Plenty of Came In Maiae.
There h.is not been a j-ear for some
time when came was as plenty and
when bo litUo game lias been killed
and destroyed as during the past win
ter. One reason is that the snow in
many localities has not been deep, and
at the same time it has been bard, hold
ing up the deer and caribou and givU
them a chance to protect themselves by
flight. Another reason is that the
guides and hunters have learned that it
is for their interest to leave the game
alone, especially during the deep snows.
I have made it a point to see many of
Ihem in the early part of the winter,
and tried to make them understand that
it is for their interest for us to keep a
good stock of fish And game, as they
would get more business during the
The most of the game that has been
killed the past winter has been killed in

dogs to catch deer. There has been a
story of ninety moose killed near our

believe the most of this yarn is false. 1
have been within a day's walk of the
township this winter and I did not learn
of any such business. In fact there are
not moose enough in that locality. It is

Beekeepers and the Government.
Foreign bees without pedigrees may
be admitted to the United States free of
duty. The secretary of the treasury has
so decided. Until the last tariff bill wjis
passed bees from abroad came in gratis,
as "animals imported for breeding j ur
poses." The AIcKinley law declared
that this ruling should only apply to an
imals "regularly entered in recognized
herd Ijooks."" Accordingly, bees were
assessed 20 per cent, ad valorem, be
cause they had no jedigrees. The l-.ee-keepers
protested and carried their

declared that bees were "unmailable."
on the ground that they would be likely
to sting ieople if they got loose. The
beekeexers secured the recall of this reg
ulation, by proving that the packages
employed could not be broken. Wash

UUle Fear of Indian Trouble.
A gentleman at Rosebud agency writes
that the reports of dissatisfaction among
the Indians there have been greatly ex
aggerated. Since Lis arrival thero two
weeks ago he has traveled quite exten
sively through the various Indian camps
and thinks the Indians never exhibited
a more jeacefnl frame of mind than at
present. Never did they take hold of
work more readily or more extensively
and never did they take more interest in
the care of their stock than the jist
winter, as can plainly be seen by the
condition of horses and cattle this spring.
So far as dissatisfaction with rations is
concerned, if there is any such, the white
employees hear nothing of it. Cor. Min
There has recently been some inquiry
as to whether the Confederate govern

was referred to the lion. Charles C.

lloitwiftly Kncllah Sparrow. ,
A loving student of the English spar
row as .ho bird is to be seen in Brooklyn
finds that the little creature has in Li
domestic relations many human traits.
When the sparrows are mating and
building, the male sinks into insignifi
cance Jeside the female. When a nut-ting
place L- to be selected the male looks
jauntily about and is ready to accept
anything that comes to hand, but the
hen examines each proposed site with
critical care, apparently studies tho re
lations of the place to sun. wind and
rain, and tinally decides tho question
with small consideration for the opin
ions of her spouse.
When the ne.-st is to le built tho house
wifely character of the hen again asserts
itself. She is busy all day long gather
ing sticks and straws to serve as building
material. Nothing is taken haphazard,
but every stick or straw fits to a nicety
and is admirably adapted to the end for
whic h it is selected. As to the male, he
gives moral supiort and little else.
While the hen is devoting all her ener
gies to the task in hand he sits on a
neighboring bough and encourages her
with music. Nor does she expect or
wish more at his hands.
Now and then, apparently pricked by
conscience, he leaves his perch, picks up
a clumsy stick or straw and carries it to
the scene of the building ojterations.
But his contribution is seldom received
with favor. The hen usually examines
it with the ill concealed scorn that wives
sometimes accord to domestic perform
ances of husbands, and in nine cases out
of ten she tosses away the proffered ma
terial as soon as the back of her spouse
is turned. New York Sun.
A Cowboy' Senile of Hnmor.
A globe trotting Englishman told mo
this st ory: "To show you that the cow
boys are not aa bad as they have been
painted in fact, that they are opposed
to anything like lawbreaking and vio
lence let me relate an incident. There
was a poor clerk standing up over his
books at a desk in a shop on the main
street, and there was a cowboy riding
np and down the street. Well, the cow
boy saw the clerk and his sense of hu
mor was aroused by the idea of shooting
at him, d'you know. Those cowboys
have a very remarkable sense of humor.
So the cowtboy ups with his pistol, d'you
know, and he shoots the poor clerk right
through the head, killing him instantly.
" W eli, now, that sort of thing is very
distinctly frowned upon by cowboys, as
a rule, and in this case the cowboys held
meeting and resolved that the fellow
with the lively but dangerous sense of
humor should be hanged at once. They
put a rope around his neck, and there
being no tree anywhere in sight they
hung him to the side of a Pullman as
the train came rolling in. I've seen a
number of occurrences of thr.t sort,
which makes me quite positive in stat
ing that though they are a very rum
sort of beggars they are really not a bad
lot." Julian Ralph in Harper's Weekly.

and giving instructions to his servant
Joseph, he said:
"Now I want you to understand,
Joseph, that when 1 ring once that
means for you, and when 1 ring twice
that means for Aitiggie, the housemaid."
Joseph, who is the laziest wretch that
ever accepted wages he did not earn,
bowed respectfully and withdrew. A
little later the bell rang. Joseph never
moved. Presently it rang again, and
according to instructions Maggie came
hurrying to her master, who was very
"Why didn't that rascal, Joseph, come
when 1 rang for him?" said the bar
rister bachelor disgustedly.
"Why, sir," answered Maggie, ."Jo

ring he said to me, 'Now, Maggie, wait
until he rings the second time, and then
it will be you he wants.' " London Tit-
Strange Cave Dwellers la Spain.
At a meeting of the Royal Geograph
ical society, of Madrid, Dr. Bide gave an
account of his exploration of a wild
district in the province of Caceres,
which he represented as still inhabited
by a strange people who speak a curious
patois and live in caves and inaccessible
retreats. They have a hairy skin and
have hitherto displayed a strong repug
nance to mixing with their Spanish and
Portugese neighbors. Roads have lately
been pushed into the district inhabited
by the "Jurdes," and they are begin

The Growth of Railroad Mileage.
In 1830 there were twenty-three miles
of railway in operation in the United
States. By 1832 the mileage had in
creased to 229 miles, and in 1835 Hit
country had 1,098 miles of railroad. The
first through railroad from the ear4
westward was completed in 1842 between
Boston and Albany, connecting at the
latter place with the Erie canal. In the
same year the last link of the line from
Albany to Buffalo was opened. At the
end of 1848 the total mileage of all the
railroads in the country was 5.99G miles,
or about 500 miles more than there are
now in the state of Nebraska. Edward
