markable Escape from a Dear.
Some years ago, writes Henry Howe,
the historian of the western pioneers.
party of trappers were on their way to
the mountains, led, we believe, by old
Sublette, a well known captain of such
expeditions. Among them was John
Glass, who had been all his life among
the mountains, and had seen numberless
exciting adventures and hairbreadth
escapes. On the present expedition he
and a companion were ne day passin;
through a cherry thicket in the Black
Hills when Glass descried a large griz
zly feeding on pignuts. He at once
gave the alarm and both men crept
cautiously to the skirt of the thicket.
They took careful aim and fired their
eruns at the same moment. Both balls
took effect, but not fatally. The bear
growling with pain and fury, charged
upon his foes.
"Kun for it, lini, snouted Ulass, "or
we'll be made meat of sure as shootin!"
Both men bolted through the thicket
but the heavy brush obstructed their
progress, while the weight and strength
of the grizzly bore him on, and he was
soon close upon the men. They man
aged to get through the thicket, how
ever, and were hurrying across a little
opening toward a bluff when Glass
tripped and fell. Before he could rise
the bear was upon him I
Glass did not lose his presence of
mind, but discharged liis pistol in the
brute's face. The next moment the bear,
blood streaming from his nose and
mouth, struck the pistol from his ene
my's hand and, fixing his claws deep into
the poor man's flesh, rolled with him to
the ground. The hunter struggled man
fully and drew his knife and plunged it
several times into the body of the furious
animal, which was tearing his face and
body, baring the bone in many places.
Glass, weak from the loss of blood, at
length dropped his knife and fell over
in a faint.
Bill, who had watched the conflict up
to this moment too badly dazed and ter
ror stricken to do anything, now thought
Ulass was dead, and ran to tne camp
with the awful tale. The captain sent
a man back to the spot with Bill. They
found the bear dead and stiff, lying on
the body of the unfortunate hunter,
wYiom they likewise called dead. His
body was torn and lacerated in a shock
ing manner, and the bear, besides the
three bullets in his body, bore the marks
of twenty knife stabs, showing how des
perately Glass had fought.
The two men collected their late com
rade's arms, removed his hunting shirt
and moccasins, and left him beside the
carcass of the grizzly. They reported at
the camp that they had buried him.
In a few days the hunters moved on,
and soon the fate of poor Glass was in a
measure forgotten. Months elapsed, the
hunt was over and the trappers were re
turning with their pelts to the trading
fort. On their last evening out, just as
they were making ready to camp, a
horseman was discerned coming toward
them, and when he drew near the hunt
ers saw a lank, cadaverous form, with a
face so scarred and disfigured that
scarcely a feature was normal.
"Bill, my boy," called the stranger.
as he rode up, "you thought I was gone
under that time, did you? Hand over
my horse and gun. I ain't dead yet by
a long shot!"
What was the astonishment of the
party to hear the well known voice of
John Glass, whom they had supposed
dead and buried. The two men who
had left him for dead, and thus made
their report, were horrified.
Glass, it appeared, after the lapse of
he knew not how long a time, gradual
ly recovered consciousness. He lived
upon the carcass of the bear for several
days, until he had regained sufficient
strength to crawl, when, tearing off as
much of the meat as he could carry, he
crept down the river toward the fort.
He had suffered much, but had reached
the fort, eighty miles distant, alive, and
concluded his story by declaring, "I'm
as slick as a peeled onion."
Short Lived Crazes.
This is a great country for crazes.
They sweep over the country like cy
clones. Whence they come and whither
they go man knoweth not. A few years
ago the entire country was in the throes
of the pedestrian craze. In every city,
town and village athletes were wearily
tramping around and around a sawdust
circle, while thousands of spectators ap
plauded the dreary exhibition. Nobody
walks now that can ride.
Next we had the roller skating craze,
which affected both men and women.
It, too, has gone glimmering, leaving a
trail of broken bones in its wake. The
bicycle craze is now upon us, and bids
fair to become a chrome disease. The
men have had the red necktie craze and
recovered from it in time to laugh at the
suspender craze of their big sisters.
America soon loves her fads to death.
Driving Oat the Rabbit.
When the rabbit, which seems to be
a great mischief maker in the folklore
of most races, is identified bv the ab
original Cherokee physician as the cause
of a disease the "rabbit hawk" is sum
moned to drive the wicked anirnal out
of the patient. Sometimes after the in
truder has been thus expelled "a small
portion still remains." in the words of
the formula, and accordingly the whirl
wind is summoned from the tree tops to
carry the remnant to the uplands, and
there scatter it so that it shall never re
appear. Washington Star.

THE OLD MAN'S ACCOUNT OF THE
H. I. K LAND STACY.
I've been to the ineetiii', Nancy,
AdiiHii (ol Ue depot-hull;
An' I wish you'd 'n been there, Nuncy,
An' I wish the same of u'l.
They called it u tetiip'rance meetin',
An' said they all had come
To try mid i:ft up the fallen.
An rid the land of rum.
They first asked Parson Pel ers
If he would please to pray
An such a prayer as that ar'
I hain't heard for mauv a day.
'Twant like liia pulpit prayiu'.
When lie tells the Ixird the news,
An instead of pleasin' his Master,
lie tries to please the pews.
Uut to-ninht he knelt on the carpet
An' that he don't often do
An he prayed for the helpless widder,
An' he prayed for her children, too.
An lie prayed for the tried and tempted
An' the tears were seen in his eyes;
An' that prayer did'nt stop at the ceilin',
But went (straight up to the skies.
Then, arter the parson's prayin',
Jitn Jones, the tinker's son,
lie riz for they called upon him
An' he told what drink had done;
I needn't rehearse it, Nancy,
You know the facts full well
How rum has been his ruin.
An' made his home a hell.
Well, the women, the youth, an the
An' e'en we stronger men,
We couldn't a-help a Bobbin'
As we seed him take the pen.
An' totter up to the table.
And the paper sign
That says: "We're done! we're done
With cider, on' rum, an' wine."
Squire Smith was the next they called on,
An' the old man riz and said:
"We're gwine to tight the sarpint
Till he's numbered with the dead!"
Oh, how lie stamped on the carpet!
An' the way he shook his cane
Would a done considerable damage
Had it hit a person's brain.
When he sot down, why Nancy,
You'd ought to heard 'em cheer,
To see how tliey's excited,
You'd think the day was near
The day when rum an' whiskey,
From Bee Sheba clean to Dan,
Shall not be found or purchased
By woman, child or man.
Well, Nancy, as I sot there.
A thinkin' o'er the past,
An how I'd swilled down cider,
I says, "I'm done at last."
An' when the pledge they passed me,
An' said, "Sir, will you sign?"
I took the pen well, Nancy,
My name's there, on the line.

There is a large amount of mater
ial for reflection in this remark
made by the superintendent of
brewery in New York City when
high license was discussed. He
asked; "Who is going to be hurt
when the brewer has only to deliver
to fifty saloons the same amount of

Iowa as a state does not owe a
