His guide lying Oil to i. I1. Of Cut Hough in Camp i the Short of Moos head hike came Tho scream of a hear somewhere off in tiie dark Forest. It was a queer that was much like i lie shrill Call of to in ii or. With to rising in Lection at the Ini. With which new England Lanu summon Tho men from the Fields to the Noonday meal it was rope used several time a intervals and came each Iuie from nearer the Vamp. The Pride got up and went out to the Maple Grove a few rods away tool Down a limb the Buck that was hanging there dragged it Boarer the lamp and Hung it up to a tree within Plain sight of the doorway. A a Wien to know that a Bear is prowling round it to have our Venison where we Cau s. A to said. Quot to won t Couie so near the Camp hut if we left the meat. At among the Maples he d be ape spoil so of it before morning. A Bear is a hungry creature and will eat about everything from Honey to Carrion a stale Salt Mackerel will draw one farther than anything i at he is shy about coming around Camps where people Are. You la see that lids one w ill Quot to m a enough to Hud out that there Are people Here and Beu will go Tho new yorker was for going out to try a shot at the Bear but the guide told him that it was of no use. A bks win t come into View he said Quot and i you show yourself at the door lie la not come within ride shot. Keme Miu r that he can s. E in Tho dark but unless you should get a glimpse of his eyes you could t distinguish him among the shadows five Steps away. Just listen and to May hear the new York Man Lay Down again upon the houghs. The scream came euro again close at hand and after that was heard no More. Presently the guide lifted his h. And Ltd signalled the new re or that to should listen. There was �1 sound us crackling twigs and rustling 1 uses somewhere outside the on space in front the Mauiu. But no noise footfalls. Then came a Little Sharp sound of snuffing Aud after that the noise of something moving through the bashes again. The snuff us and Beu the moving i again kept tip until the Bear compact. By circled Ruud the Camp Aud then the sounds from him died away. Ruiu had found out All he wanted to know about the Camp decided that Venison tin re was Likely to conic too High in the Way of risk in it. And gone away without showing himself or exposing his skin the any greater risk than that of a random shot. A that s the Way with observed Meserve As the two Nuu lighted their pipes. A you almost never get a shot at one unless you Cuico him swimming a Pond and in that Case Yon want to make sure of your shooting or hell come aboard your Loat which makes things bad or run him Down with dogs which is expensive for Tho More valuable Tho Dag the More certain he is to get killed. It s Only Tho cars that will Yap at Tho bears heels Aud ran Nav when by turns on them that escape damage in a Bear Chase Aud. Once in sight of the Bear they re the most us. Ful too. Tin. Hear is like what i have read of elephants. To Cau c hear the sound of a Little d. G snapping behind him Aud keeps turning round to drive him o t and so gives the Hunters 8 Chance to conic up. Quot there was one Bear that stayed round this Shore for years and to gave fishermen no end of trouble by robbing their Camps who n they were out on Tho Lake fishing. To numbered them worst in Tho Early Spring when they cume up to the lakes to Misli through the Ico. It was Bouc that time that the Bear would come out from his Winter s Sloop lean Aud hungry Aud it tool a Heap to fill him up. To was a Gri at traveler and before the fishing season coded he would be heard of from one end of Tho Luko to to other. They could Tell thar it was one Bear that did the business for this Ono had a Fen with some i f tiie toes gone and the trucks about Tho Camp always showed this Mark. Quot this Bear run his Rig up Aud Down Tho Lake for three years without getting into trouble. Us came to grief at last in a a not Way. A Man named Silas Thompson camping Uluao on the East Shore of thu Lake was out on tin Ico minding his Linos one March Lav and Thi Ming How to would have to go Home i fun r than to had intended owing to an Acci Dout that had happened that morning at his Camp. In some Way to had dropped his rum Jug mud broken it in two or three places. There was a bottle with some molasses in it standing by the fireplace by grabbing up the Jug quickly mid Bolding it Over the Boc to lie manage i to save a quart or two of ram in Tho Shupa of 4bla"k strap a that s Tho of Maine name for rum and molasses mixed together Aud it s an , lie had just made up his mind to go to the Camp to try a Little of the mixture when lie saw u Bear coining out Oil the ice from that direction and i to Bear was staggering drunk. It had broken into tiie Camp and was drunk on Silas Thompson s and molasses. The hear Aldu i seem to know where he was at or win re he wanted logo and while he floundered round on Tho ice Thompson Luule a circuit past him. Got to the Camp Aud Ca lie Back with his gun Aud shut him. It proved to he Tho Bear that Hud robbed the fishermen s Camps so Long. He died Happy Aud Tho usher eur a troubles were ended so far As he was concerned. Famous three 1c�. To originator of Tho famous three a or Quot alliteration Quot Reading i thug Aud a arithmetic a was sir Curtis a lord mayor of Loudon. In 1795 he proposed it us a Toast before the Hoard of thu cation. Where women Rule. Liat a Suc in Sui u it i ,.l in an kit Cra la a of Litchi. While studying social conditions in Oriental Laud 1 or. Auto 1. Stockham was advised by t. to visit the Nairas i n the Malab a exist of India Aud witness a Type of civilization unknown elsewhere among Tho inhabitants of Earth. Here according to a writer Tho husband is n Mere incident in Tho social organization. Woman s Power is autocratic Aud absolute a she wins or divorces a husband at will. She frames and administers the Laws he which lie lives Ulm through her is to descent of Tho property which lie May earn hut not own. Tho Ricot Leld is his Active Arena mid if industrious Aud frugal proving himself cd Diatlo of maintaining a family some Nair maid invites him to become her husband. Tho successful Man of eligible years is wooed and won As is Tho fortunate mud accomplished Maiden of our country. Tiie impropriety of manifesting affection for a woman Defuro it is solicited is thoroughly instilled into Tho mind of Tho Nair Man and while the strife Between natural