BgU3 throufh that section of ta
United Etatee vhtn Mew alexios aad
Arizona aaeet are bands of wild aal
nala whose WW U mora to be) dreaded
than that of th oantlpede and ia a
fatal aa the veoona of the rattlesnake.
They are know aa the wild doga of
Arlaona and aa' bold have they becomo
that the residents coaad about the field
of their operations are organising to
hunt then down.
These brute form a species by them
selves and no natural history telle
anything- at all about them. Their
origin ia not positively known, but they
are supposed to be a cross between a
combination of Siberian bloodhound
and bulldog stock, and the large timber
wolf of Arizona, The first of these waa
taken into New Mexico by cattle men
resident there, about IS years ago. S .
It waa not very long after that when
the first of the present specie of ani
mals that ia now creating so much
trouble was seen, and for a time their
depredatlona were alight Timber
wolves were not over plenty In Arlsona,
nnd while occasionally a sheep, colt,
. home or steer would be pulled down by
the brutes, there waa no attempt to ex
terminate them beyond taking a ahot
at one of the depredators whenever op
In these days, however, their short
barks and long, dismal howls or roars,,
something like a coyote howl intesi
fled many times, are becoming alto
gether too familiar. The nolae they
niui.e is fearsome Indeed fur more bo
than the Hi-ream of the panther or the
howl of the thoroughbred wolf. None
have ever been captured, aud no one
wants to capture them, for their ap
penrunce is very nearly as ugly aa their
bite. A full grown animal of this sort
will weigh about 100 pounds, nndt
stauds from to three feet high.
They are heaviest about the shoulders
and neck, have a. round-shaped head and
tahort, sharp ears.
The general color of their coats Is
gray, but long, blackish hairs come
struggling through, giving a disagree
able appearance. Occasionally one of
them will be of a different color still
and perhaps of fairly good appearance,
but thia is supposed to result from the
breeding in of domestic dogs, who hnve
been known to desert the ranches and
join one of these bands.
The cattle, calves, horses and colts
which meet death through these ani
mals are by no means killed by them
because food is needed, but die from
the effects of the bite, which in every
case produces symptoms exactly simi
lar to strychnine poisoning. Benjamin
Brown, of Mutrioao, A. T,, has perhaps
killed more of these animals than any
other person, and he regards the task
of hunting them as dangerous in the
extreme. While they have never
been known to wantonly attack a hu
mnn being, they will defend themselves
against one quick enough. ,
Mr. Brown tells one Instance where a
calf belonging to Pollard Pearstfri, of
Nutrioso, waa bitten by one of.these
wolf doge," The bite was not a serious
one, and the calf fled to its mother for
protection. The mother licked the
wound, and In a few moments the calf
was apparently all right again.' Two
daya later the calf died. wljh.. every,
symptom of strychnine poisoning, and
the following day the mother met a
dollar fate. ' " ,' j -
i The animals run In paeks of eight or
tea, and are absolutely fearless. They
are Increasing in number tremendously
and have become as great a menace to
the cattle owners and other residents
of the territory over whkh they rang
aa the grizzlies onee were to those who
invaded the Rocky moualalna.

Mooated.oa a bicycle, has been'gireii a
horse to ride, sometimes a horse drawa

metaoda.of looocnotioa of postmea ia
Chat which la otiliacd in France, where
the mea of letters and papers move
about on stilts. ! , ,'m,- -, ..,
It is not meant that all the franca
postmen make their rounds in thia fash
ion. Only those who serve the country
and the poet office officials through the
great atajtch of land that Ilea between
Bordeaux and Oayonne are ao distin
guished. All this land ia covered by a
growth of gorse and . . broom . which
makes walking a very difficult matter.
The postmen, however, have found that
there is a way to render it much easier
for themselves and that is by taking
atilta. o. i
To walk about in thia faahlon la not
aa easy as walking on one'a feet in the
ordinary way. The stilta are fastened
to the feet of the postmen, and are not
like those with which the small boy
niakea annual detours. To stand still
any length of time on them ia of coarse
Impossible without support, and ao a
pole ia carried, in much the same way
that the yeoman onee lugged about his
quarter staff. On thia pole the postman
leana when he wishes to rest, and' In
thia way manages to get along very
There ia another proposition to face
when winter cornea, aa of necessity the
stilts aink deeply Into the enow, and
this makes walking a very difficult
matter. This tho genius of the poet
man has proved sulllcient to overcome.
He accomplishes his undertaking with
the aid of a thin wooden skate, with
which he skims along the surface of
the snow and ice without sinking at all.
It is by no means an easy matter to
bulunce one's self on stilts tied to the
knees. What then must be the effort
of skating on atUta? '
This French postmnn makes remark
able speed as he shuffles and' glides
about from one place to another. Often
times the route which one man has to
travel on foot in this fashion Includes
more territory than Greater Sew York
possesses. The skates, therefore, in
stead of being a hindrance and a dan
ger, really make this work easier, and
the postman in the Landes, 1 as this
queer tract of country is called, rejoices
at tue coming or winter, tor ne realizes
that hia task will become a considers-

