In tho roud ahead of thorn. Tho dim light of
tho now moon revealed tho outline of 11 dm k
object, but tho men could not tell what It
wns, nuddolluuck juui)cd out of tho sleigh
nud ran ahead. As ho Rot in front of tho
team Ilouck snw what ho took to lio n loy
standing In tho mlddlo of tho highway, nud
lio walked slowly townnl him nnd was nlwnt
to nsk him what ho wns doing thcronll alone,
when n low grunt from tho object stopped
him. Houck thou saw that instend of n boy
a largo hoar, standing uprlj-lit on its
lmuuchos, wns what tho horses stuck up their
Thinking tlmt lio could easily scare tho
lienront of thorond, Houck pulled tho mit
ten from his big right hnnd, (lushed up to
tho bear nud gavo it a smart slnp on tho sldo
of tho head with tho tint of his hnnd. No
sooner hnd ho ilono this, Ilouck said, than tho
lar plunged nt him nnd almost downed him
lcforo ho hnd n clianco to realize that ho hnd
nrousod thonnlmnl's nngor. Quickly recov
ering himself, Ilouck denlt tho bear nuothcr
stinging blow on tho hend, nnd then thcro
wns such a ronrlng and snarling nround thcro
that Rogers, who had romnlnod in tho sleigh,
know what kind of a creature Houck had
run foul of. Again tho boar sprang nt Houck
and knocked him down in tho snow, but bo
beforo tho furious Ixvist could trumplo on him
ho got on his feet ngnin.
Seeing tho bear wns n fighter of tho first
order, Houck Hung off his inulllcr and over
coat nnd went nt bruin in earnest, giving it
thrco or four lively thumps on tho nose. In
stead of turning tall at this sort of treatment,
tho raging nnlmnl tackled Houck savagely,
striking him In tho faco with ono of his big
claws, nnd making his noso bleed frooly.
Houck then saw that tho lonr was too much
for him, and so he ran townnl tho sleigh, the
bear following closo nt his heols.
Rogers saw tho maddened nnlmnl thrash
ing through tho snow, nnd ho rushed in front
of it nud throw n big horso blanket over its
head. Thnt stopped tho benr's wild dash for
a moment, but it soon shook tho blanket off,
and then it mndo for Rogers, gnashing its
tooth nnd hollowing till tho woods rang. Uy
tho tlmo tho Ixuir hnd pnwod and shaken tho
blnukot from its head, HogerH had rushed to
tho sleigh nnd got tho other blanket, nnd, tho
moment tho bear lunged toward him ngnin,
lio threw tho blanket over its hend, falling
on tho bear at tho instaut nnd seizing It
around tho nock.
Tho boar struggled terribly to f reo itself,
but Rogers hung on llko a good follow, nt tho
samo time telling Houck to got tho other
blanket. Hoforo Houck could nsslst him tho
murderous beast roso up on its hnuuehes nnd
throw Rogers several foot away. Tho boar
thou floundered nud pawod nnd kicked nnd
jumped till it had got its head freo ngain,
when it tried to renow tho attack, its rago be
ing frightful to witness.
Then thoy quickly plnced tho blnnkots
togothor, mnking a doublo thickness of
thorn. Thon each grabbed nn end of tho
doublo blanket, nnd, when tho Infuriated bear
plunged nt them again, thoy flung it over its
head, rushed upon tho lcar as thoy did so,
and falling upon it with all their wolght,
thus forcing tho boar to tho ground.
Once or twice tho powerful anlmnl lifted
both of thorn off their feet, but they kept tho
blankets over its head by clinging to its nock
with their muscular arms. Thoy soon downed
tho struggling brute, howovor, but ho didn't
stay down long. At this stage of tho fight ho
roso upon his haunches with n spring, lunged
forwnrd nnd struck on his foro feet, and thos

onco moro. After nnother rest of a few soc
onds the boar madoadesporato nttempt to
got rid of the two strong men, but thoy hnd
rested, too, nnd thoy locked tholr lingers to

him ns he struggled and swung them this
way und that.
Vhon the boar boenmo quiet for an instant
tho two men got n grip on his gullet with
both hands. Then ho mndo nuothcr dosperato

tho lifo out ot him. lloth Rogers nnd Houck
were pretty well tuckered out when thoy
loosoucd their holds on tho limp nnd llfoloss

for tho blankets, tho lonr would in nil proba
bility have killed both of them. When thoy
got home that night thoy found thnt tho car

Cloth Jackoti for Spring.
Cloth jackets imported for early spring
days, says Harjcr's Bazaar, nro of plnln,
plnld or striped cloths, In higher colors thnn
nro usually chosen for wraps. Tho sty
lish coats of smooth faced clotlis for drossy
occasions come in copper colors, in tho now
green shades, in tobacco browns, Huodo color,
tho odd blues with green tints, and in bright
rod shades, whilo tho rougher homespun
jackets nro in stripes or lnrs or melanges of
two or threo of theso colors together. Tho
now bhnpes nro qulto short and nro slnglo
breasted; tho fronts aro closely fitted, nnd
many havo vests of contrasting color inado
ot cloth or elsoof ptquo; tho edges nro stitched
or bound, nnd tho linings nro of striped,
checked or chnugcablo surah. Braiding has
by no menus had its day of favor as n trim
ming on JncknU, and is ilono with both metal
nnd mohair braids, somo of which are flat
and others tubular, whilo tho twisted cords
ot silk or ot niotnl aro used in all tho most
elaborate designs hitherto done only in
Goutacho braid. A jncket that may be worn
with hnlf u dozen diirurent dresses is n useful
garment in n spring nnd summer outfit, nud
it is now an easy matter to choose such n
garment, sluco tho cloths nnd homespuns nru
bo varied in color; thus a copper colored or
Sucdo cloth jacket is worn by young ladies
not only with a gown of tho samo color, but
with bluo, green or brown dresses, or with a
a gown of black laco, whilo coats of bluish
gray or of drub cloth aro worn by older
ladies with gray, brown or black dresses.

silk, with a deep pinked outruchonttho foot;
tho drapery, lined with shrimp, is caught up
high, nud the front of the bodice is shrimp
silk gathered very fully with mouso velvet
ribbons, tied ncross it from sido to side. This
design can of courso be carried out in many
contrasts of color, and looks mrtlcularly
woll when the velvet used is gray, nnd tho
skirt a rich shade of yellow, and makes it
wondorfully pretty dinner gown. Thoro is a
beautiful shade of gray grcciwhich will bo

Cathcriuo Owon tells thnt tho only way to
whip cream bolld without one tcaspoonful of
waste is to havo it at least twenty-four hours
old nml Uioroughly chilled; then to lient it
steadily without taking the Uiiter out till it
is ns solid ns the white of egg. This usually
happens in ten minutes with a pint ot cream,
but If the kitchen is warm nud it does not
"como" in thnt time, it Is often nn economy
ot tlmo to set It in the ico, just as ft is, to got
chilled ngain. There Is no occasion to re
move tho froth us it rises; tho whip will bo
