KILLING A CATAMOUNT.
LUKE FAULKNER'S TERRIBLE
TLE WITH A VILDCAT.
Tl.o Unite Took 1'ohhcmIou of the Ilouxe.
The Negro Alnn Who W ua Coins to
"Summit fin" but Didn't Luke's fiubno

Who is that gnlIomati with tho large
This in th jitest5'n often asked of an
old. wc-il known blacksmith in licrrien
county, now ncaring on o a rij,K? old
It i.H Luke Faulkner, tha man wT-o had
Mich a terrible encounter with a ta
niotirit some thirty years ago. I don't
Mipjio.so you would find one-half dozen
men in Berrien county that would have
had half tho courage that this man did
Mis.srs.H at the time 1 writo of.
Tho facts and circumstances of the
case are about ad follows:
You will recollect that thirty or thirty
fivo years ago Berrien county w as very
thinly settled, and consequently wild
animaL were more numerous than they
are no.v. It is true there are now in
these days of (Jeorge lie's and Shade
Dorminy's occasionally a catamount, but
they are not to be compared to tho cata
mount of thirty years ago.
SHE THOUGHT IT WAS THE DOO.
But to the subject in hand. Luke had
not long been married, lie lived on a
little clearing near tho ten milo creek
famous for the number of wild cats,
catamounts, etc, that roamed ita banks
and swamps in quest of fish or a stray
litter of young pigs.
The day on which this episodo took
place was mill day with Luke, and a3
the mill was some distance off it was a
pretty big day's trip, and if tho mill hai
pened to lo crowded it took till in the
night to accomplish the trip. And it 60
happened that the mill was crowded.
No ono was left with Mrs. Faulkner
for the day as no danger was apprehend
ed during tho day time, and Luke in
structed her that if perchance he was gone
till after dark she should go down at
sundown to a neighbor's house, a little
way distant on the road to tho mill, so
that she should be ready when her hus
band came back from the mill.
The day wore heavily away, as it does
to all young wives when first left to
themselves, until the sun seemed tobtand
sti'l. But finally the shades of evening
began to lengthen, and many an anxious
glance was ca:.;t up the road to see if Luke
was yet coming.
The fuel was prepared for the night,
the supper cooked, all preparations
were made for tho night and Mrs. Faulk
ner was sitting by a slow fire knitting
and waiting. Waiting for the one or
both of two things. For the return of
her husband or for the approach of tho
time when she should go to the neigh
bor's. It was now time she should start. She
would knit around onoemore. Pit-a-pat
pi-a-pat. She hears the dog jump the
fence and come walking in tho piazza,
and she turns to lock, expecting to see
her husband driving up the lane.
What was her fear and surprise when
instead of the dog, a great big, ugly
catamount walked in. eyed things cau
tiously for a moment (during whjehtime
aho was afraid to move) and turned and
walked under the bed and lay down on
a pile of seed cotton.
Can you imagine her feelings? Gently
easing up from her chair and out at the
door she fairly flew to tho nci-iibor s
! house already mentioned. It was dis
c-lit only about half a mile, and the ms
tsnce vvfis made in quick time.
This man wa3 fho owner of a slave,
a largo, heavy fellow, whom she thought
she would get to go and run tho rat piY
But "No, sah! Me to 'fraid of dr.t war
mint. Can't go."
j- hour or so Luke returned f torn
llio mill. Mopped titi'l Ci.T.e'l for l.TJ wfo,
according to pn-viou.s arrangement, and
was told the Mory of the c.it.
He'd go. Frank would go wilh him tf
he'd take tho two dogs along. Yes,
theyM tako them. A largo hand light
was procured and they started.
"Now, tuassa, if ho jump on me you
smash 'um, and if ho jump on you I
THE STRl'OO LE IN THE IAKK.
All right. They walked on. The ne
gro kept behind like a cowardly puppy.
They walked up to the yard fence and
ln'gan to make preparation:! for a des
perate encounter. Tho negro's heart beat
a double tattoo all the while. Juntas
tho light was well replenished and di
vided so that each should have a li.ht iu
case ono got put out. sind Luke reached in
his jioeket to get hi knife, bill"! he felt
the weight of a big dog right in Ins
breast and face which knocked him over
and put out his light. Oh horrors! he
could hear tho negro's feet pac king the
grit way off up the road, (lone! lie had
thrown down his light and betook him
self to Might. Luke by him-eli? Cer
tainly by himself in the dark and a big
catamount making de.sperae struggles
to lacerate his flesh with his sharp laws,
which was, however, prevented by a
hick new suit of jeans which he had on.
It was a tight hand to hand fight, hard
telling which would gain the ascend
ancy and win the night, a it were.
Finally Luke placed his left hand on his
throat and held such a firm grasp that
tho cat lay still with its talons bur
ied in his clothing. With his right hand
and his teeth ho managed to get out and
open his knife, an 1 with a sweeping
gash cut its throat from ear to ear, and
the beast was made to relinquish his
hold. Luke's clothing was literally torn
in shreds, but he received no wound of
a serious nature.
When he returned for his wife life
found the negro cuddied up in the cor
ner havin r a trenuine do-' arue. Luke
did not sav much to him. for he knew )
that was the very thing the negro would
do when they started. Whe.i asked w'liv
he did not stand his ground he replied.
"W'y. Mass Luke, my legs j.s gin to
viggL-, and I soon was back lu-io v.on
denn where I'd dig yer grabe."
Luke got to making pocket kiiivco
alter that, and to this day c;.rri. s
that is a sight to behuld, ic is sj lage. 1

