay be nnntking, although fct? men have the norve to ntan«l HH the tarr get. Another of hin featn with the re) volver IH tiring at a champagne bottle ajt forty paeon, and with the bullrt <lriv<» the cork into the bottle. In short, his feats with pintol are too numeroiiH t<> mention.
