Two women each had thirty hens.
Oue sold hers at two for $1 the other at
three for $1. They determined to sell
them together and divide the money.
The first lot should have brought $15
and the second lot $10, making $2. in
all, but the man who bought them said
that selling two for $1 and three for $1
was the same as selling five for $2, so he
paid 24 for the sixty hens. What be

leaping into tho saddle the Held was away
a;-:iin. Tho jack had iseap-.vl in tho mean
tune, but iiiiothcr tool: lu-s place, ui:d horses
and riders were .soo.i makin;; tue hard ground
shako. To hit u:i animal so : -mail as a rabbit,
at full run, with n rill -, was seemingly an
irnjiosaibiiity, yen the valiant colonel did it.
His horse took-him y. tr.cuty feet of tho
living jack, when, dropping tho lines, ho
raised tho light weapon which had been hnuj;
upon tho saddle, and in tin offhand way lired.
'I'll j'tok buunded. three (oet pirq tj u- iiia
a ball, and f jU1 ijitMlliiJii '
''I'jiO i'iilo va '
---'" .utu with fchot, colonel,"
-uuuieJ some one. ''One shot," laughed the
colonel, as ho stooped from the saddle and
picked up tho game by tho ears. "It's mere
practice; any one can do it, but I will confess
I have been about ten years getting into the
habit. There goes another!-' and away went
the horses, who knew a rabbit half a mile
away, and enjoyed the sport as much as the
riders. Jacks appeared as if by magic; every
bush seemed to afford cover for one or more.
The sharp reports of repeating rifles began
to sound in rapid succession, and little clouds
of dust puffs like smoke rose hers and there
all about the flying game, showing how diffi
cult a thiug it was to hit such a mark.
'There is no use in trying to take accurate
aim," said tho "shot," as tho horsr s came up
and rounded to. "It is a matter of intuition,
I believe. I take no aim, but point the riSo
where I think the rabbit will bo when the
bullet gets there, and in some way they man
age to make coitneetion."
Riding across country at such a ppeed in
the clear, bracing air was a most exhilarat
ing sport, and the excitement it caused was
astonishing. Tho horses fairly went mad.
There is something unpleasantly human
about the voice of a, dying jack. The first I
ever took in coursing was in tho valley, and
my greyhound had started to the east and
gone oiit of sight. ' deep arroyo stopped
uiy horse, and I was nding in the saddle
trying to follow her with my eyes when I
heard piercing screams and then moans from
the road directly behind me. Thinking that
a child had been run ever or injured in some
way, I dropped into the saddlo and made for
the road, to find my dog standing over a
dead jack. Sho had circled and turned Lira,
and brought it to a finish immediately be
hind me. Often when shot on the run the
jack will utter a piercing, half human shriek,
and bound into the air to fail dead; so to an
oversensitive person tho slaughter of hun
dreds is by no means a pleasant sight.
As the hot sun begai. to pour down e
wended our way buck to the ranch, and
vhiled the time away listening to the yarns
reeled off by the colonel, whose experience
had been rich and raejr.
"Talking about sport," he said, "reminds
mo of a little experience I had with an
Englishman some yours ago up in tho main
range. Ho came clown from 'Frisco with a
letter of introduction to me, and wanted to
get into the heart of tho big game country.
It so, happened that I had 400 or 500 head of
cattle up a valley and a camp there; so I took
him up and introduced him to half a dozen
cowboys regular old timers and they
guaranteed to show him all the bear he
wanted. They got it into his head that it
was unsportsmanlike to shoot a bear, and
that it should be taken with a lariat; so he
practiced with a ropo at steers, dogs, stumps
and men until he was a very fair hand at it,
tud finally one day went off on a regular
bear hunt.
"It so happened that the boys knew where
there was a large patch of wild grape that
black bears are fond of, and they made for
it, fnirly sure to find one or more, and sura
enough they did. Coming down a little side
canyon, they came out into a level spot, with
a patch of trees covered with vines in the
center. Some of the dogs were put in, and
in a few rninutes out came an old brown
bear, snarling and showing her teeth
in a terrible fashion. 'Xow's your
chance,' yelled the boys, and they
ull stood b:tcl: to give my new friend
a cliaii'V. I toil you ho was no slouch; he
put his hor se up near the critter as he
would go, and riding around, dropped his
rope over the btar' shoulders tiie minute
sho rared uo. When sho felt tho rope the
jjw.bbed at it, but tho pony settled back;
then down she went, and began jiiat what
the boys cx-iected, the 4 rolling' business.
t)vc-and over she weat, winding the ropo her, ;;ctl;ng su.srie I up, but coming
nearer a::d nearer ths pony dl the timo.
The pony was the Grst o:io to tu:ub!e to it,
:is the boy saw, u:rd li?.Ta to snort aivl
buck; but U ai r.o Use, .ae old bear kept
cou.iy.r, Kcttin laoro ar.d more entimgied
svery moment, and lloa'.ly the pony turned
hid oud beii to ci aj: Ler, sua. ytUlnj: aiid
vmuipcring ana iicratcnmg gravei, tr.o norte
crazed; and in this shape they cai;:o to the
tide of the hill. Over tho went, buck
ing, tho Englishman cussim things until
they were blue. When half way down, tho
ropo broke, and, fearing tho bear would got
away, some of the boys, who wero laughing
themselves sick, put her out of her misery.
Tho boys got rather left trying to foul tha
fellow as ho showed so much pluck in trying
to stop the bear that they never tried any
games on him -again. After a while they
asked him what he projiosed to do will) th.4
bear after ho got tho ropo around him and
then he saw the joko, and rather thought
tho bear was catching him." San rxmicisco
A Floating Saw Mill.
One of tho greatest novelties of a practical
character which ingenuity has devised is
thus described by a Florida exchange:
J. L. Maull & Son havo their mammoth
filiating saw mill anchored off tho banks of
Burton & Harrison's hammock. This struct
ure is a marvelous piece of mechnnical in
genuity, und was built by J. W. ITaull ami
Edward N. Maull. It is 80 by 40 feet, and
stands abogtlive feet out of tho water, draw
ing only about, sev--, '- ; ev le-. . i. ... ;
built, and according to the judgment of Mr.
CiU'l, an old timo ship builder, is capable of
enduring tho severe strains of even the
waves of the ocean. The operation of all the
machinery does not seem to move the vessel
uny more than if it was on the land. It has
so far proved more of a success than its pro
jector anticipated, ft is equipped with a
forty horse power boiler anil engine, with tho
latest improvements in saws and carriages. A
planer, head box and slrfnglo saws are all on
deck and connected by shafting concealed
under deck, so that tho main deck is free
from machines and available for tho pilinj
up of inimenso quantities of lumber, la oue
corer of tho vessel is the cook house, where
tho hands board, while on the hurricane deck
are tho cabin of the proprietors and work
men. They are now so situated as to have
command of an uulimited supply of tho
largest and finest timber, and from points
heretofore practically inaccessible. A taw
mill capable of moving up and down strean
Racking a supply of logs, and thus" bringing

