To Tho ears of to new York sports Man Ami Tom Meserko his Guido lying on Tho bed of Evergreen boughs in Camp on the Shore of Moo Schead late came the scream of a hear somewhere off in Tho dark Forest. It was a queer sound that was much like the shrill Call of a in no a. With a rising inflection at Tho cud. With which now England farm wives summon Tho men from Tho Fields to i tin Noonday meal. It was repeated several rime a intervals Aud Camo each Timo from nearer the Camp. Tho Guido got up and wont out to Tho Maple Grove a few rods away tool Down from a limb Tho Buck that was hanging there dragged it nearer Tho Camp Aud Hung it up to a too within Plain sight of Tho doorway. Whu to know that a boar is prowl ing round in is Well to Havo on Cuison where we pm Seo it. said lie won t come so near Tho Camp hut if to i loft Tho Moa rout among the Maples he d i to ape to spoil some of it before morn ing. A Bear is a hungry creature and will oat about everything from Honey to Carrion i stale Salt Mackerel will draw one farther than anything Eis. But lie shy about coming around Camps where people Are. You la see that this Ono will come near enough to find out that there Are people Here and thou will go away. " Tho new yorker was for going out to try a shot at the hear but the guide told him that it was of no use. To won t come into View anyway he said Aud if you show yourself at the door hell come within ride shot. Remember that to can see in the dark but unless you should get a glimpse of his eyes you could t distinguish him among the shadows five stops away. Just listen and to May hear the new York Man Lay Down again upon the boughs. The scream came Enco again close at hand and after that was heard no More. Presently the Guido lifted his Bead and signalled Tho new yorker that to should listen. There was a sound of crackling twigs and rustling l uses somewhere outside to open Yace in front of the Camp but no noise of footfalls. Then came a Little Sharp sound of snuffing and after that the noise of something moving through Tho Bushes again. The and then the moving on again kept up until Tho Bear had completely circled round the Camp and then Tho sounds from him died away. Eruin had found out All he wanted to know about the Camp decided that Venison tax re was Likely to come too High in the Way of risk in getting it and Gene away without showing him self or exposing his skin to Auy greater risk than that of a random shot. That s the Way with bears observed Meserve As the two men lighted their pipes. Ycu almost never get a shot at Cue unless you catch him swim Ming a in that Caso you want to make sure of your shooting or hell come aboard your boat which makes things Ruu him Down with dogs which is expensive for the More valuable Tho dog the More certain he is to get killed. In s Only the cars that will Yap at the Bear s heels and run away when he turns on them that escape damage in a Hoar Chase and once in sight of the boar they re the most ust Ful too. The Bear is like what i have read of elephants. can t Bear the sound of a Little dc3 snapping behind him Aud keeps turning round to drive him erf Aud so gives the Hunters a Chance to come up. There was Ono Bear that stayed round this Shore for years and he gave fishermen no end of trouble by robbing their Camps when they were out on Tho Lake fishing. us tiered them worst in the Early Spring when they came up to the lakes to fish through the ice. It was about that time that the Bear would conic out from his Winter s sleep loan and hungry and it took a Heap to fill him up. was a great traveler and before the fishing season ended he would be heard of from one end of the Lake to Tho other. They could Tell liar it was one Bear that did the business for this one had a font with some of the too gone arid Tho tracks about Tho can pal ways showed tins Mark. This hear run his Rig up and Down the Lake for three years without get Ting into trouble. Lie came to grief at last in a very queer Way. A Man named Silas Thompson camping alone on the East Shore of the Lake was out on the ice minding his lines one March Day and thi King How he would have to go Home sooner than he had intended owing to an Ace deut that had happened that morning at his Camp. In some Way he had dropped his rum Jug and broken it in two or three places. There was a bottle with some molasses in it standing by the fireplace Aud by grabbing up the Jug quickly and holding it Over the bottle he managed to save a quart or two of rum in the shape of Black strap. That s the 8tt.to of Maine name for rum und Ruo lasses mixed together Aud it s an enticing drink. Lie had just made lip his mind to go to the Camp to try a Little of tiie mixture when he saw a Bear coming out on the ice from that direction and the Bear was drunk. It had broken into the Camp Ami was drunk on Silas Thompson s my and molasses. The hear did t seem to know where i was at or where to wanted to go and while he laundered round on Tho ice Thompson made a Cir Cuit past him. Got to the amp Aud Back with Iii gun Aud shut him. It proved to be Tho Bear that had robbed the fishermen s so Long. Lie died Happy and the fishermen s troubles were ended so far As he was famous three it s.