tendencies Aud National custom May sometimes approach the nature of an irrepressible conflict to yield is ruin and humiliation irreparable. The eligible Bachelor must await no avowal of Lovo Aud Choice mid suffer in silence if it be Long withhold. The Nairas Are of Hahman origin and much above the average inhabitants of India in intelligence Mill ill the administration of their native government. Hotter native schools Are found Here than elsewhere in India and a surprising degree of Domestic kept Lilivau. Cake walk is French. When it it aug stood for n mar Row be ceremony. The cake walk properly Hud its origin among the French negroes of Louisiana More than a Century ago. There is Little doubt that it is i offshoot of some of the old French country dances. It resembles several of them in form. From now Orleans it spread Over the entire South and thence North. It was found of convenience to the Plantation negroes. They were not wedded by License and it was Seldom that tiie services of n preacher were called in. At a cake walk a Man might legitimately show his preference for a woman Aud thus publicly claim her for a wife. In effect the cake walk was not different from the old co thu marriage which required Only Public acknowledgement from the contracting parties 8o this festival became in some sense a wooing an acceptance or rejection and a ceremony. This explains its popularity with the Blacks outside of its beauties with the accompaniment of music which is competent at All times to command negro support. Cake walking Lias improved As do most things that Are constantly practice. It Lias its old significance in Tho South. Neeri is now get married when they marry at All. In the White folks fashion. It Lias however become a pantomime dance. A Ruperly performed it is a Beautiful one. The cake is not much of a prize though the negro lies a Sweet Orleans times Democrat. Fort-1 from Mclien la Ichiho. The miners As Well As Tho mine owners operating it Northern Idaho Are peculiarly interested in rational and effective methods i f Forest Protection to what remains of the Public Timber lauds Aud As producers of National wealth have a right to demand it. They have the result of years of Wanton Forest destruction before their eyes Aud can Sec Teui Shives confronted with a Timber shortage before Many years that threatens their commercial and Industrial life. That such a condition is fast approaching needs no prophetic Visico to foresee. The extent of burned Forest Laud Tho past Lei years As developed in these to pious is an evidence that requires no supporting argument to make effective. That Many thousands of acres of Forest still exist in the Unrur do Alene basins does not weaken Tho fact of an impending Timber shortage. Under the present Cou Ditimus two or three dry seasons would inf ii of to wipe out the larger portion by far of remains of the forests in this part of the state.

Much opium is imported. It is to Neil heavily but it victims must have it us any Frier. The extent to which opium smoking is practice by thu chinos in this country May to judged from Limo fact thai Tho importations of smoking opium at this port last Var aggregated 121,401 pounds. Tho drug at 98 u Pound amounted to 9728,40�. The drug was in thu form prepared exclusively for smoking Aud not available fur any other uses. It comes ill rectangular tin boxes not unlike those ill which i poor and spices Are put up each containing about half a Pound. So prepared opium is a Sumii fluid Lurk Brown Sticky substance resembling new Orleans molasses in up pour Naticc. Oha Unicey m. 9t. John Deputy Surveyor of the port says that of the imports of this sort of opium at Sau Francisco since Jan. 1 last to Date duty has been paid to thu amount of 81411,fill. This would represent 21,380 pounds of to drug. By Tho steamship of Tiuliu arriving from China on feb. 13, Tho opium imports inn Iutok to is.333 pounds 0 1 which the duty paid was 9110,000. Net including this Large Quantity Tho smoking opium now in bonded warehouses hero on which duty of $121,880 bus not been collect us amounts to 20,313 pounds. It is believed that opium smoking Lias greatly decreased since thu duty was reduced front 99, the former rate to the present rate of $0 u Pound. Formerly Large quantities of smoking opium of an inferior Quality were made in Victoria. B. C., Aud thence smuggled into the United states. Tho reduction of duty. While greatly Lussey Iii thu profits of smuggling left Tho risk Iff seizure mud this tended to discourage Tho victorian Industry which has practically been abandoned. Very Little smoking opium reaches the United states save that which comes to this port from China. It is All made in that country. Tho drug for medicinal uses Conns in its crude form from Turkey. A Little of this raw opium is occasionally imported by Sau Francisco dealers by Way of new York Reu Ehing this City by rail. Tho manufacture of smoking opium in the United states Inis been greatly checked if not Well nigh destroyed by the imposition of us internal Revenue tax of 910 a Pound. To Tux in fact was Laid for the express purpose of discouraging the business. In some Way a report bus gained currency that in attempt a Neil been made to smuggle a Large Quantity of opium into this country in the Guise of Quot nut Oil Quot by Tho ship now York which went ashore at half Moon Bay. The customs officials say there is no foundation for Tho Story so far As they Are Suu Francisco Chru Tielu. A pirates fitting end. The Duc Caucci la Wnm tortured to la Chilli by Lnu Hans. In st.

There his party wus attacked by some spaniards Aud indians who killed Moro Liun half of them mid prevented the others from Landing. L Oln Ulois and thu rest of his men got safely away and they might have sailed Buck to Liliu Island where they had left their comrades for there was now room enough for them All. But instead they went to Tho coast of Curt Gomi. Tho pirates left of Tho Island by their heartless companions were rescued let a a Bucca Neering vessel but had now reached Tho end of his wicked career. Us thu shores where lie lauded lie did nut find Pru sperus villages and peaceful inhabitants to to robbed hut instead 1 0 came upon a fierce tribe of indians called by Tho spaniards a bravos Quot or wild men. These people would never have anything to do with the Whites. It was impossible in Nii Wiur them or to pacify them. Tiluy bated White no n.