Mftdti lie4 ' by Suffering.
e beauty of life is in growing. Tho hap
piness of lifo is in striving. How many
women in the world are there who havo only
been made beautiful by suffering! How
many hearts have only grown tender from
having ached very hard. It is what wo see
of life and what we know and what wo feel
and what wo endure and suffer that makes
us beautiful. It is wanting things and hav
ing to do without them that makes us gentle
over the needs of others. The beautiful
women in this world are the all but divino
Marys and Marthas who have known what
it was to sit all night alons with gri-;f;
who havo broken their hearts over little woes
that others could not know nor understand;
who have gone alono and in tha dark, each
into her own Gethsemane, and there spent
long hours in voiceless travail. Catharine

Tho marriageable young ladies in aristo
cratic French families are ofen at a loss as
to how they are to employ tho time between
the final departure from tho convents or tho
boarding schools and the arrival of the
bridegroom. The bals-blancs, tho daily
rides, walks and drives in tho Bois; the oc
casional visits to the theatre and the opera,
the courses of water color drawing, or the
matutinal manipulation of tho inevitable
piano are not enough to fill up tho leisure
hours of French young ladydom.
A new pursuit has accordingly been de
vised for tha occupation of the spare moments
of blooming maidens who are awaiting what
Bea Jouson calls tho "Goblin Matrimony."
This is tho practice of photography, and we
are assured that a photographic apparatus
is now fitted up in the boudoh- of nearly
every young heiress in the noble faubourg.
Friends, acquaintances, servants and favor
ite dogs are all faithfully photographed, and
some of tho fair votaries of the art are said
to to remai Uubly adroit in using their

Slave Trade in Africa.
The condition of the slave trade may
be estimated when it is learned that Car
dinal Lavigirie, archbishop of Algiers
and Carthage, has felt it to lie Lis duty
to go to F.urope to denounce its continu
ation, lie has lately delivered most im
passioned harangues from the pulpit of
St. Sulpice, Paris. lie says that the evi
dence is that 400,000 slaves are annually
sold on the African shores, and that, tak
ing into account those killed in capturing
them and the deaths from barbarous
treatment, the flave trade counts 2,000,
000 victims everv year. New York Suii.

act in the interest of monopolies, says the
Journal. The stupidity of .such an as
sertion renders it almost a misdemeanor
to notice it. A tax on the foreigner who
seeks our markets with his wares is in fa
vor of monopolies, while the direct war
tax on home productions favors the peo

to teach the people great truths touching
