HAWK CARRIES TP.AP
In a recent issue of the Sports
man's Review, a San Francisco writ
er tolls this story:
Queer things often happen in the
great bird world. More than three
years ago a farmer living In Shasta
county, California, set out a number
of small steel traps to catch gophers
that were playing havoc with his
carrot crops. One day while look
ing after these traps, the rancher
chanced to see a very big yellow
hawk swoop down on one of the
traps. Tne bird was caught sure
.enough, and while It was struggling
to free llselt froln the trap Ule slen.
der wire chain was torn from the
fastening nnd away the hawk Hew,
carrying with it the trap and chain,
both dangling to the left foot.
The farmer Just considered that-i
he had lost both his trap and chain,
and gave no further thought to the
little incident. However, very re-'
cently a farmer living In Sacrnmen- 1
lG county. :;.ore than 200 miles trom i
wiit-ie the rancher had lost his trap,
shot and killed a very large vellow
hawk recently that was after some
of his chickens. Securely attached
to this hawk's left leg was a No.
3 steel trap and more than a yard of
small chain. Beyond all doubt this
was the very same bird that had car
ried off the other rancher's trap
three years before.
All around the sharp teeth of tho
trap a large fleshy callous place had
grown, making quite a big lump.
This excrescence had rendered the
hawk's left talon perfectly helpless
and useless In capturing its prey.
But with all the painful suffer
ings of the bird through tnree years,
and Its crippled condition, this hawk
had managed to secure its prey,
and live about the same as any other
predatory feathered creature. The
farmer had doubtless performed nn
net of mercy in placing the bird out
of its sufferings.

"According to Dr. Nuegll of the Uni

"ynwulug brings all the respiratory

together In Utah or Nevada, nlthough
the dnte will probably be changed.
Salt Lake, Utah, and Reno and Ely,
Nov., nro talked of by promoter "Tex"
Illckard ns possible places for the fight.
In his letter to the attorney genernl
tho governor snld:
"The first session of the legislature
held In this state In the year 1850 en
acted a law making it a felony foi
two persons to fight each other upon
n previous agreement upon n wager for
money, or any other reward. This lnw
has been amended from time to time
but never so ns to make prizefighting
"Our people have the right to de
mand that prizefighting shall cease
In this state, and It will If our present
laws are enforced, esiecially If the
courts follow our decisions of the su
preme courts of our sister states In
defining a prizefight.
"To show that the so. called 'spar
ring exhibitions' held In this stnte uu
der the auspices of Incorivorated nth
letlc clubs have not been sparring ex
hibitions, but prizefights, I need but
refer you to the Hies of our dally
newspapers. I will call your attention
to two or three of the recent ones.
First, the Moran-McCarthy light. The
Oakland Tribune in Its Issue of April
30, in reporting it, uses this language.
"'After the sixteenth round had
gone some fifty seconds Moran lauded
a blow on MeCnrthy'n Jaw. It did not
look to be a heavy punch, but the
youug fighter went over backward, his
head 'seemingly dropping below, as
though his neck hud been Injured, nnd
as he struck tho floor the sound of the
Impact could be heard throughout the
pavilion. McCarthy died.
"Next the Wolgast-Nelsou light took
place on Washington's birthday. It
seems that prizefighters always want
to tight on Washington's birthday,
Decoration day and Indeieiidencc day.
It was reported In all the dally papers
of the stuto by rounds. I quote from
tho Han Francisco Chronicle of Feb.
"'Round 30. Wolgast appeared loth
to put lu the finishing punch. Ho Jab
bed Incessantly nt the Battler's anat
omy, and again tho blood flowed In n
stream. Wolgast almost sent Nelson
to the floor, lauding blow after blow
on the defenseless champion's fuce.' "
Governor Gillett Is said to have de
termined to stop the prizefight be