Era province. While studying social conditions in Oriental hums or. Alice b. Stockham was advised by Tiisto to visit the Nairas on Trio Malabar coast of India and witness a Typo of civilization unknown elsewhere among the inhabitants of Earth. Here according to a writer the husband is a Mere incident in the social organization. Woman s Power is autocratic and absolute. Sho wins or divorces a husband at will. Sho frames Anil administers the Laws by which to lives and through her is the descent of Tho property which he May earn hut own. Tho Rise yield is his Active Arena and if industrious Aud frugal. Proving himself capable of maintaining a maid invites Bim to become her husband. To successful Man of eligible years is wooed and won As is Tho fortunate and accomplished Maiden of our country. Tho impropriety of manifesting affection for it woman before it is solicited is thoroughly instilled into the mind of Tho Nai Armau and while the strife be tween natural tendencies and National custom May sometimes approach the nature of an irrepressible conflict to yield is ruin and humiliation irreparable. The eligible Bachelor must await an avowal of love and Choice Ami Sutler in silence if it he Long withheld. The Nairas Are of Brahman origin and much above the average inhabitants of India in intelligence Aud in the administration of their native government. Better native schools Are found Here Tuliau else where in India and a surprising degree of Domestic Contentment Springfield Republican. Cake walk is French. When it originated it also stood for a so arrange ceremony. The cake walk properly had its origin among the French negroes of Louisiana More than a Century ago. There is Little doubt that it is an offshoot of some of the old French country dances. It resembles several of them in form. From new Orleans it spread Over the entire South and thence North. It was found of convenience to Tho Plantation negroes. They were wedded by License and it was Seldom that the services of a preacher were called in. At a cake walk a Man might legitimately show his preference for a Wom an Aud thus publicly Claici her for a wife. In effect the cake walk was different from the old scotch marriage which required Only Public acknowledge ment from the contracting parties. So this festival became in some sense a wooing at acceptance or rejection and a ceremony. This cd Plains its popular Ity with the Blacks outside of its Beau ties with the accompaniment of music which is competent at a times to command negro support. Cake walking has improved us do most things that Are constantly practice. I has lost its old significance in Tho South. Negroes now get married when they marry at All. In the White folks fashion. It has however become a pantomime dance. Properly performed it is a Beautiful one. The cake is much of a prize though Tho negro fans a Sweet toot new Orleans times Democrat. Forest Protection in Idaho. The miners As Well As Tho mine own ers operating in Northern Idaho Are peculiarly inti rested in rational and effective methods of Forest Protection to what remains of the Public Timber lauds and As producers of National wealth have a right to demand it. They have the result of years of Wanton Forest destruction before their eyes and con see themselves confronted with a Timber shortage before Many years that threat ens their commercial and Industrial life. That such a condition is fast approach ing needs no prophetic vision to foresee. The extent of burned Forest land Tho past 10 years As developed in these re Gions is an evidence that requires no supporting argument to make effective. That Many thousands of acres of Forest still exist in the occur d Alcue basins does weaken the fact of an impending Timber shortage. Under the present conditions two or three dry seasons would suffice to wipe out. The larger portion by far of what remains of the forests in this part of the state. There is yet adequate Protection or super vision and Public sentiment Upu these Points is yet aroused. Forester. An honest ?.ip.-j. Now look Here Thompson re marked drown.

Much opium is imported. It i taxed heavily but its victims must have it at any Price. Tho extent to Winch opium smoking is practice by the chinese in this coun try May be judged from Tho fact that the importations of suit Kiwi opium at this port last year aggregated 121,401. Pounds. Tho drug at a Pound amounted to �728,40 1. The drug was in the form prepared exclusively for smok ing and available for any other uses. It conies in rectangular tin boxes unlike those in which Pepper and spices Are put up each containing about half a Pound. So prepared opium is a Semi fluid dark Brown Sticky substance resembling new Orleans molasses in appearance. Chauncey m. St. John Deputy Surveyor of Tho port says that on Tho imports of this sort of opium at Sau fran Cisco Sinco Jan. 1 last to Date duty has been paid to the amount of $140,341. This would represent 24,300 pounds of Tho drug. By Trio steamship Cache arriving from China on feb. 13, Tho opium imports Namou Tod to 18,009 pounds on which Tho duty paid was �110,000. Not including this Virgo Quantity Tho smoking opium now in bonded Ware houses hero on which duty of $121,s90 has been collected amounts to 20, 31� pounds. It is believed that opium smoking has greatly decreased Sinco thu duty was reduced fro the former Rato to Tho present Rato of $0 a Pound. Formerly Largo quantities of smoking opium of an inferior Quality were made in Vic Toria b. A Anil thence smuggled into Tho United states. To reduction of duty while greatly lessening tins profits of smuggling left Tho risk of seizure undiminished and this tended to Dis courage Tho victorian Industry which has practically been abandoned. Very Little smoking opium reaches Tho United states save that which comes to this port from China. It is All made in that country. Tho drug for Medici Nal uses conies in its crude form from Turkey. A Little of this raw opium is occasionally imported by san Francisco dealers by Way of now York reaching this City by rail. Tho manufacture of smoking opium in the United states has been greatly checked if Well nigh destroyed by Tho imposition of an internal Rev euro tax of �10 a Pound. Tho Tux in fact was Laid for Tho express purpose of discouraging Tho business. In some Way a report has gained cur Rency that an attempt had been made to smuggle a Large Quantity of opium into this country in the Guiso of Oil by Tho ship new York which went ashore at half Moon Bay.
