COLORADO MOUNTAIN SHEEP.

rare and timid animals are leaving
their dizzy haunt anions the high
mountain peak aud drawiug nearer to
the habitations of man than over be
fore. In the comparatively low lauds,
near the town of Jefferson, there la
now a flock of fifty or more mountain
sheep. Jefferaon U on the South Park
Kallroad, about eighty-one miles south
west of Denver, In Park County. It lo
an, old-fashioned community, and has
near It the well-known summer resort,
Jefferson Lake. Tho vicinity, disturbed
by the rumble of trains as well a the
eoumla of human life and industry, Is
not at all a quiet one. It has none of
the characteristics which usually mark
the natural home of the almost extinct
mountain sheep. .
And yet for several days past a band
of at least fifty of the soft-eyed, lnrge
Jiorned native sheep of the Rocky
Mountains has been calmly grazing
around the town of Jefferson aud close
to the railroads. It is said that the
sheep do not display any sign of fear
of the Jefferson people. Many of them
come In open daylight within easy pl
tol hot of the residences. They do not
run away unless somebody purposely
trie to frighten them.
For many years past the sight of a
mountain sheep has been a rarity in
Colorado, and usually but one at a time
has been seen. A hunter far off from
civilization migb:. descry a solitary
heep perched ou a crag overlooking
some wild and steep canyon, but hard
ly ever within gunshot range. No such
thing as fifty sheep together has been
reported, even by the veriest Mun
chausen of hunters. When a lone sheep
was seen it usually disappeared from
view at the slightest awirin.
Considering these things, the descent
of fifty sheep upon the town of Jeffer
son, as though they had formed them
selves Into an excursion party some
where among the mountains, does not
look reasonably explainable. The gen
eral theory is that bitter cold and deep
snows In tho higher altitudes drove
them downward, and that they Joined
together for mutual protection as they
traveled from peak to peak. Killing
mountain sheep Is absolutely prohib
ited by law In Colorado. It Is a closed
season all the year round with the ani
mals, Just as it is with buffalo. Denver

London, April 27. The most serioui
feature in the Graeco-Turkish emer
gency is the revolutionary feeling dis
played at Athens. Ex-Minister Ralli,
leader of the prin ipal opposition group
in the legislative assembly, threatened
that unless the military staff was
changed he would issue a proclamation
to the people. His statements acted
like oil upon fire and the popular excite
ment has flared up Crowds assembled
in the streets to discuss them and want
ed to march to the palace to read tbem
to King George. Fortunately heavy
showers drove the people indoors.
M. Delyannis, keenly alive to tbe ne
tessity of immediate action, had an au
dience with the king, and after the in-
terview annouced that the staff of the
crown prince would be recalled and that
ex-Mmister Ralli, with three of hii
nominees, General Smolenski, General
Mavromihali and Colonel Dimopoulo,
would bo appointed to replace them,
M. Ralli, in a published interview, says:
"The moment Constantino arrived at
the seat of war the sole thought of the,
responsible commanders was not to at
tack or to withstand tbe Turks, but to
effect a safe retreat if necessary. All
orders emanated from the palace. Those
issued by anyone else were ignored.
When dispatches were sent to General
Mavromihali he was not where he was
supposed to be, having been moved on
by superior orders."
