Evry effort should be made to

bered. Let every true American be
present on Decoration Day. The
people in all part? of the county
should co:nc to lied Cloud on the
Rmln Trrfs n C'orlMv with a Grin. Eut
Itetlrei in Discomfiture.
A co'.vfooy tells the Fargo correspondent
of the Minneapolis Tribune this hear story:
' I haven't time to tell you a lonsj 'yarn' to
night, hut v.-ill give you ray lirst cxpcricnca
mh a bear, away bad: in the early mining
days, when Helena was a acre mining
camp, and not large at that. I had struck a
prospect pocket away up near the head of
Lonesome pulch. and was working it alone.
I had to go down the gulch for my regular
grubstake one line day in the fall of 1SG2.
My prospect was about seven miles from
Helena, and I had made a little over half
the distance on my way back, little dream
ing of bears or any thing else but my gold
locket, which hadn't panned out as well as
5ly hore was pretty well loaded, with
flour, bacon and other stuff, and I had my
rille lying across the Hour sack in front of
me. My horse seemed to be dreaming, as
I was. when out of the brush into our path
walked a grca big bear. My hore gave a
snort and wheeled like a Hash, tin-owing
me into the brush as he departed down the
trail as if all the bears m the country were
at his heels. 1 had no revolver and my
r:lle was traveling down th mountain.
My knowledge of bears was limited.and
that particular time I was not anxious for
any new a-'jualnUinces in that lit!" . but net
so tho bar. lie e-med to reirard me with
a friendly eye. for he boldly ad.in-vd.while
I made for : tree with all the mkhmI that my
lgs . rpnubl" of. The b"; r wanted to
Leep me company. !"" lie got to lhs foot of
the tree by the time I had gained a limb
about six fel from the ground. The tree
was just a'.vijt ma:! enough for the fellow
to climb. ar-1 he tried Ids claws on the bark
.is high as he could reach. I was in a bad lix
and no way to help my self.
'1 couldn't use a. knife for I had none, but
crod luck and a happy thought elped me. I
had a canteen of kerosene oil suspended
around my neck, which I thought would
make his eyes mart and drive him away.
The oil hail no effect on the eyes if it man
aged to get into them, for the miserable
brute continued to look up at me and
seemed to irrin. Then another idea got into
mv head. 1 had a fresh box of matches,
and if I could set lire to the oil that 1 poured
aver the bear's head the battle was won. I
made several attempts to drop burning
matches on the oily hair of the bear, but
the lucifers either went out or missed the
I had no paper, but I managed to tear a
piece of lining out of my vest, and getting
a limb almost three feet long fastened the
rag to it. set lire to the rag; and with more
satisfaction than I ever did any thing since,
lowered the burning" rag at the end of the
stick until within about three feet of tho
bear's oil-soaked head and let it drop. In
about one second I was enjoying all the fun
to myself, and the other fellow was in
"The oil instantly took lire, and the blaze
from the burning hair was something good
for one in my place to gaze at. The animal
ivas surprised beyond the limit of any
bear'b imagination. One howl of pain, then
up went the paws to rub the burning head
to get burnt for their trouble, followed by
another howl: then down wentthe nose into
the dirt, but no relief, whsn, with a terriblo
howl, the bear made a rush through the
brush up the mountain out of sight-
Vcl!. boys." said Sullivan, "you may
laugh allyi.u're a-mind to. but it will be
many a long day before you can enjoy any
thing as 1 did to sec that bear cut up so soon
after he tLoupht that 1 was his meat. I
didn't v..i:t long after the bear left, for his
howl jr. jlit liave called some of his friends
around tis'e what was up. I found most
of my pr visions scattered down the gulch
and my horse in the Prickly Tear valley. I
never met any hunter or miner that found
my bear m hi"- travels, and I think the poor
cu-s must have died. I'll ee you all to-morrow
night." and the old man had gone up
the bhuTio his cabin.

The on g-eat mistake all beginners make
m biHsards is to study angles and curves
and then enter into a profound geometrical
calculation of results. You can never suc
ceitl that way. as there is not a man in tho
busiiws who knows the law of angles. Tho
lirst lesson should be to study force, and as
MXn as you have that under jwrfect control
it is time enough to watch the way c:qcrts
make the more difficult shots. Theory is
worse than useless, and the science of
curves, masses, draw and banks all de
pend on practice. Until a novice has his
wrist under irfect control and knows to a
nicety what fcrcc to apply he only wastes
his lime and money in trying to master the
game. It is like a fellow trying algebraic
equations before he knows multiplication,
and the onlj- thing that will do a man good
is to take a siii"le ball and prartlee long
enough to acquire a knot It a;rc of force.

Guide Bock. May 17th. Special
correspondence to the Chief. The
rain has already given our people new
energy, and, as more is coming soon,
it is but reasonable to hope for a
heavy crop of oats, corn and potatoes
Guide Bock has never taken a back
seat yet among her sister towns and,
with her full quoto of enterprising
people, is destined to become the
cleanest and best regulated village in
the valley. A few years ago we had
to contend with a certain rule-or-ruin
class of fellows. But now that their
star has gone down and they have be
come more the objects of pity than
otherwise, everything moves along
harmoniously, svstematically and
prosperously. Shakespeare says:
'Some are born great, some achieve
and some have greatness thrust upon
them." . Xow, if our little place ever
becomes great it must eomo of our
having achieved greatness. We have
no booms; we simply do it all our
