that were peculiar to Virginia, her grand
mother having gone west from that state.
Tlio senators wifo bad almost forgotten
these dishes, but on coming to Washington
to live sho emploj-ed a negro woman as her
cook, and it was not long t;fore "old aunty"
was placing lie fore her s-omo of the dishes

"Old aunty'' has succeeded in changing com
pletely tho diet of her western employers, and
they nre ro fond of the now way of eating

they prefer it to the western.
This is tho bright sido of tho culinary ques

he saw amid the low growing bushes the Im

brow i cabbage heads ilut ho was still more
astonished when bo found a sjecimeu in full

diameter as 'iar&o its u curi-iao wheel, in

a sort of vine creeping 011 the ground. It
was known to the native who accompanied
Dr. Schadenberg, who called it Bo-o. Tho
party had no scale, using their boxes and
s;.-ecimens as weights. Weighing these when
epport unity served, it was found that a single
C iwcr weighed over twenty-two pounds.
It was impossible to transport the fresh
flower, so tho travelers photographed it, and
dried a number of its leaves by the heat of ft

Botanical Gardens at Breslau, where the
learned director immediately recognized it

and grow around a center, tilled with count

longer in tho female, or fertile liower.s, than

of the bounds, as the bay of ol 1 "Music"
broke the stillness. "If that isn't n cat 1 am
greutly mistaken. Stand back, gentlemen,"
be cried, as a moment later the sounds grew
louder, and then tho whole pack swept by as
if in review by the sweating dialing horses;
away they go, a living whirlwind, the horses
leaping ufter. The plunging, rearing,
scrambling is indescribable. Down the bank,
up the other side, the green bands cursing,
while tho old climbers scramble over and
find themselves in tho thickness of thick ur-
1-03-0 jungles. Shouts come from all about.
Some see the game, and some merely think
they do; but linally, amid u icrfeet pande

1 ne norses come struggling up, some
without riders and riders without bats.
Some are caught in the briars and seem un
able to get out, but finally the field is
assembled around a big sycamore, about
which tho dogs are grouped, making music.
Some attempt to climb and fall back. Ono
young dog gains ten feet up the slippery
trunk, only to slide down again. What Is it

bis ears twitching nervouslv, and the
short tail moving back and forth, indicative
of rage and fear. Treed surely, but caught ?
JNo, indeexb The chances are that he will
make another treo before the finish.
"Give him a chance to rest," says tho mas
ter of. the bounds, who believes in fair play,
if anything. "He is winded, and so are the
dogs." But the latter do not care to wait.
They sit and look with eager eyes, tongues
banging out, and white, froth flecked teeth,
showing a formidable array for poor puss,
who looks down to almost certain death.
Still, cats nre said to have nine lives, and he
does not propose to give them up so readily.
A CIUCLE AROUND THE TREE.
"Now, ladies and gentlemen," says the
huntsman, "form yourselves in a circle about
tho tree, and give the dogs full play, and
don't sheot; the hounds have worked for tho
cat and they deserve it. Again, it is the
most humane way oMooking nt it; the dogs
will kill the cat sooner than a bullet."
With the little speech delivered for the
lienefit of tho excitable tenderfeet in tho
hunt, the horses are arranged in a big circle
about tho sycamore, and a young man who
wishes to beard the lion in its den crawls
slowly up. As he draws nearer the cat the
hitter looks around iu desperation. The tail
twitches quicker and more nervously; glanc
ing down at the open mouthed dogs, then nt
thu approaching human enemy, the poor ani
mal is evidently considering the chances.
Nearer the clinker comes, until man and oat
gaze into each other's, eyes soaroe three feet
away, for a moment puss hesitates; then,
turning qm'okly, he steadies himself, and
with a mighty spring, is in the air. Down
he goes fifty feet, bounces among tho bush, a
mass of springs, steel and rubber, and is
away. He has landed just beyond the cipolo
and d horse has dashed aside to. let him pass,
followed by the j-ol in full cry. They go
tike a dash of light, a roaring, crashing
sound; a scream and puss is again visible,
perched upon the limb of another big syca
more. The same thing is repeated again and
again, and the ladies repent, and cries of
"Let her go," "Poor puss," are heard among
tho baying of the dogs that are growing
fairly mad with uhappeased ferociousness
Again the young man faces th, cat, this, time
fuily sixty feet frpm, tUa geCiin.d. Surely, 1
ever ap animal had won its liberty, this ono
had. But the game is up; the dogs are
spreading, and as out into the air the cat
leaps, in magnificent form thoy collect.

The agony of the cat is over in a second,
but the dogs fight, war and struggle until
each has vented his rage upon the inanimate
skin, that is now borne aloft as a, trr.hy.
