His hamlx are clenched, his face Is white
The red haired siren he cannot forget,
But has a wife dear, dearl
The wife's a miracle of womankind,
All wrongs and gracious curves,

Her beauty she preHerves.

LOOSE FAfG. THE CRIZJZLy
We were now just below the edge
of the snow, and a little above the
place where Henry had seen the .bear.
There was a slight breeze blowing up
the slide. Henry now went across
through the bushes and I above, in
the open, round the edge of the snow.
Soon after- we parted I came upon
huge tracks going up on the snow. I
did not follow them, but kept on
acrofs them, parallel with Henry. I
heard a swishing sound, and, looking
up, saw a monster grizzly coming
down the snow with swift strides,
evidently in a hurry, and almost in a
line between me and the sun, t.nd
the snow was flashing round him In
a sparkling haze. There was not the
lightest sign of hesitation. When he
viewed me at a distance of about
twenty yards he raised his great head
and fixed his eyes on me. Swerving
slightly from his course, so as to
come straight at me, his forefeet ap
peared to paw the air.
I aimed at his broad chest and
fired, and with a deep, low growl he
plunged headlong down the slope,
tearing up the snow and earth. He
brought up against some small firs, a
few yards below and tried to crawl
up to me, when I finished him with a
shot behind the ear, though, as he
started struggling down through the
bush I gave him a couple more. There
was no blood from any of -the four
bullet wounds. Arthur H. MaitJey t

KEFVTE VR. OS LEU'S THEOUX
The proposed walk of four and a
quarter miles was caught up ly other
cheerful and aged ones, until eleven
starters had volunteered, says Septem
bre Outing Magazine. It is to be said
of them that Dr. Osier's heedless re
mark about chloroform had something
to do with the fire of enthusiasm
which swept these pedestrians into
The ladies had a cup, of tea by way
of preliminary ceremony, and were
then persuaded to stand in column to
be photographed. The man with the
camera was a lad of 78 years, fitly
chosen for the task, Jeremiah Merritt
Oreene, who has been making pictures
in the Middle West for fifty years.
Then the signal was given for the
start and the eleven entries tripped,
away at a lively gait. Many of those
who followed them gave it. up and
went home after a few blocks because
their legs ached. Early in the pilgrim
age several of the venerable walkers
had to be held in check. It was hoped
that all of them would finish, and,
therefore, the amazing energy of the
.leaders threatened to tire out the
others. Two miles were covered as
cheerfully as if this were a picnic
party, and there were no laggards.
A few blocks from the goal, Mrs.
Maria Mueller, aged 80, who was one
of the impetuous ones that had to be
held back in the earlier stretches, be
gan to do a skipping step along the
pavement, as if she were coming
"down the middle" in an old-fashioned
She had an able partner in Mrs.
Susan Deckhart, also carrying the bur
den of 80 years, and between these two
the ardor of competition flamed so
high that they started off together on
a lively little trot for the unish. It
was a "dead heat" between the pair,
and first honors were thus divided. The
others trailed in after them in the best
of spirits, all vowing that they were by
no means exhausted.
The actual walking time for the
party averaged one hour and forty-five
minutes for four and a quarter miles.
Every one of these old ladies is the
mother of a large and sturdy family.
Their consensus of opinion concerning
their vigor in old age was that they
had worked hard in their homes all
their lives, had never "bothered their
heads about dieting," and early in life
had adopted the rule of "early to bed
and early to rise." The average age of
these eleven matriarchs is 78 years.
TWO HO USE - TRA "DlffG STO'RIES
Every , one who ever lived on the
banks of the Kennebec river has heard
of "Jim" Keagan, a shrewd Irishman,
who thirty years ago, was making lots
of money buying Prince Edward
Island horses and bringing them to
Maine, where he always found a good
'. market. He was a great friend and
. admirer of James G. Blaine, who took
pleasure in riding with him behind a
good pair of roadsters.
On one occasloa "Jim" had out a
horse for the inspection of a possible
purchaser. As usual, he had a good
story to tell. Finally the visitor asked
Mr. Keagan his price.
"Five hundred dollars," was his
, prompt reply.
"I will give you a hundred and a
quarter," was the response.
"Jim" looked him over for Just a mo
ment, and, seeing that he was all done,
cocked his hat in a manner peculiar
to himself and replied, in his charac
teristic manner: "My friend, that is
a h 1 of a drop, but he is your horse."
On another occasion "Jim" bought a
fine horse from one of the nearby
towns and agreed to give 1300 for him.
The horse was brought to the stable
yard, and "Jim" counted out $300 in
bills to the seller, and, taking the hal
ter, asked if that was all right. The
seller demurred that, there should be
50 cents more for the halter.
' "You ask 50 cents for that halter?"
"Yes," came the reply.
"Well, let's see how much you get,"
and, taking the biHs back as If to re
count them, he passed the man 50
cents for the halter, which he slipped
from the head, of the fiery horse, and
remarked that he guessed he would
only take tho halter and did not care
for the horso.
MME. LAIUVIE'RE'S bad bargaij
A few days ago Mme. Larlvlere
who lives on a farm not far from
here, was surprised by a well dressed
man who came to the door with an
eager request for a rifle, says a dis
patch from Blue Sea Lake, Quebec.
As it happens, the only firearm her
husband possesses Is an ancient, wire
bound, muzzle loading shotgun.
This and the accompanying powder
horn and cap box the 'excited visitor
quickly seized. A large charge of
powder was rammed home, a rifle
cartridge lying as a curiosity upon
the little mantelpiece supplied the
bullet, and the gun was carefully
sighted and fired, to the great alarm
of the lonely housekeeper. What In
the world the map with the store
clothes and the impressive golden
chains was doing she could not
The shot was evidently satisfactory,
for the man replaced the gun, threw
a whole stiver quarter upon the table,
and, with a smiling face, darted from
the cabin. From the window she saw
him run to the little barnyard, thero
pick up what she took to be the body
of a dead dog and drag it down the
load to where, below the hill, a
horse and buggy were standing.
Leon Larlvlere came home late that
night in a state of exhilaration. He
had had a coup or two of whisky
blanc at the village, and a traveling
drummer had paid him a dollar for
skinning a superb black fox.
"My faith, but It was a beauty," he
exclaimed. "Nice little white hair
peeping through the black fur. Why,
blood of my soul, that drummer will
sell it for maybe $300! Funny how
all the luck goes to some people!"
"What was he like, this drummer?"
asked the housewife, a suspicion of
the truth coming into her brain.
"Oh, a fine, big man. with brown
store clothes, and two big chains to
his vest," her man answered.
In a few moments Leon was tear

