SAVED FROM DEATH RT PISTOL SHOTS
Long Beach (Cat.) Man Is Seri ously Injured in a Most Peculiar Accident.
ANGRY MULEY COW CHASES MEN UP TREE
TRAPPED ON BRIDGE
Hung With Stiffening Finger# to Slender Iron Rod on End of Big Bascule-—Leg Amputated to Save Life.
Docile "Bossy” Loses Tempef When Sold and Furnishes Amusement for Crowd.
NEVER ENTIRELY WIPED OUT
The Bachelor Survives In Great Numbers, Despite Attacks of Most Skillful Foes.
Winchester, Ind.—A muley cow, hitherto as docile as a lamb, did a circus stunt at RIdgeville the other day and almost frightened two men out of their wits. The men furnished much amusement for a crowd of onlookers and the cow furnished the ex-» citement, which was fast and furious lor some time. Lewis Day had sold the animal to Morris Smithson and when he delivered her he made the mistake of not tying her down to the wagon. When the cow arrived at
Long Beach, Cal.—Edward Markgrai!^ aged thirty, an employe of the Edison power plant on the inner harbor, passed through a thrilling and terrifying exi)€rienco the other night, whlct he will remember to his dying day.
Clinging with stiffening fingers te a slender iron rod on the end of the bascule bridge over the harbor en trance as it rose in air following the passage of a freight train, Markgraff said afterwards that all of his pasa life rose before him and the agonj caused by his fall was soothed bj the thankful knowledge that he wat still alive. Only the presence of mind of his companion Harry Haff, and the quick wit of the bridge tender saved Markgraff from a frightful fall and probable death by drowning.
Markgraff and Haff are employed on the night shift at the Edison company and were on their way to work shortly after midnight and as is theii custom walked across the bascule bridge. They had nearly reached the end, feeling their way along in the darkness, when the bridge tender, be« fore starting on a patrol of the jetties thought to raise the draw in case a boat should seek passage in the channel, it being required to keep the channel open when trains are not using the bridge. Haff felt the premonitor3P shiver of the structure US it responded to the levers and gave a long jump to safety on the abut
ments. Markgraff was a few feet behind him, too far to jump, but as the
Bachelors, like the poor, wo have always with us. They never become extinct. The rising army each year is attacked by an opposing army of females, and each individual Is. of course, defeated and led away to the slaughter; yet, in spite of this fact, the bachelor still persists.
Many things conspire to keep him going; for one, there are the cities. Bachelors who live In cities leam to be very comfortable. They can arrange their home decorations to suit themselves, and can at any time bring home a friend to dinner without any criticism from the managemenL
Bachelors who live in cities can also eat and drink what they please without Interference, and so far as all the material comforts are concerned, they can regulate their lives to suit themselves.
On the other hand, the thing that depletes the ranks of the bachelors more than anything else is lonesomeness. Many bachelors are willing to put up with almost any kind of a hard life so long as they can get someone to share it with. Ease and luxury are, after all, among the minor concerns; after a . bachelor has experienced them for a sufficient length of time he is willing to get married, if only to have someone to quarrel with. Man is always looking for trouble.— Life.
ERUPTION COVERED BODY
Made Bee Line for a Fence.
Ridgeville she took it into her head to “start something.”
The men succeeded in climbing into the wagon and the cow started down the railroad tracks. Day and Smithson chased her and when they reached an open field the cow turned on them. Smithson, who weighs more than 200 pounds, and is somewhat slow of foot made a bee line for a fence. Just as his coat tails disappeared on the other side the cow lunged for him. Day had taken refuge behind a tree and the cow went on about her business until Day thought he would persuade her to return to town. She was not in a mood to obey commands and when she caught a glimpse of Day she started for him with lowered head. Day beat her to a tree by'about three feet.
SAY SHE IS “BLACK WITCH”
Young Indian Girl Accused of Causing Sickness and Death on the Reservation.
“Three years ago this winter I had a breaking out that covered my whole body. It itched so it seemed as if I should go crazy. It first came out in little pimples on my back and spread till it covered my whole body and limbs down to my knees, also my arms down to my elbows. Where I scratched it made sores, and the terrible itching and burning kept me from sleeping. I tried several reme dies all to no purpose. Then I concluded to try the Cuticura Remedies. I used the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, also the Resolvent, for about four months, and they completely cured me of eczema. I have had no return of the disease since. I never had a good night’s rest after the skin eruption first broke out till 1 commenced using the Cuticura Soap and Ointment. I had only used them a few days before I could see they were beginning to heal, and the terrible itching was gone.
“Those that lived in the house at the time know how I suffered, and how the Cuticura Soap and Ointment cured me. , I never take a bath without using the Cuticura Soap, and I do not believe there are better remedies for any skin .disease than the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.” (Signed) Miss Sarah Calkins, Waukegan, 111.. Mar. 16, 1911. Although Cuticura
Soap and Ointment are sold by druggists and dealers everywhere, a sample of each, with 32-page book, will be mailed free on application to “Cuticura,” Dept. L, Boston.

