BUEjVS' adventure  In the early '70's three trad-  ��������� ers, and myself,' (Burns), went  in the wilds from Trauson, Arizona, taking with us" a    pack  train of mules loaded with good  suitable for trade, with Apache  - Indians.    Our. expedition proving very successful; the-Indians  not molesting us, because ifthey  did so they would lose the opportunity of obtaining the coveted goods of the ''White Man"  in the.future.    One day an Indian brought us the uniform of  an army officer, punctured with  a bullet hole, and stained   with  . blood. Of course we refused the I  but the younger man was un  armed.     As I was clearing a-  way after dinner, both of the  Indians walked into  the tent.  At the end of the tent was a  partly used sack of 'flour, from  which I had been taking flour  while cooking dinner;  leaving  the mouth open.    The. old Indian thought the bag of flour afforded a good seat, and sat down  upon it.    Unluckily, for us the  first to notice it, was Tex who  first noticed the Indian sitting  oh our flour:   before any one  could prevent him he dealt the  old man a blow that felled him  to the ground. ��������� The Indian was  to his feet in an instant   and  cocked his rifle; but before he  could shoot Tex grabbed    my  sixshooter from my belt; shooting the Indian through the head  who ran some thirty yards before his nose ploughed the dirt  The younger Indian was game  in a twinkling; running for the  animal, cutting a portion.off the  end of the lariatt, I made a sort  of haulter, or bridle; but when  i tried to mount the- beast I "encountered more difficulties. His  back was gauled and sore from  the pack saddle, and he instantly bucked me/off breaking the  stalk of my rifie.    With considerable, difficulty I    lashed   the  weapon securely    to iny back,  and finally succeeded in mounting the aninial. There was supposed to be but one trail out of  the  country, . /which    I knew  would be beset by .the Indians;  but some traders we had met  previously, had described to me  an old Spanish trail which led  out to Albueq.uerke, New Mexico..