Francisco on IndeiKmdoneo day would
create the Impression tlint the Golden

What He Found Out.
An Italian Journalist, Slguor Tom-
nuiso Glloul, has Just had some dls
agreeable experiences. Desirous of
knowing something of tho lunutlc nsy
Iums from within, with tho object of
ameliorating tho lot of tho Insane, ho
presented himself at the gates of tho
Cluinrosa asylum and asked for nn
audience of the king of Italy. Tho ot
tendauts showed hlui tho door, nnd
then ho run foul of tho police and lu
the cud found himself interned In the
asylum. The doctors examined him nnd,
finding him fnr from tractable, ad
ministered nn emetic. Then they gave
him a shower buth nnd next vaccinat
ed tho enterprising journalist. After
that they held a consultation In the
presence of the "lunatic," whoso bona
fides they evidently suspected, nnd bru
tally but unanimously agreed tjint the
only treatment in such a case was tre
panning for n cancer on the brain.
By this tlmo Slgnor Tommaso Gllonl
thought tho best ho could do was to
confess. This ho did nnd found him
self at the police station. The magis
trate, however, released him, observ
ing tlint ho thought tho doctors had
administered sulllcleut punishment.

Murderer of Massachusetts Deputy

Helped In the Capture.
Muuroo Bridge, Mass., Juno 10. No

bandit, but a cringing, whining cul
prit who abjectly fears the fate on the
gnllows tree which seems certnln be

lu court today nud held for trial for
the murder of Deputy Sheriff Uns
klns of Gbarlcmont last Sunday.
Phelps wns captured In the woods on
Munroe mountnln. Hunger, thirst and
exposure took the starch out of Phelps,
and he made no reslstanco when B. IV
Shea of Ware, a deputy game warden,
crept through tho bushes nnd Jumped
Just before the capture Nathan Tow

somebody yell to him from the edge
of tho woods, and lu nn opeulug Tower
suw Phelps leaning against one of the
trees. Tho murderer cried faintly:
"For God's snko, Nate, get tno some
water. I am choking with thirst."
Nate ran to a nearby field, where
the murderer's brother, S. R. Phelps,
wns at work. The brother, although
he did not see the outlaw, heard htm
calling for water. Word was sent to
State Olllcer Crittenden, who gathered
sixteen sharpshooters from the mili
tiamen and started for the place where
Silas Phelps was hiding.
Tho men secreted themselves In the
bushes for nbout half au hour before
Silas Phelps was again henrd. ThU
time he iraarked, "Nate, when in h
nm I going to get tlint water r
State OHlcer Crittenden then circled
the siot with his men, who brought
their guns to bear on the bushes, and
gave orders to shoot to kill If he made
any attempt to fight.
Then Shea volunteered to enter the
thicket nnd attempt to capture Phelps.
Handing his gun to nuother man, Shea
entered the bushes and found Phelps
crouched in a little spruce nbout three
feet wide. He jumped on top of the
outlaw, who put up uo resistance, but
calmly submitted to being taken.
As soon as ho was captured the
ranks of sharpshooters and soldiers
rushed Into close quarters with rifles
pointed nt the murderer and assisted
In haudcuiling him. He begged for
food and water and was allowed to
drink his fill from a brook. Later ho
was given food.
They Should Be Careful In Selecting a
A case has occurred lu Bcrliu show
lug the unpleasant experiences which
may occur to tourists who engage
board In a boarding house not well
recommended. Three American wom
en were tho victims.
In the new part of tho town, the so
called American quarter, a neat sign
of "Pension" nttractcd tho women, and
they engaged board there. According
to the German custom, they paid the
boarding house charges a month in
advance. Two days afterward tht
landludy went to a hospital, and the
next day tho domestic girl of nil work
took her departure. Food nnd service
censed, and tho host, a count, moved
into tho attic for some reason un
known to tho Americans.
The Americans protested that theli
mouey should bo refunded or they
should hnvo food and service. The
host told them ho could supply nclthci
us ho hud no money. The women con
sulted their friends and were advised
to niako the best of the bargain and
camp out for the rest of tho mouth.
Some days later tho host appeared
in their rooms nnd proceeded to re
move tho curtains from tho windows.
Tho women appealed to au American
who happened to bo calling, but the
only result of his Interference was a
scuffle with the landlord, who knocked
him out with a bunch of heavy keys.
Two of tho women then sought po
llco aid nt tho nearest station, n mile
awny. Tho officials laughed at them,
telling them It was a prlvato matter
and no concern of theirs.
In the meantime tho landlord return
ed with two men aud took down the
curtains, Informing tho women that
he would bo back at C o'clock tho next
morning to removo tho furniture. Tho
women then sought tho aid of tho
American consul general, who advised
them to inovo out' quietly nud offered
