J. C. Froehlich,
Next door to Hotel MoConnell,
A CI ray Haired Old Fellow Treed a Rear
and Finally Killed It.
Sam Parson's gray mule Zoke is old
and gray, but he possesses great strength,
both of understanding and of body.
Saturday old Sam conclnded that he
wouldn't work, and accordingly he
thouldered hit muzzle loading rifle and
went hunting. But before departing he
turned Zeke out to graze.
Finding the gnus around the parson's
cabin rather scanty, Zeke wandered
down the edge of the creek next to the
mountain side. There vdtlftn the shad
ow of the woods fee struck a nice, ten
der clump of grass and immediately be
gan to eat it with great delight While
engaged in this congenial task a large
block bear came down the mountain
side and approached Zeke. Zeke had
probably never seen a bear before, as the
nrsina tribe baa long been scarce in these
mountains. Nor is it likely that the bear
had ever on any previous occasion look
ed upon a mule. But this bear was
hungry and, while Zeke was bigger
game than he had bargained for, he
evidently thonght it worth while to take
a look at him, for he came a little nearer.
Zeke was not a bit afraid. He had
never stood in awe of manhood, not
even Old Sain, his master, and it was
not likely that at this late period of his
life he would be afraid of any four
footed creature that walked the earth.
Zeke calmly went on with his pleasant
task of eating grass. The bear edged np
another yard. Zeke switched his tail
and cleverly knocked a fly off his back,
and being relieved of the burden of the
insect still munched the grass.
The bear began to grew inquisitive.
He evidently did not understand what
kind of an animal Zeke was, his studies
in zoology being limited. He stood upon
his haunches and growled, not as a
threat, but as a kind of friendly salute.
Zeke did not raise his head, and still
munched the grass. The bear stopped
growling and walked in a respectful cir
cle around Zeke, studying him from
every corner. , He might have been a
hundred miles away for all the notice
Zeke took. The bear was puzzled and
uttered another growl of interrogation.
Again finding himself unnoticed he be
gan to grow angry.
The bear went around behind Zeke
and came very close, evidently deter
mined to try by touch to arouse the
strange animal. Suddenly Zeke doubled
himself up in a knot and leaped high in
the air. Two legs flew out of the bunch
like piston rods and caught the bear in
the side, whirling him over in a com
plete somersault When he struck the
ground he righted himself and rushed
away with a growl of pain. But Zeke
was hot after him, and the bear, seeing
that he would be overtaken, scrambled
np a hickory tree, barely missing a terri
ble drive of Zeke'a hind heels.
Noon came and still Zeke was under
the tree. The afternoon passed. It was
almost sundown, but still Zeke was
there. The bear could stand it no long
er. Zeke was about twenty feet away
from the tree, apparently taking no no
tice, and accordingly he crawled down
the trunk as quietly as possible, intend
ing to slip away in the forest. Barely
had he touched the ground when Zeke
turned with a snort and leaped upon
him. So fast did his hind legs flash back
and forth that they looked like the driv
ing rods of an engine. In a minute the
bear was dead, every bone in his body
broken. Mrs. Parsons, who saw it all
from the door of her cabin, says that the
bear didn't even have time to growl.
When asked why she hadn't taken a gun
from the house and shoot the bear in the
tree for she is a girl woodsman and bold
as a man she replied:
"I knowed Zeke didn't need no help,
and besides I didn't want to spile the
fun.' Pond Creek (Ky.)Cor. New York

"I was at Sioux City during the rise
in the Big Mnddy," said T. P. Sinclair,
a prominent farmer and stock raiser of
South Dakota, "and there witnessed a
sight that haunts me. Pretty much
everything that would float came swirl
ingdown the angry river wrecks of
buildings, household goods and gods
and among the drift was, what do you
think? a cradle ! One of the old fashioned,
wooden sort, and in it sat a white headed
little tot, apparently about a year old.
"There was not a boat within hailing
distance, the cradle was fully 809 yards
from shore and the river was running
like a mill race. I atarted on a dead run
down along the bank, hoping to find a
boat of some kind, but before I had gone
twenty-five yards the cradle tipped over,
spilling its little occupant into the mud
dy waters. I am pretty well seasoned,
let me tell yon. I walked over rows of
dead men at Donaldson and Shiloh, have
shot Indians and helped hang co
thieves, but that sight at Sioux City
broke me. I just sat down and cried
like a woman." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

"Madam," said the street car conductor
to a young lady in a blue calico frock,
"you have a dog under your shawl, and
yon must leave the car."
"What! Leave the car!" vociferated
the woman. "I have paid my fare and
I'm going to stick right where I am."
"Then I shall put you off," replied the
disciplinarian in blue.
All at once a law point came into the
woman's head. "Give me bock my
fare," she said. "I got in here in good
faith, and when I paid my five cents a
contract was completed. You must
either carry it ont or return my cash.
I'm not responsible because your cranky
directors don't like dugs."
The street car official stopped the car
and hailed a policeman. The point was
stated, ami the thief catcher, after pon
dering for a few moments, observed:
"I ain't no judge nor I ain't no jury,
but I claim to have some sense.
"Under your system you might make
rules that passengers mustn't wear red
neckties or red noses or three dollar
trousers, and after they had paid fares
show 'em the rules and put tbera off.
"There is no end to the rules you
might make to bunko folks out of their
ride, and every time a chap looked cross
eyed you could turn to rule No. 824,
providing that he musn't look crosseyed
and then dump him in the gutter.
"The thlnu isn't fair. There ain't no
law to it and it don't go."
Turning to the young woman he said:
"Yon stay where yon are, mum," and to
the conductor, "If you try to put her off
without giving her back her fare I'll
club your head off." .
Ting went the bell and on went the
car, dog, young woman and all. New