his fox, killed on his land, killed with

who was reputed to have fired the

in Boreman county. His death oc

The Indian, during his lifetime, gave
the United States troops as much
trouble as any other who ever lived.
He always bore the reputation of be
ing a "bad" Indian, and never lost his
hatred for the white man.
Rain-in-the-Face joined Sitting Bull
in his famous uprising, and was one
of the leaders in the battle of the
Little Big Horn river, June 25, 1876,
which is popularly known as the "Cus
ter massacre." He always claimed
that he fired the shot which ended
the life of Custer. Rain-in-the-Face
was a pure blooded Sioux and was 62
years old at the time of his death.
A hard fighter, a maker of trouble,
a horse thief, an Indian who would
kill on the slightest provocation, the
best general Sitting Bull ever had un
der him in his campaigns, Rain-in-the-Face
was one of the most picturesque,
dangerous and daring chiefs who ever
fought against the troops of the Uni
ted States. He belonged to the Sioux
tribe -and was a full-blooded member
of it; without a drop of 'any other In
dian blood in his veins a fact of
which he was excessively proud.
The Guster massacre was largely
due to his oath of vengeance against
the entire Custer family an oath re
sulting from his arrest in the early
'70s by "Tom" Custer, a brother of
General Custer. Custer arrested Rain-
in-the-Face for murder tn western Da
kota and took him to a government
prison in Missouri. Here the Indian
chief was held captive several months,
but finally made his escape.
"I will kill you all," was the threat
he left behind him for "Tom" Custer
and the whole Custer family. The
Custers were warned by friendly
guides and Indians that Kain-in-the-Race
was the most formidable and
dangerous man in the entire Sioux
tribe, and that he would surely do all
in his power to carry out his threat
of vengeance. The Custers, however,
were Inclined to scoff at the Indian's
power of fulfillment of his oath.
After his escape Rain-in-the-Face
joined Sitting Bull and his braves.
It is a curious fact that, although as
sociated with Sitting Bull in many
desperate battles, Rain-in-the-Face
never had a high opinion of the old