Malone, N. Y.—Down on the St. Regis Indian reservation, which lies partly in the state of New York and partly in the province of Quebec, a young Indian girl, aged sixteen years, has been raising a furore, and the Indians assert she is a witch.

This thing of doing in Rome as the Romans do is not always the best plan, says the Popular Magazine. If you don’t believe it Miss Jane Addams, the famous sociological worker of Chicago, will tell you a story to prove it.
Miss Addams knew a wealthy woman who delighted in doing works of charity, such as sending missionaries to foreign fields, and on one occasion she put up the money to send a missionary to the Caroline Islands. Soon after his arrival on the scene of his activities the religious man sent his benefactress a photograph of himself and his wife.
Whereupon, the rich woman wrote the man of God a letter, suggestin.5 that his wife, in order to win the confidence of the natives, should throw away her fine clothes and. wear the costume of the islands. Two months later she received this answer:
- “inclosed is the complete costume worn by native women. My wife awaits further word from you before adopting It.”
The native dress conslted of piece of woven straw, two inches wide and eight inches long.t
Knew Something Aoout It.
The small boy of the household was not notably proficient In sacred lore, but when his sister asked him, “Where was Solomon’s temple?” he indignant-resented the supposed impeachment of his stock of information, and retorted:
“Don’t you think I know anything?’’ She assured him that she did not doubt that he knew, but urged him to state for her benefit.
Though not crediting her sincerity, he finally exclaimed, curtly:
‘On the side of his head, of course, where other folk’s are! D’you s’pose I’m a fool?"

Tired of It.
The four-year-old had taken his reproof in a gratifying spirit, had admitted his fault, and sued sweetly for pardon. Encouraged by his receptive attitude, his mother ventured to add a few general ethical truths; but with the first hint of transition from the concrete to the abstract a mild resentment dawned in his eye.
“Mother,” he demanded, respectfully but firmly, “when is this conversation going to stop?”—Harper’s Bazar.

draw, started up he dropped to the ground and began to crawl down the other way. The time required for this was fatal and the big draw rose rapidly to Its height of 85 feet In air, leaving Markgraff swinging over the channel and clinging to the slender rods of the bridge, with his body swinging to and fro in a stiff wind blowing in from the ocean. Haff gave a yell, but his voice was blown away In the wind. Quick as thought he drew a revolver and as fast as he could pull the trigger emptied It. Bridge Tender Fulton heard the shooting and ran to the edge of the channel. He saw Haff motioning In the air and quick to grasp the situation hastened to the tower house and began lowering the bridge aided by Haff. When lowered to within fifteen feet of the ground he paused a second, and the slackening shiver was sufficient to shake Markgrafl’s feeble hold and he fell to the ground. He was unconscious when picked up and was hurried to a local hospital where It was found that besides suffering from shock and concussion his left leg was BO badly crushed that It had to b© amputated.