' There was a busy Interval of five
months between the last lesson and
this; as, the final departure from Gali
lee, November, December, A. D. ; the
l'ereaa ministry, December, A. D. 29,
to March, A. DH 30; raising pf Lazarus,
January to February, A. D. 30; many
wonderful parables, including the Prod
igal 8on; and the aupper at Bethany,
Saturday, April 30.
Scene 1. The Prince of Peace. Va.
6, 7. On Sunday, the day after the
Jewish Sabbath, corresponding to our
Monday, Jesus, who had been apendlng
the night at Bethany, two miles from
Jerusalem, planned to ride into Jeru
salem, as the prophets bad foretold, and
aent two of His disciples to Bethphage,
the next village, for a young ass on
which to ride. These went and found
the colt, and the owners objecting, tbey
said to them: "The Lord hath need of
him," even aa Jeaus commanded them.
Instead of a saddle they put upon the
ass their clothes, as is frequently done
by the rider himself to-day. !
The purpose of thia riding into
Jeruitalein waa to set forth, aa in a
living parable, that lie Was the Mes
siah, the expected king, and to present
Himself to the Jewa for their accept
ance. It waa the final offer to those
who hod rejected Him aa a teacher, that
they might accept Him as the Messiah,
and aave themaelvca and their nation
Scene II. The Triumphal Procession.
Vs. 8, 0. "And a very great multitude
spread their garments In the way; others
cut down branchea from the trees, and
strewed them in the way." Thus David
was welcomed by singing and danc
ing women, out of all the cities of Is
rael, aa he cumc back from the slaugh
ter of the Philistines. Herodotus re
corda that when Xerxes waa passing
over the bridge of the Hellespont, the
way before him was strewed with
branches of myrtle, while burning per
fumes filled the air.
The crowds came from two directions,
from the city (John 12:12), and crowds
of pilgrims from oil parte thronging
Into the city by the Jericho road, liy
a census taken in the time of Xero,
it was ascertained that there were 2,
71)0,000 Jews present at the l'aesover.
lleing visitors, they would have abun
dant leisure for any procession or ex
citement. And the multitudes cried, Baying,
"ITosanna (nyanlng 'Save, we pray') to
the Hon of David! Itle&sed is he that
cometh in the name of the Lord! Ho
sanna in the highest!" The words are
taken from Psa. 118:25, 26, a hymn
which the . people were accustomed to
apply to the Messiah. :
Sccue III. Sorrow Over Those Who
Kef used to Join in the Triumph. Luke
13:41-44. One touching incident is re
lated by Luke only. As the procession
began to descend from the summit of
the Mount of Olives, tho glories of
Jerusalem in all its splendor burst upon
Jesus' view. Here, while others flhout
ed, Jesos wept over the city, for the
sins of Its people, who, in rejecting him,
sealed the ruin of the city and the na
tion. Scene IV. Kingly Deeds in the Royal
City. Vs. 10-14. "And when lie wus
come into Jerusalem, all the city wus
moved:" A strong word in the original
from which their word "earthquake"
comes; they were shaken as by an
earthquake. And they said: "Who is
thia?" Those who accompanied Jesus,
Answered the question which the peo
ple of the city asked: "This is Jesus,
the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee." '
Now at the end of His ministry, Jesus
did aa He did at the beginning (John
2:13-17). 'He entered into the temple of
God, "and cast out all them that sold
ond bought in the temple, and over
threw the tablea of the money changers,
and the aeata of them that aold dovea.
And aald unto them. It ia written, My
house shall .be called , the . house of
prayer; but ye have made it a den of
thieves." Thia waa a type of the work
of Christ in the heart, in the church,

eaaght the enthusiasm from ihrlr eld-
era, and entered with great sest Into
the praises of the Mecalah. The priests
and scribes asked Jesus to put a stop to
these loud praises. His reply was that
the1 very stones would cr7 out M these
held their peaoe. No power1 could re
press the fact that here! waa the true
Messiah.' ,Tha Old Tes'ament express
