On the steamer which came in from
Florida there arrived a tall, lank citizen
of the Cracker State. He was well
equipped with baggage, and when he
had collected his belongings and found
an expressman he went up to a Broad
way hotel, registered and took a room,
About an hour later he reapjeared at
"Reckon you didn't see the baggage
brought, did you?" he asked the clerk.
"Notice the two trunks?"
"Three valises and a shawlstrap?"
"See the hatbox?"
"Umbrellas, canes, and all that?"
"Then I reckon you made a mistake
in the room."
"I put you in 3Q9."
"So you did," admitted the new ar
rival, "but it's a closet: it ain't a room."
"Nothing of the kind," snapped the
clerk. "Comfortable, airy room; we
had no other."
"Is, hey? Well, the porter has just
brought up my baggage, and it's all in
side except the shawlstrap and me. We
was last and couldn't get in."
"You asked for a dollar room," said
"I know it."
"I can give you a suite on the fourth
floor for five dollars a day."
"Don't want it," rejoined the Florida
citizen emphatically. "Colonel," he add
ed with a graceful wave of his hand,
"I ain't come down to kick; I'm per
fectly satisfied. I like your hotel. The
rooms is all large and airy. Me aud the
shawlstrap is going to get into 309. It
may take some noise and hammerin,
but we'll get thar. I'm goin to spit on
my hands and begin pretty soon, and I
thought I'd ask you to send some one
around in about an hour to sweep np
the splinters." '
The clerk looked at the mild manner
ed Florida man for a moment in silence.
Then he said: "Front, show the gentle
man to that suite on the south corner,
fourth floor. No extra charge, sir," he
added to the guest with a beamin
smile; "you must be tired after the V03--
age. Anything else I can do.' New

Information has reached the city of
the exciting experience of George Allen
and Mike Flynn, two prospectors, with
a cinnamon bear in the mountains a
short distance from Red Cliff. The meu
were on a prospecting tour and well
armed. As they were eating breakfast
they were paralyzed to see a short dis
tance away and coming toward them in
a leisurely manner, attracted by he
odor of the bacon they had just cooked.
a huge bear. Allen advised flight, but
Flynn could not resist the temptation to
use his Winchester. Taking careful
aim, he fired.
The ball struck the bear in the neck
and with a roar he rushed for the
shooter. Flynn fled for his life, with the
bear in hot pursuit. Before running far
he was fortunate enough to find a tree
with low reaching branches. Grasping
one of these he swung clear off the
ground just as the bear came jumping
up, escaping with a claw in the left leg
The bear attempted to follow, but was
finished with a shot in the spine from
Allen's rifle. Leadville Cor. Denver
Casualties for Six Months.
Since Jan. 1 there have been four de
structive windstorms, killing nearly 200
persons, viz., April 1, Missouri and Kan
sas, 75; May 16, Texas, 15; May 27, Wel
lington, Kan., 53; June 16, southern
Minnesota, 50. In the same period there
have been four great floods, viz., April

City, la., 83; May 20, lower Mississippi,
36; June 5, fire and flood. Oil Creek. Pa.,

10, Roslyn, Wash., 44; May 14, Butte,

Besides these there were on March 21
an explosion at Jordan, Mich., by wlnieb
10 lives were lost; June 13, the explo

which killed 13, and June 15, the fall
of the bridge over Licking river, by
which 32 lives were sacrificed. These
are the principal disasters of the yeai
thus far, and they involve an aggregate
of 960 lives. Adding to this total the
sum of losses by minor accidents we
have the following sad and unusual
record; By fire, 876; by drowning, 1,364,
by explosions, 313; by falling struc

A Nine-year-old Hero.
In a ward of one of the city hospital
lies a little boy who is slowly recovering
from a surgical operation. He is only
nine years old. A wagon wheel rolled
over him about three weeks ago, and
then the surgeons amputated one little
leg. But the owner is a brave chap and
patient, and his bravery has won foi
him a passport into the heart of every
attendant who has seen him. He has

Counterfeit Fives Afloat.
Business men in East Baltimore are
agitated over counterfeit five dollar
notes. Nearly every day one or more
of these notes turn up at the bank count
ers. The notes are imitations of treas
ury notes of the series of 1HH0. The pa
per is of a poor quality and lighter in
color than the genuine note. Especially
noticeable is the poor engraving. It
seems to bo the work of an amateur or
of a very nervous person. The picture
of Jackson looks like the impression of
a wood cut. But one feature is any
where near perfection, and that is the
signatures of Registrar Rosecraus and
Treasurer Huston. These are excel
lently counterfeited and would baflle
any one but an expert. Bank officials
think a number of these counterfeits
have been put into circulation within
the past week or two in that section of
the city, and but few have yet gotten
out of that vicinity. Baltimore Amer
ican. A I J ad Year for Uailrouil Ituililing.
From the returns now received at this
office, collected with unusual care and
thoroughness, we find that during the
six months from Jan. 1 to July 1 there
have been laid in the United States
1,806 miles of new main track on llo
lines in thirty-five of the states and
territories. Last year at this time we
found that 1,728 miles of track had been
laid, so that it would appear that there
has thus far been a falling off of over 2-i
per cent, compared with the same
period of 1891. But a review of the
work in progress throughout the coun
try does not warrant the belief that the
falling off for the entire year will be in
any such proportion. Last j'ear showed
the smallest aggregate of track laying,
4,200 miles, that has been reported in
this country since 1883. Chicago Rail
Idols Not LesH Than COO Years Old.
It is reported from Santa Fe, N. M.,
that in excavating some Aztec ruins
near Chaco canyon Governor Prince has
unearthed twenty stone idols of a differ
ent type from any before discovered.
They are circular in shape, forming
disks varying from six to fifteen inches
in diameter, the upper half containing a
deeply carved face and the lower half
rudimentary arms in relief. The idols
are believed to be at least 000 years old.
Salmon Packers Discouraged.
There is no improvement in the sal
mon outlook. Packers generally are in
clined to take a gloomy view of the situ
ation, and are of opinion that the pack
will be 50,000 to 73,000 cases short of
that of last year. Some of the packers
have ceased taking orders for fish, hav

they are likely to put up unless the fish