How 1'a.M.uvrr lireaU It Made.
In the preparation of the Jewish Pass
over bread the kneading is dono in the
ordinary way. Pure gunpowder water
is tho only component added. Tho time
forthodjugh to be baked is reduced to
tho minimum. It is broken into flat cakes
and then run between rollers into very
thin sheets. Over these a workman rolls
a pronged stce to perforate the dough,
so that air holes may be s-een in the baked
cakes. A steel hoop cuts tho dough into
round, fiat sheets, which are then ready ,
for tho oven. The baker stands with a
paddio attached to a very long handle.
With tho aid of a boy he thrusts the cakes
into tho brick compartment, and in half
a minuto pulls them out ready for use.
A matzuth eako is round, about four feet
in diameter, somewhat browned and hav
ing slight air hole projections or it3 sur
face. They have a nil her pleasant tar.te,
not unlike that of crackers, and make a
good substitute for bread. In some places
there is a demand throughout tho entire
year for tho unleavened cakes by dys
peptics. About eight cakes weigh a
pound, which in large quantities sell at
eight cents. The cakes are very brittle,
and their pieces are ground up into fine
meal. This is the substitute for wher.t
flour in tho household during tho "ass
over. 'JJahii'ioro S:n.

gentleman had nothing smaller, say:
t:t tho finme time that he ha l no change.
At this one of tho chaps very foolishly
laughed, and stated that that bill had
been as good as a gold mine to them, for
they had como all tho way up Clark
btreet from the bridge and had had all
they wanted to eat and drink on that
bill because no ono could chango it.
This made tho barber hot, and ho said:
"Veil, you wasentt eat mo like dot; you
vas pay for dose shaves, I pet me," and
ho called his darky, saying to him: "Go
over by tho South Side uud got some
changes for dot pill, und 3 011 vasen't

stood the situation perfectly, for at 7
o'clock in tho evening tho threo young

When Davis Left Fortress Monroe.
Georgo Alfred Townscnd, who saw
Davis leave Fortress Monroe for Pich
mond.says: "His pictures : y: ' --' ' ' -
and gave him a 1!.: ,
eye of ruling decision, which now ho did
not show. Still, in this setting of Hamp
ton Poads, the man couldnot beelsothan
tho central figure. Tho great law of as
sociation made him tho personage to
which everything in view was subservi
ent tho old fort which was tho entering
wedgo into the lato Confederacy; the
yeljow barrack peeping over tho parapet
whero ho had been imprisoned; the
wrecks of tho frigates sunk in tho road
stead by his navy; tho opposite cape
whero lurked that morning terriblo as
ever the superstition of the iron monster
which had emerged thence for tho delib
erato work of destruction at the com
mand of his will. And now he was the
riddle and perplexity of his conqucrer:
this thin old man, just permitted to feci
tho breath of liberty, whoso name for
fear or wonder had gone round the world
aud earned from a cool head, even like
Gladstone, tho opinion that 'Jefferson
Davis had inado a nation.'" Do Fon
taine. An Honest Showman.
Iord Stowell, who went to see every
exhibition, provided it did not cost more
than a shilling, once presented himself
at tho door of a show whero a snake of
some more or loss gaudy color was on
view. But tho sight of so good a custo
mer was too much for the conscience of
tho showman, who exclaimed, like Mrs.
Cluppins, "My lord, I will not deceive
you. It's only tho old snake with a new
coat of paint." The showman doubtless
meant well, but he certainly acted ill.
Harmless pleasures are not so common
in life that even successful lawyers
ought to bo deprived of them without a
cause. Lord Stowell would have grati
fied the lust of hi3 eyes without risking
tho salvation of his soul if only ho had
been permitted to gaze upon a 6kiq
where nature! had been eclipsed by art.
A certain amount of wholesomo igno
rance is necessary to tho enjoyment or
even to the toleration of existence. The

Three young fellows were having a
heap of fun wilh themselve a few days

2:o0 in tho afternoon this trio went into"

and got. shaved. When the tonsorial act

Tho Point of View.
"li; r.11 depends upon the point of
view," is a phrase that has passed into z.
proverb. Its truth is illustrated anew
every day, but perhaps not often more
strikingly than it was in tho case of a
wealthy railroad man, who, in company
with a journalist, not long ago visited
Pike's Peak, in Colorado, and was shown
a magnificent prospect of the mountain
across a rocky gorge.
Fine, fine, isn't it?" exclaimed the
"Fine? I don't think so," said the
railroad man. "How are 3-011 going to
run a railroad here?"
Here is another illustration of the
"point of view:"
"We call the tiger," said a. vegetarian
philosopher, "a ferocious beast: but