A Right In a Graveyard.
Two visitors to Trinity churchyard, in
lower Broadway, attracted a largefehare
of public attention Wednesday after
noon. One was a well dressed blind
man and the other was a boy of sixteen
or eighteen years of age, probably a rel
ative of the blind man. The boy led his
sightless companion to the grass bor
dered slab thnt bears the name of Char
lotte Temple. Dropping on his knees at
the side of the grave the blind man
passed his hands eagerly over the face
of the stone and an expression of su
preme gratification came into his coun
tenance when his fingers touched the
sunken letters of the name. The boy
called his attention to that part of the
slab from which all of the original in
scription except the name is said to have
been cut.
There is a hollow place there at least
1 finches deep. It fonus a basin to catch
water for the birds to drink and bathe
in. It was nearly full of water on
Wednesday afternoon, and the blind
man dabbled in the little pool gently.
He hovered over the grave for several
minutes, and became an object of curi
ous interest to at least a hundred per
sons who stood on the sidewalk and
watched him through the fence, New

"Old Ironsides.
If the portrait of some grandam who
lived in the early days of the century
conld "materialize," and, stepping down,
take her place beside the "tailor made
girl" of today, the difference would be
no more marked than that between the
good ship Constitution and a modern
"ocean greyhound." 'Nevertheless, in
spite of the topheaviness of the old ship
as compared with the new, if the two
sailed down onr harbor there would be
no necessity for an order of "Hats off,"
and our heartbeats would tell us for
which rang out the "three times three."

ours command both love and reverence.

An Interview with the Aged Poet a Pew
fear Before Bis Death.
Thomas Cooper, the veteran chartist,
who has received a grant of 200 from the
Civil List, had, on one occasion, a very
Interesting interview with Wordsworth
at Rydal Mount. Cooper had been at
Carlisle and started on a walk through
the Lake country.
It was on the third day after leaving
Carlisle that Cooper arrived at Rydnl
Lake. He was very anxious to see
Wordsworth and have a talk with him,
but, not knowing the poet and having
no introduction, was rather doubtful as
to what the nature of his reception might
be. But, summoning all the courage at
his command, he boldly strode np to the
poet's door and knocked.
In reply to an inquiry he was told that
Wordsworth was at home; so he wrote
on a slip of paper, "Thomas Cooper,
author of 'The Purgatory of Suicides,'
desires to pay his devout regards to
Wordsworth." In a very few minutes
he was in the presence of the "majestio
old man," and was bowing with deep
and heartfelt homage when Wordsworth
seized his hand and welcomed him with
such a hearty "How do you do? lam
very happy to see yon," that Cooper says
the tears stood in his eyes for joy.
Nothing struck Cooper so much In
Wordsworth's conversation as his re
mark concerning chartism after the
subject of Cooper's imprisonment hod
been touched ujxm. "Yon were right,"
Wordsworth said; "I have always said
the jieople were right in what they akcd;
but you went the wrong way to get it.
There is nothing unreasonable in your
charter. It is the foolish attempt at
physical force for which many of you
have been blamable." By and by the
conversation drifted to other subjects.
There was but one occasion, says
Coojier.on which I discerned the feeling
of jealousy in him; It was when I men
tioned Byron. "If there were time," he
said. "I could show you how Lord
Byron was not so great a poet as you
think him to be but never mind that
now." I had just been classing his own
sonnets and "Childe Harold" together
as the noblest poetry since "Paradise
Lost," but did not reassert what 1 said.
"I am pleased to find," he said, while
talking almut Byron, "that you preserve
your muse chaste and free from rank
and corrupt passion. Lord Byron de
graded poetry in that resMi t. Men's
hearts are bad enough. Poetry should
refine and purify their mil urns, not
make them worso."
Wordsworth's opinion 011 Tennyson is
interesting. Cooper asked the punt what
his opinion was of the poetry of the day:
"There is little that can be called high
poetry," Wordsworth said. "Mr. Ten
nyson affords thn richest promise. He
will do great things yet, and ought to
have done great things by this time."
"His sense of music,". I observed,
"seems more perfect than that of any of
the new race of poets."
"Yes," Wordsworth replied; -the per
ception of harmony lies iu the very es
sence of the poet's nature, and Mr Ten
nyson gives magnificent proofs that he
is endowed with it."
Wordsworth spoko of Southey in the
highest terms, and again reverted to
politics. "There will bu great changes
on tho Continent," he saiil,, "when the
present king of the French dies, but
not while he lives. The different gov
ernments will have to give constitutions
to their people, for knowledge is spread
ing, and constitutional liberty is sure to
follow." Wordsworth also alluded to
the spread of freedom in England, and
descanted with animation on the growth
of mechanics' and similar institutions.
"The people are sure to have the fran
chise," he said with emphasis, "as knowl
edge increases; but you will not get all
you seek at once, and you must never
seek it again by physical force," he
added, turning to me with a smile; "it
will only make you longer about it"

Falling from a Great Height.
It will be remembered that Mr.
Whymper, who had a severe succession
of falls once in the Alps, without losing
his consciousness, declares emphatically
that as he bounded from one rock to an
other he felt absolutely no pain. The
same thing happens on the battlefield;
the entrance of the bullet Into the body
is not felt, and it is not till he feels the
blood flowing or a limb paralyzed that
the soldier knows he is wounded.
